When you love both football and fashion, having to choose between the two can be a meticulous decision. Not quite a tomboy, not quite a fashion addict -- I find myself genuinely fancied by both. I was looking forward to the return of the NFL last Thursday, but happened to get invited to the intriguing Luxe Lane soiree the day of the season’s opening game. Since the invitation came by way of the reputable bombshell Miss Dunnie, who coordinates and co-hosts spectacular events all over LA -- and whose productions are always on point -- I didn’t want to miss out.
Summer just isn’t complete without a reason to wear all white.
For Angelenos last Saturday, that reason came in the form of a mass picnic -- accompanied by 2,000 creative individuals and festive table decor, all centered around live musical performances that kept the evening’s energy on 100.
After interviewing Nicole, coordinator and co-founder of Handmade Events, I had an idea of what to expect from the #PopUpLA2014, yet I was still completely blown away by the magic I felt the entire time I spent there.
One of the primary goals I set for my relocation to Los Angeles was to challenge myself to network, network, network. It’s a city in which I have very few connections, and before I arrived, I could count the number of LA-based friends I had on one hand.
Considering LA's infinite tank of movers, shakers, and people just like me with a dream and dedicated work ethic, I knew that I could really start building key relationships as long as I was confident enough to branch out.
Being invited to Draya’s 1st Annual Power Lunch gave me the perfect opportunity to do so, and it turned out to be a very exciting and beneficial event!
