Simply LA 2017

Simply LA 2017

It was another day of sun in La La Land at Simply's Conference this past weekend at The Grove! If you are here to view the swag bag, go ahead and scroll down to the Simply Swag section.

I was introduced to so many new brands and learned so many great tips about blogging, business and style. Audrina Patridge form the MTV series The Hills was there repping her swimwear brand Prey Swim and speaking at a panel with Vanessa Simmons who was also showing off her collaborative line Bad Butterfly with Project Runway finalist Candice Cuoco.

I listened to speaker Jasmine Star explain how being resourceful and narrowing your niche can help boost your reach. She blew me away with the way she commanded the stage and I can't wait to apply her tips for creating show stopper content.

The event was powered by Nylon Magazine ! Make sure to pick up this months issue with Broad City's Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobson blessing the cover! Yasss Queen
