The Fearless Conference

The Fall weather is officially here! I started to pull out my jackets and long sleeve shirts, I love this time of the year. Today I am going to be talking about my weekend at The Fearless Conference. 



This is the second year for this conference that was created by Melissa Alam. This conference was created to get women together to empower and encourage women to not be afraid of taking those leaps of faith and go for what they desire to do. You get to be around like minded women and get advice, tips and motivation from those that have learned to become fearless in different industries. You can learn more about the conference RIGHT HERE!!

A little while back I was contacted by Ahiyana Angel of Life According To Her to go on her behalf and takeover her Instagram stories. I was super excited and flattered that someone thought of me to do something on their behalf. I couldn't wait to attend the event. We stayed in contact to map out a plan for the weekend and she was very encouraging that I was going to do a good job. 

The Fearless Conference is held for two days. You can choose one of the days or attend both. The first day was full of workshops and a happy hour at the end. You were able to choose between two different workshop tracks and you could move from each one depending on the ones you were interested in, I was just blown away by the information and advice I was hearing. One of the workshops featured Jess Edelestein, co founder of PiperWai. Her story of how she turned her side hustle into a multi million dollar business was just amazing. Her company, which sells natural deodorant was featured on Shark Tank and I was just soaking up everything. What stood out to me was when she said that you have to be resilient. I loved how she didn't let anything get her down and she stuck to what she believed in and has become successful. I also learned from another workshop another way to really use Pinterest to make inspiration boards. I feel like I have been using it wrong all this time lol. I also learned more on how to use social media to my advantage. After all the workshops were done, we got to enjoy a happy hour so we can relax and network with other attendees. There was also of photo booth so you could take some fun keepsake pictures.



I had the pleasure of conducting an interview with Melissa for Life According To Her and she is so down to earth and so sweet. I love that she created this event for empowering and uplifting women. You can check out the interview on Life According To Her's YOUTUBE CHANNEL!!

The second day was full of keynote speakers, Live Q&A and a few panels. Before everything started, there was lunch, the photo booth and you could also get you hair and/or makeup done and take some professional headshots. It was also a time to network and talk among the other attendees.








After all that fun, the day began with keynote speaker Amanda Steinberg founder and CEO of Daily Worth and Worth FM. She was such an amazing speaker and really encouraged us to know about our finances and how to really invest and save. There was live Q&A session with the co-founder of LOLA, Jordnan Kier. She helped launch a tampon subscription service (we got a sample in our swag bags lol). I love how she just went against the neigh sayers and put out a product that is made with 100% cotton. Next we sat in on a series of panels from different people taking about how to manage your work/life balance, how to be your own boss and how women can stand in a male dominated workforce. I loved hearing everyone's advice, perspectives and encouragement. 



After everything was done, it was time to go home and apply what you learned. I just love that it was such a judgment free zone. Everyone was super nice and down to earth. We all just talked and got along so well. It was refreshing to be around a group that is all about empowering other, wanting to see everyone succeed and just giving women that extra encouragement. I loved every minute of the conference and will be back again next year. I am so thankful to Ahiyana for the opportunity to takeover her Instagram stories and be reporting live from the conference lol. It was a little hard for me at first because I had my phone, camera and tablet at the same time. I was getting footage for both myself and Ahiyana lol. I was a pro by day 2! We need more women coming together for a positive purpose and spreading that around and encouraging others.

Book Review: Dreams Are Built Overnight

Can't believe my birthday is next week, next Monday to be exact! I just want to have a nice, relaxing day. Today I am bringing you another book review (I know, two in one week lol)!



I have to say, I really proud of this guy and everything that he is doing now. I actually went to elementary school with David and he was a pretty cool person(and still is lol). Before this book, he started a company called Sleep Is 4 Suckers which sells apparel with a message behind it. David also expanded into motivational speaking and is a pretty dynamic speaker. I really wanted to support him and read this book because I was really drawn to the title of it.

I honestly did not want to put this book down when I started reading it. I read this book every free moment I had because I really wanted this information to sink in. You can really visualize what David is saying in this book and really picture the message he sharing. He really does drop a lot of amazing knowledge, tips and advice in this book.

Happily Ever Johnson: Registries, Rings and Things

It is crazy how fast this wedding is approaching! I can't believe it is almost February and June will be here before we know it! We have done so much with wedding planning and trying to make sure we have everything covered. First we started with finishing our registries. We started them but it just didn't feel complete. Earlier this month we attended a Sip and Scan event at Macy's. They had representatives from different brands such as Mikasa, Kitchen Aid and All Clad to answer any questions about products and to help you pick out the things you would like to put on your registry. They had a DJ there, passed hors o'derves and mocktails.

Here we are with the scanner having registry fun lol

We didn't have our formal or everyday dinnerware on the registry and finally picked those out. It was hard trying to decide what to go with. For everyday, I was looking for something that was durable since we have a 5 year old and dishware that was going to last. For our formal di…
