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.

Happily Ever Johnson: 3 Months To Go!

*Que screaming and running around like a crazy person*  I can't believe we are three months away from the big day!! It seems like yesterday we just got engaged and started making plans and now it is almost here. I'm not freaking out yet (Lies, I am on the inside lol). I just want to make sure we don't forget anything lol. It seems like it is so easy to forget something when just about everything is going on. I'm getting into the swing of things in my new position and most of my focus seems to be there at the moment but I'm making sure to keep up with everything. I recently met with my coordinators (aka My mom,aunts and cousins) to preview the centerpieces. I'm so thankful for them stepping in and helping with the decor and planning. I'll give you guys a sneak peek at the centerpieces but you won't see the full effect of everything until after the big day.

Of course I drew my inspiration from Pinterest. I have spent so many hours on there and found so m…

Spring Fashion Trends

For many years I would say that I'm going to NYFW and then forget when it is lol! One day I'm going to make it there lol! Speaking of fashion, today I'm going to share a few Spring Fashion trends that I will most likely be wearing this season. (Images taken from the web)
Vibrant Stripes
I love wearing bright and bold colors when it gets warmer outside. This trend is super fun and such a statement. You can wear this in the office with a bold striped button up or out on the town with a maxi dress. 


One Shoulder
I really think this trend is super cute and flirty. I have seen many versions of the one should trend over the years and this one seems to be my favorite. I would probably wear this with a top or dress. 

Slogan T-Shirts
I know these have been around forever and this trend to me will never go out of style. There are so many slogans out there, it is hard to keep up with all of them. I do have a few myself and I love how you can dress them up or down.
