This year I made a promise to myself to put myself out there and grow as a fashion journalist. I traveled to Los Angeles this weekend to attend an event hosted by Simply Stylist. I got to learn a lot of valuable information at the break out sessions. Jenny (Margo and Me) spoke about Blog 101 while Calli Cholodenko (Something Social) spoke about social media. Although most of the stuff was targeted towards beginners, we got the opportunity to ask questions at the end.
We live in an era with social media and internet, so why not use it to grow professionally? So, for the past three months, I’ve been networking and putting my heart and soul into this blog. The most rewarding part was I meeting so many girls with the same passion as me, which is something I’m not use to. I hope to see many of them again at the next event!
I also got to meet @jeanettegetrost a fashion illustrator who did a lovely sketch of my outfit that day.
