Simply Stylist LA 2016 Recap

What a fabulous and stylish weekend this was! On Saturday I attended Simply Stylist, a fashion and beauty conference in Los Angeles at The Grove hosted by Catt Sadler. It was an amazing full day of networking, amazing panels, and a brand pampering experience. 

I've attended several conferences and networking events before, and I got to say Simply Stylist is one of my favorites! First off, they always have a pretty solid lineup of influencers in many different entrepreneurial fields such as bloggers, YouTubers, fashion stylists, hair stylists, and designers, which is nice to get a variety of insight. The keynote speaker of the day was Tyra Banks, and I had no doubt she would kill it, but her advice and motivation truly blew it out of the park for me. Tyra's words were beyond inspiring, and I left the conference feeling so empowered and driven. One of the best things I heard from Tyra was about how she often heard "no" during her career, especially when she was pitching her "America's Next Top Model" concept to numerous networks, and how that discouragement from others gave her the drive to succeed even more. It was truly a remarkable day filled with insightful panelists, and Tyra ended it on such a strong note. 

In addition to the panelists, I met so many wonderful bloggers and stylists as well. The best part of any networking event is interacting with many great like-minded people who share the same passion as you. Definitely can feel intimidating at first to put yourself out there but hey that's one the industry is all about and I really enjoyed getting to know fellow bloggers - some I even recognized from Instagram! 

And of course, it wouldn't be a fabulous conference without the AMAZING swag bags! I couldn't fit everything in one picture, so I had to take two images to capture all the goodness. Yes, that's how many complimentary gifts we got from the event! Honestly, I have no idea where I will store all these new goodies. The bet thing about the swag bag is they're all functional items that we want and need - like thank you stationary cards, foot petals, hair products, skincare items, etc! 

Definitely plan on attending again next year, and if I could even make it to their next conference in NYC this summer I would! 

Hope you guys enjoyed this recap , and hope you all had a fabulous weekend!
