There is nothing better than spending a Saturday in a room full of 600 plus badass women! That’s what we did over the weekend when we headed to the Create & Cultivate conference here in New York. Ash and I have been lusting over Create & Cultivate for a couple years now, and we were so excited to be able to attend.
If you are unfamiliar, “Create & Cultivate is a movement for women looking to create & cultivate the career of their dreams.” Head on over to their site to learn a little bit more and how you can get involved.
The Create & Cultivate conference is one very long, but immensely productive day. There are two tracks that you can do, so Ashley and I chose different tracks so we could learn the most. One was focused more on the business side of blogging and lifestyle brands, and the other was focused more on the creative side.
We heard from so many amazing and talented bloggers and business women throughout the day. Some of my favorites that we heard from were Andi Dorfman, Arielle from Something Navy, Jessica Franklin, Mica May, Rebecca Minkoff, The Brooklyn Blonde, and Lauryn Evarts from the Skinny Confidential.
I need to talk about the food and the snacks for a minute because they were phenomenal. We started the day with coffee from Rise and Superfood smoothie bowls from jamba juice. Lunch was provided from Sweet Green and Meatball Shop. Throughout the day we had snacks from Bare, Mrs. Thinsters, my favorite Kombucha, Noosa, La Croix, Jamba Juice and Crown Royal.
The pop up market was amazing to network with brands and other bloggers, as well as gain insight to amazing products. We made our own birchbox’s and picked up some essential oil rollerballs from Saje Wellness.
One of Ashley’s favorite panels she attended included Rebecca Minkoff and Kendra Scott. We love hearing all about Girl Bosses and their stories.
Kendra also had an airstream parked outside with some products. You all know how much we love Kendra Scott, so we were super excited to go over there and browse and pick up a few things.
The end of the day in my opinion was the absolute best. We got to hear from Piera Gelardi from Refinery29, and then the Queen herself Gloria Steinem!!! She was absolutely incredible. I think I took the most notes during her talk because I wanted to remember everything that she had said.
Overall, we had a fantastic day and learned so much. We now want to leave it open to y’all! What content from us do you want to see? What do you like that we already post. We want to hear from you! Leave a comment below and let us know what you like! Can’t wait to hear from you!
