Create & Cultivate Conference

Hi guys! Hope you all had a great weekend! On Saturday I attended the Create & Cultivate conference in NYC and thought I would share a review on it today. First off, since I started my blog I have always been on the lookout for a conference to attend. If you've been following me, you know that I wanted to attend the Alt Summit but it got sold out. I then found another conference I attended in February which wasn't what I had in mind. Here is the review from that one. Then a couple months ago I saw on the site of one of the bloggers I follow that she spoke at a Create & Cultivate conference in Florida. I checked it out and saw that they were having another conference in NYC in May. I was beyond excited! 

This definitely met my expectations in terms of the kind of conference I wanted to attend. It had everything to do with blogging/entrepreneurship.  When I signed up I had the choice of choosing the GA (general admission) ticket or a VIP ticket. I couldn't afford the VIP at this time so obviously had to pick the GA. Once the event got closer you were mailed a box with your badge, a pin, notebook, pen, and your track (schedule). If I had gone with the VIP, I would have been able to pick which track I wanted.

I ended up with Track 1 which is good because it had a focus on creating content and getting yourself out there in terms of blogging. Track 2 was more for established bloggers. My schedule was jammed pack from 8am to 8pm. There were tons of things to do and see. I actually couldn't fit it all in! There were so many speakers that I was excited to hear such as Andi Dorfman, Helena Glazer from the Brooklyn Blonde, and Kat Tanita from With Love From Kat. There were pop-up shops such as French Connection and Kopari which I received awesome samples from. Kendra Scott herself was also there along with an airstream of some of her most beautiful jewelry and also new home decor. I can't forget about Birchbox where you can make your own box with five samples to bring home! I was ecstatic about that part!

I also have to mention that the Laura Mercier team was there touching up your makeup before you get a new headshot. If you've never tried her makeup, you are missing out! I have been using several products of hers for years and just added some new samples I got as a gift. And what headshot wouldn't be complete without getting your hair done?! Yes, that's right--attendees were able to get their hair done by beGlammed. I would share my headshot on here but unfortunately it's still not up on the site where they are being displayed. :(

I had the best time at this conference and can't wait to attend another one. The gift bag I received at the end of the night was amazing! There was jewelry, makeup, and skin products plus a ton of coupons! They surly did not disappoint. I cannot wait to try everything!

Below are some photos I took. I did not bring my camera so these shots are off my phone so please the excuse the lighting and messy angles. Ha! 

How gorgeous is this necklace!! I want it!

Hope you all have a wonderful day! 

Thanks for reading!
