Lysi Takes Houston: C&C Style Summit Recap

Hey Ya’ll! This past Saturday I attended the Create & Cultivate  Style Summit here in Houston,TX. This was my second year attending and it was just as good if not better then the year prior. If you haven’t heard of Create & Cultivate then you are seriously missing out. C&C is an organization that hosts conferences for women nationwide. C&C offers a platform where woman can acquire tools and advice on how to create the career of their dreams. These conference have hosted key note speakers such as Kim Kardashian, Chrissy Teigen, Lauren Conrad, Tia Mowry, Issa Rae and more.

Ok now that you know all about Create and Cultivate and all of it’s feminine ferocity let’s get to the style summit…

Influencer Line-Up

I’ve never been one to fan out over any celebrity but I do have a long list of girl bloggers that I stalk. Some of these awesome woman such as, Jaserah Asad were speakers on the panels at the summit. If you are not following @SimplyJaserah you need to be! She’s not just a blogger, traveler and a fashionista she’s also an engineer in the oil & gas industry. Can someone please tell me how can one woman be so fabulous?!  Jaserah dished on not compromising her faith, diversity in the beauty industry and how having one foot in the beauty/blogger world and the other in the oil & gas industries “keeps her balanced”.

Carrie Colbert, another one of my blogger favs was also amongst the panelist.The best way to describe @carriec  is with her own tagline…#morecolorplease. This fierce momma is full of life, content and COLOR. The best advice given all day probably came from Carrie when she asked all the bloggers in the audience to “not work for free”.  This was so valuable to me because, there have been times I have considered working for free for the “exposure” but the truth of the matter is, if a brand or client values my creative ideas and what I have to offer they should be willing to pay for it.

There were so many great panelist such as Courtney Kerr, who was hilarious and unapologetically herself. As well as other influencers  Stephanie Taylor JacksonAshley Seippel, Meggan Morehead of Somewhere LatelyKrystal Faircloth and Madison Payne. Keynote speaker, Elizabeth Chambers wrapped it up with an insightful conversation on how she manages a career and team along with mommyhood.

The Gift Bags

Oh my goodness…The gift bags were bomb.com!  They were filled with goodies from some of my favorite brands including Bobbi Brown & Quay Australia and special offers galore. I also snuck a few  Smashmallow Smash Crispy Marshmallow Rice Treats into my bag and let me tell ya’ll they were sooooo good & only 130 calories!

The Decor

Lately, I’ve been super crushing on dark green furniture so needless to say I was in LOVE with the forest green NOVA chairs  as well as all the other fabulous furniture provided by Loot Rentals .  The florals were gorgeous as well with pops of coral, bright pink and just the right amount of greenery. The decor was exactly my style, simple yet it still made a statement.
