FEM: Female Empowerment Mixer
Thank You everyone who came out and helped make our first FEM: Female Empowerment Mixer a success!
A few months ago Micheal Spatola, creator of Lifestyle Boudior Photography, came to me with an idea... a Ladies Night unlike any other. A lot of female-centric events focus on retail. In my opinion personal fulfillment is not found in that handbag you can't afford or that pair of red bottom shoes. We wanted to do something different... a night focused on Motivational Education, Empowerment, and Sisterhood.
On Wednesday August 23rd
we made it happen!
Frogtown Brewery is a beautiful craft brewery and taphouse located near the scenic LA river. They have an amazing selection of unique beers that you can taste by 4oz pours or go all in with a full pint.
My personal favorite is the WAR ON SOBRIETY, a Double/Imperial IPA - 10.1% ABV 120 IBUs. I had a couple of these that night and although it didn't feel like war, I can say my sobriety was happily somewhat compromised.
