How to dress up your graphic t-shirt

Top Atlanta Lifestyle Blogger, Jewel Hazelton of Eat.Drink.Shop.Love shares how to dress up a graphic tshirt

I’ve recently become obsessed with graphic t-shirts. Every time I see one with a cute phrase I have to purchase it. I love a good T-shirt that I can just throw on with jeans or dress up with a skirt and a pair of heels.

The weather is starting to turn cooler in Atlanta and I thought this would be the perfect outfit for brunch with friends when paired with a leather jacket.  The top is from J.Crew (Sold Out) and this skirt (on sale) is from Madewell.

This J.crew “Salut!” top stood out because of its bold font and bright blue color. Salut means in hello in French and graphic tees are a great way to start a conversation or get a message across.

Create & Cultivate Conference: Seattle Edition

I just got back from Create & Cultivate in Seattle. Create & Cultivate is a full day conference for female bloggers, creatives, influencers, digital marketing professionals and entrepreneurs. Each quarter Create&Cultivate hosts the conference in a new city. I missed Create & Cultivate when it made its way to Atlanta last fall. I was already planning a trip to Seattle to visit my best friend who lives there this fall so when I found out that Create&Cultivate was happening, I had to purchase a ticket. 

Weeks leading up to conference I had been under the weather and was concerned I wasn’t going to be able to attend. But everything worked out and I boarded a plane to Seattle from Atlanta last week. I’ve been looking forward to attending this conference for months because I had heard so many good things about it from other bloggers. 

Create & Cultivate was amazing and unlike any other conference, I had attended. The energy was awesome and it felt good to be in the company of so many amazing women who are doing great things in the industry. Everyone was invested in helping each other flourish. 

Attendees were broken out into two separate tracks during the day. One track was focused on women looking to launch a business or take on a new career path and the second track was focused on content creation, social media and blogging. I attended the second track. Panel session covered topics like how to create snackable content, how to stay creative in a fast-paced and digital world, and advice from the blogging veterans like Emily Schuman from Cupcakes and Cashmere and Gala Gonzalez. Some of the themes from the day were focused on encouraging women to think outside the box, find other mediums than social media to tell your story and be prepared to disrupt your industry. 

The one thing that attracted me most about attending Create & Cultivate was that they paired you with a mentor during the conference. My mentors at Create & Cultivate were Maxie McCoy and Adrianna Adarme from A Cozy Kitchen. I’ve followed both of their career paths for a while now, so it was amazing to be able to chat with them in person and ask them for advice. 

The keynote lineup was the amazing! The keynote speakers were Brooklyn Decker, Mandy Moore, and Issa Rae. All millennial women changing the game in their particular industries. 

If you are a female entrepreneur or a woman in the creative space, I highly recommend that you attend Create & Cultivate when it comes to a city near you.The next city should be announced soon on the Create & Cultivate Instagram account

 

Hey Ya’ll

Hey Ya'll Eat.Drink.Shop.Love

Hey Ya’ll! It has been almost two weeks since I’ve last written a blog post. Let’s just say life has gotten the best of me lately and I haven’t had time to write a blog post or find some creative energy to do so. If you follow me on Instagram, you know that I recently graduated with my Master’s Degree in Integrated Marketing Communications from West Virginia University at the beginning of May. After 16 months of writing hundreds of research papers until the wee hours of the morning. Let’s just say this girl is tired…

In addition to having the burnt out syndrome. My weekends have been jam packed and after work all I’ve wanted to do is exercise, cook dinner, or spend time with friends. Let’s just I’ve been taking some time to myself these past few weeks to find some balance again and just breath and enjoy life. It has really been refreshing. I’ve also got some new projects I’m working on behind scenes that I’ll reveal sometime to you all in the next few months. So stay tuned!

But for now I’m back to blogging and I’ve got some exciting blog posts to share with you over the next few weeks.

You’ve probably noticed I’m been quiet around here lately. I published my last blog post in January. My life lately has been a little crazy lately with managing my full-time job, finishing up grad school and trying to fit in some me time. 

I love blogging and this space is a place for me to express my creativity. 

I have 10 weeks left until I’m done with grad school! Can’t wait! I’m really looking forward it to because I have a new project that I’m working on that I’ll to reveal to you this summer.
