Downtown with Peggy Noland

Ruth and I rendezvoused at BOLD LA in downtown LA to attend a Savoir Collab featuring the creative force Peggy Noland.
We were a photographers' delight, but I have yet to see any images of us.
Isn't Ruth's hat AMAZING?

moderator Harmonie of Pop Your Shop and Peggy Noland.
Peggy is wearing one of her own creations.
Harmonie's discussion with Peggy was fascinating. Peggy started out in Kansas City, MO with the storefront Peggy Noland. She has made a second home in LA and has opened the shop, Wacky Wacko, in Echo Park.
Ruth and I will be making a field trip there soon! It's located at 1361 Sunset Blvd.

I sketched the event:
The audience was a fun, eclectic bunch:
Savoir Collab's mission [pulled from their website]:
Starting this year, we will be hosting monthly events centered around empowering women through sharing our intentions, mindfulness leadership, health & wellness, stand up & speak, and harnessing the beauty of collaboration. In 2017, now more than ever, it is important for us to come together and elevate our voices. These events will be intimate, invite only gatherings of female professionals, trailblazers, and influencers in Los Angeles.

#tbt Spring Break: Fripp Island, SC #MBsociallydriven


My mom takes an ultimate Spring Break -- every January, she leaves the "Lake Effect" Snow Belt of central upstate NY and "snowbirds" on Fripp Island, South Carolina until Easter-time.
-- You know it's coming... my 9 second #MBsociallydriven slide show:

Want to create your own mini slide show? It's made from geotagged Instagram images, US locations.
Click on THIS LINK while on your smart device, enter your zip code, choose five images from Instagram, et voila. 

I've had the pleasure of visiting Fripp a couple of times. Mom has a villa with beautiful wide sandy beach almost directly out her back door. Oh how I yearn to live with a view of the ocean!
If I had the time and energy, I'd add the time-lapse from this view. Maybe later...
Transport me here NOW!

The #MBsociallydriven phone app is still working, so I will keep feeding you 9 second slide shows!

Anyway, on the subject of FEEDING, in a New York 9 seconds:
