#ELLEInspires : The Ideas Lab
"hold great visions of what you desire and allow the future to catch up with your dreams."
- Gabby Bernstein, philosophy well being ambassador.
I was scrolling down my Facebook page on one usual evening when I found out about the ELLE's event. Without second thoughts after reading the event details, I secured one ticket straight away. It ended up as one of the greatest event I have ever attended.
On a Saturday morning located at White House Institute of Design, Sydney, ELLE Australia held an Idea Lab - where inspirational women and men that have considered success in their field with their brands come to this moderate room, sharing their story as well as tips and trick of being creative, how to start and also how to remain in the business.
The day started off with an introduction by Justine Cullen, the Editor-in-Chief of Elle Australia. Then she passed the stage to Karen Webster, the head of strategy and development of Whitehouse Institute of Design.
As I quoted from Karen during her 10 minutes speech, in order to be creative it is important to always be curious, dream and think big, explore and be ponder. Ditch out your anxiety, but be passion, take the risk and be courageous towards every idea that you have because no idea is a bad idea. Be brave to experiment even though experiment may be failing but it is not a failure.
Tash and Elle from Theyallhateus.com told us their stories before becoming world-famous blogger and having inspirational website as they remain us to be visionary, be ourselves and to always have the plans. Alice Tran, the co-founder of The Daily Edited quit her corporate job to start this mad accessories business (yep, I am one of TDE fans!), Alice believes in the ideas of collaborations with other artists' capability to bring the ideas discussion and turn that into reality.
And other inspirational conversations with speakers and influencers, we also had Michael Lo Sordo sat down with Jules Sebastian (Tea with Jules) discovering his magical brand.
At the #ElleInspires, they had Instagram competition where they chose the best snaps around the event, and guess what? Yeah, your girl (read: me) won $100 TDE Voucher! :p Teehee! I have not decide what I am going to spend that on, yet. ELLE Australia also prepared the best goody bag ever!
Overall, the experience of attending inspirational conversations by the pros has gave me sight and inspire the path and leap of faith I need to take in order to reach the dreams I have been dreaming. I fully understand that it will not come easy and how hard we all need to work for what we wanted, but it is not impossible. I asked Justine for her advice on how to be "successful" blogger and she quoted this "Be yourself. You also need to work hard, and have integrity."
