All Month // The Rain Room at LACMA
Finally us westsiders can experience what all of our New Yorker friends were raving about: The Rain Room. This installation allows you to experience the nearly impossible: the ability to walk through a rainstorm without getting wet. It'll be up until March, but it is bound to get busy-- very busy. We suggest scooting over there before everyone discovers it is here.
November 3 // Women's Breathwork Circle
Ashley Neese, a certified breathwork and meditation teacher, is leading an evening gathering in Silverlake for an intimate group of women. She says, "this gathering is an invitation to slow down, take really good care of yourself and be witnessed in powerful ways." We think it sounds rejuvenating and healing, the perfect opportunity to slow down and practice self-care.
November 5 // Cheryl Strayed @ Vroman's Bookstore
This is a lady we can't get enough of. This month she'll be discussing her new book Brave Enough at an event hosted by Vroman's Bookstore. It is a ticketed event, and it looks like tickets have already sold out, but keep your eyes peeled in case they open up a few more seats.
November 5 // An Evening with Diana Nyad
In 2013, badass athlete extraordinaire, Diana Nyad, swam from Havana to Key West-- making her the only swimmer to ever successfully swim the distance without a shark cage. This month she is speaking with actress Marcia Cross at an event at New Roads School as part of the Live Talks Los Angeles series. This woman is the definition of inspiration, and we can't wait to hear what she has to say.
November 14 // Beginners Watercolor Calligraphy
Lauren Saylor of A Fabulous Fete is one of our absolute favorite calligraphers. Her work has a very particular aesthetic and a witty, playful style. This month she's teaching a watercolor calligraphy workshop in Fullerton. Guests will go home with all the supplies to begin doing some calligraphy work of their own.
November 21 // Holiday Wreaths + Flower Crowns with Farmgirl Flowers
