Imagine being able to camp in Big Sur with all the warmth and comfort of home. Think about waking up in a private hideaway with the coastal breeze rolling in and the forest quiet mellowing out every muscle as you stretch your arms and legs on the wooden deck of a private hideaway. It technically doesn’t even have to be a bedroom behind you. It could be a guest suite, office, cocktail lounge, or yoga studio. It sounds magical, right? Well, it’s totally possible now.

This week's #BirthdayBucketList is the Autonomous Tent, the world's first transportable five-star boutique hotel. Promising freedom and adventure, Autonomous Tent enables a life of luxury without boundaries. Its name is a tad misleading, because while it looks like a tent from afar, it actually operates like a tiny cabin with the interior of a stylish hotel room.

In short, it’s amazing.

It has been said that 2017 is the year of the woman. In light of the recent social climate, the feminist movement has risen up with new life. It has visually increased and gained momentum by the hundreds of thousands this year. Many (both male and female) have joined in peaceful protests, women focused events and campaigns all over the world bringing people together and providing a platform for this relevant topic. With social media at an all time high, most women can relate to the pressures of competition. If one thing is for sure, this movement has inspired more kindness and respect between women, allowing us to take a step back and look at the bigger picture. 

One of the women leading the charge in inspiring women to empower women is Courtney Wall of Lady Killas, San Diego's monthly meet-up for women in the creative field motivated to lead, network and make an impact. February's event was hosted at Pigment featuring Space 15 Twentie's Event & Content Manager, Sheewa Salehi  and our Art Director, Sarah Laos. This event touched on the power of relationships in the creativity industry and friendships with a foundation of encouragement and motivation. Being The Venue Report, we're always in search for the inside scoop, so we recently chatted with the Lady Killa herself about her new endeavor and her life in the creative industry.

REPORTER: The Venue Report

We’re all about the new new here at The Venue Report so when we received an invite to Holy Matcha’s opening party, we jumped at the opportunity to see this anticipated spot first hand. Situated in the heart of North Park, a trendy foodie neighborhood, Holy Matcha is ready to assume the title of San Diego’s newest “must know” place. Get your Instagram ready, this all pink and palm cafe couldn’t be more photo worthy with it’s marble counter, brass fixtures, velvet pink booth, and palm print wallpaper. Seriously ‘grammers, this place is a photo snapping oasis. Oh, and they serve some pretty darn good (and inventive) matcha concoctions. We sampled coconut matcha, lemonade matcha, and almond matcha while sushi was served and guests mingled and obsessed over the design. We even got an on-the-spot matcha making tutorial from the barista, Mahala.

The ladies of BayBird PR also gave us the exclusive that Holy Matcha is about to be San Diego’s hottest new venue for not only weekend visits but baby showers, bridal showers, birthday parties and social events. No surprises here though as nothing rivals this unique, one-of-a-kind space in San Diego thus far. Talk about a matcha made in heaven.
