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.

We love and know Sonix as the uber cute, kitschy iphone case and accessory website... But what happens when they round up their squad of like-minded friends? Pop-up magic - that's what! Amongst the Sonix's product on Melrose is brands Ivy Kirzhner, Gorjana Jewelry, Emm Kuo, Bite Beauty and Stone Fox Swim. If the curated brand line-up isn't enough, the design team behind this pop-up made the entire space an instagrammable moment complete with a cherry blossom tree and swing dead-center in the middle of the shop and trending blush tones covering every wall. Sold? We thought so.

This pop-up is only lasting one more weekend so don't miss out. Shop the latest Spring ’17 collection at their exclusive FIRST EVER pop-up shop at 8017 Melrose Ave, Los Angeles 90046. Delivering up the details and dates behind this grand idea is Creative Director, Jillian Wheeler + PR Manager, Mallory Molinski.

Long Table Dinner

REPORTER: Alyssa Brown

We’re always chatting about the importance of gatherings to make people feel like they’re part of a community, but our gatherings would be null without great food and drink. The team at Canada’s Farmacie is totally with us on that point. This crew not only produces amazing pop-up events where they connect folks over delicious meals, but they do it all in the name of fundraising for local farms, small businesses and non-profit foundations. 

The Farmacie crew recently hosted a Garden of Eden community dinner in the poplar grove at UBC Farm in Vancouver to raise funds for Thrive Alive. They asked guests to show up in their Thursdays' finest (aka: farm chic) and prepared the attendees to expect the venue to completely blow their farm-to-table, garden of eden dreams out of the water. How much fun does that sound?! We turned to them for the whole story behind these amazing (and gorgeous!) events. Be sure to check out their event newsletters, because this is a team that’s worth keeping an eye on. More from Farmacie below.

REPORTER: The Venue Report

 

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.
