Last month I hosted my first ever IN THE LOOP event series on Self-Care + Wellness. It was special day for so many reasons, but to see a vision of mine come to life among a group of wonderful and local ladies was touching and empowering. 

More importantly, we learned lots of practical and real-life tips and tricks from our speakers, specialists and experts in the space of self-care, who explained and showed us what it really means to tend to your minds, bodies, and souls through mental health, natural and holistic beauty, and healthy, nutritional eating habits. I was filled with gratitude being able to host an event where we could collectively learn and share our stories all while building community with a group of local lovelies in my humble abode. 

My heart great with every laugh, smile and AHA! moment (we had many!) 

I truly believe in the power of connecting, inspiring, and sharing knowledge, so it was wonderful to witness new friends and connections forming before my very eyes. 

LA is truly a city of hidden gems, most of which I have come to discover are the talented women  who make living here inspiring! Thanks for all the local lovelies who made it out - your energy and enthusiasm were  felt. I am forever grateful! 

Here's to more events to come!

Hear What People Are Saying 

Kelly-Jo is doing phenomenal things with La La Local. It’s a gem of a website and she hosts lovely events that are both casual and informative. Whether a transplant to LA or a true local, I encourage everyone to join in and benefit from the smart and stylish resources La La Local has to offer.
— Dr. J. Johnson (In The Loop Speaker)
The La La Local Event was a fun, positive, and insightful! I really enjoyed being part of an event that included meeting new women and discussing our wellness on different levels such as mental health, mindful eating, and natural skincare and beauty. I enjoyed listening to the three female speakers and also having a group discussion about these pertinent issues in our lives. Even though I was born and raised in Los Angeles, there’s always something new to explore in the city and I think this event provided some new discoveries! I cannot wait for the next one!
— Lily (Local Lovely @ In The Loop)
I must confess I’m not into these type of events. I’m an introvert and I find them intimidating, but IN THE LOOP was intimate and the speakers were very empathetic, so I felt comfortable. The topic -mind, body, and wellness- was very relevant. I enjoyed all three speakers, but particularly psychologist Dr. Jeanine Johnson. I loved how she started the session by debunking misconceptions about therapy and highlighting the importance of mental self-care.

I loved the event and will definitely attend more in the future. Oh, did I mention I won a free 45-minute nutrition couching session? Yup, that was a plus!
— Lulu L. (Local Lovely @ In The Loop)
I feel so grateful to have had the opportunity to spend an afternoon connecting and learning from all the lovely ladies that attended and presented at the IN THE LOOP event.

I walked away from the event feeling inspired to keep in conversation with amazing women doing amazing things in LA! There was so much girl power in that room it felt awesome to embrace the passion and natural feminine energy within this community.
There was also so much synergy in the room, each topic and person was seamlessly connected with the next and the whole event had such a nice flow to it.

Thank you for graciously opening up your home and organizing such a fun event, Kelly-Jo!

I look forward to coming to future IN THE LOOP events :)
