On August 20-21, we hosted Anastasia Casey and The Identité Collective, a branding boot camp for creatives. This two-day workshop comes with the sole purpose of designing and building small, creative brands.

On Day 1, we arrived and were immediately greeted with colorful florals (courtesy or Anastasia herself), fresh-baked pastries and sweet, sweet mimosas! 

No detail was overlooked, as we were gifted swag bags chockfull of goodies from Tribeza, Mighty SwellBelong Mag, Olivia Kohl baubles and much, much more. 

...and then we got down to business. Pulling from her many years of experience repping top brands, Anastasia gave us the lowdown on all things social media, how to create a brand identity, business management hacks and how to craft solid mood boards. 

Decked out in only the best from 10th Collection, we took a mid-day break and dug right into a well-prepared and pretty damn delicious home-cooked lunch.

We thought nothing could top Day 1, but the surprises kept coming on our second day. We were instantly welcomed with cheery and bright Margot Blair Minis to take home!  we repurpose all of her mini vases around the house, so this was truly the gift that keeps on giving. 

Next up, was one of our highlights for the weekend - headshots courtesy of our bubbly, new friend Kelsey Butler Photography

We had an absolute blast cheesing it up with our fellow creatives and entrepreneurs!  We are all so busy that it was quite the treat and incredibly convenient to be able to combine long overdue headshot sessions and business education into one.

After talking shop, we took a break and enjoyed yet another lovely spread.  I mean... this girl seriously has us questioning our hostess skills.

After sippin' on Mighty Swell and noshing, it was right back to the hustle. We got in-depth advice and expert tips on how to up our flat lay game for those stellar Instagram and blog posts. 

Anastasia is our girl, but we always keep it 100.  She is by far one of the best instructors we have come across in a very long time. She truly wants to make sure that everyone she encounters succeeds. She takes her time to not only makes sure that each attendee understands the curriculum, but she will also do the work to make sure you are served long after the workshop is over.

She puts in so much time and effort to make sure that no detail is overlooked.  From the printables to the new community that was created, it was all done with thoughtful and knowledgeable execution.

I'm sure you all have serious FOMO right about now, but you're in luck!  She's headed back to our studio October 22-23, so we highly encourage you to jump on it!  You can get more details and register here.  Until next time, my friends!
