A Little Happy + The Made In Mind Social Present A Cozy Cabin Holiday Party!

December Social Evite

The holidays are quickly approaching and we have a special December meetup planned! We are teaming up with A Little Happy for one big cozy cabin holiday party! What’s a better way to share some holiday cheer than with some amazing wine and creative minds? Our cozy cabin holiday party will be held at Pearl Wine Co. on Thursday December 12th from 6-9 PM.

Pearl Wine Co. offers the largest wine selection in the City of New Orleans with over 600 different labels. “It is my hope that Pearl Wine Co. will be a place the community can call home.  I want to create an environment where people feel comfortable, relaxed and intrigued by wine” says the owner, Leora Pearl Madden.

Mrs. Vintage will be helping us bring our cozy cabin to life with some of her amazing vintage decor and Kaylynn Marie Photography will be joining us again to capture the fun! Along with your wine, you will be able to enjoy some bites from Zea Rotisserie & Grill!

And of course, we’ll have some door prizes and swag bags with goodies from Dry Bar BleuPassion LilieLoomed NOLARiseLipscape CosmeticsE. Sabrie Studio and Kismet Cosmetics!

Wow! After months of planning, it was so great to see our very first Made In Mind Social come to life! We want to sincerely thank everyone who made it possible, and all those who came to support us!

We didn’t get pictures with everyone at the event because we were so busy mingling, posing in the photo booth and honestly really overwhelmed by the turnout. But here is a little recap of how our Made In Mind Launch Party went down! We hope y’all had as good of a time as we did and can’t wait until the next one in September!

Meet The Hosts

Now that we have told y’all why we started The Made In Mind Social, we thought we’d share a little bit more about ourselves individually. Being born and raised in New Orleans to equally as creative parents, we find inspiration in every aspect of our lives.

Meet Ciera and Jasmine of The Made In Mind Social

Meet Jasmine

Hi, I’m Jasmine Holzenthal, blogger at Sequin Crush, which I created as a way to share my personal style and current fashion crushes in hopes of inspiring others. It is my creative outlet for styling ideas, DIY projects, and anything that inspires me. I feel naked if I leave the house without accessories, and am not afraid to take a risk and put together an outfit that some may say, is a bit much… Even though they always end up saying “you can pull it off though”. Besides my love for fashion, I am very fond of warm weather, constantly crave sweets, and will brag about a good sale find any day! I always have new DIY or craft projects on my to-do list, and just wish I had all the time in the world to make them happen.

Jasmine Holzenthal of Sequin Crush

 

Meet Ciera

Hi, I’m Ciera Holzenthal, graphic designer specializing in brand development for creative businesses and passionate entrepreneurs. I also run a lifestyle and design blog where I share my adventures as a freelance graphic designer and everything that exhilarates me as an artist including DIY projects, photography, small business advice, arts and crafts and all things graphic design. It was created as a way to curate and share my obsessions with design and my goal is to create an inspiring place for both myself and my readers.

Ciera Holzenthal of Ciera Design

Announcing The Made In Mind Social

There is undoubtedly a strong community of creatives in New Orleans and it’s surrounding areas. The idea of a reoccurring meet-up came about because we wanted to bring all of these creative minds together so we all can get to know the people behind their work and share our passions and talents! After a few brainstorming sessions, The Made In Mind Social was on its way to becoming reality.

Ciera and Jasmine of The Made In Mind Social Working to Launch Website

Our goal is to build a community. Whether you are a blogger, graphic designer, artist, photographer, fashion designer, DIY lover, makeup artist etc., you are invited! By getting together every other month, we will be able to keep up with each others new projects, and have the chance to network and even plan some collaborations. We are all entrepreneurs, always creating things on our own, so why not have some fun while doing so at The Made In Mind Social!

We are planning our first event as we speak so like us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter or sign up for our newsletter so you don’t miss out!

Cheers to the creatives, whose ideas and talents are made in mind.

Ciera and Jasmine of The Made In Mind Social Cheers

We’d like to give a huge thanks to all of our friends and family who have helped us during the brainstorming phase and to Eef Designs, Zander White Photography and NOLA Cloud Hosting for their help in our site launch!
