Music and tequila for good. | April 26th, 7-9 p.m.
Jose Cuervo Tradicional—the first and original tequila, made from 100% blue agave—has joined forces with Fenderto create the world’s first Stratocaster guitar using the agave plant. Both leaders in their respective industries, Jose Cuervo and Fender share a dedication to quality craftsmanship steeped in tradition and a passion for innovation. As the oldest experts in agave, Jose Cuervo Tradicional is partaking in an ongoing search to partner with creative makers and find innovative means to recycle agave materials. This latest partnership with Fender is the next step of the 100% Agave Project from Jose Cuervo, the original Cuervo recipe from 1795 and the first 100% blue agave tequila. Together they have created the first Stratocaster made of agave materials, which will be launching in May 2017. Young the Giant is the first to play the Stratocaster, demonstrating the light but vibrant sound, a direct result of the soft agave material from which it is made.

Kambucha and philanthropy
FlyingEmbers is cultivating a lifestyle of better-for-you alcohol, capturing life through the authentic space of culture, music, and artistic events—celebrating creativity, passions, and diversity. While the brand has had great success since launching, it was nearly destroyed by a wildfire that occurred near Ojai, California in 2017. Today, the team of passionate brewers credit mother nature and local firefighters for its escape from a potentially-disastrous ending. As a result, they give back 1% of its profits to firefighters.
The Organic Hard Kombucha is made from a sparkling fermented tea kombucha culture with adaptogenic botanicals and live probiotics at 4.5% alcohol by volume.. The smooth Organic Hard Kombucha line features innovative live vegan brews: Ancient Berry, Lemon Orchard, and Ginger & Oak. Flying Embers is a presentation of Fermented Sciences Brewing.

Influencer | Incredible Partnerships
Shutterstock + Amazon + Target
I am so happy to announce that our influencer partnership with Shutterstock, Amazon, and Target have been extended. I’m proud to work with companies I was a patron of long before having the opportunity to work with them. My goal is to share all of the great finds, hopefully save you a little money on your favorite things, and inspire the inner designer and curator within.
Shutterstock is a resource with thousands of images available to use that can make your blog pop, help tell a visual tale, and offer incredible editorial content. Amazon is where I personally spend most of my money and time perusing. I’m able to find everything from furniture to appliances, ink toner, incredible books, vinyls, and now it even affords me 20% off when I get my groceries at Whole Foods. Target is where I shop with my daughter to get everything our family needs including laundry detergent, clothes and home décor from amazing designers, bath care, and more.
