Having been in the blogging world for a little under a year now, I’ve met some pretty badass women. It’s so inspiring to me to see women I meet succeed at business ventures, on their blogs or in their careers. Corny? Maybe. But I think more of us need to start appreciating each other and all of the amazing things we’re capable of. Instead of tearing each other down or letting the green monster of jealousy get to us, why not utilize those strong women in your life for advice, help, inspiration… right?
Anyways. Tangents aside, three of my favorite Atlanta bloggers, Kale Me Kelly, Eating with Erica and Peachfully Chic have taken off on a really, really exciting new business venture called Girl Talk Series, and it’s giving me life. *hands up emoji*
Erica, Kelly & Allie of Eating with Erica, Kale Me Kelly & Peachfully Chic, otherwise known as the women behind Girl Talk Series.
In their first event of 2016, the “Find Your Hustle” brunch at Orsmby’s, we heard from women at Pink Barre, Bene Scarves, Spa Sydell and Atlanta Eats on HOW to find your passion and run with it. I feel like this has become such a thing, especially with us as millennials – this idea of “finding your passion” and incorporating it into your career/life. I think the first one or two years out of college, a lot of us just want to take the first secure job that comes our way, and then when we start to get complacent, we begin to search for that missing thing, that thing that lights us up and gets our heart racing. Believe it or not, it’s not always easy to find, so these women spoke on how it happened for them.
Based on their amazing advice, here are the 8 Commandments of Finding Your Hustle:

We are officially through our first month of 2016 and man, did it fly by. I mean, I literally feel like it was just last night that I was drinking champagne like it was my job to ring in the new year.
I’m excited about this time of year because there’s so many fun things going on, especially here in Atlanta. Between the festivals, concerts, wine dinners and more, you can pretty much plan out every weekend for the next couple of months – and if you know me, you know I’m already three steps ahead. So – why not help you guys do the same?! I don’t want anyone having FOMO so I’ve put together a list of some of the best events in Atlanta this February. Chances are you’ll see me at, like, all of them.
Friday, Feb. 5th – Celebrate the one-year anniversary of Colletta, Avalon’s hot spot for Italian food & wine
It may be OTP, but Colletta – and Avalon itself – are worth driving the extra distance. To celebrate their 1st year in business, they’re offering a $35 3-course menu and $5 wine and beer all night. Can you say “neverending Happy Hour?” More info here.
Wednesday, Feb. 10th – #TreatYourself with some of life’s greatest indulgences: cookies and craft beer
One of Atlanta’s favorite breweries, Sweetwater, is taking things to another level by hosting a Girl Scout cookie and beer pairing to make your hump day a little sweeter. More info here.
Saturday, Feb. 13th – Get ‘shucked up’ at Park Tavern’s Oysterfest
Complete with live music, ice-cold beer and oysters galore, this is an event you won’t want to miss. More info here.
Sunday, Feb. 21st – Drink more beer at Sweetwater Brewery’s 19th anniversary party
It’s no secret that Atlanta appreciates its beer, and there’s really no better place to be on a beautiful, sunny day in Atlanta than on Sweetwater’s patio with a cold brewski in hand. A $25 ticket gets you a *special* 19th anniversary glass + 10 tasting tickets. More info here.
Saturday & Sunday, Feb. 27th & 28th – …And eat more oysters at Steamhouse Lounge’s Oysterfest
For only $10 a day, why wouldn’t you? Another day filled with live music, ice-cold beers and delicious oysters. Obviously. More info here.
