I love sharing my inspiration and creativity!
So I was very excited when Eberjey asked me to host a Watercolor and Wine workshop for there “Be Inspired” series in Newport Beach. If you haven’t yet visited Lido Marina Village in Newport Beach, where Eberjey is, then you are missing out! It is such a cute collection of boutiques, cafes and restaurants, all sitting along the beautiful Newport Beach Harbor. Some of my favorites there including Eberjey is the newly opened Malibu Farm, Zinque, the book store and Le Labo.
I love the inspiration behind Eberjey’s “Be Inspired” in-store events…
Eberjey is more than the soft cozies you never want to take off. We’re about embracing passions, exploring limitless creativity & sharing everyday moments with our customers & community. Whether you want to further an existing skill or learn something completely new, join us at one of our retail locations for a special event that promises to be enriching. From intimate shopping nights to workshops, panel discussions & more, we invite you to come BE INSPIRED & enjoy our retail experience!
During the evening of my “Be Inspired” workshop we talked about letting go and using intuition to guide us to create something uniquely beautiful with watercolor. I always remind my workshop guests, art is not about creating the exact same thing as someone else. Watercolor painting does really require a sense of surrendering and improvising when things don’t go as planned, especially for beginners. All the ladies really displayed individuality in color preferences and brush techniques that we went over and I think all the watercolor paintings came out so pretty!
Rosé wine was definitely the variety of choice for the end-of-summer night but white and red were also available for tasting along with a perfect selection of snacks. All of this supported the relaxed and inspiring vibe for the evening.
It was a lovely group of women who spent the evening with me at Eberjey relaxing and getting inspired painting palm leafs, sipping wine and shopping in the beautiful store. If you aren’t familiar with the brand Eberjey, let me tell you they are known for there super soft must-have pajamas. They also have a variety of swimwear, loungewear, and the cutest little girl collection.
p.s. You can always host your own Watercolor and Wine workshop in home or at a venue of choice, contact me here for more info about booking. it is so FUN for bridal showers, birthday and bachlorette birthdays.

Grab your babes and join Kimberly from Ladyfolk Studio at the gorgeous home, floral and decor shop Studio La Fleur in Costa Mesa!
It's time to explore your creativity and sexy side with a guided watercolor art workshop where you will paint a one-of-a-kind boudoir watercolor painting. You and best babes will enjoy bubbly sparkling wine from Speak Wines, tantalizing treats, and 15% off in store purchases at Studio La Fleur the night of the workshop. Sounds like a good time, am I right?
It starts at 6:30pm, so that gives you plenty of time to get there after work. Don't worry about eating, we will have plenty of snacks and be setting the mood to wine down; ) I left the end time open but typically the workshops end in two hours.
I find it so important to spend time with your girls and truly relax and let go. No worries if you don't have a friend to bring with you, my workshops all about community and new friendships blossom at every one I've hosted. This will be a fun chance for you to try something new. No experience necessary for creativity or painting. We start with lots of abstract explorations and then you will be guided through a painting. At any moment I always encourage my workshop attendees to do there own thing. That is what creativity is all about after all. Let this workshop be a way for you to express yourself without thinking too much. My goal is to get you into that zen like flow when painting. Want to know more?
