Last November, Nicole Richie along with Ramey Warren, launched Pearl xChange in Los Angeles. The second Pearl xChange event will take place on November 5th in Los Angeles.
This is the second event of what is developing into a movement to foster community with women who are seeking to live full and empowered lives. As Nicole has said, “Over the last few years, my life has been enriched by so many different people and ideas. I feel I’ve been awakened to a new journey and I’m wanting to share that with others. This exciting day will include many speakers who I feel are in tune with seeking personal growth and fostering big ideas.”
The keynote speaker is Cameron Diaz, who will discuss her new book, “The Longevity Book: The Science of Aging, the Biology of Strength and the Privilege of Time.” The #1 N.Y. Times bestselling author of “The Body Book” explores what history, biology, neuroscience and the women’s health movement can teach you about maintaining optimal health as you transition from your thirties to midlife. From understanding how growing older impacts your body’s systems to the biological differences in the way aging affects men and women; the latest science on mental and physical health to why love, friendship and laughter are essential ingredients for a long, vibrant life, “The Longevity Book” offers an all-encompassing look at how the female body ages—and what you can do to age better.
