I live for a great Halloween party and this year welp I didn’t plan on attending one just wasn’t feeling it. I will be ready for next year for sure and I am trying to recruit some of my girlfriends to go with me as Vegas Showgirls!!! So while I am still trying to convince them to please help me achieve this “bucket list” goal you can view two of my past costumes that I just loved. What do you think? Yeah or nah?…..ya’ll be nice now LMAO!!!!
I just had to share this amazing product that I found while surfing the internet. This is for all of my fashion beauties who rock the Gel Nail Polish. This amazing product can be purchased from http://www.hammacher.com The Gel Nail Polish Remover would make a great gift for the fashionista in your life!
This is the powered grooming aid that takes the hassle out of removing a no-chip gel polish manicure without a trip to the nail spa. The tool has a sanding tip that quickly removes the tough topcoat of gel polish, allowing your nail polish remover to penetrate and work more effectively. A pusher head then gently removes the softened polish without harmful scratching of nails or cuticles. The pen-sized device is lightweight and easy to handle, providing spa-quality results in one’s own home. Also includes a nail file tip. Requires one AA battery. 6 1/2″ L x 3/4″ W x 3/4″ D. (5 oz.)
Thank you for stopping by my blog today!
Well last night I had the pleasure of attending the Hyundai smarter living event that was held at the prestigious and beautifully landscaped The Estate in Buckhead. The once privately own property at 3109 Piedmont Road was the perfect location for this event. The charm of the historical house nestled in the woods was truly a diamond that was hidden in plain sight.
Atlanta was the first stop for this campaign and in my opinion Atlanta provided the perfect backdrop to kick off this inspiring event and the revealing of the newly-designed 2015 Sonata. This event was pulling double duty because it also gave a platform for Atlanta’s femme-fatale sector and to celebrate the lives and accomplishments of everyday women.
The five influential panelists of women present in Atlanta were Shanti Das, Marshawn Evans, Myleik Teele Rashan Ali and Christine White who were openly candid about how they got their start in their preferred occupation and some major mistakes that were made along the way. I do encourage you to Google each and every one of those inspiring women or better yet visit http://www.hyundaismarter.com/ to watch videos of each and to learn more about their story.
The Garner Circle http://www.thegarnercircle.com/ who is a well-established and respected Public Relations firm in Atlanta put the magic touch on this event and believe it or not brought the entire city out to this event as they always do. The patrons came well dressed in their finest cocktail attire and were looking amazing. We were also blessed by seven-time Grammy-nominated American R&B singer–songwriter Kelly Price who belted out three of her hits.
This night was magical and chic and I am so glad that I was able to be in attendance. Below are some of my favorite quotes from the women on the panel that encouraged me to continue and never lose sight of my dreams. Again, check out http://www.hyundaismarter.com/ post a selfie and you could win some amazing prizes, learn more about the panelist and don’t forget to stop by a Hyundai dealership and test drive the amazing 2015 Hyundai Sonata. Check out the pictures and favorite quotes from the night.
Marshawn Evans: Listen to your inner voice, God never fails you.
Myleik Teele: Do not just have one channel of income.
Rashan Ali: I have a great village that supports me…create your village.
Shanti Das: Don’t be afraid to ask for what you want…know your worth.
Christine White: Don’t shy away from the unknown you are capable of handling it.
“Glasses in the air…..and “clink” we made it!!!!”
So I was scanning through Eventbrite looking for events that might be worthwhile attending and stumbled upon this event. I was so moved by the video that I immediately purchased my ticket to be in attendance for this fashionable event. I absolutely loved the video and the women that were in it and how passionately they spoke about fashion even at the youthful age of 93 years young!
I usually don’t broadcast an upcoming event but I think this one will be worth your time to check out!
Hope to see you there!!!
Thank you for checking in with me on this nice crisp autumn day! This past weekend was packed full of events and I am proud to say that I made it to all of them which is an outstanding accomplishment for me thank you very much. On Sunday I had the pleasure of attending the highly anticipated second installment of the B Fab Awards which was held at the Westside Cultural Arts Center. I must say that I will continue to support this event year after year because this event is always planned and executed with professionalism and class.
Tiffini Gatlin who is the founder and CMS (chief millennial strategist) for Tastemaker Magazine is an amazing women and inspiration to women entrepreneurs to say she is fierce is an understatement. She is the mastermind behind this awesome event that highlights and gives a platform to some of the most influential bloggers of our generation. There is always something new and fresh to experience when you attend the B Fab Awards, this year the theme was beauty and the beauty lounge had complimentary beauty stations that were catering to attendees. There were stations to have your make up done, hair styled and even a Henna station that were creating amazing Henna tattoos.
This event brought out the best of the best in the blogging world and I saw many of my favorite bloggers in attendance looking fabulous. This is not your typical Atlanta event the B Fab Awards encourages you to dress to impress and the style of the attendees was on level 10 I tell you! Below are some highlights (via http://www.tastemakermag.com) of the concept behind the B Fab Awards and categories of nominees and winners. I can’t wait for next year’s event I know that it will be bigger and better than ever.
•Tastemaker Magazine kicked off its first Bloggers in Fashion and Beauty Awards (also known as B. FAB Awards) in Atlanta, Georgia on March 24, 2013. The inaugural event sold out with over 200 fashion and beauty bloggers, media and brands coming together in a 10,000 square foot loft.
•The idea was simple, create a formal celebration that allowed for a specific niche of new media who are changing the dynamics of style, beauty and lifestyle brands around the world with one click and bring them to one city to celebrate and award their influence.
•The B. FAB Awards has set the bar for being the first formal award show of its kind in Atlanta to nominate and award bloggers in fashion, beauty and lifestyle for their accomplishments of not only being influential bloggers, but for single-handedly turning their blogs into brands.
The B. FAB Awards is excited to continue to encourage our participants to be fabulous, be unique and to be themselves. Their blog is a representation of their individuality.
Here are a few of my favorite categories and winners!
Lexus Style Blazer 2014 Winner: Tiffany Olson http://www.tiffanystyleblog.com
Best Curvy Girl Blogger 2014 Winner: Marie Denee http://www.thecurvyfashionista.com
Best Style Thrifter 2014 Winner: Rashon Carraway http://www.Rashoncarraway.com
Visit http://www.tastemakermag.com to view all of the categories and nominees. This was a great event and I can’t wait for next year! Check out the pics below!!
Oh and there were 4 amazing designers that displayed their collection and I fell in love with The Ava Don stay tune for a write up on her and her fabulous brand!
Thank you so much for checking in with me and visiting my blog today I really appreciate you. My gosh where should I start so on Saturday October 11, 2014 I attended my first “Bloggy Boot Camp” that was organized by SITSGirls ( http://www.thesitsgirls.com ) and I had no idea of what I was about to experience that day. I will start off by saying that this was the best investment I have made thus far for myself as I journey into this wonderful world of blogging. The information that was given within this 8 hour course was almost indescribable to say the least.
Now I will say that yes blogging has taken this world by storm and just about everyone has a blog or is working on starting a blog and for that I congratulate you. The expectations I had for attending this event was to come out a better blogger and learn small tricks of the trade so that I can take my blog to another level. I left this boot camp with a true identity, a plan to execute, sisterhood and a plethora of information that will guide my blog to achieve all my goals and become very lucrative.
Bloggy Boot Camp Atlanta covered so many things that I thought the best way to write this post would be to highlight some of the information that was shared by using bullet points in my post. The information that was shared not only by the organizers Tiffany Romero and Francesca Banducci but the four person expert panel provided information that was priceless, at times I felt overwhelmed but in a great way. All of the speakers were amazing to say the least and even some bloggers that have been honing their craft for years shared valuable insight as well. I was so honored that I was among so many great women because the event was sold out and I just made it off the wait list to attend!
This post could easily become a 15 page read I tell you!!!! As I sit here and type I am still trying to wrap my mind around everything that I have learned and it’s still moving at the speed of light. Okay, take a deep breath and here we go:
•Social Media platforms are super important so if you don’t know how to use it…..LEARN! Also make it easy to follow you.
•Marketing and crafting content and best networks for your brand- No wonder brands don’t work with me…my site SUCKS! That’s what I was thinking but now I know how to correct that problem!
•You have to know your worth- This friends is an understatement.
•Invest in your brand and yourself. Start envisioning your success NOW!
•Where you put your attention is where you will get your results- NO explanation needed here folks.
•How to properly do a Give Away- One of my favorite topics and I will doing one very soon so check back often if not daily to my blog. 🙂
That is just a sample because after all this was an 8 hour course so there is no way I can share everything that was taught, however I will say that you NEED to attend the next Bloggy Boot Camp if you want to take your business to greater heights. This boot camp was everything and worth every dime because after all the information in my opinion was priceless. The venue was a great choice indeed you can’t go wrong at the Doubletree Hotel because yes every time I walked passed check-in I got a warm cookie. I met some amazing women from all walks of life and yes I did what I was asked and did create my own tribe. There were many statements and affirmations that were made but this one… ” Know Your End Game” keeps playing over and over in my mind.
Again, I will highly recommend attending this boot camp if you have the opportunity to. I listed some tips in case you do attend a Bloggy Boot Camp.
Tips for attending Bloggy Boot Camp:
Bring extra, extra business cards
Taking notes on a laptop that will be so much easier and faster for you than trying to write down information the sessions move fast
If you have a small tape recorder bring that along as well.
Bring a camera and last but not least…MAKE NEW FRIENDS!
I had an amazing time so please check out http://www.thesitsgirls.com and don’t try but DO attend the next boot camp if you can. You will not be disappointed! Check out some of the pictures below:
I had a great time, learned a lot and made new friends! What a ride!!!!!!
