Myself, Erika(Creator of ChocolateChat Atlanta) and my friend Tiffany Celeste of Celeste Creations
I attended the Chocolate chat Business meet up on January 26th 2013 with my friend Tiffany Celeste of Celeste Creations. It was a very informative event where BrothaTech was the lead speaker.He spoke on how to use different applications on your smart phone, and tablets for your small business or blog. You can follow him at www.brothatech.com. At this event I completed a whirl wind of networking I met people that were bloggers,artist,writer,travel agents and more.
If you find that you are not able to network with the right people google events in your area so that you can connect with like-minded people.
Fro Fashion week Feb 2011 was a great success I was happy to be apart of this wonderful innovative event. I was on the promotions team as well as on the bloggers panel. Shout out to Tarin Boone who has since gotten married for such a wonderful event for the natural hair community. There were vendors, bloggers, a fashion show, a hair show and more. I was so grateful to be apart of the bloggers panel I had a chance to explain to beautiful naturals how, why and when I started to blog. I did not get a chance to attend the Sept 2011 Fro Fashion Show but I have posted it on my calendar to attend the Feb 2013.
Five Local Designers had a fashion show at the W. Hotel in Buckhead and the it was called FASHION ROCKS ATLANTA! A few of the designers were Shaye Blue, Cultivation Five, Tvachia, Red’s outfitter, The designers had nice vegetarian treats, a cash bar, live entertainment, vendors and what I love the most swag bags…… This group of designer raised money for Positive Growth, Inc. and all of their proceeds from the Fashion show went towards the third annual Jingle Bell Jam; it’s a large holiday party for the children of Positive Growth along with 150+ Atlanta foster teens living in group homes when I spotted the event I said why not it should interesting. Me and a few of my girls planned to go and met in the front of the hotel well it never works out that way..lol. I arrived first and quickly found out that valet parking was 15.00 well there was no way I was going to pay 15.00 for something I can do for my self. The valet driver informed me I could park down the street from the event.. wrong they were towing cars like crazy.. so I parked in the Lenox mall parking lot and walked to the W. Hotel and saved 15.00 in 5 min. I walked in and noticed that it was a different kind of scene then what I was use to. I get to the front desk and the to the guy at the front desk barely checked me in.. I thought I could have just kept my money and just walked in for free..lol.. At the end of the night my girlfriends and I did met a girl who just walked in and did not pay..smh.. I look around and see girls we find a sit on the third row so that we can get a good look at the fashion pieces. This was my first time attending an up scale fashion show so I am excited. Then boom it starts and all of the clothes were nice but nothing I would wear. I was also a little disappointed that they did not have one african american woman in the fashion show. They did have a african american male so that was good to see. We watched the show,talked,took pictures, laughed and most of all enjoying each other.
