Events

These blog post are about events I’ve attended in various cities and states.

When you try to remain professional while Denzel Washington interviews you

Hey Cuties, Last week was so epic that I had to make sure I took it all in. Don't get me wrong. Going to the White House last month was epic, but this one was monumental and I did not see it coming. While covering the Fences movie red carpet, I interviewed Denzel Washington. {Pause for reaction} I legitimately met him and his beautiful wife face to face.

Stepping out of my comfort zone in the name of Girl Scouts

Hey Cuties, At the end of October, I was telling my girlfriend the rest of my year was dry.  I wanted it to go out with a bang but my calendar was bare. Ever since I uttered those words I've had blessings upon blessings bestowed upon me. I am proud to say I was ready for each one of them. I didn't know what was coming but if you stay ready you don't have to get ready. On Saturday I was invited to speak for the very first time. #BucketList I was honored to speak at the Keys to Leadership: Girl Scout Conference on Leadership & Inclusion at American University.

The truth about Black Girl Magic, Mom Melanin, Sequin, and Make-Up

Hey Cuties, Last week I got all fancy and hit the town with a bunch of moms. We put on our festive party clothes, left the kids at home with someone responsible and had a girl's night. A girl's night on a Thursday evening.  The invite said A Holiday Beauty Fete; get fancy, come to Bloomingdale's, Lancôme will be there and District MotherHued had planned an evening of fun.  The #DMVMomTribe showed up and showed out and fun was had.

My Big Dream Came True at the White House

On Tuesday one of my dreams came true. After 7 years and 11 months, I made it to the White House. Lady Cuties & Mr. Cuties your girl covered the FLOTUS Michelle Obama’s National Arts and Humanities Youth Program Awards Event. #NAHYPAwards Shout out to my media crew Moms N Charge, The Style Medic & Sisters With Beauty for taking in this magical experience with me.  Let me walk you through it all.

This Battle of the Sexes Game Night Will Make You Plan Your Own

Hey Cuties, I have been going so hard for MimiCuteLips this year that I hadn't had a real chance to just chill with my friends. Babe and I have attended some weddings here and there and I've had a pre-birthday Brunch with a few.  But, on Saturday I found a way to blend everything together. #MyReason because our friends are dope and we always have fun with them. I thought it would be cool, but I didn't know just how epic it would really be. I had a birthday on the 18th and Babe had a birthday on the 27th so we decided to do a post birthday celebration. A Battle of the Sexes Game Night, tailgate style to be exact.

The truth about the Taraji P. Henson revealed in Around the Way Girl

Hey Cuties, I had another uber busy weekend, while it was a great I'm exhausted, I'm looking forward to hibernating a bit in the winter. Our temps went from three days of a sunny 80 to a windy 65. On Saturday I headed downtown to the National Museum of Natural History and I had to fight the throngs of people and the wind that was forcing me to walk in the opposite direction. Skinny girl problems, I know. Did I mention that I drove around for a full twenty minutes looking for parking? If you've never been here, welcome to DC. Where our parking sucks and when you do find a spot we will charge you two arms, two legs, one lung and half a fingernail. Seriously.

Do you like Simplistic, Powerful and Luxury Cars? WAPA Rally 2016

Hey Cuties, Last week I attended the Washington Automotive Press Association - WAPA Rally, in Kent Island, Maryland. For those of you familiar with the Maryland area, it right across the Chesapeake Bay Bridge. I've hung out with some of the folks at WAPA during the Auto Show Media Day event each year in DC. This event was a first for me so I wasn't sure what to expect. I knew they would have tons of cars and we would get to drive them. However, I didn't know what that looked like or how it would be executed.

10 Ways to Help A Loved One Cope with Breast Cancer

Hey Cuties, We are now ten days into October and the world has been painted pink.  October is a month of many things, for example, eight more days until my birthday #1018. Among-st all of the other causes Breast Cancer Awareness is the most popular. The NFL rocks their pink in support as well, you know because real men wear pink. MimiCuteLips boldly and proudly supports the efforts to finding the cure. My mother and mother-in-law are both breast cancer survivors. Last year I shared information on BRCA testing and how and why one would consider it. I shared my Mom's Cancer diagnosis story back in 2011 and I gave you the truth and raw emotion that came with her diagnosis. This will help you understand why I ride so damn hard for this woman. 

I’m Judging You, Are you Judging Me? Do-Better

Hey Cuties, I came back from Key West on a Monday and that Tuesday I had the pleasure of attending Luvvi Ajayi's Book Signing event at the new National Museum of African American History and Culture Museum. It is the latest edition to the Smithsonian Museums in Washington, DC. I was really looking forward to this event because Luvvi had another book signing event while I was still in Key West and I was mad I missed it.
