Rise Women Empowerment Tour DC

The Rise Empowerment Tour hit DC last weekend. The event took place in the Blackburn Center on Howard University's Campus.  I've lived here almost 30 years and I've never been on Howard's Campus.  This Tour is all about empowering women interested in entrepreneurship and looking for tips to take it to the next level. Each speaker was an existing black female CEO.  Bonus: The weather was perfect!

Alcantara & Earth Day

Hey Cuties,

Last week was a busy one for me I was being extraordinary every day. I teased a photo on FB/IG  about the amazing luncheon I had with Alcantara.  If you follow me I hope you saw it, If not you are tardy to this follow party.  Our luncheon took place at the Italian Embassy in DC. HIGH CLASS ALL THE WAY!

Chrisette Michele Pose ‘N Post Event {DC} & Interview

Hey Cuties,

The Pose 'N Post Symposium finally arrived in my city and I was worried about what I was going to wear. The weather was funky and rainy and not exactly warm so bare legs and toes were a no. I ended up with something comfy cute and my feet weren't hurting. Washington, DC was the fourth stop on their eight city tour. The event took place at the Hillyer Art Gallery, it is a unique contemporary art venue in Dupont Circle.  If you aren't familiar with the Pose 'N Post Symposium click HERE to catch up.

Macy’s Destination Spring Fashion Event

Spring has officially arrived, the calendar says so. If you are like me your allergies told you a few weeks ago. The folks up North should have had their last round of snow by now; and the kids have already started their Spring Breaks. Easter is around the corner and it is time for all things Spring.

Macy’s celebrates Destination Spring Fashion with Natalie Pinto of The Fashionably Broke and Sara Azani of Style MBA.  This event includes a runway show celebrating spring fashion and everything you need for your next vacation destination.

Disney Cinderella Special Screening

My girl and I were invited to a Special Screening of Cinderella on Saturday.  I told Nori about the event in advance and she was really excited. All she knows is she watches Disney Jr. all the time. The invitation encouraged the children to dress up as their favorite Disney character.  If you know me, then you know my creative  wheels were in full motion.

Tots to Teens Expo 2015, April 25th

I'm a Mom to a ten year old son and a three year old daughter. I am always looking for fun activities that slide in a bit of education. That seven year age gap is genius in some situations and a bit problematic in others. I struggle to find activities that both of the kids will enjoy. I struck gold with the Tots to Teens Expo. Finally an event that will cater to my big and little, it's educational and free JACK POT!!!

Issa Rae – The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl

Last week I attended the booking signing event of Issa Rae of the YouTube series Awkward Black Girl. The event took place at the Martin Luther King, Jr library in Washington, DC. I've walked past this library a million times but this was the first time I had actually gone inside. It was a packed house, so packed they had to put extra chairs out and even then people were still standing.  Issa's new book is titled The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl.  This is about her life whereas the Awkward Black Girl series is only a piece of her life.
