Hey Cuties, I hope your Father's Day weekend was a breeze. Mine was perfect; we showered Babe with love and silence, and then the kids and I took him out for a dope dinner. Last week I attended my first paint nite event. People have been sipping and painting for some time now and although I wanted to try it I just hadn't. Now I can put a check mark in that box.
Hey Cuties, I braved the 90-degree temps to activate my super powers in celebration of WONDER WOMAN. I intentionally got all cute, and comfy and rolled with my Bloggy Boos to Six Flags for their Wonder Woman media day. They debuted the new WONDER WOMAN Lasso of Truth ride, it stands at a whopping 240-feet tall. It spins you around a 98-foot circle and hits about 40 miles per hour. Are you thrilled yet?
Hey Cuties, It is officially summer vacation in the MimiCuteLips household. I have a Kindergartner and an Eighth Grader. I'm probably more excited about this break than they are. Hello staying up late, not checking homework and relaxing a bit more. You know I love a good DIY but the Manchild suggested I do a DIT. What is that you ask? Do it Together. 12-year-olds are amusing. With his idea in mind LittleCuteLips and I did a DIT project.
Hey Cuties, Last week I spent my Thursday listening to live music and eating everything in view. I was out on the town by myself, by town I mean North Capitol Main Street in Washington, DC. I was in heaven I mean, I was at the Taste of North Capitol. I wasn't sure what it would look like, but man it was cool. The weather was perfect, it had the perfect breeze in the air.
Hey Cuties, I have the most magical experience ever to share with you. It was a Friday, and I was running around looking for white sneakers for my kids. I was making sure my son's shirt matched his white shorts perfectly. I was looking for cute white socks for Little Cute Lips; the kids and I were getting ready for the District MotherHued's inaugural Mommy en Blanc.
Hey Cuties, Last week I tramped around the city for the UPC Family Tour with my fellow local influencers. This tour was a chance for us to get to know some of the local businesses in our own city. We had schedule times to meet with the management and they even had some special things for us. It gave me a chance to check out businesses I wouldn't usually experience. Our tour took place in the City Center/Chinatown area of downtown Washington, D.C These are all fun places to visit in D.C.
Hey Cuties, Memorial Day has arrived and that is the official kick-off of the summer season. The pools have opened, the motorcycle season has officially begun and the nail salons are jam packed. The folks that neglected their feet during the winter months thanks to Uggs have reemerged for pedicure season and they are getting in formation. Thanks to the Puma's latest partnership with singer Rihanna, The FENTY® PUMA® by Rihanna collection has made slide sandals all the rage. They started out with satin bows, then furry slides and lastly jelly slides.
Hey Cuties, Essence came to hang out with us at the Longview Gallery in Washington, DC for their My City 4 Ways Tour. They brought a few special guest along with them and invited some local talent to join in on the fun. They also partnered with Ford who brought along a small fleet of rides for us to check out.
Hey Cutie, As promised on Monday, I've got the full recap of the St. Jude Wine Country Garden Harvest. The day started with Chef Carla Hall's Cooking Demonstration. That was followed by a Wine Tasting + Hors d'oeuvres + Entertainment + Live Auction. The big boom was the Farm to Table Dinner with Celebrity Chefs, St. Jude guest, silent auction and dessert.
