EVENT RECAP: Beautifully Being U Magazine Launch PartyMonday, February 17, 2014
Yesssss it's true that New York Fashion Week has taken over my blog, but event coverage and Outfit of the Day posts are back! I've also been in the middle of a move, so it's been hard to edit photos and get posts up so I hope you understand! Thank you for sticking with me, and I hoped you enjoyed my New York Fashion Week Coverage. I'll be sharing some more intermittently. Well I have a lot to catch you guys up on, from launch parties to interviewing supermodel Beverly Johnson! Let's start off with the launch party for Beautifully Being U Magazine that occurred February 1st. Last year Shunte Davis, CEO and Founder of Total Beauty Ladies Events asked me to be the featured blogger sponsor for her 2013 Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign. I of course said yes, and had a great time covering all of the Breast Cancer Awareness events she hosted last year. I guess I did a good job, because she again asked me to be the featured blogger sponsor for the 2014 campaign! Yay! Super excited to take part in everything that her and her leadership team have planned for this year.
The first event for 2014 was a launch party for Shunte's newest creative, a magazine! The magazine is titled Beautifully Being U. If you attended the 3rd Annual Fashion Extravaganza in October last year, you were privy to a preview issue for the magazine. The preview issue featured all my posts from that year covering all of the BCA events. On February 1st the official first issue came out with the leadership team on the cover! Aren't they just Totes Adorbs?

The event kicked off around 5pm with mingling and networking. I met some new members of Houston Fashion Bloggers, and stuffed my face with yummy chicken fingers and fries. I might have had a cocktail or two, I don't remember. There were also vendors on hand to provide fun goodies for us to shop, and yummy cupcakes from Ephiphanies (I may have had more than one of these too...and I DO remember that). The event was held at Zanzibar Lounge. Before debuting the cover photo of the magazine Shunte gave out awards to distinguished vendors and ladies in her Total Beauty Ladies Group (TBLG). Yes! Shunte also runs her own meetup and it's free! Do you live in the Houston area and looking for a great organization to network with fellow empowering women? Than TBLG is for you! You can sign-up HERE!
Yours truly was a featured interview in the magazine for it's first issue! I was honored that Shunte asked me to be in the magazine! The magazine will come out quarterly and proceeds of sales from the magazine will go to The Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc.
