Kontrol Mag: Women of Style Power Dinner

Thursday, September 29, 2016
Suite Lounge
Atlanta, Georgia

Last night Atlanta's own Kontrol Magazine held a Women of Style Power Dinner  for women on the move in the fashion and beauty industry, while honoring Rozonda "Chilli" Thomas from the 90's R&B group TLC  as their influential and outstanding woman of the night!

 It was a very private (invite-only) and intimate event. 

I've gone to quite a few events at Suite Lounge ( don't forget to check out those posts) yet this one was very different. Perhaps that's why it was invite only! It wasn't overly crowded and I actually saw some new media faces and definitely some very influential women! I'm talking members of 702, SWV, Destiny's Child and more!

(Left) Twinning :) with Le Lee @therealleleeswv from the 90's R&B group SWV. First time meeting her, but she was super cool, especially when she realized we both had red hair ;)

(Right) The very friendly @iamlatavia an original member of the 90's R&B group Destiny's Child.

Looks like I'm not the only one who likes black clothes and red lipstick ;)

(Left) Singer Meelah @itsmeelah from the 90's R&B group #702.

It's always good to see Traci Steele (middle). She came up to me and was like I see you everywhere! I'm not sure if that's good or not, lol, (I've met her three times) but good thing she remembers me! I still remember when she first met me and asked me if I was single. When I told her I was she was like you cant be, you can't be! lol. Traci Steele is the best!

(Right) a dope Plus Size Advocate, Host, Brand Ambassador, Radio Personality, Blogger, Actress , Founder of The Grip Effect, and more by the name of YOUR'S TRULY :) If you've been following my journey you may remember me #BloggingInBlack for almost a year now. Black is my unofficial, yet official Blogger's uniform! October 2016 will make 1 year for me! 

Free is for me! 

Attendees were given complimentary Effen Vodka. Now, I'm not a vodka girl, but hey, it was free, and part of the experience! The best thing about blogging is the experience! So, Effen Vodka and Pineapple/Orange juice was my friend for the night, considering the fact I did not have my media partner because I couldn't do a plus one for this event. My friend told me I was lame because I only had 2 drinks... Hey, safety first! 

Dessert! It looked pretty good. Unfortunately I didn't try any because the dinner was still going on when I left, and I'm not exactly sure who the dessert was for. In order to actually participate in the dinner you had to have a special wristband. It's funny because a lady walked up to me twice thinking I was part of the dinner crew. Must be God telling me something.... Humble beginnings!...


Gift bags. Again, I'm not sure who those were for because I left before they were handed out.

The dinner table was nice and elegant. 

The table had pictures of Chilli spread throughout the table. She's a very pretty and petite lady!

I love this picture, although I look like an amazon over Chilli! She was so friendly! 

One of my followers found this picture of me and Chilli on the Wire Image website. Omg! One of my thighs is the size of Chilli's whole body :( Oh well, that comes with the territory! So for now, I'll take what I have!

Thanks for stopping by!

Published Again!

Scrilla Guerillaz Magazine 
Issue 16
Candlelight Vigil/Walk in Brooklyn, New York for Nicholas Telemaque

Time surely fly's when your're having fun! I have been working here and there ( something like a contractor) with Scrilla Guerillaz Magazine and Entertainment for almost 1 year now! I still remember my very first event because I broke my phone there :( Of course I wasn't happy about that, but I ending up connecting with a group of people that I can have fun with, and at the same time BE MYSELF, and see another side of the entertainment business with. 

Since then, I've gone to countless events in Atlanta, South Carolina, and different boroughs in New York that I may not have been able to achieve had I just stayed a solo blogger. Thank you Daze/Scrilla Guerillaz Magazine! I'm having so much fun! 

Not sure if you know or remember but my first published article was about a LHHATL event in Atlanta. I was so excited when I actually saw my blog condensed and published in a magazine!!! Look at me now, second time around! :) As usual, I'm forever grateful! This blogging thing is pretty cool after all ( at times, lol). 

My second published blog/event ( magazine article shown above) happened when I went to Brooklyn, New York on the 4th of July this year. I wrote a whole article/post about that so I'm not going into details. See below :)

Just know that I support those who support me, and I'm always looking to expand my network!

When I took this picture in Brooklyn with Zyoness I had no idea Daze would want to publish my blog post! Big Shoutout to Daze, ( The Owner of SG Magazine) for blessing me and for actually taking me to New York with him and his crew! 

Funny thing is though, although that was my first time in New York (I most definitely want to go back) I found out most of my followers are in New York ( on Instagram) !!!! Wow!  I loooooved New York, and apparently New York loves this southern Memphis, Tennessee girl! Time for another road trip! 

Again,Thanks For Stopping By!
