I know it's been awhile since I actually blogged an event but I'm back! I'm kind of selective about which events I attend now. Let's keep it real, I'm not a photographer, so standing at the red carpet taking pictures of people isn't what an event blogger does, and sometimes that's what the organizer's want you to do. They will let their friends and the "socialites" come in and just hangout, but want you to just take pictures and not even enjoy the event. Often times I'm like damn, my brand has 300,000 plus fans, and I'm making moves behind the scenes in the plus size and mainstream industry, but the "socialites" get more respect than I do... And these people actually know who I am!!!... So with that being said, I just don't go. My purpose of blogging is to bring the event to those who weren't' able to attend, to actually assist with promoting the brand that's actually hosting the event, and to have a curvy girl such as myself in the mix and not just slim eye-candy :)
If I just stand at the red carpet what Is there for me to share as an event blogger??? And did I mention the photographers are not getting paid; Atlanta is not Hollywood yet!... So again, why would I just want to stand at the red carpet and take pictures??? I'm just saying ME, Chrisy Chris, the lady who's known for Brand Promoting???
But last night was different. I got a chance to see what African American Millionaires look like! That's motivating enough for me to come out!
Check out the pictures from last night's viewing party for the World-Renowned Cosmetic & Reconstructive Surgeon, Dr. Michael Jones and his wife, Emmy-Award Winning, Journalist, Actress & On-Air Host, Mrs. Cathleen Jones.
Guest were greeted with this beautiful ice sculpture and edibles!
Free drinks and what I call "one bite" food!
( my favorite part, lol)
My homie! Lord Daze, The owner of Scrilla Guerillaz Magazine ( Remember when I used to do radio and write for the magazine???... I'm getting back to that too!) You may remember Daze from Season 4 of Love and Hip Hop Atlanta. If you don't - stay tuned, he's a star character in the upcoming Jodeci movie!
Curvy Celebrity Photographer, Untamed Royalty! I met her a long time ago standing at the red carpet (lol). She's been cool ever since! Shout out to the Curvy Girls like myself, all up in the mix.
Looking gorgeous and showing off her baby bump! I sure wish her mom, Mama Wyatt would have came out too. That lady is so fun and funny! And she always compliments me for holding it down for the curvy girls :)
