4 proactive things to do while waiting to land a job

So you quit your day job for your day-dream and now your day-dream is turning into a nightmare. Or something like that. Well, don’t panic. If you, like me, still feel strongly about your decision to leave a position, remember why you did it and keep on believing.

I’ll admit, today wasn’t the most inspiring of days but I always come across some hopefel reads that lift my spirits. According to Forbes, 2014 is the year for women entrepreneurs. That’s exciting and encouraging because we’re all in the same boat: shifting our dreams into fruition. Glass ceiling what?! Tuh.

Weekend at a glance: wear your good stuff #84

This year, I’ve decided that I’m going to wear my good stuff. At my old job, I was on my feet a lot, so I wore flats the majority of the time. I’ve neglected my heels for far too long. It’s time to put them to good use.

Sunday, I made brunch plans with my new friend, who is an interior designer, Niki. I met her via social media a long while ago but we first met in person at my first blog event last year. I was so excited to see another shorty, lol. Anyway, I wanted to catch up with her because she’s awesome and has an AWESOME story, and to eat, of course.

I appreciate her so much for connecting women in Atlanta. Much success to you, boo.

Wardrobe rush with tai beauchamp

Last Wednesday, I got to chat with an incredible young woman: the fashionista slash philanthropist, Tai Beauchamp. She wears many hats but on that night, she was InStyle magazine’s Style Ambassador at the Macy’s Wardrobe Rush event. We gathered to hear Ms. Beauchamp give us styling tips and answer personal questions as well.

I really love when I meet truly genuine and down to earth celebrities (or maybe she’d prefer to be called a “personality”??).

Anywho, it was a fab event. Food, bubbly and fashionable people. I was even included in a blog for street style. BOOP!

Weekend at a glance: i need to learn how to use my camera #68

warning: this post contains a hell of a lot of photos.

About a month ago, I went on a whim and purchased a new camera. The quality of photos on my iPhone was just not enough. And, I don’t have enough storage space on my phone. I love the camera but clearly I don’t know how to use it. All weekend, my pictures were coming out super blurry and it was really pissing me off. It wasn’t until last night that my friend brought to my attention that I had a nob thingie at the top to switch settings. I NEVER NOTICED IT BEFORE!!!! Man, I’m so pissed, but whatever.

Friday

I attended a pretty cool ‘Penny Candy’ exhibit at the Loew’s Hotel for artist Hebru Brantley. He is a Chicago native but studied film at Clark Atlanta University. His inspiration for his work comes from the comics of his younger years as well as the works of notable artists such as Jean Michel Basquiat and Keith Haring.

His clientele include some familiar famous folks: Jay-Z, Lil Wayne, Russell Simmons, amongst many others. Check out an interview of him here.

Weekend at a glance: laughter #58

Friday

I’m so glad I got the opportunity to see the Atlanta Ballet. Thanks to Mattie of the Atlanta Style Bloggers, I was about to see an amazing performance by the New Choreographic Voices. MAN. I’ll discuss it in Wednesday’s post. It was absolutely phenomenal.

The best and most hilarious part was when my friend Naomie (see: short girl; red pants) got chosen to go on stage and dance. I could not stop laughing. Most importantly, I couldn’t stop thanking Jesus that it wasn’t me the dancer picked. I can’t dance to save my life.

Cupcakes and condoms

In honor of National Women’s and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day, Co-founders of The Red Pump Project, Karyn and Luvvie, decided to present an event around several U.S. cities. The Red Pump Project is a nonprofit organization that raises awareness about the impact of HIV/AIDS on women and girls.

To commemorate this day, I attended Cupcakes and Condoms,  hosted by the Atlanta ambassador, Skyy Banks. We spent our afternoon mingling, chatting about sexual health and, of course, eating cupcakes.

Weekend at a glance: frida and the girls #56

I last posted about some inspiring young ladies a while back who are definitely women to watch. This past Saturday, Diamonde and Bella hosted a brunch at The Mosiac for their new women’s empowerment group, Be Bella. The sisterhood was created to promote inner growth which includes, but not limited to, spiritual, financial and emotional growth. I was really pleased to see women coming together to share ideas and supporting one another. It feels good to be surrounded by young, beautiful and powerful women.

Be Bella, “Changing the world one woman at a time.”
