Let’s face it. Living in New York City affords us countless opportunities that just may not be presented in other cities. This week, I had the honor of breaking bread with an intimate group of beautiful, talented, and powerful women at the Manhattan hot spot, Pranna. What was the occasion that brought this awesome selection of ladies together? None other than the screening of Iyanla Vanzant’s highly anticipated OWN debut, “Fix My Life.” Hosted by Demetria Lucas of A Belle in Brooklyn, this was truly one of the most inspiring events I’ve attended in a while

Less than a year into her bold career move, the future couldn’t be brighter for this ambitious scribe. Get up close and personal with A Belle in Brooklyn today on In Her Shoes!
