So it’s the day after Thanksgiving and many of you are either recovering from a turkey-induced coma or out taking advantage of the Black Friday sales. Definitely not knocking the mass retailer’s hustle, but while you’re helping the large corporations get larger, don’t forget about the smaller businesses in your area. Local brands need love too…and lots of it! For many smaller stores, it’s do or die time so let’s do our part to support the hearts of our communities. Here are a few small businesses I think you should check out tomorrow for Small Business Saturday. Oh, and they just so happen to be owned by Fly Female Entrepreneurs. Does it get any better than this? I think not. Ready, set, shop!
As many of you know, last night I had the honor of joining forces with my favorite beautypreneur, Ms. T. Bernie Bernard of COCOACHiC Beauty to co-host the “Haute Strut” Stiletto Power Speed Networking event. When she approached me with the request to collaborate I didn’t have to think twice. It just made sense. We’ve always admired each other’s work and both wanted to host a NYC event this summer so it didn’t take long for us to hit the ground running. Between the two of us, I really don’t know who’s schedule is crazier but thank Goddess, everything came together flawlessly!
Saturday night I made the trek over to Englewood, New Jersey to celebrate one year in business with Fly Female Entrepreneur, Dorian Grace. As the owner of DLUX Boutique, Dorian opened her doors for a one year anniversary shop, sip & mingle event complete with in-store specials and fabulous giveaways.
