2012 was an unforgettable year for me and December’s “Beauties & Brains Behind the Brands” event was definitely a highlight. If you weren’t able to join us, we’ve got you covered. Our girls over at Mane Moves have produced an awesome video that truly captures the evening’s essence. Although I’d been living and breathing this event for the past few weeks, seeing this video was like TRULY being in the room for the first time. I definitely shed a few tears of pride and joy while viewing (yes, I’m a softie at times). There were so many brilliant and inspiring women in the room and so many jewels shared. Check out the recap video and be INSPIRED. 2013 is yours for the taking!
What do you get when you put together a panel with six of the hottest beautypreneurs in the industry? Jewels. Yes, jewels! Supreme words of wisdom to fuel your success. On Wednesday evening, Renae Bluitt, creator of In Her Shoes hosted a panel with six of the top women in the beauty industry sharing their tips on defying the odds and coming out on top. The discussion was honest, laced with lots of wisdom, humorous at times, and nothing short of amazing. Over 150 beauty, fashion, and lifestyle mavens mixed and mingled, networked, and enjoyed the conversation while indulging in wine and sweet bites from Evelyn’s Kitchen and Signature 7 Dessert Studios. Check out pics from the evening and stay tuned for the official Mane Moves event video coming soon!

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!
Last night the Polish Bar of Brooklyn and special guest host, The Fashion Bomb, introduced its “Five Point Beauty Focus” (brow shaping, makeup services, lash application, trend manicures, and pampering massages), in the first installation of the Get Pretty! event series. The brand’s PRO Beauty team, Rebecca Casciano and Starr Blackshere worked their magic on close to 50 beautiful faces as part of the evening’s festivities. Many, many thanks to Goodie Box Bake Shop, Nik Wes Creative, and all of the fly bloggers and digital scribes who helped make last night so amazing!
Last Thursday evening I joined forces with Brooklyn’s beauty hot spot, Polish Bar of Brooklyn, to celebrate the brand’s FAB 5 anniversary. If you’re not based here in New York City but read the blog regularly, you may remember Tricia Lee from her Fly Female Entrepreneur interview back in early 2009 when Polish Bar of Brooklyn was still the new kid on the block. With nothing but love for my fellow boss ladies, helping Tricia Lee bring her brand to life for this unforgettable milestone was an amazing experience. The event was titled FAB 5 and if I say so myself, it definitely lived up to its name
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!
Do you have plans for next Tuesday evening? Well if you’re in the New York City area, now you do! Join COCOACHiC and In Her Shoes for the “Haute Strut” speed networking event. If you’ve ever dreamed of going into the fashion, beauty, jewelry design, or catering industries, this is a must-attend affair created with you in mind. We’ve got the city’s flyest female entrepreneurs on deck to share wisdom, insider tips, and of course, priceless advice on how to STRUT (not walk) in their shoes
As you may recall, last week I gave away tickets to Little Pink Book’s Spring into Ownership event here in New York City. What a lovely experience! Imagine being in a room full of women business owners for a candid discussion on the challenges and opportunities faced in your entrepreneurial journey. Each of the panelists have achieved amazing success in business and were generous enough to share some of their secrets with those of us following in their footsteps
Ahhh, it’s finally Spring, that magical time of renewal and rebirth. Inspired by the budding flowers and warmer temps, we turn to our wardrobe and beauty products to express ourselves in vibrant, new ways. As we transition from winter wear to lighter layers and bright pops of color, we also want to revamp our makeup look for the season. One of the easiest ways to update your makeup is to choose a new lip color. If you love the power and attitude of a red lip, try this season’s biggest beauty trend, the orange lip. In case you haven’t noticed, it’s making a juicy comeback for Spring and Summer 2011!

Throughout the entire weekend customers will experience the brand first hand via custom mani and pedi services featuring Whoop Ash products.
