What’s the good word, y’all?
I’m exhausted. 🙂 Even though I need to remind myself on the regular that I am no longer in my 20’s or 30’s for that matter, I still run the roads like a mad woman. Well, I call it “living life to the fullest.” And I love to continue brining you the best in music, events and such as I go along. That will never cease, otherwise there would be no blog. And who wants that?
Any who, here’s a quick recap about what I got into for the weekend!:
Zadie Cosmetics make-up launch:
While my sister loves a good make-up line, I live for a wicked lippie. My lipstick collection is pretty epic. I love dark and luscious or vibrant colours to accent my skin tone and make my lips look glorious and succulent. Well, I found a colour from Zadie Cosmetics during their launch party at FUSE Restaurant on Saturday that suits my needs, and it’s entitled Vixen. Can’t go wrong with that! Their antioxidant lipsticks go on smooth and look stellar. It’s not drying to your lips at all, and I would be remiss if I didn’t state that they are a line made for women of colour! Their launch party was very well attended, kicked them 90’s vibes hardcore — I dare you to not move to anything from Mary J. from the My Life album — which had me dancing a two-step with event MC, hip hop dance, instructor Gregory Hines. Do I recommend that you try out their goods? Most definitely! You can check out the colour on me here. I think I am going to have to check out a few of their other colours and see what their eyeshadow has to offer. I’ll let you know when their website launches. Stay tuned!

Sister Talk Group – A Celebration of Sisterhood:
Where to start with this one. There is so much to say!
I was honoured to be asked to work on social media (Twitter) at the Sister Talk Group event on Sunday at Thompson Hotel. This group was birthed after an appearance on Auntie O’s (that’s Auntie Oprah, y’all) show. To encapsulate the power of the event in a few words is not even possible. Do know that it is an event that consists of digging through deep-rooted fears and sharing in a safe space for women. We don’t have many spaces to do so, so when you do find one, keep it close. The topic today was “can women get along?” Where there are many that are so quick to respond a resounding “no,” the event itself is a testament to defer the negative responses and it will force you to see beyond that. There were many discussions about loss, fears, relationships and more. It was weighted and the tissue was in abundance but it was so cathartic to see everyone leave with the glow of an illuminated lightbulb behind their eyes. Everyone imparted with a token of wisdom. It was beyond solid. Not to mention, we were trending at the number 2 Twitter spot as well! There will be plenty of info being put together about the event in the coming week. I’ll be sharing them on Twitter and FB. And you can also be sure to check my Instagram as well (check the right sidebar!). Congrats to Karlyn Percil and team to a fantastic day. I do hope to be granted the opportunity to work the room and social again!
