One thing I love about blogging is having the opportunity to meet other positive women, and my first event with the Blog Fab Fashionistas (BFFs) was full of positivity, pampering, and gut busting laughter.
The Blog Fab Fashionista group was created by Oh Nikka for bloggers to have an opportunity to network with one another, and local business, via a tweetup (a group of people meeting up at the same place to live tweet the event they are experiencing together). There have been several BFF tweetups to date and the “Pampered & Martinis: Night of Luxury” was the most recent I was invited to.
When I tell you I had fun, that is a complete understatement. Anytime I can lounge in my pajamas, get pampered, eat, drink, and laugh until I snort…well it really can’t get better than that. From the moment I walked into Sol Oasis I felt welcomed, and completely at home, by Nikka and the Sol Oasis staff.
The BFFs were treated to mini manicures, mini pedicures, mini facials, and chair massages by the Sol Oasis owner and staff.
KaSaundra (Sol Oasis owner) is just as sweet and nice as she can be. While receiving a mini manicure she and I chatted about where she was from (NY stand up), the fabulous salon paintings she hand painted, and the body products line (Bootsie and Sass) she created.
There was also tasty bites on hand, Lemon Drop martinis, and fresh fruit infused water. The martinis were one of the hits of the night and I have the outtake pictures to prove it, but I’d have to kill you if I shared them. *wink*
Many of the women in attendance are bloggers and entrepreneurs, and the tweetup was an opportunity for several of them to showcase their respective businesses. If you follow me on Instagram you know I purchased the most fabulous spiked bracelet from a fellow BLM Girl, Lynn, I can’t wait to wear. I also met my new blogger bff in my head, Cha’Kiva, at the tweetup. Cha’Kiva designs handbags and accessories and was rocking a pair of her custom creations at the tweetup. Lakeisha Dixon, author of “The Victorious State of Mind,” was also present to discuss her new book. Lakeisha is a powerful speaker and almost had me doing the “ugly cry” and “church sway” when she graced us with a lovely inspiring poem. Not to be out done by the inspirational book and fabulous accessories, Sophia Soso Harris-Starnes provided us all with a sample of her soo soo tasty cake balls. P.S. I totally want to do a ball joke, but my momma may be reading this. *waves* Hey mommy!
In addition to the night of pampering, Nikka raffled off several prizes, and everyone left with a goodie bag stuffed with nail polish and a Carol’s Daughter sample.
As you can tell the BFF event was fantabulous and I can’t wait until the next one. Please drop me a line and let me know what events you’ve been to recently, or are looking forward to attend.
XOXO, Miss Foodie Fab!
P.S. Here’s some more pics of the event. You know I’m all about the pics, honey!
