Bloggers That Volunteer

I definitely have a passion for volunteering when I can. I think that blogging is amazing but even more amazing when you can contribute to those younger than you to give them some inspiration.

I was asked by the lovely ladies of Red Sprinkle to come and speak at the summer program at Ron Brown Elementary School. They were lucky enough to be able to teach a group of teenage girls about the blogging and fashion world. They had days of learning about make up, styling, blogging, and photography.

I had a great time teaching them about blogging, modeling, and photography. They were at first hesitant about getting dolled up and taking pictures but they all ended up getting involved and it was a great experience.

I enjoyed taking time out to teach them about my blogging world and my modeling past. I think all of us should take time to talk to our youth because I wish I had a lot of older people take time out to volunteer and talk to me about things they were involved in to inspire me when I was in high school.  Continue reading

Pop Up Beauty Lounge

I had a chance to attend the Pop Up Beauty Lounge hosted by Nife O. of  Skinny Hipster (www.skinnyhipster.com), and fashion/beauty blogger, Naja of NajaDiamond.com (www.najadiamond.com).  The event took place at La Petite Marmoset which was transformed into a live fashion and beauty lounge.

Their were day to night hairstyles shown live by Adrin “Seven” Washington, of Seven and Company Hair Studios, cupcakaes from Red Velvet Cupcakes (YUMMY), and live music from DJ Mim (she rocked!).  There were also gift bags with goodies given out and a raffle to win a few things.

It was a pleasure meeting these ladies over the event. I thought this was a well done event and look forward to future events.  A portion of the proceeds from sales at La Petite Marmoset went to benefit the Red Sprinkle Fashion Camp, which encourages entrepreneurship in creative careers amongst young women in the DC metropolitan area.
