This past weekend I had the opportunity to attend Blogging Beauties Media Girls On Tour. The event was held at Kiss Studios and sponsored by Event Services & Lottabody. All I can say is the event was very empowering. It was an amazing gathering that highlighted some of Atlanta’s most influential women in media. I also had the opportunity to meet instafriends in person and connect with new media influencers.
Awarded with the"Outstanding Women In Media" Award were creator of RHOA, Princess Banton-Lofters & Married To Medicine’s, Quad Webb-Lunceford.
Hosted and moderated by Anisa Brenee, the other panelists included journalists Marie Denee of The Curvy Fashionista, Fox 5 Atlanta Anchor, Marissa Mitchell, 11Alive News Anchor, Neima Abdulahi, Dash Radio Personality, Kierra Wagstaff, Lori Jay, SVP Marketing at TV One Networks, Jazzy Mcbee of Streetz 94.5.
During the panel discussion these ladies dropped so many gems and nuggets that I left motivated and encouraged. At the tender age of 40 I’m still trying to get a good foot hold into the fashion and media industry and at times the journey can be discouraging. If I had to point out one moment during the discussion that made the biggest impact was the part where Lori Jay and Jazzy Mcbee both encouraged the crowd to keep pushing. No matter your age, always be willing to learn. Be teachable and willing to listen. And don’t be afraid to put yourself out there.
Those in attendance had the opportunity to receive a complimentary massage from Six Figure Spa Chick. Shop with vendors Arelia’s Dream, Atl Henna, J Dow Fitness, Bodi Glaze, and Treasures & Trinkets and live music by DJ Baby Drea.
