Last Saturday, a group of about 15 women gather at the Melrose Georgetown Hotel for the Curvy Girlz Lingerie Shopping Soiree. This was the second year in a row that I partnered with friend and former classmate Precious Williams to bring Curvy Girlz Lingerie to Washington, DC. While last year was great, I promised that this year would be even bigger and better and, indeed, it was! Thanks to support from our sponsors we were able to treat the guests to tasty nibbles and sips as well as provide them with gift bags chock full of goodies, including nail kits, coupons, tickets to a black arts festival in DC and even earrings from the newly-launched, DC-based company Roni's Jewels.

Besides being an opportunity to purchase tantalizing intimate apparel, the evening also offered an opportunity for empowerment. In the

midst of sharing the back story of how Curvy Girlz Lingerie came to be, Precious offered a testimony about the power of believing in your dreams and putting in the work - despite the naysayers - to see those dreams turn into reality. This struck a chord as there were several entrepreneurial women in the room. This was evident as sponsors Denise Belnavis of Denise Belnavis Photography and Donna Hudley of Curvy Chix Chariot presented shared their stories during our "commercial break."

Next, intimacy and relationship coach E.B. Davis of Cupid's Planner led a conversation about love in all forms - self-love, eros love, and agape love. (Aaaand, because we're a PG-13 rated blog we will just leave it at that. *lol*)

All in all, it was a FAB event and I'm so grateful for the support of my sponsors - the aforementioned Denise Belnavis Photography, Curvy Chix Chariot, and Roni's Jewels; Kym Nichole of WellFitCurves.com; and an extra special thanks to Marie Denee of The Curvy Fashionista who showed us love even though she couldn't be there in person!

I'd also like to thank fellow bloggers Nic and Vivi and industry friends Sherra of Ivie Rose Boutique and Marketha and Sharon of Curvy Chicks Consignment & Boutique as well as other frequent supporters of Curvy CEO (Sonya and Kim, I'm looking at you!) for coming to the event. I really hope you had as much time at the event as I had planning it!

    I had a great time at this event! From the atmosphere to the drinks to the snacks to the ladies and, finally, to the speakers, everything felt right. Can’t wait for the next one!
