This year has been all about teaming up. I quickly learned that it takes team-power to create memorable events and I believe in the power of giving back. Putting these 2 concepts together led me to include Raleigh's Own Helping Hand Mission in the Bridge the GAP event.  I incorporated a toy drive into the event to collect Christmas toys for the Mission. I know that I will be putting these toys in the right hands. There is a special energy that comes from planning events that involves giving back on a grand scale. Planning and Coordinating with a such a busy person as Ms Wiggins, had it challenges, but it was well worth the effort. I almost became a permanent figure around the Rock Quarry Road Location. Any Event has many moving parts from Food to music to venue restrictions and so on. This one was no different; Mixing the African, Caribbean, and American Cultures Cuisine and Music is a bit complicated. Somehow we manage to pull it off and with a Christmas theme. Ms Silvia Wiggins was very happy with the results, she actually brought the full band, drummers, dancers, security and all to the event. See what she had to say about it for yourself on my event website

 BIG THANK YOU  to all those who partnered for a great cause. These cupcakes were a hit. We had 3 dozen yummy flavors like this cinnamon roll cupcake.
Bubsy Millions is an area Favorite and never fails to bring thr party

My Newest counterpart is Isaac Kuria, my Kenyan brother. When great minds think alike and come together, anythig can be accomplished.
Another BIG THANK YOU!!!

African Wax Prints in the Triangle

Ankara, Kente, Wax Print so many choices!! 
So I admit I have  slight love affair with the print. It's the colors like red which I wore for a year. and Orange that i wore another year, i alway had an affection for nice colors. African wax prints lets me have several at once. The patterns are beautiful. This obsession is not exclusive to me. Internet searches had proved that its a slight trend in this look. Okay not a big enough trend for Google but enough for my Facebook feed to be a little brighter. 

My lovely husband brought back these 3 dress after a trip home and that was it. Did you know that custom made dresses is common in Africa. If you want a dress just send your measurements. This is great not how do we get this custom made dress way from Africa , no lovely husbands for everyone right ?

We all have a friend or 2

Town of Cary Hosted Diversity Summit

Diversity Summit
We all had the same look of confused amazement when told that Town of Cary would be hosting a conversation of this nature. I admit I too was optimistically cautious. This Diversity summit was held in the Cary Arts Center, a beautiful location. They had 3 separate panels to discuss Diversity in Church, Community and Corporate America.

The Martin Luther King Jr. quote : "it is appalling that the most segregated hour of Christian America is eleven o'clock on Sunday morning." was the inspiration for the first panel. This was a fitting way to start the discussion on such a still touchy topic. The panelist were composed of 5 of the largest and most noticeable church leaders in The triangle area. 

Each pastor has a unique perspective on Diversity in church and why more church are not diverse. 2 of the panelist Pastor Benji and Pastor Lewis both stated that their churches were at least 40% non white. While Pastor Andy could boost that he had the most watch churc…

The Bornatty Experience!!

The Bornatty Experience!!

With vivid colors and extreme style, and multicultural influences Bornatty’s fashion line is a true one of a kind. I was pleasantly surprised to get the invitation to the Charity Event to benefit the homeless.  What a fabulous show… I sat near an American and an African attendee, just where I seem to always fine myself. The Oooo and Ahhh were the same, everyone saw something to love. The Swag level had me wanting to grab a Lion Jacket for my own husband. It’s not every woman that can dress international men as well as women.
BORNATTY, wise designer Martone Evans is a soft spoken Caribbean woman based here in the Triangle area. She has infused her Island heritage in this amazing collection presented in this show. I was   impressed by not only the fashion but the other elements of the show. The musicians, Poets, and Models were a series of the who’s who of Raleigh.People like Bubsy Millions performed, the most popular Models like Brandi Crenshaw, Purusha Jones…
