B retrospective...

Ever wonder what Prince was like before Apollonia, the little red Corvette and The Artist Formerly Known as...? There was a time when Minneapolis-born, Prince Rogers Nelson, was young, hungry, and striving to be the man we all know today. To see Prince in his formative years, check out Robert Whitman's exhibit: Prince: Pre-Fame at The Black & White Gallery in Chelsea. The exhibit is currently running through March 17th, 2007.


B out of the closet...part 2

The 1st Clothing Exchange, hosted by Hourglass Events took place this past weekend at New Song Community Church in Harlem.
The loft-like space provided the perfect setting for browsing.
The lovely ladies of Hourglass Events: Morgan, Dani, and Chandra.
Darcy, from Mary Kay, was on hand for beautification.
MK Satin Hands were a hit!
Julia held down Boutique Finesse, which offered the latest accessory trends to complement the finds from the clothing exchange.
Locals, Tiffany and Renee, came to check out the goods.
Kelli made deposits that didn't last long without being snatched up.
(i.e. the hawks lurking in the background)
Event hostesses, Morgan, was able to find a cute A.B.S. wrap dress...
...and Jen, from The-B-Life, got her hands on a never-worn Marciano stretch satin number (ignore the studded belt).
There were big shoppers...
and little ones too!
No item was chosen without careful evaluation...and the selection was on target for the most discriminating consumer.
The-B-Life raffled off a Nintendo DS Lite, complete with a Soduko game cartridge.
And the winner is...Stephanie! Congrats!
Everyone left with Hourglass Events goody bags, clothes in hand, and smiles on their faces.
Thanks to all that came out and made such generous donations.
All remaining items went to The Goodwill.
See you at the next clothing exchange!



B great...

Last night's after-work mixer, hosted by The Joint Interest ("JI") Group, featured an inspirational call to action by Dr. Dennis Kimbro. Dr. Kimbro challenged the crowd of young, black, professionals to be great and not be consumed my mediocrity. He rallied the young men to be (paraphrasing):" a turn off the TV and pick up a book brotha, a tuck your kids in at night brotha, a pay your child support on time and put a little extra in brotha..."
In addition to the powerful message, there was no shortage of drinks, great conversation, and R&B Top 20, given the party-atmosphere of LQ. When we ask ourselves where are all the young blacks in Corporate America, we need only to attend the next JI Group event. Last night proved that when we step out together, there is a great deal of power and potential under one roof.


B ambitious...TONIGHT!

B a Covergirl (or boy)...

It's becoming harder to ignore us on the newsstands - we're everywhere, which makes sense when you consider the impact minorities have on mainstream media. Lately, it seems like Jennifer and Beyonce' are in a run-off for Dreamgirl of the Year, but there's room for all of us! Don't forget to actually go out and buy these mags. If not, we'll only confirm the beliefs of naysayers who don't think we can gain the same circulation numbers as our non-ethnic counterparts. Take a look at a sampling of titles that recognize our contributions and relevance.

History in the making. Kudos to Anna - that's all.
B looks amazing as usual, and she's multitasking by modeling her Dereon swimwear. She's a true business woman at all times! Ladies, don't be afraid to pick up this issue too, you know you want to see the pics.Of course, Essence continues to honor beautiful black women and Jen couldn't be left out.

And Lady B likely holds a record for the most covers in a 3-year time span. She's doing it!

Life recognizes...

...and so do the other weeklies.

Last but not least, it's been a giant year all around!

Honorable mentions:

Get 'em Chris!

America Ferrara as the new CosmoGirl. Apparently, real women have curves and covers.

John Legend is more than a good voice willing to be consumed by the industry. He's on his hustle and looking forward to the future of the music biz.

Once again, Condi is looked to as a force in the direction of our great nation as we try to find our way on the international scene.

See you at the newsstands!

B out of the closet...part 1

...at least with your unwanted clothing! Hourglass Events, Boutique Finesse, Mary Kay and The-B-Life, are co-hosting a Clothing Exchange next Saturday, Feb. 24th. Start looking through your closets for clothes that don't fit, aren't your style, or you simply can't be photographed in one more time. Remember - your trash might be someone else's treasure.
All clothes must be in good condition and worthy of finding a new home (i.e., no holes, stains, missing buttons - you get the drift). The best part is that all unexchanged clothes can be left with us and donated to The Salvation Army. This is the perfect way to give back and get a head start on your Spring cleaning. See you next weekend!


B another year older...
