On Wednesday, August 29th BellaNOR Boutique launched its Fully Loving Me Campaign with the help of some fabulous guests. Held as part of this year’s 17 Days of Fashion, we recognized Radio One® personality Desiree ‘Dezzie’ Neal and a portion of the event’s proceeds benefited D.I.V.A.S For Good. Those in attendance were treated to music from Ralph Penn & Friends jazz ensemble and light refreshments provided by Café Mills: Your Point of Destination. One of my fav fashion brands, Kiyonna, was kind enough to provide outfits for Dezzie, Cassandra Grant (BellaNOR Boutique’s Creative Director) and one lucky guest. We were also surprised by a visit from 105.3 WDAS radio personality and broadcasting LEGEND Patty Jackson.
In addition to recognizing Dezzie for her commitment to spreading a message of self-love and self-acceptance, the Fully Loving Me Personal Development Program was also announced. This program spans 6-weeks and offers women the opportunity to make an investment in themselves. It includes wardrobe consulting, make-up education and personal development sessions to help foster a sense of empowerment and a deepened self-awareness. Additional details about this program, including how to enroll, will be available very soon.
Special thanks to Empire Photography for capturing the event’s special moments. In addition, I’d like to thank our sponsors (and goody bag contributors) Skindura, Allstate Insurance – Warren A Clarkson and LegalSheild – Wanda Davis. And a very special thanks to all those in attendance, who helped make this a night to remember!
