Diva's don't have time to wait for opportunity to knock! Sometimes we just have to sashay on over and make them happen! It's true while being "smart assy ain't classy" a diva has to sometimes tell people to "kiss my sass" to get things going and that is exactly what happened!

So last weekend I attended Ashley Stewart's #loveyourcurves event to support some of the other local PRGirls and my PRSister who has a new gig that requires her to be suited & booted! And while the life of a PR Gal/Social Media DIVA may look like "The Glamorous Life" that Sheila E sang about it's NOT; we're just really good at spinin' things and posting the right pictures to make it look like it is!

So anyhoo while I was soo not MYOBing and tryna get my girl to try on somethings, while I was talkin' her up to the Ashley Stewart rep. I was hoping to get her a hookup to Brand Ambassador land...yeah but the "Rep" wasn't feelin me...

You know that saying  "when one door closes another opens?" , well as the "Rep" was blowing me off ...our Shopping Angel walks by and then doubles back. She interrupts me and my PRSister from our air mouthed argument to ask if she can help us. Before my PRSister could say no, I said sure she was like great!   We spent the next 30 minutes with our Shopping Angel who pulled some great outfits for my PRSister to try on but when it was all said and done she only felt comfortable buyin a belt! WOMP WOMP. But our Shopping Angel  was not done with us!

Now y'all know how my son's always tell me not to talk to strangers? Well I'm so glad I don't listen to them on the regular! Cuz guess what y'all our Shopping Angel, turned out to be radio host Terry Tlove  from Be100! That's right the "star" of Deb Antney's network Mizay Entertainment!

Guess who she invited on her show?? That's right US! And guess what else?? We're getting makeovers! Queue the music! She's got big thoughts, big dreams....dah dah dah   She wants to lead the glamorous life

Tahtah for now ....smooches...ps enjoy the pic

Diva's Come in All Sizes !

Last week two wonderful PR specialists the Curvy Fashionista and Gwen Wunderlich-Smith hosted a series of events around town for Ashley Stewart. OMG those plus size diva's live lavishly and chile do they know how to party!!

Now I know some of you are saying WTH??? You're barely a size 8 but hey wait now... there were those first years after becoming a widow, when I blossomed up to a size sexy 14! And then when I had the ex-factor in my life I stayed playing in the garden of plushness. And all I want to know is where in the heck was Ashley Stewart back then???

Anyhoo we hung out at a few of the Ashley Stewart events this week and walked their pink carpet, cheered the ladies who participated in the fashion shows and other events it was great!

If I were a plus size diva.... I'd shop at Ashley Stewart! #loveyourcurves

There are always so many fun things to do in Atlanta in the world of public relations,social media and social tech! Enjoy the pictures and I thank you for joinin' me on my journey! Here's to a FABULOUS 2015! Tahtah for now ...smooches

A Diva In A Blue Dress

That's right SocialMMMDiva set the Georgia Entertainment Gala on FIRE!! 

Okay okay maybe not on fire but I certainly had people doing a double take! This past weekend was a BDD here in Atlanta! That's right Saturday was the 3rd Annual Georgia Entertainment Gala.  I know you're wondering how did I score such a sweet invitation to an event of this caliber. Well I'm a Social Diva of course! No seriously my client director Brandon "2Mill" Thaxton was on hand to present the 2015 People to Watch in the Georgia Entertainment Industry award; which he and his business partner Errol Sadler won in 2014 for their company Supremacy Films.

So anyhoo y'all know that I wasn't about to let him go up on stage without being there to support him. And so even though I have an extreme dislike for shopping during the winter months, when all the rookies are out. I set out to the mall to find myself a bad azzz dress! For some reason on this night the stars must of all been in alignment because I went into one store and found a dress a size 7 no less (yes y'all I was shoppin in the juniors dept, don't judge me)!Then my hair challenged self couldn't find not one cousin or cousin of a cousin in Georgia to do my hair! So I called my granddaughter's mom and borrowed her cousin and she hooked me up nicely if I do say so myself. But post in the comments your thoughts.

Now it's time to head to the GWCC, so I put on my blue dress, rhinestone shoes and UBER'd away !
Mmmmhmm you guessed it roadblock here I come! Just as the driver attempt to turn down the street to the Georgia World Congress Center the police had put up a barricade! Well the driver says don't worry they do that for the general public. They're going to let us through.Uhhh NO! They didn't let us in but I noticed they let a few cab drivers in but anyhoo I didn't have time to wait I need to walk that red carpet! Umm I mean... I needed to support my client...yes support my client...so I get out of the uber car AND walked the almost 4 blocks to the GWCC! You read that right....walked in my 5 inch heels!  It took me about 10 minutes but I wasn't sweatin' or messing my hair up! Y'all know I'm hair challenged.

As luck would have it there was no wind and no rain tonight so.... I still looked fabulous when I watched my client head on up to that stage to present this years award to the winner. Who turned out to be a good friend of the Supremacy Films family, Jasmine Burke! Did I mention that, this year it was hosted by actress Naturi Naughton of the Starz drama Power? Well it was that girl is kinda funny y'all...be sure to check her out on Power but keep in mind that is not a comedy!

Autmun Essie Bailey-Ford the creator of the Georgia Entertainment Gala did an awesome job with this year's event and I for one can't wait to see what she has in store for the 2016 event!  

It's been real y'all I had a great time enjoy the pic's but a sista on the rise work is never done so I'ma about to be up till dawn writing press releases and letting the world know that Brandon and his wooden bow ties by Ella Bing had the Georgia World Congress Center all a buzz!

Tahtah for now....smooches
