Creatives Link Up

Anyone who knows me knows I love networking, meeting new people and learning from others. I started my monthly JD Brunch Series because I would see where blogger meet-ups were hosted but none of the attendees look like me.  As the saying goes, “If opportunity doesn’t knock, build a door.” So that’s what I did, I reached out to a few other bloggers, fashion and beauty influencers and the brunch series was formed. I’ve gotten such a huge interest from non-blogging creatives and male friends that I decided to kick off a Creatives Link Up Series.

The event was held at the Loa Bar located in the International House Hotel. I stumbled on the hotel while working during Essence. The lobby was extra comfy, smelled divine and Lauryn Hill playing at the bar….can you say sold?! I am always looking for picture worthy and unique venues and the bar  was definitely that. The drinks were super cute and delicious. Shoutout to the best bartender Nick for keeping everyone’s glasses filled!

So here I am thinking I was just going to have about 20 people in attendance and about 50 came through styling and profiling! I had 3 Rules for the night. Introduce yourself to all the attendees, Post Post Post and use the hashtag and last but certainly not least, I challenged everyone to create a fashion worthy moment in the hotel! I chose the restroom. I don’t think I’ve seen a more beautiful one.

I want to give a shoutout to my blogger boo Sam for creating the “Ultimate Moment”. If you need a pose instructor hit her up!
