A big thank you to everyone who attended May's Girls Night Out 'Turquoise Takeover" Party at Lona on Fort Lauderdale Beach! I enjoyed meeting so many new women for the first time, hugging all the familiar faces and seeing everyone in in all the beautiful shades of turquoise as we celebrated and raised awareness for Lung Cancer. Over 220 local ladies joined in the fun! This event kicked off year number two for the Ft Lauderdale Girl's Night Out event. It is wonderful to see how much the event has grown and I am excited about all the upcoming events this year.
If you missed this month's event, I hope you can make it to the next one at Terra Mare on June 20th. For now, enjoy this beautiful photo review by this month's featured photographer Jenifer Castilla of Jenifer Michelle Photography. She is as sweet and kind as she is talented!

Join Us at Escapology for April's Girls Night Out!
As the host for the runway shows on Thursday and Friday of the 2019 Fort lauderdale Fashion Week, I wanted to bring people together to mingle with the models and designers before the big event.

Lamburginni Champagne keept our glasses filled while we learned about some exciting things coming our way at this year's Fort lauderdale Fashion Week, including the hot off the press Spring Edition of Fort Lauderdale Fashion Week Magazine....where yours truly has a spot inside!
The beautiful flower photo backdrop by Miami Flower Queen was a hit and had everyone up snapping photos! Lis Castella, Fort lauderdale Fashion Week's Lead Designer, was in attendance, along with Diego Dominguez.

HAPPY NEW YEAR! As we welcome all the great things that will come to us in 2019, I want to take the time to look back at 2018. I launched Girl's Night Out in Fort Lauderdale in May 2018 not knowing what to expect. From a small, cozy gathering at the first event (with no photographer and only one business) I have watched this community embrace this unique networking event in such an extraordinary way. Now I am proud to say that each month the event gets better. With an average attendance of 150 local ladies, no event is the same yet all events provide the same feeling...a feeling of support and connection among women from all ages, backgrounds and professions! Enjoy this photo review of the 2018 events and mark your calendar for the 2019 dates!!!
