Recap of our Create Dreams at hip Innovation Boutique, Featuring Photography by Sidni Monee Focus and Snap Photography and our Locals We love!
We celebrated our September Networking Mixer on September 10th at HIP Innovation Boutique in Newport News. All who attended had so much fun meeting our lovely vendors who were very informative on their brands and we enticed our guest with Swag Bags loaded with items and deals from local Port Warwick Companies and Travel deals from Alluring Dream Travels . We also got to enjoy some amazing food from our Food Truck, El Coqui.
Like many of our events locations HIP Studio was perfect place to have an event like ours, especially with all the connections we made. for this event and made lots of connections! I know a lot of you wanted to come, but for whatever reason a lot of you could not make it.
I wanted to share the links to our fabulous vendors, that way you can still shop from them if you're looking for last minute gifts for any occasion or more information on them. Take advantage of the many specials they are offering. Don't forget to tell them you saw them featured with Hampton Roads Housewives In The City.

Mix a little traditional and Non traditional ways to get Prepared for a Major storm in Hampton Roads!
This post was written by Shannon H. A local Hampton Roads resident since 2003 . She is a stay at home mom and navy wife. As a mother she knows how hard it is to be a parent .She is a super grandma and has adopted her grandson. This is not a sponsored post. All opinions are her own.
We live in a unique area. Summer always has the threat of hurricanes and winter the threat of the snow storms. And we all know we're supposed to have our “kits" ready. Canned goods, water, batteries, flashlights...you know the list.
As a stay at home mom, I try to always be prepared with the list. With each season having its own unique items but always the basics. Last winter, for example, I hit the clearance after Christmas and had a small stockpile of things to be played with on those “snow days".
With Florence swirling around out there and the threat of it hitting the East Coast, the thoughts of Isabel come right back! The weeks without power. The days and days of nothing to do. So, what are some things outside of your normal “kit" do you like your keep around?
I know I just went and picked up some of the things that should be on hand but aren't always. And once again I hit up the clearance section at my local Walmart. A new board game, some water balloons, a puzzle.
Time to Be Ready and Get prepared!
Gather Information- This is your first source to see where the possible disaster might strike your area. Check your local news stations, online resources like and the radio for information. Understand the area in where you live which will make the difference in if you need to evacuate or you can ride out the storm. Keep in mind it is never recommended you stay in your home if you can help it, you should try and evacuate if you can.
Plan ahead for all types of emergencies- No matter the force of nature you must always be ready. You will need to set up an emergency plan with your family. Designate the areas where you might evacuate and set a route away from disaster.
Make a to go bag for emergency supplies for each member of your family! You will need to have supplies on hand like water, can goods, first aid kits, extra clothes, candles, flashlights, etc…. in order to get through the storm at home or for your evacuation.
Prepare your home or apartment- You will need to secure your home with the necessary items to protect it while you’re in it or if you need to evacuate. You might need to board up windows, bring in lawn furniture and secure other outdoor items so they won’t become a flying weapon to another person’s home.
