Happy Monday! I wanted to start the week off with sharing the lineup of Featured Businesses we have for February's Girls Night Out event coming up next week! Housewives in the City Greenville, NC was launched just a few months ago and I'm so very impressed with how ready the ladies of Greenville were ready for us! Each event is growing, and more and more women are coming to events excited to learn what Housewives in the City is all about. Everyone is all about networking and I LOVE it! Which makes me that much more excited about Girls Night Out at The Blackened Kraken Bar & Grill next Thursday! We're all expecting a successful event, The Blackened Kraken is in the heart of the uptown district making it a great location for all of us to meet up. Our spotlight nonprofit this month is the Cancer Services of Eastern North Carolina - they're partnering up with the Carolina Breast Imaging Specialists for the 1st Quarter Breast Cancer Screening Day the same Thursday of Girls Night Out (Feb. 28 from 3pm-7pm at the Carolina Breast Imaging Specialists.) Check below for more information as well as our Featured Businesses, links are attached if you'd like to get ahold of any of them before Girls Night Out See you next week!
January's Girls Night Out was only our SECOND event for Housewives in the City Greenville, NC, but we had some of the best ladies come out. Thank you to all the wonderful women that came out ready to get their networking on! And thank you to our great venue, Tiebreakers Sports Bar and Grill! Tiebreakers set us up with great accommodations; our own servers, 10% off food items, AND a special for crafts beers (including local brews.) Of course the evening wouldn't have been a success without our vendors and their giveaways for the raffles. I loved everyone's enthusiasm, all of our ladies were ready to meet and mingle, shop and enjoy a great evening together!
Although we did not have a nonprofit featured before Girls Night Out, I did meet one lovely lady who shared an event with me that every woman in Eastern NC should know about! The Cancer Services of Eastern North Carolina is partnering with the Carolina Breast Imaging Specialists for their 1st Quarter Breast Screening Day. The event will take place Thursday, Feb. 28 between 3-7pm at Carolina Breast Imaging Specialists. You MUST pre-register to attend via phone, email, or online registration!

I feel like in 2019, everyone (at least all women) know or have an idea what Scentsy is, but something I have never done was read up on the company. Scentsy's mission is "To bring value to the world by providing an industry-leading, family-friendly business opportunity selling creative, artistic, high-quality products that warm the heart, enliven the senses and inspire the soul." Scentsy definitely does all those things and I'm so glad Christy has been our Scentsy lady for both events here in Greenville! Not only is she a complete pro in the business, but she knows her stuff and keeps her family at the center of her world. Christy is my Scentsy lady for life! As her shirt at events says, keep calm, she's a Scentsy lady.

Rodan & Fields is one of the #1 skincare companies in the U.S., and let's face it, you don't become one of the best of best with products that don't work. January was Mandy's first event with us but we hope to have her back at more upcoming events, and Winter was the absolute perfect time for her to be joining us! She is a product of the brand and she loves to share her own story with Rodan & Fields. It's easy to see why she loves to do what she does. With the weather going back and forth between freezing temps and muggy, rainy days, I love to hear Mandy's recommendations for a new Rodan & Fields skincare routine. I'm also looking forward to the opportunity for her to do mini facials at our upcoming events!
