Hey ladies! Can you believe how quickly this year is flying by? It's already June 1st! I wanted to kick the month off by sharing what's to come for our Little Black Dress 2 Year Anniversary Party! For starters, we'll be at Annabelles of New Bern and will have the entire second floor all to ourselves. How exciting right?!
Welcome, Charmaine Teets Moberly with Young Living Essential Oils! She's always ready to answer all of your questions and show you how essential oils can change your life.
"In a world full of toxins we can't control everything we're exposed to however we CAN control what we allow in our homes. Everyday toxins fill our homes and affect all aspects of our physical and mental health. But you can create a completely nontoxic home with the power of truly pure essential oils which will allow your body to do the healing it needs. If you have trouble sleeping or focusing, lethargy, skin issues, unexplained symptoms, one illness after another, or something much more serious, let's talk. We can make 2019 your best and healthiest year yet. I would love to empower you to live a healthier, toxic-free life using Young Living essential oils."

Karen Valeri will be joining us with her Featured Business, Origami Owl!
From Karen: "Origami Owl is the brainchild of Bella Weems who knew she wanted a Jeep at 14. Her parents told her in this family we all work for what we want so she came up with the idea of designing lockets that tell a person’s story. So, how do I create a Living Locket? It’s as easy as five, simple steps. Let’s use this beautiful family as an example. Think about what represents each person. So, there are Charms to represent each child, Swarovski Crystals to add more sparkle; maybe her favorite colors, a Chain that's this mama's style, a custom-inscribed Plate to personalize the Locket. And, of course, Swarovski Crystal earrings to match. Easy, right?? Let me help you make one - it's so fun!"
Candice Nicole Styron will be joining us once again with Pure Romance and we are SO excited to see everything fun and new with Pure Romance! Check out Candice's website HERE!

Ladies, we had such an amazing time at our event last week at the Bern Bar! It's definitely one of our favorite spots to have our events (mostly because Adam, the owner, rocks!) Our vendors, charity, sponsors and awesome marines who came out to help serve our ladies made the night that much more fun! We had about 40 ladies come to show support to our local businesses and learn lots about the Journey of Hope Cancer Center! The Swag Bags from Belk were a huge hit and we look forward to working with them for future events! Pinecone Home and Garden Center even reached out and sponsored beautiful flowers for some giveaways! Please feel free to reach out to any of our vendors and sponsors!
Huge thank you to all of you who came out and congrats to all of our giveaway winners! Enjoy these great shots from our photographer, Nicole!

We started the year off by having Girls Night Out at City Stage New Bern, a local entertainment venue tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the rest of New Bern's Historical District. It was a great venue for all of us to spread out while we shopped, mingled, ate and enjoyed some live music! Our sponsor, Rankin & Fiume Orthodontics provided the best gym bag swag bags, stuffed with lots of ortho goodies, and our lovely vendors provided awesome giveaways for our raffle. Folks Journal, a local nonprofit publication here in New Bern, was our featured nonprofit for January and I'm so happy the ladies behind the journal were able to come out and enjoy the evening with us while sharing their magazine. All in all, January was a blast! Thank you to the ladies who came out in the rainy weather to have a good time!

The company is committed to providing "products for every family and every lifestyle." Charmaine is awesome, she completely embodies the values of the company through sharing the life-changing benefits essential oils have made in her life, explaining every product and where in your home to use them, and she even holds a monthly class via Facebook to teach others how to use essential oils in their own lives. It was so great to have her back!

Michele has been a vendor with us a handful of times over the last year with her and her family's business, 3GenFashion, and it wouldn't have been the same if she wasn't at this event with us! Michele, along with her mother and daughter, formed 3GenFashions to help women of different ages, sizes and styles find clothing to feel comfortable and beautiful in. Being a Piphany stylist, Michele is dedicated to sharing her love for the brand! I love taking a stroll to her clothing rack when she's at our event, 3GenFashions always has something perfect for everyone.

It has been a few months since we were able to spoil ourselves with $5 jewelry that we LOVE here in New Bern, which was why I was so excited to have Ashlee join us at Girls Night Out. Paparazzi keeps their styles trendy at a price that is available and affordable for everyone. Thank goodness we had the space for her to setup her whole display, because this girl came ready! From the front door of the venue you could see her big pink stands of jewelry in the back and had no choice but to go find a piece you love! I loved Ashlee's energy throughout the evening and her bright smile to all the ladies who came to attend.

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 second event with us along with Bethany and Charmaine, 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!

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 is our Scentsy lady at our events here in New Bern! 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!

Thanks for being the one to introduce us to this collection Candice!
