This month our Girl's Night Out was hosted at The Wine Loft, one of my personal favorite spots in Short Pump. So many fabulous ladies came and spent the evening learning about our featured businesses and of course, taking pictures in a fun photo booth provided by Hott Shotz Photo Booth.
Our RVA Housewives in The City community is so special in how we encourage and support one another month after month. Please continue spreading that love by liking, following, and visiting our amazing businesses.
Created by two local moms with a love for jewelry, Keva Style offers beautiful, handcrafted leather jewelry. Their jewelry can be dressed down or up and you can be sure that you will stand out when wearing one of their pieces. Every guest that stopped by their table gushed about their earrings, cuffs, and necklaces.

Ten years ago I am betting that you never thought you would be worried about Instagram algorithms or that you would obsess over getting that perfect picture of your letter board next to a cup of coffee. But here we are and we all know that running a business on social media is HARD and the competition is fierce. With all of that being said, I was thrilled to find out that Content and Connection was coming to Richmond. I went to the first meet up and I am happy to say it lived up to the hype!
What is Content and Connection?
A community of like-minded entrepreneurs there to help you create social media content through an online group, monthly meetups, expert training, and tips throughout the month.
What did we do at the monthly meet up?
We met up at the super cute Quirk Hotel and had time to network ( my personal favorite, I'm a talker). Then we split into groups and set out across the city to take pictures with some beautiful backdrops. When you get people with different skill sets and businesses together, magic happens and everyone ends up inspired.
You all know that I love having a community and I am thrilled that we have this new one here in Richmond. To learn more about how you can join, head to Content and Connection!
