BFF TweetUp 2

Hey Diva’s

It’s official! BFF Tweetup 2.0 is in the books! And let me tell you even though this was “the second time around” for this glamtastic get-together, it was definitely “a night to remember!” (a little sumthin for all my fellow Shalamar fans out there). 😀

So, the stage was set for another sassy soiree with some of Atlanta’s hautest BFF’s. In case you are wondering just who the BFF’s are, well, the BFF’s (Blog Fab Fashionista’s), are a group of fabulous bloggers that I bring together every so often to network with one another as well as to connect them with local business to help spread the word through social media about these businesses and their services. Being that this was my second adventure into the realm of “meet & tweet’s” I wanted to do something a little different this go ‘round. During my  first BFF Tweetup in February, me and several fab ladies met at Shula’s 347 Grill in Buckhead where Shula’s Business Development Manager, Veronica Young, setup this amazing gathering that was the hautest happy hour this side of Honolulu. 😉 I was so inspired by that experience that I wanted the next Tweetup to feel like an exotic getaway. So, this time around we converged at Polished Nail & Beauty Lounge in Smyrna for an evening of pampering, a few giveaways, delicious drinks, and yummy treats, all among some of the most fab ladies in town.

Hey ladies!

Hey ladies!

Selam Welde, owner of Polished Nail & Beauty Lounge, rolled out the pink carpet for the ladies, providing us with tasty strawberry sangrias, a fabulous fruit tray, snack tray, and complimentary manicures and pedicures. We were literally spoiling ourselves rotten while enjoying the plush and relaxing ambiance of Polished. I mean, what diva couldn’t use a pamper party, right?

And speaking of being “spoiled”, Cha’Kiva Felder of Spoiled Diva was also there to showcase her lovely clutch bags and accessories. Kiwi the Beauty of Popularity Sweets provided these amazing OPI nail polish inspired cakepops that were all the rave! The fab ladies each received a goodie bag with Bath & Body Works lotion, nail polish, and Saniyyah “Sunny” Griffin of Carol’s Daughter at Lenox Square provided a few samples of their Monoi© line of hair repairing conditioners for the goodie bags.

Now what is a get together among divas without a few freebies? Spoiled Diva provide a lovely pair of custom hoop earrings and a signature t-shirt for one of the giveaways, Polished also provided two gift certificates for a free manicure, while I threw in a gift-pack of Curls Unleashed – Organic Root Stimulator products.

Shalawn “The Beauty Architect” Willis of LAMIK cosmetics was also there. Yall remember Shalawn, right? She was the fabulous makeup artist who glammed me up for my video shoot. Shalawn talked to the ladies about the latest Spring trends in makeup and she also worked her magic behind the brush by pampering the ladies with eye and makeup applications.

    […] Have you ever heard of a Tweet Up event?  I was introduced to this cool way of sharing the happenings & networking by Oh! Nikka.  I attended (was shooting) her bloggers event a few months ago and was totally new to “tweeting”.  Ladies tweeted throughout the night as they mingled, pampered and sipped.  You can check out some of my pics from that event here: Tweet Up at Polished BeautyLounge […]
