On Saturday, I hosted “Love Songs & Curvy Conversations” at Lenox Coffee. It was my first event and it was sold out!!!
I put together a few pics for those of you who missed it (click on the images to make them bigger) and I’ll have video up soon. I want to thank my sponsors for being so supportive of TheBigGirlBlog and giving away great prizes. Thank you Match.com for giving away TWO memberships… I think the winners are going to have lots of fun with that 😉
SimplyBe is one of my favorite places to shop right now and they were kind enough to raffle TWO $100 giftcards to TBGB followers. I can’t wait to see what the winners choose, I know they’re going to look adorable!
We also got to hear from Tiffany from the Foxcroft collection (she’s wearing a foxcroft denim shirt that comes in plussize! You can see me wearing it here), Foxcroft gave away three shirts to facebook followers and attendees who spoke up and shared their stories.
The best part of the evening was meeting my Plus Size Princesses, I feel like I know you all from your comments/tweets/emails but being able to hug each of you and hear your stories meant a lot to me. (Special shout out to Nora who drove all the way from Connecticut! And to the Mom & sis from Saint Lucia who were visiting and hung out with us xoxo)
I could not have done this without Alex Lawrence, my pianist and best friend (I’ve known him since the 2nd grade!!) finding friends who will stand by you and support you 100% is rare these days, I love him so much– follow him on twitter @alexlawrens.
Speaking of supportive friends, I was glad that my friend Ms. Kathryn Finney was able to come too, she is so busy but she made time for me! I also had blogger buddies in the building, Alyssa from StylishCurves and Shaina from aThickGirlsCloset both came out and we all kinda matched in our color scheme… werk!
You can see more pics from #CurvyConvoNYC on my facebook page.
Lastly, I want to announce that my next event, “Cardio & Curvy Conversations” will be held at New York Sports Club on October 27th! Want to come workout with me? Register here!
