October is the month of awareness: get educated

Hey Loves,
October is often significant of changes as the leaves turn into beautiful colors and then color the lawn. Women slip into a different mode if dress as they embrace cooler temperatures. October however, is also a month of awareness: yes this one month is shared by Breast a Cancer awareness and Domestic Violence awareness as well as Mental Illness awareness week. oh yeah and these are all important as they all impact each other based on the psychosocial stressors which are likely to be experienced with occurrences. Get educated on what we can do to fight breast cancer, end domestic violence abuse, diagnose and treat mental illness

Rip The Runway for The Cure

Hey Peeps,
Happy Sunday, last night i was at the Museum Bar….Rip the Runway for the Cure, a breast cancer fund raiser and fashion show. Another event by the beautiful Ms. Dominica hosted by Erica with Dondria performing live, proceeds to be donated to the Susan G. Komen Fund and the Atlanta Breast Cancer Survivor’s Network. Nice ambiance, contemporary black and white decor quite cozy and relaxing. The Fashion fundraiser was hosted by Erica who lost her Mom to breast cancer in 2011, patrons were able to enjoy cocktail hour, dinner, appetizers and drinks while enjoying the fashion show. Each female attendee was given a breast cancer awareness goodie bag and everyone had the opportunity to participate in a raffle. Thanks to Ms. Dominicana for a wonderful event/fundraiser.
