This past Saturday, August 17th, Yandy Smith of VH1’s “Love & Hip-Hop” and her popular Everything Girls Love (EGL) brand hosted their city wide two-part event, Girls Love Events “Atlanta” (GLEATL). Both events, which were held at Le Fais Do-Do, were successful. The morning event, Girls Love Girl Talk (GLGT), a panel discussion complete with a southern style brunch and mimosas, was sponsored by Sweet Bitch Wines. The empowering event included an emotional dialog led by Yandy Smith, featuring Dr. April Speed (“Real Housewives Of Atlanta”), Tashera Simmons (ex-wife of rapper DMX), Courtney Adeleye (founder of The Mane Choice Hair Solution) and EGL editors, Regina Tucker, Ayanna Stephens and Precious Avorkliyah. The topic of discussion, which was “The Balancing Act: Being Your Best Self in Every Area of Your Life” left the crowd in tears as well as inspired.
After a day of much needed girl talk, it was time for partying and pampering at Girls Love Nights Out (GLNO): “A Myx & Mingle Event” sponsored by Myx Fusions Moscato. Guests indulged in an evening of pampering, cocktails, hors d’oeuvres and much more. Amenities included massages, manicures, brow sculpting, eye lash and beauty bars. Fashion designer/boutique owner, Nikhol Hing captured the crowd’s attention with a riveting fashion show as models of various sizes displayed items from her online boutique, Klothh. Guests also had the chance to shop in the style suite which featured everything a girl could want from clothing to jewelry.
Celebrity attendees included, “Love & Hip-Hop Atlanta” stars, Rasheeda Frost, Mimi Faust and Nikko; We TV’s “LA Hair” star, Kim Kimble; VH1’s “Tough Love: Co-ed” star Judy Jae Nash; reality TV star Toya Wright; girl group French Kiss; actress Jackie Ward, R&B singer Tocarra Hamilton and Atlanta’s V103 radio personality Kendra G. The crowd went wild when an impromptu Beyoncé dance battle erupted between Kendra G. and Yandy. Check out the dance off here.
