BlackLove

By invitation only well not really if you’re familiar with local events you could’ve signed up to attend this evening event Black Love. My friend Kara Norman invited me to a night out to one of her favorite shows on TV for an open discussion into challenges that come up in a marriage. We enjoyed an evening of what would be considered a live broadcast of the show with special celebrity guest Grant Hill and Tamia. It was an evening of conversation dealing with marriages from different perspectives and couples from all ranges from newlyweds two couples with plenty of skin in the game dealing with the real issues in overcoming to stay together. During our outing we had lots of fun at the photo booth provided by Far Out Galaxy! They also gave us lots of fun gifts from and Kara and I got a chance to grab a quick picture with the celebrity panelist!!! An exciting night I was all smiles and enjoyed every minute of my time.Kara+and+ElishaBlack Love copy5-1-18+DD+Atlanta+Woodruff+Arts+Center+-+Black+Love+-+Robot+Booth20180501238Black Love1 copyGrant+Hill+&+Tamia+Black+Love+Event

Cardi B thanks for Inspiring me!

We recently hosted our Portfolio & Perspectives Style Shoot Workshop in Atlanta, Georgia

As we were busy styling up our main table for seating we were inspired… So here goes my story of Inspiration!

So those who are not familiar with the rap star Cardi B she has been headling blogs, news outlets and she was made super popular  by her authentic style on Instagram. This young female rapper just recently dropped her debut album and when I saw the cover art I was so inspired.cardi-b-invasion-of-privacy

Our Inspiration after a quick screenshot of someone else’s creative artwork featuring the album cover design art IMG_4352 copy

I absolutely love loud colors they scream happiness to me. So with the inspiration of the album art cover, I was inspired to design my recent tablescape for our Portfolios & Perspectives Event Design Workshop around the inspiration of the album cover. Searched my mind and took an immediate inventory of items already owned that I can pull this look together. Just a few basics and we got what we envision the color palette that screams fun!Official Cardi B inspired for blog_ copy
