SOOOOO Najee Wilson from Tresfraisnajee, and I did a ton of stuff on Fashions Night Out. I totally posted pics of our trek across Manhattan on Tumblr., so you can check those out there and on Najee’s blog. Anyway, one of our last FNO stops was at the Opening Ceremony store at The Ace Hotel. OC had a street carnival where I won a cute plaid bowtie and Najee and I starred in a little video. That’s right! That is us in the video towards the beginning and the end, and it was a complete blast. The confetti I threw got stuck on my face and in Najee’s hair. This may be TMI, but after I took my bra off that night, I totally made it rain confetti in my hotel room. I think that qualifies as a good ass night!

I would like to thank Teowanna, Kaela, and Mikelle from Carolina Blogging for throwing an amazing get together! They brought together some of South Carolina’s most popular bloggers for a luncheon at the Blue Marlins’ Vista Room. Thanks Brian Dukes for the lovely food. Heather Solos from Home-EC 101 and Kiesha Easley from We Blog Better spoke to us abut blogging. I can’t wait for Heather Solos book to come out. I think I want to turn my blog into a book one day, and I have already started implementing some of Kiesha’s blogging tips. I can’t wait for the results. Fire Fly Vodka, Cheetah’s Gourmet Chocolates, and SC Exotic Creations provided us with delightful goodies. My friend Najee’s outfit was a convo starter. He even got featured on fellow luncheon guest Lord Maxwell’s blog. It was great!
