Hello Everyone! I know it’s been a hot minute, but I hope you are well!
I attended the grand opening of William B + Friends at Westfield Century City and I entered a styling contest at their store where I had to create a head to toe look. I scoured the entire store which has a lot of fun, chic, affordable clothing for women and I created this colorful ensemble which was exciting to put together!
William B + Friends fall look I created. Please like this exact photo on their Facebook fan page!
If my photo gets the most likes on Facebook I will win an iPad. Please go to their FB page and like the photo as I would love to win this as an early Xmas gift! What I also like about this look is that it can be worn for your 9 to 5 and then for a night out take off the blazer and you have a fab lace top you can rock the night away in!
I put a lot of thought into the outfit and for some reason I feel patriotic in it…
Thank you in advance!!

Excited to be back again to share more tips with you on planning a successful event! Since I have launched this series, I’ve witnessed things at events where I could definitely share some of the tips I have mentioned thus far, and I’m glad that my readers are enjoying what I have to say! So, what tips do I have for G-I?
My goody bag from the Night of Beauty event – It was definitely a GREAT bag filled with good things!
- Goody Bags: Goody bags are a great bonus to any event and something that many attendees look forward to. One thing you should make sure of is that there are GOOD or even GREAT things in that bag, especially if I’m paying to be at your event. Putting some coupons, brochures, or flyers in a bag IS NOT a goody bag, it’s an informational kit. Product samples, promotional products, complimentary passes, food and even drinks makes a fab goody bag.
All Hands on Deck – everybody helps out!
- Hands on Deck: When producing large events, everybody in the office should help with something. Whether you’re running the show or not, we all have to get our hands dirty sometimes and do some schlepping. Nobody should fell like they are “too above this” to not assist. One thing I pride myself on is helping out with anything from cleaning tables to moving boxes. Heard of the term “All hands on deck?” That means yours too.
Winning an iPad is always a crowd pleaser!
- Incentives: There are different goals and benchmarks to achieve when planning an event, and sometimes incentivizing the task allows for quicker completion and more excitement! If there is a tedious task, the pot is always sweeter when there is an offer mixed in such as a half day off, free lunch, or gift card. However you want to incentivize it, be my guest! Also, attendees love raffles, door prizes and anything they can win!
Enjoy the tips for this week and feel free to share your own tips!
