Had a great time both times I traveled to New York! My first visit I was fortunate to travel with my cousin and see all of the sights! I met a lot of cool people including the vps at Ciroc and Hennesy (my dad's favorite drink).
When I returned to New York a few weeks later, I stayed at the new "One Boutique" hotel at Spacastle. The kind and wonderful staff made my stay super awesome! It's only been open for a week and it definitely has that "new hotel" feel. But it also has a unique twist, with modern rooms including oversized bathtubs, a hotel bar, cool lobby and sleek hotel room. It's located in Flushing, NY where your surrounded by a lot of culture. With dozens of Chinese & Korean restaurants and shops.
I was excited to visit my old colleagues from Charleston,SC- Dallas, TX- Atlanta,GA and we tried to have a good time at the 40/40 club. I also had a chance to go to the Red Rooster in Harlem, it was an awesome restaurant upstairs with good food and a club with a deejay downstairs. Did I mention DENZEL WASHINGTON was there!!!
Overall it was a Great trip, can't wait to go back!

I was able to buy two great lipgloss colors from Stacy C. Uzah (founder and organizer of event) and creator of the line of lipglosses called "Stace Face"
I also met and bought wine from an African-American female alcohol distributor of her own wine line "Sociologic."
I purchased Natural hair products and Elle Vie butter creme!
Great to support financially other women pursuing their dreams!
