5 Lessons I Learned This Week (Feb 25th)


1. I NEED A TRIBE

This past week I started looking at small spaces to make a transition from the Charlotte area to the

Saturday Style: Tweed and Navy

February, has started off as a great month. A few unsolved mysteries, but for the most part there is direction and clarity and direction for the remaining months of 2018. I have set some small goes and I met each of them. Meeting these goals, if nothing else, gives me the fortitude to push just a bit harder to go a little further. For the most part, I am really trying to find my way BAC to doing many of the things I loved to do and many of the things that bring in a consistent source of income. Believe it or not, in order the thrift and throw fabulous parties, you need money. For many years I failed to ensure I had my basis covered, but now I can honestly say I am okay with doing whats necessary and using my spare time to live out many of my passion projects.

5 Thoughts from this week (Feb 4th)

10 Lessons from this week (Jan 28th)


So I went to one of my favorite southern restaurants on Sunday to eat. I hadnt been there in maybe a month so I was really excited about indulging in some Macaroni and Cheese and Fried Chicken. The food is really good. I have been going there for many years. After eating my lunch (overeating really), I decided to do some shopping for a few items for the business (www.RashonCarraway.com). About 10 minutes after I left the restaurant,

LUSH BIRTHDAY BRUNCH

My dear friend turned 35 this past December and for six months he has been dropping all types of hints about what he wanted his brunch to look like. As an event designer and a specialist in dinner parties I listened him, but gave no clues as to what I was going to do for him. His main request was lots of colorful flowers. Well, it is safe to say that is exactly what he received.

Take a look at how I created a LUSH BIRTHDAY BRUNCH for him.

DINE

I havent hosted an actual ticketed dinner event in quite some time, but I am always creating exclusive and luxury dinner parties for clients and friends. This past weekend I was in Baltimore Maryland, working to help transform a clients open concept living area in the perfect backdrop for the launch of several of his new culinary ventures.

I apologize in advance that these are only iPhone photos and videos, but I wanted to make sure I captured as much as I could to share with you all.

Saturday Spaces: "unboring beige"

Once again, I have found my self in the far reaches of my PINTEREST ACCOUNT and have come across another amazing apartment that I think it so well decorated.

Take a look at this fantastic space that I know many of you will absolutely love. 

Saturday Spaces: The Perfect Gray

Even though Pinterest is not as fun as it used to be, I still find myself logging on and finding some amazing spaces, products and suiting ideas that I keep stored away in my private folders. When I come across something really amazing, I make sure I bookmark it and share it with all of you. 

Everyone know my love for Black and White and of course my favorite neutral color, gray. When I stumbled upon the above photo, I keep clicking until I found the original source because it was just that good! Unfortunately, they led to a Chinese website of which I could not understand, but pictures dont lie. So take a look at this home, I am calling "The Perfect Gray".
