Tamika’s New York state of Mind #PassionateSpot

I had the pleasure of enjoying a nice long business trip to New York City during the ever so popular New York Fashion Week. It is the premiere fashion week in the country and I definitely went in with a intrigued mind. Fashion shows, models, bloggers, magazines, editors, designers, stylists, and so much was going on in the city.

I hosted a Books and Brunch which will become a city to city event during this year’s fashion week. Many of the country’s elite bloggers were in attendance. The topic was to discuss women entrepreneurs. We also ran a contest to bring in aspiring bloggers who were able to feed off of our business savvy minds. The event was sponsored by Cover Girl Queen collection and LiftLabSkin Care. Look out for more Books and Brunch events to come.

I second attended the Harlem Row Fashion show with attendees from VH1, TvOne, Debra Lee of BET, actors, musicians, and so much more. I got some back stage action too.

All in all I had a great business trip. I took some time to entertain myself and squeeze in some fun times. I met people on the street and gave away books, had social lunches and dinners, and man I tell ya this trip made me look at Atlanta like catch up already lol. The life of the city is all that in a bag of Doritos. Can’t wait to get back to the city. But until next time back writing for me. New series called Trust No Niggas is under works.
