Jody Watley. Beauty Social Event

Dre Brown, Jody Watley, Afrobella
I attended beauty blogger's event "Beauty Social" as the guest of Afrobella, Dre Brown and Mr. Billy B  today in Santa Monica, California. today
Listening to the "Brown Girl's Beauty" panel was empowering and fun. My friend, Mr. Billy B. brought a refreshing down to earth Q&A with his distinct honesty and humor. I first worked with Billy B. for 'The Makeover" (beauty as well as those faux plastic surgery pics) and the video for "A Beautiful Life," where we played around with a multitude of looks.
It was so nice to meet Patrice Yursik of Afrobella at Billy's cocktail reception last night. I spotted her walking in as I talked in the entryway of Billy's garden with Belinda Carlise's adorable son Duke. I exclaimed "Afrobella, my Facebook and Twitter friend!",  before she had a chance to look up to see me.
Dre Brown blogger for Beautylish was incredibly warm and enthusiastic, I felt like she was an instant sister girlfriend. I felt very welcome and appreciated. For some reason the past couple of days reminded me of the Dr. Seuss classic tale "Oh, The Places You'll Go", a favorite of mine.

I bet that was an informative and fun day/evening. Did they have make-up inspired finger food and such for the event as well?-QH

Q, lol - no they didn't. It was informative. I was also curious about tips for men to share. Un_Taco - it is one of my favorite books. I used to read it to my daughter and son. It would always choke me up too for some reason, lol. Probably as a Mom thinking of them growing up and going off into life. Thanks guys!!
