Oh How I ❤ My YPN Family!!

Have you ever felt so strong about something you can’t contain how you feel? Well when I say I love my YPN family I really mean it! The Northern Virginia Urban League Young Professionals Network has changed my life forever! Serving as the Director of Community Service for the last two years has taught me the true meaning of leadership, service, friendship and much more! My term comes to an end on June 30th of this year and I can honestly say I won’t know what to do with myself when that day comes!

This past weekend we had our annual Black Opal Fundraising Gala! We danced all night & it was well worth my poor little toes being sore for a day! Below is a great photo taken by CMediaUSA of the 2013-2014 Executive Board! We work hard and we play even harder! Want to know more about this awesome organization?

Being Cost Efficient!

This past weekend (Saturday, April 26th) I attended a fundraising Gala for the Northern Virginia Urban League Young Professionals Network. $80 for my ticket, $40 for my nails, $55 for my dress, and the list of expenses goes on. Since this was a huge event for me I wanted to get a cute hairstyle that would complete my look. So I decided to price a style I found while searching sisterlock updos. I sent a stylist the picture below. She said it would cost me $65. Now $65 doesn’t sound like much but for me it was a lot. Probably because I spent so much money already. So I told myself that I would re-create this style. I was determined to style my hair and replicate this style on my own. And I am proud to say that I did! I am quite happy with how it turned out! See for yourself! And let me know what you think!
