Brunch! Tea! Women Empowerment!
These and many other factors made up the extravagant Ladies Who Brunch ATL: Royal Tea Seminar. This was only my second time attending an #LWBATL event but I can truly say I’m hooked. What makes this event so unique is the fact that it’s not your typical networking event. What’s better than putting on your best attire, attending a brunch, and getting advice from successful women all in one setting? It’s the perfect combination!
The brunch, hosted by creators Dayira “Dayybella” Jones and Bianca Rush, featured a diverse panel. Kandi Burress and Cynthia Bailey were among the panelist and each agreed that being apart of The Real Housewives of Atlanta gave them an outlet to promote their own business ventures. Necole Bitchie, who is well-known for her blog Necolebitchie.com, discussed how she created the blog to get the attention of a very reputable record label and it turned into something much bigger. Emily B. shared how social media aided in the signing of a five-year contract with ZigiNY designing her own shoe collection. Last but certainly not least, celebrity makeup artist Latasha Wright, opened up about how strong relationships with her clients played a role in how she treated her employees.
The one thing in common with these ladies, including the creators of #LWBATL, is that they used what they had to get to where they are now. Every woman seated in the illustrious Biltmore ballroom absorbed and appreciated every word spoken to them. From the Rasberry Red Velvet Tea to the adorable #LWBATL goodie bags, this event made my list of favorites and should be on every woman’s to-do list this summer.
