Holiday Scene

18 11 2009

I just made it to the audition for this print ad 5 minutes before it was closed and thankfully I was determined enough to make it in spite of the days events. I met with Jess and Lindsey who you could tell both had artistic minds (I like that). Although our meeting was brief it was enough for them to decide to make me a part of the holiday online ad campaign. I am displaying a beautiful pair of star shaped mother of pearl earrings. Thank you to photographer Paul Bernhardt, Jess, Lindsey, and the entire staff of the Wedge/ Wedge-Worldwide.

photo2_lisa-hartwellWhile working at the “State of Mind Music” office, I was wisked away to attend a taping of The Real Housewives Of Atlanta: Season 2 where Mrs. Lisa Hartwell (not the designer, but the brain child behind the brand) hosted a fashion show (where there were “Fashons” honey!) and after party sponsored by Closet Freak & her domestic violence foundation and a new drink Rhythm (which tastes like Kook-Aid). The event was great…..and the gift bags were even better and my girl Lisa was so fly (as always)!

I’d like to thank Jerrell Allen for the VIP access and Lisa & Edgerton Hartwell for being such a gracious hosts (that’s him in the background drinking the bottled water...it was soo hot). I’m glad I was able to attend shot out to Devo Dwight, Micheal Knight, J-Holiday, Que Parker, Ms. A.J. Johnson (hope you found something good to eat girl), NeNe & Gregory Leakes (he is a real stand up dude), and the FAM: $tacks & Dent, … Oh & I don’t want to forget Polow Da Don (it’s been a minute good to see you homie), Teyanna Taylor, Jazze Pha, & Tony Rock (who I ran into at another party). Overall….. the night was a lot of fun….. but most of all productive and that’s what it’s really all about (for me at least). I hope you all enjoy your weekend, have fun & drink responsibly.

Love Ya,

Aja
