Fab Body Factory's Nails and Dumbbells Event

On Monday, June 11th, dozens of women in the DMV met at the Fab Body Factory in Upper Marlboro, MD for mixing, mingling, manicures, and massages! This was really a fun event! Gift bags were raffled off (I actually won one of these bags, complete with nail polish, workout gear, and lots of gift cards!) and one lucky lady won an amazing pair of Nike sneakers. If you haven't already checked out Deanna Jefferson and her fitness and lifestyle company, the Fab Body Factory, please do so! Check out the pics below (and please excuse the picture quality!):

 Celebrity jewelry designer Deborah Mdurvwa was there, selling lots of latest line. She's worked with celebrities like Lil' Mo, Maya, and Tracy DiMarco, just to name a few! Check out her designs below, visit her website and be sure to follow her: @Mdurvwa

These were dubbed the "Pink Friday" editions by Deborah's customers! They were in my gift bag and I can't wait to wear them.

 There was also a meditation session where everyone sat still for about 10 minutes and meditated on life and body image. It was extremely relaxing.

"Let No Love Fall Victim to Circumstance"

I recently watched a breathtaking movie called "Circumstance" - thanks to Netflix! I have been wanting to watch "Circumstance" for a while and finally got the chance to do so last week. The movie is about two Iranian women existing in a stringent cultural reality that doesn't fully permit them to be themselves (I think we can all relate to this dilemma at some point in our lives). The story beautifully unfolds at the perfect pace, allowing the viewer to catch every glare, every touch, every glance, and every intricacy. The two young women fall deeply in love, but must go out of their way to repress their feelings amidst other looming family and societal issues. Go and get this movie, watch it and let me know how you like it!

How amazing is this photo?? I love the masculine look on women!
