NCBW 100: Women in Leadership Breakfast 2012

Greetings my lovely ASW readers!! I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter Weekend! It is always great to get together with family and friends to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ. I actually attended a different church yesterday because one of my friend’s baby was being dedicated and I pride myself on being there for as much as I can when it comes to the people who I am close to. I enjoyed the service and I wouldn’t mind visiting Logos Baptist Church in the near future.

Anywho, this past Saturday morning myself and a few other lovely ladies attended the National Coalition of 100 Black Women’s Leadership Breakfast at Jungle Island in Miami, Florida. There were six panelists who provided us with great knowledge on how to be successful with anything and everything that you plan to do. They encouraged us to look at where we are right now and plan that next step in our lives. I am twenty-five years old and I feel as though I need to use my 20’s as my grind period because in a couple of years I plan to get married and start a family. I will use this time to plan my life and keep my priorities in check. My biggest fear is that I will look back 5 years from now and wish I would have done this and that differently. I am glad that I was able to attend this breakfast because it has altered my outlook on life.

Panelists (L to R): Katy Soreson,Nikki Lewis Simon,Esq.,Violette Sproul,Laurinda Andujar,Annette Taddeo Goldstein, and Donna L. Ginn

I picked up this dress at Kohls during their Easter sale. I loved the fit of it and I knew I would be able to wear this dress again during the Spring and Summer season. The middle of the dress was a little big so I added a skinny belt to give it a better fit. I find myself shopping at Kohls almost every weekend and mainly because I find a 20% off coupon to their store each week which is always a plus. Especially considering the fact that 90% of their merchandise is consistently on sale. They have the cutest Spring dresses right now so I suggest that you head on over and check them out.
