Girl Power Hour is an event you hear me talk about often, this past Thursday was the latest event and it was one to remember!~ Co-Creators Samantha Lawton & Darnell Sue have really created a phenomenal thing, much more than just an event. It has grown from just a few ladies getting together to a few hundred lady business owners coming together to learn from each other to team up with one another to break the boundries of business – not a small feat!
On Thursday 4.16.09 there was a big announcement – Samantha Lawton has re-connected with her high school sweetheart and will be moving to Madagascar to explore the world and get married! The whole story was …. well, it covered all the emotions!! It was happy (she got engaged!) hilarious (thanks to her meddling dental hygenist mid-western mother!) tearful (she will be leaving us) and exciting (she is getting everything she wants in life and we are more than happy for her!) so overall a very entertaining story – which leads us to the best part, she will be creating a blog – The-adventures-in-Sam (.blogspot.com) and if she writes anything like she talks we’ll all be at the edge of our seats waiting for more!!
Okay… now down to the fun stuff – the photos! Here are a few images from the evening:
The sponsors were fabulous as always – Propel, Pearl Vodka & Revelry Wine (delicious!)
Here is Darnell & Sam in front of Alchemy Collections – a GREAT space for events!! (not to mention great furniture for sale!)
The swag bags were filled with great items! Including a swanky CD of music by DJ Leslie!!
One of the great presenters of GPH was Jill Kelto – the Recessionista! She saw this recession coming, started planning early & has TONS of great advice for you & your family! Read about it in her book “Don’t Get Caught With Your Skirt Down” and also in her blog, see HERE
A new friend and great reporter Marina Rockinger from KOMO 1000 decided to come join the festivities and word on the street is she will be airing and interview with Sam & Darnell this week! So tune in!
Eyebrow consults & Mini-Massages were given by a new spa in town Radiant Med Spa
Two of the cutest bartenders!
There were creepy guys pressed against the windows all night – HILARIOUS! I LOVE the city!
I thought this was a great idea!! Bring something from your closet or jewelry box that you bought, thought you’d love and didn’t end up using or wearing – put it on display for everyone to see and then of course go home with a little something new!
The door prizes were fabulous as always – tickets to the D-List Party (won by Amanda Howse) and tickets to the Crooked Trails Venetian Masquarade Ball (won by ME!!)
