Unlike most pampering events that are targeted at celebrities, this event was created to pamper public relations, social media, and marketing professionals. These industry heavy hitters had the opportunity to get their makeup done by the staff at Nakeah’s Cosmetics & Beauty Lounge, and experience a number of pampering services such as massages, spray tans, hair services, and enjoy a shopping experience with items such as jewelry and other beauty products.
The cocktails we were flowing special thanks to Chambord’s Derrell Spann.
This event was produced by Women In PR Marketing Director Kayla Scott and The D Network Director Dana Fikes. Vendors and sponsors for this event included Chambord, Jones & Rose, Pretzel Crisps, Love Sweets, Ladies Touch Catering, Couture Bling Collection, YEROC by Corey Woods, Wild Beauty, F.A.M.E., The D Network, The Luxe PR Group, The Jessica Rich Collection, Eternity Tanning, Danielle’s Lovely Touches, ScentSational Soaps.

While shopping and enjoying the pampering services, professionals were able to mingle amongst each other and network while being entertained by DJ Punch. Special guest who attended this event include reality TV drama queen Natalie Nunn, Actor Darris Love, and celebrity image consultant and designer Jean Francois Bro Grebe who came to support the organization.
