One of my favourite bloggers (which seems like an unfair title because she's gone on to do so much more) is hitting our fair city this weekend.
None other than the fab Afrobella herself (gubmint name: Patrice Yursik) will be in Toronto on Saturday, September 17th for two (count 'em, TWO!) special events:
Event #1: Brunch & Beauty With Afrobella Date: September 17th, 2011 Place: The Trane Studio – 964 Bathurst Street Toronto, ON M5R 3G5 Time: 11:30am – 3:00pm Pricing: Early Bird tickets: $20 (Until August 15th) Advanced Tickets: $25 Door: $30 - Enjoy a networking event, Q&A, interview, giveaways and brunch!
Event #2: Dinner Delights With Afrobella Date: September 17th, 2011 Place: The Trane Studio – 964 Bathurst Street Toronto, ON M5R 3G5 Time: 7:00pm – 11 pm Pricing: Early Bird Tickets: $30 (Until August 15th) Advanced Tickets: $35 Door: $40 - Enjoy a networking event, Q&A, interview, giveaways, dinner and after party with DJ Sean Sax!
I've been following Afrobella's site for at least 2 years now, and she's an amazingly positive, intelligent, and empowering woman. If you're looking for everything from personal motivation to the scoop on the latest beauty products, you need to find your way to her site - you can thank me later.
I'm glad this event will be held at the Trane Studio. It's always a good look to support our local Black-owned businesses - click here for a quick article from Sway on Frank Francis, the owner of the Trane Studio.
Anyways, I need to get my fly outfit, cute hairstyle, business cards and pen and notepad together, because I know I'll be learning a TON while networking with Afrobella and other lovely Toronto folks. I've already hit up Soulafrodisiac for my tickets - click here to get yours while they're still available!
See you on the 17th!
