When asked about creating WOE Magazine, Ayo Thomas CEO/Editor in Chief state’s “God gave me a vision to launch women’s group entitled (Women of Excellence Fellowship). I created a small intimate environment for women to share their heart, receive tools and strategies to walk in wholeness and discover their purpose. WOE grew from my living room, to a friend’s basement, community centers, libraries and hotels in the course of 10 years. I had a desire to reach women in a larger capacity by providing empowerment tools and strategies to increase their quality of living. I believe when a woman discovers her true authentic self, she becomes empowered to change her circumstances, life and destiny. In 2015, I decided to pursue my lifelong dream of designing a magazine and here I am today launch WOE Magazine!”

Governor Hogan signs Drybar Bill – Founder Alli Webb

PacPal_Drybar2

W H O: Maryland Governor Larry Hogan, Senate President Thomas V. Mike Miller, Jr., Speaker of The House Michael B. Busch, State Senator Joan Carter Conway (District 43, Baltimore City), Maryland Delegate Dereck Davis (Prince George’s County, District 25), Maryland Delegate Ariana B. Kelly (District 16, Montgomery County), Drybar Founder Alli Webb, and Drybar fans throughout Maryland.

WHAT: The official Governor’s Signing of SB-830/HB-1291, aka, THE DRYBAR BLOWOUT LICENSE BILL, which “establishes a limited license to provide hair services – blowdrying: requiring the State Board of Cosmetologists to establish by regulation specified curriculum standards for providing hair services – blow drying for use by specified entities.” This bill was developed by Senator Conway and Delegate Ariana B. Kelly at the request of Drybar National Field Director Courtney Barfield. The bill is effective as of October 1, 2016 and is the first of its kind in the country. Governor Hogan, Senator Conway, Delegate Kelly, Drybar founder Alli Webb and Courtney Barfield will be in attendance for the signing ceremony.

WHEN AND WHERE: Tuesday, May 10, 10:00 am at The Governor’s Reception Room, Maryland State House, 100 State Circle, Annapolis, Maryland.

W H Y: Says Alli Webb, “On the heels of The Drybar Bill, which passed into law in Maryland in 2014 and allowed us to offer champagne and wine to our clients, we are honored to have worked with Senator and Delegate Kelly to pass SB830/HB1291, aka The Drybar Blowout License Bill, which will allow us to train and grow our team of Drybar stylists in Maryland, creating more jobs and opportunities in the process.”

ABOUT DRYBAR: Drybar is based on a simple philosophy: Focus on one thing and be the best at it. For Drybar, that’s blowouts. The idea was a natural one for curly-haired founder Alli Webb, a longtime professional stylist, who grew tired of overpaying for blowouts at traditional salons. Named one of the top “100 Brilliant Ideas” by Entrepreneur Magazine and one of New York Magazine’s Boom Brands, Drybar is on track to have over 70 retail locations by the end of 2016. The brand will continue adding to its popular line of hair styling products & tools sold both online and in its own shops, as well as at Sephora and Nordstrom in the U.S. and Canada, and select Ulta Beauty doors nationwide. “The Drybar Guide To Good Hair For All,” the first book by Alli Webb, will be published in October 2016 by Abrams Publishing.

Westfield Annapolis: Get the Look from Variety Studios Installation

To celebrate Awards Season this year, Westfield partnered with Variety to bring the hottest red carpet looks to local Westfield centers around the U.S.

Through this exclusive fashion partnership, top Westfield retailers including Nordstrom, Macys and Anthropologie curated celebrity looks from Hollywood so shoppers can also get the look of their favorite celebrities for less!

DSC_0157 DSC_0171 DSC_0165 Westfield Annapolis

I was invited (as a media outlet) to visit Westfield, Annapolis Mall and re-create one of the installation looks.  This was exciting because the campaign included a few of my favorite retailers.

DSC_0174DSC_0175

My individual style would be described as poised and polished.  I like tailored lines with a hint of femininity through ruffles, patterns, and fabric textures.  My style icons vary (depending on the mood) but are primarily Michelle Obama, Eva Longoria, with a hint of Kourtney Kardashian.

I started my shopping journey (for the campaign) at Nordstrom where I found a beautiful array of formal gowns.  The store did not disappoint fashionable customers by providing lace, sequins, and floral dresses.  In support of the campaign, I also discovered a Vince Camuto visual display showcasing a monochromatic shift dress, slacks, and tote bag.

After leaving Nordstrom, I walked over to Lord and Taylor.  If you’re searching for a Little Black Dress, they have it here!  The campaign celebrated Satires Ronan’s fashion style and her LBD through the installation display.

 I concluded my shopping adventure by visiting Macys women’s department.  From there, I was able to create a look that suits my personal style.

I purchased a Thalia Sodi Solid Scuba Blazer and Pencil Skirt.  This set looked amazing due to the jacket’s stand collar, open front, and leopard-print lining.  The skirt enhanced my body type along with subtle cut-outs at the hem-line.  I can’t wait to share my style photo on the site!
