Over the weekend, theJasmineBrand.com and VIBE Vixen held a “Reader’s Appreciation Brunch” at Washington, DC’s Georgia Brown’s. The purpose of the brunch was to honor and acknowledge the readers and faithful supporters of both sites. Attendees were selected by entering a Twitter contest, and those that specifically detailed what makes them boss chick were chosen to chat, ask question and network “What makes YOU a boss chick”? The Twitter winners of the contest were: @LauraLoveBeauty, @BarbaraChoice27, @BrittianyCierra, @Rai_Monique and @CarryRenee.
In addition to enjoying complimentary brunch and tailored Qream cocktails [Qream Peach mixed with Peach Ciroc & Qream Strawberry mixed with Godiva Liquor], VIBE Vixen’s editor, Niki McGloster, led a group discussion on all things pop and urban culture, like: Vibe’s recent controversial cover with Evelyn Lozada, Kandi Burruss, Tamar Braxton, Chrissy Lampkin; the internet buzz surrounding messy Hollywood break-ups (Usher & Tameka Raymond and Pilar & Deion Sanders); defining what it means to be a “Boss” chick; Meagan Good’s recent celibacy revelation and career advice! Contest winners also received a ‘Swag’ bag which included a pair of Puma sneakers, jewelry from Everything Girls Love (EGL), Vita Coco water, Qream accessories and a ‘Swag Sex Packet’.
