Billie's Jeans Denim Day 2014 supported by DID Nail Paint and the Dasha Wellness & Spa

During my undergraduate years I lived a virtually carefree life, social outings and my grades were among my chief concerns. I assumed my classmates led equally self indulgent lives until I became better acquainted with one  young woman.  She managed a full course load while working and caring for two young children, one of whom was not her own. She was intelligent, determined, and well liked by her peers all while secretly living as a victim of violence at the hands of her fiance. I think I was the only one trusted with that information but I remember wondering how that violent cycle had become her reality. Unfortunately, she is not alone, there are many woman and children who become victims of various violent acts every day. This year on April 23rd Denim Day was recognized in LA, NY and other areas around the country. Denim Day is a day designated for a national discussion on how we all can have a share in working to prevent violence in our personal and professional lives.
I was honored to attend the DASHA Wellness & Spa in Midtown Manhattan to learn more about Denim Day. At the event I also leaned about some brands that used their time, resources and products to support Denim Day. Adrienne Blanks, the owner of the 4 free nail polish brand,  DID Nail Paint, sold bottles of her polish that evening and donated a portion of each sale towards Denim Day. Shannon and Darren Pollack, owners of the DASHA Wellness & Spa, not only opened their doors on 115 E 57th to house the  15th annual celebration of Denim Day but they also offered free massages to all in attendance.
Please check out the video below to hear more about D.I.D Nail Paint and the DASHA Wellness & Spa.

Have you seen: First

Greetings Everyone

When I saw a trailer last month of Jahmela Bigg's new web series, First, my interest was immediately piqued. First, is a promising new web series that features actors we don't get to see with regularity on our television screens. The perfectly crafted trailer highlights a brief encounter between old friends whose telling glares and gentle movements are exchanged over a melodic tune, that's pretty much all I needed to be hooked. 
Last night, was the premier of the first episode and as I clicked the play button I was hopeful that the episode would live up to all that I had imagined, and deliver it did. If you have yet to be counted among the thousands of views that this new series has already garnered, do yourself a favor and click the play button below!
My new favorite web series stars stellar actors Jahmela Biggs and Will Catlett.  James Bland serves as the talented director of this series. 
From the acting to the editing and music, this series is IT!!!

What do you think of the first episode?
