Valentine's Day: The Love Below

Valentine’s Day is near and ladies remember your wardrobe includes what’s under your clothes as well! For this blog post, I’ve collaborated with AdoreMe.com to give you the exclusive on what to wear under your clothes for that special evening!



AdoreMe.com has a great selection of lingerie and sleep wear. And for my curvy ladies guess what!? There’s an awesome plus-size lingerie selection for you too! 

Are you into the tradition pink, red, and black for Valentine’s Day? That’s cool but what about switching it up a bit?! Go navy or lavender, no matter which one you pick I’m sure it’s going to be a hit!

I’m a big fan of the longline bra. It just reminds me of a sexy tank top. Then they have these nice kimonos that would look great even just for lounging around the house.

The B Firm Public Relations

This year we’ve come across so many women entrepreneurs that are making their mark in the industry. Well sisters Erica Dias and Ashley Jernigan are power house PR mavens of The B Firm PR in Atlanta, GA. The B Firm PR provides experienced Marketing, Public Relations, Promotions and Brand Management services of fashion, entertainment and beauty clients.


I’ve took notice of the work of these ladies for the past year or so when I was following Erica for her Table of 20 and her vintage store Vintage & More 101. I got a chance to speak with Erica about her transition from being a wardrobe stylist, to establishing a well known PR company. 



What made you want to start your own PR firm?

What made me start my own pr firm was the fact that I was getting opportunities in the wardrobe industry in Atlanta that weren’t cohesive to my brand. I was working for a high-end, luxury company but it was always put on my heart start my own pr firm. However different companies that I would have thought that I would like to work with but I didn’t get the jobs. You know that saying, “if opportunities don’t come then you create your own.” I was talking to my sister and telling her if I want to take this seriously then I have to create my own lane. We went from talking about it at 11 at night to having a website made the next day.

I really wanted to help people and be an influence and provide results for clients. I just decided that it's about quality rather than quantity. It wasn’t’ about having the top celebrities on my roaster, it was about building relations and making my clients just as relevant as those celebrities. 




What are the misconceptions about public relations that people make?   
     
The misconceptions that people make are that we put together and attend all of these flawless and glamorous events, photo shoots for clients and that it’s all fun and games! But it’s not. You really have to put in the work!

Then, many may think that we’re able to duplicate their career status from a previous client results. It’s definitely a process that doesn’t happen overnight. 


Tell us more about Erica’s Table of 20.

It’s a chic, intimate dining experience. We choose special guests where we know that people admire their stories. It’s very up close and personal, in a good comfort zone. It’s like we’re all family. 


What advice do you have for others who want to be as successful as you in the industry?

Do your research! Continue to constantly read and learn because knowledge is priceless. If you want to be great you have to make sure that you’re around great people. Be consistent and persistent so you can see results, and stay professional! 

Speaking with Erica I realized that she has that go getter spirit embedded in her. Maybe it's because she comes from a long line of entrepreneurs. With the motivation from her sister, and long talks with her grandmother, you can tell that she has an awesome support team and she’s very passionate about what she does

One thing that I’ve learned with interviewing Erica and other women entrepreneurs is that you have to be fearless. You never know, that the big break that you’ve been waiting on could happen if you would just take a risk!

I WEAR GLAM



 Another year of bundle hair being a huge hit! With so many hair companies out there, what are some of the important things that you look for when you purchase hair? Affordable prices, quality hair, celebrity clientele? I WEAR GLAM has all that and more! I got the chance to speak with the owner, Latoiya Roland about brand and its big plans for 2016.







With there being so many hair companies, how does I Wear Glam separate themselves from other hair companies?
Well my primary focus are my customers. I’m really hands on making sure the customers are getting what they want. Other companies have a staff of 500 where and they’re like “oh we’re making money! , and that’s all they care about. Whereas, I have a team but I am very hands on with my brand.
My connections have helped me be the choice of celebrities for hair. I don’t think that other companies have that support from celebrities.

Social media is extremely important on running a business. How has it played an important part in your business?

It is the easiest tool to get and it’s free! It really did help to get the word out. I didn’t think that I could have customers in Australia and that’s all from promoting on social media. That doesn’t make just me a local brand but it makes the brand international. I didn’t know that it would go this far but I’m grateful that it did. 

                                 
.
You have some high profile celebrities (Rihanna, Nicki Minaj, Taraji P. Henson)  wearing your hair. Who is your next dream client?

Of course Beyonce! Everybody loves Beyonce and want her as a client. We’ll get there one day! But if I have to choose some else I would choose First Lady Michele Obama. (Good answer!)

 What made you get a physical location?

Just being fearless. I knew that I had a good product and the feedback was great. It’s doing very well and it’s been a learning process since we’ve only been open for a few months. 





What can we expect from I Wear Glam in 2016?

Well, I Wear Glam virgin hair care products (shampoo, conditioner, curly cream, and a hair masque) are coming to Walmart.com. Maybe getting to franchising, and possibly wholesale. Making sure that the structure within the company meets the needs of our customers. You want things to go as smooth as possible. Structure is the key. 


What advice do you have for that young lady who is trying to follow her dream as well?

Don’t let anyone build your dreams. Just go for it. 


Speaking with Latoiya makes me want to put an extra pep in my hustle! Lol. We see you working girl!
 
I’m no stranger to the I WEAR GLAM brand! I’ve been a customer for over a year and I have no complaints. So if you’re looking for a new hair company to purchase your bundle hair that's long lasting, good customer service, and affordable prices, I highly suggest I WEAR GLAM.
 
Be sure to follow I WEAR GLAM on Instagram @iwearglam and check out their website at iwearglam.co!!
