Brunch and Bubbly Recap

Because Women Love Brunch Presents: Brunch & Bubbly: Toast To The Good Life

Every event is usually able to be summed up in a few of words. Because Women Love Brunch: Brunch and Bubbly could definitely be described using celebration, elevation, and sisterhood. There is nothing more amazing and special that having a space where women can genuinely connect with one another. Imagined a brunch of 50+ women, you don’t know many or in some cases anyone, but you don’t meet a stranger! That’s the case for a lot of the women that attend their first of many Because Women Love Brunch experiences. 

Brunch & Bubbly focused on creating authentic connections, learning from one another, and celebrating ourselves as well as the women around us.

because-women-love-brunchMajor Key to attending a Because Women Love Brunch: You get out of every event exactly what you put into it. You cannot go to an event in hopes of meeting new people, but not open yourself up to build those relationships. You have to be open and genuine in your approach and conversations.

“True beauty will radiate regardless. It’s not your duty to remove the blinders of those who choose not to see you. Light illuminates light”

What we experienced at Brunch & Bubbly

The more you praise and celebrate your life, the more there is in life to celebrate. Last month Because Women Love Brunch celebrated it’s 1 year anniversary.  And I have so much gratitude and love for the women who continuously support the idea of celebrating average women doing extraordinary things in their lives. These women are the reason why our community is so amazing! Together we have welcomed over 1,900 women into our community, held 12 events in our 3 different chapter cities New York, San Francisco, and right here where it all started Dallas! I could not have done any of this with their love and support.

Don’t make it about what you can gain, but rather what you can give. A true relationship is about give and take; in order to create and cultivate lasting friendships. Ask yourself how you can benefit the people around you. How can you love them, celebrate and encourage them? You can initiate conversation though a simple text or a hang-out on the weekend. Some people may find this to be odd, but you don’t have to be BFFs with someone in order to hang out! Friendships aren’t built overnight, they come from having shared experiences over time. And most of all choose a squad of women that you share a mutual level of respect and admiration for. IMG_0809

“I am not in competition with with my sisters. There is enough space for all of us to win. Honestly, I’ve found that my come up is actually better when there’s more of us involved.”
“We need women who are so strong they can be gentle, so educated they can be humble, so fierce they can be compassionate, so passionate they can be rational, and so disciplined they can be free.”

Girl Talk Panel

Our Girl Talk Panel was entitled ‘Catch Flights. Not Feelings’ and filled with experts on the matter:

De’Ana of De’Ana Fierce– blogger, yoga instructor, and road trippin’ babe who travels for fun and often for work. De’Ana taught us about traveling smart, getting the most out of a road trip, visiting national parks and hidden gems that can be found by doing a little research. 

ShaSha of Busy Being ShaSha– travel guru and expert in booking the best travel deals. ShaSha gave us some great sites to shop for flight deals, helped us get the most out of our limited vacation days at our 9 to 5’s and the best places to shop for travel luggage and accessories. 

AJ– country hopper and contributor to The Culture Supplier educated us on the difference between your passport and visa, planing group trips with friends, best and alternate travel dates, and my favorite which was tips on using Google Flights!

Stay connected to www.bwlbrunch.com as I will be posting a blog next week sharing some of my favorite tips and tricks dished during our ‘Catch Flights. Not Feelings’ Girl Talk Panel.

#BWLBrunch: Kick Off Brunch Recap

Photography: Afritina

What is BWLBrunch? 

Imagine a room full of women that are directors, educators, hr professional, sales executives, and medical professionals surrounded in the company of like minded women laughing, talking and discussing the future. Imagine those women as entrepreneurs and leaders that desire to excel not only in their professional life, but personal businesses, goals and aspirations as well. #BWLBrunch stands for Because Women Love Brunch; but we are more than a social group, we create a space that provides women the opportunity to gain accelerated relationships, collaborations, and fellowship with like minded women. This is for that woman that has enough “friends”, but often seeks like minded women to discuss business ventures, future dreams, and accountability.

What do we do?

We build connections that force one another to level up. Our vision is to connect women through brunches and other activities such as fitness classes, goal setting sessions, and we’ll later feature an invite only setting for entrepreneurs and accelerated leaders. We  encourage collaboration, community and elevated focus on constant progression.

Shun Melson’s Boss Brunch

Shun Melson opened her Boss Brunch with the reason that she wanted to do such an event,

“When I first came into the industry, no one wanted to teach me anything. They didn’t want to answer any questions. They though if they taught me something that I would take their clients or steal their business. But that is not the type of mentality I want YOU to have, nor is it the type I have. I know my worth and I know that I am GOOD at what I do. When you WIN I WIN.”

Shun Melson is the perfect example of ‘work hard’ for what you want in life, ‘go hard’ for yourself and your brand, and finding a way to make the most out of every opportunity that is given to you. It was truly an honor to be able to hear her story at the Dallas Boss Brunch.

Shun Melson uses her Boss Brunch as an opportunity to be upfront and help you with the questions you may have as you enter entrepreneurship throughout varies industries. With a successful career as a celebrity stylist, personal stylist and owner of her newest baby (2 years and counting) her tee shirt line; Shun is a great example of a women gaining headway in a tight knit industry.

Here are some of the key takeaways from Shun Melson’s Boss Brunch:

  • Stay hungry
  • Always go above and beyond
  • Work your network
  • Show your client what they say they want and what they don’t know they want
  • You should always be networking
  • Get your credit in tack
  • Your rate is your worth, don’t be afraid to talk money
  • Your IG profile should not be private, your heading should say what you do, change your master pic often, and your IG should be focused on building your brand
  • Stay loyal to people in your industry

She provided so much information and such a genuine insight into the industry; I thank and appreciate her for that. A lot of the things she referenced had to do with her come up and hustle as a stylist, but I guarantee you that if you take the same drive, dedication, passion that she has for her craft and apply that to whatever your business or “come up” is; not only with you succeeded but you will be the best to ever do it in your industry.

You can learn more and see where Shun Melson will hosting her next Boss Bunch, Fashion 101 Class, and shop her tee shirt line all through her site.

I have to send special love to Shun’s Dallas team that was in the building: PR- @txprgirls,Catering- @southernbestcatering,Vendors- @vanitycurves@shoptobu@emandtina@blushfacecosmetics@velmasfitgram@divaologyllc@kemejuwelz@lovelindseyj, and Venue provided by @7essentialelements
