First Annual "Lavender Hill" Friendsgiving Dinner

Friendsgiving a growing Trend that we are so digging here at The Iman Project. So much that we decided to have our First Annual "Lavender Hill" Friendsgiving Dinner. There was laughter, joyous talk, good food & fab cocktails. Cocktails were made by the amazing bartender of  Kitchen Kandy Girls  Moments were captured by the uber cool Photo Wagon DFW's First mobile photo booth. And our hands were adorned by magical Henna by Samira's Henna Design  It was such a beautiful time that was shared by all. I also love that it just wasn't about the ladies and I....but each beautiful queen brought a unwrapped for The Warren Center toy drive and this made my heart smile. Asenet fouder of the ultra chic clothing boutique Suburban Chic brought some amazing clothes so that ladies could have their own personal shopper for the night. Cocktails, shopping, Henna, Homecooking....Ummmm sign me up! Is it too early to already be planning the next one. With so much going on in the world around us we at times forget to take a moment and just spend time with friends. We are always moving and shaking. Im so glad that I was able to spend this time with some amazing ladies and have these memories to share with others like you. Also a special thank you to Katsi of Photography by Katsi who does such a wonderful job capturing every moment I wish to chair, Enjoy!

Magnolia at Summerfield.....

So I was scrolling through guilty pleasure. I came across Joanna & Chip Gaines latest cover shoot with their new Magnolia Journal. I instantly fell in love with the cover. I don't know if it was the southern home feel, the barn setting, the farmhouse table or the husband & wife duo.... Whatever it was it made my heart smile. Take a peek {Magnolia Journal}Fall in love.....we have.

I mentioned to my husband we have never taken any pictures with our farmhouse tables. We both looked at each other and was like no we haven't.... We need to fix this! Well since I was loving the theme of The Magnolia Journal, I thought why not play with this theme. And with that Magnolia at Summerfield: A Farmhouse Thanksgiving was created. Kate from The Everyday Hostess and I had so much creating this Beautiful Southern Modern Farmhouse look. Here at The Iman Project we are all about Vintage meets Modern and with the help of Coral Lane  fab white modern chairs and our beautiful "Kai" Victorian Sofa & Vintage Dishware my little vintage/modern heart chuckled.

Location, Location, Location....there was no doubt of where I wanted this shoot to happen. I mean have you seen Summerfield Tate Farms  ahhhhmazing and Melissa is the icing on the cake. The space, the barn, the southern hospitalty was perfect! Ok enough of my chatter...check out a few fabulous pictures shot by the beautiful Photography By Katsi {fall in love....we have}

A special thanks to all who made my little Magnolia dreams come true....we appreciate you and we love you.

BLOOM......Where you are planted.

We have all heard the saying so many times before. "Bloom where you are planted" but do we really know what it means? This means a person should take advantage of the opportunities they have in their life and be grateful for what surrounds them, because wonderful people and places exist around us only when we choose to seek them out. Well this past Saturday I was given an opportunity to not only BLOOM once but twice. I was invited to BLOOM...the picnic by the beautiful host Aquia of The Faux Fancy You ask what does BLOOM stand for? {Black Looks Outstanding On Me}It was a beautiful evening of networking, melanin praising, fellowshipping, and love spreading. To say the least it was slightly needed. With everything going on right here in our own city and to humanity. Love Spreading this weekend was at the top of my list. #duh

Days in Dallas have been long, awkward and draining lately for most including myself. All of our hearts have been heavy and weighed down with confusion, annoyance, anger, grief and sadness. As humans we are not built to be sad all the time. Or filled with so much anger this plays such a huge toil on each and every one of us. Spiritually, physically, emotionally and financially. So when Saturday evening came..... I smiled, I laughed, I shedded tears of Joy. There were deep conversations, there was wonderful food and fabulous fellowshipping. Each Beautiful QUEEN brought a dish along with their beautiful story. We all needed this. The room was filled with talks of married life, single life, our business, dating, race, culture & love.

The food was served Pot Luck style. We were each able to bring our fav dishes. I don't think some wanted to share theirs all the way. In hopes they  would have more  to take back to the apartment. Did anyone say Mattitos Queso Dip lol. {Completely understand why was}I made tea sandwiches and ofcourse played with florals & my handmade Mexican blankets. All in all BLOOM...the picnic was a hit. And even though we were suppose to be outside and our plans were brought inside. We were still able to spread the stories, the laughter, the hugs and the love AND that is PRICELESS.

We Rise By Lifting Others......


Almost a year ago I joined an amazing girl group! I'm not going to lie I was a little hesitate at first because I don't do the whole group thing too well. And My brother laughed at me and said I was buying friends. All that aside I am so happy to be part of an amazing group of ladies. I have attended some beautiful events over the past year and I am so thankful for this. Circle Seven Five is about Community, Networking, Value & Partnerships. Not too long ago we had our #CSFSpringFling....And it was just perfect! It was a Beautiful day of laughter, beauty, flowers, champagne & of course cake. With the Dallas Arboretum as our backdrop. Looking back through all my pics it made me smile. It made me smile because today as women, as small business owners, as human-beings we become so wrapped up with "competition" wrapped up in "She doesn't like me" "They Don't Like me." Consumed with being "The Mean Girl". I use to not understand that we truly rise by lifting others. I didn't know that being mean, and beating ones down WAS NOT showing that I was tough & strong. But in actuality that I was weak. I was scared of my own insecurities. And the only way I could cover this weakness up was by being mean. Once I realized that nothing compares to peace....peace within yourself. A "You DON'T have to wear pink on Wednesday" sort of peace. You then get the big picture. We don't have to compare, we don't have to compete. This world is built with so many different, beautiful women, with so many talents. We are all gifts! Gifts to ourselves, Gifts from God & gifts to our community. In the end its #CommunityOverCompetition & #WomenEmpoweringWomen.....Because Remember
ONLY "empowered" women "EMPOWER" women. Take a peek of a few pics from this beautiful day. A few from us The Iman Project , a few from the Founder of (Circle Seven Five) Cassidy Raye Fischer and of course the amazing photographer. Cottonwood Road Photography

#DallasLove......#Kwestival Style #Duh

Photo Compliments of Beckley & Co

Kwestival......Welcome to OUR Neighborhood
Wow Wow & Wow! Saturday April 23, 2016 was amazing! It was a day that showed Dallas....What Dallas, Texas is all about. This fabulous family friendly event was put together by @kwest & a very special lady....who I am beyond honored to call my friend @threetwelveco (Lauren Lee) aka @Lalacakes aka " The Mayor of Dallas" This event was the first of its kind that took place at Klyde Warren Park. 12 Dallas neighborhoods, 60 plus local vendors all were in one local place. Kwestival was just what Dallas needed. The Food, The Talk, The People, The Laughs....Everything. We had the pleasure of throwing our Chic, Southern Boho Charm inside the VIP Tent. That included... our "McKinney Avenue" Farmhouse Tables. This was also the birth of our Handmade Wooden Wall by my husband that paired perfectly with a few local vendors designs & décor. Ladies & Gents! The VIP Tent, the event....just Downtown Dallas was perfect!! We are so looking forward to the next one! Don't believe us take a peek & fall in love with Dallas, Tx all over again just like we did! #duh

Last but not least....major shout-out to the other fab VIP sponsors! Their Passion, Love and Smiles made the day even more perfect! Make sure you check them out!
