Pajamas & Lipstick Is The Girls’ Night In Experience We Didn't Know We Needed

popular

What do you get when you mix pajamas, lipstick, and the company of an epic girl gang? Well, xoNecole's inaugural Pajamas & Lipstick event of course!


Planned by It's Your Party, the event took place on Friday, December 21 in Buckhead Atlanta, and offered everything a lit girls' night in could ask for. We had desserts by Good-N-Sweet Treats on deck, signature cocktails, tee pees, and a spicy card game that would truly act as the grand finale of our incredible night together.

Although I loved the attention to detail, the accents of pink and xoNecole blue that dripped throughout the intimate setting, what I loved most was the tribe of women xoNecole's Editor-In-Chief Necole Kane helped cultivate by bringing this idea to fruition. A room full of strangers and writers quickly evolved into an unbreakable bond as we shared dating tales and the moment when we found our self-worth.

The highlight of the night was a custom card game called Pajamas & Lipstick that was inspired by xoNecole's hottest topics on dating, relationships, sex and womanhood. Each attendee pulled a colored paper from a fish bowl to see which color card we'd get to pick from the pile. What happened next was nothing short of amazing.

The event ended up being the girls night we didn't know we needed. A circle of support, unity, and transparency, one that echoed and embodied the site, mirroring our core messaging of empowerment and uplifting all multifaceted woman. We were able to completely let our guards down and be open to share our experiences in a non-judgement atmosphere while also receiving the experiences of others.

As a result, for a lot if not all of us, walked away from the girls' night in experience with an undeniable feeling of empowerment, our heads held high, and crowns unmoved.

Gabrielle Union is not here for the label stepparent. While she became a stepparent after marrying Dwyane Wade in 2014, that doesn't mean that she wants to be defined by it. The actress spoke about the dislike of that term during her appearance on Glennon Doyle's "We Can Do Hard Things" podcast.

It was actually pretty close to this time last year when I penned the piece "How To Get Through The Holidays If You Don't Observe Them". Unlike some of the other articles that I write for the site, I pulled that one from very personal experience. Being that my personality is very wired to "be good" on something once I know its origin, holidays are something that I tend to take a pass on; this includes Thanksgiving (some insightful reads on its origin are found here, here and here). Still, this doesn't mean I'm not aware of the fact that many people use this time of year to reflect on their blessings and to say "thanks" for all the good that has come their way. Since I like to write on relationships a lot, I thought to myself, "Why not come up with ways for people to show gratitude to their significant other?"

I didn't want to say that I was having bad luck. That's not something I'd ever want to speak into existence over my life. But I will say something wasn't right. I had a few coins stacked in my purse from a one-time project as well as from an ongoing one. Then I received emails from not one but two publications within days apart asking me if I'd like to contribute a few articles every week. Opportunities and money were flowing in. If you follow the law of attraction, you'd say I was vibrating on a high frequency.

Tinashe has learned a lot about her mental health while growing up in the entertainment industry. The singer/songwriter began dancing at four years old and had her first movie role at five years old.

From there, she went on to be in a girl group The Stunners and act in TV shows like Two and a Half Men. Now as an independent artist focusing solely on her music, the "All Hands on Deck" singer opened up about the struggles she faced in the industry.

My favorite time of the year is the start of the official boot season which begins during the transitional period between summer and fall. What's most exciting about the sudden drop in temperatures is stepping back into those sleek pair of boots for the first time in months. Whether zipping up oldies but goodies or investing in a new fall 2021 boot trend, this year is all about the calf boot. Specifically, this is the best option when easing your summer clothes into the appropriate fall looks.
