On Saturday, May 18, 2013, Yandy Smith’s Everything Girls Love (EGL) held two events, “Girls Love Girl Talk” (GLGT) and “Girls Love Nights Out” (GLNO); first the brand hosted a daytime “Girls Love Girl Talk” panel and the topic of discussion was “Balancing Act:” Being your best self in every area of your life. Hosted by Yandy herself, the engaging and emotional event featured a panel comprised of the women behind the inspirational and attention grabbing articles found on www.everythinggirlslove.com; Love and Sex Editor, Precious Avorkliyah, Beauty Editor, Regina Tucker, Fashion Editor, Monica Romero and Wall Street Executive, Ayanna Stephens all provided advice and experience on how to juggle family, careers and everything else in between. Special guest speaker of the day was entertainment mogul, Mona Scott-Young, who pleasantly shocked the sold out all-female crowd and provided some motivating words of her own.
Later that evening, Yandy also hosted the pampering “Girls Love Nights Out” event in Brooklyn, NY at the swanky The Nail Boutique. Guests enjoyed a pink carpet experience, live music, hors d’oeuvres, shopping, drinks, spa treatments and makeovers.
