While I was away at the Essence Music Festival at Crest, there were a number of celebrities making the rounds throughout New Orleans! Carol's Daughter had their pop up shop which allowed people to buy a number of their products AND to get a chance to chit chat with a number of celebrities! Unfortunately, I was in the midst of doing my Meet and Greets at Crest but I had to share two of my favorite people that I wanted to see if my times had meshed a little better - Erica from Mary Mary (which I ended up seeing later at NOLA Emeril's restaurant later that night) and who is pictured next to founder, Lisa Price and of course Tank! One of my fave products right now is the Macadamia Hold and Control Smoother which my boyfriend uses all the time to style his hair. I love that not only is this a fab product in terms of unisex use but as many of you know Paul is Italian, Sicilian and Hungarian and loves this in his hair so it's definitely a multi -texture tool! He loves using this on the front of his hair for a thicker look as he uses another styling gel for his sides for a sleek look and then another for the back. You can't say that guys don't pay close attention to their hair!

New York Fashion Week in Sept (and to much of the same extent in Feb), makes up a large portion of my year as it's all about hitting shows, seeing new brands and establishing my relationships. This season, I celebrated my birthday (always) as well as the 4th anniversary of my digital baby and then launched my Kimmie Smith x Sebago Spring 2012 collection at the Robert Verdi Luxe Lab with me doing Meet and Greets off and on through the season. Today marks my last Meet and Greet as well as the last day of me running through all of the amazing fashions that I have seen this season. It has been such an amazing opportunity to share my work with friends, colleagues and new connects! If you know one thing about me, you know that I love chatting it up with others about what my passion is and spreading it around. With this being the last day, coverage of Spring Summer 2012 NYFW comes to a close but there will be odds and ends that will be included tomorrow and the weekend so that we will be back to our regularly scheduled programming.
