ZURI PERLE AT THE NIGERIAN DIALOGUE GALA

The 12th of September 2014 was the Nigerian Dialogue Gala held at the Ritz Carlton Atlanta Georgia. Zuri Perle was invited by Doyin Fashakin (Events by Doyin) on behalf of the organization to showcase our products to the attendees, with a percentage of all sale proceeds going to support the organization's efforts



It was a night of good food, laughs, good company and inspiring speeches. In attendance were Professor Patrick Utomi, Dr Obiageli Oby Ezekwesili, JEDI e.t.c.

Nigeria Dialogue is an organization based in the United Kingdom and was launched on the 22nd of October 2011 at the Radisson Edwardian Bloomsbury St, London WC1B 3QD.

Their vision is "to build a community of 40 million people who will usher in a civil and developed Nigeria"  To learn more about Nigeria Dialogue and how to become a member of support their cause, kindly click on the following link http://www.nigeriadialogue.org

SPOTLIGHT ON OUR CLIENT "BUBEBAKES"

I get to meet so many wonderful people and personalities in my line of work. One such person is Gbubemi, a client of ours who resides in Canada. She was referred to us by another client who is also based in Canada.

Her first order was this red crystal set;


and she was kind enough to send in a picture of her wearing the piece



She was so pleased with her initial order that she placed another order shortly after the first.
A few days after she placed her second order she sent me this picture asking me if I liked the necklace



My first thought was, OMG....... I hope this lady isn't going to wear this piece :).
I struggled to find the words to convey my thoughts as politely as I possibly could, seeing that she was a paying client. I responded to her message stating that I did like the set but not the accessories used at the side of the necklace.

She then told me that the necklace was made from sugar and was a cake top for a cake she just finished making for a client. We had a good laugh and starting talking about her hobby/business 'Bubebakes'. As with most small businesses Bubebakes had started as a hobby, and even though she claims it still is, with close to15K likes on Facebook I beg to differ.
After going through a couple of pictures she sent to me, I came across this particular cake and totally flipped





 One of my clients based in the U.S. was looking to have a cake made with a similar texture to the above for her upcoming 50th birthday.  Unfortunately her bakers had tried but were unable to replicate the texture. I have a picture of what they initially did, and to say it was a disaster is an understatement.  However, in order not to upset some people I will not put the picture up.  Gbubemi was kind enough to pass on the trade secrets for that particular texture which I then passed on to my other client who was quite happy with the information provided.

Here are a few more cakes of Gbubemi that I love.

Have a great weekend people :)

SHEA RADIANCE AND ZURI PERLE

We recently had the opportunity of being part of a photo shoot by Shea Radiance, an eco-luxury beauty brand located in Columbia, Maryland a surburb in the Washington DC metropolitan Area

I met the co-owner of Shea Radiance, Mrs Funlayo Alabi, at the TUM 2014 showcase held in Maryland, July of this year.  She was gracious enough to agree to be my mentor, every entrepreneur needs people to look up to, I was even more excited when she told me about a photo shoot she had in the works.

Shea Radiance is a company that creates effective and luxurious beauty products using Shea butter as their  key active ingredient. Their products are obtained from Northern Nigeria, positively impacting the lives of women and children in that region, and the products are delivered in sustainable packaging. For more about the company and their products click on the following link http://www.shearadiance.com/about-us.

I currently use their Shea Radiance moisture rich hair butter and the result on my dry scalp has been amazing.

For the Photo Shoot they decided on the following pieces;





This is my favorite picture from the shoot.







We loved collaborating with Shea Radiance and look forward to future endeavors. Don't forget to check out their website www.shearadiance.com and follow us on instagram at www.instagram.com/zuriperle
