Radio personality & sex/relationship expert DeShai Cole aims to empower women of all ages at this year’s Ultimate Girls Festival (UGF) taking place Friday, March 14th and Saturday, March 15th. A portion of the proceeds will go to The Center for Black Women’s Wellness, Inc.

I’ve Fallen In Love With Voscato!!

Image(For Ages 21+)

I will not do too many posts about Alcoholic beverages but I HAVE to talk about this! I know what you’re probably thinking? What on earth exactly IS Voscato???? Voscato, with a motto “The Best Of Both Worlds” is a blend of premium vodka and sparkling moscato founded in January 2013. So here’s the shorten explanation, Vodka + Moscato = Voscato. Why did the makers go with Vodka and Sparkling Moscato? Voscato blended these elements to market their product to both men and women. Voscato specifically state in their bio:

A creation from the best of two worlds, the perfect union of wine and spirit that has the elegant softly sweetened taste of moscato wine for the ladies with the subtle underlying strength of vodka for men, resulting in an amazingly refreshing infusion that tantalizes and teases the taste buds, all delivered in a burst of delicate bubbles.

Image

Voscato comes in three flavors, Peach, Rose, Coconut and will release a non-sparkling version soon!  I had the pleasure of tasting Voscato’s Peach flavor at The Shoe Lounge Second Year Anniversary: Life of Luxury Pamper Party and it was DELICIOUS! A Voscato representative at the Event allowed attendees to taste regular Moscato and Voscato to compare the two, and there was a distinct difference. Moscato is sweeter than Voscato (due to Vodka mix) but it is still very sweet. The Vodka in Voscato is not overpowering but you DEFINITELY know its there.  Plus the texture of Moscato seemed much heavier than the Voscato (if that makes any sense).

Overall, Voscato is good in my book. I am a fan of sweet wines and fruity drinks and Voscato did not disappoint. Its more of a “party drink” but it can be used in any occasion rather it’s a gathering of friends, going on a night on the town, or even having an intimate night in. You decide.

Voscato is currently available in Atlanta, GA, New York and Miami with future plans to expand to more cities! If you are in Georgia, you can purchase Voscato at these fine retailers here.

RANDOM DISCLAIMER:

Do NOT let that sweet taste fool you. The Vodka will definitely sneak up on you. At the Shoe Lounge, The Rep for Voscato told me this is 3 glasses is equivalent to 7 shots! O_O. Two glasses and I was feeling it (but than again I’m a light weight 🙂 ). As with all alcoholic beverages, drink responsibly.

#IHeardMastermind: Rick Ross’ Private Album Listening Party In Atlanta!!

#IHeardMastermind: Rick Ross' Album Listening Party In Atlanta!!

On Thursday, February 20th, Jennifer and I attended Rick Ross’ Mastermind Album Listening Party on behalf of {C} Magazine. The event began at 8 PM and as I was in route, Jennifer texted me and told me she was running late and would arrive around 9:30-10 PM. Instantly, I felt an explosion of butterflies in my stomach. I get so nervous being at events by myself let alone around Entertainment Industry Professionals. I arrived around 8:20 and after getting by cops, security, and three RSVP checklists I was inside. Nerves began to set it. Anxiety spread all over my body once I scoped the room and didn’t see any familiar faces. I grabbed a drink from the bar to calm my nerves as I observed everyone in the room. 10 minutes goes by and I see a familiar face from {C} Magazine and my mini panic attack goes away (lol).

Once the main room in the studio was setup, everyone was asked to take a seat. We were advised not to take pictures so Jennifer did not bring her camera. BUT later found out media could take pictures so Jen leaving her camera was all in vein 😦 but here are some pictures here from FreddyO. Overall it was a great event. Had the opportunity to mingle (once the nerves were gone lol), eat good and meet new people!

They had a variety of flavors for attendees to try such as Coconut Pineapple, Lemon Lime, Kiwi Strawberry, Orange Mango, Pomegranate Blueberry, Pink Grapefruit, Black Raspberry, Crisp Apple and Peach Nectarine. I absolutely LOVED the Kiwi Strawberry and gave my Mother the Orange Mango (which she adored 🙂 ).

Skincare brands that caught my immediate attention: AMRII and Beau & Luxey. Both brands presented quality skincare products that were natural, smelled heavenly and felt WONDERFUL on the skin! I received product samples from both brands so a product review is on its way 😉

If you are into candles and in-scents like I am check out Pink Zebra. The scents were AMAZING! And the company promises a longer burning time than the average candle by approx. 30%.
