The Ultimate Girls Festival was in full effect Friday evening as Deshai hosted an exciting networking event at Gocha Salon called “Conversations & Cocktails” with lifestyle blogger Perez. Attendees enjoyed a fun filled evening of dancing, mingling, adult games, and complimentary cocktails provided by Smoke Liqueur. After the mixer was the after party at Suede Tapas Lounge.

Atmosphere Saturday morning at the Atlanta Marriott Buckhead Hotel and Conference Center, guests were in for a real treat as they indulged in a delicious catered breakfast and were later acquainted by Keynote speaker, award-winning lifestyle and technology blogger Courtney Luv as she emphasized the importance of living with a purpose and passion. The rest of the morning consisted of break out sessions that covered topics in health, fitness, looking good and bringing thrill and excitement in the bedroom.

Once the break out sessions were done, VH-1’s Family Hustle castmate and celebrity hair stylist Shekinah Jo and Shaunell Robinson, founder of the infamous high-end beauty brand Conceited Inc, united with a panel of female business owners to educate guests on creating a business and how to excel in your industry with the “So You Want To Be A Boss” panel.

Notable panelists on the male panel included Harold House Moore, Omar Slim White, DJ Fadelf Soon after, an all male panel entitled “What Men Really Think” featured Harold “House” Moore of VH1-’s Single Ladies, Omar “Slim” White, and DJ Fadelf gave women a male perspective on how to retain a healthy relationship and what men really want.

Panel Discussions (2) The enthusiastic guests asked the panel many interesting questions like “is it ok to sleep with someone the first night?” “How do you know if you have the right person?” as well as addressed trust issues in relationships. Each panelist addressed each question with their own perspective and guests were enlighten to know that their responses did not invoke the typical male stereotype and put a lot of minds at ease.

Later on that evening, the festivities commenced at 595 North Event Center where attendees networked, competed for cash prizes and enjoyed a show from TV One’s R&B Divas castmate KeKe Wyatt. All proceeds were donated 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.

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.
