I’m Kayla Lawrence, summer intern here at LoveBrownSugar.com. What an amazing year to be a part of the LoveBrownSugar team.
Being an intern for LoveBrownSugar has been an amazing experience, and being able to assist in celebrating its sixth year is even better. I applied for the LoveBrownSugar Summer Internship not only because I was eager to learn about the Social Media and Marketing industry, but also because I enjoyed the relativity of the blog. It is rare that you find a blog that speaks to the financially conscious fashionista while personally connecting with the experiences of black women. To contribute and learn from a brand that plays such a prominent role in the fashion and beauty industry for African American women has only been a dream of mine. However, this summer that dream has become a reality. I hope to not only learn necessary skills as a career woman but also to grow as an individual throughout this interning experience. I will always love LoveBrownSugar for taking a chance on a girl without interning experience, and allowing me to do what I love.
In its six years, LoveBrownSugar has had the pleasure of working with women of various backgrounds and personalities, but with one thing in common – their love for LoveBrownSugar. You see, LoveBrownSugar does not only leave a lasting impact on its readers, but its contributors as well. Check out some of the reasons we love LoveBrownSugar:
For the first time ever, I’m not hosting a big and extravagant anniversary party. If you’re an old school LBS fan, you know that ever since my 2nd blog anniversary I have been throwing epic parties to celebrate the blog’s growth and progression and to give you guys an opportunity to experience my favorite things. Though I’m beyond excited that this month LoveBrownSugar makes 6 years in the blogging business, I’m even more excited about how much the brand has grown and expanded. We’re now not just LoveBrownSugar but also BabyBrownSugar.com and the @BrownGirlsLove IG community.
So to celebrate that and to also give a few of you some one on one face time and encouragement, I’m hosting the first ever BrownGirlsLove Empowerment Brunch! Though I’ve never hosted a seated brunch before, I wanted to do this because I get so many questions from you all who are inspired by my blogging journey and are interested in starting your own brands and businesses, but are not quite sure how to start or how to take it to the next level. This is an opportunity for me to not just grab a quick selfie with you but to really TALK to you and get to know you one on one.
In addition to a delicious entree and brunch cocktails at super chic brunch hotspot Pranna (79 Madison Avenue, New York, NY), every guest will also receive a free gift bag as well as attendance at a LIVE #LBSLounge session in which I will be doing Q&A about everything from the style and beauty industry to building a successful digital brand. I LOVE sharing my knowledge (hence why I’ve been blogging for 6 years) but especially love connecting with people face to face.
Those of you who are in NYC (or plan to be here on Saturday, August 1st, 2015), there are still tickets available for purchase. Come on down and bring a friend for food, drinks, networking and one-on-one time with yours truly. There are only 35 seats allotted for this event and it’s first-come/first-served so don’t miss out:
