WHAT IS SOUL SOCIETY 101? Out of frustration of traveling to different cities and not finding the right places to go and things to get into, and also running out of things to do and places to go in my own city, SoulSociety101 was born. I envisioned a site that cut through the clutter of other city guides and laid out suggestions that would particularly be of interest to me and people just like me. I also thought of the community that this could build – a network of the cool people sharing their favorite hot spots and keeping other like-­minded members of our community in the know. Through my experiences, travels and the help of my trusted friends around the country, we compiled a go-­to guide of entertainment – restaurants, nightlife, shopping, sites and recurring events in the top cities, that come personally recommended from someone like you. You’re never going to agree 100% with the opinions of any city guide, but I bet that you that won’t find one that you’re more in synch with than us. Every city has some soul! We’ll tell you where to find it. Whether you’re itching to try something new in your neighborhood, or hoping to live like a local on vacation, SoulSociety101. com is the friend in your pocket who’s going to show you a good time. Soul Society 101’s mission is to improve the quality of lifestyle within Black communities and inner cities by developing a plaform that both entertains and informs our people with our particular interests and social activities, in our own voice. Though we reach our audience with entertainment and lifestyle content, the larger mission is the uplifting and progression of Black people through community and positive activity.

Her passion for jewelry and fashion lead her to branch out and start her own line.

A woman can be anything, to anyone, at anytime. She is a true chameleon and in all things is always beautiful. Designs by ADORN NEW YORK were made for her. Whether she’s being serious, silly or sexy there is a design that goes perfectly with her mood. Each accessory is handcrafted with care and a unique essence with the use of various materials from suede, beads, leather, crystals and precious metals and stones. Careful consideration to each design is based on the everyday woman who must wear multiple hats and own multiple roles daily -- the businesswoman, head of household, sister, lover, matriarch, and so much more. These women are true chameleons. They are diverse and can evolve into whatever the situation calls for them to be, and that is something that makes all women beautiful. Raqquyah celebrates every success of ADORN NEW YORK, no matter the size, and is always humbled by the genuine compliments and encouragement given her by every customer. “When I see the faces of women light up after seeing my designs, I am amazed,” She says. “ADORN NEW YORK has helped me see myself as a created masterpiece and I hope it does the same for the women who encounter ADORN NEW YORK and all that we stand for.” ADORN NEW YORK continues to sell accessories at street fairs and other events throughout New York City and on the Internet at www.adornnewyork. com. ADORN NEW YORK accessories can also be found at Chouchounette Independent Designer’s Boutique in Brooklyn, New York.

Inspire the Brand (ITB) was founded in May of 2011 by Karen Osorio, and Manuel Suero. From childhood friends to entrepreneurs and business partners, Osorio and Suero have always dreamed of transforming the fashion world with a shoe collection inspired through the arts, culture, and metropolises found across the globe. What started off as a dream has now come into fruition through hard work and persistence. Karen Osorio, a Venezuelian native, arrived to the United States at the age of 8, and Manuel Suero arrived from Dominican Republic to the United States at the age of 4. Their cultural upbringing is what has inspired them to travel the world, make their dreams come true, and transform those ideas into a shoe collection. Their goal is to bring fashion rich cultural vibes and dynamic customary practices into the fashion industry. After being friends for over 10 years, in 2011, Karen Osorio, and Manuel Suero decided it was time to make an impact on the fashion world by using their passion and experiences to create a brand. Their passions for culture, arts, and fashion, have become the foundation of Inspire the Brand. And just as they have been touched through various life experiences, they hope that ITB would prove to be a gift and an inspiration for people around the world.

In 2008 Brandi Russell established Sacred Heart Collections a clothing line that takes a page from her personal stylebook and is inspired by style icon, Coco Chanel. Sacred Heart Collections was brought to life not only as the culmination of her dream but to bring fun and flirty, confidence back into the mainstream design. As a social butterfly, Brandi and her friends found themselves wanting to stand out in a crowd, but not have to sacrifice sky-high NYC rent as a result. The birth of a chic, unique yet affordable clothing line was born. The young, independent, carefree women that make up the collection’s target audience have adoration for the cohesive and interchangeable; comfortable and sexy; affordable and uncompromising pieces. Every garment is tailored to a woman’s natural curves, while leaving just enough to the imagination. The color combinations, trims, and details are key ingredients that make each style special. Since it’s original conception, Sacred Heart Collections embodies the same belief as the late Coco Chanel, “A girl should be two things: classy and fabulous.” Sacred Heart Collections styles have been seen on the likes of Keri Hilson, LeToya Luckett, Keyshia Cole, Lydia Hearst, Kelly Rowland, Meagan Good, Alicia Keys, Jennifer Hudson and my more young Hollywood stylistas..Celebrity gifting suites, fashion shows, product placement on national network television and national magazines all bring more attention to Sacred Heart Collections. Working day and night, Brandi continues to independently fund and operate Sacred Heart Collections.

LAS VEGAS

GET AWAY ADVISORY

Within the last six years I’ve been to Vegas three times. Each time I’ve gotten into completely different things and had a great time three different ways. 1) A Double Couples Vacation – the sweeter side of Sin City. 2) Buzz Light Year – nightlife and the least sober, word to Hangover 3. And 3) Doing it Grand – The Grand Canyon, amusement Parks on top of skyscrapers and the best show, ever! With all of this under my belt, I can finally say that I feel like I have conquered Las Vegas. (I guess third time’s the charm.) Does that mean that I should have just had a twoweek long vacation in Vegas to get my full fix? Absolutely not. Vegas trips should be short and sweet. But it does mean that there are so many options for what to do once you touch down in “Sin City,” that you could get lost in the sauce if you don’t know what to get into. Because I am a great person, I outlined all the must-do Vegas activities and all my tips - from the best hotels to how to save hundreds of dollars - to make sure that you can have the time of your life in Vegas on the first try!
