THE YELLOW COVER IS A MAGAZINE MODEL & CREATIVE DESIGN STORY-THEMED — EDITORIALS BRAND. WE ARE CONNECTING PAGES. HIGHLIGHTING BUSINESSES.

Matter of spring is a special edition and the first of our quarterly specially designed releases. The Yellow Cover Magazine Inc has a solid entrepreneurial vision, with plans to work with businesses around the globe, small and large. "Recognizing that we wanted this issue to be vibrant and fun, we again worked with Nathasa Rae to commission another signature art collection of our brand warriors, Yaj & Anai.

Written by: Trebresa Smith

How we started It was March 2020 and day two of a global pandemic and shutdown. Not understanding the intensity of what felt like an invasion caused me much worry. The passion gripped my heart, something I had never experienced. I looked at my children, two of which were essential workers, in panic and said you have to stop working; it is not safe. People are dying, and your job is not worth it; my daughter looked at me with so much passion and said, Mom! "Someone has to be there for the customers." We walked toward this big 9ft door in our apartment and opened it almost in fear of who would be on the other side — made a fast dash to the elevator with masks and gloves on and wrapped in plastic front to back. On we went out to take my daughter to her work. I drove around after, and I saw several closed signs on the door of businesses; I sat in my car in tears and asked: what are we going to do? These businesses will have to keep their name alive; how will we know who is open or not? I decided to write out a business plan and scheduled some appointments. I went to a very famous man, Miguel Wilson, and we sat down to discuss my idea, and he gave me some solid advice.

04

Today, our vision is modest, and we are a magazine model for creating storiesthemed marketing and renowned for delivering highly effective editorial and branding for local businesses in many different cities and bringing it to readers' attention. Our design advice empowers brands to express themselves confidently with marketing additives that compel attention and live in the moment. We speak of the excitement of a brand announcement with visually compelling and entertaining design — stories. "Recognizing that we wanted this issue to be vibrant and fun, we again worked with Nathasa Rae to commission another signature art collection of our brand warriors, Yaj & Anai." The Yellow Cover team dug deep, and this commission is now on display and ready for ordering at West Elm Avalon; we are over the moon excited! We introduce the stories of some phenomenal brands locally and abroad and learn how to support them in this issue. For a young magazine, the future looks pretty good. The Yellow Cover Magazine Inc. expert team comprises managing partners, mid-market sales experts, interior/creative web design architects, photographers, and creative writers.

"Suga’s Cheese Shoppe & Café is the first restaurant in the South and possibly in the nation to centerpiece pimento cheese Pasta. " - CHEF SUGA'S SHRIMP SCAMPI -

In an increasingly crowded space, not all restaurants are as inspiring as Suga’s Cheese Shoppe & Café. Since opening in Powder Springs, Georgia, Chef Suga has been known for delivering highly addictive dishes made with her loved pimento cheeses. Their mouthwatering Shrimp Scampi is not to be overlooked and is a favorite on the menu. Chef Suga and her entire staff know how to cook, and the ingredients in this dish will blow you away! Ingredients: Made with Pesto & Feta Pimento Cheese in a creamy white wine garlic sauce, sauteed onions & grape tomatoes on a bed of angel hair pasta. Served with garlic bread (Grilled chicken can be substituted for shrimp). Come and get it!

Stacey West earned the nickname "Suga" (pronounced "Shuh-gah") when her first grandbaby was born; she didn't want to be called "grandma." She quickly became known as "Chef Suga." Chef Suga graduated from Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts in Atlanta and worked with some of the top chefs in the Atlanta Metro area, including Chef Hilary of The Hil at Serenbe and Chef Holly, Executive Chef of Georgia Grown. With her husband, Robert West, a financial specialist, and her son Quinton Jones, a chef, Suga's Enterprises, LLC launched in April 2016, offering southern brunch favorites. Customers overwhelmingly latched onto the pimento cheese, and Suga's Pimento Cheeses launched in June 2017. Fall in love with Suga's and see what the buzz is all about.

AN EYE FOR BEAUTY WITH THE MOST SOUGHT AFTER EVENT DESIGNER KHADIDRA MUHAMMAD

Written by Trebresa Smith

K

hadidra Muhammad is the Founder and CEO of Priceless Event Planning and to speak to such a phenomenal woman was a great experience. Some of the less reported or written stories are stories of great people who do great things, and with our topic, we began this interview. The eye for beauty is a gift, and at the beginning of her career, she would often dream of visually dressing the mannequins in the Gap store where she worked as a cashier. This humble talent worked with all the top A-list celebrities and left them speechless. My first question was; how do you develop your ideas? 'It all starts with the location, she replied.' I design for the client's personality, but the space is essential.

It can't be a focal point; it has to be the entire space. Khadidra believes that there must be an impact at every entry point by her vision to achieve a successful overall balance. There is no recipe to how her mind works; she thinks about the color, space planning, and the number of people attending. This is a critical factor for this remarkable event planner to ensure that every area of her creativity is in respect of the number of guests. She is more than a designer; she is genuinely heaven-sent. I can think of the song, this gift that she has the world didn't give it, and the world can't take it away. Back in the time when she worked at the Gap, she would visualize dressing the mannequins or imagining what the holiday themes would be. Khadidra said "I couldn't define what it is that helps me decide overall." She loves to be inspired, and she gets ideas from seeing things on a walk down Fifth Avenue, like a cherry blossom that looks amazing. She stated she would capture it with her camera phone and save it for closer viewing.

Khadidra started as a one-stop-shop; she stated it was just me in the beginning ' thinking I could do it all, and in some cases, she did. Her team has grown to about seven, and she only works with top-quality vendors. She doesn't have a favorite fashion designer, but her love of shoes and handbags is on her list. When you arrive at this level of success, it often comes from life experiences and one-day early morning, like 4;15 am. Khadidra was shot unexpectedly; hearing this was shocking, and even at that very moment, she managed to contact all her vendors for an event that would take place later that day. Her star power goes without saying, and her work for some A-list celebrities brings us to this unique baby shower photography. Her clients are the best, and this Baby Wright project was designed for Taina and G-Herbo. We give it up for this impressive and beautiful woman. Moreover, Khadidra's magic is worth taking note of. For a stellar event design, don't hesitate to get in touch with her today via email: Contact: info@pricelesseventplanning.com

Photography By Joshua Smith - YC


JESSICA GUTIERREZ BLADE TO BEAUTY - MICROBLADING, PERMANENT MAKE-UP, OMBRÉ BROWS "GETTING MY BROWS MICRO-BLADED WAS THE REAL GAME-CHANGER. I KNEW I WANTED TO GIVE EVERY WOMAN THE SAME EXPERIENCE. "

Introducing Jess. Born and raised in Texas, she moved to the peach state in 2011 at 17 with no plan, just searching for bigger things. In 2018 she attended Paul Mitchell The School Esani in Roswell, following her passion for Beauty; unfortunately, styling hair didn't cut it for this Beauty. In 2020 she discovered permanent makeup; it blew her mind. Jess had been filling her brows since 2011, and after going through all the ugly brow stages, she finally had perfected it but still was that girl who couldn't go to the pool in the summer; the fear of being brow less!

Team Yellow Cover Magazine

She decided to invest in her future and perfected her brows in March 2021. Jess especially loves how low maintenance and time-saving permanent makeup is, but her true passion is giving women confidence. "I didn't have it for many years. I've been her." Her clients are a huge part of her life, & she's built solid lifelong friendships. Overall her goal is to have each client leave with healthy, beautiful brows and feel confident when they walk out the door. Blade to Beauty services includes Microblading, Permanent Make-Up, and Ombré Brows. Jess must examine her client's skin and lifestyle to determine which brow works best. Blade to Beauty is located in Roswell Ga at the Salon Lofts - Roswell Corners Loft 19 and is ready to take new clients to give them that exceptional brow service that only she can provide. I don't think you can call Alexa to fix your brows, but you can tell Alexa that Jess is available and will be proud to serve you. Microblading is ideal for clients without oily skin, and an average procedure takes approximately 3 hours. Brows will heal on an average of 10 days. DM her for promos and to schedule.

"EACH DAY, I WILL FIGHT THE BEST I CAN TO SERVE AND LOVE MY FAMILY WELL AND CREATE ARTWORK THAT WILL INSPIRE OTHERS TO KEEP GOING."


The Yellow Cover Magazine Inc May 2022 Spring Edition

ARTIST NOTE

N

athasa is my name and my day starts at 7 am with a good morning from my new puppy or young daughters. As I work myself out of bed, I take our puppy on a walk, and my girls tag along. We start our homeschool curriculum aiming to be done by noon. As I put my kids down for naps and quiet time, I begin working on commissions, art designs, and illustrations. My father routinely stops by each day and helps clean up and take care of the kids when needed so that I can focus on my art.

Team Yellow Cover Magazine

My husband returns home from work and enjoys cooking dinner. This gives me focused time with my art and often a napping puppy at my side. I break for dinner and family time, frequently walking with the family and dog before helping my husband put the kids down for bed. I then continue working on art at times until a late-night stroll with the puppy breaks up the focus. I then fall asleep to repeat this routine the following morning. However, life is not always this perfectly planned out ideal routine. So often see our lives through the Instagram lens, trying to make ourselves look 'perfect.' More honestly, I have medical issues that can significantly impact my daily functioning. In reality, I wake up at a range of times depending on my physical and mental health. I'm not perfect at homeschooling, but I try hard to ensure my daughter learns every day. My father is a great help, and even with his support, I struggle between the back and forth of art and giving attention to kids who want some mommy attention, and yes, I struggle with mom guilt. Bedtime for the kids is a whole other battle itself. Then I sit down to work on art with varying energy levels and often pain as my chronic illness or mental health struggles to not just sleep.

Each day, I will fight the best I can to serve and love my family well and create artwork that will inspire others to keep going. I started my warriors to inspire me to push through the most physically painful moments of my life. I knew that I was not alone in feeling heartache, pain, and depression. I knew others needed to be encouraged to continue to go on while embracing their true natural beauty.

"I create mighty fierce warrior women who embrace their inner strength and beauty. Spring 2022, I present to you The art of Yellow, a collaborative commission of two sister warrior princesses named Yaj & Anai. Every woman, young and old, can become one of these fantastic warriors whose mission is to inspire; picture yourself just like them who gain strength from life in the field of spring floribundas and buttercups.

THE ART OF YELLOW

YAJ

ANAI

WARRIOR PRINCESS YAJ

WARRIOR PRINCESS ANAI

Each art piece is meticulously hand-created and is truly embedded with a message of self-love and acceptance. You have my promise that the amount of time spent on each piece is to bring you the highest quality in the form of art that I can create by hand.

I create artwork to display in your home when you seek something with power, meaning, and limited prints. Paintings found in stores are often reproduced thousands of times, where my artwork will be stored in the 'vault' once reaching 100 reproductions.

When it comes to reproduced artwork (art prints), I always seek out the best printers and beautiful papers because the paper is vital to me. The art prints you receive must be the same weight and texture as an original art piece.

All original art pieces sold from me will never be reproduced. You will give yourself an empowering part and, be few, own a unique limited edition work of art.

The Yaj & Anai art collections are designed in partnership with The Yellow Cover Magazine. They are to inspire and bring attention to brands in communities worldwide with the exclusive message currently on display' at The West Elm Avalon in Alpharetta, Georgia.

P

amela A. Hope is an enterprising entrepreneur. Growing up with parents who were pastors and serial entrepreneurs, they inspired and motivated her to become who she is today. A Christian Visionary leader, empowerment speaker, author, talk show host, and mentor, Pamela has empowered, encouraged, and inspired others.

Pamela's health care journey began as a teenager after seeing her father battle acute lung cancer for many years, ultimately succumbing his battle to pneumonia. While seeing her father suffer, she told her parents that she wanted a healthcare career. At 16, she became a certified nursing assistant and began working at a nursing and rehabilitation facility in her hometown. After graduating high school, Pamela continued her path in healthcare. She went on to further her education, where she would receive more intense medical training and a degree in inpatient care to continue her healthcare career. While in college, she conceived her first born child. However, she did not allow becoming a young mother stop her. She continued pushing forward, determined to complete what she started. As a young single mother, Pamela pushed forward in her health care journey and gained employment working with telemetry and cancer patients in a local hospital.

She would later join the American Red Cross where she worked and supported HIV/AIDS patients in the community. Several years later, she would join an HBCU Student Health Services in Atlanta, Georgia where she enjoyed working along side other nurses and physicians as well as interacting with college students on a daily basis. As a young women in her early twenties, many of the students felt comfortable confiding in Pamela about their personal life and health issues. In her early 30's, Pamela met her husband and became a work at home mom. Although Pamela worked from home all while raising her children, health care was still her passion. In 2009, with the failing economy, she stepped out on faith and founded Essentials Wellness Plus, a health and wellness company that believes in the holistic and natural approach. In 2012, she continued pushing herself and became a Certified Christian Life Purpose Coach. As a result, she launched Empowerment for Success Personal and Business Development, Inc. Together with her healthcare background, she would now coach other women on how to take advantage of all-natural wellness products and services that are designed to work in harmony with their overall health, and financial goals.

– @superfuel

https://www.infocassmo.com

We are a global brand energy supplement company.


Super Fuel and Xtract 12® were created as a source of nutrients for the body after teaming up with a prominent team of doctors and scientists whose mission in life is patients' health and wellness. Our team used this key idea to create a brand product—from compelling ingredients to a healthy component impacted by the necessary daily nutrients needed.​ Over twelve months, SF and X12 owners have come together to serve customers who lack the required antioxidants and phytonutrients needed for everyday use. ​ SF and X12 are never recommended to replace vegetables daily, but people rarely consume enough healthy foods to keep their bodies healthy.​ Simultaneously, it provides a meaningful, innovative, and delicious health supplement and resonates as a healthy product in the healthcare region. Super Fuel and Xtract 12 is a global health brand with a retail and e-commerce strategy for consumption and a brand opportunity for distribution and retailers. ​ Super Fuel and Xtract 12 vision was to develop a standout energy supplement to ensure that our bodies received the balance of supplied nutrients from natural sources that we lack in our daily regiments. ​ The task involved commitment and daily dedication to working with the best curators and doctors' opinions to deliver a fresh and compelling take on a supplemental energy product. A blast of natural energy was a slogan developed in real-time after customers' positive feedback and the distribution of its results. The positive news showcased the hard work and engaging process and the differentiated brand expression that is not typical in its category. ​ A Blast of Premium Natural Energy!

The Yellow Cover Magazine Inc May 2022 Spring Edition

CULTURE FOODS MARKET Culture Foods Market's mission is to deliver curated ingredients worldwide, right to your doorstep. With a wide variety of authentic tropical ingredients, they strive to reconnect people with the familiar flavor of Africa and the Caribbean. Where should we meet Culture Foods Market? The store is located at The Grand Pavilion, 11130, Statebridge road Johns creek Suite D101/102 GA. The store has a quaint friendly and enjoyable atmoshere and the vast amount of African & Caribean choices are great. Lola Oke attended The Yellow Cover Magazine photoshoot event and brought some amazing beans and rice from her own line of Honey Beans. A brand like Culture Foods is a market segment that has been seen but rarely accomplished here in Georgia, and hats off to this lovely family for bringing this market. If you're looking for that special African or Caribbean ingredient, I can bet that Culture Foods carries it. Going back to the very essence of flavors is what this market does, and a full line of products is available on their website. Our team was given the task to bring to you some store items relative to our issue patina of yellow and showcase the beauty of this extraordinary woman for all the world to meet. Lola and her family connect with their roots and phenomenally express it all. The future is bright for Culture Foods Market, and the difference they are making again is working for the good of the community. The perfect strategy is the secret ingredient to building a successful brand, and positioning consistently and aesthetically is what they have done. A way to sum up Culture Foods Market is genius.

www.culturefoodsmarket.com


Culture Foods Market is an upscale African and Caribbean Supermarket featuring authentic ingredients, spices, arts/crafts, and cookware – it's an innovative environment and atmosphere that inspires continued patronage. Culture Foods is owned and operated by businesswoman and IT Project Manager Lola Oke. A family business from the start, Lola has had help running the market from Daniel Oke, Husband Ethan Oke, Sharon Oke (Children), and other staff members who also share in the dream of the company. Lola lived in Alpharetta for over 20 years and noticed a growing influx of African and Caribbean ethnic groups in Georgia's Johns Creek, Alpharetta, and Cumming areas. Despite this population expanding, she saw a lack of grocery stores that carry authentic ingredients to make everyday foods for the ethnic groups mentioned above. Lola was raised with entrepreneurial skills and built fifteen years of experience working wither her parents in Nigeria starting at the age of 13. Hence, she decided to make a brand that adequately represents African and Caribbean cuisine and heritage.

"The market features ingredients used to make common African and Caribbean Foods such as Jollof Rice, Jerk Chicken, Nigerian Rice, Honey Beans, Eforiro, Fufu, etc., and pastries and snacks. Culture Foods Market also sells ingredients compatible with vegetarian and vegan diets if specific customers are not interested in meat products."
