Macy’s Philadelphia Fashion and Design Networking Event

24 Oct

I attended the Philadelphia Fashion and Design event last week, hosted by The Enterprise Center. The panel included successful designers and fashion bloggers. It was inspiring to be amongst other creative professionals who talked about their experiences, on their way to the top of their game. Attendees were able to network with others in the audience and the panel.

Each presenter talked about how they became known in the fashion industry. One of the designers had her first shot with the great Patty LaBelle, now she is designing for people attending the Oscars. Their was also a fashion blogger who travels the world and has a dual citizenship in the US and UK. A former architect on the panel began designing clutches through freelancing and found that he grew a passion for it, once he got laid off from his job. He advised us to find creative ways to make your company a success.

This event was held at Macy’s  so you know it was only right that we were able to get a tour of the Macy’s incubator located in Center City Phila. For those who are not familiar with the Macy’s incubator, it is an organization that provides the tools and materials needed for small business owners in Philadelphia. To get accepted, you would need to have consumers (even with a small amount) and you would need to complete their application. I recommend contacting Macy’s, if you are interested.

Below are pictures from the event including the Macy’s incubator tour.

Quick: Transformation Guide to a Better You #2

14 Aug

The final steps that will help you live your life in a positive way. Believe in yourself because you can do this.


Take care of the things you possess. This shows gratitude for what you are fortunate enough to have. Meaning, keep your space clean and free from clutter. Clutter can be such a distraction and it can be depressing. Have you ever felt so refreshed after you have cleaned your space. Imagine feeling this daily. If you find this difficult, try cleaning one thing daily to start.

Believe in your purpose with conviction. Pursue the goals you would like to achieve and DO NOT give up. People can be discouraging towards them selves and not even realize it. Don’t discourage yourself, UPLIFT your self. Even in doubt because there is support out here. I am supported every time I share a post on WordPress and I am truly grateful for you all, as my supporters who uplift me and encourage me to keep writing.  

Walk with confidence. Your posture makes a difference in the way you are approached by others and even the way you feel about yourself. When you stand in confidence, you exude strength, resilience, and power. Don’t let anyone or anything take that away from you.

For my personal gain, I pray every day twice daily. Morning and night. Some people are not spiritual and I will not place judgement on your beliefs. I will always encourage prayer but not force it upon anyone because everyone has their own individual journey. 

Remember to always think positive in every moment because your perception is a reflection of YOU. -Amber

Best wishes to you!

Quick: Self Transformation Guide to a Better You

6 Aug

For those who are struggling everyday trying to figure out why your life is not going as planned, take the time to transform your mind set and focus your energy on positivity.

Like you, there were many days and nights I did not understand the direction my life was going. It’s because my life was not going the way I foresaw it and it caused me to think negative and exude negative energy in my daily life. This can make life hard, less enjoyable, and often lonely.

I challenge you to the first step in changing your life.


Rest 8-12 hours daily. 

Eat healthy Foods like : greens, avocado and fruits

Do one thing daily to help another person

One positive change in a person a day can help transform the world, so why not start with you.



Question: What Women Really NEED from a Man..

19 Jun


For a while I have tried to figure out the answer to what I really want from a man. I have came up with a long list.  When I really should have been concentrating on what I need.

Like most young single women we want so much, but are willing to give very little. Then some, give too much while receiving very little in return. This could also be effecting your relationships or lack there of. So I starting thinking what is it twww.1coffeehouse.wordpress.comhat I really need!

Figuring out what I need prevents confusion based on illusions when I am attracted to a guy. It’s like running a mile race with no hints of direction, but you can still see the finish line. You need a guide and ladies your needs may be different from mine. For example, I will state what I need.

I need a man that can protect me from hurt by helping me feel secure in our relationship which means being consistent, persistent and stable. Share intimacy with me that my finger or battery device can’t satisfy nor replace. Provide me with company when I need someone to share my deepest thoughts with. A partner to help me manifest my goals into a reality. Even if I am successful at accomplishing some on my own, there is always room for more. A man that will respect my role as a women instead of taking advantage of me as a woman.

Men if your out there and understand, please come thru.

What I want is different from what I need. Wants can be impractical, illusive, physical and materialistic. It is troublesome and threatening to a male ego. It’s like a man meeting a perfectly good women but he doesn’t notice her because her breast are not enlarged or her butt isn’t big enough compared to Nicki Minaj i.e hurts female ego.

I am not implying that you should settle for less, but focus on what matters most. Do you often think about your needs versus your wants? If so, do you put your needs first?

On another note: I’d like you to take a look at the link below and think about your role as a woman. Also if you are a man, do you agree with Queen Wuraola-Zynab Ogunwusi objection to gender equality?
