The long-awaited Summer release of Girls Trip is finally here. A film that is very familiar to any group of friends took over last night's big screens at our very own Megalex. We can boast about the fact that we saw it FIRST (even before the American & the European markets).
Kenty Lichtenberg of Kerai Kreative Style joined forces with Clarissa Mardenborough of Food, Fashion & Beauty Expo. & T. Carty of Island Spirits N.V to organize a movie night for friends on July 20th. After reaching out to different businesses to partner up with them, the ladies created a cocktail hour, sponsored by Island Spirits. About thirty women came out and had almost two hours of fun and chit chat that surrounded group traveling and of course planning their next Girls Trip while treating their taste buds to a true mixology experience.
The film was hilarious, what I enjoyed the most is that it really was about the trip, not the background stories of who these women were. Just Like Sex And The City, Friends, Living Single, Fresh Prince Of Bel Air....every character sounded like one of our friends! It is no surprise that it broke the records during their opening weekend for women were planning for months to turn out in numbers and watch this movie that would enable them to share laughter and even a walk down memory lane from their last "Girls Trip"!
The event took place at the Megaplex Party Room where the ladies were welcomed by Island's Spirits Champagne Bar and more. We were happy to have SEL Maduro & Sons as the chosen travel expert, to share some tips and ideas when it came to travel in groups, which can be challenging if you do not have the right dynamics in the group. Also present were La Beauty Room, showcasing a sample of the unique items that are available at her store. While the ladies mingled and laughed, they were treated to sweet treats by MMM Delights & Irresistible Desserts and Gourmet Popcorn by La Beauty Room. The whole idea behind this movie night was to come together and share some of our traveling tips and experiences, right in the middle of our vacation period, many of us are still contemplating taking a quick getaway and it is always great to know your options. Although most people make their travel bookings on line, we think the personal touch of an agent is always special....it is simply called "the Human Touch. Which is why we thought partnering up with SEL Maduro & Sons was a good idea. SEL Maduro & Sons promoted their upcoming group trips Dominica ‘World Creole Festival” Travel Package: 27th to 30th October, 2017 and Miami “Black Friday” Package: Thursday 23rd November to Sunday 26th November, 2017. SEL Maduro & Sons can be reached at + 1 721 54 23410.
During this cocktail - hour the ladies were treated to goodie bags provided by SEL Maduro & Sons and Island Sprits. The ladies also won different prizes by playing Travel Trivia's and were challenged to test their overall knowledge about the world. There also was the opportunity to have pictures taken, coverage by Snap It Studios and one of our young upcoming photographer Mr. Kaie La Touche.
We are big on women empowerment, networking and collaborating, and it took a group of phenomenal women to put this event together, and although catering to a small group, the coordination and planning behind the scenes is always key. It was amazing to see it all come together and we hope to be able to continue doing a series of events that will promote friendship, education and lifestyle.
