FabuNOLA Spotlight ON:

Motions “SHINE” VIP Lounge
Special Event
Essence Music Festival
July 2 – 3, 2010
(12-6 pm @ Harrah’s Hotel)

Hello My FabuNOLA Family!!!

As you know from reading my last email, I’ve had a break from writing my FabuNOLA eNewsletter for a while to take care of things I must focus on right now for myself. I’ve also been out of town recently for work so Sexy Salsa Sundays has continued to be on hold until I can return to get things back into the FabuSwing (or should I say FabuSalsa) again. And, due to the re-routing of my connecting stand-by flights, I’m now in VA and able to visit my family for several days … an even bigger blessing since I haven’t seen them since last October.

I hope you’ve all been very well since I last connected with you. We all need time to turn within and to focus on self (and what you really want to manifest in your Life) as much as you possibly can. And, although you know how much I LOVE FabuNOLA, sometimes you have to get away to gain a greater appreciation and perspective … allowing for greater clarity to push ahead victoriously in the right directions. Truly needed for my energy to shine brightly again from within.

And speaking of shining, I’m taking a break from my writing break to reach out again and tell you about a very special event coming up during Essence Music Festival, July 2 – 3, 2010 (yes, it’s already that time magical time of year again). This a special message and part of my FabuNOLA “Spotlight ON” Series. And the spotlight is definitely ON:

Some of you might remember that I got the opportunity to work this event as a Local Co-Host & Emcee to Celebrity Host Keisha Knight Pulliam (who was a great delight) and Celebrity DJ D-Nice (and Derrick is so very nice … Hey D!!! ~ www.d-nice.com) for last year’s MOTIONS VIP Lounge during Essence Fest Event. This year, DJ D-Nice will be back again spinning some magical tunes to keep your energy pumped to enjoy fabulous festivities throughout the weekend. Host Kandi Burruss (ATL Housewives) will be joining this special event this year to keep you entertained while the MOTIONS Krewe will UP your beauty & fun factor (see more details below).

I can definitely assure you, this will be a pampering experience like no other to get you in an even better (and beautifully shining) mood for the nightly concerts and any other great parties going on around town. And the greater news is that this is a FabuFREE VIP experience event that’s a MUST for all of you (yes, you Fellas can surely attend and have LOTS of fun too … hint hint … where else are you going to find so many beautiful women in one location at once). And if you are still wanting to manifest Essence Concert Tickets, this is the event to be at to win them.

Here’s what’s up at the MOTIONS “SHINE” VIP Lounge this year:

-Hosted by Kandi Burruss (ATL Housewives)
-Music by DJ D-NICE (NYC)
-Complimentary Hair and Make-up
-Complimentary Cocktails and Hors D’Oeuvres
-EMF Ticket giveaways
-Additional prize & product giveaways courtesy of Motions, Dollhouse, FHI and others …

Event will take place on Friday (7/2) and Saturday (7/3) from 12p-6p @ Harrah’s Hotel on Poydras St.

Now, if you are new to FabuNOLA, please check out my FabuNOLA Blog with past postings.
The FabuNOLA Blog has a brand new look (which I’m still tweaking a bit). Also, go there to check out the sections, “FabuNOLA It List” and “Eco-FabuNOLA,”  that you can see posted regularly there. And please direct new people here … and ask them to sign-up for this eNewsletter too. The FabuNOLA Blog lists Music, Dance, Wellness & Eco Happenings. More will be posted/updated as I can get to it.

I’ve also had to start a new personal Facebook page for the overflow of new FabuFolks I’m always meeting and connecting to. Go to http://www.Facebook.com/Cherylyn.L.Tompkins.II if you are NOT already connecting to me on my first personal Facebook page. You can also find posts from me on the Facebook FabuNOLA, Twitter (both ending in /FabuNOLA) & LinkedIn (under Cherylyn L. Tompkins) Pages.

If you are new to the FabuNOLA Family, welcome to the FabuFamily!! You are amongst a FabuKrewe of Great Beings … all striving for greater happiness from within. We are all beautifully inter-connected in this way. You are always loved and supported here. I greatly appreciate you for the support you’ve always shown me in return!! I’m wishing you only and all of the best.

Okay, that’s it for now. Until the next time … I’ll see You on the Page or in Person! And tell them FabuNOLA sent YOU. As always … here’s hoping to see You … Out & About!!

Be & Live Well,
~aka Miss FabuNOLA~

Would you like to be a BIG part of the growth & expansion of a positive movement in New Orleans (and beyond)? If so, please consider contributing in order to insure these efforts continue to happen.


FabuNOLA eNewsletter, Blog, Facebook, Twitter, etc. are all created, operated and maintained purely by my efforts to spread as much positive Spirit throughout our FabuCity (and Globally). Through the years now so many of you have received my FabuNOLA emails, funding has not been involved (only recently has there been minimal advertising while transitioning towards greater advancement in this direction).

As the outreach numbers continue to expand (which is so beautiful), I want to be able to grow with you and offer a better experience. The only way this will happen is by opening up to more funding sources (Investors & Sponsors are always welcome … as well as gifts of ANY size).

I’ll leave you with these Words of Encouragement:
“One of the fascinating things about human beings is this:  Believe for long enough that you are not as smart as others and this will actually lead to intellectual ineptitude.  But, confronted with the same doubts, if you choose to believe that your mind is merely dormant for now, lacking in exercise, once you begin to train it, there are no bounds to what you can achieve.”
Wisdom for Modern Life – Daisaku Ikeda
