Jessica Robinson of Justini Cocktails hosted a “Year of the 30” Girl Boss Dinner Party in celebration of her birthday. The event consisted of cocktails, a three course meal, a performance from T-Ray the Violinist and a whole lot of Black Girl Magic.

Jessica and I went to high school together and we share a mutual friend. I have always respected her grind. She’s a go-getter and her energy is motivating. So when she posted the Save the Date I jumped at the opportunity. Plus I am always looking for a reason to dress up!

As the drinks flowed so did the conversations. We discussed experiences and ways to keep pushing towards your goals. To me a Girl Boss isn’t about what you have, it’s a mindset. It’s about being confident in your field and empowering other women. “Motivation over Competition” as my sis Kandice Guice would say. If you missed it don’t fret! The event will be turned into a series and held quarterly.

My three course meal consisted of a Seasonal Salad, Roasted Lamb Chops with Wilted Spinach and Truffle Garlic Mashed Potatoes, and Banana Fosters Cheesecake prepared by Chef Gabe Noel. It was delicious!

Last night Jessica said some of us thought we would have it all planned out by now, but that’s not how life works. I used to be so hard on myself and I don’t know if it has something to do with reaching your 30s but you get this go with the flow attitude. I’m just living. Now…”Let’s Be Clear”… I’m going to always stay on my grind but not only am I celebrating the wins…I am appreciating the losses.
