By Leslie E. Royal

Hi Beautiful Family and Friends!

How are you? I trust that you are having a great day! I love t-shirts! I buy them for myself and many people give them to me as gifts! When I go on press trips, I am given tees from different cities, states, islands, and countries! If you are like me an have one serious collection of t-shirts, you want to do something creative or special with them!

Enter Janet McCloud Montgomery! She is a nationally renowned celebrity journalist and creator of From My Big Eyes! Several years back, she had a t-shirt contest in which she encouraged her followers to think of creative designs for her tees! This past week, she created a How-To video to show her viewers how to accent our shirts in our own special way! She gave great directions and after following her instructions, I added my own accents to my t-shirt! Click on this link to view her video called “DIY T-Shirt Designs”!

Exclusive “Summer Must-Haves” Presentation Offered Great Insight on Some of Coolest Products on Horizon

E0B06263-E316-4B5D-800C-79376C4834D0

Susana and I had an EXCLUSIVE discussion via Zoom regarding summer products that ChicExecs represents. Prior to our chat, I set up some of the items that she sent to me in my home office.

 

Hi Beautiful Family and Friends! 😊

How are you? I trust that you are having a great day! As many of you know, I write product reviews or product profiles on a regular basis. Typically, publicists email me to gauge my interest in receiving products in order to consider including them in my articles. This week, I experienced a first.

A lovely young woman by the name of Susana reached out to me with a great idea! She is a senior public relations account executive and lifestyle expert for ChicExecs Retail Marketing Agency. Susana asked if I would be willing to join her for an EXCLUSIVE “Summer Must-Haves” Zoom Deskside in which she could share great products coming on the market. I accepted and we had a wonderful conversation.

What I really liked is that we had a real time Q & A session that allowed me to ask questions and get responses that would be of interest to you and the readers of my various publications. Susana sent many of the products ahead of time and that allowed me to sample them prior to our discussion. I learned so much from our in-depth chat. I look forward to many more of these Zoom Desksides.

It is my pleasure to give you a sneak peek at some of the products that will be featured in upcoming articles. Feel free to click on the links below to check out some of the products that Susana and I discussed.  Also, I have included several articles that I’ve written in the past several months. Please follow me on social media @LesliesLane so that you can see the articles as soon as they are published. Thanks so much for your support and enjoy your week!

Sincerely,

Leslie E. Royal

Coming Full Circle: The Wedding Announcements Have Been Published and I’m Overcome with Joy as We Celebrate This Experience of a Lifetime

2019-12-09 13.32.04

Hello Beautiful Family and Friends! 😊

Happy New Year! How are you? I trust that you are having a great day! I’m sitting here typing this post and looking at the Sunday edition of The AJC.  You know. It’s almost surreal.  It seems like just a short time ago (more than 30 years), I would sit in our apartment in Southwest Atlanta or later in our DeKalb County home and read the wonderful wedding announcements in the society pages of The Atlanta Journal and Constitution. This publication is the premiere newspaper of the South and parents of all cultures made their children’s engagement official in it.

IMG_8675

Antasha and her brother Jay in 1990.

Antasha was a child walking about or sitting and playing with her toys as I was totally engrossed in this popular section of the newspaper.  Maybe it was my youth (I was in my early 20s), but I didn’t consider that, soon enough, Antasha would be getting married. At that time, I didn’t imagine that Tony and I would be joining this special group of parents who had completed this rite of passage that has gone on for centuries!

6129FDFC-7ADF-4C6C-9607-D298CD9ED3EB

My basket full of newspapers announcing my daughter’s wedding!

The AJC Wedding Announcement

But in the blink of an eye, time has flown by and my Baby (she’ll always be my baby) is getting married. I went to my local Kroger this morning and bought up more than half of the copies.  I opened the newspaper to page E15 and saw that she and her fiancé, whom I affectionately nicknamed Jules, have taken their place on the pages of this ICONIC publication. And wow! The AJC was kind enough to place it in full color! Even better, her announcement is right next to the Dear Abby and Miss Manners columns! Nostalgia swept over me! I loved reading those columns and now Antasha’s announcement is next to it! Please click on this link to view the article.

Jules is reading his wedding announcement in On Common Ground.

On Common Ground News Wedding Announcement

A wonderful new African American owned publication was founded when Antasha was seven or eight years old. On Common Ground News publishes exceptional content weekly to benefit the entire metro Atlanta area. I was pleasantly surprised to see their print publication from this past Friday, January 10 which featured a beautifully designed and creative presentation of my daughter’s wedding announcement! I am so very grateful that they shared our great news in such a lovely way! Please click on this link to view the article.  http://ocgnews.com/royal-wedding-2020/?fbclid=IwAR31PiGMuxaN4CZ5zyBKJeCouTC6MeS6Gz3ANtSsmpcCUEVzIY1_Car7hDY

The Herald Newspaper Wedding Announcement

My husband and I were raised in Savannah, Georgia.  The Herald Newspaper is a BELOVED publication in the city. Weekly, they publish EXCEPTIONAL articles and announcements that the community loves! How nice of them to publish the wedding announcement of Antasha and Jules!  Please click on this link to view the digital article.  If you reside in Savannah, feel free to pick up a copy!  http://savannahherald.net/savannah-natives-to-host-royal-wedding-in-p15074-90.htm?fbclid=IwAR2PKr1RcEtI7Eqa_sHBlV8UpvxnMByVUKk_X20E89NC4xZNcCva2RrDTHk

Experiencing an Outpouring of Love from Everyone!

Tony, Antasha, Jules, and I, as well as our families, are simply amazed by the outpouring of love, encouragement, and support that we have received from so many people! We are blessed beyond measure and thank God for each of you! I will be posting to social media and blogging about this amazing experience as well as writing a seven-part wedding series for the 2020 Wedding Season! Feel free to follow me @LesliesLane as I will often post to social media in real time!  Also, I want to send a few shoutouts to some very special ladies!

Ida Kroell of Georgia Palms & Gardens – The Amazing Venue

https://www.georgiapalmsandgardens.com/

Antasha and I visited several prospective venues. She would ask me, “Mommy, what do you think?” I would tell her, “It’s really nice. But is this the place?” That is… until we went to visit Georgia Palms & Gardens. When I got out of the car and starting walking, I was just struck and had to stand in place. I just began turning around and looking in all directions.  I said, “Antasha, this is the place. It is absolutely beautiful.” This tranquil, rustic, upscale, all-inclusive wedding venue features 6.5 acres of beauty, two gazebos, an elegant outdoor ballroom, a regal B & B Inn, full-scale wedding planning and coordination, stylish décor, and so much more!

Ida handles everything from start to finish! You can select the package of your choice and let her take care of the rest! If you don’t have a wedding coordinator, she can include it in your package and will handle everything on the day of the wedding.  If you have a coordinator, she will work side by side with the person to make your vision a reality! I’ll be talking a lot more about this wonderful venue in the weeks to come! I don’t want to give away all of the magical surprises Ida and her exceptional team have in store for us!

Bernadette Birch of Over & B’yond Event Planning – The Wonderful Coordinator

https://www.overandbyondevents.com/

Bernadette is my sorority sister and she is so creative and kind. Her amazing boutique company creates blissful memories for the bride groom that can range from complete planning and curated services to month of or week of coordination. I’ll share more about Bernadette over the next several weeks as she goes over and beyond! Please stay tuned!

Special thanks to The Jewel Tone Innovation Squad! I’m going to introduce these lovely ladies to you during the month of the wedding! Thank you so very much for allowing me to express the joy in my heart! Have a great week!

Sincerely,

Leslie E. Royal

7 Tips on Self-Love and Selfless Love by Dr. Joyce Morley

Dr. Joyce Morley

Dr. Joyce Morley

  1. When you love on others, you free yourself to be you, without fears and without inhibitions, gaining more inner strength, inner peace, inner satisfaction, increased self-confidence, and increased self-esteem.
  2. Love is greater when it is used as a verb, showing action.The way you treat you through the actions you take is indicative of the way you not only treat others, but also indicative of the kind of treatment you expect and accept from others.
  3. Everything starts with you! It is important that you love you and love on you, not only on Valentine’s Day, but 365 days of the year, unconditionally and without boundaries. You deserve it!
  4. Loving on others through the use of your time and talents also allows you to have increased feelings of self-acceptance and self-love, self-worth, self-confidence, and self-fulfillment.
  5. Loving on others is more than providing material things; it’s sharing of your time. It’s about sharing YOU with others, through genuine acts of kindness, unconditionally!
  6. When you spend time with you at a spa, salon, massage therapist, or other self-focused engagement you will experience feelings of self-fulfillment, self-acceptance, and self-love. Your engagement in self-time can also foster inner peace, clarity in thoughts, clarity in feelings, feelings of empowerment, as well as feelings of total freedom.
  7. Loving you gives you permission to love others unconditionally, without clarifiers; not so much for what they do, but for who they are; a human being like you! …And the greatest of these is love!
