Friday's Fabulous Flicks

This week's flicks features some lovely smiling faces at The Links, Incorporated 39th National Assembly.
The conference was held in National Harbor, Maryland and hosted a record number of "Connecting Links" (husbands of Links). My hubby was in attendance and having quite the good time with one of his buddy Connecting Links. 

Yours truly was on the move - from Las Vegas to National Harbor (and working both conferences). So I asked my Sister Links to share some their photos!

Congratulations to the new National President of The Links, Incorporated Dr. Glenda Newell Harris. She is the first medical doctor to head the organization, so you should expect to hear lots of health related programming and activities during her administration.



Congratulations to the new National Vice President Kimberly Jeffries Leonard (in yellow) (photographed with Yvonne Cowser Yancy). 



And, congratulations to the new National Chair of Nominating, Kimberly Mumby Green (photographed with her husband). 

Thanks to Susan Leigh for submitting this photo of the Washington, DC Chapter of The Links posing with Immediate Past National President Margo James Copeland (center from in the green suit).


Thank you to Faith Thomas (second from the left) for sharing this photo of her and other Sister Links after the Memorial Service. Other identified Sister Links include (from left to right) Leigh Adams Slaughter, Joyce Adams Slaughter, Joyve Mosso Stokes, & Alma Stokes. 


Congratulations to Dr. Dorothy Cowser Yancy (in green. She's a member of the Atlanta Links) on winning the National Services to Youth Award! This photo was submitted by her daughter. 
This photo is from the Civic Luncheon. Almost everyone wore statement hats to this event. 


A few cute photo of some members of the Bucks County, PA Chapter of The Links. 


Have a good weekend good people!

I'm implementing #31daysofsmiles next month!

Friday's Fabulous Flicks

This week's flicks features two internationally renown models (Joan Smalls and Malaika Firth) attending Vogue Paris Foundation's Inaugural Gala. The event was held in honor of the contemporary collections at Musee Galliera in Paris.


Ms. Smalls wearing a gown that we mere mortals 
should never attempt to pull off unless we have a model's figure. 


Ms. Firth is cool elegance in this ombre gown from Burberry Prorsum


On The Road...But Back Home Now!

I know some of you are like "What is going on with our girl?!" 

Yes, I've slacked a bit with posting recently. And, I am getting it from some readers!!

For example, one Diva Doll approached me (very kindly) at a social gathering and said, "I need you to write more on your blog." Her sentiments were echoed by others in an ear-shot.

Well, here's my excuse (I hope you like it!) 

I traveled close to 8000 miles in the month of June (primarily on flights). This does not account for train and car miles.



Yours truly is married, working on a PhD, serve two volunteer organizations in leadership positions, and is employed full-time.

My Tumi luggage is jacked up (thanks US Airways!) and I haven't had the time to get it repaired :-(

I'm blessed but also kinda stressed too.

Unfortunately, my blog has slipped through the proverbial cracks in terms of my attention.

Many thanks to those of you who checked in on me. I rarely reply to Facebook messages so feel free to send emails to theblacksocialite@gmail.com if you have something important to share.

I'll try to get better with posting - but sometimes the real world outranks the virtual world.

You know what I mean...
