    Hey folks!! I wanted to share with my lovely Addicted2Candi.com readers, the new business I am working on. The Addicted Life is part of my whole ADDICTED branding. I've created it for the dope girls of the world, that enjoy rocking both tshirts and heels.

CANDI COVERAGE: The Launch Party For “The Girls of Blaze” Disc Collection By Puma x Solange Major Success In ATL

CANDI COVERAGE: The Launch Party For

    Last night I attended the official launch party at Epitome, for The Girls Of Blaze Disc Collection. The collection is under the sneaker brand PUMA with Solange as the Artistic Director.
    I've always been a fan of the PUMA brand and was excited to hear that Solange had joined the PUMA team. We all know that the kid sister of Beyonce' is super stylish and a creative monster. I've always felt PUMA was for the sneaker heads that like to take risk (non-hypebeast) and embrace the different.
    The Girls Of Blaze Disc Collection include 4 designs: Rainforest, Burlap Rainbow, Tire and Dolphins.
    Solange brought on 4 dope designers to bring heat to the PUMA brand for the ladies. Gerlan MarceL (not pictured), Hisham Akira Bharoocha and sisters Darlene and Lizzy Okpo. The laceless kick is a statement kick, from the design to the colors.
    The event it self was POPPING!!! A nice location with a diverse group of Atl finest in the building. Epitome carries exculsive pieces more like a lifestyle boutique. Great music, tasty drinks, and dope giveaways. I would definitely call this a successful launch event. Shout out to Karla and Scott from PUMA. They Rock!! Head inside to see a few more pictures.

GIRL WHAT!?!: Saving Our Daughters Charity Says It Did Not Receive Any Proceeds From Kenya Moore’s RHOA Charity Event

February 19, 2014 |  by  |  SHUTUPCANDI, SMDH, we need answers!!, WTF  |  No Comments  |  Share

    "DO IT FOR THE TV...I AIN'T GONNA DO IT"...LMAO. SMH...This is just.....smdh!
    Get into the story below via AJC
    Saving Our Daughters, a non-profit in Atlanta, released a statement late last night stating it did not endorse or organize Kenya Moore’s “Real Housewives of Atlanta” charity event on their behalf and have not in fact received a penny of whatever proceeds came from said event.
Here’s the official statement to its supporters from Benjamin, founder and CEO of Saving Our Daughters: To all of our sponsors, contributors and friends
    On February 16, 2014, Saving Our Daughters was mentioned on the episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta as being honored with a fundraiser on its behalf.
    Our charity was contacted by publicist April Love to get approval and give notice of this upcoming event. Much to our delight, we were indeed honored to be chosen. After all, one of our largest financial contributors, Mrs. NeNe Leakes who has been responsible for contributions in the thousands of dollars throughout the years, is a member of the cast. Days later, to our surprise Ms. Love did contact me and inform me that she had decided to terminate her company’s involvement with this event. At that point, Ms. Moore contacted me to continue moving forward with the event as purposed and planned. This call took place a day before the event was scheduled to take place. Upon seeing the event unfold on TV, it was noticed that Ms. Kenya Moore stated that she was giving this charitable event in honor of Mrs. Leakes, with Saving Our Daughters as the recipient of the proceeds from the charity event. Honorees at this point were switched without our knowledge, but again, we are appreciative of any and all support for the organization. Had we been made aware that this fundraising event was in honor of Mrs. Leakes, we certainly would have been present with the plaques and certificates of appreciation that we currently have to present to Mrs. Leakes for her outstanding efforts and support for Saving Our Daughters. This would have been the perfect opportunity for us to honor her, as well.
    We were not aware of this and it appears that Mrs. Leakes wasn’t aware either. The light in which Saving Our Daughters was depicted was less than favorable. The organization received several calls from other supporters about our involvement in this event. They were extremely disappointed and felt that the organization was being taken advantage of. We go on record by stating that we at Saving our Daughters have never and will not ever be involved in any drive where the exact purpose is not clear, stated or held to with only approved changes. We would not ever jeopardize our continuing support from our friends by being a part of what appears to have been tainted from the start.
    In closing, Ms. Kenya Moore stated that thousands of dollars were raised at this event. To protect the integrity of Saving Our Daughters, our records show that we did not receive any of the proceeds raised from Ms. Moore’s masquerade ball. However, we do appreciate the contribution we did receive of $500 for our annual Christmas doll drive for children with cancer.
