This makeover isn’t for me but hopefully you will accept my request to do the makeover for my aunt. Her name is Wendy and she is one of my best friends. Over the past 2 years she has gotten laid off and had a new baby who is one now (she also has two older children). She inspires me with her persistence in trying to find a job of some sort, but you never see her sweat even though I know she is going through a personal struggle. I occasionally do her hair (nowhere near a hair stylist) because she doesn’t have the money and her guy pays the necessary bills so they can have a roof over their heads. She is down to earth, shy, and good people. This will make her day if she can just get pampered and feel like a refreshed woman.
Pleading for your consideration,
Sherese, but I like to be called Ashley!
Friday was a busy day for Ashley Marietta, who will host the Red Carpet for T.I.’s big birthday bash TONIGHT at a private location.
As soon as I notified Ashley that she was the winner, she dashed off to TAGS Boutique‘s 2nd location in Buckhead, where she picked out a special outfit to wear on the red carpet tonight.
The shopping spree was FREE — courtesy of TAGS Boutique co-owners Kandi Burress and Peaches Chin, who took the time to help Ashley select just the right outfit. Ashley, above center, is pictured with Peaches Chin, left, and TAGS II manager Yasmin.
TAGS Boutique II is located at 2140 Peachtree Road in the Brookwood Square next to Frank Ski’s restaurant. You can shop online at TAGSatl.com or at the TAGS Boutique at 4500 West Village Place SE #2003 in Smyrna. Special thanks Peaches and Kandi!
Sandrarose.com photographer Jasmine, of Exclusiveaccess.net, caught up with rap mogul Tip “T.I.” Harris at his recording studio last night.
Between signing copies of his latest book, Trouble & Triumph, and putting the finishing touches on his upcoming album, Trouble Man — T.I. was a busy man last night! But he still took the time to announce a winner to host the Sandrarose.com red carpet at his OFFICIAL birthday party hosted by Tameka Harris Saturday night!
Due to circumstances beyond our control, Alena 7 will not be available to host the red carpet. Therefore, Ashley Marietta will host the red carpet at T.I.’s OFFICIAL birthday bash tomorrow night! Congratulations Ashley!
