…Shantron (URBANROSE) and jealousCNenvy! Thanks again for your participation in this great contest! I wish you all could be winners!
Update: Unfortunately, our original winner, Alise, will not be able to travel to Atlanta to get her hair done by Shekinah. So an alternate winner was chosen.
Altanta Hawks power forward Josh Smith turns 27th on December 5th, and he wants one lucky Sandrarose.com reader to celebrate his birthday with him. Josh will give 2 free tickets for one lucky reader and a guest to attend the Hawks vs Denver Nuggets game on Dec. 5.
Then after the game, you and a guest will party with Josh at his birthday bash at a private location!
To win the Hawks tickets and passes to Josh’s private after party, simply leave a comment in this post explaining why you should be selected the winner!
Please READ the Contest Rules before you submit a comment.
Special thank you to Josh Smith, Grand Hustle Records, MusicBusinessPolitics, and the Atlanta Hawks!

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!
Once again, THANK YOU to all of my readers who submitted videos. They were all great! We will definitely do this again real soon, so don’t despair. You’re ALL winners in my book!
Special thank you to Mr. TIP! and Ms. Hannah Kang, General Manager of Grand Hustle Records!!
Update: Watch the winning video after the break!
The decision wasn’t easy, but after reading through the emails sent in by my readers, one email stood out apart from the rest. The winning essay was written by EJ Flemmon! EJ will receive a $300 AKOO gift card and an invite to Tip Harris‘ private birthday bash on Saturday.
But that’s not all. In addition to dressing EJ in a wardrobe by AKOO, T.I. also threw in a pair of Beats By Dr Dre Solo HD headphones! Click the link below to read EJ’s excellent winning essay!
Thank you to everyone who sent in essays!
