Cupcakes & Conversations Recap

Cupcakes and Conversations: Delaware

by Kiera Sweden


On Saturday, July 20th, I had the opportunity to attend Boss Up Magazine’s Social Event – Cupcakes and Conversations! This event took place in Wilmington, Delaware and was nothing short of amazing!

This event was hosted by Boss Up Magazine and sponsored by Tanisha Chambers! Tanisha Chambers provides positive representation to young black girls, through the books that she writes. Not only did this event have some great conversations, it also had a pool party attached, which was hosted by Flyy Girl Adventures! Flyy Girl Adventures is all about empowerment, travel, fun, and making sure you’re having nothing short of an amazing flyy experience!!

The main topic of this event was learning to befriend the balance of business and pleasure. After a very inspirational conversation, the group shifted over to a Fly Girl meet-up at the pool. During this eye-opening event, I stayed at the edge of my seat through the entire conversation.

It was so incredible how every woman present opened up about what their weaknesses were with entrepreneurship, as well as shared their strong suits. These women felt the warm embrace of an entire community, just by being there. Many of these ladies shared incredible resources and gems that they have learned over experiences, an it truly was a glorious sight to see.


There are so many takeaways that I’ve put in my bag, after hearing boundless wisdom at the amazing Cupcakes and Conversations event. After talking about everything from starting your own business, to learning that everyone even just as a person is a business and has a brand in itself – I truly feel that my life will.


The upmost important take away for me personally was hearing a female entrepreneur powerhouse tell me that it is okay to cut the rope, with individuals who don’t see the vision. You need a team beside you that not only understands where you come from, but who also can see where you’re going mentally.

This event was one for the books, but there will also be more coming up. Don’t miss out! The next Cupcakes and Conversations will be held in New York, NY on November 9th.

Hope to see you at the next conversation!

A Night To Remember

They say diamonds are a girl’s best friend, but LA’s hottest Celebrity Stylist, Shavon Wright, has something even better! Not only does she *S L A Y* looks of fierce beauty, she is now slaying wigs to add that fire to your beauty too!

All the way for Los Angeles, CA, Shavon is a Celebrity Hairstylist who provides nothing but the trendiest, and up-to- date hairstyles and braided styles. (Boom!) With her new wig line “Diamondz in the Ruff 5-Star Wig Experience,” she is providing you with many options for ANY look you desire!

Shavon started creating wigs to provide her clients versatility in their selection of various hairstyles. Not only is it convenient, it is quick, versatile, and more accessible. Furthermore, it gives her clients the option to properly treat their natural hair, if any damage was caused in the past. (Such a Boss!)



“The inspiration behind my wig line and hair show is to be a leader for my two daughters, and to be a positive role model for the youth growing up in the world. I believe it’s inspired entrepreneurs like myself and others, who pave the way for new business ventures. This results in more jobs within that community, as well as creative and new ideas that gives an individual the opportunity to lead other, and have more control over your success story and future.”



So you’re probably thinking that wigs are only for women right? Well not Shavon’s wig line! Her wig line is for men and women! Her wigs are also for those with cancer, nervous conditions, hair loss, and damaged hair. Her wig line comes in its virgin natural state, which is brown, and is available in the lengths of 10″-34″ inches. Shavon custom colors any wig by request of her client, and her wigs are available upon request via a purchasing client.

Not only does Shavon slay hair, she is now going to RIP THE RUNWAY!!! (Weeeerrrkkk!!) Shavon will be officially releasing her wig line in her very own hair show called, “A night with “Diamondz in the Ruff.”

The purpose of the hair show is to provide Shavon the opportunity to introduce herself as a professional Stylist and Entrepreneur, while also showcasing all her talent, hard work, and longevity within the hair industry. She also plans to conduct hands on questions, network with professional hair stylists, and just have fun doing what she loves to do.

So when and where will the hair show take place? We’re so glad you asked!! The “A night with “Diamondz in the Ruff” hair show will held in downtown LA at:

Shavon has some final words for our readers:

I would like to thank MYX Moscato and The Girls Cave LA for sponsoring my show. I will like to also give thanks to Boss Up Magazine for giving me the platform to share with readers the insight of my story and sharing my goals, of making wigs for children with cancer while traveling the world to help people feel beautiful and confident.
