Hello Friends and Happy Monday!

Chasing the Dream Entrepreneurship Camp sponsored by The Money School of Delaware provided youngsters between the ages of 9-13, an opportunity to learn the basics of starting a business.  Last Thursday they were given the tools and a venue to showcase what they had learned.

A miniature Marketplace was set up in Rodney Square in Wilmington where the campers had an opportunity to sell their products, which included body scrubs, hand crafted jewelry, sunglasses, candy, plants, lemonade, popcorn, metal sculptures even hourly math tutoring sessions.

These young entrepreneurs obviously also learned another very important lesson, the value of customer satisfaction.  They greeted each passerby with a smile and eagerly answered questions about their products.

There was a heavy downpour on and off during the day but that did not stop people from coming out to support.  There was a steady stream of customers as well as WDEL Radio personality, Amy Cherry and a 6ABC News cameraman.

I was truly impressed with not only the products these entrepreneurs had created, but how each of their personalities and positive attitudes showed brightly despite the dark clouds looming overhead.

Kudos to The Money School of Delaware for supporting the youth of today with their futures of tomorrow.

Hello Friends and Happy Ju’last day in July!

I hope it’s just a beautiful where you are as it is here because we have been experiencing wonderful weather this week. Tomorrow calls for a little rain but the rest of the week and into the weekend will be simply gorgeous! I have two blogging assignments scheduled for Thursday, one is a meeting to discuss doing a review for the Grand Opening of the Westown Movie Theater coming to Middletown this fall.  Then mid-morning I will be heading to Wilmington to take pictures and interview young entrepreneurs who have completed “The Chasing The Dream Entrepreneurship Camp” sponsored by The Money School of Delaware.

I have taken the day off from work, however, if you’re working tomorrow in Wilmington, please stop by Rodney Square between 11 and 1 for the “Chasing The Dream Entrepreneurship Marketplace”.  Students learned about starting businesses and now they have an opportunity and tools to run those businesses so please come out and support (don’t forget to bring an umbrella).

The weather could stay like this for the rest of the year and I don’t think anyone would mind a day of rain!

“eShakti-We Design – You Customize”

I am doing this review for eShakti, an international fashion design company in India that sells ready-to-wear and customized women’s clothing.  eShakti specializes in affordable custom made clothing for women in sizes 0-36W.  They have been featured in Vogue, Glamour and O Magazines and now include design teams in New York and California.   In an effort to reach a wider audience they have contacted several bloggers including myself to review an item of clothing from their stock.

I chose this ready-to-wear blue stripe dress and am not only in love with the color but also in how it fits my body frame.  It is an all-season knit dress, so today I added a thrifted denim bolero jacket and black patent leather pumps.

The scoop neck, cap sleeves and side zipper has it fitting me to a “T”, it’s a very nice cut.  After wearing, I machine washed on delicate and hung to dry with no problems, it kept it’s shape and only needs a cool iron to remove the wrinkles.
