Cool Site: Share any event like never before!

Whether it’s a fundraiser, workplace happy hour or maybe a baby shower your throwing for someone there’s a must have site you need! I checked in with some ladies trying out the site They say it’s making their events mobile in a matter of seconds! Sharing the 411 has never been easier. lets you create a mobile app version of the entire event in just seconds. Log in, add event info and click on publish, thats it!

“No more friends calling and asking for turn by turn directions or numerous text messages to different phones. Kojami brings everything we need for any family or friends events to one place and on my mobiile phone with photos to share and enjoy” says Angela E, from South Orange New Jersey.

Pamela in Odenton Maryland says “With the instant RSVP feature I know how many people are coming, when they’re coming and if they’re on their way. And I check all this using my IPhone or IPAD. This helps me plan better for our family events leading to the event day”

Antonice Strickland, who just moved in from Detroit Michigan uses it to plan girls night out with her sorority sisters. She loves sharing photos from the past before everyone meets up! She says “It is so easy to use from my computer or tablet!”

We’ve had success with one of our events too. Last year.. it was great for the DC Newsbabes Bash for Breast Cancer. We posted past pictures and video, directions and ticket sales all in one place! People loved it!
What’s ahead… there’s a new IPhone, IPAD and Android app coming with many more features. For now, go to when planning the next event!

Powerful Makeover: Everyday Woman to Superhero

Local makeup artist Nour Kazoun, is making everyday women in DC into superheroes! She explains how DC is a pretty conservative place and so her mission is to bring the level of artistry found inNY and other fashion capitals to DC. She picked these women because they are the DC woman – and DC women have ambition, and drive on its own is a super power so why not create our own super heroes that live in the Capital of the world?!

heck out these ‘wonder women!’… For more info about Nour Kazoun’s work, check out Made.Up.Art on facebook HERE! Photography by : Mykl Anthony, Hair executed by : Elegant Hair by Giselle, Character concept and Makeup by MadeUpArt Makeup by Nour.



Nour did my make up for a magazine shoot.. and did this in 15 minutes before the Newsbabes Bash! I told her “Make me J. Lo” ha!
