Hangout with my gal pal & beauty mogul, Manna Kadar

1BBLoveHangout

My friend Manna is headed to New York for a whirlwind media tour and she is inviting all of you to join her in a Google Hangout hosted by Birchbox.  They are collaborating on a product called sheer glo shimmer lotion (I scored a bottle and can’t wait to try it)

Here are the deets on the hang out …

When:  Friday, 12/13 (it’s good luck) at 3pm EST.

Topics:  All things beauty

How we met … 

Last Holiday Season, I sent out an email to all of my Vanity Girl customers for the Holidays – and one Pro Customer responded with a really lovely email. Turns out she is a beauty entrepreneur herself and owns a very cool cosmetics line named Manna Kadar Cosmetics.

We decided to meet for lunch at Le Pain here in WeHo, and she brought me some of her goodies like her signature bronzer (as seen at some of the hottest celebrity gifting suites) and her yummy smelling lip glosses.   We hit it off immediately.  With our mutual love of Paris (she was born there, I was an expat there) and our penchant for boy bands and business … that was a lunch that went really long and has since spawned lots of great business opportunities and my recent guest speaking opportunity at FIDM where she teaches in the Beauty Dept.  (BTW, huge shout out to the girls of the FIDM beauty department – I swear – it was like finding my Tribe! I can’t wait to see what these ambitious young women  … and a few men … do in their future careers.)

Anyway – it’s just really cool when you meet other female entrepreneurs, especially in the beauty space, that are as generous and fun as Manna.  She has great products and is just simply – a really cool chick!!

Ciao for Now –

Maxine

Special Thanks to another cool female entrepreneur and numerologist extraordinaire, Nidhi Handa, because every LA Business Girl needs awesome advice & insight!
