Dr. Wright Jones. M.D

Dr. Wright Jones, M.D., star of Lifetime’s original series “Atlanta Plastic”, and board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and the American Board of Surgery, opened his practice in Atlanta, GA in the affluent Buckhead Community. Dr. Wright Jones, M.D. has trained under some of the best plastic surgeons in the industry including the world renown Dr. Constantino Mendieta, a national authority on gluteal augmentation and body contouring.

Dr. Jones states, “I believe in safe plastic surgery that yields a natural and beautiful outcome. My desire is to form a long-term physician-patient relationship built on trust and outstanding results. The Doc says ” I got interested in the show after I was contacted by the production company and after speaking with them they didn’t want any of my personal life involved and they wanted to showcase my professional talents. It seemed like they were doing something that’s never been done before; featuring an all African-American cast of surgeons in the field of plastic surgery. They also let us spearhead the dialogue of body image in African-Americans.” Amongst tonight’s guests were Dr. Ron from the Doctors, Genise Shelton of Married to Medicine just to name a few.Special thanks to PR Primas and Dr. Jones for allowing us into his office to get a sneak peek at the Doc’s office !

Today is the lovely Rasheeda’s birthday who casts on the reality television series “Love and Hip Hop Atlanta”. Rasheeda has been making moves with her beauty and clothing line recently and the results are very evident. I have not watched the show recently but last I checked she was doing one hell of a job juggling her youngest son, her new business, and her marriage of 15 years with Kirk Frost. I wonder how things are holding up?

Atlanta PAY ATTENTION!!!!

Queen U is coming to your city and Ms. Julia came to slay!

Her intention is not to slay only in fashion as she does in the pic below; nope, her purpose is greater and BIGGER than fashion, she came to FREE YOUR MINDS!

So who is this innovative powerhouse diva that dares to get ya’ll in formation?

Her name is  Ms. Julia Sewell.

She is the Chairwoman and CEO of Sewell Speaks LLC, a company specializing in the arts of motivation, training and the development of individuals with whom she comes in contact with ,she is also the Founder of Queen U!

Ms. Sewell has spoken at more than 200 conferences and events and has worked with various prominent entities state-wide such as, St.Paul and New York public school districts, Minneapolis Park Board, BET, America’s Promise Alliance, City Year, Special Olympics, and Youth Leaders International, just to name a few. Her most recent feat was the launching of the Queen U initiative with her vision being the complete and world changing evolving of women globally. When asked what was the difference between Queen U and other women’s empowerment organizations she responded with this,  “Queen U will revolutionize the world, because we are empowering women to be their highest selves by first modeling it in our lives. I strongly believe that when you empower the women, you empower the man, you empower the child, thus a nation rises.”

Queen U is the brain child of Ms. Sewell and was formed with the vision of empowering, teaching and helping women around the world to find their happiness and life success by reaching into themselves and utilizing the talents and gifts that they possess to truly maximize their best potential, not only for themselves but also so that their contributions to the world would ultimately assist in making it a “better” place, “Queen U will be that aid to guide us in elevating our nation by gathering queens with the purpose of unification and manifestation of our best selves. When we are at our best, we have more to offer around us” Sewell said.

Earlier this year, Ms. Sewell advertised with the online blogging site The Shaderoom for an Ambassador search to progress her initiative. Since then, Queen U is able to boast 33 women ambassadors worldwide with the intent to double that within the next few months.

In a series of monthly conferences scheduled for each calendar month this year around the world, Queen U’s conference is scheduled for July 16th this month in Atlanta. Queen ambassador Jaya Cain, alongside Queen U founder Julia Sewell, will host a women’s empowerment conference under the theme “Knowledge of Self”. This workshop styled conference will engage participants in a series of self analysis activities that aim to teach women how to positively, cognitively and smartly assess their life’s choices to discover whether or not they are living their best lives.Women are expected to walk away with a  wealth of new found networks, a sense of empowerment and a new drive to maximize the best that life has to offer to them and to embody that “can do” attitude.

Sunday May 23, marked the first WNBA Atlanta Dream home game since the new season has begun.

This wasn’t an easy task as the Chicago Sky has starter 6’5 Elena Delle Donne, WNBA’s MVP leading the team who actually gave the Atlanta Dream a good run for it. READ MORE
