Alright now! Let me start by saying if you haven't read my review of Nikki Carpenter's book When God Said Yes click here to read it.
Nikki Carpenter is a phenomenal woman. She is the founder of Nikki and the City, a powerful lifestyle blog. She is also a lifestyle writer and her work has been featured in Essence, Jet, and other publications. She is the beautiful wife to artist Just Steve, a lyricist and musician.
Personally, I had been on edge waiting for this launch. Nikki and Steve carry a powerful testimony and I bubbled over with joy to read what God had put on Mrs. Nikki Carpenter's heart.
The night was epic. I'm still rejoicing at how God bless that entire night. The venue was beautiful; located in Chicago, Illinois at the City Point Loft. The beautiful Siren Faye Butcher of ATS Magazine did a wonderful job leading the book discussion.That dress is gorgeous! Here is another picture.
Nikki Carpenter's husband Steve A.K.A. "Just Steve" was the EMCEE of the night. One of the sweetest moments was Just Steve performing a special song called "Nikki" introducing his beautiful wife.
Cherish B rocked it out on Twitter, Instagram and Periscope covering the entire night.
Her pin-up hairstyle was giving all the life that night. So many people worked behind the scenes making this night super special and a beautiful success.
One of the many who made the night beautiful was Nikki's sister Brianna.
For each purchase of the book, guests received a pretty sweet Swag Bag full of goodies from Eden Body Works, Sweet Bloom Cupcakes, and Fashion Fair.
Speaking of sweets. Sweet Blooms Cupcake did a SUPERB job. Her desserts were simply divine. There was the right amount of sweetness and wonderful flavor in each succulent bite. Check out this spread of Lemon, Red Velvet, Strawberry Lemon and Chocolate cupcakes. She even surprised Nikki with a cake replica of her book. Yes, this night was full of "sweet" moments.
Simply epic! I pray you enjoyed this recap as much as I enjoyed attending.
