Created to meet the needs of the lifestyle-centric social media enthusiast, lavish! will be held on December 10-11, 2010 at Mansion on Peachtree in Atlanta, GA.
The unconference style event is the first of its kind and geared toward those who utilize blogs, Facebook, Twitter and mobile media to network and further their interests in beauty, fashion, design, food & wine, entertainment and other general lifestyle topics.

Lavish! will feature results-focused education, dynamic keynote presentations and peer-to-peer networking that has been tailored for the lifestyle hobbyist and professional in social media.

Believe it or not, lavish! began as a mere tweet-up.  Yes.

The brainchild of veteran social media enthusiast, Shameeka Ayers (a.k.a. The Broke Socialite), lavish! was created as an alternative to the Mommy/Techie/Pundit social media scenes.  Much to their credit, the aforementioned communities organized themselves and are now forces to be reckoned with in the blogosphere.

Having attended several social media conferences and workshops, Shameeka noticed a void in the educational content and networking opportunities for bloggers who were thriving in traditional lifestyle categories:

•    Fashion and Beauty
•    Food and Wine
•    Shelter and Interiors
•    Travel and Leisure
•    Creative Arts
•    General Lifestyle

Through her blog,The Broke Socialite (www.thebrokesocialite.com), Shameeka Ayers dispenses lifestyle-centric tips, tricks and anecdotal advice which lend to living a fabulously austere and glorious life.

An avid social networker and one of the most influential Twitter users in Atlanta, The Broke Socialite, Shameeka Ayers, has been featured in The Atlanta Journal-Constitution and was a first runner-up in both the popular vote and the editors’ choice for the publication’s “Best of the Big A” Award (Category: Favorite Local Blogger). Shameeka was an invited speaker at BlogHer 09 and Blogalicious 09, women-centric conferences designed for bloggers. She is also a Path 2 Peace Ambassador, who assists Rwandan women with empowerment and economic development by promoting their crafts, including The O Bracelet featured in O Magazine and an AFLAC Ambassador, bringing awareness to Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta.

Founder of Life Branded, Andrea V. Smoak, will be a guest speaker.
