The Media Bee thoughts and opinions on what's happening on social media, music, T.V., in the lives of celebrities, and movies - current or otherwise.en-uscomcontactthemediabee@gmail.comhttp://themediabee.comTheRealMediaBeethemediabee715channel/UC81YrKCCTo0uF5FZJ1a88uwthemediabeeUU81YrKCCTo0uF5FZJ1a88uw00 Eikon Cosmetics CEO LaQuicia Charnell by mediabee7150, 8 Mar 2020 17:00 GMTEikon Cosmetics is hosting a hair, fashion, &amp; beauty expo in Camden, NJ on Saturday March 28th. The event will take place from 4-9 pm at 1840 S Broadway, Camden, NJ.You'll be able to see artists at work in their craft with live demonstrations throughout the event. CEO LaQuicia Charnell promises an exciting evening with make-up contests, hair battles, and a fashion show. Bringing this event to her hometown of Camden is important to her as she sees it as her way of giving back. LaQuicia spoke with The Media Bee about what inspired her to get as many beauty influencers as she could in one place. <strong>&nbsp;"This is the first time Camden has seen anything like this, usually we have to travel to Cherry Hill, NJ, a suburb just outside of Camden, or Philadelphia. I wanted to bring stylists, make-up artists, vendors, models, and designers under one roof for one night to network and meet other people in their field. I wanted to give people a platform to grow their clientele."</strong> &nbsp;With Eikon Cosmetics' first major event approaching we reflected on the origins of her beauty and body line. <strong>&nbsp;"I was always into fashion, as long as I can remember my mom turned dresses that were too short into headbands and earrings, I was always into fashion! I'm also a mentor of my mother's drill team Camden Sophisticated Sisters, and because we are on a budget, I was the make-up artist and hairstylist."</strong> As a young mother of a busy toddler, LaQuicia is surrounded by the strength of her village. Deciding to quit her nine to five and work on her passion was a family decision. Driven by the passion of developing organic products that are non animal tested, she began experimenting with formulas in her own kitchen. As creative as her ideas and business plan were, there were still things that she didn't know about developing your own cosmetics line or growing your own business. <strong> &nbsp;"We shouldn't just have to envision Kylie Jenner, I want them to envision Quicia." </strong> &nbsp;When she researched the details for how to manufacture products offsite, there wasn't a lot of information out there. When she tried reaching out to businesses already established, many times she was given the cold shoulder or straight up stone walled. She had to conduct a lot of self research which resulted in many trails and errors. This is why she makes it a point to answer questions that come her way, often time from complete strangers. Eikon Cosmetics is steadily building it's brand while making a way for others. <strong>&nbsp;"You want to start something, come talk to me, we can get you started, I want people to look at me and see that it's possible."</strong> <strong>&nbsp;Click on the link below for tickets to the Hair, Fashion, and Beauty Expo presented by Eikon Cosmetics </strong> <a href="" target="_blank"></a> &nbsp;Visit: <strong>&nbsp;Follow Laquicia Instagram</strong>: @laquiciacharnell @eikoncosmeticsllc156724Hair, Fashion, Model, Makeup, Stylist, Philly, Camden, Eikon Cosmetics, Beauty, Run Way, Modelblogs/3-2020/156724-hair-fashion-model--s.jpgMedia Machine- VooDoo Man S1 Ep 3 by mediabee7150, 31 Jul 2019 02:45 GMT<div data-testid="post_message" class="_5pbx userContent _3576 " data-ft="<a href="" target="_blank">Check out the latest episode in the Voodoo Man series from Kyle Ingram.

Flying Crust had their grand opening this month and the menu has your favorites along with some dishes that are fresh and new giving us a taste of southern flavor. Business partners Elsie Concepcion and Garis Eddington took their time perfecting the menu and by judging by the Grand Opening it was a hit! "We expected a large turn out but it turned out to be massive!" Says Concepcion about their Grand Opening. Elsie told me all about Flying Crust's humble beginnings and how they have no plans on stopping here. <strong>At the first glance of the menu you know your taste buds are in for a treat so I had to ask her about the southern flavor added to the corner pizza shop.</strong> One of our biggest sellers is one of our southern dishes the Cat Fish or Shrimp Po Boys. It's a sandwich that comes from Louisiana. A Po Boy is a sandwich that's meant to be shared it's about 7 inches long on a french bread with lettuce, tomato, and remoulade sauce. It's made with either breaded cat fish or you can go with the shrimp. It's made to be overflowing and just an overall messy meal. I have to give 100% credit for the variety of food on the menu my partner Garis Eddington who's the creator of the menu. I came in on the tale end when we decided to go brick and mortar. The business started in 2014 as a food truck in Philadelphia and it was thus past year when we decided that it was time to open up something local and we decided that Pennsauken was going to be it's first home. I always thought why not keep it home? Pennsauken is a really tight community and they really showed out for us. The biggest complaint was the wait time and that's because we had such an overwhelming show out. We appreciate everyone being patient with us. The community has been waiting for this since May but we were pushed back but they showed out at the Grand Opening. <strong> The Flying Crust even has it's own sauce. I tried, unsuccessfully to find out what's in it. </strong> It's a secret, Ha! It's definitely a secret, it's meant to go as a side sauce to our fish and shrimp platters but now people are asking for it on the side for the other dishes. They're using it for their fries, shrimp, it's all over the menu now! <strong>People, if you're wondering just how diverse this menu is, there's General Tso Chicken on this menu</strong> General Tso is on our pizza and it's one of our wing flavors. As far as wing flavors we have Garlic Parmesan, Cajun, even Chipotle! You're not going to get all of these flavors anywhere else. Usually it's just your mild, medium, and hot. We decided to have a large selection of flavors that crossed over to our Chicken Tenders as well. <strong>I asked Elsie how she felt being a young female business owner in today's climate and her plans on giving back to the community.</strong> It's amazing, aside from the tremendous support that I have from my business partner I also have two young children that I want them to see that I was able to do this. I want to build my kids up to know that they can have their own. Teaching and showing them that is a huge thing. It's also important to me that we actually give back to the community. When it came to we first touch bases with the local schools. We gave the kids first dibs on jobs. So we were able to employ some high school students from Pennsauken High and the Vocational schools so we're really happy to get them on board. <strong>Even though they're just getting their feet planted in Pennsauken I asked about any ideas for expanding?</strong> We're working on building a franchise and our next stop is Houston, Texas for September. We are targeting Camden,that's where I'm from and I definitely want to go back home with this. We're also looking at Atlanta, Georgia. <strong>As far as possibly incorporating some local dishes from those states she thinks Flying Crust has found their niche and there's no plans on switching it up.</strong> I think for right now we're sticking to what we got. Right now people are loving it, it's already different from anything we have around here. I think we have a winner!
