Fox 45 News Feature – Monday Makeover

On September 28, 2015, Lenora Nail Colors was proudly featured on Fox 45 Baltimore for the popular Monday Makeover feature.  

Being featured on local television was a little stressful, but everything fell into place.  I practiced day and night to get it right…because you only get one shot.  No retakes! But I have to say, it was a true privilege and an honor to take part in this.  Everyone was so nice and truly professional from the front desk to the reporter Candace Dodd…who picked our ‘Drinks on Me’ nail polish.  She said she love the colors, so we are sure she will love it!

Check out the link below to watch us for our first debut.  Also, professional nail tech, Crystal T. of Unitas Nails helped in the second feature sharing nail trends.

Maryland Business Feature – Chic Couture Cakes – November 2015

couturecakesHello world!  Thanks so much for being patient, since it’s been a few weeks since I’ve written in my blog.  But now…I’M BACK!  This business feature is so exciting because I get a chance to meet business minded people who have positive goals.  That is one of the things that keep me going in my journey.

You will love this blog story if you love sweets! So, get ready to read this amazing story about a local business.

I met Sherron through her IG page of Chic Couture Cakes.  I was so amazed to see so many colorful and different  things she could bake for her customers.  She recalls, ‘For as long as I can remember, I have always had a love affair with cakes. My fondest childhood memories all center around cakes.’   Sherron loved baking with her grandmother so that she could lick the spoon and eat the sweet frosting.

This Marylander started her passion for baking in 2007 when she baked her very first Southern Red Velvet Cake. By 2009 custom fondant cakes were gaining popularity.  She and her husband at the time, watched the show “Ace of Cakes” which inspired them to attempt to create a custom fondant cake for his daughters’ 16th birthday.

When she was in college, she learned some great nail art techniques that helped her at that time.  Sherron is very artistically talented which makes it much easier to provide beautiful designs for her customers.  Five years later and hundreds of customs cakes and thousands of cupcakes later…she is still here!  She mentioned, ‘There were many times when I wanted to just quit.  But my sanity and passion to provide happiness to others through my creations keeps me going.’

This sole operator of the Chic Couture Cakes brand, is a single parent and currently works full time.  Her goal is to complete her baking and pastry arts degree at Stratford University.  Also, she wants to fulfill the dream of opening a custom cake storefront…I hope it’s in Maryland!

Check out her motto, “Sometimes you have to lose to win.”  I love that! Simple and true.

It was a pleasure meeting this young lady who is keeping her head up and moving forward in life.  She even offered me a little advice about networking with other fabulous local business owners!  We wish her much success.  I want everyone to try her lovely sweet desserts for your next special event!
