An event just for teen girls and moms is happening this weekend in South Side Bethlehem.
The Glam Squad's mission and purpose is to empower girls/women of all ages. The group's focus is on Body Image, Media, Hair and Makeup, Self-Care and Wellness, Fashion Do's and Don'ts. The genius behind the organization, my friend Rosalin, says the Glam Squad aims to create "a movement of Stylish, Strong, Secure Divas, one girl at time." Righteous!
The annual "No Boys Allowed" event is this Saturday, Octobe 29, 9 a.m.-4 p.m. at the Comfort Suites on E. Third Street. Some programs designed for both moms and daughters, including Fashion/Styling Basics, Age Appropriate Skincare and Makeup, Priority Setting, and Love and Limits. Others are just for moms, including topics like dealing with relational agression and bullying and How to Talk to Your Daughter About Sex. At the same time their daughters attend a session that encourages the girls to DREAM BIG, and to learn how to become financially savvy, and media literate.
The Anti Pageant begins at 6 p.m. featuring a healthy competition that showcases girls' originality, commitment to community service, public speaking, and more. Fathers, brothers and other supportive males are welcome to attend the Anti Pageant.
Tickets are $10, and a portion of each ticket for expo will benefit the YWCA of Bethlehem. Visit http://projectglamsquad.com/ for tickets and information.
