Now you can bet that our week will be AMAZING if we get an opportunity to stop by the Fox 8 studio and share our Sociably Yours tips. With Mardi Gras being today, we stopped by yesterday to share a few easy tips for a celebration at home.
Celebrated around the world annually, Mardi Gras is a Carnival celebration also referred to as Fat Tuesday, reflecting the practice of eating richer fatty foods before the season of Lent. Sociably Yours is here with some easy ways to create your own Mardi Gras celebration.
We featured Bourbon Street Chicken, Mardi Gras Pasta Salad, King Cake Cupcakes and of course a signature Carnival Cocktail!
Mardi Gras Pasta Salad
1 pound of fusilli pasta
½ cup of shredded purple cabbage
1 cup whole kernel corn
2 tablespoons butter
½ cup finely chopped green onions
1 cup of mayonnaise
1 teaspoon Dijon-style mustard
Salt and pepper to taste
Cook the pasta in boiling water according to package directions. Drain thoroughly and place in a large mixing bowl.
In a skillet, melt the butter and sauté the corn for two or three minutes. Add the corn, cabbage and green onions to the pasta. Add the mayonnaise, a little at a time and toss to coat evenly. Add the mustard, salt and pepper. Toss gently.
Carnival Cocktail (Mocktail)

Every season, every celebration, we are Sociably Yours! We LOVE great events and we recently had the opportunity to put one together feauturing our signature cosmetic line, the PS Collection by Sociably Yours.
Beauty & Bellini's was held on Saturday, February 11 in the beautiful Loft of the W on Elm in downtown Greensboro. A newer edition to the downtown area, the W on Elm is home to amazing views that served as a gorgeous backdrop to our signature event. We worked closely with the staff to provide a signature brunch menu as well as a signature cocktail-The Bellini. We offered two flavors of our signature cocktail, peach and raspberry. Guests were allowed to drink, dine and be divas as they shopped the mid-morning away.
When designing the concept of the event, we reached out to our stationery designer for the ideal logo to help brand the event. It was important for us to define this event as a way of life that should be embraced by all women daily. We then reached out to female entrepreneurs to be a part of our beauty movement, lol. As a Pop Up Shop style event, we feautured some amazing vendors while creating the ultimate beauty event for a ladies morning out. Our vendors were able to provide you with your complete look to make you look and feel beautiful. From skin care by independent MaryKay consultant Taunya Monroe, to fashion from Outclassed Boutique to accessories from Butterfly Button's. Your completed look would definately include a signature lip color from the PS Collection by Sociably Yours.
The Lipstick Lounge created by Sociably Yours feautured the newest colors of the PS Collection-Mink Lipstick. Mink Lipstick is VIP (Very Intense Pigmented) colors created exclusively for the PS Collection by Sociably Yours by our designer Araneetae Guy. The two colors-Crush on You (red) and Spellbound (purple) are already consumer favorite. The intensity of the color, the long staying and matte look of the Mink lip colors are just some reasons why it is a best seller.
The PS Collection by Sociably Yours is highly successful due to events like this, where we can be upclose and intimate and receive feedback so that we can continue to create attention garnering colors. A special thank you to the vendors who participated-Butterfly Buttons, Outclassed Boutique, and Taunya Monroe of MaryKay. Thank you to the staff of the W on Elm. A HUGE thank you to everyone who attended the Beauty & Bellini's event and please stay tuned to find out the date and location of the next event.

We are fans of football. So while our team is not playing in the big game, we along with millions of others will be tuned in to see who will be the winner.
With an event so huge, we were honored to be able to stop by our favorite local news station and give some great entertaining tips.
We focused on creating a match up with our dishes by presenting some of the fan favorite foods from both teams-Atlanta Falcons and New England Patriots. The fun we had bringing things together and learning things in the process.
Our main dish featured Kickin Ckicken Wings and Boston Baked Beans with Maple Glazed Bacon. The highlight of this segment was a fan food favorite by the station's very own Meteorolgist Van Denton, Bacon Wrapped Pretzels! We also shared our Sideline Sweets and our very own Sociably Yours Halftime Punch.
Super Bowl Parties have come a long way since the days of pizza and footlong sandwiches. No matter what you plan on serving as long as you have good food and enjoy your fellowship, you will have an evening of fun!
