2016

by christinamdick

2016 was a big year for Tiramisu For Breakfast and we’re so grateful to you all for being a part of it. This year, TFB became an official company and I had my first TV appearance and magazine feature. Here’s a summary of the year:

In January, I talked about my favorite products for Moisturizing dry skin. I still love these and have added some new things like First Aid Beauty’s Ultra Repair Cream.

Also, my friend Jevata and I hosted our first Inspiration Party. We invited the women in our lives to get together and ideas, favorite books, goals and encouragement. It was amazing.

I also competed in a gymnastics meet with Liz from I Heart Vegetables and some other gymnast friends.

April was a big month for business. TFB Agency won it’s first award for an influencer campaign we worked on for ElementsBeautyShop.com. This was also, when TFB Agency officially launched with this piece in Richmond Biz Sense and picked up out first new clients, Patient First and James River Air.

In May, I joined Jessica Noll (check her out on Instagram: @Jessica.Noll) on CBS 6’s Virginia This Morning to talk about Summer Beauty. You can watch the full segment here. I also helped host a shopping event at J. Crew to benefit Massey Cancer Center and introduced you all to the brand, The Organic Pharmacy.

In August, Dermatologist Suzanne Peck shared her skincare tips with us in the first Tiramisu For Breakfast Live Facebook Interview. Check out part one and part two.

In September, I chatted with local PR queen Pryor Green about skincare and makeup tips for sensitive skin. (she shared some great stuff!) Also, Katlyn Pierre  joined TFB as our first intern! She graduted in May (hire her!)

October was also the month my little brother got married. Him and his wife, Jennifer, got married at Bold Rock Cider in Nellysford, Virginia and everything was beautiful.

I talked about the inexpensive but fabulous dress I wore here.

I wrapped up the year with a gigantic gift guide that was hopefully helpful to all of you.  Please let me know what fun things you’d like to see on the blog in 2017 in the comments!

Share the love!
