New Year, New Resolutions!

New Years 2014 Props Since there is only one more day until New Years Eve...Get a head start & make a list of your resolutions that you want to set in 2014! Whether your getting ready to host your own new years eve party or attending someone else's make sure to take time to reflect on the good, the bad and things you want to improve from this year! Here are some of mine

In 2014 I resolve to:

1. Spend more time with my loved ones! Life is short and 2013 was a big year for me & Favored by Yodit Events! I found myself spending more time on my computer and the phone doing work than time for my family & friends.

2. Be healthy! No explanation needed for this one. Its always good to exercise more and eat healthy.

3. Take a little me time every day! Whether its 30 mins of meditation, a facial or a mask at home, or do a little shopping just to give myself some love :)

#FavoredFriday Celebrate the Holidays With Ethiopian Inspired Holiday Cards by Designer Maro Haile

Desta Holiday Cards  







This holiday season get creative & cultured with your greeting cards and gifts with Deseta!

Deseta, a new collection of multicultral cards, tote bags, and more is spreading the love this holiday season.     Deseta [deh-seh-ta]: a noun meaning happiness; how you feel when something puts a smile on your face. from Amharic, one of the many languages spoken in Ethiopia. also spelled/pronounced desta.

As an event planner and "go to girl" for entertaining, Im always looking for new vendors to utilize for my clients and myself so when I came across Designer, Mariam-Sena (Maro) Haile, a Brooklyn-based artist and owner of the e-commerce website, I knew I had to share her amazing work with others.

Desta Tis the Season

In an interview with TADIAS, Mariam tells us a little bit of her background being born in Addis Ababa and growing up in Minnesota before settling in New York City in 2000. “I was born in Ethiopia, raised in a tiny town in the Midwest, and now have Brooklyn planted deep in my heart,” she said. “My target market ranges from shoppers who appreciate the unique, non-traditional aesthetic found in gift shops and boutiques to young families and friends of young families looking for printed accessories for their children.” Maro’s aim is to reach as diverse an audience as her background.

Check out some more of her designs below:
