The Air Jordan “Season of Her” Launch Event

So last night I attended a really dope event, quick thanks to my friends Ashley and Ahryn for the invite and for working together to pull off this amazing launch. Once I received my invitation, I immediately sent a text to my bestfriend Allie, asked if she wanted to go and sent in our RSVP.

I’ll be honest, I’m not a sneaker head and I never have been. I may have a collection of like less than 10 pair, half are for workouts or old, and then a few are from my 10 year old son Pauly because we wear the same size. Years ago I could wear little Bryon’s (my now 16 year old) shoes, then he had a growth spurt and passed me so I was forced to transition to wearing Pauly’s shoes who is very clearly about to pass me too. See, my husband and kids are addicted to shoes. They have every shoe you could imagine, every release, every basketball player, I really can’t keep up and at this point I don’t think they can either! This is really why I don’t think it bothers them that I wear/wore their shoes because they wear them a few times and them put them away and then get more. Pauly did embarrass me one basketball game I came into the gym with his Lebron’s on and he screamed mom what are you doing lol, I quickly told him to simmer down his pregnant mom had on boots and needed to change and that was the only shoe in the car. He laughed it off but that’s the only time he’s said anything about sharing with his wonderful mother.  For this reason. I’m sure a few times a year my husband will make sure I have a shoe of my own so I don’t embarrass him and the kids with something old. It’s just not something I usually get for myself. I said all that to say, I thought going to this event would totally make me the “cool mom” LOL seriously!

So I arrived a few minutes before the event started at 7pm and there was already a great crowd. As I stated, the event was coordinated by my close friend Ashley Taylor, CEO of Elmnt13 and Ahryn Tolley of NEXT,  and if you know either of them, then you know it was super cute inside and the branding was impeccable! You literally felt the “Season of Her ” theme from the moment you walked in the door. There was a beautiful hedge wall with the launched Air Jordan shoes in each color. Throughout the store, there were multiple displays, each with a different color of released shoe on top of moss and flowers. There were vanilla frosted donuts with sprinkles infused with vodka, custom flavored ice cream the colors of the various shoes, and cookies that resembled the shoe itself all being passed my employees and served on the Jordan shoe box.  There was also a photo booth with custom props like the #SeasonOfHer sign, and shoe cutouts. There was and open bar with a drink for every color of the shoe that was released for example Ice Peach, Light Aqua Purple Earth. I promise you no detail was missed! I was so proud of my friends!

So the shoe that was being unveiled was the all new Air Jordan 1 Season of Her.  Quoted from the invitation, this shoe is “outfitted in premium leathers and satin fabrics,  in the best pastel colors of the season. The Air Jordan 1 SOH is the newest premium shoe designed with the goddess of the world in mind.” I’ll be honest the shoe was SUPER cute so much so, that I actually contemplated buying it at retail value of $160.00. After meeting a representative from Jordan, Orences Christian (pictured above with myself and owner of NEXT Rob Rosenthal) I was asked how did I feel about the shoe. I expressed how much I liked it and honestly stated due to the colors and material it wasn’t practical for an everyday tennis shoe. Like I told him, for women that have multiple pairs of shoes this is probably not be an issue, but for me (LOL) someone who would try to wear this every weekend to my kids sporting events and grocery shopping, that would be problematic. In the moment, I was like hmmmm I’m a mom of four, with a mortgage, car notes, tuition, sports fees etc, so let me be conscience of how I spend my money. Go figure, I ended up not getting them but did see a lot of women buying the shoe so I was glad people were supporting the brand.

In hindsight, I should’ve purchased the gold pair. After driving home I thought although I might not be able to wear them everyday, the gold and the rose gold color would be fairly neutral. When I think of my needs for shoes, I think the basics, white, black, gray, red.. and then other colors. The shoe that was released also came in purple, aqua, teal, peach, purple, but I could’ve made the gold and rose gold work on a regular basis. I don’t know if I’ll go back to get it, but this morning I did come up with a few outfits in my head. Don’t you hate when that happens?

All in all this was a dope event in Cleveland and I’m glad that I was invited.

  • So the one thing I refuse to do during #quarantine is gain the Corona 19! So I subscribed to @nulifefitnesscamp TV and I start my mornings with a workout. This morning, my husband @crewcamp_bo joined me!
.
.
We did a 45 minute cardio class with @mieshanulife and just when he was ready to quit she came through the TV lol literally listen to the video lol... this was almost the end of our workout in his defense 😂 and swipe for the Martin comparison lol
.
.
My husband and I have committed to pushing each other to stay fit (I even made him throw away his brand new apple pie) but it’s also kinda fun and another way to connect while we are home together. I do all of our healthy shopping and cooking but he joins me in the kitchen for a glass of red wine. Tomorrow we will also start @watermeloneggrolls @nike running challenge of 30 miles in April! .
.
What are you guys doing to stay fit? .

  • Last week I started an amazing new weight loss program and in the first week I lost 5lbs without stepping foot in the gym! What did I do? Simply change my eating habits and start using @profile_sanford ! #AD .
.

This program (which is backed by science and takes a DNA sample) was developed by physicians and researchers tasked with creating a healthy, safe, and personalized weight loss experience. In doing so I am paired with a Health Coach. She helps me create my weekly plan, set goals and pick my weekly products. We have weekly meetings (now calls) to talk about my progress and goals so I love the accountability that comes with this program.
.

Now that I'm shut in, I can get everything I need for the week delivered right to my door step! I can't wait to see my progress- especially since I've started working out. Check out my IG stories to see my week one results. Read more about @profile_sanford by clicking the link in my bio! Receive $100 off when you use the code: COURTNEY100

  • The Coronavirus hit #CourtneyCoversCleveland pretty hard! No events to host, no events to plan, no events to attend or promote. No new restaurants or bars to cover. A few contracts canceled or postponed and... my $1,500 MacBook Pro that I had less than a year Bryce spilled coffee on the day before my birthday and it never turned back on. No AppleCare and of course liquid damage isn’t includee in the manufacturers warranty. So let’s say the last few weeks of business have been rough...
.
.

In spite of it all... this picture is everything! I am beyond blessed to have such an amazing family- spending time with my kids all day every day has filled my heart. If you watch my stories you know we are having a good time being quarantined. I spend most of my days in the kitchen— literally all day lol cooking various meals- and playing games or learning with kids! My husband is missing because he was binge watching Billions in the other room lol .
This is just what I needed. Between my computer breaking, my migraines coming back- and all my friends telling me to slow down. This break from everything has been a gift in disguise. I hope you are enjoying being at home with your family as much as I am! What are you guys doing? How are you guys holding up? How’s your business? How many times have you been to the grocery store lol? .

That might’ve made him sad but this new OREO Shamrock McFlurry definitely made him happy! Lucky for us @McDonalds is celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Shamrock Shake (which I had) and for a limited time you can enjoy one of these two treats too! .
.
Not only that but for every Shamrock Shake sold, McDonald’s will donate $.25 back to one of my favorite charities @RMHC — it’s a double win! #McDonalds #ShamrockShake dotheShamrockShakeRMHC #CourtneyCoversCleveland #stpatricksday #greenshakes #mcflurry #oreomcflurry #sweettreats #afterschoolsnack
