Gingerbread House fun!!!



A wonderful activity for a Queen this holiday season would be making gingerbread houses with children , whether it be in a class room, a church youth group, or even the Boys and Girls club! A simple phone call to the administration could grant you a enjoyable community appearance. Children love candy, they love hands on activities and it will result in a tasteful treat for everyone involved! This activity is fairly cheap if you can purchase the jumbo size bags of candy, a few containers of cake frosting and a few boxes of graham crackers. Its a guaranteed great time that we are certain the children will remember for years to come. Remember to take tons of pictures, wear your sash and have a great time!

Holiday Support letters!

During these tough economic times it can be very difficult and stressful preparing for a national competition, Despite the headaches , continue to develop new ideas of how to gain your community's support in your quest to become Miss Black USA 2008. This holiday season,when making your Christmas list ask Santa to bring you cash or gift cards. This will help you be able to begin purchasing your pageant week wardrobe, amongst the countless other items you will need during pageant week. Request gift cards from MAC or Claires ,as a delegate you will spend more money than expected on accessories and quality stage make-up. Another great idea is to send a Holiday letter to every one in your family along with family friends wishing them a happy holiday, and informing them that this holiday season you are seeking support in your pageant endeavors. If possible you should include a photograph of yourself with your crown and sash as well. Even if they are unable to contribute at this time they may be able to contribute before you depart for Nationals. Always keep in mind that the worst someone can say is no. In the words of our founder Ms. Karen Arrington "if you don't ask someone else will". Even in the worst situations it is just good to let people know you want and need this support both monetary and physically. Happy Holidays!!!

Welcome to the MBUSA Family

Welcome to the Miss Black USA Family
Miss Black Talented Teen California USA 2009
Brittney Williams!!
Have a wonderful time at the National competition,
We are certain you will make your state very proud!

No-Slip Grip!

As expected, every queen will be packing dozens of classy stilettos for pageant week, whether they be for her interview suit, or her opening number attire! No matter where or what she is doing every Queen desires to avoid the nightmare plunge on a slick floor in front of crowds and gasping on lookers. A helpful trick to keep your strut on the upside would be to use the sandpaper adhesives on the bottom of all your pageant shoes!
These shoes help prevent slipping on wet or slick floors. They are quick and easy to apply and most of all they will fit and work on every shoe size no matter if the shoes are new or old. You can easily purchase a pair of these mishap preventers at your local shoe store like Aldo or Bakers for around $5.00. Majority of the time when you purchase a pair of shoes at any retailer, they will have a brand of No-Slip grips for sale, and may be cheaper when purchasing a pair of shoes, therefore it is a good idea to keep that in mind when your out shopping for all your pageant pumps!!!






Kristen is on the Move!!

Kristen looking as Fabulous as ever

organization so well this Holiday Season!!!
