On Tuesday, September 23rd, Demetria Lucas, author, relationship expert and founder of the award winning blog, celebrated the release of her highly-anticipated second book, “Don’t Waste Your Pretty: The Go-To Guide for Making Smarter Decisions in Life and Love” at 18th Street Lounge in her hometown of Washington, D.C.

Hundreds of guests joined the life-coach for an intimate Q&A and book signing, while sipping on signature cocktails such as “Belles and Bubbles”, “Belle-Tini” and “Don’t Waste Your Pretty.”
In front of a packed house, moderator Helena Andrews, Washington Post journalist spoke with Demetria on her career journey, new book and some of her most memorable Ask.Fm questions. After their chat, Helena opened up the floor for questions where attendees asked for relationship advice and also tips on building your brand.
