Thank you.

From the bottom of our hearts.

It’s been quite a year. For the world, and Make it Mariko. We’ve been so so endlessly thankful for our entire community, for having our backs, continuing to support us, send us referrals, and just being there as a positive energy as we continue to navigate through this continued “new normal” of life. And especially as we came out of a much needed sabbatical to redefine and recreate ourselves.

And now, in true Make it Mariko fashion, we want to celebrate it all.
we want to CELEBRATE LIFE.
Celebrate friendship.
Celebrate our amazing Clients.
Celebrate our Vendor Family. 
Celebrate the amazing bay area POC Creative community.

Join us for our 7-Year Anniversary Party and Gina Mariko’s Birthday on December 29th! We’re coming together for some of our favorite activities: Karaoke, DJs, Dancing, Signature Cocktails, and of course, FOOD.

Most definitely! Food & Drinks will be available for purchase at Victory Hall. Credit Card is accepted. We will have a specialty cocktail available and $1 of each specialty drink purchased will go towards Pinayista.

What To Wear?

Dress to impress for yourself.

So the party IS called the “Black & White AnniverSoiree” so we’d LOVE if you came in some black/white attire. But honestly….Do you, boo. Whether you want to rock your flyest black/white fit to celebrate our event theme, or just celebrate your beautiful self, come in whatever makes you feel like your best.

Don’t know about you, but we’ve really missed expressing ourselves through clothing! Here’s your chance. Best believe there will be photo opps!

Note from the Birthday Girl & Founder

Phew, it’s been a year: personally and professionally. Having started the year taking a 3 month sabbatical, then coming back to recreate Make it Mariko from a place of abundance, rehiring a new team, and continuing to ideate and grow. I’m SO thankful for you all.

For anyone who knows me, they know that symbolism means a lot to me. In Tarot, the number 7 is the CHARIOT. It can mean growth and movement, but also flow and fluidity. Travel and change are constant. It can mean working hard, but also moving with the flow of things. 

2022 was EVERYTHING like that. FLOW was my word of the year. I learned how to sit with myself in silence, in nothingness, and in reflection. It looked like a trip to Mexico to look deep into my depths and forgive myself and find myself again. It looked like moving back into the work in a healthy, creative, and abundant way. 

And now it looks like the movement of change and growth with a NEW TEAM 🙂 I’m so so excited about the future. And I’m so grateful for you all. 

Thank you always for your love and partnership. NOW LET’S PARTY!!!

<3 Gina Mariko
