CurlyNikki, Tracee Ellis Ross & a ton of Curl girls

I had the privilege of joining what felt like millions of naturals, well known naturalista  CurlyNikki, and actress Tracee Ellis Ross at the Optimum Salon Haircare event last night. Let me just say the event was beautiful. CurlyNikki has done it again; another event with excellent an turn out.

As the space at 404 NYC was adorned with big fros and mini fros, naturals had the chance to mix and mingle with each other and talk hair, alongside their complimentary drinks. We also got the chance to learn more about the Optimum 6 in 1 miracle oil. Yes, a naturalistas dream products and seeing more than one other person in a room full of people with hair like theirs.

Tracee as she welcomed guest waiting on line. Them curls! That Dress!

Who said DJ’s couldn’t look stylish and play dope music. The music was on point!!! She was turning the tables to the beat of every naturals’ song in that place. I was loving every moment of it.

I support Black Angels over Tuskegee

As I mentioned in my review regarding the Curl Daze event, I told you of the many prizes I won. One of them was a pair of tickets to see the off Broadway play Black Angels over Tuskegee. I had heard many talks of Tuskegee and some of its Black Angels.

I would get into depth about the play but that would ruin it all wouldn’t it. Though I will tell you it was AMAZING. The story of the amazing men of Tuskegee was bold, courageous, strong, determined, and heart wrenching. I caught myself tearing up by how strong the messages of the play were.

Thanks to the ladies of Around the Way Curls and Asili Glam for this amazing winning.

I promise it is a MUST see. To purchase tickets head on over to BlackAngelsoverTuskegee.com.

Curly Daze!!!!!

A couple days ago I had the Curl Daze experience. Some of you may or may not have heard about this event, which was hosted by the beautiful ladies of Asili Glam and Around the Way Curls. If you were not in attendance at this event en you were definitely missing out. Well fear no more I’ll give you a little recap.

It was definitely a CURL DAZE!

The event took place at Stash Lounge, located in an awesome hideout in New York City. There were lots of curls friends to talk curls, product and cocktails. I would like to take this time to thank Diddy for sponsoring the event as well. We were all Cirocin’ it, thanks to the amazing DJ playing all my tunes. We can’t forget the giveaways; no natural hair event is complete without goodies.
