Happy Sunday Folks!! I am here with a treat for you! As many of you know, I LOVE hair flowers! My collection is endless, and when I was contacted by Fatima of Flower From Fatima, I was EXTREMELY excited! Owner and Designer Fatima Spencer Ms. Fatima Spencer is the proud Owner and Designer of Flowers From Fatima. She designs handmade hair flowers for young women, from chic hair clips to romantic flower headbands. They are ideal for natural hair. She has an amazing boutique on Etsy to showcase all of her beautiful designs for any budget! Even more amazing than the product, is her reason for creating it! Here is what she had to say! “Where there are flowers, there is life.” “Growing up, my father decided to pursue a family run program for the improvement of our neighborhood. Alone, my family and I transformed the neighborhood into a paradise. We…

As many of you know, I am a DIE-HARD CurlBOX supporter! Every since I could get on the (which like many of you took some time), I have faithfully been charged $20 a month and received an amazing curlBOX full of all kinds of delicious goodies for my hair! I’ve received 8 boxes (July to February), in addition to shopping the cB Black Friday Sale. Within that time I am proud to say that I have found soooooo many products that I LOVE. These are products that I will purchase after I run out vs. waiting on my next box to see what new items I will get, so… I canceled my subscription to curlBOX. I firmly believe that this company is about helping women of color try the best products out there for our hair, whether relaxed or natural. But, it is also about helping you find what works…

Hello everybody!! I trust that you all had a very happy Thanksgiving! I enjoyed spending the quality time with both side of my family under one roof! We played games, watched the game, ate, laughed, slept…it was wonderful. Anywho…this past weekend I had the pleasure of doing my first tutorial for my Thanksgiving hairstyle, the Twisted Bantu Knot-Out. I received so many good comments and so much feedback from this hairstyle. Everyone was asking how I did it and what I used. At the time, I didn’t think to make a video for it. Then, on Black Friday, I had the opportunity to attend the curlBOX Black Friday Sale. That sale was MONSTROUS!!! And I mean that. I received over 13 FULL-SIZED PRODUCTS plus samples all for the price of the monthly curlBOX – $20! It was at the event, where I receive even more comments from ladies at the event about…

So let me just start off my saying that this was a BLESSING!!!I got a message on instagram on this picture and it say to contact curlBOX about a shoot! I screamed! I really did. and the rest was history…. This past Sunday me, CharyJay, and Ebony were at Beya Salon Studios for the curlBox Holiday shoot for the December mimi mag! Call time 10 am! 9:45am – I arrive and struggle to figure out how to get into the building (mostly me), along with the videographer and his assistant. The we realize one door is locked and the other is not…guess which door I pulled on…. 10:00am – Ebony arrives….my goodness she’s pretty! Danielle (hair stylist) arrives – she my homie! 10:30am – Myleik arrives with Chary (she drips with swag) and the fun begins. Malika (make-up) arrives as well! She had on these black sequin pants that were…

So as some of you know, I had the opportunity to help with and attend Naturally Pretty! This event was hosted by Mae of Natural Chica and MUA Mimi J. These ladies did a great job hosting this event! There was great music from The Chase, Greg Banks, and Farah Lissa. There were several vendors including some of my personal favorites – Too Groovy, Kava Essence and Natural Resources Salon, just to name a few. I actually didn’t get to take many picture because I sang background with The Chase (Awesomeness!!!) and I was helping out behind the scenes! There was a make-up demonstration by none other than Alexandra Butler, hair demonstrations by April B. (She has styled Mae’s hair), and hair talk with the lovely ladies of Tress Talk ATL. There were some great giveaways, cupcakes, drinks, and SWAG BAGS! Everyone loves a good swag bag and there is…

So in my world wind of activities, I totally forgot to do a post about the P3 Lab event hosted by Mimi J., which was spectacular might I say! It was a tea party! I don’t think I’ve ever been to a tea party before – except for the ones with my stuffed animals….and I’m pretty sure that doesn’t count….  Anywho, on August 19, I dragged my bestie Tiffany to the P3 Beauty Tea at Studio Wed, to support another friend, Maeling aka Natural Chica!  She, Mimi J (Make-up Artist, P3 Lab), Alexandra Butler (Make-up Artist), and Mattie James of Mattieology (Fashion Blogger) co-host this lovely meet and greet/networking party for other local bloggers of similar trade!  We actually got to meet and talk with these lovely ladies.  There were finger foods, delicious mini cupcakes and candies, and the best part of all GREAT TEA, sponsored by Soren Tea!!  Most…
