Curls & Cocktails

Curls, girls and cocktails filled Sadie Lounge in Hollywood for the Curly Cartel‘s second event.

The celebration was hot, literally! Despite the heat, I relished in the merriment as we honored celebrity natural hair stylists Dr. Kari Williams, Felicia LeatherwoodAfrican Creature and Adele Supreme.

It is always a pleasure to mingle with women sharing and embracing natural beauty. I met new curlfriends and connected with fellow LA Curly Girls. Good times!

Growing up, my definition of beauty was heavily influenced by media standards. I failed to embrace the differences that make us unique. My ignorance helped to create a perception that dictated my behavior and interactions.

Today, I am proud to celebrate images and attributes that I found embarrassing and/or bashed. Embracing my own natural beauty has changed my perspective and is one of the best choices I have ever made.

Honored to be part of this amazing movement, I love opportunities to connect with other amazing women redefining beauty.

On Thursday night, natural hair and beauty bloggers/editors gathered at the upscale Sofitel Los Angeles for a beauty chat hosted by MegaGrowth and Ebony.com. I had a blast chatting about hair care, makeup, fitness and philanthropy with those in attendance.

Guests enjoyed delicious gourmet hors d’ oeuvres, complimentary drinks and received MegaGrowth swags bags. The summer inspired beach totes included three full-sized products that smell yummy. Look out for a review.
