Hey everyone! To celebrate fashion night out here in NYC, I attended Beautiful textures Curl Couture event. It was a long wait to get in but once we were inside, everything was awesome! The food was great, the drinks were well made and I got to meet and interact with some of my fav bloggers. I had a blast. Below are some pics I took of the event. Enjoy!

Hey guys!!!!!

     I finally took the plunge and decided to trim my hair.I've always been scared that whoever I'd let do it would get a little bit scissors happy and boom! I'd end up with a nice new bob hair cut.Anyways I finally threw caution to the wind in the hands of my cousin. She attends Empire Beauty School right here in Manhattan so when she offered to flat iron my hair, I gladly accepted with the added bonus of getting those tired ends of mines taken care of.

P.S. I've been natural for 2 and a half years and have managed to reach full Apl (Arm pit length)/Grazing BSL (Bra strap length)..Below are the results.

This was my hair right after a blow out

And lastly this was the final results!
I loved it!

My hair looked and felt better and I was quite happy with the way it turned out! This straight look only lasted about 4 days thanks to these rainy New York days.

Until next time :)

Darker than Brown Monthly "Natural Hair Meetup"

Hey Guys! Hope you all had a GREAT weekend. It's always a good weekend for me when I attend  Darker than Brown monthly natural hair meetup. It is a meetup group geared towards natural haired ladies who are looking to learn from one another through their hair journey. For those of you who may not be familiar, I am 100% natural and I love attending these events. This one is particular is held at Vapiano. It was my third time attending this meetup and I  had an absolute blast. The ladies were a pleasure to talk to and we all got goodie bags with full size products from this month's sponsor Soft n free "Nothing But" hair care line.
