Here's a quick recap of the event.
There were a lot of people and lots of beautiful natural hair everywhere. There was no shortage of vendors either, a product junkie's dream! The actual program of events started fairly late and I was a bit disappointed that some of the perks promised to the people who purchased VIP passes were unavailable (and no prior notice was given) but overall it was a good show.
It was hosted by Annalise Dayes from America's next top model. She had gorgeous hair and a bubbly, vibrant personality. She did a good job hosting. There was a live big chop, product and hairstyle demos and lots of stands to purchase accessories and products from.

The swag bag I received had a couple of full sized products in it and in addition, I purchased a few things from Entwine Couture. I've been dying to try their products but they aren't easy to find in the UK so I was very pleased.

Hello everyone! I know, I know... Where have I been? Well all in good time.
I'm currently on my way to London for the Woman in the Jungle natural hair and beauty show. I will be back later in the week with pictures and stories. Can't wait! If you're there and you see me, do come over and say hi :)

Chai. I remember the days when we used to post all day every day. Life has been interfering, other pursuits, the 9-5 struggle. I'd apologize for the lack of posts but we all know it's a gamble at this point. We love you all deeply and appreciate your seemingly endless patience with this erratic posting schedule.

I just got back from a week in Mexico where I tried my best to get as brown as I could. Somewhere during my last day, I decided that I was tired of my haircut and wanted to lower the top. I could have waited to get back to Brooklyn the next day and have my barber do it, but no, that wouldn't do. Fizz was totally against me randomly chopping off my own hair, but I dipped next door and borrowed a pair of scissors from the girl next door, then spent the next hour or two snipping away.
I forget how long my head is. It's like an egg, it's got this rising dome on top.
Anyway, I wasn't too keen on the cut but I figured it would grow out. When I got back to Brooklyn, it occurred to me that now was really the best time to dye my hair. I couldn't go too out there because I didn't want to shock everyone at my job by showing up with platinum hair. Sigh. If only.
A box of hair dye later and some messiness in my bathroom, and I had a new hair color. Which I love!! My skin is just browned enough and when I pair it with a bright lipstick, it's just fabulousness all around.
