Atlanta, GA was a blast early in April, 2015!  I was a featured panelist at “It’s All About the Curls Meet ‘n Greet” hosted by YouTube’s DivaDeb! I enjoyed the World Natural Hair Show with my bestie Tisha, sissypooh, SheRea (mythriftedcloset on YouTube), and of course, the HUSBAND! ♥ I met Toni and Drew Daley, KiKi of Mahogany Knots on YouTube, got interviewed by Shea Moisture, saw my boos Obia of OBIA Naturals, April of FCA Naturals, Jonna of Naturally Glam and a host of other wonderful peeps! I also got to hang with my favorite ever, Diane Bailey! We rounded out the weekend at the inaugural Loux Experience Banquet and a natural hair brunch with awesome naturals!

In May of 2015, I hosted Fayetteville’s very first International Natural Hair Meetup Day (INHMD).  It was amazing with wonderful vendors, good food, laughs and a host of beautiful naturals!! YouTube personality “MyThriftedCloset” (SheRea del sol) and “The Lupie Chick (Altonia Dugar) were featured speakers.  We had amazing vendors and lively Design Essentials team!

Fall events ended 2015 with a bang! I was invited to the exclusive blogger mixer and networking event at the Ultimate Brown Beauty Retreat with Rachel O Beauty and MsVaughnTV from YouTube. Then I headed to New York to the Masters Pioneer Dinner sponsored by Shea Moisture and hosted by my “natural hair mama” Diane Bailey! I thoroughly enjoyed speaking at the dinner as well as meeting and getting to know some of the most amazing entrepreneurs in the natural hair industry. This trip is something I will never forget and I am honored to have been invited. I ended the year as a featured panelist at the “Own It” event by Kim of Naturally Fashionable with lovely women celebrating their beauty and personal style.

2015 was amazing!! 2016 will be even better!! Stay tuned for events details!! ♥
