Up Next: Fro Fashion Week....

Happy Friday everyone!

Next week around this time my bags will be packed and ready to fly to Atlanta for the fall edition of 'Fro Fashion Week.  This weekend I will be in and out of malls looking for a few ensembles for the weekends festivities and of course searching the web for inspirations for my hair (if you all have any ideas please let me know...seriously)!

It's not too late to purchase tickets, so if you are interested in the complete schedule of events click HERE.  I am most looking forward to the Penthouse Party:

and the Fro Fashion Show:

I am also looking forward to" Protective Styling 101" and the  "How to: Haute Head Scarves" workshops because with winter quickly approaching I need as many styling options in my natural hair toolkit as possible. I hope to see some of you there! For those of you who can't make it I will share as much information as I can with you guys.

Natural's Night Out meets Fashion's Night Out...the ReCap

A few Thursday's ago  I was invited to attend Naturals Night Out: A Curly Fashion Fix at Pranna. It had been a while since I have attended a natural hair event so I was eager to not only go, but have a  chance to mingle with my fellow naturals. Rockie and  I arrived at the venue at about 8pm. Mind you, this was almost an hour after the event was scheduled to begin and the venue was PACKED! There were naturals the bathroom, in the waiting area, and in the lounge. I knew this was a sold out event but I must say I was taken aback by the sheer number of ladies who were in attendance.  As I made my way through the crowd I found out that there were Miss Jessie's goody bags floating around but all of the bags I came across were already claimed, sadly. I did however manage to snag a Bee Mine Bee Hold Curly Butter sample from their publicist. I was grateful (thanks, girl) because I have always wanted to try Bee Mine Products but have not been committed enough to order them online. Despite being shocked by the crowd and slightly disappointed about the goody bags I liked the vibe of the event. Naturals were everywhere conversing with one another,  the music was good (and was being spun by a natural dj, DJ S. Whit), and there were natural hair bloggers and vloggers in attendance. This wasn't so much a meet and greet as it was a celebration of natural hair.

I was also able to learn about some upcoming Natural Hair events. For example, I met Mirielle of who is in the planning stages of the next round of America's Next Natural Hair Model contest and a gentleman by the name of Anthony who is working on a natural hair documentary.

In addition to  the fabulous hairstyles, interesting people, and the Friday night vibe, there was a variety of finger foods available. I know, I know, that comment came out of left field BUT I  have to mention the food because this is something I thought was missing from this summers Naturals Night Out event. My eyes lit up as I saw the trays of treats making its way through the crowd. Snagging a sample however was a bit of a challenge. I was able to taste the sweet potato fries and some type of chicken wrap, which were both delish. I love the fact that there was food available at this event, next time I would consider serving it in a variety of locations so that more people would be able to enjoy the appetizers.

All in all I had a good time and look forward to the next Chic and Kinky event!
