The Curly Girl Collective’s Collective Expressions Event

 Wow, what an amazing evening we had. I joined a slew of other natural haired ladies for a night of sharing our journeys, trading tips and talking products. So much positivity in one place, and you know that can sometimes be difficult with lots of ladies in one place.

Titi and Miko, owners of the Miss Jessie’s brand of salons and products were on hand and performed a live “Big Chop” on an eager model 1yr in to her transition.

Love this!
You know I had to take home a pair of earrings for myself.
Every natural knows, products become a BIG part of our new routines. Luckily there was a product Swapping station available to help us lighten the load under our sinks…And then trade it for more stuff!

And don’t forget the goodie bags! Miss Jessie’s was in full effect as an awesome sponsor and generous goodie bag contributor.
Also, I was very proud to have my statement on the “I love my hair because” board be chosen as the winner! I received a tshirt for my win, AND an additional gift pictured below, that I won from one of the raffle tickets I purchased. The gift basket featured products from Oyin Homeade and Pura Body Naturals. Can’t wait to try it all!

One lucky winner even walked away with Heutiful steamer (jealous much?).
