Dark and Lovely Welcome Soiree

In NOLA I had the pleasure of attending the Dark and Lovely Bloggers Welcome Soiree. This was one of the many kickoffs to Essence Festival 2016. The weather was hot, but the breeze was just right. I knew exactly what to wear.

While at the soiree I had the pleasure of talking to my natural hair guru, author, my friend in my head Dr. Nikki Walton better known as Curly Nikki .She is just as lovely online and on tv as she is in person. I could have talked to her for hours. The funniest part is my husband did not want to attend (he didn’t want to interrupt), but both our husbands talked and connected the entire time! Curly Nikki was such encouraging and a true #GirlBOSS. She was generous enough to take a picture with me and my husband.


Curly Nikki signed this book for ME!
