Almost 20,000 nauralistas and friends gathered in Prospect Park on July 21st  for the annual Curl Fest 2018. Curl Fest is the ultimate beauty festival for natural hair. I’ve never seen so many beautiful afros, bantu knots, curls, locs and braids in one day. Sponsors and vendors such as DevaCurl, Eden Body Works,  and Cream of Nature showcased tents selling products, doing live hair tutorials and demos, and hosting games and giveaways!

Mommy and Me Style: NYC Nights

Every once in a while I have to take my daughter with me to an evening event. I’ll make the exception if the event is relatively kid friendly and on the weekends. I want my daughter to be comfortable in all settings….weather she needs to introduce herself to an artist at his gallery opening, or to new kids at a birthday party. We have to have the social skills to handle it all!
