Next week I’m headed down to Orlando, Florida with the NaturallyCurly fam for the 2nd Annual Curly Pool Party! The novelty of swimming sans worry never wears off and I love taking the opportunity to splish and splash with my fellow naturalistas! Can you imagine a better way to take a dip and ring in the summer time than with expert stylists standing by pool side to help you with your hair as you get out of the pool? I certainly cannot.
This year’s Pool Party sponsors are some of my favorite curly brands including Shea Moisture, Ouidad, My DNA, Amika and UR Curly. All of them will have their own cabanas surrounding the pool where they’ll be doing styling demos on models as well as attendees. Meanwhile, Cass will be zipping around meeting the Floridian naturals, working with the Texture Squad (our amazing group of volunteers), and cannon balling into the pool. WATCH OUT FOR MY SPLASHES, PEOPLE! I kid, I kid. I will probably just be perfecting my Leisure Dive****.
But only maybe because what they don't tell you is that Leisure Diving is only belly flopping on your side. The picture looks cool, but it's a tad painful after a few times.
If you’re in Florida (or somewhere close enough where a flight or road trip makes sense), you should most definitely come join in on the festivities–after all it’s FREE and I would just be oh-so delighted to meet you! The 2011 Pool Party was pretty damn spectacular and this second serving promises to take it to the next level! If you’re interested in coming, be sure to RSVP as space is limited and I wouldn’t want you to miss out on the goodness!
****SO in researching images for Leisure Diving, I came across other…oh, what do you call these, “things-to-do-in-public-that-are-awkward-and-funny”. Planking is a popular one, but never before had I heard of Coning, which is described as “ the act of buying a ice cream cone through a drive-through and grabbing it by the ice cream itself not the cone.”. You must see this video of coning being acted out. Must:
