Just when I thought I might get a breather after hosting Fall Into Natural and Brown Girl Bliss, it’s time for me to pack it up and hit the road…FOR A MONTH! My little carry on suitcase is packed…well almost packed, I’ve got to make some serious decisions about shoes here soon and I’m leaving my dearest San Francisco tomorrow morning! Here’s what I’ve got in the pipeline! If you’re in any of these places—come join the fun!
On Saturday October 20th, I’ll be at the CurlyNikki + Motions Meet Up at Japonais. Curly Nikki events are always a fun time to socialize with some fierce naturalistas. The goodie bags ain’t bad either! The event is from 2-5pm and unfortunately it’s at capacity, but I’m still looking for some volunteers to help out behind the scenes if you’re interested in that! If so, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
I’m headed back to the Big Easy for my first time since Essence Fest! I’m excited to see what this city has to offer beyond the Convention Center and Superdome. You can be sure I’ll be taking some videos showing off some of the hidden gems off the beaten path that we can find. Keep your eyes peeled for an update from Jez and HIS big chop. I’m also hoping to catch up with my girls Aevin Dugas and Gabby Allen of StrawberriCurls (see how I made that public, y’all! It’s we make sure to make it happen. #accountability). It will also be halloween while I’m down there, WHICH IS MY MOST FAVORITE HOLIDAY EVER!
VIRGIN ISLANDS: St. Thomas + St. Croix
Ah, yes… the gorgeous Caribbean paradise of the USVI calls me once again. I’m honored to be invited back for a second year to the Miss Naturalista I AM BEAUTIFUL events hosted in St. Thomas on the 27th of October and St. Croix on the 28th. Last year’s events were magical as hundreds turned out for the shows, with waiting lines wrapped around the buildings. This year, promises to be even bigger and better with the addition of more speakers, vendors and natural hair education.
The event details have not been released quite yet, but suffice it to say I’m going to be a part of a very awesome event in Los Angeles on 11.11! As soon as the deets are up, I’ll post them. I can’t wait to give some love to my SoCal naturalistas!
Phew! It’s going to be quite a month, and I’d love to say that is it for me for 2012, but SOON I’ll be announcing details about my most exciting adventure yet. To a place where I’ve never, ever been before…I guess you can say, it will be like going home… ok ok ok, that’s enough hints for now! Stay tuned for more stories from the road! And if you’re in any of those places, hit me up!
