BTGH1Woot! Woot!

OH!!! And get this!!!! Though they don’t mention any of the contributors by name, Huffington Post had this to say:

“We especially love the sections on how to maintain gorgeous hair while exercising (since that’s proving to present some major health risks) …”

That’s me!!! That’s me!!! LOL!!

The Mane Event and a Haus of Swag Discount Code!

Standard

IMG_7627Gina, me and Jacelyn

On Saturday, I attended The Mane Event, a natural hair vendor affair at The Luna Stage in West Orange, NJ. I learned about this event from Gina and attended with her and her friend (and my new curlfriend AND comics/cartoon compatriot) Jacelyn. The Luna Stage is a cozy and quaint theatre on the border of Orange and West Orange, a stone’s throw away from where I used to live years ago! I had to park a couple of blocks away, because the space was packed with gorgeous naturalistas! The event ran from 2 pm – 6 pm and was followed with a staged reading of the play, Supernatural, which I did not attend.

When I arrived, guess who was one of the first people that I spotted?!

wondercurlatTheManeEvent

It’s Scarlett of Wonder Curl!! She was in the house selling her line along with so many other enterprising ladies and gents (support small businesses!!). She bought the lovely, sweet as pie and HEE-larious Cadian (I love this lady) aka The Lone Natural along with her!!

Cutting up! Do you SEE the shoes?!?!

Cutting up! Do you SEE the shoes?!?!

Later, I saw some wonderful young ladies that I met at the CurlyNikki meet-up this summer and then I ran into the lovely and sweet Gaye aka Sweetdrk1 aka GGMadeIt aka Boog’s (as in CurlyNikki’s baby girl Gia) babysitter!! It was soooo nice meeting her in person as we’ve been Facebook friends for a bit! She is such a sweetie with a huge heart and GORGEOUS coils!! I loved her rod set and her color!!

Gayeandme

Sporting one of her “loverly” knit creations … of course:)!! Check out her Etsy shop!!

So yeah, the theatre was packed from end to end. There were vendors in the entrance, the hallways and two rooms and tons of naturalistas jockeying for space at the tables to check out all of the wares!! There were hair products, tons of jewelry, hair accessories, hand-knit goods, natural greeting cards, funky tees, handmade jams and a variety of other novelties!

Check out the view!

Okay, so y’all know that I didn’t leave all of that empty-handed. BUT, I was good … no new hair products! Wooh-hooh!! PJ instincts quelled!! I didn’t even approach those tables too closely … once an addict, always an addict. *lol* However, I couldn’t resist picking up a few pretties!! Here’s my haul.

The bow earrings were made while I waited. Total cost for all 3 pairs: $4! (TheUniquePieces.com)

A HAUS OF SWAG DISCOUNT CODE

IMG_7683

So, I have to tell you, I spent a good 20 minutes talking to the CEO of Haus of Swag, Toni, on Saturday. First, let me say that the woman is fly! Her hair was GORG!! Immediately grabbed my attention and just about everyone else’s! I swear, I witnessed at least 10 ladies ask her how she styled it (fresh twist-out with Cantu Shea conditioner, if you must know. ;)). Well, we ended up talking about all kinds of things, including me telling her about Wonder Woman’s black twin sister, Nubia, Rebel flags, black empowerment, Barak’s re-election (we waiting for him to get it in now … no re-election to worry about) and her telling me about the Wisconsin senator who said that blacks don’t even celebrate Kwanzaa. Wha?!?! Yeah, I didn’t know about that one either!! Check it out here!

Anywho, I was able to pick up my tees at The Mane Event for the super low price of only $20 each. However, that was a special price for the affair! Well, I knew that some of you would probably be interested in these HAWT tees (don’t you just love the shapes?!?!). So, I contacted Toni via e-mail to see if I could get a discount code for my Hairscapades ladies! And, guess what?!?! Being the awesome lady that she is, Toni kindly obliged!! Soooooo …

From now until 12:00 am on 1/20/13, you can get 15% off of your total Haus of Swag order with
discount code: HAIRSCAPADES!!!**

How frickin’ awesome is that?!?! And, to find out when Haus of Swag is coming to an event near you, like their Facebook page, HausofSwag.com and/or join their e-mail list!!

The Fellowship of the Jaded

Yes!! We had another haircut party with Tameeka McNeil-Johnson aka Jaded Tresses. This time, it was at the house of Tiffany’s twin sister, Trina (not pictured). So, I’m a little delayed with this post because the pics I took with my iPhone were pretty crappy and I needed Tiffany to hook me up with quality pics from her good camera!! (No more being lazy and not taking out the real camera for me ;)).

Anywho, there was a gaggle of ladies, some there for services, others just to partake in the festivities, observe and learn.

Check out the view!

And, on a side note, I brought the Cream and Coco Curls for Days Hair Pudding and the Mizani True Textures Leave-in and Jelly for styling. I wanted to see how they worked on a WnG. Tameeka played around with both products and got better definition and less frizz on the side done with … surprise, surprise … the lightweight and creamy C&C Hair Pudding!

But, get this, with everyone else, she used her own concoction of Eco Styler Crystal gel mixed with lots of water, coconut oil and a few drops of lavender essential oil!! And look at those results!! I’m definitely going to have to try that combo the next time I do a WnG … or maybe even a twist or braid out!!

Oh, and for those of you interested in my lovely baby doll tee as seen here:

Curlisious_shirt-pink

It was gifted to me by Connie at Curlisious.com this past summer and I am long overdue sharing it!! It comes in three colors (white, pink, and yellow) at $25 a pop!! Pretty HAWT, right?!?

CurlKit Reveal

Standard

curlkitlogo

About a year or so ago, a few brilliant business minds came up with the idea to satisfy the curiosity and obsessions of natural hair Product Junkies (PJs) everywhere without breaking their wallet … and while still capitalizing upon the affliction ;). The likes of CurlKit and CurlBox were born!! These companies send subscribers a monthly supply of hair goodies (samples and some full size products) for around $20 a month so that PJs or newbies looking for their staple and/or holy grail products can sample to their hearts’ content. What makes it more exciting (or frustrating, depends on your perspective and if you get in or not ;)) is that the ability to subscribe is limited to certain periods and numbers of customers. I think this is because these businesses are new and growing and have to make certain that they can acquire enough products to satisfy the orders for their subscribers.

Anywho, back in September, I responded to CurlKit’s solicitation for a 31 Bloggers in 31 days feature and got selected (check out my post here)!! Well, imagine my surprise when I got tagged on Instagram and discovered that my Best Bun Practices for Length Retention article was featured in the December CurlKit magazine, CurlLife!!

hairscapadesinCurlLife

Anywho, just wanted to share that and this reveal of the December CurlKit that was taped by my IG friend!! You can get a little taste of what it’s like to get your very own CurlKit delivered to your doorstep!

Okay, you know that I’m really sharing this because of the shout out!! LOL!! You are all my (virtual) friends in my head ;)!!

Do you have a CurlKit and/or CurlBox subscription? If so, which one(s)? How do you like it/them? If you have both, how do they compare?
