Curly Nikki and Dark & Lovely Curl Power Event Recap

Standard

I know, I know! This is overdue! LOL!! But, it’s been a work in progress over the last several days. The work wasn’t writing it … it was getting all the pics onto my computer (camera … which died at the event and cell phone), then re-sizing them and deciding which ones to include! As you see … I didn’t make much of a decision! I’m sharing almost all of them!! LOL!!

On to the night!! CurlyNikki sent me an early invite for VIP access to the media event prior to the meet-up. So, my sister Shana, Wei and I got there at 5 to find a swanky space, hors d’oeuvres, drinks, music, natural models, Dark & Lovely stylist booths, a green screen photo area, media and lots of lovely naturals. But, because it was early, we were able to easily move around, get seats, get pics with fellow bloggers and see Marsha Ambrosius’s arrival!! I even got to ask Marsha a couple of questions and record her!!! But, I need a space upgrade to load it here … so, you’ll just have to read my recap of it ;)!! LOL!! So, her hair was so fly, big, lush, wavy … I had to ask how it was styled. She said it was sectioned into about 8 and set into Bantu knots with a small amount of the Dark and Lovely Au Naturale pomade gel product!! I also had to say how much I loved her accent and she said that American accents are loved in England! Who knew?!?! LOL!!

Anywho, the event overall was so awesome!! Definitely the best CurlyNikki NYC event that I’ve attended!! The music, the food, the open bar (neither of which I partook in … I don’t drink and y’all know I’m working on this weight thing ;)), the whole thing was just so much fun!!

And with that … check out the view!!

It’s here!!! It’s here!! Okay, my copy isn’t here. But Hairscapades follower Myeisha got her copy of Curly Nikki’s Better Than Good Hair yesterday and shared pictures of my Exercise and Natural Hair article on the Hairscapades Facebook page!!

BTGH1Woot! Woot!

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

via HuffingtonPost.com

“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!!

Anywho, hopefully I’ll get my copy today! If you haven’t ordered yours, now is a great time to get it!! Because, you can get a $10 Shea Moisture coupon when you do the following:

  1. Buy a print copy of the book between January 29th and February 2nd on Amazon.com, BarnesandNoble.com or at your local bookstore.
  2. Register at Shea Moisture Events Giveaway HERE.

How easy is that? And shoot, if you get the coupon, it’s like getting the book for free!! Buuuuut, you have to order and register fast as this offer is only good while supplies last!! (Full details of offer here.)

(Hmmm, I think I may need to pick up a couple more copies for the family myself! Given my PJ ways, you know that I want some Shea Moisture coupons ;).)

Its about to go down. Thats right! It’s almost book time. In T-Minus 16 days, ‘Better Than Good Hair’ will be on shelves. I hope y’all are as excited about this as I am! And before January 29th comes (and I’m as nervous as when I’m slowly tearing into a can of biscuits), I want to take a sec to tell you something: I need you gals! Why? Because I want us to make waves. I want us to be the norm, mainstream. Never should we lose our individuality – but at the same time we should be wholly identifiable as those women who said “You know what? I. Love. MY. Hair.” Numbers are what matter here. I told you before – the world is watching.

This post is like that moment in many Fresh Prince of Bel-Air episodes when Will looks directly in the camera, or the camera zooms out and you see the studio. Completely transparent. So who’s going to be my DJ Jazzy Jeff banging on the drums?! YOU! Buy the book for your co-workers, your boss, your teachers, your babysitters, your mailman, your milkman, your pushaman (if you’re into that kind of thing, lol). You drop the mad beat and I promise we’ll hit the running man together.

Later Gators,
Nik

p.s.
