Today I went to my first natural hair meetup and it was super fun, even though I was running on CP time and got there pretty late :( Still got to mingle and isn’t that what it’s all about? Having fun, chit chatting, exchanging information = ALWAYS WIN!
It’s quite nice to put a real in person face to the web personas that you are used to admiring, tweeting with, or reading the blogs of. Lovely Leila Noelliste of Black Girl Long Hair put on the event and it was held at the Little Black Pearl of Chicago. People brought products to trade and some jewelry was on sale, which allowed me to meet my buddy Bree of Boutique Unique and buy a gorgeous cranberry colored bracelet which I will rock the heck out of in NYC this week.
She’s so sweet and pretty, check out her boutique for great priced jewelry and shirts
Shout outs to her and Tori from A Kinky Hair Monologue whom I got to meet. Last but not least, it was a pleasure to meet Patrice, Ms. Afrobella herself! She was oh so cute with her big pretty hair! Quite the bella indeed :)
The weather decided to pull a Chicago and go from 65 degrees Friday to 30 degrees and snowing Saturday, but we all came out and had fun! It was a great meetup and I look forward to any future ones!
