Chicago Natural Hair Meetup Part 2

Saturday May 15th from 11am – 2pm there will be another natural hair meetup in Chicago at The Little Black Pearl, hosted by Leila of http://bglhonline.com/ again!!  I can’t wait to see my fellow naturals 🙂  If you read my previous post about the first meetup, you guys know that it was a good time and I hope that anyone in the Chicago area will come to join us to share hair care info, beauty products, hair products and much more 🙂  Check us out!

I’ll be there selling wonderful products by www.biggirlcosmetics.com such as diva gloss, mineral eye shadows, body butter and more 😀  The owner is a fellow Chicago natural sporting gorgeous Locs, so we have to support our peeps!  Bree of http://www.shopboutiqueunique.com/ will also be in attendance and she always has fly jewelry, so have those wallets ready for everything!  I’m sure there’ll be goodies all around.

Chicago Natural Hair Meet Up

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!

Gotta Look Good For LA

In fashion news, I am REALLY digging Jessica Simpson’s shoes/handbag lines!  I bought the most fab purse from her called the Limelight in color pine and it looks like it cost no less than $300.  It’s so luxe, I may have to rock that purse tonight to dinner with my girly Ashley.

it’s like this, but a deep teal color that is so chic for fall/winter and you know that jewel tones are in.

My daddy bought me a new ring/necklace set from Swarvoski that I wanted for months now.  It was a surprise and I am so in love with it and appreciative that he got it from me.  The thing is MAJOR blingage for my Hollywood life.

it’s called the Chic ring, and I must agree!  The necklace is small and has a couple of gems so as not to compete or overpower.  Ahh, I love it!  What do you think?

The Glamorous

Today, I am seriously feeling poor.  There are so many luxe things that I want, from make-up to trips to jewelry to food.  Ahhh!  The life of an heiress should be for me, ya know?

So I am giving a post to all of the things that I want right now, one item from each catergory:

Jewelry : This de Grisogono ring is composed of 382 black diamonds and a massive emerald-cut green diamond

Food:  I want some China Grill or Hamada’s habachi…how delish that would be right now!  Steak, lobster, and shrimp made on the habachi grill, along with noodles and chicken fried rice….divine!

Handbag:  I am besides myself with wanting a new designer handbag!  Where is the justice??!

Last, but not least, I need a break, a great vacation.  I am planning a trip to Greece, but it can’t seem to get her fast enough!

Okay, enough of my whining, back to reality I must go.  Where’s my pack of twizzlers for solace? 😦
