2nd Annual “Naturally Pretty” – hosted by Natural Chica and MiMi J

The 2nd Annual “Naturally Pretty” event was Lead by Maeling Tapp, a natural hair blogger of Naturalchica.com, and Mia “MiMi” Johnson, celebrity makeup artist of Mimijonline.com. When I first arrived at the event it was very hard to find a park, the parking was very limited. I had to park on the street like most of the other natural beauties. I proceeded to the doors and there was an array of beautiful natural woman in line to get in. Some had two strand twist, afro, mohawk, braids, blow out a twist out and so much more. (Next time I will take more pictures of the beautiful woman in attendance) I waited outside for my friend Marie to arrive then we headed to the line. The line moved   pretty quick, then we were handed a orange beautiful swag bag full of goodies. Marie and I proceeded into the ballroom was  decorated nicely with all kinds of cupcakes other goodies on the table for the guest. I must say that those were the best cupcakes that I have had in long time. After eating a few of the goodies we begin to walk around ,there was great music playing and natural hair vendors lined up all across the room. We then spotted Maeling and MiMi they both looked naturally beautiful. There were prize giveaways,live musical performances from Greg Banks, Farah-Lissa, and The Chase. DJ Princess Cut. As well as Live beauty demos by Celebrity Makeup Artist Alexandra Butler, Celebrity Hair Stylist April B, and Tress Talk. As we stood around soaking in the beauty around us we were approached by Essence.com Photographer and she asked if we want to be on the Essence.com page we looked at each other like yes….lol.

We were also approached by RobinLori she posted a picture of Marie and I together on her website at http://www.itsrobinlori.com/. Our last approach was by an editor from Tasty Maker Magazine as well. www.issuu.com/tastemakermagazine she posted our picture on her instragram account. Thanks to all the ladies that took photos of us and posted them much love and success to all of you…. By the end of the night Marie and I were heading out and they had swag bags left over so they gave us an extra bag so we were extra happy about that. I give this event a thumbs up for its 2nd year way to go ladies.
