I can personally count on both hands how many interviews I arrive in wearing my natural curls, versus wearing my hair straight. Unfortunately, all the jobs I’ve attained, I interview for the job with straight hair. A part of me feels as I gave into society standards when I sport a straight hair-do just to land the job.Now keep in mind, I’m not speaking for every curly-haired girl; I’m solely speaking from my experience. When my mentor invited me to the CurlFest in Prospect Park, I had a flashback of my horrible experience. When she explained to me what Curlfest is about, I automatically fell in love with the concept a festival celebrating natural curls.
This past weekend I took a long train ride to Brooklyners favorite beach, Coney Island. The hour and seventeen minutes are worth it when you’re visiting the Mermaid Parade for the first time. Looking at the beautiful painted faces and bodies covered with glitter gave me nostalgia. I hid underneath a fellow show watcher’s umbrella, hoping it won’t rain all day. Luckily for me, the sun rays shine shortly after, and I got to join the parade without any more rain drops. As much as I begged for Mr.sunshine to stretch out his rays, I felt my mermaid makeup melting. I placed my hand in my purse and searched for the only product I trust to keep my face fresh. Shortly after, I saw a pink and white aerosol bottle and scream YES what will I do without Evian Spray.

Fumbling to put on my false eyelashes was due to my excitement with a hint of stress.I was super excited to attend my first Beautycon. However, the hint of fear kicked in when I realized I’m running almost three hours late.I was practicing my breathing exercises I learn through a yoga workshop to help relief my stress.The breathing exercise surprisingly was working while I finally aced putting the false eyelashes on my eyelids.I did not want to go to a beauty event without a full face makeup look; It may seem overdramatic, but I felt it was necessary for me to go made up.Other than practicing my breathing exercises requesting an Uber ride eliminated my stress of FOM (fear of missing out.)Before I knew it, I was well on my way to my first Beauty Con.
