Curlfest 2017: A First-Timer Powerful Experience-Giveaway Included

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.

How To Achieve A Glamorous Messy Boho Braided Wrap With Hask Hair

A few weeks ago I attended a blogging mixer at New York  City’s secret social restaurant, “The Parlor.” My friend Kevin Shahroozi (a high-end fashion designer)  extended out his invitation to me.  I panicked, my hair is dirty with excess oils from various beauty products. I wondered, “How can I pull this off in just a couple of hours.” Luckily for me, I opened up my beauty cabinet and heard an angel choir singing “ahh.” My answer appears right in front of my eyes, Hask Hair dry shampoos.

While during the summer I gravitate towards the season picturesque setting, and it reflects in my day-to-day wear. My favorite colorful item to help match the summer vibes is earrings.

Mermaid Lovers #StayCool With The Outstanding Evian Spray

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.

As an NYC native, attending museums became second nature to me when I was growing up.
