Guest post from New York writer Mo of CurlsandMo.com
On Saturday, November 2nd, 2013 I co-hosted Mommy & Me: A Young Naturalista Beauty Event with La’Nisha of Curly Divas. It was such an amazing event. I had so much fun with the little girls and they were so funny. I always forget how opinionated kids can be. It was important to me to organize this event because we focus so much on ourselves and what it means to be natural [to us] that I felt like our girls needed to be reminded that they are beautiful naturals, too. I wanted them to see other little girls and women who look just like them.
We had face painting and manicures for the little naturalistas, raffles for the moms, refreshments for all and great swag bags. We also had vendors for the moms to shop and amazing demonstrations from Wonder Curl and Diane C. Bailey (Thank you, Shea Moisture).
When the little ones weren’t having their faces painted or nails polished they hung out in the Kiddie Korner coloring, drawing and reading! Moms were also given New York Public Library card applications to make sure they’re all signed up!
Thank you to our sponsors: Shea Moisture, curlBOX, Taaliah Waajid, Elasta QP, Anu Essentials, Curls Unleashed and others.
