Toss some sequins, darlings!

If you are a fan of Bravo’s Blood, Sweat and Heels, then you’re surely familiar with Ms. Lucas. The multi-talented blogger and author, known for her spot-on writing at A Belle in Brooklyn, no nonsense advice (you should be reading her Q&A on Ask.fm)  and her fierce sense of style will be in Birmingham on Saturday, March 29. She will appear at the Third Annual Natural Hair and Health Expo at the BJCC, which will feature tips for style and well-being, natural hair consultations, vendors and live entertainment. For tickets, click HERE.

If I sound slightly starstruck fan, it’s because I am. Ms. Lucas has a way of sharing her wit and wisdom that totally empowers readers. (She will soon release her second book, Don’t Waste the Pretty, which we are also here for.) And I can’t wait to receive some tips on styling my curls!

The expo, which is the largest of its kind in Alabama, will also feature a “Curls and Conversations” panel discussion on the impact of natural hair, popular natural hair bloggers (from YouTube’s MahoganyCurls and NaturallyCurly.com),  noted actor Lamman Rucker, Orange is the New Black star Tanya Wright and more! A press release party for the event will be held this Sunday at WorkPlay.

See you there!

Recommended Reading: A Belle in Brooklyn

While I’m not sure being born in Maryland allows one to qualify as a Southern Belle, this book is a must-read for any woman (i.e. adult, grown lady, not your baby cousin), single or otherwise.  With humor, candor, and the willingness to tell (almost) all so readers can learn from her mistakes, Demetria L. Lucas proves she is definitely the “go-to girl for relationship and dating advice.”  She definitely shows that all women aren’t busted and disgusted when it comes to relationships, nor are we all blue in the face from waiting to exhale.  As the relationships editor for Essence,  Lucas’ daily Real Talk blog posts edify, entertain and make us think, but this book was like settling in for a good session of girltalk.  You will laugh, you very well may cry, and if you have lived life at all you will probably see yourself in its pages.   And if you currently find yourself  out on a limb, on an emotional ledge or are a hot mess when it comes to dating, please stop the madness and get this book.  Read it.  And do better.

Being (love) crazy over the age of eighteen ain’t chic.
