ICYMI: The Visions Beauty Natural Hair and Health Expo


I am literally still recovering from last weekend’s Expo. It was AMAZING to see a veritable sea of beauties with natural hair of every texture and hue, sharing tips and being pampered by the products and specialists on board last Saturday at the BJCC. In a word, it was self-affirming, especially if you live or work in a space where you rarely interact with other naturalistas. I am so glad I got to catch up with fellow bloggers Javacia Bowser of See Jane Write and Karri Bentley of So Very Karri, too!

I am LOVING my freebies from Miss Jessie’s (product reviews coming soon!) and appreciated the opportunity to connect with vendors like Kurly Kutie, who has a super cute line of t-shirts! The absolute highlight for me was the opportunity to interview blogger/author/life coach/reality tv star Demetria Lucas (stay tuned for that; it deserves a post of its own!). All in all, it was a day in which I realized I’m living my dreams, on my own terms (and that includes my hair – which you can see in one of these photos).

Thanks for reading,

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  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,  noted actor Lamman Rucker, Orange is the New Black star Tanya Wright and more!
