Curly Nikki's NY Meetup!!

Hey dolls:

This past week, I was in NY on official business doing the usual 9-5 and I must say that it was a great business trip.

Whilst in NY, I met up with the lovely Franchesca Ramsey of Chescalocs on Youtube who invited me to an exclusive natural hair event in celebration of Curly Nikki's website launch 3 years ago. This event was to meet CurlyNikki in New York as she teamed up with MIZANI. I graciously accepted the invite without hesitation and was so happy that Franchesca thought to extend the invitation to me. I met amazing women with all types of natural hair textures who were surely rocking their street styles. I also networked with other natural hair enthusiasts (Francheska Medina, Cipriana) makeup artists, photographers (Terrence Jennings , Nicole Melton etc) and just beautiful women all around. It was truly a spectacular event.

CurlyNikki's meetup was held at the luxurious Carlton Hotel in New York with the after party at Pranna Resturant.

As you all know, I love my camera and never leave home without it so here are a few pictures for your viewing pleasure.
