The Life And Times..."CurlBox and Karen's Body Beautiful Meet-up"

I had the pleasure of going to a natural hair meet-up on Thursday evening sponsored by CurlBox and Karen's Body Beautiful in Brooklyn, located at 463 Myrtle Ave. I did a post a while back, here, reviewing one of my favorite products from Karen's Body Beautiful, the amazing Sweet Ambrosia, a leave-in conditioner that is a staple in my arsenal of products. The event was a way to get the word out and support the advancement of Karen's shop and her array of hair and body products. The event was from 6pm-9pm, and I arrived around 7:30pm to be the witness to a rather intimidatingly long line full of naturalistas, waiting to get into the shop. I waited, despite the blazing heat that took over NYC this week, and was able to meet some pretty amazing people on the line and inside the shop. Once we went inside we were surrounded by other naturals and products that KBB had to offer, as well as drinks to sip on! It was great to talk to those who attended and it was a great way to try and get the word out for my blog :) My phone ended up dying somewhere along the way of waiting on the line and getting in the shop so I had to compile my pics with some from other bloggers who were at the event! (Note to self: it's time to buy one of those super fancy cameras, lol). Enjoy!

We never met prior to this, but she recognized me because of my hair! She also has a YouTube channel: DanieAndTheBloomTV. Check it out!

When leaving the shop...attendee's were given a 4oz size of Karen's Body Beautiful "Luscious Locks Hair Mask" to try. I'll do a review of the conditioning treatment within the next week, since my hair is definitely do for a wash and new hair style, lol!
