Coastal Scents: The Unboxing

I am so excited that my Coastal Scents Black Friday items have finally arrived that I decided to post a quick unboxing for you all to give you a peek at what I purchased. Coastal Scents had an AWESOME Black Friday sale with 50% off the entire site and I decided to take advantage of the steep markdowns. I snagged a few eye shadow palettes that piqued my interest, some makeup brushes, empty eye shadow palettes (for depots) and black soap. I was thoroughly impressed with the packaging of my fragile items for shipment because not a single eye shadow was chipped or broken!  I was blown away with how pretty the shadows look in person and I can’t wait to swatch these and start playing in them. Standby for swatches and a review!

World Natural Hair Show (WNHS) 2013

16th Annual World Natural Hair Show

2013 Spring Show – April 27th-28th
Georgia International Convention Center, College Pk, GA

Mark your calendar. We had a GREAT time at the Spring 2012 show! It was so nice meeting people from the different online natural hair communities. Dinner at Simon’s Steak and Seafood was a blast!  If you’ve never been to the World Natural Hair Show, you owe it to yourself to attend one show. If you’re considering giving up the lye, or you’re in the beginning stages of transitioning, seeing an abundance of beautiful, kinky/coily/curly heads will encourage you to make that decision and stay on the path to chemical-free hair. It’s an empowering experience you won’t want to miss. Start saving your money now – you’ll need sufficient funds to purchase lots of products. We’re talking about a possible Friday nite meetup for dinner and great conversation.

Have you ever been to the show? Do you plan on attending the Spring 2013 show? Where are you in your natural hair journey?  Leave a comment…let us know your plans!
