Events—The Beauty Soiree Part 2 Recap

Hola!  This past weekend I had the honor of being on the Hair Me Out panel at my friend’s (Sade of 1Girl Boutique) event—The Beauty Soiree Part 2.  It was held at the New York Foundation for the Arts in the Dumbo area of Brooklyn.  The space was filled with lots of fab natural haired ladies and beauty.  We had a great time sharing our personal hair stories, talking about products and more.  Coming up in another post I will share the video footage but for now take a peek at the pics below.  Enjoy!

Ove The Hair Me Out Panel. I was obviously making my point…peep the hands lol.

An attendee was selected to get her makeup done by Ketta Vaughn and Eve Chen using Ketta Vaughn cosmetics. They gave her a very fresh, natural looking face—nice!

It was such a fun day!  I hope to be able to take part in more events like this in the future.  Have you been to any great natural hair or beauty events lately?  Or better yet are you planning one?  Do tell!

Monday’s Muse—Joie Lee

Hola!  Welcome to Monday!  Let’s start the week off right with today’s fab muse—Joie Lee.  You may remember her as she starred in the famed 1989 film Do the Right Thing, which was directed by her famous brother Spike Lee.  Aside from acting Joie in her own right is well-known screenwriter and film producer as well.  I always thought that she was such a unique beauty—cinnamon brown skin, bright big eyes and the kinky curls…flawless!  I am happy to have her as an SNC muse 🙂

My Fave Photos—Bey’s Tumblr

Hola peeps!  Sorry as I have been M.I.A. a lot as of late.  I promise once I get a grasp on things posts will resume on the reg, until then I hope that you continue to swing by and enjoy SNC. 

Now on to today’s post—my fave pics from Beyonce’s new Tumblr.  I am sure that you all have seen them somewhere as when she released them almost 2 weeks ago the web went crazy.  I just wanted to share a few that really stood out to me.  I love the pic with her and Solo—nothing like having a sisterly bond.  The second make me do a double take because I need every single ring that she is wearing.  The last photo I adore!  Jay and Bey together are major powerhouses; both are at the top of their game, they have a genuine love and everyone wants a piece of them.  Enjoy!
