Got any plans this weekend?

On Saturday I’ll be attending the Macy’s third Women of Color Makeup Event at Aventura Mall! It starts at 11 a.m., ends at 7 p.m., and there are presentations by famous makeup artists like Patrece Williams and fabulous afrofella Damone Roberts, AKA the Eyebrow King. And I’m totally getting a minifacial at the Goldfaden counter, and doing some interviews. If you see me, don’t be afraid to say hi!

And while I’m at it — another question. I have the opportunity to perhaps have my very first Afrobella event sometime in March before my big move to Chicago. So if I threw a party, and invited everyone I knew… how many of you would be down to attend? I’m thinking a fun in-store event, maybe mini-mani-pedis if possible, drinks, snacks, and just fun to meet as many bellas as possible! Who’s down? Let me know! Your feedback will determine if I do this event here, or if I wait to move to Chicago.

CHICAGO!!!! Do it here afrobella!!! We'd totally support it, it would be so nice to meet u. I personally would also really love to meet the other natural bellas here in the city. The natural scene here is still a little under the radar. If a sister here has no chemical process in the hair its still normal that she uses hit to straighten it, rather than naturally wearing it out. So for me, as a newly nappy bella myself, it would be so very awesum to meet my fellow bellas here in the chi. Plus who wouldn't wanna party with Afrobella the loveliest bella of all!!

Chi, Chi, all the way Chi! Please, please have your event here. We need to meet, especially all of the natural beauties. Quick story: I was browsing the DevaCurl products at the downtown Ulta and a woman came right up and asked my opinion on the products. Having tried a travel size, I told her my thoughts. That turned into a great 15 mintues of 'Have you tried this? Have you used that?' When we parted by bf commented that we needed a monthly natural hair pow-wow. Build it in Chicago and we will come!

I think a "farewell" South Florida Afrobella event would be awesome. You should definitely have one here before you leave. You could always host an "introductory" Chicago one down the road!

Are you really planning to leave warm weather SFla for coollld ChiTown. If you must, you must but keep us in the loop and while you're at it how about some styles for us curvy bodies. I do not want to see another lowrider with belly hanging out.

You HAVE to do it in South Florida! After all, it's where was born, right?! And besides, since I missed meeting you at the SoBe Food & Wine fest last weekend, I'd like to have one more chance before you leave! SoFla for the win!

DO HERE IN MIAMI! :) As a college bella, who is addicted to your blog, I love the idea of that. It would be great to meet the woman who writes one of my favorite blogs and other bellas around the miami area.
