Afrobella Anniversary Week = all giveaways, all week long! This one’s from one of my favorite brands – Carol’s Daughter. We’ve both come such a long way.
Little known fact about this here blog — Lisa Price was one of the first entrepreneurs I met in the natural hair and beauty business. A Carol’s Daughter event with Mary J. Blige was one of the first celebrity beauty events I ever attended. Carol’s Daughter was among the very first brands to send me product to review (and they were gracious when my review included constructive criticism about packaging). Back when Afrobella.com began, Carol’s Daughter had just begun to truly expand — I believe their store on 125th Street in Harlem had recently opened. It was an exciting time for natural hair – you could see the beginnings of so much promise everywhere you looked!
Carol’s Daughter has grown and evolved so much. I feel a sense of personal pride when I turn on my TV and there’s Lisa on HSN, flanked by celebrities who all agree that they love her products. I’ll definitely be watching this weekend — on 8/13, Mary J. Blige will be on HSN launching her new My Life Blossom fragrance. On the Carol’s Daughter Facebook page (have you clicked like yet? Whatcha waiting for?) they’ve been hosting a daily give-away for a MJB prize pack in promotion for Mary’s appearance on Saturday. Today’s your last day to enter that giveaway!
This weekend, $1 from each sale of My Life Blossom fragrance this weekend will go to Mary J. Blige’s charity, FFAWN . And you can tweet Mary (@MaryJBlige) and Carol’s Daughter (@Carols_Daughter) while you watch, using the hashtag #MJBMyLife! They’ll be reading and responding.
