My first blogging segment/meet-and-greet was this past Saturday during the KC Natural Hair Expo, and it was a wonderful turnout- thanks to you all!
We discussed topics from the power of the Black dollar to cultural appropriation- the dialogue was lit! I had a packed room full of beautiful women (and men) freely expressing their opinions about issues plaguing the natural hair community today. We also came up with solutions to eliminate some of these issues- which was my favorite part!
While sipping on "Berry Wellness" tea provided by the Tea Market, and eating mini cupcakes provided by my sister (her information will be posted in newsletter), we were able to have open dialogue from attendees of all walks of life.
And of course I had my five giveaways for attendees! Upon arrival, participants were able to enter the drawing for one of five goodie bags (created by me)! And with the help of my lovely sponsors I was able to give away FULL SIZE products to winners!
Words cannot express how happy and encouraged I feel after this event! You all showed up and showed out, and we all were able to shed immense light on my Hay Queen! brand. This weekend was a testament of why I do what I do: to help the community which I live in to recognize their own beauty and value- and that definitely happened at #TeaTalk.
I'm completely encouraged, and will keep spreading this message. Due to the success of #TeaTalk there have been many requests for me to hold a fall segment as well. And guess what? I absolutely will! Stay tuned for updates!
