Dolls I’m super late but what can I say…Life happens! Last month I was bless to be a Curl Legend Honoree along with some of the most amazingly beautiful melanin natural sisters. We were all asked to meet at Serenbe Farms which is not to far from where I live so I’m all for a short ride to an event. In case you’re not familiar with Serenbe its a progressive community connected to nature on the edge of Atlanta. Its a neighborhood full of fresh food, fresh air and a focus on wellbeing. It’s a beautiful community within a community rich of preserved forest, meadows, nature trails and of course the perfect place for a private garden party!
Imagine taking a walk on a magical walkway leading to a beautiful garden. That’s how I felt as I walked the walkway leading to our private Garden Party. Keep in mind that Serenbe is a place that I go to often but this event was simply magical. The beautiful creators of CurlFest & Curly Girl Collective greeted me as I arrived and immediately upon arrival we headed over to the Royal Crown Station where we created Honorary Flower Crowns to adorn our beautiful tresses. Check out the unique graceful colors that were selected for us to create our crowns. Purple signifies Royalty!
I was so excited to see several familiar faces and to meet so many new beauties that I have followed and interacted with online and now thanks to the ladies of CurlFest and Phyto Specific I had the opportunity to create more lifetime friendships. I’ve been natural for years and this was my first time as an honoree. Normally I’m the photographer or social media concierge at the event so this was indeed a treat. Just take a look at all of the beauty in one room!
We all gathered and snap a few pictures in the photo section with props and them played an awesome ice breaker game where we all answered a few questions about ourselves and turned them in so that the sheets could be disbursed among all of the beauties. We had to go around the room and ask each other questions until we found our beauty.
We all enjoyed learning about the history behind the creation of Phyto Specific and how they truly understand the need for us to maintain our beautiful curls. We all loved the fact that the products are botanical with ingredients like: hibiscus flower, comfrey and elderberry extracts, plant marrow, calendula and macadamia oil. All of which are sweet music to my ears and my natural tresses.
The tables were set fitting for a fairytale. As we chatted amongst ourselves, were educated on maintaining our curls we enjoyed amazing bites as we all posted our beautiful pictures on social media to share our amazing experience with the world.
The event was so amazing! I want to personally thank the beauties of Curl Fest, Curly Girl Collective and Phyto Specific for honoring all of thees beautiful influencers and I as their official #CurlLegend.
