Be Authentic! Be You! Event Recap

Believe in yourself. Believe in embracing the real you. I believe in you. That’s what’s my Be Authentic! Be You! event was all about: helping women learn to appreciate themselves. With the help of the crew at DevaCurl’s DevaChan Salon, makeup and skincare artist Renée Loiz, and a few other great friends, we had a night full of beauty and love.

I realized a little while ago that we don’t get together enough. We’re so busy with our day-to-day lives, jobs, and being superwomen that we neglect ourselves and hanging with our girlfriends. This party was a little getaway for us with great music, a cute photo booth, a little humbly, and pampering too. Throughout the evening, ladies enjoyed beauty makeovers by Renée and curl consultations by the folks at DevaChan salon. you can check out some of Renée’s skincare tricks from the event here.

We often forget our true potential until we come together with like-minded individuals. The event was filled with some of the most influential people in Los Angeles including Numa Perrier of Black and Sexy TV, Delali Kpodzo of Onyx Box, influencer Taye Hansberry, blogger and stylist Vic Styles, and natural hair guru Felicia Leatherwood. These women inspire me with their tenacity, intelligence, and drive every single day.

As I said that night, “There’s so much power in this one room, all you have to do is look around. You’re part of this.”  

I cannot wait until we do this again. Let’s spread the love!

A special thanks to our friends and sponsors DevaCurl, Renée Loiz, DJ Myra Hasson, Revel Inc., Pixabooth, Mauds of Beverly Hills, Naild Spa & Lounge, and Nuxe Paris.
