We could do this every weekend.

nb

After several pretty trying days, this weekend’s activities were much needed! Before the evening ended with a red cup house party, I spent the afternoon basking in the sun at Naturally Beautiful [mentioned on the last Black Every Friday]. It was just as the title entails: naturally beautiful. Lots of gorgeous brown skin, natural hair, great artwork and stimulating conversation with magical minds.  The event was hosted by 50 Shades of Black and Loc Livin at Knight Photography Studio inside Atlanta’s Studioplex. Naturally Beautiful featured photographers Dex R. Jones and Joey Rosado who spoke on the importance of glorifying their love and appreciation of Black people, Black queens in particular. 95th St Tacos provided the delicious eats, The Good Hair Shop brought natural health and beauty products and demonstrated loc styling while God Is From pressed custom tees on site.

Art. Good conversation. Food. Music. Laughs. Dancing. Hangover. Leftover food.

Balance is restored.

    1. Aw don’t be jealous! I’m lucky to have a sister that likes to do a lot of the same things as me, so she rolls with me by default lol. And we actually made some friends at this event so it was pretty awesome.

I’m looking forward to this natural hair event happening next month. i’m ready to hear inspiring words (HeyFranHey is going to be there. squeals!), mingle with brown skinned ladies, and support small businesses. with all of the craziness going on in the world and our individual lives. it’s important to have moments such as these. glad you enjoyed it!
