Trying to improve my life

Licorice Whip

I recently got the opportunity to provide some handmade soap for the natural hair meet up Curly! for Kids and Teens. It was a great event hosted by Candace K. with two special presenters Tameeka McNeil-Johnson, a NYC natural hair stylist, and Lavett Ballard, a local artist and author of “In Mama’s Shoes”. Tameeka gave some great tips and advice on caring for natural hair. She also did a couple of demos on audience members (one young lady decided to big chop right then and there). Lavett spoke on her new book, “In Mama’s Shoes”, about a young girl who gets to experience parts of her mother’s life by putting on her shoes. Below are pictures from the event and a video of me making the test batch of the soap. I call it Licorice Whip because it smells like licorice.

Went to the Met last night with these lovely ladies. Every time I go I find new rooms that I haven't been in before. Happy New Year!
