Last Saturday, September 26 was Naturals in The City 12 and it was awesome!
The sun came out for us in full force, and the energy at Social Place that day was super. (Read “super” in a French accent)
Thank you to all the lovely ladies, and gents, and little ones that came to gather with us. Thank you Ebun, for helping us with registration. Thank you to our vendors, our speakers, and our ghen ghen caterer, Kitchen Butterfly. My friend Anu was our MC for the day, shout out to her for holding it down. And a special shout out to my wonderful fellow organizers, Natural Nigerian, Sherese (Carib Health) and @Ms_Isioma 🙂
It was a beautiful day. We started on time, people were actually early! And I think we recorded our biggest number so far- about 200 people! So amazing! I cannot give you a play by play of what went down at the meet-up since I was busy running around, but I’ve got about 50-something thousand words in pictures! Continue reading
Last Saturday, we #TurnedUp and showed out, at Naturals in The City 9! It was a great afternoon at Social Place*, and our lovely attendees collectively crushed it! Beautiful hair and good vibes in abundance 🙂 I know, I know, you wish you came too. 😛
The theme for the meet-up was “Maintaining Hair Length” and we had 3 brilliant speakers. Mosh Udobang of Naturalosity and Ade Balogun of Locitude talked hair and after them, professional fittie, personal trainer and gym manager, Adura_O talked about eating right on a Nigerian diet and embracing exercise. There were A LOT of questions asked after each talk, and Adura had the most. It’s good to know that we are as enthusiastic about the health of our bodies as we are about hair! 😉
We had a raffle draw at the end, and 4 lucky people won prizes from Tunmise Naturals. There was plenty to buy in The Gallery, where our vendors displayed. At this meet-up, we had 11: Aweni Organics, Oh So Smoothies, Bose’s Atelier, Olori Cosmetics, African Naturalistas, Locitude, Beautifully Nappy, Namaste Organics, Tunmise Naturals, Natural Nigerian and Fashion Strings.
Because we were so busy, we totally forgot about the Product Swap (this won’t happen at the next meet *face palm*), but the Medical Hair Clinic did happen. Dr Agility Ihesie consulted with the people who wanted to see her. I cannot tell you how that went because it was private and highly confidential, but I trust that it went well. 🙂
Enough with the talk-talk, I took photos. Like 300.
Kidding! Not really.Enjoy!
