So I have to say a HUGE thank you to everyone who came out to support me and Mimi J. as we celebrated our 4th annual Naturally Pretty event with a "High Texture Tea"! When Mimi J. and I started this event back in 2011, we wanted to create an interactive experience full of all things natural hair and beauty and an opportunity that would also give us a platform to give back to our charity of choice, the Atlanta Day Shelter for Women & Children. We have been so appreciative of the support over the last few years and this year was no different! Thank you to our title sponsor ( Beautiful Textures ), media sponsor (talkingtexture.com) and our gold sponsor ( CURLS ) for helping to make this event possible!
