Fashion and Beauty Met Natural Hair- Eden BodyWorks’ Style With Eden Event
When I think about Eden BodyWorks, I can hear Biggie Smalls singing “and another one” as in another fab event. About a year ago, Eden BodyWorks launched its new Jojoba Monoi line with a Brunch with Eden series. This year, Eden BodyWorks kicked off its Style with Eden series to announce its new Coconut Oil and Shea Butter infused products at Pranna in NYC.
The event was attended by NYC’s stylistas and natural hair lovers. Bloggers, beauty, fashion and media mavens mingled and gagged over each others hair and accessories while enjoying delicious bites and cocktails. There was also an informational panel in true Eden fashion (always educating on the importance of natural, healthy, beauty practices) that included Felicia Leatherwood, Natural Hair Stylist and Founder of Loving Your Hair with Natural Care, Kela Walker, Style Contributor to Black Enterprise and Founder of Kela’s Kloset, Latisha Daring, Owner and Designer of Asytyn LLC, and Milly Almodovar, Beauty Editor for Cosmo Latina and Founder of Beauty Logic Blog.
The event took place on the first day of Spring but the weather didn’t get the memo. Because it was so cold out, I opted for my trusty black wrap dress, black and gold Cesare Pacoitti boots, bright necklace and a bright lip. I tried to throw spring in there with the lip and necklace although it was clearly winter outside. (rolls eyes extra hard)
Overall, the night was amazing as everyone networked and connected. Click through the pics to see how everything shaped up. As soon as I try the new Coconut Shea products I will do a review. There were new additions like curly puddings in soft and medium hold as well as a co wash, leave in conditioner, and shampoo. The products are slated to hit Walmart stores in the beginning of April.
Check out Eden BodyWorks’ facebook page to see when Style with Eden will hit a city near you. Attending one of their events is so worth it. Until next time lovelies.

Natural Hair on The Corner- Karen’s Body Beautiful Naturally Chic Hair Nectar (Winter Hair Care)
So the weather in NYC has taken a turn for the frigid and I’m continuing to make sure my tresses remain in tip top shape with this awesome leave in conditioner. I always use a leave in conditioner especially since I wear my hair stretched via blow drying. The leave in gives it added protection from the heat, styling and whatever the weather is serving.
This leave in conditioner is made from all the good stuff. Its all natural with no harsh chemicals at all. The leave in contains some natural hair essential oils like coconut, jojoba, and grapeseed. It also contains vegetable glycerin which is another great moisturizer for dry hair and it is water based. I just discovered (I so wasn’t paying attention) my hair loves water. I must say as soon as I apply this product my hair is super soft and detangling is a breeze. Bonus, it can also be used during the week to refresh a twist or braid out.
Bottomline, we must prepare our hair to look fab for summer and this is definitely on the winter hair care list. Go get some. You’re detangling process will be cut in half and your hair will thank you. I know you’re thankful so, you’re welcome. lol
PS- This is my first time using a Karen’s Body Beautiful product and I likey, so now I must explore the line.
My cheeks and I made essence.com again today. Wow 2 weeks in a row. Thanks @inhershoesblog for always including me in the fab festivities. Xo #beauty #fashion #naturalhair #instagood #brooklyngirlsrock
The weather is going to have to change because this hair can’t fit under a hat. And I pinned it up to take away some volume. Its still huge #bighairdontcare #naturalhair #beauty #instagood
Natural Hair on The Corner- Miss Jessies Super Sweetback Treatment (Winter Hair Care)
So the lovely ladies over at Miss Jessies has done it again. I love the Super Sweetback Treatment. Its a deep conditioner that has my hair absolutely soft and smelling oh so sweet. No, like seriously, its been 3 days since I used it and I can still smell the fragrance in my hair. Its not a harsh or overbearing smell. Its a little yummy. Someone will want to snuggle close and its cold as hell in NYC right now so that may be a goal of yours.
Anyway, the temperatures outside are harsh and you need to make sure your hair is as strong as possible. You want to combat dryness and make sure there’s no breakage from your winter accessories or just plain ole neglect. Go out and grab this. I think you’ll enjoy it.
After trying different designs I settled for this. Used nail fraud decals, Forever 21 emerald green. #nails #beauty #emerald #coloroftheyesr #fashion @shamberry_
