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.

Fashion on The Corner- Easing Into Spring
So a few weeks ago the ground hog came out of the hole and said there will be an early spring. I guess that’s what happened. I really don’t understand the whole groundhog situation but anything that even hints at this winter being over is alright in my book. So since spring or spring like weather will arrive in about four weeks, I say we welcome it by incorporating a few bright pieces to our looks.
In September, the spring/summer 2013 runway shows had large amounts of eye popping color. Everything from light pastel hues to bold neons floated down the catwalk. While the temps are still frigid here in NYC one might not feel the need to add color to their everyday wear. I suggest starting small and easing into springish outfits.
The collage above shows a few pieces I think would be perfect to rock now before flowers start to bloom and temps reach the 60s and 70s. Try adding color with a pair of earrings, a new nail polish, a cocktail ring, stackable bangles or place a bright short skirt over your opague tights. Either way you go, you’ll look great and at the very least brighten the mood in the office.
Let me know how you all are preparing for spring. I know I can’t wait.
Style on The Corner- It’s me Brandis
My friend took a few pics of me when I met her in the city last week. Had to get my colored jeans in before the weather got cold. Although I think with a nice sweater and some booties these pants can transition to fall.

PS- The denim sash worn is my rendition of a belt. With such a small waist, I always have to take in my pants. The sash serves as my belt because just like pants can’t fit my waist regular belts can’t either. I happen to like the sash more anyway. I have a few colors. And a crisp white shirt works great all year around. Its a wardrobe staple, this one is from Club Monaco and has a great shape. Its not boxy like some made by other brands.
These flats are too cute!
Take Note- Chaka Khan on American Idol
She is 59 years young and has been in the music game for along as we can remember but Chaka is not on everyone’s mind for her voice or her hits right now. Her 60 pound weight loss is truly amazing and she let it all hang out in that catsuit. She looked better in her catsuit than Fantasia in hers and she’s more than twice her age. If this isn’t motivation to get up, get healthy and bust a squat then idk what is.
Kanye’s shoes. I think they’re nice. Not 6 grand nice but they’re unique. The beading is outstanding.

This needs to be printed and placed above my couch and I want that green jumper right now. (3rd girl from the right)
