Out & About; BLF at Dark and Lovely’s Au Naturale Launch!


Yesterday found me again at ARENA as I was invited to sample Dark and Lovely’s first foray into the natural hair care market- Au Naturale!

Author Curly Nikki and singer Marshia Ambrosius were on hand to celebrate the launch of the product line- which includes shampoo, conditioner and styling aids. Guests sampled the products at hair stations positioned throughout the venue,  shared their stories in a “confessional” booth, and took home products to try on their own.

I was joined by Tanya Sotillo of Luxe Colore and my partner-in-crime Tamara Walker of the Curvy Socialite.  Click on the gallery below for pictures of the event- and to find out more on Au Naturale, click HERE! Products start at $9.99 and are available now. Product review coming soon!!


Out & About; BLF at NYFW-JBURGOS Designs!

Ya Girl is on the scene at New York Fashion Week!

I had the pleasure of being invited to the fourth season of Concept Shows at the Metropolitan Pavilion. Concept brings together emerging designers who want to showcase their collections during fashion week and provides them with first class venues and production support. This year I chose to review Jennifer Burgos of JBURGOS Designs and it was quite the collection!

For the occasion I paired my favorite UNIQLO knit pants with a berry jacket from H & M and platform booties from Michael Antonio.

“Being a part of fashion week and sharing my mission to produce trendy, yet classy clothing to the fashionable and chic woman is amazing,” Said Ms. Burgos. Her line saw floaty fabrics paired with intricate detailing, as well as edgy-yet classy street-wear. I was very impressed by the scope and depth of her Fall Collection.
