Another swanky event during EssenceFest was the #NOLACrawl Style Suite, hosted by a quartet of beauty bloggers: Sekou of Simply Rides, Jessica of Glamazons Blog, Christina of Love Brown Sugar and Lexi of Lexi With The Curls:
Guests were treated to a light lunch, cocktails, complimentary manis, raffles for additional prizes and photo booths to capture the fun. I enjoyed meeting other members of #TeamNatural, and chatting with other beauty bloggers. Marvelling at how great my quick-draw mani looked?! Confession: I gave up manicures years ago. It was destroying my natural nail bed. This may make me change my mind, at least a few times a year 🙂
The suite’s sponsors were Beautiful Textures and Ford Motor Company. Ford encouraged all guests to test drive their latest models at the Convention Center and register to win a 2015 Mustang! All attendees received a deluxe gift bag that included Beautiful Textures’ Texture Manageability System, designed to temporarily straighten natural hair for up to three months.
