It’s a Natural Thang Fall/Winter Meet Up

Late November 2016 I attended the It’s a Natural Thang Fall/Winter Meet Up. I was glad to see my favorite vendors were there. I missed the headwrap workshop though. I did see the product demonstration for the Diversame drying tool. Diversame is a drying tool made for natural/afro textured, coiled and curly hair textures. It will hopefully be coming to the market sometime in 2017.

I was hoping Good Body Stuff had my Baby and Vanilla Sandalwood Buttas. That wasn’t the case. I decided to try the smaller size in the Candy and Egyptian Musk Buttas.fall-meetup

Sweethearted has some really cute designs. I knew ahead of time I wanted to purchase one of her t-shirts. The Give Me My Puffs beanie hat is just in time for the colder temperatures. fall-meetup2

The natural deodorant from D’s Natural Products has replaced my Aromaco from Lush Fresh Handmade Cosmetics. I had purchased the Blackseed Soap previously. This is the new and improved version of the soap. The Pink Sugar incense are my favorite.fall-meetup4

Nikki’s Magic Wand was also in attendance. I purchased a purple and a nude pink shade in the liquid matte lipsticks.fall-meetup6

Another successful It’s a Natural Thang Meet Up in the books. It felt great supporting local businesses.

Here are the complete contents of the NYX Box of Goodies Advent Calendar. This was a great way for me to try the Lip Lingerie Liquid Lipsticks and decide which shades to buy in the full sizes.
