So last night was EPIC. I’m talking ‘everything possibly imaginable, cuz’ type EPIC, I mean, ‘every photo is cute’ type EPIC, or better yet, I mean ‘envious people were instantly concerned‘, type EPIC. No matter the anagram… (I plan on copyrighting them all, lol), we had a GREAT night last night.  NY, we always do it big!

HUGE thanks to Dark & Lovely and Marsha Ambrosius for a fabulous time.  With free Dark & Lovely products, styling demonstrations, stunning models, Amanda Seales on the wheels of steel, an open bar and a house full of gorgeous curlies, good times were had by all!  I remember looking up and everyone in the venue was dancing to old school MJ.  Priceless.

The homie Chrisette Michele was supposed to be in attendance, she writes:

‘You have no idea how badly I wanted to be with you and the curly girls last night. I was rushed to the hospital and had an emergency surgery. I even asked the doctor… can I go to the Curly event and come back? 

Guess what??? His assistant was like “A CURLY NIKKI EVENT?” I was like YES GIRL!! 

Need a tutorial on hospital hair stat! Giiiiirl this “non-silk” pillow? Momma had to bring me some coconut oil!’

Peep the view!-  

We were there to celebrate the launch of the new Dark&Lovely ‘Au Naturale’ line.  The first relaxer company went natural, y’all! Their line is geared toward defrizzing, defining and elongating.  Have you tried it yet? Share below!

The venue was PACKED. #AllTheWayLive
