Hope you’re having a wonderful weekend. I recently attended my fist Natural Hair Event and actually it was THE first Natural Hair Event, here in Stockholm, Sweden…pretty exciting!!!
The event took place on April 16th from 6:00pm till 9:00 pm at an intimate Jamaican Restaurant called Jamrock. I had never been to this restaurant before and was highly impressed. It’s a beautiful restaurant with lovely ambiance, beautiful decor, great food and music. If you live in the area or if you ever get a chance to visit, I highly recommend.
The event was hosted by three Natural Hair Bloggers, Lydia of sonappyandkinky @sonappy_kinky, Nandi of hairofheritage @hairofheritage and Yaya of neoroots @neoroots. Nandi of hairofheritage is a Natural Hair Blogger well known for her efforts to promote beautiful curls in scandinavia.
The event started out with introductions, the attendees ordering food and everyone mingling and getting to know each other. Later on the hosts came up and went through the contents of the goody bags plus highlighting the sponsors of the event. Each of the attendees received a bag of goodies from the sponsors. There was also a competition and some of the attendees won some hair care prodcuts.
It was a well organized and lovely event, I was happy to meet other beautiful ladies here in Stockholm, who are also hair enthusiasts. Since it was the very first event, it was very small and intimate. There were probably about 30 people. The organizers definitely look forward to having more and more of these events and of course I look forward to participating.
Here are all the goodies we received from the event hosts and their sponsors.
