Hi ladies!!

Over the weekend, I attended the Champagne & Cupcakes event at Karen’s Body Beautiful in Brooklyn, my old neighbourhood!!!  I am amazed at how the area has changed for the better.  Lots of cute shops, restaurants etc.  But I digress….

This was the bash celebrating the brand’s total makeover: the new packaging, the opening of the spa, the website relaunch, the store redesign.  I appreciate what Karen has done as a minority business owner, especially in this economy.  I like her products and I think she aims to bring out a quality, natural, handmade product that caters for people with naturally curly/kinky hair (even though anyone can use her products).

Anyway, I got there pretty late, but the place was still jumping…

DJ was mixing…

Her hair was cute!

Folks getting their makeup done…

KBB event

Manis in the back…..

Lots of China Glaze-d, funky manicures!

And people generally having fun.

I hung out with the super sweet Amina from Coup de Coeur, who I met at the Makeup Show and met Karen and her sister Grace.

Amina!

I think it was a great night, a great way to introduce others to the brand.  Fun times!

Anyone attended???
