Curlfest 2017

Curlfest was lit AF this year. Maybe too lit lol. It was crowded. It was hot as hell. But it was still a whole lot of fun. Check out my pics and recap!

Naturalistas Curlfest 2017

Curlfest is a Natural Beauty Festival, and was held this past Saturday at Prospect Park in Brooklyn.  It was lit af this year. Maybe a little too lit lol. I don’t do well with huge crowds. So I went late in hopes that the crowd would lighten a bit. Nope. No luck. I arrived at 5pm and the crowd was still super thick. I managed to work my way through though to get some pics. Yes it was crowded. It was hot as hell. But it was still a whole lot of fun!

I visited some of the booths to see what special activities were going on. And to see what goodies they had for sale…

Curlfest 2017 Tropic Isle Booth

I attended the Tropic Isle Living Original Influencer Dinner the night before, so I knew they had the works planned. The theme was bringing the islands to Curlfest with fresh coconuts & sugarcane. Of course I missed it all, including the goodies for sale 🙁

My girls and I made a little picnic of the event and did some catching up.

We brought the kiddies to hang out as well. Here’s my son (didn’t he get big?!) and my little cousin Jo.

@afginc Caught this amazing shot of my girls and myself. We are actually all cousins except for one. But we love her like an honorary cousin so I’ll say we are all family. Don’t mind my resting b*tch face lol.

We had a ball and I can’t wait to do it again next year. I’ll be sure to come earlier so I won’t miss all of my Instagram Curlfriends again.

Did you go to Curlfest?

  1. You looked fab! That Gucci bag is everything. I have a similar one that I need to work back into regular rotation. I see a lot of products I’d like to try.

    1. Thank you so much. This bag is old lol. I bring it out every few years, but it’s on it’s last leg. I’m thinking of adding patches for a refresh!
