I kicked off the World Natural Hair Show weekend on Thursday at the Jane Carter & Whole Foods event.  Upon entry we received gift bags with large samples of the Jane Carter products along with a coupon for 20% off a purchase.  The event began with the beautiful Jane Carter discussing each of the products in her line.  Jane's talk was followed by  a demo by the lovely ladies of Tress Talk.  Each of the ladies had a model who's hair had been previously styled with various products in the line and we were told how the looks were achieved.  Kim, of Tress Talk gave an on site demo of one of her famous Pompadour styles which I was fortunate enough to receive here.  Jane and the ladies fielded questions from the audience and afterward they were sweet enough to hang around for photo ops :).  This was such a fun event-filled weekend!  I'll have another World Natural Hair Show weekend post on Wednesday...

Last week, in spite of being a little under the weather, I attended Oh Nikka's tweet up and it was just what the doctor ordered!  I sipped sangria's and got a manicure at Polished Beauty Lounge while catching up with my favorite bloggers and meeting some new ones.  I got my nails painted a really pretty peach color.  I posted pics on instagram (follow me at TiaLou75).  I was super excited to meet Lynn of LA Lynn's and Tami of Talking With Tami after connecting with them on Twitter! I also met Shalawn, founder of Lamik Cosmetics, which will be debuting in Macy's very soon!!! Polished Beauty Lounge is located at West Village Place in Smyrna next to Tags Boutique, owned by Kandi of The Real Housewives of Atlanta.  I didn't have time to shop so I definitely have to go back to check out Tags.  Be sure to visit Polished Beauty Lounge for some pampering and a super chic atmosphere.  Happy Monday!

*Disclaimer* Used my old Nikon Cool pix  club cam so I apologize about the resolution of the photos as well as the lack thereof (some were too fuzzy to post)
On Sunday, I attended a Pretty Party hosted by Tiffini Gatlin at Conversation Pieces by Nikki Darling & Co., a cute little boutique located in downtown Atlanta. The party featured fabulous jewelry from Stella & Dot along with samples of delicious SoRen Tea.  The Vanilla Rouge decaf is amazing! It was great to sip tea, mingle with fellow bloggers and fashionistas, shop, and chat about everything from fashion to natural hair.  I also had the pleasure of meeting Mary Chatman, the founder of Black Bride.

Marlissa, the boutique owner, is such a sweetie and her boutique has some really cute items.  There's a skirt there that I'm absolutely obsessed with!  Desperately trying to stay on budget :-\.  Have a great day!  See ya Friday...
