Yesterday's Curlfest was a beautiful site to see. The lovely ladies of Curly Girl Collective hosted hundreds of natural haired beauties in Brooklyn's Prospect Park to celebrate all things naturally beautiful. 

The event had a killer dj, multiple food trucks and a host of amazing local vendors. The weather was gorgeous and the vibe was great! 

Couldn't make the event? I've got you covered. Check out photo's from the event below.

New Restaurant Alert: The Edge Harlem

Located at 101 Edgecomb Ave, The Edge is not the newest player on the block but has certainly been making their rounds on social media lately by driving in a diverse audience with their offerings weekly.

I came across The Edge on the explore page on instagram when I saw a delicious plate of ackee and saltfish as a brunch item on someones feed. I was immediately intrigued because not many resturants locally serve Jamaica's national dish for brunch. I clicked on the image and immediately began my research.

Come to find out, The Edge has been apart of the neighborhood for about a year now! A gem right under my nose. My boyfriend and I decided to check out the local spot for dinner last night and we were blown away. The food was fantastic and the service was wonderful. It was everything and more that you desire from a lovely neighborhood restaurant.

The Edge describes themselves as casual eatery with flavors of Jamaica and England with a little New York attitude. Love it!

Happy Hour Specials from 4-8 was a plus :)

Live Music by Lauren Henderson & Greg Rugg

Last nights special was a creamy, delicious seafood pasta filled with mussels, jumbo shrimp & scallops

Salmon Burger with a side of plantains & mixed greens

I will most definitely be back to visit The Edge very soon, possibly for brunch this weekend!

"A Mind Is..." UNCF Hampton's Summer Benefit

On Saturday, August 22nd, I had the pleasure of attending UNCF's Hampton's Summer Benefit.

It was an exciting evening in celebration of education  at the home of Nancy Silberkleit in East Hampton, NY. Proceeds from the evening benefited UNCF’s educational initiatives and play a key role in making sure deserving students get the education they need to get to and through college.

I was invited to the event to participate as a model in the Spring 2016 presentation of designer & stylist Carlton Jones. Honoree's of the event included Robert F. Smith, Founder, Chairman and CEO of Vista Equity Partners, Dr. Mary Schmidt Campbell, President of Spelman College, and Michaela Angela Davis, Editorial Brand Director Centric TV/Image Activist three individuals who continue to make extraordinary contributions in the field of education..

The event was amazing to say the least and definitely hit a sweet spot in heart because before attending the University of Florida, I was a Gates Millennium Scholarship recipient. The scholarship provided me with a full ride to any four year institution of my choice, I'm forever grateful for the opportunity to have received that scholarship and was ecstatic to participate in a night of raising funds for future well deserving minority college students.

Check out photos & video of the event below!
