To celebrate the launch of the new Coconut Shea collection, EDEN BodyWorks has hosted a series of events entitled “Style with EDEN.” Infused with pure coconut oil and shea butter, the Coconut Shea product line, promises to change the way you manage your hair. I had the pleasure of attending the event along with many other style mavens in the Chicago area. The event was held at the hip, south loop venue, City Point Loft. A major highlight of the evening was the panel discussion, a fusion if you will, of hair and fashion.
Kim Coles at the 2013 Black Women’s Expo in Chicago. If you don’t know Kim Coles, you must have been living under a rock for the past two decades. She is an actress and comedian who starred on the hit 90s African-American sitcom, Living Single for five seasons. And now, you can find that show in syndication all hours of the day and night. What I really enjoyed about Ms. Coles’ presentation was that she was so open. She gave us a bit of her life story and how she, after leaving that show, hit sort of a low place. Perhaps “low place” is not the right phrase. Maybe we say, she hit a place where she had to redefine and rediscover who she was. Kim took us down memory lane on her journey to self-discovery. She took us through some of the highs and lows of her life and shared how she overcame them. She had us laughing the entire time (even on the sad parts).
|Angela Lee, Founder Makeup and Martinis Chicago|
Outstanding! If I only had one word to describe to the events hosted by Makeup and Martinis Chicago, that would be it. Founder, Angela Lee always puts her best foot forward and strives to create an experience that will be inspiring, uplifting and make you feel like number one. The December 2012 Beauty Exchange networking event was held at the Renaissance Chicago Downtown Hotel. It featured an exclusive panel of experts in beauty, hair, fashion, finance, fitness and life coaching. Everyone knows it takes a team to create your best self. Attendees had the opportunity to ask questions, mingle, sip martinis and network. Radio personality, Bionce Foxx was on hand to keep things moving along as MC. Yes, it was a night to remember. And, the guest speaker of the night, Oprah’s former makeup artist of 21 years, Mr. Reggie Wells did not disappoint.
