This year, I attended my first Afro Hair and Beauty Live London.
One will think: with me wearing Afro hair, I will be all over these type of events.
The truth is: Yes, I like my hair Afro or any other Afro hairstyle; but I am just not a hair girl. I do a hairstyle I like, I stick to it. Or I use a good product, I stick to it. I am much more adventurous with fashion and jewelry.

So, I was pleased to be invited by the organizer of the show I met earlier that month at the Screen Nation Awards. As it meant, time or me to discover new products.
The event spammed over 2 days, but I only attended the first day.
The Afro Hair and Beauty Live London had: The fashion & Lifestyle exhibitors section
Among which I had the pleasure to catch up with many brands I have worked with before.
The area was a buzz with a mix of upcoming and established designers displaying their latest collections. So, if one visitor was looking for unique pieces and accessories, it was the perfect place.
I also met up with Tahlia Gray, creator of SheerChemistry. With who I have also worked with in the past on her brand commercial.
She is just everything Afrochic stands for. Then, top it off, I got offered 2 pairs of Sheer Chemistry tights. Can’t wait to wear them soon.

Stage Show and Competition
There were two fashion shows each day from established and upcoming designers. And the designers showcasing also had exclusive pieces, available to purchase on their stalls in the fashion area.
Then, I met with Diana Dahlia, a radio personality I recently co-hosted Happy Days, a radio show on Behind The groove Radio. ( Listen HERE)
Some of you might have had a peek on my Instagram, But your girl A.K.A me has been doing radio too. Woohoo!!!
