Last weekend I had one of the best weekends ever at Essence Fest with My Black Is Beautiful, one of the official sponsors of the Beauty Expo! It was the perfect way to bring in the summer and celebrate the 4th of July!

My Black Is Beautiful celebrated 10 years of beautiful and went all out at their booth for their anniversary! They had the cutest booth at the Beauty Expo and so many people lined up just to get in! They had swag bags with products, full hair salon stations to get your hair styled, skin consultations, a step and repeat for photo ops, and DJ’s with great music!


My favorite part was the salon stations (of course, who doesn’t love to get pampered). The trained stylists dedicated time to styling anyone’s hair who came by! People loved it!

This is the line to get into the My Black is Beautiful booth, how crazy!

Throughout the course of the weekend I used a lot of My Black is Beautiful’s beauty hero products! They have so many that are great for your hair and skin.


I washed with the Herbal Essences Shampoo and conditioned with the Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Conditioner, which is a favorite and staple of mine! It literally does condition my hair in 3 mins and it makes it crazy soft. It has great slip so its perfect for detangling as well.

This is my hair after washing and conditioning with these products!

In addition to having loads of fun at the My Black is Beautiful Booth, I had such a great time enjoying the beautiful city of New Orleans for the first time.

It is filled with stunning pastel colored buildings and tall palm trees. Its a really fun place to explore. I can see why Essence has it there every year!

I loved being reunited with my insta-friends from all over the world! It was like a big reunion.

Of course, I had to go to the concerts too! My favorite was watching Kendrick Lamar and P. Diddy and Bad Boy perform. I think I slightly lost my voice after lol.
