June was actually Lit, Tun Up, Fire…

There was a few firsts in June. I went to my first bloggers event – BLACK BRITISH BLOGGERS SOCIAL. It was an amazing event, so glad I went.
I also attended my first press day event. I was invited to the Big Hair No Care pop up store in Pop Brixton. Where Freddie hosted a great event introducing me, a selection of queens to her ethical afro textured clip ins.
At the end of June I was invited to Freddie Harrel‘s Big Hair No Care press release. Freddie has just opened up a pop up store at Pop Brixton, selling her ethical afro textured clip ins. As well as stocking some equally amazing products. Freddie wanted to create a space for black women to come and enjoy some positive vibes.
“Black women, here is your new den! Welcome to the Big Hair Squad” – Freddie Harrel
The BHNC store stocks Tammy’s Jim +Henry ‘Eight’ Leave In Conditioner, Ibi’s collection of plant based hair & skin care products The Afro Hair & Skin Co. A beautiful selection of books by Mark Lemon, starring mixed race children, and An A to Z book featuring Miles & Mia by Michaela Alexander. I have some more pictures from that evening on my instagram.
You can see what I thought of the clip-ins here.
It isn’t a monthly update if I don’t feature some of my current favourite tunes.
Wild Thoughts gets played everywhere, all of the time, but It’s definitely a summer tune.
The video to Jhene Aiko’s new song ‘While We’re Young’ is so cute. I love Jhene’s voice. (Currently bumpin’ to this whilst I finish up this post).
How was June for you? Lets all collectively pray for some consistent sunshine please….cheers 👍
