Kickin' It: LoveBrownSugar 3 Year Anniversary Event

Last night I had the time of my life at the LoveBrownSugar 3 Year Anniversary celebration. I waited until the end of summer to throw my shindig because I wanted all the details to be just right. And I'm so happy I did - we had a blast!

As you may recall, I posted the invite last week and I posted it for you all FIRST because I really wanted to finally be able to meet some of you lovelies. I was overwhelmed with the response. So many of you came out to celebrate this big day with me, I really felt loved.

With LoveBrownSugar readers & supporters
With Janel Martinez (Black Enterprise) and Kisha Timothy (LBS Assistant)
Some of the guys!
With Taiia Harris & Paula T. Renfroe of Juicy Magazine
DJ Carver The Great
I have to give a huge shoutout to my amazing sponsors. INGLOT Cosmetics gave us an awesome venue to party in. 1800 Coconut Tequila sponsored the yummy drinks. Tonnie's Minis (my favorite cupcake shop!) sponsored the sweets, Nail Taxi kept the ladies in style with free mini manicures, and Shea Moisture served as our title sponsor (love their products)!
The cocktails were delicious. 1800 Coconut Tequila cooked up a specialty drink called the "LoveBrownSugar Sunrise" - delish!

Our nail technician from Nail Taxi, Arielle, did an amazing job with everyone's manis!

The girls had a good time playing dress-up in the INGLOT cosmetics. I'm obsessed with their lipstick.

Special thanks also to Stella & Dot for giving the perfect complimentary jewelry for my ASOS dress. Last night I wore their Tempest Necklace, the Secret Garden cuff, and their Renegade Cluster ring.

I'll have even more footage of the event for you guys to see next week. Until then, check out the complete photo album from the event at LoveBrownSugar on Facebook!
