Natural Hair Academy 2015
UK to Paris | NHA 2015!
Once again, I booked Eurostar tickets to escape to the Continent...well, across the Channel to France. Don't I sound glamorous!
This year's event was great, as usual! However, I did miscalculate and showed up rather late in the day...like 4pm, by the time I had trekked across town to the venue! On the upside, the Metro was free for the weekend again - thank you, Pollution! Whoops!
I managed to catch the end of Carol's Daughter's panel with HairCrush (Chime Edwards) and Naptural85. It was serendipitous that I met the lovely ladies, Vinna Best (officiallyNatural.com), Sian (@IamSiantheBaker), Amanda (@BeautyinBlack247) and Pree (@Miss_Sugar_Sweet)! We saw a presentation by Anthony Dickey of Hair Rules before the piece de resistance: MyNaturalSistas!
They all looked so good and their talks were Uh-MAZING! And what better way to follow this by having Soul Food at an all-you-can-eat restaurant called "Mama Jackson" in the middle of Paris! lol!
On the Sunday, I did the usual amount of sightseeing (pictures below) and again managed to bump into Vinna! Even managed a 10K run through Paris in the morning! (Yep, I'm obsessed with hair, running and baking). Oh and I'm getting a selfie-stick - those things looked very useful for being seen in your sightseeing pictures..lol!
It was a lovely weekend which I want to keep recurring in my calendar in the following years, God-willing.
Did you make it over to Paris this year? If so, do share your stories (and blog links) below!

I blog about life, running and of course, hair! I'm an Altra "Team Red" Sponsored Athlete, so I will do the occasional running shoe or gadget review.
