2. The Miss 'Happy' Headed Pageant! Dec.10th at 3:30pm. Yes, I'm a lover of pageants. :D I loved participating in pageants when I was younger. It helped me immensely in getting over my shyness & having more self-confidence. I'm the woman that looks at the Ms. America, Ms. USA, etc. pageants every year...and i get MAD if I miss them. This pageant is such a great way for natural girls to embrace their natural beauty. And to boot, Aevin Dugas, Guinness Record holder for the 'Largest Afro', will be emceeing the pageant!
 3. 2 words: Fashion shows. Nzuri has partnered with Macy's to bring you 2 fashion shows: "Fashion 2 Fro Fix" & "Fabulous Fashions 4 Over 40." Nothing like seeing a cool fashion show! And after finding this dress for $9, I'm now a fan of Macys. My sister is proud. lol

4. Felicia Leatherwood, Jill Scott's hairstylist, will be in the house teaching her infamous "Loving Your Hair with Natural Care: The Felecia Leatherwood Experience" workshop.

5. Best Kept Afro & Best Looking Locs Contest. Now ya'll know it's no secret that my go-to style is the 'fro. It's one of the biggest reasons I went be able to rock the biggest 'fro possible. :D I was already trying to achieve that with the braidouts I did on relaxed hair.
