Hello there, thanks for visiting my blog. So, a bit about me; I'm Natalie and I am a Christian, committed to living by God's Word each and every day. I am a proud mother to three beautiful children and creator of The Accidental Mogul - a blog designed to channel my ambitious juices and unleash the writer within! This blog is a reflection of me, so it contains a little bit of everything. I’ll be documenting my walk with my saviour Jesus Christ, as well as my natural hair journey, I'll be writing thought provoking posts, product reviews, hosting giveaway's and of course offering up a generous dollop of everyday mummy musings. I like to hear uplifting and motivational stories, so I’ll be interviewing inspirational people when I can to encourage and inspire others. Sharing experiences is what makes life beautiful, so let's share.

Beautiful Textures UK launch

I've been so busy going to all these fabulous events, I almost forgot about the Beautiful Textures launch I was lucky enough to attend at the end of May after winning a pair of tickets on Crystal Afro's United Kinkdom blog.

The Beautiful textures UK launch was an invite only affair so I was chuffed to bits to win the tickets especially as this was the first hair event I have attended. Let me tell you, it did not disappoint. 

I don't have any pics because I was too busy eating (all drinks and canapés were on the house. It really was a swanky affair) and chatting to all the lovely bloggers and vloggers I met, but the event sponsored by the lovely Lukwesa of Gidore was amazing.

As soon as my sister and I entered the VIP room at Bar Soho we were handed goodie bags which contained Beautiful Textures tangle taming leave in conditioner and curl control defining pudding, along with shampoo sachet samplers and a Beautiful Textures t-shirt. We were like kids in a candy store gasping with delight and grinning from ear to ear.

Marketing Guru Charlene Bastien gave a detailed run down on the product lines and rather impressively each product within the Beautiful Textures range does not exceed £5.00. Now that was really good to hear, especially since many natural hair products are rather on the pricey side due to the small size of the businesses behind them. Beautiful Textures comes from the same company that produces well established brands such as QP Elasta and Keracare, so it stands to reason that they are able to sell their products for that little bit cheaper.

Celebrity stylist Felicia Leatherwood shared hair advice and also demonstrated how the products work by using them on a selection of models with varying hair textures. So far I have used the tangle taming leave in conditioner on both of my daughters and I am very pleased with the results. With my second daughter, it definitely enhances her curl pattern, with my eldest it has really nourished her hair and made detangling easier.

The event was so good and I'm so glad I got to go. The natural hair scene is really gathering pace in the UK and it's great to witness and be a part of it. I aim to keep my twitter feedFacebook page and blog updated with events I hear about in the future, so be sure to keep a look out as they are definitely worth attending.
