About Me

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.

Curls unleashed - The lavish suite

This is my second attempt at writing this post, after my first perfectly good post vanished into thin air when I tried to add an image *head bowed, shoulders slumped in near defeat*. I was about to give up because I was soooo peeved, but I thought to myself, 'No. I will NOT let technological mishaps get the better of me', so after going away and returning a day later I discovered my ‘lost’ post hiding within the blogger app after I randomly downloaded it onto my iPhone.

Crazy right?? There I was thinking my post had been lost forever and up it crops in the most unexpected of places….just goes to show if you revisit something with a clear and calm head, things can turn around - well you get what I mean.

Anyway here goes take two, or maybe here comes my recovered and slightly tweaked post…….don't worry if you're slightly lost and confused at this point. I know I am...lol

So on Thursday night I attended the Curls Unleashed Lavish Suite event at TheMilk bar @ grace near Piccadilly Circus. The event was sponsored by the lovely Lukwesa of Gidore.

The goodie bags were brilliant and I have a whole host of sulphate free shampoos, leave in conditioners, moisturisers and gels to try from the Curls Unleashed range. I can not wait. (I would have taken a photo, but I'm feeling lazy, I will endeavour to do so in a future post). I really want to try and achieve a successful braid out. I'm growing sick of the 'mum bun', so I have been on the hunt for a product that will define my braid out curls and waves and minimise the fluff and frizz. It'll be interesting to use the products on my girls too and of course my little man as his little 'fro is growing a treat these days. Bless him.

The Curls Unleashed team were brilliant. They were really friendly and welcoming and there was a lot of great information on hand from scalp analysis to advice on common hair issues. I really wanted to get a scalp analysis but the place was heaving. I think there were about 150 ladies and a smattering of gents in attendance so interest was high and queues were long. That didn't matter though as I bumped into a whole host of lovely bloggers from the hair and beauty scene. Nicola from
Belle Noir Bride , Michelle from KurlsKoilsKinks , Fiona from Love your Tresses , Nyla from Kulchicbeauty . I could go on but I’m sure you get the picture. The place was filled with wall to wall beauties wanting to support and be involved with the natural hair and beauty community. The atmosphere was abuzz.

I was impressed to see a nail bar available for you to get your nails done professionally using the prettiest of polishes and an expert was on hand to apply eyelash extensions which looked amazingly natural. There was entertainment in the form of Omar, yes the Omar that sings 'Nothing like this'. Plenty of reminiscing about my teens when that tune came on. I'm getting old.

There was plenty of food and dancing, plus a give away which involved a dance off. The DJ dropped some big classics and the crowd got down. It really was laughs a plenty. Black beauty & hair magazine were also in attendance and they were on the look out for bloggers and vloggers to feature in their publication. I'm not quite sure my blog fits the bill , but I cheekily handed my business card anyway, a girl's got to try right??

So that was my Thursday evening, I hope to try the products soon and report back. Got lots going on at the moment, not to mention the Curvolution's Curls dayout event at The Crown Plaza hotel at Docklands on Saturday. That is sure to be a good one. Watch this space to find out how I got on. In the meantime I'll leave you with some pics from Thursday night's shenanigans....
