Ok so to bring you up to speed, if you don’t follow me on Instagram, I started a campaign called #iamlettingGO after the realization that so many people were going through life transitions. It was a platform for people to share their beautiful struggles and anything they were letting go of in order to move forward with any aspirations they've given up on.
Within a month, over 500 participated, shared and encouraged each other not to give up. I was shocked at the response! So I felt it was only right to share my personal story (which I did through video) about my transition which included shaving off my signature shoulder length curls. But more than anything I wanted to meet everyone in person !
The first 25 guests were gifted with full sized products from Crème of Nature’s Straight from Eden which is their new Natural Oil-Infused hair care line powered by coconut, avocado and olive oils all of which are essential for healthy hair.
We also handed out tags to everyone and asked them to share something they were “letting go” of. Keep scrolling and you’ll see why……
The crowd and the energy was just magnificent!
Everyone asked great questions!
Throughout the night, we gathered each guest’s tag that participated and attached them to balloons...
To let them all go into the beautiful New York City sky.
