Hey Beautiful People!
Tacha of TachaJ.com here to tell you all about an event Erin (@theesperanzamaria) and I created with you in mind. Before we jump in, let me introduce myself! By day, I work in International Development supporting government-funded projects around the globe. By night, I’m a Beauty and Lifestyle Blogger, creating community, connecting with women, and sharing my thoughts and experiences. The creative freedom blogging gives me is unmatched; I'm able to express my interests and share my personality in a way my full-time job just doesn't allow. And as a result of my blogging endeavors, Curl Talk DC was born.
What was initially an intimate brunch for 25 guests turned into a full-on event for over 50! We felt an enormous outpouring of support and while our expanded guest list was exciting, it also meant we had twice the expected workload. We were thrust right into the planning process and though we both have prior experience in event planning, nothing could have prepared us for coordinating our very own!
In the end, the rewards heavily outweighed the challenges. Curl Talk DC brought together women and men of all ages, backgrounds, and stages in their natural hair journey. It was a celebration of individuality, a refusal of the status quo, and provided space for community building and support.
