Theodore Vernell – Sleep Cap & Shower Cap Review

I rock rough and tough with my afro puff! ✊🏾Y’all know this is one of my favorite quick and easy hairstyles but protecting it overnight can be quite the challenge! 🤦🏽‍♀️When you puff gets big, a regular ole bonnet just won’t do!

@ProtectYourMane provided me their products to try which offer custom fit satin-lined sleep caps and shower caps for hair of all lengths. 💁🏽‍♀️The key to their unique product is the adjustable ring and elastic band which allows you to customize the fit for your head, hair length and preference of wearing the cap up off of your neck or lower – you choose!

It covers your whole head so your hair is protected and edges aren’t neglected! 🎤#Bars

Check out my full review below!

 

🤔How do you protect your mane overnight?

Black Beauty Festival in Chicago

This weekend I had the chance to attend the Black Beauty Festival at Victory Gardens Biograph Theatre which showcased Black-owned and operated beauty companies in the Chicagoland area. I love supporting black-owned companies and this gave me the opportunity to do just that!

I’ve heard great reviews about Eden Body Works from Beauty Blogger Ebony of brownskinbeautiful.com and Tierra, Instagram: black girl.slays. Thus, I was delighted to see them at the event and samples of their products in the goodie bag!

 

 

 

 

Shea Body Works was another vendor in which I was able to support as they have a Happy Hand and Feet Balm which is made with all natural and oils such as Shea Butter,
Coconut Oil, Avocado oil, Almond Oil, Jojoba Oil and Seed Oil. My youngest son is battling a dry skin spell which we are hoping is jus baby eczema and will try this out for his skin. I will keep you all posted on progress!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Chi Town Naturals (can y’all guess where this brand is from? 😉) is another local brand with an owner whose personality is so inviting and engaging!

Her passion exuded as she discussed her brand, her mission and how the company all started. Did I mention, she is an Aries ♈ like yours truly? 💁🏽‍♀️ I am excited to try her line of natural homemade organic products! Her motto, Natural hair requires natural products!” spoke to me!

Ruby & Owner of Chi Town Naturals, Rashunah “Shawnee” Williams

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

They offered mimosas to sip while you shopped. Y’all know I love me a good mimosa! 🥂

 Vendors

There were other vendors in attendance from hair care, clothing, authors and more! See the videos below!

 

It was so much fun attending the event to shop with the vendors but also had a chance to meet up with some Black Bloggers United Chicago Chapter members!

A special thank you to Black Bloggers United for and Victory Gardens for the complimentary tickets to attend this amazing event! We need more opportunities to connect with black businesses and support each other! It’s not enough to just talk about it, we need to do it!

Preparation is key! 💻✅

Up this Sunday morning on one! ⠀

When I am the absolute most productive is when I properly plan for my week! “Wingin’ it” just does not work for a playa! (Unless it’s Harold’s – mild sauce, salt and pepper with a pepper on the side! 👀🍗) I HAVE to be consistent with my regiments and routines in order to be successful. ⠀

Do I love spontaneity? Absolutely! BUT when it comes to being able to reach goals, you need a plan! I wrote about this on my blog before: “If you fail to plan, you plan to fail!”⠀

I am focusing on continuing to be dedicated to a healthy lifestyle which includes working out 3 times a week at minimum, meal prepping for the entire week and drinking 100oz of water a day. In addition, I will constanly be create content for you all to enjoy!

 

What are your goals for the week? Comment below! ⠀
