On Saturday 9th August 2014 my girl FroGirl Ginny organised and hosted an amazing FroDay at Hyde Park, London. I managed to show this Queen some colossal LOVE at her Meet & Greet, an afternoon full of fun, beautiful people, networking, games and MUCH MORE! The weather was lush, it was astonishing and lovely to see so many naturalistas supporting one another, having a great time with nothing but pure GOOD vibes. It was lovely being able to catch up with many familiar faces and meeting new inspirational and encouraging people, beautiful people full of love and light. It was an absolute pleasure showing Ginny and her vision so much love and support, witnessing all her hard work and efforts come to life.

It was very liberating being in a sound place where being natural was the ‘norm’ Ginny I commend you for all your hard work and efforts to create something so beautiful and have us be involved in such a beautiful and uplifting movement. The day consisted of love and laughter, ice-breakers, games, live singing performances, talks by the likes of Curlture UK and Natural Hair Daily who spoke about natural hair, their platforms, the importance of natural hair to them and capturing the essence of embracing your natural self.

The event was an absolute success! I loved engaging with such cultural and vibrant individuals. Oh Let me not forget I had the pleasure of meeting the CUTEST Naturalista, Farouk James and his beautiful and supportive mother! Farouk soon became the star of the day with his gorgeous, voluminous & BOUNCY Fro and bold personality. His presence lit up that entire afternoon! Such an amazing beautiful spirited little munchkin, full of energy and lets not forget GORGEOUS! Mama Farouk I commend you, you are equally as amazing for all the effort, love and hard work you put into Farouk and his hair *applauds* LOVE your personality, you have a beautiful heart and genuine interest in the natural hair community. Bonnie It was a pleasure meeting you and your buba Farouk James! xx

This event was truly amazing as it was founded on the basis of uniting many naturalistas in the UK, allowing us the opportunity to meet and greet one another, mingle and network whilst having a BLAST doing so. One of the better parts of the event (for myself) was getting to meet and connect with likeminded individuals, meeting lovely bloggers and vloggers. With the likes of Natural Hair Daily, UkNaturals, Curls Au Naturel, CurltureUK, Media Crazy, Yolandaaas ad many more. I met a lot of OUTSTANDING and wonderful people, engaged in many thought provoking discussions, was mesmerized by the many different Kinky Curly Coily Crowns I came across, admired the many unique attires worn and FIERCELY WERRKKEDD by many of the Nubian Queens present at the event. To everyone who made my day amazing thank you for saying hello and making my afternoon that extra bit special!
