The Smile Project!

Today I had the pleasure of attending the The Smile Project, a street carnival in DC. I won tickets from The Good Hair Blog. Not only does The Good Hair Blog give great natural hair care tips but Alex Elle, the blog’s founder, hosts great giveaways! This giveaway was on the blog’s Instagram. If you have an Instagram, make sure to follow The Good Hair Blog on there. The highlight of today for me was watching the Black Alley Band live! They’re an amazing band with an amazing lead singer Kacey! I have heard of the band before but I never listened to their music until today. Boy have I been missing Oh well, better late than never. I went to the carnival with my niece and brother. It was the perfect event for kids. Rock climbing, face painiting, moon bounces and rides! After 4pm, I saw a lot of young adults coming in. It became a young adult affair after 4pm, it looked fun but I was heading home with my brother & niece.  Today’s weather was everything, almost 90 degrees, I think it reached 90. Shorts in Fall <3!!! Coochie cutters is what I call ANYWHO,I really enjoyed myself today! I need to hang out in DC more often, there are so many fun events!!! It would be nice to be in the mix, while networking and mingling with my peers!
