Yesterday we had the first ever Sthlm Loves Curls event in Stockholm, Sweden. The event was hosted by Yaya (NeoRoots), Lydia (Nappy & Kinky) & me (Nandi) at the Jamaican restaurant Jamrock in central Stockholm. Around 30 beautiful women and a man attended. Together we enjoyed great food, nice conversation and goodie bags. We also had a sponsored prizes for three giveaways.
Considering that this was the first event of it's kind in Sweden the turn out was amazing! We filled up the spaces in a few hours after announcing the event, and unfortunately not everyone on the waiting list got a spot.
The goodie bags: each attendee left with one
More goodie bag goodness
What was amazing was the positive vibe and the conversations that took place. There were naturalistas - new and old, transitioners, wig and weave wearers as well as relaxed ladies considering going natural. It was lovely to see that everyone felt welcome and was there to share their knowledge and learn from each other.
All and all 30 attendees filled the restaurant
Ready to order the food
Hopefully this event is the first of many Swedish events! So happy to see team natural Sweden finally coming together and growing as a community!
Thank you Jamrock for having us
and thank you to everyone who came out and made the event a great success!
