Natural Hair Congress Canada Recap (Part 1)!

 
Last weekend, I was graciously invited to attend the very first edition of Natural Hair Congress Canada (NHCC) in Montreal presented by Inhairitance Inc. and boyyyy was I glad to be there. This was quite the event and if you weren’t there, you definitely missed out so make sure to mark your calendar now for next year. There were some great speakers such as Audrey Davis-Savisothy, Nerissa Irving and Stacey McKenzie, for which I had the opportunity to interview (coming soon) and sooo many other wonderful people, talented artists, designers and entrepreneurs.

Rising Star: Tessanne Chin

Are you watching season 5 of The Voice? If so, then you experienced the beautiful voice of Jamaican-born Tessanne Chin.

Tessanne Chin is a Reggae fusion artist representing Team Adam this season and she is in the top 3 finale airing tonight at 9/8c on NBC.

Her rendition of Whitney Houston’s “I Have Nothing” was the perfect tribute to the late great legend.

Her fashion on the show has been on point too. Here are a few looks that I love:

Her work truly speaks for itself. I’m a witness to how good her masterpieces taste. I even do a little dance every time I take a bite. #heavenlymoments

It’s all about the cupcakes, cookies, cakes (even a Ferrero Rocher cake…one of my faves!)…I know! It sounds like heaven doesn’t it!? 😉

Just take a look at part of her amazing artwork below (drooling session may occur).
