FLOWERBOMBE MAKEUP AND COCKTAIL

It was a pleasure for Keyezer to be in attendance of Flowerbombe Makeup and Cocktail event on March 30th at Cocoa Bloom located at 11 Irwin Ave in Toronto. The lovely, Thea Mitchell, was present to educate the group of ladies on beauty tips. Flowerbombe CEO, Chae Bennet, keep the audience engaged with splendid appetizers and a comfortable cocktail party.  Shadon volunteered as the model for Thea to put her magic touches together. From talking about the lasts trends for Spring/Summer2013 and what colours complement dark skinned clients, Thea was a joy to listen and learn new beauty tricks. Facials were conducted by Dianna, owner of Love Incs, and the ladies learned the importance of moisturizing and daily refreshing of the face in preparation for great summer skin. Thea will be launching a new lipstick collection called “Dancehall”. Her products are fun to wear and are unique with lipstick names such as “Tek Dat” and “Purple Kartel”. It is no wonder I personally purchased a wide selection of her beautiful items and recommend her to other ladies looking for something out of the norm.

BLACK HISTORY MONTH: Harriet Tubman

Harriet Tubman became famous as a “conductor” on the Underground Railroad during the turbulent 1850s. Born a slave on Maryland’s eastern shore, she endured the harsh existence of a field hand, including brutal beatings. In 1849 she fled slavery, leaving her husband and family behind in order to escape. Despite a bounty on her head, she returned to the South at least 19 times to lead her family and hundreds of other slaves to freedom via the Underground Railroad. Tubman also served as a scout, spy and nurse during the Civil War.
After the war, Tubman returned to Auburn, New York, and continued to help blacks forge new lives in freedom. She cared for her parents and other needy relatives, turning her residence into the Home for Indigent and Aged Negroes. Lack of money continued to be a pressing problem, and she financed the home by selling copies of her biography and giving speeches. Her most memorable appearance was at the organizing meeting of the National Association of Colored Women in 1896 in Washington, D.C.   Two generations came together to celebrate the strength of black women and to continue their struggle for a life of dignity and respect. Harriet Tubman, the oldest member present, was the embodiment of their strength and their struggle.
