Champagne, Cupcakes & Curltalk...The Birthday Edition!

Hello all!

We are finally in the position to divulge much-anticipated details of our 1st birthday bash, which we are throwing in conjunction with the ladies from Leave In The Kinks!

Date: Sunday 18th December
Venue: Colours In Africa, Musa Yar'Adua, Victoria Island, Lagos
Start time: 1pm
Entry: N1,000

We have planned a fun and interactive event also incorporating live demonstrations and product consultations. And while the main focus of the event will be a workshop covering a vast amount of information on natural hair care, maintenance, styling, etc, the event will be set up so that people can drop in and out, and visit the stalls all day.

This event is for naturals, transitioners, and the merely curious. We appreciate you all equally and hope you can all come down to celebrate with us.

Watch out for a number of giveaways throughout the day of Aubrey Organics and Giovanni products; Fizzy's accessories; signed copies of "London Life, Lagos Living", the new book by Bobo Omotayo; signed J'odie CDs, etc. And no 1st birthday party is complete without goodie bags to say thank you for coming!

Keep an eye out in the coming days for details of ticket outlets, vendors on the day, and exciting previews of the event.

Thanks ladies, we are so excited, and really looking forward to seeing you all there!

PS: We still have vendor slots available, so email me for information if you are interested in taking part. If you communicate your interest to me before Saturday 3rd December, we will still be able to include your name and logo on our marketing documentation.

First Birthday Celebration... with the ladies from LITK!


Hello all!

In this post, which I am ashamed to say I wrote 5 whole months ago, I mentioned we would be having a big first birthday bash and shop launch for the Kinky Apothecary.

Well, it was definitely worth the wait, because now we've got an awesome event planned in conjunction with the lovely ladies from one of our favourite blogs, Leave In The Kinks!

The event will take place on Sunday, December 18th, so hopefully not only the Lagos residents will be able to attend, but also those of you who will be back home for Christmas.

As always, our main focus will be on Curltalk: advice on maintaining natural hair, tips on regimes, product advice, understanding ingredients, hairstyle ideas, etc. We have also planned demonstrations, giveaways, and of course all attendees will leave with a goody bag.

There will be stalls selling not only hair products but also hair accessories, jewellery, handbags, and loads more, so this will be a great opportunity to do your last minute Christmas shopping.

Of course there will be Cupcakes, and what's a celebration without Champagne?

We are going to make sure this event is a blast, so put it in your diary now- Sunday, December 18th- and keep your eyes open for more details which I will be posting in the next few days.

If you are interested in being a vendor at this event, email me at, or send one to Miss Fizz from LITK, at or Hurry, as vendor spaces are limited!

Can't wait to see as many of you as possible!
