This past summer, I had the privilege of attending the Blissful CURLS Blogger Cruise in NYC. This event entailed an all-inclusive yacht cruise on the Hudson and East River featuring some of your FAVE natural hair & beauty vloggers/bloggers such as Naptural85, TarenGuy, KlassyKinks, Jenell B. Stewart and so many more! Essence Magazine was also in attendance to capture moments from this amazing event!

CEO/Founder of CURLS Mahisha Dellinger’s personal note to all attendees of the Blissful CURLS Blogger Cruise NYC.
This event was organized and hosted by Julian of Bella Kinks. Julian’s bold and no holds bar personality helped the crowd to kick back and relax while humble and accessible CEO Mahisha Dellinger made the crowd feel at home for the duration of the cruise. Mahisha shared her back story and journey to success which started with some trials and tribulations. However, those trials and tribulations have molded her into the successful entrepreneur she is today. Mahisha also gave the audience tips on networking, building your brand, blogging and so much more! She mingled with attendees individually while attendees were also able to mingle and take photos with each other.

I was able to finally meet some of my favorite bloggers/vloggers such as Naptural85, ManeMoves, HeyGorJess, Taralindaaa, WonderCurl, TarenGuy, ClothesConscience, and ShineStruck. I was also able to mingle with some up and coming bloggers/vloggers along with fellow naturalistas! Lastly, I decided to take photos while viewing some absolutely breathtaking views of the Brooklyn Bridge, Statue of Liberty and lower Manhattan. I hope you enjoyed my event recap and feel free to check out my photos from the Blissful CURLS Tour NYC below!
