Last night we attended the Keziah Connections event, this was the very first Keziah event attended by Sincerely Shug. Unsure of what to expect during the social event, I was keen to see what would happen and to ntwork with other WoC bloggers and to hear more about the brand Fashion Fair. The event Keziah Connections event was in collaboration with Fashion Fair and for this occasion I decided to bring a special guest with me, my mother- the woman who introduced me to the world of makeup.
The Keziah Connections event was hosted at Fashion Fair HQ kicking off at 6pm. Arriving to the event we was greeted by the amazing Natalie (BeautyPulseLondon) and was guided into the room with all the other brown beauties. The room buzzing with laughter, smiles and conversation, the atmosphere was relaxed and inviting. The beginning of the evening was full of networking, munching on food that was served, popping champagne bottles, and having the chance to get your makeup and nails done whilst you waited. All in the name of Black History Month and celebrating/promoting the work us ladies do, as well as inspiring and being inspired by all the women in the room. 
Mingling in the event gave me the perfect opportunity to meet new people and be re-connected with old faces. I managed to have a good catch up with bae Jo from PatentPurpleLife and finally met the beautiful Christine from YvesChild in the flesh! The evening continued with a talk led by the inspiring Connie Jackson herself, educating us all on the history of Fashion Fair, the journey that the brand has been on till now and what their goals are for the future, it is a speech that I wont forget easily, especially these few words....
"We are not an after-thought"

"We have a superior product"
Woc shouldn't ever be an after thought, we are a consumer just like everyone else, but if no one wants our custom then a brand like Fashion Fair can, one that cares for their customers, and understands the pigmentation and varying shades women of colour have. Affordable, Unique and one of the Superior brands in the business. 
The night was truly amazing and I cannot wait for the next one Natalie, and thank you so much Fashion Fair for mine and my mothers goodies!
