I attended the ORS Olive Oil hosted Dinner Party celebrating The 11th Anniversary of the Godmother of Brown Beauty Blogging Patrice Grell Yursik better known as Afrobella.  She said she started blogging to fill a void and to celebrate the inner and outer beauty of women all shades of beautiful.  Her award-winning blog shines a loving light on natural hair and the wonderfully wide range of gorgeous skin tones and sizes women come in and has been featured in Essence, Ebony, and Glamour.  In 2011 Afrobella partnered with MAC Cosmetics to create her own custom lipglass called “All Of My Purple Life,” part of the Bloggers’ Obsession collection.  With all her continued success Patrice always displays humbleness and class.  I’m personally lucky to know such a beautiful person.  Many including myself look at her as blog goals.  Congratulations on 11 years of doing what you love!!

The blogiversary dinner was simply beautiful.  The #NoStereotypes themed dinner featured one-on-one conversation with Shawn Tollerson, CEO of Namaste Laboratories and Afrobella.  They shared stories and experiences on black beauty.   Afrobella spoke on how she uses her platform to defy stereotypes of beauty.  As guests, we were encouraged to embrace who they are, their sense of style and self-expression and share it unapologetically with the world.

The event took place at Blanc Gallery Chicago in Chicago’s Bronzeville neighborhood with dinner provided by Chef Cliff Rome of Rome’s Joy Catering.   A special tribute performance to guests was provided by Gifted Keys and music by DJ MJTheBeautifulBeat!  All with the “Farewell 44” artwork as a backdrop.

 

 

ORS continues to innovate new products for the versatile woman who is comfortable in her own skin and defines her own style through self-expression.  At the dinner, ORS unveiled the ‘first look’ of their new refresh packaging and reformulated products which include Sheen Spray and its Edge Control.  The new products will be available in stores like Walgreens, Target, and Sally Beauty in February/March of 2018.

 

Did you know ORS has a trademark on the term Edge Control?
