Hey loves! I’ve been sitting on the news for a while but I’m super excited to announce that I will be making appearance at local Supercenters to help you get festival-ready during the Road to Essence at Walmart. You guys know that Essence Festival is one of my favorite events. I’ve been the last four years and each time I come away with a different, yet soul-fulfilling experience. And on top of that, you guys know that the Essence Magazine staff is officially family.


To celebrate, I’ll be traveling to New Orleans and Houston for three very special Beauty Carnival stops on the Road to Essence tour! Full schedule below:


New Orleans:

Saturday, June 24th – Walmart #1016 at 410 N Canal Blvd, Thibodaux, LA 70301 from 11:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.

Sunday, June 25th – Walmart #989 at 8912 Veterans Memorial Blvd, Metairie, LA 70003 from 11:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.


Friday, June 30th – Walmart #3584 at 5405 South Rice Ave, Houston, TX 77081 from 11:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.


If you’ve been following me on Instagram than you know I recently moved to the suburbs. That means I am closer to all things dope and accessible like Walmart. I have to confess that their beauty aisles are a daily obsession. There are so many #WalmartBeauty options that it’s really your duty to shop them. The best part of the Road to Essence is that they celebrate Walmart for the mega one-stop shop it is. How many times have you gone to Walmart for one thing and ended up with everything?! I go all the time and have absolutely no shame in filling up my cart to the max.

Road to Essence is bringing a vibrant Beauty Carnival to life in select markets. Walmart has partnered with some of our favorite beauty brands for an informative and fun day leading up to the Essence Festival. Beauty brands (like Cantu, Crème of Nature, Taliah Waajid, Palmer’s, The Mane Choice, African Pride and Black Radiance) will be sharing samples, beauty consultations and giving away prizes for an afternoon of Walmart Beauty and entertainment. I’ll be there to amplify your experience with giggles and smiles and I’ll even dish some tips on my favorite beauty brands.

But most importantly we will be together at last! 

You have to join me for all the fun so that we can get Essence Festival ready together (I will not take no for an answer)! Leave me a comment and let me know if you will be in the area on any of those dates. I wanna meet you!
