The event was held at Dazzling Diva Day Spa which is such a great place to hold an event. The spa even offered our attendees discounted “Prissy Manis” the day of the event.
Each of the guest where greeted at their table with a mini breakfast and a “Breakfast At Tiffany” style gift bag, which included black sunglasses, pearls and a tiara.
We had young Aaliyah from A Touch of Warmth read “I Love Me And My BIG HAIR!” which lead into her speaking to her peers about why it's important to love yourself and why being different is ok.
I Love ME! Ambassadors in attendance lead the group in reciting the I Love ME! Pledge and EDEN BodyWorks gift bags where handed to each of the kids. Each child received an 8oz jar of the new EDEN Kids Berry Curly Creme.
Poet & Author Valerie Smith, conducted our workshop for the day. The workshop consisted of the kids picking positive words out of a bag and describing what they meant in relation to being beautiful from the inside. The kids used those words, and some of their own, to create poems on “why they are beautiful”. Each child was provided with a mirror which they glued their poems to. Everyone had a chance to recite their poem to the group.
We ended with our “Don't Judge A Book By It's Cover.” Reminding kids that what matters is what is on the inside. We wrapped a variety of books as “tiffany gifts” and all that was visible was a typed description of the book. After each child had a book, the kids opened them all at the same time, sharing what they had chosen to read.
And of course, what's an I Love ME! event without a photo-op!
