Brown Girls are taking over the world! From the Miss USA stage to the CDFA awards they’re speaking up, speaking out, and celebrating themselves and one another. Christina created the #BrownGirlsLoveBrunch tour to give brown girls a chance to connect with and learn from one another in a social setting. After a successful three city tour in 2015 Christina has continued her mission of encouraging and supporting her fellow entrepreneurs this year.
This is cause that is close to her heart. After all according to Forbes brown girls are “three to five times more likely to start a business than their white counterparts” if we can do all that on our own one imagine what we can accomplish by working together!

The next stop on the tour is the city of angels. Los Angeles’s #BrownGirlsLoveBrunch will be held at the beautiful Le Petit Paris.
Here attendees will receive an entree, bottomless mimosas, and a FREE swag bag full of fabulous goodies from our amazing sponsors like EDEN BodyWorks, Ouidad and Kinky Curly Yaki.
They will also participate in an intimate discussion about entrepreneurship, and brand management with Christina who will share her experiences on her seven year journey of converting LoveBrownSugar from a personal style blog into a thriving business.
The #BrownGirlsLove community is all about women and girls of color coming together on and offline. So whether you want to learn more about building a personal brand or you’re just getting started with the process of figuring out to turn your passion into your profession come out and connect with us at the very first BrownGirlsLoveBrunch in LA!
It’s official! The BrownGirlsLove Brunch tour is officially kicking off this month! I’m so excited to be starting the brunch tour with my Georgia peaches down in ATLANTA!
If you’ve been following our progress with BrownGirlsLove, you know that the brand started out as a grassroots IG page just promoting our power and beauty through social media. We wanted to create a space to celebrate the beauty of women of color. From that, we started promoting events that would encourage and inspire women to embrace their personal brands and also get information about how to develop a brand of their own.
Last year, we hosted three brunches in NYC, Philly and DC. And this year we’re headed to 5 cities to spread the BrownGirlsLove across the country. First stop – Atlanta!
Here are three quick reasons you should plan to be at BrownGirlsLove Brunch:
1. The Brown Girls: If there’s one thing we brown girls do well, it’s brunch! Come out to network with fellow go-getters, meet people in your city who are like-minded and learn about how you can connect with others who are going through some of the same things you probably are.
2. The Swag Bags: We have more sponsor announcements to come but for now our amazing sponsors include EDEN BodyWorks, Ouidad and Kinky Curly Yaki. All brands that each and every guest will get to sample at the event and some of whom will be sending guests home with FREE products!
3. The Advice: Part of every BrownGirlsLove Brunch is dedicated to us sharing our stories. I typically start out by sharing my personal story about my rise to full-time blogging status and important lessons I learned along the way. Then, I share the floor with special guests and attendees to have an open discussion about how we can all be better. It is always AMAZING. I promise you will leave feeling lifted.
I so hope to see some of you ATLiens down in Georgia next weekend.
