So you guys know how much I STAN for the Motown era, right? I’m always down for a throwback moment and my taste in clothing is normally a mix of modern trends and retro 60′s or 70′s pieces. I’m also a die-hard Diana Ross fan (hence my obsession with her delightful spawn Tracee Ellis Ross).
The entire Motown era fascinates me beyond belief. Movies like Dreamgirls, The Jackson Five and Sparkle? I live for them. For those of you like me, I’ve got news that will make you dance (like bands)…
Motown The Musical is coming to life in early 2013! They will be kicking off the show on Broadway in NYC staring in March 2013. The show will chart Motown founder Berry Gordy’s journey from featherweight boxer to heavyweight music mogul, launching the careers of music greats like Diana Ross, Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder, Smokey Robinson, Marvin Gaye and more.
I can only imagine the faboosh retro fashions they’re working on for costume production. And that hair will surely be laid. Can’t wait!

Anyone else hyped about this? Who’s your favorite Motown artist?
Yesterday, I had the pleasure of attending a press preview of Optimum Salon Care’s new product launch. They unveiled their newest product line called Miracle Oil, which has a blend of 6 natural oils like jojoba, argan, coconut, sunflower, apricot & avocado. The event took place at 404 NYC and their newest brand ambassador Tracee Ellis Ross (my fave!) was on hand, swearing by their new product. I adore her. Here’s a snapshot of the event:
The Optimum Care Miracle Oil collection is a product line for both natural-haired and relaxed divas alike. The collection includes a 6-in-1 Miracle Elixir, $8.99 (which is Tracee’s go-to product), a Hair Creme $5.99, and a Hair Moisturizer $5.99.
So I met my hair icon Ms. Tracee Ellis Ross once again! The Queen of perfect curls and red lips. Remember when I posted about meeting her for the first time at that “Reed Between The Lines” Premiere Party last October? (Same night I had my Chance Encounter With Kanye?) She remembered me! I almost died when she told me my face looked familiar. We’re practically BFF now. Mmhmm yes, we are. Be jealous.
Tracee showed up with her dedicated natural hairstylist extraordinaire Chuck Amos. He’s a riot!
Natural-hair blogger and expert Curly Nikki was a co-host. She looked amazing per usual, with a sophisticated high puff and a beautifully color-blocked ensemble. Love her!
This face is always beat! Love her red lip
moment – gorgeous!

There were product demonstrations by the brand managers, on how the product sinks into the hair for optimum moisture without the “grease”.
Tracee even did her own product demonstration! About the 6-in-1 Miracle Oil Elixir, Tracee stated “There’s 6 different oils and like 7 different uses for this product. And it’s only $8.99 guys. That’s like $1.25 per use. You can’t lose!”
These finger foods were everything. You guys know I like to eat. Sadly, I could only have like 2 of the things offered. Sigh, this Whole 30 plan is killing me! (That’s another post altogether).
Overall it was an awesome event! Tracee asserted that she wouldn’t endorse a product that she doesn’t believe in. And I believe her. Hence, I’m planning to try these products out soon and I have a feeling they will be amazing.
