It is that time of the month again! The April Keziah CONNECTIONS evening is fast approaching and it would be great to see you there!
We will be having Networking drinks at the Tozi Bar,based at the Park Plaza Hotel in Victoria and it will be a chance for you to hear from a couple of brands and make those vital #brownbeauty business connections!
This is a really special evening for me as it is with great pleasure to announce that the key-note speaker on is Dija Ayodele
beauty writer and blogger, facialist and entrepreneur extraordinaire!
It is special because Dija and I connected very early on into my foray into the world of beauty blogging. nearly four years ago, initially via Twitter (she was amongst my first set of followers) and then we meet face to face after finding out we had a number of things in common!!
She is testament that relationships that are established via social media can really blossom into real, lasting connections!
She was also at the very FIRST Keziah CONNECTIONS event in 2012 – when it was still tiny seedling of an idea – and volunteered her time to make it the success that it was….
This!!! I am blessed beyond measure! You MUST attend the April @keziahCONNECTS to hear about Dija’s journey! I can guarantee that you can establish longlasting and fruitful relationships that will help you to soar!

Clipboard in hand, marking all the guests in, helping the networking to flow. Met and made dear friend and business contacts in @patentpurplelife @BrownBeautyTalk amongst other lovely ladies. It's been a trip. So clearly it means a lot to me to be giving the keynote talk on 28th April at the Park Plaza in Victoria. Details via @beautypulselondon. Hope to see all the old faces and connect with many more new ones. Xx" via @PhotoRepost_app
…and in that time she has become a mum, beauty writer for Psychologies and Spell magazines AND has launched her own business!!! Talk about being a SUPERWOMAN!
Dija has nearly ten years experience in the beauty industry. She studied at the London School of Beauty Therapy, where she qualified as a full complement beauty therapist. She is the in-house facialist for holistic skincare brand Weleda at ‘The Model Zone’ during the bi-annual London Fashion Week and she used this experience and expertise to launch her company, ‘Facials by Dija’ – a mobile beauty therapy company – in September last year. She is also working on a line of facial oils which are due to launch in the Autumn of this year, VERY EXCITING indeed!!
You will get the chance to hear all about her journey, how she manages to keep all of the ball in the air and how she turned her dreams into as reality!

…AND friends of Keziah CONNECTIONS Spell magazine and Sensationnel will be showcasing the latest collections in the range, including the new African Collection, which is ideal for a natural looking protective style!
Good morning and happy new week! Starting the new week with my new #crochetbraids courtesy of #brownbeauty entrepreneur Audrey aka @atouchprofessional using 6 packs of the @sensationneluk @spellmagazine #new Reggae Braid. Audrey was really impressed with the hair, it was pre seperated making the prep process of curling (hair culed with large perm rods) shorter. The texture is lovely and I love the finish! Both Audrey and Sensationnel will be at the next @keziahCONNECTS with @DijasWorld on the 28th April! You could win hair from @sensationneluk too! Book your ticket today!
