DivaGals attended the inaugural IMPACT GARDEN event at Madison Square Garden, helping to support people around the world by shopping its sustainable fashion marketplace. Presented by Rebuild Globally, Modavanti, The Cordes Foundation, Intandem Creatives and 3V Creative, there was footwear, bags, jewelry and bath products made in Haiti, India and Africa, allowing their communities to earn a living wage through their creative endeavors. We love our Wildlife Works Handmade Organic Soap, made by deaf women in Kenya. We also attended the Global Fashion Exchange’s clothing swap, where we exchanged a barely-used dress (it still had its tags) for a beautiful one-shoulder number from Ali Ro. Interested in attending your own clothing swap? Check out GlobalFashionExchange.org to see when its coming to a town near you.

LIGHT. A resident of Harlem, Teri Johnson began making candles in her kitchen with fragrances that were reminiscent of her travels and her hometown. She eventually turned her passion into a thriving business, Harlem Candle Co. Each candle is infused with fragrance notes that create a perfect harmony of top, middle and base notes that sing, dance and celebrate the old and new Harlem Renaissance. As a company, we value and pay homage to how Harlem has blessed the world with cultural luminaries, creative vision and style in the story of America.

SMOOTH. Luxury Gal just finished home styling my natural hair. What made the difference this time? I smoothed my front edges with Creme of Nature Argan Oil from Morocco “Perfect Edges” Extra Hold. It controls and holds down edges while moisturizing and adding Exotic Shine™ to the hair. There is no flaking or that ashy residue, just smooth wavy edges.

SEE. There’s a new rom-com out, The Perfect Match. Terrence J plays Charlie, a charming playboy who doesn’t believe in serious relationships. His best friends bet him that if he commits to one woman for one month, he’s bound to fall in love. And that woman just happens to be played by Diddy‘s real-life GF Cassie Ventura! Now in theaters.
