What is your mission?
Chic Therapy is an online store that offers eclectic and fun African textile accessories. We incorporate traditional African fabric with others and create pieces that fit the contemporary lifestyle. It is a celebration of beauty and our vision is to fuse the vivaciousness and eccentricity of African prints into basic, ready to wear pieces.
Where do you see your businesses in 1 year? 2 years?
Right now, I am making plans to diversify and metamorphose into something bigger. In two years, I want to have broadened my demographics and brand and I want to be an established fashion house.
Who is your target audience?
Chic Therapy primarily targets women age 18-35. However, our audience includes anyone that loves unique and quirky fashion.
What products do you offer?
My handmade products include necklaces, earrings, brooches, bangles, hair accessories, prêt-à-porter ankara skirts. We also carry vintage apparel.
What first sparked your interest in the fashion and design industry?
I naturally developed an interest in fashion because I was constantly surrounded by flamboyant and beautifully dressed people while growing up in Nigeria. When, I was younger my mom also had a fashion/tailoring shop and this also heightened my interest.

Hey guys, happy Tuesday. The first small business highlight in the giveaway series is Obia Natural Hair Care.The brain child of Obia Ewah, a US based Nigerian with a dual degree in both Chemistry and Biology, Obia natural hair care is a brand of natural hair products made from pH balanced, non-toxic, and herbal based products.
According to Obia, she decided to use her expertise as a chemist to create products for herself. Somewhere along the line, it metamorphosed into a bigger venture and Obia Natural Hair care was born. Currently, Obia offer products for men and women and these include His Shampoo Bar, Curl Moisture Cream Curl Enhancing Custard, Curl Hydration Spray, Coconut Shea Shampoo Bar, just to mention a few.
|Obia, The founder|
I recently mentioned that I cut my natural hair due to my inability to tend to it daily, well I think Obia may just have solved the problem with their daily curl hydration spray. Once,my hair grows to a decent length, I definitely will be trying out this product.
As part of my 3rd anniversary/small business giveaway, Obia natural hair care will be gifting one lucky person items (Curl Moisture Cream 4oz,Curl Hydration Spray 8oz,Curl Enhancing Custard 12oz & Coconut Shea Shampoo Bar 4oz) from their hair care range.

Hi there! Just thought I’d drop a quick post. One of the bffs was here two weekends ago. We hadn’t seen each other in over 4 years, so it was great catching up. On Sunday, we went sightseeing, had lunch and just generally Relaxed.It was a chilled outing and this is what I wore...
…and oh, I am so sorry for not hosting the giveaway this week. I really do not have a solid excuse, so I am not even going to lie. The giveaway is now scheduled for Monday …I promise!!!

Hey Chicas! Howdy, It's been a while, hasn't it? I haven't posted much because I have not had a camera. I am getting a free upgrade from Bestbuy and the new camera gets in today. Whoop!!!!
So in this post, I mentioned that I cut my hair, and everyone I know has been going "why on earth did you cut your hair". Well, when I went natural 4 years ago I was excited and I took really great care of my hair. I was watching natural YouTube vloggers, trying different products, learning the natural hair lingo and all that good stuff. After a while, I got tired of tending to my hair and I lost interest. I know natural hair gurus recommend spritzing the hair with water and using natural oils daily.For me, the daily nurturing was way too tasking (In Sweet Brown's voice, "aint nobody got time fo dat") . In short, I neglected my hair and it resulted in breakage. Anyway, I cut my hair because it was unhealthy and I really wanted to start afresh. This time around, I am going to find products that work for me and stick to a regiment. *Rant about hair over!
So my blog clocked 3 years April 13th and I will be having a giveaway on Monday, April 29th..YAY! This giveaway will be different as I will be partnering with some small business owners. Being a business owner, I though it'd be great to feature businesses owned by fellow black females. The giveaway will have a business focus and I will be interviewing each of the sponsors. Please visit the blog on Monday for more information.
What do guys think of my short hair?:-)
Happy hump day
