Happy Monday! Hope you had a great weekend! When my friend Manna Kadar invited me to attend Miss CA USA in Long Beach, I jumped at the chance. I have never attended a beauty pageant and was excited at the chance.  I took my Serene Sky fashion team member Yu and we sat with SleekHair friends Sarah and Joan.

In my humble opinion, beauty pageants get a bad rap for being superficial. However, upon hearing the interviews of the contestants, I was amazed at how ambitious and intelligent the women were. One woman was a double major in mechanical engineering and journalism. Another one was into supporting charity for special needs children. It made me think about the term "beauty and brains". I definitely can see that with these gorgeous women. I applaud them for working so hard to get to the Miss CA pageant and hope they continue their educational and extracurricular activities.
