#theminimeexperience

Having created TreasureTress as a means of transforming the way natural women and girls explore new products, it wasn’t long before founder Jamelia Donaldson felt compelled to engage with women and girls not only online but offline too – beyond her monthly box.

With the idea for The Teen Experience, Jamelia approached Simone Powderly – mental hair activist, model and blogger to be a part of it.

Simone fell in love with the concept and together they joined forces to launch The Teen Experience. A six-part series of: 2 Brunches, 4 Days of Workshops and 1 Pop-up Beauty Expo/Store Party.

So far workshops have been hosted by London’s leading female bloggers, journalists, artists and influencers exploring a range of topics and performing a range of activities from goal setting, to vision boards and exploring the in’s and out’s of social media. The experience was designed to empower, educate and engage a fast-paced, social media savvy generation, and allow teens to build relationships with each other beyond their mobile phones and social media apps. For the first time ever Jamelia and Simone are switching things up, and making The Teen Experience suitable for a younger age group – Facilitating LLM – The Mini Me Experience
