Whitney and I were featured panelists for the event. We had a great time chatting, answering questions and encouraging everyone. I wish we had a video because you missed Monisha’s colorful tid bits about her new Vitamix and how she hasn’t bought hair products in 2 years thanks to me. We loved meeting our fellow bloggers in person as well.

After our speaking panel, a cute little girl with locs ran up to our booth. She was dying to take a photo with us.  After chatting with her and her mom, we she was the famous Tiana Parker. If you don’t know about her, check out Monisha’s post about 10 reasons why we love Miss Tiana

For dinner, I had some grilled shrimp on a bed of sauteed veggies and a side of steamed broccoli. It was pretty good!

For breakfast, we went to a local diner in Oklahoma. The diner was decked out for Halloween. I loved the Despicable Me Minion and the decorated pumpkin hanging out in the corner.

The ladies of Resilient Soul had gift baskets waiting for us in our hotel rooms.  The gift baskets contained tea, face masks, makeup wipes…useful things after a long drive.

We got loc socs in our baskets too! Since Whitney doesn’t have locs, she thought it would be a funny/great way to pineapple her curls at night. *Disclaimer* Only do this if you’re sleeping alone. This is not a good look in front of your man or even your friends lol!

 

Overall we had a great time attending the expo and loved meeting everyone!
