This past weekend I was lucky enough to be a hair model for my beautician at the Midwest Natural hair expo downtown. So last weekend I did some preparations myself with my nails and face, and then met up with my beautician on Friday to have my hair prepped for Saturday morning. I've been going to Daisha since I went natural and was excited to help her out with modeling Design Essential hair products that were used on my hair.

So after my hair was prepped I went to have my face prepped by Sid's Eyebrow Threading shop off of Delmar and Skinker. They did a great job and I was very pleased. Then I went to the nail salon and had my nails done. As long as I've been going there you would think I remember the name, but nope, I only remember it is directly across the street from the old Walmart off of Saint Charles Rock Road in St. Ann.
Afterwards I went to the Galleria and found a nice black top at New York and Company since I already had some black pallazzo pants. So fast forward to Saturday morning. I wake up and run a few errands before making my way to my destination. The Expo was held at the downtown Holiday Inn in the conference room area. I made sure to get there about 15 minutes early and decided to check out some of the vendors in the big conference area. Overall there around 20+ vendors but unfortunately I saw that some vendors had not shown up even by the time we left around 5pm.
Huge advantage of getting there early...seeing everything the vendors have to offer with minimum activity. So throughout the event that started at 11am I found some great items.

|what to do when you are waiting? Take a selfie of course.|
Once Daisha arrived she got to work on her models. There were four of us for Saturday and she had different ones for Sunday.
While we were there, Daisha was nice enough to treat us to lunch in the hotel and that was a hoot. We had such a great time I told her I would love to model for her again. Oh and I cannot forget my girl Thisha who met me up there and took pictures and videos of me.
Afterwards I went home and thought I would take a quick nap before trying to head out to Chesterfield to enjoy the Jazz and wine Festival........yea that nap quickly turned into a coma and I didn't wake up until 11:30pm. So yea....lolol.
So I decided I would take pictures of my treasures from the expo. Sorry pics look like they are in the shadows.

Overall I had a great time!!!! and I can't wait to check out future events.
