Texas Black Expo 2011


This weekend I had the pleasure of attending the Texas Black Expo with fellow bloggers K.D. from Hair Gurl, Luci Lui from Strictli Hair and future blogger Shandha.  The Expo is an annual event with the goal of creating awareness of individuals and business within the black community.  The main theme for this year’s event was celebrating natural hair. The two day event consisted of seminars, vendors, and speakers that specialized in natural hair care. I was able to catch up with blogger Tamera of Natural Hair Rules who hosted a natural hair meet up. It was great to see all the natural hair beauties rockin their hair.

If you live in Houston or just stopping by to visit and need to get your “Do” did check out the master stylist Christie L. She was nice enough to let us see her skills in action.




Christie L did her hair….Isn’t she fabulous?  And Yes, that is her hair. She is natural!  Check out their website to make an appointment at Crème de -la Crème.  

My good friend Jcil, was a vendor at the event. She is the designer behind Jcil White Designs.  Check out her website for some fabulous earrings!   
 

These hand painted bags are off the chain and are definitely a conversation piece.  Make sure to check out the website Susej Designs. Dionne Green is the talented fashion illustrator and designer of these bags.

Of course I couldn’t leave the expo without making a purchase. Check out my purse. Isn’t she gorgeous?  Its hand painted from Susej Designs. Love it!

A number of celebrities attended the Texas Black Expo.  I got to catch up with my new friend J. Anthony Brown. He walked up while we’re taking pictures and of course I let him jump in my picture.
 
Overall the expo was a blast. I truly enjoyed the event.  

What I Wore

  9. I believe the body is a living organism in constant balance.
    This balance requires intervention at the right time and area to ensure
    the body's most efficient and healthiest state.
