I attended the Charleston Natural Hair expo on June 22, 2013 with 5 of my friends. We decided to make it a road trip and make the 7 hr drive there from Virginia. I suggest anytime you can do a roadtrip with a few of your girlfriends, do it! It's so much fun; and you get to split the expenses amongst all of you!
Anywho, we loaded up my 7-passenger truck and headed out. The first night, Friday June 21 we met some of the bloggers (who would be speaking on the panel the next day) at a restaurant/bar named Tsunami.

The next day was the expo and it was really nice! There was a number of great vendors, good food, a blogger panel to answer questions and even makeup demonstrations given by Alex Butler (@themuaalex).
Here's what I wore; something comfy!

That night, there was an all-white soiree' at the same location of the expo. There was a cash bar, VIP section and the decor was super glam!! Take a look...
My dress came from janenorman.co.uk
Rochelle of @blackonyx77 My first time meeting her--such a sweetie!
And finally, Sunday we meet with most of the bloggers again before heading out to a place called Magnolia's. This place had the most amazing dish--Seafood over grits which consisted of lobster, scallion, and shrimp over grits. If you are ever in Charleston, SC make sure you visit there ;)
So, bottom line, if you ever get a chance to attend the Charleston Natural Hair expo hosted by Ebbie of @naturallyejhalo (MrsNaturallyEJHalo on Youtube) make sure you attend. You won't regret it!!
