I had the pleasure and opportunity to attend the the 2nd annual event hosted by YouTube natural hair gurus Vaughn and Meechy of The Monroe Sisters. The event featured an expo where vendors showcased their unique product, a very chic and stylish pop up shop featuring clothing from The Monroe Sister's boutique, an open bar, a blogger panel section (which I was on) sponsored by Cantu Beauty and a fabulous fashion show--which highlighted nine designers.
The event was one of a kind and well organized. Not to mention, the event was sold out! I attended the event with a few of my fellow bloggers AskProy of www.steelfeatherlaceelephant.com; Melissa of www.melissachanel.com and Amanda of www.theamandag.com. We had a ton of fun riding the bus exploring the city and networking. Here are a few of the pics I snapped at the event. Enjoy!

The entire event was Absolutely Fabulous! I would definitely attend again if given the opportunity. I'm thankful Vaughn and Meechy invited me to be a speaker on the blogger panel for Cantu Beauty! I definitely don't take opportunities like that for granted ^_^ The Industry Standard Natural Hair Beauty and Fashion show is an annual event for them; so if you have the opportunity to attend next year you should definitely NOT miss it!!
Until next time...smooches!
