This time last weekend I was walking the aisles of the Black Women’s Expo and I had a wonderful time. I’ve met so many different empowered women and brands. The event was from Friday to Sunday at the McCormick Place. The place was full of celebrities, vendors, and freebies and many large trade show banner variations advertising the different businesses and brands attending. This year the expo celebrated its 20th year and the celebration was bigger and better. Check out some of the pictures from my weekend.
The Expo was filled with so much power and knowledge. I was really excited to be there.
I hung with so many great vendors. This was Anointed Wives Ministry CEO Felicia Houston and I.
My girl Author and Publisher Tamika Newhouse. We always have a good time when she is here.
Here I am hanging with ABC Newsman Hosea Sanders.
One of the booths at the Expo offered FREE Rapid HIV testing. I jumped at the chance to get checked out. There wasn’t a shot, just a mouth swab. Quick, easy, and pain free.
I had to grab a selfie with my girl Nikki from Nikki in the City blog. She is the sweetest.
The second day of the Expo some of my friends attended with me. Margo enjoyed the event as well.
When I tell you the Expo had everything…they really did. They even had Face painting for the kiddos. Although I didn’t bring Dereon with me. My niecey pooh Zarrie ventured out with her mom and I and she loved her Hello Kitty makeover.
I attended seminars with Biggest losers contestants and the exotic author Zane. Enjoyed live performances from many popular musical acts and a amazing dance act based off the Brazilian Carnival. BMOA passed out smoothie samples and handed free smoothie coupon out too. I think I walked off about 5 pounds the whole weekend. LOL. Overall I felt empowered and motivated to keep pushing towards my goal as a woman entrepreneur, wife, and a mom.
