East Coast Ladies?

Sorry for my international readers. This past week (or two) must have and will continue to be hard as I spread my wings over the east coast and pleasantly stumble across new opportunities.


tickets are only $15.00!

I am excited to let you all know about the Women of Color Expo coming up in less than two weeks. This will be an event for entertainment, education, and sales. There will be performers (who doesn’t love to discover new performers and they say told ya so when they shoot up in the charts?), speakers, and vendors. And! There will be a fashion show at the end!

Never having heard of an event such as this, I am giddy to be attending. Clearly y’all must understand by now that this post is to educate and invite everyone to go with me!

Once they wrap up the NJ, they are looking to take over the US by bringing the expo all around the nation, so have no fear – if you can’t come to it – it might come to you!
