Wow what a day!!!!
The event is known to attract a great crowd and my fellow exhibitors, workshop hosts, speakers and staff all complimented the event perfectly.
I didn’t get to listen to many of the talks as I was busy on my stall signing books and lured to the raw foods on sale from Simply ROAR, a new up and coming raw food business, whose raw desert had me wanting to fight the brother who bought the last 2 when I went up for seconds, and I was dreaming about how they could have made their raw lasagne during my afternoon nap today (no word of a lie!).
Attending and exhibiting at events with 5 young children is always a challenge, even when your have an assistant to help you all day, but for the first time ever, I was amazed at the constant stream of workshops and talks just for children they could participate in, from making raw foods with Sister In The Raw , to making their own dolls with Rita Kappia from Creative Arts Development, to watching the ‘Happy To Be Nappy and Other Stories Of Me” film by Gold Onyx, and walking round the event in a conga line with Dwayne Patrick from the I Can Project.
I have to say an extra special thank you to my assistant for the day Merissa from Naturally Simple Haircare for being wonderful , hubby and our children for being so lovely and of course Debrose for her commitment to hosting top class events that bring our community together and keep the black pound and group economics strong.
I didn’t get to take nearly enough pictures, but here are a few from the day:
