Primping and Pampering for Little Lovely Ladies



From my estimates there were about 200 ladies who came together to celebrate each other and enjoy a little primping and pampering, Lord knows we deserve it.  It was a really beautiful sight to see. Special thanks to POYED and Pretty for inviting me to cover this amazing event. I can’t wait for the second annual expo next year.
