and due to some unforeseen circumstances I got to be on the Q&A panel at the end of the day with some amazing ladies.

Fatou @blackbeautybag, Wunmi @ItsWITJ, Ronke @ondolady and Segun @lotionpotionsme

We spoke about the pro and cons of natural products, and the needs of the black consumer and had some really interesting questions from the audience around self esteem and imagery in magazines.

The event was brilliantly organised, the venue was excellent and the energy in the rooms was positive and supportive.  Huge congratulations to Wunmi and on successful first show… cant wait to see what do next year!
