Hey Girl
I am so mad that Iwasn't able to make the show!
Anyhow thanks for sharing all the lovely pics!

Take Care!

Quietspirit said...

It looks like you had a wonderful time in Atlanta. It makes me want to go to the next natural hair show there. Your locks are gorgeous and just growing so nicely. You should think about joining us in October for the Philly Lock Conference.

Goodnapps said...

Muslimahlocs - Thank you so much! I think that was my first time wearing blue eyeshadow. I probably won't be making the homecoming this year. I'll have to see how things work out for next year.

Sistalocd - Thank you so much. I don't wear make up at all so it was good for me to step outside of my "normal" self. It's good to do that every now and then. Break up the monotony.

Quietspirit - I had a wonderful time in Atlanta. I would definitely go back. Thanks so much for the lovely compliments. If all goes well, I would definitely consider coming to Philly. I have not been there either.

Naturally Sophia said...

I am beyond disappointed that I missed you. We were probably standing near each other. On Monday I was there for 4 hours and Sunday also. Are you coming to the Philly Loc Conference?

BTW, your hair and make-up are beautiful.

Docs Locs said...

Hey Goodnapps,

You really look glam! I was there Sunday for a couple of hours - had a great time watching the demonstations

QueenLi said...

next time I attend a Meet and Greet, {or another hair show}, I gotta get some make-up! It's been a long time since I took a glam-pic

:)
Take Care~ {and nice meeting you, your mom, and Tequila}

Meikmeika said...

Love your up-do and make-up, especially the blue eye shadow!! Your locks are looking great as ever and growing so quickly!

Glad you had a good time with your mom!!!

shavonne said...

Your hair is too cute! Krystl's hair is cute too!

Goodnapps said...

Sophia - Me too. I'm pretty sure for the competition we were probably right near each other. I will definitely consider the Philly loc conference but it's too soon to know for sure right now.

Docs locs - why thank you so much. I was there all day pretty much on Sunday. Some vendors weren't even set up yet. But I definitely enjoyed the experience.

Queenli - I feel you girl. I think now I am ready for an official photo shoot.

Meikmeika - Thank you so much hon. If I find myself in your neck of the woods, I will have to drop you a line.

Shavonne - Thank you so much. Golden's hair is absolutely stunning.

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I'm so bummed I missed you when you came to Atlanta. I wasn't able to attend the Spring Sisterlocks meetup after all. I did meet Paulette the next day though. Your hair looks fab and sounds like you had a great time in Atlanta. Hopefully, we'll meet next time.

Carmen - Well you are quite welcome. I'm glad to know you find it useful. I use to be so fascinated seeing folks with 2 and 3 yr locks and then learning how they started. I said to myself, I know other newbies can benefit from my filing system.

QueenLi said...

Okay girlfriend.... I could not wait until AUG. so I got my *UpDates* on my blog now!

Take care~

Linda said...

Girl, you were rockin' that updo!! Both you and your mom's locks are looking fantastic. I loved the "glam" look. It looks as if you had a great time in Atlanta. We need to get our Cleveland group together soon.
