Blogging gives me the greatest pleasure, so I’m excited to be part of the We.Blog 2014 Editorial Board for the Natural Products Expo West, the leading trade show in the natural, organic and healthy products industry. The show attracts over 60,000 industry professionals and 3,000 exhibits to the Anaheim Convention Center. This is a retailer oriented expo, but I am super excited to learn and tell you all about new trends, new beauty products, and beauty from the inside out, and to write a lot of blog posts to bring you the best of the natural products industry --  and maybe get inspired and expand my entrepreneur side.

I am very excited to learn about new products and ingredients, but I can’t wait to see what Nubian Heritage (Booth #3516) has for us. They are part of the SheaMoisture family—I wonder if they will bring the  new makeup line?—and their products are amazing, especially the bath gels, soap and creams.

I will be covering the Beauty part of the expo, but I will make sure to sneak around the healthy eating booths “because curly girl eat!” You all know I am all about powerful beauty and healthy-hair foods, so I will be looking for that at the Expo; foods that nourish our hair from the inside out.

I am also excited to learn more about teen vitamins; I know my girl has specials need now that she is getting into those teen years, but I don’t know what is a safe for her.

There is so much to learn and meet that I may even go with comfy shoes … yeah, I know I should, but I look so cute in heels …
