Tonight I went to the Night in Paris Hair Show. I’ve been to hair shows in the past, and it had been a while, so I was excited to attend.
The show was very interesting. It was held at the Columbia Metropolitain Convention Center. There were a lot of vendors and attendence was great. There was a lot going on though.
The show didn’t seem as organized as it should have been. The DJ had to start the music over for several different acts. We couldn’t hear the mic over the music. The lights kept turning on and off at the wrong time.
The motivational speaker had a great message, but the message was lost because people were looking for excitement not a business sermon. The barber competition was more exciting. I loved looking at the barbers create designs in under 14 mins.
Last night I went to 701 Whaley For EdVenture’s Girl’s Night Out! It was so much fun. I met fashion designer Chris Benz, who is extremely nice in person. I also saw a friend perform with Unbound Dance Company, and saw the designer’s Spring 2012 collection. If you want to meet him too, don’t fret. He will be at Coplon’s on 4825 Forest Drive for a trunk show tomorrow from 10-6 and on Saturday from 10-3.
Last night I went downtown to A Devine Night Out. It was Columbia’s version of Fashions Night Out and I had a blast. Every store on Devine Street was open and full of people. Shop owners served drinks and snacks as shoppers perused racks of clothes, and restaurants stayed open to provide people with warm food. I wish I had stopped in one of those restaurants. Everyone looked so warm and toasty, but I stuck to the shops. There was also a nice raffle with great prizes from local spots. Continue Reading
Last night Eb and I went to the Nickelodeon for the Mad Men Finale party. It was a blast watching the show with everyone and screaming at the screen with everyone. It was amazing. The best part is that most of the people dressed the part as well. Check out the pics of these lovely folks. You may see a familiar face or two.
