Ubiquitous Expo Recap

Happy Friday Cuties,

I told you I had a busy weekend Saturday was Diner En Blanc and I covered Ubiquitous on Sunday.  Ubiquitous is a full two day event but I couldn’t make it out on Saturday.  So I had to max out my experience on Sunday. Let me tell you something, life was given. I’ll tell you why in a minute.

I attended this event as press and received complimentary admission.

Ubiquitos is a lot of things, it isn’t your typical expo and I think that is why it is so popular.  Ubiquitos has celebrities, entertainers, panelists, workshops, vendors and a bit of fitness. I told you they had a little bit of everything. On top of that they had giveaways, tutorials and you could even get your hair and or makeup done.

Sunday was like an episode of Oprah’s Super Soul Sunday. Yolanda Adams and Maurette Brown Clark were there. OH EM GEE!!!!

ENTERTAINMENT:

When you see Yolanda Adams name you know it is going to be serious.

Comedian, Marcus D. Wiley @marcusdwiley

You always hear laughter is good for the soul but when Marcus took the stage it was an understatement. This man is so freaking hilarious. My stomach was hurting and my eye were running. He is a Christian comedian but he is real and you can relate to the things he is saving. Classic!

ORS @orshaircare

ORS was the one booth I wanted to visit the most. I’ve been a fan of their conditioner packet since 2005; it feels and smells amazing. I’ve been rocking with it all these years later. Before I came to the show I had to was my Little Cutie’s hair and at least blow it out. I used the ORS Olive Oil shampoo and let me just tell you how it changed our entire life. Her hair was so freaking soft and it had a natural shine I’ve never seen it have. Routine switch! I will be updating her Haircare Routine ASAP.

ORS, Olive Oil Hues

Then I get there and find out ORS now has hair color. SHUT YOUR MOUTH! They must’ve known my color needs a retouching up terribly. Color is generally harsh on our hair but ORS has added a vitamin boost to their coloring system. YES LORD!
