Happy Hump Day!!

I'm excited to give you all a recap of all that went down at TUM 2011! Keep reading for all the great details!

So when I arrived at the Civic Center in Silver Spring it was just an empty room that in a matter of hours, was transformed into a buzzing marketplace filled with vendors from all categories! There were vendors for literally EVERYthing from skin care, hair extensions, wedding planners, photographers, clothing, jewelry, headpieces, and event designers! From what I witnessed it was such an unique event, I've not been to anything like that within the African community. I was just happy to be a part of it and I pray that it gets bigger and better each time because from what I saw everyone that was there was LOVING it! I could not keep my eyes in one place I had to get my shop on!

Here are some of the pics we took!

Raves and Reviews from Vendors and Guests:

"Absolutely worth it! Fantastic event and definitely worth it. Sorrela is all smilesssss" -Sorella (Vendor)

"It was my very first event and I had a blast even though I wished we had more time. The vendors were amazing as well. It was great" -Simply Beautiful Creations (Vendor)

"I think the concept of TUM was edgy, creative, but most of all classic. A lot of time and hardwork was put into the showcase and that was evident in the final product. Definitely excited about the next event" -Lara Akinrinade (Guest)

"TUM DC was a great platform for vendors and service providers to network and showcase thier services. BuxomDivaGlam was glad to be a part of it, and we look forward to next year" -BuxomDivaGlam (Vendor)

Great review!! We loved showcased BCG and the other wonderful TUM participants. I was personally blown away by BCG's Showcase, and loved the fact that you had very distinct looks, the "blinged" out centerpiece and the floral tower...both gorgeous...loved it!
