I am not swayed by swag (thought I very much appreciate it), so you can rest assured that my opinions are my own, as always.
Let me just state for the record that I’m a newbie to the Southern Women’s Show. I’ve heard about the event, but I’ve never taken the time to explore what it was all about. It’s crossed my mind that it might be a fun day out with the ladies (I mean, I’ve heard the radio ads – haven’t you?!), but I never captured that idea to make it a reality.
And now, on the other side of this sneak peek event, I am here to tell you that if the thought has crossed your mind, you should act on it. There’s no way it will not be fun. There are so many great vendors, guests, activities, organizations and fatty-nibbles planned for the weekend. If I were to write them all down, you would not make it to the end of this blog. So, no matter whether you’re a girly-girl or a tomboy, you’re sure to find something to love and appreciate.
And don’t worry if you can’t find a place to stash the kids, just bring them! There will be some vendors and activities specially for the little ones, so consider this a family-friendly event. And yes, I mean that. If the kid wasn’t spending the weekend with his dad, I would bring him. He’d be mesmerized by the bling. (I can imagine his face now…chuckles!) We’d have to take breaks – with the event housed in two different buildings at the NC fairgrounds, there’s a lot of ground to cover – but I know that we’d have a lot of fun.
I picked up a few tips at tonight’s event, so take note and hopefully these will help you have an even better time this weekend (cause it’s already going to be awesome)!
