So I am super super SUPER excited about this hair convention in Nashville! I actually don't think I will be able to go...my favorite kizomba dancer Mafalda is going to be in ATL this week. I am a total groupie for Mafalda. She lives in Portugual and she is rarely here in America. So I will be going to see her I think. But if I happen to be there I will see you all there!
Here is a breakdown of the speakers.
