This weekend the Baby Bash and Bling Expo and Show went down in New York City. The fab affair was geared towards the celebration of moms and expectant moms-to-be in an interactive expo for health, beauty, lifestyle and wellness. The event was hosted by the beautiful celebrity mom and award-winning actress Nicole Ari Parker.
I couldn’t stop staring at Nicole…lol. I’ve loved her ever since her days on the Showtime series “Soul Food” as Terry. She has such a sweet spirit and she’s even more beautiful in person.
The expo was filled with tasty treats, vendors for preggonistas, a beauty bar that included mini-makeovers and much more!

Baby, Bash and Bling was created by the fabulous style maven Monica Byrd. The expo also takes place in other big cities such as Atlanta, Dallas and Washington DC.
The best part of attending Baby Bash & Bling was not only seeing moms of all stages come together and share their experiences, but to really have the connection and support of brands and motivational speakers showcase the importance of taking care of yourself in order to take care of your family.
Whether you’re a mom or momma to be, the “Bump The Runway” show was one of the highlights of the expo showcasing beautiful styles for the chic mom on the go. The designs are from upscale, New Jersey based boutique —TK Reflections. The collection was modern, stylish and sexy. Everyone in the audience was over-joyed when we found out the collection wasn’t necessarily for “maternity.” But rather for any woman who enjoys sexy, feminine silhouettes.

There were also tons of raffles, giveaways and prizes for the audience to win including the designer, luxury, nursery furniture pictured above.
