|My folks: Shun, Mari & I|
I just wanted to give you all a recap of the Essence Festival and share the GOOD, BAD, and UGLY.
It was definitely GOOD to hang out with genuine girlfriends!

|I got a chance to meet up with my cousin "Tweety" from Macon which was pretty amazing being that we mainly stay in touch via Facebook, Twitter, and IG|
GOOD: One word: BEYONCE!!!!! Forget what you heard… This chick dominates a slays on stage!!!! I came for her and she gave me EVERYTHING I could have ask for in her performance. Bey is BADDDDD!!!! I’m talkin’ Michael Jackson BADDDDD!!!! No doubt she is in fact our modern day Michael Jackson!!!! It’s no denying that she is definitely Queen B!
Charlie Wilson performance was A+ - that man is a TRUE performer and is in great shape for his AGE!
Kudos Uncle Charlie
BAD: The CROWD – I don’t do good in crowded spaces… I mean like you can hardly walk down Bourbon Street it was just that crowded and then the crowd was our younger generation. I felt like a cougar amongst a pack of sheep’s and wolves. I’m just not with that type of environment most definitely if I
UGLY: This was my 2nd time going to NOLA and I knew that it had a smell a few years ago when I went but The SMELL seems to be from HELL (literally)!!!!! New Orleans is going to have to most definitely do something about that smell… I mean it’s almost unbearable but then if you are a heavy drinker than I’m guessing the smell doesn’t bother you as much but it smells like the sewage mist with sweat and alcohol.
Janelle Mona was on stage and the crowd wasn’t really there for her…
everybody ok, almost everybody was walking, talking, texting, Instagramming, Facebooking, Tweetin’ and paying bills on their cellphone. Overall the crowd response was horrible.

|Guess who was off the on their New Orleans thorne! "Momma Dee"|
|G Garvin & Rashod Ali|
Some things you just may see while visting NOLA!
Lastly, here is what I wore on the concert nights:
I only let my hair down for Beyonce! *Teehee*
NOTE TO YOU: As with every life event & moment... I live, learn, and cherish each moment I just have grown to realize that everything ain't for everybody. I would most def plan ahead and do things a little different.
If you plan on going to the Essence Festival 2014 – Plan ahead and be sure to stay at The W (this is where most of the celebrity reside at) or The Hilton but whatever you do “DO NOT” stay on Bourbon Street unless you are into drunken stinky spaces.
~Until Next Time
Peace, Love, Fashion, & Essence
