Well, the Summer snuck right up on us and we are in full gear for FUN this July 4th Weekend (okay . . . I’m always in full gear for FabuFUN!!). FabuNOLA has no shortage of Fests throughout the year and I’ve always looked forward to Essence Music Fest. I’ve worked the Concert Event in the SuperDome for the first 13 years and have still attended every year (even when Houston hosted us in 2006). The charge of energy & excitement in quite palpable so you’ll want to pick up on it and let it swirl around you.
This year is no exception. It’s the 15th Anniversary of Essence Music Fest. The acts are bigger than ever (and I’m just excited that Maxwell is going to be here with us again). I’ll take credit for having a little heart to heart conversation with him last year at the BET Awards ’08 After-Party at The Roosevelt Hotel where I told him he simply must share his talent with the world again and do another album. I let him know that the girls ahead of me in the restroom line said that if he sang the ABC’s on an album, they would buy it. Luckily, he was able to do strive for more and come up with more content than that.
Besides the night concerts in the Dome, there are the Empowerment Seminars at the Convention Center (which are Free — Bonus!!). Plus, a multitude of Parties and After-Parties and Special Events hosted by many groups going on around town. Speaking of one of those phenomenal events going on in between the Convention Center & the SuperDome, I just became involved with a very special and excited event that I think you will thoroughly enjoy and would love for you to attend (especially because it is Free to you . . . just be sure to RSVP).
I would like to invite you to “Enjoy an Afternoon of Rejuvenation & Renewal” at Motions & HoneyMag.com’s Bond Over Beauty Lounge on July 3 & 4 from 12 pm-6 pm @ the W Hotel. I will be the Local Co-Host along with Keshia Knight-Pulliam (Host) and celebrity DJ D-Nice. This event will sure to get you in the right frame of mind for a beautiful evening.
There will be Mini spa services, prizes & give-aways including concert tickets!! And most importantly, PRODUCT SAMPLES!!!
To RSVP, text your name & # of guests to 773-302-6593 (confirmation text will be sent to you with location & time). You must RSVP even though this event is FREE to you!!
Many wonderful blessings to you and yours. Whatever you do this weekend, enjoy Life to its fullest. Be & Live Well.
