Countdown to My Vacation…Essence Festival Baby!

For those of you who know me…you know that “a vacation” is long overdue! I’ve been working my assets off so much that my body aches from head to toe! Sidebar - I accept all full body massages from the male persuasion, sexy and single of course, lmao. Fortunately, I’ve been drinking a glass of wine every day after work to calm my nerves. Moscato does wonders to relieve stress. After making it through a very rough 3 weeks at the job, I’m able to relax this past weekend for a brief moment and prepare for my trip to New Orleans…yaaay!

I went to Staples and they were a rip off. However, Best Buy redeemed my faith in retail as I bought a few things on sale and received some things for free! Found a cute dress at Del Amo Mall and I love the great “steals” at TJ Maxx and Marshalls.

Only my “better half” - Twin Sis Keesha - knows that I (over) pack at least 2 weeks in advance. I can’t stand not being prepared and I dread forgetting something at home. I also don’t like the pressure of packing at the last minute…I need my beauty sleep, Lol.

So let’s review “The List”:

Plane Tix/Concert Tix/Hotel reservations – Check
Roommates/Best Girlfriends’ In the World - Check

Summer dresses – Check
All BEBE stilettos (my fav shoes) – Check

Sandals (back up shoes ;) - Check
Camera/Flip video – Check

Luggage – Check
Toiletries – Check

Jewelry – Check
Cell phone/Charger – Check
New Hairstyle (finally figured it out!), Lol – Check

Feel free to make suggestions on what you think would make my trip complete ;)

Let the Essence Adventures Begin…….Stay tuned J

  1. This will be my first year going down to the Essence Festival - well, let me rephrase that: I'm not going to the Festival but I'll be in New Orleans while the Festival is going on. *hehe

    I'm almost embarassed to say that I've lived in Louisiana all my life - only 1-1/2 hours away from New Orleans and I've never been. o_O
