Essence Fest 2019

Hey Y'all,
A couple weeks ago, I attended the 25th anniversary Essence Festival in New Orleans. Friday night we went to Bourbon street and The French Quarter. We made our way over to the House Of Blues for the Dusse Palooza. It was an epic party Hosted by DJ Millie MS NIX and Mike SW. Wale came and performed a few songs for us and Juvenile ended the show. The party was from 12am till 5am it was crazy.

 I had my family with me so I had to find some family fun things to do. Saturday morning we went to a small town called LaPlace and went on a swamp tour from a company called Cajun Pride. We found a Groupon deal on it. TIP: whenever you are travel to another state check Groupon for things do at a discounted rate. 

Leopard Print outfit is forever 21 and can be found here and here.
Its a linen material and it was super comfy and light.
After the swamp tour we went to change clothes shower and cool off before heading back out for an adventure at The Escape Game New Orleans.
There were several games to choose from but we choose the Heist. We had to find a stolen painting and it was hard y'all but we did it!!! We beat the game.  I wore my logo t shirt and a super cute patent leather skirt from Forever 21 its sold out but you can find a similar one here. My camo fanny pack is from Ashley Stewart and can be found here.

We ended our night at the Historic Gene's Po Boy. We found out it was there last week open. So glad we got to eat there one last time.

Sunday I walked the city and stopped by a couple pop up shops the first one I went to was the Mielle Pop up shop. This is an awesome hair care line and all the products were FIVE DOLLARS! Which explains why I have a basket full of products in my pictures. 

My Best Friend @THEEDJPM was the DJ for this pop up shop and he had it like a day party in there. I had so much fun.
Next Up, I went to the Izzy and Ivy pop up which was actually like several pop ups in one. They had other vendors there, live DJ , Henna Tattoo person, Crayon case, and a book signing all in one. I purchased some goodies that I will definitely blog about soon. 

We ended out Essence Fest weekend with a trip down bourbon to enjoy some Red Beans and Rice and Beignets from the famous Cafe Beignet. 

Until Next year Essence Fest.
