The Essence Festival 2013 was a wonderful experience. I love being able to take Glamtress Hair Extensions across the world. This stop landed us in New Orleans. The atmosphere was full of great music, fashion, hair, food, & everything good!
Essence Music Festival 2013 Highlights
There were brands galore, including Ford, Essence, We TV, and many more. Turn right, turn left, or look straight, there was a celebrity in eye sight.
Might I say Boris Kodjoe was looking quite chic, if a man can be chic…lol, in his summer colors!
Now, that’s me above with the shades tucked in…gotta keep my fashion game up! Speaking of fashion, the Essence Music Festival 2013 Highlights included many keepsakes for my closet, including
bangles, scarves, and many accessories to keep the Red Carpet sexy & glamorous!
Beauty & the Beat brought us DJ Spinderella, along with African Pride, Mama Dee (Love and Hip Hop Atlanta) and Wal-Mart. I was excited to see Spinderella.Years later, she’s still doing her thing. We certainly solute her! And Lord Mama Dee was in the building. She was so cool and a hot mess .Lol!! I ♥ her . She was so funny. Also I loved the various products, so I definitely got my share! What’s better than great hair, saving money, and rolling your hips to awesome music…Just saying!

There’s no sense in having great hair and a nice outfit if your makeup doesn’t compliment the package. As you can see, the art of makeup & hair is deep! It’s great to see that the Essence Music Festival 2013 Highlights included both! Salute…..it kept me smiling!
I couldn’t leave out the important part, FOOD! 🙂 An event is certainly a waste is the food is terrible, and this was far from it! I enjoyed my heaven on a plate at Surrey’s Cafe & Juice Bar had me in love! The food looks just as a wonderful as it tastes! This plate = one of the many Essence Music Festival 2013 Highlights! Now we cant leave out SHOPPING! Yes , I did stop into Toya Carter’s Boutique GARB to do a little shopping. Ok for those of you who don’t know who she is , well let me give you a slight 411 on her..Well its simple .Lol . She is One of the baby mothers of Famous Rapper Lil Wayne. I stopped in and Honeyyyy her store was packed full of younge ladies shopping for the latest trends. You could barely move around. I really enjoyed her store. While shopping I did see a few things that did catch my eye. I saw this table full of T shirts, caps and accessories.I did see one shirt that caught my eye.
This shirt explains my attitude; however, for experiences like this, (Essence )I’ll keep on working. When we think of fashion, we tend to think of runway. I personally love motivational, everyday fashion! T-Shirts that remind of you of your why…..Gotta love!
My Essence Music Festival 2013 Highlights were so uplifting!
Life, in general, can be challenging. During those times, and the easy days, remember to wear beautiful hair, play wonderful music, and look your best no matter what! New Orleans was dealt a serious blow, big enough to say they can’t do the festival. But, they decided to keep the tradition alive, NO MATTER WHAT! Be motivate, inspired, & live life!
