Bad Ass Badu

As part of my Xmas present my generous man Ash bought me a ticket to see the amazing Erykah Badu at Belvoir Amphitheatre on the weekend. Over all the years I haven't once made it out to Belvoir to see anything so I was super excited to check out the scenery. Unfortunately when I got there the security sad sacks wouldnt let me bring my camera in, boo! so the only photos to come away from the night were rudimentary posey outfit shots. Next time I'll remember to bring my point and shoot instead of squeezing my ancient beast of an SLR into my poor, heaving Marc Jacobs.

We arrived just as Mayer Hawthorne was finishing his set and then I devoured nachos and cheap white wine during most of Fat Freddy's Drop. Near the end of Fat Freddy's we tracked down our posse and I spent the rest of the set making up reggae reefer songs with my hilarious friend Kimmy.
The whole concert I continued to look around, up and down, completely in awe of our amazing surroundings. The amphitheatre was packed with young and old souls thoroughly enjoying themselves, and as the night fell the giant crowd blurred into a heaving mass, dancing simultaneously to the beat. I couldnt help thinking that it all looked like a huge worm farm from an aerial view.

Needless to say, Erykah was out of this world wonderful. I have seen her before at a festival where she was awesome but in this particular setting she seemed so at home, and really blew me away. She is such a sxc mama and I know all the boys (and girls) around me fell instantly in lusty love, if they weren't already. She impressed us all with her insane voice, talented mpc skills and shout outs to Outkast and J Dilla. SUCH A BABE!

I was so tired by the end of it (I'd been working all day and went straight there) that I fell asleep in the car ride home, no doubt dreaming of the effervesent Erykah being my long lost sister from another mister.

The Morning Light

So here it is. The beginning of a new chapter. It was about time that I started blogging (according to my friends) and I realised that with all the new things and great old things taking place in my life it would hopefully prove to be an enjoyable and worthwhile experience to start recording it all.
Going back to study, a new job (holla to the girls at thevauxx!) my beautiful friend leaving me for an exciting New York adventure (sad :( but exciting! check it out- me me me + him) and constant travel plans on the go, have all hit me at once lately and have definitely culminated in an action packed last few months.

With everything going full speed at the moment, I'm loving it, but it definitely makes me super grateful for the constants that are there, like my lovely boyfriend, long time friends and supportive family. As corny as it sounds, I'd be lost without y'all!

So with plans of thoughts, vents, interviews, style, shoots, reviews, food, recipes and more all on the horizon for the blog I hope that it provides a worthwhile read for whoever ventures over here and becomes a great platform to keep me motivated for all that is ahead. Wish me luck!
