Flavor of Friday: Blog Love + Beyonce Behind The Scenes

Happy Friday folks! Hope you're just excited for the weekend as I am. In case you're not, here are a few things to get excited about:

Special shoutout to the guys behind Street Etiquette. They were recently featured in the New York Times for pushing the envelope with black style. How amazing is that? A part of me rejoices when a fellow blogger makes it to mainstream media and represents (remember when Youtube vlogger Natural Chica made it in the NY Times?) - it makes me feel like prgress is being made.

I also must shout out one of my fave blogger buddies Patrice Williams of Looking Fly On A Dime. Patrice gives super tips on finding vintage and thrifted threads for super cheap, and soon she'll be taking her talents down to the Nate Berkus Show. How amazing is that? So excited for her. When you get a chance, give her some props HERE.

So I've officially declared this week "Beyonce Week". After going to her amazing concert on Tuesday evening and seeing her perform live, I was in awe. If you didn't get to make it, feel free to check out my pics on the LoveBrownSugar Facebook page. See above for a behind-the-scenes vid of what went into producing her show at the Roseland Ballroom.

And finally, I must thank all of you lovelies who congratulated me, sent me messages, emails and tweets about my feature on Essence.com yesterday. You guys truly inspire and motivate me daily. 

Stay fab and enjoy the weekend!

  3. Your friends sound so accomplished and gifted! I love Beyonce too..I hope I can see her live concert one day! xoxoxoo

  4. Beyonce is a once in a lifetime artist, and I really don't believe that is an arguable statement. It is always great when you see an artist perform, and know that they enjouy the experience as much as the fans do.
