My Insta-Week: 7.9.12

This past weekend, on the heels of my amazing trip to Los Angeles (I'm luxuriating poolside in the top right corner), I visited New Orleans for the Essence Music Festival and had an amazing time. Here's a snippet of what I got into. More updates on that to come!

- There is nothing...I repeat NOTHING...like the food in Louisiana. Everything has so much flavor! Major party in my mouth happened at multiple stages this weekend. From the Catfish Platter at New Orleans Hamburger & Seafood Co, to the fresh-baked Beignets at Cafe Du Monde. That food? Incredible.

- I came prepared with a simple to-do list for NOLA. Safe to say I accomplished everything and more.

- I ran spent my weekend with some of my absolute favorite people at EMF this year. Including bloggers Patrice of Afrobella, Renae of In Her Shoes, Danielle of The Style and Beauty Doctor, Lexi of Curls, Coils & Kinks and SO many more. I was in the presence of some of the most beautiful women. Don't worry, I took tons of pics!

How did you guys spend your weekend? Were any of you in NOLA for the festival?
