2013 BET Awards: Prep Day

Happy Friday guys! I'm back from a week-long hiatus. Things have been super crazy as I'm prepping for a slew of travel this upcoming month. So hectic that I almost forgot to check in and share my BIG NEWS!

I'm pleased to announce that for the second year, I will be heading out to LA for the 2013 BET Awards courtesy of Ford Motor Company. I will be live-tweeting, blogging and socializing as a correspondent in their #FordHotspot backstage at the BET Awards yet again. I cannot wait to get in on the live action. As I did last year with my Road to BET series, I'll be keeping you guys up to date with live celebrity pics, red carpet updates and more from LA. If you follow me @LoveBrownSugar with the hashtags #FordHotspot and #fordand you'll be able to see everything surrounding and leading up to Sunday's awards.

Last year, I met everyone from Elle Varner to Common to Boris Kodjo and more! I'm beyond excited. Part of me hopes I catch a Beyonce sighting. Cross your fingers for me y'all. Blue Ivy here I come.

With less than 24 hours until I touch down in LA, I'm on a mad dash to find an amazing dress (ASOS has a few options for me, pick out a glam nail look (headed to the salon to find something chic now), lay this head of hair and PACK!

Here are some dresses I'm choosing between for the weekend:

ASOS Curve Mini Dress | ASOS Skater Dress | ASOS Asymmetrical Ruffle Dress
I'm in love with all three, but I need to see them on me before deciding. Thoughts?

And I think I'm going to try out Stiletto nails for the first time:

Which of these styles do you think I should try - Graphic Print, Solid Color Neon or Half Moon?

Thoughts on these options? Leave a comment below or holler at me in social @LoveBrownSugar and tell me your picks!

Oh and be prepared weather-wise cuz it's going to be super hot. as far as outfits, i'd go for the royal blue dress and the half moon nails. have fun and welcome to cali! :)

  4. The white dress with those black and white nails would be HOT! Can't wait to follow your tweets. Congrats and have fun!


  5. Love the white dress! As for the nails, I love them all but if you go with the white dress go with graphic. It's a nice kick!

  6. I love the blue dress and I think the black and white nails would match well with the dress. Have fun!
