9:00AM - Preparing For The Awards
Bar III dress (on sale for $40.99) from Macy's which was a beautiful shade of yellow, complimented my skin well and also was a great fit for my body type.
Hair: Pin Curls
Ouidad Salon Series Mongogo Oil spray. It's really light, smells amazing and protects my hair from intense heat. I also used hair pins to hold the curls in place and let them set. And I used a cheapie firm holding spray from Suave that I snagged at the pharmacy last-minute.
All curled and pinned up! Next up was DIY stiletto nails.

3:00PM Ford Gives Back
Congrats to Byron! Nothing like a taking home a brand new car to make you warm & fuzzy inside.
4:00PM - Red Carpet Arrivals
We ran into quite a few celebs on the red carpet. Everyone looked fab (some more chic than others) and everyone seemed to be in a pleasant mood in anticipation of the the show starting.
Over at the Ford Hotspot, Toccara interviewed celebs like Jamie Foxx, Angela Bassett, Gabrielle Douglas and more.
Check out a few of my Instagram pics from the weekend:
I had an absolutely fab time out in LA for the BET Awards. Special thanks to Ford for hosting me for the weekend, and for always inspiring me to "Go Further". This time last year I was in awe that the very awards show that I started my blog around back in 2009 was hosting me nearly 3 years later. I'm still in awe at how much I've accomplished, and companies like Ford make it possible for little ole bloggers like me to see our dreams come true. So I have to thank them for that.
And thank YOU guys for following my journey. None of this would ever be possible without your support! Love ya!
