Oh boy, those shoes are straight kinky

Hello Ladies and Gentlemen and those who have yet to make up their minds! Welcome to week three. I spent most of this week recovering from frequent travels and too much partying so I was for sure a homebody.

  • There is a certain joy to being as posh as possible and in the land of the Brits I took that quite seriously. Everyday was an international fashion show and at the end of the runway was a beautiful brown man or at least that’s what I told myself. So when I thought that I would have to spend the entire weekend in bed because I was feeling less than classy, I decided to do the opposite of that. The third weekend we were there is about the biggest weekend in the UK. It is CARNIVAL! Which is huge and amazing and I have so many pictures to show.
  • Anyway in order to feel back up to the bougie I aspire to be, a friend set up tea for us at Kensington palace. So with a headache, stuffed nose, and less than stellar emotions I dressed to the nines and walked out to strut.
  • The tea was exactly what I needed and not only is the Orangery at Kensington Palace drop dead gorgeous, the food was also very delicious. Our conversation topics were less lady like and more about the previous nights escapades. But being surrounded by beautiful women, handsome waiters, delectable food, and a killer view was all my Saturday morning needed.

Sunday was the day were all the notions of being a lady flew out the window and I wanted to be a freak in the streets for Carnival. There is no way to explain the experience of being surrounded by so many people — people of colour especially and knowing that we are all there to have fun. All there to support the diaspora and have a good time. This to me is the intoxicating atmosphere of large events and with millions of people in attendance it was definitely a large event.

The food was good, the music was great and the people were better. I recommend it to anyone who is able to travel. Go to England during festival season. Hit up notting hill for the night life and have a rad time.

P.S.: If you have not checked out my About me page, hop on over there and take a gander.
