Brooklyn Exposed…

love the colors!

There are so many advantages of living in Brooklyn these days, and the Summer months really are the best days to experience all this borough has to offer. Last week, a friend & I hightailed it to the African Arts Festival downtown after hitting up the Huetiful Pop-Up event, and strolled through booths filled with memorable art pieces, striking jewelry and product demonstrations that drew an eager crowd.

A great tool for those who’ve recently BC’d or starting locs

vibrant earrings

my new treasure, did I mention how much I adore colors!

I’ve been a HUGE fan of this designer’s work since her line debuted, so great to meet her in person

Look out for new prints by staying up to date on her FB page!

      hi Kifana, I will be in attendance for the party! it’s in my hometown, so I’d be a fool to miss out on this. Plus my friend assured me this hotel is AMAZING! He was there last week for an event and sang it’s praises…!

    I wish we had more festivals like that out here in Louisiana. Or, perhaps they do, but I never remember when they are. I LOVE festivals simply because of the different type of people it brings. And not to mention, you get to meet so many talented individuals who pride themselves in the art, services, etc that they are exhibiting.

      Louisiana had my heart the minute I attended Essence Music Festival last yr….THAT is a festival, lol. But I hear you on the more artsy ones….it’s often the perfect way to spend a weekend, just relaxing and enjoying artists display their work;)
