2014 BET Awards Weekend Part 1

July 21, 2014

Hi Loves!

Thank you for being so patient for my BET Awards weekend recap, it would've been uploaded weeks ago but for some reason my photos weren't loading :-( but the folks over at Blogger were extremely helpful with finally resolving the issue.

Now to the fun stuff; I was Blessed to have been invited to this years' BET Experience to cover the events for xoChrisse and had an amazing 5 days in LA for my first ever BET Awards weekend.

Meeting so many sweet people (including a few xoChrisse Lovers) and making priceless connections were the best part of my entire trip.

I recapped each of my days in Cali with a description and some photos, as well :-)

Day 1
I flew out of my Miami in the early morning on Thursday and arrived mid afternoon, LA time. My friend Shavon was kind enough to pick me up from the airport. My first stop was Roscoe's Chicken and Waffles! I had the Jeanne Jones Omelette with a waffle, a drumstick, and a Sunset (Fruit Punch & Lemonade) to drink. The food was good, I ate until I was sure the next bite would case me to explode. Once I checked into my room at the Beautiful J.W. Marriot at L.A. Live, I went downstairs (luckily, my hotel was also BET Headquarters for the weekend) to pick up my Welcome package from BET. After I picked up my package, I hit the pool for some fun in the sun but unfortunately it was cold out so I took a few pictures and went back up to my room to get ready to go and watch the BET Awards rehearsals. Wish I could have snuck some pictures at the Rehearsals but the producers took away everyone's phones to ensure secrecy :-( . After rehearsals I headed to Yard House for a quick bite to eat before going up to my room to crash.

Day 2
Friday was my "chill" day in Cali so my friend, Shavon, and I ran a few errands, shopped at Westfield Century City, and drove around Beverly Hills and Santa Monica before heading back to the hotel to change for dinner. We went down to Yard House (yes, again) because the food was so good the night before and then I headed to bed because I knew Saturday would be a long day.

Day 3
Disclaimer: My iPhone caught a serious attitude with me on Saturday so ALOT of pictures went untaken.
Side note: Definitely time for me to get a legit camera instead of depending on my iPhone for everything.
Got a late start so I decided to grab some Lunch at Tom's Urban to get energized for the day. I had the Buffalo Chicken Sliders and a Shrimp & Lobster taco that were sub-par and a Moscato Peach Cosmo that hit the spot. After Lunch, I went, literally, across the sidewalk to a Live taping of 106 & Park (comatose phone) for a little and then walked over to the LA Convention Center to check out BET Fan Fest and the Sprite Celebrity Basketball game. Once the game was over I headed to Hollywood to experience the infamous Toxic Day Party at LURE (comatose phone). It was way over to crowded for my taste but I still had a great time. With the day winding down I was hungry again and couldn't help but stop at a really cool sushi place called Blue C Sushi around the corner from LURE. The fact these little dishes were going around on and I could just take off what I wanted was already a hit for me. I had some hot sake, two plates of Shrimp Tempura rolls, the Spicy California roll, and Potato Katsu. You will not get any complaints out of me, because everything I had was AMAZING! Feeling like a whale, I headed back to the hotel and had a Mojito at the bar in the lobby (comatose phone) before heading up to my room to catch some Z's so I'd be well rested for the BET Awards.
