2014 BET Awards Weekend Recap Part 2

August 20, 2014

Hi Loves!

My apologies for taking so long to post part 2 of my BET Awards Weekend Recap**, I've been in the process of moving and FINALLY have wifi :-D

**As I informed you all on Part 1 my phone started to develop a serious attitude problem while I was in LA so, unfortunately, a lot of photos weren't taken.

Read up below for  the rest of my epic trip!

The morning of the Awards I didn't wake up until almost Noon PDT and already running behind schedule.. Although the BET Awards are aired Live at 8PM EDT it starts at 5pm LA time so I only had a few hours to get ready. Thankfully, the Nokia theater where the awards were being held was only an elevator ride to the lobby away. Me being me, I didn't pack or buy a dress yet so I sped walked the half mile to H & M while simultaneously praying I'd find something to wear and berating myself for waiting until the last minute. I found three dresses that I loved and decided on a cute LBD that was on clearance from $79.95 to $10! (I'll post the other 2 choices in my #LostFiles post) After racing back to my hotel room I took a quick shower, painted my nails, got dressed, and then did my make-up and hair. After picking up my tickets at 3pm, my friend and I went to get a few drink and appetizers at Yard House before heading over to the Nokia Theater.

We got into the Awards at around 4:30PM and luckily the entrance to the our section was on the private side of the lobby where all of the celebs were walking in from the red carpet so we got to see the who's who up close and personal before the show. Once the show started my phone was already at 20% so I had to get choosy with picture taking but that gave me a reason to enjoy the show and live in the moment. During a commercial break, we were escorted to closer seats than our original tickets so I was extremely pumped. Especially since we were sitting next to "Terrence Wall" from Hit The Floor and behind rapper Sage the Gemini. I loved ALL of the performances but I missed T.I. and Iggy Azalea because I didn't get back from the bathroom before the doors were closed. I got to meet so many amazing people and had an absolute BLAST! Can't wait to attend again next year :-)

On Monday, I went into Hollywood and fully indulged my inner tourist while using all of my restraint in order to not stomp my phone into pieces for being useless.  There are too few pictures to try and piece together. *insert side eye emoji here* but I clearly had a great time because I missed my flight home and ended up stuck at LAX for 15 hours before heading back to Miami.

Thank y'all so much for reading and being patient for my LA trip recap!
