4th July Pt. 2 Brooklyn African Arts Festival

So it's been a while and I have been DYING to post all my pictures from my AHHHHMAZING summer holiday in New York and Vegas. Here are a few photos from our 4th of July afternoon with our favourite  sisters Gabby and Candice from Trinidad. So it is a long story and I must tell it properly but basically the wonderful Gabby contacted me and offered to show us around while we visited. It was almost instant...after being 2 hours late (getting lost and all that) she graciously took us under her wings and we left New York with two new sisters :) 

It was a challenge to meet up with everyone as people were still working and studying. I did catch up with Deja though. It was short but very sweet :) So that post will definitely be coming up soon. But back to 4th of July....Gabby and her dancers were performing for Diblo Dibala and we most definitely had to go and cheer for her.

Gosh there was no shortage of colour and pattern. Young and old alike....they brought a mean fashion game, and it was all effortless. People of Australia; take note because this is how you do it.

My lovelies Ruthless, Candice and Theresa

Just flawless. Boobs and booty? No need when your game is this tight!

Punch to survive the heat wave

    Yes we really felt the same (like we lost 3 sisters).
    It was sooooo not a hassle. I had a blast with you ladies each and EVERY time we hung out.
    LOL at "people of Australia", reminds me of Stephen Colbert when he says "Nation" when addressing Americans, so funny.
    Miss you guys like crazy.
    About to head to Sugar Cane tonight and I wish you could join us :(
