Don’t forget about 4All Fashion Show at Cafe Asia, but this is something else to enjoy on Saturday.
It has been a good long while since I have had the chance to catch street style. I really should have gotten a picture of myself today, but I can now save that outfit for another day. =)
I was waiting at my metro station and this young lady’s shoes kept catching my eye, I couldn’t resist.

I didnt think this day would have ever COME! I started out with purchasing two $1 lunch deals with livingsocial. I got one for Chix on 11th street off of U street and one at Amsterdam Falafel in Adams Morgan. Would you believe me if I told you I made it to both for lunch…LOL! I was on a mission.
My review of Chix was that it was a really cute spot and I can’t believe I had never stopped in to eat there before. They have a $6.50 lunch special for 1/4 chicken and two sides and they offer students a $1 discount. I shall be taking full advantage with my unexpired student id…LOL! So I got the peruvian chicken, brown rice, cheese and noodles, and the green beans, they called it something else but that’s what they were.
The best part of the meal was the peruvian chicken that I dipped in their mild sauce. The sauce was HEAVEN! Like wow! The cheese and noodles was greater than I was expecting it to be. The rest on the plate was so-so. I’ll have to try another side next time.
|I love brand packaging! =) And check out my finds!|
I had the pleasure of attending Schuntel’s one year anniverary party for her blog called Style and Grace. The event took place at Currency on 19th street near Connecticut Ave. I had always wanted to stop by this place and glad I was able to stop there and enjoy the event and some of the food. I need to eat there soon! I got a deal to eat there from The Capitol Deal the other day.
Anyway back to the event. We signed in and we were greeted with a beautiful layout of Crumbs Cupcakes, MY FAVORITE!!!!, and models styled by Schuntel in three different looks. The outfits were great! I took a picture with the wonderful Schuntel, very sweet person!!! I left my camera so there are not many pictures unfortunately.
Here are some pictures from the event:::::

On Saturday, I got home and saw a package and knew exactly what it was. I could not wait to open it. When I opened it, I was impressed to see the packaging that had the t-shirts inside. They looked like track batons. One was gold and the other was pink. It was really different and creative.
Ok so I haven’t been able to write about my weekends lately, but this past weekend was pretty funfilled sleepless nights due to me working the ENTIRE weekend….UGH! Anyway on Friday I met up with my friend Sade and we got to use my livingsocial deal at The Park and all we owed in the end was $2…major winner! So we drank and ate well…it was fun! We also stayed later to see Ryan Leslie perform. He is an amazing artist…like artistically genius is all I can say about him.
After this we went off to MOOD and while walking there we saw a poetry event going on in this really artsy little spot. It was packed and the poet that was up was phenomenal! He was really good and was really deep. It was wine there which is always great in my book. =) It was art all around us, bodies painted. Just a great atmosphere. We were really glad we stopped. I got to actually meet the body paint artist by the name of BAM…his work is pretty awesome. I look forward to working with him for an upcoming event.
|That curl in my face was killing ME! lol|
We finally made it to MOOD and it was a cute club. I had never been before this night so I had always wanted to check it out. We stayed here for a little bit and then headed home.
The next day was alllll work and then a model call for an upcoming show on April 30th at Cafe Asia. You all should definitely try to come out! This went well despite how crazy it felt like it was going. Trial and error makes things better in my book. After this I went to see a friend perform and her name is Kamila and she was great! I love her music! The main act was Reesa Renee and the guy behind the music was Tommy that I went to college with and did a lot of the art/music for Couture Productions. I love to see people still doing what they love years later. It’s AMAZING! But back to Reesa Renee, she put on a show!!!!!! I knew most the songs because of the old group they had called Chosen Generation. They rocked! All females were on the mic.

The next day after this was Sunday where I worked and went home and worked on my Glamourina article. I was soooooo tired….like you all have NO IDEA!
