Half Moon on the Island

Just standing in the area to get in you can tell its just a different vibe. A different vibe from the scenery and two different vibes from the people. The first vibe was my initial thought which was cool and wavy. I like that vibe. Its just the kinda vibe i needed in my life seeing how i survived a major cold 2 days before. The other vibe was irritation, confusion and slightly pissed *because of the heat* . 20170708_142421That second vibe came from the festival starting late. 1 hour and 45 minutes late to be exact! Granted it rained the night before so that would be the reason why…but festival goers dont care about that man. They just wanna get the hell in. Once we were let in, we wandered. We wandered around because there was no music playing. They continued with the original schedule which was the Big Quite Meditation. I get that they wanted to stay with the schedule but it was already a hour and change late opening … Just Get  Right To The Music!!! *Forgive me for I was grouchy by now*20170708_142644 But shout out to Essentia Water! They keep me hydrated for free all day and the behind the booth was major eye candy. 20170708_144356By now all stages are playing music and everything is going as planned. I hung out in the beach area for a bit with Kitsuné present La Plage listening to the tunes and soaking up some much needed sun but the really place to be during the was the Solaar Stage. 20170708_152657I, of course made my was over to it which was a geometric shaped dome with a gigantic disco ball hanging from the center. Just that alone would get your attention but the music pulled you in all the way. There wasn’t a time it wasn’t packed in & outside of the dome.20170708_152932 I eventually went on the hunt for food and found Loosie Rouge. I honestly didnt realize how much i missed grilled corn on the cob til i had theirs. In between dancing my way back and forth between stages i got a chance to check out a few performances such as the Tops,  Abra and Connan Mockasin. 20170708_185816As I scooted my was to the front of the stage to wait for Kelela to perform  Dj Larry Heard took the stage and he was just what I needed. He was joined by Mister White who voice was just melodic. The music they played felt like an awakening; just free and magical. They had everyone dancing. 20170708_194749People came from backstage to dance on the side stage to witness all the greatness that was happening. By now im hype. I danced through their whole entire set and im ready for Kelela to take the stage. 20170708_222900She was just as awesome as I remember from the first I seen her perform. This time I knew the words to the songs unlike the last time. We even got to hear her new single from her upcoming album so we got a real treat. 20170708_223538Unfortunately i didnt stay fot Vic Mensa because from my stage hopping I lost my IPhone and had to go find it. Once I eventually got it back I headed home. Overall the Full Moon Festival waa nice. I was a very very laid back fest which was something i wasn’t expecting. I may return next year depending on who the performers are.

Until then I got 2 festivals left of the summer so stay tuned and as per usual check out the Instagram @in_attendance & Snapchat In attendance for all the in real time fun!

Milk. Sugar. Ice.

Pop Up anythings are awesome but even more so when it involves icecream. Visiting New York is the pop up Museum of Icecream. This was on of the hardest to get a ticket too. dsc_3760When I first found about it and checked the site to get a ticket they weren’t for sale yet. So I checked the week it was supposed to open and it was SOLD OUT!!! Everyday, everytime for the whole summer. dsc_3788Gladly I signed up for the news letter so when they extended their stay jumped at the chance. In the process the damn website crashed on me like 8 times before I was able to snatch my ticket up. It was such a cute & tasty little museum. Right upon entering they give you icecream. Just a few steps away, you receive what I call a “sugar bubble” filled with helium. dsc_3768You can suck   in all the helium for the funny voice and eat the collapsed bubble if you want. They actually had fun facts and information about icecream, high headed from inhaling the helium I took pictures of it to read later. One of the coolest things there was the pool full of sprinkles.dsc_3781 Well not real sprinkles (that would have been unsanitary) but a pool full of soft color plastic that looked like the real thing. It was really fun to play in and you kind of sunk into it. dsc_3793Once out of the pool you were giving  a miracle berry tablet that when eaten turns all sour foods sweet. They gave use a lemon with our icecream to test it out and if definitely didn’t disappoint.dsc_3799

As per usual stay tuned to the IG @in_attendance & SC: inattendance  Enjoy!!!!

I’m an Adult Now!

Have you ever done something that made you feel like a grown up or do something of what you think an “older”  person would do. Well courtesy of the mayor (THANKS BLASIO!!!) all New York Residence have the option of getting something called an NYC ID which grants you access to museums, social events, discounts and all types of cool stuff. My lovely Ride or Die & I went to the much glorified MoMa. With ID’s in hand we now had unlimited access into the museum as well as a year long membership all for free!!! Fancy Adult Stuff Huh? It was our first time at MoMa so we were extremely excited. Not knowing what to expect, we went through multiple open doors, up and down escalators, walked many halls and turned secret corners and found some pretty cool stuff. We were able to see many pieces by famous artist such as Picasso, Andy Worhol, Kara Walker and Henri Matisse.Two areas of the museum stuck out to me the most. One was a 2 wall filled video game which required you to turn back and forth to see as your progressed through each leave. The other was a room with a  movie theater screen with an extremely bright life behind it . Now there was much meaning to this peace but it was by pass because it was the best light to take selfies in…Yeah I know it’s sad but I’m honest. We spent almost 15 mins in there just taking pics of ourselves and then posting to social media. Overall I was a fun experience and I an looking forward to the next museum we come up.

Pics of some entertaining pieces are below and as always check the Snapchat ☺
