Almost 29 Rooms

.About 5 hours….that’s how long we: me and the hundreds of ppl waited to get into Refinery 29’s 29Rooms. 29Rooms is an art & fashion fun house made up with celebrity collaborations steaming from topics of beauty, music, the environment, etc; with each room carrying a different theme. The doors opened at 11am and I got there at 12. I already knew I was going to wait about 2 hour to get it but that was a mental understatement. The line wrapped around the building in a loop and just like every pop-up experience I kept telling myself with the sun beating down on body, the motto: YOLO! Literally about 30 mins from the entrance I was giving a scratch card to hopefully skip the line. Sure enough, blessed from the heavens and foot gods below it was the winning card. Extremely excited I gather the people around me who I chatted with for the 5 hours to skip the line and race inside….”WE MADE IT!!!!” We all screamed & took celebratory pics but once we entered I caught a glimpse of something as I  stared into the main hall…MORE FUCKING LINES!!! dsc_47941

To be honest it wasn’t that bad but it’s just the freaking principal!!!  Now the main question of this entire experience: Was it worth it?
Yes: because I met some really cool people, 29Rooms was definitely something to be seen and I can say I went & never have to go again & No: because after all of it I didn’t get to see all 29 rooms because of more fucking lines and the memory magically got misplaced after  that so I could post when I wanted  but I found it. So here are the rooms I made it to…Enjoy!!!

 

Can’t Call It Decent, More Like Epic!

I can’t call it Mad just because it was FREAKING EPIC!!! The usual 2 days of music, with great people and AMAZEBALL performances. Day one started off with Neo Fresco & Fki 1st who got the party started.

Next Gryffin took the stage and as soon and he got into a groove Mother Nature  (this bitch!) decides to provide us with rain…And  not just a regular shower, a freak wind pushing down pour for about 20 mins. It got so bad that the shut shit down and told us to vacate the premises. Did we listen? HELL NO! We stayed and banded together like the music lovers we are. Some rushed the field with security chasing them. Eventually they gave up and so did the rain. Fully soaked we ran back to continue the party.
image

Next up was Alison Wonderland who was great. Then Tory Lanez who’s set a sat through because I needed to save my energy for the evenings main attractions. Dillon Fucking Francis open his set with the Pokémon theme song. I truly fall in love with him at that moment.
image

I’m pretty sure you could here us screaming “Pokémon” 3 block away. He continued to set fire to our asses track after track he played. Last but not least DIPLO!!! Of course he kept us dancing till the very last minute.

Day two started off with Boombox Cartel and next up was Big Wild. I enjoyed him tremendously. He was what I like to call the conductor of the Groove Train.
image

It’s like he takes you on a ride and you don’t wanna get off. He brought out the drum machine , a keyboard and even whistled on a track…To me that was hot! I appreciate the little things. Now Party Khan, Party Khan, PARTY KHAN!!! The link up of Party Favor and Valentino Khan was the best thing ever. I don’t think I danced so much in a short period of time it was amazing.
image

If could afford to go to every show they play at I would, it was that good. Slushii hit the stage next. I was my first time hearing him play and I will say I enjoyed what I heard. Making her way back into the music world after a bit of legal stuff was Ke$ha or what I like to call her Miss Thickness. She looked amazing. I mean expected nothing less but she put in a bit of weight and it went to all the right places.
image

While she performed I mostly stood there in awe of her legs. Her thighs made me jealous. After the beautiful Ke$ha was Boi-1da. Now to my knowledge he is one of Drakes producers and he started his set playing the 6God. I thought it was just going to be the Drake hour which no one would ever complain about but Drake actually appeared and performed.
image

When I say the crowd went wild, they went there and beyond when he hit the stage. He gave us the best surprise of the day. We all needed a bit of rest after it was all over. Zeds Dead put us right back on the dance floor or shall I say field. The closers of the night was Dj Snake. He had so much freaking energy. I think he would have keep playing til the next day if they let him but sadly they didn’t.
image

However when we thought it was all over and done he came back with a bit of an encore. I could tell he really loves his job.

As per usual check me social media stuff @in_attendance or Inattendance and ENJOY!!!

Your Appreciated Emoji!!!

There’s a national day for just about everything. National donut day, national tequila day *my fave*, national pancake day and the newest one I learned about : National Emoji  Day. Courtesy of Pepsi with a pop up museum, the life of Emojis were celebrated.

image

From the beginning of time from when AIM came out til now, the museum gave a tid bits of insight of the Emojis life span. For those who may not know AIM (AOL Instant Messager) was one of the most popular ways of communication  that used emojis before social media took over the forefront.

image

With the vast expanding of technology Emojis have become a language of their own. In the museum there were a bunch of cool facts about ways of communication without words.

image

There was a silent movie playing, a way to make your own smoke signal and even a stop to make your own Emoji. I love pop up museums.

image

Pepsi plans launch there own emojis  so keep an eye out for them and use as many emojis as you can per conversation…They make people smile 😆.

As usual check out Snapchat and peek at the IG account. ENJOY!!!!

All Renaissance

This by far was one of the most glamorous event I have attended. The reboot/debut of  The Renaissance Hotel in NYC was beyond what  I expected. As you can see by the photo they had lots of beautiful lights. I personally have a thing for lights so I was in heaven.

Not only were there amazing lights but there were 2 photo booths, an all night open bar and some bomb ass finger food being passed about by some very pretty people. I tried to take a  good picture of the corn but it almost fell and I needed to save it with my mouth.
image

The music duo The Knock who I ran into at another event *we’ve never met* played a dj set that got the crowd moving. It was so much going on I think everyone was happy with that but then they brought out the legend Wyclef Jean. He did his thing!!!! He sang his hits, play his guitar and piano, jumped off stage into the crowd, sang and jumped around with us,  DJayed and danced with a very cute elderly photographer (I felt it was passed her bedtime). Overall I had an AMAZEBALL time!

Dutty Paul

Get Gimme Da Light!!!! The Day & Night Experience courtesy of Grand Marnier was as the kids say it LIT!  There was good food, great looking people and of course AMAZING MUSIC.

That evening began with one of their three signature cocktails: The Perfect Storm, grand Raspberry Peach Spiked Lemonade and Grand Old Fashion…I drank them in that order lol. Then came the legend Sean Paul to the stage. He was everything I imagined. Just as much energy as his videos.

IMG_2378

We all sang along, jumped and wined to every song.After mister Dutty Paul was done the  party wasn’t over. The Knocks took the stage. Sadly I couldn’t stay for their performance but I knew it wouldn’t be the last time I see them.

Grand Marnier  gave one of the best days ever and I look forward to more just like this one.

As usual check the snapchat Inattendance & just for the blog Instagram: @In_Attendance

Shamir

I first seem Shamir on the stage singing along with Kitten. All artist that night were new to me but when he appear I stood there wondering who is he…Cut to recently, courtesy of Samsung, I had the chance to see him again this time performing all of his own original material. I know longer questioned who he was.

DSC_1042

Shamir performed songs from his new soon to be released album Ratchet and I must say everything that he presented was awesome. Literally every song he sang from his album had people dancing in there seats or singing along. I describe his music as a mix of pop, house, groove and happy…And who do like happy!?!  Without even knowing it  I already knew one of his song, which was great because I could actually sing along properly lol.

DSC_1021

He let us into his world for the night and it was awesome. When you get a chance check out some of his music videos. They are very animated, colorful & he even got turned into a puppet.

Check him out when you get a chance and as always check the Snapchat: Inattendance and the new Instagram just for the blog @in_attendance . I post pictures a lot faster on there lol. ENJOY!

Daycation #1

When you need a getaway…Get Away!
My new motto for 2016 and that’s exactly what I did. My friend and I took a daycation *going out of town for literally one day* to Miami, Florida. I got a decent amount of flack when I spread the word of said trip and most people were like “why for just one day?, that’s stupid, that’s expensive, blah blah blah….”. The plane ticket round trip was only $69 bucks * Thanks Spirit* , I live in New York City and it’s cold here (at least for now), Florida’s beaches are cleaner than ours, plus I lost some weight so I felt like showing off a bit. That day’s adventure included taking an Uber to south beach (the plane landed in Fort Lauderdale), grabbing some food & drinks at Senior Frogs &
getting really drunk before 12pm and then laying out on the beach til it was time to go home. I played in the water like a kid & I enjoyed every bit of it. The SUN. The BEACH. The EYECANDY. It is all a great memory and I plan on doing it all again. For my next daycation I’m aiming to hit up New Orleans! Sadly I was to intoxicated to remember to take any actual pictures because I Snapchatted everything lol

Don’t forget to enjoy life, run with the bulls & check my snapchat for my random adventures! Inattendance
