#NolaCrawl Schedule: Join Us at Essence Music Festival!

Share on Pinterest


As I type, I’m on a plane headed to Essence Music Festival. I’m kind of gagging because Iyanla Vanzant is on my flight (and I may or may not be considering asking her for life advice, LOL!). And because I’m so excited to return to New Orleans for the festival. You guys know, I look forward to it every year.

In past years, I’ve interviewed T.I. and Idris Elba, partied with Raphael Saadiq and watched Beyonce and Janet Jackson shut down the stage at the Superdome:

This year is particularly special because I’m hosting the first annual #NolaCrawl.

What is a #NolaCrawl, you ask?

Well, bloggers Style and Beauty Doctor (left), LoveBrownSugar (center), Lexi With The Curls (right) and myself teamed up to visit the hottest spots in New Orleans — and readers are welcome to join!

We’ll meet up at various destinations in the city to experience the best of Essence Music Festival as a group.

From star-studded parties to celebrity meet-and-greets to pop-up shops to New Orleans famous restaurants, we’re doing it all!

The best part? If you’re not in New Orleans this year, you’ll feel like you’re there with us by following along via our hashtag #NolaCrawl.

And like true beauty girls, we’ve teamed up with sponsors African Pride, Shea Moisture and Cover FX to keep our curls gorgeous, skin glowing and face flawless in the sweltering Nola heat. I can’t wait to lather up with Shea Moisture Olive and Green Tea Body Butter (smells delish!) and give myself a sun-kissed glow with Cover FX bronzer. We’ll be reviewing those products for you, too.

Ready to get in on the fun?
