“Whey de lime” Fridays – Everybody has a holiday!

Hey!

It’s finally Memorial Day weekend here in the US, and just in time, the weather decides to behave itself and we finally have some sun and some heat in NYC! I have been waiting for this extra day off since the last long weekend, lol! It just so happens that this is a long weekend in Trinbago as they had Corpus Christi and Indian Arrival Day. Also, it is the Spring Bank holiday in the UK. This is a true, true “whey de lime”!

So here are 5 things that I am looking forward to this weekend:

DE LIME LIST – The Memorial Day weekend edition!

1) UEFA Champions League Final – Real Madrid vs. Atletico Madrid in Milan.

This final is the Madrid derby! There will be a massive parade in Madrid coming up this week, but for which side of town? #HalaMadrid

2) Reunions

I am going to my university Reunions, which I think is rather unique, in that it is a 3-day event. With a parade…and live performances! I can’t wait to see some folks that I have not seen in years! #IvyTiger #BlackIvy #Princeton

3) Brooklyn Academy of Music – DanceAfrica 2016

This is the U.S.’s largest celebration of African dance and I love it! Besides the dance, the people, the food, the music, the vibes….lots to enjoy. You can check it out, and it is great for the kids.

“Whey de lime” Fridays – TMS NYC & fútbol!

Is Friday and we limin’! We are speeding through this year and we are in May already (well almost!). As soon as it starts getting kinda warm or mild here, things start jumping in the Big Apple! So for this week’s “Whey de lime” Fridays, I am going to mention a couple of events that I am excited for.

THE MAKEUP SHOW NYC

My annual must-go, pro-beauty event! I live for this! More I am loving and focusing on the education part of the show. I love finding out about the life stories of some of my favourite artists and what products they helped develop and the reasonings. I especially love listening to the powerful women that have helped shaped the industry and the artistry. Of course, many companies chose this event to launch their new products and this is where I get my first peek. For example, last year, Make Up For Ever debuted their new 4K/8K Ultra HD Invisible Cover Foundation that has ‘bossman’ status when it comes to makeup for film/TV or everyday. Especially for women of colour. This has been one of my favourites to use when filming (btw, have you signed up for my newsletter? You should). I have reviewed this product and I go into detail about why this blows me away.

And this year, Mick Ross is making a rare appearance at the show.

If you don’t know Mr. Mick Ross, then you definitely have see his work all over. He’s a photographer that has been hugely influencial in the pop/rock/music industry. He has worked with the best and has produced some of the most iconic photographs of all time and immortalised some of our most beloved artists. I will be in attendance!
