3 Days and 3 Dresses in LA and ATL: What I’m Up To This Weekend

To my leg hair: parting is such sweet sorrow. You’ve been there for me all winter, keeping me warm. But since I gotta wear dresses 3 days in a row, I have to let you go. Please return promptly, because my winter survival is much harder without you in my life.

I am on the way to Los Angeles and then I end my weekend in Atlanta. Lemme tell you what I’m gonna be up to.

Tonight, I’ll be attending Essence Magazine’s Black Women in Music event, where I’ll ogle your favorite crooners. I’ll be the one looking for shrimp hors d’oeuvres every time I see a tray. Because: yum.

Yes, this means I won’t be live-tweeting Scandal with y’all. I’ll have to wake up extra early to watch it and write my recap.

I am SUPER EXCITED, though! Because on Friday, I’ll be on duty as a social media correspondent for TVOne at the 46th annual NAACP Image Awards! WHOOOOOT!

NAACP image Awards 2015

I am so excited because I’ll be joined by fellow digital mavens Necole Bitchie, Natasha Eubanks of TheYBF, The Jasmine Brand and Ty Alexander from Hello Beautiful! We will all be giving you behind-the-scenes access at the show, on the red carpet and in the press room.

I’ll be sitting in the audience getting my life and giving you tea on who I’m seeing and the happenings. This show is gonna be star-studded too. If Idris Elba is there and walks past me, I might get pregnant and come back to tell y’all so you can be proud of me.

SO. GEEKED. The NAACP Image Awards will be hosted by Anthony Anderson and broadcasted live so you can be watching and following along starting at 9pm ET/8pm CT/6pm PT.

But yes, follow me on Twitter and Instagram (I’m @Luvvie on both), because I’ll be posting pics and talmbout what’s happening. And trying to convince Michael B. Jordan that I might be his future ex-wife. Wish me luck!

The next morning, I am on a flight to Atlanta for The Red Pump Project’s ROARING Red benefit dinner. Red Pump is a nonprofit organization that I co-founded in 2009, and serve as its Executive Director. We raise awareness about the impact of HIV/AIDS on women and girls, through events, workshops and boldly driving conversation online and off. The red shoes we wear get people’s attention and when we have it, we talk about the epidemic. Today is last day to buy tickets!

Anyway, come Sunday, I will probably need about 4 naps. And I will maintain SUPREME bumminess for the next 2 weeks to make up for all the dressing up I had to do.

I am looking forward to all of it, doe, and I especially love that I get to bring y’all with me on my adventures.
