When travelling it is always fun to go where there are familiar faces. I did not realize how many people I knew in New York until it came time for a trip. One met up with me and brought me some bomb earrings for my birthday!! Friends, jewelry, Pinkberry, sight seeing with a little bit of randomness?! Yes please!
What a surprise to be asked to pose for a photo upon entering a concert. Why of course I don’t mind….do you want one from this angle….ah just four shots, no problem! HaHa Just jokes! It was a fun 10 seconds though.
2014 was the first year of the new annual Aahh! Fest music festival! I will be back next year for more! Peace and love were promoted at the fest. The day and night was filled with live music from some of my favorite artists. MC Lyte, Jay Electronica, Kanye West, Jennifer Hudson, Common, Lupe Fiasco, Twista, and De La Soul all just some of those that graced the stage; along with some dope dj’s! If you weren’t there you definitely missed out.

Did you attend Aahh! Fest? Tag #NaturallyMzDezy in your photos on IG so that I can see!!
I did not make it to Harlem, but I had a great time in NYC none the less. Veg noms, comics, and a penthouse party, heck yea! Walking around the city made me think of all the movies I have seen that were set there. The Villages, SOHO, Uptown, Midtown, etc. they all jogged a memory of some sort.
The view from the 45th floor was indescribable. Knowing the entire floor was yours was even more so! I could watch the city lights for hours with no problem.
Before I knew it the time read about 0300 and I was no where near my bed! This city I believe is worst than Vegas with creating nocturnal creatures with no sense of time. No complaints though because I had a ball. My top knot scarf style that was worn during the day was quickly turned into a turban to sleep in. My hair under was in a single two strand flat twist, so it was protected. I fell asleep faster than I removed my lashes and tied this scarf!
I’m such a Virgo! I often find myself back in nature having fun. Sweat, wet clay, random fishermen, and bare feet are not a problem for me!
