During this entire weekend I kept my wardrobe choice chic yet functional since I knew I would be running around all day. I typically wear an all black fashion look with pops of color. My accessories included a pair of cobalt blue suede Steve Madden loafers and matching smokey eye.
I entered the #BETXFanFest at the LA Convention Center not know what to expected. While looking over the map, I begin to feel a bit overwhelmed by all the events that were taking place at once. Where do I begin? I took a deep breathe and as I opened the door, the combination of an air-conditioned breeze and warm hip hop musical notes blasting from what looked like a Coca Cola Club in heaven instantly drew me in. With eyes fixated on this soft red lighting that glowed all around me, I looked up and there was a sign that read ‘Coco-Cola the World of Ahh’. Everybody who entered in the World of Ahh has VIP status. The area included a DJ booth, VIP lines to watch performances up close, a ‘turn up’ dance area and a photo booth. Coca Cola World of Ahh provided free flowing cold classic coca cola beverages including coke zero and ice cream floats. A soda lover’s dream comes true.
Trying to resist the beats blasting from DJ Kid Fresh over there at the #BETExperience official sponsors the Coca-Cola World of Ahh, I bee-lined straight to the back for #BETX Slam Dunk Contest to see some guys displays their dunking skills. Trying to get myself pumped up to tackle this SneakerCon; a premier traveling event for sneaker connoisseurs to buy, sell and trade some of the most sought after collectible sneakers on the market.
As the day was winding down, I had to stop back by the Coco Cola World of Ahh to take advantage of the photo booth. Just as I was leaving, a dance battle broke out between two dance groups that had just gotten off stage. The crowd went crazy! DJ Kid Fresh kept the crowd amped up the entire time! Everybody was ‘turnt up’. It was exciting to see all these young people having a great time. I had an amazing time mingling with fans, artists, vendors and other BET official sponsors. Now its time for the official party to begin! I’m off to get ready for the 2014 BET Awards Red Carpet Arrivals.
