{Personal Post} PHOTOS :: The Black Love Experience (Part Deux) 2015 | Washington D.C.

The other weekend, I had the pleasure of attending The Black Love Experience (Part Deux) at the Anacostia Arts Center.  Nubian Hueman Boutique held this stellar event which celebrated black commerce, art, and love.  The weather was beautiful that day.  The event that evening... even more.  There were special treats floated throughout (strawberry shortcake, meatballs, etc.) pop-up shops, live music, a Polaroid booth, relationship workshops, massages, barbers, etc.  Basically, in a nut shell... EVERYTHING ;-).  The turn out was great!  Here's a glimpse into the experience::


I NEED this in my living room like yesterday; the quest to replace the SHHH portrait

House of MiMi doin her thang.  You may have remembered her from the Trillectro post

I was in loveeeee with these cards.  If I had a shorty, he was getting three of them I had my eye on off gate.  They were too cute.  Photo Cred :  Shar.  I had to use yours for this one and two others.  The quality was better lol. ;-)

Immediately... Naysh and I looked at each other and said ..'If you're really a prince, I'll marry you'. lol.  Those who've seen Coming to America should understand
I saw a few brothas stop through and get shaped-up.  It was ill to watch {you had to be there for the set up}

We ventured into the 'Dating' seminar by the Love Guru herself... Ms. Teia Hill.  It was VERY interesting.  *Notes taken.
