Absolut Swedish House Party

A few pix from the awesome Absolut Vodka Swedish House Party held at Le Fais Do Do in Atlanta. 

Really cute idea, they let everyone autograph the Absolut bottle. Panama Soundwave is front & center at the top of the bottle!!! I wonder who got to keep the bottle?  They should have raffled it off at the end of the nite.

Had to make Paco stand there so I could secretly get a pic of the hottie behind him wearing my favorite color. Guess that makes me a ~stalker~

Absolut Art
I know they are supposed to be Vegas Show Girls, but it makes me think Trinidad carnival with a tad bit less flair.  The DJ in the front room played alot of Caribbean & Latin music so I guess he was thinking the same thing.

New York, New York!!!

Another last minute trip, this time to see my dawg Selam the Nomad in New York, New York!!!  I can tell that it’s time for me to sit my a$$ at home for a while because shortly after arriving I started feeling homesick. That’s not to say that I didn’t have fun cause as usual I had a blast.  

A day of shopping in Manhattan = fun fun fun!!!  I thought about getting a Candy Bra & G-String for Facundo but 1) I didn’t want a string of candy in my booty crack & 2) Facundo might get pissed when it breaks & there is candy all over the dayyym Bacardi factory!!! Then I found this weird shirtless collar thing-a-ma-bobber. It practically turned my Bacardi t-shirt into a Bacardi suit!  Ready for biznazz baby!!!  Ima wear it with all my t-shirts for important, dressy type events!!! 
Mr. Bose didnt come this trip & he was missed!!! 

I thought these shots were awesome!  We were in the heart of city, but lost as h*ll, might as well have been in the boonies somewhere.  So close to our destination, yet so far away.  Technology failed us & sent us in circles then guess what happened???  A hobo randomly starts doing push ups!  Gotta frekkin love it!!!  Highlight of my day!

Stopped by a street festival in Little Italy & this chica right hurr  was determined to win a Rasta Banana.  Worked so hard to get it (not really, she just haggled like a mofo) and where did the beloved Rasta Banana end up afterwards?  In the backseat of the car, on the floor.   


Saturday was spent celebrating Selam'z cuz Senaith birthday and we GOT IT IN!!!
          Unplanned slightly matching awesome outfits!!!

Fist Pump Action Baby!!! 

Sunday night was a series of mistakes 1) Deciding to party till 5am knowing I had a 9am flight home 2) Drinking a Long Island Ice Tea even though I stopped drinking Long Islands 5 yrs ago cause they’re EVIL 3) Eating a sh*t load of heavy street food after the club 4) Going to straight to work after landing in Atlanta. 
On the flight home it got real bad real quick. The turbulence, the long island & the street food all joined forces against me.  I’m sitting in the window seat, the flight attendants are coming thru with the beverage cart blocking the aisle to the tiny bathroom.  I’m frantically going thru the back of the seat in front of me looking for a “barf bag” guess they don’t use those anymore.  It took everything in me to hold back what was sure to be one of the biggest Up-Chucks of my life. You would think I would have learned my lesson about food, booze & flights. I blew chunks on the way to Hawaii, I ALMOST blew chunks on the way to Trinidad & Michelle blew chunks on the way home from Jamaica.  I suppose I’m glutton for punishment… keep it coming baby!

Anyway, I need to catch up on sleep cause I feel like a zombie (Zombies are REAL)  "Peace in the Middle East"

Bacardi Birthday Party

My twin aka Paco & I decided to throw a Bacardi Party for my 35th birthday because if you know me you know that I HEART Bacardi, its my alcohol of choice, I rarely drink anything else.  My bestie Suze & her hubby Jabari offered their house.  Baker extraordinaire Karin aka http://www.thiswifebakes.com/ crafted an amazing & super tasty Facundo bottle cake (cause you know Facundo is my imaginary boyfriend).  Meeka Michelle aka Double M, Rocky, my mommy & I worked on all the yummy food. Paco helped create my vision of a Bacardi photo booth & he handled photography at the booth.  My dawg Andrea came thru with killer Jello Shots. Basically it takes a village to throw an awesome Bacardi party.  Thank you to everyone that came thru with a bottle & party'd their nite away with me, hope you all enjoyed your Bacardi  party favors.
The Birthday Party invite that a few people obviously didnt watch cause they showed up with non-Bacardi bottles in their hand #Boooo  Luckily I was nice & didnt ask them to leave. lol *my favorite part of the video is Facundo telling everyone to Drink Responsibly (in spanish)*

Alter egos were set free in the Bacardi Photo Booth

Bacardi got some Oliver Twist love

There were a few culprits that brought non-Bacardi alcohol to the Bacardi party... NO BUENO & Side Eye. This is a BACARDI PARTY people!!!

                                                         Dance, Dance, Dance!!!

Cheers to the frekkin weekend

This is probably half of the bottles that walked in the door. 

I became a corn soup-aholic after my 1st visit to Trinidad & have been craving it ever since.
Shout out to my homie Rocky for making corn soup for the Bacardi Party, its a must after a good fete!!! The birthday girl got a GIANORMIS to go bowl, I've been eating corn soup non stop since the party. nom nom nom

The rest of the birthday weekend went off without fanfare.  Saturday afternoon Paco & I met Andrea for Bacardi & Coke at my favorite restaraunt that just so happens to let you keep your Bacardi mugs.
