Portugal – Afro Nation

“The Biggest Urban Music Beach Festival In Europe”

August 1st – 4th, I witnessed history in the making as Europe’s biggest urban music beach festival went under way in Portugal. Thousands of us came together to party on a white sandy private beach, and watch the sun slowly set as some of the best artists and DJs in the urban music industry performed on stage. We saw performances from Buju Banton to The Compozers, Charlie Sloth to Distruction Boyz, and Burna Boy to WizKid. It was probably the best festival I’ve ever been to.

A Trip to Philadelphia

“They’ve Got The Best Cheesesteaks!”

Okay so this blog is waaaay overdue and I apologise for my lack of posts recently. I’ve finally moved back home after an amazing 5 months in New York, and during that time abroad I took a couple of trips to Philadelphia, which I didn’t get a chance to post earlier as I’ve been so busy. So, without further ado!

Rooftop Szn

“The Best Views Of The City”

Sipping on a refreshing cocktail, whilst overlooking the views of the city at a rooftop bar is one of my favourite things to do in my spare time, and there’s literally rooftops all over New York City so I’ve always got somewhere new to try. There are some spots that I like going to more than others though. With a combination of the service, quality of the food and drinks, and of course the views, these are some of my favourite rooftops to visit…

The Color Factory

“The Discovery, Serendipity and Generosity Of Color”

A fun, colorful, and interactive pop-up exhibition – the color factory is a pretty cool spot to visit. It costs nearly 40 bucks but it’s so worth it. You get snacks throughout the exhibition, you can spend as long as you want there, and you walk away with some great photos that they take of you during the whole experience.

Afro Code Day Party

“Sunday’s Are For Partying!”

I said to y’all I’d do a post on that day party I went to last week, and here it is.
So Afro Code is an event that happens every Sunday at The Delancey Rooftop Lounge in Manhattan. The weather was literally perfect for it last week, the sun was shining, good vibes were in the air and everyone was having fun.

Girls Night Out

“Girls Just Wanna Have Fun”

You know when you’ve had such a long, stressful week and just desperately need to let off some steam? Yeah, well that was me last Thursday. These upcoming final exams are giving me anxiety so instead of revising, my smart ass thinks it’s a better idea to just go out and forget all about them!

Life in the Big Apple

“The City That Never Sleeps”

New York really is the city that never sleeps, and I’ve barely been doing any sleeping either! I’ve been here for three months now and couldn’t even tell you where the time has gone. The first month was so stressful finding a place to live and settling into a new school at the same time, but once I got myself together I was soon loving life.

Anti-Racism March

“We Can No Longer Endure Oppression Without Retribution”

So the content of this post is a little bit different to what I usually blog about but I feel like it’s something that needs to be talked about. Last Saturday I participated in a march to stand up to racism. With thousands of others across the world, we united to say no to racism and fascism, no to islamophobia and antisemitism and to take a stand for black lives, to welcome refugees and celebrate migrants.
