A Gallery Of Essence Baes
In case you didn’t know, the almighty Essence Fest was this weekend. That means, as usual, a cavalcade of black women converging on NOLA to enjoy their black woman-ness. If you saw Girls Trip last year then you know what it’s like: a heaven full of black women being as beautiful as only black women can be.
@iamliah_ _________ At multiple random times during this trip I’ve found myself with tears in my eyes. My friends are incredible and i will never forget this experience. To receive genuine love and support from your girlfriends means everything. They planned this trip for me to the T without a problem or attitude. Everyone was down for me and that’s what every bride needs. 😢❤️ #aliahsbachelorette #essencefest #essencefestival2018 #efsquadgoals #blackgirlmagic#blacktravel #blacktravelgram
So you know what we had to do. Take a look at some of the baddest baddies out in NOLA over the past week.

If you looked into a mirror today, would you see the same person you did last year? This past year has been transitional to say the least but I am appreciative and grateful for the people who have been by my side and continued to uplift and push me to stay true to myself. Thank you for the birthday wishes, phone calls, and especially to my friends and family who went out of their way to spend it with me. 💜🎂🎉#essencefestival2018 #birthdaygirl #birthdaylove #nola #friends #thankful #instagood #livingmybestlife #cancerseason #mirrorselfie #selfie #fitmom
