I just had the best Friday courtesy of Dove in the #RevitalizeMe cabana at the 6th annual Govenor’s Ball Music Festival on Randall’s Island in NYC. It was my first music festival on the island event though I’ve lived around the city most of my life but I’ve never ventured to Randall’s Island. The headliner was no other than DRAKE !!! Talk about excited! Now I just had to stay energized as he was schedule to perform at 9pm and it was still morning.
To begin our day we loaded up on the bus in midtown arriving at Randall’s Island around 10:30am The Beauty crew were led to our “home for the day”; where breakfast and the Dove executives were on hand to deliver a presentation on the Revitalize Me campaign and Go Fresh collection. The new scented body washes are intentionally formulated to make your skin softer and smoother with each wash. Have you tried them yet ? My current fave is the Mandarin -Tiare Orange scent . It leaves my skin scented and soft.
The luxe cabana was decked out to reflect a spa like atmosphere, complete with all white décor. Including the softest bean bag chairs ,orange accented accessories , flash tattoo station , flower crowns for all ,and a manicure station from ManiCare. They are the New York / New Jersey answer to at home spa mani- pedi services. After experiencing a pedicure from them earlier in the month my feet are Haviana ready.
The day was a blast! We all danced sang sipped, and enjoyed the festival . Band highlights of the day for me were FUTURE who performed early in the day and got the crowd pumped . Cromeo,Charlie XCX and Odezsa (thx@beautyandthefeast!) continued the party throughout the day. It rained for a good portion of the morning so the grass was wet. It was a good thing I had on my Harleys . These boots were comfortable all day and the leather quality is riddic. I paired them with vintage high waisted jeans and a white racerfront bodysuit from H&M . To keep frizz at bay in the humidity I brought along a travel size Hair Rules finishing cream and my Hermes square colorful silk scarf. The Runway Curls were set by my natural curls were doing their own thing so scarf it was. Very 70s right ! I’ve had these jean for about 7 yrs now. It’s funny how fashion works. I for one am happy about this 70s fashion reivial because I’ve got a wardrobe of vintage 70s gear to rock.
The later it got the more the main stage seemed to swell. By 8 pm you could feel the anticipation and the energy.By 9 pm it was clear that Drizzy was in the building .The stage was cleared leaving only a mic. It was Drake and a mic no chaser. He went from new songs to old “Jungle” Know Yourself” among the set and of course a “Started from the bottom” This was a great way to kick of NY summer music festival season.
Drake drops the mic. What a great show ! He gave New Yorkers what the wanted and fed our egos too. “This is the best festival crowd I’ve ever seen in my life” he said. Well thanks!
