SUH LEH WE JAMM
AND WE JAM
AND WE AND JAM UP!
Guys, It’s legit Fete Season…Ya’ll know what’s about to happen right???
I’ve been waiting for this since I came back from Trinidad (Incase you missed that blog post Click this –> *Blog*)
So! I know alot of you have been waiting for the Review in particular given what happened last Year, now if you’re not familiar with what happened last year you can read that review here (Pure 2016)
Now let’s get into this!!!
Now Idk about you guys but me personally, I’ve been looking forward to this year’s pure.
“Why would you wanna go pure after what happened last year?”
“Ya hab money fa waste?”
“Nobody go dey dis year nuh”
Fact of the matter is! I wanted to go and my friends wanted to go also! Sooooooo I paid attention to social media and waited for the announcement about who was performing and such.
Now when the entertainment line up dropped I was like:
THEN THE FOOD MENU DROPPED AND I WAS LIKE
Like, just say no more fam, Ah done coming.
So now it was Preparation time! Now Ya’ll know Im just a “tad” extra and I basically had an Idea of what I wanted to wear and such so it was just to get it made.
My idea was to be this Galaxy god where I’d have galaxy themed glitter on my chest, wearing all white but a purple wescot and something new….purple hair to match.
So as per usual the squad was myself, Annie (She forced me to call her this on social media -_-) and Cocher.
I went out and got my fabric etc and carried it to the seamstress to get made.
NOW OF COURSE, BEING THE RITUAL SOMETHING JUST HADDDDD TO GO WRONG.
Fam. This alone just still so stressful to talk about, already have me like:
Remember I said a part of my outfit was suppose to be a purple wescot right?
Imagine, I went and buy this BEAUTIFUL Fabric in town, carried it to the seamstress with another wescot I previously had so she’d get the measurements from that.
ONE JOB EH, JUST ONE JOB
So the day came where I had to go pick up the clothes I gave her to make, I tried on my pants and that fit perfectly and then she said well the wescot is fine cause she took the measurements from the previous one, so I didn’t really bother study that.
I was relieved sitting in the back of the car like:
So now I got home, opened the bag and said lemme try on my outfit, take a few pictures send to Annie and Cocher.
I took the wescot out the bag and the thing looked like this:
Me at this point:
I just sat on the floor like:
Entire life in shambles, Just like that.
So basically, I now depended on my hair to save the day, which it did.
After that whole dilemma, I told my mom she could wear it if she wants it cause it’s about to go cleaning windows tbh.
My final outfit consisted of
- White Long Sleeve 100% Pure Cotton Shirt – Hakims
- White Shorts that I got made
- Lavender Hair via Adore Lavender Dye – Beautyrama
- White VIP Collection Shoes – Dope on Market Street
- Glitter in the shade “Cupcake” – Le Jardin Cosmetics (which I’m carrying in many other colors btw 😉
So we arrived at the Venue like around 4:50 and we noticed that there wasn’t any traffic on the road , we then arrived at this sign that said “PURE PARKING” and indeed there was PURE PARKING.
Now mind you all of us were in VVIP+ eh so we thought there was a different parking for us so we were looking for that.
Then the security guard was like, yeah you park behind that car dey….inna mud and grass.
Me *winds down window*:
Naw like this wasn’t Caucasian at all.
But they had the Caucasian Shuttle to take us to the Venue so was alright.
The bus man ride was likkle shaky doe, mans on the bus like:
We arrived at the venue and there were all these Camera’s filming us walking in
Could have been the fact that I looked like:
BUT STILL THEY WERE WATCHING!
When we walked in DJ Quixx was playing Lit tunes as per usual with Ibis on the Microphone being you know…Ibis the LIVEST.
My first Observation was that the decor was quite amazing but that the folks was kinda Sparse at first but and I honestly wasn’t complaining cause guess who getting food right away.
There was a wide array of food tbh, so much I can’t even remember but here’s a few.
SHOUTOUTS TO THE CREAMY COCONUT AND GROUND PROVISION SOUP
(this basically saved our lives during the entire fete tbh)
After that we went to get drinks and I saw a friend of mine who was mixing so I automatically went to her
but when she gave me the drink I was like:
Went straight back and asked another bartender to pour in some ginger ale.
(N.B- Don’t go to friends for drinks)
So about the outfits..
I saw some dope ones, happy that MOST of the folks sticked to the majority white theme even if you got creative and added a color that was pretty cool also.
Now being said that, lettuce talk.
I was walking through the grounds and I looked to my left and I saw this guy in the BRIGHT RED Jumpsuit.
I looked at him like:
I was mostly mad cause I wanted to be the Red Power Ranger when I was younger and now someone else got to be him before me.
YO! So after a while we wanted to use the bathroom right…
Normally I hate using the bathroom’s at fetes cause the lines are always line and I end up finding the nearest tree and be like:
However, this time was completely different.
So we rolled up to the bathroom and again, no lines eh.
Went in the bathroom and this BREEEZEEEE hit me like:
I was like AC???? Cu yah.
Then I started to hear something when I was peeing.. then I realized I heard.
GYAL BRING YA BUMPA GIMME GIMMME
Pardna.. there was MUSIC in the Bathroom.
LIKE DJ TOILET WAS ON THE ONES AND TWOS FAM.
Legit almost enjoyed the rest of the fete in the bathroom tbh.
After this was time for the entertainment.
Not gonna lie eh, The entertainment we saw was allll good.
- Ricardo Drue
- Tian Winter
- Peter Ram
- Kerwin Du Bois
- Dj Jime
Kerwin Du Bois gave a killer Performance singing most of his hit songs.
But is when Peter Ram was performing and said:
“Some a dem ladies a call dem self wifey but them a really wifi a pick up everybody man”
Then, after those Acts, Private Ryan and his MC Barrie Hype came on and honestly lately, I’ve been predicting what he’s about to play when he goes up on stage but this time it wasn’t like that.
Pardna fling in some old tunes and just switched up the entire vibe.
Had me like:
Then of course the Dancehall came on and we was like:
Then when he tossed in the new Soca …
Us at this point:
I’m sorry to say eh but as much as you thought last year was “horrible”
This year surely made up for it x 10.
I enjoyed every bit of it and I don’t really have much to complain about, other than the distance you had to walk to go through to diff zones.
I’d give this event a 4.7/5 (.3 off cause I lazy and y’all made me walk)
Still thinking as to what my next event will be but if you perhaps want me to review anything, feel free to hit me up!
Till Then, Stay Dope!
