Disclosure: Travel, entertainment, and hotel stay were provided to me by Nissan. However, all opinions are my own.
Hey Sassy Peeps!
I know I have said this before, but I feel like I need to say it again…since starting this blogging thing I have been blessed to travel places and to experience things that I never dreamed of. Attending this year’s BET Awards is one of those things.
When I received the invite I thought to myself, BET Awards, hmmm? So I called my girl and told her that I think I just got an invite to attend the 2019 BET Awards. She was like, “NO WAYYYY?!?!?!?!”, so I read the invite to her and before I could finish she said, “Girl, yes you are going!” Then she proceeded to tell me to tell Cardi B hi! LOL!
To be honest, I still didn’t quite believe it until I started to chat it up with the Nissan Diversity Crew about what we were going to wear to the event. I think that is when it finally hit me!

Arrival – Sunset Marquis
While in Cali we stayed at the iconic and super swaggy Sunset Marquis located in West Hollywood. Several of the musical greats have stayed there, such as: Metallica, Iron Maiden, Kiss, Guns ‘N Roses, Green Day, Usher, and Kings of Leon, hence the Rock and Roll vibe. Now I had the pleasure of staying there as well! Talk about totally EPIC!
I wonder if when the next article comes out about the hotel my name will be added as one of the legends who stayed there?!?!? HA! 😹😹😹😹😹

Day 2 – The Nissan Altima
What would the Nissan Diversity experience be without an up-close and personal look at one of their beautiful vehicles! In this particular case, we had the opportunity to check out the 2019 Nissan Altima.
On the morning of Day Two, we met at the Sunset Marquis North Garden for a Vehicle Walk-around and Brunch. The expert graciously provided us with several amazing details about the beauty.
I was actually happy to see the, sedan because just a few weeks before, I test drove the same make and model while hanging out with my Heels and Wheels Gal Pals in Santa Monica, California.
Guys, I have to tell you that this car is extremely smooth and easy to handle. It is definitely great for gathering your squad and taking a much-needed road trip, and in this color, you will be flexing without even trying. It is simply gorgeous. Although, I may be a little bias because red has been my favorite color since I first saw the Michael Jackson video, Beat It. His Jheri curl, those dance moves, and that red leather jacket are ingrained in my mind FOREVER! Talk about swaggy!
Now yall already know that when a group of cool people get together there is going to be shenanigans! The vibe was totally amazing! I met some really awesome people that I now am proud to call friends!

2019 BET Awards
Like many others, I have watched the BET Awards for years. However, there is nothing like physically being there.
The ceremony was held at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, California and it was so much fun! It wasn’t only about the celebs or the music it was the fact that I was actually at the BET AWARDS, which in my opinion is HUGEEE!
Trust me when I tell you I stayed seated the entire time. I felt like a kid, and didn’t want to miss anything, not even the changing of the sets!
Faves from the night:
- Mary Jane Blige (Lil Kim and Method Man)
- Tyler Perry’s inspirational speech
- Lil Nas X / Billy Ray Cyrus, ‘Old Town Road
- Lizzo ( I hadn’t heard of her until that night but I walked away a fan)
Things I learned:
- Always have a comfortable pair of shoes on standby
- Go downstairs during the show / intermission to get pics with celebs
Day 3 – Departure
It never fails…anytime I travel I am always a little bummed when it is time to leave. This time even more so, because of our awesome crew. We had such a blast!
On our last day, we had breakfast, chatted for a bit, took pics, said our farewells and it was time to head to the airport!
Nissan Diversity, thank you so much for an amazing experience! YOU TOTALLY ROCK! HOPE TO SEE YOU AGAIN SOON!
