Fun of a BAAM!

The beautiful & VERY talented dance company: Devyani

Well, if you read here, then you know that a belle loves some stomp down good music/entertainment–especially if it’s something we can clue the masses in. The ArtBelles were fortunate enough to have the 2nd annual Birmingham Arts and Music Festival (BAAMfest!) located in our very own backyard.

The festival took place in 21 venues across Birmingham last weekend–primarily the Downtown/Southside areas. Different musical genres, dance, and comedy were represented. Read on for the deets & more pics (including N’dambi)!

Pedi-Sure, You Can!

Well ArtBLT’ers summer is almost over and I can honestly say that I won’t hardly miss it. The heat, sweat, burning of my skin, etc. is just too much. Although I love to flaunt my cute chubby toes in the sunlight everyday during the warm months, I get slightly sad that my lovely sandals and toes will be housed for several cold months.

I have discovered for some years now that I am very good at pedicures. With the economy the way it is, the first thing ShermikaBelle and I cut out was hair and nail appointments. Sometimes when we have to make changes we discover unknown talents!
