This weekend I was able to swing through Connected Fest.  Think sample sale and block party with live music and yummy food trucks. Mixed vendors filled the 9th and Hope street parking lot.
My first booth stop was the No. 9 Candle Co. As you approach, the citrus aroma of there hand poured soy and soy blend candles hit you. I can't wait to do my BehindTheSeams with co-owner Yasmine Parrish. 

Mobile sneakers... genius
sneakers * hoodies * accessories * more

Falling Whistles
An organization that rallies for peace and advocates for those affected by war in the Congo. 
Spotted: Sinclair and his family. Marissia and new baby boy Phoenix

It was this bowl of gold (below) that drew me over to the Han Cholo booth. 
An accessory line inspired by Rock N' Roll, Science fiction, Fantasy Art, and the LA culture.
A few pieces down was this decadent array of gold, silver, and rose studded and chain bracelets #totallyobsessed

That's Kylee the head designer and owner for retro pop jewelry & accessory line MissWax.
rings * chains * shoulder armor * more

I knew ahead of time I was going to be sure and make B-line over to The S'Cream Truck. I even looked up their website before I got there to help me decide which flavor to indulge in. I still needed a moment.
Thats' Sarah and Louise the beauties and brains behind decadently flavored ice-cream balls on a stick from a truck. Being the self proclaimed professional food tester and connoisseur  that I am I made sure to extend my services toward sampling new flavors!! You think my ice-cream dreams will come true?! 
I had the Dulce de leche rolled in oatmeal cookie crumbs

My next stop was over to the Hungry Nomad truck.

There is something about Vegetable oil, fresh spices and herbs.
Its like I've said before,"Give the people something fried and they will be happy".

Enjoying my Nomad fries, enjoying the music, and I enjoyed this beautiful instrument too.

Now its time for people watching.... I was #totallyobsessed for #Hats #tribalPrints #BluntCuts & #Satchels

I'm pooped too!
