LIFE: Birthday in Paris – Day 4 – Nike Pigalle Launch – Dinner at Hotel Amour – Party at Folies Pigalle (4.25.14)

Friday, April 24th was the big day. Nike invited International Influencers, mainly Euros, for a day of events. Those are always tiring, but amazing because you meet people from all over the world who are always super interesting. A bus picked us up from Hotel Amour and we were on our way to a private lunch.vashtie_parisbirthday_42014_DAY401I stopped by to get Alex from his room. He was working, of course.

Afterwards, we were given gear from Pigalle and allowed to play on the Duperre Court. It was fun, although it was rainy and slippery. So after I made my shot, I bowed out for the rest of the game.vashtie_parisbirthday_42014_DAY406

Afterwards, we headed to the exhibit. Needless to say, it was breath-taking. I won’t even explain it, just google it all. I’m so proud of my friend Stephane and the Pigalle Crew for making the best collaboration I’ve seen in FOREVER. Seriously. It re-invented how people see Basketball and made me wish I was a baller.

vashtie_parisbirthday_42014_DAY447We danced so insanely, it was a great night!


The party was madness! So amazing! We wished the music had been slightly better, but it was cool. Then there was the after-afterparty in my hotel room, which happened by total accident. Jean Paul Paula was waiting on a taxi and well, a party happened. It was cozy, because I got to lay up in my bed the whole time.
