Girls Trip Movie Review

Go. See. This. Movie!

It’s raunchy. There are a lot of curse words. There are a lot of sexual references. There is a ton of comedy!

This is an adult movie. Don't take your kids to see this one!





I seriously don’t know the last time I laughed so hard! This movie is HILARIOUS from start to finish! I’m going to see it again!

Tiffany Haddish rules this movie! We know all of the other leading cast members and they hold it down. Tiffany Haddish delivers! She has been on the scene for a long time! I love her in the Carmichael Show, and I’m sad that it’s ending. I hope that the success of this movie gives her the big break she deserves.

I can NOT not mention the beautifulness that is Kofi Siriboe! His breakout role in Queen Sugar showed us all of his God given beauty…but something about all that chocolate in New Orleans!!! WOOSAH! He too has had several smaller roles but is now being recognized for having a lot of amazing...talent!

I also must acknowledge what seems like the resurrection of Larenz Tate. Where have you been hiding Larenz? You are still looking good though brother!

So what is it about? 4 college friends who have lost touch over the years due to life and all that comes with it reconnect. One is a popular author that has been invited to be the keynote speaker at Essence Fest and she decides to take her best girls with her. The Flossy Posse shows up and shows out! It's not without drama, but the love and laughter overpowers everything else. It teaches us to cherish our loved ones while we have them and to knuck if you buck when necessary! 

My takeaways:
Apologize when you are wrong.
Don't leave your friends hanging.
Make up a dance routine with your girls because you never know when there will be a dance battle.
Trust your instincts and follow your heart.
You are in control of your own happiness. Don't give anyone else that power.
Have safe sex.
Enjoy your life. Have fun!
Go to New Orleans (Mardi Gras, Jazz Fest, Essence Fest or just a random Tuesday)!
When your friend bedazzles you a jacket, wear it!

I don't want to give it all away so just go see it! This movie delivers. It made me want to reconnect with all of my friends that I’ve lost touch with and fly down to the BOOT! Go see it if you haven’t, and take all of your girlfriends with you! 

To any of my long lost gal pals that may be reading this, know that I love you and I miss you!


XOXO

Holiday Party Etiquette

With the holidays coming up on us so fast, it’s only right that we talk party etiquette. I can only speak about Black party etiquette, so that’s what I will discuss here. I'm sure some of these rule can be applied across different cultures/ethnicities.




If you are invited to a party, gathering, dinner, or the like, there are some things that you just don’t do. If we invited you, we must like you at least a little bit. That can end quickly. Here are some general rules of Black house gatherings that expand beyond the holidays. You’re welcome.

Don’t assume all Black events start late. Yes…a lot of them do, but you don’t want to be the late one. If I tell you it starts at 3, I’ve most likely accounted for the lateness of my family members. We move on without them. Don’t be tardy for the party. Don’t show up empty handed. Even if you are told not to worry about bringing anything, bring something. Even if it’s a bottle of sparkling cider. There will be massive side eye if you show up empty…

Dial Vitamin Boost Giveaway

Howdy folks!

Dial sent me a bottle of their new Vitamin Boost Body Wash to test out. They even sent me a few coupons to give away to you guys! Don't they ROCK?! Yeah they do, and so does this new body wash!

I got the product a few weeks ago, but as is with most things that come to my house, it just sat in the living room unopened. Not because I didn't want to open it...but I've been a little short on time. Even with several snow days it seems like I just don't have enough hours in a day. Does that mean I don't wash? NOOOO. It means that this body wash just made it upstairs with me this morning! LOL

I'm always skeptical about "moisturizing" body washes. I have extremely sensitive, eczema prone skin. So I really have to be careful. Even some washes that claim to be triple moisturizing dry me out and leave me wishing I had one of those cat towers to rub up against. So I finally got to test the waters with this one.



Here are what this product claims to be…

Dial Baby & Kids (Giveaway)

Let me start by saying that the toddler years are fun...and a true test of faith and patience LOL! I love my little tot with everything I have in me. But every day she tests my limits in way I didn't even know were possible. I mostly laugh.

She is a very spirited little girl who LOVES to be outside. I mean she will cry to go outside and sometimes all she wants to do is climb in a chair and sit on the porch and watch the cars go by. On this particular day though...(Jesus be a fence) she wanted to chase lizards, pop bubbles, shred leaves, kick her ball in the sticker bushes and throw a flower pot off the deck to see how far she could get it to go. Maybe softball is in her future, who knows LOL. That said ball ended up bursting from being repeatedly kicked in the sticker bushes...



After our world wind backyard excursion, we go inside to have a snack and settle down a bit. Luckily she likes to wash her hands. I mean, she almost had that lizard!



She really enjoys Dial Watery Melon scen…
