Creed 2 - Movie Review

Image courtesy of Google.
A little over three years ago I was anticipating the release of Creed. I remember trying to borrow all of the Rocky movies from the library and watch them in order so that I would be "ready." Then I found out most of them were on Netflix and wanted to kick myself.

I. Watched. All. Of. The. Rocky. Movies. I fell in love with them again. Mostly 1-4, but still. Then on Thanksgiving Day, my family and I went to the movies to see Creed. Now, they didn't binge the movies with me, but they were here for the movie.

Michael B. Jordan. I love him. I loved him then, I love him still.

I posted pictures from our Thanksgiving adventure this year to Instagram and was met with many opinions. But you know what they say about opinions...

I enjoyed the movie. I know that the storyline was almost identical to when Rocky fought Drago. I didn't care. These were different actors and there were different elements. Kind of.

This one was full of daddy issues. Viktor had daddy issues, Adonis had daddy issues, Adonis was a daddy issue, Rocky was a daddy issue.

Tessa Thompson. Lawd she's gorgeous! Phylicia Rashad is the epitome of black don't crack! Rocky was Rocky. I halfway expected him to die at some point in this movie.

We got Russia issues. We do.

The movie starts with Adonis winning the title of Heavyweight Champion of the World. He wins against the dude that he lost his daddy's Mustang to in the first Creed because he was cocky. He's still cocky. He has something to prove. Clearly he had never seen Viktor Drago. The dude is HUGE. Nobody wants him to fight him. I think I heard Apollo come back from the grave and say DON'T DO IT!

But he did it anyway didn't he. And he got his ass handed to him royally. Poor Rocky. I really felt bad for the guy. He didn't ask for any of this! LOL

I cheered in the movie. I laughed in the movie. I cried in the movie. I loved this movie! I'm slightly biased though. Because apparently I have an affinity for beautiful men. And yes, Adonis and Viktor are fine as hell.

Mrs. Ex-Drago is a douchebag. She doesn't deserve happiness. Daddy Drago needs to let that ISH go!

You felt the emotions of this movie. All of them. That combined with good acting made this one a winner in my book. I'll probably go and see it again.

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…

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 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…
