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

Pura Vida!

Hey y'all!

I keep making promises to do better about posting and then I break those promises. So I won't make any such promise this time!

I wanted to give you all a little run down on a trip I recently took (and LOVED). Two of my sisters and my two best friends and I decided to make a run for the equator. To Costa Rica! We started planning pretty early and got tickets and such purchased. We stayed in Jaco (pronounced Haa-CO). I'm still not sure I'm saying that correctly. You should have seen the looks on the immigration officer's face when I pronounced it as it is spelled. I'm pretty sure he called me an ignorant American.

Anywho, we flew from Charleston because they had the better fares and schedules at the time that we booked. Charleston to Miami to Jan Santamaria Airport. Something happened on our flight and me and my bestie were asked to move to another seat. It was actually better seats than what we had. Since we were so accommodating, we were given some l…

Soup(er) Sunday!

This past Sunday I hosted a Crafty with Canon party. I won the party through House Party (I love this site!).

Initially I was planning to do a few different finger foods. Well, the temperature dropped and I wanted soup. And chili. So I made both! And my sister also made a soup that was super delicious. I used my usual go to chili recipe, except I doubled up the seasonings because I didn't have a chili seasoning pack. I think it actually tasted better! I made it in my electric pressure cooker! It was so much faster and it tasted better than it usually does. I'm in love with my pressure cooker and would like another one. Anyone have one they want to give me?

Anyway, we had fun exploring the Canon Pixma printer and printing out photos and making cute little frames! But the food was really the star of the show! I'm going to link to all of the recipes because aside from small adjustments, none of them were my own!

Broccoli and Cheese Soup.
This was a big hit! It was my first tim…

New School Dating

How many single readers do I have? Are you struggling with dating? No? Good for you! Yes? Why is it so hard?! Sigh.

Well, I have several thoughts on that last part. Mostly, I'm glad that it is not just ME that dating is so hard for.

Online Dating - Dating sites specifically.

Y'all, I signed up for online dating and almost instantly regretted it! I paid for a month and cancelled my subscription after two weeks. What are you really here for? Who sent you? Those are the questions I wanted to ask most of the guys that messaged me. Mostly they just lurked on my profile. Like, don't you know these sites tell me when you view my profile? I can see it. Why aren't you saying anything? Do I have a boob hanging out in one of my pictures? Phew, no I don't. Sigh. So yeah, that got nowhere. I'm impatient, I know, but online is not for me. Clearly it works for some people though. I find that if you will lie about the simple things, it will be impossible for me to trust you wit…
