Will You Watch? Tyler Perry’s Nobody’s Fool

Looks like another gut buster from Tyler Perry Studios, absent Madea and crew! Nobody’s Fool starring  Whoppi Goldberg, Tika Sumpter and Tiffany Haddish looks like the perfect recipe for a good time at the movies.  Tanya (Tiffany Haddish) is newly released from prison and is quickly recruited to assist her ultra successful sister Danica (Tika Sumpter) in tracking down the dude that “cat fished” her.   The movie does not appear to be short on laughs.  Like them or love them, Tyler Perry does know how to bring the funny with…

Essence Festival 2018

Going on vacation  with a group of women that love to have a good time is priceless. I’m always down for a good road trip. You make countless stops, laugh, cry, eat and then eventually land at your destination. For us it was New Orleans, Louisiana to attend the 2018 Essence Festival. That cute lil intenrary got thrown out the window…and it was perfectly okay!

2018 BET Music Awards

The 2018  BET Music Awards show was very entertaining.   Highlights included the Anita Baker Tribute with Yolanda Adams closing it out with those pipes of gold.  J Cole, Snoop and Meek Mill’s set were done very well.  Uncle Snoop actually took us from crip walking to the church. Meek took issues we are facing right now and used his platform to bring awareness to them. J Cole always manages to serve us with some edutainment with his performance of “Friends”. I hate to see Debra Lee leaving. While she…

The complete body of work is solid. First we got “Lemonade”, then “4:44” now “Everything is Love”.  It is…

Will You Watch:  OWN’s  “Love Is____”

I’m a little excited about this show because of  the Executive Producers, Mara Brock Akil and Salim Akil. Collectively they have gifted us with Girl Friends, Being Mary Jane, The Game, and Black Lightning.  They get us melinated folk and tell our stories with precision. I’m low key still mourning the loss of “Being Mary Jane”,  but I’m going to be alright. Love Is ____ is a romantic drama that tells the story of Nuri (Michele Weaver ) and Yasir (Will Catlett)) that according to OWN, are a couple from seemingly opposite…

Social Media: It Was Consuming Me, I Wasn’t Consuming It

As a blogger  finding a healthy dose of social media consumption was a must.  Social Media is a tool that I use in my  line of work, so to turn away from it completely was unrealistic- that is until I can afford to hire on a staff of amazing content specialist.  Social Media had become unappealing because I found myself reacting  and processing a lot of negativity.  I also noticed that I started sounding like a parrot and my original thoughts didn’t seem so well,  original. To find that balance,…
