I Finally Started Watching True Blood...

01 August 2017

Hinesville, GA, USA

 I am an avid TV watcher!  I especially enjoy binge watching TV.  There's just something about not having to watch those commercials!   I almost never watch a TV show when it is live.  That being said, True Blood is a show that I've always wanted to watch.

The death of beloved actor Nelsan Ellis over the weekend totally reminded me that I had always wanted to go back and watch it just to see what all the fuss was about.  I remember when that show was on air and it had everyone addicted.  I never tuned in because I always felt like I was late to the game.

So I recently started with Season 1 and now I'm almost done with Season 3.  I can say the Lafayette (Ellis' character) is my favorite character with Tara being a close second.  I also really like Jessica too. I'm curious to find out more about the dynamic between Tara and her mother. Blame the sociologist in me, ok?   I see that relationship takes the lead in later seasons and I'm intrigued.

Were you a True Blood fan? Who is your favorite character?  Most importantly, why didn't you guys tell me how ANNOYING Sookie Stackhouse is?!?!?

What show are you binge watching now?

Until Next Time...

OK, Cut Tariq from Power Some Slack

Okay we've got to cut to Tariq some slack!  Wait wait wait, let me explain!  For those of you who watch Power on Staz religiously like I do, it has been so frustrating during the past season and the past few weeks of this season to watch Tariq spiral into being an angry little brat.  I mean even I have posted about how much this kid sucks.  But I think that we have to remember one thing,  Tariq's attitude is a product of Ghost's decisions.

One:  We have to respect the fact that Tariq is a child and that he is still angry about his father abandoning his mother.  Even though you only have one life to live and you should do the things that make you happy, your choices ALWAYS  have consequences.  OF COURSE his actions were going to come with some repercussions regarding his children.

Two:  This is also a result of trying to live in two different worlds.  Ghost is a drug dealer from the streets but he did not want to raise his family in that lifestyle so he has one foot in one world and the other foot in another world.  With that being said, Tariq was not raised with that streetwise mentality of "family before everything".  He's understandably acting out in the only way that he knows how and that's by being an angry little brat.  Call me a softy, but I'm still waiting on him to have his shining moment!

Have you been watching Power the season? Tell me your thoughts about how frustrating it is to watch Tariq this season.

Universal Pictures - Girls Trip NO SPOILERS **GIVEAWAY CLOSED**

11 July 2017

Being a blogger definitely has its perks!  A couple of weeks ago during #BlogHer17, I was given the opportunity to watch the film, Girls Trip about a month before it being available to the General Public.  The showing was a part of a special sponsored event from Universal Studios and exclusively for  #BlogHer17 attendees.  Ever since I saw the first trailer for this movie months ago, I've been super excited and was definitely planning to see it on opening weekend.  However, I was lucky enough to get to see it early with all my #BloggerBoos!

The film (scheduled to be released on July 21, 2017 by Universal Pictures) is directed by Malcolm D. Lee and stars Regina Hall, Queen Latifah, Tiffany Haddish, Jada Pinkett Smith, Larenz Tate and Mike Colter.  It's about a group of four women who were best friends in college but because of life's circumstances have separated for a while.  They come together again to go for an amazing and well overdue girls trip to the annual Essence Music Festival in New Orleans, Louisiana.  The film was HILARIOUS but it also had an amazing message.  During the movie it did not take me long to see why it was chosen for the #BlogHer17 audience.  I'm NOT going to give away any spoilers but I will say that I definitely recommend the film to not only young women but especially to creatives, online personalities and influencers.  The movie has strong themes of friendship, finding your true voice and creating an authentic personality which can be difficult when you are essentially presenting YOURSELF as a brand.

Because I'm soooo excited about this film and I know that you will enjoy it, I'm going to give away a free ticket to see the film!  I'm going to randomly choose someone from the comment section of this post to send a code for a free ticket through Fandango!  Allllll you have to do to enter is leave me a comment telling me about your best girls trip or about a girls trip that you would like to take in the future and also leave me your email address so I can contact you! (For a SECOND entry, you can SHARE the Facebook post that brought you here!) The contest ends next Wednesday (July 19, 2017) at noon and I will be announcing the winner that same Wednesday around 8 PM ET.  That way you'll have plenty of time to snag your ticket before opening weekend, July 21st.

Good luck and I am looking forward to hearing about your girls trips!


Congratulation, Shelia Augusta! You won! I will email you with your code for a free ticket to see Girls Trip this weekend! Thanks for playing!

I'm Going to #BlogHer17!!

22 June 2017

I'm going to #BlogHer17 in Orlando!

Hey guys!!!  I'm going to #BlogHer17!!  I am soooooo excited!  It's in Orlando, which is a short (well, 3.5 hour) drive from me so it was totally a no-brainer to attend this year.  I can't wait to meet all of my #BloggerBoos!  This is my first big blogger conference and I am nervous but determined!  I've already got my strategy mapped out- or at least I think I do!  LOL

So please, if you're going, look for me!  If not, look for about a gazillion social media updates from me over the weekend.  Sorry #BloggerLaw.  LOL 

What blog conferences have you attended?
