Who You Calling A Bihh....

Yes...we are beautiful black women. Yes...we should hold each-other in high regard. Yes...we should have all the respect for ourselves in the world. However, I need to know who all saw and enjoyed Girls Trip?  Raise your hands. I actually saw the movie more than once. I saw it with a group of friends and a second time with a smaller group that included my mother, my bff's mother,  my bff and both of my adult daughters and I thoroughly enjoyed each time and they did as well.

Now everyone everywhere is not gonna enjoy everything no matter how great and wonderful you think it is and that's fine. People will always be allowed to have their own opinion whether you agree with it or not and I'm not about to glorify other people's opinions especially if I don't agree with them and I'm not here to give a review of the movie because I want you to see it for yourself. 

The movie Girls Trip did VERY well and many months after its release it is still the subject of conversations. The controversy over the way the women in the movie addressed each other seems to be a hot topic even though it's an old topic. People are a little upset about the frequency the word "bitch" was used and the women addressing each other by it in the movie. You can see the cringe from some people when the word is used.

I have seen several Facebook posts where that has been the question asked...do you and your friends refer to each-other as bitches, hoes, tricks, tramps and other various derogatory terms? Now my circle of friends doesn't regularly refer to each-other as bitches and other charming terms as such but have we ever? Yes. Might we in the future?  Yes. Does it bother me? Do I take it in a derogatory way? No and I personally feel like that's one of the issue some people are having with this movie and that's taking some of the focus off of the positives which are sisterhood, living in your own truth, acceptance, forgiveness, traveling, bonding and inclusion to name a few. 

Rumor has it that there will eventually be a sequel. Would you see a second one? How did you feel about the comradery between the women and how they expressed themselves with each other? Was it a total turn off? Were you cringing and grinding your jaws every time the word was used? Or are you #teamnofucks? Could you see pass it to enjoy the movie?


Until next time...Go forth and read, comment and share!! Bye loves :)

An Official Bahama Mama

I did it guys!! I took my 1st cruise on the Carnival Elation recently. We flew from California to Jacksonville to board the cruise ship. From there we sailed to Freeport and Nassau in the Bahamas. 

Omg.  I had a blast on the cruise as well as off of the cruise. As a first time cruiser I definitely was delighted by the sights and sounds of the ship. Firstly, the size of the ship blew me away only to be told by some return passengers that the Carnival Elation is actually one of the smaller ships in the carnival fleet.  However,  I was still pleasantly surprised by the size and with the amenities on board. The staff was always pleasant and professional and the food offerings...you guys know I'm a foodie. That Guy's Burgers...chile. Oh my goodness. You definitely have to try it. I ate there every day.  Every day I ate a burger. I also had an ice cream cone every day. I was just like a little kid in a candy store.  

We chose anytime dining so we were free of a specific time restriction. So we were kind of leisurely with our mealtimes.  Breakfast was always crowded, of course.  They always had a nice buffet style breakfast on tap with potatoes,  eggs, bacon, ham, waffles, pancakes, grits (yasss grit lovers rejoice!), oatmeal and they also had an omelet bar, a sweet spot, a continental breakfast station and even pizza 24 hours a day.  Coffee, tea and juices were readily available. Just all the breakfast options you could want.  They also had restaurants where you could order a items like Avocado Toast and Eggs Benedict for the more sophisticated palettes of the world. 

That's definitely something that I will do on my next cruise because I didn't try that this time nor did I attend Elegant Night/Captain's Dinner which is a nice dinner with items such as prime rib and roasted brussel sprouts and the like. So that gives me something to look forward to in the future.  I will post some pics from my trip just to share.

Until next time...Go forth and read, comment and share!! Bye loves :)

Essence 2018 - Who's Ready?!

The lineup for Essence 2018 has been released...at least partially and so far we have Janet Jackson, Jill Scott, Erykah Badu, Fantasia, Snoop Dogg, 112, Xscape, Idris Elba, Miguel, The Roots, Teddy Riley, Blackstreet, Guy and still more to come.


This year's concerts are going to be all the way live! I feel a 90's throwback session coming on and I'm ready for real for real. I'll be right there with my hair braided in a basket weave with some big ol hoops and nails out to there. I mean c'mon Xscape, Guy, Teddy Riley, 112, this lineup has some 90's swag, mixed in with some black girl magic and some it's a family affair to it...we know what time it is.

My flight and hotel are booked. If yours isn't click here: imptravents.inteletravel.com.com and get it together. All I need to do is decide which nights I'm going to the show and pack. How tough is that going to be?! 

If I haven't mentioned it, I am so excited to see all of these artists in one place. So much good music. Umm, ummm, ummm like good food just good for the soul. Yasss. So many favorites by these artists, such as...

1. Cupid by 112 
2. Kickin it by Xscape
3. Anything by Erykah Badu (I mean its freakin Erykah Badu!!)
4. Pleasure Principal by Janet Jackson 
5. A long Walk by Jill Scott
6. Adore by Miguel
7. So many songs by Snoop...
8.. Guy's whole catalog....too name a few.

It's gonna be a party y'all...all the members of Xscape will be in the building to perform together! I am overjoyed. Partly because I missed The Great Xscape tour when it came to my neck of the woods and I also missed their performance last year at Essence so they say the third time is a charm and this will be my third opportunity to see them and very well may be my last to see all four of these fabulous queens and my fav RHOA Kandi Burress live on stage. I cannot miss this.

Will you be in attendance? Who are you anxious to see? Who are you hoping will be in the lineup that isn't yet? I can think of a few, such as...

Until next time...Go forth and read, comment and share!! Bye loves :)
