Rihanna's Savage X Fenty Show

Rihanna has got fashion houses rethinking their whole lives right now. Her Savage X Fenty Show premiered on Amazon Prime this weekend and it is pure fire! Not only is the show unique in how it displays fashion and the models she is using, but the show also displays the versatility of her line at the same time. I cannot imagine one thing that I cannot do in the selection of lingerie the dancers and models are wearing. The way they are working it, I can probably complete a triathlon in that lingerie at it will still hold up. Rihanna is turning the fashion and makeup world upside down, and I am so here for it. I loved everything about her show. I especially loved that she had all types of models and dancers, but when my girl Normani came out, I was undone! I have been rooting for her ever since Simon Cowell first put Fifth Harmony together on that show. I would have loved for her to perform instead but she absolutely killed her set regardless. I have read that some could hav

Don't Catch Misery

Don’t Catch Misery Miserable people want to spread their misery. Don’t catch that shit. It is really like a disease that craves to attach itself to unsuspecting innocents. Sometimes the carriers are not even aware of their infection. These people live in this negative, ugly space and when they talk the message is usually gloom and doom.   Gerd Altmann  from  Pixabay   There is a difference between a negative person by personality and a person who finds themselves in such a stressful situation that all they can do is focus on the frustrating aspects of their life. Both can change but both will take hard work. The former has to be willing to look deep within himself and assess where this pessimism is rooted. The latter has to really step back and look at her current situation, how she got there, and what she can do to change it, all while making an active effort to be grateful and observe the good that remains in her life. While these folks are working through their iss

Embrace this Moment

photo by Dawid Zawila Embrace  the gentle kiss  of the wind, reminding  us that in stark stillness remains  life’s breath We can easily invite unnecessary stress into our lives by worrying and overthinking certain details. There are times that a person can be dealing with a stressful situation and she allows it to consume her entire being. It is so easy to unwittingly find ourselves caught in the cycle of stress. It is in those moments that we need to step back and appreciate the smaller things. It is in those moments that I encourage you to stop and breathe.  It’s not just about the breath. I want you to take that moment and think of the smallest things that we take for granted like your feet for example. Most importantly, I want you to remember in that moment that you are alive and can feel and can take action. Think of nothing else but your potential. Just breathe and be thankful or just be.  At some point, you should write down all the things that you are

Otherhood with Angela Bassett

Otherhood with Angela Bassett led me to Further by Correatown and I am fairly certain that I am not the only one. I'm so mad at myself that I did not know about this song eight years ago when it first came out. I probably was not in the appropriate place to receive it but I receive it now. Otherhood is a Netflix movie starring Angela Bassett, Felicity Huffman (currently is a bit of drama for some really poor privileged choices, but I digress)  and Patricia Arquette as mothers who are being ignored by their adult sons. They decide to do a surprise visit on their kids and the fun ensues. It is a cute movie. Maybe I related to it a bit because I anticipate that will be my case with my son. He does a really good job of ignoring me now except when he needs something of course. I am hoping the teenager boy bug will fade away as he grows into adulthood. Unfortunately, for Carol (Angela Bassett), Helen (Felicity Huffman), and Gillian (Patricia Arquette) their son's were waist-dee

Lizzo I love you Concert Tour

Lizzo I love you Concert Tour I had the wonderful privilege of attending Lizzo’s “I Love you” concert and it was absolutely freaking phenomenal. I love you is 1000% the best name for the tour. She is unapologetically raw. She radiates self-confidence and self-love. Whether or not it is a front, does not even matter to me. I say this because ultimately, we never know what a person is going through when the lights go out and the mind starts churning. Artists are especially hard on themselves and oftentimes suffer from self-doubt because they are critical of not only their craft but also their ability. I imagine this is what allows them to strive for perfection.  Regardless of what is going on inside that creative mind of hers, I love how Lizzo gives the most positive, radiant self-love vibe. She sang her heart out and left her lungs on that stage. Her energy and that of her dancers was off the chart. I was exhausted and my voice was hoarse afterward. I came home and fell out. I

47 Meters Down: Uncaged Review

47 Meters Down Uncaged Four teenage divers discover that the sunken ruins of a Mayan city are also a hunting ground for deadly great white sharks. With their air supply steadily dwindling, the frightened girls must navigate the underwater labyrinth of claustrophobic caves and eerie tunnels in search of a way out of their watery hell. 47 Meters Down: Uncaged stars Sophie NĂ©lisse, John Corbett and a cameo from Nia Long who still looks absolutely fabulous. Basically, four silly girls find themselves stuck in an underwater Mayan city but they are not alone. Great white angry sharks are tearing the underwater archeological site apart and some human limbs too. The thing about this movie is that it’s annoying in the girls’ foolishness. So just expect to be annoyed at the poor decisions they make that are necessary plot points to move the story along. After I got over that, I actually enjoyed this movie. It is a thriller and there were some scare worthy moments when the sharks, w
