Girls Trip Review

Let's be honest, we all have that one friend that's Ryan Pierce, Sasha Franklin, Dina, and Lisa Cooper. I believe that's the beauty of the movie because every woman can relate to it.

On this past Saturday night, my girlfriends and I went to see the movie. I am sure every group of women that are friends did the same thing. As we were watching the movie I was able to recognize each character trait in my own friends. I have a couple of friends who have Dina's personality.  Dina is the friend who is real no matter what and could care less what anyone thinks of her. I have learned a lot from my friend who shall remain nameless but she knows who she is.  Haha, this is the friend who taught me how to perfect my oral skills. (Saints, judge your mama, not me) This is also the friend who spikes our drinks at all of our game nights. lol, I am thinking I am just having some juice or wine and it's spiked. Needless to say, that was a sleepover night.

Then, you've Lisa Cooper. Immediately, I look over to my friend and said that's you. She doesn't have the same storyline such as divorce with kids but she has the same mannerisms as Lisa. I would say that she is a little more feisty than Lisa. However, in the scene where Lisa knocks the girl out, well that was my friend.

My other friend is a mixture of Dina and Sasha. Lol, she is loud and blunt. She doesn't care what anyone thinks. As a matter of fact, she called herself straightening me at the movie because our seats were on the first row at the bottom. I mean I hate sitting there also but we didn't have a choice.I politely handed her a miniature bottle and told her to enjoy the movie.

Then, you've my cousin who is very over protective of me. Lol, so we all know that she can relate to Dina when she caused that scene in the hotel with Ryan's husband. Yep, that's my cousin! Lol, she has also caused a few scenes with different men in my life. The last one well that's another blog for a later time.

At first, my friends tried to say that I am Sasha Franklin but I disagree. I know the blogging career is what they based it off. So as the movie continued on they saw some of Ryan in me.However, as my cousin would say I am not like that about a man because I would've been left. I can relate to Ryan because like most women, we will try and save a marriage or a relationship. I have become immune to putting on a good face for the world. I believe that every woman has a little bit of Ryan in them; at least my friends do.

Overall, I enjoyed my Saturday night with my best friends.The flossy posse reminded each of us of our group name which was the whore bags.

I am sure they're going to kill me for these throwback pictures but it's cool.

Meet the Whore bags, lol grrr, don't kill me saints! lol

I create some of the best memories with them.

P.S. It's some people who know the real you and no matter how much you try to front, they know the truth. Those people are my best friends aka. the whore bags.

National Free Lipstick Day!

On a normal Saturday morning, I would've to literally peel myself out of bed! However, free makes me move! Yesterday, I saw a news story that Mac would be giving away free lipstick and of course I couldn't resist! So here I am on the way to try and beat the lines or so I thought.

I arrived to the Avenues mall about 9:20am and I was greeted to a line of people! 😩😩😩😩 They beat me! I quickly hurry to the end of the line and waited impatiently for 10am.

As soon as 10am approached the Makeup artist announced they only had 119 Lipstick shades! I ended up being number 115! I barely made it!
Although, the cut off was 119. People were still coming in!
The good thing about waiting is you never know who you'll meet. While, I was waiting met this little cutie.
She loves camouflage and I love Paris but we both love LIPSTICK!

The only color left but beggars can't be choosy!

Thank you Mac!

Florida’s Next Top Model 2017 Highlights

Do you have what it takes to be Florida’s Next Model? I am sure you’ll are very familiar with the hit show Americas Next Top Model. However, the plot has twisted with Florida’s Next Top Model. Florida’s Next Top Model is founded by LeAmber Stephens. LeAmber started Florida’s Next Top Model because she wanted to create an event that gave models exposure. Stephens stated that as she grew her business,she notice the lack of opportunity and growth for models .Therefore, her purpose is to instill confidence in each model as well as push them to go higher. F.N.T.M is a competition that challenges each model to be their best and go higher than the norm. A group of models competed over a course of 24-weeks. On July 15, 2017, 10 models battled it out in hopes of becoming Florida’s Next Top Model. Check them out below:

Top 10 Models: Audre’Ana, Tabresha, Kayla Moseley, Amaya, Dani Bee, Keaunnie Bryant, Shah Paulhill, Kiana lly, Kia Jones and Tylar Glover.

These 10 models battled it out each week by competing in several challenges. The different challenges are the Myth challenge, European Runway challenge, Art walk challenge, Photo shoot challenge, and a Commercial challenge. The myth challenged the models to stand out in a crowd of people. This challenge was inside a night club and the models had to stand out in the crowd. Now don’t take my word for it but I am sure this taught them how to own a room with a crowd of people. The winner of the myth challenge won the back cover of Chic Magazine. The next challenge that the models were rewarded was the art walk challenge. Each model had to collect emails for marketing the finale of the show. The model who collected the most emails won a $60.00 Mac gift card.

On July 15th, at the aloft hotel, the models battled it out; each model strutted it out and by the end of the show, I was clutching my invisible pearls. When I first arrived to the aloft hotel, I was greeted by the hostess and then taken to my seat. The event was decorated very nice and it was a sold out show. Literally, people were searching for seats and standing behind me. The host of the event was comedian Nod Ross, and model Ebony Murray.DSC00156

One of the most funniest parts in the show is when Nod Ross kicked off an strut competition. This allowed the audience to participate for a chance to win a twenty dollar gift card. Nod Ross told one of the contestant who was an older woman that he wasn’t wearing any socks with his slip on’s; In response, she stated that she wasn’t wearing any draws. LMBO, older women have so much spunk and could careless about what anyone thinks! I love it!

 

Once the show started,each model strutted and walked to an short bio which stated why they should become F.N.T.M.

After this 5 models were eliminated.  The crowd and the models were shocked but it proved that they weren’t going based off popularity but who owned the runway. These models rocked different designers on the runway. The designers were Shamara Sloan, William Boston, Rex- D, Lunt Clothing Wear and Keenan Solomon.

Each model was judged on their runway walk,poses and ability to own the crowd.  Once the show resumed 2 more models were cut and that left Tabresha, Kiana, and Kayla in the competition. The last three models to battle it out in hopes of becoming F.N.T.M. This was one of the hardest decisions that the judges had to make. Before, I get into the final details, I would like you to virtually meet the judges.

Picking a winner was a hard decision and right before Stephens announced the winner, She said ” I can’t do it.” Her team deliberated and came back with a runner up. The runner up for F.N.T.M is Kiana.

Tabresha was extremely graceful throughout the entire show. She kept her poised and most importantly she worked the runway. Tabresha won a $1,000, a trip to N.Y.F.W and a meeting with BMG modeling agency. All the ladies in this competition did and excellent job! It takes a lot to go after something that you want; especially, in a room full of strangers that will judge you based of your walk and appearance. So with that being said Great Job!

Screw you comfort zone

  Excuse me, I don’t need your permission! Many times people seek others for permission to do what God has place inside of them to do. I have realized that the only thing stopping me is me. One day I got sick of watching others living the dream that I desired. I didn’t get bitter but I became hungry. I stepped out of my comfort zone and started chasing my own dreams. Although, I am not where I want to be, I would like to say I am doing a DAMN (excuse my French) good job getting there. I promise I am humble and anyone that know me will vouch that I never take the time out to embrace my accomplishments. I just move on to the next goal that I have in mind. For some reason my brain is always on to the next thing. For a minute I need to celebrate ME! (Moment of silence) inserts confetti 🎊! I traveled to France for two weeks with a group of strangers, who turned out to be pretty amazing. I am an extrovert and a introvert which means I am usually shy around new people. However, I came out of my shell, lol I talked to as many strangers that I could. I had the time of my life while fulfilling one of my deepest desire,which was to go to Paris and see the Eiffel Tower! 

Then, I come back in town and leave out a couple days later to go camping with my EGL family. For those of you who don’t know I am the associate editor for the modern domestic section of everythinggirlslove.com.EGL is founded by Yandy Smith and Latoya Bond. Over the past weekend the entire team met for the first time and hung out. 


We were so LIT! We played bonding games and went ziplining! 🤦🏽‍♀️😏 I have some great things coming that I won’t speak about but just know God is literally guiding me! You wouldn’t understand the length of this passage if you’ve never had to watch everyone be blessed while you’re still crying out for a miracle. If you never had to pray for others and see your prayers go through for them but still hopeless await on your own to be answered then you won’t understand…One day I will tell the world more about my long road to success but today I am embracing the moment. Although, nothing will humble you like having a lit three weeks and have to return back to your 9 to 5! One day soon this lit life will be full time!

Lost in the sauce

Hiya 🙂 fellow spies! I know I mention in a previous post about me traveling to France but I never let you all know that I am here. Yep, I have been here for 8 days! Let’s just say it’s very different and the language barrier doesn’t make it any easier. Today, I traveled to Samour, France by train. This was my first time traveling on a train and I slept the entire way. Sleep is foreign here….well in my room it is. It’s a bit challenging because i have never experienced the “college experience.” Therefore, sharing personal space for me is kind of hard.

Here I am 30 and proud 🙂 trying to manage life with students that are 6 or 7 years younger than I am. I mean the things they are doing now, I have already done. Those drunken nights doesn’t quite excite me anymore and I don’t have the strength to party every night. However, I remember a time when I could party every night of the week and go back to normal as if nothing has ever happen. Let’s just say hangovers aren’t my thing and I have to have 8 hours of rest or else I am a…..fill in the blank.

Although, I am enjoying France,I would be lying if I said, I can’t wait until I am back in America.

Outfit details:

Olive green cargo, Olive green long t-shirt,shades and maxi belted kimono- Rainbow

Guess Backpack, Guess Tennis Shoes- Marshalls

PS. I haven’t had anytime to attempt to beat a face here and so I am sporting a bare face proudly.

Pre-voyage post! 

The time has finally come and I am full of mix emotions. I’ve dreamed of one day traveling to France and visiting the Eiffel Tower. However, I didn’t know that it would be a reality. I’ve travel afar to Europe before and I enjoyed visiting cities like Venice,Austria,and Switzerland. The experience was very enriching and I was itching for another stamp. Traveling gives me new inspiration. It allows me to view things differently. Taken notice of the citizens of each country gives me and opportunity to study their body language and how they move or react to things. Soooo what I like to people watch! 🙄🕵🏽‍♀️🕵🏽‍♀️🕵🏽‍♀️

I recommend traveling to a place you’ve never been before because the jewels you gain are priceless. However, the only negative things is packing. I’ve no idea what not to pack because it looks like I need everything! 

Student ramblings.com

I have literally packed for three seasons. I’ve two days to eliminate some items. 😩 I’ll update you before I leave!

Thank you for reading.
