#WhatBlackPantherMeansToMe

Just like every other warm-blooded black millennial on social media, I too am in awe of Black Panther. Before I went to go see it at my local movie theater, I was a bit skeptical. The hype was getting to be overwhelming, and I’m a certified skeptic at heart. I’ve never been a superhero kind […]

[THE MASH-UP] WALE/SZA – THE WEEKEND REMIX [NEW MUSIC]

The sultry peanut-butter smooth beat of SZA’s side chick anthem The Weekend is so red-hot it can melt the ice of the recent snow storm. I’m not surprised that every singer/rapper/neighborhood scatter has uploaded their version of the tune on the internet. But Wale’s spoken word drenched rendition might be the best one of them all. Check […]

[BLOGMAS] LET’S TALK ABOUT IT – SHE’S GOTTA HAVE IT (NETFLIX)

Hello beautiful people, I hope you’re having a stellar December and an awesome holiday season. We just had our first snowfall, so it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas over here 🙂 If you’re stuck in the house, you’re probably looking for something new to binge watch. I’m always looking for something to dive […]

WAKE UP, IT’S THE FIRST OF THE MONTH: DECEMBER

Yesterday, it was almost 70 degrees outside. In turn, my brain cannot fathom the fact that it is December 1st. It’s officially Christmas season and I can finally watch all my favorite disgustingly cheesy Christmas movies and consume way too much hot chocolate. You know, it’s all for the aesthetic anyway. There’s a lot of […]

#TBT why i’m in love with neo-soul ft. musiq soulchild, erykah badu

Neo-Soul is like butter. I have an affinity for music that’s smooth like that. It’s the type that has you unknowingly swaying to the beat. Any music that makes you sway is pure to the core; it knows the art of finesse. It makes the marriage of ethereal vocals with raw instrumentation that’s so unbelievably […]

#TBT – IS B2K COMING BACK???????????

On the teaser for next week’s Love and Hip Hop Hollywood episode Fizz alluded to the fact that it may be time for B2K to come back (Reunion tour, maybe??). J BOOG HIMSELF is even going to make an appearance so they can chat about it. Which got me thinking: Black boy bands from the […]

LIL MOVIE REVIEW: IT

I never considered myself to be afraid of clowns. But, the night after I saw “IT” I could not get the movie’s villain, the creepy clown Pennywise, out of my head. I thought: “Did the movie change me?” Pennywise is one creepy son of a bitch. Generations of children know that to be true, thanks […]

A MAKEUP BEGINNER’S LOOK AT FENTY BEAUTY

I’ve always wanted to be a bad gal. Now, I’m by no means a beat-my-face-and-look-like-a-majestic-unicorn type of chick. At 22 years old, I still haven’t mastered the art of eyeliner. Eyeliner, people.       (I know that’s mascara, but this emotion is real for me when it comes to makeup period.) But, what I […]

#niathoughts – how to attack life ft. seeking a friend for the end of the world

I often spend my nights running through the endless field of weeds (and spontaneous roses) that is Netflix. I can often be an indecisive person so something as extensive and never-ending as Netflix can be a source of anxiety for me. Even though I want to find something new, fresh, and interesting to watch I […]

INSECURE SEASON 2 EPISODE 1 RECAP/REVIEW

I love Insecure. It’s been a while since I’ve seen a show that’s so unapologetically black. I swear the room smells like cocoa butter every time I have the pleasure of watching this program. Being a black woman in today’s society, it’s hard to find a TV show with characters that represent you accurately. But […]
