First Look: Barbershop: The Next Cut

November 24th, 2015

barber shop 2

Ice Cube and Cedric the Entertainer are reunited in “Barbershop: The Next Cut,” directed by Malcolm D. Lee (“The Best Man” films, “Welcome Home, Roscoe Jenkins”).

It’s been more than 10 years since our last appointment at Calvin’s Barbershop. Calvin (Ice Cube) and his longtime crew, including Eddie (Cedric the Entertainer), are still there, but the shop has undergone some major changes. Most noticeably, our once male-dominated sanctuary is now co-ed. The ladies bring their own flavor, drama and gossip to the shop challenging the fellas at every turn. Despite the good times and camaraderie within the shop, the surrounding community has taken a turn for the worse, forcing Calvin and our crew to come together to not only save the shop, but their neighborhood.

Yankee Candle announced the launch of their new online tool to create personalized photo candles.

Great for birthdays, holidays, baby showers etc. Happy Holiday Shopping and more info inside… Read the rest of this entry »

The All New Mitsubishi Outlander

November 24th, 2015

Mitsubishi outlander 2016

Its been a very long time since I reviewed a black vehicle but something made me go back and look in my archives. I really don’t think I have ever had the chance to test-drive a black car period! I get the shade red most of the time which must be a very popular color for car reviewers but this was something different for sure! I got a chance to test drive the all new Mitsubishi Outlander for a week.

Here in Atlanta it has been raining for days on end, so I didn’t really get to take it for spin for a few days because of all the downpours argh! Here in Atlanta, its hard to go anywhere with the rain because you just sit in traffic because people can’t seem to drive in it and there is LOTS of accidents. For a couple of days it did clear up and I ran outside to take the car for a spin. I was able to get a few fun photos with the Outlander finally!  I will say this, when I did have to run errands in the rain, it handled extremely well! Read the rest of this entry »

Budget Friendly Holiday Decorating Ideas

holiday decor

Are you guys getting ready for the holidays? Although I do not have my Christmas tree up as of yet because I am kinda superstitious in some ways, I usually wait till after Thanksgiving to get started on decorating. I still have been hunting around town for cute holiday decorating ideas though. One of my favorite places to shop at is my local Goodwill of North Georgia! I must admit that where I live, they have some REALLY good items in there that people donate. If you are frugal like me or just want to shop on a budget, you can really find some great things, if you have the patience, time and a good eye.

I have told you guys in the past that Goodwill is my go to place for some of my evening attire for red carpets, home decor items and more! If you are a DIY kinda person or pretty handy like my husband, you should consider stopping in your local Goodwill. They have great budget friendly options to complete your family’s holiday decorating too. Take a peek inside on what I found at my local store and a few decorating tricks & tips… Read the rest of this entry »

My Fabulous Experience At Dancing With The Stars Semi-Finals!

November 23rd, 2015


Me with the stunning Julianne Hough

Do you guys remember when I jetted off to Los Angeles last week for a Disney press trip? Well, while out in tinsel town, I was invited to check out the semi-finals of Dancing With The Stars! You want to talk about a great experience, wow! I was so elated to watch how it all went down, see the celebrities dance, the glitzy costumes, yes I was taking it all in with pure excitement! During the show, we got to see the judges interact with the dancers, watch their performances up close plus all the production that happens on and off camera and so much more.

If you’ve ever been to a live taping of any type of tv show, its something to see in person. I’ve always loved watching behind the scenes stuff, its very fascinating. The set is smaller than what I imagined but they make it look very grand on tv. After the taping, I got to say hello to the beautiful Julianne Hough as we snapped a few selfies and later I spotted Actor Romeo Miller (who was on season 7) and I also ran into last years winner Alfonso Ribeiro as I was exiting the show, he was so cool. Check out all my snaps inside and remember to tune in tonight on ABC at 8pm to watch the finale! xoxo Read the rest of this entry »
