Cabana (1)

If you are anything like me, I LOVE scary but I also HATE scary movies.  I was watching a scary movie alone the other night, I had about 25 minutes left into the movie and I had to turn it off and watch Phineas & Ferb.  I normally can’t sleep with the TV on, but I definitely went to sleep with the TV on that night.  LOL, but the change in the weather, the full moons and the movies, I feel like it is the best time to watch Halloween/Scary movies!

  1. Truth or Dare (2017)
  2. Would You Rather?
  3. Friend Request
  4. Hush
  5. The Open House

So call up your boo or your friends and watch these cool movies! Just don’t decide to play the game of Truth or Dare or Would You Rather afterwards!

Health Benefits of Kombucha Tea

Kombucha is a fermented, slightly alcoholic, lightly effervescent, sweetened black or green tea drink commonly intended as a functional beverage for its supposed health benefits. I remember the first time I tried Kombucha. It was extremely nasty. I took a sip and immediately threw it away.  But the Bayou Berry brand of Kombucha was extremely good. I was drinking the Kombucha, but I didn’t understand why I was drinking it.  I follow a mental health/wellness blog on Instagram and they rave about how good it is for you and decided to be a trend follower and drink it.  So I…

How I defeated my first year of Graduate School with a 4.0

As like many other college graduates, I struggled with what I wanted to do in life once I graduated with my bachelors.  I got a BS in Fashion Merchandising, because at 18 that’s what I wanted to do in life, be in the fashion industry, but at 20 and 21, I knew that was no longer my interest, but stuck with the degree because one, the major I had switched too, Marketing, was too hard, and two, I didn’t want to be in school any longer than what I had to be.  After graduating, I was lost and didn’t know…

Ghosting a Friend

A couple of weeks ago, I wrote a blog post about ghosting here.  But today, I want to talk about ghosting a friend. Being ghosted as a friend can be just as hurtful, if not more, than  being ghosted romantically. How not all friendships are meant to last forever and many people cut off or ghost friends for several different reasons.  For example, you let a friend stay with you and they took advantage of that, they cheated with your partner, they bashed you to other people, the friendship is toxic, they stole something of value to you, you can’t…

How to Get More Out of an Underwhelming Job

If you’re anything like me, you like to be busy at work. I don’t like going to work and feeling like my knowledge or skill set isn’t being utilized.  I had a job where I would clock in at 7am and be done with my work for the day by 9:30am. I would have absolutely nothing to do for the rest of the work day. I mean literally, I was doing everything from catching up on TV Shows, finding new TV Shows and/or Movies to watch, listening to Podcast, watching YouTube videos to surfing the internet. I wanted to fill…

Staycation

A staycation is when an individual or family stays homes instead of traveling to participate in leisure activities.  But exactly how do you enjoy a staycation from the comfort of your homes? Take a break from the kitchen. Instead of cooking dinner like you normally would, have dinner delivered every night from your favorite restaurants.  Use apps such as GrubHub or UberEats to get delivery from restaurants who don’t already have delivery services!
