Queen & Slim
After watching Queen & Slim, my friend and I decided we needed to get a drink and something to eat in order to discuss and process what we just experienced. It is full of moments of pain and beauty, heartbreak and hope, devastation and love. Daniel Kaluuya (Get Out, Black Panther) and Jodie Turner-Smith (Nightflyers) play the title characters to perfection as they go out on a first date that ends with them on the run. Don’t look at spoilers and don’t ask other people’s opinions either. Just experience it for yourself. Queen & Slim is in theaters now.
Brown & Coconut
I just love this skincare line! Brown & Coconut was created by sisters Letisha and Zeena Brown after suffering from their own skin issues. All of their products are 100% plant-based, non-GMO, and their ingredients are organically sourced whenever possible. My favorites are shown above: the Hydrating Face Oil, Brightening Face Polish, and the Balancing Cleanser. Since I’ve started using them, my skin has never felt smoother, healthier, or more loved. Their products would make a great holiday gift, or a nice treat for yourself. I had the opportunity to talk to Letisha and Zeena for my show VOICES, you can check that out HERE. View their complete skincare line HERE.
Nailed It! Holiday
If you need a good laugh, this is the show. The gloriously extra and hysterical Nicole Byer is the host, and pastry chef Jacques Torres is one of the permanent judges where amateur bakers attempt to recreate elaborate cake confections with hilarious results. There’s a quick round that determines which baker will receive an advantage in the final round worth $10,000. The thing I love so much about this show is that you will laugh at the contestants a lot, but they’ll be laughing right along with you. Nailed It! Holiday is the perfect escape from the stressful holiday season. Streaming now on Netflix.
