Let me make this Crystal ๐Ÿ’ŽClear….You need to Primp, and prepare for travel to your closest theater and see GIRLS TRIP!!!!ย 


** NEWS FLASH!!!! ๐Ÿ“ธ 8/18/2017 **

Girls Trip Movie earns 100 Million ๐Ÿ’ต๐Ÿ’ฐ๐Ÿ’ต Dollars at the Box Office!!! 

๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿฝ Let me make this crystal ๐Ÿ’Žclear… With so many negative images on screen of cunning… lying… back biting… dirty females selling each other out… spreading rumors and lies… to purposely tear each other down… 

WE NEED a movie like Girls Trip… to carry us away to a place where sisters are down for each other… smiling…laughing… and enjoying life on a โœจunifiedโœจ front… all while slaying sophisticated fashion styles… 

๐Ÿ‘‰๐ŸฝThat…. ๐Ÿ‘‰๐ŸฝThat’s๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿฝ what I’m talking aboutโ€ผ๏ธโ€ผ๏ธ 


Positive images of intelligent… articulate… college educated black women… who are self sufficient… and successful…just having FUN!!!! A lot of it too!!!๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฝ
These are images the world ๐ŸŒŽ needs to see!!!
Four super tight friends from back-in-the-day at FAMU… have lost out on quality friendship time over the years…


They’ve missed each other…(awwww…) things got busy… “Life” happened…

โ˜๐ŸฝFinally…. one of the gal pals opens the door wide enough… from one of her own business opportunities… to usher her friends through… for a reunion… of all reunions!!! 

Her good fortune afforded these life long friends a chance to travel… enjoy deluxe accommodations…. and VIP treatment!!! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฝ

She was BLESSED… to be a BLESSING for her FRIENDS!!! That touches my heart โค๏ธ the most! And while life was challenging for each of these women in different ways…. Every single one of them needed a GIRLS TRIP!!!

Regina Hall, (“Ryan”) Jada Pinkett Smith, (“Lisa”), 

Tiffany Haddish, (“Dina”), and 

Queen Latifah… as (“Sasha”) are in for the ADVENTURE of a lifetime when they travel to New Orleans for the annual Essence Festival!!! ๐Ÿ‘‹๐ŸฝWooo- Wooooo!!!! ๐Ÿค—
Along the way, they rekindle their sisterhood and rediscover their wild sides ๐Ÿ‘€ …by doing enough dancing, drinking, brawling… and trash talking to take NAWLINS by storm! 

Alert!!! ๐Ÿšจ Alert!!! ๐Ÿšจ 

This fly girl crew… used to be “All that” in a well known clique in college… called 
“The Flossy Posse” 

—-> Insert cougar sound effect: rrrooooarrr!!! 

But they’re grown WOMEN now!!!

 -L๐Ÿ˜…L!-
(SMH) Shaking my head…๐Ÿ˜Ohhhhh NO!!! 

It’s Not hard at all.. for this crew to get down in the big easy!!!


They really GO for it….As they should…. Heyyyy!!!!
-LOL!- These chicks are constantly being egged on to do risky things… 
Yep… These honies are constantly getting fired up ๐Ÿ”ฅ from the brash bold soul of the group!!
“Dina” gives the girl squad life…๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฝ She’s always trash talking… and feeling froggy… at every turn ready to JUMP at anyone… who is a threat to her girls…   


Dina fiercely loves her friends! She keeps them cracking up… laughing… but as cute as she is… she’ll crack some skulls too!!! Hee-Heeee!!!! ๐Ÿ˜‚

This sista does not play!!! Everyone can use a devoted…and hard core friend like this one! 

These gems in your treasure box of friends are solid… but rare…To have somebody down for you like thatโ‰๏ธ

Wow!!!! You have to get your “Roll Dolls” ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿฝtogether to see this… have some discussions… make some plans… to really catch up!

On this GIRLS TRIP…there are a few set backs… and tough breaks… but the fierce bond …. that -REAL- sista friends naturally have…is the glue that keeps them together! 

when every sista is on “one accord” —this friendship theme is beautiful! ๐ŸŒบ๐ŸŒป๐ŸŒธ๐ŸŒผ๐ŸŒท๐ŸŒน๐ŸŒบ๐ŸŒธ๐ŸŒป๐ŸŒผ๐ŸŒท๐ŸŒน๐ŸŒธ

but once “sistah’s” get an attitude….๐Ÿ‘ฟ ((strike a horror chord on the organ…๐Ÿ˜ฑ and somebody….๐Ÿ˜ณanybody… everybody scream!!!!))) 

๐Ÿ—ฃAhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The Fall out’s between the friends on screen is ~definitely~ keeping it REAL… 
wowza!!! ๐Ÿ˜ฏ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ˜ค

Director Malcolm D. Lee... does a great job… of directing GIRLS TRIP… scenes when times are up… and times are down…..


Girl crews ~everywhere~ will definitely relate to those @down times…” when sista’s ” fall out” for this reason…. or that one…

We’ve all been there… and gone through that!!! With one or two… or the entire crew……Umph! ๐Ÿ˜–

You know…I really liked this movie A LOT !!! 

It was FUN! there is a message of โœจempowermentโœจ for women… and a wonderful nod to the power… and value to KEEPING friendships in tact!!!

God must have truly moved through my spirit… in preparation for this movie! My Birthday was coming up…. I hadn’t had a chance to enjoy FUN with some real friends in a Looooong timeโ€ผ๏ธ

I remember waking up… and thinking ๐Ÿ’ญ in my ๐Ÿ˜ด Sleep… thinking… I MISS my friends!!!! —> The laughter… Listening to their life stories… Getting Love & relationship advice… 

 I could still use some good WING women… since I’m still single… and have not had a chance to ever get married…to a great guy…. I need their help & guidance…for some things…๐Ÿ™‚๐Ÿ™ƒ

Yeahhhh… I miss eating out…. ๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ๐Ÿฑ๐Ÿœ๐Ÿค๐Ÿ”๐ŸŒฎ๐Ÿน๐Ÿฅ‚at cool places… and All the other “shenanigans” that come along… from just hanging out with GIRLFRIENDS

So…….. I reached out… and called… or sent texts to some of my extra special friends… 

some of them I had not spoken to in years!!! 

It didn’t mean I hadn’t thought about them… ( I have… but…. well… you know… “Life” happened… ๐Ÿ˜

I thought about trips and adventures that I had with friends… 

The FUN memories with my TV anchor/reporter friends/ colleagues at (NABJ) National Association of Black Journalists Conventions… 

all of us… from different cities/news markets would meet up…. after sessions… 

and WE WOULD HAVE THE ***BEST TIMES!!!!***** 

Working long hours in newsrooms… ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿฝโ€๐Ÿ’ปand always being on alert all the time… It was good to get together!!! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ 

And then… My thoughts switch to those “DREAM EXCURSIONS” I’d always WISHEDโœจ we could have taken….

********* Newsflash ๐Ÿ“ธ **********

It ain’t always easy to get a bunch of women together… and on the same page… but it’s soooo worth it!!! 

REAL friendships... can truly survive the test of time! Whether it’s 1 year…5 years… or 20 years apart… when all those energies and personalities are REUNITED again… it’s like no time has passed at all… **magical!!!** 

It’s like going back to the days where things were really GOOD in a time machine! 

***********************************

       ๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿฝ And this is priceless!!! ๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿฝ

***********************************

‘Tis true…. friendship is essential to the soul… and there is no better crew… to pull you through… life’s up’s and downs… than “your girls…”

They know you inside out… will tell you off…talk you down.. from making bad choices… or doing something stupid.

TRUE GIRLFRIENDS prop you up… when you feel like you simply can not stand up to life’s challenges….anymore..

 “The spirit” of this film…-definitely-seemed like something that could come straight out of a lot of women’s playbooks…

and wish books too……. ๐Ÿ˜

My reference to the personal playbook… makes me think of the tight knit REAL LIFE friendships… I actually had with buddies living in dorms…in college…at CLARK… in Atlanta. GA.. ( #CAU) Friends from High School… and the #HBCU experience!

I also think a lot about my FABULOUS ๐Ÿ”บ๐Ÿ˜ DELTA sisters from my sorority… and other GREEK SISTERS! 

Oh yesssss!!! dance moves… fly hair styles.. wardrobes and all!!! 

I remember meeting up in the dorm room…( my room was one of the main spots for us to “hook up” ๐Ÿ˜‰) ….and make plans to hit the party scenes…
We’d sip on frozen drinks.. primp… and practice dance moves…to stroll… or step…and look cute on the dance floor…..uh huh… I know… ๐Ÿ˜Š

Sooo many special memories of me and my girl squads taking road trips…. and us bunking up in everything from 3 star hotels… to 5 star suites!!! 
Any accommodation… was quite easily converted into a “Queens suite” with everything each person had to contribute!!! 
Ahhhh those were the days!!!

This movie brought back SO MANY MEMORIES of my glory days!  

It truly left me longing for an updated “girls trip” with my friends!!! 

Ohhh the places we could go!!!”

Back to my reference of “my wish book….” 

Everybody knows… I have been dreaming๐Ÿ’ญ of going to the Essence Festival since it started!!! We’re talking years… and years folks! 

๐Ÿ’๐Ÿฝ Me: ” Ooo I wanna go!

๐Ÿ’๐ŸฝMe: “Next year… Imma make it for sure!

๐Ÿ’๐ŸฝMe: “Hey y’all let’s try and plan ahead… so we can get a good hotel… and really do it… this time…

***** Ya da…Yada… Yada… *****

*** EVERY. SINGLE. YEAR…. **** 

I was always saying: “I wanna go!!!! But hey… I FINALLY… I got there…

( kinda… โ˜บ๏ธ)

  — living vicariously through the characters in the Girls Trip ๐ŸŽฅ movie!!! (Lol!!) ๐Ÿ˜†

The depiction of the Essence Festival in the movie does not disappoint!!!

Lots of real moments from this popular event… cameos from real life stars included!!!

This was absolutely GREAT to see on the BIG SCREEN!!! 

Kudos to the films writers… and to Essence for creating this incredible opportunity for the world to celebrate diversity! economic empowerment! Music!Entertainment! Beauty! Business development!

Positive Lifestyles! Healthy relationships and Black โค๏ธ Loveโ€ผ๏ธ

Yeahhh… that’s what the Essence Fes is all about… so if you DIDN’T KNOW…. now ya know!!!!

I’m going to wrap this up now… but in closing… I just want to say:


 #GIRLSTRIP is a real slice of life! You’ll get a taste of the bitter… and the sweet… One of the SWEETEST moments in the film… happens when a very negative situation… turned into a positive!

One of the friends included another one… in a BUSINESS/ CAREER opportunity of a LIFETIME!!!

 I sat in the theater and said out loud: “She remembered her friend!!! Through misty eyes… I grasped my hands together… and shook them vigorously… saying YES!!!!!!!! 

It was like an Oprah-Gail… ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿฝโ€๐Ÿ’ผ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿพโ€๐Ÿ’ผBest Friend wish…โญ๏ธ come true ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฝ Yay!!!!๐ŸŽ‰ 

I’m telling you… regardless of the bitter moments… sour and sweet ones too… you will EAT UP this film… and probably want to come back for seconds…with more people… It’s delicious funโ€ผ๏ธโ€ผ๏ธ
