HappyPlannerMini Reviews

A couple of weeks ago I purchased a Meandmybigideas mini happy planner because planning in two wasn’t enough.  I retailed it for $12 at hobby lobby they are originally $19.99 which is kinda a lot but I was in the clearance aisle so I thought it was a good deal. 


I grabbed the Get It Girl because I don’t do pink lol. I use my smaller version planner for another way to plan because I enjoy it. I think i am going to use it for my graphics and social media. 


I love the fact that it’s undated and you can start it whenever you like.

June 2016 Recap

 

Summer beach writing

The word Summer written on a sandy beach, with scuba mask, beach towel, starfish and flip flops (studio shot – warm color and directional light are intentional).

* It is crazy how there is only 6 months of 2016 left!It is very scary how fast life truly passes by. June has been a emotional Rollercoaster if I may say myself.  Highs and lows just like every other month, but this month as been a very challenging one!

Of course the beginning of the month started with mixed feelings and thoughts. I turned 26 on the first, (which honestly caused a wake call) It was not a great year of celebrating my 26 years on this earth ,but I am very grateful for having another day above ground.  The older you get, celebrating your birthday truly just becomes another day.

* A childhood friend  and I made amends to give our friendship one more try , which in my eyes was a blessing and a moment for growth in my eyes. I never thought we were going to be friends again because, how we ended our friendship 5-6 years ago.

*Finally took the first step in getting my license(ABOUT TIME!!), downloaded the Driver’s Manual for my state and began to read it. I am currently 3 chapters to finishing it, then I will go take my written test.  I am a little disappointed in myself for not reaching my goal of having it before my birthday, but I’m almost there. Procrastination at its finest..lol..not anymore more.

*I had to make some very hard decisions this month dealing with what is best for my life, growth and health. Removing people that would rather complain and be misunderstanding to my ways of making important changes for my life.  Standing up for my own right to life, even if it met other being mad for the choices

*Cupid has placed me in an awkward situation when he hit me with that stupid arrow! Dealing emotions, and distracting moves that make no sense at this time.

*Mxdbreedgraphix has become a hot commodity, which is a blessing as well as creating another level of growth in myself. I became apart of a Full Fledge Entertainment which, I am very honored , and blessed about being apart of this organization. It has been  very challenging for me ,due to the fact that I am working with different personalities. I have been filled with joy and happiness that I get the chance to show my talent, I know God is putting me in this place to see if I am truly ready to take this one full time!

As the month is rapidly coming to an end, and looking back at it, I am not in a rush to make major moves that can affect and set me back.

Movie Review: The Race Story Of Jesse Owens

Storyline Of the movie In the 1930s, Jesse Owens is a young man who is the first in his family to go to college. Going to Ohio State to train under its track and field coach, Larry Snyder, the young African American athlete quickly impresses with his tremendous potential that suggests Olympic material. However, as Owens struggles both with the obligations of his life and the virulent racism against him, the question of whether America would compete at all at the 1936 Olympics in Nazi Germany is being debated vigorously. When American envoy, Avery Brundage, finds a compromise personally persuasive and tolerable enough with the Third Reich to avert a boycott, Owens has his own moral struggle on whether to go. Upon resolving that issue, Owens and his coach travel to Berlin to participate in a competition that would mark Owens as the greatest of the American Olympians even as the German film director, Leni Riefenstahl, locks horns with her country’s Propaganda Minister, Josef Goebbels, to film the politically

 I truly have to say that this movie could not have came out at a better time. We need more movies to let  young people know not just African Americans that they are very much capable for changing the world, even when  it seems scary and frighting.  I love biography movies for the main reason that when you watch or read about someone, and their tribute to life itself it encourages you to do so much more.  I have learned many things from this movie not only that CHANGE can happen even with a SINGLE person.  JESSE OWENS has made world breaking changes that should not be forgotten.  I truly enjoyed this movie , I recommend everyone to watch this movie. Its a Wonderful History lesson about RACISM, UNITY and standing up for what you believe in even if the world does not give a damn about you, whether its because of the Color of your skin or your religion.

  This movie takes place during the time of Hitler’s Reign over Germany, as well as the Segregation of African Americans and White people. The  Two most difficult times I truly feel due to I am both African American and German. In order to learn who you are you much understand and learn where you come from.  The German’s where in the process of taking away all rights against the Jews and anyone who was not WHITE .  I appreciate the clarity in this movie and the way they portrayed these important historical events because, you truly do not get to experience the moments of history as your parents to ancestors but in movies.   This movie shows the beauty of Unity  and the Overcoming of trials and tribulations and anyone could go through.  Jesse Owens was an AFRICAN AMERICAN  MAN who not only had to deal with people trying to discourage him because of his SKIN COLOR but also not worrying about what other people taught and do what he enjoyed to do.

 I apologize if anyone is  offended by this Review… I am not a racist by any means.. just an honest opinion and my thoughts on this amazing movie that I had to honor of watching.

Movie Review: The Good Dinosaur

imageStoryline of the Movie Provided to you by IMDbimage

“The Good Dinosaur” asks the question: What if the asteroid that forever changed life on Earth missed the planet completely and giant dinosaurs never became extinct? In this epic journey into the world of dinosaurs, an Apatosaurus named Arlo makes an unlikely human friend. While traveling through a harsh and mysterious landscape, Arlo learns the power of confronting his fears and discovers what he is truly capable of. Written by Pixar

imageReleased November 25th,2015image

 I have to admit that this movie was a super cute adn tear jerker, but any true Disney kid(not disney channel)knows that most Disney Movies have a life lesson, that when you get older  you can come to grips with the story the movie wants to tell.  This movie has a cute little Dinosaur name Arlo who wanted to prove to his family that he was good enough to earn his mark . By proving this, Arlo’s dad  told him to kill the critter (Spot) that kept eating all their food to survive. Just like many parents wanting their children to get over their fears and know that they will be okay when its their time to be on their own.  There are so many cute parts in this movie that I will not say because it would spoil it for your guys. My favorite clip is when Arlo takes Spot to the field that Arlo’s took him and the fireflies were floating around them.Most Dinosuar movies there T-Rex is always a Bad guy(lol) well in this movie Butch(Played by Sam Elliott)is a cowboy which is pretty ironic for his character but, its funny because Dinosaurs are more human like in this movie and the human-like characters are animal like. It was just a very cute movie.

MovieReview: The Perfect Guy

I have been every opinionated lately, I always want to give my imput on various things such as Items, Movies, Clothes, World Events, etc. There is so many movies that have been coming out that I have been trying to see and I am trying to catch up to speed.

First Movie that I will be Reviewing  The Perfect Guy with Michael Ealy and Morris Chesnut.

ThePerfectGuyPoster

Storyline of the Movie Provided to you by IMDb

After a painful breakup, successful lobbyist Leah Vaughn (Sanaa Lathan) jumps into a passionate relationship with a charming stranger (Michael Ealy). When her ex-boyfriend (Morris Chestnut) resurfaces in her life she has to figure out who she should trust and who she should fear. Written by Sony Pictures Entertainment

Of course when Michael Ealy or Morris Chestnut is in a movie the ladies go crazy(Not for me sorry fellas).  I watched this moviea few nights ago andI was just in “WOW”. I Truly enjoyed the movie to an extent. I Liked how Morris Chestnut ‘s character figures out that he needs to MAN up and take responsiblities for what he wants in life because, it’s true Women don’t want to keep telling their lover, “Hey I am ready to be with you full heartedly and either we work this out or you find someone else.” There is no problem with what you want. I will honestly say that when you leave someone because you wanted to rush your sometimes learn and deal with things the hardway.  Its always great to be in the arms of another because, the one you were with wasn’t doing what they were suppose to or they don’t make you feel wanted, or sexy. No one wants a BORING lover. So that much of the movie I liked.  Its something about Sanaa Lathans characters when she is in movies they always betray her character to be one of those stuck up “im too good ” to wait kind of role which just makes me not want to watch movies with her in because you pretty much know how its going to end. Now Michael Ealy’s character despite the stalkerish character was very mysterious and intising if I am allowed to say . He is a little crazy but something thats good. I would have to give this movie a 5/10 because I felt like its your typical story line. If the movie has either Morris Chestnut or Michael Ealy  in it that its going to be along the lines of, he’s trying to get the girl or win the girl back.
