Finally!!! I’ve read the book before the movie! Yes! Buuuut unless I retrieve it from my stack of books in storage, I can’t remember all the details. It’s been a while but I do recall it being guuuud. I’ve remained hooked on ZANE and I’ve read several of her books. I like her style of writing, raw and intense, which is how I expect this movie to be.

Whatchu talkin’ ’bout Widget?!

#BLOGGING101 University has inspired me to take my blogging experience to the next level!



If you will just follow those cute little eyes and take a gander at my sidebar (yes I said “gander”) you will see that I’ve gone widget crazy! How exciting!

I take quite a few photos when attending events or movie screenings, especially if there are celebrity sightings. I’ve developed a CelebritySelfie habit. So fun if you can snap a good one! Sooo, what better advertisement than SHUTTERFLY and its affiliates! YAY!

I DVR and watch #TheEllenShow daily and I notice that SHUTTERFLY partners with her a lot to help change the lives of deserving individuals. I’ve shed a few tears at the featured heart warming stories.

The amazing offer below is so nice! This photo book will make an awesomely thoughtful and sentimental keepsake gift just in time for the holidays!

I’m grateful for the #Blogging101 experience! Looking to make more awesome improvements and add to the community of fabulous bloggers!

Taken Trilogy

It really needs no explanation, it’s Liam Neeson doing what he does best and I love it! Of course it’s predictable, he’s kicking butt and taking absolutely no names but that’s what his fans love.


I screened “A Walk Among the Tombs”. A friend gave my son a poster. I haven’t had posters on my wall since I was in love with Michael Jackson and Ralph Macchio as the Karate Kid when I was a tween but I must admit, it’s a hot poster. The movie was dark and had that mystery novel feel since it was an adaptation of the book by Lawrence Block. Slightly predictable but again, it’s Liam Neeson.

It’s worth the big screen because his movies are meant to be viewed that way and there’s enough action to keep you entertained.


WGCI Sprite Lounge “Who is Mike Jay?”

Who is Mike Jay? I have absolutely no idea.

I saw the invite on WGCI website and thought he looks like a nice young man that MY DAUGHTER would like to meet and greet. Did I have any ulterior motives to play match maker for my baby girl up?! Of course not! wink…

She stood me up….

I decided to honor the invite so I could find out who this Mike Jay really was. He’s a cute young man and we share the same birthday.
Welcome to the June5crew Mike Jay!

MY DAUGHTER should have joined me. I’m sure she would have enjoyed him. I did. He’s made some outstanding accomplishments in the music business thus far. He’s even written for my #CougarCrush Mr. Chris Brown.




I now know who Mike Jay is!
He is very talented. He gave a great performance. If YOU don’t know who Mike Jay is, I’m believing you will very soon. He’s one to watch!!



Fifty Shades of Grey

Get out of my head Yonce! When you and the hubby were On the Run in Chicago, you did not stop by my place. I was only 5 minutes away, gurl.

At the end of this video, Yonce’s voice has haunted me. I know she doesn’t say this but I keep hearing uh oh uh oh you’re in trouble. So I’m wondering what I’ve done that has my guilty conscious using Beyoncé to taunt me?

Oh now I remember….

I’m probably in the minority when it comes to Fifty Shades of Grey. I attempted to read the book when it first appeared a few years ago but being a Zane fan, I found the first 2 sample chapters simple in comparison. I was never interested again even when fans of the trilogy tried to convince me to read it. I couldn’t do it.

However, I was intrigued when the trailer hit. Let’s see if the movie will be better than my sample read. At first look, it’s just as simple and a bit boring. I wasn’t impressed.

But Yonce kept taunting me so I watched it a few more times. I get it!

This simple looking trailer with its simple looking leading stars reminds me of a really good bottle of Reisling. It’s light, smooth and easy. By the time you’re done, you don’t realize how intoxicated you are until you try to walk.

Fifty Shades of a Grey in all it’s simplicity may seem underwhelming at first but I’m guessing that viewers won’t realize how tantalized they are until their trying to exit the theater.

We shall see….

Don’t listen to my sister!

The thing about my sister and I, we always have completely different versions of the same event. She say potato, I say french fries with ketchup please.

She thinks my obsession with “Rewards” programs is borderline crazy….I say, I like earning points, getting perks and discounts for things I do everyday. Show me the rewards and I’m a loyal customer!

I get a warm fuzzy feeling at the thought of earning an extra 30 points with my DD rewards app when I make a purchase after 2pm. I’m only a few points away from a FREE French Vanilla Iced Coffee.

I enjoyed quite a few hazel nut frappuccinos with caramel/hazel drizzle and my son, vanilla bean frapp with extra caramel drizzle, to become GOLD member at Starbucks. FREE drink on my birthday!

My ICON card thrills me with every discount movie and FREE refill.

And my AMC Stubs card, well, I’ve got a bonus seductively waiting, wanting me to cash it in for a FREE combo. Yes!

So of course my rewards senses started to tingle when I heard I could earn rewards and discounts on traveling. Stopped me in my tracks!!

Say what now?! How can this be true? I can google and get a good travel deal, right? Let me be honest, it’s makes my brain hurt when I try to put a vacation package together that’s affordable for my family and I. It can be overwhelming. I studied Hospitality Management so I understand the Travel & Hospitality Industry but limited in navigating the perks.

Hello YTB Travel Network!
