Indie Movie Time - The Strange Thing About the Johnsons

In case you didn't know, I am an indie movie fanatic! I am intrigued at the twists, turns and unexpected jolts that I experience while watching indie films. They make me sad, confused, angry and happy -- keeping me suspended and left wanting more each time. Recently I checked in on one of my favorite vloggers (my secret) who said that this film (The Strange Thing About the Johnsons) is a must see -- so I watched it.

I have to say, it put into question how we as a culture deal with victimization, masculinity and parenthood. I was perplexed and still am. If you are squeamish, scare easily or not into thought provoking films, please don't watch. If you're like me and look for a cutting edge indie fix -- then watch. I loved it. I'm still searching for more to share with you while I'm stuck in my house sick with allergies (yuck) so hopefully I'll find some more indie stuff soon. Stay tuned!

Become a Made Man, or Woman

Nicole Ari Parker and Boris Kodjoe fit so well together -- and their fashion sense is exquisite. I couldn't help but to take notes on who dressed them! Boris and his brother Patrick launched their own custom fashion line called World of Afla , where men can design and order custom suits at affordable prices.

Nicole is wearing Kiki Clothing from Ghana - inspired by a designer who personally fit her for the dress. I am in love with those earrings!

Summer is officially here -- time to wear less, do more and shine with the sun :-)
