In addition to finally taking a few days off from work this past weekend, I also decided to take a break from publishing Sunday’s blog post to simply just relax. Every once in awhile, I love to take part in what I like to call Lazy Sundays, which is a day to do absolutely nothing and go absolutely nowhere. Lazy Sundays are spent at home on the couch in my pajamas with food and television. It’s not something that I get to do too often, so when I do, it’s heavenly. I’ve been able to catch up on some really great Netflix shows and movies during Lazy Sundays, so I thought it would be a cool idea to let you know exactly what I’ve been watching just in case you too are looking for something new to get into!

Since next weekend is the last weekend before Christmas, I thought it would be helpful to round up a list of last-minute gift ideas for both him and her — whether it’s for your mother, father, brother, sister, significant other, or best friend.

Regina King Is A Prime Example of Why You Should Never Give Up On Your Dreams

Regina King is a prime example of why you should never give up on your dreams. The 48-year-old actress is gracing the November 2019 cover of Marie Claire’s appropriately titled Ambition Issue. For any young black girl growing up, representation is critically important. I was fortunate enough to have Regina King as a familiar face of my childhood, starring in some of my favorite movies that we deem classics in the black community such as ‘Boyz N The Hood’, ‘Poetic Justice’, ‘Higher Learning’, ‘Friday’, and ‘A Thin Line Between Love & Hate’. Not to mention, she starred as teenager Brenda Jenkins at just 13 years-old in the late 1980s sitcom, ‘227’.
