Hi friends! I have a few holiday treats for you this week that I think you will enjoy over the Thanksgiving holidays. Let’s get straight to it!
I watched a new Christmas movie on Netflix called Holidate. Do not go into this movie thinking it will be like a Hallmark movie; think of it more like a little naughty comedy & you will like it so much more. I laughed out loud multiple times.
Emma Roberts’ character is tired of being setup by her mother, sister, & everyone else so she makes a deal with a random dude for a holidate – a date for every holiday. This movie was hilarious, charming, & not for kids. There are a lot of actors you’d know in it as well.
Two: I read another book
Y’all, I am out of my reading rut. Last weekend I read a book in 2 days – The City Baker’s Guide to Country Living by Louise Miller. I loved this book! The whole time I kept thinking the main character was like if Sookie & Lorelai from Gilmore Girls were the same person. If you like GG, or Hart of Dixie, or Virgin River then you will love this book.
I laughed. I cried. I fell in love with these characters.
Three: Dash & Lily
I have another Netflix find for you, Dash & Lily. This is such a cute little show – it is very YA but I still loved it.
This show is 1 season, 8 30-minute episodes. Dash hates Christmas, but he grows to love it through a scavenger hunt, of sorts, left in a journal by Lily. It’s so cute!
Four: Black Owned Small Businesses
Check out this great list of Black owned small business to for your Christmas shopping this year! This list was curated by @paulapromotesstuff on IG.
That’s it for this week; I don’t have a fifth thing. I hope you all have a great, but small & local Thanksgiving. Have fun, wash your hands, & wear a mask.
