Rumor Has It Destiny’s Child Is Planning A 20th Anniversary Reunion Tour, And We Are Saying Yes, Yes, Yes, Yes, Yes — MadameNoire

Help me as I try to control my excitement!

Did you know that I’m a total Beyoncé fan?  I’ve been to three concerts, indoors and outdoors. I’ve traveled for miles, took days off from work, and stood in pouring rain in stadiums just to see Beyoncé perform live. I’ve brought every CD, downloaded and streamed every song. I’ve purchased her Merch and watched everything that she’s ever been in from TV to movies to YouTube videos of her when she was little. I love Beyoncé and I’ve vowed to myself to attend every tour she does from here on out.  That’s just that!

In my mind, Beyoncé and I are friends.  She’s down to Earth, she’s dedicated to her fans and her purpose in life.  She always give more than 100% at everything she does.  She’s pro-black, pro-woman, and she puts on one heck of a show! The girl can truly sing and that’s no lie.

So, as a faithful member of the BeeHive and a long time fan of Destiny’s Child…I’m just sitting here waiting patiently for – if and when – these tour dates drop.  And let’s be fair, I’ve seen Kelly Rowland in concert as well. But only once. So the joy of seeing the trio group come together for a reunion tour has me so excited for 2020. Therefore, I’m saving my coins so that I’ll be ready to purchase tickets WHENEVER that time comes.

If the tour happens, I imagine that each of the ladies would perform a number of their solo songs along with their Destiny’s Child songs. Taking us from church music, to soul music, to club and pop music and me singing to the top of my lungs to number one hits since the 90’s.

This tour would be so lit! 🔥

Check out the article below from MadameNoire for a deeper look inside the story.

Tell me you’re excited as I am!!!

My Favorite Wine Accessory

The time is now, we’ve hit our Summer months, which mean hotter and longer days for sure.  With the abundance of sunshine most people opt to stay outdoors as long as possible.

Nothing says Summer to me, than sitting outside on the porch as the Sun goes down.  Or perhaps, a picnic in the park or a family reunion with family that you haven’t seen in years. Continue reading

The ABC Car Game

For most families, family vacation takes place during the Summer and it’s that time of the year again.

But before you pack up the car and load everyone in, and even before you stop to get gas and snacks, I want to you teach you all a fun game to play that will provide entertainment and fun while you’re going from one destination to another..

My family calls this game, The ABC Game.  My dad taught this to my sister and I when we were little girls and we’ve been playing it ever since.  I’m not even sure if it’s a real game or not.  I just know it’s something that was always fun for us and we’ve since taught it to our children.

2019 Music Festivals

Music Festivals take place all around the Country typically during the Spring and Summer months.  Some really are extreme while others are quite laid back.  Typically, these festivals take place over a weekend; which allows you to not only enjoy the musical acts and daytime activities but also a chance to explore the city and take part in some cultural activities as well.

If you’ve been thinking about a weekend getaway, here’s the perfect time to do it,  especially if you enjoy music.  My suggestion would be to do a little research.  Go to the festival that’s affordable for you and also the one where there are more musical acts that you would enjoy.  Don’t delay, some of these festivals are around the corner (Links below)!

Coachella– This festival takes place in California over two different weekends in April.  April 12-14 and April 19-21.  There are tons of options available to you so that you can really make the festival your own.  There’s also a wide range of musical guest for this festival.

Something in the Water– If you’re looking for a festival near the beach, this festival is the one for you.  This event will take place in Virginia Beach, VA, April 26-28.  The oceanfront and convention center will serve as venues.  It is said that there will be a pop-up church service and karaoke featuring trap music.

Roots Picnic– This one day event takes center stage in Philly on June 1st.  Early bird tickets start at $69.50 which is very inexpensive compared to other festivals.  However, keep in mind that this is a one day event while others may be for an entire weekend.

Essence– New Orleans is always the place to be and this is where this festival takes place.  I personally attended this festival in 2014 during their 20th Anniversary.  The icon Prince was the headliner.  We attended concerts 3 nights in a row.  We also enjoyed the free day parties, saw a ton of celebrities, and did some sightseeing on our own. This festival is from July 4-7.

These are just a few of the festivals that I’m aware of and the ones that are most trusted.  If it looks too good to be true, like that FYRE festival.  Run!  Did you see those documentaries?  OMG!

The Perfect Wine Cocktail

Today is your lucky day because I’m giving away one of my top secret drinks that I’ve stumbled upon.

I wish I could take the full credit for coming up with this sweet bubbly sensation that takes place during every sip of this cocktail; but I can’t.

I first became aware of such thing by listening to Reid This Reid That podcast hosted by Jacque Reid and Joy Ann Reid.  If you’re familiar with either of these ladies you know off top that they are leaders and journalist at the top of their game and are all about black girl magic.  Their podcast is fun and informative, covering topics from A-Z; whether it’s a recap on your latest TV show or politics–they have you covered.

They are also very serious about their wine and every podcast there’s a “wine down” segment where they inform their listeners about the wine of the day and just break down what has been going on in their lives over the past week (you should tune in if you haven’t already).

So one day I’m listening to the fabulous podcast of Reid This Reid That where they mentioned their drink of the day was Prosecco mixed with a splash of St. Germain.  Now I was familiar with Prosecco, it’s an Italian white wine with a crisp refreshing taste that has become one of my absolute favorites.  I even served it at my wedding!  However, I was not familiar with the St. Germain.  After a little Googling I found out that St. Germain was made from Elderflowers and was a sweet liqueur.  img_6216

The next week I’m tuning in to the podcast, because I’m a regular listener, and again they mentioned they were having Prosecco and St. Germain!  So at this point I knew I had to get my hands on this liqueur.  As a wine lover I had to make sure their praise of this cocktail was legit.

I eventually made my way to the ABC store where I would purchase the St. Germain.  I browsed a few aisle like I knew what I was looking for.  But truth be told, I had no clue.  In an attempt to not waist much more of my time I decided to solicit help from an associate.

Soon after I would do my first trial run with mixing the two drinks together. Baaaaaaby (In my New Orleans voice)! This cocktail had me on the edge of my seat.  I couldn’t believe how great this drink was.  Immediately, I had my whole life together.  It’s light, it’s sweet, it’s crisp, and it’s GOOD.

It’s the perfect drink if you just need something after work to unwind.  It’s perfect if you’re having a brunch or hanging with your girlfriends.  For me, I love it when I just want some ME time.  On a Sunday afternoon, I’ll pull out my good champagne flutes (you know the real crystal ones), pour me a glass or two, and just take a break from everything in efforts to relax my mind.  It’s perfect!

Ladies and Gents….this is a must have!  Please let me know if you give this wine duo a try.  I’m eager to know your thoughts and what your taste buds are thinking!

Thank you to the Reid ladies for such a delightful drink! Cheers 🥂
