T.G.I.F. 7 Fun and Exciting Ways to Enjoy the Weekend

tgif 1

Thank the lord it’s Friday..finally! I don’t know about you guys but I like the weekend. You can sleep in duh! Plus it’s the time you can go hang with your girls and relax after a long week’s worth of bills, worrying about the next move, work or guy drama. So to start this weekend off right let’s be positive and enjoy ourselves while we’re young. You only live once right? But that doesn’t mean to not take care of ourselves and our bodies.

If you haven’t read the last blog post, then go HERE and check it out for dope beats to soundtrack your life this weekend. (I know. A bit cheesy) Keep it PG for all minors ok! But the music will have you feeling some type of way until that dreadful Monday morning wake up call. In the mean time, IT”S FRIDAY!! (Drink at a healthy pace. No drinking and driving ladies and gents.)

 

1. Go Dancing

And no, I don’t mean go clubbing..which you can totally do, try something different and sign up for a fun hip hop dance class. This is a great way to get in shape and goof around at the same time. Dancing is a lot more cardio than you think. It’ll have you sweating in no time. You hardly even realize you’re working out. Trust me, I just took a hip hop class over this last weekend and fell in love. I found the exercise that will work for me! Classes tend to be pretty cheap as well. You can go alone or convince friends to tag along with you. Guilt them if you have to.(video from Janelle Ginestra’s channel)

2. Schedule an impromptu photo shoot with friends

Do you, a friend or someone you know have a camera? Then get a group together and organize a last-minute photo shoot. It’ll be fun and no one has to ever see these pictures if you don’t want. They will be fun to look at while at work for a quick laugh or to hold blackmail against a friend. Drinks can always be added.  Insert evil laugh here 

3. Go to a Drive-in Movie Theatre

I used to go see movies at drive-ins all of the time when I was younger. They are fun and you can make a cool trip out of them. You can take blankets, chairs and sneak snacks into the outside theaters (the concessions there are hella expensive lol) You also get to watch two movies for the price of one! Can’t beat that. This could be a chance to snuggle up close to a guy or girl you’ve been crushing on if you invite friends and make a group and make something special out of it. And if you don’t live close to one try making your own drive in. If you’re really lazy then just stay in and have a Netflix night, no harm in that either.

4. Throw a Pinterest Party!

If you’re like me then you have at least a dozen boards on Pinterest full of things you keep saying that you’ll try. Wether it’s the fitness board that you’ve added hundreds of pins to but haven’t started really looking at or that DIY crafts board that you were so excited about months ago, try them now. Right Now! This weekend with friends. Blast music while doing them and watch how much fun you’ll be having…you won’t even remember why you hadn’t tried this before. Add drinks if you want *wink wink

5. Iron Chef “Healthy version” contest…or not

Invite friends (guys, girls or both) for some fun and food! You can even make it into a battle of the sexes. Cook out of the items in your kitchen (make sure to stock up on food) or better yet have the friends bring some treats with them and get creative with the dishes. Try sticking to the healthier side if you can. Or at least drink water…or something else..

6. Go To an Open Mic Night/Karaoke Bar

Theres bound to be some sort of talent in your town. Or at the very least it’ll be a fun night filled with laughs. You can laugh and crack jokes at the people brave or drunk enough to get up and sing. Did I mention there’s usually no cover and drinks? It may turn out to be an unforgettable night.

7. Try a dating app/site

Ok, you guys and girls know you’ve wanted to try it but you haven’t because you think it’s too weird and only for “old people who can’t find someone”. You would be so wrong. You never really know until you try. There’s no harm in trying. There are some pretty cool ones out there such as:

Apps/sites

Tinder

 

Coffee meets Bagel

OkCupid.com

Badoo

Zoosk

Meet Me:)

Match.com

Moco

DateHookup

POF (plenty of fish)

Dating DNA free

Skout

…These are some of the cooler dating outlets to try opposed to regular meeting,dating,etc. Don’t knock it until you it. I’m currently trying out Tinder and I’ve tried OkCupid as well as C.M.B. before. Take a chance and none of your friends have to find out if you don’t want them to and feel that embarrassed about it. You aren’t the only ones having a hard time finding that special someone. Trust.

Have a great weekend and comment below telling about your weekends. #goldsoulla

#Haircrushwednesday: Natural Hair Movement EDITION!

Ok , it is Wednesday so I couldn’t pass up the chance to do a Women Crush Wednesday post… with a little bit of a twist! Today I’m putting a spotlight on this gorgeous lady @bwatuwant, but I also wanted to talk about the increasing natural hair movement taking over.

Now…let’s just take a brief moment to fully appreciate this girl’s hair, on fleek right? Here are a few more just because I’m obsessed with her and her hair at the moment!

Sorry about that…back to the blogging. Can’t you tell how much I’m loving natural hair?!

Ok, so if you haven’t been living under a rock or better yet lazing about behind a computer screen binge watching Netflix, then you might have begun to notice girls/women in general appreciating their hair in its natural state. (The Natural Hair Movement/Community) More and more girls are going for the natural unprocessed look instead of relaxing their hair every month.

I can’t say that I haven’t been guilty of this. I mean, if you’re a black girl or bi-racial girl like me then you’ve felt the pressures of having hair that is different from most other ethnicities. Damn near all except ones of African-American decent and some islanders,Brazilians,etc. I’ve had to reevaluate myself and my hair on many occasions and I’m still learning about it and pushing myself on how to accept it. It’s tough.

It’s even worse when you have multi races courses through your veins. Growing up I was always thinking, “since I’m light-skinned why isn’t me hair more like white girls?” I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one and it’s been a long 22 years and I’m still trying to figure out what my hair’s natural texture is. But I’ve been going about it the wrong way and a lot of other girls have too. Through the years I’ve highlighted it, bleached it, cut it numerous times, and relaxed it dozens of times…none of this helps and doesn’t really solve the problem that we girls try to avoid. And that’s dealing with our raw,natural hair and accepting that it is beautiful. Straight hair is not the only way to go. Models like Stacey Hash and Miss Brit (@bwatuwant) along with many others (@kaylabella_, @cocaine_lorraine) are showing us how beautiful natural hair can be and the proper ways to take care of it.

A big misconception is that this is a problem for only black girls but women of all skin colors and hair types need to be able to love and accept their natural hair. If you are thinking of transitioning or have been for a while but haven’t had the guts to do it because you don’t want to make that “big chop” there are other ways. *I’m in the middle of transitioning and I’m doing it w/o the chop.

Below is a list of YouTubers that have great videos on transitioning hair,etc.
