When WSVN anchor/reporter and now entrepreneur, Adrianna Hopkins, reached out to us to check out her newly created app Snap it! Track it!, we immediately fell in love with the concept. The app allows you to take photos, flip them, and personalize each one with a caption on the back. It’s a great way to track your progress whether you’re in the middle of a weight loss journey or documenting the steps in a recipe. The app allows you to go beyond just the “Before & After” of a process and shows you everything that happens in between too! A photo journal for your iPhone or iPod – how awesome is that?
Intrigued? Head on over to the App Store and download Snap it! Track it! for yourself!
I recently went to Joe’s Crab Shack with my friend Felissa to celebrate her birthday and while I had a lovely time catching up with her, it was much more difficult to eat my dinner and look like the classy gal that I am (note the sarcasm). In fact, it was impossible! I had to keep getting our lovely waiter Jason to come to our table and teach me how to use the utensils. Even with his help though, I ended up leaving hungry. There’s always next time!
On this fine Friday afternoon, I am absolutely obsessed with watching Lee Daniels’ The Butler. The all-star cast, including O-PRAH! (said in my best Oprah bellow), has been on a publicity spree these past few weeks, appearing on every major media outlet to promote this movie. The Butler is inspired from the life of Eugene Allen, a former White House butler (played by Forest Whitaker as Cecil Gaines) who started off as a pantry man and went on to serve eight presidents and retire as head butler in 1986. Along with Winfrey and Whitaker, the film also stars the likes of Cuba Gooding Jr., Terrence Howard, David Oyelowo, Mariah Carey, Alex Pettyfer, Lenny Kravitz, Yaya DaCosta, Alan Rickman, Jane Fonda, Minka Kelly… the all-star list goes on. While the story is reason enough to go out and see this film, it doesn’t hurt that hotties Jesse Williams and James Marsden make appearances.
A few days ago, a trailer came out for Twenties, a show created and written by Dear White People’s Lena Waithe. I can’t say enough good things about this project. According to the Huffington Post, Twenties is already “fully funded and produced under Queen Latifah’s production company FLAVOR UNIT… [it] stars three black girls and offers fresh perceptive on what it means to be young, black and trying to figure it all out.” It’s more than just HBO Girls: The Black Version but they do both offer interesting outlooks into the lives of freshly independent millennials. I absolutely, positively need this show to be on television. Take a look for yourself here:
