Girls Trip - Good for Mind, Body, and Soul


I had the honor of seeing this hilariously funny movie with of course, my girls.  Girls Trip was a great comedy power packed with non stop laughs.  Women of all ages, races, and economic backgrounds could relate to Sasha, Ryan, Lisa, and Dina.

This isn't a movie spoiler alert AT ALL.  All of the women traveled together to New Orleans for what? Well you'd have to see the movie to learn more about that.

What I loved was I went to see this movie with my girls and we are quite similar to the characters in Girl Trip.  In our group of 4 there's 1 married, 1 divorced and 2 single ladies.  This movie has us ready to hit up Essence Fest to create our own version of Girl Trip complete with a selfie stick to record our, well some of our adventures.

If you have a love for travel, like myself.  This year I've been to Aruba and Michigan, Georgia, Paris, Milan, Rome, and Malta are the remaining destinations for my vacation trek this year I have something for you.  A travel hack guide complete with information on how to travel 5 star on a 1 star budget.

This guide is being offered to you because it is 2017 for the low price of $2.17.  The money you save and cash you earn back by implementing some of the methods is worth hundreds if not thousands of dollars, depending upon how often you travel and to wear.  No, you don't have to become a travel agent to save money travel.

Travel is good for the mind, body and soul as it allows one to detach from their everyday world and explore all that a new city, state, country or island has to offer.
