Movies in October!

Movies in October!

October is here and it's kicking awards season off rather nicely -- and it's also pretty jam-packed! There's a very nice selection of dramas -- which includes a couple of "based on true events" ones -- a classic book thriller adaptation (that I mentioned in my Fall Reads post), and a highy anticipated (and long-awaited) sequel to a classic epic! I have my usual "maybes" too...that I'm sure some of you might enjoy and a mini list of "if that's your jam" as well!

So (as I always say) let's get to it! Here's what I plan on seeing (and hopefully you can catch a couple of these too) in the theater this month!!

Movies in September!

Movies in September!

Game of Thrones just ended (holy crap you guys -- what a season)! I'm going to really miss the cinematic beauty and storytelling of this show (also, our favorite episodic shows will be premiering later this month as well). But, we're getting closer to awards season, which (hopefully) means we'll start seeing some films that (hopefully) push boundaries and are out-of-the-box fantastic! Films that make us want to leave the bold, fresh tv shows we watch at home...to go out for the night to the theater!

I'm looking forward to a few films in September. All three of them actually have something in common -- they're based on true events! But I'm extremely excited about one in particular, starring recent Oscar winner and one of my favorite actresses Emma Stone! Along with my list of "movies to watch"...I have my "maaaybe list" and I've added one to see if "that's your jam" but that I most likely won't watch. So let's get to it shall we!

Summer Lovin' (& Intentional Living)

Summer Lovin' (& Intentional Living)

S U M M E R ! 

It's here (tomorrow to be exact), but it's already, definitely, been "feeling" like it around L.A.

This heat y'all.

This heat is no joke, and I'm from the South! :) I, of course, am grateful for this air conditioned room I'm in while writing this (and for the ocean breeze when I'm on the westside). But this heat, Lord have mercy! Lol! But back to why I'm here (and looking on the B R I G H T side)! ;)

Los Angeles is a great place to be during the summer! Aside from being so ridiculously beautiful, there are so many endless activities, possibilities and staycation ideas...that you literally can't be bored around these parts (unless you "choose" to be)!

I'm starting to fill up my summer to-do list (which includes a lot of creative projects thank goodness!) But one major "thing" aka mantra that's at the top is:

L I V I N G  with  I N T E N T I O N.

I'm sure you've heard this phrase at one point or another. It tends to get thrown around a lot. But it's a mantra I try to hold at the forefront of my mind -- intentional living, to be an active participant in my own life.

I've been living in L.A. a while and I'm about to...

Henrietta Lacks (& Oprah)

Henrietta Lacks (& Oprah)

 The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks premiered tonight on HBO (it's also on HBO Go & HBO Now as well)!

I had been looking forward to this film ever since I first saw the trailer before an episode of Big Little Lies a few weeks ago! I remember watching it and being engrossed with this story -- and fixated on Oprah Winfrey. I remember thinking, "What a minute........

It's F R I D A Y, which means -- the weekend is upon us!

What are some fun things you like to do on the weekend?  

Living in Los Angeles (and in California in general), there's always something to do. Correction, there's always something FUN to do! This beautiful state offers......
