Movie Night: FENCES


Troy Maxson, a former Negro-league baseball player, played magnificently by Denzel Washington is fighting with bitterness, emotional detachment and the struggles of providing for his family in 1950’s Pittsburgh. As the story unfolds, it becomes apparent that despite mistakes, and under layers of frustration,  resentment, and anger  Troy loves his family.  

Just a few minutes into the movie adaptation of the August Wilson Play FENCES, and I was captivated. A real ensemble cast of relatable characters this film will take you through a range of emotions.

Take a quick look at the trailer.

My Battle with Dry Skin


Detergents, soaps, even some fabrics can sometimes be irritating to my already dry and sensitive skin. Some days it’s so rough and tight it feels and even looks like crocodile skin. It probably, definitely doesn’t help that I enjoy very long, very, very hot showers. As much as preach about skin care, I know better than to shower with water at the temperature I do – seriously it’s like hot tub hot – but for whatever reason, I can’t shower in warm water. My water intake leaves something to be desired; I am holding myself to getting better with that this year. I do take a lot of fish oil and other supplements, but it’s not enough, and my skin feels the effects of the weather and the water, and like the Sahara, my skin gets insanely dry, irritated and itchy. One tip to help with dry skin issues is to apply your moisturizing products as soon as you get out of the shower, and while your skin is still damp. I rarely do this; I should, but I don’t. I tried it for a little while, but so many lotions would be super slippery, not absorb completely and leave this yucky film on my skin when applied to it damp and I just couldn’t get on board with it. When I step out of the shower and lightly towel dry the first thing I do is wrap up in my robe. A little while later, after been distracted by something on the T.V. a text or Facebook notification on my phone, a noise outside, a thought of something I need to write down, and a myriad of other random things I realize I haven’t moisturized.
