#FatSnacks Friday: Cupcakes in Ice Cream Cones

Happy Fat Snacks Friday Cuties, It is our favorite day of the week at mimicutelips.com because *insert dramatic drum roll* IT IS FAT SNACKS FRIDAY! I've had this one on my virtual agenda for almost a year. July is National Ice Cream Month so this was sort of perfect. These are faux ice cream but it totally counts. Did you know that you could bake cupcakes in ice cream cones? Prior to this I so didn't know that was even a thing. Listen I've got levels to all of this fatness.

Six Flags America Splashwater Falls, Hurricane Harbor

Hey Cuties, This weekend was a hot one, I'm talking hot for no reason hot. The dope folks at Six Flags invited us out for a day of fun at their Splashwater Falls inside Hurricane Harbor and a Crab Feast. Yes, they gave us complimentary entrance into the park and then fed us. It doesn't get any better than this. I shared my roller coaster experience and y'all laughed at me. From here on out it is all water park all the time.

WOE MAGAZINE LAUNCH RECAP

WOE Magazine Launch Recap

Hey Cuties, On Monday I mentioned my full weekend and attending the WOE Magazine Launch event. Here we go... WOE stands for Women of Excellence, well I'll drink to that. I won't go into details as to why I'm a woman of excellence just know that I am and you are too. I love attending events but knowing what to wear is always the hardest part for me. I'm an emotional dresser, is that a thing? I dress according to my current feeling, a feeling I was to embody or a feeling I want to give off. On this day I wanted to go for a comfy cube vibe. When you attend events as media you do more standing and moving around instead of sitting and being cute. Always cute though...

Essence Festival Recap- Musician Edition #EssenceFest

Essence Festival Recap: Musician Edition

Hey Cuties,

Happy Monday, I hope you had a great weekend. Ours was full, on Friday I attempted a DIY #fail. On Saturday I attended the WOE Magazine Launch which was amazing. I followed that up with a baby shower with the family; I won two games. *body roll* Sunday we went jumping around at an indoor trampoline place with friends, it was 21 of us in total.  After all that jumping we hit up the Silver Diner still 21 deep. Add in a couple of errands and then back home. Did you tune into the first episode of season 3 of POWER? The cast of Power was at Essence Festival but I didn't get a chance to catch up with them. I did however catch up with all of these singers; I can't wait to spill the tea below.

Essence Festival Recap- Actors Edition

Essence Festival Recap: Actors Edition

Hey Cuties, This has been a tough week, I was all excited about sharing my Essence experience and then I couldn't form the words. Real life is happening and it had me stuck. I have two black men in my home that I worry about constantly. I don't want anyone to be threatened by the color of their skin. In the spirit of all of this brown-ness I'm sharing part 2 of my trip.

#FatSnacks Friday: New Orleans

Hey Cuties,

Friday is my favorite day of the week here at mimicutelips.com because I get to share my love of food with you. This week's #FatSnacks Friday is about the eats I had while in New Orleans. This is part 3 of the New Orleans series. I didn't get to eat nearly as much as I wanted to but I got in the basics for sure.

TRAMPING AROUND THE 504 (NEW ORLEANS)

Tramping around the 504 (New Orleans)

Hey Cuties, I'm fresh off an amazing five days in New Orleans and still sorting through over a thousand pictures. Three days of Essence Festival that was so freaking major. It was so much going on I didn't even do half of the activities and still had a ball. I posted tons of pictures and videos on IG and Snap as promised. Even with all of that I still have so much to share.  I'm going to do a five party harmony, five party harmony.

Love the Hair You Wear {Event Recap}

Hey Cuties, My Hump Day Wednesday is jammed packed with things to do. I fly out to the New Orleans for the Essence Festival in the morning.  I’ve done all the laundry in the house, I’ve been cleaning and packing and cleaning off the DVR and about fifty other things. I always feel like I have time to do this and that and then I’m always in a rush. I will be posting to social media {Twitter, IG, FB & Snap} the entire time so make sure you take the trip with me. Hello, the ultimate #FatSnacks.
