What I’m Digging #5

This edition of W.I.D. is an older post that I forgot to type out. Oops! The newest editions of W.I.D. will be posted in late December.

talenti     Food: I’m on this whole eating better personal movement, but this chick still loves her sweets. My bud has been very vocal about his love for gelato, so I finally searched for his highly recommended treat. I picked up a pint of Talenti Caramel Cookie Gelato and I will never be the same. I’ve been changed, y’all! The gelato was extra creamy, the caramel was rich and flavorful, and those damn cookie bits were hella crunchy. I devoured that sweet goodness with a quickness.

stTV Shows: Stranger Things came out of nowhere and turned into an instant classic! I wasn’t even expecting the show to be as incredible as it is. I figured I would enjoy it based on comments from a few Facebook peeps, but damn I really loved the show! Without giving too much away, the show is about a young boy who goes missing, and his loved ones frantically search for him. If you adore all things eighties, sci-fi, and nerd culture then check out this show.

qsQueen Sugar is a show on the OWN network brought to us by visionary filmmaker Ava DuVernay. It’s a show about three estranged siblings who come together after a tragedy. now, I wasn’t on the hunt for a new show, but decided to give the show a chance. I’m loving it!! All of the show’s elements: acting, writing, cinematography, etc are excellent. I’m hoping for a season two!

stevie Books: Although, I’m a massive Stephen King aficionado, I haven’t read his entire body of work, but that’s about to change. My plan is to spend the remainder of this year- and the next, reading all the books I’ve never read by Uncle Stevie. I just finished “Misery”, and it was an amazing masterpiece.

Hope you enjoyed my list!

Cheers, homies!

Current Reads #3

eat Reading at least two books at a time is usually how I roll, but currently I’m just devoted to one book. Yeah, I’m totally shocked at this myself. Eat. Pray. Love. was released well over a decade ago. I remember everyone being absolutely in love with the book; once Oprah talked about E.P.L. it then became a phenomenon. Last month I decided that now was definitely the time to read this book. I’m needing all the positive, and inspirational books during this last half of the year. I figured I would dig the book, but I couldn’t predict how much I’ve connected with it.

Elizabeth Gilbert and I are from very different walks of life, but I swear everything I’ve read so far has really spoken to my soul. Ms. Gilbert seemingly had recited passages from my journals… how was it that she knew exactly how I felt on a variety of subjects?! It’s completely insane!

I’m taking my time with reading E.P.L. because I want to savor every page. I’m loving it!

Cheers, homies!
