The $28

So I was on IG a few days ago and stumbled across a very interesting post...... 


 

I reposted to my own social media to gather responses.... And I was slightly shocked.
With the average millennial being so creative (and broke, lets be honest..we are broke ), I was looking for answers that were a little well.....different than what I got...Especially after the all posts about the '$200 date' and what all a woman would have to do to receive a $200 date..... 

Now personally I have been on dates on the $100-200 range and some on the $20-40 range, (BIG difference I know) and contrary to popular belief I have had more fun on cheaper dates that have not required me to leave the comfort of my kicks and leggings .........


So since I LOVE a challenge (and saving some coins), I have created a list with links of $28 or less dates to take  Bae on this spring/summer 17.... You will thank me later..

  1. Groupon (one of my favorite sites ever) has a comedy show for two, for $15.... If the comic is funny or not, you can always bond over how good (or bad) this guys is and  still have $13 left over to blow....  
  2. One of my favorite places in Cleveland is the zoo ,and for $13.25 per person (and FREE on Monday) it could be one of yours!  
  3. I am super surprised how many people actually have never been to a drive in movie, especially because at $20 a carload (for TWO movies) it is actually cheaper than going to a regular movie, you can wear anything, and lets face it if you date a woman like me, the snacks will be cheaper because you never know what I will pull out my purse ....  
  4. The Cleveland of Museum of Art is FREE and has some awesome areas for picnics 
  5. The Cleveland Museum of Natural History is $8 per person for  spontaneous Wednesday night (I really like museums ) 
  6. While I appreciate a good Netflix and Chill' session, it has been done to death..... Give Bae an experience, add some pillows/blankets, snacks, cocktails etc the thought and effort will be appreciated 
  7. Speaking of in home dates, take a trip to Five Below (or Michael's with coupon in hand of course ) and the grocery store to create a In Home Paint n' Sip 
  8. Chopped at home- I love the Food Network show 'Chopped' and saw on Pinterest where people actually created dates out cooking dinner from random items out of Chopped style box ..How cute is that??? So clip some coupons, clean out the fridge, hit the grocery store and get to work!  
  9. If you know cooking is not a strong point, Groupon has a Hibachi for Two for $13 in Cleveland.... 

So there is my list.... 
Now I can't say that this list was super easy however, I must admit $28 can go pretty far if you put your mind (and wallet) to it.... 


So yes $28 is enough to take a woman out on a date

  1. I think 6,7,8 are REALLY good suggestions. Puts a spin on the whole complaint that people son't appreciate the chill vibe anymore. But chill vibe doesn't mean that it should be void of intentional effort!

Fashion cues for the Attractive and Mature....

For some reason everyone wants to claim to be 'grown and sexy'.....And for some reason cant dress the part... So Ive created my own phrase "this isnt for the grown and sexy,this is for the mature and attractive"....On the strength that those of us who actually are 'grown and sex' do not have to remind those around us EVERY 5 MINS or attend events named after this fad saying.....Attractive and mature have the form of dress that states it. So take these few helpful hints.... 1-Ladies;your jewelry needs to be simple and functional.A few simple pieces (not made of PLASTIC or from the hair store) say alot ....Perfect examples are.... a cocktail ring a silver 'return to Tiffany&co' bracelet or just something lite to put around your wrist a pearl necklace;classic AND sexy. a plain gold hoops <==NO,i repeat NO doorknockers a pearl earrings 2-Step your shoe game up,purchase a good CLASS pair of shoes What is a good pair of shoes you ask?A good pair of

I kinda did a thing......Nothing major...

The tale of two identities.

As children, most of us are raised to go to college, get good jobs and strive for greatness. As black children, most of us are raised to go to college, be better than 'them' so you can't be denied, strive for greatness and act accordingly in spaces that are not our own. As a lot of us grow up, we take heed to our lessons, aiming for success, entering spaces (and tax brackets) that weren't able to be accessed by our grandparents and sometimes our own parents, but struggle because we aren't taught the rules of 'the game' nor do we start out from a equal space than our colleagues.  Imagine taking your 5 year old child, telling them they have learn all the 1st grade through 6th grade material at once in a room full of 11 year olds who are already dealing with advance placement work... So we are forced to learn on our own and quickly, how to 'act' ,where to be authentic ourselves, which hairstyles to wear ,what to wear to off hours company events,
