Sometimes, you just need to chill out in your robe, and take a breather. Unwind this weekend with our weekend picks.
WATCH THIS: MOONLIGHT
There is nothing but extraordinary things to be said about Moonlight. It won three Academy Awards at the 2017 Oscars, including Best Writing Adapted Screenplay, Best Supporting Actor, and of course, Best Picture. Moonlight is the first LGBT movie to win Best Picture, and Mahershala Ali is the first Muslim to win an Oscar.
Moonlight is based off of the play, In Moonlight Black Boys Look Blue. The story is about a young, timid, gay black man growing up in Miami. We watch him unravel into an adult, and the difficulties that accompany him along the way.
The powerful and groundbreaking film Moonlight is now available everywhere.
LISTEN TO THIS: MiC LOWRY
Liverpool-born gentleman Michael Welch, Ben Sharples, Kaine Ofoeme, Akia Jones, and Delleile Ankrah create MiC LOWRY. This modern R&B group gives us serious 90’s vibes. The boys first met five years ago, in a youth arts training centre called Positive Impact in Liverpool. They bonded over a love for vintage R&B, and created a sound that is distinct and fresh. Don’t mistake these guys for The Beatles, or One Direction.
There is no wondering why their hit single “Oh Lord” has over 40 million streams worldwide. The harmony of these five different voices together is pure ecstasy. Once you listen to their acappella breakdowns, you’ll be put into a trance. Their voices are mesmerizing.
Listen to MiC LOWRY this weekend to get ready for their guest appearance on The Wendy Williams Show next week!
READ THAT: PLEASE DON’T SIT ON MY BED IN YOUR OUTSIDE CLOTHES
Don’t you DARE get on the bed in your street clothes!
Sometimes after a long day, you just want to jump into bed and relax, but this is not the way to go. Good Housekeeping explains exactly why we need to follow this rule, which Wendy lives by. We’ll give you a hint: just think about where your clothes have been all day. Subway commutes, public bathrooms, the lobby of a doctor’s office…need we say more?

Start off with some wholesome chocolate chip pancakes. Next, pick a night to experiment with potato chip-crusted chicken. Last, you can chill out on the couch with Moonlight and eat this savory mud pie.
We promise you’ll be happy you indulged in these delicious bites!
