You know what’s great? When you have weirdo friends who are as weird and random as you. Stick with me, this is going somewhere.
Like six months ago, I was out (on a school night!) with my friends Jessica and Claire for some Jamaican food, drinks and gossip. The three of us have the most random conversations every time we’re together, and that night was no exception. I have no idea how the topic even came up, but Jessica casually mentioned that she has watched every movie that Stanley Tucci has made. I love Stanley Tucci so I was intrigued - turns out, she did this as a challenge with a friend of hers, like a personal bucket list thing.
So then I started thinking about what actor I love enough to want to do this type of challenge. And the answer immediately came to me - Samuel L Jackson. He’s one of my favorite actors, he’s done a variety of films, and his IMDB list is long. I scrolled through his list of roles on IMDB and I realized that I’ve only seen about a quarter of the films he’s made. So I’m setting a challenge for myself, to watch every feature film Samuel L Jackson is credited in. For the purposes of this challenge I’m skipping the shorts he made (cause I’m assuming I won’t be able to get my hands on them) but all the other feature length movies are on my agenda. I’ll also rewatch movies I’ve already seen for the purpose of the challenge.
I’ll be sharing updates periodically with what I watched and what I thought of the movie, and Sam’s performance.
This should be fun!
Also if I can pull this off, I totally might do this with an actress - any suggestions on who? Maybe Meryl?

I finally got a chance to break out my summer dresses! I got this Old Navy jersey swing dress and loved it so much, I bought a second one! I’m also wearing this maxi dress every chance I get, and best of all, it has pockets!
Have you watched Always Be My Maybe on Netflix yet? I watched it last Friday night and I loved it! It’s a really adorable romcom, but the best part is that the entire cast is people of color, and the majority are Asian. Ali Wong is so great in it, but the star for me was Randall Park (aka the dad on Fresh Off the Boat).
My Mother’s Day gift from William and Josephine has turned into my favorite daily accessory - I wear it almost everyday.
I’m still on the hunt for my Holy Grail foundation, so I took advantage of the Tarte sale to pick up the Shape Tape foundation. I love some of their other products so I’m hoping I’ll love the foundation too.
