All the hype was absolutely worth it. The Lee Daniels film Precious is a story beautifully composed exposing a reality; young, unloved and abused living in NYC during the late 80s. Completely compelling.

This movie is humorous, heart wrenching and frank. I never read the book Push, which the film is based on, so this only tells me the book is ten times better. Gabourey Sidibe portrays this broken spirit that finally breaks through in such a triumphant way. You can't help but root for Precious. But besides the main character you get a glimpse into the lives of many of the supporting characters and begin to understand why people are the way they are.

Mo'nique does such a flawless job in playing a heartbroken mother that   lets her anguish turn into hate for her own child. I hated her, pitied her and understood her all at the same time. The woman is so complex, suffering from a lot of deep emotional hang ups. And there's already Oscar buzz! I respected her as an actress in this role because she had to have pull the character from such a deep place. I believed her!!

Grab a friend, a loved one and go see Precious. You will leave theater hopeful, grateful and with a joke or two. I'd definitely see it again. Could be this generations The Color Purple and I do not say that lightly. Take a glance at the trailer, lovelies!

So, I Chopped All My Hair Off. Now, What?

Hey lovelies. I want to apologize to you all. I was going to give up on writing this blog and I thought about writing again and again and finally got the gall to continue. J'adore Miss.Emme will be continuing. No more major hiatuses! Promise!

So, back to the story!! As you know I've been transitioning on this quest to natural hair. Anyone who knows me also knows that I'm a little bit of a control freak and a bit on the impatient side [hey! everyone has their flaws, right?].

With this desperation to be free of permed ends, I strolled into my bathroom and commenced in cutting off my own hair. I made the first few snips and thought "what the hell am I doing!?!?" Yet, I couldn't stop and the further I got I realized there was no turning back.

When I was done I was scared, I was shocked at myself and I honestly thought I made a huge mistake. I kept a hat on for a few days only sent pictures and warnings to certain people lol. But I slowly and surely grew to love it more and more.

It's healthy, strong, soft and really cute. Oh, I can't forget well taken care of. Plus, I can wear a lot more cool hair accessories. I'm proud to be natural and loving my big chop more and more everyday!
