2.3 Shrek 2
Before you judge me, this is a God tier movie and it's a romance and a comedy.... hence there is rom com potential. Spoiler alert: I did deem it a romantic comedy, but listen to find out why and to listen to me rant and rave about one of my all time favorite movies. Twitter: Instagram: Follow my blog:

It's the first episode of season 2 of Celibate and the Suburbs and we are talking about my favorite romcom, my favorite movie of all time, What's Your Number?

That One Time I Had To Reenact The Underground Railroad on A School Trip and Other Stories from 6th Grade
That title isn't clickbait... it really happened. Yes, it was as traumatizing as you're imagining. Yes, I went to an all white school. No, I'm not entirely sure how they got away with doing this. Actually I do know, because there were probably so few black kids that went to the camp where we did this. ANYWAYS. I can laugh about it now, for the most part. That's how I cope. Enjoy? I guess? It's kinda funny because it's so absurd.  Follow me on social media: Insta: or Twitter: Tik Tok:

Top 5 Favorite Hamilton Moments
Two women of color talking about Hamilton, a show staring several women of color. Iconic truly. I had my first ever guest on Celibate and the Suburbs this week, my best friend and college roommate, Monique Da Silva, to talk about our top five favorite moments in Hamilton. A first-generation Brazilian girl and a half black girl talking about a show with almost exclusively BIPOC? Who else should you listen to! We talked about why representation in shows like this is important, and how important hair and makeup is to BIPOC, and just our all around favorite moments.
