What a Failed Comedy Sketch Show Documentary Taught Me About Life

Share this post:


(So about this photo…lol. I needed an image to include in this post and this was the first one that popped up in my media library when I typed “Danielle.”)

Since I cut my cable about six months ago, I’ve been watching A LOT of documentaries, binge-watching tons of old TV shows, comedy specials, and yes, if you follow me on IG or have had a conversation with me in person recently, a LOT of crime shows…lol. But the other night I watched Too Funny to Fail: The Life & Death of The Dana Carvey Show on Hulu. I’m not sure what made me watch because I TOTALLY do not remember this show AT ALL. But I guess since I was coming of age when Dana Carvey was on SNL (many of his sketches are the ones I remember staying up late to watch when I was a kid), it seemed familiar to me so I gave it a whirl. Glad I did.

But with TruBlend Matte Made they did a first-ever for the brand and launched 40 shades!

I Went to The Momference and Got My Whole Entire Life

Share this post:

This weekend I attended The Momference in DC and got my entire life. The conference that was centered around Black millennial moms is the brainchild of Simona Noce and Nikki Osei-Barrett, two DMV – based publicists, HBCU grads and boy moms who aspire to inspire, serve and highlight all things #BlackMomMagic. And clearly you didn’t need to be a mom to go as I was there.
