It was the moment we as Insecure fans have been waiting for…the return of Season 3! We were excited AF and were not disappointed! Whether you are Team Issa, Team Molly, Team Daaaaaang Daniel, or Team No Lawrence the premiere has us all wanting more!
I have loved and supported Issa Rae since her groundbreaking Youtube series Awkward Black Girl. HBO’s Insecure has become a cultural phenomenon and I couldn’t be happier for Issa’s success. She is a brilliant content creator and I am so glad the world is finally taking notice. It was only right that I threw an Insecure Watch Party in my city! All this golden content she’s producing, I knew there were other fans like me who would want to come together.
Many thanks to The South Chicken & Waffles for hosting us! The bartenders even made a thematic menu of food and drinks for the party like my fave the ‘black girl magic.’ DJ Fat had the ultimate Insecure playlist to set the scene before the premiere. (click through images for more deets.)
You Hungry? The Chicken and Waffles was definitely the most popular dish of the night. Half buttermilk/half red velvet waffle…Mmm good!
I had to get one of the signature drinks of the night ‘Black Girl Magic’
Signature Cocktail ‘Black Girl Magic’
Hella grassroots marketing went into getting the word out! We decided to repurpose these flyers as centerpieces for the tables.

I was surprised at how many men came out for the night to support.
I had to throw in a couple of interactive games to engage fans. Team No Lawrence won overwhelmingly by the end of the night
Early birders and select VIP got a surprise gift…Issa’s Box of Faves. Each item was significant to InsecureHBO :

•Treat Yourself-From manicures, pedicures, facials to therapy, self care is a common theme throughout the show
•🍾Lituation-Issa is known to turn up and a little brown/clear liquor does the trick
•Kleenex-Issa 👁💦🍆 Well this infamous scene toward the end of season 2 with Issa and Daniel had Twitterverse a buzz with the great debate. 😩😂

So why is it we continue to water the dead “flowers” in our lives? I was scrolling through my feed on Twitter and @kelebom tweet read “Yooo, stop texting first and see how many dead flowers you’ve been watering.” This tweet resonated with me and I remixed it a bit as a caption on one of my Instagram post. But seriously, if you stopped texting/calling first would you realize how many dead flowers you have been watering? Or better yet, how many fake flowers have you been watering?
Last weekend I stayed at a beautiful lake house in hill country of Austin. I snapped this photo of these gorgeous flowers because I looooove white flowers. They are so classic, subtle and beautiful….BUT these jokers are FAKE as Steve Harvey’s toupee in the 90’s. Just like you wouldn’t water these, don’t hydrate dead, fake friendships and situationships that doesn’t need saving. Even if the external is beautiful, YOU DESERVE BETTER. Cut it off girl, let it go…hair isn’t the only dead ends that need to be cut some times.
