Ya'll ready? OK, perfect, here's what you'll need:

Grab your best exfoliating rag, your favorite soap, a foot file, some extra virgin olive oil, any kind of plastic bag (or even Saran wrap) in whatever size fits your feet (she used gallon-sized Ziploc bags), moisturizer (she recommends raw shea butter or some Whoop Ash), and a pair of socks. Dassit!

First, wash feet with exfoliating rag and soap:

First things first, we've got to loosen up that dead skin, so Smith washes her feet with the needed exfoliating rag.

"You're gonna take one of these little scrubby things, that I told you is like 99 cents, put some soap on it. Scrub it good because you want to loosen up dead skin on your feet."

Exfoliate your feet with a foot file:

Next up, is scraping those bad boys.

"And now we're going to do some real exfoliating with this [shows foot file]. Little scrub a dub on the feet, you know what I'm sayin'? Get that dead skin off."

Warm up olive oil:

Up next, head to the stove, grab a pot, and warm up your olive oil.

"Now we're about to warm some extra virgin olive oil. You only need a little bit, don't make it too hot though."

Apply moisturizer to feet:

Once you're done with warming up the oil, find your favorite moisturizer, and apply it all over the feet.

"You can either get some raw shea butter or I'm about to use some Whoop Ash. I love this stuff."

She continues:

"After you've loaded up your feet with Whoop Ash--get your heels, get your toes, get everything--you're gonna fill your bag with a little olive oil, but it's gotta be just warm. It can't be hot, or it's going to melt the plastic."

Place your feet in bags with olive oil:

"Put your foot in there, smoosh it around..."

Apply socks over the bags:

And finally, cover your feet by putting on the socks. Voila!

Go find something to do and let your feet sit for a couple hours:

What 14 People Say 'Great Sex' Means To Them

What is the difference between bad, average, and great sex? If I ask thirty people this question, I would get thirty different answers. As someone who's had their fair share of both good and not-so-good sex, I understand that there is no one size fits all answer to this question. "Great sex" can mean different things to different people. Case in point, I once had an amazing sexual experience with a guy that a mutual “friend” had a horrible experience with. Great sex is subjective AF! According to the mutual friend his sex was subpar at best. One person’s trash is another one’s treasure. Great sex boils down to what is good for you and your partner at the moment. No two people are the same so no two sexual experiences will be the same either.

Another day, another photo of Megan Thee Stallion that went viral. But this time she had a little help from her boyfriend Pardison “Pardi” Fontaine.

The Mamie 'Till' Movie Wants To Empower Us

Sitting in the theater getting ready to watch Nopefor the third time, I was excited, like a good film nerd, to see my friend's first-time reactions to the fun UFO horror-comedy. My heart sank immediately when a trailer for the film Till, which follows the life and legacy of Emmett Till's mother, Mamie, started playing first.

My knee-jerk reaction, of course, comes from years of watching film and TV that have exploited Black trauma onscreen and were created with little (if any) consideration for what could emotionally trigger the Black audience. The 1955 murder of Emmett Till is so heartbreaking and inherently violent; would this film make us live through that violence on screen?

Fortunately, no!

This week, before watching Gina Prince-Bythewood's incredible The Woman King, a featurette for Till played in place of a trailer and it soothed my fears.

"There will be no physical violence against Black people on screen," the film's award-winning director and co-writer Chinonye Chukwu says in the featurette. "I'm not interested in relishing in that kind of physical trauma. We're going to begin and end in a place of joy," she says.

Starring Danielle Deadwyler (whose heartfelt performance on HBO's Station Eleven stole the show) as Mamie, Till is a celebration of Mamie's tireless activism which sparked the civil rights movement that continues today and ultimately culminated in President Biden signing the Emmett Till Anti-Lynching Act into law just a few months ago in March 2022. "Mamie Till Mobley is a hero," says Alana Mayo, president of Orion Pictures, the production company behind the film. "I'm really, really committed to making movies not just by us, but for us," Mayo says in the featurette.

After a private screening of Till, this week, Trayvon Martin's mother, Sybrina Fulton, tweeted that the film was "#Powerful" and "a must see."

Mamie's story of courage in the face of unspeakable tragedy deserves to be told--especially as we continue the fight for civil rights today. Knowing that the Black filmmakers behind the film are centering Black joy and aiming for our empowerment through the film makes a world of difference.

TILLis in theaters October 14.
