Steph & Ayesha Curry's Baecation In Iceland Was What Dreams Are Made Of

If you and your boo are thinking of booking a trip, here are a few places you should check out while you're there.

Celebrity News

Between your increasingly thriving career, familial obligations, and making time for self-care, romance may be the last thing on mind. While you've been focused on living your best life, it's possible that you've been putting bae on the back burner, but according to Steph and Ayesha Curry, your partner should be the most important thing on your to-do list, and their recent trip to Iceland was proof of this fact.

The Currys constantly have their schedules jam-packed with everything from hosting PGA golf tournaments to raising three children, but somehow despite the chaos of both their personal and professional lives, these two always seem to make time for one another. The couple, who spent their weekend in the land of volcanoes, geysers, and lava fields, celebrated 8 years of marriage in July and are a vision of melanin matrimony that is frame-worthy.

While a 7-hour flight to Viking country may not be on your bucket list, this celebrity couple just proved that one of the coolest things you can do is have a hot date on a glacier. Steph and Ayesha spent their baecation at The Retreat Blue Lagoon at Iceland, a luxury resort with floor-to-ceiling windows and lagoon views that starts at $1,300 a night; but there are also Volcano Huts and Cottages available that you can snag at a bargain for an alternatively dope experience.

Although booking a place to stay is a great place to start, Iceland has a lot more to offer than a quaint love nest when it comes to romance. If you and your boo are thinking of booking a trip, here are a few places you should check out while you're there:

Blue Lagoon

Known as one of the Top 25 wonders of the world, Iceland's man-made geothermic spa has been graced by the likes of Beyonce, Jay-Z, Ayesha and Steph Curry, and now, you and your boo! The lagoon's waters stay around 102 degrees Fahrenheit and is open year-round, but due to its popularity, it's recommended that you book well before your trip.

Thrihnukagigur

Climbing into a dormant volcanic crater may not be the ideal date night, but judging from Steph and Ayesha's photos, it sure makes for a fun one. One of the country's top attractions and the only volcano in the world that you can actually go inside, visitors can delve down up to 400 feet down into the volcano's magma chamber for a one of a kind experience.

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 “Pressurelicious” artist’s fans were in for a surprise a few days ago after Megan posted a photo of herself lying on the floor with her legs up and wrapped around Pardi’s waist. Pardi appeared to be focused on playing his video game while Meg’s derriere was tooted in the air but he managed to wrap his arms around it as he held the controller.

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.
