10 TikToks That Will Have You Making Better Money Moves

We can all relate to these hilarious and useful takes on financial fitness.

Finance

Listen, I was slow to board the TikTok train, but I eventually had to hop on. I mean, you can't help but get sucked into watching the ridiculous dances and hilarious skits, whether you have an account or you see them on your Instagram feed. I especially love the ones that are super-relatable, include useful hacks or how-tos, and cover issues we all deal with—particularly those related to money.

These top 10 Tiktok stars are Black women who are great at teaching all of us how to get, keep, and increase our coins. Ain't nothing funny about being broke, but their videos will either help you forget about that rent laughing at your bank account balance or give you some tips you can actually use to defeat your money problems for good. (And hey, sis, if you really love TikToks and want to see more of these, share and comment below. We might just make this a recurring feature.)

The month begins with Mercury officially moving out of retrograde and going direct in Virgo. Mercury this month is cleaning house and sprucing things up after the somewhat tyrant energy it’s brought over the past few weeks. Now that Mercury is direct, there is less interruption when it comes to daily flow and plans, and this is a good month to start setting things into motion.

The Myth Of The Sex Drive & How Libido Changes From Your 20s, 30s, 40s & 50s

No one prepared me for how horny I would be in my late 30s. All the elders in my life prepared me for random chin hairs, weight gain, and menopause but no one said a mumbling word about my sex drive. Something happens the closer you get to forty. I went from wanting sex here and there to wanting it all the damn time. Is there a support group for this? I can’t be the only one who has the sex drive of the Energizer Bunny. Upon my research to figure out why I felt like a cat in heat, I discovered several theories surrounding women and our sex drives–including one that says the concept of having a sex drive is a myth altogether.

Da’Vinchi has appeared in many television series such as All American and Grown-ish but it was his role in BMF as Terry Flenory that helped propel his career forward.

Black woman with an afro and tube top laughing

If you have been on social media for any significant amount of time this year you may have come across women saying that they are in their “villain era.” For these women, being a villain means embracing the negativity and judgment from others that comes when you say “no” to people, and living your life unapologetically. For them, being a villain means letting the chips fall where they may when you no longer allow other people’s ideas about you to restrict you from living the life that you want and deserve.
