#LemonPepperKickback Playlist

The Palmetto Peaches are basically Insecure’s Issa and Molly in real life, so not getting invited to the #LemonPepperKickback was very disappointing. The guest list included: Janelle Monae, Tessa Thompson, Donald Glover, Lil ‘ Rel, Luke James, Brian Tyree Henry, Mack Wilds, Samuel L. Jackson–pretty much everyone but us. What’s a kickback? A lituation with good friends where dance battles, card games and photo shoots will go down. There was a video of Issa getting her life to Project Chick, which made us think about the #throwback songs we’d want at our #lemonpepperkickback.

Friday Faves: Fall is Here

We’re starting to officially make the transition from summer to fall. So we’ve gathered up some of things (and people) we’re adding to our faves list as with the season change.

Friday Faves: Fall is Here

Friday Faves: Fall is Here -- The Palmetto Peaches - palmsinatl.com

Faves Sweet Treat

Ace: Apple Pie Vodka from Voodoo Tiki Bar (aka my job). All you need is ice cubes and a little whipped cream–your taste buds will thank me later. I can’t wait until the weather gets a few degrees colder, so I can add a little heat to that vodka, and sip on it.

Donni: Well now I want that apple pie vodka Ace is talking about. I’m going basic:  Pumpkin Spice Cupcakes. 

Fave Vlogger/Blogger

Ace: I haven’t discovered any new faves just yet, but I’m still riding with Sheriden Chanel and Kiah McBride from xoNecole.com. Donni and I met them at Melanin and Mimosas a few years ago, and now they’re doing big things with another one of my favorites: Necole Kane.

Donni:  I recently stumbled on DaNi B. Jade’s YouTube channel and love her DIY tutorials. Also, I’m loving Chelsea Williams, from That’s Chelsea. She’s a 4c naturalista (like me) that blogs about all things health and wellness including green beauty and her plant-based lifestyle.

Favorite TV Moment

Donni: Blackish isn’t just a TV show. It’s a socially conscious experience. I love how the show tackles “uncomfortable” topics that people would prefer not to talk about. It’s not that they tackle it, but they still get you to laugh while doing so. Wednesday’s premiere episode: Juneteenth –  celebrated on June 19, which marks the day in 1865 that the last slaves were freed in the United States – provided a powerful history lesson on an overlooked holiday.

Ace: I know there’s a lot new fall TV shows out, but I just finished Freeform’s The Bold Type and it stole my heart. The show follows 3 best friends, in NYC, working for a women-based magazine. I like to think that Kat (a fierce social media director with slight emotional issues) is what I would’ve been like if I took on a big city after college. I was slightly embarrassed while crying at the end of the first episode. The magazine’s HBIC gave a speech about feminism, sisterhood and taking chances–and it hit me straight in the feels.

Music Midtown 2017 (Playlist)

We’re trying to live our best musical lives this summer by checking off another musical festival.  Being in Gulf Shores for Hangout Festival was so much fun and the music was amazing. Hopefully, Music Midtown 2017  won’t be evacuated or rained out like last year. If you’re close to Atlanta, it’s not too late to get a ticket. However, prices are increasing on September 2nd.

Who We’re Excited to See

Ace

I’m excited to see Bruno Mars, because a small part of me hopes Beyonce will surprise–and they can perform the Super Bowl Halftime show again. I’ve never seen a boring Bruno show, so I’m pumped to witness the funk and soul in person. My ratchet heart is also really excited to see Future in his hometown. Future Radio is my go-to playlist to listen to while getting ready for work. Also, since I didn’t get a chance to see Mumford and Sons at Hangout–they’re on my list too.

Donni

Bruno Mars. The BRUNO MARS. Bruno. I’ve seen almost all of my favorite artists live with the exception of Justin Timberlake, Lauryn Hill, OutKast (I’ve seen them separately, but it doesn’t count) and Bruno Mars. Bruno is finally getting crossed off the list. I may try to jump on stage and touch his hair — or have his baby. I can’t make any promises. I’m actually really excited about the entire lineup. I’m excited AF to scream all the lyrics to What’s My Age Again and All The Small Things. I think the Future, Wiz, and Big Sean sets are going to get crazy. Judah and The Lion remind me of a band that my friends used to have and I hear they put on a great show.

Childhood Summer Memories

Although it isn’t officially summer, we’re going to do a little flashback Friday and share some of our childhood summer memories.

Childhood Summer Memories - The Palmetto Peaches - palmsinatl.com

Donni

Down down baby, down by the roller coaster
Sweet sweet baby, I’ll never let you go

It’s been about six years since I spent a full summer in Charleston. But the heat, humidity and afternoon thunderstorms are everything but forgettable. As a child I spent many of my summer days at my grandmother’s house on James Island, less than five miles away from Folly Beach. One of my aunts lived there with her two children and served as my grandmother’s caretaker.

Shimmy shimmy cocoa pops,
Shimmy shimmy pow!

Shimmy shimmy pow!

My parents worked and so I would be dropped off there along with another cousin. So the four of us – two boys and two girls — spent just about every summer together. We didn’t go to the beach. We spent the days outside tying one end of a rope to a tree, and jumping rope with the other end in my cousin’s hand or playing handclapping games. The boys off doing their own thing away from the house or hold up inside playing Nintendo. Sometimes they’d let us play, mainly the bonus rounds in Super Mario and we’d all take turns blowing into the cartridges when the games messed up.  Nintendo later turned into Super Nintendo, which turned PlayStation.

Gramma gramma, sick in bed,
Called the doctor and the doctor said

When we were older My cousin and I would sneak into her brother’s room to play Tekken and Mortal Kombat – being careful to place his controllers back where we found them as not to get caught. That’s also where we would record songs of the radio on cassette tapes, being careful not to get the commercials at the beginning of the song.

Let’s get the rhythm of the head – ding dong
Let’s get the rhythm of the head – ding dong
Let’s get the rhythm of the hands – clap, clap
Let’s get the rhythm of the hands – clap, clap

My aunt gave us summer homework — I remember pages and pages of math problems — that we’d have to complete before going outside. And once you were outside you had to stay outside because 1) you couldn’t let the cool air out and 2) we smelled like “outdoors”.

Let’s get the rhythm of the feet – stomp, stomp
Let’s get the rhythm of the feet – stomp, stomp

At some point Monopoly became the group game. We were vicious and eager to bankrupt everyone. My favorite were the yellow properties. We only stopped for $5 Hot N Ready’s from Little Caesars and freeze pops.

Let’s get the rhythm of the – hot dog
Let’s get the rhythm of the – hot dog!

When the summer storms rolled in, my grandmother would make us sit in silence – in the dark. TVs were immediately turned off. Get too loud and you’d get popped with a switch.

Put it all together and what do you get?
Ding dong, clap clap, stomp stomp, hot dog!
Put it all backward and what do you get?
Hot dog, stomp stomp, clap clap, ding dong!

 

Ace

Walking to the corner store for chilly bears.

If you’re unfamiliar with the term, a chilly bear is basically frozen Kool-Aid. The most amazing frozen Kool-Aid you’ll ever taste. One of the only things better than enjoying a chilly bear after walking in the heat, is searching under the couch for enough change to buy one. They were 25 cents.

Swimming lessons at the community center.

My mom and aunts thought it would be a good idea for all of us to take swimming lessons together–all 15 of us. I still know how to swim, so maybe it wasn’t such a bad idea. (Except for that one time we caused a mini riot when my cousin got in a fight.)Childhood Summer Memories -- The Palmetto Peaches

Playing Red Rover in the grass while visiting our “country” cousins.

Red Rover, Red Rover send Cec on over! When I was a little girl, visiting family in Florence, SC was my Disney World. We’d play a ton of games outside before the streetlights came on, but Red Rover was always the funniest.
