The movie tells the adventure, challenges and experiences of four lifelong friends on a long-overdue weekend getaway trip to New Orleans for the annual Essence Music Festival. Their sisterhood is rekindled and wild sides are rediscovered, with nights of partying, hook-ups and bad decisions, as well as raw and vulnerable moments that strengthen their bond.

I loved the movie, it was fun, adventurous and emotional, like we even cried at some points while watching the movie. I was glad I went in company of this set of friends aka #AssociationOfExs. Don’t ask question oh. Some folks can relate. These babies are beautiful inside out.). Beyond the comedy and adventure in the movie, I picked 5 lessons from the movie which are;

  1. Quantity friendship is important. (Keep friends that you can be real with).
  2. You have to be sincere with yourself
  3. No one can bring you down without your permission.
  4. Truth liberates
  5. Don’t pretend around people that can help you.

Have you seen the movie, if yes, tell me your favorite scene. If no, abeg, go watch the movie, and please go in company of your friends.

And hey girls, lets state planning our formal girls trip. I love y’all.

Enjoy some of the memories we captured below……
