So I haven’t posted a review / giveaway in a longtime. I would love to offer a giveaway to my readers for the hilarious movie “Baggage Claim,” which was released Feb. 4th on Blu-ray and DVD.” The movie stars Paula Patton and Boris Kodjoe (who plays her fiance). The movie is about relationships, love and heartache. I’m sure we can all relate, right? Especially the 30 + crowd.
Synopsis of “Baggage Claim”
Paula Patton leads a hilarious cast in this first-class comedy that’ll keep you laughing and make your heart soar! Flight attendant Montana Moore (Patton) is smart, sexy and sick of being single. She’s determined to get engaged before her younger sister’s wedding, leaving just 30 days to make her connection. Fortunately, her co-worker crew has cooked up a high-flying scheme for Montana to “accidentally” bump into all her ex-boyfriends, leading to hilarious encounters as she attempts to land the perfect guy!
This is by far a comedy for both sexes. I don’t think that I’ve laughed so much before. Prior to watching the movie, I didn’t really know what to expect because it’s not always easy to make me laugh. When I tell you that this movie left me in tears… I was laughing so hard that I had to call up my friends and tell them to watch. I don’t want to spoil the movie by giving too much away, but I will say that I enjoyed all of the characters in the movie. I especially enjoyed actor / comedian Affion Crockett, he plays a TSA agent. There’s an invaluable lesson in the movie that, the grass isn’t always greener on the other side.

Relationship expert LaDawn Black offers her advice and how to capture his / her attention.
Notice a Small or Non-flashy Piece of Jewelry
One quick way to impress someone new is to pick an item in their clothing or jewelry that is not screaming for attention. A quirky pair of cuff links, a simple necklace, any antique looking pieces or a well-traveled work bag are all possible great story starters. People choose these small items often more for sentimental reasons and not flash. These items are more about who they are and less about what they have. Noticing the small things shows that you are taking the person in and really interested in getting to know them.
Least Obvious Beauty Trait
This one is easy! We all have aspects of our looks that are obvious pulls: height, a great head of hair, a curvy shape, a beautiful smile. Instead of complimenting the obvious take a few minutes and try to find something hot about your date that is not what they lead with. She has a beautiful smile? Don’t tell her that first. Maybe you compliment her on the way her eyes light up when she laughs. He is incredibly tall and fit. Don’t give him what every woman gives him. Instead, compliment him on his beautiful skin that obviously comes from him living a healthy lifestyle. The trick here is to be genuine and make sure your compliment makes sense and is linked in an unexpected way to a strength that your date already knows he/she has.
Point Out Grace, Class, Manners & Chivalry
Who doesn’t want to feel that they are extremely classy or chivalrous? As much as we talk about the sexes being equal, there is still a strong draw to those that are able to be incredibly modern and still be on their old school manner game. Point out little fine points that will make your date feel like they are the ultimate lady or gentlemen. Good manners still go a long way.
