Random Post

Under "Today's Hits" Radio on Pandora, I listen to Alessia Cara's "Here" followed by Lady Gaga belting out "Million Reasons." Then a commercial. Two commercials. Sure know how to kill a vibe. Next song? JT's "Can't Stop the Feeling." Great.

"I'm sorry if I seem uninterested. Or I'm not listening, or I'm indifferent;"
"If I had a highway I would run for the hills;"
"And under the lights when everything goes;"
"I got this feeling in my bones;"
"I ask myself what am I doing here?"

Can't hear myself think... Is this what being in your 20's is like? Doing random things for excitement, trying to feel complete. Try to fill a void but you don't even know what's missing.

Is it financial security? Is it more laughter? More sex? More love? More travel? Is this void truly from within? Or is it without?

Food for thought.

Before anything, my weekend recap: Spent my Saturday with my beautiful family, pigged out on homemade tacos (& had a couple glasses of wine) then celebrated a friend’s “Boy Bye/Early Birthday Party” in Nolita. So much, we got home at 4AM! And woke up yesterday at 1PMWHAT?! Lol yes! It’s been a while since I’ve done THAT! Nonetheless I’m glad I went and had a good time, catching up with old friends and meeting new ones.

Now yesterday was the 59th Annual Grammy Awards and if you read my blog (thank you) you know that I do not have cable and I could not miss it. Especially knowing that a very pregnant Beyonce and Mr. 24K Magic would be performing. My amazing boyfriend (I love you babe!) did everything he could to get CBS on our Firestick and I was able to watch it! Whoohoo!

Highlights of the night:

James Corden, hosting: I thought he was really good! It was a nice break from LL. Best moment though: the ad for a new show, “ Carpool Karaoke” on Apple Music.

Performances: BEYONCE. BEYONCE. BEYONCE! I mean what CAN’T this woman do?! She is amazing. Her performance was THE BEST. Everyone else killed it. This was a Grammy’s for the books. The best performances for me were Carrie Underwood and Keith Urban; Bee Gees tribute, performed by Andra Day, Little Big Town, Tori Kelly & Demi Lovato; Prince tribute: Bruno Mars and the Time; Bruno Mars, with his crew (wish they sang a few more songs).

Adele- Not sure what was happening with our crooner, who seemed to be very emotional last night. I mean, who can blame her: she paid [an emotional] tribute to the late, great George Michael (she hit restart on her performance a few minutes in) & won Album and Record of the Year, both whom she [emotionally] dedicated to Queen B, who was sitting front row (also very emotional).

And now, the moment you’ve all been waiting for: Red Carpet Fashion! (Crowd goes wild!) My picks for best dressed:

If you missed any of it, catch up on

What to Wear, When You Just Don't Care: Super Bowl LI

After the looooong week both at work and at home, I’m so thankful for this weekend! I got my gang together for a Paint & Sip yesterday (Thank you #paintinglounge! Separate post to follow) and ta-ta-ta-dummmm- I’ve officially cleaned out my closet, both figuratively and literally. Thank you, Baby Jesus! I realized I have a slight shoe obsession and it needs to stop…. *hehe*

And now, it is SUPER BOWLSUNDAY! There goes Saturday’s “workout”!
Which team am I rooting for you ask? Tough call- they’re all so cute! No, I’m not talking about the New England Patriots, who are playing to win their 5th SB ring, or the underdogs, the Atlanta Falcons, who have the best offense in the NFL. I’m referring to Team Ruff and Team Fluff of the Puppy Bowl, airing at 3PM on Animal Planet. Now that’s the best (& cutest) pre-game ever!

For those of us who root more for Teams Ruff and Tuff more than we do the actual NFL teams, here’s a cozy and neutral (yet chic) outfit for today’s big games, inspired by mama J-Lo.

People's Choice & SAG Awards 2017

Since when does time go by so fast?! Three award shows down, the Super Bowl is next Sunday and my next three weekends are booked! Is this part of adulting, time generally whizzing by yet we are very aware of the slowest minutes ever: waiting for the microwave + watching the clock on Fridays...

Crazy thing is: I watch WAY less TV now that I no longer have cable. (Need to update my readers on me. Stay Tuned.) My boyfriend and I currently use the Amazon #FireStick. It's life changing! Thank you #Amazon peeps. Nonetheless, I have WiFi and my laptop.

Here are my best dressed for People's Choice & SAG Awards.

Golden Globes 2017

(Clicks open blog webpage, blows cyber dust off) **Cough cough**

Happy new year luvs! Yes it's been a while but I have been slowly but surely, working on new, bigger and better content. So stay tuned!

Yesterday was the Golden Globes and I missed it (thanks to not having any cable at home). But thank God for The NY Times who, with their app, keep me in the know of everything from red carpet events to what's happening in countries like Palestine (spell check). Note: this is not ad. I am NOT getting paid for this. I really do use the app. On my own. No payment. Although I should... You're welcome, NYT.

"La La Land" won big, breaking records with a whopping seven wins, including best actor (Mr. Gosling) & best actress (Ms. Stone). Full list here.

But the real reason I watch awards show is the fashion show that is the red carpet. Here are my best dressed list of the night.

 I didn't even recognize her! Kristen Wig.

Drew Barrymore

Regina King

Anna Kendrick

Hailee Steinfeld

Caitriona Balfe

Kristen Bell
