Wardrobe Wednesdays: Cara Delevingne at the 2015 MTV VMAs

It’s only right that the stars wear stars…

The MTV VMA red carpet saw so many great outfits, Cara Delevingne’s being no exception. Just look at how she’s working this beaded star pattern mini-dress!

What I like most about this dress is the fact that it looks appropriate for an upscale award show after party without trying too hard. I bet the disco ball and the lights at the VMA after party lit Cara Delevingne up in this dress like no tomorrow.

Maria Nichol’s Gift Box from Across the Pond

gift box

Back in 2013 when I first started my blog, I met British fashion and entertainment blogger Maria Nichol. Since then, we’ve become buddies, and even though I never met her in person, I think she’s super cool!

We decided to do a gift swap this year. I sent my box to her in October for her birthday, and she sent mine in time for Christmas!

She took the time to write a little note to put in the box before sending:

The box came with some awesome goodies, including Cadbury milk chocolate, temporary tattoos, eyeshadow, cupcake mittens, fake nails and so much more!

Here are my three favorite things from Maria’s box:

This Week in Music: Cher Lloyd’s “I Wish” Music Video ft. T.I.

cher i wish

British singer Cher Lloyd premiered the music video for her song “I Wish” ft. T.I. today, September 24th.

This song is definitely an upgrade from her 2012 hit “Want U Back.” After listening to that song on the radio too many times, her grunting gets a bit irritating.

The critics say that Cher Lloyd’s “I Wish” is the female version of the 1995 Skee-Lo song of the same name.

I love it.

The song has a very jazzy, upbeat feel with its trumpet melody and fast bass drum tempo. I love how the trumpets are distorted for the outro, as Cher laughs.

Cher Lloyd and T.I.

Cher Lloyd and T.I.

Cher Lloyd looks gorgeous in the music video. She plays a waitress at a lounge bar who lusts after T.I., a player who arrives with a group of women falling all over him.

In the song, Cher wishes to be like these girls so that T.I. would notice her. She sings:

I wish I was tall, I wish I was fast
Wish I could shop with a bag full of cash’
Cause If I want you, I gotta have that
(Come, come kiss me boy)
I wish I had style, I wish I had flash
I wish I woke up with a butt and a rack’
Cause If I want you, I gotta have that
(Come, come kiss me boy)

And no, Cher did not kiss T.I. in this music video.

I love the parts where Cher tries to give herself bigger boobs. The first occurs in the kitchen, where she places two golden peppers over her chest.

The second time, she’s in the ladies room trying to stuff toilet paper in her bra.

Classy.

After her shift is over, Cher dons a gold glitter jacket and heels. She walks out of the lounge looking sexier than ever, and T.I.’s eyes follow her.

Of course all of his lady friends are jealous and thoroughly confused.

The dancers in the parking lot scenes were fun to watch. I do wish that Cher could have showed off some of her dance moves in this video.

My only complaint about this music video is the way the scenes skipped by so quickly. None of the scenes last more than 3-5 seconds. It was kind of jarring.

Overall, though, it was fun to watch.

Enjoy the music video!

Don’t forget to catch Cher Lloyd on MTV’s Nikki & Sara LIVE at 11:00 PM ET and “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” on NBC at 11:35 PM ET!

Fall 2013 Playlist

fall playlist

Summer is over, guys. As much as you want to hold on to your tank tops and surf boards, autumn is here. It’s time to bring out the rake for all those leaves.

Fall is characterized by rustling leaves and jack-o-lanterns, scarecrows and creepy mansions. Therefore, I present to you a fall playlist of 15 songs that will make you feel haunted.

1. Spotlight, Mutemath: Many of you might remember this song from the first Twilight movie when Bella notices everyone in the school parking lot is staring at her and Edward Cullen as they walk into the building. The melody created by the chorus of ‘ahs’ in this song will send chills up your spine. In a good way.

2. Meet My Friends, Gold Fields: This Aussie band will send you into a frenzy with the sinister guitar rifts featured in this song! The lyrics are very dark as well, as they sing, “I saw faces, I saw the fear.” Look away!

3. Entertainment, Phoenix: French band Phoenix uses some creepy sounding synth melodies for this track in order to entertain you. So, did they succeed?

4. I Belong to You, Muse: This song is also featured in a Twilight movie, New Moon to be exact. How comfortable are you with the notion of belonging to Muse?

5. Bones, MS MR: Pretty Little Liars fans might remember this song from the episode where the girls attend Detective Wilden’s funeral. Will you obey MS MR’s command to “Dig up her bones but leave the soul alone”?

6. Bittersweet World, Ashlee Simpson: Got some skeletons in your closet? Well maybe you should let them out so that they can dance to this song!

7. Not in Love, Crystal Castles ft. Olin and the Moon: The notoriously dark electronic band Crystal Castles teams up with Olin and the Moon for this anti-love track. The synth might actually relax you. Might.

8. One Life Stand, Hot Chip: The ever so clever Hot Chip creates a frightful track using a play on the concept of a “one night stand.” Now, the real question is, do you want to be Hot Chip’s one life stand?

9. Insomniatic, Aly and AJ (78Violet): Aly and AJ recorded and released this song before changing their name to 78Violet. I cannot be held responsible if this song keeps you up at night.

10. Howl, Florence and the Machine: The beautiful yet creepy violins in this song make this one of Florence’s masterpieces. So, be careful young, lovers.

11. Heavy Heart, Canon Blue: The discordant synth intro of this song is enough to make the hairs on the back of your neck stand on end. Enjoy!

12. Polish Girl, Neon Indian: I don’t know who she is but Neon Indian is taken by this Polish girl. How quickly can she take you?

13. Shoot the Water, Austra: Between the piano melody and the lyrics, I can’t decide which is creepier. I think the lyrics win, especially when she sings, “I want your blood, I want it in my hair.” Eww.

14. Bloody Mary, Lady Gaga: She won’t cry for you. She just won’t do it. Beware, the deep male ghost-like voices that sing “GAGA” in the bridge are quite alarming. And scary.

15. Are You Afraid?, Rooney: After all of this haunted stuff is said and done, are you afraid? Did I actually give you a scare? Rooney wants to know!

Have a happy and safe autumn season 2013!

Episode Review: ‘The Mindy Project’ Season 2 Premiere (2×1) “All My Problems Solved Forever…”

mindy project

I don’t know how I survived for so long without my weekly dose of Dr. Mindy Lahiri.

The season 2 premiere of FOX’s The Mindy Project was full of awkward and hilarious moments. Just the way I like it!

The episode begins with a proposal by none other than our favorite New York City pastor, Casey.

Of course, right before the proposal, Mindy begins to realize there are ants in the tree they’re sitting in.

“Not exactly the segway I was looking for…,” Casey says as he digs for the ring and Mindy picks at the ants.

After he pulls out the ring Mindy gasps, saying, “Are you kidding?! I need to Vine this!”

cindy

Mind you they’re sitting in a tree in the middle of nowhere in Haiti.

That’s Mindy for ya.

This episode’s pleasant surprise was special guest James Franco, or, as they would call him at the practice, Dr. Paul Leotard.

franco mindy

James Franco as OBGYN Dr. Paul Leotard

Besides taking over Mindy’s position as OBGYN while she was away in Haiti, he also added something else to his job description:

Sex Therapist.

Need I say more?

I shall.

Dr. Castellano and his ex-wife seek sex therapy from Dr. Leotard in this episode.

Let’s just say it ended in a public announcement of Danny Castellano’s porn addiction and a laptop broken in half.

Yeah.

Other episode highlights include:

1. Dr. Jeremy Reed’s weight gain. The British bloke kept stealing the peanut butter bars from Mindy’s care packages. Needless to say, it all went to his stomach.

2. Mindy’s hair. It’s still short. I don’t like it. I’m glad they’re postponing the wedding so that it has time to grow in a bit.

3. When Casey accidentally pees on Mindy’s wedding dress. You’ll just have to see what happens after that yourself.

4. When Casey says to Mindy after she’s already halfway down the aisle, “I don’t want to marry you anymore.” Heart attacks. Heart attacks everywhere.

5. When Dr. Leotard (James Franco) sneaks up on Mindy. How does he tread so lightly? “I’m part Cherokee,” he says. Okay, then.

6. When Mindy decides not to go back to Haiti with Casey, and both Mindy and Dr. Leotard ask each other “Well, where you gonna work?”

I cannot wait to see what shenanigans Mindy will get herself into for next week’s episode!
