February Favorites: Avocado Proposals & Amy Schumer’s Wedding


The Month of Love was quite lovely, and I’m so sad it ended so quickly. Ugh, why does February have to be so short?!

Pop culture brought us a few really insane/cute romantic news stories and some eargasmic tunes (my ears are still ringing well into March 2018, guys).

Let’s take a look at my favorites for February 2018:

Favorite News Articles

1. People are proposing out of avocados. They’re calling them avoboxes. (WHY.)

2. The Obamas revealed their portraits. Simply stunning. Also, is anyone else seeing Sasha when they look at Michelle’s?

3. That awks moment when Bekah from The Bachelor supposedly went missing. My parents would probably file a missing person’s report too if I didn’t answer their calls and texts within 24 hours, tbh.

Favorite Music

1. “Midnight Summer Jam” by Justin Timberlake. Basically the “Let the Groove Get In” equivalent on this new album. I cannot get enough!

Fan Art Fridays: Justin Timberlake

justin timberlake fan art

Justin Timberlake has made our Friday with a new song and music video, “Filthy.” He also shared with us the tracklist for his upcoming album Man of the Woods.

I mean, it’s a pretty intense pop single. The video takes place at conference in Asia during the year 2028. One of the lyrics goes, “Put your filthy hands all over me.”

Excuse me, mister?

Anyway, in celebration of “Filthy”, I’ve decided to feature this amazing fan art of Justin Timberlake I found on Pixels by Chrisann Ellis. It features the singer sporting his signature smolder on a greeting card!

Check out “Filthy” below.

2014 People’s Choice Awards

2014-01-09_09-53-46-1

Last night, TV stars, movie stars and artists gathered at the Nokia Theatre to celebrate the best in entertainment, all decided on by the people, of course.

Hosts for the evening were Kat Dennings and Beth Behrs from Two Broke Girls. They both looked fabulous and did an amazing job.

The intro was set at the Williamsburg Diner from Two Broke Girls where some of the nominees were ordering food from Max and Caroline or paying their bill. Kaley Cuoco from The Big Bang Theory didn’t have enough money to tip Max and Caroline, so she gives them an invitation to host the People’s Choice Awards instead.

Since they are broke, they have no idea how the heck they are going to get to the show. Walter White (Bryan Cranston) from Breaking Bad takes the girls on a wild ride to Nokia Theatre, and they end up on the red carpet entrance to the show.

At the show, Beth complains about the fact that people think that she is actually a waitress in real life. From the audience, Brad Paisley then asks her for a “burger and flies,” getting tongue tied, and Heidi Klum does the same. Kat reminds Beth that they are not taking orders because aren’t actually waitresses and they need to host the show. Beth is entranced by Brad Paisley and insists that she needs to get him his order. Out come tons of waitresses dressed in uniforms just like Max and Caroline from Two Broke Girls. “Burgers and fries for everyone!” shouted Kat.

Here are some of the highlights of the evening:

1. When Justin Timberlake is announced “Favorite Pop Artist,” Ellen Degeneres begins to make her way onto the stage. She’s too much!

2. When Malin Åkerman and Shemar Moore played that game. “Bert and Ernie,” Malin began. Shemar took it all the way to “Ebony and Ivory.” Then he continued, “This is not a game. I don’t see any rings on those fingers. I’m part Canadian, you’re Canadian…” Umm…

3. Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder joke about their relationship in their acceptance speech for “Best Chemistry.” Totally not awkward. I really wish  they were still dating! Ian even kissed her on the cheek at the end of the acceptance speech. They’re adorbs.

4. When Adam Sandler read the fake fan letter from Drew Barrymore. Too funny!

5. That awkward moment when Zac Efron realized he was having an awkward moment. Awks.

6. When Beth sang “The Hills Are Alive,” “Wrecking Ball,” “Before He Cheats,” and “Baby Got Back.” She even twerked a bit during the last number. Girl got moves!

7. When Malin Åkerman and Shemar Moore played that game. “Bert and Ernie,” Malin began. Shemar took it all the way to “Ebony and Ivory.” Then he continued, “This is not a game. I don’t see any rings on those fingers. I’m part Canadian, you’re Canadian…” Umm…

8. Robert Downey Jr.’s acceptance speech. He stole the spotlight.

Best Performance:

OneRepublic, “Counting Stars”

I loved the electronic vibe in the first part of the song!

Summer 2013 Playlist

summer playlist

It’s officially summer! Here comes the vacations, the parties and all the fun! But those summer activities wouldn’t be complete without a summer playlist now, would they?

Here are 14 fun, festive and relaxing summer songs to add to your summer playlist.

1. Summer’s Not Hot, Selena Gomez and the Scene: What else screams summer better than Selena Gomez literally screaming “It’s summer!” at the beginning of this track? The song is cute and fun, as she sings about the summer not being hot without her guy. Wink, wink.

2. So Many Details, Toro y Moi: This song is part of the chillwave genre, so it has a relaxing beat. The scenery in the video will make you want to take a relaxing vacation in The Carolinas.

3. Let the Groove Get In, Justin Timberlake: For those of you who know how to dance Samba, I envy you, because this song makes me want to dance the Samba. But I can’t do it properly because I don’t know how to. This song is perfect for an outdoor summer party with its festive beat.

4. Ride, Lana Del Rey: I’m not a big Lana fan but I heard this song for the first time during the Pretty Little Liars season 3 finale. It’s one of those songs you would listen to in your convertible with the top down letting the summer breeze take all your troubles away.

5. Move, CSS: Brazilian band CSS, acronym for Cansei de Ser Sexy (I’m Tired of Being Sexy), brings you a cool dance song that will get you moving at this summer’s backyard parties!

6. Trying to Be Cool, Phoenix: Because that’s all we’re trying to be this summer. Pop this French band’s tune on as you try to cool off in the air conditioning.

7. Fifteen (Oxford Remix), Goldroom ft. Chela: I love this song so much that it’s my alarm sound every morning. Chela sings in the first line “It’s been a long time, wondering why the summer smells like sin and wonder.” Indeed it does. And maybe we’ll never know why.

8. Hey Now, Candy Dulfer: What’s summer without a little bit of jazz? This song has the perfect balance of saxophone to make you wanna get groovy.

9. En la Obscuridad, Belinda: In English, the title would be “In the Darkness.” This song is so cute and the video is even cuter. We all know that one mysterious stranger we meet at a late night summer party that we want more from. This song will remind you of him.

10. I Need Your Love, Calvin Harris ft. Ellie Goulding: This mellow electronic song coupled with Ellie Goulding’s fresh voice is the perfect dose of exactly what we need this summer.

11. She Wants to Go, Something like Kites ft. Patrick: Who doesn’t want to go this summer? Here’s another great party song for your party playlist. The awesome guitar chords in this song will make you definitely want to party it up!

12. Como Te Vas, Trails and Ways: This song is from another Brazilian band. The title in English would be “How’s it Going.” The song is sung in Spanish instead of Portuguese. It has a very relaxing summer vibe to it with its smooth guitar.

13. Scratch, BG5: I heard this song for the first time when they were featured on Keeping Up With the Kardashians because Kris Jenner manages the group. The beat of this song is a lot of fun, just the way summer should be.

14. Don’t Stop the Party, Pitbull: Because none of us want this party called summer to end, so enjoy it with Mr. Worldwide’s festive song!

Have a fun and safe summer 2013 everyone!!
