December Favorites: Dylan Sprouse’s All-Wise Meadery & Katherine Kaling

I can’t say 2017 ended too badly. Really, it could have been worse.

We had a couple of celebrity births during December 2017 and some amazing royal photo shoots to round out the year. I can’t complain.

Here are my favorites in pop culture and entertainment for the month of December:

Favorite News Articles

1. Dylan Sprouse is opening a bar in Brooklyn. Woo! Rounding up my friends for a girls night!

2. Mindy Kaling gave birth to her daughter Katherine! I cannot wait to see pics (and possibly find out who the father is).

3. TIME Magazine’s 2017 Person of the Year: The Silence Breakers. I love the symbolism in this cover with the woman who wanted to remain anonymous. Even before everyone found out why it was just her arm in the photo I knew she represented the ones who still can’t speak out.

4. Prince George and Princess Charlotte are the cutest little royals on earth. I just wanna pinch their little cheeks!

5. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s engagement portraits. I am so hype because they’re getting married on the day before my birthday! BEST BIRTHDAY GIFT EVER!

6. The Library of Congress is actually archiving all tweets from 2010 onward. This must be hella daunting.

Favorite Music

1. “Opera” by BLOWSOM. Can he release a full length album and come to NYC in 2018? Thanks.

Wardrobe Wednesdays: Meghan Trainor on ‘Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon’

On Thursday, Meghan Trainor took the stage to perform her new song “Me Too” on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. As one of my favorite songs off her new album Thank You, I was super hype to watch the performance.

She got all the way to the end of the song before slipping with her chunky metallic silver platform heels and falling on her back, dragging the mic with her. #IntolerableHeelCruelty.

Regardless, she looked amazing in a green sequined bodycon dress. I just love the fact that she’s not afraid to show off those curves!

Below are two similar dresses to the one Meghan wore for her performance. If you’re willing to try the chunky heels, I advise you not spin around in them and attempt to hold onto a free-standing structure for balance. Break them in first!

Dress:

1. Rickety Rack, $120.00

2. Nordstrom, $198.00

Heels:

3. Net-A-Porter, $690.00

4.  MatchesFashion.com, $737.00

April Favorites: 7 Year Nap, Vintage NYC & Pizza Kiss Cam

april faves

April was brutal.

I can’t decide what part of April 2016 was worse: the fact that the whole “celebrities die in threes” turned into fours (Prince, Doris Roberts, Chyna, Victoria Wood), the fact that all the shows I’ve been watching are going on hiatus, or the sad reality that Mother Nature is denying NYC proper spring weather.

Anyway, I managed to get excited about a few albums coming out in May, many of which are being teased with singles that were released in April. That and a few YouTube videos kept me going.

Here are my favorites in pop culture for the month of April 2016:

Favorite News Articles

1. This kid Marcus Lepage took a 7 year long nap. And documented it on Twitter.

2. Alexey Zakharov created a vintage NYC. I think it’s so cool that he was able to do this using photographs!

3. Pizza kisses. Because who needs another human for the kiss cam when you have pizza?

4. Ted Cruz’s twin. I could not deal when I saw the comment that said “Ted Cruz in drag on Maury.”

Favorite Music

1. “Coast to Coast” by Satin Jackets. Hands down, this song is part of one of the best albums I’ve heard this year so far!

2. “Better” by Meghan Trainor. So excited to hear Thank You in May.

3. “Let Me Love You” by Ariana Grande feat. Lil Wayne. Girl, you def should not be trippin’ because they sure “will be coming “from the right and the left, left left.”

4. “Guillotine” by Jon Bellion feat. Travis Mendes. Only Jon Bellion can make something as gruesome as a song about getting decapitated sound cheerful.

Favorite Celeb Instagrams

1. Taylor Swift is tearing it up in this iTunes commercial. And falling off treadmills.

2. Elvy Yost caught Jay Hayden dancing on the set of ABC’s The Catch. He’s got the moves but not the lyrics.

3. Ariana Grande’s new album track preview. Cannot. Wait.

Favorite TV Episodes

1. Limitless, “The Finale Part 2.” The only good thing that came out of all this is that Piper is safe.

2. The Catch, “The Princess and the I.P.” Let’s just hope Alice’s decision to save Ben doesn’t end up hurting her in the end.

3. Scandal, “Buckle Up.” That Mellie and Fitz moment made this one of my favorite episodes to date.

Favorite Youtube Videos

1. James Corden, Melissa McCarthy and Kristen Shaal make fools of themselves with mouthguards. I lost it with the bubbles bit.

2. Alonzo Lerone addresses Uma Kompton. This woman is literally a joke. “Sewerside”? Stahp.

3. Cats on leashes. Poor cat was being dragged down the sidewalk.

March Favorites: Adele’s Beard, “Watch Me Do” & ‘The Catch’ Premiere

march faves

So March didn’t really go out like a lamb for me. I’d say it was more like a really sassy alpaca.

March was filled with a lot of great music, and sadly, a lot of season finales. I’m really looking forward to the summer when all my shows come back!

Here are my favorites in the world of pop culture for the month of March:

Favorite News Articles

1. Adele’s beard. The fact that she named it is killing me.

2. The royal family went skiing. The family portrait is super adorbs!

3. The Rock holds on to Zac Efron for dear life while on a motorcycle. “Hold me close my tiny dancer…”

Favorite Music

1. “Watch Me Do” by Meghan Trainor. Sassy. James Brown would be so proud.

2. “Do It, Try It” by M83. After hearing this song, I realized the Junk would probably end up being a very weird album, but it isn’t really too weird…

3. “All Out in the Open” by Mesita. It’s a little bit of Ed Sheeran mixed with indie and I love it!

4. “Where Would I Be” by Gwen Stefani. The hook in this song is everything.

Favorite Celeb Instagrams

1. Taylor Swift’s mom’s dog wants some food. It’s already been taken, buddy.

2. Selena Gomez in rollers. Still trying to figure out how her hair will look once those rollers get taken out.

3. Henry Cavill went unnoticed in Times Square. I would have been beyond pissed if I’d walked by and then found out later in the day that it was him!

Favorite TV Episodes

1. The Catch, “The Pilot.” That painting (“Alone Together” by Maria Kreyn) is literally their relationship.

2. Pretty Little Liars, “Hush…Hush, Sweet Liars.” So many things happened between the couples in this episode that I don’t even know how to begin to feel.

3. Limitless, “Bezgranichnyy.” I’m not sure if I like Brian with Lucy Church or Piper Baird more.

4. Bates Motel, “‘Til Death Do You Part.” I actually really think Norma and Alex are great for each other.

Favorite Youtube Videos

1. Mike Falzone standup. I’m totally seeing him when he comes to Astoria in May! Let’s see if the audience is anything like this one LOL.

2. James Corden was L.A.’s mayor for a day. Of course he would want to cut all the ribbons.

3. Tanya Burr talks in her sleep. Husband Jim Chapman tells all.

Enjoy all the April rain.
