January Favorites: ‘Black-ish’ 6×13 & Tame Impala’s “Lost In Yesterday” Music Video

A part of me didn’t want to look back at January 2020 because it was SO HORRID, but now I realize that compiling my favorites for this post will allow me to remember some of the fun stuff that occurred throughout the month.

It can only get better from here, right?

January 2020 had no shortage of great music and music videos, which is getting me super excited for what the rest of the year has in store.

Without further rambles, enjoy my favorites in pop culture and entertainment for January 2020:

Favorite News Articles

1. The infamous champagne scene from The Bachelor season 24. I don’t even watch the show but when I heard about this scene I lost it.

2. The woman who answered the Popeye question incorrectly on Family Feud Canada got free food from Popeye’s. A savory non-victory.

3. Dunkaroos are coming back in summer 2020. Guess I’ll have to add a few more minutes to my exercise bike at the gym to compensate for all those additional calories come June.

Favorite Music

1. “Simmer” by Hayley Williams. So glad she’s branching out of Paramore for some solo work!

2. “Yummy” by Justin Bieber. I got serious Journals vibes from this track.

3. “Vulnerable” by Selena Gomez. The monotone vocals in the verses get me every time.

4. “Time and Again” by The Human Kind. There’s something very nostalgic about this song.

Favorite Celeb Instagrams

1. Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas being romantic as ever at the Golden Globes 2020.

3. Hair nostalgia with Marzia.

Favorite TV Episodes

1. Blackish, “Kid Life Crisis.” I nearly fell off my couch laughing when Jack sneezed on the expensive eggs!

2. The Good Doctor, “Fractured.” It was crazy seeing Moises Arias (Rico from Hannah Montana) in this episode. Also, Kerry is definitely going to be one of the most memorable patients in this series.

Favorite YouTube Videos

1. Tame Impala’s music video for “Lost in Yesterday” is January 2020 in a nutshell.

2. The Jonas Brothers’ music video for “What A Man Gotta Do” made 13-year-old Dana scream all over again.

3. SNL’s “Slow” feat. Halsey and Adam Driver is painfully funny.

Month of Love incoming.

 

 

March Favorites: Bachelor Arie Banned & #MarchforOurLives

Okay, so I know I always joke about the saying that goes “March comes in like a lion and out like a lamb,” but this year it legitimately did.

The beginning of the month was so rough, especially with all the non-stop snow storms. I could not deal. I don’t think I’ve ever been more annoyed with my life than I was at the start of March. Things mellowed out around March 20th or so, which was nice.

March brought some harsh realities to light in the pop culture and entertainment world, and rightfully so. Let’s take a look my faves for March 2018:

Favorite News Articles

1. The Bachelor‘s Arie gets banned from Minnesota. Damn straight. He deserves it after what he did to Becca.

2. #MarchforOurLives. Thank you, Pope Francis, for encouraging the youth to continue fighting to end gun violence.

3. “Shero” Barbies! I want one of each, please!

4. Chrissy Teigen brings an emotional support casserole on a plane. Brb, bookmarking this recipe for later.

Favorite Music

1. “Rotation” by Fickle Friends. Now THIS is what I call feel-good music! This band sounds like Great Goof Fine OK and Haim had a baby. OMJ. I so want to see these guys in concert!

2. “Figure A” by Tim Atlas. So old school funk I can’t handle it. Ah. Maze. Balls.

3. “Something” by Henry Green. I’ll definitely succumb.

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!
