Hashtag Shows That Need To Come Back

Good afternoon world! I just so happened to be on Twitter yesterday (like every day, really) and was checking out the Trending Topics when I saw this one:
Now, this can be interpreted as old, classic shows that just plain stopped being made (most people probably saw it as this one) but I, however wanted to use this as an excuse to talk about two of my favorite shows that ended long before their time. I absolutely adore these shows and have loved them even long after they left this world. I dedicate this blog post to all the television shows that were killed too soon.

The L.A. Complex

This show launched on the CW during April of 2012. It had sort of a weird season schedule as the first was 6 episodes long and then there was a 6 week break until the second season, which consisted of another 6 episodes, started.

Current Candle Favorite: Beach Cabana from Bath & Body Works

I don't know about you, but I am IN LOVE with Bath & Body Works candles. They just can't really be beat. I'm an especially festive person so of course I always get candles to match the season/holiday. My current candle craze happens to be the Beach Cabana candle by Slatkin & Co.
 
I always make it a priority to make a trip to BBW right after Christmas so i can catch their infamous semi-annul sale. I am so in love with this place and I make sure to take advantage of the great deals offered during these sales. So I went after Christmas this year intending to get pretty much any 3-wick candle as they were having the 2 for $20 special. When I got there, though, I didn't find those candles, but i did discover a display with 3-wick candles FOR ONLY  8 DOLLARS!? Some of the choices were obviously clearance Christmas ones, while the rest were very summery, resort or beach themed. I found this one and absolutely fell in love with it.

New Obsession-Worthy Songs

Hello interwebs! Today I thought I would share what I've currently been obsessing over and maybe give you some new music ideas, because I know I'm always looking for fresh tunes. All of these songs I literally heard for the first time a couple of days ago and have been listening to nonstop. Let me know if you enjoy these as much as I do! <3
Get Lucky - Daft Punk feat. Pharrell Williams
I've never really listened to Daft Punk before, or Pharrell for that matter. I was on Spotify and figured I should check out what is currently the Number 1 song on there. I guess I was pleasantly surprised because this is not what I expected this song to sound like! It is such a fun, upbeat, dance party song. What I love about this is how much it resembles the disco era. Now, that genre is one of my guilty pleasures so of course I would love any modern song that sounds like it came out of it. I'm really enjoying this tune.

Acting Mindset

As I sit here reading my script to prepare for my final scene in my acting class, I thought it'd be a swell idea if I wrote down what I was thinking.

After all, I'm always thinking the same thing when reading lines: does this sound real?

My Top 10 Graduation Tunes

It's that time of year again: where all the high school seniors are celebrated and sent off into the real world. I graduate June 7th and, being the cheesy, sentimental freak I am, just had to put together a graduation playlist. The couple weeks leading up to the big day, I've been listening to these songs a lot. Some of them bring back nostalgic memories and some just make you feel good and positive about what lies ahead. Nevertheless, music can really make you think, and we all get these many feelings rushing back at us during this time. Take a minute. Just stop and think about all that you've accomplished and how exciting and mysterious the future will be. These songs are in no particular order.

Review: The Body Shop Banana Shampoo + Conditioner


I had heard so much about this stuff over the past few years here on the Internet: Banana Shampoo and Conditioner by The Body Shop. After all, anything hyped up this much is worth trying right? Well I decided to find out for myself.

Way back in September I decided to go on a "health kick", so to speak, for my hair. I had straightened my hair up until about 3 years ago when I figured I would just go natural. Like me, people with thick, curly, frizzy, and damaged hair are always on the hunt for moisturizing products. Upon hearing about this natural product and how great bananas are supposed to be for hair, I took a trip to the mall one day and dropped in to The Body Shop. I had never been there before, but have a not-so-secret obsession with Bath & Body Works so of course this store is right up my alley.

Welcome!


Well, I finally did it. Yup, I made a blog. For some reason it's taken me years to actually make one, after countless visits to others, and decided ---- or rather had an epiphany--- to create one for myself. I don't know why I didn't think of doing this sooner.
