Music Video of the Day

I didn’t know that the music video for this song was released only recently, but it’s so cute! When I first heard this song off the album, I instantly knew that it would be one of my favorites and it’s still to this day one that I like to listen to whenever I’m getting ready.

Forgotify

I discovered Forgotify while perusing other blogs earlier in the week and couldn’t wait to actually check it out for myself. Basically, Forgotify pulls up the songs that have never even once been listened to on the app. Can you believe that there’s a reported 4 million of them? The first one I pulled up was a classical piece…Two Elegiac Melodies, Op. 34: No. 1: Heartwounds to be exact. And I couldn’t even begin to tell you what that means.

Paper Crown Bridesmaids

It was just a couple of weekends ago that Lauren Conrad and the entire Laguna Beach crew reunited for the wedding of their longtime friend Maura McManus. Their Instagrams from the big event were everywhere and as expected Lauren Conrad and her bbf Lo Bosworth as bridesmaids looked amazing. Shortly after the wedding, Lauren announced that Paper Crown – the line that both her and Maura co-founded would be unveiling a bridesmaid line. It was the same line that was used in Maura’s wedding and it was stunning. The collection is now up on their website and we’re huge fans. Not only are the silhouettes of the gowns gorgeous and modern, but will work so well for bridesmaids that wish to mix and match within color schemes or even not at all.

Hello Kitty is Not a Cat

In the most surprising reveal ever, everyone discovered this morning that Hello Kitty is not a cat. WHAT?! She looks very much like a cat to me and since I’ve believed this for so long, it’s very difficult for me to think of her as anything else. So it turns out that Christine R. Yano who is an anthropologist from the University of Hawaii has been studying Hello Kitty for years. Another mind-blowing fact. I didn’t think this was even possible.

Anyways, here are the new facts that we know:

When Yano was preparing her written texts for the exhibit at the Japanese American National Museum, she says she described Hello Kitty as a cat. “I was corrected — very firmly,” she says. “That’s one correction Sanrio made for my script for the show. Hello Kitty is not a cat. She’s a cartoon character. She is a little girl. She is a friend. But she is not a cat. She’s never depicted on all fours. She walks and sits like a two-legged creature. She does have a pet cat of her own, however, and it’s called Charmmy Kitty.”

Hello Kitty is British.
Kitty is actually named Kitty White and she has a full back story. She is a Scorpio. She loves apple pie. And she is the daughter of George and Mary White.

“She has a twin sister,” adds Yano. “She’s a perpetual third-grader. She lives outside of London. I could go on. A lot of people don’t know the story and a lot don’t care. But it’s interesting because Hello Kitty emerged in the 1970s, when the Japanese and Japanese women were into Britain. They loved the idea of Britain. It represented the quintessential idealized childhood, almost like a white picket fence. So the biography was created exactly for the tastes of that time

Wedding Mondays

Happy happy Monday everyone! I’ve been itching to share this video ever since I saw the details of Cindy and Chris’s special day on Green Wedding Shoes. Cindy was a gorgeous bride and I adored her dress – something I don’t think I could have ever pulled off myself. However, the best part about this wedding? The couple share a love for all things science and animals and that was very apparent in the theme of their wedding. Now I’ve included the video for you above, but the pictures? Swoon worthy for sure! Here are just a few of my favorite snaps.

Goodbye Vs. Ghost

I run into this dilemma quite often. Every time I’m at a social gathering, a dinner party, a work event, etc. I never know when it’s appropriate to start making the rounds and saying goodbye or if I should just keep my head low and quietly duck out. I’ve done both and I’ve never quite perfected because each time I feel like I look like the most awkward turtle in the room. When I found this flowchart on A Cup of Jo this morning, I thought that I had struck gold! Finally – a chart for people like me who just don’t know what to do. Readers, what do you think? Do you agree? Would you make some changes to this chart?
