Ariana’s impression of Celine Dion is so spot on.

Every Friday, my team has this tradition of playing old skool hip hop jamz in our pod. We call it Hip Hop Fridays. And when I saw this video, I thought it was perfection. Raise your hand if you watched this show after school when you were a child.
25 men will go on dates with both Kaitlyn AND Britt! For the first time ever in Bachelor/Bachelorette history, there will be two bachelorettes and they pretty much were the babes of last season’s The Bachelor. In the beginning of the season, Britt was the frontrunner for The Bachelor, but seeing Kaitlyn get as far as she did, others were convinced that she would be the next Bachelorette. Tough choice, but having both of them will definitely make up for some entertainment.
Apparently the guys will go after both of them and ultimately decide who they think will make the better wife. Will there be one of them left standing? Will both of them go after the same guy? Will Britt and Kaitlyn each have a rose to give out at the very end? So many questions about logistics. We’re looking forward to May 18th when the next season starts!
There really is no perfect wedding video for today than this one by Bachelorette Desiree Hartsock on the day of The Bachelor finale! Real talk though – we are full of love after this weekend. Today, Mandi and I attended The Bold Italic’s Love/Make (hipster) wedding expo and we pretty much had the best day ever. Don’t worry, we’ll be writing a whole post about this later. Des was one of my favorite Bachelor contestants and Bachelorettes. I’m not sure why, but I always felt like I identified with her the most. Before appearing on the show, she actually worked in the wedding industry at a dress store, but we also just thought she was the biggest sweetheart. I still remember telling my own friends, “When Des cries, I cry.” It’s been awhile since that season, but I don’t think that was a lie!
Now, Catherine and Sean are my favorite Bachelor couple, but I really like Des and Chris too mostly because they like to remain a little bit more private. They are both living in Seattle now, but got married in California.
Desiree’s custom-designed gown from Maggie Sottero is an absolute dream. I don’t see too many one-shoulder dresses that I love, but this one is something else.

I have to admit that when I first heard about Fresh Off the Boat becoming a television series on ABC, I wanted to boycott the show. I had seen the commercials for it and the acting sometimes made me cringe, but it wasn’t until Kevin told me that he was entirely caught up on the series that I thought it deserved a shot. How quickly I changed my tune…
I was afraid that by others watching the show that Asian Americans would be faced with those confirmations about our stereotypes or that everyone would immediately assume that my childhood was exactly like Eddie’s which was going to be portrayed negatively. In fact, my childhood and my brother’s was a lot like Eddie’s and it wasn’t portrayed negatively. I am now a fan of the show and I think it does something great for Asian Americans. It gives us something to relate to because I can guarantee you growing up, I never felt like anyone could really relate to me in this sense.
I don’t know about any of you, but I’ve been completely hooked on Jane the Virgin since the show started. One of the lead actors on the series, Justin Baldoni, just announced that him and his wife Emily are expecting and they did it in the most adorable way possible. Since it’s Valentine’s Day and the love is strong and apparent from this video, we’re still going along with our Valentine’s Day week theme. If this doesn’t at least make you tear up a little bit, then I’m all out of ideas!
I’m looking forward to the day when I learn one of my best friends is expecting. Tears. For days.
PS: At the very end of the video, Emily and Justin learn the gender of their baby, but they’re deciding to keep that part to themselves for now!
Typically when we go off the grid from Yow Yow! it’s best to ease into a bit more slowly. I’ve been battling a nasty cold that’s been going around the office and it’s sticking around a lot longer than I would prefer. Naturally, that puts a little behind the news, but I’m going to play some catch up before I go to bed early!
Our favorite ‘Modern Family’ star, Sarah Hyland, was featured in Cosmo recently and she looks fantastic! I think we’re all excited for Sarah to have an amazing year especially coming out of her long-term abusive relationship in 2014. We heard a rumor that she’s dating again and we think she totally deserves to be happy and in love (hopefully!) once again!
It’s the Monday after the Super Bowl so HOBviously everything is Super Bowl themed today. The only thing is…we haven’t talked about the game because well, we all know what happened so no need to dwell. Will Ferrell is basically killing this.
As we get closer and closer to the Super Bowl, this stuff just gets better and better.

So I missed Sia’s performance of “Elastic Heart” last night, but it’s a performance that I was looking forward to all week because Maddie Ziegler was going to be perofrming choreography alongside her. As expected, it didn’t disappoint. Is it weird that I felt like my eyes were glued to her moves rather than Sia herself? I guess that’s not so surprising because Sia herself was in one position the entire time and that was maybe done on purpose to give Maddie more of the attention.
It seems like Brittany Hampton was just announced as DVF’s newest brand ambassador yesterday, but already, it looks like the fashion designer is on her way to find her second brand ambassador and hosting the second season of her show on E! once again. Initially, I didn’t think that I would enjoy this reality show as much as I would, but from the very first episode I was hooked. I think it was impossible for me to miss an episode of it every Sunday so I always had to make sure I was home to catch it. What I loved the most? That the audience gets an inside look at what it’s really like to be in the fashion industry and that these girls aren’t perfect. In fact, there’s something wrong with all of them as they all have flaws and that there isn’t a clear winner. Diane surprised me the most! You never know who she’s going to send home and how she’s going to send them home including inviting a girl into her car with her and telling her the bad news while Diane herself, is on her way to another event. Ruthless. I’ve since followed Brittany on Instagram just to get a glimpse of what she’s been up to her in her job and already she’s been busy at work styling, making appearances, and traveling to DVF store locations across the country.
Sounds like the gig is just as awesome as it sounds! Andddd we’re jealous.
I may have missed the awards show, but I did get to catch Gina Rodriguez winning her Golden Globe for Jane the Virgin and it was amazing! I had heard that her speech was one of the best and lucky for me, it just happened to be the one I caught before I left. I also heard that George Clooney gave a great speech as well which I caught yesterday. Since they were the two that stood out to me the most, I thought that it would make sense to share them again with you all here just in case you missed it! Also, if you haven’t had a chance to watch Jane the Virgin yet, you should! CW made a great decision in picking that series up.
