2014 Primetime Emmy Awards

Kerry Washington in Prada

I may have missed the entire show from being at work and out to dinner, but we’d never miss a chance of covering the red carpet.

Cover of the Day


This cover of Arthur’s theme song is such a sweet little throwback to my childhood. I don’t know who Chance the Rapper is, but I do like this cover and the fact that it includes Jessie Ware. Winner.

The Bachelorette Season Finale Last Night

Spoilers ahead! Last nights “After the Final Rose” was a jaw dropper. We all know what could potentially “happen” during a Fantasy Suite date, but there’s a little part of us that doesn’t – unless it gets outed like it did last night. In the past, contestants like Emily Maynard and Sean Lowe have passed on the Fantasy Suite, whereas Juan Pablo clearly didn’t. With Andi, we weren’t quite sure. That is, until Nick – the runner-up aired out their dirty laundry for all to see asking her directly why she made love to him if she didn’t love him.

Embarrassing.

I’ve been reading on a couple of blogs today and there are a few different stances. Some are wondering if Nick slut-shamed her. Some are wondering if he had been dying to say something like that on live television because she had refused to see him since the show ended.

Here are my thoughts and I’ll try and condense them:

  • Nick seems like a pretty sensitive guy. He is dealing with a heartbreak or maybe it’s just for show, but he looks a little bit torn up. I don’t think he meant to slut shame her, but I think maybe for him (and there are many people that have this point of view!) being intimate in a relationship means a lot more to him than maybe for her. I don’t think it’s wrong for him to question that.
  • If it’s bitterness or resentment towards Andi, then yes – she’s right, it is definitely a low blow. It’s true that that is private and no one really needs to know that.
  • Thirdly, didn’t it seem like everyone was airing out her personal life last night on that episode? First, Nick then Josh and wanting babies? That’s what she gets for being on The Bachelorette I guess.

Overall, … I wish she would have ended up with Marcus. Okay, no. Nick was not the fan favorite throughout the show and I don’t know if people would have been all that happy if they had ended up together anyways. We finished another season though. We hope Andi’s happy. Please tell us who the next Bachelor is. I hope it is Arie.

The Weekend: Lots of Things!

photo 4

It’s been two weeks since we’ve had one of these posts and so much has happened! I didn’t have time to post last weekend’s highlights so I’m combining it with this lovely holiday weekend. Some of my best girl friends from Seattle flew to see Ash and I for the long weekend and like any vacation we jam packed our days from start to finish. It’s interesting how the trips you plan when you are out of college and “more of an adult” shift from the vacation breaks you had when you were in school. Instead of traveling to cities where you plan on drinking constantly and sleeping in because of your hangovers, you’re waking up at 8:00 and getting your morning started. (Sort of like how the five of us would any day!) Instead of drinking, we put our money towards amazing meals and instead of going to bars, we went wine tasting in Sonoma. So there.

- also don’t those fireworks look great?! They went off Wednesday evening in San Francisco after the Giant’s game and they looked a whole lot better than the ones we tried to watch on 4th of July from this view.

I did my first hike with some co-workers at Rancho San Antonio Open Space last weekend! There really are some gorgeous views here in the Bay Area.

On Sunday afternoon, we caught a free concert from Yuna and Allen Stone at Stern Grove. We had never been over to this area before, but we loved how it was just kind of hidden in this park and large enough to hold a concert and fit THIS many people. It’s definitely one of the prettiest venues I’ve ever been to.

We’ve been watching episodes of this on Netflix.

We got athletic and competitive during our pre 4th of July company picnic with Bubble Soccer.

Happy 4th from the Seattle gang!

Visiting our Ash at Stanford

Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!

Finding Carter

I really don’t need to be adding any more shows to watch in addition to all the TV shows that I watch each night, but this one looked good! It’s surprising, right? Because it’s MTV. Actually the real reason I’m watching this series is because the main character “Carter” is played by Kathryn Prescott who was probably one of my favorite characters in Skins. I have no doubts that she will do an amazing job in this series as well.

Ice Cube Says Nice Things Angrily

Did anyone catch 22 Jump Street this weekend? I watched it last night and absolutely loved it. Ice Cube was too good.

Jonah Hill Addresses and Apologizes for His Remarks on The Tonight Show

Wow. I literally just watched this 5 minutes ago. I had heard about this controversy all day today and I feel like I heard that he had apologized with a statement, but I almost expected that he would do it again when he had the chance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon tonight and he did.

Typically when a celebrity apologizes for something they’ve done like say…Chris Brown or Justin Bieber, we kind of just shake it off because well, don’t they always make these kind of mistakes? Haven’t we heard the same thing over and over again?

Jonah Hill is such a powerful actor. He’s someone to be looked up to and I really appreciate how he took the time to admit that he had done wrong. His apology was sincere in a way that I haven’t seen before and more importantly he accepted responsibility. If there’s anything I hate more it’s that celebrities make excuses in their apologies or they think something was taken out of context and throw out the “Hey! This isn’t how I actually feel. I have friends that are x, y, or z.”

The worst. Excuse. Ever.

Jonah Hill isn’t going to have this swept under the rug and he shouldn’t, but he did something better tonight than most.

Ryan Lewis Asking People If They Know Who He Is

The whole revealing to people “I’m Ryan Lewis!” was so awkward to me. This segment is kind of similar to the one Fallon did with Robinson Cano and I think I liked that one better.

I found this segment to be really annoying though – am I alone in this?

C. Lowe by Scarlet & Gold

I am someone that has somewhat of an unhealthy obsession with greeting cards. You won’t find me hoarding them in my home, but I could be posted up in a bookstore, a gift shop, or a boutique just gazing through all of them for longer than the average human. If I were an adult collecting things, greeting cards would probably be it. One of my favorite Bachelor winners Catherine Lowe recently unveiled her new line C. Lowe for Scarlet and Gold including “Lowe Notes” and placemats. I find these to be quite cheeky. And now I want to send them to all my frands! To view all of the products, click here to visit Scarlet & Gold’s online shop.

Song of the Day

D’Angelo – Untitled (How Does It Feel)

I completely forgot how much I loved this song when I was younger until I was reminded of it watching Usher and Adam Levine cover it on The Voice last night. Throwback. Too good. What? I’m ded.

Shailene Woodley’s Possessions Kept In A Carry-On Suitcase

I feel kind of bad that I used to dislike Shailene’s character in that ABC Family series, but I’ve been thoroughly impressed by her work in films. She blew me away in Divergent. I actually find her herself to be quite fascinating though. I’ve watched a few interviews with her and from what I learned, she’s really granola. She doesn’t take too many showers and she uses very organic products or sometimes nothing at all. The most recent thing I learned about her though is that she keeps all of her belongings with her in carry-on suitcase. Apparently that’s all she needs. It’s not something that most humans can do, but the fact that she can is pretty cool.
