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?

KitchenSurfing

I’ve always wanted to be the kind of person who would host these monthly dinner parties. I wanted to prepare a menu, have impressive dinnerware and cook up a meal making it look absolutely flawless. I think if any one of my friends have seen me in the kitchen, they would probably say that I am the complete opposite. While browsing the internet last night, I discovered this service called Kitchensurfing that Bri Emery of DesignLoveFest has used. She recently hosted a dinner party of a group of her friends and used Kitchensurfing. The company provides a service that gives you a chef that cooks the meal that you want along with bringing along all of their supplies and cleaning up at the very end. Is this a dream?

To get started, you just need to pick your cuisine and the rest is downhill from there. Kitchensurfing is available in a number of major cities and throughout California.

How Do You Unwind?

For the past couple of months, I have been noticing that it has gotten more and more difficult to get out of bed. When I first started my job, I was up at 7AM every day and though I wouldn’t get into work until a couple hours later, I would get ready in a timely manner and then spend an extra 30 minutes on Yow Yow! At that time, I remember thinking to myself – – wow, this is the life. I can have a job that allows me to put time into Yow Yow! before AND after work – (something we all know I struggled with prior)

As of late though, I let the alarm go off (just the sound of the radio turning on – I’m so old school like that) and it runs until I hit a song that I just can’t stand to listen to in the morning or that won’t allow me to dream daze through. This usually happens between 15-45 minutes after the alarm originally gets off. The process of getting ready for work and putting my face on gets slower. I don’t have time to blog in the morning. Instead I just listen to more music to help soundtrack me getting ready. Hardships of a 24-year old y’all!

So the last two days I’ve been changing up my routine a bit before I go to bed. My co-worker Nadia told me that if I want to get a healthy night of sleep, I need to completely shut down 30 minutes before. No television. No laptop. No phone. And definitely no work. It’s impossible for me to even try that idea because that’s something that I’ve never done.

Instead, two nights ago I did work on my laptop (Yow Yow! stuff) in my bed! When I got bored, I called it a night at 11:30 which I find to be reasonable. This was different for me because I eliminated what I usually do which is work in front of the TV on my couch.

Last night, I decided to work to the tune of softer music. Quadron. It ended up with me just singing at the top of my lungs to her entire album. Sorry neighbors. So instead of “winding down,” I just got all wound up! I can’t win.

Readers, I’m so curious – how do you unwind at night before bed? Do you snack? Shut off completely? I need to know.

Michelle Obama Interviews Richard Sherman

In a new video supporting her ‘Let’s Move!’ campaign, Michelle Obama interviews Richard Sherman who along with the Seattle Seahawks sous-chef cooks up an example of a healthy meal for children in school. The best part of this video? Richard Sherman responding to Michelle Obama spoofing his very controversial post-game rant from last season. How can we forget?

He is just the best.

Kids Will Build Sushi

When I was a kid, I just played with Legos, Polly Pockets, Barbies, and was serious collecting Beanie Babies. There was little building in my childhood, but who knows – kids can grow up to be anything these days even sushi chefs! How adorable is this wooden sushi set?! The set was designed by Japanese design firm Plapax and contains 45 wooden pieces. So how much does this cost exactly? Only 7,400 yen. Worth it.

#YesAllWomen

sophia bush

 

The #YesAllWomen hashtag is by far one of the most powerful things I have ever seen spread on social media. I am loving the fact that women are stepping out and sharing their stories about what they have had to face. A woman will endure multiple cases of misogyny throughout their life and if there’s something we can learn from this incident it’s that we need to change the way people are taught to look at women.

A woman is an individual – a human being.

A woman does not owe a man anything.

Women are not to be blamed for being able to stand up to another man.

Women are not objects and do not deserve to be objectified.

It is exhausting to think that in this day and age, we haven’t come far enough in society. It’s heartbreaking that in 2014 Elliot Rodger could commit a crime as horrible as this one because of how he believed he should have been treated by women.

For some, it’s time to check your priv.

Facebook Puts A Relationship Target On Everyone’s Back

I was doing my Facebook thing the other day when I noticed on my friend’s profile that there was a little button next to his relationship status that said “Ask.” Now, I thought I knew the status of his relationship, but this button caused me to second guess that. I also was so curious about what would happen if I pressed it. Did they receive a notification? Probably. What did the notification say? I don’t really know. I toggled my cursor over it for a couple seconds before I decided against it. If I had done it, I would have to text this friend to let him know and explain it to him and that seemed like too much overhead to me.

So naturally, I waited for someone else to do it first and blog about it. Sure enough, Refinery29 had my back!

This comes up only for those people listed as single or who haven’t disclosed a status. When an inquiring mind wants to know more, he or she simply clicks the button and has the option to send a customized message to friends regarding their romantic life. They’ll receive a notification that someone’s asked about their relationship status, and they can choose to respond with an answer, update their profile, or simply ignore the request altogether. It seems there’s no way to nix this new add-on. 

The whole idea seems a little bit invasive to me. If someone I hadn’t talked to in a long time asked me with that button, I would feel pretty weirded out. And if a close friend did, I wonder why they just didn’t ask me in person! I don’t see a happy medium with this new feature, but I do find it quite amusing.

Two Guys Bow Tie

Unfortunately, we’ve had yet another wedding-less Monday. I want you all to know though that that doesn’t mean I have given up. We’re just still scouring for the video that’s right for our series and for Yow Yow! I kid you not – Jennie and Ashley referred me to a video last night that would’ve brought anyone to tears. When it didn’t for me, Ashley called me The Tin Man.

I think my expectations for wedding videos are now sky rocketing.

I did, however, come across this cheeky post for wooden bow ties and while it’s not a wedding video it is still wedding related. Wedding Wednesdays!

Two Guys Bow Tie offer a wide selection to fit any kind of wedding and theme, but an important thing to note is that if they don’t have one that matches what you’re looking for, you can customize with them.

These are so hip, I can’t even handle it. Basically, I love them.

ABC’s Fresh Off the Boat

I learned yesterday that ABC added a new show to their lineup that features a Taiwanese family living in America. I’m actually pretty interested in seeing how this turns out because I’ve never watched an Asian-American sitcom before. There will definitely be things that I can relate to and will find in general humorous. With that said, I do have some concerns. I hope that the show will have a good balance of being not only funny, but also not cheesy and stereotypical. After watching the trailer, I have decided that I didn’t enjoy the portrayal of the mother. She just doesn’t seem like she’d be a likeable character and is fitting into every stereotype I’ve ever heard of Asian mothers. It’s just a trailer though so I’m not going to get my hopes up quite yet.

Inception IRL

This is my favorite thing on the internet today. Macaulay Culkin is wearing a t-shirt of Ryan Gosling wearing a t-shirt with Macaulay Culkin on it. It is just too good.

I guess this goes without saying, but we’re glad that Macaulay has this for him today because let’s be real – his ex Mila Kunis is expecting, engaged, and totally winning.
