But, seriously. It’s almost like Lizzie McGuire revived her singing career and she didn’t, herself. I half-expected Aaron Carter to appear out of nowhere because this song and this video were so horrid.
Ouch, is that too harsh? Chasing the Sun? R U 4 real.
Well what kind of blog would we be if we didn’t post this trailer as it was released today? I don’t really understand the hype around this movie or these books. Though I haven’t read the books myself, I had a number of people tell me that it wasn’t well written and that they didn’t enjoy reading it. That’s what my friends said about Twilight too, but there were still so many people watching that. I had to watch the trailer because I was intrigued. I figured if it was being released on The Today Show that this had to be a big deal. After watching the trailer, my views on it haven’t really changed. The film is being released on Valentine’s Day of next year – nearly 7 months from now! This was just a 2:25 minute trailer and everyone went nuts. There’s not much else to say about the weird sounds at the end… didn’t that just remind you of some kind of a horror movie?
We’re a little bit late on this because this news was actually revealed last week, but WE didn’t get a chance to really talk about it and now I want to. Airbnb has long been overdue for a makeover so I’m pretty excited to see this new change in them, but – you guys – this logo… are you seeing what I’m seeing? I realize it’s an upside-down heart, but it also looks like… other things. It ain’t wrong, I mean maybe that’s what they wanted – to spark some buzz and conversation, but I can’t help but giggle just a little bit every time I see. Yes, I’m immature.
Here’s some things that I do like about their rebranding though:
I feel a little silly agreeing that this list is true, but it is. Being an Asian girl, myself, I whole-heartedly agree with this list. Back then, I used to think that there were only two types, but wow – now that we’re at 18, I think that’s amazing! I watched the entire video because I really wanted to figure out which type I was and I think I landed on being the Hipster Asian. Shocker. Blogger.
In things I am watching this morning while I get ready for work… the best ever.
Victoria’s Secret model Candice Swanepoel is featured in Free People’s latest July catalog and to promote this month’s styling they featured a behind-the-scenes slash get-to-know type of a video for Candice. In it, we learn a couple of facts: 1. that she doesn’t have a driver’s license and 2. that she grew up on a dairy farm. Candice has always been one of my favorite angels and we’re loving this video that the brand has created. They’ve done such a great job lately with all of their videos and we couldn’t be more impressed with them.
My pal Jackson sent me this because he obviously knew that I would like it and post to Yow Yow! It’s kind of its own parody on that video that was released a few months ago called “First Kiss.” Do you all remember all of the words I had to say on that?! The video we’re watching is one that I’m responding to a little bit better. It’s more light-hearted and I’m not seeing it all over my Facebook newsfeed with people remarking that is the most inspiring thing they’ve ever seen.
It’s just a silly video so let’s just stick with that.
Love the song. Hate the video that aired out all of their dirty laundry. BLAH! If I were Paula, I would hate to see my texts to my s/o up in a music video.

Bow down to the men who did this in heels.
Pantene released a new video today that is sure to go viral and is a strong follow-up to their previous video about labels. In the new video, the brand urges women to stop apologizing for things that happen in our every day lives that don’t require an apology at all. It’s a powerful message and one that is so relatable to women in this day and age. I hate to admit this, but I am totally one of those women and it’s a bad habit that I’ve been trying to shake. I find myself apologizing when I’m about to make a suggestion or when I want to clarify on a detail when what I should be doing is just speaking – no apology needed. Someone close to me the other day recognized that I was apologizing for something kind of silly and asked me why I was apologizing to begin with and that I needed to stop apologizing. And you know how I responded? With another “sorry.”
No it’s not easy to kick the habit to the curb, but maybe we can all help each other. I’m really glad that Pantene has decided to address this issue and I hope it gets the attention that it deserves.
