Music Mondays: Happy Holidaze

Posted by on December 15, 2014 | No Comments »

Let’s face it. If you aren’t listening to Christmas/Holiday music come December 1st, you’re basically on the naughty list. Buddy the elf said it himself,

“the best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear.”

With that being said, here are a few tunes you should know every (OK fine, most) words to.

Happy holidaze you filthy animals. 




Ugh… I Just…

Can’t. Even.


You never know when it’ll hit you. You could just wake up in the morning, check your iPhone for the temperature to see what you’ll pull together that morning and decide, like Nati, that…



After dealing with the weather, you casually scroll through your BFF’s snap story and, GASP!  like Adriana…


Maybe even ugh with Schuyler when you see someone Instagram their giant Acai bowl breakfast with a double scoop of oats and honey…


But the absolute worst for Sara is when you finally get into your car and you’re immediately confronted with booming noise from the stereo…



Or even worse, Taylor Swift is playing on the radio for the umpteenth time and like Shannon…



You might even be on your merry way to Dallas hall when two+ people walking one mile-per-hour are taking up the entire sidewalk making it almost impossible to pass through or  walk around them when you’re trying to get to class and like Addison…


If you’re maybe international, and some people are a little confused about your exact first language, you might take after Jessica…


Along with half of the population, apparently, you could just be flipping through the channels and as The Princess Diaries plays on The Disney Channel you remember like Taylor…



Or, if you’re anything like me, the whole world is just simply…DanielaDaniela

What Does Your Favorite Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show Look Say About You?

Posted by on December 10, 2014 | No Comments »

The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show is the ultimate guide in lingerie – it’s a mash-up between The Grammy’s and the “it” couture fashion show in Paris fashion week. With all the different looks, everyone always has a favorite theme. But, what does your favorite look say about you?


adventurous oneIf this rather worldly ensemble was your favorite from the show last night, you are quite definitely an adventurous one. You’re not afraid of what people think about you and you are always open to joining your best friend on the latest thrilling activity.


playful oneIf you’re the kind of fun-loving girl who loves to frolic in some sunflower fields and this was your favorite group of angels, then you are quite the playful one. You will want to invest in some of these fairy wings and butterfly-inspired over-the-knee heels.


chic oneAh yes. For those of you who love all things white, gold, and sparkly – you fall into the chic category (like me!). Although you might be a little more reserved, or sophisticated, in your wardrobe decisions you will always out shine the others with your gilded angel wings.


sassy oneIf you’re all about Victoria’s Secret PINK vivacious collection’s, then you must be a sassy one. You’re spunky and bold. You love to try new things from that sequined letterman jacket you found at that cute little store down the street to that new dish at your favorite restaurant with four jalapeños next to it.
