FUN AT THE FAIR

The Lane County Fair returned to my city this year and I couldn’t help but attend as I annually do. As you can see above, I chose to outfit myself in matching floral print gear from Joyrich and pants colored in my favorite tone of the season, mustard yellow. Bright colors always seem to make me feel more aligned with the

3D BEACH ART BY JAMIE HARKINS

New Zealand based musician and artist, Jamie Harkins, has transformed the beach into his canvas of art featuring 3D-like images made using the creative process of anamorphosis. Having people pose with his works further intensifies the optical illusion effect it provokes. Harkins explained his artistic motivation to The New Zealand Herald, “We’ve seen other people doing stuff on beaches, but it’s

BRAXTON SISTERS LIKELY TO RELEASE A GROUP PROJECT THIS YEAR

Braxton Family Values is one of my favorite reality television shows. I’ve been watching the cohorts of Toni, Tamar, Trina, Traci and Towanda Braxton since the very first season. I consider it one of my favorites because of the heart and truth the program possesses. Most shows of its type use the word reality loosely, but this one doesn’t seem

LEXXI SAAL IS THIS WEEK’S ‘WOMAN CRUSH WEDNESDAY’

New York native, Lexxi Saal, is a force to be reckoned with. The teenage singer has opened up for pop acts such as Aaron Carter, Midnight Red, Austin Mahone and Cody Simpson, to name a few. I’ll never forget the first time I heard her sing. I was in Los Angeles attending a music festival she happened

ROBYN AND RÖYKSOPP ‘DO IT AGAIN’

9 LESSONS I LEARNED FROM THE ‘KIM KARDASHIAN: HOLLYWOOD’ GAME APP

You’ll sometimes come across something so unusual that it makes you wonder if it’s meant to be taken seriously or merely a joke. That’s the question arising from the popular new mobile game app, Kim Kardashian: Hollywood. With laughable advice tidbits like, “dating famous people will get you more fans too,” you have to wonder if Kim

A REVIEW ON THE TV VERSION OF ‘CANDIDLY NICOLE’

Being a huge fan of Nicole Richie and her AOL Original Series, Candidly Nicole, excited me for the VH1 network’s half hour version of the show which debuted last night. With hijinks that saw Nicole almost running over her father, Lionel Richie, while navigating the woes of learning how to parallel park and hijacking an online date she originally

BRAZIL HOSTING THE WORLD CUP IS THE NEW HUNGER GAMES

Brazil has been riddled with over a semi-century history of tragedy revolving around their involvement with the FIFA World Cup. From the deaths amassing a self-hosted 1950 World Cup defeat to the many controversies surrounding this year’s games, Brazil has become notorious for being plagued by World Cup associated contention. The country’s recent decision to host the 2014 FIFA World

In The Purge: Anarchy, it’s 2023 and the United States is now under the govern of an elite group of politicians known as the New Founding Fathers of America.

BEATS BY DRE WIRELESS HEADPHONES REVIEW

I’ve always wanted a pair of Beats By Dre headphones. I’m sure it was the good ole (subliminal) marketing of Dr. Dre‘s team or the fact that I’m always seeing them on football players, even on game-day fields. For me personally, they truly seemed more appealing than any other popular headband-style earphones on the market.

If you’ve been following me on twitter, you’d know that I’m a huge fan of the Lifetime Network television show Devious Maids. The second season is debuting soon (4/20/2014 at 10 PM, don’t miss it!) and the Lifetime Network hosted an exclusive event for fans (otherwise known as the #DeviousArmy) of the show, an event

MY FIRST TIME IN TEXAS

Unforgettable is an understatement. Arriving in San Antonio and seeing the river walk and The Alamo, supporting our Oregon Ducks at the Alamo-Bowl and witnessing them win was amazing. I was in the presence of wonderful company and feel like this trip ended my 2013 beautifully… Go Ducks!
