REPUTATION

OKAY who saw the VMA & Taylor Swift’s new music video LOOK WHAT YOU MADE ME DO.? IT WAS PHENOMONAL.! I loved the song and then when the music video came out I was like omgggg ICONIC.!! How she referenced all of her haters and everything that was said about her since her career blew up.

One of my favorite parts was the snakes scene. She did that scene for KIMYE because after that whole thing with Kanye lyrics calling her a bitch came out and Kim proved she did approve, TS still said she never approved being called a BITCH and Kim never had that recording so maybe she was right, but people still called her a snake so hence the snakes……. She wore all her old outfits from different music videos, looked like “Katy Perry” (Who I love btw), & had references to her “SQUAD” while also having the end of the music video be of her old selves literally dying.! Like she said “The old Taylor can’t come to the phone right now, WHY.? Oh cause she’s dead.!!!” I also love how she had on her old outfits from tours and old music videos and even award shows at the end with comments about what people said about her.!!! She made fun of herself and of those people all at once by saying you can say what you want to say, but at the end of the day she still rose to the TOP and her “REPUTATION” speaks for itself.! I can’t wait until REPUTATION comes out.!

P.S. did anyone else notice the SQUAD names on her new but same old shirt at the end & of course she has her main girl that she known since 2008 and been her OG squad member her ride or die, right hand girl, her main girl on the shirt too my girl Selena Gomez.!!!

P.S.S. Who noticed the I LOVE TS shirt similar to what Tom Hiddleton worn.

For anyone who didn’t understand the MV you can visit these sites that explains it well.

A Girl Who Loves Food

I am Pinning every food product, mainly smoothie on Pinterest these days. So I thought I would give you links to the ones I tried so far so you can try it out for yourself. I also included pictures of pinterest foods I did and of my own and description of how I liked them.

  1. Smoothie Bowl– Don’t have this on pinterest, but done it before and it’s easy and soooo good. I used: Strawberries, Non Fat Greek Yogurt, blueberries, cinnamon, nuts and granola. Directions- Smash the strawberries(I used a food masher to crush them) then put greek yogurt in, I eyed it since I’ve done it before. I put nuts in the smoothie bowl as well and for toppings… blueberries, cinnamon for taste and some granola. smoothie bowl.JPG
  2. Creamy Vanilla Chia Seed Pudding– Okay so this one I saw on pinterest and in the comment section alot of people were saying they tried it and some of their’s came out a bit watery and how it was good either way. So I am a woman who likes to try food atleast once (SOME FOODS LOLS) So I followed the recipe to the T. I was afraid it was going to come out watery but it was thick enough.! I feel that leaving it overnight again would have made it thicker though. I ate some of it and the rest I did not. I didn’t like it IDK why, but it didn’t make me feel good. I was feeling awful for a few hours later and I had this for breakfast. I put strawberries and blueberries and cinnamon with nuts on top. Now my chia seeds are good I eat them all the time, but maybe my taste buds just wasn’t feeling it. Like I said others have said that they enjoyed it so I guess it was just me. I deleted the pin off my pinterest but here is the link to the page if you want to try it.

     

  3. Whole Wheat Wrap– I didn’t find this one on Pinterest, but it was something I wanted to have for lunch and I am still full. I just had it about 20-30 minutes ago. I use a whole wheat wrap that we have and put butter on it and toasted it a bit. I had bacon, lettuce, chicken, and onions in it topped with honey mustard dressing and then I cut it in half. It was very delicious and I would be making again.!

    I hope you like this blog post. Give it some likes so I would know if to do more. Thanks for visiting.! 🙂

Free and Loose

I am down south and feeling more free than anything else. I don’t feel pressured or angry because of the fakeness. I don’t feel boredom I feel free and loose.

I haven’t done much I mean I am in the busiest city so I doubt I would have been able to do everything within 3 weeks, but what I’ve done so far feels liberating. The crazy part.? I haven’t done nothing out of the ordinary. I just don’t have fake people around me and that is what makes everything so perfect. Maybe I will encounter those kinds of people when I get out more, but I am wiser and different and I know when those kinds of people enter my life or at least are trying to, so I know who to shut out now.

Feeling free by doing NOTHING never felt so good. I don’t hear the same excuses anymore. The same lies and have to pretend to care. I don’t “care” about people’s feelings anymore because I WILL NEVER EVER see them again.!! I can finally shut them out of my life. Before I felt like I had to talk to them because there was no one else. I knew noone else there, but now I don’t give a damn. I deleted them from social media and my phone and my life and I swear I haven’t seen a gray hair since. 🤣🤣🤣🤣

I haven’t done much besides the movies and visiting supermarkets and different places I will be going to every now and then. Still haven’t had the chance to see my best friend yet because she works nonstop and lives 3 hours away, but we are still planning. I am applying for jobs, I am doing everything I did there, but here I am happier. I am content. More Free than I’ve ever been. IDK if it’s being here or taking those people out of my life or both, BUT GOD does it feel AMAZING.!! Knowing I won’t hear those same excuses of why people can’t go out or the lies & sappy stories and pretend to care. I don’t have to no more because I am gone and I finally realized not to care and to stop being afraid of being alone.!!

So here are some pictures I captured throughout my three weeks of being here. Live, Laugh, Love. BUT most IMPORTANTLY BE TRUE TO YOU.!!

Love On TV

Can you get married to a complete stranger in a week.? Or within 10 weeks.? What about the first time you ever meet your spouse is on your wedding day.? Can you go on a tv show and let “professional” match makers tell you which person is your perfect match.? Can you eliminate potential bachelors/bachelorettes until you get to your perfect one.? Well in these tv shows that is exactly what these complete strangers does. They drop everything at home and go on tv hoping to find love.

The Spouse House

This is a new TLC show that aired its 3rd episode this week. Now the Spouse House is about 14 singles moving into the house looking for love. The catch.? Well there HAS to be a proposal each week or people have to leave. The people the singles feel didn’t make a connection with anyone are the ones that are voted out. If there is a proposal then everyone stays in the house and we watch the engaged couple become married. Each season will be in a new city & the singles all have to be in that city so when the show is done there won’t be any problems with trying to move near each other because they all live in the same city.

Married At First Sight

Now I NEVER watched this even though I wanted to. I never got the chance I kept forgetting. Now based on what it says online this is what the show is about. . .  “The cart comes way before the horse in the reality series “Married at First Sight.” Based on a hit Danish format, “Married…” features six people who agree to participate in an extreme experiment: Each covenants legal marriage with a complete stranger. Specialists — including a spiritualist, a relationship coach and a sociologist — use scientific matchmaking methods to determine each couple, who will not have met or had contact with each other until the wedding day. The series then documents the relationships, including honeymoons and other relatable events of married life. After several weeks, each couple must decide whether to remain together or go their individual ways.”

Are You The One

I really love this show. 20 singles come into one of the houses they have. The singles house and must communicate with each person to figure out who their match is. Each week there is a new game they must play to score dates with certain people and if they win the producers set up a romantic date for the couples. At night when the couples are on their date the rest of the cast mates must choose which couple to send to the truth booth to see if they are a perfect match. Once the ceremony comes we find out if the couple who was sent to the truth booth was a match or not. If they weren’t they have to find their match with someone else. If they were they move into the honeymoon suite (2nd house). Then everyone guess who their perfect match is by who they like and put their hand print into this machine and then there are beams to let people know how much matches are correct or wrong. There are 10 beams so when all of them are lit that means they win $1 million to split among themselves. If there are no beams at the end of each ceremony then they lose money. I love this show because you always see people who are not a match still fight to be together. And honestly to this day there is only ONE perfect match who is married with a child the rest didn’t make it. Lets just say that there are more non perfect matches together than perfect. So maybe the match makers were wrong.?

Bachelor/Bachelorette

I don’t watch these shows but here is a description I found online. All of the rules are adopted from the rules of The Bachelor, its parent show. The series revolves around a single bachelorette (deemed eligible), who is usually a reject from the previous Bachelor season, and a pool of romantic interests (typically 25; 30 in season 5), which could include a potential husband for the bachelorette. For the final selection, one of two male suitors proposes to the bachelorette. All eleven seasons of The Bachelorette have ended with a proposal which the Bachelorette either accepted or declined. This differs from The Bachelor, who does not always propose at the end of the show. Season 13 is the first to have an African-American contestant as the bachelorette.

bachelorette

At the end of it all. All the craziness all these people have ONE thing in common. Finding love. Hopefully the ones that last outside the show last forever. I mean everyone deserves love even if it’s just for TV.

Pinning My New Bedroom

I had Pinterest for a while now, but it was recently when I started using it more and more. I look at ideas for food, DIY, decor and I do find a lot of great things. I have been looking specifically into new bedroom decor for my new bedroom and I found some amazing things that I will be trying. I can’t wait to try all the ideas and to paint my room as well. I have an idea of a creme color for the walls so then I can have colorful bed sheets and items all around.

Here are some awesome and simple ideas I will be trying & comment below on what you look for to PIN.! 🙂

Can Happiness Be Real.?

Can it be true that happiness can be REAL.? Can everyone really be happy in their life.? I used to have so much dubious about happiness because I felt it was never a thing for me to truly have. I mean of course yes I get happy at times with certain things, BUT to be sincerely happy all the time or majority of the time.? Well that is something that was rare for me, but I think I broke the curse and I can actually be happy for real. I think happiness can be REAL.!

I am starting a new chapter in my life one where I have a say in my endeavours. I know I WILL succeed because this time I know what I want and what I don’t want or NEED. This time I am in control and I know what to do to just be happy. To keep the happiness at in all time HIGH.

And now here are some pictures of me enjoying my happiness and starting my new chapter. 🙂
