bachelorette recap | week 5; night 1

End of Group Date: Kenny and Lee...Lee and Kenny. These two are just getting started. There's nothing to this, but the one one one time with Bryan. And to be honest, I was just staring at him the whole time. He gets the rose and I clapped I was so happy. Too good to be true, fine by me.

One on One: with Jack, good on paper guy. He's kinda awkward to me. Like he's having first date jitters, which is understandable, it's the first one on one, but still. Oh that first kiss, ewwwww so awkward. Poor guy. Wait a second, Jack thought that kiss was good? She pulled away and laughed. Oh this poor sob.

Weird cut to the guys hanging out bitching. Lee is acting like he's Rachel's eyes and ears. Lee has proven he's a racist by his tweets, I won't post them here cause I'm not about that life, but google it. Lee uses his words to hurt people on the show and on twitter. Lee is your classic pot stirrer, who likes to see how far he can push people.

back to the date, I think Jack is setting himself up here cause he's going home. You can tell Rachel is not feeling it. He's all over the place. I love Paris or did he say "parents? Maybe parents he followed it up with "is your dad funny?" like I've never had a first date ask me that. Also, when he smiles so wide and dips his head, he looks like a serial killer. I'm proud of her for just putting it out there. I feel like now I'm awkward after watching that! My mom texted me during and said "Jack is dying in front of our eyes" and she was so spot on.

Rose Ceremony: who is this Adam? Have I seen him before? Okay, I think he's going home and Iggy too! Cause I just don't see it and hate his name haha. If Rachel heard Adam say "this snack" about him, I don't think he'd still be there. Cya Iggy the Iguana. Also goodbye Tickle Monster. EW god, if I never see that again it'll be too soon. WHY couldn't he just hug her goodbye like a normal person? Guys, I need to find a bf asap, cause I can't have it be just me and Tickle Monster left in the single pool. Bryan in a suit, we need more of this, esp that black detail. Damn.

Bryan had his tongue out for a hot minute and my goodness...ohhh one on oneeeee.
One on One: with Bryan. What are you talking about crazy, Dean? She is into him. I'm so jealous of her, cuddled up with her on the train. Wow, what a cool date! I'm not adventurous like this, but it's a once in a lifetime, and with him next to me, done deal. Girl, Rach knowing about 187, my girl is hip hop. I like that he's so confident. I don't think it's him being overly cocky, but him believing in their relationship and what he sees in her. I'm really digging him (more than the looks now...) Rachel would be a good fit for him, but I can take him off her hands. People say I'm a catch too, Rach and I'm single af. What's wrong w/me? Not sure, jury is still out...get it, she's a lawyer. Her dinner outfit is fireeee, yasss girl. I think Bryan gets his haircut with scissors, it's very nice in the back. Bryan is back for another week ladies and gents, (I should just say ladies and Dad, cause he's the only dude reading...if he's not, let me know in the comments)

Group date: Okay, I have to say, I wish I could see Bryan in that outfit...any way, this group date was fun! I really liked how all of them got into it. Peter is SO into her. I liked that he was handsy with her. Good for Will for having some big ups and putting on a show. Aweeeee, Kenny FaceTiming with his daughter, so cute. Lee, looking at pictures in a book, doesn't count as reading...sorry, pal! Will's alone time was really good. Alex's too, I didn't hate his letter either. I feel like this is when it starts to get super confusing for her. All of the guys that are on this date are into her and it's showing. Josiah is a little over the top with this, laying it on so thick. I love how we see the alone time crashing and burning, but Josiah comes out and says "it was great. so good." Was it? Objection, prosecutor. (2 for 2 with the lawyer puns...!) Oh shit, Rachel is into Peter. And they are going for it, for a second I forgot it was a group date. Way to go, Will! You have been a slow horse, but I really like that you are you!

Two on One: Kenny & Lee. You can see what type of guys there are by how they exited...Lee walked through the door. Kenny walked through, but made sure it closed.  Keep that mindset, Kenny. Focus on her. I like that they have a little inside joke, which I think I missed, haha! Honestly, if onion time happened while Bryan was around, it was bound to go right over my head. Lee is a story teller and an actor. God Rachel, don't be this naive. I do think they both are trying to make themselves look better. But at the end of the day, none of the guys tell the same story Lee does. I have a question, why is Kenny and Rachel so cold, but Lee is chilling in his lightweight hoodie?! Kenny should've said "ask the guys." Also, he's kinda acting like a crazy person now.

Well, of course we're having a cliffhanger, but here's my overall take on tonight's episode-Bryan, Peter, and Will are in the lead. And I'm almost thinking both Kenny and Lee go home tomorrow after some dramz of course. Let's discuss in the comments or DMs-cause a bunch of you like to keep up with me there and I love it! Until tomorrow, peeps, xo!

a book in review!

Brief Summary:

A charming novel about falling in love (or like) in the digital age—the never-before-seen full story.
Madeline and Elliot meet at a New York City restaurant opening. Flirtation—online—ensues. A romance, potentially eternal, possibly doomed, begins.
And, like most things in life today, their early exchanges are available to be scrutinized and interpreted by well-intentioned friends who are a mere click away.


If you've ever been single, you can relate to this book. If you've ever given a single friend advice, you can relate to this book. I was hooked from reading the summary that this book was written in communication form only-text & emails. I laughed out loud, a few times until I cried. I got really pissed a few times cause boys are dumb and girls (myself included) can over-analysis anything. But seriously, this is a must read! It's perfect for a day by the pool or ocean. I recommend this 5 star book to anyone who wants to know what the opposite sex is thinking while dating, cause it's all here in black & white, xo! *ps-for nook and kindle it's on sale for $1.99!

To Purchase:

Also, for those of you asking I've read 30 books out of 52 so far! My Goodreads says 29, cause I've read one that doesn't come out until fall already...hair flip emoji ;)

series | countdown to the best summer ever!

Back at it again and we're still talking skincare! This post is sponsored by Formula 10.0.6 and you can find their products at Ulta & Target! They sent me a PR package and here are the things that have been helping me get my skin in tip top shape for being outside.  

1- masks, masks, masks. I feel like the more I mask the better my skin gets. I switch between the Get Your Glow On peel off and Be Berry Fresh mud mask and sometimes I use both at the same time.

2- I've completely the masks, it's time to make sure I have no blackheads, so the 3 in 1 Three Times Sublime cleanser, scrub, mask is what I'll use a spot treatment. ps: this one smells delicious!

3- I use the One Smooth Operator scrub to make sure my face is super clean and all of the masks and treatments are completely gone. 

4- last, but certainty not least, I reach for the Picture Perfect Day daily moisturizer with 15 SPF. Which is the perfect size to throw in your bag and go! It's not sticky and doesn't clog my pores.

What's your summer skincare routine? Let me know your must haves below, xo!

*I received these products from Formula 10.0.6 and all opinions are my own.

bachelorette recap | week 4


Rose Ceremony:  Why does Lee have a knife with him? Also, have you heard about his twitter drama? He seems like handful and I don't think he'll be around for a long time. I really hate when they don't focus on Byran...well that didn't take long for my lady boner to pop up, did it? Okay, the wrestler what's his name? Willy? (sidebar: his name is Kenny!) Idk I could see him with Rachel. Oh crap, he's headed inside to met Lee. Grab some popcorn, kiddos, cause this episode is gonna get real...Ahhh, Bryan is so charming and I'm eating it all up. Sheesh, I don't even like this kinda BS that he's spitting at her and honestly, I can't even get enough. Phew. If he is the next Bachelor (no spoilers about the end, please!), I will send in my tape. I feel bad for Rachel, these guy are so high drama. I really love the ones that spend their time with her making it about her and their relationship. I'm glad she put an end to the cocktail party and got right to the roses. I really feel like this season has been producer driven in some of her picks. It really bothers me when you can tell he she isn't into the drama and BS, but then keeps those guys around...ps-I had no idea there was a guy named Diggy.

One on One: with Dean. I think that they are super cute together. I love that Dean is nervous about this blimp ride. I'm pretty stoked it's not a helicopter like every other episode. Rachel's sneaks are SO CUTE! The setup of this dinner is so magical and romantic. I would love a date like this...it looks like a fairytale. Dean has had life shit happen and that's why he's so mature. He grew up real fast. He's so into her, with all the little kisses and touches. I never remember his age and I don't think Rach really does either. He'll be around for a while.

Group date: on a boat...which prompted Bryan to lift his arms and show his abs. So I'm already in. And now his shirt is off...damnnnnnnnn. Okay, I'm gonna focus now. I love Kenny's rap. I live for a good freestyle...Peter's was funny. Those poor suckers thought they were just chilling on a boat and here they end up at a spelling bee! Eric looks PISSED. Let's see how they can hold up...waittt, Jonathan the tickle monster is a DOCTOR?!? No I need more info on this, stat! Spelling isn't for them. Why didn't we get to see Bryan spell? :( Okay on to the next part of this date...I'm looking for standouts. I think Peter and Rachel remind me of a couple that was matched up by friends cause they are a good fit. I like them together and can see it happening. To me Eric is two different guys-one type with the guys and one type with her. I don't hate it yet, but who knows what next week will bring. Josiah likes to win and that's clear with his goofy behavior after winning the spelling bee. Iggy, over him, boy bye. Lee is playing the victim there...both he and Kenny are at fault. Kenny rhymed journey and attorney...what do you got, Lee? Drunk, that's what Lee got. Ahhhh, Bry swooping in to save the day...Next week will be a doozy...wait, TWO NIGHTSSSSSS = more Bryan...yassssssss!

Yet another episode that doesn't end with a rose ceremony...I think I need to let it go cause clearly that's not he shows MO anymore. This week was pretty good and I definitely see Rachel finding a man out of this bunch...that's not my man, Bryan (in case that wasn't clear.) Let's discuss in the comments, xo!

series | countdown to the best summer ever!

Here we are week number 2 of this series and I'm excited about this topic-skincare! I'm a big believer in prepping your skin for the upcoming season. Here's the 2 things you can do in the shower (hello, my fellow lazy babes!) to get ready for dresses and shorts, well I don't really wear shorts, but you get the idea!

Okay, first up, it's time to prep your skin and that means one thing...EXFOLIATE. Honestly, I need this to be done professionally cause I have the driest skin on the planet. But the Jergens Natural Glow Color Primer makes this easy with in an in-shower scrub. It also will set you up for a streak free tan. I love the smell of this stuff and it really helps get the dead skin off-use a loofah or mesh mit for extra removal action! This is key for the next step...

Next up, start your tan in the shower as well! Jergens, the OG gradual self-tanning lotion now has Natural Glow Wet Skin Moisturizer which is an in-shower lotion! Yup, you read that right, you can start that base color right there at the end of your shower. No rinse and it comes in fair to medium, which is perfect for me cause I'm super fair. Don't ask me how it works, but it does and I'm obsessed. Being able to get out of the shower with smooth and tanner skin, what more could you ask for?

What do you do to prep your skin for the long summer days? Let me know in the comments, xo! *ps-this post isn't sponsored by Jergens I just really enjoy their products, but Jergens if you wanna spon me, shoot me an email ;)

Random Fun Facts

Hello filler post...since the NBA finals cramped my style, here's a good old filler post. But you wanted to know random things about me...right?! Well even if you didn't, here we go!

I have an obsession with dinosaurs and cartoon dinosaur movies. I have a LittleFoot and Arlo stuffie on my bed...still to this day. LittleFoot is my ride or die. 

I didn't get my driver license until I was 26. I waited a really long time, but now I actually love driving.

I sleep with my mouth open and always drool. Weird? yes. Gross? definitely. But 100% true.

I've written a novel, but I'm terrified to edit it to get ready to send it to publishers. 

 If I could trade lives with anyone, I'd love to be Barbie...she's got it all and can do anything!

See you tomorrow for the countdown to the best summer ever, xo!
