My parents have always said that I should go into politics someday, so I guess its too bad that I despise it. I’m not saying I’m apolitical or that I don’t have opinions about things, because I do. I just find politics to be divisive and dirty, and there is always polarization and controversy. Among all phenomena in human relations in politics, there is one thing that bothers me to no end. I would tell you what that one thing is, but this is a fashion and popular culture blog.  I’d rather keep my discussion centered around music, movies, sports, fashion, and other pieces of our culture, so I will remain in that realm to get my point across.

I’m about to get really juvenile here, but I’m going to be 100 percent honest. When I was a kid, I was the biggest Hannah Montana/ Miley Cyrus fan. In the spring of 2009, when I was in third grade, The Hannah Montana Movie was about to come out. I remember feeling so excited for the moment in which I would finally see the movie during the week of its premiere. My mom was going to take me to see the film that Friday, so in anticipation, I was listening to all of Hannah Montana’s/Miley Cyrus’s music.

At some point, maybe  during recess or lunch or something, I was gushing about how excited I was to see the movie, and  my friends responded by insulting Cyrus’s song “The Climb” and saying that they preferred Taylor Swift or the Jonas Brothers (If this doesn’t give you an indication of what time period this situation took place in, I don’t know what will). I felt hurt by this. I felt angry with my friends for not liking her music because in my mind, how could they not? How could they prefer any other artist over Miley Cyrus? There had to be something wrong with them. It was as if, by insulting her music, they were insulting me because I enjoyed and connected to her work so much. When I was a young girl, you could describe me in three ways: sweet, innocent, and  a Hannah Montana fan. The last description is rather sad given that my identity shouldn’t have been based in what music I preferred or what I liked. Furthermore, I shouldn’t have been angry with my friends because they thought differently.

Flash-forward to my teen years when I started listening to “real” music, also known as everything outside the realm of Radio Disney. As a teen, I started to develop more valid opinions about music, and I’d like to think I became more musically savvy. One of the groups I really got into was Coldplay, and along with Nickelback, they are rock/alternative music’s and the internet’s punching bag. There are lots of stereotypes about people that listen to Coldplay. Some say Coldplay’s music is for people who “don’t like music.”  Alan McGee, a music critic I believe, once said that Coldplay makes “music for bed-wetters.” When I was riding in the car with my friend once, a Coldplay song came on, and she changed the station. When I asked why, she said she found Coldplay boring. There I was, in my feelings again. Not only was I considered a bed-wetter and a person who didn’t actually enjoy music for listening to Coldplay, but even my friend thought lowly of them.

I think we often let our music taste define us, but I don’t really know why. I mean, I do, but I don’t. Many feel insulted when their music is insulted because they find pieces of themselves in it, but on the other hand, the music isn’t you, the artist isn’t you, and you are not the music or the artist. Heck, even though my friend insulted Coldplay’s music, she wasn’t actually insulting Coldplay as people. I also don’t know why other people make judgments about others based on what they listen to. You like Lorde? Oh you must be a stuck up hipster type. You like Drake? You’re a sissy. Like rap or rock  music? You must hate authority. While there is at least a small piece of truth in every stereotype, we should never let these preconceived notions rule our thinking.






My life is probably very uninteresting to you, but I have one more narrative to share. One time my friend and I literally became angry with each other over music. This situation was so stupid, I’m almost too embarrassed to share it. Almost. Anyway, my friend was a big Lana Del Rey fan, and I didn’t like her much. I was kind of being  a jerk because I criticized Lana’s singing and image, as my friend, the biggest Lana fan, looked on.  She came back at me by insulting Coldplay, and soon we were both pretty annoyed with each other. As I walked out of class, without my friend, another girl approached me and said , “I can’t believe she doesn’t like Coldplay.” I said, “I know,” as I mentally gave this acquaintance a high five as if we were in a sisterhood of Coldplay fans or something. As it turns out, my friend heard this exchange, and she later told me that it hurt her. If you’re wondering, this petty situation blew over and we are still friends today.

Everyday I go on YouTube and I see fans fighting in the comments over who the better artist is. Demi or Selena? Prince or Michael? Drake or Kendrick? I watch as they make their cases for why they are right, as they make death threats and become physically distraught after their music taste or favorite artists is dragged.


Image result for prince or michael



My question is: why? Why can’t I like my music, and why can’t you like yours? Surely I can listen to Coldplay, and you can listen to Drake, and we can still be friends right? We can exist in harmony right? Besides, music, among many other things, should unite us. Every time I go to  a concert I am amazed at how people from all walks of life can connect through music.

We humans are always finding ways to separate ourselves and pick fandoms or sides so that we can feel more important or feel as if we belong to a group. In doing this, we become close minded to new music, ideas, or people. If I stopped being friends with everyone that had different musical taste, or stereotyped people just on the basis of what they listened to, I would have no friends at all. It is okay to like different things or different people, but it isn’t ok to be disrespectful or hateful on these grounds alone. Separate from all of my likes and dislikes, I am a (not quite) fully realized person, and so are you. Your musical taste doesn’t define you or your friends, and it shouldn’t divide you either.  Neither should your politics.

Celebrity Worship and What it Takes to be Famous

Linked above is the video to Lil Pump’s insufferable song “Gucci Gang.” If you didn’t know, the track burned up the charts last year, and now 17 year old Lil Pump has amassed a following of 9.6 million people on Instagram. If making a hot garbage rap song is all it takes to be famous or rich, well then get me into the studio right now. I’ll put on my best shower voice. This phenomenon of sub par talent finding success raises a couple of questions. If Lil Pump can make it, anyone can right?  Why do we let people become famous in the face of mediocrity? Shouldn’t people become established and (more than) competent at what they do before they gain so much clout?

I don’t know what it takes to be famous these days. I could be famous. You could be famous. We all could be famous. In this day in age, fame comes easy. All you need is either money, a pretty face, marketing potential, or some combination of everything mentioned.

Instant fame doesn’t bother me so much as the instant influence it brings. I’m bothered that people like Lil Pump, the Kardashians, and other untalented and/or average people can have so much influence over the masses. These individuals don’t tell captivating stories through film. They don’t write novels that take you to another planet. They don’t make music that inspires people. So what do they do actually, and why do people worship them? Why do people let them have influence on their lives? I will never understand.


I’ve been talking about untalented famous people, but I still have a hard time understanding why slightly above average to excellent talents are worshipped by the masses. Don’t get me wrong, there are people I admire greatly in show business, sports etc., and I’ve gone through my crazy fangirl phase where all of the celebrities that I admired seemed out of this world or almost mythical, but now that I’m older, I only see celebrities as people that act, sing, or throw a football really well. They get sick, they get divorced, they get cheated on, they get old, and they die just like the rest of us. Sometimes they are even more fragile than the public, and given current events, some of them are even worse human beings than the average person, so why do we put them on these massive pedestals?

Don’t even tell me that you would care about Beyoncé if she weren’t a singer. Don’t tell me that (insert current heartthrob) would be the hottest man in the world if he wasn’t starring in the newest blockbuster movie. If that actor or actress weren’t on TV, they would be just a guy or just a girl. People tend to forget that public figures have teams. If you had access to personal trainers, chefs, and stylists, you, being just a guy or girl, would look just as beautiful as these “perfect” celebrities.

I think it’s cool to be a fan of people or enjoy their work, and I think it’s great when artists or athletes inspire/impact people in a positive way, but I will never understand the worship or the barfights that ensue when ones favorite celebrity is insulted or what not. I will never understand why Kylie Jenner having a baby was such huge news when millions of women have babies every day, and I will never understand why people blindly follow celebrities that don’t even know they exist. I do think a lot of famous people care about their fans, but I think many others only care about your money and their relevancy. Most also care about their privacy, which is something that the media and crazy “fans” refuse to give them, but the treatment of celebrities by the media and the public is for another blog post…



We over romanticize a lot of things, and I get it, as it’s a part of who we are. We think every thing is greener on the other side. We look for people to lead us and to influence us.

When I was a kid, I always wanted to go to Universal Studios because I saw it advertised on TV(so it suddenly became “more important” somehow),and it looked like the most magical place in the world. I went a couple of years ago, and it was fun, but it’s also just another theme park(although, the quality is very nice, but you get my point). I imagine meeting a celebrity would be the same. It would be cool to meet that individual, but he/she is  also just another person.

I think it’s time we start evaluating who gets to become famous because at the end of the day the power is in the hands of the public. We make people relevant and we can also make people irrelevant very quickly. More importantly, I think it’s time we see celebrities as our (very rich, influential, and [sometimes] talented) equals because they all go through the same stuff we go through. I think most of them would prefer it if we saw them that way too.

Be a fan and not a cult-like follower. Take away influence from people that your next door neighbor can sing better than.

Gosh, the path to fame and celebrity worship scares me sometimes. Sorry for the rant.

Black Friday(Thursday) and America’s Greed

I’m thankful for a lot of things. My family, my friends, God, and the resources at my dispense are some to name a few. I’m also thankful that I have a job( with the exception of yesterday haha). I decided to get a job for experience, but it was primarily for money. One could say I don’t truly need a job, as my parents provide me with the necessities and more. One could say I was being greedy,kind of like how people are on Black Friday-I mean Thursday, Black Thursday.

I’m thankful I got to eat a short Thanksgiving dinner with my family before heading out into the trenches and endless messes of consumer America. Some people I work with didn’t even get that, voicing to me that they would be eating alone that night.

I understand the importance Black Friday holds for retailers. It’s everything to them. When companies think of Black Friday, they see money bags. As time has progressed however, money bags on Friday just hasn’t been enough. They just had to make even more money on Thursday, Thanksgiving Day, a day that should be designated for family and giving thanks. Being open for Thanksgiving Day, negates everything that the holiday should be. Instead of taking one day to say thank you, thank you, thank you, companies are saying more,more,more and consume, consume, consume. It’s maddening. What’s most sad, is that the people calling all of the shots at the top, are most likely spending Thanksgiving the way it’s supposed to be spent, while their workers slave away for long hours.

The people are not blameless. They are actually a major part of the problem. Without their zeal and fervor to spend money on stuff that they don’t need, (at late hours of the night)perhaps their would be no reason to open up doors on Thanskgiving Day. As I pulled into work yesterday, I was shocked to see the parking lot completely full. When I actually made it inside of the store people were everywhere, clogging the aisles, like food clogs arteries. I wondered why they were out shopping instead of having dinner with their families. Or maybe they inhaled their plates fast, so that they could exhale all of the money from their bank accounts sooner. It made no sense to me. Business is good, but I also prayed to myself that they would all go home where they should be.I got a lot of pity from customers. ” You poor thing,” they would say,” I’m sorry you have to work Thanksgiving.” They meant well, but their apology seemed a little disingenuous considering they were the reason I was working at all. Their money talks, and the corporations heard. As I left work late last night, the store was still full…

America is so greedy in a lot of ways. How many TVs or pairs of boots can one own before they are satisfied? Apparently not enough. In a year, or maybe even less, the stuff that people purchase will hold little to no value to them. Family on the other hand, is what is truly fulfilling.

Let’s stop being greedy. Let’s take one day to stop and reflect, and then we can go crazy on Black Friday every year. “Black Thursday” doesn’t even have the same ring to it…

Always be thankful, and be kind to retail workers this holiday season.

Celebrities AREN’T Role Models

When I was a little kid, I was the biggest Hannah Montana/Miley Cyrus fan there was. I had every album, posters were plastered across my room, and I had every bit of merch you could imagine. There are still remnants of my Hannah Montana days in the form of a blanket and a lamp.

As a Disney Channel star, Cyrus made sure to maintain a squeaky clean image, and she gave the public the impression that her life was based off of wholesome, Christian values.

Image result for miley cyrus 2007

Circa 2009, Cyrus’s image began to change. A controversial performance  of “Party in the USA” at the Teen Choice awards that summer featured Cyrus in daisy dukes dancing around a pole. She was 17, and the public had no idea that the worst was yet to come for the child star .  In the days following her risque performance, I began to hear a lot of whispers from parents. Statements along the lines of “Oh my gosh! What a horrible role model!” and “Wow, she is setting such a bad example for our kids!” were repeated frequently.

Image result for miley cyrus 2009 teen choice awards

When Miley Cyrus began to make her change, I was just as perplexed as all of the parents. There I was, 9/10 years old, and my favorite singer who initially sang  about “true friends” and “the best of both worlds” was now pole dancing and telling the world that she “could not be tamed.”

Image result for miley cyrus can't be tamed

When 2012 rolled around, Miley went full on “adult” mode. She got  a new haircut, she sported several new tattoos, and she was  a friend to foul language. Then, 2013 rolled around. First, “We Can’t Stop” happened. Then, her infamous VMA performance broke the internet. And finally,  the video for “Wrecking Ball” dropped jaws and became etched into our memories forever. By 2013, I was shocked and maybe a little disappointed by Cyrus’s actions, but I wasn’t wounded. I had moved out of my Hannah Montana phase, and by then, I had become desensitized to her crazy antics.

Image result for miley cyrus vma 2013

Following her wild 2013, there was still talk about how Cyrus was a bad role model for kids, and all I have to say to that is that she was never a role model. I’m not saying she was never a role model because of her behavior. I’m saying she was/is not a role model because that is not what she signed up for.

Celebrities aren’t role models. None of them.

At some point in time, our society equated being famous to suddenly being a figure that shows the world how they should live their lives. I think that is ridiculous.

We get so emotionally attached to celebrities when in reality they only provide us with a product and that’s it. Entertainment, music, books, comedy-they are all products. Outside of making music, Justin Bieber should not have any other role in a person’s life because he has already done his job of providing the public with entertainment. The same goes for athletes. They are not paid to be upstanding citizens. They are paid to play football, basketball, etc.

Furthermore, I know Miley Cyrus or Justin Bieber about as well as I know the person giving me food at a Chick-fil-A drive thru, but I don’t look to my food server to show me how I should live my life. They give me my product and I move on with my day.

I understand that celebrities have a wide sphere of influence. Little boys want to be just like Steph Curry, or teen girls dream of looking like Taylor Swift. Beyonce is worshiped for crying out loud. I get it. Celebrities have impact, but would they have so much impact if we didn’t expect them to be role models?

There’s a reason why so many ex-Disney stars resent the network that made them famous ; they were expected to be role models because they catered to kids. A few years ago, Joe Jonas completely bashed the Disney network, and while he did come off as ungrateful (I mean Disney gave he and his brothers a platform, propelling them to international fame…), I did understand to an extent why he was angry. The network puts too much pressure on their stars.

Rihanna, the good girl gone bad, was never expected to be a role model. She made it known early on that she is an adult entertainer. The same goes for Eminem or Kendrick Lamar. They were never considered role models either.  It’s all about the kids. If you never cater to kids, you never have to be a role model, but I still think the pressure on those celebrities that  do cater to the youth is unfair. After all, so many people on Disney  and other children’s networks aren’t actually teenagers, so why should we expect  twenty-somethings to act squeaky clean as if they aren’t adults?

Role models should be people that are actually in your life. Parents, friends, teachers, siblings coaches, mentors-those are all people that should truly be role models. It’s crazy that parents expect Miley Cyrus to be a role model for their kids when they should be  a role model for their kids, and if they don’t like what a celebrity is all about, then they should remove their child’s access to that individual. My parents did that a lot in my youth. It wasn’t fun, but now I know not to blindly follow celebrities.

I look towards the people in my life to set examples for me, and I let celebrities inspire me and nothing more. For example, I’m a big fan of Lorde. I love her music, and I can really relate to it, but she parties a lot, and she has different views than I do on certain issues. I’m not a fan of partying and I don’t always agree with her opinions, but I love Lorde’s product aka her music. I’m not looking for Lorde to teach me how to live, and I don’t think anyone should put that much pressure on a person.

Image result for lorde 2017

Over the years, it has become more and more clear to me that people mess up! They are always going to mess up, they are always going to be brought back down to earth from their pedestal that we put them on, and they will disappoint us in some way. No human is perfect, so why should we expect celebrities to be? Especially teenage ones. If normal teenagers struggle with identity crisis, sex, and drug abuse, why wouldn’t a celebrity?

I’m not expected to be a role model, although I try my best to be of good moral standing, but if that role were assigned to me, I would probably feel the pressure. I could virtually never mess up, never fail a test, never procrastinate, and never make any mistakes. That’s way too much to put on a person. Thank God I’m not famous.

Pokemon Go 

Hey everyone, and happy Saturday! I won’t lie to any of you;  I’ve had a little case of writer’s block. I try to write once a week, but as the weekend arrived I had no idea what I was going to write about. Eventually,  everything worked out in my favor because all of my news feeds across various social media platforms started to be filled with the subject of Pokemon Go. It’s a Pokemon game that seems to be getting a lot of attention and generating a lot of memes. Of course I had to get to the bottom of this game craze because I’ve been seeing it everywhere. If a game can get so popular shortly after its release it must be great right? Just for some background,  I used to watch one of the Pokemon shows that were on back in the day. I know there are several versions of the show, and probably some recent versions too, but I watched one of them. (Pokemon Gotta Catch ‘Em All anybody?) I also used to have the trading cards wayyyy back when. It was more something my older brother was into, but I can definitely recall a time when I was trading Pikachus and Charizards on the bus. Of course that is deep in my past, and even then I was probably into it for a month or so. You’d think Pokemon is for younger kids or preteens, but not Pokemon Go; everyone from all age groups is playing it. I have no games on my phone; it just isn’t something I do to pass the time. However, today I downloaded Pokemon Go, and it surprised me.

So,here I am waiting in anticipation for this game to download. I hadn’t done any previous research on the game. I just relied on my observations. I did hear that people like to play it outside, which was weird. Why play a video game outside? It finally downloaded and I signed up. The app lets the user pick their character and then customize them.

Okay, so my character was all ready to go. There’s a guide that talks to you as an introduction, and then he sends you off to catch your first Pokemon.  After many failed attempts, I finally caught Squirtle. Isn’t he a doll?

Here’s the thing about catching Pokemon though. You can catch them in “real life”. All this means is your camera from your phone shows your surroundings (obviously) and then the game places a Pokemon in the real world. Fun stuff. After capturing your first Pokemon the guide sends you on your way to go catch some more-literally. The game said you need to get up and walk around for your character to move, so I started walking around the house. My character wasn’t moving though. I mean she was moving but it looked like she was in a small square that I soon realized was the house. There were other squares of different sizes around so that symbolized the other houses, and there was a road. Pokemon Go isn’t played outside necessarily for fun; the game makes you go outside. Hence the “Go” in Pokemon Go. In order to catch your Pokemon, you have to move, so I made my way out the door, and then my character began to move. The game said access to location was crucial to play, and I didn’t think anything of it. Most apps want to know you’re location, but Pokemon Go uses it as a GPS, placing Pokemon in random places near you.

It was unexpected for me to go outside. I’ll tell you that. The game placed a Pokemon near a seven eleven on the highway, and quite frankly I didn’t want to walk that far. It was 90 degrees, and how dumb would I look showing up in a seven eleven looking for a Pokemon. Talk about interactive gaming.

I can appreciate what the makers of  Pokemon were trying to do. They’re getting people outside and off their couch to go adventure. That’s pretty cool. My issue is that the game will take you literally wherever it wants. I read that a woman in Wyoming found a dead body playing Pokemon Go. That was most likely coincidental, but I’m sure it could take you to sketchy places. The game warns users to be “alert at all times and be aware of your surroundings”. No kidding.  Another alternative to walking would be driving to find your Pokemon, but that would defeat the purpose of exercise and would use up gas.  Not to mention how dangerous that would be. I guess that depends on your level of boredom and commitment to the game though. I’ve also read that the game  has brought more customers to businesses and that’s alway’s great. There are pros and cons.  Maybe one day when I’m super bored and I have a buddy  I’ll try it out again, but catching Pokemon just isn’t that important to me. Exercise is important, but there are other means of getting exercise. I’m not here to hate on Pokemon Go. I think it’s a cool concept, but it has its risks.  The scenarios and award situations it could lead to make me laugh, and it’s a good way to connect with people. If only the server would connect…..

Pokemon Go is a new idea and a popular craze. Enjoy it while it lasts!

Met Gala 2016

Hey everyone! I’m writing to you on a Tuesday which is quite uncharacteristic for me. However, yesterday was a special event in the fashion world, so I wanted to stay as up to date as possible! In the world of fashion, the first Monday in May is pretty much a national holiday. Last night the annual Met Gala, or Met Ball as some call it, took place in New York City. The Met Gala has been around for some time. It acts as a fundraiser for the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and specifically funds its fashion exhibit. The Met is extremely exclusive, so unless you’re  a model, actress, designer, singer, or anything of the sort, you aren’t invited. I have always  enjoyed the Met Gala because it is such a great showcase of fashion, and I love seeing my favorite celebrities bring their A-game! Every year there is a theme. Last year it was China: Through the Looking Glass, so everyone showed up in Chinese/ Asian inspired pieces. To get an idea, this is what Rihanna wore last year. She stole the show and generated a lot of egg memes. You know that one Coldplay song? Yeah, it was all about her dress. Jokes aside, I had much love for her look because it was so spontaneous.


Josh Haner/ The New York Times via The New York Times

This year the theme was “Manus x Machina: Fashion In An Age of Technology”. Pretty much everyone showed up in their most robotic  and futuristic outfits. This year I thought the Met was a little lackluster, and maybe it was because of the theme. Who knows? I wanted to make a top 10 for who I thought was best dressed, but I didn’t like enough of the ensembles to be completely honest. I won’t do a worst dressed list though because this blog isn’t about negativity. So instead, I have compiled for you my top 4 favorite Met Gala 2016 looks ( I couldn’t even find 5 showstoppers :/)

4. Claire Danes in Zac Posen

Now, Claire Danes’s Cinderellaesque dress may seem like nothing special, but it made my list for one particular reason. Zac Posen crafted a very unique dress that shows its uniqueness in the dark. Check this out.

Her dress literally lights up, creating the best of Cinderella effects. Talk about “Fashion in An Age of Technology”!

3. Emma Watson in Calvin Klein

Emma Watson stays classy. Not only does she totally own dresses, but she also works pantsuits like no other. In this particular look she manages to do both.

Emma Watson didn’t just look good, she was saving the world too. Her dress was made entirely of recycled materials!

Ok, this was one of my favorite looks of the night, hands down. I love Chanel and I think Kristen Stewart really rocks this dress because it’s so fitting for her personality.

Seriously, everything is on point. This is why she is one of my style inspirations.

And her  hair and makeup is nothing short of perfect.It’s so high fashion. She was able to incorporate the theme without looking too themed. Also, I think Blonde Stew works!

1.Blake Lively in Burberry

Blake Lively never looks short of perfect. She could wear trash and still look gorgeous.

She didn’t really dress to the theme, but who cares when you’re Blake Lively! Honestly, I think looking good is more important than being themed, but that’s just me.

Look at her, looking all perfect and stuff. I’m sure Serena would approve.


Thanks to everyone who reads my blog. I appreciate you all so much!

Have a great rest of your week!

Hipster For a Day


Hey everyone! Happy Saturday! It has been a weird week, but it has all winded down. Last weekend, I made fun of Coachella and its fashion, and my thoughts about it still remain the same. However, I think some of the fashion is actually really pretty, and thought it would be fun to play dress up for a day in honor of Coachella’s second weekend happening right now. It’s always nice to have fun with fashion, and respect it no matter how basic, hipster, or ridiculous it is because people can wear whatever they want. To be honest it’s more the motives, unoriginal tendencies, and ideas behind the fashion  that tick me off, but I already explained that last week, so I’ll stop ranting. At the end of the day, all fashion is great, beautiful, and creative,so just for today I will treat Coachella’s fashion as such ( because some of it really is).

I brought my friend Caitlin along as a special guest because I feel like Coachella is a group kind of event that is best enjoyed with friends. I figured what better way to emulate Coachella vibes than to bring my own friend along. We even made flower crowns.




Are we hipster yet?


We have no idea who this band is, but at least we look cute.



If you didn’t Instagram a pic at Coachella, did you really go?

It was a nice day out, so this was really fun to shoot! If you love Coachella, once again, my apologies. This is simply my opinion, and my critique of it is all in good fun. I hope you enjoyed this post of me embracing Coachella fashion, as well as me kinda-sorta (totally) making fun of it. P.S. this is the last time I will ever be spotted in a flower crown, so enjoy it while you can.

I hope you have a wonderful rest of your weekend!

Embrace your inner flower child,
