Food and Drinks

I love these when I drink water,  they just add a little flavor without having that chalky or artificial taste and it’s definitely better than soda.

the key is to stay hydrated no matter what the season is!

Random and Miscellaneous

This cleaner smells so good and its multi purpose and its better than those harsh name brand cleaners! Added bonus a little goes a long way with this cleaner, my house smells wonderful when I use this, like who doesn’t love a fresh and clean smelling house?

How is everyone doing?

Ready for the Holidays? 

I’m sorta ready for the holidays but its funny how it always seems so far away in the summer time but then fall hits and the holiday season arrives quicker than we realize. Well ready or not, it’s coming!

Let me share my favorites of the week with you!

 

What to Watch

CHIPS

chips

A rookie officer is teamed with a hardened pro at the California Highway Patrol, though the newbie soon learns his partner is really an undercover Fed investigating a heist that may involve some crooked cops. This movie is a must see if you love comedy!

Gods of Egypt

godsofegypt.jpg

Mortal hero Bek teams with the god Horus in an alliance against Set, the merciless god of darkness, who has usurped Egypt’s throne, plunging the once peaceful and prosperous empire into chaos and conflict. At first I was kind of hesitant to watch this because it could be labeled as a “guy” movie but I don’t think it is. Definitely watch this if you haven’t already.

It’s officially December!

 Have you finished Christmas shopping or are you a last-minute shopper? And if you don’t celebrate Christmas, what holiday season traditions do you have?

The weather is getting colder and colder as the days go on, so grab some hot chocolate, tea or even some water and cuddle up while I share my favorites with you!

 

What I’ve Been Watching

Banshee (Amazon Prime)

banshee

An ex-con assumes the identity of a murdered sheriff in the small town of Banshee, Pennsylvania, where he has some unfinished business. If you like action, mystery, witty banter and a little sexy feel, definitely give this show a try. I’ve watched about two seasons so far so don’t quote me on season three and four just yet. 

 

Orphan Black (Amazon Prime)

orphan

A streetwise hustler is pulled into a compelling conspiracy after witnessing the suicide of a girl who looks just like her. This show was recommended to me by a fellow blogger and she did not disappoint! The first episode is a little slow in the beginning but I was totally hooked and haven’t stopped watching since I hit play. 

 

What to Listen to on Repeat

 I added some new songs to this playlist so give it a listen. Its got some pump up songs, some killer rock, and some sentimental tunes as well. Its got something for everyone.

 

What to Read

Notorious Nineteen

What to Buy

torrid.jpg

Literally love this shirt since I bought it!

True to size and so comfy and you can dress it up or down.

Get yourself this shirt before it sells out at Torrid!

Badass Shirt

elfhighlighter.jpgI bought this since I accidentally dropped and broke my expensive Champagne Pop highlighter and saw that this affordable version was a dupe for it and thought I would give it a try, it isn’t exactly the same as Champagne Pop but it is very similar. give it a try if you are looking for an affordable highlighter that pops!

ELF Highlighter

Thanks for reading about my favorites at the moment and I hope you give some of them a try.

Have a great weekend!

HAPPY FRIDAY Y’ALL!

FRIDAYGIF.gif

 

It’s a good day so I would like to share some of my favorites with all of you! And if you can tell me the song from this blog title in the comments, we should be friends!

 

What to Binge on This Weekend

Stranger Things Season 2 (NETFLIX)

strangerthings

In my personal opinion I think the second season is equally as good as the first season  probably a little better because you now have more characters to get to know and more in-depth story lines. And if you haven’t watched this show yet, what are you waiting for? Go!

Nerve (Amazon Prime)

nerve.jpg

A high school senior finds herself immersed in an online game of truth or dare, where her every move starts to become manipulated by an anonymous community of “watchers.” I didn’t think would be that good, but it was actually pretty decent and at times very funny! 

 

BAD MOMS (Showtime App)

badmoms.gif

When three overworked and under-appreciated moms are pushed beyond their limits, they ditch their conventional responsibilities for a jolt of long overdue freedom, fun, and comedic self-indulgence. I know this has been out for a while now, but I just watched it the other night and its fricking hilarious.

 

What to Add to Your Playlists

All these songs are my favorites currently and have them on repeat, watch the videos and listen to the music. Theses songs always pump me up and gain confidence, hope they help you too!

 

What to Curl up and Read

T is for Transformation by Shaun T

I haven’t finished this book yet, but so far so good! I will give a full in-depth review when I am finished! 

shauntbook.jpg

 What to Buy

Hooded Pullover

pullover.jpg

You will literally want to live in this hooded pullover, it’s so comfy and warm but lightweight. Great for layering! Added bonus, you can work out in it! I have three and wear them constantly because I just can’t get enough!

Yes, Finally the Weekend is here and we can all CHEER!!!

I think Fridays are the best because its the day were we can finally relax after a long week and let loose a little or even reorganize and be ready for the next week ahead! 

Where we can have a glass of wine or beer maybe even three, haha! When we can all sit down or jump around with the people we love!

A drama centered on the personal and professional lives of five surgical interns and their supervisors. I’ve watched this show from the beginning, recently it hasn’t been the same but I’m giving it another chance!

The Mightiest Disciple Kenichi

kenichi.jpg

“Weak Legs” Kenichi Shirahama would rather spend his time reading self improvement books than fighting. This reminds me of a cartoon I use to watch when I was younger, it has a little bit of everything, romance, comedy and drama. Watch this if you get a chance, you won’t regret it!

The Spooky October Tag

HAPPY FRIDAY THE 13TH!

As most of you know the number 13 in general is suppose to be unlucky and many people are superstitious about it. But whether you are or not. Lets have some fun with these questions.   

I saw this fun tag on The Life with Latoya and I will be adding a few of my own questions as well.

spooky

Do you get scared easily? Most of the time, YES!

 
Have you ever played Bloody Mary? I have attempted multiple times but could never go through with it, because I am a chicken. haha.

You’re home alone, but you hear footsteps. What do you do? Start to panic a little but get something to protect myself.

ss

 

Do you prefer gore or thrillers? I definitely like both, but not too much gore.

Favorite scary movie? Scream or Texas Chainsaw Massacre.

What was your scariest Halloween costume? I dressed up as a zombie for a haunted hayride to scare people. 

If you had to spend the night in a haunted house, would you?  HELL TO THE NO!

Are you superstitious? Sometimes I am.

Creepiest thing that has ever happened to you? The house I was to live in when I was younger, I would hear keys jingling and hear someone saying my name when I was home alone.

Did these questions scare you? Not even in the slightest. 

Do you get scared or freaked out after watching a horror movie? As silly as that may sound, yes I do get somewhat freaked out.

Which do you prefer : Hayride or Haunted House? Most of the time I prefer a hayride over a haunted house but my best friend always makes me go to haunted houses with her every year.

Have you ever seen a ghost? No. Thank God.

Favorite Halloween themed movie you have to watch every year? Halloweentown.

hall.gif

When was the last time you went trick or treating? When I was in middle school.

Have a Great Weekend and let me know in the comments your answer to one of these questions. If you happen to do your own version of this, don’t forget to tag me in it.

What To Binge Watch 

 

Deadliest Catch (Hulu)

A documentary series chronicling the real-life high-sea adventures of the Alaskan crab fishermen. This is the most deadly profession in the world. This show deserves a 5/5 rating, its badass!

 

Prisoner Zero (Netflix)

prisonerzero

Teens Tag and Gem travel through space searching for their parents whilst figuring out their identities. They are befriended by Zero who takes them under his wing, protecting them from aliens, robots and the evil Imperium. I wasn’t sure what to think of this show at first, but I give it a 4/5 rating and see if you like it too.

 

Gilmore Girls (Netflix)&(DVD)

A dramedy centering around the relationship between a thirtysomething single mother and her teen daughter living in Stars Hollow, Connecticut. Literally my favorite show since forever and it only gets better every time I watch it again, 10/10! If you haven’t watched this show yet, what the hell have you been living?

 

Ax Men

Four logging crews in the Pacific Northwest battle the elements and poor market conditions in an attempt to make a living. I just started watching this show on a whim when I couldn’t find anything else to watch and come to find out it’s a pretty interesting show and if you have watched this before you know Shelby deserves his own show! Yea doggy!

What To Buy

Alba Botanica Acne Face/Body Scrub

Let me tell you something about this product, it cleared up almost all my acne on my face and body within a week , its smells nice and makes me so feel fresh and squeaky clean afterwards and I bought this on a whim whiling shopping online, I was out of my regular face wash so I decided to go ahead and try something around the same price range and easier on my face. Best online purchase so far. I got it at Walmart.com.

What to Binge Watch

Atypical (Netflix)atypical.jpg

Sam, an 18-year-old on the autism spectrum, decides it’s time to find a girlfriend, a journey that sets Sam’s mom on her own life-changing path as her son seeks more independence. I really enjoyed this show, I would definitely give it a 5/5. It has something for everyone. Watch this if you need a good laugh.

 

The Tudors (Netflix)

tudors

A dramatic series about the reign and marriages of King Henry VIII. So far I’m only on season 2, but I would give it a 4/5. It reminds me a little bit of Game of Thrones, so if you need a GOT fix you should watch this.

 

This Is Us (Hulu)

thisisus.jpg

The story of a family whose three same-aged siblings struggle in unique ways throughout their lives is chronicled in this dramedy. So I’m going to be bold and give this show 5/5. I decided to watch this show initially because it had Milo Ventimiglia from Gilmore Girls, so like DUH!

Favorite Binge Worthy Things

Welcome to the latest addition of my current obsessions!

NOW, BRING ON THE WEEKEND!

friyay

 

I’ll start with what movies and shows I’ve been loving on.

Who loves themselves a good Netflix binge, am I right? 

Raise of hands who hates this though :

netflix.jpgAnyway let’s get to what I’ve been watching.

TV Series / Movies

Yoga Hosers (Netflix)

Two teenage yoga enthusiasts team up with a legendary man-hunter to battle with an ancient evil presence that is threatening their major party plans. I would give this 4/5 just because it was unexpectedly funny. Also makes you realize how much we depend on our phones. Oh shit.

yoga.jpg

Highlander : The TV Series (Hulu)

Duncan MacLeod is Immortal, and must live in modern society, concealing his true nature while fighting other Immortals. The series isn’t as good as the movie in my opinion but it gets better once you get past the first few episodes. You’ll get the reference below once you watch the show. This show was made in the 90s, so kind of gives me that are you afraid of the dark vibe but less scary. 

The Defenders ( Netflix)

Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist team up to fight crime in New York City. I loved this series! I give this 5/5! You should definitely watch Daredevil, Jessica Jones and Iron Fist before you watch this. You can skip Luke Cage in my opinion, he’s good with other cast but not really good on his own. sorry not sorry. Go watch The Defenders! GO!

def.jpg

If you’re looking for new music to listen to or add to your playlists. Here are a few I’ve been listening to an embarrassing number of times. I know for sure I’m not the only one who loves to blare their music to the point of almost going deaf. HAHA.

MUSIC 

Foo Fighters + The Sky is a Neighborhood

This song has literally been on repeat like a billion times, I love me some foo fighters!
