honeymoon tour

Hello, strangers!

It’s been ages since I’ve posted in this blog, but like I’ve said in a few previous posts, I have some writing projects that have been taking up a lot of my time and I haven’t had time to post anything on here. Hopefully, I can update you guys really soon, maybe in the next month or so.

My blog was calling my name and I wanted to tell you guys about the Ariana Grande concert I went to a few weeks ago. If you’ve been reading for a while, you know that I LOVE Ariana Grande. I just adore her voice, it’s strong and confident. She’s definitely my favorite pop artist right now.

She brought her Honeymoon Tour to Charlotte, NC and we took a day trip, on a Tuesday, to see her perform. I was worried about seating but we ended up being closer than I thought we would be.

I’m glad to report that her voice did not disappointed. She sounded exactly like the record, hitting all the notes and even adding a few extra rifts and runs here and there. I’ve always said that some of Ariana’s singles don’t really showcase how strong her voice is, but she really gave it her all in each performance. We decided to join in on the ‘Arianator’ fun by buying some of Ariana’s signature cat ears.

Her tour was definitely centered around vintage Hollywood Glamour. She had more than a few scenes were she was primping in front of a vanity.

My favorite performances of the night were Bang Bang, Tattooed Heart and My Everything. I really hope she puts this concert on the DVD, because I loved all of the in-between videos and sketches.

If she’s coming to your city and your even a little bit interested in her music, you should check it out. Live entertainment is my favorite pastime, whether it’s a concert or a festival. It’s something about seeing your favorite artist bringing your favorite song to life! Have you been to any concerts lately, or are you anticipating an upcoming one? Let me know in the comments!

yogurt yogurt

I work from home a lot, and usually that means getting up, getting mentally/spiritually ready for the day, pouring a cup of coffee and getting straight on the computer. Sounds good enough, but there’s one important thing missing from this equation.. breakfast!

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day and most of the time, I honestly forget to eat it. I’m not usually in the mainframe to cook breakfast in the morning and would probably be more inclined to eat it if it was something tasty, but quick. Well, I found that perfect thing!

Liberte Yogurt is SO good, you guys. You can get it at any Publix Grocery store and it’s only a $1 a cup. My two favorites are the Liberte Caramel and the Liberte Mediterranee appuccino flavors. I love mixing in the regular ingredients like granola and fruit, but one random thing I really like to mix in my yogurt is…. honey! Especially with a cappuccino flavored yogurt, it really makes it tastes just like coffee!

I know some of y’all would love a grab and go breakfast just like this, so I’m giving a way $15 on Paypal to buy this coffee for yourself! The Publix I went to was selling this yogurt 10 for $10, so this is really a steal!

In the meantime, I’m also giving away some coupons  for this yogurt as well. Make sure you grab a couple and tell your friends!

Don’t forget to enter below and tell me what’s your favorite quick and easy breakfast treat!

I’ve been raving about one song in particular this week (for no reason other than the fact that it’s well written and I love the video!)

Why don’t you love me by Beyonce’: I’ve always loved this song and felt like it’s never gotten as much recognition as it deserves. I love the lyrics, the video, and it’s SOOO good when she sings it live! I was so glad to see her perform it at the Mrs. Carter Tour because it was incredible.

The video has this vintage-y vibe and the song reminds me something that would be sung in a musical (think Dreamgirls). It’s so interesting to see Beyonce, one of the greatest living performers, so vulnerable and concerned with why someone doesn’t love her; basically asking: “Why don’t you love me? I’m smart, beautiful… I’m Beyonce!” Her sister Solange helped her write this song, too. Ever since I watched the On the Run Tour on HBO that song has been in my head again and I’ve been playing it nonstop.

If you haven’t heard this song, listen to it above and let me know what you think!

Have a great weekend, everyone!

Happy Friday, readers!

This week had tons of fall premieres and I’m talking about my favorite ones, all of which are ABC shows!

Black-ish: Black-ish premiered on Wednesday night at 7:30pm on ABC. The show is about an African-American family that lives in a suburban area. The dad is struggling to keep the family in touch with their culture as he goes up the corporate ladder. He has a serious of crazy schemes to keep himself from becoming a “sell-out” at work and to ensure that the children stay “black”, not “blackish”. In short, the show was HILARIOUS. It’s been a long time that I’ve seen a sitcom on network television that I could actually relate to! I advise anyone to watch it, at least the first episode and see how you like it! Plus, it comes on right after my other two favorite sitcoms, The Middle and The Goldbergs.

martinWhy has it been over 20 years and I am STILL obsessed with Martin’s sitcom?!

Seriously. That show is unmatched. It is a classic.

I’m not alone in this one, I’m sure. Most of my family’s rhetoric and comedic gestures come from this show. We pretty much walk around and quote random Martin one-liners and will most likely pop in a Martin DVD instead of a movie on any given holiday. Yeah, it’s like that.martin_complete_first_season
