Now Playing: Spotify Wrapped 2019

Happy Friday ya’ll!

If you’re an avid Spotify user like I am, you know that the end-of-the-year music round-up has been released and I must say that I’m not surprised with the results.

I’ve been sharing my results all over my socials, but I figured, why not share on my blog too!?

Top Artists

bfbb1037-dce4-49da-9a74-c21b56fe9d6c

 

  1. BLACKPINK – I became a fan in May 2019 and a stan July 2019. I didn’t know much about BP prior to their Coachella performance, but one day I was scrolling through Twitter and then I fell down the rabbit hole. From May to about September they were all I listened to. According to Spotify, I listened to them for a total of 292 hours. That doesn’t include YT streams or Apple Music. Mind you, I never obsessed about KPOP before them.
  2. Ariana Grande – We all know I love Ariana Grande. How can you not? Last year’s “Sweetener” was an amazing album with “God is a woman” and my personal faves, “everytime” and “breathin.”  Then her surprise drop of “thank u, next” had some memorable tracks. Both “7 Rings” and “thank u, next” were iconic. Now, I’m hoping for the AriPink collab to happen soon!
  3.  JENNIE (BLACKPINK) – She literally has one song and I guess I streamed it so many times, but I ain’t mad at this result. “SOLO” was released last year and it’s been doing so well in the charts as a solo KPOP artist. Jennie Kim is my bias and I’m pretty sure I’ll love her forever. One day I hope to see here “SOLO” stage live.
  4. Taylor Swift – I’ve been a fan of Taylor’s since her debut in country pop. But to be honest, I haven’t really enjoyed her past few albums. Then she came out with her “Lover” album and I felt like I was listening to the old Taylor that I loved. “Daylight” was the one song that I had on repeat this year.
  5. Alex Aiono – He’s one of my favorite YouTube artists of this decade. I remember the first video of his that I fell in love with, “One Dance/Hasta El Amanecer”. When he started to sing in Spanish, I literally fell in love and followed him since. Alex released some heartbreaking tracks this year and while I love them, I wonder who broke his heart.

 

World Citizen

c153be30-9d2d-46f6-8489-0222021de78d

According to Spotify, I’ve listened to artists from 32 different countries!

  1. BLACKPINK (South Korea)
  2. Ariana Grande (US)
  3. Shawn Mendes (Canada)
  4. Sam Smith (UK)
  5. NIKI (Indonesia)

I’m a bit bummed that artists from the Philippines didn’t make my top list since OPM is one of my top genres.

Top Songs of 2019

I’m not surprised with my top songs because most of them are by BLACKPINK. They only have about 13 recorded songs since their debut in 2016, and that is not including remixes and Japanese versions! But of course Ariana Grande made my top 5 with “7 rings” and “Hot Girl Summer” rounded out the top 10.

bed748a8-654c-4138-a618-c5f428f3a437

  1. Kill This Love (BLACKPINK)
  2. STAY – Japanese Version (BLACKPINK)
  3. Really (BLACKPINK)
  4. SOLO (JENNIE)
  5. 7 rings (Ariana Grande)
  6. More Than That (Lauren Jauregui)
  7. STAY (BLACKPINK)
  8. Kiss and Make Up (Dua Lipa feat. BLACKPINK)
  9. SO HOT (BLACKPINK)
  10. Hot Girl Summer (Megan Thee Stallion feat. Nicki Minaj and Ty Dolla $ign)

Feel free to follow my playlist here to see what else made my Top Songs of 2019!

Now Watching: Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists “Sex, Lies and Alibis” (1×2) |A recap

The episode began right where last week ended, at the crime scene. Among the crowd, Ava was devastated at the sight of her (ex) boyfriend. Her two fake friends, Dylan and Caitlin, tried to approach her, but she wanted nothing to do with them. Nolan’s demise hit every detail of Caitlin’s vision, so I understand Ava.

Three days later, we find Ava sulking, Dylan having nightmares, and Caitlin on a diet. However, both Caitlin and Dylan have significant others to lean on, while Ava doesn’t seem to have anyone, but a bottle of jack.

Ali is on a mission to figure out who left that  message on her wall. Her repair call is cut short when she receives a message from Nolan to meet him on the roof of Thorne hall. Clearly, someone is trying to frame her/freak her out – unless the dead can text now.

Ali teams up with Mona to figure out what happened. Mona is in “beautiful mind” mode as she tries to figure out who snapped – something about allowing Nolan to go to BHU even though his profile didn’t meet her algorithms and had red flags. Ali slaps the equation out of Mona and everything becomes about key lime pie. Mona is creeping me out, but I love how she calls Ali out to quit trying to be something she isn’t.

Dylan and Caitlin think it’s finally time to confront Ava and convince her that they had nothing to do with Nolan’s murder. Ava is hesitant, but she plays along for Nolan’s funeral. They’re the perfect posse grieving their fearless leader. Also, it was quite a fashionable funeral.

A new character comes into play, Nolan’s childhood best friend and Caitlin’s ex, Mason. Mason reminisces about the past and then offers to be an alibi for Caitlin. This comes out of nowhere! While the two converse, Dylan tries to find Nolan’s stash of secrets, but only meets a letter. Someone beat him and his newfound friends to it.

The three perfectionists show up to Nolan’s vigil and talk like no one’s listening. Someone chimes in, “It’s just like how you imagined it.” If I learned one thing from PLL, it’s that you can’t trust anyone as there are eyes and ears everywhere.

As Alison prepares to return to school, an unexpected visitor shows up at her home – Claire Hotchkiss. After losing her son, she felt like being close to her daughter by breaking into her old home. Claire reveals how close Taylor and Nolan were and even gives Ali some advice,”You’re a survivor Alison, at all costs. That’s what you need to teach them.” Claire definitely knows more than she’s letting on.

After Mona’s breakdown and change in personality throughout the episode, we get to see her open up, or at least try to. PLL fans would probably enjoy the 2nd to last scene because we see Mona call Hanna and reveal that Haleb has a baby. But that’s not the only bombshell – Spoby eloped. My heart soared!

In the last scene, it’s the first day back to school and the investigation continues. Ava seems to break down her walls to let Dylan and Caitlin in, but things go south when the three are pulled from class by the new head of security, Dana Booker. She asks where they were the night of Nolan’s murder and Ali saves the day. Security was turned off around her home that night so she had the perfect alibi. I guess you can say she’s still a pretty little liar. “Bring it on, bitch.”

TLDR: Someone really had it out for Nolan and his perfect posse. Dylan and Caitlin start becoming real friends, while Ava has trust issues. Ali lies to save her and her students, while Mona likes key lime pie and equations.

Leave me your thoughts in the comments or at any of my socials!

Looks I Love: 2019 Grammys

Award season continued tonight, but this time it was the musician’s time to shine at the 61st Annual Grammy Awards. Here are my fave looks of the night!

Bebe Rexha

Nominated for two Grammys tonight, including Best New Artist, Bebe Rexha stepped out in a red Monsoori gown. The gown was mostly tulle and looked super fun to flaunt around the red carpet. | Photo Source: Getty Images via Zimbio |

Miley Cyrus

Miley Cyrus walked the red carpet in a black, over sized pre-fall 2019 Mugler suit. She looked like the chic rock star that she is. Later on in the night, she joined Shawn Mendes’ performance for “In My Blood” and paid tribute to Dolly Parton – she killed both performances. | Photo Source: Getty Images via Zimbio |

Maren Morris

One of today’s biggest country stars, Maren Morris walked the red carpet in a sheer floral gown by Galia Lahav. Not only was “The Middle” singer nominated for 5 awards, but she also got the chance to perform alongside the legendary Dolly Parton. | Photo Source: Getty Images via Zimbio |

Dua Lipa

Dua Lipa sparkled in a silver, mermaid-style Versace number, featuring a long train. She was all smiles on the red carpet after receiving the news that she won the award for Best Dance Recording for “Electricity”. However, I bet she was even more ecstatic after receiving the award for Best New Artist. | Photo Source: Getty Images via Zimbio |

Let me know which looks and performances you loved from the 2019 Grammys!

Looks I Love: 2019 SAG Awards

On Sunday, January 27th, Hollywood’s biggest actors stepped out to celebrate themselves as well as their peers at the 25th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards presented by SAG-AFTRA. The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel won big in the realm of television, while the Black Panther cast made history taking home the award for Best Ensemble in a Motion Picture.

Normally, I have many favorites, however only a few caught my eyes:

Aja Naomi King

The How To Get Away With Murder Star walked the red carpet in a yellow Ralph & Russo gown. I loved the overall cut of the gown, especially the off the shoulder sleeves. She looked absolutely regal with the way she composed herself. I felt a lot of modern day Belle vibes. | Photo Source: Getty Images via Zimbio |

Emma Stone

This year, Emma Stone changed it up at the SAG Awards with a two-piece ensemble by Louis Vuitton. She shined in a gold, one-sleeve top paired with some black, high-waisted pants. Stone was nominated for two awards that night, including a nomination for her performance in The Favourite. | Photo Source: Getty Images via Zimbio |

Gemma Chan

Gemma Chan has proved to be a crazy gorgeous Asian during this award season. She walked the red carpet in a pink custom Oscar De La Renta piece. It featured a ruffled skirt that almost resembled feathers. A black belt held the piece together with a simple bow flowing through the train. She is the epitome of class and poise. I should write a Gemma Chan appreciation post already. | Photo Source: Getty Images via Zimbio |

Henry Golding

Henry Golding lived up to his last name in a gold Tom Ford suit. He decided to forego the traditional black and white suit and chose to go with a gold blazer. As he walked the red carpet with his Crazy Rich Asians co-stars, he was all smiles and handsome as ever. He is proving to be one of the most fashionable men in Hollywood. | Photo Source: Getty Images via Zimbio |

Harry Shum Jr.

Harry Shum Jr. was named Ambassador for the 25th SAG Awards and he did it in style. He walked the red carpet alongside his wife, Shelby Rabara, and presented a few awards during the pre-show. He was styled in an Armani tuxedo, with a custom Anto shirt. It’s always so fun watching Harry get ready through social media. Also, him and Shelby are #relationshipgoals | Photo Source: Getty Images via Zimbio |

Who were some of your favorites? Be sure to leave a comment and let me know.

I’ll see you again for the Grammys and the Oscars!

Looks I Love: 2019 Golden Globes

Tonight, the Golden Globes kicks off the 2019 red carpet season. So many of 2018’s biggest stars stepped out to represent their work and for many it was their first time. Soft colors seemed to be popular throughout the night and were among my favorites!

Kiki Layne

The If Beale Street Could Talk star made her red carpet debut in a custom blush pink Dior Haute Couture gown. The tulle, off-the-shoulder dress featured a corset type top which I absolutely adored. | Photo Source: Getty Images via Zimbio |

Regina King

Regina King accepted the award for Best Supporting Actress in a Motion Picture for her role in If Beale Street Could Talk. And she did it in absolute style. She wore a strapless, rose pink gown by Alberta Ferreti and shined in sequins. | Photo Source: Getty Images via Zimbio |

Taraji P. Henson

Is there a time where Taraji doesn’t slay the red carpet? She rocked the red carpet in a low-cut, emerald green Vera Wang gown. The cinched belt showed off her figure, the jewels sparkled, and the hair and make-up was as fierce as she was. | Photo Source: Getty Images via Zimbio |

Emma Stone

Emma is forever a favorite. Nominated for Best Supporting Actress for her role in The Favourite, she stepped out in a soft pink Louis Vuitton gown. The dress featured some elaborate embroidery and as always, she looked like a classic Hollywood actress. | Photo Source: Getty Images via Zimbio |

Constance Wu

This was such a big night for the Crazy Rich Asians star and Best Actress Nominee. As the first Asian actress to be nominated in the category after 50+ years, she stepped out looking gorgeous in a nude Vera Wang dress. She was one of the many stars who rocked tulle and I loved the little hint of color with the orange belt.| Photo Source: Getty Images via Zimbio |

Gemma Chan

In 2018, Gemma Chan became one of my new favorite fashion icons. She stepped out in a petrol blue Maison Valentino Couture dress. She exuded grace and elegance just like her Crazy Rich Asians character, Astrid Leung. Her look was my favorite of the night.| Photo Source: Getty Images via Zimbio |

Kristen Bell

The Good Place star looked like a classic Hollywood star in a low-cut, blush pink dress by Zuhair Murad.  Her and her husband, Dax Shepard, served some looks together. But my absolute favorite was just watching Kristen get ready through her IG. She’s such a relatable nerd.| Photo Source: Getty Images via Zimbio |

Kaley Cuoco

The Big Bang Theory star strolled the red carpet with her husband, Karl Cook. The cobalt blue and white dress by Monique L’Huillier also featured pockets which is woman’s absolute dream when it comes to formal wear.| Photo Source: Getty Images via Zimbio |

Lady Gaga

Lady Gaga looked like she was channeling Cinderella in a baby blue gown by Valentino. The train appeared to be at least 4-ft long, so she definitely had to have a lot of assistance down the red carpet. Joined by her A Star Is Born co-star Bradley Cooper, she presented the first award of the night.| Photo Source: Getty Images via Zimbio |

Danai Gurira

This dress was absolute fire – literally. The custom Rodarte gown was inspired by Zimbabwe’s national flower, the Flame Lily. She joined her Black Panther cast mates as they celebrated their Best Motion Picture nomination.| Photo Source: Getty Images via Zimbio |

Best Dressed Men

Justin Hartley is known for his role on This Is Us, but i’m over here admiring the former Green Arrow in a black and white Brunello Cucinelli suit.

Richard Madden won Best Performance by an Actor in a Drama series. And my heart melted for Rob Stark/Prince Charming in his Dior suit.

Michael B. Jordan rocked a custom Burberry suit and he never fails in a suit.r23s v

Timothee Chalamet was an absolute cutie in Louis Vuitton. He rocked that bedazzled harness!

Manny Jacinto had to be included in my list because his character on The Good Place is a homie and he cleans up very well in a Boss suit.

Who were your faves of the night?

Looks I Love: 2018 People’s Choice Awards

The People’s Choice Awards is one of my favorite award shows because it’s catered to the fans. It covers everything from movies, television, music, and fashion. It might be a little different this year due to E!’s takeover, but one thing that remains the same is the celebrities slaying the red carpet.

Camila Mendes

The Riverdale star walked the red carpet in a white, strapless dress. The Etro dress featured some floral detail, but my favorite part about it is the yellow lining and little block of yellow folded over. Tonight, Camila was nominated for Female TV Star of 2018 for her role in Riverdale. |Photo Source: Zimbio|

Sabrina Carpenter

She was definitely one of my faves of the night rocking a pinstripe suit by Tom Ford like a boss. She walked the red carpet and presented with such confidence. The young singer/actress just released her 3rd album, “Singular Act”, which you can stream on Spotify or purchase exclusively at Target! |Photo Source: Zimbio|

Rita Ora

Before taking the stage to perform “Let You Love Me”, the British singer-songwriter wore a periwinkle blue Versace dress with beautiful gold accents and matching boots. She exuded elegance. It’s definitely a far cry from her Post Malone Halloween costume. She took some time off from music to pursue acting, but is getting back on the saddle with a new album coming out this month. |Photo Source: Zimbio|

Victoria Beckham

Tonight, Victoria Beckham was presented with the Fashion Icon award and she truly deserved it. She wore a white power suit from her own collection and although it’s been a while since she’s been in the actual spotlight, she rocked it flawlessly. On another note, I loved the little ode to the Spice Girls! |Photo Source: Zimbio

Shay Mitchell

Shay Mitchell took some time off from her busy schedule and graced the red carpet in a maroon, halter style dress by Australian designer Toni Maticevski. The former Pretty Little Liars star has been busy since the iconic show has ended, starring in Lifetime’s You and soon to be seen on the big screen in The Possession of Hannah Grace. The other day, she even won YouTuber of the Year at the 2018 Revolve Awards! |Photo Source: Zimbio|

Bonus: Harry Shum Jr.

 

I adore Harry Shum Jr. and in my opinion he is one of the most fashionable men in the entertainment world. He wore a black, slim fit slacks and paired it with a double breasted black and grey blazer. His show Shadowhunters took home four awards, including his win for Male TV Star of 2018. Earlier today, him and his wife, Shelby Rabara, both announced that they’re expecting and the Gleek in me is so happy for the two! | Photo Source: Zimbio |Shelby Rabara IG |

Now Watching: You 1×6 |”Amour Fou” | Recap

Surprise bitches, Peach is not dead, much to Joe’s dismay. Beck’s bestie is on to him despite making her friends think she has a stalker. Joe never seems to finish the job on the first try.

The event has Beck by Peach’s side almost 24/7 and God forbid Joe would let that happen. So when Beck revealed she would be spending a few days with Peach at the Salinger estate in Greenwich, CT, Joe immediately went to his trusty friend the internet to find the place.

His road trip starts a little rocky when karma hits in the image of a deer. Joe swerves, crashes, and then wakes up the next morning daydreaming about his ex-girlfriend Candice. He gets the strength to move his car, but doesn’t get too far as a cop pulls him over. Of course, Joe is quick on his feet and makes up a story that seems to get him in the clear, or so he thinks.

Joe manages to sneak into the Salinger estate, but shortly after he faints from a concussion with a needle in his head. Candice enters his mind again and he’s reminded of a past getaway. He wakes up just as Peach and Beck get back.  He watches Peach watch Beck and has the audacity to call it perverse. After peeing in a jar on display, he creeps out of the house and is not slick at all.

Peach invites an old friend, Raj, to get a little drug party on, just like old times. While the three catch up, Joe looks for the gun Peach has hiding. He’s successful, but immediately hides under the bed as they enter the room to have a so called massage train. Raj passes out, while Peach gets a little handsy. Joe starts to see Candice and starts to compare his ex and his current in an inner monologue.

Drugs are not enough for Beck to forget she has a boyfriend and steps away from Peach’s advances. As she leaves, Raj and Peach hook up and Joe casually responds to Beck’s text from under the bed. Peach’s little game helps Beck make her decision about moving to Paris with the heiress. She turns her down and the whole conversation blows up. Beck storms out the door, while Peach scream, “You just use people.” And just like that, the friendship is over again.

Joe is proud of Beck, but his concussion doesn’t let him enjoy it because he has another flashback about Candice. But instead of a sweet memory, his mind goes back to the day he assumes Candice is cheating. She tries to explain herself, but he’s too jealous to understand. Once he gets back to the present, Peach knocks him out.

When Joe wakes up, Peach is hovering over him with her gun. He claims to be there to pick up Beck, but Peach finally realizes the Joe is her stalker. She also realizes that he’s wearing Benji’s watch. The two argue about who’s better for the aspiring writer and Joe gets in Peach’s head, “She’s never gonna do it. You can’t have her.” Joe runs and Peach shoots. She hits his leg and thinks he’s unconscious. But as Peach hovers yet again, he catches her off guard. The two struggle and a gun shot is heard in the distance.

Joe succeeded in removing another obstacle. He cleans his mess and uses what he knows about Peach to write a suicide letter. Joe drives away as police collect evidence at the Salinger estate. The same cop that stopped Joe earlier in the day happens to be at the crime scene as well. He actually ran the Joe’s license plate and his hunch about Joe is confirmed. I hope they find Joe’s urine on the shelf.

I also hope that Joe realizes that Beck is never going to forgive herself for what happened to Peach.

TLDR Version:

Peach is alive. Peach tries to seduce Beck with trips and kisses. Beck misses Joe. Joe pees in a jar. The bestie and bff argue about who’s better for Beck. Beck leaves Peach. Joe shoots Peach with her own gun and makes it look like a suicide. Joe is Beck’s night in shining armor again.
