Sorry about missing this feature last week, I was absolutely crazy with work and studying. I found it really difficult to get on the blog train mid-week while I was struggling so much, so I’m trying not to fall off again. I love blogging and sharing things with you, and it’s way easier to find time to do it when you keep your momentum going. Thanks for sticking with me through last week! Now back to our original programming….
Who – Beyonce
I’m not featuring Beyonce here for any of the reasons she’s been in the news lately; the line “bow down, bitches”, calling her tour the Mrs. Carter tour, and a little further back her HBO documentary. I’m featuring Beyonce because finding out she was performing at the Made in America festival this Labor Day has been the most exciting moment of the week. You can have your own opinions about Beyonce’s music or lifestyle, but girl can work a stage. I can’t wait to spend my labor day weekend with my best friends, some Budweisers, and Mr. and Mrs. Carter.
What – Runway Stretch Silk Color Blocked Scoopneck Tank Maxi Dress
Boy that name was a mouthful. I’m hoping to live in maxi dresses, aviators, and sandals all summer and hope my corporate job is ok with that. This dress is the most versatile maxi I’ve found, and perhaps its because its in such neutral colors. I’d love to make it fun and playful with some bright baubles, and maybe add my leather bomber for those brisk summer nights. Either way, I love it.
Where – Bettles Lodge – Bettles, Alaska
If I’m going to go all the way to Alaska, its going to be for an amazing outdoor experience. Although the Bettles Lodge doesn’t seem to be the most luxurious of lodges, when you look at that view of the northern lights, I don’t think you could ask for anything more. I’ve always wanted to see the northern lights, and I’d gladly give up a little bit of luxury for that awe inspiring sight. There are mountains and a lake and it is so beautiful.
Watching – The Following
I’ve been trying to avoid posting about The Following because, I know there is no way it is everyone’s cup of tea. It really scares me, like REALLY scares me; but, the twists and turns keep me coming back. The Following follows the FBI and ex-agent Ryan Hardy (Kevin Bacon), as they try and figure out the secrets of Joe Carroll’s (James Purefoy) cult. The cult uses Edgar Allen Poe as one of their central themes, and they gather around the more sinister ideas in his short stories. I don’t know if I’ve mentioned it but, these cult members are seriously SCARY. I’m not going to give anything away in case anyone wants to jump on The Following train but, every week I find myself saying (to myself, because none of my friends watch it), “there’s no way…NO WAY.” Yet somehow, it is always the way. If you like shows that are thrill rides, I really recommend The Following. Also as a bonus, Shawn Ashmore, who I had a big crush circa 1999 (thank you, Animorphs), also stars in the show.
What are you loving this week?
