Five Things (YouTube Version)

Finding a new style to post in is posing to be difficult for me because I love sharing my feelings with GIFs! The main goal of this blog is for readers to know me better and that’s by learning that I watch too much TV and many movies and that I’ve forgotten how to communicate like a normal human being. Therefore, this is a silly assignment and I refuse to do it! Correctly.

But, on the other hand, I can communicate with videos! I used to be big into YouTube, even had a channel with subscribers I didn’t have to pay off or anything! I’ve fallen off heavily in the last 4 years, but I happened to be scrolling through my favorite videos and laughing at what kind of stuff I was interested in at the time. Twilight movie trailer? Check (btw, I’m reformed). Makeup tutorials I never used. YESSIR. Nirvana’s MTV Unplugged performance of “Dumb”? You got it.

After the cut, here’s five videos that tell you more about me. Please don’t judge.

Golden Globes 2015

This is in no way a fashion blog, but what I love about awards season is THE FASHION. I feel like in my 20s I should have had more chances to get dolled up in a  gown and show out.

But since that has yet to happen, I choose to live vicariously through celebrities and their beautiful designer everything. My winner for the night, thus far? Kate Hudson:

SLAY MAMA! She wears a lot of white during award shows and can clearly pull it off. This Versace Versace Versace is giving me Vegas showgirl realness and I’m loving it? Ba-da-da-da-da

But who else were some of my faves? After the cut!

Dark Roast: The Blog

Staring at my computer screen trying to figure out a name and tagline for this blog was a task.

I wrote down names, bounced ideas off of my best friend and boyfriend, sometimes without enthusiasm and lost a lot of confidence.

If I couldn’t even come up with a name that inspired me, what was the point of starting a blog?
