But I’m a ’90’s Bitch

By | June 25th, 2015|broke girl's budget, pop culture, to do list|

As much as our parents try to convince us that the music from their generation trumps ours, I will defend the 1990's 'til the end. Although I was negative-one-year-old when the decade began, I consider myself a true '90s kid. We had the best bands, the best TV shows, and some of the best trends. [...]

Chasing Netflix

By | June 23rd, 2015|pop culture, to do list, uncolored reviews|

I'm always looking for the best binge-worthy shows to add to my list on Netflix. What better way to use my time than by melting my brain with four consecutive hours of screen time? I mean, those late night hours would just be spent sleeping, anyway. Who needs that? That brings me to a few weeks [...]

More Pants, More Problems: Elaine Stritch

By | July 28th, 2014|pop culture|

Fearless, funny, and fashionable. No, I’m not talking about myself! J I can only hope that those are a few of the words that come to mind when someone describes me 67 years from now. Yup, that’s the head start actress Elaine Stritch had on me until she passed away on July 17th at the [...]

From Gossip Girl to Broadway Brain: 5 Reasons I’m Still Obsessed with Leighton Meester

By | July 17th, 2014|pop culture|

 Actress Leighton Meester published a sort-of critique of John Steinbeck’s Of Mice and Men in the Huffington post yesterday. I say ‘sort-of’ because Meester isn’t so much critiquing the story, but rather the reaction of the modern-day audience. During her four-month run as the only female – a nameless character, at that – in the [...]

Looking for Lana

By | July 10th, 2014|pop culture|

By the time I arrived in Barcelona for my semester abroad winter of my junior year, I was hooked on Lana Del Rey. As I played her songs on 8tracks from my stark European bedroom, the space became the hangout spot for me and my roommates. Sure, it probably had more to do with the [...]

I Didn’t Wake Up Like This

By | July 3rd, 2014|broke girl's budget, pop culture|

  After reviewing the On the Run concert, I figured it was only fitting to share some of my personal outfit pictures. After all, you don't show up to see Queen B in just any ol' thing.   There's no better time to show some sass than at the concert of music's power couple, right? [...]

All Hail the Queen

By | July 2nd, 2014|pop culture|

I'm just gonna say it: I never totally understood the Beyonce hype. You're probably thinking I must be blind and/or deaf. But here's the thing. I like her music. I think she's beautiful. I think her family is precious. I just didn't fully grasp the cult-like phenomenon that surrounded her. I thought it was a [...]
