Two words: HARRY STYLES. I was never really on the One Direction bandwagon. I liked some of their songs, and I’ve enjoyed Zayn’s recent music. However, Harry Styles y’all. There are no words to describe how in love I am with his new solo album. I had heard his song on the radio a few times and loved the sound, but didn’t know who was singing. I had to ask Siri and was shocked that it was Harry!
I spent way more time than I’d like to admit watching his performances with James Corden on Youtube. He seems insanely confident (and hot) on stage, and you can just tell this is the start of a ridiculous career. I promptly bought the whole album, which I’ve listened to on repeat ever since.
(Also, my mom is four years older than my dad… so I’m holding out hope.)
I just finished watching Girlboss on Netflix. I know nothing about Nasty Gal or Sophia Amoruso. If you don’t know, the show is loosely based on the book Sophia Amoruso wrote about starting her online clothing store. It’s an entertaining and easy-to-watch show, although Sophia’s character is downright unlikeable at times. I think the most interesting part of it is that it happens at such a cool period as far as the internet goes. She starts out with an Ebay store and launches a dot com without knowing anything about how to do it. It’s almost hard to imagine a time when you couldn’t just pop online and start a website in a day.
When I finished Girlboss, I wanted something else to watch. I recently figured out that I had Amazon Prime (not sure why I didn’t know that before, haha), but I was exploring the shows they had and stumbled on Good Girls Revolt. It’s REALLY good. There’s only one season, but it’s about women who work at News of the Week in the 1970s. The music and fashion are amazing! And it’s oddly relevant as the women fight for equality in the newsroom. I’m a few episodes in and hooked.
You guys know I love a good documentary! This one is interesting but also kind of freaky and weird. Just be warned. It seems like something a tabloid would have fabricated to sell more papers… but nope. It’s true. I remember when this Buzzfeed piece was circling around the internet last year about what has to be the most extreme and bizarre case of Munchausen syndrome by proxy ever. Basically, a mom tricks the world into thinking her daughter has all kinds of ailments (you name it) and the daughter eventually kills the mom. I told you, freaky. Well HBO has a documentary about the whole case called Mommy Dead and Dearest and it’s even weirder than you can imagine.
Would love to know what you’re listening to or watching lately! Anything good I should add to my queue?
