    Bachelor In Paradise: Episode 6

    September 2, 2014 • 10:00 am

    Wow I have to say...tonight's episode was a lot of fun to watch, I really enjoyed it!!!!! We are a week away from the end, and so far...quite a few couples have been falling for each other - so great to see!!!!!

    First off, my girl Michelle Money...I have MAD respect for the amazing person and friend you are! Your true, genuine characteristics are really showing, and I have absolutely LOVED watching you and seeing you happy!!! Thank you for standing up for girls all around the world tonight and convincing Christy to tell Jesse off ;)

    Since my season, I have no hard feelings with Jesse, but I was disappointed with his behaviour last night. Can you believe what he said in the car ride home?!?!? I was shocked!!! He has proven how little he respects women, and it's pretty disgusting that he doesn't even see the harm in anything he does or says!!!!



    The connections between everyone are becoming so real and are developing so fast! I think everything is working out for so many because there are SOO many genuine, amazing guys in paradise that it's so hard NOT to fall for them! All of the men that are left...Graham, Marcus, Zack, Tasos, Cody and Robert have all shown that they know how to make their women feel special, appreciated, and genuinely cared for. I hope to see how the women really feel about the men next week, because not all of them have opened up yet! 

    Will the connections will be able to survive next week's twist and reality once they leave paradise! What do you think will happen next week?!?!

    2014 Emmys: Get The Look For Less

    August 27, 2014 • 10:00 am

    I fell head over heels for Sarah Hyland's outfit by Christian Siriano. So age appropriate for her, yet still so elegant!

    SHOP HER LOOK:

     
     

    I love the classic lines and cheeky cutouts of Lizzy Caplan's look by Donna Karan. You can never go wrong with black!

    SHOP HER LOOK:

     
     

    Oh, Sofia!!!!!! You always seem to nail it! Loved her white hot dress by Roberto Cavalli, especially with her fierce makeup!

    SHOP HER LOOK:

     

    Julia Roberts definitely surprised me with this super cute fit and flare dress by Elie Saab Couture! It fit her so well, and plays just a tad less serious than the other looks. Great job Julia!

    SHOP HER LOOK:


    Who wore your favourite Emmy looks?! I want to hear!!!!

    Bachelor In Paradise: Episode 4

    August 26, 2014 • 10:00 am

    So...last night I sat down to enjoy a steamy, drama-filled episode of Bachelor in Paradise, but the entire FIRST hour of it was cut off, fuzzy and extremely diffucult to hear! The good thing was that by the second hour, the station had fixed the problem. 

    Oooooh there were a lot of newcomers this week in the BIP house!!! Hahahah I can't believe Kalen went on a date by himself....then again how could you pass on a once in a lifetime opportunity to repel into a cave full of water!!!! What do all of you think of Jesse, from my season?!?!?! Do you think Jackie will pick him?

    OH MY GOSH what is wrong with AshLee?! I can't believe how conscious she is of the cameras. You are on BACHELOR IN PARADISE. The whole point of you being on the show is for you to be filmed, all the time, no matter where you go! Claire has made it pretty obvious that she's a loyal, good friend to these girls in the BIP house, so I don't even understand why AshLee would stir up all of this drama! What did she get out of it?

    I'm glad my girl Michelle told Graham right before the rose ceremony, because he definitely deserved to know. Just to know that the person you are paired up with is acting a different way on camera than off camera is a little unsettling, so I can understand why he needed to leave and figure out what he was going to say.

    Awwww Cody is just the sweetest. Unfortunatelt we won't know who is going home until tonight, as this episode is to be continued, but I hope Michelle picks him to give him a chance!!! My guess is that Kalen and Marquel will be going home....but we will find out tonight! 

    Until next week...
