    Bachelor in Paradise: FINALE + Falling for Smythe

    September 9, 2014 • 10:00 am

    OMGGGGG we have finally reached the END of Bachelor in Paradise!!! What did all of you think of the final episode...and the ultimatum that Chris Harrison gave everyone?!?! I'm really glad that Michelle talked to Graham about AshLee...I know AshLee had her heart set on making it work with Graham, but he wasn't 100% in it, and that was pretty obvious. 

    It was sooooo adorable when Michelle called her little girl to ask for advice! What a sweet, smart girl you have, my love!!!! And ahhhhh, I'm SOOO happy for you!!!! It's so great to hear that you are happy and now have someone who treats you the way you deserve to be treated!

    Lacey and Marcus were pretty much a given to have a great time on their fantasy suite date...they are CRAZY about each other and are clearly in love! 

    I do feel sorry for Sarah...she deserves someone amazing, and it's unfortunate that she was turned down by Robert on their fantasy suite date :( WHYYYY did he say yes to the date if he wasn't into it?! And yes to staying in paradise with Sarah?!?!?! What's this guy's problem????

    I'm REALLY proud of Sarah for confronting Robert and asking him why he acted the way he did. She didn't feel loved, beautiful, wanted, or happy in that moment, and those are the MOST important feelings you should feel. Robert acted like he didn't do ANYTHING wrong, and didn't realize what he did! I mean...how could he not know what he did...he went to sleep with jeans on and pushed Sarah away!!!!!! It's almost as if he put on a face for TV and his feelings for Sarah weren't real. I don't know...what do you guys think?! Poor Sarah :(

    Awwww it was great to see a few of the good Bachelor fam to talk to the remaining couples!!!! So good to see my good friends Molly and Jason too!!!! I LOVED Cody's speech, he has proven that he is such a sweet, genuine guy :) Michelle did an amazing job describing how happy Cody makes her...she's been waiting to find an amazing guy like him to show her dedication, kindness, respect, admiration and LOVE!!!!! Ahhh so happy for you both!!! 

    OMGGGGGGG Marcus!! Look at that Neil Lane bling!!! I swear I don't read any spoilers, so I had NOO idea this was coming!!! His speech was sooo awesome, and the two of them are such an amazing couple together; they're such a great match!!!!! I wish you two the best of luck with your happy ever after!!!!! Oh man...I'm feeling gushy and teary eyed after watching this!

    Ok ok enough gushy love talk!! Onto fashion love!!!!!! As we transition into Fall, I can't help but fall for my new 10x10 Smythe jacket!!!! It's the perfect fall blazer to pair with plaid, tweed, leather, and EVERYTHING in between!!!! To make things even more exciting, Smythe has just celebrated their 10 year anniversary, with their new 10x10 collection, and I couldn't be happier for them!!!

    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?!?!

    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...

    Bachelor in Paradise: Episode 3

    August 19, 2014 • 10:00 am

    Is it just me….or is this show just getting WAAAAAY to repetitive and boooring???? I feel like ALL of their dates are the same, and they’re visiting all the same places in Mexico! They should be incorporating challenges or something…they definitely need to add a huge twist into the show to make it a bit more interesting!

    This week, Marquel was dating everyone! It was SOO crazy when he almost got struck by lightning! Scary stuff! This week, I guess he’s just trying to test the waters and take time to figure out who the BEST fit for him, but matching up with Jackie was very unexpected!

    Are Lacy and Marcus SO boring together that the cameramen don’t film them at all?! What’s up with that?!

    AshLee is showing her craziness more and more throughout this season! Did you SEE Graham’s eye rolls throughout their date?!?! It’s so hard to tell if he’s really interested in her, or if he’s just playing it safe!

    I REALLY wanted Michelle to make it work with Robert and sway him…but he’s made it clear that he sees something better with Sara!! I’m sorry, but I was NOT okay with Sara crying and feeling sorry for herself the ENTIRE episode! Show some initiative and ask people on dates instead!

    Oh Elise, you’re head over heels for Chris!!! I hope he’s into you as much as you’re into him! Take care of that leg :) It was so cute when Chris gave the rose to Michelle….I didn’t know WHAT would happen in that moment! I totally thought that all four of them would have to go home, but it’s great that Michelle can still stay! You are killing it with your style and fashion, you go girl!

    Until next week…

    Bachelor in Paradise: Episode 2

    August 12, 2014 • 10:00 am

    WOW...was that a lot of back and forth last night or WHAT?! I honestly had no idea who would pick who by the end of this episode!!! Michelle K??? How could you possibly make someone want to jump off a balcony and injure himself? I feel like that could have been SO much worse…thank God he’s ok!!!!!

    I really didn’t think that Lacy was into Marcus based on last week….she made it seem like she was CRAZY about Robert last episode! Because of that…I was pretty certain that Robert would be going home….but HE STAYED!

    Which brings me to Dylan! I kind of understand where he was coming from…he arrived and was immediately latched onto Elise because she was obsessed with him, and he never had a chance to get to know anyone else or explore other connections. When he finally voiced his opinion, Elise took it WAAAY to far with a steamy ocean make out with Chris. To be honest, I think Dylan was probably relieved that she did that because it gave him the FREE pass and allowed him to see what else was out there!! Elise's speech was just too much! The reactions of everyone were HILARIOUS to watch! Do you think Sara wanted to stay true to Elise, and that’s why she didn’t give Dylan the rose??? I totally thought she would give it to him!

    Marquel telling Michelle that he would change things about her…like her love of drinking, was a COMPLETE turn off. You should never say that there are things you would change or prefer to be different about anyone! It’s just rude! However, he is sweet and darling, so hopefully it will all work out!

    I’m so excited to see who else arrives! Sayonara Ben and Dylan!!!!!!

    Until next week…
