Golden Globes Review

Hi Everyone

Hope you all are doing well!  Did anyone else have a busy Sunday? I actually did! I ran my first 15K in San Francisco called  The Hot Chocolate Run. Then after coming back from San Francisco, I relaxed until the Golden Globes were on.

WOW

I was in love with everyone wearing Black to show solidarity for women in the entertainment business. Even all the men at the show wearing black was absolutely breathtaking. It truel shows that people can come together and show support and want change. It’s not just words on a page, but really a movement that has been slowly rising until now.

Speaking of words, I think the most eloquent speeches spoken at the awards show has to go to Oprah Winfrey.  I mean if people weren’t rooting for her to be president, I’m sure now they will. ( I don’t know if the rumors are true if she will run for prez, but I kinda hope so!)  She gave us all such influential advice with a bit of history and why we as a human being should all be standing up for each other ( as women and men) to create and be the CHANGE!

Oprah at the Golden Globes 2018

I think the only disappointment  I felt at the Golden Globes was in the directorial category where Natalie Portman made it very clear it was all MALE. Which I found odd because several films that came out this year and were highly recognized in  the entertainment light were female-directed movies, such as :

  • “Lady Bird” by Greta Gerwig
  • “Wonder Woman” by Patty Jenkins
  • “Mudbound” by Dee Reese
  • “The Zookeepers Wife” by Niki Caro
  • “Everything  Everything” by  Stella Meghie
  • “Underworld: Bloodlines” by Stacy Title

Now I’m not saying, Guillermo del Toro didn’t deserve his win for “The Shape of Water”  because that movie was absolutely breathtaking and very well done! Christopher Nolan’sDunkirk” film was also another favorite of mine as the cinematography on that film was beautiful. I also loved that it truly portrayed that time in the existence of WW2 and what all those men were feeling and just wanting to go home.

I wish I knew what qualifies a film to be considered Best Picture and what qualifies a director to be considered for Best Director in an award show.  Maybe someone will spill the beans one day. Or I can try and work my way into the Foreign Press Association and tell everyone secretly. LOL

Anyways, did any of you have any interesting thoughts on the Golden Globes this past Sunday? What did you think about all the “Times Up” and winners?  Let me know in the comments below! ❤

2018 Resolutions

Hello Everyone

Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and a fantastic new years eve.

It’s the start of the new year which means – NEW YEARS RESOLUTION!

Yep, everyone is striving for their new year’s resolution which either will end in 3 – 4 months time or some will be the lucky few to actually accomplish whatever they set out to do.  It’s why all my resolutions, I like to try and keep it simple.  Last year I know one of my goals was to be more active and to workout more. I can say, this past year I have successfully obtained a workout routine – 3 days at the Gym, 1-2 days of running.

This year’s resolutions I am focusing more on what I truly want to do and be. That means more movies, more productions, more acting and more creating content with videos and blog post. I want to be more persistent in creating and doing more work.  I don’t think I’ve hustled enough like I should’ve done in the past. I think I need to be more productive in the sense that I need to put my self out there more.  At least, this is how I feel about myself.  So here are my 2018 resolutions I would like to accomplish this year.

Fitness

  • Run a 15K
  • Obtain my routine from last year
  • Hike more mountains/trails
  • Run at least 2 10ks

Creative

  • 3 – 4 Blog post a month
  • 2 – 3 Videos a month on my Youtube Channel
  • Start writing more Scripts ( complete at least 1)
  • Revamp Brand
  • Take more photos
  • Be apart of 1-2 productions
  • Go out and audition! ( Be the actress you know you are) ❤

  • Read more books ( 1 book ever 2 months)
  • Color in my Coloring Books
  • Drink more Tea ❤
  • Take more baths
  • Watch movies ( in the theaters)

I’m OBESSED with Stranger Things

Ello Everyone

So I recently watched all 2 seasons of Stanger Things and I CAN’T GET ENOUGH!!! No seriously, I can’t stop watching it over and over again, through Netflix, Instagram scenes, and watching all their youtube interviews and stuff. :O

Now I can totally get behind why everyone was freaking out about Stranger Things when it first came out. The storyline is phenomenal, all the characters have different and complex arches and we start to see them more as individuals in season 2, and the freaking ART DEPARTMENT NAILED IT! I mean some of the things that they show during that period, my dad says is true to that decade. They did a good job on their research and attention to detail. ❤

Don’t know if you all know this but Season 3 of Stranger Things has been renewed so that’s good! Now it’s just passing the time until we can all go back to Hawkins 🙂 So to all my people who also love and are still obsessed with Stranger Things, what do I do?!! Is there another show I can watch to keep me occupied until season3? Are their more interviews and behind the scenes clips, I can watch? Let me know what you guys are doing to help with your obsession with Stranger Things.  LOL

Here are some cool pictures from this past season that I liked. If any of you have more pictures of things I should check out, let me know! ❤
