August Favorites 2017

Although it’s still super hot outside where I live, summer isn’t going to last for much longer. I’m really excited for the upcoming fall season… especially the gorgeous autumn colors in makeup, fashion, and hair. This fall, the colors that are most popular are: Ruby, Emerald, Royal Purple, Black, Deep Cafe Brown, Gray, and Navy. Without […]

love+war is fairly new to the indie music scene (I hadn’t heard of them until a few weeks ago), but their music is amazing! The Nashville-based duo (consisting of writer-producer team Coury Palermo & Ron Robinson) just released their latest concept album, Nine Lives— a 9-track album that consists of covers from the 70’s, 80’s, 90’s, […]

TV Review: Raven’s Home

Over the past several decades, there have been thousands of Disney Channel original TV shows and movies. However, only a select few have really proven to be successful… such as That’s So Raven. Airing from 2003 to 2007, it was the first show in Disney Channel history to make the 100-episode mark. When the series premiered on […]

Hello, it’s Me

raw and fresh signature

I was wondering if after all these years you’d like to meet? To go over… I may have referenced Adele’s mega-popular song “Hello”, but this isn’t a review of her music. This is me, saying what’s really on my heart. In the past two and a half years since I last wrote a real post on […]

I have to be honest here, Disney Channel was a large part of my childhood. Some of my earliest memories involve rocking out to Disney CDs on my portable CD player. These albums often consisted of songs by artists such as Aly & AJ, the Jonas Brothers, and Miley Cyrus– some of the most popular Hollywood Records artists […]

Music Review: “Scars To Your Beautiful” (CD Single)

It’s something that’s been written about before. Songs such as Britt Nicole’s crossover hit “Gold,” Kelly Clarkson’s “Breakaway,” or Beyonce’s “Listen” all have this recurring theme: inner beauty and what happens if you believe in yourself. The underlying message is even present within various forms of Disney media, such as the 2008 children’s song “Fly […]

Music Review: Beautiful Awakening

Does anyone remember Stacie Orrico’s song “I’m Not Missing You?” One of the most popular songs of 2006, this upbeat pop/R&B track was different from any other breakup song. Instead of lamenting the relationship that once was, the lyrics talk about leaving behind the past and moving on with your life after a breakup. It […]

Music Review: “Cake By The Ocean” (CD Single)

If someone asked me who I thought performed this song after hearing it for the first time, I probably would’ve guessed Maroon 5. I would’ve never guessed that one of the Jonas Brothers wrote it. Calling themselves “your new favorite band,” the alternative pop-rock group DNCE is already charting on the Billboard Hot 100 with […]
