It is absolutely no secret that Oscar Sunday is my FAVORITE Sunday in the entire calendar year. Nothing comes close to that magic. I love the champagne, the fashion, the Leo snubs deserved awards. I love the Oscars so much, I went to the red carpet last year and screamed at celebrities. No, for real, check it out. Pssssttt….The freebies are at the end! Scroll down.
In my defense, I had planned to write this post last week but life got in the way, as it always does. I am not big on New Years Resolutions, I think they are dumb. Why wait for a certain day to start something I’m never going to follow through on? I can do that today. However, I did feel I wanted to focus on something this year. Less of a resolution, more of a promise to myself.
I wanted to be more authentic, more me. When I started this blogging adventure, there were so many people telling you want to do and how to succeed. “Post this many times a day” “Post this content” “Make your Instagram themed, cohesive, only post if it matches”
Well, well, well…… They have finally given in. I was allowed to get us the champagne served at Kate & William and Harry & Meghan’s wedding receptions. I am a Royal Family junkie, let me enjoy things. So, they agreed to split the cost so we could use it for the show. Honestly though, it was only like $65. The Queen is frugal, but I would be too if I had to serve beverages to hundreds of elites.
About 30 minutes into the mess that was Sips and Scandals Episode 4, we decided we wanted to talk about the Golden Globes. I told my rambunctious cohorts that we COULD but only if we did it fast because this video was like 45 minutes long and held almost nothing of substance. Which was probably why it was our most popular episode lol.
I know, I know. Some of you are thinking “Did Taylor Swift ever leave”, and the answer is yes.
I will preface this with….I was never a huge fan of Taylor Swift. I sensed something off from the beginning. I’m a psychic, okay not really but whatever. Also, I’ve read some articles about this that look like a college Thesis, this will be like the cliff notes version people read instead. Welcome my lazy procrastinators.
At this moment in time, a man is being considered for a lifetime appointment to The Supreme Court. This man has three times been accused of sexual harassment/assault since his nomination. His name is Bret and was a frat boy. Obviously. Brett Kavanaugh tried his best to negate the claims, not keeping his cool one bit, and showing he doesn’t have the level head needed to be appointed to the highest court in the land
However, this is not about Brett. This is about Dr. Christine Blasey Ford. Who bravely came forward with her claim and story when Kavanaugh was nominated. Also, I’m sick of the
“huh convenient time to come out don’t you think”
Like, yes, I do think. Survivors probably never want to come forward, but if their attacker was about to get one of the most important seats in the government, that would be the time to come forward.
A couple of the most wise girls I know (here and here) have said similar things that resonated with me lately. It all boils down to, if you wait for everything to be perfect before you start something, you’ll never start.
So, here is something new I’m trying. Its raw and awkward and well, its real. The name isn’t set in stone and we wonder off here and there but as far as I’m concerned….it only gets better from episode 1.
