Parade of Nations

One of my favorite parts of the Olympic opening ceremony is when all the countries come out to represent themselves in the competition. Not only is it so interesting to watch the camaraderie it creates among all the athletes but also the individuality of every nation.

The fashion-loving side of me also loves to comment on the choice of the teams’ “costumes” so I’ll be updating my favorites as the coverage continues! Obviously the US outfits are v. classy but it seems the Polo labels were meant to be seen from space. soooo….

The trends I have noticed so far is a lot of yellow (not mad at that) and an overwhelming number of blazers/sports jackets. Not mad at that either but it does seem to stifle some of the creativity that can go into the design. ALSO, I don’t know how I feel about Portugal wearing JEANS?! c’mon.

My Top picks (imo and kinda in order):
  • Serbia
  • Burkina Faso
  • Bahamas
  • Aruba
  • Israel
  • Latvia
  • Sierra Leonne
  • Cayman Islands
  • Angola
  • Montenegro
  • Poland
  • San Marino- soo fit.
  • Peru
  • Paraguay
  • Kyrgyzstan

Got this cool candle for my birthday 🙂 You let it burn for a while and then it reveals a fancy shmancy ring that could be worth 10 to 5,000 dollars #letsdothis #burnbabyburn

Return of the Rose

It’s that time again, Bachelorette season is back and because Juan Pablo’s personality was so unbearably un-watchable, I’m reluctant to continue watching but I’ve decided to give it another chance. I am mostly watching it for three reasons: There is nothing else I watch on Mondays anymore, I like Andi, and I like dudes ❤ hehe

It was really sad though that Eric had passed away and its going to be weird seeing his chemistry with Andi progress…. AND I totally felt for the one contestant Josh B. who didn’t get a rose boutinere, Not only because he was cute but because it sucks going to all this trouble and then getting eliminating before getting the chance to even talk to the girl… :/ #bummer

And now for the moment you all have been waiting for!!! My friends and I did another draft because really what else serves as incentive to watch this drama… And my picks consist of what I consider to be some pretty good odds:

  • Marquel
  • Brian
  • J.J.
  • Andrew

Fingers Crossed!
