2018 brought so many great films to the table. Not only did we get two major blockbuster films that represented both people of color and people from the Asian community, but we also got some great female empowerment movies as well. Then of course sprinkle in some musicals, superhero films, and some surprises from Netflix, and it was such an interesting year for movies. I started out the year with quite the list of ones I was eager to see, and I am proud to report that I got to see pretty much all of them and more! However, of all the movies I saw, some stood out above the rest. So here it is, the ten movies I loved the best from the past year.Read More
Welcome To My Blog!
Here I will be sharing my thoughts, opinions, and experiences on movies, television, travel, and of course design. As a graphic designer working in the film industry, I often get asked for my suggestions on what is new in the world of film, and so I'm going to share my thoughts here for other film lovers like me. I will also be documenting my travels, and life events, along with posts all about design and photography. Hope you enjoy my posts, and be sure to share your thoughts on these subjects with me as well in the comments. Happy blogging!
Welcome to my monthly favorite recommendations, where I will tell you about products and other things I've been loving from the previous month. I don't think I will do them at the end of every month, probably more like every other, but their main goal will be to give you guys some reviews of products I've been using and loving. Unfortunately, I have not been able to do one of these for the past few months, with moving and starting work full time again, things just got a little crazy, so I’m excited to be bringing it back this month. Unless otherwise noted, none of these posts will be sponsored or paid for by any of these brands, they will just be my honest opinion of things I've been trying lately. And of course, if they are sponsored, everything will still be my own opinions. So without further ado, let's get into my November favorites!Read More

It could just be because I'm living in Hollywood, but it seems like I was seeing the Ready Player One campaign everywhere over the past month, did anyone else? And if you have been following the movie, you will know that there was a lot of controversy around its many rounds of marketing. So in this post I will be taking a look at the marketing and design of the movie’s campaign, and deciding whether it was effective or not.Read More

To finish up my Women's History month posts, is a list of 10 women in the industry that I admire. There are so many amazing women to look up to in the industry today, but these are the women that I look up to and inspire me the most, and hopefully will inspire you as well!Read More
Movies have come quite a long way in the past few years in their representation of women, but there is still a lot of room for improvement. In most movies, women are still cast as just a love interest, the best friend, or a mother figure, and don't often get large backstories or parts to play in the narrative. But of course, there are quite a few who stand out as well. Ones who take over the screen with their wit, intelligence, thoughtfulness, kindness, and confidence. So to celebrate these awesome fictional ladies, I have rounded up my top ten favorites for you, so you can check them out too!Read More
I thought since March is Women's History Month, I would do a few posts to celebrate the amazing women in film, both real and fictional who have inspired me. To kick things off will be a post looking at how women are represented in the industry in general. Especially considering all that came to light this past year about how women in the industry have been treated, hopefully these posts will get you thinking and talking more about how women are considered both on and off screen. One way to do this is by seeing if our favorite movies pass the Bechdel Test.Read More
