In the past year or so I have been really getting into listening to podcasts. It started out being on long car rides when I lived in LA, and has continued now on my subway commute to work. I am always looking for new podcasts on various subjects to listen to, so I thought it would be fun to share with you all ones I have recently been loving in case any of you are looking for a new one to start as well! So with out further ado let’s jump on into it.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!
“You ain't seen nothin' yet. It's gonna be a night we'll never forget.” More like a year of nights we will never forget. This lyric taken from the Riverdale musical episode is only one of the many amazing moments to look back on in television from this past year, because 2018 was truly an amazing year for TV. So many great new shows came on the scene, and many returning shows had some epic episodes. There is so much to watch now, that it is honestly impossible to be able to experience all the great moments television has to offer. And coming from someone who did a lot of binging last year, it was hard to narrow down my ten favorite episodes from 2018. From musicals to series finales to finally finding out the answers to some of TV’s current biggest mysteries, here are my favorite episodes and moments from last year.Read More
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 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

From season rankings to favorite couples, this discussion section will look at the best and worst parts of each series. Today I will be looking at Gilmore Girls.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
Television has been great in for the development of women in film. Unlike in a movie where a lot of girls are cast as just a love interest, the best friend, or a mother figure, television shows allow us to get to know all of it's characters over many episodes, which allows them to develop more over time. There are many female characters that I love from TV, but this list will just discuss my absolute favorites.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
