One Tree Hill – Returning Cast Members

Some of our favorite and not-so-favorite characters returned to One Tree Hill Season 9.  The returning characters included Chris Keller, Dan Scott, Lucas Scott and more.  While I loved seeing Lucas return, I wish there was more of him.  I also would have loved to see Peyton and their daughter too.  My favorite returning character was Dan Scott.  In this season, we saw a whole transformation of family, forgiveness and a softer side to him.  We finally saw him as a human being.  He helped Hailey at Karen’s Café and he stepped up to help find Nathan.  He really turned his life around in the last episodes.

One Tree Hill – Personal Growth

Disclosure: I have been hired by Warner Bros. WBWord division to promote One Tree Hill Season Nine on DVD.

When I was younger, I didn’t know what I wanted to do with my life but I went straight to college after high school.  Personal life stepped in and I didn’t finish.  I was by no means a carefree girl, I just didn’t know what I wanted to study.

Gossip Girl: The Bonus Content on the DVD

beauty brite sponsored

The complete fourth season of Gossip Girl not only has 22 episodes filled with love, betrayal, friendship and scandal, but also never-before-seen features such as unaired scenes and gag reels!

My favorite character is Serena because she has been the nice girl throughout the show.  She has a laid back sense of style and I just admire the way she dresses.  Her wardrobe has a delicate look that exudes a relaxed attitude.  She doesn’t take things too seriously.  Serena has the look that she likes to have fun but she can adapt to the situation.

Behind the scenes, it’s nice to see the other side of our favorite actors.  As a fan, we only see them as the character they play that we forget that they are only actors.  When we can see them flubbing their lines while filming, it reminds us that they are acting.  When I think of an actor, I think of them as the character I know them as.

Who are your favorite moments and/or characters from Season 4?  What characters do you relate to or admire most?

Don’t miss the unaired never-before-seen clips of the 4th season of Gossip Girl on DVD!

Nikita: Friendship and Teamwork

beauty brite sponsored

Nikita and Alex grow and become a team as the show progresses, but aiding Nikita could mean death for Alex if she’s ever found out.

I haven’t been asked to do anything strange for friends, but I have been asked for discounts from friends.  When I worked in retail and in hotels, my friends have asked for discounts!  It’s not strange but it’s inconvenient for me as we are not allowed to extend our employee discounts to friends.  However, on a few occasions, I have extended my employee discount to friends and unfortunately one time it did backfire.  If I were to extend my employee discount, I would do it differently.  I personally do not like asking for favors, so I don’t really like being asked for favors either.  Although it depends on who is asking what they are asking.  If the favor is a quid pro quo situation, then I would have no problem doing that since we would both be benefiting.

What say you?  What is the strangest request that you’ve ever done for a friend and given the choice now would you do it again?

Nikita – Would you give it all up?

beauty brite sponsored

“The Division” recruits troubled youth, erase their background and shapes them into spies and assassins. If given the chance, would you neglect your current life for one of globe trotting spy work if it meant you would have to cut all ties with everyone in your life?

If you asked me this question 10 or 11 years ago, before I met my husband and had our son, I may have said yes!  Back then, I was single and I had the freedom!  Today, I am married and I have my son.  I would never give up my family ties to travel and work as a spy.  While I love travel, it’s not worth giving up my family and my life.

So, what would you do?  Would you give it all up to work as a spy?

The first season of Nikita is 22 episodes in Nikita: The Complete First Season

Looks can be deceiving with Nikita

 

beauty brite sponsored

There have been several moments throughout the show that Nikita has been judged solely on her looks, which is a huge mistake!

I think a lot of people are judged based on their outward appearance.  How do you think most people are first attracted to the person they are dating or married to?  If you met your significant other in person, you probably judged them first by the way they look.  It doesn’t make you a bad person to judge someone, it’s the way you treat them that matters.  Your thoughts are your own, but how you treat people really means something.

My husband and I would move heaven and earth for our own family and friends. However, we expect somewhat of the same from our family and friends.  We would hope that our family and friends would help us when we needed it.

The first season of Nikita does not disappoint. Filled with action, deceit, and romance, Nikita and her wide array of friends and enemies fight to the very last minute of this exciting 22 episode season in Nikita: The Complete First Season

Fashion on Gossip Girl

beauty brite sponsored

When fans discuss Gossip Girl, they talk about the fashion almost as much as they dish on the scandal!  Whether Serena and Blair are dressed in designer ready-to-wear or couture off the runway, their ensembles are always high-end and on trend. Each girl’s style reflects her individual personality–Blair’s style is classic Upper East Side chic while Serena’s style is sexy and effortless.

I prefer Serena’s sense of style because it seems laid back and easy going.  I am a mom, so I don’t have time to dress like I just stepped off a runway.  Nor do I have the budget for that type of wardrobe.  My clothes are things that I can actually afford, which isn’t much.  I like clothes I feel comfortable in.  I also like clothes that will survive more than just 5 washes.  I am not up-to-date on the latest fashion trends, I wear what fits in my budget and works with my lifestyle.  I do want to dress cute and girly, but at the same time, I don’t want to dress like I am trying to be a teenager.  I want to dress my age without feeling like a frumpy mom.

Step on the runway of style with the fabulous 4th season of Gossip Girl on DVD
