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.

Gossip Girl: Relationships


beauty brite sponsored

Relationships play a huge role in Gossip Girl. Chuck & Blair, the show’s most popular couple, have been on-and-off throughout the Gossip Girl series. They are consistently at ends with each other, but their love seems to have no bounds. However, as the season progresses, Blair begins to have feelings for her best friend Serena’s ex, Dan. In Season 4, Ep 18, The Kids Stay in the Picture, Chuck comes to the realization that he wants to win Blair back after she and Dan share a kiss.

I am open to the idea of “opposites attract” in regards to relationships.  My husband and I are alike in some ways, but not all.  We share common values and we each bring different ideas and goals to our relationship.  I think Blair and Dan could work.  They are two very different people with different personalities.  I think Dair can make it work!  Chuck is too much of a player for Blair.  I think Blair wants love and stability, but not quite ready for settling down.  She just wants somewhat normal relationship.

If you love drama, relationships develop, friendships tested, or just want to see how the rich kids live, then check out Gossip Girls!

Remember the Looney Tunes?  If you grew up in the 70s, 80s, and early 90s, you may remember Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, and Elmer Fudd!

I used to watch my favorite cartoons on the weekends!  I wish they would bring back the Looney Tunes or even update them and do remakes!  My favorite character was Tweety Bird!

Imagine creating your own cartoon and adding your own sound effects from your favorite childhood cartoons!

Female Empowerment


beauty brite sponsored

Rizzoli & Isles are two women in powerful positions who can accomplish anything they put their minds to while having an influence upon others. As such, the show empowers women with both characters coming from different points of view and background while remaining true to themselves in getting their job done. As a testament to this, Rizzoli & Isles won Best Drama at the ‘Women’s Image Network Awards’ in 2010.

I love watching shows that show strong women, I think Rizzoli & Isles make positive female role models for women and girls of all ages.  They are both experts in their field while helping each other and the entire team solve the case.  Both Rizzoli & Isles are portrayed as smart, witty, and quick thinking women who can take charge.  Women take on that same role by taking charge, whether they are a wife, a stay at home mom, or even a working mom.  Women can be just as powerful as men!

See the reason why Rizzoli & Isles won Best Drama at the 2010 Women’s Image Network Awards.

Female Friendship & Loyalty

beauty brite sponsored
Despite their many differences, Rizzoli & Isles are best friends with a peculiar and compassionate relationship.  As exec-producer Janet Tamaro explains, “There’s something rare about their relationship that I see in the world but not enough on television: two smart, strong, competent women who instinctively drop the protective shield when they’re with each other.”  Do you have a relationship like Rizzoli & Isles with a co-worker or friend?  If so, what is your story?  Here is mine…

Before I was married and had our son, I worked at a hotel in Downtown Sacramento (the same place where I met my husband).  I had co-worker that I was pretty close to, we worked morning shift 4 or 5 days a week together, so we knew each other pretty well.  I have a feeling she lived a “one-viewed” life.  She got pregnant at 13 and had a baby at 14 and attended church.  We had other differences between our lives but it didn’t keep us from being friends and getting along.  We stuck by each other and helped each other during our shift.  We could depend on each other.

We never really argued or disagreed with each other.  We respected each other and did our jobs together.  We genuinely cared about each other and watch each others backs, much like Rizzoli & Isles.  You will see Isles show concern for Rizzoli and step out of her element to protect her (i.e. learn how to hold a gun and point).  I don’t know about learning to use a gun, but I would certainly help out a co-worker, if they were true and honest towards me.  If a co-worker treated me with kindness, concern, and trust, I would do the same.  Over the years, I have realized that I unfortunately cannot trust every co-worker.  When I find ones that I can trust, I guard and value that friendship!

Excited for the second season of Rizzoli & Isles? Get prepared with all 10 episodes of the first season on DVD!
