Alessia Cara: Not Your Average Pop Star

Credit: Vulture.Com


Alessia Cara is not your average pop star. The Canadian singer doesn't wear flashy clothes or accessories, nor does she wear makeup when she is performing on stage. Why? Well, in a recent interview she says, "I think just the entertainment industry in general or just the media in general-there's just such a mold that goes with that kind of stuff. There's such a standard of what a pop star is, and if I don't fit that, there's going to be criticism."


I think it's so great that she actually wants to focus on her music and get a message out there to her fans with the lyrics rather than impress with the sparkly outfits and makeup. Don't get me, I love that too, but you rarely see artists these days who go out to perform and have people only come and care about the music. This reminds me of Ed Sheeran. It's just him and his equipment. No dancers or background singers or expensive clothing. I appreciate the fact that he's dressed in  jeans and zip up hoodie. Yes, it's a simple outfit but it doesn't distract and it makes me feel like he's just an ordinary guy.

Everyone is going to be different and I'm glad that more women like Alessia are embracing that part of themselves and sharing it with the world.

Royal Caribbean: Allure of the Seas experience

I just came back from my week long cruise on the Allure of the Seas and let me tell you, this was such an amazing cruise ship! If I could bring every single person on this planet on this cruise ship, I would. I had such a fun time with my family and created new friendships and that's the beauty of cruises, they bring everyone together.

Central Park:  So, they had a "central park" on the ship and that was probably one of my favorite parts of the ship. (The photo above is me in front of the entrance). It had restaurants, stores, string lights, a Rising Tide bar, and picturesque plants and statues.

Cruise Activities:  There were so many things to do on this ship that you could never be bored. Clubs, zip lining, FlowRider, carousel, ping pong, mini golf, basketball, pool, karaoke, zumba, spa, musicals,  comedy shows, shopping, the casino and more! Seriously, you have something to do at all times, including eating copious amounts of food.

Dining:  Ok, so I wasn't thoroughly…

10 Questions From Pretty Little Liars We Still Want Answers To

The series finale of Pretty Little Liars left everyone with mixed reactions, but mostly I've seen some angry comments and many were disappointed with how it ended. Still so many plot holes and after 7 years, you would think we have all of our questions answered. Here are 10 questions we still want answers to:



1. What happened to Aria's brother?

2. Why wasn't he at the wedding?

3. Why did the horse figure out it wasn't Spencer before her own friends?

4. When Ezra first met Aria at the bar, he knew she was Ali's friend. Did he know Aria's true age then or did he not find out that Ali was a teenager?

5. What happened to Melissa?

6. How did Spencer kill Wren?

7. Did Alison and Emily find out that Wren is the father of their children?

8. Who was Bethany Young?

9. Who was "he" when the girls came running into Ali's classroom saying "he's coming".

10. Who kidnapped the girls during the Dollhouse episode?



I'm really upset about the endi…

Ryan Seacrest Spotted With An Old Flame

Ryan Seacrest was spotted with his ex-girlfriend Shayna Taylor in Venice going for a bike ride. Shayna is a model and personal chef, so she's not only beautiful, but very successful. The possible couple broke up 2 years ago, but it looks like things may be back on. They were all smiles while out on the town with their bikes and even stopped for a bite to eat. It's reported that Shayna was his date to a friend's wedding over Thanksgiving weekend.
