Southern Charm: Hilton Headache

Thirteen Thoughts I have after watching SC: Hilton Headache (Season 5, Ep 9):

1.) Ashley is mentally unstable and downright evil.

A Psycho

Obviously from prior episodes, I was beginning to gather that Ashley was…well, unhinged.  However, the beginning scene of this episode, which picks up from where it left off last week, just proves how much of a psychotic, narcissistic bitch Ashley actually is.  The vile things that she said about Kathryn – her parenting, her children – are just things that you do not say.  Especially when you are literally just the girlfriend  of what, 3 months? How fucking dare she.

2.) Kathryn, Naomie, Danni & Chelsea = #SQUADGOALS

giphy.gif

Seriously, I love these girls.  They have had Kathryn’s back all season, and Hilton Head is no exception.

3.) Danni should be a full time cast member.

danni

Why isn’t she?  Has Danni not proved how much she is actually needed on this show?  Between telling T-Rav to “shut her the fuck up” in regards to Ashley’s antics, or pulling him aside and berating him for not sticking up for his baby Mama, Danni has proved time and time again she needs to be a full time cast member.  When Danni freaks out on Ashley and says something along the lines of “we don’t want you to sit with us”, I had total Mean Girls flashbacks.  Yaaaaassss, Danni!

4.) Naomie should also be a full time cast member.

Naomieeee

Naomie has also proved she needs to be a full time cast member.  I’m living for her subtle yet apparent attitude this season.  Between her eye rolls, her snide remarks, and general IDGAF attitude, she clearly needs to be here all the time.  Take note, Andy.

5.) Kathryn has clearly come a long way.

KD

I am so proud of Kathryn.  She has grown so much, it’s so clear from her behavior this entire season, and especially this episode.  The fact that she held herself together and endured all of the horrible things Ashley said without doing something regrettable speaks volumes.  I honestly cannot say I would do the same in Kathryn’s position.  I wanted to attack Ashley through the screen!  The “old” Kathryn would not have been able to keep her composure like she did tonight.  #TeamKathryn always.

6.) Thomas is THE WORST.

TRAV

I’ve known this before tonight, however, if I ever forgot, for even a moment, Thomas made sure that I remembered tonight just how much I actually despise him.  I mean, Jesus Christ!  Like Danni said – “SHUT HER THE FUCK UP!”  I couldn’t believe he didn’t pull Ashley away sooner.  You let someone talk to the mother of your children like that?  I loathe him. Not to mention, the way he spoke to Chelsea on the ferry was completely uncalled for.

7.) I kind of want Chelsea & Austen to get back together.

Au and Ch2

I know, wtf – am I crazy?  Something about their little one on one gave me all the feels though!  I know Austen pulled Chelsea aside to tell her that he was dating Victoria, but you can tell that they’re just not going to last.  (I had this premonition before Victoria dumped him because of Naomie’s instagram story – the picture that Victoria claims Chelsea is “kissing Austen’s shoulder” – so dramatic.)

8.) Craig is literally the comic relief of the show, without even trying to be.

Craig

The stuff Craig says legit kills me.  I love when he tells Kathryn that she kept it together because “she’s sober and crushing life”.  And all of the girls are like “uhhh….” and Craig was like “What? It’s a compliment.”  Or how he gets unreasonably angry at Naomie when she says that she bets he won’t get up in the AM to cook them breakfast.  Or when he tells Kathryn that her and Ashley have something in common – they both didn’t use birth control while sleeping with Thomas.  Or when he’s getting dressed and he’s upset because he “ran out of clothes” even though it’s only Day 2, and he talks to himself in the mirror and pretends not to care even though he really does.  I could go on forever.  Oh Craig, I love you. LOL.

9.) Shep has seen the light.

Shep

The boys don’t typically take sides in any of the fights that involve the girls, but I’m so glad that Shep has finally seen the light and now realizes what a horrible human being Ashley is.  Between their convo at the bar, and then their “chat” back at the house (where Ashley is irrationally arrogant, and keeps saying, “good talk, good talk”) Shep has finally seen her for the bitchy girl she really is.  He tells the girls that he hates her.  Thank you Shep!

10.) Whitney is a shit-stirrer.

W

Ok, I really do love Whitney, and I was so glad he was at the table during the Ashley/Kathryn fight because he definitely had Kathryn’s back.  However, he’s still such a shit-stirrer.  He couldn’t wait to get onto the ferry and get Thomas going – telling him that Chelsea said Ashley couldn’t stay in the house if Kathryn wasn’t comfortable with it.  He knew that would set him off.  I mean, I get it.  He is a producer, he’s gotta keep those ratings.

11.) T-Rav & TrAshley are the couple that makes everyone around them uncomfortable.

Gross.jpg

Can you guys not creepily make out on the ferry while you’re basically making eye contact with everyone else?  Gag.  Every scene with them is just super awkward.  We don’t want to see your gross PDA, thanks. And enough with that Bonnie and Clyde shit.  “It’s you and me against the world, baby.”  I can’t.

12.) Ashley is delusional.

Crazy

I know this obviously goes along with Ashley being mentally unstable.  But her delusions are endless.  “Just because you give birth to something does not make you a mother.”  Uh, yes, actually, it does.  Just because you’ve been dating a 50 year old “convicted felon” (just reiterating her own words) for 3 months does not make you a step-mother.  She also doesn’t see anything wrong with her actions.  She believes she is totally in the right for the horrible stuff she said.  Thank you for showing your true colors.  Delusional AF.

13.) Thomas still wants Kathryn.

KandT

Could it be any more obvious?  He goes on and on to Whitney, saying how impressed he was by Kathryn’s self control.  He’s also been making comments here and there that are inappropriate.  When they’re ordering drinks (may have been from last weeks episode)  Thomas keeps making some comment about ordering a redhead.  Awkward.  He also makes many references to Ashley about Kathryn’s luggage and riding boots he bought for her.  Also awkward.

Until next week….

A Sunday well spent brings a week of content!

Sunday

 

 

I had so many different topics I had wanted to blog about this week, but I was seriously exhausted every night after work.  I also did not want to be anywhere near a computer screen after staring at one for eight straight hours every day.  Going back to work was rough after vacation.  I had a lot of catching up to do.  I was really excited to see Kirsten, though! All in all, it was just a super emotional week.  By Friday, everything was good, and I was thrilled that things seemed to be getting back to normal.

I had a relaxing weekend.  (My favorite kind. 😛 )  I really didn’t feel well Friday (I’ve been getting horrible headaches….I don’t know if it’s allergies, or the fact that I need a new prescription for my glasses, or that I never wear my glasses…or all three), but I ended up falling asleep at 7:30 PM on Friday night.  Accidentally.  I woke up at 6:15 AM Saturday so confused.  I spent the entire day on Saturday at the beach, which is always my favorite.  I am so looking forward to Fall, but I am going to miss beach days.

Today (Sunday) I spent with Melly.  We went shopping.  Like I just said, I’m so excited for Fall!  Pumpkin flavored EVERYTHING is already starting to come out.  Halloween decor has  been on display in majority of store windows.  Mel & I went to Home Goods in Westford, it was seriously amazing.  I found the cutest fall decor.  I got new organizational items for my office, which I’ll talk about in another post!  I also have been scouring Pinterest for cute fall outfits, and then trying to replicate them.  (I got the most amazing sweater today, that I plan to wear with skinny jeans and my new boots (that are currently waiting to be picked up at DSW) when I go apple picking.

FallLoVeBoots

 

Anyway, I’m really getting off track here.  (My ability to focus on anything at all this past week has been horrible.  Easily distracted would be an understatement…especially by pretty things.)  My point of this blog post is, that “A Sunday well spent brings a week of content!”  I’m ready for a new week, a fresh start, and to accomplish some goals.

 

Weekly Goals

 

1.  Go to the gym twice!  (This may seem like a lame goal, but I’ve been making excuses as to why I “can’t” work out.  So yes, two times for me this week, Tuesday & Thursday to be exact, is a reasonable goal for me right now!)

2.  EAT HEALTHY! STICK TO WW.  (This should be easy.  I’ve prepped my meals, and Saul is making our own version of “South West Chicken” in the crock pot for dinner this week.  It’s healthy, and I love it!)

3. Write, write, write!  (I have been slacking.  With blogging, and my book!)  A good goal for this week would be to write two blog posts, and to write two chapters of my story. 

4.  Read three chapters in the book I’m currently reading.  (I’m reading The Girls, by Emma Cline.  It’s disturbing right now.  But I’ve read great reviews on it, so we will see.)

5.  Make a cleaning schedule.  (I want to come up with a weekly cleaning schedule, that way when I go to do my “deep cleans” on a Saturday it won’t feel like so much work.  I just really hate doing house work during the week!  I’m okay with little tasks, like a load of laundry or the dishes, but the last thing I want to do when I get out of work is clean.  I just feel so much better when the house is sparkling.)

6. Create a budget.  (I’ve been saying I wanted to do this for a while. Every time I attempt to, I realize I’m poor, and then I don’t want to face reality so I ignore it.  But I need to do one this week.  It’s time!)

That’s pretty much it! I’ll let you know how it goes! 🙂

TOP TEN | Favorite Females

 

 

  1. Britney Spears

bquote

“I’m miss American Dream since I was 17” – need I say more? Brit is absolutely fabulous.   For someone who is constantly in the spotlight, her every move being scrutinized and critiqued, she is so sweet and modest.  Brit is known as the “Princess of Pop”.  She has won a plethora of awards – a Grammy, six MTV VMA’s, MTV”s Lifetime Achievement Award, ten Billboard Music awards, the Billboard Millennium Award, and a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.  Brit has sold 100 million albums worldwide, and over 100 million singles.  Talk about an accomplishment!

To See Brit struggle in 2007 was heartbreaking. I’ll never forget seeing her picture on the front page of some stupid tabloid, shaving her head.  My heart broke for her. She was clearly going through some personal struggles-  couldn’t everyone just leave her alone and let her be?  I couldn’t even begin to imagine my life under a microscope like that.  It makes me anxious to even think about it.   Despite her hardships, though, Brit bounced back, like all of her true fans knew she would.  Even while she was going through her own issues, she released Blackout in 2007, her fifth album.  To this day, it’s still my favorite album of hers.  It’s like a “I don’t give a fuck” album.  She was at rock bottom, and she still slayed.

Since 2007, Britney has only risen and grown in everything she has done.  She has full custody of her children, who are adorable and clearly love their wonderful mom.  She’s released 3 more albums, with a 4th on the way! (You can pre-order Glory on iTunes now!  It comes out 8/26/16!)  Her Vegas Show has been nothing but extremely successful, and I couldn’t be prouder or happier for Brit!  She’s amazing.  I admire her strength, her ambition and her dedication.  She is truly an inspiration.

 

 2. Ashley Graham

 

 

bodypOsitiv

I didn’t really discover Ashley until the Fall of 2015, though she has been modeling since 2001.  In 2016, Ash was the first “Plus Size” (hate that term!!) model to appear on the cover of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue.  Since I started following Ashley, I’ve been a little bit obsessed.  She exudes self confidence in everything she does.  She promotes self-love and body positivity.  She is exactly what this generation needs.  She looks fabulous in her bikini, and she shows girls everywhere to be proud of your body, regardless of your size!  Love her!  Fuck yo thigh gap. 😛

 

3. Iskra Lawrence

c60f5cd4a5dab668742aa294271d7a94

Like Ashley, I recently discovered Iskra Lawrence through Instagram, though she has been modeling since 2008.  Iskra is most famous for modeling for Aerie, American Eagle Outfitters Lingerie Line.  I love Iskra because she is all for Body Positivity, and has no problem calling out body shamers.  She refuses to retouch her Instagram photos – they are Au Naturale, just like her.  I love how real she is.  She doesn’t refer to herself as “plus sized.”  She’s beautiful, confident, and she doesn’t pretend to be anything she’s not.  Iskra is a refreshing face in the modeling industry!

 

4. Selena Gomez

selq

I love Selena Gomez. I’ve loved her since she played Alex Russo on Wizards of Waverely Place.  When she began her singing career, I quickly fell in love with her music, too.  After listening to Revival, I realized how much I truly admired Selena’s talent.  Revival was raw – she just let it all out there.  It was beautiful.  I think that she is a great role model for younger girls.  I look forward to seeing what else she accomplishes in the future.

 

5. Chrissy Teigen

Chrissy Teigen is someone I would want to BFF’s with.  She’s hilarious – she tells it like it is, and holds nothing back.  Her relationship with John Legend is so cute – absolutely love that pic of them when they’re in the pool, and Chrissy’s balancing a plate of chicken wings on her butt and John’s eating them.  Could you guys be any more perfect?  Their daughter, Luna, is adorable too.  They’re just such a cute little family!

Chrissy is best known for her modeling career.  She’s also a great cook, and her cookbook, Cravings, was released this year.  It was instantly a NY Times Bestseller.  I also really admire Chrissy for how open she was during her whole process with IVF.  It’s not an easy topic to talk about.  She slammed any judgemental haters as eloquently as possible.  Her bravery for speaking up for herself is truly inspiring.

 

6. Jennifer Lawrence

jlawq

I have loved JLaw since I first laid eyes on her in The Hunger Games.  Not only is she an amazing actress, but she is so real and genuine off-screen, how could you not love her?  She’s very outspoken, down to earth, and funny.  She doesn’t take herself too seriously.  She’s like the girl next door that everyone is able to relate to.  She is a huge advocate for feminism and gender equality, which is amazing.  She has openly admitted that she is pro-choice, which gives her more points in my book. She is the founder of the Jennifer Lawrence Foundation, which supports various charities and organizations.  She uses her fame for good – she truly wants to help people.  If more women were like Jennifer in Hollywood, the world would be a better place.

 

7. Emilia Clarke

EMMM

Emilia Clarke is best known for her role on Game of Thrones, as Khaleesi, Mother of Dragons.  It wasn’t until I saw her play Louisa Clarke, however, in Me Before You, that I truly noticed her.  Emilia was amazing in the film, and I was surprised I hadn’t really seen her before.

Emilia has debuted on Broadway on Holly Golightly, in Breakfast at Tiffany’s, in 2015.  She was also named Esquire’s Sexiest Woman Alive the same year.  She was offered the role of Anastasia Steele in 50 Shades of Grey, but she declined, due to the amount of nudity that was required.  I believe that fact alone says a lot about her character and the kind of person she is.  Emilia is beautiful, inside and out.  She’s a fabulous actress, and I’m excited to see her in more films in the future.

 

8. Reese Witherspoon

Reese

Reese Witherspoon has been acting since 1991.  I feel like I grew up with her, though she’s 13 years older than me.  Majority of my favorite movies star her, however, and I’ve always thought she was just the cutest, sweetest, Southern Belle.  Not only is she a fabulous actress, but she’s a wonderful mother, too.  Reese owns her own production company, Pacific Standard.  She has won an Academy Award, a Golden Globe Award, and the Critics Choice Award for best actress, along with others.  She also has a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Not only is Reese extremely successful, but she is really involved in children’s and women’s advocacy organizations, which I love and admire.  She is an avid reader, which just makes me love her more.  Reese is adorable.  She is always looking for ways to help.  Her positive attitude is refreshing and lovely.

 

9. Lana Del Rey

LDRQ

I started listening to Lana Del Rey’s music in 2013, and I instantly fell in love.  Her voice was phenomenal, her lyrics were beautiful, and they had so much power and meaning behind them.  Growing up, she wanted to be a poet, which is something I can relate to, and immediately made me like her even more.  Lana has volunteered at homeless youth and drug & alcohol outreach programs, which I also find admirable.  She is kindhearted.

Her musical style is unique, and her songs really speak to me.  I can listen to her music no matter what kind of mood I am in.  I’ve said before, I feel like I relate to Lana on a spiritual level.  I read quotes of hers from magazines, and I just get her.  She’s a sad soul, in a way.  But it’s beautiful.  I adore her. She had a quick rise to fame, but that fame never got to her head, the way it does to so many others.

 

10. Lady Gaga

715685a4afa83fd18e380f7e611dec62

Last but not least, is the Lovely Lady Gaga.  Lady Gaga is an absolute Queen.  She does whatever the hell she wants, and she doesn’t care what you think.  She wears her heart on her sleeve.  She’s real, she’s genuine.  She is passionate about her beliefs.  I went to her concert in 2014.  I was so inspired. I love how much she promotes gender equality.  Listening to her at her concert, I realized why so many people loved her so much. She was just so amazing, so understanding.  She truly loves her fans!  It was so beautiful to get to see that.

Not only is she an amazing singer, but she absolutely slays at acting. She killed it in American Horror Story last season, and I cannot wait until the new season premieres in September!  She recently broke off her engagement with Taylor Kinney, and she posted the saddest Instagram shortly after, about how they believed that they were soul mates, but they were going through some stuff.  She’s human, like the rest of us.  She’s not afraid to share her feelings or show her sensitivity.  I think that is a truly beautiful trait in person.  Lady Gaga is entertaining, a fantastic performer.  You’re crazy if you don’t like her! 😛
