Rihanna Took My Advice!

Hello heart breakers! Rihanna has been spotted rocking a rasta inspired do'. The pop singer took the stage at last night's American Idol finale sporting her signature shaved sides, bangs, and dreadlocks pulled into a ponytail. If you follow my blog, then you know I suggested back in February that Rihanna give up her blonde wigs/weave and try dreadlocks instead. She listened! Well, probably not to MY advice literally, but thank God she decided to go in a different direction with her hair. It is wayyyy better than those tired styles she has been rocking for the past few years

Here's the look without the bangs:

And here she is with the bangs:

While I think this is a positive change for her, I think I would have preferred it without the bangs. The bangs take away from the look. I know she has a huge forehead and all, but I think she could pull off the look sans the bangs and it would look way better. Right now she has too much going on. I think she could also wear the locks in her signature red color or even in black with a brown or blonde ombre effect on the tips. That would be super cute! I wish more celebs would step away from "safe" weaves and switch it up. Nicki minaj tried dreads for a music video and they were soooo cute. However, she didn't wear them after filming the video. 

But anywho, it will be interesting to see how Rihanna changes up this style. She usually starts with something and then tweaks it until it is right. Let's hope :)

Hello heartbreakers! It has been forever since I posted a hair review on here for you guys. Sheesh, I've been so behind on this blog, but I am definitely working to catch up. Anywho, so here is a review of a half wig that I did back in December 2011. It's the super cute kinky/curly "Morning Glory" wig by Glance.  Check out my review and pictures below. Feel free to leave in questions in the comment section....toodles.  :)

I'm Ready for "Glee" to Exit Stage Left!

Hello heart breakers! I am back with sort of a mini rant. As some of you might already know, I am quite a fan of the performing arts. I have been involved in theatre, dance, music and etc for most of my life. So when the hit show "Glee" came along in 2009 I was immediately hooked! I remember seeing the commercials for the show months before it aired and I was so excited by the idea of a show featuring kids who were into the arts. I was a "Gleek" before "Gleeks" were even thought of lol. I watched the pilot episode and the show lived up to my expectations. I even convinced my hubby to watch a few! Season one was amazing and I liked where the show was going. Well, everything except for the writers basically setting up Will Schuester(Glee Club Director) to cheat on and eventually leave his wife. I am not down with cheaters and I always hoped he and his wife would get over her "cray cray" antics and move on...sigh.

Anywho, the show had killer performances and a concept that many didn't have at the time. It was a great way to bring the theater/musical aspect to a TV show. If not done the right way, this kind of concept would have come off as too cheesy and would have been canned after season one. I'm sure you all are wondering why I think the show should be cancelled. Well, after season two the show went in a different direction. It became too geared towards pleasing the masses with stunts and etc.It was obvious that the producers were willing to do anything to get the ratings up. The writing reflected this, and the show started to resemble all of the other trendy teenage shows out there. If I wanted to see cheesy fluff, I would of just watched "Gossip Girl" or one of those other generic shows instead.

I knew the show would never be the same once they started allowing big celebrities to be featured. The focus was on Britney Spears, Madonna and etc...not the actual characters and plot. People were more excited to see the celebrity of the week. The show lost it's spunk and became nothing more than a stereotypical commercialized hot mess full of gimmicks! It was recently announced that the show will be returning for a 4th season. However, most of the main characters are graduating this year, so it will be interesting to see if the producers will try to keep the show going. Perhaps they will pull a "Degrassi" and just introduce new 9th grade characters to keep the show alive. Either way, I don't see the show making it past season four, and I hope they hang up their choir robes for good. In the end I feel like Tyra Banks did when she went off on that contestant named Tiffany during eliminations at America's Next Top Model. I was rooting for you "Glee," we were all rooting for you. LOL.
