Watching: ’13 Reasons Why’.
Please note, the following content may contain emotional triggers. Early last year, I read Jay Asher’s popular YA novel, “13 Reasons Why” – you can read my full review here – around the same time it debuted as a TV series on Netflix. I heard about how controversial it was, how difficult it was to […]More
‘Siesta Key’: We Need to Talk About Chloe.
We left this shit show last week with Chloe FaceTiming Alex and showing him her face, which had clearly been beaten in. As I guessed, Amanda kicked her ass for being a lil bitch when it comes to Brandon. And just like that, their friendship is over and I’m sure this cat fight is going […]More
Watching: ‘Baby Driver’.
Last Tuesday, I went straight from work to the Drafthouse to see “Baby Driver”. I had a free ticket to use, along with a free popcorn, and everyone I knew said this movie was SO good. Honestly, I wasn’t sure it was my style, but I figured I couldn’t really lose with Ansel Elgort as […]More
‘Southern Charm’: Ain’t No Thang Like a Chicken Wing.
Helloooo! I know I’m nearly a WEEK late on my “Southern Charm” recap – I did watch it last Monday night while I was in Indiana, and missed being able to write about it immediately after. But it’s finally here! You may recall at the end of the previous episode, Landon’s behavior toward Kathryn pretty […]More
A sunless, summer glow.
That’s right, I’ve been trying SO many different kinds of sunless tanners and bronzers ever since I got home from Vegas. I’ll be honest, I have always loved laying out in the sun. Even in high school, I’d lay out in my backyard (no pool present), complete with Sun-In in my hair (which looked really […]More
A Review: ‘The Search for Everything’.
I’m so excited for today – a new semester of my Blog Class kicks off at UT – plus, we’re halfway through the week! I know I was pret-ty skeptical of John Mayer’s latest album a few months ago, when we were only given a measly four songs per month. But, now that it’s been […]More
‘Southern Charm’: While the Kat’s Away…
You guys! I have been looking forward to the season 4 premier of “Southern Charm” for at least a month. And last night, it happened. Sorry March Madness, I have more important matters to tend to. Because of my excitement, I’ve decided “Southern Charm” will be my next series to review/recap each week – hope […]More
Thoughts on ‘La La Land’.
Last week, my mom and I ventured to the Drafthouse to see “La La Land”! We were both pretty excited to see this movie, having both been fans of musicals since forever, and well, who doesn’t love Emma Stone? Sorry, I’m not huge on Mr. Gosling (and this is when everyone stops reading). But anyway, […]More
Wake up, San Francisco: ‘Fuller House’ season 2.
My best friend Sheena has brought us the real meaning of Christmas in another review of “Fuller House”, this time for its second season. Check out her review of season one, here. And let us know what you thought of season two! Earlier this year when I sat down to watch Fuller House season one […]More
Episodes 5: ‘Divorce’ & ‘Insecure’.
Good morning! I definitely stayed up writing this entire post last night, and scheduled it to publish, and when I woke up, I see that it published with no words or phots… so there’s the wonder of technology on this Monday morning! I spent most of my weekend at dance rehearsal, as I performed in […]More
Chesapeake Shores: episode 7.
At the start of the episode, it appears there’s a new guy in town and he doesn’t know what a “Lending Library” is, so there’s that. He’s chatting it up with Abby’s sister, and although doesn’t give his name, he says he cooks at Sally’s (the neighborhood spot). Back at the house, Connor throws Abby’s […]More
You Got it, Dude: The ‘Fuller House’ review.
My great friend Sheena agreed to write a review of “Fuller House” for The Bitter Lemon in trade for SnapChats of me singing the theme song. So, I present to you, a complete review of “Fuller House”: I know I can’t be the only one that rushed home Friday evening (read: left work early) to […]More
