Speak Now

This summer has turned out to be pretty awesome.  Just as I was coming down from my BlogHer 11 high, I got invited to the Taylor Swift concert.  My buddy Monique from Blogs By Latinas, was invited by Covergirl to attend the concert.  She invited me to be her plus 1, we not only had great seats with a wonderful view of stage, but we also got to meet Taylor Swift!  The meet and greet back stage was a special treat, and so glad I was able to experience it.  Can’t say I was a huge of Taylor Swift fan, but after meeting her and seeing her sing live,  I am now.  First of all Taylor is a sweet heart, she greeted every fan with big hugs and smiles.  She was genuinely happy to meet us all and take pictures with everyone.  She is very beautiful young-woman, inside and out.  Taylor is an awesome performer and very talented.  Glad young girls have her as a role model, unlike some other celebrities today.  She is very positive and loved that her songs and outfits were age appropriate.  I would definitely want my daughter to be Taylor Swift fan.  Another surprise treat was Justin Bieber came on stage to sing his song “Baby” with Taylor.  The crowd was already going crazy over Taylor Swift, but when Justin came out, OMG the screaming levels went through the roof.  Holy Moly don’t think I ever want to be present for one his concerts, can’t handle it!  It was a great night, and secretly loved it, made feel like teen girl for night again….LOL

Me, Taylor and Monique back stage

Thanks Monique and Covergirl for a memorable night.  Now I am ready and pumped up for my next concert…Sade!!

Super 8…Super RAD!

Movies, I love to watch them, but with the prices nowadays seems like a luxury to go see one.  Normally I wouldn’t mind paying the price for a movie ticket, if the movie was worth it.  Don’t know about you but lately not many movies can live up to the price of admission IMO.  Its either get the tickets at Costco (which are 2 for $15.99 at either Regal or AMC) or I get my butt up early and see the 1st showing.  Most theaters have early morning specials for either the 1st movie of the day or anything before noon.  My local Cinemark has a awesome deal, 1st movie of the day is only $6, but usually starts about 10ish, am that is.  So today being I had a day off, I got up and went to see a movie.  Headed to The Pike in Long Beach to watch Super 8 at 11:30am.  By far I can say it is the best movie I have seen this year.  Good story line, with a twist and not predictable at all.  Awesome special effects and lots of action.  It was one of those good old type of movies that every one can enjoy. Totally recommend you watch it and think you will definitely enjoy it.  Won’t spoil it for you but if you do see Super 8, stay till the end and watch the credits. 😉
