NSYNC performance. It just brought you back to the days of having their posters on your wall and you jumping up and down on your bed when their videos came on TV and JT was just amazing. They all looked great to.

Lady Gaga the opening act. I was so excited. I love the new song. She looked amazing. That body was on point and she was just as crazy, wild and her performance was amazing. I also loved her gays dancing with her. AAHHHHH just perfection.

THE BAD

Ok so I guess everyone decided to wear the same thing to the awards this year in different ways then? Because all I saw last night was jewels, feathers and lace. Not to mention 2-Chainz looked better in the Versace print pants both he and Grimes wore and I still hated the outfits.

It was so hard to choose some outfits that I loved just for the lack there of. Here were my top 5 best and top 5 worst outfits of the night.

Best

Ciara looked beautiful and showed off her body in her Givenchy Couture feathered gown.

Ellie Goulding. Her dress was amazing for the simple fact it was different, not sheer, see through or lace, lol. The spiked, floor length number with high slit looked beautiful.

Ariana Grande in her Kenly Collins little floral mini was pretty and age appropriate.

Jennifer Hudson (pictured with Adam Lambert who looks sharp btw) looked lovely on the VMA red carpet in a Dior top and skirt. Very nice and well put together. Not as glam as some but hey it’s not feathers, lace or see through lol.

Mary Lambert. Lambert looked beautiful in a floor length sparkly gown.

Worst

Snooki and J Wow. I’m assuming they went prom dress shopping together? Oh wait that’s right it wasn’t a high school prom. You ladies have come a long way with your style but come on.

Iggy Azalea. She’s a beautiful woman but I was so tired of the lace, sheer, and everything else I just couldn’t deal. Her Emilio Pucci sheer gown matched her hair and skin tone on the VMA red carpet. Not a winner for me.

Miley Cyrus. I’m guessing with her new changes and her performance that night she was so excited she just threw on whatever was shiny and jeweled to stand out in the crown? Her Dolce & Gabbana outfit was not a hit with me.

Erin Wasson. I mean really, do I even have to say why she was on this list? It looked like she literally put on a black bandeau top and black boyshorts and slipped on a sheer curtain. She topped that off with a Givenchy turban.

Rita Ora. Some may have been a fan of her Alex Vauthier dress but I can hardly say the same. This feathered long-sleeved gown with white fabric in the front and that black band. I just wasn’t a fan at all.

THE WTF?!

Miley Cyrus Performance

Now I have no problem with growth and change but for real though what was up with that performance and those outfits?!

Teddy bear baiting suit
Nude bathing suit
Jeweled Red Carpet pantsuit catastrophe

I’m just saying and why in the world are you grabbing a married mans crotch and twerkin on him when his wife is clearly in the audience? The tongue all out, the whole time bro really?! The facial expressions in the crowd just said it all, I mean really.

Taylor Swift and Selena Gomez

I mean really yes they both looked pretty last night. I’ll skip over the fact that they both wore navy gowns which just reminds me at how young they are. It’s like matching with your best friend on a night out but whatever. I’ll go right to the fact that I thought it was the Taylor and Selena show because the cameras panned to them literally the entire show. Like OMG we get it they are there, but really? Do I have to look at their facial expressions through every single performance?! So many other celebrities I wanted to see that night and all I could see was the same circle of people the entire night. MTV get it together next time.

Well that was all for my take on the 2013 Video Music Awards. What were your best and worst moments of the night?

Always Remember Your Beautiful!

RIP Angel

I would just like to take the time and say RIP to Talia Joy. She fought hard and ended her battle with cancer at 11:22 am.

Prayers go out to her family and in the hopes we can fight to end cancer one day. Talia was an inspiration and such a sweetheart with so much spunk and excitement for the beauty community.

Let’s all take a moment and remember this beautiful angel. I think Talia would definitely agree with my closing today. :0)

Always Remember Your Beautiful!

Sleepless Heartbreak

I’ve never felt pain like this. A constant battle with your heart and soul. Something you thought was so right be so wrong. Just one day or night could change your whole life. You thought for good but it was for bad. There is no butterfly effect. No time machine. No magic to make you forget. The thing that’s hurts most is you’ll be fine. You’ll forget about me but I won’t forget about you. No matter how hard I try. That’s my curse, the only magic trick I know. Is to never forget and to never let go. So should I just pretend. Until it all turns true. Should I just act like I never knew you. If I keep repeating it. Will it be for real. So one day ill wake up and my heart will heal.

The Downside to Life

OMG I’M STARVING!!! I screamed. Looking in my moms kitchen. There’s nothin to eat. All health crap but not even the good kind. Down to the damn health toast and organic sugar granules. I need to go grocery shopping for myself ASAP. Ever since I made the decision to move back to my moms to save up some money for a house and get another car it’s been like slow torture. Sharing a car with a 19 year old who feels like she knows everything and has no real responsibility just makes me want to tear my hair out. Don’t get me started on her driving. Dear God I need my own car again asap. This isn’t New York so its not like I could just hail a cab or take the train, which I would gladly do if I could. I won’t make it to the age of 28 with this kind of crap going on. Just a cautionary tale to all. When you move out of your moms house, DON’T GO BACK!!

Lock Smith

I just wanna wake up and be in love. Feel free, be excited like I use to. I don’t want everyday to be a struggle. I want that one thing. That one feeling. That one touch. I don’t get that and I can see why others do but not for me. Everyday is hard. It’s like time is standing still waiting for me to crack the code. But wait cause I forgot how to pick the lock.

Always yours,
Lola

Our Goodbye

It’s like a movie with no ending or a song with no hook. You keep going back and forth but nothing gets done. Feelings stay hurt, the hero never comes. All that’s left to do is turn around and run. Everybody’s right, everybody’s wrong. No one seems to stop and ask what it’s done to me. Even if your in it, even if you tried. You still wouldn’t understand whats been done to my heart. All I see is dirt roads, all I see is fields. Staring at an ending that will never appear. I can see me dying, while you watch me cry. Just pretend your happy and then you won’t be so sad. 27 candles all burned along the way. Just to light a path that isn’t going anywhere. How hard is it to focus, how hard is it to cry. Every time I tell you something, it’s not the reason why. How long will we be fighting? How long will this go on? Some people I guess were meant to just be alone. I fall in love to easy and fall out just as quick. But leaving is a different story because love turns to sympathy and regret. So hold my hand tonight and let it be the last time. I promise I’ll be gone in the morning and that will be our last goodbye.

The end

I talked to a friend. She’s married with 4 kids. She said even when her husband is being a complete dick and she wants to leave. She doesn’t have the strength. Emotionally or financially and no family to help. I don’t want to be that girl but I am. Constantly trying to make things better but they just don’t go the way I planned. I’m not happy and whether I stay in this or not. I never want to do it again. I thought love was all great. Disney really tricks you as a kid. You can be a princess almost get killed by a witch have evil step mother and sisters live in poverty and you always end up happy and living with Prince Charming in the end. BULLSHIT!! Life is not a movie obviously and there’s always a downside to life. You might get a great career and guy but then he cheats on you or beats you. You might get a slightly less motivated guy that doesn’t cheat or beats you but never wants to do better. Either way you always get fucked in the end. At least that’s always my outcome. All good things come to an end. I just know now not to expect anything from life but what I get. Relationships are just not for me. So I either try and take what I get or nothing at all. I’m never alone because of my kids. But as far a love and emotion goes I’m fucked.
