The Inspiring Heroines of Film

Sadly, it has become a trend to label girls as “bossy” if they assert themselves. Whether it is in school or work, if a girl is “in charge” she is at risk of being labeled as bossy. The Ban Bossy campaign is ready to inspire girls to be leaders and to not be afraid of being in charge. You can visit the campaign’s website and make the pledge to Ban Bossy. Inspired by the Ban Bossy Campaign we have complied a list of some of the strongest and fearless women in film. Hermione Granger: Books and cleverness are not the only things that make up Hermione’s strong personality. Harry’s right-hand witch is also brave (duh she is in Gryffindor). She is willing to help her friends no matter what the cost. She never gives up on Harry and is always there to help him and save the rest of the wizard world. I love Hermione. She is strong and never gives up. She is a girl who uses her brains, and let’s face it, Harry would …

We Can’t Get Enough of Rixton

What’s your music playlist looking like right now? Ours? Well we are crushing major on Rixton and patiently awaiting the arrival of their debut album Let the Road on March 2, 2015. Currently touring the UK, the talented quartet are sure to gain even more popularity when they hit the road with Ariana Grande on her Honeymoon Tour in February of next year. Rixton finally released their much anticipated music video for “Wait on Me” this month. The charming gentlemen suited up for a steaming 1920s inspired affair with thrilling love triangles and mobster scenes. With a constantly busy schedule, from interviews to live performances, we are still playing catch up on all things Rixton. Since we last talked about them, Rixton has taken over the U.S. audience from their performances on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” to the Teen Choice Awards. We had no doubt that these four would be a mega hit with their smooth vocals that remind us of Adam Levine and dope beats that make us sway until the sun comes up. By …

Growing Up Duggar: A Look into the Life of the Duggar Girls.

The review! Imagine what it would be like to grow up in a family of 19 children. Pretty crowed, probably. For the four eldest daughters of the Duggar clan it involves house work, insecurities, and saving themselves for marriage. While I do not share the same religious or political beliefs as the Duggar Family (the Duggars are Independent Baptists) I have been known to binge watch a season when it marathons on TLC, and by the fifth episode I can recite all 19 names and guess if Jinger’s hair will be curly or straight during the episode. But the new book by Jana, Jill, Jessa, and Jinger (yup Ginger with a J), delves deeper into the lives of the Duggar family and the pressures that the girls face growing up in such a large family. “Growing Up Duggar: It’s All About Relationships” sheds light on their relationships with their parents, siblings, boys and with God. But the book doesn’t seem like it was written by the girls. Many Amazon users claim that it was written by …

First Listen: Hear Ed Sheeran SING!

Flame-haired British singer, Ed Sheeran, recently released a new single from his upcoming sophomore album “X” (read as multiply). The single titled “Sing” shows a different and sexier side of Sheeran. Teaming up with Pharrell Williams, the song is less acoustic and more funk. Sheeran even raps a bit on the track! Plus his falsetto gives Justin Timberlake a run for his money! Here are some of the lyrics from the hit. “I need you darling, come on set the tone/ If you feel you’re fallin’, won’t you let me know/ Oh oh oh/ If you love me, come on get involved/ Feel it rush in through you from your head to toe,” Sheeran hit it big with his debut album “+” and the Grammy-nominated song “A Team.” Most of Sheeran’s songs are soft, romantic, and dish about falling in love. Sheeran’s album will be released June 23rd! Check out the full audio version of “Sing” in the meantime! By Ashley DeLuce

The Little Mermaid is Swimming to the Big Screen!

The Little Mermaid is coming to theaters…Again! But this time the fairy tale romance of our favorite crimson haired siren and her Prince Charming will be told in an exciting live action version. Disney is already making Sleeping Beauty come to life this spring, however, it will be told from the evil sorceress Maleficent’s (played by Angelina Jolie) point of view. So why not do the same for the other Disney Princesses? Director, Sofia Coppola, is taking on this project adventurous. This is totally different from her other films like The Bling Ring, 2013 and Marie Antoinette, 2006. The movie has no set release date, but that doesn’t stop fans from speculating which actress will slip into Ariel’s purple seashell bra. So far the #1 fan pick is Emma Watson. She has already worked with Coppola so our guesses may not be too far off. Some of the actresses rumored to be up for the role are Amy Adams, Anna Kendrick, Emma Watson, and Sophie Turner. So who would you love to see play Ariel? By Ashley DeLuce

Music Crush; Jasmine V.

Long before Bieber had Selena, there was Jasmine V. She played the love interest in Justin’s music video for his first single “Baby.” Now Jasmine is taking center stage to breakout in the music industry without being known as the “girl from the ‘Baby’ video.” She is ready to prove that she can be an artist of her own and we love it! 20-year-old Jasmine Villegas signed with Sony Records at the age of 16. Currently signed to Interscope Records, Jasmine is working on her debut album, which is rumored to be released this spring! This budding artist is not afraid to speak her mind and belt out topics of cheating, dating and having fun, but of course all in a tasteful way. Her song “Werk” is a fun girl power anthem. In the hit, Jasmine sings about how guys need to work to be with her. She won’t easily give in and he has to prove himself to her.  Talk about positive independence and self-awareness! Jasmine’s impact is evident by her popularity on social media. …
