It's May, my Birthday month! May tends to be such a reflective month and this year is no different.

I can't believe I'm 25 years old... 10 years ago at 15 I discovered my love for entertainment reporting and never looked back. It's crazy to look back to see what I've done and think of what I want to do.

25 is the age where I plan to focus on me, myself and I. I'm starting a new journey of becoming self-aware, more positive and living a more authentic life. I'm super keen to share everything on here.

Remain awesome,

Zendaya to play Aaliyah

So, as we all know now, Disney darling Zendaya Coleman will be portraying Aaliyah in a new Lifetime movie about her tragically short life. I, personally, couldn't ask for a better young actress to portray the legendary music star. Though, on the internet, not everybody feels the same way. Many people are questioning whether Zendaya has the acting ability, vocal talent and maturity for the role. I lieveshe does. Some have gone as far to say she is too fair for the role! Ultimately, I don't believe skin tone should play such a big deal. Sure, she has starred in Disney Channel shows and movies, but so did a ton of other really great actors and actresses. Should I name a few? Justin Timberlake, and America Ferrera. Judging her for having her break on Disney is probably one of the silliest things a couch critic could do. Zendaya is Hollywood's current fashion 'it' girl...

2014 Oscars Fashion Recap

Who watched the 2014 Oscars live last night? I did, due to having to do a live blog for work on DStv.com. I could not sleep so I decided to catch the live red carpet on E! instead. I love watching Giuliana Rancic interview all of the celebs – as you all know, I really look up to her. She looked like an absolute princess and her dress was definitely a top favourite of mine for the night. I also thought the Oscar winning, Lupita Nyong’o looked incredible too.

As always, I gathered some photos from around the interwebz of my fave outfits of the night to share with you guys Check them out after the jump!

2014 Golden Globes Awards Fashion

The 2014 Golden Globes happened yesterday/this morning (depending on where in the world you live). I would really love to one day attend this awards show because a number of the best actors, performers and industry professionals are in attendances. One day, right?
Well, of course I was absolutely excited to see who wore what and such – as we all normally are. Hunger Games actress, Jennifer Lawrence looked beautiful as she usually does (I definitely need to do a blog post specifically about her). Modern Family co-stars, Ariel Winter and Sarah Hyland (who went for some extra bold brows) looked stunning. Taylor Swift can do no wrong on the red carpet and she looked like a modern-day princess as always. Then, there was Emma Watson; great dress colour but the style was a bit questionable… I was not too keen on what she wore at all – were you?
I grabbed a few photos from across the media interwebz for you guys – find them after the jump.
What did you thing about the fashion on the 2014 Golden Globes red carpet? Loved it or hated it?

Ali Lohan to Pursue a Music Career?

When word got out that Lindsay Lohan's young sister, Aliana 'Ali' Lohan would be getting back into music, I was so excited! In 2008 when I was 15 years old she released a single All The Way Around which I loved but sadly I don't recall her album ever coming out afterwards. Oh wait, let's not forget about Lohan Holiday (Google it if you have no idea about what I'm talking about - most South Africans won't). Three weeks ago Ali uploaded a YouTube video of her singing Beautiful by Christina Aguilera. Seriously, she did an incredible job! Her voice has definitely improved a lot from a few years ago when she was very young: it's a lot more mature and stronger. She reminds me of Lorde and Adele and maybe a bit of Gabrielle Cilmi too. I wish she would cover a few of my favourite songs like maybe Roar...

Ariana Grande x Cosmopolitan

You all know I love Ariana Grande – before she got so huge and now everyone’s like ‘omg, I totally love her!’. I really enjoy her music; she’s got a beautiful voice and I adore her style. I’m so happy she landed two major magazine covers for February 2014: Teen Vogue and Cosmopolitan. She look icredible in Cosmo so I decided to share the photos below. I can’t wait to read the interview with her even though it’s a tad bit dated because she’s no longer with The Wanted’s Nathan Sykes.
More photos after the jump. #TeamAri

DEMI

Have I ever told you guys that I love Demi Lovato? I love her style. I love her music. I love her personality and I am inspired by her life story.With Demi recently announcing her return back to The X Factor as a judge and releasing a teaser for her new self-titled album releasing mid-May, I felt it fitting to talk about my adoration for one of Disney"s ex-teen princesses. I am not going to sit here, type this out and tell you "OMG, I love Demi Lovato - always have and always will.". I did not. When i first noticed her in Disney Channel's Original Movie, Camp Rock I remember thinking "ugh, another little Disney princess - bleh". I enjoyed some of her music but still preferred Selena Gomez and Miley Cyrus. I watched Sonny With A Chance occasionally and started to have more 'tolerance' towards Demi. I Then really got in to her...

Musical Ambition

Oh hey there, I'm back! Yay! I won't bore you with all the details of where I have been, but if you follow me on Twitter then you'll know about how sick I have been, stressed out and lately just all over the place. Blogging had to take a back-seat, but now I'm back with my lists, ramblings and celebrity rants. In the next few days I'll be updating the blog a  bit but nothing too major - don't get alarmed. Right now, as I type this, I am listening to the latest album from Taylor Swift titled 'Red'. I'm a huge fan of hers; I love her music and equally love her sense of style. Her music is quite wonderful and is def pretty sounds for your ears. I'm sure that this album will be on repeat for a while - it's country with pop elements. I want to do a...

QUICK TIP: Mascara Resi-Don’t

Hey guys! I hope you all are well. I attended the Vodacom Durban July on Saturday and it was quite an expereince, but I left very early so in all honesty, it did not turn out the way I wanted it to. I could have covered the event so much better, but we can't all be perfect each and every time, right? The highlight of my day was finally meeting the amazing, beautiful, stunning, gorgeous and perfect Jeannie D from Top Billing and getting a quick interview with her - she's Africa's Giuliana Rancic. Oh my word, she's just wonderful. Sigh, the memory of meeting her made me feel a bit better. @MishGov so wonderful meeting you yesterday! You're a great interviewer and I think u have a fine career ahead of u! ????.?????? — Jeannie D (@Jeannieous) July 8, 2012 I'll maybe talk about the July later in the week or post the link to...
