We decided we would do the poll again this year, but include a few new songs to the list and see if you change your mind and have a new song you prefer, or if “All I Want For Christmas” is still your number one. Take our poll below and try your best not to sing all the songs as you read them! Then tell us in the comments why the one you picked is your fave!

Sasha Pieterse: Bello Magazine Cover Girl

December 14th, 2014



“Pretty Little Liars” star Sasha Pieterse (who plays the infamous Alison) is this month’s cover girl for Bello Magazine! The actress spilled with the magazine about her absolutely craziest time on the set of PLL- the scene where she was buried alive!


Sasha shared,

“I get to do a lot things out of the ordinary working on the show, but being buried alive is still the craziest up to date. When they first teased that moment, it was just my hand coming out of the ground, and we did several versions of it. But for the fourth season finale I was actually buried. . .It was four in the morning, and they dug a six-foot hole and started burying me alive. It was realistic and freezing, I had sap dripping down my arm and fake lightning in my face. Of course our prop guy Adam, who was pouring all the dirt on me, thought it was the best thing ever.”


We can’t wait to pick up a December issue of Bello and read more! And we totally love the beautiful and unique photos of Sasha in the magazine. Gorgeous!


Will you be picking up an issue of Bello Magazine to read more of Sasha Pieterse‘s interview? What do you think of her cover shoot photos?

Taylor Alison Swift is celebrating her 25th birthday today! The singer was born on December 13th, 1989, in Pennsylvania. She began her love of music from the young age of 5 and released her first album, which was self titled “Taylor Swift.” The mega pop star has had one amazing year so we decided to recap the last year of her life and see what she was up to in 2014.

Disney Pixar’s “Inside Out”

December 11th, 2014

inside out

We love a good Disney Pixar movie, and the upcoming “Inside Out” looks like it will be our next favorite! The totally unique flick is centered around a girl named Riley- more specifically about Riley‘s emotions. Each of her emotions has a name, their own story, own personality and own lives!


There’s Joy, Anger, Fear, Disgust and Sadness, and you’ll fall in love with each of them during Riley‘s journey in a new town and new school. Check out the official description of “Inside Out” below!

“From an adventurous balloon ride above the clouds to a monster-filled metropolis, Academy Award-winning director Pete Docter (“Monsters, Inc.,” “Up”) has taken audiences to unique and imaginative places. In Disney Pixar’s original movie “ Inside Out,” he will take us to the most extraordinary location of all—inside the mind.

Growing up can be a bumpy road, and it’s no exception for Riley, who is uprooted from her Midwest life when her father starts a new job in San Francisco. Like all of us, Riley is guided by her emotions – Joy (Amy Poehler), Fear (Bill Hader), Anger (Lewis Black), Disgust (Mindy Kaling) and Sadness (Phyllis Smith). The emotions live in Headquarters, the control center inside Riley’s mind, where they help advise her through everyday life. As Riley and her emotions struggle to adjust to a new life in San Francisco, turmoil ensues in Headquarters. Although Joy, Riley’s main and most important emotion, tries to keep things positive, the emotions conflict on how best to navigate a new city, house and school.”

Watch below for the official trailer for “Inside Out” and begin your love of the emotions now!


Soon you’ll get to meet each of the emotions, but for now here is a closer look at Disgust!

It looks so good! What a cool idea for a flick! Disney Pixar’s “Inside Out” hits the big screen in 3D on June 19th, 2015, so mark your calendars. We can’t wait!

What do you think about Disney Pixar‘s upcoming movie “Inside Out”? Which emotion do you like best?

“Morning Phase” by Beck

“Beyoncé” by Beyoncé

“X” by Ed Sheeran

“In The Lonely Hour” by Sam Smith

“Girl” by Pharrell Williams


Obviously we are pulling for Ed Sheeran and his album “X” because we were so psyched for it to come out and have listened to it a trillion times, but Pharrell Williams‘ album “Girl” has the song “Happy” on it which we can never get enough of either! And Beyoncé is, well, Beyoncé! Which means she’s awesome! Seriously, all five nominees totally deserve these spots.
