Most Romantic Moment #7

So yes I am a Barbie girl. I grew up with Barbie loving the message I can do whatever I want to. I liked Barbie the way she used to be, she may not have been proportionate but she looked healthy, not like the thin stick dolls they make today.

So this webisode show is available online and on Netflix. It is done in the way of The Office or Modern Family. Events with a pause for interviews, etc.

I started watching this with my niece, and really enjoy. The characters and situations are hilarious, and hands down; Ken is the perfect boyfriend.

It is Valentine’s Day and Ken is out shopping for the perfect gift for Barbie. While at the flower shop, he is seen by Ryan; a guy who is out to steal Barbie away.

Ryan watches Ken pick out a small bouquet of roses, and then decides to purchase a giant horseshoe shaped wreath.

Ken then travels to the Candy store and buys a small heart box full of candy. Ryan buys a life size Chocolate Statue of himself.

Chocolate makes everything better

Ken then goes to the card store, but can’t find one he likes. Ryan buys a custom card that is his size and has himself inside singing a love song. Who will Barbie choose?

Most Romantic Moment: It’s the Meaning That Counts

So the most romantic moment comes after Ryan has displayed his gifts and Ken shares why he picked out his. He choose the small bouquet of roses because they were Barbie’s absolute favorites.

He bought her the box of Chocolates, because they were the same one she loved as a girl.

You're so cute

And then he handmade her a card saying that she’ll always be his girl.

How romantic

How romantic

What a guy right? The fact that he got her everything she loved and things that actually meant something is worth more than millions. They are perfect. HE is perfect.

Just another fictional man ruining reality.

Any Way You Want It

itsNevertooLateFScottFitzgerald

So guys, here we are another post on the “Getting Over a Heartbreak” series:

journey-any-way-you-want-it-big

28) Any Way You Want It by Journey

Another Journey song, I know but I can’t help it I love them. They capture emotions so well and can really get their message across.

Journey

So this song was released in the ’80s. It was written by lead singer Steve Perry and guitarist Neal Schon. In 1979, Journey was touring with Thin Lizzy and were greatly influenced by them.

The reason I put this on the list was because after a breakup you need to focus on yourself and what you want. And as you are single you should not only can do what you want but you should do whatever you want.

Any way you want it
That’s the way you need it
Any way you want it
She loves to laugh
She loves to sing
She does everything
She loves to move
She loves to grove
She loves the lovin’ things
Ooh, all night, all night
Oh, every night
So hold tight, hold tight
Ooh, baby, hold tight
Oh, she said,

Any way you want it
That’s the way you need it
Any way you want it
She said, Any way you want it
That’s the way you need it
Any way you want it

AnyWayYOuWantItJourney

I was alone
I never knew
What good love could do
Ooh, then we touched
Then we sang
About the lovin’ things

Ooh, all night, all night
Oh, every night
So hold tight, hold tight
Ooh baby, hold tight
Oh, she said,

Any way you want it
That’s the way you need it
Any way you want it
She said, Any way you want it
That’s the way you need it
Any way you want it

There is also the awesome Rock of Ages version:

After all, once you know what you want go after it:

WantAGiuy

And never settle for anything else:

You may be:

Hair Today, Hair Tomorrow

Why is it that whenever you do your hair in the morning, and it look really good, (like you had a personal stylist); the elements always have to screw it up? It’s like seriously, does the wind have to suddenly spring up out of nowhere? Does the humidity have to really be that strong?

For me, if I straighten my hair the humidity will always ruin it-but just pieces will suddenly start getting wavy, making it look like I have no idea what I’m doing. This is me on a regular basis.

Oh well, I guess I’ll just have to accept the fact that my hair does whatever it wants. After all;
