For today’s outfit, I’m wearing a fun tropical shirt from H&M that was $9.99 and the cuffed shorts I’m wearing are also from H&M and were $12.99. I was going for a relaxed look so I wore my hair loosely in waves with a bit of dry shampoo and hairspray. I really love how loose the top is with criss cross straps on the shoulders.
This week’s episode was interesting with more girls from Chris’s season returning. Things have shifted quite a bit. We also lost three guys right off the bat which was crazy.
Carly and Kirk: I love Carly and Kirk’s personalities. They mesh well and are both charismatic. Their date was really cute, especially with Carly calling her brother. But I can’t believe she missed her brother’s wedding. Well, I guess it depends on how paradise ends. Hopefully, it ends well. They make an adorable pair.
Tanner and Jade: Again, we got some small glimpses of Tanner and Jade doing well. They might be the “Marcus and Lacey” of the season. They’re also the couple I can see surviving in the real world. I know some people think they break up based on the preview, but I don’t buy into that.
Dan/ Ashley S./ Amber: Dan let go of Ashley, and I was so sad for her. He let her down in the nicest way possible, but Ashley was still annoyed at him. Then Amber comes along, and Dan and Amber had a nice date. I enjoyed seeing Dan and Amber because their conversation reminded me of a first date, and not some mushy forever and ever cliche. Remember Michelle and Cody’s wedding shoot? XD
Jared and Ashley I: So Ashley called Jared hot in this episode. That’s it.
Tenley and Joshua: She’s still so amused by his hands.
JJ and Megan: Megan chose JJ for her date, and I kind of thought they’d make a cute, weird couple. But Sobrero? Really?
Joe/ Juelia/ Samantha: I saved this for last because I have a lot of thoughts on this. So the episodes focused on Joe quickly jumping from Juelia to Samantha, and how Samantha and Joe talked before the show and lied to everyone. First, let me say that Juelia was a bit naive. She went a little fast by telling everyone she loved him, and that he would make a great father. And multiple people told her to watch out for Joe, which speaks volumes. However, Joe had no right to talk to Juelia the way he did. He was extremely defensive until Juelia said she wanted to speak to Samantha. Then he started apologizing immediately. He is so manipulative and immature. Good for Juelia when she started saying how she felt played by Joe in front of Samantha. But Juelia didn’t get her revenge yet, because Samantha defended Joe. Things get interesting when Super JJ swoops in for the rescue. JJ has actually grown on me a little. I liked how JJ called out Joe so bluntly. Bless Tanner and Jared who couldn’t handle the confrontation and just sat there.
And Jorge made his debut as Ashley’s counselor. That’s it for these two episodes! Let me know if I forgot to mention something from the episode. Can’t wait for more drama to come.
Clare and Mikey: I felt bad for Clare. She says there’s no guys left for her…except for Mikey, who is so oblivious. Clare basically tells him that she doesn’t really want to committ to him, and then he tries to kiss her. It appears as though Clare and Mikey are paired off but then Jared pulls a sneaky one. He and Clare make a little pact about how they’re going to spend time together, even if they both get roses from other people.
Ashley and Jared: Ashley is so endearing sometimes. She’s so vocal about how she thinks she’s going to end up alone,which is something I think so many people go through. I go back and forth with her. On one hand, I want Jared to like her more than he does. Like when she starts taking shots as soon as she sees Jared with Tenley. She was SO drunk and it was hilarious. XD On the other hand, Ashley needs to stop crying, and believe in herself! She’s gorgeous and has a great personality.
Dan and Ashley: I love these two. Ashley is so funny. I thought it was hilarious when she was ecstatic about the French fries. And Dan is so sweet with Ashley for going to the hospital with her. They make a very adorable pairing.
Jade and Tanner: These two are clearly still into each other after their date. We see them in the background now since there really isn’t any drama. They’re still one of my favorite couples so far.
Carly and Kirk: They’re basically in the same boat as Jade and Tanner. And I really like Kirk’s personality. He fits well with Carly.
Jonathan and Juelia: I guess they’re a thing. We didn’t see them, so I’m assuming they’re not going to last long.
Tenley and JJ: I can’t believe Tenley gave JJ an invite to kiss her. She literally used the word “permission.” It was so weird. But whatever, I’m glad she stayed because I’m looking forward to seeing her and Joshua.
Other Random Thoughts:
– The theme song in the beginning was AMAZING!
– Clare’s fishtail and black dress were on point. I also loved Carly’s gold dress with a headband over her beach waves.
– Clare also befriends a crab this season, and replaces the raccoon.
– Clare also has a weird vocabulary. Privies?
– JJ is so silly as a villain. Why was he getting mad during the rose ceremony?
– I’m really surprised that Jared is the guy all the girls are taking a liking to. I thought someone like Dan would be the guy the girls fight over.
– This is super random but I just thought of Ashley I’s perfect match: Cupcake! Remember when he said he was Aladdin?

I love looking for new dorm ideas and SRtrends has been doing really great articles on dorm ideas. I put the links to a few articles below about some ideas and pictures to get inspiration. My personal favorites are the chic and preppy styles, although all the different types had unique pieces that I’d want to invest in. I also love the idea of using quotes.
