The Bachelorette Review: The Tia Tea

Related image

It happens every season. I skip a recap or two because I get bored with the season. However, the hometown date was actually pretty good considering it’s usually really boring. Here are my thoughts on each one, along with what I thought about Tia coming back to talk to Becca about Colton.

Garrett: Garrett and Becca had such a great hometown. It felt the most effortless and relaxed of the bunch of hometown dates. I think we got some more insight from the family, and it almost made me feel a little bit better about Garrett’s story about his ex wife since it aligns a lot with his family’s. My thing is, I just can’t see Becca saying goodbye to Garrett. When she called Jason and Blake first, I knew it couldn’t possibly be Garrett.

Blake: Blake reminds me so much of Nick from Andi’s season, and I can totally see him having a very emotional exit if Becca doesn’t choose him. Out of all the guys, he seems the most into her and the most likely to be completely shattered if Becca doesn’t pick him. Also as a side note, Blake had a very dramatic high school life. Between the affair with his mom and the shooting, he had it rough as a teenager.

Jason: When the season started, I had a crush on Jason that none of my friends understood because he was barely featured. Now, everyone gets why he’s my season crush. He’s very real and goofy, and then he says things to Becca that makes me swoon. I feel like he’s make a great Bachelor and maybe even a different type than we’re used to. Arie, Nick, Chris and Ben were descent, but they’ve all been pretty serious. Jason would be funny and charismatic, which is something we haven’t seen in a while. His family seems awesome, and I loved how much love there was between his brother and husband. Side Note* Have we ever seen a gay couple on the show?

Colton: I listened to the Almost Famous Podcast today, and I really feel bad for being down on Colton all season. He was pretty transparent about his relationship with Tia and Becca on the podcast, and I think the show made him look shadier than he actually is. His dad was actually the best with questions in my opinion during the hometown. He knows it was hard for Colton to open up, so it was nice for him to give it back by asking about Arie.

Other Thoughts:

  • I can see where Tia was coming from. She wanted to be calm and cool about the situation with Colton, but she finally had to have her peace. I have a hard time defending her though because I really didn’t like her throwing Bekah M. under the bus last season, along with speaking poorly about Kendall. So when she did this to Becca, it made me feel so badly for Becca. That being said, Tia is getting a lot of hate on social media, and people need to chill out. Colton is going to paradise. Becca is engaged. No need for hate.
  • So that’s my recap. I’m worried for Blake. Apologetic toward Colton. Still Obsessed with Jason, and happy for Garrett….because he’s probably engaged to Becca.

PLL Fashion from Exes and OMGs

Pretty Little Liars had a ton of fashion, including Aria’s potential wedding dress, so check out the fashion below. Also, here is my weekly review on the episode from last night:https://mytrendingstories.com/article/pretty-little-liars-season-7-episode-8-review-exes-and-omgs/

Club Monaco ‘Rimona Jacket’ – no longer available

I loved how modern this jacket was. The color and sleek zippers worked so well here. And the embellished shirt is so gorgeous. I loved that she paired it so there was just a peek of metal.

Alice + Olivia ‘Sidney Top’ – $330.00

Hanna wore this beautiful top that had an Aztec print on it. I also liked the sheer sleeves. Ashley Benson’s hair has been amazing in this season and her waves look so pretty with this off the shoulder top.

Zara ‘Flowing Shirt with Bib Front Embroidery’ – $49.90

I liked this preppy summery top. This looked like a Spencer top, but I liked that Aria wore these with bright jeans in true Aria fashion. I would wear these with distressed jeans for a more casual look.

Rebecca Minkoff ‘Page Cold Shoulder Sweater’ – $148.00

I really liked how cozy this sweater looked. The cutouts on her sweater matched her ripped jeans, and somehow Troian still makes Spencer have a very preppy vibe.

Rebecca Taylor ‘Sleeveless Dreamweaver V Neck Dress’ – $199.00

Alison wore this girly dress with a simply flowing blazer. I like this blue color on Alison.

Sanctuary ‘Lace Up Blouse’ – $79.00

Emily always wears these criss cross shirts, and I like how flowy and laidback this one feels.

Sherri Hill ‘Spring 2016 Gown’ – not available online

Okay, so Aria hasn’t worn it yet, but it was such a pretty simple dress, and I could see Aria wearing her short hair in an updo or even a headband.

Bachelor in Paradise Review: The Joe and Ashley Alliance

from Whip Clip: Check out the links below for more clips from the episode.

Carly and Kirk: It was so cute when Kirk pretended like he didn’t know he was going to call Carly’s name. Then in the next episode, Kirk takes Carly on the cutest date ever. I thought they were so precious.

Ashley S and Nick: These two were hilarious on their date. They were both gone, and I loved that they just owned it. Nick has a fun personality, and these two are crazy together. I wished he and Sammy hadn’t talked, because I have a feeling he might go back to her when she dumps Joe for good. It’s two bad, because Ashley and Nick were so funny together. I also love the headbands she’s been wearing.

JJ and Megan: So I officially love JJ. I would definitely be friends with him. He’s so dramatic and doesn’t understand how ridiculous he comes off. Even Megan wasn’t that upset with him. But no one was mad at him, so he must have done something right. I’m gonna miss JJ. 😦 But he did give his rose to the right person, because Ashley is such great television.

Here’s a link to JJ handing out his rose: https://www.whipclip.com/embed/eqivr

Jade and Tanner: Tanner is really falling for Jade, and it turns out that she feels the same way. They’re a sweet couple for sure. I thought Tanner cutting the agave plant was funny, and I liked how they acted like a real couple. Just a quick side note, I LOVED Jade’s ombre maxi dress. Here’s what she posted about it on twitter.

Ashley and Jared: So Jared told Ashley that he wasn’t feeling the chemistry, and I felt so bad for her. Jared was trying to be nice, but she was in tears and he let her be. Then Ashley calls Kaitlyn! Kaitlyn’s reaction was priceless. Ashley really does have to move on. Let’s also touch upon the friendship between Ashley and Joe. They were so funny, and I thought Ashley’s idea was cute. I like that they formed an alliance to get back together with Sammy and Jared. It’ll probably fail on both ends, but their wallowing in the episode was hysterical.

Juelia and Mikey: Who would’ve thought this couple would come to be kind of cute? I loved their date, and it turns out they have a lot of chemistry. I loved seeing Juelia finally happy, and their wrestling date was so cute.

Samantha and Joe: Again, I thought Ashley’s idea was cute, but Sammy made it very clear that she didn’t want Joe when she dumped him on his own birthday. Even though Joe is a douche, I did like seeing his goofy side with Ashley I. He’s so depressed and Carly was right about karma coming back to bite him.

Amber and Dan: Dan better watch out for Justin…..

Also Ben H. is the next bachelor! 🙂
