Why I Shouldn’t Have Watched Breaking Dawn Part 1

I’ll be the first to admit that I did not initially get into the Twilight craze. I am not a diehard Twilight fan. My thinking was that it was just like the Harry Potter movies (which I also did not get into) except with vampires. I didn’t want to jump on the bandwagon because everyone else was doing it. I didn’t want to be a follower, I wanted to rebel. Plus I thought the teenage vampire concept was lame. I’ll also be the first to admit that I was wrong. Continue reading

Project Runway Season 9 Episode 11

The Challenge: The designers and a teammate must go head to head and create high fashion designs inspired by exotic birds.

Guest Judge: Francisco Costa (fashion figure)

Best Designs: Anya [Challenge Winner] (Once again, she made another gorgeous design. It’s definitely not a boring black dress, the detailing keeps you interested. It’s edgy and isn’t literally feathered or shaped like a bird.) ; Viktor (Though the judges thought this dress was too literal, I thought it was beautiful. Very flowy and airy.

I Always Learn The Hard Way

I know, I know… the JPD has been a blog dedicated to Project Runway for the past few weeks. I apologize. Now let’s get back to business.

Project Runway Season 9 Episode 9

The Challenge: In two teams of 4, the designers must create “image-making threads” for the rock band the Sheepdogs. The band must look somewhat cohesive, however, they will be judged individually.

Guest Judge: Adam Lambert

Observations (this goes for episode 8 too): Olivier is so freaking slow (no time management skills whatsoever), whiny, and annoying. Newsflash Olivier — Nobody cares that you don’t like the challenges. So what if it’s not something you like, it’s a challenge. They are trying to determine what you can do! And seriously, when you have clients that want something a particular way, do it! Don’t argue! YOU’RE not the one wearing it! They are! And stop calling people “fat”… asshole. *End of rant*

Team Harmony: Anthony, Bert, Anya, and Laura

Team Untitled: Josh M., Olivier, Viktor, and Kimberly
