blogging the bach 16.7

who's watching: Celsey, Amanda, Krista

Once again I am already getting texts and messages about the show tonight. I hope that means it is good and not more of the same. The show starts in a new country and more of the same. 

Date #1-Garrett-can i trust our love?
They meet in the woods of Latvia and Hannah says they are going to work on their trust. Hannah knows they are bungee jumping, BUT they get there and find out it is naked bungee jumping. "One of those creepo workers started this ridiculous trend"--Celsey. There were a lot of metaphors about being strong and free and other things. Garrett tells Hannah that heights are a big hurdle for him and then asks what her hurdles are-good question. They had more conversation than anything we have seen in a while. She gives him the rose.

Date #2-group date
They explore the city including the market. She tells them about her naked bungee jumping. Luke is less than impressed. Tyler takes her aside first. They have a hot and heavy makeout. Hannah is a fan of the straddle. Jed is up next and plays the piano for her. I don't even know what to think about him after the news articles last week. Luke has time next and tells Hannah he was really mad about her bungee jumping. Does he know he is on the bachelorette? Tyler gets the rose and Luke is not happy..again. 

Date #3-Peter
They have a spa day planned, and it is the chance for Peter to have all of Hannah-like he deserves. They learn the history and have a hot spa day. They have major chemistry and Hannah wants to learn the rest. They have an outdoor hot tub and make out some more. They have more talk at dinner and talk about heart break and other relationships. They are definitely setting him up to be the next bachelor. 

Peter gets home from his date. Jed is suddenly jealous and takes his guitar to go find Hannah. He plays out on the street and got a collective eeewww from all of us here. Hannah loved it. Jed tells her he is falling in love. 
Garrett and Luke go at it again. It is beyond ridiculous.
Hannah comes to talk to Luke. She wasn't comfortable with their conversation the other day. She tells him that and probably communicates better than she has with anything. Luke however twists things around and act like he didn't say any of the things we all heard him say. He has a really good way to manipulate the things he said. 
Luke comes back and there is yet another Luke fight (eyeroll emoji)
Chris H comes in and says there won't be a cocktail party tonight.

Garrett, Tyler, and Peter have roses. Jed, Mike, Connor, and Luke get roses. The drama is far from over.

blogging the bach 16.6

who's watching: Celsey, Amanda, Krista, and Megan
I've been getting lots of messages asking if I'm watching. I've heard it's a bizarre episode so I'm excited to see what happens.

conclusion of date with Luke
Hannah feels like she can't give him the rose. He never thought this would happen. He is not going to take that answer and goes back to see her. "He's very good at taking what she says and repeating it"--Amanda. Yep that is exactly what happens. Luke does not get a rose, but he does get to stay. All the guys are less than impressed and so are we.

cocktail party/rose ceremony
We get it. No one likes Luke. Why don't these dudes spend their time getting to know Hannah instead of trying to convince Hannah about Luke?! She obviously doesn't want to hear it. Garrett asks if he talked about the other guys and then went back out and confronted Luke. It was a mess. Hannah comes out and tells the guys she is very frustrated..twice. She is clearly very mad and sick of it all. The guys try to talk a little more, and it doesn't go well. They finally apologize to each other except for Luke who seems incapable of apologizing. This might not be very popular, but I don't really love the way things are going. I think it is great that she is standing up for herself, but I don't really love the way she is doing it. I would like to see a little bit more of a mature approach.

The rose ceremony starts, and it is very cold. It is all very business like. 
Mike, Jed, Connor, Tyler, Dustin, Peter, Dylan, Garrett, Luke all get roses.
They go to Latvia, and Hannah isn't sure if this is going to work for her. The rest of the episode is a recap of what we have already seen. Do we not have enough material this season? We do not understand what is happening.

blogging the bach 16.5

*this post contains sponsored content. all opinions are my own.
The NBA finals messed up the bach schedule last week. Celsey and I watched later in the week. I was having some computer problems and didn't get started very quickly. The main points are...
-Luke S left on his own. I knew he would go home, but I was surprised he left on his own.
-the group date was way better than last week
-ALLLLL the conversation with Luke P was exhausting and so bizarre. Why did that date continue to go on? It was painful to watch. Please send him home and get him signed up for therapy. I am actually serious about this. This stint on national TV is not going well for him, and it really seems like he has some stuff he needs to work out. Speaking of therapy, have you ever been to therapy? Or thought about it but didn't even know where to start? This article is the perfect place to start. It includes frequently asked questions, basic info, help on finding a therapist, and much more.
-the previews for next week look like a whole lot more drama
-our brackets are pretty well dead at this point. It's bad and also really funny.

Beauty Time Thursday-new products

I’ve gotten a few new products lately that I’m excited about. Some of these items were sent to me for testing purposes and some I purchased. 

Getting my FabFitFun box is one of my favorite things. It comes once every quarter, and it feels like Christmas every time. This time I got silicone wine glasses, a clay mask, shower gel and body lotion, blush, rose hydrating spray, cleansing oil, rose gold mask, foot mask, exfoliating scrub, and hair bands. It’s such a great deal, and I love having new full size products to try. 


I got these System Professional products to try from Influenster. My hair has had more issues the past couple of years and needs more hydration. The conditioner smells so good and the mask leaves my hair feeling great. 

I’ve been using the Laneige lip mask for a while so I was excited to try the gloss. It is so good. 

Maxi Lip is a lip plumper that doesn’t use snake venom. It increases the peptides and makes lips a little pinker and a little plumper. I used it daily for a couple of weeks and definitely noticed a difference. I need to get back to using it. 


I ran out of toner and wanted to try something new. This is a spray and does what it says-energizes and brightens skin. It’s a lot lighter than others I have used in the past. I really like it. 

It’s been fun trying new products lately. Is there anything else I should try?

blogging the bach 15.4

Almost everyone missed last week so we started out with a recap of last week. The main point is that Luke P got told to settle down and Cam is gone. We saw more of pilot Pete and we like him.
who's watching: Krista, Megan, Celsey, Alicia, and Adam for a little bit

Chris Harrison comes in and tells them they are leaving LA..in one hour. Everyone is so excited. 

Date #1-one on one with Jed
They walk around and explore Boston and Hannah makes up random things about Boston. They talk about how they are happy to be there with each other. She has a surprise, and it's time at the Celtics arena. They end the night with dinner and some honesty. Jed saw the opportunity to grow his music and then ended up starting to fall for her. She appreciates the honesty, gives him the rose, and is so grateful to be in this with him.

Date #2-group date-True love requires blood, sweat, and tears
Dylan, Matteo, JPJ, Connor, Garrett, Dustin, Devin, Grant, Peter, Kevin, Mike, Luke S, Luke P
The previews for the group date look a little intense. Rugby is basically like football only more intense. The blue team is killing the green team. John Paul Jones runs away with the ball. Kevin hurts his shoulder and has to go in the ambulance. Luke P is ready to fight for Hannah. The other guys do not like it. He body slammed Luke S, and all the guys are starting to get mad. Kevin is still at the hospital, but everyone else is ready for the evening. Hannah talks to Luke P first. They have a little bit of an awkward conversation. Luke P says he doesn't want her to question his character. She talks to Luke S. She still seems to believe him until all the other guys say the same thing about Luke P being the problem. All the guys leave the two Lukes to talk, and the newest rivalry becomes Luke against Luke. Garrett tells Hannah he has a crush on her. Pilot Pete has some good time with her. Garrett gets the rose. 

Date #3-Tyler
Hannah is very emotional after the group date. She really likes LUke P and doesn't know what to think about him. She is bawling on the pier. Tyler comes for the date. Hannah is still upset. She tells Tyler she wants to have fun, but she doesn't know if she can. Tyler says he will be there for her no matter what. They have fun catching lobsters. Hannah tells Tyler she thought he was a player. Tyler says he almost didn't come because his dad had to have surgery. He is exactly what she needed today and he gets the rose. Here is the concert I was expecting earlier. 

Cocktail party/rose ceremony
Hannah hopes to get clarity tonight. Peter asks Hannah to be his girlfriend. There's more Luke P drama. He blames it on Luke S and pulls up the definition of psychopath. Luke S talks to Hannah and says his future tequila business has nothing to do with why he is there. He confronts Luke P who then goes to Hannah. There is a bunch of run around and a bunch of bull. Hannah comes to talk to both of them and then...to be continued.

Beauty Time Thursday-May Empties


Redken color extend conditioner-fave shampoo and conditioner 
Amika dry shampoo-smells so good 
Bath and Body Works body cream-my fave
KMS sea salt spray-I love this spray, but it’s kind of impossible to find. They may have rebranded, but I haven’t been able to find it again. 
Laura Mercier translucent powder-love
Tarte shape tape concealer-I have mixed feelings about this. It took me a long time to like it. It is very full coverage-maybe too full at times. 
Dr. Brandt no more baggage eye cream-love and I feel like it does help
Benefit Bang mascara-I really like this mascara 

I’ve been using most of these products for quite a long time. I buy many over and over.
