Blogging the Bach..Listen to Your Heart 1.3

Watching the bach or anything else for that matter without my crew is not nearly as fun. I do enjoy the show, but it would definitely be a lot more fun watching with everyone. 

Sheridan is still super into Julia. It doesn’t necessarily seem like she is into him. Brandon pulls her aside to explain himself. I don’t really care for his whole situation. Thankfully Chris Harrison comes in to switch things up and tell everyone that everything is changing. No one else is coming in, and it is time to focus on love. People need to figure it out and either commit to moving forward as a couple or pack their bags and go home. 
Julia tells Savannah what’s been going, and she seems a little like a pot stirrer. Gabe tells Savannah he only wants to be there with her, and the pot is definitely stirred. Gabe and Ruby both leave. Brandon convinces Savannah to stay on this journey with him. The agree to be honest with each other and we will see how that goes. Sheridan is fine will all of it, and is excited to continue things with Julia. Is anyone else concerned here?
Now it’s time fo the couples to sing. Everyone starts practicing. Some are good and some are struggling. Julia is still struggling. 

Date #1-Bekah and Danny-To be your best you have to look your best. They shop for new fancy clothes and end in the hot tub. Danny really likes Bekah and she takes longer to get there. 

Julia is still worried about Savannah and Brandon and isn’t ok with them. She needs to talk to Savannah and tells her she is not being genuine. Who knows what is really going on with Savannah and Brandon, but it is weird how much time Julia spends worrying about it.

Date #2-Ryan and Natascha 
They seen Chris Lane perform and who knows what else happened on their date besides singing on stage with Chris Lane. Natascha sees them becoming more and more connected and Ryan feels like she is the other half of what he is looking for. 

The couples meet with the musical director and band and start practicing. Rudy and Matt are doing better. Jaime feels a lot of pressure and gets so nervous. She walks off crying. 

Performance day-The judges are not only looking for the best performance but also the connection. 
Rudy and Matt-Rudy can sing! All of their feedback was good.
Bri and Chris-Bri is worried their chemistry might not show, and I have no idea why. Kesha asks how they feel about each other and Bri says she can confidently say she is falling in love with him. 
Bekah and Danny-I feel like this is the first episode we have even seen these 2. I am not sure what to think of them and it seems like the judges aren’t sure either. 
Savannah and Brandon-I don’t have a lot of thoughts about them except that I want Julia to stop talking about them. 
Julia and Sheridan-I don’t really know what is going on with these two, but their performance was really good. The judges see more chemistry than we have seen so far on this episode. 
Natascha and Ryan-I wasn’t too sure wha to expect from them. I was very surprised. It was really good, and I think they might actually like each other.
Jaime and Trevor-Jaime has been freaking out. She is young and maybe doesn’t have as much experience as other on stage-maybe who knows. They get really good feedback and everyone wants to make Jamie feel love

Bekah and Danny go home. They way they do the roses this season is interesting. The people that leave are the last ones left and there is no one left to say goodbye to.

Beauty Time Tuesday..Empties

It has been a while since I’ve done an empties post. Even though we’re all staying home all of the time I’m still using beauty products. With frequent video chats I like to be ready for the day so I am definitely still using products. 

Victoria’s Secret body spray-I like to keep a spray on hand. I’m not too particular about brand
Big Sexy Hair Root Pump-I love this stuff and have used it for years. 
Bath and Body Works body cream-love
Schmidt’s deodorant-I made the switch to natural deodorant about a year ago. I like this ok but it’s not my favorite. 
Laura Mercier translucent powder -LOVE 
Tarte maneater mascara LOVE
Pür fully charged mascara-I tried this when looking for a cleaner mascara and really love it. 
Color pop lip gloss-I love this gloss and the price point is pretty low. It’s light weight and feels good on my lips. It runs out pretty quickly though. 
Tarte lights camera lashes mascara -Love so much 
Victoria’s Secret bombshell rollerball perfume-Love the roller balls and this scent. 

Sol shower gel-This came in my fabfitfun box. It was ok. 
Lancôme foundation -favorite foundation. I had a few different colors and decided to use them all up in quarantine. 
Kat Von D translucent powder-This came in a gift set or something. It is a very dry powder. I probably wouldn’t buy it again.

Blogging the Bach..Listen to Your Heart 1.2

I’ve been on a deep Love is Blind binge this week so I am late watching this week. I was so ready to watch after last week and then got kind of distracted. Life also got in the way so here we are.

Some of the couples from last week still seem pretty hot and heavy ahem Bri and Chris and some who even knows.
Chris Harrison comes in and sets up the week-newcomers will be part of the week. 

Date #1-Jamie grab your guitar. Grab your guy and go make some beautiful music.
Jamie took Trevor on her date, and no one except maybe Ryan is surprised. They go to Venice Beach, and Trevor gets right to the music. Jamie says nothing can go wrong, and we all know what that means. Trouble is coming (probably in the the entrance of Natasha).They sing together and she feels like it is too good to be true and probably is. Jamie and Trevor happen upon a hot tub and talk about past relationships while Natasha arrives back at the mansion and tells everyone he is a cheater. As soon as they are back from the date, Natasha attacks. 

Date #2-Bri bring the guy who is at the center of your heart
Bri got down on one knee to ask Chris to go on the date. They go into guitar center. They sing about their relationship and they definitely really like each other. Bri tells Chris about her engagement and then says she thinks she is falling in love with him, and she is scared but doesn’t care. He takes a minute and says he is falling for her too. They are for sure the most established couple in the house. 

Date #3-Sheridan choose the woman you are ready to go public with
Sheridan and Julia go to the iHeart studio. They are on the radio and then get to sing. Sheridan is all in on this, and Julia is clearly not sure. They sing together and there is major chemistry. 

Mariana and Ruby arrive and neither care if anything has already been going on in the house. 

Date #4-Savannah and Brandon
I got a little distracted doing my nails. They went to a jazz club. Naturally they sang together and seemed to solidify things. They came back super into each other. Other people in the house have other plans. Julia and Mel both want things to happen with Brandon and make their moves.

Chris —Bri

Mel, Cheyenne, and Mariana go home. None of those people connected with anyone really. Mel was hopefully about Brandon but it was pretty clear it wasn’t going to happen. It looks like the drama might be picking up next week as well as the couples and the singing. I can’t wait.

Blogging the Bach..Listen to Your Heart 1.1

Things have obviously been really quiet around here. Stating the obvious feels a little unnecessary, but for some reason I do it anyway. Now more than ever I should have the time to catch up on things, but for some reason it just isn’t happening. This show is just the motivation I need to get back to blogging.
Who’s watching: Again stating the obvious, I am watching alone. Thank you #socialdistancing

I wasn’t really sure I was going to watch this show. As much as I love all of the bachelor shows, we really enjoy a Monday night break from a show to catch up on chat time. Now that we are all stuck at home, there is no reason not to. So, here we are.

A few minutes into the previews I already know I am going to like this show. It seems like a mix between paradise and bachelor and a singing show. 
Brandon-Yay! We have someone older than 20 years old.
Bri-the token Utah girl
Sheridan-drives his Subaru a lot..and maybe lives there (Dean the 2nd??)
Bekah-musical theater and deserves love
Cade or Gabe-sports, music, faith, and ready for love..sounds great
Savannah-Nashville, yoga, free spirit
Trevor-is he or is he not like Jed? Jacket says yes
Jamie-ready to listen to her heart and not be with a cheater on this journey

Ryan-comes in after Jamie-hopes to be alone with her for a while (does he know where he is?)
Matt-singer songwriter stuff
Mel-really shy when it comes to dudes
Rudi-has dated all of LA already at 24
Michael-we’ll have to see how her voice sounds and comes in and starts singing right away
Josh-young jacked Mr. Clean

Everyone comes in. Jamie comes first and already feels butterflies with Ryan-3 seconds after she gets there. They start to meet each other and some quickly try to couple up a little. 
Chris Harrison comes in and welcomes everyone, tells them how it all works, and send them to their rooms. They come back and all the guys are working it to find a girl. The hot tub is getting hot, and I like the musical addition to this show. 

Date #1-Ryan gets the first date-choose someone who makes your heart sing. He naturally chooses Jamie and Trevor wishes he got the date. The singing starts right away, and they feel like they have an immediate connection. 

Date #2-Hey there Matt-choose a woman who could be your jam. Rudi definitely thought she was going on the date, but he picked Mel instead. They walk into a backyard Plain White Ts concert and that’s about all we saw.

Cocktail Party/Rose Ceremony
Julia kisses Josh as Sheridan comes to find her. He wrote a song for her, and one minute later she is kissing him. Matt seems to have no idea what he did to upset Rudi. Jamie and Ryan really like each other, but Trevor (in the Jed jacket) also really likes Jamie. He plays one of his favorite songs, and now she is very confused.
The girls have the power.
Someone i don’t know (Bekah)-Danny

Week 1 and I’m in. Now I just want to know what happens. Someone stop me from looking up spoilers.
