The Bachelor Season 21 - Week Five.

Image
I am getting so frustrated with the lack of rose ceremonies at the end of the episode. Can you believe it's week five already? We're like halfway done! I wish it were week 7 already though. Actually, week 10! I'm over the Corinne drama and I want to know who "won" the final rose. Speaking of Corinne: In the preview for this week, they showed a Taylor/Corinne showdown. I'm guessing a two-on-one date and I'm guessing one goes home! My hope is that it's Corinne, but in all honesty, it'll probably be Taylor, due to a pity party of some sort. Hit "read more" and enjoy the spoilers!


Riverdale (CW).

I was incredibly excited whenever Riverdale was announced. I watch pretty much anything that the CW, Freeform, or ABC puts out because it's usually decent (with some exceptions). I decided to give this one a try definitely though. I never extensively read the comics, but I have read some. So I expected a recreation of the Archie Comics.

The Archie Comics and the CW show 'Riverdale' are set in the fictional small town of Riverdale. The state or even the general location of the town is unspecified. Archie first appeared in Pep Comics #22 in 1941. Due to his popularity, he was given his own series which debuted in 1942, known as Archie Comics. The series ended with issue #666 (in June 2015) to make way for a new series set in Archie Comics' "New Riverdale".

Here is an example of the comic:

Riverdale has a cast who seem to perfectly fit the bill. We are introduced to Archie Andrews (K.J. Apa), Betty Cooper (Lili Reinhart), Veronica Lodge (Camilla Mendes), Jughead Jo…

Eat Well Be Well Voxbox

Image
I've been a part of the Influenster community for years now. They always send me interesting products that I get to try for free. Of course, I have to review the products a bunch, but I don't mind. In the past, I've received an air purifier, make-up, and other amazing products.

This time, I received the "Eat Well Be Well" Voxbox. A voxbox is what they call the boxes they send you in the mail that are full of products and/or coupons. This one focused on being healthy. It included a lot of healthy options, especially gluten free ones. I made a video on my YouTube channel (which I hope to use a little more and would like to use more videos in my blog posts). Note: I was incredibly sick with a sinus infection and cold. Don't judge the way I look or sound.


The big impression I had from this voxbox was the pretzels. Jude and my husband ate them like they were regular pretzels (not gluten free ones). They are both picky when it comes to gluten-free or lactose free or …

The Bachelor Season 21 - Week Four.

Image
We ended last episode without another rose ceremony! I'm so over not knowing who is sent home at the end of an episode. If we're lucky, we might be able to catch up this episode and return to our regularly scheduled rose ceremonies. Quick recap: Liz has been sent home. Dominique has been sent home. We have seventeen girls left as of the end of the episode. Corinne is the worst. Nick is making a lot of girls angry. We still hope he ends up engaged by the end of this. Fingers crossed! Keep reading to hear about week four of The Bachelor. Spoilers follow.

The Bachelor Season 21 - Week 3.

Image
Last week ended with a very big cliffhanger! Liz was voted off the island (so to speak). They were on group date #2 and there was not a rose given out to a single soul past that point. The women were shocked. I was shocked. My main question was: WHO DIDN'T GET A ROSE? If you haven't watched week three's episode of the Bachelor, don't keep going unless you want to fall into Spoilersland.

Winter 2017 Television Premieres

Image
I'm running a little late in posting this. I am an avid list-maker. I make lists for everything. Three times a year, I make a list of television shows that will be coming on in the Winter/Spring, Summer, and Fall. It's time for the Winter/Spring list! Though some have not been announced, I have most of them listed. There are a bunch more that are premiering, but we'll call this "Dori's Watchlist". This is all of the shows I will be watching. 

The Bachelor Season 21 - Week Two.

Image
Last week was very interesting. Mostly because we met a ton of girls. Some of which were odd characters. We also got the season trailer. Apparently, we will see Nick and some of the girls in Finland.

So, there is 22 women left. They are:

Alexis, 23, aspiring dolphin trainer, Secaucus, NJ


Astrid, 26, plastic surgery office manager, Tampa, FL
