My Predictions For The Shorty Awards

The nominations for the Shorty Awards have been announced! And no, this is not a moment of handing out trophies to those that lack in the height department, like me. This has nothing to do with height but everything to do with social media! So many platforms are being recognized, including Periscope, YowNow and even the best GIF of the year.

There are so many categories to vote on and today I'm going to zone in on some of my favorites and let you know my little simple minded predictions! And if you wanna join the fun and vote for some of your favorite influencers, you can do that here --> VOTE!

YOUTUBE COMEDIAN: It really grinds my gears that Jenna isn't nominated because she's an automatic win for me. But anyways. Colleen had a really big year so I predict that MIRANDA SINGS will win this one. 

YOUTUBE ENSEMBLE: I completely predict Jeana and Jesse at PRANK VS PRANK. They're still so well loved. I also think that a lot of people are feeling for Jesse right now with the passing of his mom so they could get a few more votes from sympathy.

YOUTUBE GURU: This is tough because I don't agree with a lot of the nominations but that's none of my business. I am thrilled to not see certain people on there though!.... Anyways my vote goes to Desi but I actually think that KANDEE is gonna take this one home. 

SNAPCHATTER: I would have said Kylie but then I saw that DJ KHALED was nominated and he's been going viral with his snaps so I think he's winning this one. Even though, "they don't want you to win."

VINER: My vote and prediction goes to DARRIUS BENSON solely because of his "surprise motherfucker" vines that I repeat at random times throughout life and it never gets old. 

YOUTUBER: Again, I'm of course bummed that Jenna wasn't included but this is a no-brainer to me. CASEY NEISTAT! Not only is he a genius, his following really exploded this year. Hands down, Casey. Although if he's not the winner, my next prediction would be Ingrid because of coming out and that kind of bravery is always respected and should be recognized. 

INSTAGRAMMER: Well this is easy... BADDIE WINKLE. done.

ANIMAL: I'm a little hurt that DeNiro was not nominated for, also really bummed that my homie The Daily Walter wasn't. But my vote goes to the goat, although I think the winner will be JIFFPOM. Obvi. 

FOOD: I mean, obviously it has to go to HANNAH HART because My Drunk Kitchen. duh.

HEALTHY LIVING: I think this one is going to CASSEY HO because Bloglaties is huge. Like, really huge.

PODCAST: I really got into podcasts over the last year (and again, no Jenna on the list. ugh) - my vote goes to Grace but I think the win might go to ANOTHER ROUND.

PERISCOPER: Hmm, I'm not a big fan of this platform (it needs a lot of work) but my prediction is MATTHEW SANTORO because of the recent domestic violence situation, he has a huge support system to get him lots of votes. 

GIF of the Year: Of course I'm voting for Pizza Rat, no question. But I think it will be a toss up between Drake and Bowie. If you're thinking about the average age of voters, I'd say DRAKE will win because most kids don't know who David Bowie is. 

INSTAGRAM PHOTO: This is a tough one. I won't be surprised if Kendall Jenner wins, I think that PEACE FOR PARIS will win but my vote goes to Emojis In The Wild. 

VINE of the Year: One million percent the baby gentleman with the AVOCADO!!!! Although Drake and Why The Fuck You Lyin could take it.  

VINE MUSICIAN: My vote and my winner prediction goes to US THE DUO. Mostly because they're the only ones I know of in that category. 

COMEDIAN: There is no chance you will catch me predicting anyone other than KEVIN HART. Maybe I'm biased because he's my favorite, or because I attended his tour this past summer or because I simply believe he is just good for the soul. Whatever. He wins. 

SPORTS: ........ RONDA! drops mic. 

There are so many more categories to vote in, head over to the site and help make social media influencing even bigger!

If you're wondering why I didn't choose a blogger, well, I have no idea who any of them are. As a blogger I guess that's pretty sad on my part. But the blogging world is so gigantic! Maybe next year one of my peers will make it for changing the blogging game (I'm looking at you Helene)!

Let me know in the comments below who some of your favorite influencers are! Who do you wish to win or to see nominated?


My New Blonde Hair

If you follow me on social media (if you don't, you should. like what are you doing? hello. it's me...) and there I go getting carried away again. What I was saying was that if you follow me on social media, you saw that I was alone last week while my fiance was out of town for six days. I'd like to say that DeNiro and I partied it up pretty hard but the truth is that we were really just bored and lonely and sad.

In the meantime, I took his absence as an opportunity to have the time to sit in a hair salon for a million hours. A place where I hadn't been to since last May when I started the process of "Going Blonde" (<--my most popular vlog), but I suck at commitment and I never went back to keep up and continue. So here I was on Friday at noon sitting in the salon chair with a mop like mess on my head wishing I had been back in sooner. Not only did I have roots filled with gray hairs, I was in desperate need of chopping off a bunch of dead ends. It was an actual hot mess. Here, I'll show you.

But then she started her magic and 4 hours later :::: I'm a new woman! Well, not really but at least I could stand to look at myself in the mirror now. And then of course I proceeded to take a zillion selfies and post up on Snapchat!

The obligatory car selfie. It's so golden when the sun is beaming on it.

Now you might be wondering what "blonde hair" products I splurged on. Don't worry, I'll share. And I say splurged because whoa going blonde is not cheap. I'm not usually the high maintenance type but now I kinda have to be. My plan was to head over to Ulta and and try to only stick to what I needed, but then something annoying happened. I GOT PULLED OVER. This was a first for me and of course it was something little that everyone always does. I moved into the left turn lane too early so I technically "crossed double yellow lines". Which apparently to this dude was like the biggest deal ever even if no cars were anywhere in sight. Whatevs bro. ANYWAYS, needless to say, I didn't make it over to Ulta that night because at that point all I wanted to do was go home and see my cat and eat and wait for Robert's plane to land. But I went the next day so let's move on...

I really didn't know what to choose and the location I go to is always out of stock of everything. So I mismatched. Cuz yolo. 

:: PUREOLOGY Perfect 4 Platinum
:: JOICO Color Balance Purple Conditioner
:: IT'S A 10 Miracle Leave-In For Blondes
:: OGX Nourishing Coconut Oil Mist

To be honest, I a little bit feel like I made bad choices. So if any of you out there can help a newbie out with suggestions of great products for my situation, it'd be super greatly appreciated! Anything to keep my hair soft and bright! Especially soft. Oh and before I peace out, in case you're wondering, the end result blonde that I'm going for is THIS but she said it will take one or two more sessions. Yike$!

And if you're in the LA area, head to Joseph Lamar Salon in Burbank and see Rachel!

The "Beauty Guru Products" Giveaway

Hey there! HAPPY NEW YEAR! I hope you all had an incredible holiday season, got everything you wanted for gifts, rang in the new year with your favorite people and ate up all the most delicious things. I spent my Christmas back home in Boston. We hadn't been home in three years so we decided to just show up and surprise everyone on Christmas Eve! I managed to get enough footage to put together a special vlog of that trip, you can see that over here on my YouTube channel if you're interested.

Let's get to why we're really here today! I wanted to kick off the year with something exciting, so I obviously decided on a giveaway! But this isn't just any giveaway, this one is made up only of products brought to you by some of the most loved gurus in the beauty community! My personal top two fave are being featured and maybe some of yours are too!

This 13 product giveaway will be going to ONE lucky winner! Continue below to see what's included and all the ways you can enter to win!



Carli created this beautiful neutral toned purple and brown palette with BH Cosmetics. It features 14 colors of eyeshadows and highlighters! It's been my go-to palette every morning ever since I got it!


You may have seen me gush over her recently in the Best Beauty YouTubers post. She is the creator of a major false eyelash brand called SocialEyes. She personally designs all of the lashes, they're handmade with real hair and they're super affordable! I picked out some of my personal favorite ones for you!


Nicole! A little over a year ago she surprised her viewers with news that she started her own skin care line, Best Damn Beauty! Her most popular and always sold out product is her hydrating lip mask. If you watch her videos, you've seen her use it in every tutorial. I have one of my own and can tell you that it IS ahhh-mazing!


If you're familiar with Kathleen you're aware that she has quite a few products out there in collaboration with companies. Her first ever was her lippie with Colourpop in the color Lumiere and then she popped up with an eyeshadow quad! She now has a second quad with Colourpop but I wanted to put her first one in the giveaway for the nostalgia and because the colors are more versatile.


Everyone knows this one, it's impossible to escape it's mention in the beauty community. Champagne Pop is everywhere! With it being "limited edition" (is it though??) I wanted to include one for you before it's gone forever.

And that's it! 
A palette, 5 lashes, a lip mask, 4 shadows, a lippie stick, and a highlighter! 
I hope this is something exciting that you would want and love and enjoy!

Year In Review : 2015

When I think about this past year it gives me mixed feelings. I saw new places, met new people, and realized a whole lot about myself. But honestly, it was such a mess and filled with emotions that I'd rather never revisit. If you couldn't tell by how badly I let my blog die, the truth is that I was left exhausted and unmotivated because life threw some stones at me that I was very much not expecting. With personal dramas and my job (that I do not love at all) mentally draining me, I just couldn't keep up with the fun things like the blog world and my youtube channel or social media as a whole.

But wait, this wasn't supposed to be a Debbie Downer post. Queue the rewind sound effect. 

As most of us know, trying to remember what you've done in a year can be hard. I can't even remember what I typed ten words ago, never mind what I did 12 months ago. Thankfully we have things like Instagram that store all those aesthetically pleasing memories for us. 

Things I Did In 2015

I filmed a Lookbook video 

@jennamarbles today I met King Julien (said like in Madagascar) and Queen Jenna👑! It was one of the greatest moments of my life to be able to hug and talk to people that legit turn my bad days around. It was one of those "if I ever met so-and-so I would tell them....." and then what you could only hope to happen actually comes true and it's like OMG NOW WHAT DO I SAY!? hahaha. I was overwhelmed with excitement, nerves and gratitude, but I think I said all the important things. THANK YOU JENNA & JULIEN, thank you for just being you and thank you for always making my heart smile. you two are such bright lights in my darkest days. And thanks for bringing the cermet that is an paesh, her kisses were precious🐶 hopefully we meet again (that sounds creepy) @juliensolomita #teamglutenfree #jennamarbles #juliensolomita #jennajulien #teamlegs #teamcermet @iggy_peach
