Last Five

The Last Five songs I downloaded.

1.  Kiss You by One Direction: So I was all ready to side with The Wanted (even though we all know I am an *NSYNC girl in my heart), because I saw The Wanted’s show on E!. But here’s the problem: One Direction is just so damn catchy sometimes. This is one of those times. It’s a great commuting song, a great workout song, a great playing in Excel at work song. I can’t get enough!One Direction

2. Live It Up by Jennifer Lopez feat. Pitbull: This right here is a formula that cannot fail. J-Lo + Pitbull= quality dance/workout/fun music. The only word that can describe this song is: Fierce!J Lo

3. They Don’t Know About Us by One Direction: Catchy boy band ballad? Yes please!

4. I’m Out by Ciara feat. Nicki Minaj: I live for this song and this duo! Ciara is a constant on my workout mix, and this song has been a great addition of late. Sometimes Ciara has been hit and miss in the past few years, but I think this is a little more reminiscent of her fabulous sophomore album.Ciara

5. Roar by Katy Perry: Download this song now and play it on repeat. The first time I heard it I was not sold, but I needed some new music so I downloaded it and put it on my workout mix. When it came on during my run on the treadmill (my least favorite cardio machine) I played it about five times in a row and upped by speed. It is super motivational!

Summer Movie Wrap Up

This summer I saw a lot of movies.  I would go through each of them, but I don’t think there is enough time in the day.  Here’s how I ranked them:

  1. Katy Perry: Part of Me
  2. Magic Mike
  3. Marigold Hotel
  4. Hit and Run
  5. Snow White and the Huntsman
  6. The Avengers
  7. Sparkle
  8. Rock of Ages
  9. Moonrise Kingdom
  10. To Rome With Love
  11. Hope Springs
  12. Ted
  13. The Campaign
  14. Men in Black 3

I really liked the Katy Perry movie which I realize is kind of random.  I do, however, love a good concert, and that movie was her concert with the added bonus of her dramatic personal life.  I found it interesting, entertaining, and inspiring because she is such a strong person.

Another notable good one was the Marigold Hotel movie.  It was a little slow, but good none the less.  And Hit and Run was an unexpected witty comedy for me.

My disappointments were The Campaign and Ted (I wasn’t expecting much from MIB3).  I thought they were both funny but not really my humor.  I might be older than I thought.  And Hope Springs was a lot more old people sex talk than I was expecting.  Oops.

The movie I’m looking forward to this fall is Pitch Perfect.

What were your favorites or least favorites from the summer?
