In a month full of all kinds of new, unnecessary horror sequels (looking at you “Ouija 2”), one film stands high above the rest. No, not a new-age horror flick just in time for Halloween, but instead, the 1988 cult classic horror-comedy: “Beetlejuice.” Directed by the legendary Tim Burton...

I’ve always hated the color red. At a younger age, red symbolized everything negative in the world. It represented the blood from the scrapes I would get on my knees from the park, anger, evil, and now my skin. My skin gets very irritated very quickly. The blemishes fire up like Donald Trump every tim...

Hello and welcome back! I am the Movie Buff and now that the Most Disappointing Summer in Movies has come to an end, it is a nice and refreshing feeling to return to movies that not only aren’t a giant disappointment, but are actually worth your money.

Filed under Fresh Face: Product of the Month - Michael Tenney

Over the summer, I hoped my skin would blossom into the perfect airbrushed aesthetic that Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid miraculously obtained. However, I still have enough oil on my forehead to make a cake. A customer once noticed my cake making ability due to the oil on my skin while I worked. I ran...

Hi Everyone, for this month’s DIY (do it yourself) project, I decided to do something a little different this month. I noticed that I always give basic birthday gifts like gift cards to Starbucks, or iTunes.  I feel like the person receiving the gift appreciates it more if it’s more thoughtful and...

Hello everyone! I’m back with my monthly five songs after a quick break from my routine last month. So much good music dropped in April and I have to say I almost had a heart attack when both Drake and Beyonce dropped music in the same week. However, those of you who read these things regularly (thank...

It’s May, so the summer movie season has officially kicked off, and let me tell you, thank God for that! Rather than spending your time at the beach or hanging out in the sunshine, you can sit down in your seat with your overpriced buttered popcorn and soda, and enjoy stuffing it into your face whi...
