"All About That Bass"

Meghan Trainor’s hit song “All about that bass” has taken the world by storm. Everywhere I go I can see people rocking out to this “feel good” jam. However I have a very unpopular opinion about the song. It’s no secret that the fashion & entertainment Industry have created unrealistic ideals on beauty since the beginning of time, by promoting photo shopped pin thin girls with air brushed skin. Recently the music industry has started a very similar wave on unhealthy body shaming, but this time it’s disguised as the celebration of full figured women. Body acceptance is not about celebrating one shape or size because when it comes down to it there are endless body shapes, each of them beautiful in there own way. This leads me to my unpopular opinion that “All about that bass” Is not a celebratory song but a song that shames women by saying that “every inch of you is beautiful”….unless you’re “a size two” or a “skinny b*tch”. We get caught up in the mindset that only one type of person is allowed to have insecurities. Quite frankly we all deal with feeling out of place and far from perfect. I think if we promote the mindset that we are all beautiful regardless of what size we are or what body type we have the world would be a much more confident and accepting place. 

Just a reminder that you, YES YOU READING THIS are beautiful!

Home Alone on a Saturday Night

Pictured above is me trying to make friends, not awkward at all!

It’s 9:00p.m. on a saturday night and I’m home alone eating cheez-it’s. Don’t get me wrong there is nothing bad about this! I love cheez-it’s so much I had to take a break between writing cheez & -it to eat another one cause I’m addicted. However it crossed my mind that most people my age reserve saturday nights for hanging out with friends. (Picture a long pause in me talking cause I just had to run down stairs and get more cheez-it’s.) Anyways this got me thinking about how hard it is to make friends these days and I thought I would share my frustration with you. For starters everyone is always on their phone. I physically can’t speak to anyone in public because their on this tiny glowing box talking to anybody and everybody that isn’t in the room, instead of all the real life humans that are there. Lets say by some luck I actually get the courage to talk to the one person in the room not looking at a tiny glowing screen in attempt to block out all the other people looking at tiny glowing screens. What do you even say? Back in the day you could see a kid on the play ground drinking the same flavor of CapriSun as you and BAM you were “BEST FRIENDZ 4 LYFE”. You can’t do that out in the real world! 

  1. No adult is casually drinking juice box’s on the street. 
  2. If you’re like “Hey thats some nice juice you got there” people will look at you like you’re crazy! 

Then if you some how actually end up having a some what normal conversation with this person, there are like 80 forms of communication to connect with people on now. Do you ask for their number or is that basically yelling “I HAVE NO FRIENDS, PLEASE BE FRIENDS WITH ME”. Do you email, skype, tweet, or exchange instagrams? Then once you establish a form of communication you have to plan something to do with that person. Once you plan something to do you actually have to show up. This means you have to do your makeup, actually get dressed, and come up with an escape plan incase this person turns out to be a total crazy. After all of that you have to hangout with this person in real human clothing instead of your typical sweatpants and hoodie and talk about a bunch of random subjects to avoid awkward lulls in conversation. 

Long story short it’s a lot of work to make new friends today and if I’m gonna be totally honest I rather sit at home eating cheez-it’s talking to you guys. I just ran out of cheez-it’s so I better go. 

ps. I SWEAR I HAVE REAL LIFE FRIENDS…..MAYBE. 

love, Allie  

5 Reasons Why I'm Totally Obsessed With You Guys

  • I was up till 2am last night trying to learn how to use tumblr...My conclusion:I still don't understand it at all! But you guys seem to LOVE it & I LOVE you guys! So I have embarked down the rabbit hole that is tumblr. I'm making a tumblr because unlike most online personalities for the most part I don't share any of personal life on camera. Everything you guys know about me you have learned through your very clever detective work. We all know I'm a huge fan of cryptic messages, sub-tweets, and secretly meaningful instagrams. In the next few months I'm will be launching my first scripted short series. Not only am I excited for you guys to finally see me act, but the series is loaded with cryptic messages that I can't wait for you to solve! In the meantime here are 5 reasons why I'm totally obsessed with YOU!
  • 1. You guys are hilarious! Just last night I tweeted a photo of my spirit animal "the goat". You sent back a sea of adorable goat videos and photos. Only our FamALLIE understands the obsession that is the goat.
  • 2. You support me no matter what! I'm not perfect and you guys accept that. Despite my thousands of spelling errors on twitter, my sometimes weird videos, and my confusion when it comes to all internet slang; including but not limited to BAE.
  • 3. You guys give the BEST hugs! But really I force you guys to hug me even when you don't want to cause your hugs are the best!
  • 4. You put together the cutest Instgrams. It's no secret that If you guys comment on my instagrams I often can be found stalking yours and leaving comments back. Each night before I go to bed I look for people who put together cute edits or even just leave nice comments. I then proceed to do what any normal person would do...STALK THEM & leave comments on their photos.
  • 5. You are completely selfless. You guys have made some of my wildest dreams come true and you continue to support me, never asking for anything in return. I hope I can some how make it up to you guys, even though I know thats impossible.
  • Love, Allie
