Friday Favorites

Friday Favorites

Wuddup homies! Wow, this time of year is always so crazy, and the cold weather just makes me not want to do anything! I have been on the struggle bus this week for real! Last Friday, Jacob took me to the KIIS FM Jingle Ball and it was AWESOME! We saw all my favorites...Bruno Mars, Meaghan Trainor, Alessia Cara, Lukas Graham, Britney Spears, Justin Bieber....I love those kinds of shows cause they all play their best songs! It was a super long show though (like 5 hours!) so we were pretty tired by the end. We stayed up WAY past our bedtime and I feel like my body has just been so off since then. Hopefully I can recover this weekend! 

Alright, I'm about to get into my Friday Favorites, but first I just want to let you know to follow me on Instagram @taylorashleyblog and/or Twitter @tayashleyblog. I would love to connect with you all, and you will also be able to stay updated on new content! 

1. Victoria's Secret Fashion Show

Y'all. There are so many things I want to talk about I almost did an entire Friday Favorites on the #VSFashionShow. First of all, Lady Gaga stole the show. With her recent album release and upcoming Superbowl performance, she is just everything right now. The last thing she needed was her own set of wings, and you bet she made it happen. I think the world went nuts when those secret wings popped out, and then (as if the wings weren't enough) she walked the entire runway in 8-inch heels like a BOSS.

We all just need to take a moment for Bella Hadid and The Weeknd. The couple broke up recently, but both were still scheduled to appear in the fashion show. The show must go on! The Weeknd practically serenaded her with googly eyes, and Bella just strutted down the runway in the sexiest outfit ever like she don't really give AF. #BreakupGoals

Lastly, VS showed an interview with angel Josephine Skriver where she said, "Imagine going to bed, being, like, a regular model. And one day you wake up and you're an angel." Nah, girl. Can't relate. But thanks.   

2. 2016 Mashups

One of my favorite parts about the end of the year is all of the awesome mashups that come out! The OG of yearly mashups, DJ Earworm, just released his annual United States of Pop and I am obsessed! It features all of our faves, like Bruno Mars, Justin Bieber, and Flo Rida, but also features some newbies this year, like Lukas Graham and Zayn. 

3. Hairspray LIVE! 

Did anyone else watch this? Cause it was amazing! Hairspray is one of the only movies I have seen over and over again. The music just makes me SO happy! I was so impressed with the acting, singing, the crazy set changes...everything. I still prefer the movie, but this version is definitely worth watching. I have it recorded and will probably end up watching it again. I just felt bad for the guy who played Link Larson because he did an amazing job, but it was Zac Efron who was trending on Twitter. Efron has been in a lot of fraternity type comedies the past few years, and this reminded me of how he was actually born to play Link, and no one will ever be able to live up to his performance in the movie. 

4. Baywatch

Speaking of Zac Efron, (can you tell I'm a Zac Efron fan?) the Baywatch trailer was released, and well...I was honestly a little let down. It's gonna be one of those "so bad it's good" movies. I had higher hopes, but I guess I'll still go see it next summer for the 'Fron and Dwayne "the Rock" Johnson, aka Sexiest Man Alive. 

5. T. Swift & Zayn Go Fifty Shades Darker

Uhhhmmm...what? No one saw this coming. Taylor Swift and the former 1D member released a new track titled "I Don't Want to Live Forever" for the Fifty Shades soundtrack late Thursday night. Surprisingly, I think their different sounds compliment each other very well. I hope Harry Styles doesn't mind. 

What have been your favorite moments from this week?
