Supergirl

So my brother is the super hero fan of the family and quite honestly I’ve never really cared for the movies or anything. However, I did grow up around Power Rangers and Ninja Turtles. I was the Pink Ranger for Halloween as a kid. So I guess you can say I didn’t hate it! ūüėČ There was also my recent obsession with The Amazing Spider-Man- the one with Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone.¬†I freaking love those movies. Add some Romance and I’m all in. Spoiler Alert… BUT WHY DOES SHE DIE????

Any who, my brother had been telling me to watch the CW’s¬†Supergirl for the longest time. He was all like¬†“I think you’ll like it.” and I¬†just kept saying no. Until one day I was looking for a new Netflix binger and low and behold¬†I got hooked into the world of superheroes.

I’m a feminist, and I believe in women’s equality and female empowerment. Girl power all the way, my friend. And this show embodies just that.

CBS premiered Season 1 in October of 2015. The summary reads as follows-

At 12 years old, Kara Zor-El escapes doom on planet Krypton to find protection on Earth with the Danvers family, where she grows up in the shadow of her foster sister, Alex, and learns to hide the extraordinary powers she shares with her cousin, Superman. Now an adult living in National City and working for media mogul Cat Grant, Kara finds her days of keeping her abilities a secret are over when super-secret agency head Hank Henshaw enlists her to help protect the city’s citizens from threats. Finally coming into her own, Kara must juggle her new responsibilities with her very human relationships. (Via Wikipedia)

I watched the full first season on Netflix and am dying to watch the second season. Supergirl is currently airing¬†it’s second season on The CW.¬† It is said to be released on Netflix- Tuesday,¬†May 30th! So I don’t have to wait long! I’ve peeked ahead on YouTube and she has the cutest love interest! I cannot wait to watch the full story unfold!!!!¬†Supergirl¬†was also picked up for a third season!

Oh did I mention that Supergirl is totally the sweetest girl in the world, and the strongest, most badass all in one! Not only can she fly, but¬†she has superhuman strength, speed, and stamina;¬†super breath; x-ray vision; telescopic and microscopic vision; freeze breath; heat vision; and super hearing.¬†She¬†is stronger than an ox, and can repel bullets. She’s the girl of steal. It’s funny how they always pull Superman in on iChat. I hope we actually get to see him, every time they say he’s there, you never fully see him. She’s determined to do things alone, and be her own super heroine, which I respect. But I mean how cool would it be to see a cousin duo tag team. Red, Blue, and Yellow baby. #S

Can we also just give a shot out to the crazy good cast they have. I mean you’ve got quite a few Glee cast members like Melissa Benoist as Kara/Supergirl¬†, Jenna Dewan Tatum from Step Up!, Calista Flockhart best known as¬†“Ally McBeal”,¬†and my girl Chyler Leigh “Lexie Grey” from Grey’s Anatomy. So damn good!

Oh and Winn (played by Jeremey Jordan) is my favorite, what a freaking cutie!

Although I get so annoyed by the fact that Kara can put a pair of glasses on and wear her hair up and suddenly no one can tell she looks just like Supergirl!

I guess they have to suspend reality, so I can let that slide. ūüėČ The rest of the show is¬†kickass.¬†I really love how they developed Kara’s character. She¬†has got this dorky, goofy, out of place, off kilter vibe. She’s an alien on planet Earth,¬†just trying to learn to be human. I think¬†it’s¬†safe to say that she does a good job at trying to blend in, but sometimes her awkwardness gets in the way, and quite honestly I may not an alien, but I think we can all be awkward as hell sometimes! She handles it effortlessly, with her sweetness and then she can instantly¬†flip her switch and be Supergirl saving the world¬†from bad guys and girls. Yes that’s right she battles some bad ass she villains and even though I am all for good winning over evil, it’s super cool to see female villains and superheroes fight it out, rather than just the typical male heroes. Silver Banshee (played by Italia Ricci) was dope!

Supergirl doesn’t kill, but she’s just as effective. And of course she has many admirers along the way which just puts the cherry on top for me. #Romance

They even did a little cross over episode with The CW’s The Flash, and I was a little in love with The Flash/Barry Allen – (played by Grant Gustin-also starred on Glee.) I hear they recently did another one this season, so¬†OMG¬†um, now I’m probably going to have to get into The Flash too.

So there you have it, Supergirl has it all; Confidence, Encourages Female Centric Storylines, Strength, Humor, Action¬†and Romance. I’m all in!

Supergirl airs Monday nights @ 8PM on The CW

Catch up on Season 1 on Netflix!

2015 Fall Fashion Inspiration

Fall is literally right around the corner. And I’m going to be extremely common for just a second when I tell you¬†this is my favorite time of year. My favorite things about fall are the crisp air (even if you wouldn’t know it because¬†it’s still hot in NYC. I can feel the weather wanting to change.) I love the darker colors. I can wear black, and not bake in the heat. I love the promise of fun filled holidays and fun events. And last but not least I do love me some pumpkin flavored stuff. I’m not¬†a fanatic about it, but I do think it’s a fall staple. So let’s get down to business here, shall we?

My 2015 Fall Fashion Inspiration

Beanies, Leather Jackets, Flannels, Converse…

Capture

Cozy Sweaters, Ripped Jeans, Boots…

Birkenstocks with socks…

I normally cringe at the idea of wearing socks with sandals. However, I bought a pair of knock off Birkenstocks this summer¬†and I feel like I only wore them a few times. So I would like to continue to wear them¬†through the fall. In fact the styling of the fall look is super cute. I can’t wait to give it a try.

Scarves are my stable for the fall. I have one for every outfit. And they are just a really simple way to add some fashion sense to your outfits, and keep you warm at the same time.

Big floppy hats…

I love the look of these hats and seeing as how it’s often too hot for me to function in the summer for me to leave hats on for too long, fall is much more suitable to rock these. I gotta get one!

The darker nail polish and makeup tones…as we speak my nails are black and I can’t wait to paint them Essie’s Wicked next!

The tulle/ballerina tutu skirt, I have always been in awe of the Carrie Bradshaw fashion. She manages to pull off the most bizarre things. And these skirts are so beautiful to me, getting a nice black one and pairing it with some nice pumps for a night out would be gorgeous!

Tori Kelly Curls…

Oh my god I am OBSESSED with this girl, with her voice, and her laidback fashion. BUT her hair is in a league of it’s own and I have been trying to replicate it, but I think I need a crimper. It’s just not big enough. For this look; the bigger the hair the better.

Laidback dance rehearsal style outfits…

I’m not gonna lie, I have an obsession with dancer wardrobe. When Bethany Mota was on Dancing With The Stars two seasons ago, I would always love her rehearsal outfits. She always looked so cool and comfortable, but still really cute. Same goes for Jenna Dewan’s character in Step Up. I was always so in love with her outfits. In fact I’m a big fan¬†of leg warmers, and I wear them a lot. The only ingredient missing is…I wish I was a dancer. I mean I love to dance and¬†used to be in dance class as a kid, that counts, right?
