Movie Review: Clueless

I stayed up last night watching the 1995 film Clueless. It is not exactly a classic, but I believe that the motifs you can take from this movie will hold true for a long time. Clueless was filmed in the age before laptops or smartphones, but because 1995’s technology wasn’t the movie’s main focus, this shouldn’t be a reason you decide against watching it . Before I begin my review, yes, Clueless is available on Netflix.  Continue reading “Movie Review: Clueless”

Life isn’t Consistent

As I write to you from the belly of the beast, I’d like to apologize to those of you who have enjoyed the consistency with which I’d written on this site in the past. As some of you may have noticed, this site has moved from whenever inspiration strikes to Bella XO. 

I will not delete my old posts because that would be like deleting my past, and we all know that we can’t change the past.

Would My Life Make a Good Reality TV Show?

imgres.jpgOn the radio this morning, I heard the anchor ask this question in reference to a family who started their own reality show after becoming obsessed with Keeping Up with the Kardashians. I find this to be an intriguing prompt due to the fact that it’s a question I have asked myself my whole life. When I was little I used to narrate my life and try to make it seem as though every moment was was worth watching. To this day I wonder if my life is something people would enjoy captured on the big screen. Continue reading “Would My Life Make a Good Reality TV Show?”

Wishing on a Star // Writing Prompt: Entry 5

Today’s prompt is: What do I wish for the most? This is a selfish question in my opinion. At first glance, you will think of items you’ve been longing for. But because that’s not what I’m usually focused on, it is something I’d actually have to think about. When I read this question, it tells me to dig deeper and unveil my personal goals.

For my first magical genie wish, I wish that something in my life would be constant. Friends don’t stay; Boys don’t stay; My happiness never stays. I simply want a friend who will be there for me when I need them, someone who I really feel like I can trust. Some might say that the best people are standing right in front of me but because I’m too busy looking for something else, I take them for granted. Well sorry life, but there aren’t that many people in front of me. Continue reading “Wishing on a Star // Writing Prompt: Entry 5”

A Beautiful Bracelet with a Cause

Happy One Month of Blogging to Me! Yesterday was August 10th, which means that one month ago I sat on my laptop and began writing my first blog post. Since then I’ve changed this blog an incredible amount and I’ve learned so much. I want to thank all of my amazing followers for helping me to fall in love with blogging each and every day.

Why not show your support in style? While on a retreat, I noticed a booth of beautiful, beaded bracelets. br1
