The most important Taylor Tuesday yet…

She’s done it again. Made our heart rates jump through the roof out of excitement, made our feet move and hips shake; and called out her haters once and for all.

Taylor’s new hit single off of her highly anticipated next album is a winner. On October 27th Taylor will release her 5th album aptly named 1989, the year Taylor was born. Shake It Off is the first song to be released off of her new album and we love it. Mostly because most of our dance moves are the same.

Check out the music video and dance along with us. And the rest of the world.




Good news this week!

If you’re a fan of Taylor and Selena’s friendship like me, then you will be happy to know they are friends once again! Apparently, there was a little tiff/feud/whatever you want to call it, but at the 2014 Met Gala a couple weeks ago, they set everything aside and had the best night together. They’ve been friends again ever since. Yay!

Selena even posted a video on her Instagram of the two of them dancing and captioned it:
“sometimes you wanna just be you with someone who knows all your secrets.”

And isn’t that the truth?! One of the best parts of friendship is being accepted just as you are and having the freedom to be just who you are – sometimes sad, weird, crazy, quiet, hangry, hilarious, or whatever else. I’m lucky enough to have found incredible friends and I don’t know what I’d do without them. That being said, I’m so glad Selena and Taylor can be that for each other! It doesn’t matter who you are – we ALL need solid friends.

Here’s to friendship!
And an excuse to post a cute friendship picture….















Taylor Swift wins the award for best Mother’s Day gift ever. She wrote her mom a song.

Don’t believe me? Check out “The Best Day” off of her Fearless CD. It’s an adorable song about times her mom has been there for her and loved her unconditionally. Most of us can agree that moms are the best, and since Mother’s Day is right around the corner, you should probably get busy writing that song for her.

Not a particularly good songwriter? Me neither. Let’s leave that one up to Taylor and get your mom some gorgeous jewelry instead! BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE!

Check out Kado Boutique before you run to the store for that really terrible necklace that says “mom” on it.* She knows she’s a mom; she was there when you were born. How about getting her something that gives back? Kado is an organization that is very near and dear to our hearts, and here’s a quick peak into why that is.

*If you already purchased said “mom” necklace, you should return it – unless it came from Kate Spade. Go ahead and skip the jewelry counters at Walmart and Target this year – you would be much better off getting her something from Kado. I promise.



I remember it like it was yesterday…


(Over the phone)

K: I have this brilliant plan.

C: What?!

K: We should go see Taylor Swift in Charlottesville in September.

C: Yesssssssssss.


Okay, so I don’t remember it like it was yesterday, because if I did, I would have remembered exactly what we said. And this is just a very basic framework of our conversation. I mean, come on, have you met me or Kylie? We like to talk. And we talk a lot and very fast when we are excited, which is exactly what we were when this discussion took place. So the memory is more of a blur.

One of the main things I remember about our plan was the ticket-buying experience. Kylie was our fearless leader (well just my fearless leader—Ashley had no clue what was going on. Not because she’s “slow,” but because we bought them without her knowing and surprised her with them later). Anyway, the tickets went fast. I mean REAL fast. Like 10 minutes after tickets were available online, things wouldn’t load, seats were gone, and we were trying to keep it together even though we feared seeing the two words every concert-goer is devastated to see: SOLD OUT.

But you all know how this story ends already. We DID get tickets and we had the most amazing time (we have the pictures to prove it).

The moral of my story is that one must be on their A-game if they are trying to buy Taylor tickets. Apparently, you must also have the fastest fingers and internet speed if you are trying to score a Taylor ticket for the RED tour at Shanghai’s Mercedes-Benz Arena in China. The show sold out in less than ONE MINUTE.
One. 1. Uno.
It happens to be the fastest ticket on-sale in Chinese history.
incREDible. (see what I did there?)

All I can say is that I am very glad that the good people of Virginia are much slower at buying tickets.



Taylor got a Tumblr! She’s a bit late to the game but hey, better late than never! So far her Tumblr is mostly Instagram pictures, but here’s hoping she starts posting even more. I love when my favorite artists give me another forum to stalk… I mean follow them on…

Anyway – if you want to see her adorable Tumblr the link is posted below.

Also, thanks Tay for making your Tumblr easy to find. We stalke… fans love it.



So, it turns out that even Taylor is a fan of lazy weekends.

She prefers to spend them walking around New York City with her cat, Meredith.

I wish I looked that good on lazy weekends.
I also wish I had a cute cat to spend my lazy weekends with…

Happy Tuesday!
