Mare's Music Monday

Did you catch the MTV VMAs last night?  You know I love my award shows and this one never disappoints.  You can always catch crazy outfits and antics. I thought I would share some of my highlights. 
Let's start with the outfits.  I love the above three: Britney, Demi and Taylor.  Last night was all about the cut-outs and skin showing with colour and sparkles.  So fun!  
My favourite performances were Macklemore (loved the Kool & the Gang cameo and the choreography), Demi Lovato (girl ROCKED!) and Justin Bieber (yes, I just said that). 
Now, let's talk Miley.
 She had a TON of outfits last night but these three are my faves.  I am sure there are people who were shocked by her hosting the awards and her behaviour.  But, she's just being Miley.  She hosted the night exactly as I expected she would, with flair, freedom of expression and a lot of skin.  What I didn't expect was her announcing her entire new album is streaming for free online! 
As for Kanye, really, I have not much to say.  He hates award shows, yet doesn't like to be left out.  He basically gave MTV a huge middle finger with last night's "speech" and I felt like Taylor shouldn't have put herself in that situation.  That's great she's forgiven him, and I thought for a second he was going to apologize.  But then it got weird, annoying and ridiculous. Stop giving him chances. He's a brilliant artist but that's it.
What were your favourites of the show last night?

Wise Word Wednesday

This quote for the week is something that definitely speaks to me.  I often find myself hurt or annoyed by another person's behaviour and have to work to shake it off.  We can only control ourselves and our reactions to others.  Some you can eliminate from your life and move on but others are there, not going anywhere whether they are co-workers, family or mutual friends.  How you choose to react definitely shows character.  In my experience most people have no idea how much their behaviour affects others.  It's up to you to find peace without letting others affect you.  It's a work in progress, but worth it.

Update on VLOGUST

I am doing VLOGUST!! This means I am vlogging every day in August! I explain all about it in my Apology and Announcement video:

So, yay! I am vlogging every day this month.  As I explain in the above video, I didn't want to edit and upload while I was exploring New York.  So, prepare for a flurry of vlogs to pop up in your subscription box on YouTube!  To catch you up, I started the month with a bang at the Taylor Swift concert in Vancouver:

 I had a day to spend with Emilie before heading to New York so, obviously, we went to Target! 

So, that brings you up to date on Vlogust! I will be posting the next vlogs daily on my channel, so make sure to subscribe! Also, let me know if there is anything specific you would like to see this month. oxox Mare
