The Mandy Moore Photo That’s Giving Me All The Feels Right Now

Mandy Moores latest baby photo is giving me all the feels!

If there’s one person in the television industry who seems like the real deal, it’s Mandy Moore. I imagine her childhood to be filled with marshmallows and unicorns. She just seems so down home sweet.

Her adult life seems to be going pretty great, too. She has a hit television series (This is Us). A brand new home. Her first album in a decade. A talented (and based on everything she says on IG), good husband. And a brand new baby, too.

Girl is living in high cotton, as they say in the South. I’m divided between hashtag happy for her, and hashtag jealous.

Out of all her success the picture that sums up the meaning of love, life and family is this one. Her little guy smiling back at his daddy. Warning: it’ll melt your heart.

If that photo doesn’t do it for you, the next one is sure to. According to Mandys post.The couple named their baby boy early on in her pregnancy. In true “this is us” fashion, the way she got to that name is in a very Hallmark moment kind of way.

It was last August when @taylordawesgoldsmith and I found out we’re having a boy (it’s also Taylor’s birth month) and we always loved the name…so it was settled very early on in our book. Then for our anniversary in November, T gifted me with this blanket with the “A” (for Amanda) made from extra material from my wedding dress and “T” (for Taylor) from his wedding shirt. Felt like a very fitting amalgamation of our whole story. I can wait to pass this on to our sweet August one day. 💙💙💙💙

That is definitely a “This is Us” moment.

It’s been 24 years since Jennifer Lopez played Selena

It’s been 24 years since Jennifer Lopez played Selena

I can’t believe it but it’s been 24 years since Jennifer Lopez captivated audiences with her performance of Selena Quintanilla-Perez in the movie, Selena.

Selena is the story of the short-lived life of music sensation Selena and her family, but it’s also a painful reminder that money can change those around you.

Selena was shot dead by a trusted family friend and business associate March 31, 1990. The murder and the aftermath played out on the news like a Lifetime movie. The root of the murder was money. (Of course)

Lopez earned a million dollars for her portrayal of Selena making her the first latin to earn over a million dollars for a film.

She deserved it. I can’t imagine anyone else who could have successfully represented Selena like Lopez did.

Selena taught Lopez how to perform

There’s no denying Selena helped make Lopez the star that she is, today—and the performer, too. I think Selena change the trajectory of Lopez’ career. She went from fly girl on In Living Color to JLO.

I had learned how to really become a performer and give everything I had to the audience.

JLO interview with Billboard magazine

The following are Instagram posts made my Jennifer Lopez in memory of the 24th anniversary of Selena.

This song makes me think of my sister

My sister loved Selena’s music. I had no idea who Selena was until she introduced me to her. My sister is now passed, too. When I hear this song I think of her.

Courteney Cox Shares Her 5-Minute Makeup Routine, and Her One Beauty Mistake

Courteney Cox Shares Her 5-Minute Makeup Routine, and Her One Beauty Mistake

One of the things I love about social media is that when used properly, we can learn from each other in ways we never could have before. And the celeb-status can get in on it, too.

Yesterday, Courteney Cox, popped up in my Instagram feed with her 5-minute makeup routine and a couple of confessions. The video starts off with Cox saying she’s always late. Anyone relate? Both hands raised, here. The other confession is that Cox got blue eyeliner tattooed on years ago “I don’t recommend that” she says.

What I really appreciate about this video is that Cox is personable. Down-to-earth. She comes across as if she just decided to give social media live, a shot.

She even uses a couple of beauty brands and tools you can buy from Target. With her gray roots and Target brands one could say, she’s just like us.

Cox is 56. While I always enjoy learning from women of all ages, as a midlifer, it’s nice to hear from women who might have similar skin experiences as I do.

Fully Vaccinated “I still don’t want you to hug me”

Dr. Michelle Hure, a California based Dermapathologist, warns followers not to let their guard down after getting vaccinated.

After getting her own vaccination she commented “Fully vaccinated (I still don’t want you to hug me).”

She went on to say “Now that many people are getting vaccinated (awesome!) I see they are starting to get more complacent with masking and distancing. I understand why. But just because you’re vaccinated, it doesn’t mean we are back to normal.”

She went on to say “The covid vaccine was developed and intended to prevent serious complications and death.”

Thank you for that reminder, Dr. Hure!

What Covid Vaccine Won’t Do

According to Dr. Hure the Covid vaccine won’t:

💉Protect you from getting Covid.

💉Keep you from spreading the virus to others if infected.

We need to remain vigilant and maintain proper masking and distancing.

Dr. Hure reported that besides feeling a little fatigued and having a sore arm she is feeling great!
