In honor of seeing Oz The Great and Powerful on Saturday I decided to dedicate today’s Music Monday to Mariah Carey‘s song for the movie, “Almost Home.” It’s a very understated song, which I like about it, yet it still shows off her vocal ability. I also chose it because I’m home for Spring Break so I thought the title was slightly fitting.
As I stated in my previous blog post, I loved the movie! The music video features clips from the movie between clips of Mariah singing with a very powerful wind machine, I might add. The song isn’t in the movie but is the very last song played in the credits, which is disappointing since it’s a great song!

As I’ve previously discussed, Justin Bieber is my roommate. Well, actually, it’s a cardboard cutout but he’s still technically my roommate. But the real Biebs released a music video for his song “Beauty and a Beat” two weeks ago and I just got around to watching it.
The video is set in the style of a home video, with Justin filming himself at a waterpark with dancers and such. If all waterparks were that fun and had celebrities, I’d be there every day! The video also features Nicki Minaj, who raps a verse toward the end. Overall, I thought it was a fun concept for a video and I definitely haven’t seen anything like it.
Over the fall break weekend I drove to Chicago to visit my friend Hayley, who goes to Loyola. The weather was extremely rainy and cold so I had to bundle up and drive carefully to get there!
On my way there!
Hayley had a dance performance at Loyola’s new performing arts center so I was happy to attend and show my support! It was part of one of her dance classes and they did a modern dance routine and I was definitely impressed!
After her performance, we went downtown to go shopping! I needed to go to Apple to get a new phone charger and to H&M to get a new sweater for the cold weather! But first we stopped by Macy’s and there I saw Nicki Minaj‘s new perfume/fragrance stand so of course I had to take a picture! I didn’t buy any since it’s for girls but I at least smelled it.
Overall, I had a fun time and can’t wait to go back to the Windy City (literally since the weather was so awful)!
Tomorrow starts the first day of finals and I’m trying desperately to contain my excitement. Cue the sarcasm. I have one each day this week which is really not motivating me to do anything. Instead, procrastination is getting the best of me and I’ve been looking up videos of Sophia Grace and Rose online instead of studying!
Don’t worry, I’ll start studying AFTER my nap! Thankfully I think I know the material pretty well for my tests so I’m trying not to be too worried! One of my friends has 3 finals in one day! So at least I’m lucky enough to have them spread out!
Well, I’m off to sleep/study!
Here’s a video of Sophia Grace & Rosie that I stumbled upon while studying! Here they’re meeting Nicki Minaj:
