‘Stranger Things’ Season 3 Will Make You Feel American

Bella Breakdown Netflix just released the “Stranger Things” Season 3 trailer and I am hyped! There is no show that makes me yearn more for the good ol’ days in America than ‘Stranger Things’. I mean, come on! It has USA stamped all over it, with a classic 80’s theme, Halloween monsters that represent the darkness in all of us, awkward middle school moments, suburbia at it’s finest, and not so subtle red and blue coloring and symbolism. The trailer indicated that Season 3 would continue to play with our nationalist, deeply nostalgic hearts. It begins with a short...

‘Queer Eye’ Is Back And Better Than Ever

Bella Breakdown Our favorite makeover artists are back on Netflix, ready to change more people’s lives, and I for one cannot wait to binge watch the new season of Queer Eye. The cast is still the same fab five, with Johnathan doing hair and makeup, Antoni cooking up a storm, Karamo giving fabulous advice, Tan dressing to impress, and Bobby working his booty off to redecorate the whole house. The reason why Queer eye is so great isn’t just because it is a makeover show. These five men find people who have been through hardships and are really low...

Why I Love March Madness

Bella Breakdown If you hail from a University or College that has a good basketball team, chances are that you get roped into the thrill of March Madness every year, whether you are a current student, a recent graduate, or an alum of 50 years. Before I went to Gonzaga University, I couldn’t have cared less about basketball. In my mind (and out loud for everyone to hear) I would wonder, “What’s the appeal? The men aren’t particularly hot. In fact they are all pretty gangly. And the teams score so many points that it doesn’t even seem like...

My Last Bachelor Post (I Swear!)

Bella Breakdown “The Bachelor” is finally over, and all of our questions have been answered. We know who Colton ended up with, who the next Bachelorette is, whether or not Colton lost his virginity (I think…?), and, most importantly, why Colton jumped the fence. To give ya’ll an update, in the last three episodes, Colton told Cassie he was falling in love with her. Cassie was unsure of her feelings for Colton, and knew that she wouldn’t be ready for an engagement at the end of the show, so she left. Then, Colton put those football hops to good...

Bella Breakdown On Tuesday, fifty people were accused by federal prosecutors of the largest college admissions scandal to date. These people were charged for attempting to illegally secure spots at eight extremely competitive schools, Yale, Georgetown, USC, UCLA, Stanford, Wake Forest, UT, and USD. The scam revolves around thirty-three wealthy parents, many of them famous, using million dollar bribes to find a side door into these schools. They hired William Singer, a business man from California, who promised them that he had ways to get their children into elite schools. Singer was paid around $25 million. The parents essentially...

How An App Can Save You Money

Bella Breakdown As a young millennial with a job that supports me, my immediate inclination when I get my pay check is to spend, spend, spend. There are few things I enjoy more than a nice dinner or an online shopping spree. Therefore, for my first three years as a real adult, I was often living beyond my means. For those of you that don’t know what that phrase means, I was often spending about as much as I was making. My savings account was not substantial, to say the least. However, a few months ago I read a...

Hannah Brown Becomes Next Bachelorette… Intriguing Choice, ABC

Bella Breakdown I’m not going to lie. Hannah B becoming the next bachelorette surprised me at first. But then again, #Bachelornation loves a controversy. I mean, hello! Why do you think they keep the people who stir up drama around for so long? ABC chose Colton because of his virgin status and Becca because of how she was wronged. Both of their stories incited a lot of talk. And now, we have Hannah B. At first, she may not seem controversial. Her innocent, playful southern accent and “down for whatever” attitude exude classic “Bachelorette”. But, if you watched the...
