Well, 2012 is almost over, and with that comes the endless lists of the best and worst things of the year. I thought I’d share with you some of my favorite (and least favorite) songs, TV shows, fashion trends and more.
You heard me right- I chose “Call Me Maybe” as the best song of the year. Yes, it was overplayed. No, she can’t really sing. But you can’t deny that it’s catchy. And I have a soft spot for the corny lyrics, “Before you came into my life I missed you so bad.” Pop song lyrics at their best.
For TV, I became addicted to the train wreck that was “Breaking Amish”. I don’t care if it was staged or not, it was extremely entertaining. I got into “Workaholics” back when my brother lived at home and watched it and I have to say it’s hilarious. Lastly, “The New Normal” features a great cast with heartfelt and funny moments.
My best fashion purchase was the pair of leopard jeans I found in the girl’s section of Target (outfit post here) and my best beauty purchase was Benefit’s High Beam (review here). This highlighter is the best out there- it makes you glow!
My three favorite albums of 2012 are a mixed bunch. My favorite band reunited and recorded a CD (The Early November’s “In Currents”), Mumford & Sons continued to get the attention they deserve with “Babel”, and my girl crush intensified with the release of Lana Del Rey’s “Born to Die”.
You couldn’t turn on the radio in 2012 without hearing the annoying techno/electronic pop/whatever you call it song “Titanium” by DJ David Guetta ft. Sia. Not only was the song overplayed, but I can’t understand a word the girl says. In fact, I didn’t know she was saying ‘Titanium” until my boyfriend told me the name of the song. Whoops.
For TV, I cannot stand that “Two and a Half Men” is still on the air. I used to be a huge Ashton Kutcher fan, but now I just think he’s a douche. Who still watches that crap? I gave “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” a shot and had to turn it off mid-episode, that’s how bad it is. “The Neighbors” followed up one of the new shows I was watching so I tuned in. It was terrible. I loved Jamie Gertz on “Still Standing”, so it makes me sad this is the best role she can get now.
The worst fashion trend has to be Harem pants. You look like MC Hammer. Just stop. And the worst beauty trend by far was those long, pointy, claw-like nails that Rihanna and Lady Gaga wore. How do they type/eat/wipe their ass with those things?
And the hot messes of 2012 were Tanning Mom (looks like she has Nutella on her face), Lindsay Lohan (too many bad things to list on here) and Amanda Bynes (she had such promise as a child actor, what happened?)
What were your best and worst things of 2012?
