Clearly as a big fan of Lady Gaga, I knew that I would go see the remake of A Star is Born, which came out here on October 5th. But even if you're not a fan of Lady Gaga and think she'll ruin the movie (which, how dare you, haha), it was really such a great movie that everyone should go see it!
The concert performances throughout the movie were especially done really well, and the sound quality adds to the feeling of being at a live show. There's so many different layers to the story between Jackson (Bradley Cooper) and Ally (Lady Gaga) that I think everyone will be able to relate to some aspect of it. While technically it is a remake that has been done a few times before, the original music and the way the story has been adapted by Bradley Cooper and his fellow writers was done really well, in my opinion.
The soundtrack mixes together songs from the movie, songs that didn't make it into the movie, and key dialogue that sets you up for certain points in the story. I love that it's almost like seeing the movie again in a different way. Lady Gaga is obviously an amazing singer, but Bradley Cooper's extensive voice training is really impressive here as well. Everyone go see the movie (multiple times if you're like me) and get the soundtrack ASAP!

It's no secret that I love fall, and basically all the fun stuff in stores that come out for the season, haha. I also love finding other ways to celebrate everything good about the fall, so I was very happy to see Brittany Viklund brought back her cute bucket list a few weeks ago!
Downloading the bucket list is free, and it's a fun way to make sure you're celebrating the season in big and little ways, which I love. It's a nice reminder to do all the fun things before we get into the cold winter season!
