Yesterday, the 2017 Billboard Music Awards were on last night and many musicians, as well as actors, were out to perform and receive awards. The performances and the outfits shown on the carpet were sights to see. Everyone came dressed in their best and were definitely ready to impress. While watching there were definitely memorable moments so here are my top 10 moments from the night

1. The many wardrobe changes of Ludacris and Vanessa Hudgens

These two came dressed to impress. Each time they reappeared on the screen, it was always with a new outfit. The rapper and singer made sure to complement each other when it came to the outfits.


2. Vanessa Hudgens singing Celine Dion

It can now be said that Vanessa does not back down from a challenge, no matter what. Early on in the show, native to the BBMA's, Ludacris, challenged his co-host Vanessa Hudgens to sing her favorite karaoke song by Celine Dion and she did not disappoint.

3. Camilla Cabello's solo performance

This is the first time Cabello has been back on stage to perform since she took her separation from Fifth Harmony. I had no clue of what to expect but was surprised with her performance. Her debut as a solo performance had a definite wow factor and sets her up for her album release that is expected soon.

4. Miley Cyrus performance of her new song "Malibu"

Miley has definitely gone back to her country roots with her new song. She came out with a new appearance: dressed in all white and long hair--providing the audience with country music vibes. The song took me back to the "Hannah Montana Movie" when Miley goes back to her hometown in Tennessee. She has definitely revamped herself and I can't wait to see what else she has in store.

5. P Diddy celebrates Biggie's Birthday

If anyone can come on stage and speak for more than 5 minutes, it's P-Diddy. P-Diddy reminded everyone of the icon and that he should be celebrated, not only on his 45th birthday but on any day that we listen to his music.

6. Celine Dion celebrating Titanic

Who doesn't love the iconic song to the movie that made us all fall in love with Leonardo DiCaprio? Dion gave a spectacular performance to the song "My Heart Will Go On." However, her performance was not the only highlight of the show. The crowd shocked Dion as they all sang along with her creating a memorable moment for all.

7. Drake's outside performance

Drake always goes outside of the box to give a spectacular performance. At the award show, he took his performance outside to the Bellagio Fountain with fire and water coordinated to his song "Gylachester." Drake broke boundaries with this performance and broke records with the number of awards he has won.

8. K-Pop group BTS group wins award

Korean pop music is making its way up the charts in America. Being a fan of K-Pop myself I was elated when this seven-member group BTS won an award as Top Social Artist. BTS displays the influence music can have. Korean music is finally getting international appreciation in the United States

Even the members are getting some praise with their carpet debut. The internet has come to love BTS especially their member Jin who has been named "Third Guy From The Left"

9. FGL and John Legend perform "H.O.L.Y"

An odd trio, but an amazing performance nonetheless. FGL who won for Top Country Song came to perform H.O.L.Y with the legend himself, John Legend. The three went on stage and sung their hearts out, giving the audience a mellow yet unforgettable performance.

10. Prince Michael Jackson coming out as a presenter

I adore Michael Jackson and his music. His legacy continues to live on not just through his music but through his children. One of the best highlights of my night was to see Michael's oldest son Prince come on stage to present an award. It's been forever since anyone has seen them, so to see them doing well was amazing for me. It was a great way to end the night.

But we still say Roll MF Tide!

We all have a love-hate relationship with a 2:30 p.m. kickoff at Bryant Denny Stadium, especially when it's 94 degrees.

1. Immediate sadness

What do you mean I have to wake up at 9 a.m. to get ready?

2. Bracing yourself for the worst

It's a marathon not a sprint ladies and gentleman.

3. Accepting the game is going to happen

Rain or shine we are all in that student section screaming our heads off.

4. Trying to wear the least amount clothes possible without being naked on the Quad

Is it me or does it get 10 times more hot the minute you walk on to the quad?

5. Shedding a tear when you walk out your front door once you feel the heat and humidity on your skin

Is it fall yet?

6. Drowning your sorrows inside a Red Solo cup at 11:30 a.m. at a fraternity tailgate

Maybe I'll forget about the humidity if I start frat hopping now.

7. Getting in line to go through security realizing it'll take an hour to actually get inside Bryant Denny

media.giphy.com

More security is great and all but remember the heat index in Alabama? Yeah, it's not easy being smushed like sardines before even getting into Bryant Denny.

8. Feeling the sweat roll down every part of your body

Oh yeah I am working on my tan and all but what is the point of showering before kick off?

9. Attempting to cheer on the Tide, but being whacked in the head with a shaker by the girl behind you.

Shakers are tradition, but do we have to spin it around in a full 360 every two seconds? I have a migraine from just thinking about it.

10. Leaving a quarter into the game because Alabama is kicking ass and you're about to have a heat stroke.

I'll watch the rest in air conditioning thank you very much!

We may not love the 2:30 kickoffs but Roll Tide!

I Made Emma Chamberlain's Mediocre Vegan Cookies, And They're Pretty Incredible

Emma and her vegan cookies have made their way into my heart, and are here to stay.

One day, I went down the black hole that is 'YouTube at 3 am' and discovered my favorite social media influencer of all time: Emma Chamberlain. I started binge watching her videos every night for about a week, where I came across her "Cooking With Emma" series. I decided that I wanted to give her vegan antics a go for myself.

I've never cooked or baked anything with the intention of it being vegan, so not only is that new territory for me, but I've never even eaten a vegan cookie. The only reason I'm doing this is because Emma did, and she is aesthetic goals.

To start the journey of vegan baking, I took to Pinterest, just like Emma, and found this recipe to use. Although the video that inspired all of this used a gluten free recipe, I opted for only vegan, because I'm allergic to most of the ingredients that make things gluten-free.


In true Emma style, I used a whisk to combine the wet ingredients together, making sure to use her special technique.


Then, I did the same thing with the dry ingredients.


After that, I dumped everything together and combined all of the ingredients.


Once they were combined, I chopped up a vegan chocolate bar, because Emma and I like chocolate chunk cookies, not chocolate chip, there's a difference.


Now that everything is combined, I made balls of dough and stuck it on a pan, and baked them while I binged more Emma, because what else would I be doing in my spare time?



The recipe said to make the balls a lot smaller, but we aren't perfect, so I made them gigantic. In my head, I thought the worst thing that could happen was it turn into one big cookie, but that's a whole other video you need to watch.

I took them out of the oven, and they were brown on the top, but still a little doughy. At this point I was tired of waiting and eager to eat them, so I disappointingly set them aside to cool, which only lasted a minute or so before I snagged one up to try.



The taste was definitely one I've never associated with cookies, and came to the conclusion that if I decided to go vegan, it would be doable with these cookies and Emma Chamberlain by my side.



Emma inspired me to get out of my comfort zone, which is a reoccurring theme throughout her channel, and I'm happy to be apart of it. She taught me that even if mediocre cookies is all you have, eat them with pride because you made them yourself.
