MCM: Riverdale’s Charles Melton

Do you know what day it is????? It’s Man Crush Monday and this one is long deserved. IScreenshot_20190311-152729 should have featured this guy right after Cole Sprouse. Today, I am rewriting my wrongs. He needs to know that I see him. I’ve always seen him, and if one day we cross paths the answer is yes. Yes, I will be Mrs. Charles Melton. Hey Playlisters! I binged watched a little of Riverdale this weekend. I wasn’t able to even make a dent because duty calls. I was able to watch 2 episodes and I had to ask myself. Well, honestly I asked Veronica but we all know she can’t hear me. I acknowledge that it is more the writer’s fault because she isn’t real. But, I have to know, Veronica how do you work around Reggie and not want to jump his bones? It boggles me. So, I’ll ask the actress that plays Veronica, Camila Mendes. Camila, how do you work around your boyfriend and not want to abandon the storyline. Camila, you’ve made a stellar choice. If you would have dated Archie in real life, then I would have to take you off of my faves list.

What can I say? Charles Melton is HOTT. Riverdale, if the only reason you hired him is Screenshot_20190311-152753eye candy then Camila and I thank you. I mean, yes. He is a great actor, but besides that…he’s hot. Sorry to go into a rabbit hole right now, but Veronica…girl. Reggie is 6 feet. Archie is only 5’11, and he wines a lot. Your dad wants to kill him. Reggie is the obvious choice. Again, I get it…the writers. I know. Anywho this leads me back on track with what I was saying. Charles Melton is in the 6-foot club.  Again Camila, excellent choice. That’s why I like her. She makes excellent choices.

Ok back to his talent. He will be in a few upcoming projects. The Sun Is Also a Star co-starring another MIP fave, Yara Shahidi. It is in theaters in May 2019. He will also be in the highly anticipated Bad Boys for Life with Will Smith and Martin Lawrence; set to be in theaters 2020. I’m glad he’s making great career moves because I’ll be able to look at him longer. So other than he’s talented, tall and hott that’s it for your MCM.

The No Hangover Rules

I’m no doctor. I just have a few years of experience under my belt that can help with those nights you know you’ve gone too far. You know, the night when you have that one drink that you know was past your limit. The exact moment you down it, you know that you will feel it in the morning. I’ve been in that situation a few too many times and so have my friends. I used to have that unforgiving hangover in college and noticed in my late 20’s and 30’s that it no longer happened. I truly don’t get the nasty morning-after effect, and there is a reason. I took on some habits that actually help me now to this day. So here is my playlist of things to prevent a hangover:

Light it Up – Major Lazer

Electrolytes! This can be pickle juice, Smart Water, a Gatorade or even your kids leftover Pedialyte. When you play sports it’s important to rehydrate yourself. You need to replenish your body, and sodium and potassium help the cause. When sweating you lose your potassium, sodium, and water. Urine isn’t necessarily sweat. Sweat is water, salts, and urea. Urine is what is filtered out through your kidneys (toxins and waste in liquid form). However, you do lose the same sodium and potassium through urination. When you drink alcohol heavily, you urinate a lot. It would only make sense to grab something with electrolytes in it. Sports drinks, Smart Water, Pedialyte or even pickle juice will help with this.

Medicine – Queen Naija

Ibuprofen is used to treat headaches, muscle pain/discomfort, and minor injuries. Although drinking isn’t necessarily an injury; heavy drinking can cause discomfort the morning after. Taking two Advil before a night of drinking can prevent that knocking headache the next morning. It can even help with any inflammation that may occur after your binge.

Vitamin D- Ludacris

Multi-Vitamins have to be my biggest secret weapon of all secret weapons. Alcohol is known to deplete nutrients in your body. Nutrients include, According to an article by Nourish, “vitamins B1, B6, B12, folic acid, zinc, magnesium and many more. These nutrients are responsible for many metabolic processes of the body, including helping the liver to detox effectively.” I take supplements every day which is why I don’t get hangovers like I used to. However, I definitely make sure to take a few after a heavier night of drinking. I wake up ready for the world. Whereas my friends who don’t are cutting me the side eye and wearing sunglasses the next day.

 

If you follow my few rules to the no hangover (or minimum hangover) cure, you will be on your way. I have done these things for years and trust me, I was good enough to work out the next day. I’m not guaranteeing that you will be motivated, but you will be able to. Sometimes a hangover is a matter of science and outsmarting your body. Hopefully, you will come across my little article and thank me in the morning. As always thank you for supporting the blog! Don’t forget to Like, Comment and Subscribe!

My Ex Watches All My Snaps

Hey Buddies, it’s been awhile. You’ve been searching for answers on Google. Your Ex has been doing something suspicious; you sought out the girl with all the answers. I think I know what you want to know. Let me set up the scene for you. You finally ended things with your ex, or they’ve ended things with you.  It’s been a few months and you noticed that your Ex watches your social media like teenagers watch Riverdale. Every time you post a picture or a video their name appears on the list of people who have watched your story. They’re stalking you, obviously. So, here I am with my cape to give you a playlist of reasons why you’re hunted by the ghost of your Ex.

Want That Old Thing Back – Biggie Smalls

Your Ex misses you. It’s that simple. They are trying to figure out the best way to pop up “just to see how you’re doing”.  They weren’t ready to let you go yet. Or at least they thought they were ready to let you go, and discovered they weren’t. So, here they are stalking you trying to figure out when they should drop in and send you a message.

Case of the Ex -Mya

They want to see how your life is fairing without them. We all leave our Exes with the hope that they are doing horrible without us. We hope that our former significant others can’t even tie their shoes without us. So what’s the best way to know whether the Ex is in despair because we knew they’d be sorry we left? That’s right, stalking. You have to do a little investigative work to know that the Exes life is falling apart.

I Miss You – Clean Bandit

They Miss you, but they don’t necessarily want you back. They like to reminisce about the times you shared together. However, in the words of Taylor Swift “We are never ever ever getting back together”. Sometimes you don’t want your Ex back. You just like to see what they’re up to every once in a while. They are simply just watching you to make sure you are ok. There is no malice, it’s over and they recognize that. It’s just that occasionally it’s nice just to see how an old flame is doing. What is the best way to find out without having to call? Stalk them a little bit.

At the end of it all, if you really want to know why your Ex is perusing your social media you can ask. They may think you’re reaching out; chances are if you want to know then asking why they watch all your stories is an excuse. If not you wouldn’t have taken the time out to stumble upon this blog (wags eyebrows).

Midpoint Check In: Switching Gears

At this point, I’ve been running My Infinite Playlist for a little over half a year. I’ve happy turn up GIF by Originals-sourcelearned somethings about blogging, running a site and the direction in which the blog is going.  So far I have seen a little increase in dedicated readership. Which is what I would like. I want the reader who will stay with us through the journey. The passive readers are great too. I’m confident in the content that I create on this site, and I am sure once a member of our target audience experiences the world of M.I.P they will stick around for good.

“We are from all parts of the world and we like to travel the parts we have never been. Women of Color forge into areas that aren’t seen as traditionally ours…”

New Themes:

I realized the true direction I wanted to take this blog. It started off as an interracial blog, wonder woman beyonce GIF-sourceand I would still like to keep that as a topic that we visit. However, I really would like to focus on the overall theme that black women and other women of color are non-monolithic. We are all different, we are into different music, style of dress, dating patterns. We live alternative lifestyles and we are even into alternative forms of beauty. We can be vegan, vegetarian, pescatarian. We are from all parts of the world and we like to travel the parts we have never been. Women of Color forge into areas that aren’t seen as traditionally ours, like beer brewing and tattooing. K-music, J-music, Latin Pop, Afro Beat, EDM, and rock are just some of the genres where we are widespread and share an interest in. We are feminist, traditionalist, minimalist, members of the 1%, political powerhouses, Rap songstresses, and women extraordinaires. We are all of these things under the umbrellas of being people of color and being women. We can be any label we want to apply to ourselves and not just the label assigned to us. We are allowed that basic human right.

“I want to give a different perspective to people who have confined us to a box according to our assigned gender and race. “

Forging Ahead:

source (6)

So in the continuity of this blog, I would like to document those experiences of women. Especially, women of color who are forging in directions that aren’t traditionally ours to be had. I want to give a different perspective to people who have confined us to a box according to our assigned gender and race. We will continue to be all of the sexy millennial fun of man crush Monday, and we will mix it with the radical faces of women who refuse to be labeled.

“I will work hard to stay true to the new vision and direction we’re headed”

Hey You, Yes You. We’re Looking for you!

We are still looking for contributors that share our vision and that can offer a view into giphy (72)the world of women doing things differently. We also want people who can tell their personal experiences and stories of breaking free or living alternatively. I’m excited to share this new direction with you, and I’m thrilled to share a safe space for women of color to be who they are.  As always, thank you for supporting the blog on WordPress and Social Media. I will work hard to stay true to the new vision and direction we’re headed. I love you Playlisters, Besos!

MCM: The Kissing Booth’s Jacob Elordi aka Google, How old is Jacob Elordi?

Guess what day it isssssss???? It’s everyone’s favorite Man Crush Monday and boy do I Screenshot_20180609-235024have a Man Crush for you. I’ll give you a hint, you guys practically shut down google looking him up. Break the Internet anyone? Yeah, your searches went from anything like How old is Jacob Elordi to How tall is Jacob Elordi with Does Jacob Elordi have a girlfriend somewhere nestled in between. He play’s the very hunky Noah Flynn boyfriend to Shelly Evans on the Netflix hit, The Kissing Booth and in real life, he is the Boyfriend to the beautiful Joey King. Be jealous.

Jacob Elordi is one of the stars of Netflix most-watched Screenshot_20180609-235309original American teen romantic comedy alongside the very talented Joey King who you may remember from movies like Wish Upon and Crazy, Stupid, Love. I swear I wasn’t alone when I saw how tall he was in the movie (6’3) and of Legal age ( 1997, thank God…amiright??). In fact, I knew I wasn’t because I got on facebook later and saw a crap ton of statuses dedicated to, The Kissing Booth and Jacob Elordi simultaneously with the same questions. It made my heart pitter patter to know that my sisterens were so connected with my train of thought. We are of one mind (sort of).  I think I was just happy to know that if I ever ran into Jacob Elordi in real life and he was single (and I wouldn’t get arrested for trying to lick his abs…jk, jk lol) that my possible boyfriend would be taller than me. That’s (one of) the only thing/s a girl could ask for. Jacob Elordi, I would like to climb you like a tree (again j/k. j/k haha) and also I have a crush on you.

As always, thank you for supporting My Infinite Playlist. Check out more photos of Jacob below. Please don’t forget to comment, follow, subscribe and like us on Word Press and Social Media. I really love you guys to pieces. Besos!

Why there is no MCM this week

Hey Playlisters, I’ve been floating the idea for a while to have a Zaddy of the Week that isn’t a celebrity (as of yet, lol). Every week I feature someone who is known in the social/media sphere. This week, I wanted to find a guy who is a little less known. If you know of someone or if you yourself would like to be featured please email me at pinkhairblogger@gmail.com or shoot me a DM via Instagram or our facebook page. In the email tell me a little about yourself (first name, social media, age, schooling, job, hobbies, past and or current charities, relationship status and any additional info you would like to include). I really will like to make this a thing so feel free to reblog, repost, share this blog. If you submit and you’re not chosen this week there is still a possibility that you are featured for an upcoming blog. I would really like to make this a thing on the blog. I took a slight gamble by not featuring anyone for MCM since that’s sort of my thing.  I’m really excited to hear from you guys! As always thank you for supporting the blog and don’t forget to check us out on social media! Besos!

MCM: On My Block’s Diego Tinoco

Screenshot_20180423-145948WHAT DAY IS IT?!!! It’s everyone’s favorite, MCM. Where I provide you with one person to thirst after. You know him as Lil’ Spooky, and I knew him as underage…until I found out he wasn’t. It totally went from, “Oh, he’s cute”. After discovering he was legal it was, “Heeeeyyyyy Spooky Jr.”.

Screenshot_20180423-145815I mean, provided the guy who plays his very sexy cholo older brother is my first, On My Block, love(I love you Spooky)…he definitely comes in a hard second. I recently come across a few of his Instagram account where he provides some very lovely modelesque pictures for us to fangirl over, and trust me I’m appreciative. I actually made him my Man Crush Sunday on my Instagram account. I think I was a little more than overjoyed when I saw that he liked the post (call me, lol).

Basically, I said all of this to say that I’m really thankful that he is old enough for me to write this post on. Screenshot_20180423-150053I was steering clear of it for a little bit until I confirmed his legality. Lord knows I don’t need to be locked up because I wrote a post on a 15-year old, lol. Also, gross. Cesar, I can’t wait to watch you and Spooky on the next season of On My Block. Diego Tinoco, I have a little crush on you.

Hey guys! Thank you for reading the blog. You can follow us on our facebook page, Tumblr and Instagram pages. Don’t forget to like, follow and share us on WordPress and Social Media. Have the best week of all Winter-Spring weeks! Check out Diego’s pictures below.  Besos!
