Living My Best Life Tour: Aly & AJ 2019

Hey Guys!

I hope that everyone is doing amazing! As you know, I'm starting a new series on my blog called the "Living My Best Life Tour" and it chronicles all of my fun endeavors on my journey to healthiness and happiness. This is the second installment in that series, discussing my experience witnessing the live performance of my all-time favorite Indie-pop duo, Aly & AJ, with my play sister Ariel.

First and foremost, I will say that the entire show was iconic, to say the least, and I would do it all over again 100 times if I could. I literally shouted the lyrics alongside them to almost every single song they played and was perfectly entertained! With standing room only, the House of Blues was PACKED to the point of being shoulder to shoulder with fellow fans jamming out alongside the killer sister duo. We were all enamored of the combination of edgy navy pants suits with black booties, flawless vocals and their ability to do all this while playing the heck out of the piano and guitar!

The fun fact of this situation is that Aly & AJ's debut album, "Into the Rush," was one of my very first CD's that I'd ever gotten. I was given that along with Hilary Duff's debut album, "Metamorphasis," for Christmas when I was about 11 by my mom. That was over 12 years ago and I still cherish every song on that collection. Their second album, "Insomniatic," was also gifted to me two years later and I could not have enjoyed it more. 

Needless to say, to see them rock out on stage to my old-time favorites like "Rush," "Closure," "Chemicals React," and do a closing encore of "Potential Break Up Song" was a true dream and I am so glad I got to experience it. 

When I went to this concert, I was days off from cutting off the "love of my life" who I thought was everything I ever wanted and fantasized. It was soul-crushing, to say the least, when it all came crashing down after about of year of on-and-off dealings. But, I can honestly say that going to this event sucked the depression out of me and made me forget about him for a couple of hours. And THAT was beyond therapeutic. 

Thank you so much to Aly & AJ for giving us fans an unforgettable experience!

About Me

Hey there! Thanks for stopping by! I'm Calynn, 20x Award Winning businesswoman, media personality and former pageant queen (Miss United States Universe Tourism 2021, Miss World America Nation 2020). I started this blog when I was barely 15 years old in January 2011 as a supplement to my application to the retail business internship at the downtown Chicago Nordstrom mall! I stayed there for 3 years learning the fundamentals of everything fashion business from sales and marketing to media and modeling. This was a phenomenal foundation to my career as it gave me the rudimentary knowledge and competitive edge that I needed to be successful!  From there, I went on to college and obtained my first degree in Business and Humanities (the arts and social sciences). I wrote as a freelance journalist and editor for several large publications and hosted live cable television for two years. I walked countless red carpets being a VIP media guest at major industry events all over the country a

38 Underrepresented World Wide Talents That You Need to Know!

In a world where so many great entrepreneurs and artists can become famous at the act of one viral video online, it's easy to get lost in the misconception that with social media's "power," anybody who is talented is already known. After all, it isn't as difficult to gain exposure and "get big" as it was 20 years ago before the Internet's Massive Media takeover, right? Partially yes, however, social media also makes the market 10x as saturated as it was 20 years ago. Thus, are you really that much further ahead if all of your competition has the means to one-up you, free of cost and inconvenience, just by posting to their online accounts? It's a lot to think about. That is why we here at The Fresh Faces Project work hard to make sure that the artists and entrepreneurs and do-gooders who are underrepresented and don't get the fame and acknowledgment that their talents merit are given a platform. That platform is us. When creating thi

The Search For "Mr. Right": 2 Years On Every App Taught Me This

  Over the last 2 years, I've been conducting what some could call a "social experiment." I have been single (by choice) for the better part of the last 2.5 years and had an epiphany a little over 2 years ago to give online dating services a shot! While it hasn't been the most miraculous experience, it has certainly been a valuable one! And, I strongly recommend that anyone who is looking to settle down with a life partner, give them a try! Maybe you don't need to sign up for almost every app known to man like I have LOL, but at least try the major ones. This blog is a detailed account of my findings as a young, sweet, successful woman with online dating.  For clarity, I've added the below chart for you to understand who I am and what I have to offer versus what I am seeking. This foundational knowledge is key to comprehending the results of my "experiment." I, as a 26 year old woman who is the CEO of a successful small business (
