Free and Listen Up

May is almost here! This means up and coming artist Haley Reinhart's long-awaited debut album Listen Up is ready to launch on the 22nd. Have you ordered your copy yet? 

Here's her refreshing music video for her single "Free", where she's taking the spotlight at a cool retro diner to charm her way into your life. It's truly one-of-a-kind and very worth everyone's time.

For those who haven't seen it, this is the cover art for Listen Up. Doesn't it look like a fine vintage painting? :)

Addicted to "Ringer"

Every episode of Ringer has been intense with sizzling mysteries and groundbreaking cliffhangers, making the modern thriller with soap opera and light noir elements a TV treat. The heat will double up as the show comes to an end with the finale episode airing next Tuesday. Will this mark its demise or will it shoot its way to Season 2?

Regardless of the complex plot lines that demand viewers' non-stop attention to understand them, Ringer is a high concept series that is deliciously crafted with lush settings and a Frenchy soundtrack. But despite the CW Network's attempt at promoting it as a means of giving adult shows a home amidst its fluffy teen shows, the ratings just aren't quite there for Ringer. But as a die-hard Ringlet, I'm still hoping it will make a return this coming Fall so we can see Queen Sarah Michelle Gellar and her male co-stars again. 

Here's the preview for next week's finale!

Haley on "90210"

She has an album out next month and is even switching zip codes! That's right, everybody. Haley Reinhart can do it all! Amidst her busy schedule, the new singer can still squeeze in time for her other interest - acting. Last Tuesday marked her first acting gig as she guest-starred on the CW show 90210, which is a spin-off of the original back in the 90's. Even if she was playing herself, Haley brought a lot of dynamics to her scripted character and certainly made the most of her 1.5-minute scene. 

As she plans on continuing acting in addition to music, you can expect to see her in one of your favorite shows in the near future...and maybe even a movie! I can think of one show she should be in. Supernatural! In fact, I've long been wondering if she's a hard-core fan, as the girl is very classic rock, and it's a show with countless classic rock hits playing in every episode. 

Watch Haley's 90210 clip right here, right now.

Berthillon Ice Cream in Paris

When luxury calls, Berthillon answers. Founded by the great Monsieur Berthillon in 1954, the store is wrapped in classic interiors that give it a touch of royalty. But don’t worry too much about its high-end décor. The whole atmosphere is as casual and comfy as ever. Anyone who’s in the mood for sizzling desserts and relaxation is guaranteed to call Berthillion home. 

Its ice creams are purely made from natural ingredients like milk, sugar, cream and eggs, making every single item on the menu taste-worthy. One-of-a-kind specials like the Praline with lemon definitely make mouth-watering treats to savor. No matter what you're craving - caramel, dark chocolate or even fresh mango - there are plenty of flavors to indulge yourself in.

Many local Parisians have revealed the ultimate secret that Berthillon probably has the greatest ice cream and dessert selections in the entire city. Touché!
