New Layout: Uncorked!

Hey there, reader(s)!

I’ve been working on a new design layout, and I’ve finally got most of the components the way they looked in my mind! So, without further ado — I present you with the new and improved Lena’s Beat!

Feel free to look & click around, and tell me what you think!

The icons on the right will lead you to the following categories:

Viewpoints: posts about pop culture, current events, politics, school, psychology, updates on my life, travel, health tips, and other goodies.

Eats: posts about food, of course! I mostly cook from vegetarian recipes, with some meatier ones featuring ground turkey, grilled chicken, and salmon.

Movies: posts about movies I’ve seen, and my recommendations, typically in the genres of drama, comedy, thriller, gay & lesbian, indie, romantic comedy, and whatever else Netflix recommends (i.e. “Critically acclaimed cerebral dramas with a strong female lead”).

TV: posts about the plethora of shows I love (up to and including  Queer as Folk, Dexter, 24, The Sopranos, Mad Men, Glee, Parenthood, Alias, Beverly Hills, 90210, Buffy, Californication, Frasier, Roseanne, and more!)

Photos: Stay tuned for posts featuring some of the photos I’ve taken! As a full-time student and part-time employee, this growing hobby often takes a backseat right now, but when I do get to use my lovely D-SLR, it’s a happy day for me, and I look forward to sharing it with you!

If this is your first visit and you like what you see, please do subscribe and I’ll do the same for you!

Thanks, and enjoy!

Lena’s Top 10 Hollywood Women

This post is by virtue the same one as my Top 10 Hollywood Men post, except this one’s my female Freebies List! Feel free to comment with your own top 3, 5, or 10 list 🙂

 

5jennifer 1. Jennifer Garner – The quintessential full package – she’s got the looks, the charm, intelligence, dimples, kick-ass acting versatility, ability to juggle multiple roles in real life, and generally pure awesomeness. I loved her as Sydney on Alias, giggled with her in 13 Going on 30, and swooned in Valentine’s Day. I’ve also met her at a Broadway performance of Cyrano De Bergerac, and she was fantastic as Roxanne! I’ve been in love with her for about 7 years now, and the ‘womance’ will likely endure for a lot longer! She’s definitely #1 in my book.

 

0_61_070208_shannen 2. Shannen Doherty – She plays my absolute favorite character on the original 90210. I love her looks and her fiery attitude. Despite playing the ‘bitchy’ character on the show, I always loved her strength and thought she was a lot more vulnerable than she let on. I also loved her on Dancing with the Stars, and it sucks she was voted off first! But alas, still love her, and looking forward to her next endeavor.

Check out the rest of my list!
