Another season of Bachelor in Paradise! Although I think it’s safe to say this season is unlike any other season before! Honestly, for the first time, I think Chris Harrison is totally on point when saying it’s the most dramatic season ever! At least the first couple episodes will be. I knew going into watching this episode, I even tweeted about it, that we weren’t going to get answers about what happened with Corrine and Demario. But hopefully we will get some next week! Actually I guess we kind of did. We saw them flirting a lot and we saw that they were totally cool with each other the next day; although I feel like I remember someone saying Corrine was giving her rose to someone else? And Demario expressed interest in Alexis. Am I making this up? Ha! I drank a few cocktails during the show last night. And they were GOOD cocktails. I’ll get to those in a minute…
Today’s blog post is going to be twofold. I’m going to hash out what I thought about last nights episode and share pics of the super cute and fun Bachelor in Paradise themed party my friend Catherine, a few others & I had! We had black bean taquitos, chips and salsa, guacamole, and the most incredible cocktails I have ever had! OK maybe they’re ONE of the most incredible cocktails I’ve ever had! Because I like a lot of cocktails! Ha! No but really, these rose daiquiris are so delicious and actually perfect for any Bachelor in Paradise viewing party you have this season. Get the full recipe on my girl Catherine’s Blog!
Ok.. back to last night’s episode! I am loving ALL the couples on the show so far!!! Three especially.
First, Dean and Kristina! Are they not the cutest couple ever?! And anyone else want to see WAY more of their date?!?! I seriously think that they are a perfect match! I don’t know what it is about them, but I feel like if they end up together after this, they could be the type of couple that makes it for the long-haul! What do you guys think?
I also think Jasmine and Matt are such a great match! I think her bold personality and his shy-guy personality actually balance each other out quite nicely. I honestly couldn’t be more excited about them as a couple! And how cool is it that Matt was so down to be a part of the drag queen show. And not in an obnoxious way. In an “I’m up for anything” kind of way. He’s just a class act!!!! And Jasmine! Love her! I’m just all around pumped for them!
And there’s Derek and Taylor. Another super cute couple! Taylor has a harsh personality that is hard for some people to understand, but I think Derek brings out a vulnerable side of her that we don’t really get to see because she puts up a hard exterior. I love that her walls are already coming down with him.
And what do we think about Wells being a bartender!? I wonder why he is taking himself out of the dating game? Is he in a relationship? Or are they just doing that so they have an actual bartender. And then one of the cast members will break the rules later in the season and ask him out. We shall see. For now, he should totally be whipping up these rose daiquiris for the cast 😉
And we have to talk fashion! Both mine and Catherine’s looks and the girls on Bachelor in Paradise. First, Catherine and I totally went crazy at Free People with our clothes for this! Ha! They just have great pieces that have a “Paradise” feel, but will transition easily into fall! Because let’s face it, we aren’t buying a ton of summer clothes right now. Most of us (me for sure) are focused on fall and what can transition from summer. Details on our looks are below…
Raven’s blue bikini top when she arrived in Paradise and the orange bikini top she wore on her date with Robby are both by Seafolly. I know because I asked her! I couldn’t find the exact blue one, but this one is super similar and by the same brand. Also her For Love & Lemons rose ceremony dress is from her very own shop! Check out all her shop items HERE! Btw, isn’t Raven great?! I just adore everything about her! I really hope she finds love!
These are all the outfit details I have for now! Maybe I’ll get more later today but I wrote this early this morning!
