The Girl With the Blue Bow

Hello, Join The Gossip girls, and boys! That girl up there, in that picture, is me. Who am I? Bond, James Bond... No? Well, my actual name is Christianna and I blog over at "The Girl With The Blue Bow"! I write about a ton of different things like music, movies, books, random fashion and my adventures as a traveler. I get myself into ridiculous situations on a daily basis, which is why I do a link up on Wednesdays called "What The Hell Wednesday". Feel free to stop on by and say hello, or maybe even link up if you feel so inclined!

So, what is in store for you all in today's post? I took inspiration from Leeann's Man Candy Monday, and am bringing you his little sister: Girl Crush Wednesday! Sure those guys are super hunky and great to look at, but there are those girls out there, who inspire us. The funny ones, the goofy ones, the ones with great fashion sense, the smart ones, basically the ones we look up to for one reason or another. The ones who do it their way and encourage us to be awesome, because they are in fact awesome!

Who'd I pick? I went with a girl who's role on TV always has me gut laughing. I mean all the girls on "Parks and Rec" are great, sometimes strange role models. But, I'm talking about my homegirl, April Ludgate, played by the hilarious Aubrey Plaza!


Sure, Aubrey's not everyone's cup of tea, and I'm not quite sure why that is? I find her dull sense of humor refreshing. Seriously, some of the things she says as April on that show! Her performance is always a little understated, but no less funny then the rest of the talented cast. Plus she was also in "Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World"... pure awesome! Aubrey's been performing improv and sketch comedy at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theater since 2004, and has a load of other improv and sketch comedy under her belt!



Aubrey's just plain quirky and rocks it! Plus she's got a great sense of style. She's reminds me of a quirky (how many times can I use that word), modern version of Audrey Hepburn. Do you see it? Just look! Plus her beauty is unusual, in the best sense of the word! I respect a girl who rocks her unique looks!



See, she's even talking about one of her own girl crushes in this quote about the first woman stand up comedian that she ever saw preform live! It's cool to know that inspiration can strike at any moment, leading you on the path of who you become! Don't you love those pockets on that dress? I feel like Aubrey would have something funny to say about them!



You just know that this girl was destined to become a comedian when you learn that she was named after the song "Aubrey" by the band Bread. Yes, she was named after a soft rock song from the 70's, or possibly 80's? I'm not really down with my knowledge of Bread. I just know that my Aunt loved them...

So take a clue from Aubrey and rock your funny, own your quirkiness and make the world smile!

P.S. remember "WTHW" is happening over at my blog, so stop by for some more giggles over there! BOOM!

Aubrey Plaza is one of my girl crushes too! I already loved her character on Parks&Rec then I saw an interview with her on Jimmy Fallon and I just love that she's quirky and she doesn't care!
