Did you catch the AMAs this year? I don’t usually watch award shows…but this year I really wanted to catch Tracee Ellis Ross hosting as she is definitely feeling like my spirit animal these days. I enjoyed her hosting and would love to see her hosting again. Things that stood out to me tonight:
Pink and Kelly Clarkson…Yaaaaassssss…that is all. Demi Lovato performed Sorry Not Sorry, my reaction…heads to iTunes to download. Alessia Cara, great voice…duh. Shawn Mendes I watched him perform and later accept an award, he really seems like a nice kid…I’m rooting for him. Chadwick Boseman, wait he is an actor, but he's Black Panther (also James Brown, Jackie Robinson…Persons Unknown) and he is extremely attractive (hey boo!) okay sorry back to musical acts. BTS, I’ve been wanting to see what the all the commotion was about. They are very cute and have a serious fan base, this was their first American TV performance, safe to say it was a success.
My top 3 performances:
Kelly Clarkson medley, she took me back, goodness this woman can sang!
P!nk in 8 words: she performed on the side of a building. A freaking building! The JW Marriott to be exact, amazing! I cannot wait to see her in concert in a few months!
Diana Ross, who was presented with a Lifetime Achievement Award. I got teary watching her perform towards the end. She really is a trailblazer (not to mention the iconic hair fluff, that I like to use when I'm feeling fabulous!). They don’t make ‘em like this anymore. She brought her grandchildren on stage for the last song, too cute. Then brought her entire entourage (family) on stage as they presented her with the award. (Sidenote: her grandson afro was EVERYTHING) Watching her close out the show brought tons of warmth to my heart. Good music is so therapeutic, I needed that reminder.
What did you think of the show? What were some of your faves?
Late last week I realized that an item I had ordered (a REALLY cute pair of baby Ugg boots) would be delivered while I was out of town. So I used the UPS app (I signed up UPS My Choice several years ago, it alerts me anytime my address is used as a package destination and provides me with with the tracking info automatically) to see what options I would have, i.e. hold and delivery another day. To either hold and deliver a different day or to change the delivery address cost $5. I didn't want to pay that, so I decided to try the UPS Access Point option, which came up as well but at no additional charge.
The UPS Access Point provides locations where secured UPS lockers are available to hold your packages. Once the item is delivered you are notified (via email and in app) that the item is ready for pick up and it provides a barcode. The app also told me to have a government ID available. When I got to the location the lockers were on the outside of a 7-11. I walked right up, selected the button that I wanted to pick up a package (because apparently it is a UPS drop-off location as well) , the system then prompted me to put in my tracking number or scan the barcode. I scanned the barcode from my phone, the system told me which locker the item was in and then unlocked the door. I took the package and the system inquired if i was finished I pressed yes, transaction complete. By the time I got back to the office I had an email saying that the item had been picked up.
With the holiday season coming up I would definitely consider using this again, it was VERY seamless! Has anyone else had experience with this?
