March, in like a lion out like a lamb…ironically the exact opposite of how I would describe Taco Bell. Thanks Nacho Fries.

Station 19 March 22. ABC 9pm

The latest installation in Shondaland, Station 19 looks like the next big hit. Three blocks away from the beloved Grey Sloan Memorial hospital, setting to Grey’s Anatomy, is a fire house that is sure to bring the heat in every way possible. The ensemble cast brings the drama as we follow Andy (Jaina Lee Ortiz) through her adventures of being a young firefighter, while working under her father and mentor, Captain Pruitt Herrera (Miguel Sandoval).  For Grey’s fans, we will also see Dr. Ben Warren (Jason George) make the transition from resident surgeon to rookie firefighter. Shonda Rhymes can do no wrong, so this is surely must-see tv!

A Wrinkle In Time March 9

Oprah. Need I say more? This fantasy film looks like a hit for the whole family. The story follows Meg Murry (Storm Reid), as she discovers her father, Alex (Chris Pine), is being held captive on a distant planet far into the universe. To save her dad, Meg teams up with her little brother, new bestie and three astral travelers played by Reese Witherspoon, Mindy Kaling and Oprah Winfrey. The film looks visually stunning, wildly gripping and heartfelt! I feel the only appropriate snack to sneak into this movie is…BREAD!!!!

Ricky Gervais: Humanity March 13

Netflix offers some great comedy specials. The lack of censorship always allows for more creative freedom and bigger laughs. Ricky Gervais is a comedic icon and this special is being crowned his best. There are no official trailers from Netflix out yet, but this sales clip is enough to get a glimpse of what to expect!

En Vogue Electric Cafe March 30

Now it’s time for a breakdown, because En Vogue is back! The legendary girl group is back and showing that they have not skipped a beat. Fans have waited for over a decade for new music from the group and it is finally here! Electric Cafe promises to be everything we have grown to love from the ladies. Their first single, Rocket, has really taken off (pun intended) and has brought even more excitement around this album.

 

Trends:

Gelato Hues for Women’s Fashion

Who knew that your spring wardrobe could be so delicious? The spring fashion shows have been flooded with major designers using pastel, “ice cream colors” for the 2018 lines. The color choices may not seem too revolutionary, but there is something to be said for fashion’s tried and true.

Hawaiian Shirts for Men’s Fashion

Remember how your dad would insist that his Hawaiian button down was his nice party shirt? Well apparently he was just ahead of his time. This season, Hawaiian print shirts are just the thing for guys. To really solidify the trend, remember the oversized fit is in. If your dad was on the fluffier side, you might be able to rummage through that closet and be the trendiest while rocking his vintage classic.

Fairy Bread for Food

Move over Mermaid Frappucino’s and Unicorn Cakes, it’s time for the Fairies to shine…or sparkle in this case. That’s right, Fairy Bread is the newest trend in the American food world, but has already fluttered it’s way through Australia. The recipe is less magical than it sounds as it is mostly bread smeared with butter then covered in colorful sprinkles. Either way, I expect to see this colorful carb popping up in every hipster gastropub this spring.

 

Don’t you feel better now that you have everything you need to get through the next month? March into March like the lion you are!
