  • Open Heart OTP of the Week: Dylan & Wes

    Posted on 03/04/2015 by TeenNickBlogger

    It's no mystery (*ba dum tsh*) that Dylan's love life on Open Heart has taken a backseat to her investigation. And TBH, it's been a long road for #Wylan. Remember when Wes almost got fired for letting his jealousy get the best of him? Or that time Dylan had a pseudo-crush on Dr. Hud, subsequently causing aforementioned almost-firing? Yeahhhh, this 'ship is no stranger to rough seas.

    OTP: Wes & Dylan><br />
<br />But this week, all you #Wylan hopefuls get what you most rightfully deserve. Our girl Dylan truly, officially, properly reciprocated feelings for a guy who's kind of amazing. And we're so happy she did. <br />
<br /><center><img src=
    *Screeching brake noise* But you didn't think it was going to be easy, did you?!

    Wylan's first attempt at locking lips was interrupted by a video chat call from Teddy, in which he bragged about a solo-mish break-in at the metal factory lofts. Ah, and the past rears its ugly head.

    With their puckers put on hold, Dylan and Wes rushed to loft, where Dylan told Teddy to take a hike -- literally, she called the cops on him -- and made her biggest discovery yet. Finding her father's medication was a huge breakthrough, a validation that his disappearance was more than a stupid affair, and you bet Wes was right by her side. <3<3<3

    (BTW, we totally count this as part of the date.)

    OTP: Wes & Dylan

    When they got back to Dylan's apartment, she thanked Wes for his help and sealed it with a kiss. A KISS! And this wasn't a mere "It's the least I can do" kiss -- it was, without a doubt, the moment Wes and Dylan became our One True Pairing.

    But we ask you, shippers... Is Wylan made to last? Or is their complicated past an indication of their future? The floor is yours.

  • Cristine Prosperi Talks Mikayla's Style on 'Open Heart'

    Posted on 02/23/2015 by TeenNickBlogger

    If you're like us, you've noticed how Dylan Blake's bestie Mikayla Walker kills it in the style department. Well, we love her character's wardrobe so much that we got Cristine Prosperi to give us some exclusive details on each of her looks. (Now excuse us while we go buy some striped pants...)

    EPISODE 112: "TIME OUT OF MIND"
    Mikayla's Style

    I like how Mikayla can do both girly and sporty. This look was a good mix of both! The heart sweater was adorable and another favorite of mine!

    EPISODE 111: "TRUST FUND"
    Mikayla's Style

    Mikayla went for a more preppy look with this one! A conservative dress with a cardigan is a safe choice for a Sunday brunch, or a job interview!

    Guess What: The bracelet was pulled from Imogen's closet!

    EPISODE 110: "PAYING FOR IT"
    Mikayla's Style

    This look was too cute! I love a good cropped sweater and anything pastel. This skirt made my legs look long and tanned and that's always a plus!

    EPISODE 109: "PASSWORD"
    Mikayla's Style

    Another look with country flare! Mikayla has a good sense of style in the bootie department! These jeans were high-waisted so it complimented the crop top.

    Mikayla's Style

    I felt like I was going to a disco in this look! Pairing busy tights is tricky but the black top with small embellishments worked! Another very comfy look!

    EPISODE 108: "ANCIENT HISTORY"
    Mikayla's Style

    Who doesn't love a polka-dot dress?! My favorite part about this look was the bow belt and the shoes. The cutouts in the shoes were very trendy.

    EPISODE 107: "CONNECTED"
    Mikayla's Style

    Felt like a little cowgirl in this number! This dress was so flattering and comfortable. I liked how the necklace added a pop of color.

    EPISODE 106: "LOCKDOWN"
    Mikayla's Style

    These booties! Love how you can dress down a dress with a good pair of booties.

    Guess What? One night after set, wardrobe allowed me to wear these booties out for dinner with the cast because I loved them so much!

    EPISODE 105: "IN PLAIN SIGHT"
    Mikayla's Style

    Mikayla went for a sporty look and totally nailed it! The striped pants elongated my legs and the wedge sneaker made me even taller!

    Guess What? Everyone on the crew kept saying the pants looked like the suit Robin Thicke wore in Blurred Lines!

    EPISODE 104: "PRIVATE EYES"
    Mikayla's Style

    Don't be afraid of bright colors! This look was so beachy and fun.

    Guess What? Wardrobe asked what I would do if I wore this. I said I would tie up the shirt, and we went for it on shooting day.

    EPISODE 103: "UNKNOWN SOLDIER"
    Mikayla's Style

    This blue pastel was one of my favs! The open back makes it so unique and the lace add a flirty touch. Mikayla is definitely the dressiest at the hospital!

    EPISODE 101-102: "LAST THINGS FIRST"
    Mikayla's Style

    Loved the pairing of pinks in this outfit and the neutral shoes tied it together!

    Guess What? We had to tape the necklace down for sound purposes.

  • Top 10 Fiercest Fifth Harmony Lyrics

    Posted on 02/20/2015 by TeenNickBlogger

    If there's one thing we love about Fifth Harmony (excluding the obvious and undeniable: their pipes, their moves, their hair...), it's that they sing songs about the power of sisterhood and being fiercely feminist. We thought it only fitting to celebrate their success by rounding up the top ten fiercest lyrics from their latest album, Reflection!

  • Open Heart OTP of the Week: Jared and Mikayla

    Posted on 02/18/2015 by TeenNickBlogger

    OTP: jared and Mikayla

    There's a chance you didn't see it coming, but when a Code Silver forced Open Heart Memorial into lockdown, something else turned out to be locked: Jared and Mikayla's lips! (LOL had to.)

    During the emergency, Jared jumped into protector mode and Mikayla shared her first-ever kiss with the high-strung volunteer coordinator. Chalk it up to "extreme emotional duress," but we're naming Jikayla our OTP of the Week!

    OTP: Jared and Mikayla

    Thanks to a peanut allergy situation, it didn't take long for Wes to find out about the smooch.

    OTP: Jared and Mikayla

    And at first, he was all... "You crossed enemy lines!" But then he asked:

    OTP: Jared and Mikayla


    What say you, Open Heart fans? Is Jikayla a premature 'ship? Or are we sailing off into the moonlight?

  • Five Times Taylor Swift's 'Style' Music Video Made Us Buckle Our Knees

    Posted on 02/13/2015 by TeenNickBlogger

    Swifties, REJOICE! Taylor Swift just released her brand-new video for "Style" today and it is B-E-A-UTIFUL. The video's release falls on Friday, the 13th -- which is no coincidence, since 13 is Tay's lucky number -- but the only thing truly freaky about it all is how much #RIPME is currently going on in our minds and bodies.

    We all know who reportedly inspired the third single off of 1989 (coughHarryStylescough... do we really need to say it?), but by the looks of this visually breathtaking clip, we are much more concerned with the fact that Taylor has somehow outdone herself. This might be our favorite video yet, and here are five reasons why.

    TWO PAPER AIRPLANES FLYING

    Style

    Thank you, Taylor, for this clue of all clues. The paper airplane allusion first appeared in "Out of the Woods" supposedly as a reference to a necklace that she and Harry shared. Now, she straight-up placed said necklace in her music video. *Praise hands*

    RED LIP, CLASSIC THING THAT YOU LIKE

    Style


    Since it's a central theme in the song's lyrics, it comes as no surprise that Tay's signature red lip makes multiple appearances in the video. But does anyone else think this image of her in wayfarer sunglasses hearkens back to the Red era? When she and Harry first met? Too much of stretch? Never.

    DAYDREAM LOOK IN YOUR EYES

    Style

    In case you didn't know, the leading man in this vid is English actor, Dominic Sherwood. If you look closely as he smolders into the camera, you can see that he has two different colored eyes. O_O Yep. Now we think she's just actively trying to make us lose it.

    AND WHEN WE GO CRASHING DOWN...

    Style

    In one of the video's stunning visual effects, Taylor raises her hands in front of her face, just as her the man's reflection appears. We're going to guess this creative decision was made because he is her and she is him and everything is one thing.

    ...WE COME BACK EVERY TIME

    Style

    Taylor Alison Swift. Go ahead and twirl into the abyss as the silhouette of your love interest appears on a sunset-laden beach. Just go ahead. You've already managed to make us flat-line and come back to life all at once! Truly, this video is everything we hoped it would be.

    But enough of from us! What did you think? Did you have a favorite moment from Taylor's new video? Let us know in the comments!

  • Open Heart Heart-Stopping Moment of the Week: Wes Loves Dylan

    Posted on 02/12/2015 by TeenNickBlogger

    Open Heart Executive Producer Ramona Barckert said the following about Tuesday's episode:


    And she wasn't wrong. In just four short weeks, this show has succeeded in causing SOME sort of physical distress every episode with its O_O ?!?!?! OMG moments. And for us, the heart-stopping moment of the week occurred toward the end of the episode, when Wes bared his soul to Dylan.

    In case you missed it, Wes is "pretty much in love" with Dylan. And we're "pretty much" in need of a defibrillator.
