  • Degrassi Recap: 'Sparks Will Fly' Part Two

    Posted on 04/23/2014 by TeenNickBlogger

    Well Degrassians, we've come to the end of Season 13's drama-filled first half. On the Winter Finale, the students attended Wild Wild West Night and, let's just say, all is not quiet on the Degrassi front. If you haven't seen 'Sparks Will Fly' Part Two, watch it online here and then check out our recap!

    FULL COURT STRESS

    Degrassi: Sparks Will Fly Pt. 2

    After last week's heartrending Eclare breakup, it seemed as though Clare was ready to pursue things with Drew. They ended up alone in the prop closet and, after one thing lead to another, Clare and Drew officially got together.

    Degrassi: Sparks Will Fly Pt. 2

    But right as they decided to give this "thing" a shot, Eli walked in. Turns out, after Clare broke up with him over voice mail, he traveled back to Degrassi to try to work it out. He was, unsurprisingly, pretttty upset to find Clare already moved on (with Drew, no less).

    Degrassi: Sparks Will Fly Pt. 2

    But Clare's mind was made up. Their relationship had already strayed so far from what it used to be, and Eli showing up this one time just wasn't enough. It was really over between them.

    Degrassi: Sparks Will Fly Pt. 2

    And Drew, starting to feel caught between a bigger, more intense drama, worried that he was to Clare what Zo� was to him.

    Degrassi: Sparks Will Fly Pt. 2

    ZOE'S MOMAGER
    Degrassi: Sparks Will Fly Pt. 2

    Zo� was a little rattled to find out that the character she was set to play in a new film project was, after being abducted and tormented, kills herself in the end. She decided to propose a rewrite, but when the director refused, Zo� realized she had a tough decision to make: After all she had been through with the sexual assault incident, did she want to portray a character whose fate would suggest she wasn't capable of fighting back?

    Degrassi: Sparks Will Fly Pt. 2

    Zo� decided to quit the movie, and even though she was proud of herself for making such a tough decision, Mama Rivas wasn't as pleased. In fact, Zo�'s mom came to Wild Wild West Night to demand her daughter hightail it back to set.

    Degrassi: Sparks Will Fly Pt. 2

    But Zoe, who was fed up with taking her mom's every order, stood by her decision to quit the movie. Despite her mom insisting that she knew what was best for her career, it was her choice. And ultimately, her choice alone.

    Up until this episode, Zo� had always been at the mercy of her mom's crazy career expectations, and it was interesting to see this new development in Zo�'s relationship with her mom. Zo� stood up for herself, and she got her mom to listen.

    FRIENDS IN THE END
    Degrassi: Sparks Will Fly Pt. 2

    After leading Zig to believe that he might have a chance with her, Maya finally confessed that she only wanted to be friends with him. Zig was upset that Maya didn't think he was strong enough to take the truth, and their friendship, in his eyes, was over.

    Later that night, however, Maya couldn't find Zig and worried that he had left the school to do something reckless. She confided in Miles about Zig, and he offered to help her find him.

    Degrassi: Sparks Will Fly Pt. 2

    Even if he didn't like Zig, it was important to Maya. And therefore, it was important to Miles.

    Degrassi: Sparks Will Fly Pt. 2

    When Miles found Zig, however, he was drinking in the greenhouse. Miles tried to get him to come back inside, but when Zig fired a missive at him about Maya being his "sloppy seconds" (EW, not cool), Miles turned around and tried to punch him the face. He missed, Zig punched back, and fists went flying. Miles ended up on the ground.

    Degrassi: Sparks Will Fly Pt. 2

    Later on, Chuey found Miles in the parking lot, beaten-up and boiling. Miles decided to take Chuey's fake gun, which was a part of his Wild Wild West Night costume, and use it to scare Zig. He pointed the fake gun in Zig's face just as Maya ran out, scared and furious. Even after Miles said it was fake, Maya said, "I can't be with a guy who scares me."

    But even though her relationship with Miles was over, she was able to reconcile with Zig. They shared a little ice cream, clinked their spoons, and maybe, just maybe were finally good again.

    Degrassi: Sparks Will Fly Pt. 2

    What say you, Degrassians? Are we in for a steamy summer? Will Maya and Zig be able to have a drama-free friendship? Could it turn into something more? Will Clare be able to convince Drew he's not just a rebound? Check out a look at what's coming next chapter on Degrassi, and sound off in the comments!



  • Happy Earth Day! Celebrate With HALO + Throwback Degrassi

    Posted on 04/22/2014 by Rachel1016

    Earth Day

    Happy Earth Day, everybody! The trees are budding, the flowers are blooming, the birds are chirping, and Mother Earth is waking from its winter slumber! Every year on April 22, Earth Day comes around to remind us how important it is to protect our precious planet. And now that spring is in full swing, what better way to celebrate the all of the beautiful things this world has to offer than by making a difference? Here are five easy ways to celebrate Earth Day every day!

    FIVE EASY WAYS TO CELEBRATE EARTH DAY (ALL YEAR ROUND!)

    1. Check your Earth-saving skills: Are you doing good for the environment or are you leaving a Sasquatch-sized carbon footprint? Take our two quizzes 'How Green Are You?' and 'How Will You Save the Planet?' to find out!

    2. Recycle your old electronics: Did you know that your old cell phone or digital camera can be reused to make important materials? Don't just throw them away, take your old or unused electronics to an e-waste recycling facility. E-waste can be extremely harmful to landfills, so it's important that your unused devices get discarded properly!

    3. Take shorter showers: Don't get us wrong, we like leisurely showers as much as the next person. But does it really take 20 minutes to lather, rinse and repeat? Set a timer for your next shower and see if you can beat the clock! You'll waste less water and your fingers wont get pruny!

    4. Pledge an 'Act of Green': Register with Earth Day Network's 'A Billion Acts of Green' campaign to make a contribution (large or small!) to supporting sustainability efforts. Whether its recycling your crayons or planting a garden, there are a billion ways to take action!

    5. Go for a walk and enjoy the outdoors: Take a moment to appreciate Mother Nature in all its glory. Find a park and take a stroll or have a picnic; go for a bike ride and explore your own neighborhood; literally stop to smell the roses! Whatever you do, just go outside!

    And if you want to really be inspired to make a change, check out the amazing work of two of our former HALO Award winners. Megan Kilroy is a 2009 HALO Award honoree who makes a difference by cleaning up beaches in her hometown. And Denzel Thompson transforms dilapidated lands in his community by planting urban gardens!

    There are so many ways to Help And Lead Others to environmental activism, and maybe you or someone you know already works hard to protect our planet. Nominate them to be recognized by the HALO Effect, and make their impact known!

    Finally, get in the green spirit with these awesome throwback Degrassi clips! Remember when Jake and Katie bonded over planting a garden? Or when Emma tried to get Sean to help her pick up garbage at the ravine? Check 'em out below!

    JAKE AND KATIE PLANT A GARDEN



    CLEAN THE RAVINE



    EMMA VS. THE TOMATO

  • Melinda's Beauty Blog: Personal Style for Every Occasion!

    Melinda's Beauty Blog: Personal Style


    FAN QUESTION: What's your sense of style? Do you mix things up or stay the same? Do you change your look depending solely on your mood or do you like to keep consistent with a signature style?

    My fashion sense ranges with my mood, the season, the occasion, and what city I'm in. To generalize my style, I'd say it's a mix of glamour and femininity. I love dresses, skirts, crop tops, heels, etc. But that's not to say I don't enjoy trends of other fashion genre's like rock, or boho.

    My trick to keeping up with what's "in" while staying true to my personal sense of style is to pick one thing about another genre that I like and mix it into my own. For example, leather jackets with studs seem to be a staple wardrobe item that almost everyone has. While that might not seem like something I'd typically go for, knee high leather boots are. Paired together, you already have a cool edge to the look. You can keep it as is and pair it with pants and a cool undershirt. Or, depending on the occasion, I'd "Mindy-fy" the ensemble by adding a dress under to jacket to soften the look, or opt for a crop top with a high-waisted skirt.

    Melinda's Beauty Blog: Personal Style


    Accessories and/or makeup can be a simple solution for setting the outfit tone. One ensemble can be mixed up three different ways: hoop earrings, bold red lips and cat eyeliner vs. a drop flower necklace and pink gloss with matching blush vs. stacked, studded bangles and rings with a smokey eye and nude lip. One outfit, three styles.

    In terms of everyday attire in Toronto, my style fluctuates depending upon the occasion, but I always keep it glamorous and girly. If I'm in NYC, my looks are usually high fashion with full event-ready hair & makeup, but if in LA, my look is au contraire with simple/neutral makeup looks and more casual outfits like jean skirts and a cute shirt with over-sized glasses and dainty jewels. However, no matter what city, mood or time of day, I guarantee that you'll always find me rocking some sort of heel shoe!

  • Celebrating 20 Years of 'All That!' With Our Favorite Moments!

    Posted on 04/16/2014 by Rachel1016

    All That!

    Happy 20th Anniversary, All That! On this day twenty years ago, the first episode of Nickelodeon's legendary sketch comedy show premiered. To celebrate all the breathless laughter induced by Pierre Escargot, Ishboo, Ask Ashley, Good Burger and more, we gathered some of our favorite moments from the bona-fide hilarity machine. What more is there say, except: Fresh out the box. Stop, look, and watch. Ready at, get set. It's All That!


    A definite All That! classic. Pierre Escargot was our resident raincoat-wearing, foul-mouthed, bubble bath connoisseur. Check out Pierre's first ever appearance on All That! (where Kenan may or may not laugh at his own jokes).


    Sweet on the outside, but quite a temper on the inside, All That! favorite Ashley ("Thaaat's me!") answers fan mail from her devoted followers. In this clip, she's tasked to answer questions from a few fans who she thinks are pretty much the dim-wittiest kids on the planet. (And I mean, we've gotta admit, she has a point.)


    What can we say about Lori Beth Denberg? Well, how much time do you have?! Lori's sketch 'Vital Information For Your Everyday Life' stands at the very forefront of legendary All That! sketches. Sure, the information was arguably vital at best (let's be real, you knew that putting peanut butter on your arm and telling a rabid dog to 'eat your arm to the bone' was probably a bad idea), but Lori was there. She was there to confirm your hunches and squelch your doubts.


    Okra was something of a dvine entity. She was the queen of daytime talk shows, and invited guests who were beautiful, hysterical trainwrecks. And as a bonus, Rose Perrot, Earboy and even Sinbad make a cameo in this clip.


    Where is Ishboo from? Do we really want to know?


    We just have three things to say: 1) I'm a dude, he's a dude, she's a dude, we're all dudes! 2) 'Sister, Sister' stars Tia and Tamera Mowry make a guest appearance dressed in something amazing, and 3) Can I take your order?

    What are some of your favorite memories from All That!? Share them with us in the comments!

  • Degrassi Recap: 'Sparks Will Fly' Part One

    Posted on 04/15/2014 by TeenNickBlogger

    Giddy up, Degrassians, because the Wild Wild West Night is approaching, and you know someone's bound to kick up a row! On last night's episode, Clare lost her patience for Eli, Maya found herself embroiled in a love triangle, and Zo� fought her way back to the top of the acting game. If you haven't seen "Sparks Will Fly" Part One yet, watch it online then read our recap below!

    IT'S NOT ENOUGH
    Degrassi: Sparks Will Fly Pt. 1

    It's no secret that there's something (okay, a LOT of things) going on between Clare and Drew. When Prez. Drew finally revealed his true feelings for his VP last week, Clare began to reconsider the fate of her relationship with Eli. But despite the mega-flirtation that seems nearly inevitable when the two are together, Clare was ready to patch things up with Eli. He was coming back to Degrassi for Wild Wild West Night, and they'd get to spend some much-needed QT together.

    Degrassi: Sparks Will Fly Pt. 1

    ...Until he wasn't anymore? Eli called Clare and confessed that he couldn't leave school to travel back to Degrassi for Wild Wild West Night. And at this point, Clare was at the end of her rope. She knew long distance was going to be hard, but should it be this hard?

    Degrassi: Sparks Will Fly Pt. 1

    It only took one intruding rat and a heroic Drew (who helped usher the grimy creature back the gutter from whence it came) for Clare to realize that maaaaaybe she needed to face the facts: Drew was there. Eli was not.

    And then, Drew laid it out on the line:

    Degrassi: Sparks Will Fly Pt. 1

    Degrassi: Sparks Will Fly Pt. 1

    Clare had a decision to make. Was she drifting from Eli because Drew was available? Or had too much changed in the past few months? Could it be that she was just in love with the idea of Eli from before?

    Degrassi: Sparks Will Fly Pt. 1

    Clare decided to call Eli one more time, but when he didn't pick up, it was the last straw. As she left her message, she told Eli it was over. And maybe it had been for a while.

    CALL IT A COMEBACK
    Degrassi: Sparks Will Fly Pt. 1

    After a hiatus from acting on West Drive, Zo� was ready to get back into the game. She was hard-pressed to land a role on a renowned director's new project, but a less-than-stellar audition had her hopes knocked pretty low.

    Degrassi: Sparks Will Fly Pt. 1

    To make matters worse, her performance at school wasn't ovation-worthy, either: When an F on her history test required Zo� to join the quiz team for extra credit, she not only had to agonize over a botched audition, but she faced (as Tristan suggested) social suicide on the "Nerd Squad."

    Degrassi: Sparks Will Fly Pt. 1

    Zo� desperately needed to get the part, so Tristan suggested she tap into her personal experience for inspiration. Tristan encouraged Zoe to channel the anger and hurt she felt after she was assaulted. And when she did, she became overwhelmed by the still-painful memories from that night, and whacked her co-star in the face.

    Degrassi: Sparks Will Fly Pt. 1

    Oops.

    Zo� was sure she had ruined her chances of being cast, but after explaining to the director that she could pull through, make it real, and give a good performance...

    Degrassi: Sparks Will Fly Pt. 1

    He gave her the part.

    Degrassi: Sparks Will Fly Pt. 1

    WHAT'LL I DO ABOUT YOU?
    Degrassi: Sparks Will Fly Pt. 1

    Even though Miles' jealousy drove him to frame Zig at the Sweethearts Semiformal, Maya confessed she missed her boyfriend. She worried, however, that if she took Miles back, Zig would fly off the handle, do something reckless, and cause even more drama than was already brewing between the three of them.

    So the perfect solution? Date Miles in secret.

    Degrassi: Sparks Will Fly Pt. 1

    Miles, happy to have Maya back, agreed to be a clandestine couple. But little did he know, Zig decided it was time to make proper moves on Maya.

    Degrassi: Sparks Will Fly Pt. 1

    Zig gave her his bracelet and asked her to give him a chance when the time was right. Maya, not ready to let Zig down, said, "Of course," as Miles bitterly watched around the corner. What a mess.

    Degrassi: Sparks Will Fly Pt. 1

    Degrassi: Sparks Will Fly Pt. 1

    Degrassi: Sparks Will Fly Pt. 1

    So, let's break it down: Zig is under the impression that Maya is into him, even though she's actually back with Miles. Zig basically marked Maya with his bracelet, and has since subtly been rubbing it in Miles' face. Maya said she made her choice, but is that enough for Miles?

    Degrassi: Sparks Will Fly Pt. 1

    Miles finally said that he couldn't be in a secret relationship with Maya anymore. Not only was Zig acting like he'd won, but it seemed suspicious that Maya continued to string him along. And when Maya said that she "just didn't want anyone to get hurt," Miles made it clear that someone (read: HE) already was.


    Man, you guys, so much happening and there's only one episode left in the chapter! Will Clare make a move with Drew now that she's single? Will Maya have to tell Zig the truth in order to save her relationship with Miles?

    Next week is the Winter Chapter Finale, and to celebrate, we're inviting you to a VERY special Degrassi Twitter Party. We'll be taking to @TeenNick and @Degrassinsider to live tweet the entire episode as well as give away some awesome prizes! Check out all the deets and contest rules right here! We can't wait to do this finale right!

  • Melinda's Beauty Blog: Liquid or Pencil Eyeliner?

    Posted on 04/10/2014 by Melinda Shankar

    Melinda's Beauty Blog: Lipstick or Lip Gloss


    Melinda's Beauty Blog: Lipstick or Lip Gloss


    FAN QUESTION: What type of eyeliner would you recommend? Liquid, gel or pencil? How do you apply them properly?

    I'm specific when it comes to my makeup looks, especially when a makeup artist I'm unfamiliar with creates a look for my face. My rule is: you have to be happy with how you look, at the end of the day -- it's your face!!

    Eyeliner on the top lid is a must for me, as I feel I need it to complete the look. My eyelids are rather large so just mascara and eye shadow can make me look younger.!

    On an everyday basis, a pencil liner is ideal, as it has the same effect while being subtle for a casual look. In order to keep a steady line, a good trick is to keep your pinky or a finger placed on your face. Remember to always keep the pencil sharp for a precise line.

    Gel liner is the happy medium if you want a more noticeable look. If anyone has problems with drawing a steady line or has difficulties with colour consistency (density or thickness) this can be a good option, as you can build to perfection by going over the line repeatedly without it flaking off!

    Liquid liner is my personal favourite. Once you've mastered the art of drawing a steady line, the thought of a bold black line on your eyes won't scare you away. There are many ways to apply eyeliner. As long as you achieve your desired look, there's no right or wrong way to go about it. If at first stroke you start thin at the corner of your eye and sweep the brush outward to where you want the line to be, you can always go back in and colour the rest in to perfection!

    Tip: Dare to be bold and attempt my favourite eyeliner look, a winged out cat liner.

  • Degrassi Recap: 'Everything is Everything'

    Posted on 04/09/2014 by TeenNickBlogger

    Tuesdays are all about Degrassi, and last night we brought you a fresh batch of delicious Degassi drama! This week's episode tackled (SURPRISE!) the ever-changing relationship feels. From Dallas and Alli, to Drew and Clare, to Tristan...and his teacher (?) you're gonna want to watch "Everything is Everything" online and then read our recap below!

    THE GOOD FIGHT
    Degrassi: Everything is Everything

    Last week, Dallas and Connor were pulled over on their way to the science fair under the suspicion of a stolen car. After spending the night at the police station, the officers determined that the car wasn't in fact stolen, and the boys were free to go. But Dallas was still upset at the likelihood that he and Connor were pulled over because of their race.

    When they finally reached the science fair, Dallas was approached by one of the judges. As he fixed a few items on Alli's display, the judge asked him to "step away" from the table. When Dallas explained that he was Alli's partner, the judge did not understand, and rather insisted that he come with him to sort the situation out. Dallas, suspecting similar racism, became defensive and aggressively refused.

    Degrassi: Everything is Everything

    Later, when the judge returned to evaluate their project, Dallas had another heated altercation. Dallas thought the judge was surprised at his articulate explanation of their findings, and Dallas called him out for having low expectations from a black man. The judge was taken aback, and Alli was not only confused, but furious that Dallas would jeopardize her chances of impressing the judges in such a reckless way.

    Degrassi: Everything is Everything

    As Dallas tried to figure out a way to fix his mistake, Alli's dad approached him and told him story of when he was similarly profiled at an airport. But when Dallas maintained that he wouldn't sit back and let the persecution just happen, Alli's father gave him some wise advice:

    Degrassi: Everything is Everything

    Degrassi: Everything is Everything

    Dallas apologized to the judge, explained the reasoning behind his impulsiveness, and encouraged him to give Alli another chance. The judge agreed, and before we knew it, Alli took home the gold.

    Degrassi: Everything is Everything

    But it looks like Dallas did, too. :)

    Dallas told Alli he was going to file a proper complaint with the police department about the way he and Connor were treated, proving that he could win the girl, win the fair, and win the cause.

    And that's how to fight.

    STAR PUPIL
    Degrassi: Everything is Everything

    Ever since Mr. Yates told Tristan that he was his favorite student, Tristan assumed that his relationship with, ehem, Grant was going to be a special one. However, Mr. Yates gave Tristan a hard time at the next meeting of the play-writing collective. Apparently, he deemed Tristan's writing both "boring" and "lacking depth." Ouch.

    Why was Mr. Yates being so hot and cold?

    Degrassi: Everything is Everything

    When Tristan approached him, Yates admitted that he didn't want to show Tristan any favoritism. But, I mean, anyone that knows anything about body language could tell that he was hiding something. Why was Mr. Yates being so volatile and sending Tristan signals about actually being friends?

    Well, things got even more suspicious when Mr. Yates then asked Tristan if he had ever heard of the love story of Heloise and Abelard.

    Degrassi: Everything is Everything

    Tristan quickly learned that the story tells the tragic tale of a teacher who falls in love with a student.

    ...And we quickly learn that things between Tristan and Mr. Yates are about to get complicated.

    GET A #CLEW
    Degrassi: Everything is Everything

    Clare was surprised to find that Drew's date with Eden went really well. According to Drew, not only was Eden pretty, but she was funny and they had a lot in common.

    Degrassi: Everything is Everything

    Plus, Imogen approved.

    Degrassi: Everything is Everything

    But as the idea of Drew and Eden together became more real, Clare started to regret helping Drew find a new girl. (Ya always want what you can't have, HUH, Clare?!) She also still hadn't revealed the true identity of Annabella, the girl in the fake profile that Clare created last episode. But it was time to tell Drew that she was Annabella.

    Degrassi: Everything is Everything

    Turns out Drew knew the entire time, and he confessed that the reason he chose Eden was not because "Annabella" wasn't his type, but because she had a boyfriend.

    And... KABOOOOOM! <-- That's the onomatopoeia for a #truthbomb.

    Degrassi: Everything is Everything

    So, now that the mutual feelings between Drew and Clare were on the table, it was time for Drew to let Eden down easy. He came clean about his feelings for Clare, but, even after breaking it off with Eden, he made it clear that the chances of him and Clare working were slim. Ugh, so now what? The ball's in Annabella's court?

    Oy yoy yoy, we hope you're bracing yourselves, Degrassians. Will Clare and Drew challenge the universe and get together? Will Tristan find himself in a tricky situation with Mr. Yates? Let us know your thoughts in the comments!

  • Zoey 101: Top Five Reasons Zoey and Chase Belong Together

    Posted on 04/04/2014 by Rachel1016

    Who didn't ship Zoey Brooks and Chase Matthews? Sure, it took Zoey a little longer to realize just how much she liked the lovable klutz, but everyone knew these two were meant for each other from the start. And lest you've forgotten why Zoey and Chase are two birds of a feather, here are the top five reasons why they totally, completely, obviously belong together.

    THE CHASE BEGINS


    It's Zoey's first day and Pacific Coast Academy, and who's the first person she meets? Mr. Matthews, of course! Chase runs into a pole when he sees Zoey for the first time, and all it took was one (unfortunately injury-inducing) glance for him to never look back. Yep, it was love at first crash.

    Zoey and Chase


    SHE'S NO ZOEY


    Chase's new girlfriend isn't cool with him being friends with Zoey, but turns out Chase isn't cool with not being friends with Zoey. So, he dumps his lady-friend and proves that Zoey was always his #1 girl.

    Zoey and Chase


    SHALL WE DANCE?


    When Chase sleeps through an important dance contest, he feels terrible. After practicing for 24 straight hours to enter the competition with Zoey, he realized that when you snooze, you quite literally lose. But because they're obviously soul mates, we find out that Zoey isn't mad at him—in fact, she tells him he's the best! It pays to have a heart of gold (and boom-box readily available for a dance break).

    We all know Logan was kind of a jerk sometimes, but after they duke it out, Logan actually gets Chase to admit his true feelings for Zoey. Chase says has been in love with Zoey since the day he met her, and thanks to a webcam malfunction, Zoey finally hears it from across the world.
