Must See Movies!

Monday, March 30, 2015

Movies are great aren't they? The best, I know! Here are some of my absolute favorites. Recents and older movies. :) (*Note: I am not the best critique because really I love all movies, but i'll let you hold me accountable for all of these. I just love them!)


Let's start off with the movie that made me fall in love with the movie theatre. Before I was never a fan of going to see a movie at the cinema, but after watching this one I now find myself saying "oh! I bet that one's great on the big screen" What I loved most about this movie is the different perspective on the story. I love that they showed Maleficent's point of view. Truly a Villains story is never told. Of course some of her actions were disagreeable but she was hurt and that for me was understandable. Let us not forget how good Angelina Jolie played the role. I've honestly fallen in love with her! She is just so amazing, a great role model, and absolutely gorgeous. 



Okay now some may not agree with me on this, but I honestly think that the Divergent series is better then The Hunger Games. It's just personal preference though. I could be heavily swayed by Four (Theo James). I mean don't try to tell me that the man isn't good looking. That's not the only reason though, I thought this movie had more then just action. Which I'm not really a big fan of. I can't really explain it; because I'm horrible at explaining, but I just really loved the movie okay! *cries*


Again! I'm not huge on action or super hero movies. To be honest, I haven't seen any of the Marvel or DC super hero movies. This movie though completely changed me. I thought the movie wouldn't be that great and that I would end up falling asleep half way through. The movie was hilarious! I laughed throughout the entire movie. I loved that it had a lot of comedy relief, especially in places you normally would not expect them to crack a joke. Let's not forget how adorable Groot and Rocket are!


If I Stay. This movie was just absolutely, incredibly, breath takingly, beautiful. Seeing Mia (Chloe Moretz) play a character with so much passion made me wish I had an instrument that I could play with so much passion. Something about watching others be completely passionate about something makes me feel so empowered. I think the main reason why I loved this movie was because of Chloe Moretz, she is such an amazing actress. I'll instantly fall in love with a character if I can feel their emotions. Otherwise I lose some interest. There was this scene in the movie (You can kind of see it in the gif set above) where she starts to walk towards a light and everything before her is so bright and pigmented. I could literally just stare at that scene forever while listening to her play the cello. *chills* So good. *cries*


My love for Ashton Kutcher only grew fonder after this movie. This movie speaks to me on so many levels that shall remain unnamed until I am ready to share them some day. Just know that this movie holds a place in my heart. It's one of those movies that kind of mean so much to me that I don't want to share it with others, but it's too good not to. Take my word for it or don't I may have just given this movie high expectations. Still love it though. 


I'm a sucker for musicals. Musicals and Abc Family. I have yet to find an abc family movie that I do not love. I will admit that I had second thoughts about this one and debated for a while whether to watch it or not. It didn't really catch my attention at first and didn't watch it out of fear of breaking the chain. I finally got around to watching it and the chain continues. It continues stronger then ever! This movie was so good! I'm a sucker for romance! This movie makes me want to be in a musical or broadway show. I'll take either. 



I can't even begin to describe how in love I am with this movie. I think this is probably the movie I have been most passionate about. I loved every second of it. It's honestly like the reincarnation of Mean Girls. It was so funny! I laughed so much throughout it! I laughed, I cried, I giggled, I fell in love. I was an emotional roller coaster within. It's just so amazing! I can watch this movie a million times. I also can't go on without mentioning how cute Wesley (Robbie Amell) is. Watch it! If you watch any of these. Please watch this one! 


I like The Hunger Game series. I just never was a huge fan of it. After seeing this movie though I had a change of mind. I loved it! I think this movie really won me over. I think something we have learned from this post is that I like more dramatic movies. Can you blame me? 


Now we get to the older movies. I never heard of this movie or at least didn't remember it until I saw it on Netflix. I think this movie is just the perfect girls night in movie! You can't go wrong with this one. 


This is another movie I took forever to watch. Mainly because I thought it would be boring and not as good as everyone made it seem. After watching it, I'll admit that I was very very wrong. It was way way better then I thought. 


This movie is very close to being my ultimate favorite movie. It's just so hard to pick a single movie because well there's so many amazing one's out there. And this is one of them! It's just perfect and a must see. I wish I would have seen this sooner or not at all. There's just some movies I wish I never saw just so that I can watch them for the first time all over again and experience the same emotions I did the first time I watched them. *sighs* 

There you have it :) Some of my most favorite movies. The list can go on but these are just a few.

What are some of your favorite movies?

Confidence - Loving Yourself ♥

Sunday, March 29, 2015

Hey Ladies & Gents,

   Source

This post will be a little more of a heart to heart, touchy feely, sappy and a little cheesy kind of talk. It's something that is very important and really needs to be talked about. We all deal with it and I think that the best thing that we can do is let each other know that we are not alone. Confidence is something that we all struggle with on a daily basis. I know you've heard it a million times by now but it is very true; yes! even the most "confident" people have insecurities. We all live in our own little world which means that we won't ever really know what is going on in other people's world. We can judge and gather our own opinions about others but that does not necessarily mean that it is true. We all judge. It's something that humans just naturally do. I know some of us don't like to admit that we do, but we do, we all have that little voice inside our head. 

Now apart from other people being our critiques, our harshest critique is ourselves. More specifically, that same voice inside our head. Call it what you will but it is indeed part of your conscious. Sometimes what that voice tells us is exactly what we feel but wouldn't necessarily tell ourselves. That voice is like a mean bully who you just can't get rid of! I once saw this show where a girl who had issues with her body (My Mad Fat Diary, please! watch it!) went to see her psychologist. He told her to imagine herself as a child. Once she did that, he told her to tell her what she tells herself. She couldn't, it was hard for her to say such mean things to an innocent little girl. So if she couldn't say that to the innocent little girl, then why would she say it to herself? "If you had a friend who spoke to you in the same way that you sometimes speak to yourself, how long would you allow that person to be your friend?"

Media plays a big role in why we struggle with some of the issues that we face. Although the biggest factor is that we love to compare ourselves. "Why does that girl have a kick ass body!? and I don't!?", "Why does she have such pretty legs!? and I don't!?", "Why is he so well built!? and I'm not!?". The list can go on. Instead of comparing ourselves we should be thanking our bodies. Our bodies are so strong. They go through so much and yet we repay them with negativity? It's time we start being more grateful and build each other up instead of beating ourselves down. If you start to think and speak positively of others, eventually you'll think and speak positively of yourself. Try doing things like complementing yourself. Look in the mirror and tell yourself how smoking hot you look today ;) That's right wink at yourself often and let yourself know that you are beautiful! Trust me, a little vain never killed nobody. Love yourself because you're the only person who is going to be there for you through thick and thin. So you might as well start being a better friend to yourself. 


"Body confidence does not come from trying to achieve the 'perfect' body,it comes from embracing the one you already have."

Bucket List : Adventure

Friday, March 27, 2015

Hey! :)

I know it's been a while since I last posted, but as promised here is the second entry of my bucket list series. This one includes all of the more adventurous adrenaline pumping journeys that I want to go ;)


Sky Diving

I want to go sky diving so bad! It's probably the closest you can get to flying, well apart from taking an airplane. I would like to try to individually sky dive but also dive with a group of friends. Imagine how much fun it would be to share the experience with others. Ideally I'd like to sky dive somewhere tropical like in the picture. Can you imagine the view from above <3.



Zip Lining 

This is probably the least scariest of the adventures I want to go on. This one is the one I've wanted to do for the longest ever since I saw how fast Tarzan got through the jungle. 
 How amazing would it be to zip line on top of the ocean!?


Bungee Jumping

Now this one is probably the one I'm most hesitant to do, but still want to do very much! I feel like this one would be such an adrenaline rush! Well okay all of them would, but just think about how scary it is to jump and trust that your life will be taken care of by a rope. Did you guys know that; now i'm not sure if this is where bungee jumping originated, but there is an ancient tribe that celebrates manhood with bungee jumping. Once a male gains enough testosterone he will launch from a tower made of logs attached to a vine. They fall straight to the ground without having the small cushion of bouncing right back up. Can you believe that's how they prove their man hood? I find it really interesting how every place has their own traditions, some that are a little scary to think about, but to them it has a lot of meaning. 



Hang Gliding

Correction. Here's another way to feel like a bird. Now, this one would be very liberating! I want to try this one over land. Imagine the views on this one. Even better imagine them at sunset or sunrise :0



Parasailing

This would be so cool to try where the water is really clear! Like in New Zealand <3. Okay that's it I'm totally doing this when I go there.



Scuba Diving

I think out of all my bucket list ideas, this is the scariest one. I really really do not like what's in the ocean. From the fishes to the corals, I hate it all. Don't get me wrong the pictures are beautiful! but a phobia is a phobia. I do though want to at least experience it once. Again at some place where the water is clear blue (okay who else just then started singing taylor swift's song?). I would like to at least to be able to see the light peaking through. OOO now I'm thinking Hawaii!!



Horseback Riding

Horseback riding. Need I say more? Horseback riding is so much fun! The last time I did it though was in middle school I think. Since then I've been hoping to be able to do it again. Alone it's so much fun to do but I want to add some spontenouity to it! Yep thats right! Ride a horse on the beach. Ultimate goal right there. How warrior princess is that not? just me? 



Skiing

So good news! For anyone out there that has never seen snow, believe me I shared your struggle for the longest time. I can safely say now that snow in fact is not a myth. It is very much real and it is out there! What better way to enjoy it then to shred (is that proper lingo?) the mountains. 




Mountain Climbing

This will probably be the most difficult to accomplish. One because I need to find a mountain first of all and two because I am very out of shape. Hopefully, by the time that I do plan to go on this adventure I'll be able to tackle a small flight of stairs without nearly passing out. Once I get to the top of the mountain I want to scream! Scream at the top of my lungs and just let every bit of stress, anxiety, and anger out. Just let it all out and take deep breathes. Nothing is more beautiful then being able to enjoy the beauty of nature. Therefore, this is my ultimate goal. 

So that's it for this post but I'll be sure to keep them coming. Well if anyone is even actually all that interested in reading them. If you are though thank you! It means a lot that you take time out of your day to waste it on me :) I hope you enjoyed reading it as much as I enjoyed making it.

What's on your bucket list?

March Playlist : Change of Mentality

Saturday, March 21, 2015

In honor of my friend Maxie starting her blog 
I want to do my first ever monthly Spotify playlist. I’ve always loved sharing my favorite music with people and I like listening to what they have been likeing. Obviously not everyone is going to like the same music as you do, but I think music has a lot to say about a person's personality. Personally I like all kinds, except for screamo music because that just scares me. Which is why I have a little trouble keeping cool at Hot Topic. 

Any ways lets jump right in shall we?

This months playlist is called “Change of Mentality”. Why? you ask. That’s a very good question. I tend to name my playlist after a certain emotion that I’ve been feeling or I usually try to come up with a good pun. For example, my new years playlist is called “Two Thousand Fif-Tune”. Eh? Clever right?. I know I am very very proud of that one ;) (Good one me!) 




I just love this song! I think the beat is so good. Its slow and then it picks up and ahhh! it just make you want to dance to it *dances* I also really like the little bits of rap in it! It makes me feel so thug life. 


 

Kygo, this song! <3 It’s pure perfection! It makes me want to go on a road trip! ( ironic: I’m on one right now :D).



Shawn Shawn Shawn!!!! :’) This song is beautiful! and amazing! and how can I even find words to describe how perfect it is!? This probably has to be my top favorite this month. It’s the perfect song to snap along to and keep on replay. I’ll be needing stitches after this song dies down. I’m tempted to make a music video to this. 




I have yet to find a song by Marina that I do not like. This song is sooo good! Everytime it comes on I can’t control myself. I have to sing and dance along to it. I think this song runs in my blood and DNA. This is my second most favorite song this month. <3



Okay I think this song is pretty self explanatory. Who doesn't like a song with their name in it? Well besides that fact, I think this song is a gem. This one also makes me want to just jump in the car and drive. I can see it all so clear. Btw the girls voice in this is amazing! I like raspy voices! This song deserves to be in a movie!



On the topic of voices, Kina’s voice is the best!! It’s sweet but so powerful! Why have I not heard of her before? 


I knew my rent was gon’ be late about a week ago when I discovered this song! Okay who doesn’t dance to this song? I sense a dance party coming on. Don’t deny it!



Do you recall not long ago I said that I sensed a dance party coming on. The party continues. Belly dance edition. I feel like an Egyptian queen with this song. After this song I’m so ready to go the club! 



Definitely the song to listen to when you’re feeling in the party mood.



Two songs on my playlist have been about the current issues in the world. Which I love because two powerful artists have really taken advantage of their large audiences to talk about the problems we face. Not only is it educational but a very good song at that. It just makes you want to sing along to it. I found out about this song when my sister and I were coming back home at night and it came on the radio. We both just looked at each other and flipped out because it sounded so good. It even prompted us to go for a cruise. 



This is it! This is the song I want to get married to! Well if I get married. It’s so magical <3 and just makes me want to recreate the music video. I think instead of having a big wedding I’ll rent out the building and just have my husband and I dance to this song. This song is playing right now and I just can’t help but sing along to it! It makes me swoon every time and my heart flutters. Corny,, I know, but it’s the truth. I can’t help it, I’m a hopeless romantic.
(psst! I've linked the music video so you can have a sneak peak of what my wedding will be like ;)



This song is a cover to the original but the girl who sings this has such a beautiful voice! Its so sweet and soft. I can just fall asleep to this and dream beautiful beautiful things :’)  

  I hope you guys enjoyed this post! I really enjoyed making it :)

What's on your playlist?

Finding My Muse

Friday, March 20, 2015


I recently decided that I would get back into sketching. I find sketching to be calming and relaxing. Although I am not the best at it; believe me I think sketchbook paper does wonders for me, I like the feeling of being able to create something. I'm not that artsy though most of the things I draw are inspirations from other people's drawings. I think everyone has a different style of drawing therefore no two things will every really look the same. I tried to look for the original picture that I used for inspiration but I couldn't find it. I wanted it to be similar to the original picture but obviously that didn't happen, so I started adding my own twist to it. I realized that when I was drawing it I was kind of making a reflection of myself. Well the self that I feel that I am or want to be. Always looking up and never letting things get to me. I just want to live life better, in a more positive way. Feeling happy and confident. Time is flying by and I don't just want to sit around and let the little things get to me. Instead I'll go after what I want and make a change for the better. I've realized that life is much more worth living for if you live for the good moments and move past the bad ones. You have to be able to see the bad in order to see the good in things. Live life day by day and enjoy its simplicity.

"Enjoy the simple pleasures in life, smile more, love more, and dream more"

P.S. Today was such a good day :) I got to spend time with my best friend even though it wasn't anything big but I just felt happy today. Happy Birthday Aylin! if your reading this.

How was your day? What's your inspiration? Make sure to let me know :)

Latest Obsession: That 70's Show

Wednesday, March 18, 2015


The reason why I haven't posted in a while is because of that one 70's show to which I quite can't remember the name of at the moment ;). It has recently taken all of my time and attention. It's just soo good! I can't believe I waited so long to finally catch up and watch all of the episodes. I saw a couple here and there when they had the re-runs on Nick at Night (i think it was). I really liked it but didn't continue to watch it. I recently found it on Netflix which is awesome!! So if you're looking for something to watch, I recommend this show. I find myself laughing hysterically at this (note: it could just be that I have a poor sense of humor) and I usually don't laugh easy. The good thing though is that I'm only on the 3rd season; I am so not ready for this show to end. BTW another show that has made me laugh hysterically is The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt which is a Netflix original. Doesn't Netflix just make the best shows ever!? For example, Orange Is The New Black which is seriously such a good show!! I recommend that you watch it! (Warning: have an open mind when watching this show). Any ways back to That 70's show. Did anyone know that Fez's name actually stood for Foreign Exchange Student but with a z. Don't worry I only know that because I googled it, don't think I'm some sort of genius that spots all these little details. I may have also cracked where he is from but i'll leave it a secret in case someone doesn't want to know (*cough* Google *cough* it *cough*). I was just really curious and decided to look up random facts. Like did you also know that Mila Kunis was only 14 when she auditioned for the role. She lied to the producers and said that "i'll be 18 on my birthday". Tricky little thing wasn't lying though she just didn't specify when her birthday was ;). Does anyone else find it extremely cute that Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher are still together in real life! I just love their relationship!! Ashton Kutcher was Mila Kunis first kiss as well! and could very well be her forever <3 Okay is anyone else's heart melting at the thought of it? One last thing, the show wasn't actually going to be called That 70's show. They had originally planned some other names for it but decided that people might just say "oh have you seen that 70's show" and decided to call it that. 

P.s. Sorry about all the exclamation points I just really do love this show and get so excited talking about it! :D 

Does anybody else share the same obsession as me? :D What are some of your favorite shows/movies to watch on Netflix or in general? What's one of your latest Obsessions? Make sure to let me know :)

Bucket List : RoadTrip

Friday, March 13, 2015

I want to start a little series called Bucket List; original, I know - I know believe me I put a lot of thought into it ;). Basically I will be posting about what I've always dreamed of doing and hope to do sometime in the future. So let's start off with my ultimate goal.


Did someone say Road Trip?! I've always loved road trips. Normally I hate waking up early but if you wake me up early to go on a road trip then I'm the first one up. Okay, so maybe not the first one, but I just want to make a point. I've always loved the feeling of going somewhere and being able to just enjoy what's outside the window. One goal that I have always dreamed of achieving is to go on a cross country road trip! I know it sounds impossible, and maybe at the time it is but I know that with time it will be possible. 

I so badly want to start at one end and end up on the other side of the U.S. At the moment I'm thinking New York, because why not just dream big? The point of this goal is to explore and become a more diverse individual. I believe that diversity is empowerment because it allows your mind to be free. We tend to just constantly follow the same routines everyday that our life just becomes a habit. I want to be able to live! And not that what I'm doing now isn't living, but it's not what I want to be doing. We live in a world constantly living a life we think we should be living, but not actually living what we want to live. We tend to drift away from what's difficult and just give up on it, we don't prepare ourselves for the fight because we want to easy way out of everything. That is why when I go on this trip I want to rough it. 


 Just look at how cool this looks though! I want to have something like this. It's kind of like backpacking but safer and cozier. Okay, so I won't completely be roughing it, but what I want to do is have a new experience. I want to be able to soak up as much culture as I can. Most importantly, I want to become a story teller. I want to be that wise old lady who has experienced so much. The one who has done more in her life then the average teen. Experiences help us grow and as I grow I want to experience. I want to see what is out there and meet new people along the way. I'm taking this adventure to find myself. Sometimes you just need to separate yourself from what you are used to and give yourself some room to breathe.

I can keep going on about this adventure. It's something I've always dreamed of doing and am planning to do. I will not give up until it happens. Whether it be that I go with friends, someone special, family, or myself. I will do it! 

What's one of your bucket list ideas?

Fighting with your BFF?

Tuesday, March 10, 2015



Recently, I've been feeling very alone. Like no one is there for me. I feel like I'm usually the one to put so much effort into a relationship that I kind of just give up. I know that this is from my perspective, because the other person might or might not feel the same way. Therefore, never leave anything unanswered. Don't be afraid to ask your friends to have a sit down and just get everything off your chest. Trust me, the best way to resolve your problems is to just get it all out there. Sure some feelings might be hurt but you can't just keep everything bottled up inside. Because then the only person that is going to be hurting is you. A lot of the problems or obstacles that we face are internal. Either because we don't know how to deal with them or we put too much pressure and expectations into everything. Truth is you just have to take what you have and be happy with it. I'll tell you one thing I've learned over the years. Most likely nothing will last unless you stop trying to make it a certain way and just enjoy what you have. Now I'm not saying that you shouldn't shoot for better because well thats a whole other story. Friendship, though, is something that is valuable and you shouldn't just give up on it without trying to resolve things. Try talking to your friend about what's wrong and what you can do to fix it. In hopes that you two or three can find a way to get past it and just have fun again. Life is too short, don't waste it hoping that things will just fall into place. Go out and make your life worth while. Enjoy the people you have in your life for as long as you can. Once you know that you tried your hardest but nothing ever changes, then thats when you have to put your feet on the ground and move on. Truly, your always going to be there for yourself no matter what so start making yourself happy. If you can have others to live your life and enjoy it with then don't fight it. Go out, have fun, try something new for the first time. Friendship is about finding someone you can connect with on a personal level. The person whom you can say anything to. That one person you can trust with your deepest darkest secret! Yes, I'm talking about that time you had your first kiss or your most embarrassing moment. Find that person who is your soulmate and I can promise you life will be a lot more fun. So trust me! your life is what you make of it. 

P.s. Smile :) because that's what life is all about. 

Hey guys, sorry I just had to do a little rant and get some emotions off of my chest. I'm honestly feeling a lot better now. Although, it might have to do with the frappuccino I just had because honestly those things make me really fidgety so I never really know what I'm feeling haha. I hope this might have helped someone out there. If anyone is even reading this. Please, someone read this? 

Okay okay I swear I'm going now. Again, I hope you all have an absolutely wonderful day and never forget....

February Favorites

Monday, March 9, 2015

Hey again! :) 
So today I've decided to talk about my favorites for the month of February. They're just simple little things that I've been loving and want to share with you.

Let's get right into it shall we?



We'll start off with food because who doesn't love food!? Have you tried these? If not you should!! They are so good! <3 My mouth is literally watering and I'm eating these as I type this :D I'm not good at describing things but these taste like cheesy buttery deliciousness. Seriously try them! and let me know what you think.


I'm a huge advocate of lip balms and fighting off dry lips. These two Lippies are my favorites <3 The EOS lip balm is great for moisturizing. I always tend to gravitate towards anything mint scented. I love the little tingly sensation it gives you when you apply it to your lips. The Baby Lips is in Cherry Me. I love this product because it not only moisturizes my lips, but it also tints them! If i can find a lip balm that is also a lip tint - I am all over it!


So as you might know, washing your hair everyday isn't good because it can strip your hair of its natural oils. Therefore, you should try to avoid showering everyday (well atleast your hair, you can wash your body all you want ;) This here is my go to product when skipping showers. I try to only wash my hair every other day; but it is highly recommended to wash it every third day. Keep in mind it is a work in progress because your hair might get very oily if it is used to being washed every day. If that happens try using this dry shampoo. I'll be honest this is the only and first one I've tried but it's done wonders for me. It helps dry your hair at the roots if it is very oily and it also adds volume to your hair. 


Again! I'm literally an advocate for staying moisturized. I recently bought this lotion and I can safely say that I have fallen in love <3. It also smells really good! just saying.


As well as being keen on moisture, I am also huge on feeling like I smell good. My mom literally has to tell me to apply the perfume properly. I can't help it (I'm guilty of doing the spray, spray, shimmy application process). MoonLight Path by Bath and Body Works has been one of my favorites lately. I like that it smells clean and refreshing. I also really like that these mists lasts a really long time.


One thing that I've struggled with is black heads. Eww! They literally just sit on my nose, unwanted! Literally I didn't ask for you. I've come to terms and realized that hey blackheads are normal. Thankfully there are also several tricks that you can use to get rid of them. There are some really good homemade formulas that you can look up if your looking to save money. But if you want something quick and simple I suggest these Biore Strips. They've done wonders for me. After one application I can say that maybe 60% (TMI?) of my blackheads came off. I'll admit they looked pretty gross on that strip.



Okay, so one thing that I hate about where I live is the scorching heat! It's horrible, but It brings the most beautiful sunsets. Golden Hour is my absolute favorite! Not only is it breath taking, but it's also the best selfie lighting, in my opinion. You can also catch gorgeous video clips during this time. Ugh! I can't stress enough how much this time of day is my favorite :')


During the month of February I was given the opportunity to go to a leadership conference in New Mexico. I had the best time there! I honestly didn't even want to come back home. That is so weird for me to say because usually I want to come home after like the first day. I was only there for about 3-4 days but it was the best time of my life. I also got to experience snow for the first time in my life. Yes, snow is real! It is not a myth. I repeat it is not a myth. If you haven't experienced it yet I hope you do! You'll love it!
                                    


So... I'm not really a big fan of reading. But these two books have really shifted my opinion. "Girl Online" by Zoe Sugg is probably my top favorite this month. It's also inspired me to finally go through with starting my own blog. The book "Thirteen Reasons Why" by Jay Asher is such a great book as well. It kind of reminds me of Pretty Little Liars, so if you really like that show or are in to mysteries I recommend you check out this book. *note: I have not finished reading either of these books...oops?


One  thing I've always loved are quotes. I think quotes are very inspirational, and you can literally find one for everything! My favorite thing about quotes is that they can be interpreted differently by every individual. This one has been one of my favorites lately. I think it's so true. We live our life just hoping that one day we'll do something amazing! But what's holding us back is constantly living in the state of "I hope this happens", but why not just go for it? Live your life day by day and just enjoy what you have. Everything will fall in to place at it's own time. 



I recently went to the local flea market; don't worry there are no actual fleas involved ( I, hope). It's basically like a giant yard sale. There was a stand where this woman sold a lot of the stuff that she collected over the years; a lot of which was jewlery. I found these little treasures. I thought the necklace was so cute yet simple and dainty! I love anything that's crystal ;) and see through. I also fell in love with the ring above. It's just so pretty and I feel so fancy when I wear it. Do you need any further explanation? 


I guess I've been very tired and stressed out lately that i've been taking a lot of naps. The reason this is so weird for me is because once I wake up I usually can't fall back asleep. So recently these little guys have been keeping me company. They do such a good job at supporting me :') Thanks buddies!


We're all guilty of it! Don't lie, we are all constantly on our phones. Sooner or later we are bound to run out of battery. Well I'll tell you what. They finally invented portable chargers... okay well they've been out for a while now but I recently just got my hands on one. Remember the trip I told you about? well this thing saved my life!


I always wanted to have my own leather journal. I finally bought one! and it's become my most prized possession. The reason I wanted to start journaling was so that I can have something to look back on. I want to be able to relive what I thought and how I felt during certain situations.


Finally I want to end with something I hope to do more of in March. In October I bought myself a sketch book. I instantly fell in love with sketching. Note that I am not the best artist, but I do love to sketch! Regardless to say I've lost my inspiration recently and I hope to be able to get back on it. In hopes that I'll be able to get good enough and maybe share some of my drawings with you guys :)

Congrats! you've made it to the end! :D Thank you for wasting your valuable time on me! <3 It really means a lot if any of you took the time to read about what I've been loving. I hope you guys have an amazing day! and remember to never give up. Also, let me know what you loved in February!

"And though she be but little, She is fierce" - William Shakespeare.
(a.k.a literally my most favorite quote ever!)
