lieblingsmusik

I can’t believe how long it’s been since I have made a new post! I feel like I completely forgot about my blog! Well, in this post I decided to talk music. I have been introduced to a lot of new music recently, so I thought why not share my favorites with you all.

Top 10 Favorite Songs:

  1. Settle Down – The 1975
  2. Why’d You Only Call Me When You’re High? – Arctic Monkeys
  3. Strong – One Direction
  4. Hannah – Ray LaMontagne
  5. Afraid – The Neighbourhood
  6. What Would You Do – Bastille
  7. She Way Out – The 1975
  8. Pick A Part That’s New – Stereophonics
  9. More Than This – One Direction
  10. Someone Else – Miley Cyrus

I can listen to all of these songs on repeat for hours. You should give them a listen and enjoy! A few albums that I purchased recently that are worth the money are The 1975 – The 1975, Midnight Memories – One Direction, AM – Arctic Monkeys, Bad Blood – Bastille, Happiness – Hurts.

Well, let’s hope it doesn’t take weeks for me to make a new blog post! Until next time. x

plaid and leather

Today was one of the coldest days we have had here in a long time! Classes were cancelled, schools and roads were closed, yet somehow I still managed to find a good enough reason to drive out to Starbucks. I spent this cold day lazily in my room watching One Direction’s This Is Us for the millionth time and I never seem to get over it.

Today I wore a simple off-white sweater (Urban Outfitters) under my new leather/plaid letter jacket (Forever 21). A for Annie of course! Along with a few of my favorite rings.

Hope you all have a safe cozy weekend! I know I will! x

poetry or whatever

I find myself writing late at night. I never really know how far down the page I will stop, but when I get a pen in my hand I could go on forever. Here’s a piece I wrote not too long ago, hope you like it. I’d love to hear what you think. x

The clouds have stopped their weeping; the wind has stopped its fight.

The trees no longer shaking; the darkness turned to light. 

The thunder seized its roaring; the leaves no longer fell. 

The storm that created madness was finally over and is well. 

The clouds began to fade from shadow black to snow white. 

That wind that wouldn’t calm is now silent and polite. 

The trees, nearly uprooted, now sway in the breeze. 

This darkness, this feeling, is now filled with relaxation and ease. 

The thunder that was shouting is nowhere to be found. 

The leaves are stuck to branches, no longer calling for the ground. 

This storm she thought was endless, tiring, and depressing, made her realize she’d held on to everything she was repressing. 

She had forgotten that during a storm, the sun never really leaves. 

It hides behind the clouds, still there, but no one sees.

 

…and here’s a selfie to end the day. Have a good weekend. x

clothes, bags, and boredom.

I know I haven’t posted anything recently, mostly because nothing truly excited has happened! So I thought I’d make a filler post of a few things I have bought, received, and worn recently. Enjoy. x

I thought the quote on this bag was SO cute. Had to buy it.

The weather had gotten quite warm in the middle of the week and I was able to wear this sassy little number. I made the shirt myself, and I must say, I absolutely love it! It is quite embarrassing when out in public and people address it, but I always just laugh it off. It went well with these light wash denim shorts from Zara. 

for the love of perfume

I am a HUGE perfume guru if you could even call it that. I am in love with so many different fragrances, I feel like each reminds me of a place, a person, or a feeling and I am so drawn to that. Here are a few of my personal favorites, if you get the chance, you should give them a smell! 

  • Burberry Brit
  • One Direction : Our Moment
  • Thierry Mugler : Alien
  • Juicy Couture : Peace, Love, Juicy
  • Victoria’s Secret : London
  • Juicy Couture : Viva La Juicy
  • Versace : Bright Crystal

There are so many others that I am in love with that are not pictured, all ranging from an elegant strong scent to a sweet sugary one. All of them smell so good, I can never decide which one to wear! Well, I hope you take some suggestions from the few perfumes I’ve shared. I hope you love them as much as I do! Until next time. x

living spaces

Today I decided to do a room post. I have received a few messages asking how I decorate and what my room looks like, so why not! It’s a mini room post really, but it will do. I have a London themed room with A LOT of little Londony/English touches. Starting with my One Direction quote on my wall from the song “Nobody Compares”. (My favorite if you couldn’t tell!) Also, a couple accessories I have lying around and how I store my accessories!

IMG_7029I added these camera shaped tacs by my light switches to make myself seem a little artsy.

My niece must have been in the spirit of matching my room with her cute London shirt she wore today! (Okay, you caught me, I dressed her. Hey, it’s still so cute!) 

Image

Well that’s all I have for today! I’ll be doing a “favorite perfumes” post tomorrow, so look forward. Have a great weekend! x

health kick

Happy Monday! I’m not up to much today, nothing but blogging and cleaning. I always find myself doing one of the two when I have nothing better to do! Today I decided I wanted to change up my diet. No more carbonated drinks or sweets (unless I have a terrible craving, woops!) and adding so much more fruit and veggies! I started off my day with a simple breakfast of a small bowl of Cheerios with frozen berries, then for a snack I enjoyed fresh blackberries with some lime juice dripped on top. In between the two, I had some water, and instead of adding ice, I froze a few raspberries and blackberries and tossed them in. SUCH a good choice.

Well, don’t let this Monday bring you down, have a good week! x

The Weeknd

This weekend was a mixture of busy and lazy (if that even makes sense). I spent Saturday on the road for almost 7 hours taking my brother back to uni. Seven. Hours. Seems like torture, but I did get some good “singing at the top of my lungs” time, and I got to witness all of downtown Houston at sunset. Nothing beats a beautiful sunset over the city you live in.

Image

Image

Before leaving, I did finally get my “Oui, Non” chain glasses strap which I have absolutely fallen in love with! Also, I spent a little time with my sweet niece, and took a few photos of her in her cute new outfit. As much as she hates being in photos, she sure does look adorable in them!

Last night I had a lovely girls night and of course it consisted of silly games and too too much laughter. Today I started off the day with Starbucks (surprise surprise) and spent the day sleeping. Yes, it was as heavenly as it sounds! Now I’m eating homemade split pea soup my mum made, and blogging the night away. A perfect end to a great weekend.

Hope your weekend was lovely as well. x
