Music Monday: Move by Little Mix

It's so catchy, I was tapping my foot from the beginning of the song to the end.

So it's gonna be a really quick music monday....

So... uh.... here are some lyrics I liked:

But there's just one problem
I'm a bit old school
When it comes to lovin'
I ain't chasing you

That is me basically. I'm so old school, there's no way I would ask a guy out. If I like a guy ( lol Riv) I am not going to go up to him and ask him out or anything. I just sit in the corner and wait for him to come to me... which never happens.... that might explain why I'm a single pringle 

5 out of 5 stars

Well, that's it because I still have so much work to do....

Music Monday: Breathe

Hey guys, got one of my favorite songs that I've recently been listening to a lot this weekend for y'all today! This song is a bit more on the old side, I think if came out in 2001. Anyway, let's get into it!

Cause I don't want to waste another moment
In saying things we never meant to say

Other than the lyrics, I really liked the way the music sounded for this particular verse, it just really stood out to me. The lyrics themselves hold a really good meaning. Sometimes we waste a lot of time saying things that weren't intentional but ended up hurting the person we cared about. So it's a good reminder to not waste the precious time we have on this planet by hurting others!

So you end up watching chances fade 
And wondering what is real

Same beat as the lyrics above. While Michelle is talking more about reconciling with someone you love, I think it also takes it to another level because if you've got a lot of options, sometimes you don't know which one to choose and end up just watching them fade away, which can lead to uncertainty of what was actually real.

And I, Take it just a little bit
I, hold my breath and count to ten

At times of frustration, the best things to do is breathe. Stop yourself before a test, a meeting, an important event, give yourselves a bit of time, breathe and count to ten!

If I just breathe in
Fill in the space between
I know everything is alright


Don't rush around life, every second is precious and you'll never get it back again. Sometimes it's good to just stop and breathe~~

Love y'all!

Son by Lois Lowry
ISBN: 0547887205
Pages: 400
They called her Water Claire. When she washed up on their shore, no one knew that she came from a society where emotions and colors didn’t exist. That she had become a Vessel at age thirteen. That she had carried a Product at age fourteen. That it had been stolen from her body. Claire had a son. But what became of him she never knew. What was his name? Was he even alive?  She was supposed to forget him, but that was impossible. Now Claire will stop at nothing to find her child, even if it means making an unimaginable sacrifice.
Son thrusts readers once again into the chilling world of the Newbery Medal winning book, The Giver, as well as Gathering Blue and Messenger where a new hero emerges. In this thrilling series finale, the startling and long-awaited conclusion to Lois Lowry’s epic tale culminates in a final clash between good and evil.

Most standard middle-school curriculums now include the book, The Giver by Lois Lowry, in their units as a study of utopian/ dystopian lives.  As with any mandated reading book, some people liked it, some people just trudged through it, and some just hated it.  Well I thought the Giver was a great book IF THEY TOLD US WHAT HAPPENS TO JONAS AT THE END.  Cliffhangers are not my best friend when it comes to books and this book completely left you hanging.  So although I liked how the author created such a realistic utopian world , I ended up not liking it.  But one day while I'm looking through the new books section at the library, I see, Son, the conclusion to Lois Lowry's trilogy.  AND I FREAKED OUT! :)  and I had quite a good reason to. 

It's one of those good vs. bad stories, where the good wins :).  I wish that happened in real life too...As with all of Lois Lowry's books, it is mysterious though...So if you absolutely hate surprises with a passion, don't read it.  But even if you don't absolutely love twists in stories, please please PLEASE read this , for me at least.

Son completely ties together everything from the three previous books.  Although I hadn't read Gathering Blue and Messenger, you don't need to understand the message of this book.  It is confusing, but as are all her books.  It answers all the questions you were asking at the end of The Giver: Where did they go? Did they even make it through their journey?  Who was the boy?  You have to read the book all the way through.  YOU JUST HAVE TOOO...Sorry for screaming at you.. but you have to.  It is the perfect display of a mother's love for her son, and her son's love for his mother.  The sacrifices that our mothers make for us every day.  It's soo cute :)  My favorite part is when the good defeats the evil...yay!  And then the bad guy is destroyed and you never hear of him again...Yep I'm one of those girls that think the good people should always deserve to win.

Quoting Thursday: Chill of Fear

Quote of the Week:
My heart says follow through;;
Some things have to happen just the way they happen.
~Noah Bishop

Hey guys, giving you a little sneak peak into a maybe book review. I haven't decided yet because I'm currently reading 4 suspense/mystery/murder novels and I'm probably only going to write a review on my favorite one out of the four. But either way, this quote really stood out to me. Sometimes we get so caught up in trying to control our lives even if it's out of our reach. In times like those, we just have to learn to let go and stop being so clingy/control-freaky about everything and let what's supposed to happen just happen.

That's my little quote of the week, yeah I changed it cause I noticed I only posted QUOTE posts on Thursday, not every single day. 

Another "Fortune-y" picture because I think it's pretty...

Top Tuesday: Fall/Winter Must Haves

Hey guys, so I'm gonna be doing my Top Tuesday post of the week based off of Fashion!! And this is a list of some of my Fall/Winter must haves. Just a quick warning, I am a comfort over chic person so don't expect a lot of fashionable looking items here. Of course, to make myself look and feel a bit more sophisticated, I'm going to post Korean fashion pictures because I have a weird fascination with that style...hence my profile picture? 

So let's get started!!

Girl (or guy) you can't go cold months without at least one scarf. They're super comfortable, come in a bajillion different colors and styles, and can really dress up or down an outfit which is really helpful at times.


FashionPinterest / Home 
So I chose pictures with outfits that I might wear during the winter time, the second one not as likely cause it gets really cold in New Jersey, but the others are definite. And a little scarf styling tip picture! 

As you cans see in the pictures above. They are both in my point of view a more Fall than Winter fashion piece just because again, it's cold here. Blazers are really comfortable and make your entire outfit seem more sophisticated than you really set out for it to be. I throw on blazers a lot over a t-shirts and jeans and it just makes everything seem more put together, plus depending where you get them, they're not that expensive. Leather jackets on the other hand are waaaaay more price-y. Even faux leather jackets are way up there. I have a bold blue one that I got from The Limited while is was like triple/quadruple less the original price, there are cheaper ones but you have to look for them. Also, mine is really warm and comfortable so I can wear my favorite animated t-shirts in like October or something!


Okay, just a heads up, doing a lot of layering clothing types. I just felt like cardigans needed their own category. As do other types of jackets...don't worry, I only have one more jacket related after this. Anyway, I was never a big cardigan person mainly because I could never find one that I liked. I owned a couple "sleeve-less" cardigans and one heavy yarn looking one, but I never really got into the thing flow-y ones. At least, until I went back to Taiwan and discovered that they were super cheap and could be worn in Taiwanese weather without death occurring which is something special.  Granted, the material is super thin and not that great in "blocking" the cold, but they're still great to throw over any outfit and do help a ton if classrooms get a bit too cold. 

Warm fashion winter styleˇˇGirlBelieve: Cozy - Comfy - Knitty - Cardigan - Sweater - Scarf

To me, there is a difference between a sweatshirt which has no zipper and a hoodie which does have a zipper. So just to clarify, I'm calling the Zip Up Hoodies which kinda sounds ridiculous, but hey. These are my absolute favorite since forever, they come in so many colors and designs and are just so cute. Especially Taiwanese ones with ears on the top of the hoods....They also have different "thickness" so you can alter between spring ones and winter ones. Vests are another big thing. They don't really keep your arms warm, but they do a pretty good job keeping the middle of your body warm. Plus the ones that are furry on the inside!! 
 Aero Athletics Full-Zip Hoodie - Aéropostale®Winter Glam

No clothing list is complete without the bottoms! First on the list, my beloved jeans, they don't get any better than this. Jeans are always important, you should always have them. Blue is the most common color but colorful ones are always welcome as well! Leggings, jeggings. I started having this strange obsession with them this year I don't know why. Jeggings are just super comfortable jeans if you're having a more down day but still want to look somewhat put together, I think these are a good choice since some jeans are made of "harder" and "tougher" material. Leggings are just plain awesome. They come in tons of colors and designs, but my favorite are the plain old black ones. Partially due to the fact that I have a lot of hoodies (not the zip up ones) that are in the size L or XL, they are pretty long (cause I'm short) so the leggings are just my lazy way of putting on pants. Sweatpants and yoga pants, must haves for of course, gym, (not my favorite subject) but also important for days where you just feel done with everything. Good for relaxing in, as long as you don't fall asleep.

all these little things

Now these hoodies are the ones without zippers. Like I said before, I like big floppy ones that just sort of hang on you which makes them super comfortable and roomy. When it gets colder in the wintertime, I usually have a t-shirt underneath in case it gets too hot in the classrooms. Sweaters are a must have, they're comfortable, cute, and so amazingly comfortable. I know I repeated myself. I wanted to get my point across. They also come in big sizes!! I have a thing for big sized tops...don't mind me. 

SweaterOkul İçin Tavsiyeler (Moda)

Okay, while sneakers are my number one choice of shoes, boots are a definite for fall and winter. I'm not a big UGG fan cause I think it gets too hot in there, but I love leather-looking (faux leather?) boots, or whatever material they're made of. I prefer mine flat, but if you like heels on yours that's cool too.

So that's my I think super long Top Tuesday post...sorry if it was a bit longer than usual. I think I ranted a bit on this post, but I hope you guys liked it!

Also, all the pictures were either gotten off Google, WeHeartIt, Tumblr, or (for the zip up hoodie) Clothing Websites. I don't own any pieces (wish I did XD) and I don't own rights to the pictures. 

Again, hope you liked it, what's your favorite fall fashion piece? Let me know in the comments below!!

Here's just a little "My Style" Fall Picture...Yeah

Love y'all~~
