The Coffee and Film Tag

Hello awesome blog readers!

This week has been pretty busy but let me start this blog off by posting my video. I was tagged to do The Coffee Film Tag, it was really fun to film. Check it out.

Anyway here’s the result of my cup after I filmed the video xD

Also if you are curious these are my nails for this week 😛

I recently went to a concert and it was probably one of the best shows I’ve been to recently. Not to mention I am an avid concert attendee. I go every other month or so to watch bands and artists. But I went to watch The Vamps. The opening acts were The Tide and Before You Exit. Honestly the energy in that show was amazing, I’m still hyped about it to this day. I would totally pay and watch them all over again, really worth it 😀

I’ll post more pics about the show later on. The concert deserves a video and a blog post for itself cause it was great.

Anyway I posted more videos on my youtube channel (subscribe for weekly vids 😉

Here’s a tired selfie of myself as I edited the Coffee Film tag 😛

Hope you have a great week 🙂

Lack of Reviews?

Hey everyone, I couldn’t let July end without a blog post.

For starters new videos on my YouTube channel (I post a vid every week). If you’re not subscribed to my channel you should 😀

Secondly there have been lack of reviews in my channel and reason being:

1.) Movie plans always go to crap – I try to make plans with people cause they wanna watch a movie with me but then one of us can’t make it and then they end up watching the movie…yes thats cool….go ahead be a turd and watch the film without me.

2.) I know there are TV shows I would love to review but I haven’t been able to sit down and watch them…or I don’t have motivation to watch them (despite they are great shows). I just don’t feel like it. :/

3.) I’ve been writing like a mad woman in my time off. (yes I work part time in the summer so yea)

my coffee mug and mike wazoswki wallpaper 😉

4.) I take my writing seriously, its a craft, I’m learning, and I keep writing, despite what people tell me that its a waste….its not a waste to me.

5.) I tweeted yesterday saying how I want to surround myself with creative people that are passionate at what they do and motivate/inspire me to do what I want to do. I wanna connect with others that are working on projects and are super pumped about it.

6.) If you watch my YouTube channel expect more rambling videos about my opinions and stuff and less reviews….I wish I could watch more films, read more books, and tv shows but life has a weird way of changing things around.

yay for awkward pic of self 😀

If I am able to go to the movies or review anything then obviously I will 😀

Well there’s an update for you! I hope you guys are having a great week.

Roadtrips, Music, Donuts, and Movies

Roadtrips & music…what else should summer consist of?

Lucky for me I’ve taken a few road trips over the past couple of weekends and boy oh boy I’ve discovered so many new artists and basically my ears are happy.

My current music obsession is a band called Oh Honey. Yes, that’s their name. I am obsessed with all of their ep songs, they aren’t that known but they are so freaking good.

Maybe you’ve heard one of their songs such as “Be Okay” or “Sugar You”. If you want mellow happy music I recommend you check them out.

But of course they have other songs that are just as good. But so far those are two singles that they are playing on the radio.

Life Update:

Some of you may or may not know but I work part time for a private school and their graduation is coming up so I’ve been pretty busy helping out and stuff. Today I left my house WITHOUT my earphones X(

But at least we got donuts today 😛 Plus my hazelnut coffee….yaas 😀

If you know this or not but I’ve posted several videos on my youtube channel:

Tomorrowland Movie Review:

Scorch Trails Trailer Reaction (excitement intensifies):

Flash Season Finale (with brother):

Plus more other vids too…

Thanks for reading and have a great week!

The Heir by Kiera Cass + Nail Tutorial

Hello my royal guests 😉 ok ok hello blog readers.

I read The Heir literally in less than 24 hours and coming from a slow reader….that’s saying something. It was soo good and every time I get a book from The Selection series I end up reading them in one day, I can’t put them down 😀

The Heir is book 4 from The Selection series. If you’re wondering here are my reviews from previous books:

The Selection (book 1)

The Elite (book 2)

The One (book 3) 

Here’s my review for The Heir:

Not to mention I love the topics and themes in this book, very relevant to today.

As the girly girl that I am, I had to do my nails according to the book 😉

Step 1: Use an undercoat – THEN paint your nails a silvery color, it will serve as the base color.

  

Step 2: Get a sponge (I usually use a makeup sponge) then I swipe the silver, then a light purple, then the dark purple onto the sponge.

Step 3: I dab/sponge it on my nail. The silver at the base of my nails and the purple fading towards the tips.

  

Step 4: I waited for it to dry then I repeated again once I got the ombre effect right. (Sometimes it takes several attempts of dabbing up and down your nail until you get it.

  

Step 6: If you like that look you can just clean it off and put a top coat. BUT since this is inspired by The Heir I HAD to add sparkles. Instead of placing the sparkles all over my nails (which would cover the ombre design) I tried to put the sparkly nail polish only on the center of my nail. In a way I tried to form a triangle design, more sparkles on top and less as it reached the silver.

   

As you can tell The Heir brings out the princess side of me 😉 ❤

Thanks for reading! 🙂 Also ONCE UPON A TIME SEASON FINALE WOOP WOOP!! xD Review is going up on my YouTube channel for that.

Avengers: Age of Ultron Movie Review

*Baymax voice* “Hello”

I know what you’re thinking….Why has it taken you so long to post the Avengers review?

Simple answer my friend. My family wanted to watch the Avengers together so yesterday was the only day our schedules allowed us all to watch it.

Here’s a quick video I did…keep scrolling down cause I talk more in depth about the film.

Alright so it wasn’t until yesterday I found out Clint (Hawkeye) is married in the comics so it made sense to add that to the film. Keep in mind I haven’t read the Avengers comics YET. I’ve been reading Captain Marvel and Winter Soldier so I apologize if my comic book knowledge is rusty.

75

I thought the film score was fantastic. I loved how they kept the same powerful-superhero-type- theme going on from the first Avengers film, even though they changed composers it was still great.

  

Now the problem I see with hollywood, sometimes they make action movies that are PACKED with action, action, action, and not enough substance. Marvel could’ve gone so wrong but I guess throughout trial and error they learned to master that.

Avengers is packed with so much action BUT it is also filled with story. 😀 These characters are all different and have strengths and weaknesses but they come together, even though they have conflicts.

Overall I think the cast was great, including the newcomers, Aaron (Quicksilver) and Elizabeth (Scarlet Witch). The acting the cinematography, the music, the story, everything blended perfectly for the action packed super hero adventure we love to watch. 🙂

  

I gotta point out this Quicksilver is COMPLETELY DIFFERENT than the Quicksilver in X-men. I would compare and contrast that but for the sake of time…I’ll just say they are both different and good in their own ways 😉

Lastly I’m excited for Captain America Civil War 😀

Ok this was a long post. Anyway I’m already on summer break so expect more videos and posts 🙂

The Age of Adaline Movie Review + Life Update

Before we get to the blog post let me just say I am so sad about what is going on in the U.S. My prayers are going to this nation.

Moving right along. I saw the Age of Adaline a while back (due to endless study sessions I haven’t posted anything yet). So here is my video review:

Let me just say the actor Anthony Ingruber (who played the younger version of Harrison Ford’s character) looked a lot like a young Harrison Ford

Also the actor that played Ellis (Michiel Huisman) did a great job in this movie. I feel like a lot of people are gonna love this guy after watching the film.

So I’m subscribed to a magazine called American Cinematographer and in this month’s issue they talked about…you guessed it….The Age of Adaline and explained more about what the film equipment the crew used and behind the scenes stuff.

Great magazine I recommend it 😉

Life Update:

Finals are coming up and I’ve been studying my brains out. Therefore I’m not sure if I’ll upload a new video this week or not but either way you should subscribe to my youtube channel 😉

Since I’ve been studying a lot I’ve decided to take a break from working out…therefore I’ve succumbed to this as my snack….it’s finals time…when summer comes my way then I’ll start working out and eating healthy again :/

Well that’s all I got for today. Remember Dancing With The Stars is on tonight #TeamRallison and #TeamHoughkin 😀

Thanks for reading!

R5 Concert Movie and Thoughts About Bands

Yes…I can admit I would have NEVER thought I would like a band like R5….why? I don’t know it never occurred to me, and mostly because I never really payed attention to them.

Anyway (since you know I’m a huge fan of Dancing With The Stars), I knew Riker was in a band with his family and out of curiosity I chose to listen to their music and with the help of my friend Rachael (I met at PlaylistLive) I became a fan.

So they had a one night movie showing concert footage and the band talking about themselves in general.

So if you may or may not know, most of my friends stare at me like….’Why do you like these pop bands and stuff?’ – Also the fact that Disney channel promotes them….doesn’t help, since they are seen as a ‘kid’ or ‘tween’ band. That’s actually one of the reasons I stayed away from them. Until I realized the youngest was 19 and the oldest is 23…I’m like “Wow they’re around my age.”

Honestly, it’s normal to feel awkward to like a certain band that everyone will automatically judge you for it. I’m not saying liking R5 I will get judged massively (cause I won’t) but other bands like One Direction, 5Sos, etc…

I think it might shock people that there is an older generation out there that genuinely enjoy those bands’ music (and not just crushing on them), and it might also shock you that the older generation that listens to them…..DO NOT scream and flail their arms every time someone mentions the band.

We’re normal humans that just so happen to like these ‘main stream’ bands but sadly we are categorized as ‘fangirls’ or something.

Throughout the last three years or so I would listen to indie and super unknown artists (there’s nothing wrong with that cause I still listen to them today), but after a time in my life when I was feeling really down…I realized my slow indie music wasn’t helping. So I went back to my roots and found a playlist of fun pop songs…and you guessed it these artists were on there.

From that moment on I realized I shouldn’t judge a band or artist by their age, fan base, or who sponsors them, as long as YOU LIKE the music then that’s all that matters. 🙂

Btw I’m a collage student so I’m not that old but I’m not a young teenager anymore…just thought that clarifies things.

Some R5 songs I love 🙂
