new artist, old obsession

I mentioned Bastille in one of my previous song posts, and ever since then I have been dying to make sure you knew how majestic they were. They’re extremely new to the music scene, as their debut album was just released March 4!! But since ‘Flaws’ in 2010, I have been obsessed. Surviving on only 4 songs by them was a rough couple years, but finally they decide to feed me some more. And all these new songs are BLOWING MY MIND. I love their sound, it’s calming yet riveting. Dan Smith’s voice is a serious drug

I’d like to say this is my favourite song by them, but basically all of them are my favourites. So I just randomly picked one via shuffle and boom. ‘Haunt’ it is.

Ps why is it all this amazing talent comes out of the UK?! Obviously, I need to hop the pond over there to find out what’s in their water.

Also, I just learned one of my favourite actresses, Miss Chloe Moretz, is a huge fan. You go girl, great taste in music!

the walking dead recap: episode 13

Yes this post is late, I know. Shame on me. But hear me out…

We all know how crazy I am about this show, its like borderline psychopathic. Literally one zombie could appear and I would think it is the most exciting episode to date. So I was BEYOND disappointed with this episode! Nothing happened. Nothing. We heard things we already knew, we watched people ask for things we knew they wanted, we saw people do things that were typical of their character, yadda yadda yadda. I rewatched this episode 3 times over the past couple days to try and come up with a good recap. AND I COULDN’T. So this is me, throwing in the towel. Sorry for the lack of recap :((( (super sad fat face aka me right now)

Only plus side, long shots of Sheriff Rick’s face graced the screen. He stared at that camera and I stared right back. Now that I think of it, maybe it actually was the best episode to date…


TEAM RICK: Kickin’ it as usual…Merle’s an ass, Michonne is warming up, Carl is dumb, Glaggie is cute, Carol is missing, Daryl rocks my socks and Rick is still the man.

TEAM WOODBURY: Milton asked to see Herschel’s leg for data.

TEAM ZOMBIE: Took a knife in the eye, courtesy of Daryl.

FAVOURITE MOMENT: When Andrea gets kicked out by both Rick and Pirate Philip. Take that Andrea!

what’s on my wrist?

Sparkles! Who doesn’t love sparkles?! If you replied ‘I don’t’ to the previous question, please remove yourself from this world. If I could, I would sparkle everything in my line of vision. My laptop, my phone, my desk, my comforter, my brothers face.

But here’s the weird thing. I am a jewelry minimalist. I know, my life is one giant contradiction, I know.

My arm parties are more like exclusive arm gatherings. Within the same crowd of individuals most all of the time. I rarely change my bracelets, aside from when I buy new ones. I think its either a) I’m lazy or b) I’m lazy. But, I do highly enjoy the wrist company that I keep. My gathering is cute, playful, and definitely suits me. Each bracelet tells its own little story!! Sometimes…sentiments matter more than sparkles. Only sometimes though.


From left to right: Feather Charm Bracelet (somewhere in Hawaii), Love Diamond/White Gold Bracelet (Jugar n Spice, Yu Fashion), California Love Bracelet (Etsy), Friendship Bracelet (somewhere in Ecuador), Rose Gold Arrow (Juicy Couture), Beaded Bracelet (somewhere in Hawaii), Embellished Friendship Bracelet (Free People)


My favourite moments, all on one little wrist :) Now, what’s on YOUR wrist?!

girl crush

How cool is Ellie Goulding?! She is by far one of my favourite human beings. From her voice and her lyrics, to her style and her hair (it always looks rad), I have the ultimate girl crush on her.

Her new album, Halcyon, is basically the reason I am alive. I am crying just thinking about it. Just kidding (but not really). But the other day, lost among the sea of music on my iPod, I rediscovered “The Writer”. Throwback to her very first album!!! This song was what got me so into Ellie Goulding in the first place, it was my favourite song for probably all of 2010. I can’t believe I forgot about it!!

Love love love all her stuff, but this song was my first love. And you never forget your first love.

Her silky voice is heavenly. HEAVENLY.

the walking dead recap: episode 12

Okay since I was up to my eyeballs in biology notes last night, I just watched this episode. And before we jump into the recap, can I just say…WHAT IN THE ACTUAL F WAS THIS EPISODE?!!! Too much. I literally paused like 230948 times to calm myself down. 

Remember, I recap as I watch the episode. Apologies in advance for unnecessary conniptions mid-episode.

*****Major spoilers ahead, be warned*****


Previously on The Walking Dead…flashback to Rick on a walkie talkie. MORGAN AND DUANE ARE COMING BACK TODAY I JUST KNOW IT.

Who is Erin. What is going on? And out of the blue this new dude comes chasing!! And Carl is all “I don’t even care” about it because he’s apparently a man now. Yea, sure. Then Michonne gets stuck in the mud, and of course, thats when the ZOMBIES ATTACK! Keep cool though, Rick has got this under control. And Carl…whoa whoa whoa. I’d like to see you drive, you probably can’t even reach the pedals. So be quiet. And then poor random dude is left behind. So much for that story line.

OH!! I JUST GOT IT! They’re back in Rick’s hometown! WHICH MEANS HELLO DUANE AND MORGAN! Come out, come out wherever you are!!! Rick is all “I was the police, b*tch” and Michonne is all “whoops, duh, your name IS Sheriff Rick”. But Michonne is now all sad and submissive! Probably because she heard Carl, that little twerp, getting all feisty about her. Rude, Carl, rude. And then some symbolic bullet exchange happens (I feel there was meaning behind that…).

Rick see a lovely graveyard and throws Carl in. Just kidding. But they also stumble upon spray paint arrows! What could they mean?! Duane?! Morgan?! (Yes I’m obsessed with their reappearance, if it doesn’t happen this episode I will go into cardiac arrest) Weird quotes are literally all over the place and its stressing me out. I can’t help but OMG WALKER ALERT! PERSON ALERT! I BET ITS MORGAN!! Cease fire!! I know who it is!! AND WTF CARL YOU LITTLE SHIT! JUST SHOOTS THE FREAKING MAN! You idiot!!! And watch, its going to be Morgan, I know it. BOOM!! IT IS!!! I CALLED IT!! And Carl the twerp just shot him!!! Thank the freaking lord he had protection!

I AM SO HAPPY ITS MORGAN. Also, I told you so. But where is Duane?! And I predict either horrible things or excellent thing from this reunion, nothing in between. Man, Morgan has gone crazay with these traps (not to mention the “Not Shitting You” sign…I hope he knows walkers can’t read). OH NOOOOO RICK FINDS THE WALKIE TALKIE! I am literally crying my eyes out. NOOO DUANE TURNED! Thats it. I’m done. I’m crying so hard I am turning into a raisin. This is too much. Michonne, shut your face, you don’t even get it. This is MORGAN. Without him, none of this story would have happened. AH RICKS HOUSE ON THE MAP! Cue more hysteria. And then…the most glorious moment of my whole existence…Rick smizes into the camera and I melt into a pool of tears. Amen.

Zombies! Now’s your chance! Eat Carl! Orrrrr let him run away from Michonne like the little idiot he is. DO YOU NOT GET THIS CARL?! We are in a zombie apocalypse! THIS IS NOT RECESS!!!! 

When Morgan wakes up and him and Rick (possibly) hug it out, I will dissolve into nothingness because I will be so emotional. AHHH HE’S UP!!! Except this is definitely NOT hugging it out….put that knife down! It’s Rick! You know him!! I cannot handle this!! WTF MORGAN STABS RICK I AM CRYING WHAT IS HAPPENING OMG OMG OMG MY BABY!!!!!!!! MY EYEBALLS ARE ACTUALLY POPPING OUT OF THEIR SOCKETS!!

Break for a walker kill. Calming myself. Dear lord.

Morgan has gone bonkers. BUT HE RECOGNIZES RICK!!! IM CRYING! IM LOSING IT! No. Not the walkie talkies. THIS IS WAY TOO MUCH STOP IT. FEEL ALL THE FEELS! My poor heart is breaking. Rick tried his best, Morgan, believe me! Sidenote, did Rick really just get stabbed, like I am still processing this. OH MY GAAAAWD HIS WIFE TURNED DUANE!!!!! BAWLING! THIS POOR MAN! Morgan and Rick should go to therapy together or something, combined they have experienced enough tragedy to last 10 lifetimes. But Rick, like the man he is, has pulled through his psychopathic mourning stage. Morgan, its your turn now! You can do it!!

Carl continues his shenanigans. And now Michonne is his babysitter. Hahaha.

Zombies unleash their terror on some poor rats…except for this one troll zombie. WHO ATTACKS CARL BUT MICHONNE SNIPES IT! See Carl?! Michonne just saved your stupid life. They turn the corner and boom! TROUBLE! I am profusely sweating. Once they make it out, Michonne lays down the law and puts the little idiot in his place. No. More. Bullshit. Preach, girl! And she’s back already, picture in hand. Awwww and this is actually a heartfelt moment with Carl looking a the picture. I am smiling. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA MICHONNE WHIPS OUT A FREAKING RAINBOW CAT!!!!!! HAHAHAHAHA!!!!! I AM LITERALLY ROFLING SO HARD!!! BEST MOMENT OF SEASONS 1, 2, AND 3 BY FAR!!!

Morgan, you are very intuitive and I see you and Rick making an excellent team. You would be the voice of reason (once you stop being so crazy) and Rick would be the man. Perfect balance. I still don’t understand how Rick is so unphased by being stabbed though…shouldn’t he be lying down? And words of wisdom from my beloved recovered psychopath!! Out of everyone, Rick would understand! But Morgan needs to ‘clear’. So just as we found him, we’ve lost him. That sucks monkey balls.

Look at all them zombies, how cute. Okay I am seriously anticipating Ricks reaction to this family picture. Hysteria will ensue. I seriously wish Morgan would join them though.

Carl now approves of Michonne, as if his opinion had any validity in the first place. But thats nice I suppose. Then Rick and Michonne bond of hallucinations of dead people. 

As the end scenes breeze by and that song starts to play, I am bawling again. Too many emotions for one episode. If the show continues like this I will need to get myself a LifeAlert button or something.

TEAM RICK: Morgan made his reappearance!!! But where is everyone else?! Daryl?! Also, Rick is stabbed but not really, since he is functioning just fine. 

TEAM WOODBURY: Thankfully not one appearance. Also I found out I’ve been spelling it wrong all this time. Shows how much I care about you, Pirate Philip.

TEAM ZOMBIE: Failed to kill Carl.

FAVOURITE MOMENT: Okay serious internal debate between Rick’s smize (drool…) and Michonnes cat (GIANT LOL).

motivational monday

Fear not friends, I’m back! And what a perfect way to restart my blogging than a Motivational Monday (especially with the ass kicking I received from last week).

Sometimes, it may seem the world is out to get you. Nothing goes right, you start going a little crazy, everybody is on your case, and before you know it…you’re crying hysterically because Starbucks is out of Cool Lime Refreshers. Thats when you know you need to step back and take a breath.

Screen Shot 2011-11-21 at 12.49.25 AM

Because life moves on, and there are other Starbucks in this world. When times get crazy, remember to keep calm and carry on CALM THE F*CK DOWN!!!
