Diary: My Life In Pictures

It's been a while since I've shared Instagram pictures, so I've compiled some of my favorites. It's not much, but they're a reminder to enjoy life in every single way, no matter how big or small that day may be.



Movie: In Her Shoes

(imdb)

I remember watching In Her Shoes in theaters when I was younger and I remembered how I didn't really get it. I may have been a little too young to understand what was going on, but as I saw it a while later, a little older and wiser, I got it. I understood the family dynamic, especially when it came down to the sister bond between Toni Collette and Cameron Diaz. Not only does the movie touch on the dysfunctional broken family, but it also touches the subject of self-worth, understanding yourself, and most importantly accepting love. Yes, it's a chic-flick tonight, so grab your girlfriends, sister, or if it's just you tonight, and indulge yourself with tonight's movie pick.

Movie: When Harry Met Sally

I have a confession to make: I have never seen When Harry Met Sally until the other night. I know, big film junkie like me had never seen one of the most romantic movies of all times! You'd be surprised as to what I haven't seen, so I am starting with the classics.

Inspiration: Hair Bows

I am loving this hair inspiration from The Beauty Department. I've had bangs, fringe, whatever you want to call it, for about six years now. Phew. I love my bangs, but sometimes it does not want to cooperate with me, but I blame Miami weather for that. For example, it's raining down here so I'm wearing my beanie to calm down my hair. Anyway, one thing lead to another and I found myself browsing through my favorite beauty website, looking for hair How-To's and saw this post. I sure am feeling inspired now!

Movie: Drive

It's been a while, I know, but tonight looks like a perfect movie night for me. Sometimes I know what I'm in the mood for, other times I'm not. Tonight however, I am in the mood for Drive. Why? I guess because I was listening to Nightcall by Kavinsky, which is the opening song to the movie, and it always makes me think of Ryan Gosling pensively driving through the LA streets. Also, Ryan Gosling. Always Ryan Gosling.

Music: Lana Del Rey

If you've been reading my blog for a while, then you know that Lana Del Rey is one of my favorite artists. Girl is bad ass and I just simply love her musical style. I was kind of bummed I missed her concert last Sunday, but her new single makes up for it. Here is West Coast, enjoy!

Monday

Hey Guys, I know I haven't spoken about movies and TV for a while, sorry. I've been binge watching Arrow, which I finished season one on Netflix. It's pretty good, though I cringe once in a while on the editing. Besides that, I am all caught up on Once Upon A Time, New Girl, The Mindy Project, Parks and Recreation, Chicago Fire & PD. Yeah, that's all that I've got going right now in terms of TV, and most of the shows are nearing their season finale.

I seriously cannot wait for Orange is the New Black, and Pretty Little Liars to return. I need my female empowerment fix.



Movie wise, meh. I'm looking forward to seeing Maleficent and Godzilla out soon. Oh and let's not forget John Green's The Fault In Our Stars which is sure to be a real tearjerker. I know because I cried reading the book.

I'm currently reading Eleanor & Park by Rainbow  Rowell. The fanart is amazing, and I'm glad it's being made into a movie. Rainbow also wrote Fangirl, which I enjoyed very much, because let's be honest here, we have all found ourselves consumed in a good fanfic every now and then.


I cannot express how fond I have been of this coming of age book, a book that hits home when it comes to feeling lonely, or falling in love for the first time. The only book I remember feeling like this is The Perks of Being a Wallflower. I hate when books are labeled under "young adult" because every book, no matter what genre it is, should be read. Books like Eleanor & Park is what makes me love reading even more. They're nostalgic and a breath of fresh air.

Oh and Gone Girl was psycho good. I cannot wait to see the movie starring Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike out this October.

That's all I've got folks. What are you watching? Reading?

Friday: Haim Concert Experience

Hey guys, sorry I haven't been around much. Life is getting kind of busy and hectic and I always end up tired to blog. Anyway, I went to the Haim concert on Tuesday with my sister... and it was magical. It was my first (first!) serious concert, and I'm glad that they were my first real concert.

We arrive at the venue early and decided to stand in the general admission area. We stood for about two hours, but then the opening act, Shy Girls, came out. They were pretty awesome. The main singer reminded me of Stefan Salvatore from The Vampire Diaries, no joke.

 
The picture is a little hazy, but I had to make due with where I was standing.

After four songs, the sisters came out. They started with Falling and the rest was pure magical. They can really rock, guitars... drums... the girls gave an A+ performance. I am really forward to seeing the, again in the future.

What's you're Haim experience? Or any concert experience?
