Music Monday: An Artist, A Song, and A Playlist

Hello There everyone and Happy Monday!!

Alright so as the title says, I wanted to share 3 things with you today, an artist, a song, and a playlist.

First I'd like to talk to you about Stromae

Paul Van Haver is a Belgian electronic musician who performs his music in French. His music is often upbeat and fun, however his lyrics are always deep and relatable to life. While watching Stromae's music videos its extremely easy to understand what the song is about. Whether you speak french or not.

Papaoutai is about a relationship between a boy and his distant father

Tous les Memes is about a relationship between a man and woman.

Stromae also has lessons on youtube where he shows his fans how he creates his music. I'm excited to say that I'll be seeing Stromae live in concert next month and hopefully I'll be able to video tape the show.

 

Now it's time to talk to you about the song I've been currently obsessed with its called "5 seconds" by Twin Shadow. It's has an 80s feel to it and I absolutely love it, not to mention the video is rather cool too.

Ok last but not least the playlist! For those who don't know as of this Saturday we only have one month of summer left. So I called this playlist "The Transition" because it's sweet and slow just like the transition from summer to fall. It has songs from the Neighbourhood, Beyonce, and Justin Timberlake, so I think you guys might enjoy it. Feel free to listen to this playlist while cuddling up in your room preparing for sweater weather.

Alright you guys! I know I had a lot of music to share with you this week due to our new schedule change, but I hope you guys enjoyed all of these tunes. Be sure to share some of your music interest with me on social media.

NARS Tinted Moisturizer in Martinique Initial Review

Hello everyone,


I recently bought the tinted moisturizer by NARS and I thought I should give you my initial thoughts on the product. First I just want to say that I love all NARS packaging, I find it very practical but still beautiful. When you first open the bottle, and apply some of the product to your hands you quickly realize how soft and silky the product is, it's also extremely easy to blend and I think it has light but build-able coverage. The product is also very lightweight and leaves you with a beautiful glow. I was afraid that the moisturizer was going to leave me looking dewy/oily however it didn't. I did get slightly oily through out the day ( which is normal for me) so carrying a sheer pressed powder might be a good idea while wearing this product. This product was everything that I've been looking for and I am so happy with my purchase. If my opinion changes on this product I'll be sure to let you guys know in social media. 

Monthly Mantra: August 2014

Hello everyone,

I can't believe it's August first! I officially have one month left of freedom before it's time for back to school. Speaking of freedom, the mantra of the month is "emancipate your mind". This month's mantra was inspired by a quote from Bob Marley: "emancipate yourselves from mental slavery none but ourselves can free our mind". This is probably one of my favourite quotes because I feel as though many of us are trapped in our own minds. We are worried about what other will think of us and therefore we limit ourselves, and trap ourselves inside a box. This month I am challenging my self to think outside the box and express who I am no matter what I think the outcome may be. There are so many talented people in the world and I feel that people are afraid to show everyone their "art" or "talent" because they are afraid of what others will think. I know it's scary to work on something close to your heart and put it out in the world for everyone to judge, but if you are 100% proud of your work and you believe it is art then forget what everyone else says. If we emancipate our minds and be true to ourselves no matter what others say I believe we might supervise ourselves with the outcome.

See you on Monday with a brand new post 

Little Changes


Hello there everyone,

I’m planning on changing my blogging schedule a little bit. Since school is starting up again, I’m not going to have as much time as I did during the break. I’m still going to post monthly mantras on the first of every month, but majority of my posts will be scheduled for Mondays. Since there is 4 Mondays in a month, I think it'll be best if each monday has a different topic so that my blog is filled with some variety. This means that once a month I'll have a post about

  • Music
  • Fashion/ Lookbook
  • Beauty
  • Life, or whatever I have on my mind

The only exception is that I still plan on posting Monthly Mantras on the first of each month. I hope you're all okay with this little change and I'll see you on the first for a new monthly mantra.
