Music of the Week #11

Hey all!



One of my friends recently convinced me to listen to Newsies. (I'm still trying to figure out if that a good decision ;)) So I have been on a Newsies kick lately. For those of you who don't know, Newsies is about the newsboys strike of 1899.





I Never Planned On You
This is just the best song ever! I love the beat and the lyrics are awesome. And its a really cute love song.


Santa Fe
I couldn't believe my ears the first time I heard this. Jeremy Jordon's voice is just perfect.


Watch What Happens
Katherine Plumber is one of the five females in the whole show. I love her so much! She's so funny and awkward. It's hilarious.
(Couldn't find the audio version. This is the lyric version)


Seize the Day

This is the big strike song. IT SO AWESOME GUYS!!!!


The World Will Know
I have no words. Just listen.


Hope you enjoy!


Comment and tell me your experience with Newsies!

Books That Made Me Cry

Hey y'all


I've seen a lot of YouTube videos where booktubers talk about books that made them cry. So I thought, why not do a post about mine on Blogger.
So here we are.

I will be listing them from least amount of crying to sobbing into my pillow crying.

(WARNING, THERE WILL BE SPOILERS)  (AND CAPSLOCK)


Random flower, because why not?


Little Women- Louisa May Alcott
Those of you who have read Little Women know what I am talking about. Beth. I loved Beth and several tears made their way down my face after her death.



Woah, another flower. I am on a roll.



Allegiant- Veronica Roth
Dystopian fiction is not really my thing. I borrowed these books from a friend because she thought I would like them. I did, except for this last book. WHAT AUTHOR KILLS OFF THE MAIN CHARACTER OF A SERIES????????????? I was emotional to say the least.




Pretty Flower


Mockingjay- Suzanne Collins
I have a lot of feelings on this book. Most of them negative. I hated this series. All the killing was stupid …

I'm Feeling A Little Green........

Happy St. Patrick's Day!!!!!!!


*throws confetti and shamrocks everywhere*






Make sure you wear green or you might get pinched.....

Music of the Week #10

Hello person who clicked on this post! Here's a cupcake *hands you cupcake*


Sorry I didn't post anything this past weekend. I was not feeling inspired and what's the point of trying when you don't have any inspiration?


This music of the week......

Piano Guys!!!




A Thousand Years
THIS IS MY FAVORITE PIANO GUYS SONG, PLEASE HELP CAN'T STOP LISTENING TO IT.


Rockabel's Canon
This song is so upbeat and catchy. I love it!


Don't You Worry Child
No words guys, no words


Beethoven's Five Secrets
Honestly where do I even start with this song??? Nowhere. Just listen.


Bring Him Home
It's a Les Miserables song. Nuff said.

Modest Clothes: Skirts

Skirts: 

"You skirts should cover your knees. If you are trying to be modest, you should not wear a mini skirt." -Me

Where you can find them:
Luckily, skirts are back in fashion now. (kind of) so you can find a few skirts at the stores. Sadly, they are mainly maxi skirts, pencil skirts, or above the knee. Often way above the knee.
Pencil skirts are really really tight, making it hard to walk. Plus what is the point of trying to be modest wearing a tube? Above the knee is a problem because when you sit down, people can see up you leg. Your skirt should cover at least half of your knee when you sit. And maxi skirts only look good on certain people. (I can't really complain because I'm one of those people....)

Amazon has a lot of skirts, you just have to scroll through 3 million junky ones to find them...
I would also suggest Lands End.
You can  look at Goodwill, or other consignment shops. Sometimes they have tons, other times: Nothing.

Leggings, and Shorts: But sometime…

Bibliophile Tag!!!!!

Hello everyone!

I was tagged by Catherine at from the Rebelling Muse to take the Bibliophile Tag.

So here we go!




The rules are:
Link back to her and tell her you answered her questions.
Check!

And to share with other bloggers, which I will do at the end.


1. What is your favorite fantasy novel/series?
Honestly, Catherine, you have no clue how hard it is to pick just one. So I won't!! :P
My top picks are Percy Jackson and the Olympians, the Heroes of Olympus, and the
Lunar Chronicles. My favorite novel is Heartless by Marissa Meyer. All really great reads!


2. What is your favorite historical novel?
The Virginian by Owen Wister. This book has just the right amount of wild west, romance, sarcasm, and wit to satisfy anyone.


3. What is your favorite contemporary novel?
Between the Lines by Jodi Picoult and Samantha van Leer. It's a really cute story. There's a sequel but it's not as good as the first one.


4. What character/book best describes your personality?
The Blue …

Music of the Week #9

Hello everyone!!

Happy Lent!


This music of the week is....

Celtic Thunder!

I love this group. My sister discovered them back in 2008 after they had first started. We have been obsessed since. They are an Irish band who sing Irish folk songs and they also do covers of other artists songs.


Steal Away
This song is freaking awesome!!!!!!!!!!! I love this one so much. There are no words.



Maid of Culmore
Irish folk song, their voices. nuff said.



Song for the Mira


Ireland's Call
Can I just say, when you watch this video a hundred times, you can learn how to do the arm movements that they are doing.


Take Me Home
This song is beautiful!!!



Well that's it for this week guys. Hope you enjoy and have a good week :)

Love,
-Lia

Lent

Ok.
I'm sorry, I'm sorry.
I meant to post this before Lent actually began....but school, life, etc. *Sigh*

Lent is a time to grow closer to God. It's the time to strengthen your relationship with Him, and do a little spring cleaning in your soul.

So....why do we fast?

Well, imagine there is a smoker and his wife is about to have a baby. He knows the smoke is bad for his kid, so he quits. Because the baby is more important then his cigarettes.

Now while the things we are offering up aren't bad in and of themselves (Soft drinks, candy, whatever) we are showing God that he is more important then earthly things.

Secondly, to strengthen our will power. Our will power is a gift from God. No other creatures have will power. Your will is like a muscle though. It needs constant use to make it stronger. And while Candy and soft drinks may have worked when you were younger, your will is stronger now. You need something heavier.

What you give up doesn't have to be totally poi…
