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!

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.


                                                            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 and very violent. The last ten chapters of this book, I was crying ridiculously. It was bad.
                                                         I think it's apparent that I like flowers.

The Royal Ranger- John Flanagan
This is when the sobbing escalated very fast. I was so upset and almost threw the book across my room. Alyss was my favorite character and I just...... GAH!!!!!!!

                                                         last bit of flowers, I promise. hehehehehe

And now for the book that had me sobbing the most.
dun dun dun

Heartless - Marissa Meyer
I kid you not, I had to stop reading and go sit in the bathroom so I could sob without my family noticing. I cried so hard, I needed water because I was dehydrated. I'm not even going to say what happened, go read this book. It is sad but it is so worth the read.

                                                      you thought it was going to be flowers, didn't you???

Thus concludes this sad post. I had an interesting time writing this. I'm sorry if I spoiled you but I did tell you there would be spoilers.


Comment down below what you thought of my troll skills.
Also what books you have cried at.

What's your favorite snack to eat while you read?
(I'm hungry)

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

Comment if you would follow and read it.


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

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


"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 sometimes you can save the knee length skirts. If you have a dress or skirt that just barely doesn't cover your knee, I would suggest  wearing some leggings that cover the knee. Knee length legging, capri length, etc. Awesome use of yoga pants. They are very comfy.

If you are an active girl, wear shorts. Seriously. Though I would suggest this for any skirt wearing girl, a pair of shorts or leggings under your skirt are extremely helpful when tree climbing, dealing with gusty winds, or other such moments.

If you go running, I suggest normal running leggings/pants under your skirt. Basically, all the reasons running pants are helpful (pockets, wicking, muscle cool down, etc) are still helpful, but yet modest when worn under your skirt! For the skirt, I would suggest something just below the knee to mid shin. If you wear a skirt that is too long it will get tangled in your legs when you run or you could step on the hem. I would also suggest wearing a skirt with a bit of flare. That gives you more room to move your legs, plus a cute fluffle when you run. Ditto with going to the gym. If you make your own skirts, make them with sport material. I also suggest not using heavy materials with a zipper or buttoned waist. I don't know if anyone else has experienced this, but the waist shifts itself upward when you run. Not immodest, just really, REALLY annoying. Elastic waists are best.

If you are working outside,  I would suggest a skirt of about the same length: Knee- Mid Shin. Denim is best, but I also have seen some cute canvas skirts and cargo style skirts. (Might I scream: POCKETS!)

Sometimes it can be really hard wearing a skirt. The  awkward looks you get. Wearing T-shirts and sneaker with your skirt...The hardest part for me is working out wearing a skirt. There are a lot more people wearing skirts every where now. (Every time you see a teenage girl wearing a skirt with a hoodie/T shirt  *I HAVE FOUND MY PEOPLE*) but the gym is not one of those places.


I guess we'll just have to be the trail blazers, eh?

If you have any questions about what skirt to wear when, comment!


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.

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 Castle by L. M. Montgomery. It's so whimsical and pretty. I love it!!!!!!!!!!

5. What is your favorite book character of all time?
Ugh. This is hard. It changes from time to time after every new book I read. So right now, it would be Cath from Heartless.

6. What is your favorite author?
Jane Austen, hands down.

7. Do you judge a book by it's cover?
I hate that I do it but I have a better chance of reading it when I see it's cover. I usually read the blurb first and if I like it, then I read it.

8. Paper books, ebooks or both?

9. Have you read a book you didn't like?
Of course! I read the Hunger Games and trust me when I say, the books are more violent than the movie.

10. Who is your favorite book villain?
Javert from Les Miserables. He is horrid.

Those were my answers for your tag, Catherine!!

I tag:
Maria at Attic Treasure Chest
Naomi at Wonderland Creek
Natalie at Raindrops on Roses and Whiskers on Kittens
Olivia at Meanwhile, in Rivendell

Have fun guys!


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 :)



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 pointless either.

You can give up the mornings that you sleep in. You can give up your comfort and start running. That may sound fun the first couple days, but after awhile you'll be dragging yourself to the gym. Why do I have to? Can't I quit? Nope. Because this is what your doing this lent.
Or maybe start that diet?
Or read a saint book when you would normally watch Agents of SHEILD or Dr. Who.

The key is to keep sacrificing. Say a morning offering each morning when you roll out of bed and offer your day to God.

Have a holy Lent!
