music faves | april ’16


Months fly by so fast these days. It seemed like yesterday I was sitting among blankets a few days after Christmas, snuggled up with my cats, watching Star Wars.

Oh well. With change and time comes wisdom! (Pst: It’s almost my birthday.)

There’s so much great music out there these days. My music, Taylor Swift’s music, so many genres…

my unreasonable christmas list

Hey there! Sorry for the hiatus. I had a concert on Tuesday and the rest of the week was pretty busy.

I have compiled my Christmas list, and I decided that I would post it on here as well as giving it to my sorry relatives. (Haha) Below is a list of my unreasonable Christmas gifts I am wishing for!


Fender DG-60 Acoustic Guitar

Fender DG-60 Acoustic Guitar

If you did not know, I love writing songs (I will be the next Taylor Swift, haha) and I really need something other than a violin to play. Though I could afford this myself, I’d rather have it gifted.

Wacom Intuos Tablet

This tablet should help me with my digital art. I really love the layout.

Mini Polaroid Camera

Polaroids, am I right?

What do you want for Christmas?

october favourites 2015 | feat. maybelline + rimmel london

Happy November! I can’t believe October is gone! Next thing you know, I’ll be raving about Christmas.

I have never done a favourites post (or have I? Is this considered one?) so I thought I’d start now, haha. Here are some of my favourites from October!

Autumn Colours 2

I’m loving all of these autumnal nail colours, featuring Avon, Wet n Wild, and Essie. Post here.


I added another eye shadow to my collection. This time it was the Maybelline Expert Wear single! Review here.


Eek! I love this lipstick, courtesy of Kate Moss for Rimmel London. Review here.

Music ♥ this month:

BADLANDS by Halsey: I just discovered Halsey, and as an alternative lover, her album is perfect. Tracks include Colors, Castle, Drive, and more.

HELLO by Adele: Adele Adele Adeleeeeee!

RENEGADES by X Ambassadors: I love this song! It’s really autumn-ish.

HOTLINE BLING by Drake: Sorry, not sorry. This song is so catchy, people. It deserves a spot on here.

What have you been loving this past month?

fall 2015 playlist | feat. ed sheeran and more

Good evening pretty people!

Tomorrow is Friday, hooray! I don’t know about you, but I am ready for the weekend already.

I really love music. In fact, I write my own songs, dabble in piano, and play the violin very well. I also love making playlists, as it’s a way to combine all of my favourite bands, singers, and people into one little list. Playlists help me… escape, sort of, from other things happening. Today, I have an autumn playlist full of moody rhythms, soft rock, pop, and techno from some of the top artists trending now.

bad blood music video review


So the Billboard Music Awards just premiered, and the opening performance was the release of the music video for Taylor Swift’s Bad Blood. I am a HUGE fan of Taylor, and so this was highly anticipated.

The video starts out with Catastrophe (Taylor Swift) and Arsyn (Selena Gomez). The two best friends appear to be battling some businessmen. The song starts, with a rap remix featuring Kendrick Lamar. The video follows Taylor’s gang of best friends, including Karlie Kloss, Gigi Hadid, Cara Delevigne, Zendaya, Lily Aldridge, and more.

The video was very modern and clean, with so many visual effects.

Very good.
