A week of outfits #2

Late nights ....

Sometimes it's incredibly hard for me to fall asleep. I get stuck in a horrible routine where I stay up late, wake up early for school, nap afterschool and repeat it all again. Which causes my sleeping pattern to be so messed up, I can't fall asleep at regular times ! A few things I do to make my eyelids close a little faster are ... 

Read a book - 
I don't know why but reading puts me to sleep in a dim lighting. I feel like maybe because I have to focus and excersixe my brain to read, it tires me out faster. 
Listen to slow music -
Soothing music and slow songs are always a cute to insomnia at night time. It relaxes you. It calms you. It makes you dream. 
Burn some candles - 
Usually the certain smell can trigger. Your brain to fall asleep faster. Fall scents that bath and body works has like winter barn and bonfire soothe me. Also watching the candles light flicker helps too. 

These are all super simple and basic. But these have really helped me! Anything you suggest to do to fall asleep faster ?

Girl, Put in work .. The Weeknd Concert

For all of my fellow Vancouver living bloggers and music loving fans, you should all know that Abel aka " The Weeknd" was in town on Saturday ! Myself, my aunt, her boyfriend, his two cousin and a family friend all went together. A month earlier I convience everyone to buy tickets because I really wanted to go. Being a huge fan of The weeknd since I first heard him back in 2011. The convert was held at The Orpehum. A very large and beautiful venue downtown ! The concert was so dope! Amazing set work and singing done by The Weeknd. The vibe was out of this world, everyone was high on some sort of drug and loving life. Having seen a few people light up some joints in front of me, and beside me, everyone had a good time. For those that don't know me, I am a big party girl. In the best sense of the word. I just love going out with people, dancing, singing and having fun. I am, majority of the time, down to do almost anything that I find appealing or interesting. It was nice to see that my aunt's boyfriend's cousin was on the same page as I was. Seeing as we were both just jamming out to all the song. I had a VERY good night. It was one of those nights that reminded me why I love going out and doing things so much. Also one where I realize that I just love hanging out with my family. Say hello to my crew which consist of my aunt, her boyfriend and his cousin ! I have to say that we have a good thing going on. Now I have to endure the rest of the week remembering the feelings  I had Saturday night ... what a bummer !
Cheers to the rest of the week.

Another trilogy read and gone !

I just finished "The Mortal Instruments" book trilogy. Let me just say, WHY! WHY MUST IT END ! I'll admit, I've started reading them after I found out about the movie and then, became interested. I have always seen these books around the bookstore and library. My friends have raved about it when it first came it. But I never bought in to it. And I'm now cursing myself for not reading it soon! I wish I could say I was a TMI fan before the movie. Either way, I put all three books on hold at the library and waited. Within waiting, I grew impatient and listened to the audiobooks as well. In the span of a month I finished all three books. A book a day once I got my hands on it. I was thrown into the world of shadow hunters and demons. I rooted on Jace and Clarys tragic yet enduring romance. I cursed valentine for his evil ways. I end wish Simon was real so he could be my best friend. One thing I loved about the series was that it was action packed! It wasn't a romance novel with action. It was a action novel with romance. And not always the kind of heart-wrenching, adorable romance either. It was kind of bitter and unspoken of. What was my favourite part of TMI ? Two words. Jace Wayland. What a godly character he was. I fell for him almost as instantly as Cllary Fray, the main character did. A gorgeous warrior whose a little bit wounded, a little bit misguided but full of heart. Every scene he was in was my favourite. I loved his rude, sarcastic ways. What can I say? I love the totured boys. After finishing City of Bones, I treated my best friend And myself to go see the movie! It is, VERY different from the book. But I really liked the way they have set up the series for sequels. The movie was made with the book foundation but easily acceptable for fans who haven't read the books but are now interested in. This series has just become my new obsession ! I would highly recommend the movie and books to anyone who needs a new obsession. Or even a new past time.
 What are your thoughts about The Mortal Instruments ?
