Album: 25 (2015)
You have got to be living under a rock if you haven’t heard Adele’s new song yet. Basically, she returned after 3 years with a new single and slayed us all!!!
I’m usually not a fan of posting songs that are all the rage at the moment… but I love this woman, I had been waiting for her new album for ages.. and when a song did come out.. it was a song so beautiful and tragic that I haven’t been able to listen to much else since yesterday.
She looks beautiful, she sounds MIND BLOWING.. it’s ridiculous.. it clearly sounds like a coming-of-age number and I’m excited for the album to drop… Enjoy.. and have a great day 🙂
PS. Can’t believe she’s actually younger than me.. all types of envy!

Album: Queen of the Clouds (2014)
Hello to all the people of the world. This little girls is back home from her adventures in the desert. I spent a month there and I have returned having reflected and with some perspective. It’s really great being back, I missed my bed and my mums cooking for sure… but I also miss the town I left behind.
I had the time of my life there… being adventurous and trying new things… hanging out with old friends, making new ones and crossing some things off my bucket list. It is definitely possible I might soon just move over there.
While I did a lot of touristy stuff, I missed out on some too coz I was broke as all hell and living like a hobo on my friends salaries… what makes a vacation memorable is not whether you got to jump off a building so you could see the palm island from up above… what makes a vacation memorable is this…
Picture it: You’re driving down a busy road… the Dubai skyline as your background, you can see the Burj all lit up, your childhood friend is driving the car… the music is on loud and you two are just being crazy singing along, laughing like crazy as you reminisce old times, or actually cue up a whole playlist of songs you used to listen to together as kids… some other people wave or smile at you as they drive by and you think… this aint so bad…
I’ll try to add some videos or pictures from my time there in the next blog… till then, enjoy this song I was absolutely obsessed with during my time there… and have a good day where ever in the world you are 🙂
Greeting from Dubai! I am currently traveling. The reasons for my travel were heartbreaking and sudden. I made a choice to go away for a little while to change my mind and get some distance from back home… I’m 5 days into my vacation and I have to say, it is working brilliantly.. I am staying here with my childhood friend.. the dream of us being roomies was almost 10 years in the making and it is finally happening.
I’m being a full fledged tourist, and I have already fallen in love with the Dubai skyline… and the people here. Not to mention all the time spent riding around the car with my friend.
I am discovering some really good music here… this track being my new favorite. So enjoy, have fun and greeting from the desert. *kisses*
Artist: Ed Sheeran
Album: X (2014)
Sometimes life gives you a moment of happiness and it’s quickly followed by devastation… but it’s okay it is that way things work… I’ve had a long going on these past few weeks, from falling out with real close friends to meeting new people and then losing those people in the most hurtful of ways…
I have a lot of choices and decisions to make in the days to come… big changes are coming and I hope they are for the good. Summer is officially 4 days away for me… and after that is what I’m hoping a new and better phase of my life.
Till then, Ed Sheeran is the current mood of the moment… I hope everyone in the world is having a good day. 🙂
Artist: The Neighbourhood
Song: Sweater Weather
Album: I Love You (2013)
It’s another one of those happy dark kinda tunes, for a good day. It is a very good day today, it looks like rain, the weather is chilly again… and I am an aunt. My beautiful baby sister had a beautiful baby girl yesterday and I am in love with a tiny tiny little person…
So to everyone in the world, smile and have a good day wherever you are 🙂

Song: My Heart is Open
Album: V (2014)
How inappropriate is it really to put back to back Adam Levin songs on the blog, huh? huh?
I really don’t care, as I was pointed out to yesterday, my attraction to this man is unhealthy. But to set the record straight, I loved him before the Voice, before he was Sexiest man alive and before he got his act together. He is one of those guys who I feel personally happy for, because he is doing big things now like performing at the Oscars (Bae!!)) and really turning in to this incredible artist.
This new album, has some really good songs in it, this one being my new obsession. I like the Adam/Gwen collaboration and the lyrics have so many feels!
PS. I meant to do a blog on Sugar, but I don’t think I should now, considering the immense Adam love I’m already showing, so check out the music video.. .it’s love!
As for now, where ever you are in the world, have a good day, smile and enjoy! 🙂 (says the person always putting up sad songs!)
Artist: Adam Levine (Maroon 5)
Song: Lost Stars
Album: OST Begin Again, V (2014)
I am having a not-so-good day in a line of particularly dark days. I have basically given up and decided January is just not gonna do it for me. So between the mopings I find relief in reading good books, re-watching old good movies (like Last Night) and discovering new ones. Today I watched Begin Again, granted, it was for the love of Adam (that guy though!!) but I ended up loving it for everything else.
It has a very indie movie touch about it, it has Keira, who I’ve fallen in love with since yesterday and Mark Ruffalo who I love already. The concept is music based, which always lifts my mood… and the music in itself is SPECTACULAR. The main song, Lost Stars is also nominated for the Oscars (sang by Bae, ofcourse!)
This definitely raised my mood today, so I hope you have a listen and enjoy as well. Cheers. 🙂
TV Show: The Killing (Season 4, Episode 6: Eden)
“I never had a real house to grown up in. I never belonged anywhere. And all my life, I was looking for that thing, you know. Thinking that it was out there somewhere. That all I had to do was find it. But I think, maybe, home was us. It was you and me, together in that stupid car, riding around, smoking cigarettes. I think that was everything. I’m sorry. I should have known you were the one person who always stays, and you were my best friend. “
I’ve somehow always been drawn to (and prefer it this way as well) things that are not recognized far and wide. This is why, some of my most favorite books are ones people have never heard about. This is also why most of favorite TV shows have had a very short shelf life. They have been cancelled and not high rated. Not to say I have tacky-taste, sometimes the good ones are just not recognized.
The Killing was one of these shows. It just never got back on peoples good graces after season 1 and was cancelled after a very short season 4. I, however, love the show for the chemistry between Linden and Holder and the overall basic story line.
This quote is from the very last scene of the show, a scene some might argue should not have been there as it was supposedly different from the entire shows setting… I will not defend it as I have learned there is no point in swaying people over to the side of things you love. You can’t make them love it, you can only maintain it’s high esteem in your own eyes. All I know is, this scene had me in tears and even now I look at it from time to time… So sharing a snippet of it with you all.
Have a good day 🙂
Artist: Imagine Dragons
Album: Night Visions (2012)
Happy New Year. I know the new year is meant to start off with some positive vibes and high hopes… and not that I am not generally happy… but the pessimist in me is forever just resigned to fate and waiting to see what is in store… so 2015, I’m ready dude, take your best shot!
Not that this song is a bad vibe for me, it is sad but so beautiful. Granted, 30 minutes ago I probably would’ve been more upbeat while putting this up but circumstances have been such that my hoodie is on my head, my “heartbreak” playlist is playing on my iTunes and generally the dark cloud is hanging close and low over my head at the moment. Seems that the era of moving forward and burning bridges will continue this year… and to all my people I say, I am happy for you and wish you all the best… even though I might not be particularly enjoying this situation.
Hope this year turns all our luck around. Enjoy!
Ps. the video might cause you to shed a tear or two… but so worth it!
