This is a bit of a fangirl rant. You HAVE been warned! Lots of YouTube links, gif sets and Tumblr links included~

Dreamworks Animation makes the most amazing films I have ever seen in my life. How to Train Your Dragon and Rise of the Guardians are my two top favourites hands down.

I have been watching How to Train Your Dragon over and over again ever since my family bought the DVD. It’s a beautiful film.

One of fitting in, becoming who you are, forbidden friendships, and respect.

The amount of work that’s been put into this film is phenomenal. The smallest details were taken into consideration to truly make the film its own. If you look at each dragons fire, each is different and personalized to match the individual dragon. The expressions of the characters faces truly let the audience connect and fall in love with them.

I love seeing the actors behind the scenes, they match their characters so well (especially Hiccup) its’ almost scary! Here’s a clip: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RpxBMdl07sY

Here’s a short clip showing off some of the main dragons: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7VJNetohMAM

Dragons: Riders of Berk -the TV series for How To Train Your Dragon (Seeing the teens train their dragons and their friendship grow is amazing)

And I shall leave off with one of my favourite lines from the film from Hiccup:

“And now the spinning. Thanks for nothing, you useless reptile.”

Old Navy launched a special section a while back where some of the clothing was marked with tags that said “Studio Spotlight”. This meant that those pieces were from the line of clothes that the designers created! Below is what the tag looks like:

This piece that I purchased was the Old Navy Women’s one-button blazer. Here’s a link to what the whole blazer looks like:

The creator for this line including the blazer is Shanti Markstrom.

I love buying something that has more meaning than just being some article of clothing! The Studio Spotlight tag could be opened and had a paper in it with information about the creation of the blazer! It was the most adorable thing I had ever seen!

Also, I thought I would include the video about Shanti’s line that she created for you guys, it’s really cool:

I took some pictures of what the paper looked like, HAVE A LOOK!CSC_0965

I’m definitely hoping to stumble across some more Studio Spotlight pieces more often!~

If there’s one thing I love about Pretty Little Liars, it’s their amazing fashion!

This has to be the most relevant quote since I started watching the series!

I love that each of the girls have their own unique style that really reflects their character quite well. If you didn’t know anything about the show or their characters, you could actually get an idea just from their appearances.

Mandi Line truly is an amazing costume designer! Here’s a video that talks about how she creates each of the girls look: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J9lgy6GhI0Q Spencer surprised me the most, it was adorable~

Aria is a very vintage like girl! She’s what I would call the thrifter! Her outfits are not things you can just find in a store mannequin, you have to personalize it and truly make it your own!

Hanna truly signifies what an “it” girl is; the one with all the up-to-date fashion that is currently trending! I absolutely love her outfits, and it’s how I would dream of dressing, but I feel like it’s a hard look to maintain. She looks so out-there and ready to go out anytime anyday! Ever her slump days look great!hannah_0

Emily is the character who’s fashion definitely changed over the seasons. While the other girls didn’t change as much, Emily (from my perspective) acquired a more tough badass feel to her looks. I think her signature piece is her leather jacket, it really makes her look edgy. I don’t normally love her outfits as much, but I feel that now she’s gone through so many situations because of A, her look says, “I’m not afraid of you. Bring it.” Funny enough, off-screen from her jock character, Shay Mitchell is actually my favourite person in real life! I mean, HAVE YOU SEEN HER? she’s gorgeous! I only wish she could look like that when she’s playing Emily as well!emily-fields-tea-cup

Spencer has the most sophisticated wardrobe out of all the girls! She’s one of my top two favourites! I always think of an honour roll student/Tommy Hilfiger/American Eagle kinda look to her, which I personally love. This jacket below is one of my favourite pieces that she’s worn. I have a denim jacket similar to this, but the army green really makes it look tough and edgy, which is a nice contrast to her normal look. 0 (1)

Mwuaha! It’s halloweeeeeen~

Bring on the ghouls, monsters, witches anddddd pumpkins!

Actually, I could do without the scary since I’m a HUGE scaredy cat! However, in the spirit of Halloween  me and some friends got together to do some pumpkin carving!

Meet the crew!

Don’t be deceived!

It was POURING rain when we were picking out our pumpkins, GAH!

I also put together a fun quick 3 minute video of our pumpkin carving if you would like to have a look!

watch in 480p for better quality~ 

This tiny pumpkin is eating the bigger one! ONOMNOM

Meet Frankenchu; the zombie version of Pikachu!

I’m not a fan of Halloween, but I DO enjoy movies like Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas and fun Halloween songs such as: Terror Time Again, The Hex Girls, (<– From Scooby Doo movies) and This is Halloween~

Today is a windy, rainy sorta bad weather day that is the one thing all commuters like myself hate! However, today I am home for the day and I was thinking of all the things I can do today and thought I might share it with you fellow bloggers!

 

  1. SLEEP IN! (Let’s be real, we all need it!)
  2. Spend that morning till noon reading all those blogs you’ve been meaning to catch up on!
  3. Read a magazine and enjoy that simple quiet time with some music~
  4. Watch some YouTube videos to stay up-to-date with your favourite YouTuber’s!
  5. Read a couple of chapters from that book you’ve been meaning to catch up on
  6. Appreciate the fact that you are still super cozy and comfy in those pajama’s and snuggled up in bed
  7. Make yourself a hot cup of hot cocoa with whip cream or a refreshing vanilla ice cream smoothie because you deserve it
  8. Hide yourself away and dedicate some time to write in your journal or draw in your sketchbook
  9. Look through images for some inspiration and make collages if you are like me; always in need of inspiration!
  10. Waste away some hours in the middle of the day to give yourself a well-needed nap
  11. Watch some movies you’ve been telling yourself to see! (I finally saw Coraline last night!)
  12. Go through your closet and make some brand-new outfit combinations
  13. Then re-vamp your room in big or small ways!~
  14. Create that bucket list you’ve been meaning to tackle on!
  15. Keep away from the interacting with people today and take photo’s or do whatever let’s you have fun!
  16. Reflect on your life; are you doing everything you want to do?

How do you spend your lazy day? =)

Ah! Tomorrow is the first day back to school! I’m still in the crazy Frosh ’12 mode after a week of crazy cheers and awesome events! Oh, university life, you are just too much at times!

No matter what, the first day back always gives me that funny butterflies in the tummy feel, the awkwardness of what to wear, thinking of how everyone’s gunna look and trying NOT to walk around like an idiot finding your class so your aren’t the late one! (The hard part is trying to act like you don’t have to try to look so good or so cool effortlessly)

My way of getting ready is packing that schoolbag and having that schedule ready! Yes, I’m lame, I did make sure to get an agenda because I KNOW I’m gunna need it! I even printscreened my schedule because I don’t have a printer *facepalm*

I realized that I had actually visualized in my head what I’m going to wear … how sad …

And of course, since I have long breaks, I just HAVE to have my music up to date! My current FAV song, Autotune by Jason Chen ft. the ever so awesome Bubz! I always smile and feel content listening to this~

How do you deal with back to school? Best of luck to everyone! =)

HELLOOOOOOOOO helloberry!

Ever heard of them? http://helloberryinc.com/index.php

You must be crazy or always looking down at your phone if you haven’t noticed these delicious arm candies walking around everywhere!

After seeing my favourite YouTuber’s, ThatsHeart and Beautycakez wear these, I instantly fell in love! I waited months and months, constantly debating about purchasing any bracelets, but now I finally did it! Seeing an email saying your package has been shipped made me the giddiest girl in the WORLD!

Receiving a package in the mail JUST for you is THE COOLEST THING IN THE WORLD! Much better than a text msg! I love things that are personalized and have great care for the little details taken into it, and shoutout to this team for doing it right! From the stamp to the card, it’s all just super adorable! (and I’m NOT a girly girl!)

It makes you feel so special!

Helloberry bracelet: London Fog Smoothie

Helloberry bracelet: Mocha Mini Smoothie 

I chose neutral coloured bracelets so that I could have more to match with, but I really recommend buying a bold colour because the contrast with the gold chain will make it stand out beautifully! (They’ve also started silver as well, woohoo!)

The thicker bracelet (The London Fog Smoothie) is, in my opinion, much more of a statement compared to the mini smoothie, which is more for that nice dainty arm candy to have.

I’m a very skinny person, so the next time I’m buying, I’m going to have to see if I can get a customize bracelet so that it has a more snug fit for me.

I must sound like some crazy advertiser, but I’m not. (But I have been waiting to get these so that I could write a blog post about them!) When I buy things like jewelry, I enjoy every aspect of it. Finding a brand WORTH buying from is what counts too. I do my research and wait for a long period of time before finalizing something like this because I know in the end it’ll be worth it. This team not only advertises themselves well, but they always reply to their customers and welcome them into the family, which I think is just amazing! #ihearthelloberry

Shay Mitchell, commonly known as “Emily Fields” on the hit show Pretty Little Liars is helping to kickoff and showoff her skinnies for American Eagle OutfittersLive Your Life” campaign for Fall 2012!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8KcZDolqBLw&feature=plcp

I personally adore Shay and her fashion. She has such a great personality and it really adds to her style~

American Eagle, not somewhere I shop at (price and style-wise) really went all out for their campaign! It draws in the eye with their quirky styles and their originality. I’m a sucker for great advertising and they get a 10/10 from me! Even if you don’t shop there, I highly recommend checking out their site at least!

The video for Shay’s behind-the-scene photoshoot: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cqPwhcKvgkI

This season, AEO is all about expressing your individual style and finding your own look,

which is why they’ve chosen an awesome and eclectic group to represent the new collection, complete with athletes, musicians, and even students.

 

Have a look at the other guys and girls denim styles! Trust me, the site makes it quite interesting and interactive, it’s worth seeing~

 

Under the section “Top off your fit”, every jean style has someone modelling it in several stylish AEO tops.

 

What do you think?

The hour is upon us! They (Kevin Kubota, aka the dude from framedshow) from the YouTube channel Framedshow basically said there’s certain times where we are at our peak, where we are most inspired.

Check out the video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v88joctpp5M&feature=plcp

Unfortunately for me, that happens to be night time … like, the middle of the night, 4am, middle of the night. It’s tiring, but when I’m going, NOTHING stops me. When do you think I wrote this post along with pretty much all of my other ones? That’s right, 3:30am! Because who needs sleep these days, right? PSH. Anyways, when I mean inspired, I mean, I’m trying on different outfits, creating new projects, editing videos and photos, thinking of blog posts and who knows what else! I’m most inspired at this time probably because no one’s awake to bother me and I can surf on the net and go through my books for loads of photos and inspirations with that warm cup of milk while being super comfy in bed~

I specifically remember so many nights I’ve woken up , or forced myself to wake up just to write down a line, a word, a statement or an idea because so many times I tell myself “I’ll remember, I’ll remember” .. of course to forget in the morning!

When are you most creative or active in the day? Remember, never do regular tasks in your golden hours!

I was walking past the store Aeropostale and saw a HUGE poster of Chloe Moretz in front! I stopped and stared. Next thing I know, I was at home googling this up, and giving this girl a thumbs up! ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sXsZH0EFKBk&feature=my_liked_videos&list=LLaEaViJt_-j09nLYEBYFiUQ )

The 15-year-old actress has just been named Aéropostale’s celebrity brand ambassador! What does this mean? That Moretz will star in a campaign for the brand, beginning with the 2012 back-to-school season.

Personally, Chloe is just this super adorable and young girl that knows how to have fun with fashion and she just makes anything work because of her outgoing personality. I really found this out through seeing her on the cover of Seventeen magazine and looking at her behind-the-scenes footage: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yJ42fYJqlv4

Chloe is what I would define as feminine, fun and chic. She knows how to stay comfy, but still have fun with what she wears.  Below are her promo photo’s with the captions labelled underneath. Check out the site: http://www.aeropostale.com/shop/index.jsp?categoryId=3534619

Breaking hearts-cool as can be in jeans & our moto jacket.

Leaps & Bounds- layers of texture topped with a bold hat.

Laid Back- casual as ever in our jeggings & tee layered with our fleece vest.

All Class- never missing a beat in animal denim print.

Colour Me This- lace leggings rock a classic mohair sweater.

The New Bohemian- our long patterned skirt & cardigan; mix it up boho chic.

What do you think of her? The bohemian and breaking hearts looks are my two personal favourites. I think for such a young girl, she can make it work representing this store~
