Quote: Barack Obama

Standard

dfmdf.png‘Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the one we’ve been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.’

‘If you’re walking down the right path and you’re willing to keep walking, eventually you’ll make progress.’

‘The future rewards those who press on. I don’t have time to feel sorry for myself. I don’t have time to complain. I’m going to press on.’

‘We, the People, recognize that we have responsibilities as well as rights; that our destinies are bound together; that a freedom which only asks what’s in it for me, a freedom without a commitment to others, a freedom without love or charity of duty or patriotism, is unworthy of our founding ideals, and those who died in their defence’.

Quote: Eleanor Roosevelt

Standard

sdkjdsf‘With the new day comes new strength and new thoughts.’

‘You must do the things you think you cannot do.’

‘You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, ‘I lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.’

‘The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.’

‘We are afraid to care too much, for fear that the other person does not care at all.’

‘No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.’

‘Never allow a person to tell you no who doesn’t have the power to say yes.’

‘It is better to light a candle than curse the darkness.’

‘It is not fair to ask of others what you are not willing to do yourself.’

‘Friendship with one’s self is all important, because without it one cannot be friends with anyone else in the world.’

November ‘What I’m’

Standard

17012621_1300x1733What I’m watching – Currently in my spare time I’ve been watching Happy Endings, which I think is the same as last month too, it’s a comedy about five friends that live in Chicago. I just love the series and I love the characters!

Additionally, I’ve started re-watching Suits (starring Gabriel Macht and Patrick J. Adams). If you’re unfamiliar, Suits is a show about Mike Ross, a brilliant college-dropout, who, after a drug deal gone wrong, finds himself in the office of New York’s best lawyer, Harvey Spectre, who gives him a job.

I nearly forgot all about Doctor Who, series 9 is airing currently and I’m loving it, and I’m a Celebrity, which is also airing at the moment.

What I’m subscribing to – This month I have been watching so much Cereal Time, a breakfast show hosted my Charlie McDonnell and Jimmy Hill. This channel is rather silly but very entertaining to watch especially if you’re already a fan of the channels Charlieissocoollike and Jimmy0010.

jonnI’ve also just finished watching Jonny’s video on the channel ‘I read books in nightclubs’ and thought it was a good time to recommend his videos again. So please check out both of these channels if you haven’t already.

What I’m listening to – My favourite song right now, which has been played on repeat, is Ocean Drive by Duke Dumont.

However, my favourite band right now is Busted. Now, if you know me, you’ll know that I love McFly and I’ve subsequently loved McBusted who have been touring and making music together over the last couple of years. All this time I’ve loved Busted, of course, but I would never have believed that the bBusted-Reunionand would reunite for another tour, let alone make new music together… but alas, the impossible is reality and in May of 2016 I am going to see Charlie, Matt and James play as Busted with both old and new songs! I’M SO EXCITED. I GET TO SEE CHARLIE LIVE FOR THE FIRST TIME!

What I’m eating – Brioche. This may seem totally random but today I tried Brioche for the first time ever and will now be buying it much more regularly. That is all.

What I’m quoting – ‘Peace cannot be kept by force, it can only be achieved by understanding’. – Albert Einstein.

Music: Caro Emerald

Standard

Caro_Emerald_38286Recently brought to my attention by a friend, Caro Emerald is a Dutch pop and jazz singer. Her music and her style is very 50s and 60s in its approach. I really enjoy her music and I think this is because it resembles music from the 50s while including elements of a more modern style. In addition, the lyrics to her music, which you may expect to also resemble the 50s, are very modern and praise the independent women and are very feminist. The messages they promote I think are so important.

This is the ‘about’ summary from her YouTube Channel: ‘Full of songs about dancing, flirting and declarations of independence. Her smouldering vocals update the classic Americano sound with a contemporary sheen and suggestive lyrics over a melting pot of sounds and influences – yet the sound is entirely, inimitably that of an exciting new artist capturing hearts and minds across the continent’.

Please check Caro Emerald’s work out:
