my top three favorite magazines!

#3 Posh24
it's an online site but ther recently came out with a magazine. I like the paperquality of it and it's nice colors in it. I feel like they can be a bit late with "new trends" and stuff, and it's not really high fashion or anything

#2 teen vogue
I love Vogue! the magazine is thick with a lot of pages, they do interviews, and it's a lot of teen fashion, and it's a lot of colors going on. The magazine very versatile, there is something new to find for every style

#1 H&M magazine!
This is my all time favorite magazine, and it's free!
I get pictures directly taken from the runaways, and we are talking big runaways such as Marc by Marc Jacobs, Stella McCartney, Vera Wang, Balenciaga, Valentino (my personal favorite, love Valentino!) and new comers as Clover Canyon.
and they have at LEAST 5 pages with street style *swoons*
H&M is always updated when it comes to the hottest fashion, and they are great at finding trend's from the runaway before they hit the street's. I like H&M's magazine a lot because every time i open up the magazine im flooded with inspiration, and as a girl who is very in to high fashion and make it her own, that's exactly what I need. and not only that but they give those tips and trix when it comes to clothes that I would never have thought of otherwise. 
If you are a fashion monster, always looking for new unique pieces, and likes to be inspired I would really recommend this magazine which I think you can find at almost any H&M store!

Stephenie Meyer

I’m sure a lot of you guys have read at least one of Meyer’s books.
She was the one that got me reading, Twilight had me hooked, and I even ditched a test to be able to continue to read the book. Yeah, I was obsessed.

And not only have her books touched my heart, but millions of other hearts around the world.
Every book she has written so far has been made into a movie, and the movies always become the hype of the year. “Stephenie Meyer” and “twilight” is the only thing people have in their mouth’s these days, and especially now when The Host movie was released. I personally liked the Host (book) better than Twilight.

She got the idea to write twilight from a dream. And that dream got her earning millions of dollars every year.
She became really big after the first Twilight movie that came out in November 21th 2008.
And it was during that time she put down the pen. She released her last book in May that year.

I’m grateful that she wrote five amazing books but I’m at the same time very disappointed.

Why does fame do this to great authors? I don’t care what people have to say about her writing, it might not be the best, but her way of telling a story is. The Host had me hooked in place for days, I loved the alien world, and Wanda/ Melanie, and that cliffhanger I remember killed me.

But never would I have imagined that that cliffhanger was it. The end.

Every time someone ask her about It she gives the same male answer “I’m busy with the movies” and I even heard her say in an interview “I’m so busy with my dress that I’m going to wear on the movie awards” WHAT THE ACTUAL DUCK?

Why would someone quit writing, why would someone disappoint readers like that? If she Is tired of writing, if she doesn’t find any joy in it anymore, say so, I can accept that, we are all humans, but why LIE?
No, everyday that goes by without a new book she loses some respect me.

And now that all her books are made into movies, what is she going to do? No excuse anymore

happy easter!

It’s finally Easter break! I saw a bunny yesterday on my way home; I thought that was a bit random haha! How are you guys celebrating Easter?

We don’t really celebrate Easter here at home, we buy candy and might go out and have dinner, but we don’t celebrate it with decorating the house and stuff like that. Although I would like to do that, I like decorating and doing DIYs. Oh well, there is always a next year.

This week break I have some stuff scheduled. It’s my mother’s birthday on Monday, yes, April fool day, then on Tuesday I’m meeting up with my ol’ friend who I haven’t seen since October I think! Then later that evening I’m going to my friends place, Julia, she is having a sleepover for me and our friend Carin (i did my first "teatime with lihini ever on her, but back then i called it interview lol, find it HERE), we call ourselves “the trio” I know, how original. Then on Thursday my friend William who I had over as a guest on “teatime with Lihini”(you can find it here) is having a movie night! Me and my friend Maria won’t stay long because my mom only allowed me to be there to 10pm, but I will take what I get, considering the fact that she wouldn’t even let me go in the first place.

And of course I’m going to read tons of books! (That’s what I’m telling myself, I always end up finishing top’s two books…)
My Easter break reading list will be uploaded in an hour!

this one is not healthy, just wanted to start off by saying that. I do enjoy "unhealthy" stuff too, I mean, i did eat brownies and cookies for breakfast before...

I don't know how many of you guys remember the frozen hot chocolate Oprah Winfrey was crazy about, she said it made her wan't to "dance on the chandeliers"

and I have to agree with her! i would have this everyday if I could, it's so tasty!
the restaurant that make the drink came out with the receipt 50 years later, but hey, better late than never right?

the Host - Movie review

When an unseen enemy threatens mankind by taking over their bodies and erasing their memories, Melanie will risk everything to protect the people she cares most about, proving that love can conquer all in a dangerous new world.

I have waited since I was 13 year old for this movie to come out. I knew that this day would come, even thou they didn't know it them self, I knew. They should just have asked me in the first place...
I was so disappointed; I hated the movie it sucked!!... Said by no one ever.

The Host really set the bar high for the coming sci-fi movies this year, magnificent!
I have to give credit to the girl who played Melanie/ Wanda, she was AMAZING! Her acting skills and the blonde seeker too, they were both so great, I really believed that they were something different.
The scenery was so beautiful, they captured every single detail, especially the cave, and it was so well made. I saw the building process on the official Facebook group, and when watching the movie I could not believe what I was seeing, it looked very real.
The relationship between the characters, especially between Ian, Jared and Wanda was very complex. She was two in one, and loved with two hearts. It was hard picking which guy you liked the most, because you could understand the situation and that made me accept them both equally. But, between us, I liked Ian a tiny bit better because I might have had a, oh you know, tiny tiny crush on him since before… like, Percy Jackson before.
I will give this one 3, 5 out of 5
You might think that is low, but that is some seriously good grades, it’s not like books, there is just so much that can go wrong in movies.
The movie would have gotten higher rates if the producer would have taken some chances, I think they could have made one scene in particular more explosive that would make the audience sit on the edge biting our nails off. Otherwise the producer and the screenwriter did great!

that's my man right there!
but I have to say, he was pretty good looking to...

after writing this post I took some time to google the boy's and if they had any gf.. don't judge me, a girl can hope.

and I found this pic
he is a piece on heaven here on earth. I am in love with his looks. and he is taken. he dates the short female that  comes into the movie in the end, and no, that was not a spoiler ;)
ps. I think he will be my celebrity crush from now on.
pps. i do not share.
