Song of the week : CHRISTMAS IS HERE, NOTHING ELSE MATTERS BUT HOLIDAY SPIRIT.

Christmas time has finally arrived. Christmas music has been playing non-stop for this girl *points at self* and christmas movies are the only option! nothing else! Lights are being strung up around houses, eggnog lattes are being sold at Disneyland, scarves and knit caps are now being worn by people besides hipsters and the smell of cinnamon and pure magic is filling the air. This weeks song of the week is of course a Christmas song, it was my favorite when I was younger and I use to sing it to my cat Hunter and he absolutely loved it!

It’s Santa Baby!! one of the best Christmas songs ever, true story its a fact!

I hope you all had an amazing Thanksgiving and I hope your week doesn’t completely suck! Think of Christmas, cinnamon, sparkly lights and family traditions if you get stuck in the holiday blues.

Thank you for reading and God bless you all!! ūüôā

Last Holiday and my Christmas tree

At the moment I’m sitting in my living room with my pups, my mom and my absolutely amazing Christmas tree. I will be writing about my Christmas tree tomorrow (probably)¬†so I wont go in to detail but its awesome so be excited to see pictures haha.

I believe I have good taste in movies, some movies I love just because the comedy is so stupid I laugh till I cry..those movies aren’t classy and those aren’t a great example..a great example would probably be The Big Sleep? Anyways this movie isn’t like a classic, it doesn’t captivate you and blow your mind like Citizen Kane or 8 1/2 but it does make you feel good. It is a feel good movie, like You’ve Got Mail or Please Dont Eat the Daisies (adore that movie) this movie makes me want to get outside even while it is pouring rain and start living..now I don’t know what exactly I would do or accomplish..make memories..thats it! ¬†The movie makes you¬† want to conquer the world, see everything, try everything ..do everything. Another reason I love this movie so much that¬†I smile at the mention of¬†its title is because of all the cooking done in it..I love Chef Didier!! This movie is perfect for me at the holidays..it makes me so grateful for my life and my family and friends. Its funny and sad..mostly funny and the characters are so perfect you feel like friends.

So light a fire (only if you have a fire-place!) grab a candy cane, a cup of hot chocolate and watch this movie and feel completely grateful and at peace.

Have an amazing sunday!!! (:


Song of the week (Christmas themed) also Mumford and Sons

This weeks song will be a song that will help to¬†get anyone¬†¬†feel the Christmas spirit! It’s my favorite Christmas song…I think..or at least right now it is. This weeks song is…..Jingle Bells by Frank Sinatra!! This song is amazing!!! it’s so cheerful, countless artists have recorded their own cover of this song but to me Frank Sinatra’s is the¬† best and always will be, which is no surprise because anything that Frank covered became his song and a song no one could ever sing¬†¬†better. This song will get you in the perfect mood for Christmas time..I guarantee it.

Now, I’m going to take a random turn and write about another band. I wanted to make this weeks song a song by them but I really needed it to be a christmas song since its christmas time and I can’t have a christmas song for the song of the week in the middle of July( well I can but it just wouldn’t work). The band I need to talk about is Mumford and Sons. This band is amazing, I have been listening to them for about a year now but today I really started listening to all their music to see if I like more of their songs besides the cave and little lion man…and guess what..The band is brilliant! The song that really caught my attention was Thistle and Weeds..its beautiful!¬†I hate¬†describing things with the word epic because it’s so over used with teenagers but seriously this song is epic..¬†The band seems to be so talented because it’s not¬†that¬† just together they are great but even separate they would be equally talented and that’s important. All of their songs have this folk indie rock sound that’s just fun and easy-going..the fact that they have a banjo in most of their songs helps give them the easy-going feel. The lyrics are more than lyrics they could be poetry..kinda like how some of ¬†The Doors song were like poetry. Anyways this band has a very unique sound and they are just great, The lead singers voice is so different, I can’t even compare it to anything and¬†I usually can do that with every lead singer. If you havent heard any of their music or if you have only heard little lion man and the cave you gotta check out Winter Winds, Liar and After the Storm..

I hope everyone has a great week!!
