Some things I truly love and that make me feel better, or myself, or just make me happy in general.

Music. 

Image

What can I say, its my biggest passion ever. Music has helped me get through some of the hardest times in my life, and when I felt miserable it  has always made me feel better.

Image

I literally have no idea what I would do with my life if music wasn’t such a big part of it.

Image

Community service 

Image

Every year, I do CAS week – or community service week. 8 hours a day for a week. We go off to a different place each year and do our best to help the people and the settlement there.

Image

This does wonders for your happiness and contentment and truly teaches you to never take what you have for granted – whether its that iPhone 5 or even a heavy meal that you have.

Image

Dressing up 

Image

Accessories, pretty dresses and shoes, denim jackets. I mean, what’s not to love? I love looking nice and dressing up. Not to impress people, but I love feeling pretty.

Image

Who doesn’t love dressing up? It makes you look pretty and feel it, too. It changes you mood as well – just the right amount to make a difference.

Image

Family 

Image

Family. These are the people who are there by your side, people you can confide in. Yeah, sometimes you think you love your brother because you have to, but then you realise…that you actually truly love him.

Image

They’re always around and they help you and educate you and never, ever take them for granted.

Image

Friends

Image

Not the TV show. Well, yeah of course the TV show too.

But your friends are the people you can be yourself around. These are the people who never judge you and never push you away. Of course, with time you do lose some friends, but the ones that stick around become the most important people in your life.

Image

You can be completely crazy around these people – they reciprocate. You can be frustrated – the understand. Everything is okay around these people and they are the ones who make you happy, or even angry. But they’re the ones who matter.

I decided to make this week’s playlist: all the songs I have been obsessively listening to the past week or so.

I listen to a lot of different music styles, ranging from pop to pop punk to punk rock to rock and I even throw some country in there once in a while. I listen to the punk-rock and rock genres most, but this is a mix of everything!

I like to listen to varying genres because I can never decide on a favourite song as it always changes and it is always in a different genre!

  • Applause – Lady Gaga 
  • Mirrors – Justin Timberlake 
  • Miss Missing You – Fall Out Boy
  • The Voice Within – Christina Aguilera
  • Same Love – Macklemore and Ryan Lewis ft. Mary Lambert 
  • Get Lucky – Daft Punk

Being a major music person myself, I would have to say that one of my biggest inspirations for a long time now is Christina Aguilera.

She has the voice of an angel and her lyrics are so true and honest. She is truly an influence on my life, as she is for millions of other people all around the world.

Image

In my favourite songs like The Voice Within (which I am attempting to sing but failing miserably) and Beautiful (love the classics), she truly expresses her feelings and speaks to the listener in a way nobody else does.

She is definitely someone I look up to and someone I aspire to be.

It is possibly the most awaited holiday ever – summer is the season where your swimsuits come out, school is closed, you hold that lemonade in your hand and you chill and loosen up by the poolside or the ocean and take in your atmosphere. Not a care in the world about homework or a paper that is due. Ahhh, its such a marvelous feeling.

Here are some things that can make your summer even better.

1. Ice cream!

Image

On a summer day when the temperature hits 38°C, and it becomes difficult to stand the heat, this delicious treat is the perfect way to cool your body down.

2. Blueberries

Image

There scrumptious berries are flavourful and immensely appetizing by the handful. Have them with cream or bake them into a pie and you have yourself a heavenly dish.

3. Cheesecake

Image

This soft dessert makes a perfect summer dish; top it off with whipped cream, fruits, nuts or chocolate and it is even better.

4. The ocean

Image

Doing some water sports, riding the waves or even adding a dash of paddle boarding to your day can make it exciting. This is also an incredibly fun way to work those muscles, and it helps keep you fit.

Image

Even a simple walk along the shore can make you fresh; it helps you collect your thoughts and be with the peaceful ocean and the serene ambiance calms your body and mind.

Image

5. FESTIVALS!

Image

The world gets together every summer at the numerous music festivals that take place – in every part of the world. Dance and cheer for your favourite artists as they get together to take over summer. Come on, world. Bring it.
