Time to decorate

Christmas is coming and if there is something more exciting than Halloween for me it’s definitely christmas. I sometimes feel bad because I’m not even catholic (my family is though) but I think we can safely say that although christmas is indeed the birth of Jesus Christ, it’s also about getting together with your loved ones. For me is about the feeling. Knowing that you have to prepare for a big meal with your family, buying gifts for them. The process of it is just lovely to me. The decorations and putting your christmas tree. Somehow, even though it’s the end of the year and the finals usually kill me I seem to be more happy, or at least I try to be more happy. Christmas movies! We can hear to christmas songs! Which I don’t know why but they’re amazing and there are so many and in lots of versions with different styles and  voices.

Anyway, I was planning to do a DIY of some decorations I’ve been doing. Since I moved out to my own apartment I have to control myself for transforming my house into Santa’s village. I like going big on decorations. But the thing is, this DIY’s were really not something I made up but something I copied from pinterest. So instead I’m just going to show you two of  them which are really easy to do!

Paper stars!

The first one it’s kind of silly and simple. I just needed

  • red paper
  • green paper
  • brown paper
  • twine
  • scissors
  • glue gun (which is totally up to you because there are other ways of pasting the stars to the twine)

So what I did here is print a star that I found on google because I really don’t know how to make a star.

After cutting them, something like this was the result.

I then pasted the stars to the twine…

and tada! Simple, easy and cute.

The second one required a little bit more of effort, meaning, while walking the dog I collected some twigs, so…

Rustic stars!

  • twigs
  • twine
  • glue gun
  • some paint if you feel like painting the stars.

You first make the form to see how are you going to glue it

glue gun power and…

ready!

Pretty simple DIY that I took from pinterest. I like rustic and Scandinavian decorations so I love searching those tags.

See ya!

A little bit of love

Hi! So if you read my blog you might notice… or not, that I never talk about relationships here. It’s not like I’m keeping this part of my life to myself but the fact that there is no such thing to talk about. I never had a relationship. If I had, believe me, this blog would be the first thing to be updated.

This never stops me from being hopelessly romantic. Which I hate. Because I lead to believe that the reason I am a romantic is that I want a romantic relationship myself… which, surprisingly I don’t. I always reckon there are moments where I think that maybe having someone wouldn’t be that bad but for me, it just seems impossible. Not for being insecure and thinking that nobody would waste their time on me but because I think I’m very reclusive. I just don’t put myself out there, not even with friendship which might explain why I struggle to keep up with those.

Anyway, this is not a post about my love life. I just wanted to explain to you that I am a hopelessly romantic girl who enjoys cheesy and cliché romantic comedies. And by mentioning that I will recommend you two of those I watched early this week that are not that well-known for you to have in consideration. I enjoyed and liked them a lot. All thanks to Netflix of course.

Maybe you already know them but in the romantic comedy genre I never noticed them until now, which for me makes them not that well-known.

  • One Small Hitch (2013)

one-small-hitch-1

“On a flight home to Chicago for a family wedding, childhood friends Josh and Molly innocently agree to fake a wedding engagement to make Josh’s dying father happy. Things quickly get out of hand with their two boisterous families, and a series of events causes them to pretend to be a couple and start planning a phony wedding.” – IMDB

This movie is a cliché. I have read at least a thousand fanfictions with this storyline. Guy and girl pretend to be engaged, end up falling for each other. Nothing new. I, of course loved it and decided to share it with you because besides being really banal it was really enchanting, enjoyable and entertaining. I found myself getting caught up with the feelings in the movie. I don’t know if it makes sense but do you know when you watch a movie and the characters just sort of are there and you enjoy the movie but as soon as the movie ends you can simply let go of them. This was not the case. After finishing it I spent a good time staring at the ceiling smiling to myself. Besides, I was hoping it would be a short movie, kind of hallmark like, it turned out to be a little bit longer but not dense.

  • Un peu, beaucoup, aveuglément! (2015)

“He is a dedicated workaholic who lives and breathes his work. He prefers nothing more than silence. She is an accomplished pianist working on her big-break concert. To her, music and sound is everything. Separated only by a wall, things get interesting.” – IMDB

Now this french little gem it’s pretty amazing and nothing like I ever saw before. Maybe once in an Argentinian movie but I don’t remember enough to say this is an ordinary used story. It was actually pretty adorable and funny. I don’t know what more to say but the fact that this movie, also left me with a nice feeling inside. It’s the kind of movie I would find on tv on a sunday afternoon while watching tv with my grandparents and leave it til the end while commenting “what a nice movie”… we do that with my grandparents. There are certain movies that definitely stay in my memory as the sunday movies to watch with family.

So yeah, I saw this two movies this week and I thought they were worthy of sharing them in this blog. If you are a romantic person like me or a “I enjoy cute and funny movies” kind of person, these are definitely your choice.

See ya!

I’m here!

Long time no read! It’s been awhile since my last post and I have the feeling that as soon as I go back to blogging I will have to stop again because of my finals.

However I have not been one for planning ahead so I’m just going to go with it and see how it goes, I have a lot to post about!

But first and most important. I have recently started living in my own apartment! Huge step for a 21 years old with a “I never want to grow up” syndrome. I’m enjoying it although I don’t get to be alone that much, as I promised to my grandparents I go everyday to have lunch to their house. I’m not complaining though! I don’t have to spend that much money on food since I don’t eat in my house.

The most difficult thing for me to adjust where my sleeping hours (still are)  but I think it’s not really related to moving out. The thing is that since I started living in this apartment I haven’t been managing the best sleeping agenda. I go to sleep around five and I wake up around 2 because as I finished all my classes, I don’t have to wake up early. Living with people made sure that didn’t happen, well, I’d still go to sleep at 5AM but at least I wouldn’t wake up so late.

I just hope that now that I have to start studying for my finals I can be able to sleep well and early. I want to be able to enjoy the mornings again! Anyway, this was just an update post to tell you guys why I haven’t been online so much. Even though I didn’t have that much things to move to this apartment I still had to take all my books, my clothes and stuff with me. I had to go and buy things for the kitchen, a table, a bed, Wi-Fi! You know, the essentials.

We will read each other soon, like I told you before, I have a lot to post!

PS: It’s christmas season! (I’m sorry but since the moment we arrive to November 1st I started thinking about christmas) I already updated the looks of my blog to match with the festivity, I LOVE CHRISTMAS!

 

My favorites for Halloween!

When you want to make a big deal of Halloween but in your country is no big deal at all what’s left for someone to do, besides finding a club that benefits from people dying to dress up for the 31th, is watch movies. Specially if you’re not big on going to parties like me.

Even though I went to a Halloween party this weekend with my friends dressed as Velma from Scooby Doo (we did group costume) I have to admit that I wish something else could be done to make the evening more spooky. So of course today, Halloween day, I’m going to try to do a marathon of my favorite things to watch at this time of the year before my christmas hype starts. Let’s get going!

  • Hocus Pocus (1993)

hocus-pocus-wp

This is a classic. My favorite Halloween movie is obviously a Disney one. In fact I think I got into the Halloween culture because of Disney. When I was young I used to watch Disney Channel a lot and during October the Halloween specials would be on and I think that’s how I got my spooky on. Anyway witches are always a good way to go and if you add  a talking black cat who turns out to be a cute ghost and the fact that it was directed by Kenny Ortega: Perfect.

  • Psycho (1960)

    psycho-wp

This is probably the only horror movie I can watch. To be honest I’m not big on scary movies so you will probably see a lot of kids/family stuff here. However I always loved Psycho. I don’t know what’s about it but it doesn’t scare me at all and at the same time it does. The fact that it’s a black and white classic takes away the scariness  part for me but also the fact that Norman is not a supernatural creature but a real human being with real mental issues makes the thing even more creepy because it’s more realistic, it’s something that could actually happen which I think is more scarier that whatever movie with ghosts or demons could show you. I also think my love for this movie grew a lot after watching Bates Motel (the tv show) It’s honestly so good!

  • The Legend of Sleepy Hollow (1949)

sleepy-hollow-wp

Somehow I believe it’s not Halloween if I haven’t watch this Disney short about the headless horseman. It’s a classic and a must for me at this time of the year. I remember I used to have it on VHS with a compilation of other Disney spooky short films. This one particularly used to scare me to death when I was little, something about a dude without a head totally put me off haha.

  • Dracula (1992)

dracula

I remember I was always so scared of watching this movie because of Gary Oldman’s old look, with the white wig. At the same time it was so funny to see him with the long red cape walking through the walls, I remember the scenes when Jonathan Harker was in Dracula’s castle and they still make me laugh. Anyway Dracula is a horror classic. One of the main scary creatures and I kind of like this version of Bram Stocker’s novel.

  • The Craft (1996)

the-craft-3

I remember I watched The Craft for the first time one Halloween. It was scary. Maybe I get scared easily but I kind of got creeped out by Nancy. Plus the movie gave me so many inspirational looks. Those 90’s outfits were amazing!

  • Beetlejuice (1988)

beetlejuice wp.jpg

Such a weird movie, I used to be obsessed with it because the receptionist had a Miss Argentina tag. I also think it’s perfect to get in the Halloween mood. I heard there’s going to be a second one!

  • The Addams Family (1991)

the-addams

It’s not Halloween without my favorite spooky family!! I was a big fan of the show I remember I used to watch it on Nick At Night!

  • Halloweentown (1998)

halloweentown

A Disney classic I always loved to watch on tv. Because of this movie I began to wish to be a witch too.

  • The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993)

the nigthmare before christmas.png

Last but not least I think this one is a must. I love to watch it exactly on Halloween because it’s a great transition movie from october and Halloween to november/december and Christmas. The music is A+, I have it playing all of october.

I know there are a lot more creepy and spooky movies to watch for Halloween so if you watch others tell me about it in the comments if you feel like it! I actually have a larger list on my movies but I think these ones are the ones I always get around watching.

I hope you had a great Halloween! See ya!
