I Wanna Be Like Wonder Woman

Image
I never followed the DC universe, until now. There was only one movie worthy of making me want to crawl out from my little rock and glue my eyes to what was happening.

And that movie, was Wonder Woman. 

There have been many movies out there where women are strong and independent before this one came out. But I feel like Wonder Woman brings back the media's attention about the importance of having more roles for women in the film industry like this. Seriously, this is what I call an influential movie; I would rather see little girls and teens of today's generation be inspired by Diana instead of....well.....Ana Steele or Bella Swan. So here, I'm going to be sharing my thoughts about the movie.


I've always loved superhero movies, but whenever we had a women kicking ass in them, those were always minor roles, until now. Diana lives in a secluded island of female warriors created by Zeus to protect the world from the threat of the God of War, Ares. Until the events of Worl…

I've kept everyone in the dark about this (unless you follow me on Instagram). Makeup is all about expressing yourself, and once I got more into that scene, I never realized there were so many unique brands out there. Some of them were meant for different types of women: Some could be for the very elegant like Lancome, some that are internationally inclusive like Fenty Beauty, some for those who like cuteness like Too Faced, and then there's some for those who cherish their individuality like Urban Decay.

I then discovered an indie brand called Sugarpill when watching some tutorial videos. MUA's in those vids were using their own custom palettes made from them. A custom eyeshadow palette is like a dream, and the bonus was that Sugarpill had the type of cuteness to it that I liked: hearts, pink, and even medical themed! We're talking lipsticks that look like capsules and a heart-shaped logo with a cross in the center. How adorable is that if you're looking to become…

Game of Thrones Season 7 - The Best and Worst

Image
The follow article contains spoilers, please read at your own discretion!

Well, I made it through another Game of Thrones season, and I felt like it was too short you know? But since we're nearing the epic conclusion and there aren't many characters left alive, then it's no wonder.

I remember season 6 had so many great moments, I was unable to pick anything that was considered bad. But not this year: there has been a mix of times where I was either yay or nay while sitting on the couch with a snack and my family.

So, it wasn't easy to choose, as usual, but I love to do this, so I try to pick. The best and worst moments of every GOT season are different for everyone, it all depends on who you got the back of, so this is what mine are.

Shall we begin? Let's start with the best moments, and lucky for me, the good outweighs the bad:

1. Arya exterminates the remains of House Frey



Right from the beginning of the season, we know that shit is going to go down. Many of us we…

To Live One More Day

I swear, these dreams sneak up on me, and Sabaton seems to be the band I dream about the most when band dreams happen.

I stayed up late last night playing the demo of PvZ GW2 on my newly created Origin account, and I swear that must be what's taken up a lot of space on my C drive, I'll have to be careful. I'm hard at work in replacing the majority of my social media activity (especially Facebook) with writing, video games, and other hobbies. The less drama and politics, the better. Instagram isn't that bad, but there's still the matter of unicorns due to some cosmetic pages I follow, and it's becoming a pain. I'll have to crawl under my rock this week for certain reasons I will not mention.

I read another chapter of my Wonder Woman novel before falling asleep and I've been thinking about Sabaton ever since I woke up from that dream, even during the walk on Burlington beach with my mom this morning. It's like my brain is telling me "Time to thin…

Demon's Symphony Dancing in a Thunder Fire - Music of September 2017

Image
Time for another monthly music post! It honestly feels last minute that I'm writing about this because the month has been quite chaotic despite the light course load, but I can only imagine how worse it would be if I was taking this semester what I already passed last year.

But enough of that, it's better to write things here to put my mind off of the stressful world. This month's songs feel like the opposite of August: they're about bigger events that September had to offer, along with a few odd ones out that were just stuff in my head, so shall we?

5. Within Temptation - A Demon's Fate



When I first discovered the band's album The Unforgiving, it was the song Where Is The Edge that was my jam, and now, this one is. I feel like this is the darkest and most epic song on the album and it's always the fast melody that gets me, but what gets me even more than that part is the bridge where it slows down with Sharon's voice in the background, and the riffs wit…

Precious Metal

I consider myself an independent woman. If I want something in life, I go and I get it myself. I do like it when I receive gifts of things that I want, but if I want something, I will certainly buy it myself instead of waiting for someone to gift it to me.

There are many things in life that are often considered something that you would gift to someone you love. I'm not saying no one ever gives me things, I do receive wonderful gifts from my family and I always give them something in return. But, if there's any time other than Christmas when I see something I want, I decide I don't need anyone's help to get it.
Jewelry is a common example of this. I love my jewelry, even if most of it is costume. Yes, I have some precious metal and would like some more, but only if I can afford it, I don't wait around to have it gifted to me. I'm always treating myself to something such as an event or thing every month. 
In 2015, I was buying a lot of charms for my Pandora brace…

Symphony in a Hurricane

Image
Another concert has come and gone and they happen so fast. But I'm happy to tell you that this one was worth waiting for.

Megadeth and the Scorpions rocked the hell out of that night and nothing like going there dressed up like a thrasher.


We got there so early, the gates to the venue hadn't opened yet. I was starving and as soon as they let us in, I bolted for Pizza Pizza. I would have got in line for the merchandise stand but it was crazy. Then again, I don't need anything at these concerts other than a fun night out. Going to concerts feels so much more relieving when I'm busy with life as everyone needs a break.

I got a lot of compliments for the vest, and was even happier when I saw people wearing band shirts of some of the bands I had patches of. 
Coincidentally, every time I go to this venue, I'm always moving closer to the stage per gig. This time, we were on the floor and we stood against the railing by the platform that thrust out, so that counts as front…

I must write quickly, so maybe consider this a little update.

First, I must give myself a pat on the back for not spending so much money this month. Today marks only the second package I received from an online order. I kind of owe it to school for distracting me from shopping so much. What can I say, this is a sacrifice I am willing to make, in order to get good grades.

In case you're wondering, the first package was the second half of my Fenty Beauty splurge from Sephora (the other half I bought in-store), with that being said, that splurge made me hit Rouge status and now I've decided that I definitely have enough this time. Wish me luck in trying to only buy what has to be replenished for the next several months!

Before I go out tonight to swing to the symphony of destruction and rock like a hurricane, I'll just share a little haul from Amazon that came in this afternoon!

When I was feeling stressed with some of my work, my parents said I should go buy something online…

Master Org's Whiteout

Last night's dream gave me some nostalgia. It made me wish that I went deeper into the franchise that it centers around. My brother always wanted to watch more of it, and I always showed such little interest.

After that dream, I wish I could go back in time and tell my child self to watch more Power Rangers. There are so many different series and the only one I had seen the most of was Time Force I think. I saw one episode of Wild Force and that's it, but I still know the episode like the back of my hand.

I've got to give some praise to series like these. The action doesn't look so CGI; but I wonder now, how are the effects done when a villain grows to a huge size and then the rangers create a giant robot to fight it? (what are they called.....oh yeah, Megazords). The villains to me look like they're all costumes rather than made through wet suits and all computer animated.

See how my small amount of knowledge I have of what I did watch comes back to me after a dre…

Badges of Honour

I didn't want to share this at first out of the fear that I would be bombarded by the cult following of who is responsible for the incident.

But, I am an honest person and it now feels like it is my duty to share what I have experienced. I've lost friends and followers in the last 24 hours of sharing this on Facebook. I may lose more once it is shared here. People have told me I got what I deserved because I was the rude and criticizing one. They've also told me that I don't know the culprit personally and therefore it was stupid for me to make a big deal out of this.

No, that is not what happened, and it is only fair that I spread the word of the true story. This could raise awareness of the fact we may like someone famous, but then we might discover their true colours and realize what a jerk they are. Generally, I always try to prevent any personal values or political views from interfering with me liking something or someone, especially political, but this was a per…
