Release Date: August 19, 2013 (US)
Classification: Drama, Romance
Actors: Anne Hathaway, Jim Sturgess

Words can’t express how in love I’m with this movie. The first time I saw One Day was back on 2011 when it was released in theaters; I was on date and the guy didn’t mind watching the movie. I liked the movie back then but after I read the book, which was very recent, I watched the movie (more than once) and absolutely fell in love with it. One Day is one those movies that I could watch over and over and over. Love love love.

Wonderful Wednesday: Bedroom and Restroom Decor Ideas

Hey Lovelies,

This Wonderful Wednesday holds a very special place in my heart because Egypt is finally freed from the cruel, barbaric Muslim Brotherhood Ruling. I am so happy for Egypt and this only makes me anticipate good things and a hopeful future for Egypt. Its true, the God is fair and good will always rule over the bad.

Moving on to the post, I decided to post some simple decor ideas captured straight from my own bedroom and restroom. I know some of you may think that I’m showing off but I’m only posting this because I really love all those pieces and I spent so much time and energy on them. I hope that it may inspire some of you to reinvent your bedroom or a part of your house that you’ve neglecting, cause we all know how our surrounding affect our mood and spirit.

I absolutely loved this little fruit bouquet. It was as delicious as it’s gorgeous. My best friend had it delivered to me as a late graduation gift. Also loved the lil vase it came in; it now sets very nicely on my dresser.This absolutely made my day ❤ ❤

Over the weekend me and my mom hung out at an outdoor plaza for mother-daughter bonding time. We went to Barnes & Nobles for a while, and then shopped/browsed the stores for fun. After our long, fun day we got hungry and I suggested we go to CPK. My mom LOVED this Spicy Chipotle Chicken pizza, and that is really impressive cause my mom is a REAL picky eater. She thought the cheese was excellent and the pan couldn’t be any better, and she loved the toppings.

If you got a sweet tooth, then the Belgian Chocolate Soufflé Cake is a must-eat at CPK. Can’t describe it cause words won’t do it any justice. Try it for yourself ASAP!
P.s. They also serve it with ice-cream ❤

Music Monday: Birdy by Birdy (2011)

birdy-extralarge_1329849215292Classification: Folk, Indie, Female Vocalist, Singer-Sonwriter, Piano, British
Release Date: November 4, 2011

Haunting, touching, and beautiful are adjectives that come to mind when describing fifteen years old British singer Birdy’s first debut, studio album, Birdy. I enjoyed the album very much and I know that It will become one of those albums that I will always listen to and appreciate. At first I didn’t have a strong impression about the album since my ears had to adjust to take in something so beautiful and pure. So, if you’re experiencing the same reaction, I would suggest listening to the album a few times before making your verdict.
Birdy’s voice is full of pain, beauty, and determination and the fact that she’s only fifteen years old makes her voice even real special. Birdy will touch your soul and that’s why I feel like it’s more of a Winter-y album, that goes better with hot coffee and rainy days.
The entire album is a collection of songs covered, or rather reinvented by Birdy, as she totally transforms each song (for the better imo) and makes it her own.
Give it a listen, you won’t be disappointed.

Favorite Songs:

. 1901: Sounds like sparkling water, river’s stream, and ocean waves.
. Young Blood: “Fall back in love eventually”.
. People Help the People: beautiful and full of soul. “If you’re home-sick, give your hand, and I’ll hold it”.
.White Winter Hymnal: Angelic, and perfect for Winter!

P.s. Sorry this was supposed to be posted yesterday. lol
