You’re A Fighter

Yes, you read that right. You’re a fighter, and don’t you ever forget it. Life may be tough right now but you’ll get there. You’ll make it, I promise. I believe you can do it. You have what it takes. I see it in you – you have the power to do whatever you imagine. You’re smart enough, pretty enough, tough enough to make it through.

God gives his toughest battles to his strongest soldiers. Hang in there. Don’t give up now. Not quite yet. Just a little bit longer. Just a little bit harder. You’re getting there. You’re on your way to victory. You don’t always need a clear-cut plan, a laid out map to tell you exactly which way to go. Sometimes you need to just trust your instincts and keep going – see what happens. You might even surprise yourself.

Create a vision for your life. Do something you love. Do something that makes you want to jump out of bed every morning. This fight is worth it, and so are you. These battle scars are only making you stronger. Do whatever it takes to see your dreams through.

The walls that you see that separate you from your dreams are meant to see how badly you want to achieve this. They’re not meant for you. They’re meant for the other people who don’t want it badly enough.

It’s a revolution – the time has come for you to win. Don’t give up now when victory’s so close. You can beat this. I see the fighter in you, dying to break out. Breathe, take a break. Get back at it. Don’t lose sight of the finish line, you’re so close.

Don’t let it get you down, if you don’t make it the first time. You have your whole life ahead of you to prove yourself, so stop beating yourself up. Promise me you’ll smile today. Promise?

Stay strong,

Barcelona Win Over Almeria

Barcelona’s 4-1 win over Almeria at Camp Nou yesterday made sure it kept the pressure on for Real Madrid. As much as I was hoping for this La Liga to entail a clear victory for my favourite team, it seems that Barcelona’s emphatic win yesterday has made for an inevitable El Classico final eventually. Not that I mind that.

Real Madrid, however remains top of the table with 64 points, having won 20 out of the 26 total games played and losing only 2. Barcelona, a close runner-up, has 63 points.

Alexis Sanchez, and Leo Messi made for a great first-half with 2 goals in the bag within the first 25 minutes. Even though Trujillo of Ameria pulled back his team with a 2-1 before half-time, things only went downhill from there for the team. Puyol and Xavi scored in the fag end of the second-half and buried the competition well and proper.

Home-ground advantage or not, it was a match well-played and was thoroughly enjoying to watch. I can tell this La Liga final is going to be a show of fabulous football. Until next time!

Stay amazing!

How I Became A Sherlockian

OK guys, it’s confession time. I can’t keep all these feels in me anymore. I’ve got to let it all out and I’m going to do it no matter how hard or long it is. This is the story of my absolute and complete, irrevocable and total obsession with Sherlock. (Oh and for those of you who don’t watch BBC’s Sherlock, I just, I have nothing to say to you…Go and get your arse off that chair and watch it…NOW!) Oh, and P.S. this is me going on full-on fangirl mode, so unless you’re ready for that, I strongly suggest you stop reading at this point. Like, now.


Recently (and by recently I mean from September 2013) I started watching this modern rendition of A.C. Doyle’s Holmes (which I LOVED reading as a teenager) and absolutely fell in love. I cannot even begin to describe the number of hours I should’ve been studying for my exams or doing something infinitely more important but was watching/fangirling over Sherlock instead. And the worst (or best, if you take it my way) part is, I’m not even sorry. I regret nothing.


 First of all, cheers to Moffat and Gatiss for making this series so mind-blowingly amazing and heart-stoppingly interesting. Oh, and kudos for hiring the sexiest guy on the planet (with a voice so deep and creamy and full-on Alan Rickman-y that it takes your breath away) as Sherlock – Benedict Cumberbatch. And of course, the always lovely Martin Freeman who plays Dr. John Watson.


And of course, which fangirling session is truly complete without describing in loving detail, my OTP (excluding CumberChris or Denedict – which is me and Benedict Cumberbatch :3 ) which is Johnlock (John and Sherlock) and Sherlolly (Sherlock and Molly Hooper). Sometimes, I end up watching Sherlock curled up in an intense ball of feels shipping my OTP so hard that I start to tear up. No, I don’t need medical attention. It’s just another day in the life of a fangirl.


For those of you who are still reading this, this means you’re a Cumberbitch (fans of Cumberbatch) or Sherlockian and thus, share my feels. This also means that you must be a pretty hardcore fan, because if you’re not, you must not have watched the Reichenbach Fall and the AGES of waiting before they explained how Sherlock survived the fall. And if you didn’t stop reading, because here come the spoilers.


I have a love-hate relationship with Moffat and Gatiss for making us wait so long (till Jan 1, 2014) for Season 3. But, as usual, the explanation of the fall, Johnlock’s reunion and everything in between was just fantastic. And the way Gatiss incorporated every single OTP in our fandom in that one episode? Wow. It’s like he just ransacked the tumblr of every Sherlockian. Oh and of course, Sherlock’s best man speech at John and Mary’s wedding (that successfully forever shattered the Johnlock shippers) brought me to tears (with laughter and feels – oh, the bromance). I still have my Sherlolly ship left, though (though at this point, I think I’m going to sink with this ship as well, seeing as how Molly was recently engaged).


Oh and you have plenty of reason to love Benedict even if you’re a trekky (Star Trek fan). He played the badass ‘Khan’ in Star Trek Into Darkness in 2013, and boy was he good. Goes to show you how rightful I am in this love and admiration of him – he can play a badass just as well as a ‘on the side of the angels‘ character (if you know what I mean – and you will, if you’re a Sherlockian).


OK, I think this is a logical stopping point because I’m bursting with feels just writing about this and I better leave before the hyperventilation starts. More later, guys!

Stay beautiful,

Getting Organised

School is starting up again and there’s so much stuff to do – new books, binders and papers, new stationary and so many activities and tests. Keeping everything going and being on the top of your game isn’t easy. Its that time of year where you’ve gotta start getting it all together again – get organised for the new year. All these muddled up schedules and to- do lists arent cutting it. If you’re anything like me, you’re a super control freak and organising and scheduling everyday down to the minute is essential for your peace of mind.

Get a planner – its the best way to saty orgaised. Doctors appointments, tests, soccer practise, parties – you can jot it all down here and remember everything this way. This is a valuable tool for every student so is your school doesn’t give you planners (mine does), go out and get one, its extremely helpful, specially if you’re into a lot of stuff. Make lists and plan it all out neatly. Its not a waste of time. Seriously.

School Supplies 3

Have a particular place like a file or folder to put in worksheets, assignments and papers from every class. Don’t just stuff it in your textbook (trust me, I know). It doesnt work. You’ll just end up forgetting about it. Get a file organiser for those handouts and separate notebooks for each subject – NOT just one gigantic book for all of them. It isnt neat or easy to leaf through.


Another important thing is to clean up your school satchel and locker. It doesnt do for it to have old handouts, old folders, broken pencils and scraps of paper and chewing gum wrappers. Clear it all out and stack all your stuff neatly. Its a sure shot way not to forget things. Also, assigning a specific place in your house (preferrably your room) which is well-lit and quiet to study and do homework is a must. You don’t want your little brother’s friends or your sister’s head-banging music to disturb you. So find a quiet place to work, learn and organise your thoughts and believe me, you’ll start aceing all those tests.


Also, its important that you set aside separate slots of time for everything – and make sure you’re being realistic! Make a schedule that you think you can deal with and stick to it. Don’t put 4 hour studying slots and then a rush-off to soccer practise, becuase we all know you’re only fooling yourself there. Give yourself enough breaks (not too many) and set realistic goals.

Last of all, make sure to have fun! High school (or just school) is one of the most memorable time in your life – make friends, make memories and make your dreams come true.

Fashion This Week : Jumpsuits

Make some space in your closets, because jumpsuits and playsuits are making a big spash this season. They look fabulous AND feel it, so go ahead and experiment.


ASOS Zip Front Jumpsuit with Stap Detail


I, myself, have worn jumpsuits in the past, but if you’re new to them, make sure to pair it with a jacket or blazer to make the look more subtle.


Jerma Crossover Tailored Jumpsuit In Black

A definite no-no (at least in my case) when it comes to jumpsuits is making sure you don’t wear a halter one unless you have appealing shoulders (I don’t).


ASOS Jumpsuit With Halter in Monochrome

Going for a layered or loose jumpsuit in a plain colour is a good choice; don’t be afraid to make a few mistakes.


ASOS Simple Jumpsuit with Long Sleeves

If its still warm where you are (it isnt here), you can go for a teaser playsuitV-neckline with a belt at the waist, sequins, they’re all good for the perfect finish.


ASOS Snake Hot Pant Slash Front Playsuit

I’ve given the links to all the pictures in their description (below the picture), if you’re interested in looking them up.

Stay beautiful!
