1. One show you would love to see on Netflix that isn’t there?

I’m such a Soap Opera fan that I will have to pick General Hospital. I blame my aunt and grandmother for getting me into watching Soap Operas that I so wish Netflix would put the entire show starting from Episode 1 onto Netflix so I could just go back and watch an episode every time they make a reference to something someone did in the past.

GH-ABC

2. One song you wish they would play more on the radio?

I listen to the radio and also my iPod a lot so I will have to say I wish they played Tori Kelly on the radio. Her songs aren’t on the radio but she’s amazing and she so deserves for more people to hear her music.

3. Your favorite song to sing loudly in the car?

I love singing Ariana Grande’s- Break Free

This is the part when I say I don’t want ya
I’m stronger than I’ve been before
This is the part when I break free
‘Cause I can’t resist it no more

4. What movie/tv show do you quote the most?

I watch so much TV Shows that I never really quote any of the ones I love on a daily basis but my favorite quote is from The Carrie Diaries.

“Love is spiritual. It’s about self-sacrifice and commitment. And discipline. You cannot have true love without discipline and respect. When you lose the respect of your spouse, you’ve lost everything.”-Candace Bushnell (The Carrie Diaries)

5. One silly thing you do daily

The one silly thing I do everyday is play Stampede Run on my iPhone.

Bye Bye February

Today is the last day of February. I can’t believe this month is almost over. I’m not even complaining that February went by too fast because this month was amazing besides all those stupid snow storms. My February was memorable I went to my first hockey game and had some amazing box seats too. I also made the decision to go back to school and ‘m proud to say I’m officially a Public Relations student at California Baptist University. I finally made up my mind and I’m attending my dream school too. February was also awesome because I was able to go to the Dermatologist thanks to finally getting my own health insurance (thanks Obamacare) and I was able to finally get a diagnosis for a problem I was having with my skin and since then my skin is doing so much better.February was also amazing because I reconnected with my father so that’s awesome but he’s still annoying as ever. Lastly February was amazing because of al the amazing NEW MUSIC I discovered. Thank You so much February for being such an amazing and blessed month but March I am so ready for you but in the meantime guys I want you to check out my Bye Bye February Playlist. Love you xx♥

Pia Mia-The Gift (EP)

Pia is such a talented up and coming new talent in the industry. I first discovered her from Kylie and Kendall Jenner when they posted a video of her singing for Drake at their family house. I’ve been hooked ever since and you should be too. My favorite song on the EP is “Lost & Found”

Broods-Bridges

I’ve had this song on my iPhone for a while and it came up on shuffle last week and I simply can’t have enough of this track. Apparently Broods is a duo from New Zealand and I happened to download Bridges because it was a featured free song on iTunes on week. I’m happy I downloaded this song and thank God for shuffle lol.

Daniella Mason- All I Want 

I discovered Daniella after Demi Lovato tweeted out her support for Daniella on Twitter. When I listened to the snippet of this song on iTunes  it instantly captivated me and I was literally listening to this song on repeat everyday in my car. I love when music has that effect on you, it makes the listening process that much more intimate. All I Want is definitely one of my favorite songs for the year at the moment.

Ellie Goulding-Beating Heart

Ellie Goulding has grown on me as an artist. When she first bursted out on the American Pop charts I hated her voice but now her voice is just so amazing. Her voice is just so peaceful and I could listen to her all day. I love her new song for Divergent and I’m so happy that she’s apart of this amazing movie soundtrack.

Little Mix-Good Enough

These girls have totally outdone themselves on this album. I would’ve never though in a million years that I would have some of their songs on my music library. I just love listening to the ballads on their new album “Salute” especially Good Enough. Ahh the emotion, the vulnerability, the raw talent is just something I love when listening to music and Little Mix doesn’t disappoint.

Flashback Friday

flashfridays

Who remembers their first cellphone? Well I sure do and let me tell you it was one of the happiest days of my life back then. I got my first cell phone right after I moved back to the US from Trinidad. My dad bought me the LG C1300 from Cingular that was before ATT bought the company and made major come back. Anyway I loved this little flip phone and I was so happy I finally had a phone of my own. I remember that my dad would constantly take my phone away because I texted way to much and he refused to buy a 5$ a month texting plan so I found myself a lot of times without a phone. I remember one time I hid the cell phone bill just so he wouldn’t see that I texted more than I should have. I was such a sneaky little teen growing up. My second phone was the Nokia 6085. I was so excited to get this phone because it had a camera. This phone was a huge upgrade compared to the LG. I was like bursting with excitement because I could finally take pictures with my phone and send text messages and stuff. O and btw my dad finally gave into the 5$ texting plan when I got the Nokia. I could have finally texted my friends and I felt so cool lol!!! Haha I’m such a dork lol! I really loved this phone but eventually it showed its true colors and I was stuck with a problematic phone for a couple of months. By my junior year in high school 2008-2009, cell phones got like a major upgrade everyone was coming out with touch screen phones and I wanted one. I knew I couldn’t have gotten the iPhone so I saved my money from my little babysitting job from my church and also a friend and bought the Samsung Eternity A87. I loved this phone and it was so worth the 100$ I saved. I was over the moon when I got this phone because I finally had a cool phone. This phone had it all touch screen, a browser,amazing games, mobile TV, apps,etc. I was in heaven and with my newly unlimited texting plan I was always on this phone. Sadly I didn’t have a data plan but I would still go on Facebook with this phone and use the data at a minimal each month. I thought this phone was hot. I literally felt that I was better than people because I had this touch screen phone that cost 100$. This phone took me through junior and senior year but then the touch screen failed on me so I was stuck with a stupid replacement phone which sucked. Since I was due for an upgrade I had to get this secondhand HTC 5800 and I hated it. This phone was so big and chunky but I had to deal with it for four months until i upgraded up the Blackberry Curve. This was a cute little phone that I got for .99cents lol. ATT had some banging deals on these Blackberries lol and I just had to get one. Now this was a major upgrade. I had a data plan on this phone so I got to really enjoy all the features of this phone and I would also order a new case for it like every month. This was one of my favorite phones don’t get me wrong I love the iPhone but the Blackberry was durable and long lasting. The only reason I upgraded was because this company soon started to decline and the updates were becoming so irrelevant that I gave up my blackberry and got the iPhone 4S, which I still have today well the 5s now. I had a good history with my phones back in the day. I remember the time when the fanciest phones were the Motorola Razr, that was like the number 1 phone on my wish list. I swear I always wanted one of those Nokia phones that everyone had, it was just a plain phone no flip or touch screen. Now you can’t even find those anymore. It’s crazy how times have changed and phones got such huge upgrades and makeovers. Now every phone is touchscreen or a smart phone. You hardly see phones anymore with a physical number pad or qwerty keyboard. A lot sure has changed.
