A to Z challenge/ Bucket list (C) Colors

I’ve been thinking all day for the word starting with a C, and I was doing the laundry and I realized how much I love colors. It’s so obvious to me now… I painted my bathroom yellow (a shade of yellow), it was scary but fun! The topic of the day is how fashion affects my color choices.

Yellow

Makes me happy I love wearing it in the beginning of spring, when the sun is shining and I know I getting warmer. When I wear yellow, I’m always in a good mood, and it compliments my skin very well. I also love yellow handbags, it’s such a happy color!

Pink

Makes me feel pretty, when I want to feel girly in cute, I go for pink. I like pink accessories. My phone cover is fushia, my wallet is coral. I wear pink more during the day, I guess it’s normal. (Pink includes : fushia, salmon, coral etc..).

Black

I wear black when I feel down and I don’t wanna think about matching my clothes or I don’t want to be bothered. I wear it at night when I wanna feel sophisticated, it allows me to wear big jewelry without looking tacky.

White

I’m always scared to wear white, because I’m very clumsy. But it feels good to wear it when it’s hot, I wear white a lot in Haiti because of the weather and because I have someone who washes my clothes for me and she does it very well.

Purple

I wear purple whenever, I just love that color. I have a lot of purple T shirts it’s my go to color.

Brown

I hate brown clothes, but I love brown accessories. This winter I craved for brown leather boots, I also love brown handbags, or shoes. I tend to choose light brown over dark brown.

Beige and cream

Good color for capris and shorts. During the summer they’re fantastic to wear. Beige and cream leather accessories look classy and expensive.

Blue

I barely wear blue, it reminds me too much of  uniforms.

Red

I almost never wear red. Except for my red trench coat, I love it! I feel like a lady when I wear it.

 

What’s your favorite color? Why? 

AtoZ Challenge/ Bucket list (B) Books

 

IMG_20140401_161212

I had no idea I was gonna write about books for the letter B. But I went to the book store today, because it was beautiful outside and I love being surrounded by them.  I never buy anything over there, except for journals, I can’t help myself, I just love the idea of blank books. I’m young but I still can’t get used to E Books, I like the smell, the touch, the whole experience of reading a real book. I have read hundreds of books, and I don’t remember all of them, but some stayed in my mind because I could not stop reading before the end. Most of them are dark, because I love to read about other peoples struggles, I have an eclectic taste but I tend to go towards stories that are close to reality.

1- Harry Potter Series- J.K Rowling

2-The kite Runner and A Thousand Splendid suns- Khaled Hosseini

3- Married By Force- Leila

4-Sold: Story of Modern-day Slavery- Zana Muhsen 

5-Veronika decides to die – Paulo Coelho 

6- The Happiness Project- Gretchen Rubin 

7- And Then There Were None- Agatha Christie

 

After I read The Happiness  Project, I realized that I also enjoy reading people’s happy stories. I use to keep the “Happy” for fiction, but maybe it’s time for me to read more delightfully happy non-fiction. I highly recommend this book because it’s modern, light and it makes you want to feel happy!

 

A to z challenge (A)/ Bucket list- Animal

Of course I’m starting this challenge with the word ANIMAL! 

IMG_20140401_140117

I’m going to share with you lessons that I’ve learned from my favorite Animal, Jack!

1- Be resilient

When you fall on your face (he literally does), get back up and jump again! I don’t know how many times Jack has tried to jump with one of his toys (not all were given to him), twice his size usually he falls, but then he gets back up, tries another angle and jump again. Wouldn’t it be great if we acted like that in the face of failure?

2- Share your love 

Express affection, to the ones you love. Don’t be scare to make them feel special. There is no way to stay mad when Jack is jumping around because he’s happy to see you. Sharing your love with others can only have good repercussions.

3-Never refuse love

Never turn down acts of love. He’s always up for cuddling, when he gets tired he just goes away. But he always take a little bit of love from others.

4-Appreciate the small things in life 

Jack is an expert in that matter. It doesn’t take him much to be happy. A new gift, a trip to the garage to go take out the trash makes his day. We should appreciate more these little moments of joy.

5- Be brave 

Jack is a Shi Tzu, but he is not scared of big dogs. Sometimes I’m scared for him, but most of the time after showing his bravery, the big dogs befriend him. Jack think he can fly, he’s always jumping, for such a small dog you would think he’d be scared of falling, but he play on is strength and agility. Sometimes we should forget that we are small, be brave and take calculated risks.

BLOGGING FROM A TO Z CHALLENGE 2014/ Bucket list

APRIL-CALENDAR [2014]

For the month of April I will participate in the Blogging from A to Z challenge and complete one of my bucket list task at the same time ( #20 Take a picture for each letter of the alphabet). I don’t have a theme yet it will probably be on random words, as the days go by. So for the month I will write about a topic starting with each letter of the alphabet and take a picture that fits with the theme.

Bucket List # 86 Get a notebook and keep track of quotations I love

IMG_20140312_231657

My boyfriend gave me a new notebook he got at his job. He knows I love notebooks and journals. I decided to use this one to collect quotes. I have the 10 first pages completed, each page with a different color, it’s fun to do, and I just had to go to my ”quote” category on mt blog to find them :). I like it when I’m organized 🙂

 

 

Bucket list # 13 Complete a coloring book

Bucket list # 13 Complete a coloring book

Yesterday I went to the store and bought a coloring calendar. When I finish coloring all the pages, I will give it to my little niece to put in her room 🙂 . Coloring actually takes a lot of patience, but it’s fun 🙂 I’m glad I made that bucket list. 🙂

Bucket list #40 Discover some new podcasts to listen to

 

It’s been a while since I’ve listened to any podcast. I rather watch videos on Youtube, but for the sake of my Bucket list I’m gonna look some up. I’m gonna look for podcast that are 20 minutes or less. ( I find them on Itunes.) 

  1.  15 minutes of wellness : The name explains itself. I’m listening to the 1st episode. It’s about adopting a healthy lifestyle and loose weight. They give great advises, I didn’t like the voice of the host at first, but I like the energy of the guest, and I actually wanted to listen for more. So I recommend it. 
  2. The Savvy psychologist’s quick and dirty tips for better mental health: Again, pretty self explanatory. The first episode is how to ask for help. I really like how she gives scientific reason to act as she recommends. I recommend it, but there are not a lot of episodes.
  3. The lively show (oops 45 minutes): This one is about blogging and other aspects of life. Th host is very energetic. Since we are all bloggers, I think this one will interest me. It’s a 45 minutes show though, it might be god to listen while cooking(don’t burn yourselves!), or driving.
