Monthly Favorites – October 2016

october-2016-monthly-favorites

How are we already at the end of October?!?!?  My birthday is in less than a month, and I am so not ready to be thirty-two yet.  I wish that there was a way to stop having birthdays once you reach a certain age.  

Anyway, let’s get on to the things that I have loved from this past month.  This first thing I have loved this month is a song by Shawn Mendes call “Stitches.”  I heard this song on Pandora for the first time this month, and I have it on repeat most of the month.  Here is the music video in case you haven’t heard it before.


I have also been loving the song “Rise” by Katy Perry.  The first time I listened to this song it was a cover of the song Super Fruit.  I will have the cover of it that I loved, and I will also include the video of Katy Perry as well in case you haven’t seen either of them.

 

 

I also have been loving these new Mentos that I found this month.  The only place I have been able to find them is at a gas station that I pass on my way to work in the mornings.  They remind me of Milk Duds, but they don’t stick to my teeth like Milk Duds do.

I have also been a huge fan of these freezer meals that I have gotten from the store they are called Evol.  I love them because they have so many different choices.  I had one that was vegan and I had another one that is gluten free.  The boxes are all marked with what they are and they are so good.  They are a little bit more expensive, but I don’t mind spending more on lunch items that are vegan and gluten free.  Here is a picture of one if you are interested in seeing if your grocery store carries them.

The last thing I have been loving this month is the TV show “The First 48”.  I have talked about this show in the past because it is a show I have been watching for years and I am sure I will keep watching it for years to come.  I love watching as the detectives investigate and solve murders.  It is something that has always interested me, and I am sure that it always will.  It is on A&E in case you want to check it out.

Those are just a few things that I have loved this month.  What have you enjoyed this month?

A Few Of My Favorite Songs

A Few Of My Favorite Songs

I haven’t written about music that I love for quite a long time, and I wanted to list a few songs that I am loving.  I used to post songs I loved on Mondays and if you wish to check those posts out you can click here to see them.  Let’s get on to a few of the songs that I am currently loving.

 If you click on the title of the song, it will take you to the video on YouTube that you can watch.

  1. See You Again ft. Charlie Puth by Wiz Khalifa.  I loved this song since I first heard it.  I wasn’t a huge fan of the movie, but I do love this song, and it is one of the ones that I put on repeat as I drive home from work.
  2. Love Yourself by Justin Bieber.  I just started listening to this song last week because I don’t follow the popular music anymore, so I never hear about songs until they are older.  I can’t help but sing along with the song, and it makes me wonder what else I have missed.
  3. Time Of Our Lives by Pitbull & Ne-Yo. This song is one that I loved when it came out but I forgot about it until a few weeks ago, and it reminds me of why I love Pitbull & Ne-Yo.  This song makes me car dance because you can’t help but dance when you listen to it.
  4. Black And Yellow by  Wiz Khalifa.  I am adding this song because even though I don’t listen to this song all that often it is one that I will randomly just start singing because it gets stuck in your head no matter what you do or, at least, it does for me.

  5. Big Guitar by Blackhawk.  I didn’t know anything about this song until 2014 when I started to listen to the 90’s Country station on Pandora and once I heard this song I was hooked.  They have such a different sound, and I know that is why I love it like I do.

I am going to stop at five but if you would like me to do this more often let me know and I will do it again.  What songs or artists are you currently loving to listen to?

To pick these, I went through my history of video’s I watched and picked channels that I saw over and over again.

  1. Fail Army-I watch these videos the minute I get the email saying they uploaded a new video.  I love watching the crazy things that people do.
  2. CoffeeBreakwithDani-I loves this channel because she is always so positive and she just makes me smile.  She has a beauty channel, but sometimes she does other type videos.  She also someone that I trust what she says.
  3. TwoBabyMamas-These two are pregnant with their second baby, and I can’t stop watching them.  I have been following them since they were trying to conceive their first daughter so I can’t wait for them to have their second daughter.  I also find their story interesting because of everything they have to do to get pregnant.
  4. LastWeekTonight-I loves this channel because I usually agree with what he says but he also talks about things I haven’t heard of before, and I love staying informed about things that happen in the world.
  5. Glam&Gore-This lady won the NYX Face Awards and since then I have loved watching all of her tutorials because she always makes me laugh and she is amazing at what she does.
  6. Philip DeFranco-I has watched this channel for years, and I will continue to watch it as long as he makes videos.
  7. thefrugalcrafter Lindsay Weirich
  8. CaseyNeistat-I just recently started watching his video’s, and I love them because they are short daily vlogs, and he has had several viral videos, so he just has an unusual style to his videos and I love that about his videos.
  9. Happily Houseless-I found this channel back in December and since then I have been hooked because of the medical stuff he has had to deal with the past few months.
  10. Kristen Leanne-I loves this channel and to be honest; I am not 100% sure why.  I watch all of her video’s, and I don’t see me stopping anytime soon.
  11. GlamLifeGuru aka Tati-I had one more that I wanted to tell you about because if you are into makeup, I think you will enjoy her videos.  I like them, and I don’t wear any makeup so she must be doing something right.

I also have done a  post like this twice before so if you want to see what I watched years ago, you can here if and here if to check them out.Also have written a couple of posts where I talk about some videos that I love so you can check those out here and here if you want to as well.

Musical Monday-Brave by Sara Bareilles

music copy

I did a Musical Monday post last week and if you missed it you can check it out right here!  This weeks I decided to do a post about the song Brave by Sara Bareilles.  This song came out last year but I just found it and I have to say I have had it on repeat because I love the message of this song.

Now that you have listened to the song what do you think?  Do you love what this song says to everyone?  I think people today need to hear this song and the message because there is so much bullying going on and people feeling like they aren’t worth with anything.  If more people tried to do what this song says I am sure there would be fewer people committing suicide.  This post has turned into me basically saying people need to be nice to each other.

Anyway what do you think of this song?  What songs are you loving now?

All Smiles

All Smiles

I was reading a blog post last week by the SITS girls and they listed 28 prompts for the month of February and as I read through the prompts I saw a few I wanted to write about and this was one of them: What made you smile this week?

I chose this one because I am a firm believer that laughing helps relieve stress and for me when I smile I am usually laughing.  I am going to share a few things that made me smile from this past week.

  • My little brothers son is starting to smile and it seems that I am one of the few who can always get him to smile and laugh.
  • My grandma when we went shopping decided that she was going to make flour go all over me because she acts like she is a teenager.  The bag had a hole in it so she pressed on the bag and flour when all over me.
  • Just watching people made me smile because I don’t think people realize all of the crazy & weird things that they do.
  • I loved watching people get offend when they read the hoodie that I was wearing and see their reactions to it.  I was wearing this hoodie because I love the song and I love the hoodie: (FYI: I got the hoodie here if you want to pick one up for yourself)Coldass_Honky_clothing_large
  • I watched this YouTube video that makes me smile every time I watch it.  The ending is the best part of the video and it makes me smile just thinking about it.

Those are a few of the things that made me smile this past week.

What made you smile this week?

Can’t Hold Us-Musical Monday

music copy

I have another Musical Monday post for you today because lately I have loved listening to music on the way home from work.  It seems like I have more time that usual as well because of all the traffic because of the horrible weather we are having.  Anyway this song is Can’t Hold Us by Macklemore & Ryan Lewis.  I pretty much love the CD that this song is on but I find that I am just putting this song on repeat while I am driving home because it makes me want to dance.  It also makes me forget that I am stuck in traffic.

Do you like this song?  What songs and/or music are you loving now?

Let Her Go by Passenger-Musical Monday

music copy

I haven’t done a musical Monday post for months and months but I have to post this song because I am listening to it on repeat all day long.  It is called Let Her Go by Passenger.

I am not sure what it is about this song that I love so much but I can’t stop listening to it.  I bought the whole album and I have to say that I wasn’t disappointed.  I am not a huge fan of the music videos but I do love his music.  I think I like it so much because he has a very different voice than anything I have heard in years so that always a good thing to me.

What songs are you loving this week?????  Leave them below because I am always on the lookout for great music.

Top 10 Favorite YouTube Channels

youtube

This week for the Writers Workshop I am going to list my top 10 favorite YouTube channels.  This was super hard because I love so many channels so I just picked the channels that I always watch when they have a new video up.

  1. Jenna Marbles-I did a post last year about YouTube channels I loved to watch and this chick was on that list as well.  She is so funny and I agree with so much of what she says.  If you want to laugh go check her out but be warned that she swears tons in her videos.
  2. Daily Grace-I have only watch this lady for a few months but ever since I found her I watch her videos everyday and I have gone back and watched tons of her old ones as well.  She is funny and you never know what you are going to get with each of her videos.
  3. Lisa MarieTTC-This lady is super pretty and even though I have no idea what it would be like to not be able to get pregnant I can’t stop watching her video’s.  She is just starting IVF and I am hooked and I can’t wait for her to get a positive test.  She is so honest when it comes to what she is going through and the costs of IVF and for someone like me who has no idea about IVF it was educational.  Here is the link to the video where she talks about how expensive IVF is.
  4. Grav3yardgirl-I have watch this girl for years and I can’t get enough of her.  Her videos are always entertaining.  If you are looking for someone who is fun and not your typical YouTube person you  need to check her out I know you will love her.
  5. PiinkSparkles-This girls personality is super bubbly and she always puts me in a good mood when I watch her video’s.  She always have fun tutorials using bright colors and she isn’t afraid to be herself.
  6. LaToya Forever-All I am going to say is that this girl makes me laugh.  If you want to laugh you need to check her out.
  7. blndsundoll4mj-I debated whither or not to put this one on the list because she always has such controversy going on but I do enjoy most of her videos.  I wonder at times  what is really and what is fake with her but in the end it doesn’t really matter and she is entertaining to watch most of the time.
  8. Myish-I like this channel because they have different things and it isn’t just one person.  There are serveral different people that contribute and it is interesting to watch most of the time.
  9. ErinandBaby-I have watched this lady since she was pregnant with her first son and she is currently trying to have her 2nd child with her husband.  I just feel like I can relate to her and I always watch her videos the minute I get an email saying that she uploaded a new one.
  10. Annie Gallagher-I started following this lady right before she got pregnant with her twin girls and then she disappeared for awhile because life got crazy after she had the girls but she is back now and I love her videos and she is also someone who for some reason I feel like we could have a lot in common.

Now those are just 10 of the 1,000 channels that I am subscribed to but they are the ones I tend to watch the most.

What channels do you love?
