The Truth About Life.

Seven truths we all need reminding of every once in a while…

No-one has all the answers; much of life is a total mystery.

No job is “just perfect” or ideal for you. They all have their boring and frustrating times.

There are no perfect people – everybody lets you down at times – for even the best people have their failings and weak points.

Much of life is humdrum, unexciting and mundane – but it has its times of happiness and joy as well.

Our emotions are fickle and can quickly change. Don’t expect to feel happy and contented all the time.

No matter how well you plan, you will still meet obstacles – but overcoming challenges develops character.

Uncertainty and change are a major part of life – but that adds to the intrigue, and stops things getting dull.

…now if only I could remember these.

Smokin’ and Drinkin’.

I was sad to hear about Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton’s divorce announcement this week, so today’s Sunday Soundtrack (and one of my favourite songs from Platinum) is dedicated to Ms Lambert.

I wish Miranda all the best, and know that she’ll pick herself up and continue to be the badass country gal that she is! Happy Sunday.

O.P. Summer Strolls.

I’m not too sure this outfit would suit me, but for one I’m way shorter than Olivia and two, I’m not really a fan of dresses like these. On the other hand though, it is always nice seeing friends after such a long time hahahahaha, and Olivia’s mini bag is one that I wouldn’t mind owning.

These shots make me long for days when I can just walk around aimlessly and not worry about work or school or every other drama that I have on my mind.

The Scientist.

Why are the last thirty seconds of Suits always the most emotional? I always find myself either getting totally pumped for next week’s episode, or getting completely teary-eyed and blubbery – it’s so strange. And one thing that certainly doesn’t help my emotional state is the music producers insist on playing right at the end. This week the episode ended with a cover of Coldplay’s ‘The Scientist’ by Tyler Ward, Kina Grannis and Lindsey Stirling. Check it out.

Happy Sunday.

Sippin’ On Fire.

Isn’t it funny how there are those songs that you used to listen to all the time, memorised all most of the lyrics, and after a year of not hearing the song, whenever it comes on you still remember EVERY word? If you ask me, Sippin’ On Fire is definitely one of them – which is kind of surprising to me considering that I didn’t even realise I knew all the words to the song until a couple of weeks ago when I randomly decided to give it a listen. Oh the wonders of the human brain.

Happy Sunday!

First.

When I heard this song on last week’s Suits, I realised just how long it’d been since I had last listened to Cold War Kids. It’s funny to think that I used to listen to them on repeat for hours on end, and would sing along to all the words on ‘Mine is Yours’, whilst daydreaming about maybe one day seeing them live. My how time flies… Anyway, like most other Cold War Kids songs, I LOVE LOVE LOVE it. it’s got this vibe to it that’s just so Cold War Kids (sorry I don’t know how else to describe it), and it’ll have you tapping your feet and humming along in no time. It’s perfect for a lazy summer’s Sunday basking outside in the sun.

Happy Sunday.
