A new member of my gadgets-family

I remember the time when I was a kid and music pods were big-kids-luxury while I'd just sit there with my nitendo gameboy and stare at my screen and play Mario. But that was then and this is now. I'm a big kid with a tablet but I can't move around with a tablet just for songs so I NEEDED a music pod or mp3. And a few days ago, Tmart guys emailed me to collaborate and when I searched their website, I knew what I exactly wanted, A MP3!

This little fella comes with a mp3 + headphones + cable usb. But the bummer is that you don't get an adapter to charge it, you have to attach it to your laptop which is my least favorite part. It wasn't charging properly at first but its working fine now. The approx time for battery is 3 hours.

The best thing about this little thing is that its sound is DA BOMB! Small size and big loud sound. If you take public transport and you're annoyed by the noise and weird strangers, trust me this little fella is for you. And plus points, IT HAS A TINY CAMERA! As I'm good at leaving my camera/tablet behind and go to see wonderful places, this little mp3 would help me taking few shots, though its camera isn't great (640 x 480 pixles) but still works well.

Say hello to my creative bed corner.

Call me silly but I've given this a name, a pet name, Teetotum because giving your gadgets a name is cute and they deserve a little love. So Teetotum is a new member of my gadgets-family. HOLA MATE!
My current playlist includes:

Bad Blood - Taylor Swift (MUST LISTEN)
The Devil Within - Digital Daggers
Gasoline - Troye Sivan
Aquarius - Digital Daggers (MUST LISTEN)
Still Here - Digital Daggers
Red - Taylor Swift
Arms - Christina Perri 
Steal my girl - One Direction
Somebody to you - The Vamps

So much Digital Daggers, right? I am in LUVV with this band and their songs give me goosebumps. For real. Yes the feels. And Troye Sivan, this boy is magical. And Tay-Tay is everywhere with her new album and Bad Blood is my new favorite.

The main review:
It works well when it comes to sound but you have to press buttons twice or more than twice to make them work. And sometimes screen rotate and change your song (I HATE THAT) It comes with 4gb memory which is a win-win. It's really light and easy to carry which is another win-win. It costs 13$ which is a little expensive. Else, everything is fine and it would make a cute holidays present.

I'd give it:
3 out of 5

Do you have a music pod/mp3? And what's on your playlist?

Disclaimer: I was provided with product to review but all opinions are my own.

My holidays plans //Plus, a Giveaway

Finally the winter break is HERE! Can you believe it? It was just summer vacations a while ago and then things suddenly changed and leaves turned orange and college started and I started hoping for winter break to come soon so that I can be a polar bear for 10 days and sleep like a bear because college makes me tired and hungry and more hungry especially during early classes. And now if you're already on winter break, HIGH FIVE! And if you're not, be jealous! Because I'm going to have so much fun with my blanket and pillow and food. Oh and with my blog. 

It's 2015 near so it's time to make some new year's resolution that I'm NOT going to follow as usual but as it's a trend, I'll think of some and come up with some convenient ones and blog about it. But right now all I am thinking is about holidays. And I have some plans that sound perfect to me. They might include sleeping, sleeping even more, Instagramming some new stuff and trying to cook, maybe, just a maybe-kinda-thought.

My first SUPER PLAN!

This might be a lousy pose for sleeping but hey! I have my eyes closed and a "sleep" tag on it so it makes it legal for this spot. I'm going to sleep HOURS! No more 6 am routines, no more incomplete sleeps. Me and my dreams are going to fall in love again and I'll keep sleeping. You have no idea how long I have waited for holidays to come so that I can like sleep like dead, or bear or a baby.

I have gotten a complete pack of Secret Seven. Their story resemble to my old favorite cartoon Code Name Kids Next Door, in a way, so I'm completing the whole series. This may say it's suitable for 15 years old and it makes me feel old but I'll read it anyway, it's really interesting. 

 I'm on season 3 of Pretty Little Liars and A has totally screwed my kind and I can't stop watching. I want to find out who the bitch A is, and what the efffff does she/he/or-whatever wants. I'm totally hooked up. Though I lost interest in season 2 but I'm back again.

Bear with me while I keep complaining how late season 5 of Teen Wolf will be this year. It'll be back in June, are you kidding MTV guys? It's SO LONG! So I'll be re-watching my favorite episodes and watch crack videos + fanfiction + anything that includes it. This is the 367th level of fangirling and i'm totally fine with it.
Yup you heard it right, I'm taking my chances with kitchen on official level and this holiday I might cook or bake or do anything that includes preparing food. Maybe I would be able to post some recipes that ACTUALLY work for me or you'll just miss my cooking adventures because sometimes they're too embarrassing to be shared. Uhf.

And now,
Everyone, meet Ari from Happy cactus Shop. She's on my sidebar this month and she's a super creative soul!

About Ari:
I'm a graphic designer and amatuer photographer living in the Deep South with my husband and two dogs. I have a slight obsession with handlebar mustaches, the color green, German Shepherd dogs, and 1970s home decor. When I'm not sewing, I can most likely be found lounging in my backyard with a book in hand and trying desperately to find a red wine I enjoy.
About The Shop: The Happy Cactus Shop was born about 6 years ago when I was searching for my flash drive in the depths of my purse. After what seemed to be 30 minutes of frustrated digging (in reality it was only 3 minutes) and pulling everything out of my bag, I decided that mere pockets were not enough to organize my purse. I created The Perfect Pouch to store all my small necessary items in and would never have to dig again!

In the years since my shop was started, I have focused on created bags, purses, and accessories that are not only practical, but also aesthetically pleasing. I use my background in graphic design to make every item something that you would want to display.My inventory is constantly growing with new and different items showcasing both fabrics and my own designs.
The name "Happy Cactus" comes from the fact that, try as I might, my house is where plants go to die. Only the cacti are "happy" with my version of gardening. I am currently the proud caregiver to 9 different cacti (and they are all happy).

Why BuzzFeed is my bestfriend

I'm obsessed with Internet, you can guess that. My online best friends include Tumblr (Duh, I mean Tumblr is my second life) and Buzzfeed. It's a beautiful place to waste your time on articles that usually make no sense in real life but oh sometimes they really make sense and help you in someway. This post is dedicated to my online best friend who really makes my shitty moments of life good and I can stare at my tablet's screen for long,

The GIFs
When you have so many emotions, trying to come out but you can't explain them in words, GIFs jump to help. The besuty of buzzfeed is that there are SO SO SO many gifs there. Like a planet of gifs, their articles use gif-language (This word makes sense to me) and I feel like YEAH THAT'S WHAT I WANNA SAY! And, YES THIS IS TOTALLY ME IN THIS GIF!

Me when I tweet something wrong. NO PLEASE DON'T SEND THAT TWITTER!

My emotions when my favorite character is paired with the character I HATE! 

I get the news
I'm glad it's a not-so-boring way of getting news from all over the world. Thanks to buzzfeed for keeping me reported when Ryan Gosling disappeared from the holy world of internet. Plus point to this website, they love Ryan Gosling as much as I do so we're soul mates here.

Oh the quiz
The quizzes make my life better. Like the moment when I took this, which hot guy you deserve for holidays
Michael Fassbender was born on this desolate planet on April 2, 1977, 
making him a supporting Aries to your ruling Leo. 
You’ll both have your really high ups and your mellow lows,
 making it one dynamic pairing. ;)

I got Michael Fassbender but I'd have preferred Ryan Gosling or Tyler Hoechlin. I'm thankful anyway. 

And this Teen Wolf ones,
I was Lydia Martin. Huh, I always felt I'm a banshee!

Viral Stuff
Viral stuff is always the juciest. When Alex From Target happened, it was my best friend Buzzfeed who let me know what was up. And all the viral vines and everything!

It satisfies my lust of fandom
I mean the gifs, the captions, the similar taste in fictional characters make me feel better there. There's no discrimination, you can find every kind of fandom. Like when I needed this Teen Wolf article because it won't be on air until 2015 and I needed support to be alive.

The community
This wonderful community who posts stuff there except of Buzzfeed staff, They talk my language and make me feel like home. And I love them even more when they post articles like thisss

My current favorite gems from Buzzfeed this week:
55 greatest celebrity tbt photos of 2014 // My favorite: KIM KARDASHIAN!

Do you love Buzzfeed as much as I do? Or do you have a best friend like this?

Internet is a weird place

Internet is a weird (See: Wonderful, maybe, uhh) place. And after the Alex From Target happen, I'm sitting here, typing this I believe ANYTHING is possible here. I love to check all the stuff going viral and tell myself WHAT DA HECK HAPPENING HERE? So today I was just scrolling down my Twitter for no reason, I saw this, 

And this,
Then this,
And finally this.

And my final reaction was: Enough Internet for today!!!
Seriously, I am shocked, amused and again still in shock. Though I am an active fangirl myself and I don't mind spending my days writing fanfictions that make 0 sense at all and reblogging random crap about my fandom on Tumblr , I still feel like I am under my control. So you probably have gotten my point that this girl (dk what's her name she's just gone viral with her fancy 1D adventures) is not what normal fangirls are, she's the mega-fangirl-gone-more-than-obsessive.

I don't think she's mad. She's just more than obsessive than she should be. Believe me my mom would have thought she's insane but I'm 17 myself and survived the Biebs-crazy (I hate to accept that) 1D-addiction and worshiping-Miley-the-Hnnah-Montana age. But the only thing that is stuck in my mind: WHY? This doesn't make any sense. Or maybe she lost a dare in her real life. Oh well a possibility.

It's okay and fun to have a fandom to stick with and maybe be a little obsessed with it. Treat yo self, I'd call it.  But when obsession becomes bigger than you can take it, the real world gets ugly for you even if it's really not and things like this happen. I love to have a reason to day dream but it's usually a disaster if the "day dreaming" comes true, I'd prefer the real dreams I normally see in nights.  I don't know what to say anymore, maybe that she dressed her groom aka Harry Styles very badly. She could do better with the sleeves & bow. OKAY DON'T KILL ME! And Liams looks the worst. Gosh. And Niall looks beaten. Stop. Zayn's legs are out of order. Enough observation for now.

Are you a fangirl? *inssert ANY emoji here*

I fell in love with my dreams

That's a VERY old picture, duh.
Sleep looks the most wonderful thing when my alarm rings on 6 am and I have no way to escape except to wake up, check my emails and find my way to bathroom. It's everyday that I fall in love with my dreams so I want to sleep EVEN more, I'm just a tired college student what do you expect?

I wasn't going to blog about sleep because I've blogged about it enough in past year when I was a sleepy high school student who loved to post rants but now I've grown up a bit and I use public transport and I sleep in my bus. Yes I have to travel an hour to reach the college and it's always like 6:45 am, what am I supposed to do? I'd just sit on a seat, put my bag on my lap and it'd be my pillow and sleep like I own this moving wheels. And miracle I'd wake up before my stop comes. That's our daily routine. Me and my sleep are bestie fo lyfeee.  But that's okay, nobody knows me in this big wide bus and I will never see these strangers again who knows I looked this ugly once. Believe me sleep wins over beauty. You know, sweet dreams rhyme better than you look pretty. Oh well.

It's always funny to see others sleeping on their seats. And I feel like IS THIS HOW I LOOK WHEN I AM ASLEEP? MY EYES HALF OPEN? Look at someone who's struggling for sleep in a bus, their head dangling here and there, mouth half open and they have know idea how do they look. This is called true love and passion, for their sleep. Because they're not giving up on their dreams, so they keep sleeping. Okay this is lame but I thought it was something that gives me feels (useless feelings) because I laugh inside when someone is sleeping with their mouth open and I'd just think, "Do others laugh at me too when I look the perfect example of ugly while sleeping?" If yes, I should be proud of spreading free smiles and laughs. Hint: I'm being lame again.

It's not really like I always fall asleep, I keep my books with me and I read them sometimes during the travel but some authors are SO good at making their readers sleepy, oh I should use the term boring here. So sometimes it's author's fault that I feel sleepy. 

It's 9 pm and I feel like I should be in my bed already, WHAT AM I DOING WITH MYSELF? I have a lot of homework to do, a poem and a whole friggin fanfiction to complete. Life is hard doe. Life is hard. 

Please tell me you love sleeping and we can be best friends!!
