HAPPY INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY!
I remember writing this same post last year super last minute because I realised I hadn’t written any posts (classic Hreem)
I don’t want to write about the same things I wrote last year which was some of the women that inspire me, and I was TRyInG to think of something kinda original. So I came up with something that includes one of my interests and is just useful to some people (I guess…?!) So I present to you a girl power playlist!
These are a bunch of songs that (I think) are kinda girl power-y. Use this at sleepovers for the crazy (but trying to be quiet) 2 am dance partyyy.
♥️ Girl Power Playlist ♥️
- BO$$ by Fifth Harmony
- Run The World (Girls) by Beyoncé
- Ain’t Your Mama by Jennifer Lopez (I ain’t your mama NoOoOooOOOO)
- Who Do You Think You Are by the Spice Girls
- Power by Little Mix
- That’s My Girl by Fifth Harmony (yes, another one)
- Who Says by Selena Gomez
- Girl Power by the Cheetah Girls (hehe)
- Salute by Little Mix (what can I say, girl groups really spread the message)
sooooo that should keep you occupied for about 25 minutes I think. I know I’ve missed a ton of the best ones but if you make a playlist like this, add them. Or just tell me the ones I forgot down below.
Can we just take a moment to appreciate how amazing these girl groups are? I have like *goes back to count* 6/9 of these songs are by groups. Cool.
Make sure to comment some of your fave girl power songs!!
The last time I did a book review was like, last year. And I really wanted to do another one but I didn’t find any new reads that I felt like sharing with you guys.
So as all of you probably know, near the end of 2018 a movie called ‘To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before’ released on Netflix. It’s based on the book by Jenny Han. Almost everyone went crazy over the movie and I honestly quite liked it but I think it was super overhyped and that set the expectations pretty high for me.
This book is quite related to Valentine’s Day, which is today, sooooo that’s pretty cool!
SPOILER ALERT : There will be spoilers in this review so if you don’t want to know all the details just skip to the last paragraph.
In my opinion the book is much better than the movie but I really like to read anyway so that might just be me. The book is about a shy teenage girl named Lara-Jean who has one older and younger sister and no mom. Everytime she gets over a crush she writes a letter pouring out her feelings and addresses them to each of the five boys.
Suddenly one day the letters are sent to each of the 5 boys and all her feelings are exposed. Even though they were sent to five guys (lol, like the restaurant), two of them were more important; Josh (her older sister’s boyfriend) and Peter (the most popular boy in school).
Then she starts fake dating Peter because he wants to make his ex-girlfriend jealous, and to make Josh jealous. Then a few events happen and they start to realise they actually like eachother for real and find out who sent the letters…
I think this book is very intriguing and has a great plot/storyline. It is very different to any book I’ve ever read. I love that it isn’t just focused on one thing (romance) it also has elements of friendship and family, as her little sister Kitty brings a lot of humour. The only thing I don’t like is that it sometimes has a few plot holes, like, why would you address the letters if you never meant to send them? But overall I definitely reccommend this book.
My Rating: 9.5/10
Have you watched the movie and/or the book? Thoughts?
Btw don’t let the intro fool you,
I’m kinda aargh right now because my school started on Sunday, part of the squad?
But enough of that (I’m sure I’ve said that in every post) let me just talk about what you came here to see; some clothing pieces that I really wish I had. This is I think the first time I’ve ever done a fashion-y post so let’s get to it.
Firstly, I just want a BASIC. DENIM. SKIRT. I can honestly say I’ve only owned one denim skirt to this day. But I always drool over them when I see them around; I’ve got serious issues…
Also, I want one of that kind of open-knit sweater thingies without the pattern on it for fall and winter. I never bought it because it wouldn’t be available in Dubai since the weather is hothotHOT. Every day I cycle to and from school (fit girl right here) and it’s a very dumb decision because when I’m returning home my bike feels like it’s been inside a microwave and the weather makes me feel like I’m in the microwave along with it. Okay, storytime over.
And finalllllyyyyyyyy….. an overalls dress. I’m sorry I have no idea what these are called but they’re like overalls and instead of shorts it’s a skirt; get what I mean? They’re just super cute and the perfect go-to outfit when you’re too lazy to pick one (join the club 🙋🏼).
Just adding this in since it kind of matches with the post: honestly my favourite style inspo is Rachel from ‘Friends’ because her outfits look so well put together and casual at the same time. TBH all the three Friends girls have such cute, individual styles from the 90’s and I’m in looove!
Who/what is your style inspiration?
