Tu(n)esday #2

Due to the fact that I'm leaving on a jetplane soon, this week's playlist will have a bit of a theme to it. The travel bug has bitten! Also, expect a bit of Gaga in there, coz I will be seeing her live come December! Boom!!!

#1: One Direction - Gotta Be You
*like* At first I thought  it was a bit cheesy, maybe a bit too big for them, but now I can't stop listening to it! :D Check out the video, I kinda like it...

#2: Far East Movement - Like A G6
Oh yeah!!!! I'm gonna be flying like a G6 *shades on*

#3: JayZ & Alicia Keys - Empire State of Mind
Gonna see me some New York, so this one had to be in! My friend, Melissa (@melissat91), tweeted me the funniest made up lyrics for this ever! (Follow me on twitter: @maestro_tee)

#4: Temper Trap - Need Your Love
Still loving this song BEEEEG time!! If you haven't heard it yet, what are you waiting for, dooooo ittt!

#5: Glee Cast - Fly/I Believe I Can Fly
This is my Glee track for the week. Yes, I'm a Gleek. Yes, you can expect one every week *shades*

#6: Train - Drive By
This song is so catchy, I heard it once this weekend, and now I have it on repeat :)

#7:  Tupac - California Love
OH YEAH!! This is the real deal. Cali fo' sho'! Plus, this song be jamming... In fact it's playing right now...

I love me some Katy Perry, and with the prospect of hitting up Vegas, you know i'll be jammng out to this song! Hopefully, I won't wake up in a situation too similar :P

#9: Lady Gaga - No Floods
This is my favourite Lady Gaga song. She performed this before she beacme 'Lady Gaga', back then she was just Stefani... It's just her singing & playing piano. It shows of her talent... Sometimes I wish she would show it off more often...

#10: Yolanda Be Cool & DCUP - We No Speak Americano
Need I say more?

As a bonus, please check out this video for Sir Paul McCartney. It is AMAZE-BALLS!!! Love Love Love

The Biebz has ANOTHER tattoo?? Yes, it's true, the boy has gotten a tatt on his inner right elbow(?) of the word "BELIEVE"... My only question is....

Was that the only font?

Have a look and tell me what you think for yourself... 

Just a few days ago, I posted about the One Direction boys getting tatts... Please don't tell me this is tit-for-(em)-tatt *laughs_at_own_lame_joke*


168 hours

Okay, that's an intense sounding title, consdering the book/movie/true-life-story 127 Hours... But all my limbs are still intact, and 168 indicates the number of hours in a week! One week till I leave for the states!! Whoop! Here are some of the things I can't wait for!!

#1: Starbucks
Everything looks amazing and it's just an American thing, you know... You haven' experienced USa till you've had some Starbucks! I could be talking out my ass, but hey, I'm a tourist, get over it! :):)

#2: Summer
Every year around this time, my favourite websites get flooded with summery things. The American summer looks like the dream... Sandy beaches, beach hair, summer drinks... And, frankly, I was not prepared for this Cape Town winter this year! Bbrrrrr! It's bloody freezing!!!

#3: New Friendship
I'm gonna have these (awesome) choir peeps in my face 24/7 for 3 weeks. I'm bound to come back with plenty of new & renewed friendships. And I plan on making as many foreign friends as possible! :):)

#4: The Slim-to-None Chance of Seeing a Celebrity
Let's be real... If I think New York, Las Vegas or Los Angeles, I kinda think CELEBRITIES! There's a tiny chance I might see one! Oh my, I sound like a freak in a zoo, but whatevs! The idea of seeing somebody who's talent I admire... That just knocks me out of the ball park!

#5: Seeing What Only Exists on TV
Empire State Building, Sunset Strip, the Hollywood Sign, Statue of Liberty, Walk of Fame, Baseball,Safe Taxi Cabs. Need I say anymore??

#6: New Things
I'm so excited to buy a few things that will be one of a kind down here in SA!!! I LOVE CLOTHES!!!! & SHOES & accessories *dies_of_excitement*

Sooooooooo amped! 168 hours to go! (till I'm on the plan, then it's like forever till I land... blegh)
Now the troouble is to start packing, what a mish...

Tu(n)esday #1

Here is a list of my top ten tunes for the week!

This tune is soooo catchy! Love it!

#2: Maroon 5 (feat. Wiz Khalifa) - Payphone
I love Maroon 5, they've always had a good vibe and this track is no different!

#3: Jimmy Nevis - Elephant Shoes
I heard this song in passing on the radio, and I had to find out more! It's really quite adorable...

My boys! Lol, this song is catchy & adorable :)

A Monday full of Monsters & Tattoos

So it was announced today that Lady Gaga will be coming to South Africa in December...
 Gaga: "I am SO EXCITED to be bringing THE BORN THIS WAY BALL to South Africa. Stadium shows! Its a dream come true, you'll have to show me around!"
I really wanna go see another concert, but i'm not sure if this is the one I should be going to. It's going to be an amazing experience, I know that for sure, and if i had all the money in the world... I would BE THERE... But I am but I humble student, thinking I should save my money for somebody that I really want to see... Artists on that list include:
  • Adele
  • John Mayer
  • Rihanna (for sure!!!!)
  • The Script (again)
  • Beyonce (it would be ana amazing show)
  • Jessie J
  • VV Brown
  • Jason Mraz
  • One Direction (lawl)
  • Bruno Mars
  • Florence + the Machine
Just to name a few... I'm really on the fence with this one...

Something I wanted to explore here is the fact that the 1D boys are getting some ink! Let's have a looksie!! :) According to MTV.com Zayn & Harry are sporting some new ink... Strange how celebrities can just do what they want, no matter the age... Miley getting engaged, 19/20 years getting multiple tattoos... Here in the real world, I would freak about sharing those kind of details with my parents, in Celebrity-ville, it's cool... Sigh I wish I were a celebrity... Anyhoo, back to the tattoos...

Zayn has gotten a big, fat microphone on his forearm... Because he loves to sing... duh... It's a bit big in my opinion... But hey, he's happy... He also has a few other tattoos, including his grandfather's name, Walter, in Arabic on his chest. (On a side note... I think Zayn's smoking is blegh. Your tattoo maybe cool, and you maybe an awesome singer, but if you don't stop smoking, you pretty much suck... #justsaying)

Harry has added to his pre-exsisting tattoo of a star on his right upper arm. He is adding the lyrics to a Temper Trap song, Sweet Disposition "won't stop 'till we surrender..."
Some fans are debating as the actual lyrics to the song is as follows:
...We won't stop 'til it's over
Won't stop to surrender...
But, really, who cares?? 
What do you think of the boys' new ink?

Sunday Sweetness

Happy Father's Day! I hope you had a wonderful time with your father(s)! Anyhoo, I just wanted to share this picture with you... Actually, I should share something father related... Okay, a quick story:

When I was little, I went with my dad to the butcher... It was a place I had never been to before and I was just looking around, and naturally I got lost... I panicked a little bit, until I saw my dad looking at some fridges. I went up to him and took his hand, because I was scared and didn't want to lose him again... Eventually I lloked up at him, and ,SHOCK HORROR, it wasn't him!! I was about to start crying when I heard my dad laughing. I turned around to see him at the entrance... He had been watching me the whole time! *facepalm*
I know it's corny, but I know my dad's still watching out for me like that, I love him lots...

Anyhoo, onto that pic...

 < How gorgeous? I really wish my hair was this amazingly long and my make up could be done so exquisitely, but still so natural... This is my beauty inspiration pic of the moment...

I hope you like it as much as I do!

This evening I went to hang out with my girls... One of my best friends has been going through a reeeeaally tough time and it sucks that its happening, but we get to grow closer out of it and for that we are blessed... It was just amazing that we didn't talk nonsense about boys and silly stuff... Although I love that, it wasso good to talk about the hardcore real deal of life. I love those girls. Please, don't take your gal pals for granted... This is just a measly little blog post, but it's what I have to honour them. Thanks girls...

I'm HOME!!!

I'm back home in Cape Town... I've just gotten back so, I still need to settle in, but so far, so good... Watched some footie... It's all about the Euro2012 in my house and twitter and everywhere! My hearts on Portugal, but my money says Germany, but it's all about the knockout rounds that are about to go down... I don't really know much about soccer, but I know a hell of a lot more right now compared to what I used to know! I can actually say things, without sounding like a banana peel... :)

This may seem random, but I had been dying to see One Day, and I finally got around to it... It's amazing!! Yes, rather depressing, but wonderful! I think Anne Hathaway does an okay job as a Brit, but the thing I loved most is the travelling through the years. From the 80s right up to the 2000s. And ultimately, this movie is ALL about why I do NOT ride bicycles anymore... If you're wondering what I'm talking about, watch the movie, I ain't gonna give anything away...

I also watched two of my favourite movies yesterday while moping around: The Proposal & The Holiday. LOVE LOVE LOVE!!! The Holiday is especially one of my favourites, maybe because I love Iris's storyline so much, it's just wonderful and makes me feel so content... If you haven't seen it in a while, please hire it or whatever, just get around to seeing it!
The Proposal is just HILARIOUS! And Ryan Reynolds... Hello :) Hahaha! But I love everything about this movie! I remember going to see it at the cinema with Wesley, & when it got to the part where Sandra is breaking it down in the woods with Betty White I was laughing so loud, I think I was bothering people... I just remember Wesley looking at me a little funny, but he was smiling so I just carried on laughing... Good times...

Another hot topic (old but I didn't have time in exams) is Miley's engagement... She's younger than I am!!! Whats with everyone born in the 90s deciding now's a good time to get engaged? Let me clear up my opinion, I don't think soooooo! Lol, but that's just me... I have a good couple of things I wanna do before I'm tied down...

And what a ring!!! *hearteyes* Damn, having cash money must be amaze-balls! Some of these stars have collected a whole bunch of these and probably made key rings out of them... All I want for a key ring is one of those voodoo dolls... I'll try and give you look in a new feature thing I'm trying to figure out... But for now, I'm gonna enjoy being home, chillaxing to my John Mayer & my new Marron 5 album...


Friday, June 8, 2012


I'm sick :( and have a huge exam tomorrow afternoon, so naturally, I need to procrastinate... Thought I'd fill you in on some of the amazing things that I have been introduced to...

Get your hands on the new John Mayer album. It is tooooo good! I'm not a reveiwer of these kinds of things, but I enjoyed the whole album... My favourite tracks include; Queen of California, Love is a Verb & of course the first single off the album, Shadow Days...
Chillax while the rain pours outside while John's lyrics, full of cheek the one minute and sentiment the next, keeps you company! :):)

One Direction is the shiz... Say what you want, these boys can rock it and make you feel like the most amazing girl in the world!! They came 3rd in their season of X factor, but they've definitely won in the long haul... I've only recently given them a chance and I'm not even shy about it anymore, they make me feel good, and, dammit, I don't care who knows it!!

Okay, so the Biebz has grown up a whole bunch... His new track Boyfriend is more into the big boy department, although he's still got his little boy charm... He makes going through the awkward puberty phase easy peasy lemon squeezy.
Now that he's turned 18 he wants everybody to know he's growing up and, well, just listen to the damn song. I, for one, LOVE IT!

Okay, so I am a HUGE Gleek and well, I've had issues, just like everybody.... Even if you don't watch Glee (what is wrong with youuu???) you need to watch episode 14 of season 3... I've watched it a few times & I bawl every single time... Blaine blow's Young the Giant's Cough Syrup out the water and its incredible how moving it is... Please, remember that what you say & what you do affect the people around you... Don't be messing up people's flow coz you wanna seem cool or anything like that... It just affected me so much to think that people go through that kind of pain everyday and the world just goes by ignoring it... So,please, open up your eyes a little bit, you may save somebody's life...
And if ever you've gone though anything rough and felt junk ever, watch the performances toward the end... It makes my choke up and feel confident and feel like I'm worth the space I take up... ;)
I checked out the new Men in Black movie last week... It's great!! :D What a relief... I was concerned that it was going to be awkward with someone else playing a younger K, but Josh does a super job! It's funny & scary, and if you ever enjoyed the MIB movies, do not be afraid to check it out :):):)

So... Some series are over, but means that certain ones are coming back!!!!!!!!
Can't wait for True Blood season 5 baby!!! It's gonna be epic!

Anyhooo... That's where I'll sign off... Need to get back to studying Quantum Chem *tears*

Ciao for now!
