Happy New Year Brings Happy New Room!

Happy New Year Brings Happy New Room!

Hello 2016!

It’s a New Year. Yay! There’s nothing better than a fresh start and that’s just what 2016 has brought me. Recently, I redesigned my room. Surprise, surprise! Yes, I know, I’m the world’s biggest rearranger of rooms ever, but please, bear with me.

I didn’t add any new furniture to my room, keeping my bed, chair, jewelry table, decor table, and record player stand. Although, I did add a few new “accessories” like a DIY bed canopy. I went to IKEA and found cheap mesh curtains for less than $5 dollars. I tied the two curtains together with a hair tie (I’m so fancy.) and bolted a hook to my ceiling. Et voila!

In addition to my canopy, I added some fairy lights in true Christmas spirit. What I love about them is that they can be used as my room lighting instead of my lackluster over head light.

Fairy lights, pillows, and canopies!

For another room decor DIY, I was inspired by the Urban Outfitters Wall Hanging made from yarn. At a local craft store I found a metal ring and found some very fluffy yarn. I tied the yarn strands to the metal ring and hung the piece of art to the wall.

Personally, I find that jewelry can be one of the hardest things to keep untangled and organized. It seems that for me my necklaces are permanetly tangled. On YouTube, I found a lovely DIY Tree Branch Hanging specifically for jewelry. From a stick I found from a local park, some twine, and metal hanging hooks, I made it.

I also have a table where I have a jewelry box from Crate and Barrel, another DIY sunglasses frame holder, a mannequin for additional necklaces, and a pastry holder where I keep some earrings I recently purchased.  In the corner of my room I keep my Crosley Record Player on a small white table with my records underneath (including my new Adele 25 LP). Of course, I have my Audrey Hepburn on the wall too.

I added a few photos from this year to a side table just for fun.

Around my closet, I added some photos I found on Instagram, Pinterest, and WeHeartIt. I used a paperclip and string to attach them to the wall. I also have little “poofs” that I strung to the wall above my bench, and a light up ‘A’ in true me-fashion.

On my radiator bench I have a mini Christmas tree, a light box, a lantern, and a buddha. Obviously, I’ll remove the Christmas decorations soon and add something new, so stay tuned.

Festivities for the season

So, there you have it. Next week, I’ll be sharing a few tips and tricks for room decor and I’d like to share with you a few things I received from Christmas including books, additional room decor, clothes, accessories, and stationary.

Stay tuned,

Spring Lookbook

Spring Lookbook

This spring is full of bohemian touches: fringes, soft fabrics, flowing shapes, those poncho things and flairs. It’s all the “Coachella” fuss and seventies revival. Flower crowns, overalls, statement necklaces, floppy hats and crop tops. It’s all right I guess for now, but I don’t see it as a permanent trend, TBH. Then again, I did just get a pair of overalls.

Coachella style all the way. What is this? 1974?

Here's a pic from the new Zara spring/summer collection . Says it all when trying to explain that hippie and boho is back.

So I guess what I’m trying to say is everybody is currently obsessing over it all. Meanwhile, I’m contemplating if I like it or not. It’s cool and all, but I guess I’m just not that into it. I realize that I did not exist in the seventies, or the eighties, or the nineties, but I still feel like flared pants, jumpsuits, and high waisted jeans has already been done.

It all makes me wonder, are we going to go back to flapper girl dresses, or whatever chaotic disaster that was going on during the 80’s?

So, with all that in mind, let’s take a look at the best of this spring’s style. Enjoy.

Overalls and denim.
Overalls, denim, and fur.
First of all, let me just note that these beautiful outfits are from Mimi Ikonn.  Monochrome is definitely one of those classic looks that's timeless. Mimi has a great video up on her channel for a whole monochrome cookbook. Just putting it out there.

Must Have Editing Apps

Must Have Editing Apps

Have you ever tried found yourself stuck in the App Store debating over prices and reviews for a photo app?
I have, and I found out that it’s actually very simple to get great photo apps for free!

Add text to a photo with Phonto! It’s really simple, with a wide variety of fonts, colors and you can adjust the shadows or widen the words. This app is really great and it’s free!

For collage I suggest Pic Collage or Vidstitch. Pic Collage is a free app that has fun backgrounds and cute stickers. It allows you to put many photos on one collage and arrange them however you want. Vidstitch is free but it only allows you to put four photos or less (unless you are ok with paying extra). The cool feature is that you can insert photos and videos inside your collage. Definitely a must!

Always been wanting to make a photo with some cool geometric patterns or shapes? PhotoCandy is a possible solution! It’s always fun to make edits on this app (it’s free too!).

For adding color to a photo I don’t really recommend any because they work well, I personally use Color Splash but all apps are fine :)

Ever Had a Pile of Books You’ve Started but Haven’t Finished?

Ever Had a Pile of Books You’ve Started but Haven’t Finished?

I’ve started Insurgent, Mockingjay, This Star Won’t Go Out, Miss Peregrines Home For Peculiar Children and many more books but haven’t actually finished them. Right now, I’m reading The Book Thief but once I’m done what am I going to read?

So how so you solve this problem?

On my top shelf of my bookcase I’ve put all the books that I haven’t read or finished. Depending on my reading mood, I’ve organized them from the book I most want to read/ finish all the way to the books I don’t have much interest in them.

So it looks like I’ll be finishing Insurgent after The Book Thief!

“This is the Voice”

“This is the Voice”

Three seasons ago my mom, dad, and I sat on the sofa and clicked through the TV Menu. Past CNN, but not without stopping, past Keeping Up With The Kardashians , no thank you, Alaskan Hunting, not for me, and finally the Voice.

It didn’t actually go exactly like that. My dad probably heard about it from someone or more likely my mom did. Or maybe they had already heard about it. IDK.

Why don’t we go through an episode of the Voice on a general night?

Shakira was probably teaching Blake what “supercilious” meant.

Blake was also showing his three trophies from the past years. Adam was probably dying his hair blonde and mocking Blake.

Usher is sitting relaxed in his leather jacket and gold shoes tuning it all out. I can never really tell…

Meanwhile, the contestant stands smiling on the stage but probably saying in there head, “I thought this was about ME, not them!”

Note:

I understand that you probably a pro Voice watcher yet. This is all unfamiliar, but please remain engaged.

I know that there are American Idol lovers out there but there’s not other way to state it than, the Voice is better.

There is definitely humor but it’s not harsh to the performers and MOST of the time to each other. (Maybe not the time Blake gave out Adam’s personal phone number, that didn’t go well.) One of the reasons why they aren’t harsh and have no reason to be is because the contestants on the show are stunning for the most part.

The Voice starts immediately with the principal: it’s not what you look like that matters, it’s The Voice. They have red seats turned toward the performer, in the blind auditions, and if they like the performance, they turn around there chair and just hope that the contestant will pick them.

20140723-074531-27931462.jpg

After the judges each have a team of about 15 contestants or so they have the artists have to sing against other artists on their team and sometimes get booted off by there own coach.

After those rounds then it’s America’s turn to vote for the winner!

I can’t wait for next year will Pharrell Williams, Gwen Stefani, Adam and of course Blake Shelton! :)

The Voice is the best show out there!

World Cup 2014

World Cup 2014

Hello everybody,
The World Cup! This year in Brazil, the World Cup, involving 32 teams, has surprised at some points, thrilled at others, and excited us all! One of the best parts about this event is that no matter if you’re on FC Barcelona or which ever team each player goes back to there native country.
In each of the 8 groups these teams are doing the best:
Brazil
Netherlands
Columbia
Costa Rica
France
Argentina
Germany
Algeria

Spain, Croatia, Greece, Uruguay, Honduras, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Portugal, and Russia are in 4th and last place in there groups.

Let’s have a look at the best players in the World Cup right now:
Lionel Messi- Argentina (1st place in their group)
Despite being one if the best soccer players ever he’s never gotten past the quarter finals of the World Cup. The 26 year old plays in Spain on FC Barcelona.
Christiano Ronaldo- Portugal (4th place right now in their group)
Him and Lionel Messi have been in close competition for being the best soccer player in the world right now. He plays for Real Madrid, a close competitor with Lionel Messi’s team FC Barcelona.
However, right now, his team is in last place, beaten by Germany.
Neymar Jr. (1st place right now in their group)
20 million dollar salary, Neymar Jr, 22 years old, is on word the fastest growing footballers in the world. Like Lionel Messi, he’s from FC Barcelona.
Andres Iniesta- Spain (4th place in their group)
The 29 year old, despite being in last place for Spain, scored the final winning goal at the South African World Cup last World Cup. He is another great player on FC Barcelona.

Personally I am for Brazil and Argentina (Neymar and Messi)!
Comment below with your favorite team, player, and guess for the next 2014 World Cup winner.

Happy World Cup,
Misstweenster

Eleven Poem (Susan Cisneros)

Eleven Poem (Susan Cisneros)

If ever you’re feeling five when you’re actually eleven…

“What they don’t understand about birthdays and what they never tell you is that when you’re eleven, you’re also ten, and nine, and eight, and seven, and six, and five, and four, and three, and two, and one. And when you wake up on your eleventh birthday you expect to feel eleven, but you don’t. You open your eyes and everything’s just like yesterday, only it’s today. And you don’t feel eleven at all. You feel like you’re still ten. And you are—underneath the year that makes you eleven.” 

-Susan Cisneros

Letter Frequency

Letter Frequency

I took two very interesting charts from Wikipedia to show how frequent each letter is used in the English language.

Letter Frequency Letter Frequency

In the first chart you can see the most popular letter out of all the words in the English language (remember that each letter is used in the English language., it just depends how frequently it appears in the English language) is e, than t, a, o and on. . . In the second chart it is the same statistics but just from a-z, z being the last letter and the least frequent.

The least frequent vowel is u.

The most frequent is e.

To make this fun, I have a cryptogram: All you have to do is define each letter with the numbers below. Tip: Use the charts above to conclude which letters are used the most. The number that you see used the most is probably going to be one of the top letters on the chart.

A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z
                                                   
__ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __
21 25 11 6 4 26 24 21 26 7 14 21 1 12 11 5
__ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __
25 2 24 24 16 13 21 16 14 25 24 24 16 13

If you can solve this cryptogram before the 30th of September you’ll be the winner!
