I’ve been obsessed with flower crowns or anything floral in general (hence my blog name) and so i figured i want to have one on my own. But as i searched through online shops (ig and fb), i realized that they all have the same style and they are kind of expensive. Then i figured that the best way to have a unique and affordable flower crown is to make one. I got this idea from watching etcetera by patti and kim (its on etc idk if its still on air or something). Hope you will learn something from this post as well! Have a great day, flowerchild xx

Summer Playlist 2014

image

Summer has finally arrived in the Philippines, and man, it was HOTTER THAN EVER.

I can almost hear the beach’s call, but since I still have school and finals week is coming, i am happy I have my fave summer tunes with me.

Cody Simpson’s Surfer’s Paradise album is my current obsession. The melody was just so catchy! It makes me think of the beach waves, the sun, the sand – it basically screams summer! Plus, Cody’s singing improved a lot, it was nice that he finally found his signature sound.

My song picks:

1. Love

2. Summertime of our lives

3. Sinkin’ in

Colbie Caillat has been one of my favorite female artists. I just love her sound, its so light and chill. Perfect for summer!

image

My song picks:

1. Dream life, life

2. Before I let you go

3. All of you

And that’s it! Listen to the full albums if you want the full experience. And maybe you can pick your fave tunes as well! Might be adding more to this list, so better watch out :)

MERMAID HAIR

oh how i miss my long (but damaged, i know) hair

my late night blog obsession over tricia gosingtian made me post this. i was just inspired by how beautiful everything is with her, and she made me want to pursue photography even more. so here’s a photo of a floral gap top i borrowed (more like stole) from my mom

There’s just too much going on at the moment

Unlike Taylor Swift in the music video “22”, and just like the third season of Sherlock Holmes, I feel like my life in the past few weeks has been a whirlwind of sleepless nights, stressful days, hateful deadlines and thorough trainings. When I entered college, I decided that I will just be a normal student. It’s not that I don’t want to excel, it’s just that I got tired from the expectations of being always the highest in the class, of being the best in everything way back in high school. But then now I am facing a situation that requires tons of concentration and mind power to get through. 

I must admit, I have missed the thrill of being competitive in class, of studying and training for something big and great. And I am surprised to be enjoying all those chemistry trainings at night, but I can’t help but feel inferior with my teammates. They are really, really good; while i’m just me. I felt that the years I spent lilo-ing with my studies greatly affected my abilities. I’m embarrassed at some point, because there are things that I’m supposed to know, things that I know I know, but they are apparently lost somewhere in my greasy brain. It’s really frustrating. I am actually trying to make up for the lost time but I am finding it hard to study. I am starting to work on my thesis, I am a member of an academic organization (which I really love, but sometimes, I get disappointed with people who don’t know what commitment is), and so there is actually not much time. My friends even told me that I ave changed in just a span of two weeks. I am serious and very masungit most of the time. My sister also told me that it was hard to talk to me at home.  It’s just too much to handle. I wish I could just let it go.

PS. The Frozen reference was unintentional.

in the books

Found this while browsing though my old files, cant believed I made it more than a year and a half ago! I cant find it in my old blog (a-flower-on-the-wall.tumblr.com) anymore so im just posting it here again. And since ive read other books now, I have added some more guys as well. Gosh I am such a flirt – with these boys I could never ever have. Ever. *harakiri*

 

You are reading Naela’s Blog. Welcome!

Today’s date: June 2, 2012

You are visitor number: 999, 999

Hello! Well I’m sorry I’m just imitating Fang’s blog (from the Maximum Ride Series by James Patterson) because you know, he’s kind of, uhmmmm, cute, I guess. I don’t know why but I always find myself liking not the most popular or the most handsome guy; instead, I always go for the mysterious, cute guy with dark hair and dark eyes. *kilig*

**I really really don’t know what the h*ll happened to me today and I’m talking about boys. Me? Talking about boys? Is it the end of the world? Hahaha :)

Well I’m not here to talk about guys I like in real life. I’m here to talk about my book crushes. Call me a nerd. Just to give you a head start while reading the descriptions later, you may think that I seem to be drawn to dead guys or guys related to the dead. Well I apologize for that, but don’t worry I’m not the suicidal type. Haha! Well you may notice as well that I love guys who can protect me, like a hero with indescribable hotness :P

 1. Nico di Angelo from the Percy Jackson Series and the Heroes of Olympus Series by Rick Riordan

Nico di Angelo is the son of Hades, he can summon/talk to/give orders to the dead, by just offering food from McDonalds in their tomb. How cool is that? Well of course I love Percy (especially with Logan Lerman playing the role), but I think she’s better with Annabeth. I’m not sure if his physique was described in the books, I just know that he was forever young in that Lotus Casino. So I’m hoping that a very cute guy will play his role in the movie! *fingers crossed*

2. Four from Divergent by Veronica Roth

 This is what I am talking about! Tough guy on the outside but a tender and loving man on the inside. I just feel that whenever I’m with him, I’m safe. This guy can protect you in all ways he can, except when injected with a serum by that wicked erudite lady (Jeanine) in the book. He is also brave enough to take his girl into his fear landscape. I mean sharing your fears with your girl? Man, that takes a lot of courage. His deep fear of heights, his cruel father, being enclosed in a tight space, and killing someone he loves. Four fears. According to the Dauntless leaders, it was very rare that someone has only four fears. That’s why they named him that. Nevertheless, it’s what every girl wants: a knight in shining armor; well not really with the shining armor, cause this guy’s rugged, with all his tattoos and ripped muscles. Oh gosh, I love him.

 3. Fang from the Maximum Ride Series by James Patterson

Anybody here who knows the Jonas Brother’s song “Fly with Me”? Well, today is your lucky day, cause Fang is the real deal. He can fly-I mean, literally fly. He’s a genetically enhanced boy, with 2% avian genes. He has a pair of dark, almost black wings that seem to turn purple in the sun. Wouldn’t it be nice to spend one lazy afternoon with him flying you around the city? He can also protect you, he can fight to death. But here’s the catch: he rarely talks. You’re lucky enough if he says a complete sentence to you. But, *drumroll please* he is a BLOGGER! Where in the world can you find a good-looking-flying-guy-who-is not-gay-and-likes-to-blog? In the books.

4. Anubis from the Kane Chronicles by Rick Riordan

Anubis is a drop-dead gorgeous guy as Sadie Kane described him on the novel. Emphasis on drop-dead because he is the Egyptian God of Funerals! That makes him perfect! You know, we can hang-out on cemeteries at night, have dance parties with zombies, etc. Okay, enough of that.

5. Jace Wayland/Morgenstern/Herondale/Lightwood from The Mortal Instruments Series by Cassandra Clare

He was described in the books as the *nuclear bomb of boyfriends*, by a straight vampire guy. Imagine how hot he is then! And with Jamie Campbell Bower playing his role in the movie, my gawd. Feels all overrrrrrr! Gold hair, gold eyes, angular face, soft lips, just like an angel; washboard abs, marks all over his body, nice arms and legs; he is also a graceful mover, fighter; a good dancer, he loves books, he can also play the piano, he likes his room clean, he arranges his poetry collection in alphabetical order, he is an awesome fighter, he can fight demons, fight in another world and beyond – he will do anything just to keep you safe, he could be arrogant and annoying and narcissistic and vulnerable all at the same time, just one look in his eyes you can see that he truly loves you, HE IS HEAVEN SENT AND HE IS PERFECT. Oh and by the way, did I mention that he has real angel blood in his veins?

6. Magnus Bane from The Mortal Instruments Series by Cassandra Clare

He is a hot warlock with cat-eyes and an out of this world wardrobe. He is gay. A hot gay. And that actually made him hotter! I can’t believe I’m saying this, but move over Jace and Clary, but the hottest couple award goes to Magnus and Alec. I mean seriously, who can resist someone who can pull-off a sequined armour? Godfrey Gao, who plays Magnus in the movie is equally hot, so yeah everything’s good! :P

2013 has been one heck of a year. Met new friends, lost some.  Made a lot of mistakes, but i learned a lot. The ups and the downs, the twists and turns, they’re all part of this one crazy ride called life. And as the fireworks pollutes the air, as our torotots fill our houses with loud annoying noises (hashtag KJ), i am genuinely grateful for having such wonderful people to share these experiences with. And i can’t wait to see what 2014 has to offer!
