Helllloooooo lovelies! Here are the top four songs I've been listening to this month.
4. "Swingin Party" by Lorde
This cover is hauntingly beautiful - I don't care if "Royals" is overplayed, Lorde is actually pretty good.
3. "California" by The Kooks
I made a CD of songs about Los Angeles (and surrounding areas) for my lovely foreign exchange student from England who left yesterday... so sad. But this song just reminds me of home, and I love dancing around to it alone in my room. It's also a cover.
2. "Doin' it Right" by Daft Punk & Panda Bear
I hear this song on the radio all of the time, and I always find myself turning the volume up and singing along. Well, doing my best robot voice/Noah Lennox impressions. I dunno, it's just a really good song.
1. "I Wanna Be Yours" by Arctic Monkeys
The lyrics of this song are actually adapted from a poem of the same name, which I am obsessed with. It's a beautiful song and Alex Turner's vocals make me want to melt.
Here's a few things I got from friends and family for my birthday on the 19th. First, I'm so excited for my new glasses. My old ones are getting all scratched up, and everyone at my school is getting them. I'm freaking out about the second Rookie yearbook, and I can't wait to stay up late reading it by my book light. I fell in love with Fjallraven backpacks when I got a classic lavender one for school, and this one was on sale so I decided to ask for it as an alternative and to use next year too. Also, I went to the mall with my lovely foreign exchange student on the day after my birthday and bought myself this flannel head scarf thingy. I've been wanting one forever and I cannot wait to wear it.
Hello lovelies! Well, it's that time of year again... my birthday is in less than two weeks (October 19th, to be exact) and I cannot wait! I'm super young for my grade (still 14, 10th grade) so I'm always really excited for the day that lets me say I'm just as old as everyone else. Well, at least until spring when everyone starts turning 16. Whatever.
I am obsessed with these pants from American Apparel. Super adorable, and I love the color. They'll go well with everything!
I bought a record player with my own money last year, but it only plays through my family's TV downstairs. I really want one for my room that I can play when my friends come over or if I'm just hanging out.
I mentioned that I wanted a new pair of glasses, too... I have terrible eyes!
And finally, I would really love to read Alexa Chung's book, It.
Hello lovelies! I recently discovered this brand on ASOS called Hunt No More. They make the prettiest party dresses! It just so happened that my favorite dress went on sale, so I snatched it for a party that I'm going to tonight.
Previously $220, now it's $35? I'd say that's a steal. I'm going to wear it with my black suede chunky heels and have my hair blown out to waves. I cannot wait!
