Music March! Indie Week |Chloe Jane – Photographs.

Hello everyone,

Welcome to Indie Week! I am thrilled to share with you all my favourite indie songs.

Ever since I found out about the indie genre, it has been life changing. Indie music aka independent music is genre where artists create music independently. They produce music independently from commercial record labels, which allows more freedom to add your personal touch to your craft.

Today I will be introducing Chloe Jane and her song Photographs. According to the information I found on her website, she is an indie rock songwriter and performing artist. She combines pop and grunge with guitar and synthesizer elements. Two of my favourite sounds in music, it reminds of the good old 80s.

Her song Photographs has a more relaxed pop folk melody. This is song with nostalgic lyrics disguised with a happy tune.

I hope you all enjoy it as much as I did.

Enjoy and see you soon!

Music March! Soundtrack Week | Hunger Games – Safe & Sound

Hello everyone,

Welcome back to Music March!

Today we are going back to 2012 to the Hunger Games. The Hunger Games soundtrack was amazing and I still have many of the songs on my playlist. One of my favourite songs from the first film was Safe and Sound, by Taylor Swift ft. The Civil Wars.

This is a beautiful soulful ballad, perfect main track for this amazing dystopian franchise.

Let me know what you think about this song ūüôā

Music March! Soundtrack Week | Tears of The Sun (2003) – Main Theme.

Hello everyone,

Welcome back to Music March!

Today for Soundtrack Week, I’ll be sharing the main score from the movie, Tears of the Sun!

The movie was released in 2003 and it is about the fallen Nigerian Government, and how the country is on the verge of war. When it comes to movies like this one, the acting is so important but the soundtrack also makes the movie complete.

The score captures the essence of this movie, the tragedy of war and the emotions it emits. The composer of this score is by Hans Zimmer, Steve Jablonsky and Lebo M. Hans Zimmer is known for creating masterpieces that are timeless, there is signature sound to his work. If you listen to a lot of Hans Zimmer compositions, you just know when it’s his creation.

This melody, melancholic, heartbreaking, and struggling against injustice. It’s interesting how music can create such emotions.

I hope you all like today’s song choice, let me know what you think in the comments below.

Music March! Soundtrack Week | Romeo and Juliet (1996) – Young Hearts Run.

Hello everyone,

Welcome back to Music March!

Today for Soundtrack Week, I’ll be sharing a song from the 1996 rendition of the movie Romeo and Juliet. The song that makes me smile and makes me want to go to my own masquerade ball is “Young Hearts Don’t Run”.

A modern twist to a classic love story is up my alley. The soundtrack is musically intriguing, both the instrumental score and the songs with lyrics. This song in particular is from the masquerade scene in the movie. It is a disco genre and the song was originally performed by Candi Staton in 1976.

Years later, Kim Mazelle covered this song for the triple platinum selling soundtrack of the movie.

This upbeat tune will make you want to get and dance. I hope you like it and please look forward to my new post tomorrow!

See you soon!

Music March! Soundtrack Week | Game of Thrones – Against All Odds.

Hello everyone,

Welcome back to the first official post of Music March, we are introducing the first song choice for soundtrack week. My choice for today is Against All Odds from Game of Thrones.

I have to thank Ramin Djawadi for composing beautiful masterpieces. The Game of Thrones soundtrack is moving and it makes you feel every emotion. Whether it’s sadness, despair, loneliness, or strength. Ramin Djawadi knows how to move the audience with his music.

The instrumental I chose to share with you all was a beautiful song from Season 7. Against All Odds is taken from the scene where Jon Snow and his crew are completely surrounded by the White Walkers. The sequence of this scene shows the audience their fierce battle, that slowly turns to losing hope, and quickly to strength when Daenerys arrives.

Everything about this instrumental is perfection, the melody is strong and inspiring. It conveys the emotions Jon Snow was going through when he was fighting to the death. Sometimes I listen to this to inspire me during the day, or when I have to do a difficult workout.

What is your favourite instrumental from GoT? It’s hard to choose, but I would love to read your responses.

Enjoy the song and see you tomorrow!

Foodie February! My Favourite Breakfast Meals.

Hello everyone,

Welcome back to Foodie February! Today is the last post for this monthly segment and I decided to share with you some of my favorite breakfast meals.

Let’s get started!

1. Avocado Pudding

This is one of my favorite breakfast creations and to make this it is very easy. All you need is one large avocado, two tablespoons of cocoa powder, half of a banana, honey and little bit of milk. All of these ingredients need to be put in a blender and pour in milk is essential because it helps blend all of the ingredients faster. When everything is blended, it will have a pudding consistency. It is a healthier and better alternative to actual chocolate pudding! You put some toppings such as berries, coconut flakes and etc.

2. Waffles and Jam

This is fairly simple but on a day when I want to feel fancier, I like to have gluten free waffles with jam. This is so delicious and sweet!

3. Cereal.

Cereal is quick and easy for those days when you are in a rush. I have a few kinds of cereal I love and I tend to pick an organic cereal. This one here is a vegan cocoa cereal from Costco and it’s divine.

4. Bulgarian style pancakes

These are the best pancakes anyone could ever taste. These are Bulgarian style pancakes, they are very thin and they are stuffed with feta cheese or jam. This breakfast is more gourmet for days when I want to feel fancy or have a special day.

5. Yogurt granola bowls

This is my all-time favorite breakfast choice! I use organic probiotic yogurt with bananas, strawberries, and blueberries. I like to use raspberries or blackberries, I put one table spoon of chia seed powder to make it extra healthy.

6. Scrambled Eggs and Avocado

This is my choice for a savory breakfast, I love scrambled eggs with avocado and sometimes I’ll add gluten-free¬†toast or crackers. I also add some fruit to add a little bit of sweetness to my meal.

7. Smoothies

IMG_0166[1]IMG_0168[1]IMG_0171[1]

When I’m not too hungry but I still need to nourish my body, I make smoothies. I have types of smoothies that I like to make. The first one is with almond milk, one banana, strawberries, blueberries and chia seed powder. The second¬†smoothies I like to make it with spinach, one banana, and chia seed powder. It so healthy for you and a great way to detox your body if you ate junk food from the day before.

Thank you so much for reading and keeping up with this segment! I’ll have more food-related posts for you soon.

Now I would like to announce the next monthly segment…Music March!!! That’s right I’ll be posting music-related posts only and each week will have a theme. I will announce the themes by Friday, so please stay tuned.

See you soon!

Foodie February! COSTCO Favorites.

Hello everyone,

Welcome back to Foodie February! Today I will be sharing with you my Costco favorites with you, I love going to Costco because you can get everything in bulk. Some items are worth buying, while others not so much. So today I will introduce my favorites, unfortunately, some items were discontinued but some of my other favorites are still in stock.

Let’s begin and enjoy!

 

 

If you need to munch one something sweets and you don’t want to be unhealthy, these dried figs are a great choice. They chewy and delicious.
I love putting walnuts in my salads, granola and smoothie bowls. I cannot recall the price but I think it better to buy this from Costco rather than Bulk Barn.
I love Caesar salads, and of course, croutons are essential. I have discovered that buying a regular bag from the grocery store is not worth it because the bag is half full. Buying a package from Costco is more cost efficient.
I don’t always have time to boil and mash potatoes, so buying a package of these saves me a lot of time.
Annie’s macaroni and cheese, and their crackers are divine. I get a pack of these mac¬†n’ cheese for days when I don’t feel like cooking and I need something quick and easy.
I love quinoa, it is a healthier alternative to rice. This costs around $20 but it is worth it because it lasts me for a long time. 
This is my favorite brand of healthy pasta, regular pasta makes me feel very bloated and sick. So I’ve switched to this one made out of chia, quinoa, and amaranth. It is delicious and even better.
I’m not much a soup lover, but this soup is delicious. If I don’t want to have a heavy dinner, I have this soup instead with some leaf lettuce.

 

 

I’ve been buying this for years and I¬†put it on everything. On my salads, soups and other meals, I cook.
This is my favorite brand of cereal, I discovered it back in 2012 and when I found Costco had it in stock I was absolutely ecstatic. 
I drink green tea a lot so, buying this in bulk is a life savior.
I love these mini quiches, I make them for dinner or for lunches at work with some salad.
Ok, so I know this product has chicken but before I became pescetarian I used to eat this all the time. It was quick and easy to make.
My favorite section in the entire store is the produce section. I buy a lot of items from here.
A bulk of grapes is always a good idea, and here is a tip. If you are craving sweets, take some grapes and freeze them. They will taste like candy. 

 

 

Already chopped broccoli is a time saver, I dislike washing and cutting broccoli so this is great. 
I’m a huge avocado lover when I discovered this guacamole I was so happy. It is delicious, you should all try it!

 

 

Last but certainly not least, it is baby spinach. I buy this for my smoothies and salads. 

Thank you all so much for reading and see you soon!
