Things that are mainstream or in trend during this time. (So I can see what kind of things people were doing, and were into for the purpose of analyzing how much the future has changed compared to the past.)

“Tsum tsum”

So my roommates introduced me to something pretty amazing.

Holy moly
I am very aware of my age and HOLY I FEEL NO SHAME. Lol these are so cute. (I don’t really like the human tsum tsum though…except for alice in Wonderland, shes cute)
To my defense, there are a lot of other people that are around my age and have an obsession with them as well.

The real question is, what is the correct way to pronounce tsum tsum??
Tzoom? Tsom? I feel like tsu•om? Haha

Urban Outfitter’s ans Brandy Melville

Lately, I’ve been liking the clothing stores Urban Outfitter’s and Brandy Melville a lot. However, I must admit they are expensive. It may not be much for others but personally, I don’t think it’s very cheap. The quality of them seems worth it though. Still, I am a skint university student (lol) and I choose to go to the clearance/sale section first. Sadly brandy melville doesn’t have sections like that from the store I go to. But hey, there’s nothing wrong with window shopping. It gives me ideas and designs. So that I can buy something similar to it from the other store. IF I like them. (DIY)

I think I started liking Urban Outfitter and Brandy Melville especially because of their instagram feed. They always post such nice pictures. Yeah. I think that’s what got me interested in their store more. Wow. That advertising though. Sure did work it’s magic on me.

Tapestry

I’m not sure what’s gotten into me, but I am absolutely in love with tapestries. They are designed fabric/blanket that you can use to hang it up on the wall. But honestly, they can literally be used for bunch of other stuff. You can use them for a picnic table, scarf, beach blanket, cardigan (?) Haha. (I’m definitely going to use it as cardigan because it gives that bohemian look. Although it might be too big actually…)
Basically though, it is mainly for wall hanging. Decoration for your room. I finally ordered one online!

It’s really expensive. Luckily, I found it for a much cheaper price online elsewhere! DON’T YOU THINK IT’S BEAUTIFUL? LIKE I CAN’T EVEN.
Haha.
But seriously, it’s been trending at a few places and I got interested and BOOM. I fell in love with them as well. From what I believe (don’t quote me on this,) I think they are originated from India. Mine is shipped from India. ♡ Hehe.
I’m probably going to purchase more in the future. I already want this zodiac designed tapestry as well. Lol.
But maybe next time because tuition payment comes first.
Gonna save up some money.

Playlist June 17

Okay, I think it’s been like four months(?) since I last wrote down my favorite songs…or perhaps longer… So here’s my favorites at the moment.

1. I Will Never Let You Down – Rita Ora
2. Night and Day – Wheesung
3. We Found Love – Rihanna
4. B Team – Marianas Trench
5. Celebrity Status – Marianas Trench
6. You Deserve Better – Verbal Jint
7. Good Morning – Verbal Jint
8. Grotesque ft. Namie Amuro – Ken Hirai
9. Sweater Weather – The Neighborhood
10. Goodnight Kiss – Jun Hyoseong
11. Some ft. Lil Boi of Geeks – Soyu
12. Problem – Ariana Grande
13. Right There – Ariana Grande
14. You’ll Never Know – Ariana Grande
15. Say Something ft. Christina Auilera – A great big world
16. Classic – MKTO

As you can tell, this playlist is obviously a mix of english songs, korean songs, and with one japanese song. I’ve been listening to a mix of cultural songs lately. Haha.
I heard some of these songs from the radio and fell in love with them. And as you can tell, as always, I’m obsessing with Ariana Grande’s songs. Some of these songs aren’t exactly new. It’s just I like listening to them now and then and I fall in love with them all over again. I’m especially in love with Wheesung and Verbal Jint’s songs. The song “Night and Day” by Wheesung and “Good Morning” and “You Deserve Better” by Verbal Jint, I fell in love with these songs after hearing them only once. Haha. Wheesung’s song and voice, as always, great to listen to. Verbal Jint’s songs…”Good Morning” it’s so nice. (Yeah, why can’t someone text ME “Good Morning”?? Hahahahahahahahaha…*Cries*)

There was a phase when I only listened to “Sweater Weather” for a long period of time during the day… or at night when I couldn’t fall asleep. (Presently, it’s also the ringtone for my cell phone.) And as always, I have to listen to band songs. At the moment, I like Maraianas Trench, but I also love The Pretty Reckless and The Cab. (Pretty sure there’s a lot of other bands that I like. I just can’t think right now.)

As for the rest of the songs, I found them on youtube or was reminded by my sister or my friends so I listened to them again.

I mostly listen to songs when I’m brushing my teeth or when I can’t fall asleep. Or when I’m bored and have nothing to do really… or when I’m just chilling. What would I do without music?

Oh right, and dear future me, most of these songs are popular. (Right now, it’s 2014…although few of these songs might not be from 2014.) Wonder what kinds of songs you listen to now. Not too much auto-toned or electric songs I hope. haha. I mean I’ve always liked a lot of acoustic songs too anyways… you still do right?
