Happy Christmas, everybody! I hope you’re currently enjoying the holidays with your family/loved ones! 🙂
Today, I am starting a new blog series where I’m going to share my weekly pop culture picks and random reflections. This is going to replace my Sunday Soupie series from a year ago (wait, what? THAT WAS A YEAR AGO?!), and going to be kind of like a more broken down version of H.I.T.s. (Ooh, I can already see where the problem is going to be, lol.) It’s also probably always going to be posted on a Saturday, thus the change of name.
A lot of my goals for 2016 were knowledge expansion-related, but since I didn’t get to completely finish my goals this year, I’m hoping this will really push me to actually read or discover new music or whatevs. Just hoping to get back to my 2012 self creativity-wise, really. Also hoping to get some recommendations from all y’allz in the future. 😀
ANYWAY! ON TO IT!
I bought this on a whim last week just because it had the word BLOG on the cover and featured Kryz Uy, whose style I have been following online for a few years now.
I enjoyed reading this book, surprisingly. I didn’t really know what to expect as I wasn’t exactly up-to-date on the fact that she had written one. (I rarely check my Feedly nowadays.) There were a few typos here and there, but I really liked how casual the tone was and how easy it was to read. It was basically like reading her blog, but with the addition of anecdotes you wouldn’t usually share online. It’s amusing. And you get to see a side of Kryz that you wouldn’t normally see/read on her blog. Plus, she shares some social media tips! 🙂
This book has left me inspired, to say the least. 🙂
I am loving the Moana soundtrack right now, especially these two songs:
You’re Welcome is so witty, I love it so much. How Far I’ll Go, on the other hand, is so inspiring. And I love how the song I Am Moana ties up with that. Huhu. Moana was such a great movie. Disney, y u lyk dis.
I’ve honestly been so into watching the Travis family’s daily vlogs lately. Especially this month, which is #Dancember month. (By the way, they’re like, 25K away from achieving their goal of feeding a whole stadium of kids! Help this cause out by clicking this link!)
Anyway, they’re totally #FamGoals. And I’ve enjoyed watching their Philippine trip vlogs (Judy is Filipina).
The video I super love for this week, though, is from my college friend, Gino.
SURPRISE, SURPRISE, IT’S MOANA-RELATED. LOL. #noregrets
His dance moves are always legit, but paired with this song, AHHHHH!!! Check it out! 😀
That’s it for me this week. 😀 Please send me stuff (books/music/videos/whatever) to check out if you can! Thanks! 😀
