Evolution- Kelly Carrero

I just read a really awesome book guys. I read it in a day! This was a really good book that had me hooked. It is called Evolution and it is written by Kelly Carrero.

My Quick Synopsis:
The story follows a girl named Jade Sommers, who has her world turned upside down when she sees a gash in her ear heal up fast right before her eyes. Realizing that something is definitely not right, since everyone was telling her she should have died in what should had been a fatal car crash. Adding to all the craziness going on her best friend gets kidnapped and her mother is running around, avoiding any questions about her best friends disappearance.

Some of the Main Characters:
As I said before this story follows Jade Sommers. Seventeen year old girl who has had her world thrown upside down and realizes that not everything is as it seems. Her boyfriend Aiden Scott is there to help her get through this though, and things are not what it seems to be with him and his family either. He helps her stay strong however, a perfect boyfriend being there for her when she needs him (boys take note). Her mother is running around, and when you do see her she is like a whirl wind of emotions and thought all jumbled up. Her best friend is a lovely girl who sadly goes missing early on and this wracks our protagonists world, sending her into worry and fear over the safety of her friend. We also meet Aiden's siblings, lovely people I would keep an eye open for them ;)

My personal opinion:
I loved this book. I am not being mushy about the awesomeness of this book but stay on your feet when you read this you never know where this will take you. I don't think there was really anything that bothered me about this book but the fact that nosy neighbor didn't come forward about seeing Jade's best friend be kidnapped. The darn woman is too nosy for her own good and if I was Jade that woman would not be too happy with what I would have to tell her.

All together this is an enjoyable book that I think you should if you like something that keeps you guessing and waiting and keeps you thinking. Take a look in the amazon store, I'll post the link for you guys c:

The Mystic Wolves- Belinda Boring

I just finished reading one of the best books I think I have ever read about the canin lupis. It is called The Mystic Wolves written by Belinda Boring. This book pulled me in from the beginning opening into what seems a normal scene like any other for a close knit group like the wolves you will see.
Book Synopsis:

What would you do if a simple errand takes a deadly twist, turning you from cautious prey to dangerous predator? Someone is trying to send a deadly message to Mason, arranging the deaths of those he loves and it puts the entire pack and Alpha on high alert. Darcy understands the primal instincts driving her beloved Mason’s commands. With the help of those he sets as protectors, she learns about herself and the things she’ll need to help support her Alpha and pack. When events turn dire however, one truth offers her strength – once given, oaths are unbreakable … even if it means risking it all.

Book Review: Now this book blew me away guys.i hung on to it, reading it at every chance I could get to. Darcy must face several challenges, having to decide whether to listen to her heart and her as well as the rest of the pack must cope with great loss early on and this carries throughout the whole story. This book really caught me early on, I know I keep saying that but that is one of the things I really want in a good book. If you can kick it home hard in the beginning then you definitely have gotten me hooked and I will not stop until I finish the book to my satisfaction. 
This book contains twists and turns you will love, even the last part of the story will leave you on the edge of your seat, begging to get book 2 which may I add has already been released. It's called forget me not and I will be sure to post the links to book 1 and 2 for your purchase from amazon, barnes and noble, electronic and hard copy.

I want to tell you guys all the amazing things it is that I read about but I don't want to take away all of the thrill you guys will have reading the book.  You definitely need to go and read the first book and where it ends will leave you begging for book 2. I know this isn't the best book review but I give this book 4 out of 5 stars. I will have some better reviews for you guys later.

Later days guys

The Ready Set - For The Better (Dedicated to Taylor Swift) Review

      January 25th, The Ready Set released released their song For The Better (Dedicated to Taylor Swift) and as a description it was said that "Every time a celebrity couple breaks up, we all expect them to get torn apart by tabloids, news sites, and everything in between. Of course that can be entertaining for a while, and nobody expects these relationships to last, but I figured I'd go about presenting my thoughts on the notorious Swift/Styles split in a gentlemanly fashion. You see, I am a gentleman my self- a classic type of fellow. You might even find me sporting a monocle at times. That being said, I like to think of this little song as 'melodic commentary'."

      I like this song personally. It's not one of those break up sad songs that you listen to and cry your eyes out because you understand. This is one of those songs that should give you hope on the future for your love. We all know that Taylor has been through quite a few relations and at one point or another we all think she should try and write a song entitled "Maybe I Am The Problem" but hey you know this is one of those personal opinion type of things. She is a gorgeous female who has a lot of ahead of her. If a guy made you cry, don't stress it beautiful. Pick up your head your tiara is falling. She has so much ahead of her and I think she should focus on her and not some guy.
The music industry is probably not the best place to be when you are looking for someone. Taylor is an amazing person and in the end I hope she remembers that at the end of the day she has tons of fans who love her and will show her support no matter what. This isn't someone who is crazy about her music guys this is just my opinion. I like some of her songs I think she has something great waiting for her and she should always remember that.

This song will give you all hope in the bad times where you get your heart broken, if it's broken now it will help you heal it, if one day you get it broken remember this song. I give the Ready Set extreme props for such an amazing song. :D

Later guys!

Kid Dancing At An NBA Game

      If you haven't heard about it by now, at a NBA game in Indianapolis a young elementary kid stole the show by busting some old school moves. I thought it was cutest little video guys! His mother even tried to stop him at one point but no dice mom, your son is a dancing machine! He ends with an adorable arm flourish and has everyone cheering. If I was there I would go and give that little kid a high five and if I was next to him guess who would had been dancing next to him? Me! I would employ that little boy as my mascot if that were me. I mean he is adorable, he can dance, he stole the show and my heart.

     This little boy had his 50 seconds on fame and let's hope that there are more to come. He pelvic thrusted, moved his little hips, it was too much cuteness for my eyes to handle really. This little boy deserves a serious medal for those awesome moves and let's hope when he sees this video in his teenage years he is just as awesome as he was back then. Though we can be sure he will most likely be too embarrassed by this in the future. XD

Later guys :D

How To Get Warm, No Need To Turn Up The Thermostat

Hey guys! So I was outside not that long ago and I would like to point out... it was freezing cold. I had to pull up both of my hoods and stick my gloveless hands deep into my pockets. I probably looked really weird but hey I didn't freeze to death so it's all good. ^,^ So after this sucky morning experience I decided to share with you guys some good ways to get warm without turning up your thermostat. Give em a try and they will really do the trick for you c:

1. Ceiling Fans In Reverse
    How weird does that sound? Really weird that was what I thought when I heard about this to. If you have your ceiling fans running in the opposite direction however, it will push the warm air back to the ground toward you! How awesome is that?

2. Do some exercise

      I know it just sound so much better to sit there and do nothing. Just kind of huddle under the blankets rather than move, but trust this will work a lot faster. My years taking dance, we do warm ups and even when the room was ridiculously cold we would get warm in no time flat! Perhaps a little too warm -.- So why not jog around for a little bit, try to move around not just in place and then jump into some jumping jacks! Then go into a jog again, try some pushups whatever you feel comfortable doing. Try doing this for about 5-10 minutes and you will warm up considerably.

3. Clench and Unclench your fists
       When your hands get so cold you can barely feel them like mine did earlier, why don't you try clenching and unclenching your fists. It will get the circulation flowing back into your hands in no time.

4. Drink something warm
    This seems like one of those no duh answers to getting warm, but hey it works. Don't go drinking really hot hot chocolate, you will only burn your tongue and I don't think that is the kind of warmth that you want. Get something warm (warm hot chocolate is my favorite) and take a few sips here and there. You will feel it warming up your insides and your outsides in no time.

I know these seem so simple but isn't that the point? I am not going to give you guys something that you have to go out and spend money on. I just want to keep it simple. Later guys! :D

Miley Cyrus Cosmo Cover

If you haven't heard yet, Miley Cyrus is on the cover of the latest Cosmopolitan issue. The once upon a time thought to be a sweet teenager from Disney Channel has apparently really grown up from those stages into a "woman". She has shocked the world once again with this cover, telling that she "never faked anything.  I never played the Disney game of smiling and being a princess and then suddenly having a hard time, saying, That isn't who I really am." 
I remember when she had her brown hair, spoke as Miley Stewart with her sweet southern accent and said "sweet niblets" and now here she is wearing nothing but a blazer and low slung pants. No bra and no shirt, as you can see in the photo below. I do love the new edgy look she has been displaying but is this really who she wants to be? Is this really who she is? I hope she isn't trying to fit in to the new group of celebrities who have that outgoing style you can never expect *cough* Lady Gaga *cough*. I hope she is strong enough to take the criticism we can be sure that she is going to get from people who don't approve and there seems to be more of those around these days. 
Personally I don't feel like it should really be her new look at her age, but if she is rocking it and loving it then by all means embrace who you are! :D Be fierce and never let anyone tell you differently.

Midterm are over, So here are some good ways to relax

So I just finished My Midterms and may I just say, thank goodness they are finally over! They were so stressful and I had 7 of them plus a big midterm project in place of an actual midterm. It was all worth it though when yesterday we showcased our projects to classmates and faculty and we got cake! I think that was really what I was excited for, all the snacks and food. Midterms are a lot of stress on everyone, from the parents having to deal with their over stressed children to the students themselves who are freaking out about getting good grades. So here are some good ways for you guys to unwind and relax after all of the stress you just endured. Just remember that you made it guys! :D

1. Splurge on something sweet.
          There is nothing wrong with having a little, treat your little guilty pleasure. Mine is chocolate, I am crazy about chocolate. It makes me mroe hyper than I already am and I actually feel bad for the people who have to deal with me once the suger kicks in. So just take a deep breath and grab some sort of candy, chocolate or sweet that you really enjoy but haven't been able to enjoy due to all the stress. Revel in the delicious taste and relax your shoulders, let yourself smile. Trust me, you will feel a lot more relaxed in more time. Make sure to have some more of your treat nearby, trust me stopping at one is not going to be easy.

2. Meditate
          I know this is one of those overrated things for someone to say but hey it actually works. You don't have to sit there and go "oommmmmmm" for like 45 minutes, I tried one time and I ended up laughing like I was crazy. Just find someplace comfortable for you where it is quiet, and focus on your breathing. Focusing on something else besides whatever has you stressed will help you a lot in the long run. So just take a deep breath in, and now let it out. Now don't you feel a little better? :)

3. Stress Ball
       Those things seem to be only for crazy people, but hey aren't we all a little crazy? They actually work to relieve your stress, especially if sometimes you get to stressed your body cannot stop shaking like mine does sometimes. It doesn't even have to be a real one, get a bean bag, a squishy teddy bear, just something soft and give it a good squeeze.

4. Simple Stretches to even Yoga
       Just let your body get lose guys! Reach for your toes, stretch out your arms, whatever you feel comfortable doing. Heck, if you want a little more why not try some yoga? Your mind is not only overloaded with stress but your body is as well and just a little stretch here and there can help relieve the muscle stiffness you probably now notice you have,

5. Play your favorite song and Dance!
      Dancing is one of the big stress relievers. Whether you listen to Britney Spears, Eminem, Bless the Fall, Bon Jovi, whatever just get your favorite playlist and get a little silly and dance. For slow songs pretend to dance with someone like in a ballroom, it may sound silly but it's fun and you will find yourself smiling and feeling great.

6. Favorite Smell
      We all have that one scent that we love. I love the smell of vanilla, and giving something vanilla scented a smell can trigger a happy thought into my head into your head from the memories you probably have associated with it. You will feel great and smile, remembering all of those good times and what they mean to you.

Those are the main things it is that I do when I get over stressed and just need to relax. I suppose that relaxing works for everyone and there is no harm in trying my methods. You will be surprised to learn that these simple things will help loosen you up and smile that amazing smile of yours. :) Later guys!

Bruno Mars- Unorthodox Jukebox Review

One of the albums the albums that was released late in 2012, December 6th being the official release date, was Unothodox Jukebok by Bruno Mars. I have to say this album blew me away when I first heard it. My three favorite songs from the album being

1. Gorilla
2. Natalie
3. Locked Out Of Heaven
When Locked out of heaven hit the airwaves it started at number 34 on the Billboard Hot 100. It seems to have now settled into its spot at the moment as #2, as shown to me by Spotify :P. By far though, Gorilla is my favorite song with Natalie coming in as a close second. It is a sensual song that you could really get into, the kind of music I am really not into these days but this song got me fast when first suggested to me by a friend. This album featured a lot of great songs including the ones listed and I will be sure to list the full album song list below so you guys can go and check em out if you haven't already. I highly recommend it to anyone who likes pop, r&b, Rock, soul and reggae music. If you like any of these there is at least one song on this album you will love and you won't be able to resist taking a listen at the others.

Album Track List:
1. Young Girls
2. Locked Out Of Heaven
3. Gorilla
4. Treasure
5. Moonshine
6. When I Was Your Man
7. Natalie
8. Show Me
9. Money Make Her Smile
10. If I Knew
