I was feeling bad last night so finding a lot of good books today was a thrill for me. I also found Jeanette Winterson’s Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit, Robin McKinley’s Beauty and Tamora Pierce’s First Test.
I really got lucky finding these books and I want to savor reading them!
I have read three memoirs by three funny ladies: Tina Fey, Amy Poehler and Felicia Day. The first two were underwhelming, the last one was slightly better because I have a soft heart for Felicia Day who I have religiously followed her Vaginal Fantasy podcasts for more than 4 years.
Mindy Kaling’s book Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? has been released for quite some time and her third book was just released last month. I used to read her blog before but my unfortunate encounter with memoirs from comediennes have turned me off from reading any of Kaling’s books. Also recently released was Amy Schumer’s book while Anna Kendrick is coming out next month. I have learned my lesson, no more memoirs from funny people who are still alive because I don’t them funny at all!
This was so funny! I think Louis XIV has the best hair in the series. You can get mesmerized with all that hair (and of course sex)!
This needed more mint but at P18.50 it is a steal. Filling Christmassy!
I know this is a highly fictionalized and romanticized version of Prince Albert of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha. I have heard and extreme versions of Prince Albert as a controlling husband, a strict father, etc. However in the Victoria the television series, I can’t help but fall for Tom Hughes’ Prince Albert. He is romantic, devoted, progressive, dutiful and always finding ways to prove himself.
I look forward to this series especially the scenes between Victoria and Albert. I don’t know how long the series will take the story. Until Albert’s death or until Victoria’s death?
Reading from my iPad mini is a strain on the eyes, I really need to move on to another device. Since 95% of the time I use my iPad mini as an ereader, I might as well get a Kindle right? However I have never physically come across a Kindle so I don’t know if I would like it. Can I still open the ebooks I have in my laptop? I am still thinking and thinking.
It has been almost two months since I had no chicken, pork or beef. I want to shake things up again like eating less carbs (no more bread, noodles or pasta) which is what I fall back to days when I feel stressed or I don’t have a lot of options.
I still need to plan before I start with the next phase. Need to find more motivation especially with the temptations I find every where.
This is pretty useful for the problems that I always have every month. I wonder if these work on really old stains.
Do vision boards really work? I don’t know so this is my experiment.
I already posted my the first picture for my vision board in Facebook. What does it mean, I am not exactly sure. Is it coffee? Work? Or?
One thing I really want do again is travel. I want to travel again. I am inspired to go to any of the Nordic countries. One is Sweden. I don’t really have an idea of what Sweden looks like except for two. The first one is Nyhavn where I saw a video of Kino McGregor doing Ashtanga in front of the people who just ignored her. That video also showcased her chanting the opening chant.
Another Swedish image implanted in my mind is the rapeseed field in the first Wallander episode, the one with Kenneth Branagh. I would love to visit the countryside: Ystad, Malmo, Skane, Smaland, etc. All those places mentioned in the books!
