Band(s) of The Week: Train, One Direction.

Rock, Pop rock, Roots rock, Adult alternative.
 So this one is kinda Band of Forever, since I have loved Train for a while now. But recently I started really listening to their most recent album, California 37, and as usual, loved it. The first three links are from California 37, the second are just some of my favorites in general. I highly, highly recommend listening to their full album, Save Me San Francisco.

This'll Be My Year
Drive By

This Ain't Goodbye
Marry Me

One Direction
Dance pop, pop rock, power pop, brilliance.
 My boys. I've loved them since day 1, and this week they released their second studio album, Take Me Home. I can not describe how much I love them.

Last First Kiss
Gotta Be You
Little Things
C'mon C'mon

Artist(s) of The Week: Taylor Swift.
Pop, pop rock, country, country pop.
 Another Favorite of Forever, I adore Taylor Swift to no end. She is an incredible lyricist, singer, and the way she conveys emotion is amazing. Her new album Red is a fabulous addition to the collection.

New segment time! Music Time (Most orig name ever.)

So basically, Music Time involves me gushing about the music I love at the moment, and you (hopefully) clicking the links and such. It will be weeklyish. (Intriguing, I know...)

So, here goes.

Band(s) of The Week: The Script. 
 Indie Pop/Alternative Rock/Pop Rock
 The vocals are brilliant, Danny (Lead singer) has a beautiful and unique tone, and both Glen (drummer) and Mark (guitarist) can definitely sing.

 Artist(s) of The Week: Olly Murs, Ed Sheeran.

Olly Murs
Pop/Reggae Fusion/Ska/Dance/Soul
 ...Still with me? Olly really is unique, pop, but really unique, dancey, huge smile on your face pop. A mood booster for sure. Fun fact, Olly won second place on the 6th season of The X Factor UK, one of my favorite shows. As of today, he is much more successful than the winner, Joe McElderry.

Ed Sheeran
 Ed is absolutely brilliant. I cannot for the life of me describe how amazing he is, so I'll leave it to him.

The Females are a bit different this week, they aren't regular recording artists, but artists nontheless.

Ella Henderson
X Factor UK contestant.
Ella has this amazingly powerful, emotional voice. Delicious to listen to.

Jade Ellis
Another X Factor UK contestant
Jade has this soul and raw tone to her voice that is so unique.

Random song(s)

Hey L.A. - Ryan Beatty
We Could Be Anything - Nolan Sotillo
Angie - Rolling Stones

Thanks for bearing with me, hopefully that was enjoyable/informative.

Sup dizzles?

So the lovely Louise ( ) has been doing these Love Of The Day posts, and I wanted to hop on the bandwagon!

Today is Sunday, and Sunday is Etsy.

Today's Etsy love is definitely Custom Converse. I can't even choose just one pair, they are all so cool! The Mockingjay pair is amazingly amazing, and the One Direction pair, and the various Harry Potter ones, and.... ALL OF THEM!

Anyway, I love Converse, so this store makes me drool.

Long vs Short

So how is this lovely day treating you?

I wanted to discuss short nail vs. long nails today, and why I love each :)

So in general, my nail grow pretty quickly, so I have long nails most of the time, meaning that when I do get around to cutting them, it feels really weird, especially to type!
  Also, I  don't like the way my fingers look with short nails, I feel like they look shorter and chubbier, even though it's probably partially the contrast between long and short.
  On the other hand, there are some colors that I won't wear when my nails are long, for instance red, because a. I think it can tend to look tacky (no offense!), and b. I love the way short red nails look! There's something so effortless and trying while not trying-ish about it. Do I sound bananas? Probably.

Anyway, there are definitely pros and cons with long and short nails, but really, you should wear whatever tickles your tomato, and leave it at that.

My Nail Polish Obsession

So I recently watched a tag video that SparkliebarbieXO made on nail polish, so naturally I had to join in the fun, but seeing as I don't do YouTube, I decided to do it in a blog post :)

1. What's your favorite nail polish company?
OPI! But In general, as long as it is good quality, brand is not that important to me... Still, OPI...

2. Glitter or no glitter?
Oooooh... I'm kind of a sucker for sparkly stuff, but removing glitter polish is such a pain!

3. OPI, China Glaze, or Essie?
Definitely OPI :)

4. When do you change your nail polish?
I used to change it really often, but since ballet is five days a week, I probably change it once a week to every other week. Also, I don't like using up a lot of polish.

5. What's your favorite color on your nails?
I love all colors... With nail polish I don't discriminate... But I really like OPI's Red My Fortune Cookie with my skin tone.

6. Darks or Brights?
Gosh... Both! But I really like dark colors.

7. What are you wearing on your nails right this moment?
I'm actually going to do a NOTD post on this, but I have nail art, with Red My Fortune Cookie as the base.

8. Matte Nails--In or Out?
In. But I have yet to jump on the bandwagon.

9. French Manicure?

10. Favorite Winter Color?
I personally think that colors don't have to fit in with the particular season, be it winter, spring, summer, or fall. But I really like dark purples any time of the year!

So that's it! I hope you enjoyed learning about my obsession, and if you are the same, please let me know! We can go to Triple A meetings together! (Does anybody else watch GloZell? Love her!)

Guess what?!

I have two new obsessions in addition to the rest...!

Let's start with Jamie Campbell Bower (aka King Awesome).
Fact #1. JCB was in both Harry Potter and Twilight. In HP DHP1, he played the young Gellert Grindelwald. In The Twilight Saga, he plays Caius of the Volturi (the blond one). I LOVE TWILIGHT!

Fact #2 JCB once admitted that he loves One Direction's single, What Makes You Beautiful. (I gushed about them HERE) I LOVE ONE DIRECTION!

Fact #3 JCB's tweets are hilarious. He cracks me up. Here's the link to his Twitter , but please only follow him if you are 18 or older, as he does swear sometimes...

Fact #4 JCB watches X Factor. I LOVE X FACTOR!

Which leads me to my next obsession, Craig Colton.

Craig Colton, aka DREAMVOICE, is 23 years old from Liverpool. He has one of the most beautiful voices EVER. HERE is him singing Adele's Set Fire To The Rain. Beautiful...just.... beautiful.

That is all.

Mmmm, Fall...

Hey y'all :) How ares ya?

When I think of fall, I think of scarves, deep wine and berry colors, and Uggs. Speaking of scarves, what kind do you like? I'm not very picky with scarves, but I do enjoy thick knit ones :) (Isn't this purple one divine?)

And another thing, what color comes to mind when you think berry? My mind immediately goes to OPI's Houston We Have A Purple, which is one of my all time favorites.

So, I know this was a short post, but I was in a fall-ish mood and wanted to share it with you guys :)

Tell me what you think of when you think fall in the comments.
