6 Gifts for an 18th Birthday (List Made by a 16 year old)

It's the time of the year when my birthday is coming. I've rarely been able to say what I want for my birthday, so I decided to start real early for this list as my 18th birhday is quite important. So, today I am 16 and starting my list for my birthday. I'm going to schedule the date of post and will probably forget all about it. SO, yeah...

But this can be a quide of what to give to your 18th buddy to! Imagine he/she is talking to you about what they want!

Here we go (remember to click on the photos to follow the links, bae):

1. My Life, kikki.K - $39.95

 My Life

I thought that something to organise myself for my adult self would be quite good, and what better than a kikki.K. This is great to organise everything, but one of their time planners in addition would be marvelous.

2. A DIY scrapbook

Best Friends

A scrapbook of my 18 years on this earth, or of my years of friendships with you - it would heartwarming and beautiful 'cause I love you!

2. 18th Birthday Wish Jar - DIY or £14.95

Wish Jar

This one you can DIY or buy it! Either way it's adorable and so pinterest!

3. Made in 1999 - 20€

Made in 1999

Remember 1999! Love it! It's simple yet effective! And it isn't a tee-shirt saying something like I'm 18 'cause I'm not going to be 18 forever...

4. 18th Necklace - 18.95€

5. Music compilation/plyalist

A compilation with songs with my name in every song, or the songs you know I love, or the songs we share, or even the songs for wherever I'm heading to - if it's universaty, travelling or working! It will be perfect!

6. Generally Etsy

Etsy

I don't know about you but I love Etsy! You can look at my wishlist or favourites for inspiration!

How To Be A Woman, Caitlin Moran

This book is before anything honest and down right sexy, and my first feminist novel read.

A feminist book has never been more relaxed, funny and shocking in a paragraph. Reading it you have the feeling that you are listening to a human. Obviously she is also an author - you can see it in the fluidity of her writing - but she isn't an essayist.

She is simply analysing her life with a feminist perspective.

She exclaims that we need more pornography (for more choice), that it is important for a woman (and men) to say out loud : "I'm a feminist!". Go on, I'll wait for ya! Say it!

This book, I had found it a couple of years ago in our library. I had started it, but after a page and a half I already had enough. It's really bizarre to think of it now that this book has basically become my witty Bible, like The Female Eunuch is for Caitlin Moran and many other women. I imagine I was not ready, as I am not ready today for Germaine Greer's book.

Taking this into account I understand that not every woman has read How to be a woman, but hey! The title says it all! I'm convinced every woman should read it even if it is just for the humour! Following this, I'm guessing that every girl should read How To Build A Girl which is why it is on my to be read (tbr) list!

Animal Farm

A review of Animal Farm by George Orwell

Animal Farm

✮✮✮✮✮

This is one of those must reads that you hear about constantly at school. People will present it to you at least once a year. I'm not attacking this at all, look up, I put a five stars onto it! The fact that people talk and talk about it somehow forces you upon reading it, if school hasn't already - and I think it's a great thing. It gives such a good insight in how people can be driven into blindness in totalitarian entities, all with such a simplistic flow of words that create the perfect context, characters and plots that are Animal Farm.
I knew the story from all the presentations I mentioned previously. I had seen the cartoon/movie plenty of times, I even recall demanding to see it again, and again as a little kid, even though it made me cry and is a pretty frightening movie - it left such a vivid images of it that I kept having as I read Orwell's words. But even with all the knowledge I had on Animal Farm, the book was a great treat. And it might just be me but it was much more lighter than the movie. Easier, but don't get me wrong the movie is amazing!
So, hum, in conclusion I'm recommending both the movie and the book to everyone! :)

Xoxo,

Cacti

Hey blogphiles* !

The other day I ventured out into the open world and went to a plant shop (Botanic). There I found a table filled with tiny cacti - so I obviously looked around - getting spiked on the way - to fall in love with 3 (non-spiky) cacti. I then proceeded to choose three classy yet simple assorting pots for them...

The result was really insta-worthy:

Artoyz, a bracelet and a movie!

Warning the following text is jokingly criticising the specificity in which some people analyse “works of art”. Do not take it in a bad way, I am not trying to hurt any one. I personally have analysed some art works and love doing it, but sometimes these analyses are pushed to the extreme…

If a professor of history of art would come along and see it without being told by whom it was made - maybe a brilliant artist or a simple weaver from a deserted plain… The Professor would analyse it thoroughly and he/she would probably come to this conclusion:

July Favorites!

  I have already done a post a little like this called Lately... - except it wasn't favorites in the span of a month. This post is directly inspired by Zoella’s Monthly Favorite videos - except that this post is not on one specific subject - it is on three: Fashion, Music, High-Tech, and Literature.

Fashion

Polka Dot Outfit: The other day as it was the sales I asked my father to bring me to Jennifer (the closest good fashion store). I came out of their with a new favorite polka dot dress, and a little white laced vest - both items being on sale. I have been wearing them together with a black hat. I can definitely say that it is my OOTM.

Wish Jar

This is pretty much a continuation of a previous post: Paper Stars. After having written the post etc. I started to think And one thing led to the other and I got the idea of a wishing jar ( I'm not saying I'm the first). I decided to get a glass jar, and put a chalkboard banner.

The result is really nice, and cute I think:

Now I just need to fill it!

Comment below if you want more DIYs!

Paper Stars

  I have been obsessing about stars ever since the annoucement that the Fault In Our Stars was becoming a movie (which means a long time since the movie is out pretty much everywhere in the world except France)! So since this very day I have been talking about the movie like an excited fan! even if the movie is only coming out 20th August, and I am probably not going to see it at the cinema for fear of crying lamentably (I cried watching the trailer just to give you some insight).

  All that to say that I am hyped about the movie, and that I have some DIYs:

Paper Stars

  I then put 3 stars with tac on my shelf (over FIOS) with 2 different sizes, one big, two small, and I think it looks really good.

Paper Stars

  With these you can make so many and put them into a jar, to make it look like sweets etc. Or you can put quotes in them etc.

Dr Who and stuff!

When I was in England last (end of May- beginning of April ie. ages ago) for a week with school we went to Stratford-Upon-Avon the birth place of the most famous William in the world, Shakespeare.

Now you must be wondering why is the title 'Dr Who and stuff' if it's in Startford?

Well, my dear reader, in Stratford there is a store called Time Warp which is like no other place I have ever been in. It is a place where all kinds of geekly awesome merchandises are awaiting for a fan like a Whovian, South-Parkians*, Muppetians* etc. (*I have no idea what there fandom name are).

Book Week: Day #4

The Lunar Chronicles

by Marissa Meyer

fan art.Fan ArtFan Art

2 books out. 2 Up coming.

The Lunar Chronicles Series is basically fairy tales revisited (put into the futur).

Except that it is so much more. Plots intertiwne etc. It is so beautifully written!

Cinder is a cyborg who is a gifted mechanical in New Beijing. And like Cinderella she has an evil stepmother, and two stepsisters... Her life gets expentently entwined with the Prince, except that it is a bit more complicated than that... I will let you discover why, and how...

In Scarlet (Red Riding Hood), we continue to have the Cinder story-line, whilst having the all remarkable Scarlet story. 

In both of the books the romantic stories are complicated, but magically beautiful. You just don't want it to end!

Thankfully Cress is coming out this year! (pre-ordered of course!

And then Winter in 2015! (also pre-ordered)

It's a love story between me and those books!
