Favourites Friday #16

Welcome to another Favourites Friday!

I’m rounding out this 2nd week of midterms with some exhaustion and a serious up in my makeup skills as I pretend to not look like a caffeine-driven zombie. I started out this week spending some time in my favourite tea shop with the boo doing some homework, continued doing even more homework and beginning essays, and ended it in full-bloom essay writing and not nearly enough green tea in my system. So, as you can tell, it’s been a real midterms week.

This week’s favourites focus on the essentials – and the rewards – of midterms week. And even though each term is different, these five favourites can be applied every term. So let’s check them out!Read More

Song Saturday: Best of this Week

Song Saturday

Hiya Enthusiasts! It’s Song Saturday for Everyday Enthusiasm and what better way to kick this off than reviewing iTunes Top 10 Songs this week? I’m a music buff, I won’t lie, and I think it’s time I reviewed some music that isn’t my favourite. Let’s see what happened…Read More

The "Midterms Are Coming" Playlist

As I look at my calendar I notice that midterms are coming, and that means there are projects and tests galore. And as someone who loves to listen to a good tune while strapped down with my laptop and class notes, I figured it was time I put together a playlist for midterm studying. And who better to share it with than you guys?

Musing Mondays 3: Cali Trip 2k14

Everyday Enthusiasm Day 15: Musing Mondays

Musing Mondays

Hola Enthusiasts! I am back and in action after a seriously awesome vacation! My face broke out, I gained weight from onion rings, and my feet hurt from so much walking. So you know it was a good holiday!

If you live under a rock, you may be unaware of where I’ve been the past few days: LA. My bestest buddies and I decided (okay, there were 9 months of planning) to head down to LA for a few days of intense awesomeness. There was making enemies with fangirls, seeing a handful of amazing artists in six hours, and spending way too much time in airports. Pretty much the perfect vacation, huh? So, in true Musing Mondays fashion, I am going to be reflecting on this wondrous holiday in a play-by-play of my LA trip. (Warning: this post is ridiculously full of info, so sorry in advance for writing a novel. I promise it’s in equal awesomeness to Hunger Games.)

Cali Trip 2k14
(aka, the time I spent a lot of time with attractive boys on stage)


Wednesday was the day it all kicked off! A 3am wake up call started the day for a car trip with the ever favourite Alex. The morning was uneventful, unless you count me kneeling in a dress scrambling to find my plastic liquids bag, or the TSA agent delivering me my scarf in a doggie bowl.

During our layover, we met up with the rest of our girlies for our flight to California. They are kind of my favourites.

Left to right: Miranda, Kelsi, yours truly, Estefany, Alex.  We actually all look decent.

Fave Fridays

Morgan’s Friday Favourites

Boca burgers

As you know from this post, I am now test-driving a vegetarian lifestyle. When I was a young ‘un, my mother would make Boca burgers for me and I just loved them. And since I am going for that veggie life, these are the perfect way to get my burger on without consuming any meat. They are delicious and I’ve even turned a few of my friends onto them. I like to eat them for lunch with a sandwich thin (it’s a kind of bread), some cheese, spinach, and ketchup. Bon appétit!Read More

I’ve talked about this album a lot (because I’m borderline obsessed with it) and am constantly telling my friends which songs I love. So when my friend suggested I do a review of One Direction’s new album “Midnight Memories,” well, I just couldn’t resist. So here is my review of their new album!

1. Best Song Ever

The title says it all. It is the best song ever. It’s catchy and fun and a great song for just letting go over the summer. It’s almost impossible to not just start dancing when this song comes over the speakers. Each verse has some funny memorable line and the chorus is catchy. It is typical boy band, but let’s face it, that’s what they are and that’s part of the reason we like them. It’s hard not to like boy bands. This song is just adorable and fun.

Artists I Know You’ll Love

Let’s talk about music. We all have different tastes. Only the other day I posted in the Facebook group for my freshman class what kind of music everyone likes and no two people had the same answers. We are all attracted to different genres and voices and lyrics. And so I thought today I’d share with you some music that I love that I think you might like too.

I Listen to a Lot of British Artists: A Musical Compositon


If you don’t love Adele, I don’t want to breathe the same air as you. She has more soul than I thought was possible and her music is beautiful.

Andy Grammar

This man just makes the best music. My friend Kelsi and I will play his station on Slacker whenever we go on long drives. Andy makes catchy music that has a great message.

The Beatles

Need I say anything? It’s the Beatles.
