  • October Wrap Up!

    october-wrap-up

    WRAP UP TIME! *Happy Halloween BTW*

    So I love to read these types of posts and I used to do something like this but you know what I want to make it more of a thing here so… GUESS THIS IS THE START!

    WHAT I READ IN OCTOBER 

    Finding Audrey by Sophie Kinsella– ★★★★★ (MY REVIEW!)
    Absolutely LOVED this book. Was so into it that I got through it within a day and a bit!
    SO GOOD a must read!

    How My Summer Went Up In Flames by Jennifer Salvato Doktorski – ★★★☆☆
    Interesting read, there were so many ways the book could have gone and it made wonder what the author was going to do. Honestly a little disappointed in the end but a good read between classes!

    What Movies/Television Shows I Watched 

    Greys Anatomy – I literally started Greys on the first of this month and I am on the 5th episode of the 5th season, If that doesn’t explain how much I LOVE IT, I don’t know what will. Seriously people if you are one of the final people on earth who have not got a look at McDreamy then you are missing out
    Be somebody– Honestly only watched this movie because It had vine star Matthew Espinosa. Although I did really enjoy it and was surprised by his acting skills this movie reminded of Starstruck also known as the movie I watched at age 10 hah (ANYONE ELSE FIND THE SIMILARITIES UNCANNY)
    Halloween Town #1,#2 – Come on you can’t go through October without watching Halloween town! Still one of my faves!
    ATM – My sister literally made me watch this movie Saturday night, It was a good movie and very tense. Also Josh Peck was in it so instantly I was intrigued of course 😉 If your looking for more of a thriller rather than horror this is for you.

    What I did in October 

    BUFFER FESTIVAL – Although this month was mainly focused on school (and greys of course) I was lucky enough to get my hands on tickets to the Daily Vlogger Screening at Buffer Fest in Toronto this month! Got to go see people like Shay Carl, Estee Lalonde, Jenna Marbles, Julien Solomita, Louis Cole and so many other amazing creators! Had a great time and even saw a woman with her pug in a stroller, you know typical Toronto things haha

Also CAN I MENTION HOW CONSISTENT AT POSTING THIS GIRL IS!?!?! HOWWWW DO YOU DO IT??

  • My Time In Niagara Falls

    Screen Shot 2016-09-03 at 11.37.14 AM

    Hey Hey Hey,

    So as I’m writing this its my last day of summer vacation… oh gosh. So as a close for my summer blog posts I thought I would share some pictures of a small 2 day vacation I took with my mom and sister. We got to go down to Niagara Falls/ Niagara-on-the-lake, which I haven’t done in years. It was absolutely beautiful. I would definitely recommend Niagara on the lake to anyone who is not really into the fast paced feel of the Niagara streets. Hope you enjoy scrolling through some of these photos :))))

  • Procrastination.

    ProcrastinationOh look who’s back.
    The lazy girl who can’t bother to put up a post in over a month.

    I am so so sorry!
    Honestly over this summer I have been hit with writers block and been procrastinating everything that I once loved doing. INCLUDING READING! LIKE WHAT? I USUALLY READ LIKE 4 BOOKS A MONTH?! LAST MONTH ZERO!

    This seems to be recurring aswell. I have a burst of inspiration for about 3 weeks and then I go off the face of the earth in terms of my blog, youtube channel, and certain social media.

    This is super hard for me because there is this nagging feeling in the back of my mind saying Lauryn. Stop sitting around watching netflix for half your life and actually do something.

    Lets do a quick catch up session in a few sentences.
    I finished summer school (not because i failed, just wanted to get ahead), been hiding in my room messaging and skyping my friends, and the few days that I did happen to leave the house I get a sunburn and green chlorine filled hair. Oh Gosh.

    I am hoping this month I can stop putting off making content for you all and actual make something that will interest you!

    I also feel like I need to put a lot more of myself into my writing. You guys are seriously missing out on all the avocado loving, avid music listening, and pickle addict side of me.

    About a week ago I put up a new video on my youtube channel as part of a new series i’m starting involving other peoples poetry. If you are at all interested i’ll leave the link here.

    Anyway that is all I have to say right now, I am going to be trying my hardest to get at LEAST 1 post up a week, hopefully more, for you all. I hope you are all excited for the new content coming, especially something secret next month… hehe.

    Love you all! xoxo
