I Need Help!

To my readers,

 

I’m lucky to have amazing readers which is why I want to ask for your opinions / suggestions regarding a product that I’m thinking of purchasing. It’s a hyaluronic acid serum – acts like a moisturizer, thus making skin softer and silkier – from a newly launched skincare company called Joy & Karma. According to the reviews that I’ve read on its Amazon page, it’s a pretty decent option if you’re looking to add this serum to your daily routine. The price also seems to be fairly reasonable.

What I want to know is if any of you have tried this for yourself. Please comment below. I’m open to suggestions!

 

Thank you in advance,

Cams

I’m Not Hating On Anyone

I’m not a hateful person or mean but I just have to be honest here and say that I truly don’t like Ariana Grande. Please don’t me guys but I’m just not a fan of her music. Her voice, although quite a big range, I also don’t like and it’s mostly because it’s too Disney sounding. Yes, I know she’s not a Disney star but you know what I mean (or maybe you don’t). The point is that I’m just not a fan of hers. I’m not hating on her per se so don’t you guys start hating on me. *peace*

Having said that, I recently found out that she has a song with Zedd! I mean, SERIOUSLY?! Oh boy. I don’t know what else to say to this other than it totally sucks to know that. So of course I had to look it up on YouTube. And, surprisingly, I have to say that it sounds tolerable. OK, it sounds decent enough. I’m still not a fan of hers but I love Zedd so maybe that makes me biased.

Here’s an extended version of Breaking Free which is a little bit more EDM than plain pop.

Summer Adventures

Hi! Remember me?

Just in case you had already forgotten about me, I’m Camille, and this is my blog. I know I’ve been MIA for the past two years but I’m back now. College life has been a blast! I’ve been pretty active and I regularly work out. Not because I have to but because I honestly love the rush that I get after getting all sweaty at the gym or out on a run.

Also, I think it’s safe to say that I’ve expanded my interests since I’ve last been here. I can’t wait to start blogging again. But for now, I have to leave. My friends and I are hitting the beach. I just love Summer! Don’t you?

For Those Wondering

Hello Dear Reader,

Thank you for taking the time to actually check out my blog. However, I regret to inform you that while I may have had high hopes for this blog, I am unable to pursue my blogging goals within the foreseeable future. This is because I have to many important things that I have to prioritize first over blogging.

I promised myself not to do anything half heartedly. This includes blogging. When I first started this blog, I had a lot of plans.This was because my situation then led to a lot of free time wherein I can contemplate and express myself. I thought I had a lot to offer the blogosphere. Unfortunately this is no longer the case.

Right now, I have very lofty academic goals. Academic goals that at the present economy, my parents cannot afford. I understand this and I accept it. However, I am still holding on to this ambition. Because of this, I have taken a job that can help me raise the cost of my educational goals. My parents and I are working hand in hand for my education.

Because of this, I am no longer able to fully commit to my blogging endeavor. For the next year, I am focusing on three things, my education, my job and other money making endeavors that I can try in order to raise money.

It’s not only blogging that has suffered. My social life is virtually non existent right now. I also have made sacrifices in terms of shopping and other leisure activities.

You may wonder what prompted this radical change. Well lets just say that I had an epiphany. A few weeks ago, I had a great talk with a person that truly inspires me. For the first time in my life, I know what I want and I know what to do in order to get what I want. I just can no longer ignore it.

So dear reader, thank you for reading. Stop back in a few months. Maybe I’ll be back by then. Have a great day everyone!

The Best!

I just had the best weekend ever! It was just perfect. I had my best friends with me and we were on the beach and we just let loose. After being so busy with school and getting so tired with our gym sessions, it was about time that we treated ourselves and simply had a great time.

Another thing that I loved was the fact that we all looked awesome in our bikinis. Yes, we were definitely a long way from being a Victoria’s Secret Angel but we all felt good about ourselves. I do not know if it was because we had really cute swimsuits or just that we felt carefree and just so excited to be there. All I know is, we received a lot of compliments about how hot we were looking. Of course, that jump started our weekend for sure.

Honestly, I felt like we were in that movie The Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants. Haha. Random, I know. But it feels like our whole weekend was like that. We have always been close but somehow, the long weekend made us closer to each other, if that is even possible.

All in all, it was just the best weekend ever and we could not wait for more of these soon!

Last Minute

I mentioned last time that we were heading out to the beach this weekend. Well, since we still had a couple of days until the actually weekend comes, my friends and I still went to the gym to have last minute sessions. One can never have enough exercise especially if you are preparing to go to the beach. Believe me, we are not vain at all. We just want to feel good about ourselves and wearing our bikinis should feel natural and not awkward. We just bought new swimsuits and we must be able to look smoking hot in them. In order for us to fully rock those sexy stuff, we must tone up for the weekend.

My thighs are my biggest insecurity about my body. That is why I focused on working out my thighs and legs today. My trainer asked me to work on the elliptical trainer today instead of the usual treadmill. He told me that this was a faster way for me to achieve my goal which is to strengthen my things. Treadmill more or less does the same thing but this equipment is more effective. At first, I did not get the right rhythm but as soon as I got into it, I actually enjoyed it.

Getting Ready

We are going to have a long weekend and I am just so excited! Finally! I can just chill out and have fun with my friends. I do not have to worry about school work and waking up early to go to class. I cannot wait for the weekend to finally come!

We all decided to go to the beach. We thought it was about time we debut our gym bodies. Haha. Seriously, we just wanted to get lazy and get a tan as well. It has been a while since we last sunbathing and we were looking forward to the long weekend. Surely, it was going to be a blast.

However, we suddenly got worried because we did not have the right outfits yet. Haha. We are girls, after all. Plus, we have been working hard at the gym and so of course, we wanted to flaunt our bodies the right way. We still do not know if there were any really big changes in our bodies but at that point, we did not really care because all we wanted was to relax and chill out. This was going to the best weekend yet and I must prepare everything as soon as possible.

No Pain, No Gain

My new motto is “no pain, no gain”. Seriously, I am so ready to give up. I feel so tired and I am beginning to question myself. Is this even worth it? Is this worth the pain and suffering? But then, I just cannot find it in myself to quit. I feel like I have already started something really good and quitting halfway does not seem acceptable. I am not a quitter and I am definitely not going to start right now. Hence, the motto that I keep saying over and over again to myself just to pump myself up.

It has been really tough and I believe that if I did not have two of my best friends with me, I would have probably stopped altogether. Losing weight is a lot of work and it takes a lot of sacrifice and dedication to actually achieve your goal of losing weight. However, I feel like everything would just have been a waste of time and effort if I stopped now. I am going to be a Victoria’s Secret Angel and this is the only way. So be it.

I started this journey and I am going to finish it no matter what.

Avicii x Guetta

I have always loved a good remix and for me, the two of the most amazing DJs right now are Avicii and David Guetta. Well, David Guetta is more popular and mainstream than Avicii but I actually love him more. Imagine, he is just 22 years old but he has done so many amazing stuff already! It is pure talent, I tell you.

I have been going over YouTube videos and I just cannot help but reminisce on their songs. I feel nostalgic even just by looking and listening to both of their remixes. They are really awesome and if I wanted to be a DJ, these two are probably going to be my influences. Of course, I know I would never have a future in that field. That is why I just listen and appreciate.

This is pronounced as Uh-Vee-Chi.

Here is a small bio about these very talented DJ (Source: Wikipedia).

Tim Bergling (born 8 September 1989), known professionally as Avicii, Tim Berg and Tom Hangs, is a Swedish DJremixer, and record producer.[1] His single “Bromance” (recorded under the pseudonym Tim Berg) has charted in the top 20 on the national single charts of Belgium, the Netherlands, and his native Sweden. A lyricized version titled “Seek Bromance” was released shortly thereafter, charting on the UK Singles Chart and reaching number one on the international Beatport chart. Other singles include “Levels” (sampling the song “Something’s Got a Hold On Me” by Etta James), “Fade Into Darkness” (sampling the song “Perpetuum Mobile” by Penguin Cafe Orchestra,), “My Feelings for You (sampling the song “My Feelings For You” by Cassius),” “Street Dancer,” and “Tweet It” among others. Currently he is releasing music under the Ministry of Sound label. He ranked 6th in the 2011 Top 100 DJ poll.

David Guetta has already produced lots of hits with his collaborations with the likes of Akon and even the Black Eyed Peas. Compared to Avicii, he is really current and mainstream and that is why a lot more people can appreciate him and actually know of him.

Here is a small bio about him (Source: Wikipedia).

Pierre David Guetta (born 7 November 1967), known professionally as David Guetta (French pronunciation: [daˌviːd gɛˈta]), is a French house musicproducer and DJ. Originally a DJ at nightclubs during the 1980s and 1990s, he co-founded Gum Productions and released his first album, Just a Little More Love, in 2002. Later, he released Guetta Blaster (2004) and Pop Life (2007). His 2009 album One Love included the hit singles “When Love Takes Over” (featuring Kelly Rowland), “Gettin’ Over You” (featuring Chris WillisFergieLMFAO) and “Sexy Bitch” (featuring Akon), the last becoming a top five hit in the US and all three reaching #1 in the UK, as well as another internationally known single called “Memories” featuring Kid Cudi which became a top five hit in many countries. Guetta has sold over three million albums and 15 million singles worldwide. He is currently one of the most sought-after music producers.
