Web Wednesdays | Disney Dudez

Hi my loves!

It's only Wednesday and it's been a long week already! I found this video on tumblr and being a long time disney fan, I just had to check it out. I was confused at the beginning and I wasn't sure if I should even continue watching but I'm glad I did because the actual video and songs were super cute :)

So if you guys want to skip over the beginning and go straight to the songs, you can start the video at 0:46.

They had me singing along and jamming out, I really enjoyed their renditions of the disney songs. Leave your comments below, let us know if you liked this video or if you have any videos you would like to share with us!

Revamp your room: Ikea PAX Wardrobe

Hellllllo darlings,

This fall I decided to make a bedroom in the basement for me because 7 people residing on one floor was getting a tad crowded. We cleared out a section of the basement and I'm almost all moved in. The nice thing about the basement is that my room is a lot more spacious. However, since it wasn't designed for a bedroom, there is no closet space. So I went looking online for wardrobes that would fit all of my clothes and be cost friendly.

I decided to get the Ikea PAX Wardrobe and it is the best decision I have made. It was a bit more than I wanted to spend ($700) but I like it because it's completely customizable.

So how the PAX wardrobes work, you first choose the frame for the wardrobe. You can choose between 4 colours of wood: white, white stained oak, birch effect and black brown. There are also 3 different sizes: 50cm, 75cm, and 100cm wide. I went simple and did two white frames that were 75cm wide, 58cm deep and 201cm tall. The next step is choosing your doors. You could choose sliding or hinged doors. You also had the choice between wood, glass, coloured glass doors, frosted, or mirrored doors or a combination of them. I opted for the mirrored sliding doors. Lastly, ikea has a variety of interior organizers to choose from. Different types of shelves, clothes rails, drawers, shoe organizers and pant hangers are available. I kept it simple and got the interior chest of drawers, three clothes rails and two grey glass shelves.

This is what you would see online or in stores:

Web Wednesdays | Instavideo or Vine?

 I was one of those people who thought Vine would completely fail when Instagram Video started. But then someone reminded me, it’s not like Facebook failed when MySpace started to get similar features. It seems like, without knowing it, many outlets and mediums of social media are fulfilling certain purposes in their own unique ways.

I’m a huge social media nerd, and I tend to compartmentalize my life. Naturally, when Instagram Video came about I thought, “Oh crap! But I always keep images and video separate…what do I do now?”  I had tried other “video” type mediums before such as Keek, but they just didn’t suit me. I thought I would immediately fall in love with InstaVideo and fall off of Vine – but it didn’t work that way.

New Fall Shows

Hi loves!

Have I ever mentioned that school is super annoying? Well it is. It's also a tad stressful and tiring at times. One way I like to unwind after a long day of classes and assignments is catching up on my favourite shows. Some new shows started this fall and I decided to give them a try so I can have some new story lines to fill my otherwise boring week. Explaining the concepts of shows is a lot easier to do in person, so try to follow along and I'll try my best to be clear, concise and to make sense.

Set in the 1500s, "Reign" follows the life of Mary, the soon to be Queen of Scotland. To form an alliance between Scotland and France, Mary and Francis, the Prince of France, have been arranged to get married. Mary is then sent to France, with her friends as company, but things soon start to get complicated. There are people who don't want her to be married to Francis, and even those who want to harm her. During these hard times, she finds herself attracted to the half-brother of her soon to be husband, who also seems to return her feelings. The Queen of France is overlooking everything, trying to get her way and there is an unknown presence in the castle working against her. With death threats, sabotage, mistresses, seers and strange allies, the castle is becoming stranger each day. In addition to everything happening with the Royals in the castle, there's something strange and possibly magical going on in the forest behind the castle, making things even more interesting for the citizens of the kingdom.

Music Monday | Fall Albums

Hello Dolls! Ugh school has been keeping us SO BUSY! But we're back with a brand new Music Monday. This week we're not featuring a song, or an artist in particular. Since it's the time of year for scarves, and cozy sweaters we figured we'd do a post on two albums that are perfect for Fall!

Fall is the time where we tend to ditch those upbeat, feel-good party anthems for more mellow, calming, cozy music. These are the albums that remind us of pumpkin carving, late walks through the leaves, warm drinks and cool nights.

The first album up is Taylor Swifts' most recent release, "Red".

Web Wednesdays | Breaking Bad Cast Sings "Bye Bye Bye"

Hey guys!

Sorry we haven't been able to post lately, school is keeping me pretty busy at the moment. On one of my many study breaks, I found this video on YouTube from Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. Thought it could brighten your day! They edited clips from Breaking Bad to the tune of NSYNC's "Bye Bye Bye". Being a fan of NSYNC, I loved this!

If you want to skip over the monologue and go straight to the song, you can start the video at 1:05.

For those of you who don't watch Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, you should really start, he's hilarious! Feel free to share any other videos you've found lately. We would love to see them :)

Until next time!
