The Descendants

With his wife on life support after a boating accident, Matt, tries to figure out a way to bring his two daughters and him closer together. While trying to figure out how to deal with his wife’s situation, the huge sale of land on Kauai that his family owns, and a new found discovery about his wife, him and his two daughters go on a trip from Oahu to Kauai in search of some answers.

I really enjoyed this movie. It was pretty sad, but some parts were hilarious, so I thought it had a very good balance. The family in it was kind of unconventional, but I liked the dynamic they had all the same, and how they ended up coming together at the end. George Clooney, of course, is one of my favorites and did a great job, but I was really surprised by Shailene Woodley.

I seriously love this girl. I think she is soooo cute (especially in this movie!) and funny! I thought she played this part so well. I wasn’t sure if I was going to love her, but she was fabulous! Can’t wait for her to be in some more roles!

15 Beauty Tricks You Can Do with a Toothbrush

Forget spending money on a bunch of high-tech tools to reach your beauty goals…here is one incredibly cheap tool that has multiple uses. I bet you have an extra laying around your house right now.

I bet you can think of even more uses…

1. Exfoliate chapped lips: Move in a circular motion to remove dead skin. 

2. Flatten flyaways!

3. Declump stuck-together lashes!

4. Buff away deodorant marks!

5. Tame your brows: you can also use Vaseline to help keep them down if they’re being extra nasty.

6. Add lift to you hair: Backcomb or tease hair with a toothbrush to get a more subtle result.

7. Touch up your roots: work dye through roots with the brush

8. Apply dry shampoo!

9. Clean out the vent in your blow dryer! or the lint of your lint roller!

10. Wipe off Self Tanner: you’re totally being cancer free right? Erase the evidence! Scrub it off your hands with a toothbrush, baking soda, water, and lemon juice!

11. Clean Your Nails: Swipe underneath tips to get rid of grime

12. Keep Cuticles in Shape!

13. Paint nails: Create splatter polish effect using the brush to do the splattering. 

14. Clean Jewelry!

15. Heal a hickey (brushing fades the bruising)…whoopsie. (You probably should really try to avoid those anyway)

Keep Me

Keep Me

Music & Lyrics by Lucy Schwartz

Lets take all these stones
Build them up tall
And make it a home

We’ll lay down our love
And whatever comes
We’ll make it our own

When everything’s moving
I want you for always, I want you to stay
If others are fading
I want you for always to keep it this way

Keep, keep me

Come lets live like thieves
Stealing our time
As much as we need

Live, but not like the rest
Not tied to our desk
‘Cause that’s the way it should be

The light of the morning
The peace in your silence, the touch of your skin
The way that you see me
Straight through the bones like you’re looking in

Keep, keep me

How do I, how do I, how do I,
How do I live without
How do I, how do I, how do I,
How do I live without

Keep, keep, keep, keep, keep, keep me
Keep, keep, keep, keep keep me
Keep, keep, keep, keep, keep me
Keep, keep, keep, keep, keep

The light of the morning, the peace in your silence
The touch of your skin
The way that you see me
Straight through the bones like you’re looking in

 

(I’ve already posted this on one of my “favorites” posts, but I’m literally in love with it. I love the lyrics and the music. So I’m re-posting in already…listen!!!)
