Indie Music

Hai guys! I’m currently in love with indie music and I’ve been listening to this one for a while that I thought would be interesting to write about. Mumford & Sons is a British Folk Rock band with some really good songs. (Here is there website http://www.mumfordandsons.com/)

Some other Indie songs/ bands I’ve been listening to are things like Seven Nation Army by The White Stripes (that song really sends a spark through me), Arctic Monkeys, Daylight by Matt and Kim, and Lana Del Rey.

On another note involving music, I’ve been listening to my mom’s old record player with her Beatles discs…

There is absolutely nothing better than listening to the record player with green tea while procrastinating to do your homework.

Keep swimming through that sea of music

Fall Fashion

Now that it’s officially sweater weather, let’s talk about what you should wear with those sweaters!
Boots are a good idea-

Some warm jackets (denim and hoodies layered together look really good)

Some jeans/ jeggings whatever keeps you comfy, cozy, and warm.

Gratitude

One great way to stay happy is to count your blessings. Do this by listing what you’re grateful for! Every evening/ afternoon, take a journal and list what you’re grateful for. For example:

10/29/14

Gratefulness

Today I was so grateful for that duct tape. It saved my project! Lisa helped me after I dropped my book in the hallway just as the bell rang, I was so thankful. And the fact that there was air-conditioning right where I was sitting after being in a blaring sun for lunch.

What were you grateful for today?

Fall

Oh Hai guys!  As many of you now, it’s fall! Yay! Pumpkin flavored everything, candles, oversized sweaters, tea, cold walks, and…. chapped lips?! One of the worst things about fall are chapped lips. But if you want to beat the peeling dry lips and straight to the hot chocolate, than here are some tips for you.

1. Exfoliate! Every 3 days, exfoliate your lips. This will  get all the dead dry skin off. You can use an old clean toothbrush to do the job, or you can make your own scrub using olive oil, Brown sugar, and Vaseline.

2. Moisturize

(Doctor who reference, for all you non-  DW fans) Drink lots of water, about 6-8 cups a day, and when they feel especially dry, dab some olive oil on them using a tissue. Apply chapstick or burtsbees and be on your way! Warning: DO NOT USE LIPSTICK, LIP BALM, OR LIP GLOSS TO MOISTURIZE YOUR LIPS

3. Protect. If the weather in your area is brisk and cold, wear a scarf and a heavy layer if chapstick over your lips.

Hope this helped you! As always, this has been SevenBlueSketches

The False Prince

My ELAR teacher has give us a forty book challenge over the year, which includes reading 40 books of varied genres.

One of the books I have read, titled The False Prince, is about an orphan boy who has the chance to become king- though it contains more plot twists then one. Rated 4.5/5 by Barnes and Noble, this book by Jennifer A. Nielsen has a medieval feel throughout. Follow Sage on his quest to prove himself, though not the way you might expect. The False Prince is one of three books from the Ascendance Trilogy. Read and comment what you think!

Plain (White) Tee’s

The Plain White Tee’s is a popular band that songs the song, “Hey there Delilah,” and has amazing songs.
But what about the style? Plain White Tee’s are great with a:
-bright scarf
-a feather necklace
-a big purse.

Not only do these look great on white tees, but multiple colors as well.

Too hot for tees? Tank tops work just as well as substitutes.

What are your favorite accessories to have with a plain t-shirt? Post in the comments below!
