True calling

I guess I’m struck by wanderlust,

Consumed by the idea of uniqueness 

And rawness

In thoughts,love and places.

I think I’m a wanderess in disguise

With a diary full of exquisite destinations,

An overwhelmingly excited heart,

And a pocket full of dreams

Ready to be caught.

I want to see it all,

I want to live it all,

I need to feel all of it,

Limitless.

Every little city is calling for me

Awakening my senses and adventurous spirit,

I could hear them so loudly,

Devoring my mind,

Yet the blur that it’s my life manages

To keep me away

From the world I’ve been wishing for

Since forever,

But just for now.

 The desire that captures my entire being

Of traveling the world

And finding pieces of myself in every corner 

Is so much stronger,

Making me confident

And absolutely positive

That without a doubt,

I’m going to spend my life

Fullfilling my heart and soul,

Limitless.

“I’m a citizen of nowhere,but belonging anywhere.”

The power of love

Love


Oh,you love

Though you are written in a single word,

You are the only magical thing in which 

I always put my faith in.

You are a whirlind of emotions,moods and feelings

 An everlasting hurricane,

Capturing our heart and soul,

Endlessly.

Happiness,

Lust,

Confusion,

Hope,

Swarming butterflies,

4 AM twisted thoughts,

Passion,

Anxiety,

Are just the beggining to the juvenile love

We get to live wholeheartedly,

Yet despite the unconsciousness of our feelings

You manage to steal 

The best memories in life.

Your greatness,

Undying and untouchable power,

With endless meanings 

And countless visions,

Envelops the world

Into a stronger armor 

Which cannot be denied,

But can easily be destroyed,

Ripped apart 

By the cruel devils,

Who reside in no one but ourselves.

I am still hoping for the day

Where you,dear love,

Will cure the ones who can’t accept you

Or simply don’t acknowledge

Your lifesaving ways 

And spiritual calling 

Of keeping us together.

The Liebster Award

Recently (okay,not so recently,sorry for the delay,life’s been hectic),I had the absolute surprise to receive a nomination for this award,which made me,besides overly excited,very happy and grateful that someone really considered my thoughts and work worth the recognition.

Shamilah,thank you so much!I really appreciate you! You are amazing!

However,I couldn’t entirely accept this award without doing a little bit of research,in order to put myself in theme and figure out what it is truly about.So,for those who aren’t so familiar with what this award consists of(myself included),I got some relevant info regarding it.

1.It is just an “on-line” award,which means it exists on the internet only.What about my chocolate prize? But I thought..Never mind.

2.Its main purpose is to encourage bloggers and give them a boost of confidence,while getting to interact and know each other a little better.I like that.

3.The word “Liebster” has German origins and it means “sweetest”,”dearest”,”valued”,”beloved” and a lot of other similar words.Pretty great,right?

4.It consists of a set of rules,which I’ve learned are actually several versions.I believe they may vary,depending on the person who nominated you.Given the circumstances,I’m going to follow the ones imposed by my fellow nominator,which are:

  • Thank your nominator.
  • Share the award on your blog.
  • Answer the 10 question asked to you.
  • Notify them.

That being said,I’m going to respond the questions with all honesty and that way,you’ll get to know me a little better.Shall we begin,then?

But first,let me take my candies.

1.Who is your favourite author?

Despite the fact that I’m very indecisive regarding my tastes and since I’m still exploring what kind of books I’m more into,I guess I can’t name a favorite.But,I find Emily Bronte quite fascinating,her iconic book”Wuthering Heights” really got to me and made me appreciate her art and authenticity in writing.It’s one of the classics,so I’m going to say it has an endless fascination to me.

2.Who is your biggest blog fan?

I’m going to stick with Shamilah’s answer and say that definitely,my mother is my biggest supporter.And I honestly love that.She’s the first to know when I publish a new post or when a new crazy idea popped into my mind and I wouldn’t have it any other way.She’s the best friend anyone could ever asked for.

3.Why did you decide to blog?

To be honest,this idea of blogging had been bugging me for a while,especially because I fall in love with this art of expressing myself through words each day.It’s such a magical thing to be able to experiment my life by sharing and giving others a glimpse of happiness,hope or some well needed kindness into our world.I think that the inner me have always enjoyed the idea of sharing the experiences,lessons,thoughts,values that captures my mind and soul,that make me who I am,in order to help,inspire and motivate further the ones around me,including myself.I used to write in my diary since I was a little girl all kind of stuff and so I thought I could make a step further into my self development process and self happiness  and start this thrilling journey with you.It’s very exciting and I must admit I am finding unknown pieces of myself through every post I am creating.

Also,I love that being flawed has never felt so good.I am aware that exposing my thoughts and inner feelings to the world may seem like a vulnerable,risky thing,which indeed it is,but I also have came to realize that expressing my inviduality and own differences are a massive part of my human self.Therefore,we all are unique in our looks,characters,opinions and ways of expression.
4.What is your best piece of advice to anyone,as well for those considering blogging?

Listen to your inner voice.Do whatever make your heart bursting out of joy,whether it’s writing,painting,photography,travelling,dancing,screaming from the top of your lungs to your favs songs.Regardless everything that may come in your way,remember that you are the most important and therefore,your passions come first.Express them through blogging or any other form you want,but always feel them wholeheartedly.Find yourself through your own art.That is what truly matters.
5.What is your goal for you blog in 2016?

I think that one of my main goals for my blog,which actually became an important part of me,is to keep connecting to beautiful people from all over the world,in order to be inspired and motivated,and in return,to bring them joy,positiveness and hopefully,some kind of inspiration,too.

This would make me the happiest girl.

6.If you could travel anywhere,where would you travel?

I guess one thing about myself that I haven’t mentioned previously is that I’m a wanderlust type of person.I just love the idea of travelling,getting to know cultures,traditions and unique things about a certain place.I’m mesmerized by what this world has to offer and I want to experience as much as I can,because that’s what makes me spiritually richer.Being a travelling freak (hah,I guess that’s the simpler form for my addiction),I would love to discover the world one step at a time and to fulfill one of my biggest dreams.

But if I could pick one place,Narnia would certaintly be at the top of the list.Who’s coming?

7.What is your favorite movie?

Well,here’s another problem.I have so many movies that I fell in love with that this blog couldn’t fit nearly half of them.What can I say is that every movie holds something special and unique in its own twisted way and into my heart so I find very hard to decide on one favorite.Though,if it’s one damn movie that always gets to me,regardless how many times I had seen him,is Titanic.Shamilah,I have to meet you one day and see it together! It’s a must!

Oh,and “A walk to remember” is very dear to my heart,as well as “Room”,which is the most recent one to me.
8.What is your favorite blog to read(besides your own)?

I’m still discovering people and incredible stories through this world of blogging and I must say I’m touched by most of them.Anyway,the ones that I am following at the moment are so beautiful,powerful and with a lot of inspiration for my complicated and everchanging self.

9.If you listen to music while blogging,what genre is your muse?

I usually don’t listen to music while blogging cause then,I would lose track of my ideas,so I need to be able to concentrate on my thoughts.However,when I’m in a lighter mood or depending on what the topic of my post is about,I will put some music in the background,mostly remixes of my favorite hits.

10.How did you decide on your blog name?

I’m still in the process of finding the right name to fit my personality and concept of my blog.I’m weighting between some options at the moment,but I want to surprise you when I will finally make up my mind.However,any suggestions and thoughts on this subject are more than welcomed and they would be a real help in choosing the best one.

 

My nominations are:

1.Michelle

2.Samantha

3.AlaynaFayth

4.Ramona Crisstea

5.Hana

6.Ameena

7.Burresor

8.Riechel

Thank you for following and being with me on my own crazy road of discovery and growth!I choose you because I would love to know some things about you and get to know each other better!

Can’t wait to see your answers! All the love!

5 times Leonardo Di Caprio left us swooning 

 

   

    Leonardo Di Caprio is,without a single doubt,one of the most humble,talented,successful and greatest actors of all time,who is setting the cinematographic standards to higher and higher levels with each one of a kind role we get to see him portraying into the masterpieces he gave life. Movies like “The wolf of the Wall Street”(2013),”The aviator”(2004),”What’s eating Gilbert Grape”(1993),”The Great Gatsby”( 2013) and the iconic “Titanic” (1997) are just a few of the best rated films in history,which surely left a mark upon the world.

       His carreer in acting is currently blossoming and although he is acknowledged for his amazing skills in the world of cinema,he chose to use this platform for making the Earth heard through plenty of humanitarian actions and programs he is involved in,in order to make a difference into the enviromment.

   So,an outstanding actor,a commited enviromentalist,a good-looking guy…did I miss something?

   Oh,that’s right.With his first Oscar win of his career for the “Best actor in a leading role” in the well-known movie “The Revenant” travelling around the whole world and headlining every newspaper/magazine/article at the moment,Leonardo Di Caprio never cease to make us swoon and be head over heels for him.Whether it’s because some incredible scene from an epic movie,an awards show or some wise words he delivered in some live TV show,Di Caprio could be easily recognized as the epitome of perfection. Girls,you feel me.

   But here’s the thing.Once with Leo’s big and well deserved win,we sadly need to say goodbye to our favorite memes,which kept us entertained on his tumultous road to the Oscars.*crying internally*

     Though,for the old times’s sake,let me remind you some of the best.

  Now,if you weren’t already impressed with what I’ve just showed you,I’ve got for you some of the best reasons Leonardo Di Caprio made us believe he’s the ideal man.

1.His famous quotes 

   One thing that I truly admire about the actor Leonardo Di Caprio is his authenticity and rawness that he never fails to show through his grand roles.Regardless the genre or the emotional impact that a movie holds,we get to envision Leo being himself in front of a camera.His whole act is pure and his enormous talent is always shining the brightest. So,along with the masterpieces he had given life to,he also managed to create some famous quotes,full of wisdom,that cannot be forgotten or left out from my top 5.

   By the way,this is a completely improvised line.I repeat,improvised.Surpringly enough,it turned out to be in the film and became the fourth greatest line of all times.Pretty damn good for a 23 years old Leo,right?

      And of,course,this is gold.

     Don’t swoon yet.There’s more.

 2.His sense of humor 

20a.gif

 During the opening monologue of the hilarious TV show “Saturday Night Live”, the famous comedian Jonah Hill recreated with Leonardo Di Caprio one of the most memorable scenes from the iconic “Titanic” on Saturday, the 25th of January.

  Jonah Hill was the special guest host on that episode and his monologue contained bad mouthing Di Caprio,who admited that he wasn’t initially the first one on the cast’s list for “The wolf of Wall Street”.As if on cue,Leonardo Di Caprio made his sudden appearance,taking everyone by surprise in order to debunk the lies of his good friend.

  The sketch couldn’t be done without Jonah requesting Leo to “relive” the moment that made our hearts go on(pun intended),saying “Hey Lee, remember when we were on set and I would get really nervous? Can we do the thing we always did every day that made me feel safe?”

   I guess I’m not the only one quite dissapointed we wouldn’t get this chance.Lucky Jonah.

  Oh,and let’s not forget about the famous reaction of Leo at the 2016’s Golden Globes,where his priceless face while looking at Lady Gaga went instantly viral.Although there’s no bad blood between them,we could not but enjoy his hilarious mistake.

3.His big heart 

   As I mentioned briefly at the begginning,Leonardo Di Caprio is known not only for his acting skills,but because he has an incredibly big heart.Throughout his career,he has been an outspoken advocate for environmental issues,establishing his own foundation “Leonardo Di Caprio Foundation” with the main mission of protecting the Earth’s rights and implementing solutions to build a stronger relationship between humanity and the natural world.Di Caprio also made several films to educate the public about environmental issues,including “The 11th Hour”.


In 1998,he donated $35,000 towards the “Leonardo DiCaprio Computer Center” at the Los Feliz branch of the Los Angeles Public Library ,which happens to be the site of his childhood home.

   He led several innovative fundraising events, raising over $60 million for projects the foundation is developing and supporting. Additionally, in an effort to empower his fans to make a difference, DiCaprio uses social media to inform and inspire the public, showing them ways to take action on an array of issues – from protecting sharks in California and Elephants in Africa to supporting the transition of our society to clean, renewable energy.

     Did I mention that for his 41th birthday,Di Caprio celebrated with a charity bash? Kanye West performed,a PR company shot video footages of the entire evening,all with the purpose of raising money for his environmental foundation. Pretty impressive,if you ask me.

    Do I need to say something more? Of course I do.Can we talk about his man bun,please? I mean,look at him.

4. His unmistakeable talent

  Known for his unconventional roles,Leo started out in television before moving on to the cinematographic industry,scoring his first Oscar nomination for “Best supporting actor” at the early age of 19 for the role in “What’s eating Gillbert Grape” in 1993.

   His early credits included guest appearances on such programs as “The New Lassie” and “Roseanne”. He also landed a role on the dramatic comedy “Parenthood”.

  In 1997,he starred in James Cameron’s drama,”Titanic”,which was the breaking point that showed his potential as a future star.The 90th also turned Leonardo Di Caprio to a major teenage heartthrob. Thanks God.

  With 78 wins and 192 nominations at the moment,Leonardo Di Caprio’s carreer has contributed to some of the best performances of the last two decades and it’s still going strong.

5.Photoshoots

Last but not least,his photoshoots are everything.Although we are accustomed to Leonardo Di Caprio’s physical appearance from today,we couldn’t but be enveloped in nostalgia and sadness when we think about the 90th version of Leo,with that slicked back hair and sexy smirk,doing one of his first photoshoots.Who wants him back,too?

In the studio photos,19 years old Leonardo Di Caprio slays a cozy turtleneck sweater and some oversized pants which matches the misterious look he gives to the camera and smoking a cigarette with his feet.His styling evolution is clear as day,but it doesn’t stop us daydreaming about his early days,when he was able to make us swoon just by giving us this intense gaze.Please,let me bless you with this recently released pics.
