“Monster High” Book Review

monsterhigh

Hello loves. Instead of writing out my whole book review, I shall just show you the video in which I talk about it. To summarize, I gave this book a 6.5 out of 10. I love Lisi Harrison and she’s very sweet and all of her book series are pretty entertaining. The books aren’t what I would classify as great literature, but they are fun to read and the characters are cool. There’s a lot of things that make me angry in the books (well, all of Lisi’s books to be exact) but that doesn’t stop me from reading them. To learn more about the review, click the video below.

Also I just have to say, I think I prefer the cartoons! I absolutely love the cartoon and I think that it’s great for kids because it teaches life lessons unlike what I had when I was younger. (I had My Scene. All they did was shop, party, and talk about their boyfriends. Congratulations corporate companies, kids media keeps getting better and better!)

In my opinion though, My Scene will still always be the greatest thing on this planet. Well, one of them, anyway.

Goodbye Christmas

I hope everyone had an awesome Christmas! It came and left so early, it always seems. I had a fun time and the gifts were a bit overwhelming (which is an extremely good thing!) The next big event is New Year’s Eve, of course. Then after that, it’s the new year! What are your resolutions this year, if any? I always make a list with ten resolutions and check them off as they come true. This year, I think I got 6/10. Not too shabby! I’m also excited for 2015 because I’m going to start blogging like crazy. Already have a line up with reviews (books, beauty, random items, etc) and other cool stuff. I also want to start connecting with some other bloggers! You can never have too many blog buddies. 🙂 I’m taking a different route now with Mackenzie High. This is also the year that I go crazy with the publication process. Fingers crossed! Wish me luck! And for the writers/readers out there, you know how annoying writer’s block can be. So any suggestions for blog topics would be great! As we close off the Christmas season and welcome in the new year, we step into a clean state and can really make the upcoming year the best one yet! Always stay positive. ❤ Victoria

Favourite vacation?
Somewhere that’s warm, plenty to do, and is adventurous. Some of my fave in the past were going to West Edmonton Mall (Alberta), Florida, and Toronto.

What do you dislike currently?
The fact that I have so much to do and so little time to do it. It’s already past midnight and I have plans in the afternoon tomorrow. 😡

What are you listening to?
Nothing at the moment. Last song though was “Haven’t Met You Yet” by Michael Bublé.

If you could have one thing right now what would it be?
Ten billion dollars.

What is your favourite scent?
I can’t pick one scent. There are so many. The top of the list would be anything that smells like cookies, chocolote, strawberry, and/or vanilla. And sweet candy-esque smells. Oh, and I love Nicki Minaj’s perfume they smell good. I also like the way my boyfriend smells.

A few weeks ago at the gym. I used to have my own pool but I moved in November. 😦

Do you read your horoscope?
Sometimes. I used to every day on Facebook but the app had a glitch so I stopped. It was so accurate though, it was scary. But the best book overall for horoscopes is “The Element Encyclopedia of Birthdays” by Theresa Cheung. It’s actually amazing.

Where was the last place you bought something?
A caramel frappuccino last night at Starbucks.

How do you feel about your hair right now?
My hair is so beautiful. Sometimes I get bored of it, though. I really want to dye it and get a wavy perm. No way I’m cutting it though.

Do you bite your nails?
No I take such good care of my nails. I cut them every Friday night and take care of my cuticles daily. Not too big of a fan of nail polish, though. I do bite the skin around my nails. And I’m doing it right now. F**k. 

Do you have any expensive jewellery?
Yes.

No more than 60 km/h. I’m still a G1 license only, unfortunately. ‘Till November when I get my car.

Never have, never will. I enjoy keeping my money and lungs healthy thank you.

Even though I have a 90% average, I actually don’t even like school . . . I guess science, if I had to pick one.

Oh yes.

Nope, had a ten hour sleep so I’m good.

Yes. Not worldwide fame but still with fame. And I’m meeting Oprah in September so then that will be a big yes.

Do you want to be famous one day?
Hell yes. Mackenzie High definitely has that potential.

Any Pet Peeves?

  • After I’m done cleaning the kitchen, and people put their dirty dishes in the sink rather than the dishwasher.
  • When I’m trying to focus, and some loud and/or annoying noise ruins it.
  • People who blast their music so other people can hear it (in cars, their house, on the bus, etc.) It’s rude, man.
  • When people chew with their mouths open.
  • Messes, especially when I fixed them up.
  • Things that are unorganized or not to my liking. I have OCD, okay?

Do you like Britney Spears?

Never met her in person. As for her music, some songs are good, but I wouldn’t call myself a fan.

What is your least favourite chore?
Call me crazy but I actually don’t mind chores. I like doing the dishes and having a clean house. I guess dusting, though. It’s boring.

How many pairs of shoes do you own?
Many. Please don’t make me count.

How many piercings do you have?
Five.

What’s the stupidest thing you ever did with your cell phone?
My old phone used to unlock and call people automatically, so I would always be with my boyfriend and I’d accidentally call my mom, most of the time she wouldn’t pick up so there would be like a half an hour long voice-mail of us talking haha.

Do you wish you could move?
No, I like where I live. Obviously I want to travel and stuff, but I don’t mind it at all.

If you could be anywhere right now where would it be?
On a world book signing tour with my boyfriend and mom.

Are you happy with your life?
Yes, I am so thankful for everything in my life and who I am. I would never want to be anyone else.

What is one regret in your life?
I went through an immature phase in grade nine. Though I don’t really consider it a regret, because everything in life brings you to who you are today. Still, I was an annoying-ass fourteen year old.
