Anne Frank: Not Silent

“I need to have something besides a husband and children to devote myself to! I don’t want to have lived in vain like most people. I want to be useful or bring enjoyment to all people, even those I’ve never met. I want to go on living even after my death! And that’s why I’m so grateful to God  for having given me this gift, which I can use to develop myself and to express all that’s inside me!
When I write I can shake off my cares. The sorrow disappears, my spirits are revived! But, and that’s a big question, will I ever be able to write something great, will I ever become a journalist or a writer?
I hope so, oh, I hope so very much, because writing allows me to record everything, all my thoughts, ideals and fantasies.”

– 5th April, 1944, ‘Diary of A Young Girl’

We all know about her, the girl who wrote one of the most famous diaries of history, the girl who 70 years ago died after suffering one of the cruelest fates humankind had faced. With her diary, Anne not only left a legacy, she left behind a ray of hope to all of those who are suffering, to all of those who are in the darkness in some way, just like she was. Today instead of keep a minute of silence for her, join the campaign #notsilent recording a video  reading one quote from her diary, the duration of the video must be of one minute or simply sharing the campaign in honor to Anne, in honor to this amazing girl who opened her heart to all of us.

Behind the Scene: Kenji's Photosession

It started like this, on my previous posts I mentioned that I'm working on a new project, a project that would work on the long term but that is something that I want to do, something that would be mine. Anyway, for this project I need to work in some photo sessions, so I thought well I'm going to snap some pictures of Berlioz my male cat who loves been photographed. I didn't thought about Kenji, my dog, because every single time he sees the camera he hide his head, he's terrible for pictures, I don't know why, so I was planning to use Berlioz, but guess what, surprise surprise, Berlioz didn't want to be in my improvised set, not at all!
And my biggest shock came when Kenji didn't want to leave the sheet that I used as set! He keep posing and doing goofy things, my heart melting guys, honestly melting.
But you have to wait for those pictures because today is behind the scene, what really happens while photographing pets! so welcome to Kenji's photo session.

Don't let that innocent face fools you, he's a scratcher!

 oh yes, he's having the time of his life!

 Don't worry, he's not being crushed, he usually has his tongue out, and the sheet caught air, he was scratching against the back of the set.

A Breath of Frost + Whisper the Dead / book review

A Breath of Frost by Alyxandra Harvey (book 1 on The Lovegrove Legacy trilogy)
Rating: «««««

In 1814, three cousins—Gretchen, Emma, and Penelope—discover their family lineage of witchcraft when a binding spell is broken, allowing their individual magical powers to manifest. Now, beyond the manicured gardens and ballrooms of Regency London, an alluring underworld available only to those with power is revealed to the cousins. By claiming their power, the three cousins have accidentally opened the gates to the underworld. 

Now ghouls, hellhounds—and most terrifying of all, the spirits of dark witches known as the Greymalkin Sisters—are hunting and killing young debutante witches for their powers. And, somehow, Emma is connected to the murders…because she keeps finding the bodies. 

Can the cousins seal the gates before another witch is killed…or even worse, before their new gifts are stripped away?

After reading The Cahill Witch Chronicles trilogy, I was in the mood to keep reading more about witches, and certainly couldn’t resist the cover of this one, the result? I couldn’t put it down. The story caught me since the beginning, I felt in love instantly with Cormac and when Ewan appears, it took my breath away.
The cousins are sassy, and I love their personalities show up during the book. The male characters while are strong they are the perfect companion without taking main focus on the cousins, still, you would love them so so much.

The powers of the cousins were really interesting, and the use of other magical elements like gargoyles was fantastic. 

Whisper the Dead by Alyxandra Harvey (book 2 on The Lovegrove Legacy trilogy)
Rating: «««««

Cousins Gretchen, Emma, and Penelope are all dealing with what it means to be a Lovegrove. For Gretchen, it means she often feels like her head is going to explode. As a Whisperer, Gretchen constantly hears the whispers of other witches' spells. And while this does help her to know when one of her own spells is going wrong, the incessant buzzing and pain the whispers cause makes it difficult to use her gift.

But when something evil begins to menace Mayfair, Gretchen must find a way to master her power. Along with her cousins, a madcap named Moira, and the icy yet irresistible Tobias Lawless, Gretchen faces deadly threats and unimaginable loss in the hopes of preventing the terrible Greymalkin Sisters from rising again. 

The second book in The Lovegrove Legacy trilogy, Whisper the Dead will leave readers spellbound

This book guys, OMG! I wasn’t sure to read this book since there’s no a release date announced for the third book, but after finishing the first one, I couldn’t help it, I needed to keep reading and reading.
While in book one the book is focused on Emma, in this one Gretchen the Whisperer share her adventures. I love the way the author managed share about the other too while focusing in one, and the fact that we could learn more about other characters like Tobias Lawless, Cormac partner in book 1.
Whisper the Dead was touching, there were two parts in particular that made me tear a little bit, and loved the fact that while London is ruled by the Order, two women show how a strong females are in charge, here I’m talking of Lady Bethany and Elise Lawless.

The whole book was a fantastic, and my only regret was to read it too soon, and now I don’t know what on earth I’m going to do waiting until the third book is release because OMG that ending was so so so great.

You guys I'm on my Spring Break and I've been having so much fun, ok, not going crazy or something like that, I went on a little adventure that I'm going to share with you later on the month, can't believe we are on April already, but you know what, I feel like I'm on the right track, and I'm really excited for it. But before I forget, since I figure it out what I want to do and I'm taking the right steps to do that, I'm back to blogging with all my heart and back to youtube too so wait for new content here and on my youtube channel, but let me finish with my pressies!
So the second part of my pressies! 
From James:

From Fallo:

It's my party and I cry if I want to...

By the title you probably knew this but on Sunday was my Birthday!!!!! and it was one of the best!
Usually I don't get excited for my birthday, another reminder of failures and dreams that are not yet come true, but this year I guess it was different. I was in a total different mood, which started back on February when I decided to take a pause on my projects, and re-evaluate what I'm doing (more of this on my previous post)
I didn't have spectations for my birthday, but oh my, what a fantastic time I had. Lots of laugh was involved, a journey to the past in the nostalgic train, and the most wonderful pressies a girl can dream! Do you want to see them? Ok, ok, I know you do, but today I'm only going to show you what mommy dearest gave me:

A pretty card handmade, a notebook and box of Hello Kitty, two tops that she made for me, a pair of sock, and my two favorite books of the year (till now, but I simply loved them, and the covers are breath takers!)

I must work on my review of these books, so wait for them later this week, probably tomorrow and the rest of the pressies after that!

Simple Moments 16-22

It started like this, a post that you wrote, decided to give it the final touches later, saved as draft to be then forgot. I think I have like 5 or 6 posts like that, I've been wanting with all my heart to catch up here on my sweet blog, but for some reason, I've been so distracted. Back on February I decided to take a pause from my projects, I just simply couldn't focus on them. There was something bottering me, a little voice on my head that keep telling me that I needed to find something more. You see, on February was the anniversary of the School where I work, It turned 57, and the usually give a diploma and a fan as a present to the people who turn 10 years for working there, they gave something too to those who turn 15 and 20. 
I turned 10 years, and I wasn't sure to recieve something since my anniversary was on january 17th, and the school anniverasy was on February the second, anyway, I was the first person the mentioned, the first person to go to the center of the auditorium, the first person to recieve her diploma and be photographed. I was embarased -in a good way- because I was distracted when they call my name, but happy at the same time. But then it hit me, 10 years in the same job, my first job of all things, 10-freaking-and-awesome-years!!!! And then a co-worker was cherry on the top, she turned 50 years!!!! can you believe that? 50 years! which left me mouth dried, brain hurting, heart screaming, what if this is my life? what if this is what I'm going to be doing for the next 40 years?
At that precise moment I wanted to cry, but I kept my big smile. Still when I get home, I didn't cry, but I keep thinking by most of the night, what if? what if? WHAT IF?!!!!!
That was on February 7th, and by this time, I'm still working on it, but I did something more, I found something that probably is going to make me happy, I discussed it with best friends and mom of course, and the four of them support me, the four of them believe in me, and mom even told me that she was so happy that finally i found something that is going to make me so happy and that I'm going to love. James went even more far by telling me that she was so proud of me. It's really nice when a person that you consider your little sister tells you that.
I'm not going to tell you my new plan, or at least not yet, because of course I don't want to jinx it, but of course it has to do with one of my favorite things in life.
Apart from that, I've been reading non-stop, i'm on my 22 book of the year, and I'm going to share with you some reviews in the coming days, I'm on a pause on my new project, but the previous days I've been searching and comparing options and doing most of the information-market search- kind of work, just to know what I'm going to get myself in. I have a clear idea now, and I couldn't be more excited!
If you read till this point, thank you, these are a few photos of my "Simple Moments" project.
