Orn Hansen

      With a new fancy iPad, maybe I can get back to my blogging hobby :) 

To kick things back into gear, I wanted or focus on this neat little store I found through Instagram. A friend of mine started following the insta of Orn Hansen, and I had to check it out for myself. Considered a Vintage American General Store, I just love all the items that are there and the whole feel of the store. I saw on their website that they just had their grand opening I'm long beach last week! So I'll have to go check it out for myself. Online store should be available soon. Check them out!!

Miss. Subways

Miss. Subways was a title given to individual women of New York between the years of 1941 - 1976 who's pictures would be running alongside the subways during that time. Women were chosen by telephone based voting and to be qualified the women had to use the subway themself, and be a resident of New York.

How awesome is this? It's just interesting to see what was considered a beautiful women, and how different it is from the present. Here are a few of the women who were featured.

New York should start this up again :)

Beirut - Nantes / Mike Posner - Long Time

One of my favorite things is when the blogs I check out have a "Music" feature. Like a songs of the week or that sort of thing. So I came across Beirut's "Nantes" through Jessica's website where she has a Music Monday feature. I went all the way back to the beginning and am making my way to the present. Anyways, I found that Mike Posner did his little remake of this song, and thought, although the original is 100 times better, it was still neat so would share it. Enjoy both!

Ten Relationship Words That Aren't Translatable into English

  • Ten Relationship Words That Aren't Translatable into English

  • Mamihlapinatapei (Yagan, an indigenous language of Tierra del Fuego): The wordless yet meaningful look shared by two people who desire to initiate something, but are both reluctant to start.
  • Yuanfen (Chinese): A relationship by fate or destiny. This is a complex concept. It draws on principles of predetermination in Chinese culture, which dictate relationships, encounters and affinities, mostly among lovers and friends.
  • Cafuné (Brazilian Portuguese): The act of tenderly running your fingers through someone's hair.
  • Retrouvailles (French): The happiness of meeting again after a long time.
  • Ilunga (Bantu): A person who is willing to forgive abuse the first time; tolerate it the second time, but never a third time.
  • La Douleur Exquise (French): The heart-wrenching pain of wanting someone you can’t have.
  • Koi No Yokan (Japanese): The sense upon first meeting a person that the two of you are going to fall into love.
  • Ya’aburnee (Arabic): “You bury me.” It’s a declaration of one’s hope that they’ll die before another person, because of how difficult it would be to live without them.
  • Forelsket: (Norwegian): The euphoria you experience when you’re first falling in love.
  • Saudade (Portuguese): The feeling of longing for someone that you love and is lost. Another linguist describes it as a "vague and constant desire for something that does not and probably cannot exist."

future and a past

let's try to entertain this insomnia with a little blogging.

I like a woman with a future and a past

I know things get hard girl but you got it girl
You got it there you go
Can't you tell by how they looking at you everywhere you go
Wondering whats on your mind, it must be hard to be that fine

I'm so, I'm so, I'm so, I'm so, I'm so proud of you
I'm so, I'm so, I'm so, I'm so, I'm so proud of you
I'm so, I'm so, I'm so, I'm so, I'm so proud of you
Everything's adding 
up, you've been through hell and back
Thats why you're bad as fuck and you

i don't need drake's approval :) but the first line is my favorite in this song, and i love the positive overall message. every woman has her own story, her own baggage, no matter if it seems like a big deal to you or not, know that it made her who she is today. and because of that she treats you the way she does. she doesn't do it out of spite. she does it because that's what she was taught is right, or you taught her to be that way. now its up to you to choose if that's good or bad.

yes, women to have their own minds, and are in control of their actions. but to not have been affected by their relationships is a women who has not lived at all. know that much.

A Little Bit of Heaven

Watched this one on Netflix today. I probably shouldn't have watched it in the middle of the day by myself since I could not stop crying. Regardless, the acting I would say was mediocre. Kate Hudson does her normal cute funny girl routine even when she is facing death, and well Gael Garcia Bernal I would say is an okay actor. Now in his native tongue I do believe he has much more potential probably. But he is a very beautiful man. 

What I did enjoy was the setting. I love the New Orleans setting, the architecture, the music, and the social life that was featured. It was fun and refreshing even for a sad movie. And although I know it was the point to make Dr. G's character very quirky, I gotta admit some of his jokes were pretty funny.

Why does it suck being an egg?
* You only get laid once.
* You only get eaten once.
* It takes 4 minutes to get hard. Only 2 minutes to get soft.
* You share your box with 11 other guys.
* But worst of all.... The only chick that ever sat on your face was your mother.

that was pretty funny.
