10 Movie Soundtracks

Here are some soundtracks that I love from movies. Yes, I pay attention to soundtracks, and there are other pretty songs out there too, but I just like these songs so much. 

Once in my Life (Stevie Wonder), Shrek 4 - I heard this one in an ending song from Shrek 4 movie. At first, I kinda like it cause it was upbeat, catchy & you can tell by the melody that it was a classic song, I didn't know who the artist at that time. But the more I listened to it, the lyric & meaning of the song is so amazingly beautiful, touching and moving. The song is about finding that special person you've been looking & dreaming for your whole life. That person who gives you bundles of happiness & joy. This is a perfect wedding song.

Little Wonders (Rob Thomas), Meet the Robinsons - it is one of the songs that would make you reflect about your life decisions especially looking back at your past experiences. Whatever the decisions we've made in our past, it makes us who we are right now. It is one of our defining moments and that little wonders will remains a memory we will never forget.

Iris (Goo Goo Dolls), City of Angels - This song is so popular during my high school years that makes me annoyed how people like the song so much. I didn't even like the song back then since I cannot understand the meaning behind it. During my college years, a friend told me that it was a soundtrack of the movie City of Angels. I haven't seen the movie yet but that friend recommended me to watch it cause it was really good. After watching the movie which is so tragic by the way, I clearly understand the meaning of it, and then I started to like the song. The song was about the perspective of Nicolas Cage's character in the movie. Cage was an angel; they help those humans who died transition to the afterlife. Unexpectedly, He falls to a human which is played by Meg Ryan. He was torn to choose between his love for Meg, or give up his immortality. It's a heavy decision though but he's willing to give up everything for Meg, sweet.

Somewhere only we know (Keane), He’s just not that Into You - Well, the movie was good cause Drew was there, I love her! I like the song because of the melody. At first, I thought it was kinda sad song, since I heard this line "this could be the end of everything." For me, the song is about a secret place whom you shared with a special someone, where you've had a lot of happy memories with that person.  How you would wish those happy memories would somehow be back to the way it used to be. You'll find strength as you remember those moments.

500 miles (The Proclaimers), Bridesmaids - Bridesmaids is one of my fave comedy movie ever!! But I love the song 500 miles more. The song is about a man being devoted to a woman, who would do anything just to spend the rest of his life with her. I love the meaning of that song, I even tried to make my man sing it for me LOL but he doesn't know the lyrics though haha! You will fall for this song, who wouldn't?

At the Beginning (Richard Marx and Donna Lewis), Anastasia - I know I've seen this movie but I just couldn't remember seeing it on DVD, will watch it again, if I have time. The song is really popular back then. I remembered one of my officemate played the song & I like how the message of the song would reach your heart. Somehow the song resonated in me. The song is about finding your true love, at first you wouldn't even know if that person is really your true love, no one will ever know at first, right? With all the happiness, storms & challenges you've been through together, you realized that person is the one for you. The one who is destined for you, your true love. No matter the challenges and uncertainties in the future, you'll always be there for each other, fighting and standing still.

You got me (Colbie Caillat), Leap Year - I love this movie so much. Amy Adams is really adorable here and the guy is a real cutie. Ireland is one of those places I want to visit, magical and serene place. The song you got me was played at the end of the movie, where the guy proposed to Amy. The scene is super romantic & the view is stunning, the sun is setting down and the splash of pretty colors, it was a dreamy scene. The song is about a guy whose in-love with you, does everything to make you happy, you can’t resist but want him more; you just can't get enough of him. You always look forward to seeing him, and you just can't imagine life without him, crazy right? But it's the best feeling you can't ignore.  

When you say nothing at all (Ronan Keating), Notting Hill - The song is like the proverb "action speaks louder than words", even if you don't say anything at all, everything reflects on your actions. Even in silence, your special someone knows what's between those actions you’re projecting. 

Grow Old with You (Adam Sandler & Drew Barrymore), The Wedding Singer - This is the most mainstream song ever, I've heard a lot of covers of this on YouTube. Who wouldn't love the song? You would do anything for the person you love, even if you can’t watch your favorite TV Show (WHAT?!). Well, you can check YouTube though.

Way Back into Love (Hugh Grant & Drew Barrymore), Music & Lyrics - The song is about moving on from a past relationship. Being lonely cause you’re still trap from the ghost in your past. And you're just hopeful that someone would bring back the wonderful feeling of being in-love, that makes your heart race & flutters your heartbeat.

Bookshelf Inspiration

Hooray for the month of October! How time flies and I love it! I'm looking forward to 2015 actually. I was browsing through tumblr and found these bookshelf photos which make me come up with this post. I love books so much that I hoard a lot. They say when you read a lot of books, you tend to have good writing skills. A tip which I read over a thousand times on the internet. Sadly, it doesn't have an effect on me. As much as I dream of, I don't have that skill. I love reading and writing too, but my writing is not improving at all. I wish grammar police would visit my blog often so that I can collect more tips from them. I read grammar sites every now and then but forgot most of the grammar rules. Too many rules to consider and you don't even know yourself you're doing it right. I get lost a lot of times. I will do better and just continue writing even though I'm bad at grammar.

Photos below are my bookshelf inspiration. I love the idea of having one, where I can arrange them, have that cute couch and lay around all day just reading. These photos are not mine, credit goes to the owner. (see below for image sources)

Bedroom Inspirations

I've always wanted a room of my own. It gives me the privacy and comfort I need on a daily basis since I'm working at home. Unfortunately, our home is limited of space. There are 8 people living in our cute house and we only have two bedrooms. Our kitchen and living room are connected, we have one bathroom which is inside the master's bedroom. Anyway, one thing that I wish is having my own room, a private and cozy space where I can run to when I wanted to hide away from the world. A room where I can run my imagination freely. I love decorating and cute wallpapers. I love lively, colorful and warm bedroom. Below are my bedroom inspirations, these photos are not mine and credit goes to the owner.
