Song of the day

Standard

Salam dear readers,

It’s been a while since I did this.

Fact about me: I like songs with a message, a purpose. I love good music.

This is a song that I first heard a year ago, and I really love it. I respect this artist, and I’m very obsessed with most of his songs; I know that I’m definitely not the only one. Whenever I feel stressed, sad or moody; or even better, when I’m happy (anytime, anywhere actually) I listen to his songs.

This one has beautiful words, with a beautiful massage, and a beautiful rhythm (again most of his songs have that). Not so many people talk about this though (I know, even if it has 4,039,024 views on YouTube) , and I think they should.

As a Muslim and an Arab, his songs appeal to me, because of its message, values, and meaning. But even if you’re not an Arab or a Muslim, I highly recommend this for you. It has the English translation on it, so you will enjoy it for sure.

I know many talk about “اضحك“”Smile”,”كن أنت“”Be you”, and “لغات العالم“”the language of the words”; which are the most famous; these are my favorite as well. This one is really worth listening to; so go and do it if you didn’t already.

Talk to you soon insha’ALLAH.

My Top BookTubers

Standard

Salam dear friends,

Hope you’re doing really good 🙂

Today, I decided to share with you something that really makes me happy, and it’s a thing that I do every single day, which is:  Watching Booktube, different amazing booktubers. YES, that’s my guilty pleasure.

I may not have said this before, but I really think of starting my own channel on YouTube, talking about books and things that interest me. I actually thought about this for years, and I just need that little push and determination, and most of all: commitment.

For the people who may not know,  booktubers are a community of people who vlog about books on YouTube. I choose today to talk about people who do much more spontaneous videos, like “books reviews”, “top favorite books”, “book hauls”, ” TBR” and wrap ups. Of course, they are the other channels which talk about books in a funny way like The Lizzie Bennet Diaries, oh I love that, but I’m going to talk about it next time in a whole complete post, happy ??? 

There is no particular order in this. I love them all equally, and I really enjoy most of their videos. I’ll do a sequel for this post for sure, because there are so many other booktubers that you need to watch for sure.

Catriona from Little Book Owl

Megan from PeruseProject

Sanne from booksandquills

Katy from Katytastic.

Sasha from abookutopia

Zoe from readbyzoe

You may have noticed that they are all females, but this is due to:

  1. Most of the booktubers are females, go and check.

  2. All my Favorited females. I couldn’t find a male booktuber that makes me happy and love books more than these ladies. Of course, VlogBrothers are good, and I enjoyed some of their of videos, but they are not on my top list, sorry.

That’s it for today. Let me know in the comments if  you agree with this??? or do you have different list. I’ll be happy to discover some new channels for sure.

Talk to you very soon insha’ALLAH.

Salam dear friends,

I hope you’re doing great. I didn’t post a thing during the last month. I was travelling and super busy, and…. But, I’m back now.

This post is a very fun one. During the holiday, I read many books; but Bossypants was the one that always in my bag for the last month, and has traveled with me to many cities, saw many beaches, mountains, rivers and roads. I liked this book. It’s funny and worth reading, though I didn’t like some parts ( a review is coming very soon).

Many of these pictures I’ve already posted in my Instagram account, follow me there (https://instagram.com/kaoutar_chahbane/).  In this post, there is a book and it’s in different places. Enjoy reading (actually, seeing :p ) .. Waiting for your comments 🙂

Salam dear friends,

So, I love rain… I think that this weather is just magical and miraculous, and to relate it to bad luck, and ugly things is a criminal act.. I know, I’m using big words here, but that’s just the the “rain lover self” talking 😉

I feel very optimistic in a cloudy rainy day.. Strange, isn’t it?? But, it’s 100% true 😉

Yesterday, I got wet in the rain.. It was a beautiful day 🙂

I took this yesterday when it just started raining

There are many many reasons to start loving rain.. Here are some of them 😀

  • First things first, No rain, NO rainbows.. No need to explain that more 😉

  • It is so beautiful to hear the raindrops.. I really enjoy that 🙂

  • It’s always fun to walk, sing, and dance in the RAIN 😀 I did them all 😉 😉

  • It’s better to fall asleep to the sound of the rain.. Don’t you think??

  • As a books lover, reading a book while it’s raining is so so so so so so much better ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤

I have many other reasons, but I will share them later.. Keep following my blog and loving the rain 😉

Things to know… It’s never too late to start…

Salam dear friends,

When we meet ourselves...  :/

When we meet ourselves… :/

Life is full of experiences, difficult moments, and challenges… But -fortunately- that’s not all 🙂 🙂

Life is full of happy moments that we keep on avoiding.. These are few thing to start knowing and doing to be OK 🙂 😉

  1. Be yourself, be happy, or just try.
  2. Exercise so that you feel good, not so that your body looks good 😉 😉 😉
  3. Laugh at yourself.
  4. Sometimes you have to say “No”…Say “no” and mean it.
  5. Surround yourself with people who allow you to be your best self.
  6. Friendships are absolutely essential to your well-being.
  7. Enjoy this time in your life, but trust that the best is yet to come.
  8. It’s OK to change your mind, behavior, and attitudes.

So… Here are 10 simple things to do so to change that… Enjoy 😉

I'm glad I was able to catch this moment :)
