Holiday Post, to Bring in December! :)

Hello my dear friends,
I am aware I've been gone from my blog for quite sometime. Because of school I've fallen down on the job. But I would like to introduce to you some holiday items, that you may and or may not have been aware of.

1. Music-The John Tesh radio show, available wherever Kiss Lite Rock is broad casted. He is my favorite he plays Christmas music and gives amazing tidbits called Intelligence for Your Life, it's really fun.

2. Books-The Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens, an excellent one for the avid reader, or if you're not an avid reader How the Grinch Stole Christmas by Dr. Seuss, nothing to strenuous. :)

3. Fashion- Hair, curly and soft volume for long, and for short spiky pixie hair. Clothes sparkles, sequins, etc. Elle magazine suggests some items the link is at the bottom, but for cheaper just as cute items for girls go to Forever 21, Charlotte Russe, or Romy each producing similar products. (If none of the stores are available for you shoot me an e-mail and I'll find other options! :)

4.Movies, Miracle on 34th St., White Christmas, or the ever loved Christmas Story. For your sappy date with your significant other I would suggest It's a Wonderful Life. :)

And that's all for today. I didn't include politics, internet, or History simply because those don't have exciting Christmas connotations. We will continue our pursuit of Holiday-ness as the month continues. And on December 28th I promise to produce a NEW YEARS post. Have fun with these, and I LOVE hearing about Christmas traditions so comment please or e-mail me as always!

With Holiday Cheer,
*Liberty Generation*

Books> The Hunger Games

Hi, everyone! I just started this new-ish series called The Hunger Games. It's pretty good. I read the whole thing and I really liked it. But sometimes you don't want to read it because you're afraid who's gonna' die next. Besides, it's totally unpredictable. Not to mention you freak out when something bad happens. Its ten times worse when you're like me. When I read a book I'm not just reading it, I'm in it. So when something like that happens it freaky! Anyway, its only a trilogy and they are already out. I got a great deal on the box-set on Walmart's website. Yes, they are hard back. It's pretty good but no hints you can look it up to decide what you would want. Here are the three books: #1 The Hunger Games, #2 Catching Fire, #3 Mockingjay. I happen to like them a lot. They are pretty clean. BUT! Its super gory! SUPER GORY! IMAGINATION PEOPLE, BBBBEEEEWWWAAARRREEE!!! But it can still be SUPER exciting. I highly recommend it to people with a need for action/excitement in there lives. This will take care of any craving for something other than your boring life you will ever have.

Monday- Pandora

So lately I've been using the wonderful thing that is Pandora. This wonderful online radio makes me one of the happiest people alive! I love the fact that you can add the music you like and they just play songs like it. I even enjoy their commercials, they play them not too often, at just the right amount. Because sometimes I just need a break from music for their 2 minute commercials. I have four stations right now, One Republic, David Crowder Band, Relient K, and Hawk Nelson. I listen more oft than not to One Republic. I encourage you to get a Pandora account and come hang out with me. You'll love it from your first visit, I promise. :D Get an account, and you won't regret it. I hope to see you all there! :)
P.S. I forgot to tell you, I am under orangekeck@gmail, not Just telling ya!

Saturday- TV Shows: The Mentalist

Okay, this is a pretty new thing to me but I totally love it! It's called the Mentalist its super funny! You guys all know that my favorite TV show is Psych. Well, this is pretty close to Psych.(Note: on the first episode of the 4th season Shawn mentions what he does is like the Mentalist) The only difference is age and maturity level, and those only go up a little bit. The main character, Patrick Jane, is actually super funny except more sarcastic but still funny. Not to mention I love how he dresses. I know weird! Anyway, it's really good just one problem. VERY GRAPHIC! The murder scenes look super real! I usually just glance away just for the heck of it. I don't want to remember most of the junk. Just to let you know I've only seen some of the newest season so (unlike Psych) I'm not an expert. But still so much fun!
WARNING: I watch this with my parents so if there is a "questionable part" they can skip it.

Wednesday Movie Night

So today instead of a post about movies I would like to put out a challenge. Try to watch one movie with a friend or family member, at least once a week. It may seem like a silly way to have quality time, but it actually is great. I have complied a list of my top ten favorite family movies. Here they are

  1. Madagascar, the first one. I love this movie it's great for little kids and hilarious for adults.
  2. Shrek 1 or 2, I am not particularly fond of 3 or 4, but 1 and 2 are amazing!
  3. Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, one of the greatest movies ever! It's very funny and very cute! And completely wholesome.
  4. Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, the original one. My Dad's all time favorite, and one of mine too.
  5. Meet the Robinsons, I love this movie, it's cute and very sweet. It gets a little dark at one part, but the first time I watched it was with my (At the time) three year old niece. I think it's probably my 3rd favorite kid movie.
  6. National Treasure 1 or 2, for viewing with older kids or your best friends. My best friends and I love this movie, we quote it perpetually.
  7. Home Alone 1,2, or 3, I am not a huge fan of 4 but it's not bad. These are great to watch when sick around the holidays!
  8. Cars, I know it's kind of a silly favorite, but man oh man do I like it. It's great!
  9. Robots! This one's kind of old, but it still cracks me up. My dad likes the part where they're in the evil ladies lair.
  10. And Last but not least Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, for the musical lovers this is the best! Only good for older audiences to kids its sooooo boring. But relax and watch as the handsome brothers dance for the beautiful brides, its funny and totally musical.
And that's it, leave me feedback about your favorite and maybe it will become a post!

Tuesday- Fall Fashions

Okay, So we're officially into fall. I would like to introduce you to three good fall trends, and three fall 'don't even think about it' trends.

So well start with the good,

1. Chunky curls for hair, yes ladies skip the straightener, go straight to the curler. Big huge ringlets are back in season. They're beautiful and fun, easily done for the on the go person, to the fashionista.

2. Pearls, tall boots, and plaid. These three fashions will get you into the frenzy of fall like that! I adore pearls, big ones, small ones, white ones, gray ones, any type of pearl is currently being accepted. Tall boots, heeled ones preferably, this chic looks dresses up any outfit, but worn right can make it look smooth and relaxed too. Plaid, so the best way to feel the breeze and chill of fall is to put on a button up plaid shirt, adorable! This lumberjack trend is back and I LOVE it!

3. Scarves! These beautiful add-ons have been a go for a while, but they've really hit home lately coming into these cooler months. Shy away from springy/summery colors, go for deep reds, purples, neutrals, and warmer plaids. Buy the right one and you're on your way to being beautiful!

Okay now on to the 3 'Don't try this at home !' looks.

1. This beautiful woman was made un-beautiful in the effort to make her look like a vampire. I am not saying the whole vampire effect can't be beautiful on some(bright red lipstick, deep smoky eyes, and pale skin), but for most of us regular girls this look makes us look like we've just come from a deep sleep, or gotten a black eye.
2. The whole Ombre hair thing. It just makes you look like you couldn't care less about your roots or that you hated the hair color your poor stylist gave you. I say stay FAR away from Ms. Drew Barrymore's style until her hair returns to a more natural look.
3. And finally our big ugly winner! The whole camel color thing! It's HIDEOUS!!!! I don't know how to get that across to the big designers, but camel is an ugly neutral, do brown, black, white, and my favorite gray. Those are all beauitful choices, but camel. Seriously people! We don't even really like the middle east right now, so why are we mimicking their animal? Just sayin'
Anyway, that's all from me, hope to see you all back next week now that we are getting back into the swing of things.
By the by, please vote on my poll on the side of my blog. Thanks!
Lovely L!bby!

Nancy Drew: Super Mystery's

Yes! Everyone I do know that Nancy Drew is mainly all I talk about, but besides the super mystery's I'm really not reading much else! It feels like people are trying to starve me from good books! And lately the library has been totally against me. For a while it was closed because their putting in like a Town Hall right next to it so you couldn't get to the library AT ALL. And that lasted about two weeks! I know AAAAHHHH! Then the last time we went the power was out (although I could have checked out some books, but I didn't have the strength to go any farther into that pitch black building). Okay! Back to books.

Just recently I just found a new books series much like the new books. In fact it's the same exact stuff as the new books just a little bit different cover. They're the Nancy Drew: Super Mystery's. The only problem is the first one. I didn't really like it because Nancy's 2 friends narrate for her. Evidently Bess, George, & Ned have to find her. Well, there is almost no plot! And every time they try to find her/Nancy it's a dead end. And when they do finally figure it out they're almost TOO LATE!!! I mean I figured it out at like the 5th chapter. I mean they were actin' like a bag of rocks!!! I know I might be overreacting but it really didn't satisfy my need to ND. The next one did! I really liked it, and I think it's funny because George gets her wisdom teeth out! He, he! Anyway, I really liked them. Although their are only three but I will still name them: 1. Where's Nancy? 2. Once Upon a Crime 3. Real Fake (isn't that a kinda' rhetorical name?) Anyway, I'm babbling and that means I need to stop.

ANNOUNCEMENT! All the Libby G. People! Time to get back on the Generation Train! It's school time now so summer vacation is (YES) OVER! So we'd better start and I'll try to fill in here and there but I now that our school has started I have a pretty busy schedule! But I'll still try!
