Taylor Swift feat Zayn Malik: I Don’t Wanna Live Forever

YOU, YES I AM TALKING TO YOU. STOP WHATEVER YOU DOING.

TAYLOR IS BACK WITH A NEW SONG. OMG.

It’s a totally different sound but I like it, it’s for the movie “Fifty Shades Darker”, she wrote the song with Sam Dew and collaborated with Zayn Malik. The song was produced by Jack Antonoff like mostly everything from Taylor.

It took one week to produce this song as Jack let us know via twitter, Zayn sent his record parts from LA and then they produced it together in one day I think, cause Zayn posted a pic on Instagram were Taylor has a dress that we saw already back in September when they were spotted together with Gigi Hadid.

Been sitting eyes wide open behind these four walls
(Hoping you’d call)
It’s just a cruel existence like there’s no point hoping at all…

Baby, baby, I feel crazy, up all night, all night and every day
Give me something, oh, but you say nothing
What is happening to me?

I don’t wanna live forever, ’cause I know I’ll be living in vain
And I don’t wanna fit wherever
I just wanna keep calling your name until you come back home
I just wanna keep calling your name until you come back home
I just wanna keep calling your name until you come back home!

I’m sitting eyes wide open and I got one thing stuck in my mind
Wondering if I dodged a bullet or just lost the love of my life

Baby, baby, I feel crazy, up all night, all night and every day
I gave you something, but you gave me nothing
What is happening to me?

I don’t wanna live forever, ’cause I know I’ll be living in vain
And I don’t wanna fit (fit, babe) wherever (wherever)
I just wanna keep calling your name until you come back home
I just wanna keep calling your name until you come back home
I just wanna keep calling your name until you come back home

I’ve been looking sad in all the nicest places
Baby, baby, I feel crazy
I see you around in all these empty faces
All night, all night and every day
I’ve been looking sad in all the nicest places
Give me something, oh, but you say nothing
Now I’m in a cab, I tell ’em where your place is
What is happening to me?

I don’t wanna live forever, ’cause I know I’ll be living in vain
And I don’t wanna fit wherever…

I just wanna keep calling your name until you come back home
I just wanna keep calling your name until you come back home
I just wanna keep calling your name until you come back home
I just wanna keep calling your name until you come back home
I just wanna keep calling your name until you come back home

I just wanna keep calling your name until you come back home
Until you come back home…

 

Enjoy..

THEPERKSOFTRAVELLING: Week 2

And I am on time this week YAYAYAYAY… giphy

Simg_7326o this week didn’t start off well, I got really stressed on Mondayimg_7337 at work that I had a cider in the night and though that my life has got to a point where I am tired of the drama that people brings on a daily basis in my life. Plus, winter is here in London, the temperature dropped completely to 4 degrees.

Then on Tuesday I took a bus to get to Oxford Street but theimg_7356 traffic was INSANE, so I got to Trafalgar Square and I walked, in the rain, till Oxford Street, passing by Leicester Square, Piccadilly Circus and Regent Street. It was cold but I needed to take a walk and clear my head.

img_7376On Wednesday, after a few days of lovely fog, London was sunny
but it was FREEEEEZZZZZINNGGGGG!!! And I did a lovely 10 hrs at work because CHRISTMAS ARRIVED IN STARBUCKS. So we needed to set up and I had to go to other stores and carry heavy stuff.

What I can tell you is that the day after, I could have barely move my leg. It was hurting like hell, see when you stop going to gym?

The weekend was nice, I focused on cleaning the house and img_7489cooking and I watched one of my fav movie: New Year’s Eve. It’s a tradition of mine when the end of the year is coming up, I like to watch this movie. It always reminds me of what I achieved and what I didn’t. Plus, I love the soundtrack of the movie.

img_7391Another thing is that on Saturday, it was Bonfire Night and when you live on the 10th floor of a building you can see a lot of fireworks.

 

And this was my week, finishing on today, working.

See you next Sunday,

Francesca

P.S.: I focused a lot on cooking this week, I made a lot of nice food.

Why “A walk to remember” is my favourite movie ever?

Let’s talk about “A Walk To Remember”: for who lived under a rock in the past 12 years, AWTR is the movie about two teenagers falling in love even when they thought it would be impossible since they are really different from each other. Jamie is the daughter of the reverend9d123718ecfcaa16e4af1beaa42901a9 and Landon is the cool kid at school that hang outs only with cool kids. After he drunk some beers at school, the head of the school decided that to make it up of what he did, he had to be a part of the school play. In there, Landon’s journey starts, he get closer to Jamie that tell him that she would have helped him only if he would not fall in love with her (one of the best scene in the movie!). He’s so sure that it won’t happen because he is the rebel guy that won’t fall in love with the good girl. But of course, it happens and as much as she wants to be with him too, she try to fight it, for a bigger secret that she is keeping from him and everybody. Suddenly, she decides to give up on fighting and fell in love with him too.

“Jamie: How can you see places like this… and have moments like this and not believe? Landon: You’re lucky to be so sure. Jamie: It’s like the wind. I can’t… see it, but I feel it.”

After Jamie had a talk with his father, she decides that it’s not fair to keep Landon in the dark. So she revealed her secret to him.

Jamie: I’m sick. Landon: I’ll take you home. You’ll be be… Jamie: No. Landon! I’m sick. I have Leukemia. Landon: No. You’re 18. You – you’re perfect. Jamie: No. I found out two years ago and I’ve stopped responding to treatments. Landon: So why didn’t you tell me?

And that’s where the movie takes another direction, you see how the cool kid is actually really fragile, he wants to have, so much, a relantioship with the father that abandon him and his mother. Even if he is angry to him, a lot, he gives up all the anger when he needs his dad the most. One of my favourite scene is when Landon is in the car and he’s driving back home and he just starts to cry. Oh my. that scene makes me bawl. Jamie, from the other side, doesn’t want to ruin Landon’s life because of her sickness but he just shows, in many ways, how much he loves her, and she is living her last months, in the best ways that she can. (Spoiler alert if you didn’t see the movie!)

Landon: Do you love me? [she nods] Landon: Will you do something for me, then? Jamie: [smiles] Anything. Landon: Will you marry me? [Jamie smiles and kisses him]

That’s it. Who didn’t cry at this scene? His way to say that, makes you believe that there has to be someone like that outside in the world.

Jamie saved my life. She taught me everything. About life, hope and the long journey ahead. I’ll always miss her. But our love is like the wind. I can’t see it, but I can feel it.but-our-love-is-like-the-wind-i-cant-see-it-but-i-can-feel-it_1249

[END SPOILER!]

And the rest is history..or in the music video “Cry” by Mandy Moore

“A walk to remember” is the drama movie based on the best seller novel of Nicholas Spark, or like I call it “the book that I read in one day”. I am, of course, a big fan of Nicholas Sparks, I’ve saw all the movies from his books, and almost read all his books. Then, Adam Shankman, is one of my favourite director, and I love his way of changing loads from the book, but make anyway and amazing movie with the same message that gives the book. Jamie Sullivan doesn’t care about what people says about her, she is herself and believes in what she want to believe, no matter how bad people talk about her. Landon Carter, from the other side, he starts as the bad boy of the situation, but, thanks to Jamie, he sees life from a different view, from Jamie’s view.

The best thing of the movie is that he wants to make all her wishes come true even before he knows that she has cancer. I mean, that’s what every single men should understand. And even if he was young and he had a full life in front of him, he decides to make her first wish, come true.

This movie is my favorite movie ever. You know why? It makes me feel good, it makes me cry a lot, every single time, even if I’ve watched a thousand times, even when I’ll rematch it again, every single time. But, for somebody that kinda gave up on love, a few times, it just takes me an 98 minutes, to believe in love again and hope that there is someone out there for me too, that would make me feel like Landon makes feel Jamie. It might be silly, and sometimes is easier to give up on love, but at the end, how can you feel alive more than this?tumblr_lxg5shhRcO1r5s00a

Mandy Moore and Shane West played perfectly the two characters of the movie that I love more than any others. My favourite movie ever.

Adam Shankman chose the perfect soundtrack too. I’ve never, ever, ever, watch a movie with better soundtrack than this one: Mandy Moore (Only Hope, Cry, Someday We’ll Know, It’s Gonna be Love), Switchfoot (Only Hope, You, Dare you to Move), Cold (No one), Rachael Lampa (If you believe) and more.

To all those people that didn’t watch the movie, watch it now. I’ve made my sister watch it and loads of other people and everybody told me that it was too sad for them. Well, just watch it. It’s worth it.

Love,

Francesca
