So I guess it's a series now... // Internet Obsessions and other Geeky Interests

Hey there,

When I first wrote this kind of post, it was about sharing what I've been obsessed with on the lovely place of the Internet. Even though I do spend a lot of time online, stalking Instagramers, adding things to my baskets just for shopping therapy, and watching vlogs when I should be studying for my finals, I didn't expect to write another post about my Geeky interests. I didn't think I'd find 10 other Internet Obsessions on a monthly basis. But fortunately, I did! I can't confirm that I'll be a monthly kind of thing, I'll just depend on my interaction with Internet and social medias. Anyway, unlike last time, I did manage to find 10 obsessions this time! Guess I did spend a lot of time exploring Youtube and blogs, huh? Without further ado, here's my last Geeky Interests! 


1) Tim Urban Ted Talk
My boyfriend showed me this one, saying it was a must seen. After a few days of this link patiently waiting on the side of my laptop's screen, I finally gave it a go. Tim Urban was invited to do a Ted Talk, in which he decided to talk about procrastination and how everybody is impacted by procrastination. Procrastination has many different forms, it goes from slow delayed things you need to do during the day, to missing actions that lead you in a total anxious and stressful situation. Anyway, I wouldn't say I learned much about procrastination, but it does give you a good insight on procrastination and how it literally affects everybody. So I highly recommend watching this Ted conference, especially since it's not boring at all, and it's actually hilarious. 

2) Public Desire Shoes
One of my friends recommended this website to me during my quest to find the perfect high knees boots. Oops, busted... I know those high knees boots weren't on my seasonal wish list but I've been obsessed with the trend for like, maybe 2 years or so, even before they were actually on trend. Okay, maybe not but that's not the point. You'll be happy to know that I didn't buy any high knee boots from this website... Nope I got mine on the Asos Market Place... I did find some perfect small heeled anckle boots and string sandales from Public Desire. Anyway, let's not talk about how I ruined my shopping diet. You need to check out this website, they have so many different type of shoes with a really reasonable price. The shipping is very quick, and if you're a student and live in the UK or Ireland or anywhere you get the UniDays discount, you get 10% off your purchase. What I love about the website is that you can see pictures of people wearing the item you have your eyes on. 

3) Wish Wish Wish blog
I found Carrie on Instagram, her page was on my recommended pages, I looked at her pictures, immediately loved her style, so I quickly hit the follow button, and started to follow her blog and her life over on Snapchat. I love her constant happiness, her style and how you can ask her something on Snapchat and she responds right away. Now, whenever I'm in need of style inspiration, I go over to her blog. 

4) Pinterest
This should be on the top of my list but I organized in a chronological way rather than a Top 10. Anyway, I've been crazy obsessed with Pinterest lately, pinning every inspirational things like style, makeup, hair do, recipes, home decoration etc. Anything! I love Pinterest, and you can follow me over there, my username is Lipstick Road. I know, mind blowing. I'll be Pinteresting everyday, all day if I could. If it was a job, I'd sign up for this, right away. 

5) The Instagram Husband Video
I'm sure you all heard about this, and if you haven't it's a must see before you continue reading this blog post. I saw this video a few months ago, I think it was around Christmas Time or something, my boyfriend actually showed it to me, which at the time I didn't know if I was supposed to relate or not. I'm obsessed with Instagram, probably more obsessed with Instagram than with Pinterest, but I do not force my boyfriend to take pictures of myself for my page, or maybe I do... I'm not a tyrant anyway! It's the funniest video I've seen, not to take too seriously though. 

6) The Instagram Husband Website
When I first saw the video, I noticed the website as well, so I had a quick look through it. Then, I don't know what happen but I quickly forgot about all of this. Until, a few days ago. I was talking to a friend about the Instagram Husband video that I saw a few months ago, and that I could now relate when I ask my boyfriend, that I call now my Blogger Boyfriend, to take pictures of my uncomfortable self for the blog. When I came home that day, I searched for the video I had already seen, and remembered about the website. I spent 1 hour looking at all the different hilarious posts that make Instagrammers look crazy. But anyway, my favorite parts? The link that sends poor Instagram Husband to this video as a way to seek help. No need to mention that I did spend a good amount of time on this guy's page, watching him destroy iPhones... 

7) Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children Trailer
I'm a big fan of Tim Burton's work, and I love his movies. So you can guess my excitement when I first heard about his new movie coming up, and then when the first trailer came out. I won't tell too much about it. I'll let you enjoy the trailer. And I'll just say that I'll be the first in line when it comes out in theaters.  

8) Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them Trailer
I'm not a real Harry Potter fan, I did watch all of the movies, I do some Harry Potter marathon sometimes, I love some good Harry Potter references but I do not explore the Internet looking for some behind messages, or conspiracy about Who that shall not me named. I haven't read the book, but I look JK Rolling's work and her inspirational quotes. Anyway, I love the whole magical world around her work, and even though I'm not a true HP fan, I'm still as obsessed as one true fan when I watched the trailer of the Harry Potter "spin-off".

9) The most original resume ever
You know when you're searching for a job, and you're applying literally everywhere for a job in Marketing, you tend to question yourself: what's wrong with my resume? Am I not good enough? Well compared to this guy's resume, you're not! I came across Robby Leonardi's website when I was looking at the most original resume ever, and I was not disappointed. His work is amazing and so inspirational. When I grow up I want to be like him! 

10) 73 Questions answered by Taylor Swift 
I love Becky, I mean Taylor Swift, and since I'm really fond of Vogue's 73 Questions videos with celebrities that make their cover, I was really excited when the one with Taylor Swift came out. I love how it gives you an insights on people's life and home. Okay, that sounds weird, but I don't know what to say that won't make me look like a crazy person. Anyway, It's entertaining, and funny, and I think you should watch it. 

That's it for today's post, I hope you like it, let me know what you think in the comments. 

I'll see you soon but until then, don't forget to follow me on Instagram at x3Elsaa, leave a comment if you think I should change my username btw; and on BlogLovin to know when I'm posting something. 

Love,

Elsa.
