Hello everyone! Today is a boring day filled with school, tests, and lots of homework. But there are only 28 more days left of school, so that’s definitely a plus. Something that has been a really fun topic for me lately is snail mail. I think it’s so neat to be pen pals with someone and get to know them the old fashioned way. It seems like everyone only calls, emails, or texts these days, and letters are forgotten. But there are so many cute stationary options out there and so many cute things you could do to make your letters beautiful! And just think about how great it would be to open your mailbox and find a bright, colorful letter waiting for you. Read on to discover more about being a pen pal.
Hello everyone! Today’s post is about having a healthy night routine. Sometimes my nights can get so busy and stressful if they are filled with homework and practices and preparing for the next day. It can get to be ten or eleven o’clock before I even go to sleep, and then the next morning I wake up tired and groggy. Recently I’ve (kinda) been able to manage my work and get all of my homework done before it gets too late, so I can relax the rest of the night. Here are a few tips and tricks you can try to have a better night routine.
Hello everyone! Sorry there haven’t been too many posts recently, I’ve just been enjoying my Spring Break and freedom! Even though I’m not doing much, it’s still great to be able to have a week off and relax. During my break, I’ve been doing a lot of photography and practicing taking photos. I use the app called VSCO to edit my photos, I love the different features and filters that there are to offer. You can check out my photos here! Read on to discover how to use VSCO!
Some weeks the meaningless, boring days seem to just drag by as we finish up the school year. But other days, the day seems to just fall together perfectly and nothing goes wrong. You can make those perfect days happen every day, it’s all up to you. If you can think positive and have the mindset that your day will be great, it really will be! There are so many things that could go wrong, but you can’t let them bother you. No matter how stressful your week may be, pick a day to make sure everything goes right, it’s all up to you.

Hello and happy Valentine’s Day! Hope everyone had a great day. Today’s post is about a super effective way to get to sleep faster. I’ve always had trouble getting to sleep sometimes if I’m super busy at school or have a lot going on. I found this method from Pinterest and it works wonders! I use it whenever I need to get to sleep and it hasn’t failed to get me to sleep yet! It even works if you just are in the middle of a stressful day and need to calm down and empty your mind. I even did this at school right before I had a presentation and it helped get rid of my nerves. This method is the best!
I love finding inspiring quotes on Pinterest and thinking about them throughout the day. They motivate me and make me think about what I want to do and how I want to be. If you want, you can check out my other inspiration on my Pinterest board. But here are some of my all time favorites. I also love when they are made with a cute font or background that is pleasing to the eye. It makes a really neat background or wallpaper on a computer or phone, so you can read them throughout the day and be inspired.
I love listening to music. It’s great for bus rides on the way to sports trips. I like my playlist filled with songs that really get me pumped up and excited. These are loud, fast songs that get me ready and energized for the game. I like getting on the bus and curling up with my blanket and earbuds for the way there. And usually, in the locker room and during the warmup, there is always music to get the team pumped up. Here are my favorite pump up songs on my playlist!
What are your favorite songs? Do you have a playlist to get you pumped up? Let me know below!
I love reading, and over the past weekend I had some time to do just that. I started and finished the book Wonder, and I absolutely loved it! It was so good, and I would definitely call it a favorite. It’s very moving and inspiring and it changes the way you look at people. The boy in the book has a very severe facial disorder, so he gets judged a lot. In the inside, he is a regular 10 year old boy, but no one bothers to get to know him. Eventually, he makes friends and people learn how he really is. The author inspires the readers to “Choose Kind” and be nice to everyone. I would definitely recommend this book, it’s a great read!
What is a good book you have read recently? Have you ever read Wonder? Let me know below!
Happy New Year Everyone! Looking back at 2015, I would say that overall it was a great year. I got to do some amazing things and take in some great experiences. My track team did well and got first in every meet, my soccer team won State and went to regionals, I went rock climbing, I got a new best time in cross country, and I went to the beach twice! 2015 was a year of new beginnings. I started this blog back in September, and I’m so glad I did. I also started high school, which so far has been fine! My soccer team got a new coach, who is so much better that our last one. I also became so much closer with some of my friends, and made some new ones as well! I can only hope that 2016 is as good a year or better. I want to start the year off with some resolutions to try and stick to. I know they might end up falling through the cracks halfway or even a quarter of the way through the year, but it’s definitely worth a try!
Hello everyone! Sorry there weren’t any posts for a couple of days. I took a little break around Christmas. My Christmas was fantastic! I loved spending time with family and celebrating Jesus’s birth with them. I received some great gifts this year, and I am so thankful for the presents and the people who gave them to me! I wanted to show my thanks by writing them a thank you letter telling them how grateful I am. I loved my stationary and decorating the letters with my new art supplies!
There are some days when we are in such a rush there’s barely any time to do anything to our hair. At least, it always seems like that to me, so I usually swap out between a few select hairstyles that I like. None of these take more than ten minutes for me, and I have a lot of long, thick hair. Definitely try these hairstyles out if you’re ever in a rush!
1. Divide your hair by your part. Brush it all so it’s completely untangled. Take strands from each side of your head, then cross them over to the back. Braid them down the middle, and secure with a ponytail holder. I usually make the pieces I use pretty big, but you can vary the size. If you use small strands from each side, try braiding or twisting them for extra detail.
This holiday season, everyone is making lists, decorating, visiting family, and making lots of yummy food. While all of those things are very fun to do, there is a much bigger meaning behind Christmas. Some people don’t have enough money for Christmas presents or Christmas dinner. Others might be cold and without heat or blankets during the winter. There are so many things to do this holiday season to give back to your community.
