Tulips & Daffodils

Hey guys! It’s been almost a week since I’ve posted, I’ve been meaning to but I have been a little busy. Me & my mom opened an Etsy shop together, I have been focusing on getting that setup and everything. We’ve also been having some great weather so I got out and enjoyed it..did some yard work, planted flowers and just hung around with family. But since yesterday, the weather has been hot, at least to me as I don’t like or do good in hot weather..we reached 87 degrees yesterday and 84 degrees today! Ugh, I’m over Summer already. Yesterday was also a terrible day for me, besides the heat..I just recently got a new phone and the screen shattered..I accidentally drop it, even with a case..I suspect the heart may have had a little affect on it being it was so warm. So, bear with me on my photos until I receive a new phone thank goodness for protection plans!

Anyhow, I thought I would share some pictures of my Spring flowers that bloomed over the past few weeks/months. They were very pretty but didn’t last too long because the weather was acting crazy..and it frosted. They came up in March when normally they don’t until May..ugh Mother Nature, get your head together!

Lots of photos. I love taking pictures of them though and using them as wallpapers for my computer & phone.

I hope you all enjoyed this post & I brought some happiness to your day. Chat later!

Happy Thanksgiving & update!

Happy Thanksgiving to you all that celebrate it! I spent the day with my family, aunt & cousins. I also tackled making 2 pies from scratch or I should say almost all from scratch. They were a hit even though it’s the first time I made them.

Anyhow onto the update..

I’ve got a few more nail art posts coming your way this week & next. I might also throw in a few others. I’m trying to post about different things and not so much nails all the time. Like I mentioned in an update post prior to this I’m leaning away from makeup lately. Today was the first time I put makeup on in months! Whoo. I’m going to be doing a book review soon on the book I’m currently reading, almost done. I’m going to also try and share some christmas diys and maybe a few recipes I find and make. Lately, I’ve been trying to get into more baking things for the holidays.

So I think that’s all for now..just really wanted to say Happy Thanksgiving!

Thanksgiving Pinterest Finds!

Hey guys! Since I shared some Fall ideas that I found on Pinterest I thought why not share some Thanksgiving ones? So I went on the hunt and found a bunch!

Turkey – So I found this pin that has a picture that explains how to cook a turkey, make gravy from the fat and how to carve it! My number one thing is make sure you thaw it for the right amount of hours! 24 hours for every 4-5lbs. Here’s the link.

Thanksgiving Dessert – Who doesn’t like rice krispies? I found a pin that shows you how to make them shaped & look like turkey legs! The one thing I would do that the pin doesn’t, is try to dye the rice krispies brown to look crispy. Here’s the link.

Thanksgiving Decoration – I found this easy & simple looking diy candle holder idea! You take a glass cylinder..place a candle inside..fill the cylinder halfway with popcorn kernels. Last but not least tie a bow with straw. I love this..if you were to do a medium one and two smaller ones, it would look great as a table centerpiece I think! Here’s the link.

Thanksgiving Craft – Have kids coming over and what to keep them occupied while waiting for dinner? I found this pin to make pinecone turkey’s. It looks like all you need is pinecones, craft feathers, google eyes, and felt to make a nose. These are just so simple and cute! Here’s the link.

Quote – I couldn’t make a pinterest post without adding a quote. I found this quote especially for Thanksgiving. Always be thankful for the things you have..not just on Thanksgiving but every day of your life! Here’s the link.

A life post.

Hey guys. I’ve had a lot going on in my personal life lately and I thought I would jump on here to vent a little and just share my story.

Some of you may know I graduated from high school at 15. It’s been 3 years and I still haven’t done any much for my future. I’m undecided but I have an idea of what I would like to do. I’m 18 now and so I can finally work towards my ideas/dreams. The problem is support and pressure. Getting a job will be difficult for me. I can’t bend or twist..and I have a weight restriction do to having scoliosis and rods in my spine. College is something I’ve always dreamed about but I have my doubts. I’m not sure what I would want to go for. One thing I have gained a passion for is making wreaths. I’ve been making them off and on for a few months or so. My new dream I believe is to make a work at home business one..think that sounds right. I want to make selling wreaths my job. It’s something I can do physically and something I enjoy. I’ve always had a niche for crafting.

Like I mentioned above support and pressure is my problem with going forward. My parents 100% agree with me and just tell me to take my time and not too rush. Time goes fast enough to began with. My whole dad’s side of the family doesn’t support my idea or dream. They think I need to get my butt up and go get a ‘real’ job. They put a lot pressure and put me down a lot. I don’t want to over do my back..because the last thing I want is a ton of pain everyday. I can only do what I am capable right? that’s what I think. I just want to work at pursuing my dream..but without support, especially from family it’s difficult.

I’m not going to let it get me down anymore though. I’m going to pursue it. One day I’ll prove them wrong..that you don’t have to go get a ‘real’ job because owning your own business is a real job. And if it doesn’t work out, I’ll plan a backup plan but I’m going to shoot for the stars.

Never let anyone get you down..if your shooting for something go for it! There’s no reason to let someone tell you, you can’t. Believe in yourself, you know what you can do and what your capable of.

I just needed to vent and while doing so I hope I uplifted some you! Stay positive when doing anything even when times get tough.

Favorite TV Shows!

Hey guys. I’ve been doing a lot of random topic posts lately, mainly because I’m trying to figure out what exactly I want my blog to be about. I’m thinking nails, books, and lifestyle things. Anyway, in today’s post I’m going to share the tv shows that I’ve been addicted to the past month or two.

60 Days In – i actually got hooked on to this show by my boyfriend. it’s about a jail in Indiana that needs re-structured..basically the inmates are starting to take over it. the sheriff ends up bringing in regular people that haven’t done any crimes to go undercover and basically be inmates for two months. 8 people. the show just finished season 2. i wanted both seasons and i don’t think there with be another but maybe in another? not sure.

Little Women LA, Atlanta, Dallas, New York – i’ve been addicted to every spinoff of the little women series. LA & Atlanta just finished seasons but Dallas just started a week ago and i’m hooked! New York hasn’t came out with another yet..i’m hoping they do though. all series is all about different little women living life..there is a lot of drama but sometimes it’s funny. i love all the seasons.

I Love Kellie Pickler – this show just finished it’s second season also! i love watching her..her accent is to die for. her episodes are basically themed, i guess is how i would say it..like a show was about going to Japan? i think, tonight’s episode was about her attending a Chris Kyle memorial event. i just love her..every episode can make you laugh!

Teen Mom – i have watched every single episode & spinoff from this series. i’ve seen the original teen mom, teen mom 2, & 3. also every 16 and pregnant. if you’ve never heard about this show, 4 girls got pregnant at the age of 16 and shared the story about being a teen mom. there’s several different girls..i don’t like all of them but still love watching them all!

The Fosters – i got hooked on this show from scrolling through netflix one night. i’m now on season 2. it’s about these 2 woman who are married to each other and they are foster parents & have adopted the ones they’ve fostered. well, they end up taking in a teen named Callie who just got out of a juvenile home. she ends up sneaking away to get her brother out of the bad home he’s in. they end up getting into a bad situation. anyhow, Callie ends up getting into more trouble as the episodes go on..they leave you hanging every time. i’ve stayed up way too late watching them, haha.

Worst Bakers & Worst Cooks in America – worst cooks in america has several different seasons but worst bakers just finished it’s first season a few weeks ago. in these series they find the worst cooks & bakers and they are coached by professional chefs & bakers..they one by one get eliminated and then the ones left cook/bake for judges..whoever has the best dishes wins $25,000!

Halloween Baking Championship & Holiday Baking Championship- i love these series too! they pick people that are good at baking to be on the show..they end up contending to win money..each week someone gets eliminated until there’s 3 left and then they choose the best one at the end.

Flea Market Flip – this show is about 2 teams going to a flea market with a $500 budget. they have to buy 3 items that fit a category, fix them up and then re-sell them at a flea market. whatever team makes the bigger profit wins $5,000.

Sorry for such a long post but these are my favorite shows currently.

What is there to love about Fall?

Hi guys! I thought I would write a post about Fall and what I like about this season..it’s one of my favorite.

  1. leaves changing..I live in Michigan and our leaves started to change a few weeks ago but this week they are so bright and colorful. I love watching the leaves just fall and wind down to the ground. I love how they layer the yard with multiple colors and make it pretty!
  2. chilly air..I love when the feel in the air changes..it get’s just a little more chilly each week. It makes me feel relaxed and rejuvenated.
  3. fall smells..I don’t mean I like all the fall smells only a few. I don’t like the smell of leaves burning or any pumpkin or cinnamon because I’m allergic.  I like the maple, apple, toasty smells more than anything!
  4. just the cozyness..I love feeling nice and cozy at night when the air drops..it just brings the family all together again after a summer full of fun.

What’s your favorite thing about Fall?

Things I’ve Been Loving Lately

hey guys!

So I just wanted to jump on here and write a laid back post about what I’ve been loving lately. It’s a been a crazy month so far..just a lot of things going on but I always take time to wind down and relax.

1. I’ve been loving tv lately. I’m not one that normally watches tv all time but I found new shows that I’m getting into..I’m going to write another post about my favorite shows but one that’s caught my eye is Married at First Sight, it’s a reality show but I’m hooked.

2. The game called Township! I started playing this game on my phone months ago but lately I can’t put it away..check it out. You build a town, have farm animals, grow vegetables, you also can mine and make things in different factories.

3. Sweatpants! The weather is getting real chilly here and I’ve been more into my fuzzy pajama pants along with sweatpants..lounging all day long.

4. The Sims 2! I used to play this computer game all the time when I was younger and the other day I noticed it in the App Store and I bought it..addicted to it all over again.

That’s about all I can think of right now on the top of my head..just a random post..haha!
