Ending This Blog?

So for a while now I've felt like my blog is very 'unprofessional'. I wish that my posts could be better and that I could have a fresh new start.
So that is exactly what I am doing. I am no longer writing on this blog. But, I have made a new blog! Here is the link: Dreams of a Young Writer.
I have just written my first post so please leave a comment and follow my blog!

One Lovely Blog Tag

Hello guys! Welcome back to my blog! So recently Charlie from She Writes tagged me for the One Lovely Blog Tag. Thank you Charlie! Please go check out her blog.



The rules are:
List seven facts about yourself
Tag fifteen other bloggers

I don't have fifteen other bloggers to tag unfortunately so I'll just tag a few people. I tag:

Imogen from Gossiping With Dragons

Beth from Just My Cuppa Tea

Gemma-Rose from Gebbles Writes

So without further ado, let's get on with the post!


FACT 1: I love Star Wars and Lord of the Rings. I have loved Lord of the Rings for years, but I only started to really like Star Wars when I watched all the movies a few months before The Force Awakens came out.
And yes, I have watched The Force Awakens. And yes, it was awesome.


FACT 2: Cinder is my favourite book. Yes, I only read Cinder two days ago. Yes I've read like a hundred other books. But Cinder is my favourite. Really, it's amazing.


FACT 3: I want to be an author. If you didn't know I love books already well then I love books! And writing. I want to be an author of an awesome novel series.


FACT 4: I'm a homeschooler! No, I don't stay in my pyjamas all day. But yes, I stay at home and learn there instead of in a classroom.


FACT 5: I'm obsessed with my dog Gus. Who wouldn't be?


FACT 6: My favourite TV show is Modern Family. I only started watching it halfway through last year, but since then I have loved it so much that it has to be my favourite TV show!


FACT 7: Typo is my favourite shop. I love shopping at Typo! I always find heaps of stuff I want to buy from Typo but then I realise that I don't have the money for it all.



Well that's it for this post! I hope you enjoyed these very random seven facts of me. Please comment if you liked this post and follow if you haven't already!

Bye!

Christmas 2015 and 2016 Resolutions

So I haven't posted in a while but today I must post! Reasons? Well as you guys know Christmas was almost a week ago and its New Years Eve. But also because I have posted a post at least once a month since January.
Anyway, I could blab on about all that forever, but you guys get the picture so lets get into the post :)
So Christmas was awesome! I had a great day and got lots of awesome presents from family and friends.


I was so happy with everything I got! I don't have any pictures of what I got for Christmas so I'll post about that maybe tomorrow.
On Christmas Day we went to my Auntie and Uncle's house for lunch. We had a big, delicious lunch and felt stuffed at the end.
My sister and her boyfriend even came (they live a few hours away).
We came home, played board games, ate, watched a movie, slept.
I had a wonderful Christmas and was sad when it ended, but happy that I got to have such a nice Christmas and will have those memories forever.
Anyways, here is a list of my resolutions for 2016:

  • Eat Healthier
  • Read More
  • Advance in my Drawing Skills
  • Start a Youtube Channel
  • Get Outside More
  • Drink More Water
  • Learn More Spanish
  • Blog More
  • Do More Photography
I am very tired so I should probably get off the computer now and maybe sleep (or stay up until 12am).
I hope you guys had a Merry Christmas! AND HAPPY 2016!!!
Ps. I just found that picture on Pinterest :D

Ten Easy D.I.Y Christmas Presents

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas. The shops are filled with everything Christmas and some people (like me) are already very excited and going through hundreds of Christmas related pins.
And it's not even December! Pfft who cares about that? November the 24th is not too early to start getting excited for Christmas.

I could ramble on for ages about this and that but I may as well get to the point.
I decided to go through Pinterest and find ten easy D.I.Y Christmas presents that you guys just might consider doing. And I'll probably use them myself.

1. Emoji Cushion

How cute is this?! I so need it for myself.


2. Monster Toys


Perfect for my little brothers ;)


3. Phone Cover




4. Wall Art


I found out this from MyLifeAsEva. She did it on a canvas which I suggest doing if you are giving it away as a present.


5. Wire Nail Polish Headband


This is pretty cool!


6. Stuffed Owls


These are really cute!


7. Headband


This is really easy and cute :)


8. Lego Head Pencil holder


My little brothers would love this!


9. Polymer Clay Donut Paper Clips or Charms



I love these! They look super cute! I'll need to get a few more polymer clay packs to make these though.


10. Tic Tac Toe


This is super easy and very cute!


Well that is it for now. I hope you enjoyed this post. Please leave a comment :)

My Birthday!

Over a week ago it was my birthday! Yay! I had a super cool day. In the morning I opened my presents. I got cool headphones, a cute juice carton purse, a cute blue shirt with buttons, a unicorn t-shirt, shoes, a draw something everyday book, a mechanical pencil, nail polish, more clothes, a lego set and I think that's it... Oh yeah! My sister got me a present and she said she would give to me when she visited.
My Headphones :)



My purse :)


My new art book :)


Me and my mum then went out shopping. I bought some more clothes and the lego set. We then went to the food court. I got a milkshake and donut and my mum got a coffee.
Then we came home and sat down for a bit. I built some of my lego set and then we went bowling. We played two games in bowling. In the first game I got 69 points and in the second I got 73.
Then we went home. We had a bonfire and then we watched a movie. I stayed up until about 10:00pm so I was pretty tired the next morning.
I have been having heaps of fun with my art book, I love my purse and I use my headphones a lot. In fact I am using them right now!


Drawings from my art book.
Well that's it for now! Bye!
