Happy indigenous peoples day!

I hope your day is great and just letting you know that today is indigenous peoples day!

Thats it, if your curious I’d do some research to find out who’s land your on if you live in the United States. For where I live its the Dakota and Ojibwe people.

I hope the rest of your day is great and I will see you all next time!

Self Care Sunday

Hi!

So this Sunday, and my period so happens to be around the corner. And the topic I’m gonna talk to you about today is eating junk foods. I don’t know if I’ve done a list but here are my top three

1) kettle cooked potato chips

2) Dill Pickle chips (old Dutch kind)

3) Chewy chocolate chips ahoy cookies

So what the point of this list? Firstly, it’s to see if we have anything in common snack wise. Second, this is just my small way of saying that letting your body crave what you eat is totally ok and is a small act of self care. My mom used to tell me when I lived at home that it my body was telling me what I needed. Also to take in moderation, that being said I don’t feel terrible if I eat half the bag of potato chips while I binge watch a documentary on Ted Bundy. It’s knowing your body and what type of fuel you need. But I’m pretty sure majority of people reading this already.

Anyways that’s all I have for this Self Care Sunday, as always I hope the rest of your day is great and I will see you next time!

Favorite fall drinks

Hi, heres a cute list of some of my favorite warm fall beverages!

  • Apple Cider (duh, but honestly this sweetness while working and looking outside is very relaxing to me)
  • Vanilla chai black tea (my favorite morning tea now thanks to my best friend)
  • Hot chocolate ( I know this is a winter drink but for freezing cold mornings)
  • Chia tea (need I say more, no because this taste wonderful)

And that’s really all I could think of at the moment, sorry this list was short but I’ll make it up next week! As always I hope the rest of your day is great and I will see you next time.

Self Care Sunday

Hi, so this Sunday I want to talk about doing makeup.

I don’t know if I’ve talked about it or not but if I have I’m doing it again. As of late I’ve been into no makeup makeup looks. For a base I use glossier then I mainly do light blush, highlighter and eye-shadow. Normally I like to jam out to my current album thank you, next by Arianna Grande. There’s just something about the music in my tiny bathroom that’s fun to me. I have all my makeup sprawled everywhere only to either be left while I leave on my outing or neatly put away after use. I feel like I’m just in this really long 10 minuet routine of doing my makeup. I don’t know do you feel the same way?

Anyways that’s everything for this Sunday’s late post and I hope the rest of your day is great an I will see you next time!

Owning a Japanese Futon

As I said last week I have had my own bed for about three years now, and by the title it’s pretty self explanatory. I did a bunch of research on it for a little bit before I actually bit the bullet an bought this. I watched a bunch of videos on what your supposed to do to take care of it, how it’s made, how the cloth for the sheet is made. I also read up on what I can do as a young women living in the city where a balcony cost extra what else my options are. It’s a Japanese full size so it’s enough for me and one other person to sleep in comfortably that I got from J-life international. I also got a floor pillow as well which I use as throw pillows when I don’t have guest over who like to sit on the floor. I do not have tatami but I’m thinking about getting it in the future, maybe not this year but soon(ish). I did however order a wooden accordion style for under the bed but that won’t be here until October-November from japan. As for right now I have a friend who gave me some memory foam mats that she used for her old dorm back when I first got the bed but now she’s living at home. And my partner can tell a difference but I can’t so yeah there’s that…

Owning this futon was a struggle at first because of living in the dorm and not having enough window space for it to actually air out. Or there was also not having anything to prop it up on so i could actually get underneath. I bought a small bed vacuum that works wonders though, it helps get all the dead skin and moisture out of the bed. With owning this bed I have noticed my posture getting better or how my spine feels when I’m sitting in my chair, its very noticable in comparison to when I didn’t have this bed. It’s also pretty easy to fold up for me in the morning and it helps me get out of bed. I just fold it into an accordion and bam then I fold up my blankets then I have a lot more space in my one bedroom!

I wouldn’t say go out and buy one right now because I can’t force you too. I wont either, it should be your decision and this is only my experience. But if your on the fence about it do more reading on it like I did because it is an investment. Anyways I hope you have a great rest of your day and I will see you all next time!!

Self care Sunday

So it’s been a while since I did this, I have actually been working on this since I stopped I just haven’t been posting it really.. Right now though as I’m typing this up on a sunny Saturday the one thing I like to do is watercolor paint. Yes you heard right Paint, and as of typing this out I’m planning on sketching out something from howls moving castle. I’m going to do some reading today to get ahead for one of my classes.

For me there’s just something about how I can take the time for it to be nice just helps me take that thing slow. It’s also nice to know that if I dont want to show anyone I can do that as well. I’ve been enjoying painting because it’s a different medium than I’m used to, I have never really seriously dove into this type of paint before.

That’s really I had at the moment for this weeks Self care Sunday, I hope this inspired you to take up or get back into a craft you forgot about. As always I hope the rest of your day is great and I will see you next time!

Big sweaters

So by the title you should already know that I love huge sweaters. Preferably in the men’s section for two reasons, the first reason is that its a little bit cheaper to buy in the men’s section. The materials usually softer or thicker so you will be guaranteed warmth on cold nights. Plus for someone small like me if it’s big enough I can just pair it with tights, a long necklace and some chunky boots then Bang!  It looks like I gave all the fucks but really it took me ten minutes to get ready, another five if I wanted to put on makeup and maybe fifteen if I put my hair up in space buns.  Most of my sweaters I find in the men’ section at h&m or thrift stores if that helps. As always I hope the rest of your day is great and I will see you guys next time!

The Sun Is Also A Star

I’m finally doing another book review and Oh my gosh YOU GUYS READ THIS BOOK PLEASE. This book had me in all the feels, I don’t even know where to begin. So let’s start off with where I got the book, Barnes and Noble. Okay so now that’s outta the way, whats the basic synopsis. FATE! (*shakes head*) Yes there’s that, but also love. That’s it, how can you not be hooked already?! I know it’s vague but if you haven’t read it what are you even doing here reading this??? (*disappointed mom look*)

OKAY SO IF YOU HAVEN’T READ THE BOOK LEAVE NOW OR BE PREPARED TO BE SPOILED AND HAVE YOU’RE HEARTBROKEN. (*looks over shoulder*) okay so now that they’re hopefully gone let’s talk about this wonderful work of art.

When I first started reading this I thought it was going to be a normal love dovey book that I would dismiss and never touch again. But that was a hard nope when we were introduced to the characters right off the bat. They were both struggling with life situations. And this is told from two points of view, which I looked for at the time because I loved those types.

When I say I was grabbed by the shoulders and shook, I’m not lying. I brought this book with me everywhere for those four or five-ish days. I was captured so much I forgot about my own problems and was with the characters. Each chapter seemed like there was something to be stressed about, but they each still wanted to be with each other.

On a side note, the thing that I thought was interesting was in the beginning when the author chose to go in the security guards point of view. I didn’t think it was that big of a deal until I read the epilogue. Like it all made sense but still had me in tears.

Though I will say the most laughable part was when Daniel took Natasha to meet his family.  I was cringing and laughing at this part. (what about you guys?)

Now as I’m finally finishing up this book review in 2019 it was announced that it’ll become a motion picture! I already saw the trailer and am stocked. So I rate this a nine out of ten. The only reason is I thought they would end up together but they did keep a splash of reality in there which I highly enjoyed. As always I hope the rest of your day is great and I will see you guys next time!

BUY THE BOOK ITS AMAZING
