Looking back at November

Finally finished a page that should have been done back in November. I actually really like how this one turned out

Could anyone tell that I totally overuse the Pink and Blue colour combination? Definitely my favorite.

Inspired by this page by Kelly Purkey

So the past few days of break have been wonderful. I've spent time with family and friends, both of which I miss a ton right now. However it is super nice to have a day all to myself since the last time that happened was... almost five months ago? University sucks up a huge amount of time but I can truthfully say that I love it, no matter how difficult it gets. (exam week is a different story altogether though) One thing I love about breaks though is how much you look forward to them, because when you finally get one it feels so much better sitting around doing nothing for a day or two than sitting around all the time. But I have a  lot of reading to catch up on, so I better get to that!

Christmas Time Is Here!

A couple pictures from my Christmas tree, purposefully left it on the incandescent light WB setting with flash because I liked the blue wintery look.

Can you tell I love reindeer and stars? Thats exactly what my tree is going to be decorated with when I get my own; Reindeer, stars and snowflakes.

Another new page, started and finished on my last day of exams. I definitely put this one off for months just because I didn't have the time to justify crafting rather than sleeping. Finally I'm on Christmas break though, exams are over, and I have 3 whole weeks of free time, so I can't wait to get to all the stuff I haven't been able to do all year.

Pinterest... Again

Just a couple more random pinterest pictures... I'm definitely hooked.

Definitely tried this out today, it's called a waterfall braid. Can't wait till my hair is longer so i can try it like this and curly.

This is completely amazing, I love the colors. I wonder how long it took to make?

If i guy ever sent me this, I would definitely laugh, but he would also be the coolest guy ever.

At the moment this incredibly applies to me.

So I guess it's best to just always be happy :)

I definitely need to start remembering these, both of them are important.

My two best friends came over last weekend and we had a girls night filled with painting our nails,  gossip (of course) and baking cookies!
Making the icing from scratch!

A plate of our decorated cookies :)

K+C+R (that's us!)

Rachel being lazy and watching me do all the work haha

My brother's cookie sandwich. Don't know how he's going to eat it...

Celebrity Status?

So a while ago, before I had graduated from the Junior Achievement program, they asked me to be in their new ad campaign. I thought it would be fun and it was an easy way to get everyone off my back who kept telling me I should be a model since I'm so tall.
Fast forward to this week and all of a sudden I'm getting messages from people telling me pictures of me are hanging in their school. One of them was kind enough to take a picture so I could see...
 I kind of really want one of these for myself! Haha
Can I get a life sized one?

Words to L*ve By

ANother Pinterest themed post, though this one is just quotes that I've collected to far that I want to live or love my life by. 

Just some things to think about. Sometimes I feel like I'm stuck in a rut and not moving anywhere, and then I realize how quickly my life would pass me by if I didn't love and notice every detail of my days. The smaller things have begun to make me happier now: a leaf perfectly veined in frost, a bird and a squirrel freaking out at one another... To remember that our lives are filled with beautiful things other than ourselves is a wake up call. But it makes you more thankful for every moment.
