25 things about me...


The other day I found this blog 'Serendipity Happens'. It's a unique blog with DIY and beauty posts galore! (witch you know I love!)
Karla, the makeup artist who is the author of the blog, once had a post "25 things about me".

That is where I got my inspiration for my post!
(it's weird that lately i've been doing post titles like 'dreams' and know i'm doing a post on 25 things about me! Ok maybe that's not just stood out to me...)

A few weeks ago, I stumbled upon The First Lime. I instantly fell in love with the blog/website and the girl who writes it sounds amazing! (her dog is SO adorable!)
The doodles all over the blog and the story behind the name are equally unique!
Her photography is amazing!

One of the sections of her blog is titled "dreams".
That's where I got the inspiration for this post. :)

History Geek =]

Ciao! (hello in Italian)
*(I was trying to think of a different greeting, when I noticed the connection with the topic! They are both Italian!)*

quick info:
Have you ever heard of the Medici Family? The Medici lived in Florence Italy back in the time of the Renaissance. They were bankers and according to most authorities on the subject, they were also swindlers. They were a very powerful family for over 300 years.

Well I could rattle all night long about History and the Medici family, so I guess I should get to my point for this post!

A museum by my house (Bower's Museum) is having an exhibit on the Gems of the Medici!
Since they were so powerful they had a lot of money to spend!!

Sorry for being so random and everything!


P.S. I have to remind myself never to try and post something past 10 pm!

What's to come....

Hey people!!

So yesterday I started to revamp my old clothes! I've been doing little DIY projects for about a year now.
I finally found some really good videos and  blogs/websites that helped my get my DIYing off the ground!
(I'll show pics later)

I also did a photo shoot with my sister! It was sorta "back-to-school' inspired.
I don't have time to download the pics right now....I'm still working on them.

Well I'm off to the beach! Hope to catch some waves on MY NEW SURFBOARD!!!

School is starting + Happy Labor Day

Hey all and welcome back to school!
One week after Hawaii I headed out for a road trip to Utah. My aunt and uncle (and my cousins) are Christian missionaries there. Their church website is here - check it out!! I love their church so much!
I started school about a week ago. I meant to blog...yet time always slips away from me. About halfway through the summer I promised my mom that if I could redo my room, I would keep it clean.  So far it's worked pretty well! I might post some pics when I'm fully done painting. My cousin and his family went to New York this summer. While there, my cousin (who is 16) entered a Lego contest. He was named one of the 40-some odd winners!!! YAY! He gets to have his Lego creation next to another Lego artist (if that's what you want to call it) in Time Square! This is his SECOND Lego win! Pretty cool!

I'm starting a science class tomorrow. It's going to be hard...but I'm up for the challenge! Since I'm home schooled, my mom was going to buy a curriculum for science. (The science class I took last year is not being offered this year.) I asked if there was any other science class I could take that would be a little more challenging. That is how I got enrolled in the Biola Star classes!

Today consisted of going to Soup Plantation (one of my families favorite restaurants), and then going shopping for some fall/school clothes! (that's always fun!)

bye for now....



My Dad's birthday was yesterday!! hehe!
