13 random facts about me! ;)

Hey everyone!
So I realized, you guys don't really know that much about me, so I've created a list of random facts about me so you can get to know me better.

1. I am a vegetarian.
2. My dream is to one day travel to Alaska, and see the aurora borealis.

3. I have green eyes.
4. I love to write letters to my penpals.
5. I love super spicy food, and put fire sauce all over mexican food.

6. I love to drink tea (I've been thinking, would anyone be interested in me hosting a tea exchange with you guys? Do you even drink tea? :))
7. My favourite colour is purple.
8. One of my favourite movies is Frozen (my favourite character is probably Elsa, but I really like Olaf and Anna too.) ;)

9. I love Krispy Kreme doughnuts! Mm mm! :)
10. I love astronomy. I love to learn about anything and everything in space. But sadly I live in the city so you can't really see the stars that well or see the milky way. :/

11. I'm weird, silly, and clumsy.
12. I'm the only person in my family with red hair.
13. I absolutely love cats! I even have cat leggings. If you refer back to fact 10 about me, you'll notice that I like astronomy. The cats on the leggings are jumping through space. I told you I was weird. ;)

Here's a pic of my leggings. ;)

So did you guys like this kind of post?

Have a great day!

So I would love it if you would send me pictures of the outfit you wore, or bracelets you've made, or anything really! I'll be doing a special post with the outfits and things (assuming I get a response. ;)) ! I'll probably post these outfits over the next weekend after orange day.
Here's how it'll work. If you have a blog, then comment below and I will go over to your blog and contact you through email. If you don't have a blog, then comment below with your email address. Sound good?

Orange Fishtail bracelets for orange day

Hey everyone! So today I have a tutorial on how to make an orange fishtail bracelet. I am specifically making these for orange day coming up. :)
I don't have a video because I didn't have enough room on my phone to make one, but I do have a few pictures and I hope those are helpful.

You don't really need this many bands, I just grabbed a handful.
If you notice, you can see my shadow taking the picture. :P

This is how you start off. Just take one of the bands and make sort of a figure 8 on your fingers.

Then on top of that figure 8 add two more bands.
Ok, so then you take that figure 8 band and pull it over top of the other two bands.
Does that make sense?
Then add another band and pull the bottom band over again.
You keep doing this until you get the desired length.
Then all you have to do is hook the S hook to both ends.

Pull the bottom ring over the top rings like seen in this picture. ;)

This is the finished product.
Do you like them?
Do you understand how to make them? If you don't I can go into more detail and help you. :)
Have a great day!

Mug exchange goodies

Hey everyone! So recently I participated in a mug exchange through a blog I read, The Enchanting Rose! It was lots of fun, because I got to know 2 new girls. :)
Today I'm sharing with you my goodies I got from Margaret-Sophie!

I just love this mug! It is so cute, and I love how it has a little spoon to stir my tea. :)

I really like all the flowers on it. It's so me.

Isn't this washcloth so cute?

I really like all the colours on this cloth! They're all so different, yet they go together so well.
Unfortunately, I don't have any pictures of the hot cocoa, apple cider, tea, biscotti, or dark chocolate she got me because I was so excited to eat them, I didn't think of taking pictures beforehand. ;) 
Thank you guys for stopping by! I had so much fun participating in this mug exchange!
Have a great day!

Book review: The Natural Pregnancy Book

Hey everyone! So today I have a book review to share with you guys! When  I get older, I would like to be a doula, so the book today is called The Natural Pregnancy Book. It was perfect because it gave me a lot of information on natural ways to ease pain and discomfort using herbs and massages, instead of medicines.
This book covers topics like herbal preparation, safe herbs to use during pregnancy, and prenatal care. It focus more on midwifery and birthing at home, rather than in a hospital with a doctor. I would recommend this book for anyone interested in midwifery and becoming a doula. It's also really good for expecting mothers who would like to have a natural pregnancy. One thing I really enjoyed about The Natural Pregnancy Book is that it gives herbal uses and exercises for some common concerns in pregnancy. For example, for iron deficiency anemia they recommend you eat foods like seaweeds (kelp and dulse specifically) because they are a good source of iron.


Have a great day!
   I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review.

Encouraging Bible verses about hope

Hey everyone!
Today I have some Bible verses about hope to share with you. These Bible verses will help you when you're going through a tough time and need a little reminder that God is always there for you.

2 Corinthians 4:16-18
"Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day.  For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal."

Psalm 27:4-5
 "One thing I ask from the Lord, this only do I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to gaze on the beauty of the Lord and to seek him in his temple.  For in the day of trouble he will keep me safe in his dwelling; he will hide me in the shelter of his sacred tent
and set me high upon a rock."
Zephaniah 3:17
The Lord your God is with you, the Mighty Warrior who saves. He will take great delight in you;
in his love he will no longer rebuke you, but will rejoice over you with singing.”
Revelation 21:4
 "He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.”
John 6:33
"I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world." 
Psalms 46:1
"God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.
Hebrews 11:1
"Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see."  
1 Thessalonians 4:13
"Brothers and sisters, we do not want you to be uninformed about those who sleep in death, so that you do not grieve like the rest, who have no hope."  
Jeremiah 29:11
"For I know the plans I have for you", says the Lord, "plans to prosper you, and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."
Have any comments? Are any of you guys going through a tough time? Do you have a topic you would like me to feature (joy, peace, love, etc.)?
Have a great day!
