Friendship Day + What My Closest Friends Taught Me

Image
Hello!
How are you?  I still can’t believe it’s August.  I know I haven't been posting often, but I've been very busy.  Guess what?  Tomorrow is National Friendship Day!  I really wanted to do a post about it, but I'm trying to stick to my blog schedule, so I compromised and posted it today.    

My friends have taught me lots of things.  Sometimes I’ve gotten a little bugged with them, and sometimes I’ve tried their patience.  But not matter what, we stick together.  Here are a few things I’ve learned from my three closest friends.



Lolly (because who is a better friend than my sister?)
Stand up for yourself.  Don’t ever let people walk all over you.  If they don’t care about you, then there is no reason to care about them.
You are safe.  God will always protect you. 
You are loved, and there is nothing that can change that.
It’s okay to cry.  Just don’t lose hope. 
Pip, you just need to sleep.  Everything will seem better in the morning.
The best people are the ones who will be a…

Guess what?


My blogger, writer, batgirl friend is publishing her book!I am thrilled to participate in her blog tour, but it’s kind of nerve racking since I’m the last one posting about it.I mean, it’s the grand finale and all.Anyway, enough about me.This is about Daisy and her amazing book, A Beautiful Disaster.


The girl

Daisy Louise Paquet is an Internet-addicted, self-proclaimed nerd. She likes coffee, books, and sci-fi movies. She may accidentally attack you with sarcasm and Batman references from time to time, but she promises to be nice. She currently resides in a galaxy far, far away with her family and cat.
From Goodreads.


Just look at that gorgeous cover.

The book

Here is the fabulous synopsis that took me forever to find because I don’t have a Goodreads account therefore don’t know how it works.

When Wither is crowned king of the faerie, he knows that it is up to him to free his people from the UnderKingdom, a vast network of mines that his people have been confin…

I am Stronger + Loving Life

Image
Hello, hello!


I must tell the truth, I have no idea where I’m going with this post.I had one written and almost ready to publish in a Word document on my Mom’s computer.Then our Mom went out of town, taking her laptop with her.So here I am, with no idea what to say.


I guess life is always like that.You can plan, prepare, and schedule, but in the end, you don’t know what will happen.Even bad things don’t always end up happening.I need to learn I have no control.Sometimes that’s really scary, but isn’t that what our faith is about?Trusting God to keep us steady when nothing else will?

Over the last few years, my faith has been tested in countless ways.But God always gave me strength to pull through.I can remember crying and crying, I remember the pain and it brings tears to my eyes, but look at me!I am happy, healthy, and loved.No matter what, God was always loving me.And he always will.I have the assurance.

People will let you down, plans will fall through, your last performance will be ca…

I'm Finally Back + Exciting News

Image
Image via Pinterest Hey Everyone!
I seem to have taken a brief (but much needed) blogging hiatus.  I was feeling a little discouraged and uninspired.  This time has helped me to refresh my mind while coming up with tons to talk about in upcoming posts.  And now, even when I finally post again, it's just a short one.  Butone filled with an exciting announcement... 


I checked my number of followers sometime last week.  It was a measly 21.  This was the beginning of my blog burnout.  I was feeling discouraged.  On Saturday I checked my stats, and I had an amazing 90 followers!  It's amazing that people actually want to read my writing.  People all over the place are going to read these words I write.

This afternoon I checked my stats and literally squealed.  I now have a gigantic 222 followers!  I don't know where all of this traffic come from, but I'm not complaining! As a celebration I'm doing a giveaway!  I haven't figured out all of the details yet, so you'll …

How to Achieve Flawless Skin

Image
Perfect skin.  How do people do it?
Today I am here to tell you how to clear up your skin, plus give you support when those spots won’t go away.  But first, keep in mind I am by no means an expert on the subject.  I’m only telling you what works for me.  And above all, remember there is no such this as absolutely flawless skin.  You will always have a few beauty marks, but those were put there especially for you!  Embrace your uniqueness.


I know the feeling of waking up in the morning, not wanting anyone to see your face because it’s covered with spots.So, you layer on the concealer and foundation until you feel presentable.  I hate being uncomfortable about my face.Seriously, I hate it.
A while ago my skin was so flaky and irritated that my foundation started failing me.  I decided to figure out what worked best for my skin and try it out for at least a month, because what I was doing wasn’t working.  And guess what?  My skin is practically perfect and yours can be too!

1. Find your skin…

Early Writing Tag

Image
Hello there!

How was your Forth?  Ours was, um, interesting.  It wasn’t what I expected, but I think it was still good. 
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Last week Abbiee did a wonderful post(and tag) about her horrendous childhood writings.  It was very comical and I enjoyed it very much.  You can read all about it here. But she didn’t stop there!  Abbiee made a tag of her own, which I am proudly participating in, thanks Abbiee!  Let’s dive in!
What horrendous book did you write as a child?
So many.  Seriously, I don’t know what happened to most of them, but there are truly so many.  I guess I’ve always been a writer at heart, but maybe not always a good writer.  I’ll start with the first book I can remember. 

Bosom Friends
I believe I wrote this right after seeing Anne of Green Gables for the first time.  I was only 4 and had no idea how to write anything, so I got my older sister (Lolly) to write, while I dictated.

There were two bosom f…

June Wrap-Up

Image
Happy July!
I feel like June was 3 months piled into one.  I don’t even know how it went by so fast and so slow.  It was filled with good memories and, let’s be honest, maybe a few tears.  It’s okay though, they made it all the sweeter.    

Theatre
If anything describes endings and beginnings, June did just that.  Peter Pan and Wendy ended.  Everything must end eventually, I guess.  Still, the post show depression doesn’t want to go away.  Then, Spotlight started!  Rehearsals are hard, and I’m talking really hard, work.  I was so sore I woke up in the middle of the night from pain.  I’ll let you in on a little secret though, I’m going to have fabulous calf muscles by the end of this show.  ;)


Food
Lolly is one brave little gal.  She is doing the Gaps Diet.  She’s had mono for a while, and now just isn’t feeling that great overall.  This diet is supposed to help heal your gut.  But it’s nasty!  All she can eat right now is this weird butter, bone broth, chicken and overcooked vegetables.  I…
