Travel Essentials

Hello everyone! So I’m a frequent flyer, in fact, I even write little diary posts on this blog about my travels. Recently I visited Turkey, and it was beautiful. Before that I visited 2 or 3 other countries, that I did not publish on this blog, and I didn’t publish anything about my days in Turkey, as I just didn’t feel like it. I wanted to relax, you know?

Today I will be posting about my Travel Essentials for traveling. And I’m not talking basics- like outfits, and shoes and blah blah blah.

TO THE AIRPORT::

I always take a small purse or a small bag pack to the airport to carry little things that I absolutely NEED, especially if it’s a long flight.

:: Contents ::

  • Gum
  • Headphones
  • iPhone
  • A book or two
  • Sleeping Mask
  • Wallet
  • Tickets, passport, etc.
  • Small snack
  • Tissues
  • Pen
  • A small journal. I always write about my trip, because it’s just really exciting to read it after.
  • Mirror
  • Small Hairbrush/ Hair ties
  • Portable Charger

That’s quite a lot, but JUST IN CASE, you NEED them.

That’s all for today, thank you for reading, and you can check out my traveling diaries series right here:

Nutella Cake in 2 minutes

Hey, so it’s been a while since I posted. I’ve been so busy with school, and it’s the time of the year when most bloggers just quit posting or take a break, but I don’t want to do that, because I made a commitment, and I love blogging, and I know if you take breaks or shortcuts, it’s much harder to get back up. On a completely unrelated- but still very important note- it’s raining. It’s raining so hard, but the sound is so… relaxing. I’m sitting at my desk by the window, experiencing the soft cold wind, the beautiful rain smell, and the relaxing sound.

Anyways, so today I wanted to whip up a quick desert, and there’s this recipe I found that I wanted to try out, but I couldn’t at that time because one of the main ingredients was missing. Today I bought that main ingredient- nutella. So are you ready for something that’s basically going to be your breakfast/lunch/dinner from now on? You’re going to love it so much. So. Much. So much, that senpai will notice it. Senpai won’t notice YOU, but they will most definitely notice recipe. Sorry, but that’s just how it works. Okay? Okay.

Now you probably know the many, many, many, many, many ways you can enjoy Nutella. On a cracker, in a sandwich- or even just with a spoon. But think of something greater. Something that can change history. NUTELLA CAKE. In 2 minutes. Yes. Are you ready? Okay-

                                                                                   ©

Ingredients

4 tablespoons self-rising flour

4 tablespoons sugar

1 egg

3 tablespoons cocoa powder

3 tablespoons Nutella

3 tablespoons milk

3 tablespoons vegetable oil

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Combine all ingredients in a bowl.
  2. Pour ingredients in the largest mug you own.
  3. Microwave on high for 2-3 minutes (Depends on what microwave you have)
  4. When it’s finished and has cooled down a bit, add an extra dump of nutella on it, and then whipped cream.

Tell me if you try it out!

Enjoy this delicious and quick dessert!

Tutorial Tuesday- Button Bookmarks

button bookmarks

©

Hello, everyone! Sorry for not posting last week, I’ve had quite a lot of schoolwork lately, anyways, welcome to our first Tutorial Tuesday. Now our library passes out these boring, ugly, plain bookmarks whenever you check out a book. Bookmarks are important, not just for reading, also for notes, and blah, blah. Let’s refer to them as place holders, and they have to be more stable then just sticky-notes.

You will need:

  • hot glue
  • felt
  • fancy buttons (flower shaped, heart shaped, etc.)
  • paperclips (colored or silver)

Directions:

  • Simply hot glue your paperclip to the back of your button (ask for assistance if needed)
  • Cute a small piece of felt to go on top
  • The felt will keep the glue sealed in and leave a smooth finish.
  • And there you go.

These make great gifts, and you can get creative with all the different tips of buttons and matches you can make. Just slip them onto a card, and voila!

Your Guide to Survive School

Hello! Here I am today, ready to start my first post since I updated my blog. If you haven’t checked out/noticed all of them out, here’s what I changed:

  • I updated my widget bar.
  • I updated the sticky-post titled “Welcome.”
  • On the sidebar, you can see I updated my mini-about section, and my Mini Twitter
  • Cleared up the pages, added and deleted and such.
  • I want to start this new thing where I review blogs, so if you would like your blog to be reviews, please comment below your name (the name you go by on your blog), your blog’s name and of course, your blog’s URL.
  • My blog felt empty nameless, so I named it Dreamative, the combination of ‘Dream’ and ‘Creative’.
  • New background, header, etc.
  • Will give MORE effort to edit my posts, because, well, you know.

ησω, ι’м gσιηg тσ вє ρσѕтιηg тυтσяιαℓѕ ση тυєѕ∂αу, вυт уσυ ¢αη єχρє¢т α яєgυℓαя ρσѕт αηу ∂αу σƒ тнє ωєєк.

                             

So it’s a few weeks into school already, and we all know how difficult it is to get used to being around…people, after a gorgeous month in bed with your computer. Ugh. So today, I’m going to be sharing a few life cheats. This is the ultimate guide to surviving school. I’m going to put together some outfits and show you them, show you accessories, hair and of course, Tips ‘n Tricks AND hilarious comebacks! Bonus: 6 ways to annoy your teacher.

Tips ‘n Tricks

  1. Remember where you parked: Take a photo of closest parking sign to where you parked so you won’t forget the location.
  2. If you get brain freeze from eating something cold too quickly, press your tongue against the roof of your mouth as hard as you can
  3. Shoes too small? Put on 3 pairs of socks, put the shoes on, then blow-dry for 10 minutes. They’ll fit perfectly. Ohmygod, this is so… wow.
  4. Frizzy hair? Coating it in butter, then leaving it overnight will make it straighter and much glossier.
  5. Chew on cinnamon flavored gum to stay awake during class.
  6. When at a drive-thru, ask for unsalted fries. This will guarantee the fries will be fresh out of the fryer.
  7. To cut onions without tearing up, chew gum.

Hilarious Comebacks

  • If you’re gonna be two-faced, at LEAST make ONE of them pretty.
  • Too many freaks, not enough circuses.
  • How come I always wear these clothes? How come YOU always wear that mask?
  • *You’re ugly*             *Pat on head* “Life must be tough for the visually impaired.
  • I’m trying to imagine you with a personality.
  • I love your new shoes! Have you been shopping lately? I heard they’re selling lives at the mall, you totally should go get one.
  • I’ve had snappier comebacks from a bowl of Rice Crispies.

3 outfits

You can NEVER go wrong with Aztec/tribal tights, a plain sweater and a colored scarf with your most comfy boots.

This is by far my favorite, simple black tights, these extremely cute boots, and of course, a over sized sweater, and a scarf, paired with whatever accessories you desire.

The last outfit is casual, trendy, lazy and cute, all at the same time with some casual jeans, cute boots with knee-socks, which always look cute, especially if you decide to show them with your boots.

3 Simple, Cute, Easy and Quick hairstyles

BONUS: How to Annoy your teacher

* These are just meant for humor, I suggest you don’t actually try these.

  1. When the teacher says ‘Take a seat’, actually life a seat up, and then innocently ask, “Okay. Now where do I take it?”
  2. Sharpen your pencil with a mechanical pencil sharper (you usually have them in a classroom) and sharpen it when the teacher is talking. Stop, wait for them to speak again. When they start talking again, sharpen again.
  3. If the teacher says to stop sharping your pencil, conveniently break the led and say, “BUT I HAVE NOTHING TO WRITE WITH!!”
  4. Purposely sing horribly while taking notes. Sing the song that currently everyone hates. May I suggest ‘Best of Both Words?’
  5. ‘Accidentally’ call them mom throughout that class.
  6. During a test, yell across the room, “I DON’T UNDERSTAND SIGN LANGUAGE! JUST TELL ME THE ANSWER!!”

And, that’s it! I hope you enjoyed this Guide, thank you for reading! See you next week for Tutorials Tuesday!
