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.


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:

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)


  • 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!

Getting Sick in the Holidays/ Sick Expectations vs Reality/What to do if you’re sick

Okay, trust me. Getting sick in the holidays. It happens, in fact, in the middle of my vacation, I got ill, and basically, I caught the flu. You know that hot after, a little less warm weather, AFTER summer? And then when a change of weather jumps in suddenly? When it suddenly gets cold after having a fairly HOT temperature, and you just get a high fever or the flu. Terrible.

And I know, during school you sometimes purposely WANT to get sick, but the problem is that when you “get better”, you’ll have a truck-load of homework, and you’ll be super behind, and trapped in a web of confusion, and, most of the time, there ain’t no superhero, a.k.a, a teacher who wants to be helpful, or a friendly, informative student so, yeah. BUT, the one time you don’t want to get sick is during the holidays, or any form of vacation which allows you to leave school, without having additional work to fill in when you get back. Basically, international holidays, like summer, spring break and winter break. Holidays where you know you aren’t the ONLY one missing school, and if the teachers are on that holiday, well, most probably, you won’t get any homework.

Here’s a quick list of things to do if you’re sick and bored:

  • Sleep: Duh. Even if you’re not sick. Sleep. 😉
  • Listen to an audio book: Reading just hurts my eyes when I’m sick, so, I recommend the tiniest amount of screen time, even though basically, when you get sick, you expect sitting on your bed with popcorn watching movies while everyone is at school having fun. No.
  • Take a hot bubble bath or a warm shower: You can try, I guess.
  • Draw: A hobby.
  • Laugh: Hopefully this post will make you laugh! Or at least smile! 😀

Getting sick

Expectation: Woo hoo! Sitting on your bed in comfy PJ’s and fuzzy socks, watching an awesome movie with popcorn while your friends have to do school. Yay!

Reality:  Sleeping the whole day and crying because your nose is blocked. Dreading the massive amount of homework you’ll have to make up for the next day.


Expectation: Resting on your couch comfortably, with a cup of luxurious warm tea, and happy thoughts.

Reality: Surrounded by disgusting used, snot-filled tissues. Oh, and you can’t find a position to lie in because your nose is blocked and super stuffy. Your eyes hurt badly when you try to read.


Expectation: Mmm! A delicious and nutritious salad with some healthy tea. Healthy, and yummy! Mmm!

Reality: Your throat hurts you too much for you to eat anything, and you’re starving, but there’s “nothing good” to eat. Ugh. 😦

Catching up with the latest gossip on your computer!

Expectations: You’re ahead of your class on everything! And laugh watching some hilarious cat videos.

Reality: Pixels hurt your eyes.

Hot bubble baths

Expectations: Candles, and losing your stuffy nose and relaxing and instantly getting better.

Reality: It’s summer, you’re already burning, and you’re too lazy.

Build a fort

Expectations: Have fun, and relax in a comfy and warm place.

Reality: You’re too lazy and tired. Too sick.

So, if you’re sick right now, reading this, or have ever (you probably have) felt like screaming- Body, Y U NO WANT TO GET BETTER, it’s break, then welcome to life. And get well soon! Hope this made you laugh, because laughing is one of the best medicines, so you’re welcome!  Happy New Years everybody. Everyone’s like, New Year, New Me, and I’m just there like, New Year, Still Perfect. Nah, I’m joking, because no one’s perfect. Have a great 2015, and an awesome school year, and try not to get sick that often, alright?

New Year, New Me

I know my title is super overused, but guess what? It doesn’t matter. I have a lot of personal New Years Resolutions, but I’m going to share my resolutions, the ones that I made for this blog.

A brief moment to go deep into space and think: New Year. It’s true. 365 days have passed, and tomorrow, you are a year older. A year bolder, a year stronger, a year smarter. 2014 has been amazing. It’s had its ups and its had it’s downs. I visited 5 countries. I went to Paris, Atlantis and London for the first time. It was an amazing experience. I don’t know what to write. Oh, yeah, I started blogging this year, after 2 years of thinking about it. It has helped my writing skills tremendously, you don’t even know! We also got a new bunny this year. My point is, there’s been chances in this year, smiles and risks, and sometimes, all at once. It’s hard to take in. 2015. Okay, listen, I’m trying to make this post extremely deep and meaningful, but I ain’t no stinkin’ poet, okay? Okay! :’)

Well, now, I’m going to be sharing my New Years Resolutions, or Goals for 2015, rather. Let’s get on with it.

  1. Post every week.
  2. Post every week, but on certain days?
  3. Always draft 2 posts beforehand.
  4. Draft the post before posting it.
  5. Always put at least 1 picture in each post.
  6. Update all the pages.
  7. Upload all my drawings.
  8. Reach 7,000 views.
  9. Finally do a contest.
  10. Organize categories and put posts in all of them.
  11. Do a scavenger hunt.
  12. Get 300 followers.


A few random thoughts I get every new year:

  1. When I take a shower on December 31st, I can say ‘I haven’t showered since 2014.’
  2. I can say so many thing like I haven’t eaten, brushed my hair/teeth, smiled, MOVED, gotten up from bed since 2014. It just feels weird, even though you know it’s just the next morning, but…do you get what I mean? Oh, New Years.

Also, Google down the countdown until 2015!

Well, I think that’s it. This is my last post before 2015. See you next year.
