More from the S.B.L.’15

Hey everyone! Here are some of the remaining bucket list items which I attempted (yes, yes, I know – this post is hella late).

Oh, & this may be obvious, but I’m kinda rushing through this post.

#19.Make a fabulous cake.

It looked better before I stuck it into the refrigerator. Seriously.

Ta-da.

 

#24.Make a lyric drawing.

I’m a bit in love with this song. And I’m really proud of that door in the corner, I don’t know why.

#55.See the sunset.

I don’t have any words for this.

#44. Eye bomb.

Hehehehe.

Pine-ing after you.

Bear-y funny.

I SEE your mischief.

 

#49.Have a pet rock.

I painted a stone. It was rock-ing. (Pun might’ve been intended.)

Woof.

I did some other list items too, but I don’t have any pictures for them, so I’ll just summarise them.

#64.Go bicycling.

I did this with two of my friends. It was all fun & games until my friend’s bicycle broke down in the middle of a road. What even.

#56.Glow in the dark bubbles.

This was a Pinterest fail. Nothing – literally nothing – happened. I poured the glow stick solution into the bubble mix & blowed some bubbles, but they were just ordinary ones. They didn’t glow. Sad.

#34.Ding Dong Ditch.

This was kinda fun. I was walking around the neighbourhood with my friends & out of nowhere we decided to attempt this. Heeheehee.

I won’t be on much in the coming few months, so I’ve scheduled a bunch of posts. I’ll try to come on a few times though, to check the comments & stuff. So comment, my adorable pommes de terre! 😉

Blue pancakes, homemade ice cream & more

Hello everybody! Here is the much-procrastinated summer bucket list update post!

#58. Make coca cola lip balm.

I saw this on YouTube back in February & decided to put it on my summer bucket list (I have no idea why). I made the container, & then attempted to make the lip balm cola flavoured. BIG FAIL.

The lip balm now smells like an artificially flavoured fruit salad. Oh well.

#60. Make a washer necklace.

This is the first item that I attempted this summer, & I think the necklace turned out pretty well. It’s one of my favourite colours too!

The front.

The back (it has my initials!)

#18. Make homemade ice-cream.

I made this with Pancake Monarch the other night.

The instructions said to add in vanilla essence, milk & sugar into a small ziploc bag & then put it into a larger ziploc bag that’s filled with ice & rock salt. I tried trusting my non-existent cooking senses (what was I even thinking?) & didn’t measure the vanilla essence, which resulted in a foul tasting vanilla “ice-cream”.

Ugh, I’m an idiot.

In the bag.

End product.

 

#15. Make purple pancakes.

As you can see, this isn’t even remotely purple.

I didn’t have any red food colouring, so I tried using “Orange Red”, & the batter turned a hideous greenish-purple. I added in lots of blue food colour to turn it back into blue.

The morning ended with attempting to make the pancakes look appetizing by adding on vanilla ice cream & chocolate syrup & Pancake Monarch saying, “What were you even trying to do?

I’ve done a few more things from the list apart from these. A post about those will be up soon! 🙂
