Heya everybody! Today we’re making……brownies! (Err, the title of this post gave it away though, didn’t it? :/ )

  • ½ cup milk
  • A dash of baking powder

My Resolutions for 2015

The title is pretty self-explanatory, I think. These are my resolutions for 2015, along with a tiny explanation of each.

#1. Blog more.

Hmm…you know. I would just like to blog a bit more & about stuff other than my bucket list adventures (Huh?Adventures?Seriously?) & the collages that I keep making.

#2. Get a Wreck This Journal (& complete it).

I keep seeing Wreck This Journals popping up everywhere (errr…Pinterest & Polyvore, actually) & I think they’re pretty rad. I really want to try it out, so that sums up the reason for making this kinda-weird resolution.

#3. Become organized.

My folders, my desk, my wardrobe, my notebooks, everything- literally everything – always looks like a storm has just passed through it. And it has started to bug me, so getting organized sounds like the best solution right now.

#4. Get awesome grades.

Self-explanatory. Who doesn’t want great grades?

#5. Make an effort to talk to new people.

Because in 2014, I realized that not everyone around is as bad as I make them out to be.

I might post an update in (around) June or July of how I’m doing with these resolutions.

See ya guys in 2015! HAPPY NEW YEAR!




How are you doing with coming up with resolutions?

(Almost) All About 2014

2014 was a weird year for me, in both a good way & a bad way. And I don’t know whether you can tell or not, but I just learned that I suck at writing end-of-the-year posts (as this is my first one ever ha XD).

  • The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (Andrewww *swoon*)

  • Bucket Lists

Getting excited for the new year ahead,


Question – Have you made any new years’ resolutions yet?

Merry Christmas! + Collage

Merry Christmas, everyone! 😀

I was going to have a few Christmas-related posts on my blog, but, as you’ve probably noticed, I’m already lagging behind (Autumn posts in December, anyone? XD). So I didn’t post anything related to Christmas.

At all.

And Christmas is today.

Oh well.

The reason for my lagging blog-giness (uhhh, I hope you understand what I mean to say) is that I’ve been sick on & off for the past 2 weeks (yeah, in the season of being jolly. Not that I really celebrate Christmas, but yeah.)

I have planned a few end of the year posts for this blog, so just pray that I’m able to publish them before 31st December 2014’s midnight ha XD

Oh, & another thing- I have a Winter Bucket List ‘14-’15. Yeah, I know, this bucket list obsession is quite severe. Hee. Anyways, you can go & check it out here.

And here’s a Christmas themed collage 🙂



All images are from Pinterest, but I do take credit for compiling this collage! 🙂
