Butterbeer, mug decoration & more

Okay, so I know that I’m quite  extremely late in updating about my Autumn Bucket List’14, but I’ll try & cover up everything in the following week, so……yeah. Let’s get on with this.

And a quick little announcement – If you read my previous posts related to my A.B.L.’14, you’ll probably remember that I said that camp got cancelled. Anyways, they cancelled the plan of cancelling the camp & I was able to go. Yay! It was amazing. And I’ll further talk about this later, in one of my next posts.

#2. Make some butterbeer.

I found a recipe for butterbeer on Pinterest, & I attempted to make it. To be honest, the end result was quite good, though I would like to try the actual butterbeer at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter someday.

This is the recipe I found on Pinterest.

And then I decided to add my initial with cinnamon powder.

As I mentioned above, it was good, but I really should have put in a little less sugar, because it was too sweet for my taste. And see the mug? *minion voice* Heeheeeheeeheeeheee. Banana!

#13. Decorate a ceramic mug for use during NaNo.

 I found a picture on Pinterest (the first pic) & I tried to recreate it. And sorry for the bad picture quality. I forgot to focus in & didn’t realize that XD

I tried to recreate this.

I added this detail after I saw a similar thing somewhere on the net. Cute, isn’t it? 😉

#14. Participate in NaNoWriMo.

I did participate & I did manage to win. My word-count goal was 20K words. And I finished NaNo in 29 days, because on the morning of 30th November I had to go to camp.

#36. Make a leaf crown.

I have ABSOLUTELY no idea why I put this on my list, but so it goes. I didn’t even wear it. Making it was kinda fun, but also a bit irritating, because the leaves JUST. WOULDN’T. STICK. Here’s some advice – don’t ever try to glue leaves together using a hot glue gun. And once again, an out of-focus-picture. You’re welcome.

Autumn! (ft. my Autumn Bucket List)

Buenos Dias people!

(What language was that anyways? Italian? Spanish? Latin? It just showed up on thesaurus.com so I used it)

Autumn is coming! Yay!

But it is SO STIFLING HOT here right now. Autumn, be here already.

It’s not like the leaves actually change colour here. They just turn yellow & fall off in the blink of an eye. They don’t turn red or orange or brown like in all those pictures I see everywhere. But it’s still called autumn.

September is definitely not autumn for me. October is. And honestly, I think October is the best month ever.

I’m busy the whole September. Like oh-god-please-September-end-already-you’re-choking-me-with-so-much-stuff-to-do busy. So, the time for doing the bucket list tasks is 30th September 2014 to 10th November 2014.
