New Year's resolutions

1. Drink more water
This one is a number one because I seriously struggle with this. I hardly ever drink as much water as I should.

2. More art!!!
I did a lot of drawing in 2017, and it was awesome to look back and see some improvement. I really want to keep up with drawing and maybe branch out a bit in writing. (I currently suck at writing soo..)

3. Practice dance more
I noticed in a recent recording of me dancing I look really awkward and stiff.  I want to practice becoming more flowy in movement and more flexible.

4. Clean out my phone
Do I really need THAT many pictures of my cat?? I tend to take a lot of photos and it is wreaking havoc on my phone's storage. (getting the "storage almost full" pop-up is becoming a daily thing.)

5. Continuing my bullet journal
aka writing in it more than once every 2-3 months.

6. Be more open to change
I hate change, but its something that's going to happen whether I want it to or not, so I might as well accept it. Change can be good.

So, this is my goals for 2018. I tried to keep them pretty realistic?? If I remember I will try to do a post at the end of the year to see if I accomplished some of my goals.
What are some of your New Year's resolutions??

2017 Christmas haul

Hello!! I hope everyone had a great Christmas!! (if you celebrate it) I love reading different blogger's Christmas haul posts, and wanted to make one of my own. :)

I've been waiting all year to use this gif, not gonna lie. XD

*DISCLAIMER: I am not in any way trying to brag*
(Side note: my apologies for the iPod photos and crappy blanket background,
I wanted to get the photos taken quickly so I could make this
post before next year)

First up, my Mom and Dad gave me this really cool LA Colors nail art set!! It came with all the stuff in the picture plus.....

4 different colors of nail polish and glitter, plus a bottle of clear nail polish. :3 I have already used some of the gold glitter on my nails, and it works awesome, although my cat isn't a fan of the nail dryer. (he is scared of it)

My best friend gave me the red lion from Voltron for Christmas!!
If you are reading this Ally, thank you so much!!

He looks so cooooll I love his little magma laser. :3

I got a box (tin?) of Prismacolor pencils!! I was trying them out earlier, and they are so amazing!! I looovvvee them.


My Mom and Dad also gave me two packs of multicolored film for my Polaroid!!! I already put the rainbow pack of film in my camera, so I don't have any pictures of it, but the blue photo above is from that pack.

My sister gave me these two colors of nail polish!! The first one is mint, and the other is purple with galaxy glitter. (If you haven't noticed I like painting my nails lol.)

Next is this super cute Wonder Woman funko pop!! I was wanting a funko pop for Christmas, and she is waaay cuter than I imagined. :D (the little details on her shield though)

I also got a new sketchbook, along with a pencil sharper and blending pencils. (below) 

(I already managed to misplace one of the blending pencils *facepalm*)
(Also it totally didn't take me like 3 days to figure out how to empty the
pencil sharpener, no, definitely not)

And last, but certainly not least, my new converse!!

I hope you all enjoyed reading this post!!
What did you get for Christmas??
Leave a comment below or a link to your haul
post if you made one!!

Also more Christmas gifs I couldn't go without using, sorry.

2017 Christmas Wishlist

Hello all, it is almost Christmas!! I am super excited for Christmas; my family always has a Christmas Eve party which is always fun, and I am officially on Christmas break! I decided to do a little wishlist post for Christmas. I love all the different Christmas posts people have been posting. :3

Black Converse

My main thing on my wishlist, the beauty that is converse. 0.0 I've never owned a pair of converse before, and I looooveee them. (they are just so pretty)

Wonder Woman funko pop

 Look how cute this funko pop is!!
(btw if you haven't seen Wonder Woman it's really good I totally recommend it)

Prismacolor pencils
Most of my drawings are colored with a mixture of sharpies and random off-brand colored pencils, and I've heard Prismacolor pencils are nice. ^-^

Sims 4 cats & dogs expansion pack

My friend got this expansion when it first came out and it is awesome.

cat socks
I have an obsession with cute socks tbh.

I collect different pins/buttons and I have a denim bag I keep them all on.
Because, well, chocolate.

I hope you enjoyed reading this post!!!
Have a great evening. 🖤

Christmas decorations

How was your day?? Mine was pretty good, after school I worked on a project for my church's Christmas play, finished up my parents Christmas gift, redecorated my tree because a dork (aka my cat) decided to knock it over, and had a Christmas play practice. (hardly anyone showed up)
Anyways, I took pictures of my Christmas decorations in my room.

 I lowkey have an obsession with gel clings and decorate this window year round.
(peep Fernando, my pink cactus)

 I don't know, it just looked cool.

It's kinda hard to see in the previous few photos, but I found this cool purple gem geode thing while on a trip with my family, and its pretty cool.

I like to decorate my dresser with tiny stockings, although it makes it hard because they get caught in the drawers when I open them, but oh well. (beauty is pain)

And my pink tree!! I have a really tiny one atop my desk as well with multicolored bulbs, but my desk is currently a mess, oops??

I hope you enjoyed reading, have an awesome day!! <3
