Glass jar/bottle diy’s

Hello! Today I want to show you all some mason jar/glass bottle diy’s. I love glass. It’s so pretty and I love being able to see what’s inside. I would have a house of glass if I could. So I love to use these in my room.

1. Money Jar

I keep my money in a larger glass jar. I like the look of it, and it gives me sort of an idea of how much money I have. I have a slit in the top of the jar so I can easily put cash in.

2. Coffee grounds

This one works just as well with full coffee beans. But the general idea is to put coffee in a jar, and smell it when you wake up. The smell is supposed to help you wake up easier. The lid on this one has the ring attatched.

3. Candy

If you have some candy lying around, mason jars are a great way to store it. It looks nice and keeps it sealed away from ants.

4. Pens

I’ve mentioned this one and the next one in a post before. Take a mason jar and only put a ring on it, not a lid, and fill it with multicolored pens. It’s functional and fashionable.

5. Flowers

For this one, faux flowers and glass go great together. I recommend filling the bottle with beads or something though, it’ll look better.

6. Seashells

This works with seashells, or pretty anything you want to display. For this one I used a more square-shaped jar and older lid.
You’re welcome to all of my glass lovers! Thanks for reading!

Some Simple Things to Make you Happier

Hello everyone! I’m back, for now. It’s been so long! I’m gonna have to give you guys some updates. 

Today I’m gonna talk about some simple ways to be a little happier. I’m a generally pretty happy person. Even when I am feeling sad, I can still laugh and smile through it. Here are a couple of things I do:

1. Acknowledge your reflection

If you look away from your reflection every time you walk past a mirror, you will begin to hate the way you look when you do look in the mirror. Looking at yourself in the mirror will make you more comfortable with how you look. And if you smile in the mirror too, every time you pass one even, you will end up smiling more often.

2. Treat yourself now and then

Get a bathbomb. Go get your nails done. Make a diy face mask. These small things are simple but so comforting.

3. Laugh more often

Even if the joke is stupid, laugh anyway. Then you are smiling, and laughing is good for you. One of my favorite quotes is “A day without laughter is a day wasted.”

4. Experiment with your look

This doesn’t have to be permanent. Wear a new color of lipstick or eyeliner. Wear your hair natural. Get the shoes you’ve been dying to get.

5. Pay attention to other people

Wallowing in self pity never gets you anywhere. And when you’re a happy person, your problems don’t seem quite as bad. You’ll stop focusing on your problems as much. And you’ll notice things about other people you didn’t notice before. People need people.
Go forth and be happy today!

Fall/Winter Fashion pts 2+3+4

Hi guys! I hope you all had a very Merry Christmas! Today I’m showing you how more winter outfits. A few weeks ago, Chiana showed you part one.
Today I’m showing you three outfits, because we wanted to do one per week but I missed two weeks. Onto the outfits!

My first outfit is a little more “fancy.” I’m wearing a jean jacket from Old Navy with a striped shirt from Gap, black ankle jeans from Forever21, and black ankle boots from Kohls. You can wear any type of jewelry with this outfit, which i love because it it versatile. You can also wear a different shirt, or color pants. There are many ways to switch up an outfit like this.

This second outfit is comfortable but also cute. It’s also a little more blingy. I’m wearing a red long-sleeved shirt, which can be from anywhere, a grey sweater from The Limited, dark skinny jeans from Gap, and a pair of loafers from Stuart Weitzman. The gold necklace matches the buckles on the shoes and the pants.

The third outfit is my favorite. I saw someone wearing a jean jacket with the sleeves cuffed over the jacket and I though it was super cute! So I tried it and loved it. I’ve been super into cuffing things lately, like plaid shirts with sweaters and stuff, and I think even printed leggings might look cool with cuffed pants. I don’t know, I’ll have to try. Anyway, the outfit. I’m wearing the same jean jacket as before and the same black ankle jeans as before. I’m wearing a green long sleeved shirt, which you can get anywhere, cuffed over the jean jacket, and a pair of suede boots from Old Navy.
That’s all I have for you guys today! Make sure to like and subscribe! Thanks for reading!

Loneliness – 5 Tips

sky-man-person-night-landscape

Hi everyone! I’m back for another thoughtful Thursday! I haven’t done one of these since July! And, before I move on, I want to let you know that I wrote a post yesterday updating y’all on what’s going on with the blog, but it’s saying that I wrote it two weeks ago. I don’t know what’s going on. Read it here.

 

Today I’m going to be talking about loneliness. I’ve been wanting to address it for a little while. It’s something I can relate to, and want to share.

 

A week or so ago, I was scrolling through Instagram, and I saw a picture saying, “feelings the signs experience most often.” Now, I don’t believe in astrology and horoscopes, but I do find them entertaining. So, I looked through the list to find my sign, Sagittarius. According to this person, the feeling that a Sagittarius experiences the most is isolation. I had never really thought about it before, but when I did, I agreed with it. I do feel loneliness. Especially this time of year when I am off of school a lot.

You see, I am extremely extroverted. I love being around people. It fuels me. People make me happy. So, when I am at home for two weeks and can’t see people in person, it makes me feel really lonely. Over thanksgiving break, my friends and I would Skype a lot, which helped, but it isn’t the same. Talking to people is amazing. But I need to be able to actually touch them.

So, the other night, I was laying in bed, and I felt really lonely. I missed people. Not just my friends, but everyone I see on a daily basis at school. I wanted to see them. But I couldn’t. It made me really anxious.

I’m not the only one who gets like this. I’m sure some of you guys do. I want to help both you and me.

There are lots of things you can do when you are feeling lonely. It all depends on who you are, because some things work for some people and not others, but here are some ideas.

 

  1. Take a walk

This is one of those ones that only works for some people. For me, it depends on the day. Sometimes, walks are amazing. The air, being able to think. But sometimes I wish I had someone with me so we could talk. Or at least a dog to walk so I wouldn’t be alone, which leads me to the next one.

2. Pets are great

Pets are great for cuddling, if that’s what you’re in the mood for, or playing, whatever suits you. If you have a pet, go pet your pet. If not, there is probably a service dog training program in your area that is open to volunteers.

3. Watch something funny/lighthearted

This one might be my favorite. Laughing and being fixed on what I’m watching gets my mind off of how I felt lonely. If you don’t know what to watch, the new season of Fuller House if really funny.

4. Get out

Just go somewhere. It doesn’t matter where. Go get coffee, swing on some swings. Surprise a friend and take them somewhere. Go see a movie. Just not a sad one.

5. Figure out why

Maybe you’re like me and just need to be around people. But try to figure out why you feel alone. If there’s someone you miss in particular, talk to them. And, you can always talk to me if you have no one else!

 

Thank you for reading! I hope you found some good tips here. And seriously, go watch the new season of Fuller House.

Fall/Winter Fashion Pt. 1

Hey guys! It’s Chiana and I wanted to share with y’all an outfit that I have been wearing a lot lately and have been loving! I wore this outfit for Thanksgiving and for a party I went to recently.

fullsizeoutput_3f

Jean Jacket: Kohl’s

Plain Black T-shirt: Kohl’s

Cranberry Jeggings: Kohl’s

Boots: Target

Necklace: Amazon (You can’t really see my necklace, but it’s a silver crescent moon that has dream written on it.)

For my hair, I braided my hair into two dutch braids while wet and let it dry overnight. With this outfit, I also wore black sandals since Florida isn’t cold around this time of year, but boots work too.

I hope you guys enjoyed this post and if you want to see more of me, then go check out Issue #30 of ACT Magazine where I talk about my favorite parts of the holiday season! 😀

Thanks for reading! Buh-Bye!

Playing Catch-up

Hey guys! Didn’t realize how long it’s been! I guess I got caught up in everything that’s been going on lately.

Thanksgiving was all right. Not terribly exciting. Then we entered that weird space in between fall and winter where it is still fall, but it feels like fall is over because thanksgiving is over. So I changed my blog to look wintery before it was officially winter because it was snowing…

The couple weeks of school in between thanksgiving and christmas break were pretty stressful. I had quite a few projects to complete, and I had to study for exams. We had some nice Christmas snacks as a class and watched a movie though, which helped.

Now I am on break again. It’s a nice break from school, and I am catching up on sleep, but I miss people. And I wish it was colder. 

Chiana and I are hoping to go ice skating this week. We will post about it if we do.

So, about the blog, I know I have a daily schedule, and I like it, but I can’t keep up with it. So, on the weeks when I have more time, I will post more than once a week, but on most weeks, I will post on Mondays. That will be my main posting day. I will be able to keep up with the schedule better and feel more satisfied with how often I post.

I’ve got a bunch of posts planned out for the next two weeks. I’m excited! Thanks for reading!
