May 2015

I tried this once in June of last year and I failed miserably so now I’m going to try again. You should do it too. Put a link to yours in the comments below and I’ll be sure to check it out.



 May Photo Challenge Day 1: Things beginning with  “J”

May 1, 2015

Here it goes, day one of the challenge. Last year I tried, and failed, so this year I am trying yet again.

May Photo Challenge 001

May Photo Challenge 009

This is my filled Deathly Hallows journal that I wrote about a while ago.

May Photo Challenge 003

J is also for Joshua Tree National Park. Lauren and I visited there over spring break and I got this cool water bottle.

Stick around for tomorrow, and if you want to join the challenge leave a link to your blog in the comments below and I’ll be sure to check them out!

For the full challenge check out the Photo Challenges Page (you’re already here so you don’t have to click).


May Photo Challenge Day 2: Snack

May 2, 2015

I don’t really eat snacks so I decided to show you my lunch instead (sorry).

Being the healthy (in reality I’m not that healthy) I had this cool salad my dad made last night with sugar snap peas and snap pea shoots and it was really good.

May Photo Challenge 011

And this is the progression of an experiment I wanted to try. It’s a pizza wrap! and it turned out really well too.

In case you didn’t know, I’m lactose intolerant so this is lactose free cheese, which is a really bad excuse for cheese and I don’t eat meat by choice, so whenever I make myself something it doesn’t contain meat. But if someone makes me something that has meat in it, I will eat it, because I think it’s kind of rude not to. Especially when you’re at someone’s house and they’re making a meal for everyone and they make stuff for you too. They didn’t have to do that, so the least you can do is eat it.

Sorry, that’s a rant I have to give all my friends who are like “but you ate meat at my house”.

So that’s today’s photo challenge, and I’ll see you guys tomorrow!


May Photo Challenge Day 3: Collections

May 3, 2015

I have so many collections of just random things, so I’ve chosen some of the nicer ones.

So I have a collection of dolls, I have both porcelain dolls (which my grandmother gave me) and international dolls.

The four porcelain dolls on the left are the Beth, Mary, Amy and Jo from little women and the one on the right is from when I was a party girl in the Nutcracker.

The international dolls are from China and India.

May Photo Challenge 005

This is my collection of dried flowers and photos of old friends and relatives. If you look you can see two sneaky Laurens.

May Photo Challenge 006

This is only part of my library, which is a collection of books. See, relevant. It also contains the complete collections of Harry Potter, Nancy Drew, Trixie Belden, Little House on the Prairie, Anne of Green Gables, Lord of the Rings, Gemma Doyle, The Phoenix Trilogy, and so many more. Seriously, I think I have a problem.

May Photo Challenge 007

This is part of my extensive nail polish collection, which was featured in a few blog posts a long while ago. Its grown since then…oops.

May Photo Challenge 008


Thanks for sticking around. There will be a new post tomorrow! Join in the challenge and put the link below. I’ll check them out. Also I have a YouTube channel that you should check out. I post there every (almost) Monday.


May Photo Challenge Day 4: Us

May 4, 2015

I didn’t really know what to do for this one, so I just took a bunch of pictures of me and my friends. Most of them didn’t know I was taking pictures, but I still think they look nice.

Like I’ve said before. Unaware of being photographed, but it adds naturalness (and Christina is such a sweet person). They do know that they are here though, so don’t worry about that.

May Photo Challenge 001

Lauren and I. I think you’re getting used to seeing Lauren everywhere. Oops.

May Photo Challenge 002

The one with the afro is Marcus, the one on her back is Paige, and the one crouching is Joey. Paige and Marcus are in my dance class and Joey just eats lunch with us.

May Photo Challenge 003

As you can see, Paige and Marcus are a lot taller than I am, but that isn’t hard to do as I am 5’2”.

May Photo Challenge 004


I hope you enjoyed today’s challenge and meeting some of my friends. Stick around to see more pictures of me not knowing what I’m doing. I’m posting a regular blog as well as a photo challenge on Friday. And go check out my YouTube channel for extra May Day adventures!

Thanks for reading.


May Photo Challenge Day 5: 4:00 pm

May 5, 2015

Today, it was take pictures at 16:00.


So, at that time I went for a walk and this is what I saw. Because it’s almost Summer, at 4:00 it is still quite light outside, and I think some of the lighting in these are just gorgeous.

We start our journey with a very photogenic basketball hoop. I don’t know why, just accept it.

May Photo Challenge 006

I’ve always found manzanita enchanting, and I love taking pictures of it.

May Photo Challenge 009May Photo Challenge 036May Photo Challenge 023

In my front garden, we used to have a fountain, but it sort of fell over and we just never fixed it because now the fawns can drink out of it as well as the does and bucks (I’m talking about deer here).

May Photo Challenge 011

Surprisingly, with the lack of rainfall, this spring was/is extremely green, and it makes me happy.

May Photo Challenge 025May Photo Challenge 026

And like I’ve said before, I have a thing about invading a plant’s personal space. Invading all the space! But I did get some cool shots that way.

May Photo Challenge 015May Photo Challenge 016May Photo Challenge 017May Photo Challenge 019

And I just thought this one would be cool to draw, because of all the patterns and shades.

May Photo Challenge 037

Thank you so much for reading and putting up with me. If you want to join the challenge, post your link in the comments and I’ll be sure to go and look at all of them.

Check out my YouTube channel for my latest videos, and I will see you guys tomorrow! Stay cool.


May Photo Challenge Day 6: From Down Low

May 6, 2015

This one was a little strange and challenging, because I didn’t have much time outside to take pictures.

The first few were kind of hesitant, mainly because I really don’t know what I’m doing. For example, this is a ceiling…no other words are necessary.

May Photo Challenge 002

Here is your daily dose of Lauren. She was just getting ready for teaching today. We both have dances this set of dances and she was practicing what to show to her people.

May Photo Challenge 001May Photo Challenge 003

By this time I was really running out of ideas, so I just grabbed this Coke out of the fridge, drank it (I also wanted Coke) and decided, hey lets take a picture!

May Photo Challenge 004


Thanks for reading, stick around for tomorrow’s challenge. I will see you guys later!
