November Favorites

Hello everyone! You voted "Lifestyle" so I am going to do my November favorites post. I haven't done one of these in the longest time. Hope you enjoy!

FOOD

Tea

Lately I have been obsessing over tea. About a week ago, I went to the store and got some Cinnamon Apple Spice Tea and it is amazing. It's caffeine free and great for fall.


Pumpkin Scones

Starbuck's pumpkin scones are life. They taste so delicious and have that pumpkin sugar taste to it.

BEAUTY

Willa Face Wash

My Willa face wash is amazing. It works very well and I get pimples often but ever since I have been using this product, my face feels like awesomeness. You can find the website here.


Baby Lips

A lot of girls in my grade have started to wear makeup but I didn't want to wear a lot. My mom got me a pack of Baby Lips and they are awesome. They keep you from having chapped lips and work as a tinted lip gloss.


APPS

Instagram

I love using Instagram to share pictures with my friends and classmates. It's a really fun app but you have to be safe and not give any really personal information.


Sims Freeplay

I've kind of been obsessed with this game. It is so fun and addictive, I can't stop re-designing my houses. It is free on the app store so be sure to check it out.


FASHION

Sweaters

I love my sweaters. They are so soft and comfy and I wear them all the time. Half of the things I bought on Black Friday were sweaters. Not kidding.

Fuzzy Socks

FUZZY SOCKS ARE AMAZING. I'm wearing them right now and they make my feet all warm and cozy and I just love them.


BOOKS

Mark of Athena

 I recently did a Heroes of Olympus book talk and this one was my favorite. It is full of action and adventure and Rick Riordan is amazing.

Mockingjay

I actually went to see Mockingjay but I never finished the book.....oooopppssss. So before the 2nd part came out (in a year, sadly) I decided to read the book. IT WAS AMAZING!! I'll be doing a book talk on it soon!!


SONGS

Jar of Hearts, Christina Perri
 
Lips Are Moving, Meghan Trainor
 
 
That's all for today folks! I hope you enjoyed and if you would like me to review any of the things above, pleaseeeee let me know!
 
Thanks for reading,

What To Do Over The Weekend

Hello everyone! I hope you had a fun Thanksgiving! Today is Friday and the weekend starts tomorrow! So, I am going to show you how to have a fabulous weekend!!!!! YAY

1) Watch a movie. There are a lot of interesting movies that have recently come out such as Mockingjay Part 1, Big Hero 6 and many more! You can bring a friend along and have lots of fun.

2) Read. Go to your bookshelf and pick out a random book. Sometimes when I get so bored I read the book to my stuffed animals. *runs from computer*

3) Organize your bedroom. This is a very fun activity for me! Many bloggers, youtubers, and Instagrammers have posted about this and you can get some good inspiration from Pinterest!

4) Write on your blog. Go read some blogs for inspiration and then write a good post! Check out my guest post on KBC for some tips!

5) Read some other blogs. My favorites: Snow Flake Sparkles BlogReflections of a Jolly GirlCurious Pieces,  Night Writer's Diary,  and What Lexie Loves

6) Explore Tumblr. If your parents allow you, make a Tumblr account and just browse! My favorite tag is Doctor Who....oops.

7) DIY something. Look around your house and find something bland. Then go ahead and decorate it! Be sure to ask your parents/guardian first so they don't get angry. I learned that the hard way.

8) Go crazy on Netflix. One of my fave things to do on the weekend is watch Netflix movies. If you need some advice on what to watch, check out my post that I posted recently!



9) Listen to music. Grab those earbuds/headphones and have a dance party! This helps you let loose and just let it all out!

10) Organize your desk. I just organized my desk and it felt really good. It is super fun and you might even find some stuff you didn't even know you had!


I hope you enjoyed! Have a great weekend everyone! Also, please vote for Sunday's post because I want to do a room décor post but I don't know if you would like to see that.

Top 5 Things To Watch On Netflix

Hello everyone! Yesterday I read an amazing post on Eve's blog about Eve's Top 10 Shows on Netflix and I was like, yes. So all credits to Eve and if you want to see the original post, click here.

 
 
 
1. Doctor Who
You guys probably saw this coming. But its amazing. Doctor Who is funny, suspenseful, and awesome. A dude in a time and space traveling box has companions and they go places in time and space. AWESOME. Plus, it's funny. I must warn you it is a bit scary so watch at your own risk. THE FEELS THO (BBC Masterpiece 1)
 
 
 
2. Merlin
My mom loves this show and got me into it. It's sort of a medieval times thing and it is funny and super cool. I love medieval stuff, I find it very interesting. Ever heard of King Arthur and Merlin? That's what this show is based on. (BBC Masterpiece 2)
 
 
 
 
3. Sherlock
Sherlock Holmes? Sherlock Holmes. Another amazing BBC masterpiece. This show is creepy and awesome at the same time. It's about well, Sherlock Holmes solving amazing and interesting crimes with his sidekick John...WATSON. If you like adventure and mystery then Sherlock is for you.
 
 
 
4. Torchwood
Torchwood is a spin-off show of Doctor Who (its actually an anagram of Doctor Who) A couple of episodes are slightly inappropriate but the rest are very funny. I wouldn't recommend it for young children, 9 and under, it is a bit scary. (BBC Masterpiece 4)
 
 


 
 


5. Once Upon A Time
This show is basically a remake of all your favorite fairy tales. From Snow White to Frozen, Once Upon A Time is a magical show full of twists and turns!
 
 
 
I hope you all enjoyed and this helps you! (Even though almost all of these are BBC shows)

Heroes of Olympus Series Book Talk

Hello everyone! Today I am going to do a book talk for the Heroes of Olympus series. I'll do a 3-5 sentence book talk on each book.  There are spoilers so beware...



The Lost Hero- Rick did a great job of starting the series with this book. Introducing the 3 new characters was awesome. I thought it was a great book except for the fact that Leo did everything while Jason and Piper stood around looking pretty.

The Son of Neptune- Yay Percy! I was so amazed and happy when Rick introduced the Romans and Camp Jupiter. Frank was totally awesome and can shape-shift. Hazel's story is super cool. The ending was a total cliffhanger.

The Mark of Athena- This book was amazing. Annabeth's quest to follow the Mark of Athena was amazing. I loved the ending where Annabeth outsmarted Arachne, that was pretty cool. Another scary cliffhanger where Annabeth and Percy plunge into Tartarus.

The House of Hades- I can't even imagine what Tartarus is like. That's scary. I didn't really pay attention to the other part of the plot except for Piper who was amazing. The ending was amazing once again (BOB NO) but still ended on a stupid cliffhanger. (I still can't believe Nico.)

The Blood of Olympus- DAT ENDING THO. Fabulous book, just wow. I was so happy when Nico and Reyna got a part, that was cool. The ending made me cry. They will never know if Leo was alive or not. *sobs* THERE WAS A DOCTOR WHO REFERENCE. just saying

The best part is, Rick tweeted that he might be coming out with another series. YAS

MY OPINION ON THE CHARACTERS

Jason- In the first book, Jason was pretty useless. But as time went on he became awesome. I was super annoyed by the fact that he has no sense of humor whatsoever but I got over that.

Piper- Piper. Is. Cool. She is super strong and has saved Jason so many times, he can't even repay her. She was awesome throughout the series and is so fabulous I just can't.

Leo- THE LADIES LUV LEO. He is soooo awesome and funny. He is one of my favorites and he can turn the most serious situation into a time where everyone died laughing. I WANT HIM TO BE MY BEST FRIEND.

Percy- We all know Percy has some mad fighting skills. Plus he makes the craziest jokes. I just felt he wasn't so loving towards Annabeth. He barely mentioned how much he loved her in any of his chapters.

Hazel- Hazel's power is so cool. She is so awesome and is totally independent. Plus, she has the wackiest story which is so cool.

Frank- Oh my gerd FRANK. He has the best power, which is turning into animals. That is so cool and he was totally underestimated. He was probably the most calm even though he's a son of Ares/Mars.

Annabeth- Annabeth in the Mark of Athena was amazing. She kicked butt throughout the series and never failed to live up to my expectations.


I hope you enjoyed this long post, I had a lot of fun writing it!

The Average Internet Obsessor

Hello everyone! A lot of people said they liked "The Average ____" series so I am gonna do one with Internet people, like me. Please do not take these seriously, I am not an expert and I do not mean to offend anyone!


We are always holding an electronic.
I always have my phone, computer, or iPad in my * ADJJHFDHJFD *jumps to phone and zones out for 1 hour* I have to hide my stuff while I'm doing homework so I don't get distracted.

We have some sort of social network.
Tumblr and Instagram are popular ones but seriously, how the heck are you an Internet addict without at least 2 social networks. If you're a fangirl, well that's a different story.

Most of our friends are either internet addicts too or are just very accepting of your obsessions.
My friends have learned to deal with my fangirl attacks and it happens on a daily basis, so they're pretty cool with it.

Free time= internet.
Truth. Most of my free time consists of *scroll, double tap, type, scroll.*.

Sorry for the short post, I have to make decorations for my friend's locker because its her b-day tomorrow! (Craft on Thursday!)

Thanks for reading,

Roomspirtion: My Room!

Hello everyone! Today I have a roomspiration post but I first wanna talk about something that I hate.

 I don't wanna be that kind of complainer person but my biggest pet peeve is when someone promotes their blog on someone else's, and then like asks to be tagged or something. Like, did you even read the post? Do you just wanna be promoted? Go do that somewhere else, not here. Sorry for the rant I just had to talk about that.

Okay now let's check out my newly decorated room for winter! Its not complete but its almost done!


 
 
Here's my door! I made a sign out of origami paper and ribbon. Here are the simple steps:
 
1) Get a bunch of pieces of paper, two for each letter of your name.
2) Make a heart or different shape out of (enter number of letters in name/word here) pieces of paper.
3) Glue that shape onto another piece of paper and when you've done that with all of your shapes, write out the word, string onto ribbon and voila!
 
 
 
 
This one is probs my favorite! Just make a calendar, on your wall. It's pretty self-explanatory. It's really cute and in December, you only have to make one new number! If you wanted to do reminders or something you could sticky note the reminders on the day.
 
 
 
My desk is really messy but I sorta organized it to my liking. I liked how my lotions were all organized and I found this super uber cute tray so I put my nail-polishes in it.
 
 
 
Sorta blurry pic but whatever. I have some cute had sanitizers which I collect! My favorite things are the tea lights and the little Aries picture that my aunt gave me.
 
 
 
 
The coolest thing about my bed is that it has a bookshelf built in! I bought some fake flowers and put them down there. I also have my books organized by series.
 
 
 
I made this by hole punching the middle of some snowflake doilies and stringing them onto a piece of ribbon!
 
 
 
I also taped some snow flakes to my ceilings!
 
 
I hope you all enjoyed today's post and tell me your fave thing about your room down below!
 
Thanks for reading,
Noor

People Think I'm Cool (What?)

Hello everyone! I'm sooo sorry, I totally lost track of time and am posting this at the last minute. I've been a really bad post planner lately and have not been thinking about what to post. I do have an interview coming up so be sure to look for that.

I just wanted to ramble today about the fact that people think my blog is interesting and funny. I have nothing against it, I just think it's awesome! I've sort of (for like 5 minutes) thought about why this might be the case.

THEORY ONE- I am weird.

I guess you guys like awkwardness and weirdness because it seems to be working. I guess I just be my natural awkward self and boom, instant views. Trust me, this does not work in real life. (I wish it did, I would be like the most popular person in my school.)

 
 
THEORY TWO- My life seems "interesting".
 
Okay so this is super weird but 15 of you awesome people voted "lifestyle" as their favorite posts. Like really? You are interested in my life. Here is my schedule:
 
Wake up, eat, school, come home, internet, internet/fangirl, read, eat, internet, read, sleep, repeat.
 
It can't get any more boring than that. Basically I'm not there or I'm reading, fangirling, or on some electronic still fangirling.
 
 
 
THEORY THREE- I'm awesome.
 
I know it sounds self centered but in middle school I learned, you have to be confident about yourself. Just believe that you are truly awesome and you will do better.
 
Maybe that's why you guys like me, because I'm confident and I make good posts or something.
 
But my ultimate secret (true), theory is that I am really a witch from Harry Potter who gives all my readers love potions so they fall in love with my blog. MUAHHHAAHAHAHAHA
 
 
But seriously, why do you guys like my blog? Tell me in the comments I would really appreciate it.
 
 
Thanks for reading,
Noor

Wednesday

Popularity

Hello everyone! Today I'm going to talk about popularity levels in middle school.  I'm hoping to do a Let's Talk About It on Friday and a review on Sunday, so I demand you to look forward to that! Let's just get going, shall we?


I decided to divide it up into groups to show you easier.

The Girl Populars
All the girls want to be them. They get asked out every week, always have a boyfriend, and have everyone at their side. These people are full of drama and most of them are drama queens. I'm partially here and partially in middle girls.

The Boy Populars
These boys get asked out and most girls have crushes on them. They usually go out with popular girls but some nice ones go out with middle girls or even unpopulars. In my school, these boys usually play soccer or football.

The Middle Girls
Me and my friends are at this level. We get asked out occasionally. We don't get drama and are usually in our own little space. I honestly think this is the best place to be in middle school.

The Middle Boys
The middle boys don't really have classification, they're just your average boys. They're pretty nice. 

The Unpopulars
The only difference between the unpopulars and the middle people is that no one knows who they are. Example: "Hey, do you know that girl Yolander in science?" "Who the heck is Yolander?" "Oops, I forgot she's an unpopular." (Please don't take offense if your name is Yolander, it is a pretty name)

Weirdos
These people are just plain weird. I don't know what's going on in their brains but it is crazy. But you know, we're all weirdos inside :).


I hope you enjoyed today's post. Be sure to tell me in the comments which person you are and if you wanted to add something or someone! :)

Noor

November Goals

Hello everyone! Today I am doing the monthly "Goals" post with all new goals! First, let's go over the October Goals. 

Make Mathalon. AWWW Yea did that! I'm having so much with it too! 

Don't mess up BBK. I think I didn't do this! :) 

Practice my instruments more. Kinda, I practice 10-15 minutes of each almost every day. I am also trying out for something called BCMEA so I have to practice more. 

Gain more followers on blog and Instagram! I gained 6 followers for my blog in October and I have 106 followers on my personal Instagram and 65 followers on my fandom Instagram. (Lots of 6's :O) 

Read 10 books. Yeah! I finished a whole series and some other books. I'm trying out the Heroes of Olympus series right now. (Second book) 


NOVEMBER GOALS 

PERSONAL GOALS

Keep getting good grades. I've been getting pretty good grades lately and I want to keep that up. I have a big math test coming up on Friday, oh nein! 

Score a goal in a soccer game. Its a big deal when you score a goal in a game. Like a big deal. You're a star for the rest of the season. I really want to score a goal in an upcoming game! Fingers crossed!

Make a new friend. I like making friends and its always great to make a new one. 

Do well in Mathalon. Did I mention that Mathalon is really hard? I want to try my best and I am! I hope we win our competition. 

Stay happy. We were told that a lot of kids start getting depressed in 6th grade which is sad and I don't want to be over obsessive over my looks or social life. 

BLOGGING/WRITING GOALS

Post more interesting things. I've noticed some of my posts are boring, I want to change that and make my posts more exciting!

Write a story. Trying to keep a story going is one of my weaknesses. I always give up on a story. I've already started a story and I want to keep it going. 

Earn more followers on my fandom IG account. I have a special IG account for the fandom side of me and I'm trying to promote it. My goal is 100! 

Make better edits.  I make a bunch of edits and collages but a lot of them are bad. My mom said she'd get me Photoshop for my birthday! I'm so exciting. Right now I have to work with PicMonkey and editing apps.

I hope you enjoyed today's post and be sure to tell me your goals and the link to your goals post! 

Thanks for reading,

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!: Special Halloween Post

Hey everyone! Its Halloween and I've just ended the night! I'm gonna share with you all the highlights and stuff but unfortunately, I forgot to take pictures... I will try to share a pic of the costume on my About Me page.

MY COSTUME
This Halloween, I was the 11th Doctor from Doctor Who! I loved my costume it was super awesome with the sonic and everything!!

I had an olive colored trench coat, white shirt, black tights, black skirt, fez, and bowtie.

FRIEND'S COSTUME
My friend Carlin had a party and it was super fun!!!

They had a lot of cool decorations like spider webs, fake bloody fingers, etc.

My friend's costumes were: Emma G-Monster, Hannah G-Panda, Carlin-Pink Lady from Grease, Mia-Baseball player, Meghan- Robin Hood, Katelyn-Softball player, Anna-Pirate, and Alexia-Marty the business man.

We played several games like, pop the balloon with your knees, try to get as much sweets as you can in your mouth, wrap someone in toilet paper.

For food we had: pasta, cookies, gummy worms, chips and salsa, Oreos, and Cheetos.

TRICK OR TREATING

I got a lot of candy, my bag was so heavy when we were done. My favorite one was the small pack of Kit-Kat minis!

One house was totally decorated and they had super cute emoticon pumpkins.

My friend Molly was dressed as a creepy clown and Hannah got soooo scared when Molly started following her and didn't know who she was.

DECOR

Our pumpkin looked like one of those "knocked out teeth" pumpkins. It was my first time carving by myself and it was super fun!

We hung up some fairy lights that were orange, black, and purple.

We also had these pumpkin, mummy, and skeleton figures that lit up so we put those out.

BEST PART

The best part was probably when we went trick-or-treating. We all laugh and sang along the way and had a great time with each other. We even went nearby my old house and said hello!

I hope you enjoyed and sorry for the lack of pictures, I totally forgot! See you on Sunday!
