Take Me Around The World!

Hey Guys! Welcome to my blog!

Every one has dreams. Some big, some small. Some are living their dream this very moment and some are just getting started. Me? I’m not living the dream just yet. Hopefully I will soon.

If you were to ask someone what their dream was, most of the time they would say:

“My dream is to travel the world!”

“My dream is to earn lots of money!”

“My dream is to meet the one!”

It’s not bad to have a common dream. I have a lot of dreams to be fair. Two of them I’ve already mentioned. But an important dream for me would be to travel the world, simply because I’ve spent most of my life in one place. I want to experience. I want to have memories I can look back on and say “I did that” instead of ” I wish I did that”.

I want to meet new people, I want to learn about cultures, I want to learn different languages. I want to do so much in so little time. So why not start now?

In August, I will be going to Brittany, France. And there, I will start my journey.  A while back I bought a map that you could scratch away the surface to reveal a colorful underside!

It’s a good way to keep up-to-date with all the places you have been to and plan to go!

The following countries I plan to visit first of all are:

  • Germany
  • Spain
  • Italy
  • Ireland
  • Poland
  • Norway
  • Denmark
  • Sweden
  • Switzerland

I plan to start with the countries closer to home and then over time, begin to spread out to other places XD

What about you? Do you have a dream?

I hope you guys enjoyed this post as much as I enjoyed writing it! I’ll be back to post again soon! In the mean time, if you enjoyed this post, give it a like and let me know in the comments below!

How to make a origami flower!

Hey guys! Welcome to my blog!

A little while ago, I posted a blog post on my art project, and for my project I made flowers! So in this post, I’m going to do a tutorial on ‘How to make an origami flower’!

Equipment:

  • PVA Glue/Glue stick
  • Acrylic paint
  • paper
  • ruler
  • pencil
  • paint brush
  • scissors

20170420_152610

Step 1

Using your ruler and pencil, measure out five squares that are 5cm by 5cm.

20170420_152832.jpg

Step 2

Then cut out your square’s using your scissors, and paint one side of each square then allow to dry for 10 minutes. Once dried, paint the other side of each square then allow to dry for a further 10 minutes.

Step 3

Once your square’s are dried, take one square and fold it diagonally.

Step 4

Then take the bottom right corner and fold up toward the top corner.

Then repeat with the left corner.

Step 5

Then take one flap and fold it on itself.

20170421_155620.jpg

Repeat with the other flap.

Step 6

Then take the tips of the flaps and fold them back.

Step 7

Using the PVA glue/glue stick, apply a thin layer of glue on the scribbled parts of the paper.

Step 8

Stick the two sides together and allow it to dry for 15-20 minutes. Repeat the entire process for the rest of the paper squares. If your having trouble keeping the sides together, use a peg to hold them so they can dry. They should look like mini petals like this:

Step 9

Once all the petals have dried, begin to glue them by their sides one by one.

Until you have a complete flower!!

(Bare in mind, there may be some dry glue. But not to worry! By using tweezers, you can detach it from your masterpiece! 🙂 )

My Love For Space

Hey guys and welcome back to my blog!

Do you ever just look up in the sky and wonder what’s really out there? Or admire the many shades of day and night? Or maybe you gaze in the depths of the night sky and find you are taken back by all the stars and the glorious moon that shines so beautifully in the dark, like a masterpiece in a studio of worlds wonders, that you feel at peace. Like nothing in the entire world is going to tear your mind away from the beauty you feel within yourself at that moment. 

During this moment, you forget about all of life’s problems and you connect with your inner self and find inner peace. Your worries cascading away….. You would look forever if you could.

I don’t think I’ve ever been able to describe that feeling before. It truly is an amazing experience and I always feel so at peace. Do you ever feel the same?

I always wonder what’s really out there. All the planets we have yet to find. All the possibilities and wonders of the universe we have yet to discover…. It’s all such a mystery… Who knows! Maybe there is life on Mars?

On a clear night sky, I take my telescope out into the garden where I can get the most perfect view of the moon and I can be out there for hours. Whether it be the moon or the star’s my telescope has never failed me! And luckily enough, I was able to photograph the moon through my telescope lens!

Guess who’s back!

Hey everyone and welcome back to my blog!

It’s been such a long time since I last posted… time sure does fly! I’ve just been so caught up with life that I never really had the time or correct frame of mind to update! It was either good old writers block or just not really having the time so I do apologize for leaving it so late!

It’s been almost 8 months since I was last active and can honestly say that the break did me a favor… So now I have returned with a fresh mind set and I’m ready to start posting again from here on!

I’m going to make this post rather short so again…sorry! But I guarantee you’ll here from me again very soon!

Love you lovelies! X

My Art Collection

Hey guys, welcome to my blog!

I’ve always been a lover for Art every since I was young, and I finally started my own collection!

Many artists such as Wassily Kandinsky, Paul Klee, Gerhard Richter and David Hockney add to my list of favorites. But I think my all time favorite is Wassily Kandinsky. Not only is his work mesmerizing, he was also my very first favorite artist!

A few of my favorite pieces of his include:

  • Composition 8
  • Yellow-Red-Blue
  • Composition VII
  • Autumn In Bavaria

Although I already have a few pieces in my small bedroom XD, I feel that I need to broaden my horizon a bit more and expand my knowledge to really thrive and develop my passion for Art. There is still so much I have yet to discover and it is something I look forward to doing.

My collection consists of canvas prints, paintings and pastel work.

What to do with the flu..

Hey guys! Welcome to my blog!

I’m afraid it’s coming up to cold season. The time for stuffy noses and chesty coughs that leave you feeling drained.. It can be a real pain when you catch something nasty that stops you from enjoying everyday things! Here are common symptoms:

Nasal Blockage

A stuffy nose is one of the worse feelings ever. It leaves you remembering all those times you took your clear breathing for granted XD To help me breathe better during day and night I would blow my nose, one nostril at a time so I didn’t strain my sinus. By blowing your nose, you clear your nose of the bacteria and viruses it carry’s. Therefore reducing the overload of mucus. I also used VapoRub and menthol tissues. The softness reduces the redness of the nose and the menthol clears the blocked passage.

Sore Throat

A sore throat is killer. Especially when you eat, drink and sleep. Strepsils are good for sore throats. They contain menthol and help soothe the throat while your immune system fights off the infection. Soothers are good too. Another way to soothe a sore throat is to take medications such as Nurofen: Cold and Flu. Nurofen works wonders during a flu. But be sure to read the instructions before use.

Another way would be to drink warm beverages such as herbal tea. I often drink green tea and other herbal.

Sore throat and nasal blockage is very common when it comes to the flu. So is a chesty cough, severe headache, body ache and fever.

Again, Nurofen: Cold and Flu is very effective as well as wrapping yourself up to keep warm, resting, eating regularly and keeping yourself hydrated with water. Another good remedy would be to mix honey, lemon juice and hot water. The honey acts as a menthol and is good for relieving congestion. Also garlic is good to eat with your food. But don’t eat it on it’s own as you can give yourself a stomach ache!

Last of all, visit your doctor and have them check you out. They can also prescribe medication for you and may even sign you off sick from work or school.

Anyway, I hope you guys enjoyed this post and I hope you guys stay healthy this Autumn. To lower your risk of catching a cold, be sure to wash your hands thoroughly, keep warm and have a good, nutritious diet!

See ya!

Try Everything

Remember when you said you would go to the gym, but always said you’d do it tomorrow? Or the time you said you would study but never did? How about the time you said you would visit a family member but would cancel?…All these things are said, but never done. For your benefit, try. Do those little things. Go for a run. Visit your family. Go out with your friends. Study. You don’t know you love it until you try it. You want to dance? Do it. You want to sing? Do it. It doesn’t always matter what people say. As long as your happy.

I want to start my YouTube channel, but I keep saying to myself  I’ll do it tomorrow or I’ll worry that my material isn’t going to be good enough. But then again, I don’t know until I try. And even if I fall, I’ll always be able to get back up and start again.:) Failing doesn’t mean your rubbish and need to give up. In fact, it’s the complete opposite. Failing means you made a mistake, but it’s not the end of the world. It’s the start of a new one. You have to get back up and climb that mountain until you reach the top…that’s when you can finally say you did it. Back in primary school days, I suffered a lot. I couldn’t bare the thought of going to school. But I pushed through.  And with the help and support from family and friends, I was able to push through and I can say now that I made it.

My weight has been an issue. But I know that I can change that and that it’s not too late.

Life. It’s not always fair. And you will fall down. But that’s just it! Your not the only one! You learn from your mistakes not give up on them. I won’t give up. I want to live my life the way I want to. And I will. I just have to work for it.

And as I do the things I want to do in life, so will you. Try everything. 🙂
