This is what I do with my life.

Today I went to a super amazing town near my house to get (a) fabric for my pillows (b) BRITISH CANDY OMGASDFGHJKL and (c) gluten free muffins – my mom’s doing.

I made some super cute pillows using some old pillows that we had on hand (shown in the picture) and a new pillow-form. I used the toaster fabric that I got a while ago and made shorts out of, and some stripy fabric, Paris fabric, and typewriter fabric. Yay!

Maltesers yay!!! (cuz you know… danisnotonfire said they were good so I had to get some… okay that’s an understatement. He didn’t talk about them… he poured a whole box of them all over himself in one of his videos)

Until next time, Em 🙂

P.S. ~ I totally forgot to post my weird dream this morning! I was going to lunch at my school and there was bubble tea (sometimes we have it, but it sounds more exciting than it actually is – it’s just really thick smoothie with tapioca bubbles – not the real thing), and this time they had jelly (yay! no more tapioca!) and I scooped a lot into my little cup and went over to get my smoothie put in, but my eyes wouldn’t open (it was actually really scary – it’s like when you’re super sleepy and your eyes legit can’t open) and so I kept moving the cup around and couldn’t get any of the smoothie. Then I walked down to the place where I eat lunch with my friends and THERE WAS A GREEN BABY RAM. Like, wtf?! And my friend petted it. And then I went to English class where I have a super scary teacher (who is actually really nice,  but she just has an angry tone of voice even when she’s happy) and I couldn’t keep my eyes open so she thought I was sleeping and I got in trouble. Yep.

P.P.S ~ Check out my youtube channel! Yay! http://www.youtube.com/channel/UC9OtEatbM7wnI2BxpcOZe8Q

Youtube… Wednesday?

I am seriously in love with this video. Go watch the one on public transport too.

(Sidenote, I’m now thinking in British after watching like, 10 of his videos. Yes, this is normal. It happens after charlieissocoollike videos too)

MONOCLE.

Until next time, Em 🙂

Sweater Diaries #6 and Christmas :)

Merry Christmas, everybody! And if you’re not celebrating Christmas… happy holidays!

Today was a very exciting day, not just because I got some British presents and tea, but also because I was introduced to an awesome charity.

Kiva is a charity that lets you give loans to people and groups trying to make home improvements, buy a new car, or start up a business, etc. I helped a woman in Jordan pay for home improvements, and a man in Mongolia pay for a new, eco-friendly car. The cool thing is that once the person pays back their loan, you can use your credit to help someone else! My brother and I both got $25 cards for Christmas, and we immediately hopped onto the computer to check out who we could help. I encourage you to check out the website, and maybe even give a $25 card to a family member of friend for their birthday.

Anyways, here are some pictures of some awesome presents I got.

I FEEL SO SPIFFY!!!

This feels like 8th grade all over again, when I was going to dress up as a British man (complete with a monocle) for Spirit Week at school (but then I switched schools the week before Spirit Week, so…)

I GOT A SUIT. Well, a suit top. Why is this so awesome, you ask? I have no idea. I just like wearing button-down shirts and suits (but mostly the button-down shirts. And I like looking at guys that wear button-down shirts. But you know… not that cute guy in band who wears one, or anything… hehehe (he forgot his music last week so now I have an excuse to talk to him – “hey did you lose your music”)

Spiffy

Casual

Which do you think is better? I’m kinda liking the “spiffy” outfit more, because the “casual” outfit reminds me of the male teachers at my school every time we have Open House…

And sorry for the terrible pictures, my brother apparently doesn’t know how to use an iPhone camera – my whole face was blocked by the light (the sun? I have no idea) because he doesn’t know how to focus on my face…

Until next time, Em 🙂
