Things I’m Leaving in 2017

As we celebrate a new year, we also like to look back on the one we had before. We reminiscence upon the good and the bad. Although, sometimes   I like to think it, we can’t just all magically drop our bad habits. However, you can always improve. These are the things I’m going to (try) to  leave in 2018. My list will be short and sweet but still, as you read these I hope you can add to your list of things you’d like to leave in 2018.

  1. Overthinking

I have done this enough times in my life to last me for many years to come. I do not need it in my 2018 self.

     2. Procrastination

This one will no doubt be hard for me. But Netflix, you can wait!

    3. Fearing change

Yes, I’m not denying that sometimes it is scary but I will try my best to embrace it.

    4. Making excuses

Get that workout in. Turn in that paper. Study for that test.

    5. Caring what others think

Don’t let other opinions control your choices.

All the Essentials to Have the BEST Holiday Sleepover

Hello everybody! Today, I’d thought it would be fun to write products and activities you can do to spunk up your holiday sleepover. So… invite you best friends over, light a fire (in your fireplace haha), and get these things to have the absolute best holiday sleepover.

I think face masks are always a fun activity. And it has it’s skincare perks too! You have so many options, you can do a full face mask or just an eye one. If you are really looking to have fun with it you can always do face masks with designs or fun colors. Certainly, don’t forget about the fun selfies you can all take once they’re on.

You can create a cute hot chocolate bar with different types of cocoa powder and toppings. If you wanna get really extravagant, you can get a mug with different initials on it for each of your friends!

MAKING GINGERBREAD HOUSES! If you are anything like me, you really don’t like eating them… I just think they don’t taste that good. With that said, I love making them! There is so much you can do with the design. No amazing christmas sleepover is complete without this activity.

To be honest, mine never turn out nearly this good… but it doesn’t stop me from channeling my inner-gingerbread-decorating-chef-master-artist and trying my best (even if it does end up falling mid-decorating).

When my friends and I have our holiday sleepover, we always wear holiday themed pajamas. It’s always a fun, easy things we like to put us in the spirit. You can all get the same pair, or switch it up and each get different ones. If you are going to lounge around in pajamas, might as well do it in something but comfy and spirited.

If you and your friends wanna get out of the house for a little then I recommend ice skating. Especially, if you live close to a city that offers ice skating downtown. Seeing the decorated holiday lights hung up in the city is always cool to see. Seeing them while ice skating with your best friends is even more fun!!

Thanks for reading! Until next time, Claire!!!!!

Becoming A Tourist in Your Own City

I know it was already a week ago but… I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving! With Thanksgiving already passed it seems like the year is blowing by. Winter/Holiday break is approaching FAST and before you know it your day will become a lot less busy. Of course, we love this time off but you may experience some boredom and start wishing that you were travelling this break. Luckily, you don’t have to travel to be a tourist. You can discover new things and visit new places in your own city. Here are some things that you can do to beat the “break boredom”.

Visit the welcome center

Nothing scream tourist like visiting your very own welcome. You may be surprised at what fun things you may find.

Visit museums

This one may be a little more obvious but I seriously recommend it. Chances are your city has many of them. So you don’t have to limit yourself to one, visit a few!

Take a tour

Really any tour will do, from a ghost tour to a historical tour learning more about your city helps you learn things you’ve never known before about the place you’re living in.

Go on Yelp.com

Yelp.com is the place for finding the best anything for the city you are in. Shops, bars, restaurants, you name it!

Get a hotel room

Sometimes a night out of your home is all you need.

Take a Walk Downtown

How many times have you just taken a walk Downtown and just enjoyed the scenery? And who knows, you may walk across something that interests you and just like that, your next tourist activity is a few steps ahead.
