My Monday Rant: Christmas and getting organized for the New Year.

Hello Lovelies!
I hope you all had a very Merry Christmas and are ready for a Happy New Year!
I know I had a absolute fabulous time with my family and I was so excited to receive and gift all of  the presents. I made a lot of things by hand this year but they were treasured by each person I'd like to think. I received a few long awaited gifts this year such as: 
The Lord of the Ring Trilogy and The Hobbit Books (they are all hobbit size which makes them even better), 
Season 1 of game of Thrones, 
The Elder Wand, 
Slytherin Socks, 
and lastly Batman Footie pajamas.

I'd like to think this was a very successful, very nerdy Christmas for myself. :)

What were some of your favorite presents this year?

Also I'm all organized for the New Year. I've made myself a custom planner for my school stuff, nutrition and workouts, my blog, budget, and cosplays for the year. I'm still working on a few design things but I was thinking of posting it for anyone who would find it helpful. Tell me below if that would help any of you.

Well that's it for today!
Thanks for stopping by!

Monday Rant: The Hobbit, Sailor Moon, RWBY

Hello my lovelies!

So if you checked out my previous post you would know that I went to see the Hobbit this weekend and I would just like to say that it was AMAZING!! 8D
I laughed, I cried, and I have now realized that I can have a full on LOTR marathon now! Gotta go pick up all the Hobbits now!

Another thing that I just recently saw over the weekend was the new Sailor Moon Crystal ( I just got Crunchy Roll so I now had a chance to catch up) and gosh have the feels hit me hard. If you are also watching you know my pain. BUTTTT I'm so excited to continue watching and I'm also reading the manga, I definitely recommend it if you haven't yet read it. 

And the last thing I saw was RWBY, I actually started it today and still have mixed feelings about it. Now the story line I love, the animation and 5-10 minute episodes is what gets me. My attention was brought to this show by my best friends Cosplay line up for A-Kon (which you can see here, also check out the rest of her Instagram, she's an amazing cosplayer) So far I have finished the first season and am moving on to the next one later today.

Are y'all watching anything good? Did you go see the Hobbit? Tell me below!

That's all for today!
Thanks for stopping by!

My Monday Rant: Weekly faves, The Hobbit, and School!

Hello Lovelies!

(So today's posting is a bit everywhere and I apologize about that but it happens.)

Weekly Favorites:

1. Dark lipsticks
I am loving dark Lipsticks right now anything ox blood colored or really deep and warm are my colors right now. Like today for example I'm wearing Sangria by Milani. 

2. Baby Soft Yarn
I have been going through this stuff like crazy for Christmas presents this year! Nothing says Merry Christmas like a soft warm crocheted blanket. :)

3. Christmas Lights
Now seriously, I have to be extremely careful when I'm driving at night now dues to all the crazy Christmas lights. I get distracted way to easily with all the "Oooohhhhhh, pretty...."

4. Andy Mineo
I usually don't listen to rap because I can't stand it but I have been listening to Andy Mineo all month so far. Check him out, he is an amazing with his Christian rap.

5. My bed
Dear lord do I need to catch up on my sleep. I've been traveling everywhere and doing a million things at once so when I actually get to the point of sleep it's my favorite time of the day.

Next, Ok so big big news! I have been so extremely excited about the new Hobbit coming out and so anxious to see it and I just found out that I am gong with a group of friends to go see it in IMAX at a theater in Shreveport! 
(More to come next Monday)

Welcome to December! Christmas Tag!

Hello Lovelies and welcome December!!!
Even though I have been sick for most of November I refuse to let this get in my way of December! It's one of my favorite times of the year. I am literately a complete little kid when it comes to the preparation for Christmas and the New Year! My favorite part though would probably be all the Christmas sweets \(^.^)/

Tell me below what your favorite part about Christmas is!

Also if you want to follow me along this Christmas I will be doing a Photo a day challenge on my Instagram to show you guys little holiday facts about me and all the crazy stuff that goes on! (We have so many birthdays in December so expect lots of party photos!)

So here it is! My Christmas Tag! I found this from Morgan on her blog The Enthusiast which you can check out her answers by clicking here. I was not tagged in this I just stumbled across it on her page.

1. What is your favorite Christmas film?
 My absolute most favorite Christmas film would have to be The Nightmare Before Christmas which you would have seen if you follow my Instagram tag I mentioned above cause it's on day 2!

2. Have you ever had a White Christmas?
I don't believe I remember ever having a white Christmas, since I do live in Texas we have somewhat of bi polar weather and it can never decide whether to remain hot or cold xp

3. Where do you usually spend your holidays?
I spend every holiday with my family! I don't think I could ever stand being away from the crazy bunch on a holiday :)

4. What is your favorite Christmas Song?

7. What holiday traditions are you looking forward to most this year?
Putting up the tree with my sisters is probably the best part for me :) 

8. Is your Christmas tree real of fake?
Fake I don't think I could deal with a real one haha

9. What is your all time favorite holiday food/treat? 
Since we usually have a lot of family over we basically make another Thanksgiving meal with all the turkey and ham and it's sooooooooooooo good haha!

10. Be honest do you like giving gifts or receiving them?
I love seeing people receive my gifts. Mostly because my gifts are hand made or I put a lot of thought into them. It's a wonderful feeling to see how happy they are when they open it.

11. What is the best Christmas gift you ever received? 
The best gift I ever got was a pair of Owl footie pajamas that my mom got me two years ago. Each one of my sisters got a pair too with their favorite animal and now we all wear them together Christmas eve and day!

12. What would be your dream place to visit during the holidays?
I would love love love love love to go to Ireland for Christmas!!!! 

13. Are you a pro-present wrapper, or do you fail miserably? 
I'm amazing when it comes to the first few presents then I get really lazy and throw everything in bags haha xp

14. Most memorable holiday moment?
I don't have a particular moment I do however always remember lounging around watching all the classic Christmas movies with the family.

15. What made you realize the truth about Santa?
No clue actually, but my younger sister did ask me the dreaded "Is Santa real?" question the other night. Let's just say I ran away before giving an answer....

16. Do you make New Years resolutions? Do you stick to them?
Well last year I said I was gonna get active and go to the gym. I started about last month haha

17. What makes the Holidays special to you?
I believe family and friendship is what makes my holiday so special. If I didn't have all of them around I'd probably be quite a Scrooge on Christmas. 

And that's it!
