My Birthday Gifts

Hi everyone! A few weeks ago was my birthday, so today I'm going to show you all what I received! This is in no way meant to brag, just a friendly show and tell if you will. ;)
And to all the people in Paris and around the world- stay safe and be strong. <3

My amazing friends gave me The Amazing Book is Not on Fire by Dan and Phil!! I was so not expecting it and it was so nice of them.

Next I received this magazine/book that I was eyeing at Michael's a while back. It's so lovely, with gorgeous photos and poems and inspirational stories...quite like this blog.


I also got SprinkleofGlitter's book, Life with a Sprinkle of Glitter.

It is filled with tons of advice and crafts and other lovely things!

This was the book I was wanting the most- Color Me Creative by Kristina Webb! I've been more into drawing lately and Kristina is such a big inspiration, so I was so excited for her book to come out. In it she tells her life story and then there are 50 creative art challenges for you to complete. I'm loving it so far!

You can also download an app, scan certain pages, and more fun extras come up! That just adds to the awesomeness.

For some reason I forgot to take a photo of this, but it is the TodHunter Moon book two, SandRider! I'm really excited to read it.
(Yes I got a lot of books, don't judge haha)

I got an Amazon gift card, so I spent it on some nice new colored pencils. They're amazing!

And finally, I got a new laptop!! My old one was already used by my dad and I'm surprised it even lasted 1 1/2 years with me. But, it has basically just turned dead, so I really wanted a new one. And my new one is what I'm typing on right now!

And of course this is my background...;)

So that is what I received for my birthday!
What have you gotten for your birthday or what is on your wishlist?

Until next time!

October Recap & November Bucket List

Hi everyone! It's already November (how?!), so I'm here with an October recap! I've also decided to put in my November bucket list, so maybe I'll actually do it this month. 

Reading- I received "The Amazing Book Is Not on Fire" by Dan Howell and Phil Lester for my birthday, so I've been reading that. It's been great so far!

Watching- Season 5 of Once Upon a Time and season 9 of Doctor Who! Both have been amazing so far.

Buying- Some winter essentials, including the cutest coat ever and the comfiest pajama pants in existence! I also found some awesome gold shoes on sale for only $5 at Charlotte Russe! Definitely one of my favorite pairs that I own.

Listening- I've been listening a lot to Gabrielle Aplin's new album, Light Up the Dark! It's beyond amazing.

Loving- The fall colors, photography, candy, and friends. 

For Halloween I was Emma Swan as the Dark One (from Once Upon a Time). I think it turned out pretty well!

This was my dagger. I bought the actual dagger part from a Halloween store, but I colored the main part with a silver sharpie and decorated with a think black one. I wore a black dress I found in my grandma's attic with a long cloak, with my hair in Emma's braided bun. I tried spraying my hair white, but it didn't show up in my light blonde hair. I loved my costume though!

Here's my November bucket list:
-Make hot cocoa and drink it whilst curled up in covers reading a good book.
-See Mockingjay Part 2 in theaters with my friends.
-Volunteer at our local historical society and uncover old secrets.
-Have a midnight snack. (a weird one I know, but I've never had a midnight snack)
-Frolic in the leaves.
-Spin around in circles outside.
-Make something for someone.
-Appreciate the life that I have and the world that we live in.

Until next time-
Lady Claire
