Random Updates {and a new {interesting} favorite word}dr

Favorite new word:

Buttress. Wikipedia definition:


buttress is an architectural structure built against or projecting from a wall which serves to support or reinforce the wall.[1] Buttresses are fairly common on more ancient buildings, as a means of providing support to act against the lateral (sideways) forces arising out of the roof structures that lack adequate bracing.
The term counterfort can be synonymous with Buttress,[2] and is often used when referring to dams, retaining walls and other structures holding back earth. 

drinking:

sweet iced tea. without the ice. {from Chick-fil-a}

being:

Lazy. and preserving 12 chicken nuggets for three servings.

doing:

hmm, wonder what I'm doing now.... ;)

reading:

Anne of Avonlea. I SHOULD be reading Kristy's Great Idea for a book club but I have an odd rule {that I often break} never to read two books at the same time. It gets too confusing.

Happy Monday! Let's hope the ''HORRORstorm'' won't affect Halloween, for those who celebrate it.

My little elf ear is not to be forgotten! {In other words, a review}

Just notice that ''review'' part, okay?
Okay.

Today I am review a lovely no piercing ear cuff from ArianrhodWolfchild.


 The listing had many colors to choose from, so I choice Peacock Blue. {not my elf ear shown}
 She added a ''captive ball'' ear cuff for free! Wasn't that nice?! My mom wanted it, so I gave it to her. She slept in it and wore it around and it DIDN'T fall off!
They came in this lovely packaging! It's teal with gold roses.

Pros: 
Packaging was nice and arrived promptly and undamaged
She put in a paper about how to put your ear cuff on {which I thought was very helpful.... I was having a ''brunette'' {blonde} day}
The ear cuffs were bubble-wrapped

Cons:
You can't put it on without a red ear for a couple of minutes {unless you push it out to make it bigger but that would cause it to fall off easily}*


*But then again, it's only a red ear. You aren't going to die. Just put it on a few minutes before you go out in public. 

I give this FIVE stars! It is wonderful!


Would I buy something from ArianrhodWolfchild?

  Absolutely! I thought she made it and sent it very well. 



















You guys never fail to amaze me.

ArianrhodWolfchild Giveaway {50 follower giveaway!}

Fifty followers, you shall be glad you followed me with this giveaway! If you would like to sponsor another 50 follower giveaway, check out my sponsoring page.

The sponsor for this giveaway is ArianrhodWolfchild! ArianrhodWolfchild works with wire to make no piercing earrings! More about ArianrhodWolfchild:

I first started making wire jewelry when I was working as a street vendor with a booth in California. When I moved, I had to stop making jewelry and get a "regular" job. I always missed working with stones, crystals and wire, so now I am very happy to be back doing something I love.

Ear cuffs are what I most enjoy designing and making, as I love the look of multiple piercings, but I hate pain! There are just so many wonderful ways of wearing them too, that the fun goes on and on.

There is something about wire that just inspires me and it is my favourite material to work with. :)

There will be slight variations in each piece of jewelry since I make each one by hand. :)

I have another Etsy shop called Blessed Be UK which features mostly vintage jewelry.

 

Once again, this is her Etsy shoppe! Isn't everything beautiful? NO PAIN REQUIRED! =D

ArianrhodWolfchild is sponsoring this in any color you like {see color listings}:

No Piercing "Triple Loops" Helix Cuff Ear Cuff Handmade 1 Cuff Silver Tone or 17 Color Choices

Isn't it cute? Here are the colors you can get it in:

No Piercing "Triple Loops" Helix Cuff Ear Cuff Handmade 1 Cuff Silver Tone or 17 Color Choices

1. This is a giveaway thanking my 50 followers. Due to that, you must be a follower to enter!

2. I do check entries, so no cheating!

Into the forest we go, we go // HAIRCUT`! // 50 followers!

Has a creepy sound to it, doesn't it? *evil laughter*

My little minions -uh- peeps-- have been talking about some protest I'm supposedly having. Where did that come from? I assure you, I am not protesting.

With that said, let's get to the true creepiness of this post. XD

 This are my new sock-ies! I finally have pretty socks...
 I like all of these colors blended together. {The point of this picture: it was freezing cold outside and I was wearing shorts....}

Look deep into the woods child, where elves do their work best,
Where fair-children become fairies,
Where pixies grow,
Where the giants lurk,
And naughty children creep in.
 
 Yes- that's it! Look back to your house.
Go back in- the forest of Elvendair is no place for you
Back to home, where mommy loves you,
Back home, where your supper is waiting cold.
 Yes- get closer!
Run now, your dinner is getting colder,
Run now, the giants are creeping out,
Run now, the fairies haven't eaten for a year now,
Run now, dear child, the shadows are getting closer.


Foolish child!
Don't go any farther,
You'll slip into the giant's den,
Don't go any farther,
I see the glimmer of blue wings,
Don't go any farther,
I see the pixies waiting for their yearly meal.
 

This is it, I declare!
I see them getting closer,
I see them getting hungrier,
I feel them getting restless,
I feel them shrieking for dinner,
I smell the rot of giants,
I smell the despair of things long before you. 
 Turn back!
Yes, that's a good child.
The path is clear,
Your choices are clear,
Die or live, 
Which shall you choice?
 Ah, so the golden trees are waving to you?
They are neutral, but they always like extra dinner when they can have it,
Go closer if you wish,
You've disobeyed me many times already.
Shall I care if you are gotten?
Nay, you may make your choice.
*AHHHHHHHHHH!*
Dear child, I fear you may have found out,
why you have no children to play with in the village.

Such a horrible poem thingy, right? I wrote it. :D I sometimes enjoy creeping myself out {I think there's a song by Green Day with lyrics like that...}.

Did you like it?

ZE HAIRCUT:


The poll showed a tie between the Carly Rae J. and the HD one, so I choose HD. That is the picture I gave to my hair-cutter/stylist.

And this is what you got?! Communication skills may not have been so keen between us. 
But if it makes you happy, I can make it look like I got the CRJ one. ;)


50 FOLLOWERS!

Aww, thank you so much, guys! I love you all! Don't worry, I am planning some giveaways for y'all. Stay tuned on that. :)

Review of Hotel Transylvania // Giveaway Winner

Due to a missed {CO-OP} field trip, my Mom took [brother, brother, me] to the movie theaters to see Hotel Transylvania! Yeah, I saw that.....

Review:

[given] rating: PG

My rating: PG

Summary *may have slight spoilers*: Mavis' {played by Selena Gomez.... I was surprised!} father is too over-protective. He goes to great lengths to make sure she never goes out of their hotel or falls in love. But when a human finds his way into the monster only hotel, Mavis gets zinged {watch the movie, yo}. The human, Jonathan, turns the classic, old-timey hotel into a mon-sta party!

My thoughts: This was a cute movie. I enjoyed it {and this is NOT due to the fact I was munching on the largest smallest bag of pretzel M'n'Ms, or that NOBODY else was in the theater!}. There were no questionable parts {maybe slight kissing and mobs... but other than that....}.
I think Mavis should have had her mother's eyes. She looked too much like her father, Dracula, for my tastes.

Stars: 4 and a half.

Would I suggest it to you? Totally. It's PG, why would I not suggest it to you?


GIVEAWAY WINNER OF MANIFACETED GIVEAWAY:

EMMA WRIGHT!
Congrats, girl! I've sent an email your way. 

By the way, gals, I got ze haircut! {Hopefully} later in the week I'll post the results and a curling tutorial.

MY EARS ARE SHAPED DIFFERENTLY {view last end of post}

*Possible future thoughts from you and others: ''Woah. She's posting AGAIN?!''

Yeah, well, I know it. And I'm not sorry.  Have you noticed the posts this week have been giveaway posts and a link up?

C'mon, buddy. You can't count that as a post!

So today I'm posting because I feel like it. And I feel the need to write something magical. So whether this post is magical or not, it's up to you.

Random Thought 1:

I haven't posted my own photography for almost forever! I know I'm not too good at that, but that's really not an excuse. :p 


Random thought 2:

It's snowing. Yes, snowing. Not at my house, but at Storyteller's house. To quote part of my comment:

''GIRL, I'M GONNA FIND YOU AND MOVE IN RIGHT NEXT TO YOU! {waahahaha}''

Yes, I really said that. I 'twas kidding, be of course.

Random thought 3: 

Pinterest. Coffee. Curly hair. Possible dyeing {wash-out dye, of course, unless I really like it. Yeah, me mom says it's my hair and I can do what I want with it {random interruption: I have a friend who dyed her hair blue. Permanently.}}

{all of these photos are from Pinterest unless other stated}

  Whoa... I think my inner-fangirl just had a nerd attack.

{My inner fan-girl DIED!}

it took me a second to get it but i got it!!! XD

{click to make larger} LOL, I got it right away.

 
i feel like this sometimes...:)

Random thought 4:

I have a Pinterest board called : ''My colors and I shall rule the world''

Random thought 5:

A movie I really want to see is coming out on a special date for me. I can't say why, but I can say I am {most likely, unless anything other comes up} going to see the midnight release of it!

Random thought 6: 

I curled my hair today and everybody thought I had gotten it cut, because it bunged up like crazy {my hair goes to my shoulder, but with it curled it went up to my jaw}. One lady thought it was naturally curly and I just straighten it all the time, and that was awesome. She was close to the truth though, because my hair is naturally wavy. =D

Last random thought 7:

Something utterly horrible happened. I swear, I am the only person this has ever happened to.

My ears, the just..... 

they just....

they just...

fell off. {LOL, just kidding.}

My ears Really, they just...

they just...

they just...

are misshaped. You might be going oh, that's okay! No it's not. ONE IS SHAPED DIFFERENTLY THAN THE OTHER! Picture proof:

See? See that little elf ear? Click it if you need to see better {sorry for the slightly crazed look on my face}.
My other ear. TOTALLY NOT ELV-ISH!

Cry with me, lampy.

Wenesday Hodgepodge

Hey, all y'all {ha ha}!

1. It's a brand new month...share one thing you're looking forward to in October.



Just one thing? Well... okay. Working on different outfits for Halloween/Halloween based off of events. My family and I go trick-or-treating, but at the AWANA I go to {last year - woot!} we have an event based off of that holiday. It has to be from the Bible, so normally I create different costumes.

2.  Is chivalry dead?  Explain.


I like what Joyce from From This Side of the Pond said. Let me ''quote'' part of it:


''Not dead, but sometimes hard to find in 2012. Our culture is very me-centered these days and rudeness abounds. The word essentially means having the qualities of a knight-courtesy, generosity, and bravery.''


It is hard to find, but I believe you can awaken it by showing it. Show chivalry to everybody {even those who tick you off}, and they will wonder what's inside that person that makes them so kind and wonderful.
I know, it's easier said than done, but still. :)

3.  On October 2, 1950 the Peanuts comic strip made its debut.  Which character is your favorite?  Which character is most like you?  (Charlie Brown, Lucy, Linus, Shroeder, Snoopy, Woodstock, or Pig Pen)  If you need a description click here .


I was Linus. :) {I took a test-thingy!}

4.  What's something you're competitive about? 


Drawing. I take pride in all of my art, yes, but I'm better at drawing. So basically it's like: 'If you are good, you may not draw near me. Understood?'
Of course, it's one of my faults I have to work on.

5. October is National Popcorn Popping Month...are you a fan?  How do you like your popcorn?


I didn't know that, cool! Yeah, I am. I like salty popcorn dripping with butter, but I normally only get that at movie theaters. So normally I don't eat popcorn.

6.  When did you first realize the world is small?
 
I've been to Disney once or twice, and I remember riding the 'It's a Small, small World' ride. I never took that into account, but I always enjoyed the ride to it's fullest instead. Well, sorta. Those dolls creep me out. ;p

Back to place. I think sometimes you can know something, but just not think about it. Like one time I saw a girl I know with her point shoes. She was old enough to have them, and inside I knew she had them, I just never thought about it so it never entered my mind I knew it.

7.  In terms of architecture, what's the most beautiful building you've seen up close and in person?


Hmm... that's pretty hard! I really don't know.

8.  Insert your own random thought here.

My knock-off TOMS from Wet Seal arrived today. The quality isn't the best, but I still love 'em. :)
 I got these one and these ones {they were having a sale, and still are!}. If you prefer the real deal {and have stinkin' small feet! The real ones went only up to 8.5 {women's}, and I'm a 9 {and done growing}}, I have an outlet store for you. They have their real TOMS cheap! Here's the link:
 Okay, never mind with that. My computer isn't letting me go to it! I pinned it on my Pinterest board, so I'll give you that link. Then you just click on the picture and view those awesome TOMS. Link:

http://pinterest.com/pin/91338698663754558/

There we go! Have a happy Wednesday!
