100 Things

Those were just some more highlights of my trip. In other words: pictures of me with my baby boy, Neven Daniel. I have the most adorable nephew on the planet and I love him so much. He's my favorite. As well as pictures of me with my kitties and my dog whom I miss. :)

I've been blogging since around March 2011. Since then, a person who has inspired me the most has been Sarah from A Lost Feather. I think that she is just a truly genuine person and she inspires me a lot. She has this portion of her blog dedicated to 100 things she wants to do. She seems to always be active and her list of 100 things inspired me to compile my own list. Now, I've been working and rewriting this list for the past year. And I'm stuck. I just don't know what else to put down for now. However, I do have a good number. Some of these may change, but here goes it:

I did a Ladies Survey!

the questions:

1. Who are your favourite female YouTubers?
Jenna Marbles

2. Who are your favourite female athletes?
I don't really have one. Umm..? Ginny Weasley! :)

3. What is your favourite book written by a female with a female protagonist?
The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls it is amazing.

4. What is your favourite film written by a female with a female protagonist?
Any Nora Ephron movies! Especially, When Harry met Sally

5. Who is your favourite female fictional character?
Hermione Granger! Where would Harry Potter be without her?

6. What is the biggest problem facing female creators today (and any solutions)?
Comparisons between other creators and harassment. Everyone is different and we need to remember to think before we type because we could be hurting someone. I may be different than you, but that doesn't make me better in anyway.

7. Do you think youtube and online video in general are better or worse suited than television for tackling the problems and prejudices women face in the workplace?
Better, we are able to express ourselves without a script and we aren't sexualized (not a word? Hahaa) by producers. We get to be whomever we wish to be and youtube is a great opportunity to talk about what we want to talk about.

8. What do you pledge to do to make the internet a better environment for all creators?
Think before I type and accept everyone no matter who they are.

9. Tell us a story/secret whatever featuring women!
Just talking and sharing secrets with friends. Also, I guess this blog counts. I share secrets here all the time. :)

I tag you guys. Please do this survey and post a link to it down there! Also, if anyone can, subscribe to my youtube channel for more vlogging fun! Sorry for the quality of the video, I did it in a closet and I wasn't aware that there would be so much background noise..

Stay Beautiful xx

Chicago; Planning for London, VidCon and LeakyCon Summer 2013.

I started a vlog. It's just a way to talk about my life except out loud. I sound really annoying in the first two in my opinion, but I just started so I hope to get better as I go along. So, you guys should head over and give my videos a watch perhaps. :) Sorry for the quality and the annoying-ness.

I arrived back from Chicago which is nice. It was a long two weeks. I took some pictures of my sister  and my mom the last day. Here are a couple favorites:

Also, here is my favorite picture ever of my sister and I:

They are so gorgeous :)

Anyways, nothing is really new with me.. I'm really excited about the vlog I started so, I hope you guys will check it out. I've wanted to make one for a long time and now I finally am! :)

So, I'm planning out next summer already! I've been wanting to go to London for a really long time and I asked one of my brothers if he would want to go with me next summer and so, we are! I'm also planning on going to Anaheim, California for Vidcon next year and I also plan on going to Leakycon. Pretty exciting for me. I'm finally on my own. There is technically nothing keeping me grounded. I'm just happy. :)

Blogging really inspires me. It makes me feel like I can say anything and I like feeling like I can express myself. Thanks for giving me that power.

Stay Beautiful xx
