Lovely Magazines

I know, my blogposts might be getting ever so slightly excessive (5th one in one day) but I'm sick and incredibly bored.

I really enjoy reading magazines for middle-aged housewives. Which is rather odd considering that I'm 14. It's very relaxing reading about people's struggles with cooking or their husbands. I also really like the articles about how to schedule your life, of course usually it's about scheduling cooking and picking up your children from daycare and school. Which I don't really do yet.

My favorite old lady magazines are Easy Living, Real Simple and then one other which I seem to have forgotten the name of.

 Unfortunately, the last two of these three, I can only get in England. Which is sad since I don't live there.

Alice in Wonderland

I have a bit of a thing for Alice and Wonderland. I just absolutely adore it. She reminds me a bit of myself, she just sort of wanders around happily. Which is what I like to do. Here's some lovely quotes from the books. (if you haven't read them, you really should. They're far better than the movies.)

We're all mad here.
-Cheshire Cat

Twinkle, twinkle little bat, how I wonder where you're at.
-The Hatter

Sentence first, verdict after.
-The Queen

Curiouser and curiouser!

If it had grown up, I think it would have made a dreadfully ugly child; but it makes a rather handsome pig, I think.

and then here are some lovely Alice in Wonderland inspired pictures!

Keep Calm and Carry on!

I love keep calm and carry on. It originated in world war II, they posted up billboards all over London telling people too keep calm and carry on, even though there were bombs being dropped left right and center. Anyway, here are some entertaining spinoffs.

Of course, the real keep calm and carry on is cute too, but these are much funnier.


I do ballet and I think it's the most fun sport in the world. It's so relaxing and beautiful. I'm not particularly good at it, since I just started this year, but oh well.

This is only a small portion of my extreme quantities of ballet photos. I have many more which I will post eventually. (if I posted them all now, people would probably think I was remarkably strange and ever so slightly psychotic.)

This is my blog.

I'm making a blog, because I realized I've managed to collect about 700 artsy photos on my computer. I figure I might as well share all of this through a blog. So, enjoy!

These are some photos of my room. I love to arrange and rearrange things, so I spend quite a bit of time doing this... Probably should be doing homework instead. but oh well
