2018 was a blast, it was quite a good year. Every year has its ups as well as downs. I went through a lot of changes, some good, some bad.

School and my interests changed. I realized how to create a healthy balance between education and my social life. I discovered some of my passions; volleyball, art, blogging, and pursued them even further.

One highlight was volleyball. I was part of an amazing team of girls, and we made it so far. At the beginning of the season we were falling apart, losing the majority of our games, but we put in the hard work and effort and it payed off. We placed third in our city, fifth on the island and even went to provincials. It was the first time in history that a volleyball team from my school made it that far.

Every year has its downs, my friend group changed and of course drama came along with that. But everything worked out in the end and I am so happy now. I have the best friends I could ever ask for. They make me feel happy and more like myself. I’m so grateful for them.

But we made it and are entering 2019. And its gonna be a good one.

holiday wishlist *

Hello lovelies,

Long time no see, I apologize. I’ve been quite busy with school, volleyball and just life in general. School is going well, a little stressful at times, but the holidays are right around the corner. I’m going to be sticking around, so I will have lots of time to blog. I’ve also been quite busy because of volleyball. My school volleyball team did very well this year. We placed third in the city, and then went to provincials in Vancouver. We placed top 20 ( out of 400 teams ) which is pretty good! Anyways, I am super excited for the holidays and decided to put together a little gift guide / wish list.

I’m not asking for all of these items, they are just to give you some ideas of what to ask for / give others!

3 diy christmas gifts

Processed with VSCO with hb2 preset

Hello lovelies! Christmas is just around the corner, so I decided to share with you guys some christmas gift ideas that you can make at home! You can make these gifts for any occasion, not just christmas.

If you are like me, you save all your christmas shopping until the last minute, but this year I am going to be prepared and I encourage you to do so too!

So enjoy! If you do make any of these, please let me know!  x x x  Jasper

Add a spoonful of this to your bath for a sooth and relax your body.

Processed with VSCO with hb2 preset

y o u    w i l l    n e e d :

epsom salts

scented foaming bath (you can also use 10-15 drops of essential oil)

food colouring (optional)

a jar or container

2 bowls

2 spoons

Processed with VSCO with hb1 preset

Divide the epsom salt into two bowls. Add in your scent. I used a lavender scented foaming bath, which has a soapy consistency. I added in around a tablespoon. If you are using essential oil, add in 10-15 drops. Next add in the food colouring. I only added a drop and as you can tell, a little goes a long way. I decided to leave one bowl (left) unscented and uncoloured, but it is up to you.

Processed with VSCO with hb2 preset

Stir until the food colouring and scent is evenly distributed.

Next take a spoonful of each and layer it in your jar. Be as creative as you want, you can even make it rainbow if you wanted too! I added a label to make it a tad bit fancier. And you are finished!

I am absolutely in love with this necklace! It is gorgeous and completely customizable. Oh, and super easy to make!

y o u    w i l l    n e e d :

clay

string

paint & sharpies to decorate

IMG_0288

First you are going to shape the clay into beadlike shapes. I used a pencil to poke a hole in the centre. Next, bake them in the oven. For the clay that I used, you are supposed to bake at 95° for 30 minutes, but follow the instructions on the package of your clay.

Processed with VSCO with hb1 preset

Once they get out of the oven, the fun begins! Decorating! I used sharpies and acrylic paint to decorate the beads.

Once you have finished decorating, string a chain or twine through the beads and you are done!

This diy lip scrub exfoliates your lips and tastes great! At lush, you can purchase lip scrubs for $10, but you probably have all the ingredients in your kitchen!

Processed with VSCO with hb2 preset

vanilla extract (or whatever scent you want)
food colouring
granulated sugar
olive oil
empty container

Processed with VSCO with hb1 preset

Your first step is to add 1/2 a tsp of granulated sugar and 1/2 a teaspoon of olive oil together in a bowl.

Processed with VSCO with hb1 preset

Add a drop of vanilla extract and mix together. Add 1 or 2 drops of food colouring. I recommend sticking to neutral tones, because if you add too much it might dye your lips!

Processed with VSCO with hb1 preset

Put the mixed product in a container and you are finished!

 

 

I hope you enjoyed these three diys! Thank you for reading
