so this is my backpack, its the black fjallraven kanken in the regular size. and i LOVE it so so so much! it looks pretty small, but it can fit a lot inside and it has many pockets and pouches. i have to wear a uniform at my school, so my backpack is one of the ways i express myself style wise!Screen Shot 2018-08-20 at 2.15.03 PM

so here are the items in my kanken…

 

p e n c i l    c a s e  –  this is pretty self-explanatory, but i have a pencil case with a bunch of pens, markers, pencils, & highlighters!

w a t e r   b o t t l e  –  its really important to stay hydrated during school, so i like having a water bottle in my back pack.

c h a r g e r  –  this is a must have if you are allowed to bring any devices to your school!

l a p t o p  –  at my school we can bring our own laptops or use the schools devices. i just bring my one from home.

h a n d s a n t i z e r  –  another essential because theres lots of germs at school.

s n a c k s  –  i love having a pack of gum and a bag of chips in my backpack incase i get hungry!

h a n d c r e a m   &   l i p b a l m   e t c  –  hygiene products are a must bring to school!

e a r b u d s  –  i sometimes take the bus home from school, so these are a lifesaver!!

i p h o n e  –  my school isn’t very strict about us bringing our phones to school, so bring yours if you’re allowed to.

b o o k s  –  pretty self-explanatory, bring binders, notebooks, etc.

 

thank you so much for reading! don’t forget to read claras post!

I took this photo at Loch Ard Gorge, a spot along the Great Ocean Road in Australia. The view was so breath taking and the water looked gorgeous! I visited Australia when I was 13, and I have been dying to go back ever since! The people and so friendly, the food is great, and of course the scenery is amazing!

Kuang Si Waterfalls near Luang Prabang are gorgeous and a must see if you ever visit Laos! The falls are layered, so you can go swimming and have your own private pool! Just warning you, theres little fish that will nip and at feet, a little scary I know!

The stunning temple, Angkor Wat in Cambodia. We arrived for the sun rise and it was so beautiful. Inside Angkor Wat, are many chambers featuring intricate designs on the walls.

In this photo, you can see the rice fields. I took this photo just outside of Ninh Binh, Vietnam. My family and I slept in a grass hut looking over a lake. I loved visiting Vietnam, the people were so friendly and nice, the food was AMAZING, and scenery was stunning!

This is an image of the black sand beach in Iceland. The sand was so dark, and the beach was so gorgeous! This is a must see in Iceland, go early so you don’t catch the crowds!  The water was quite cold though, so don’t go swimming!

This beach is on the island of Koh Phangan, Thailand. The water was so clear and beautiful, and it was so so so warm!

We took a dragon boat (not pictured in the image) to cruise through Bai Tu Long Bay, Vietnam! We did many activities such as kayaking, swimming, island visiting, and we visitied an oyster farm. These are the boats that took us to the oyster farm.

 

Thank you so much for reading! And thank you Raf for collaborating with me! Remember to go check out her blog!

a room tour

hello!

a room tour is by far my most requested post, so i decided to clean my room and share some photos! i spend most of my time in my room, so i like to keep it organized and pretty looking. we moved into this house almost two years ago, and after hours of rearranging, designing, and planning, i am finally happy with how it looks. i hope you enjoy xx

Screen Shot 2018-03-03 at 2.49.00 PM

this is where i sleep, read, and watch netflix! i wanted it to be quite minimalistic, with a pop of colour. my bed is from ikea along with the light, and the string lights are from vietnam. i have a pretty palm leave and a small box resting on my nightstand, a block of wood.

Screen Shot 2018-03-03 at 2.49.27 PM

i absolutely love this clothing rack! my dad and i made it a couple months ago based on a design we found online by chloe larkin. it is so cute and really easy to make, it only took us half an hour. on my clothing rack, i have my favourite clothing items, the rest are in my closet. i also have my converse and my kanken.

Screen Shot 2018-03-03 at 2.50.34 PM

this is where i do my homework, write blogposts and do art! i don’t know if i enjoy the appearance of my desk right now, it is quite messy and unorganized. anyways, my desk is from ikea, same with the drawers. on my desk is a bunch of art supplies like pencils, paint brushes, and sketchbooks.

Screen Shot 2018-03-03 at 5.29.02 PM

smoothie bowl recipe pt. 2

IMG_9133.JPG

Today I will be sharing a recipe for a mango raspberry smoothie bowl.  My last smoothie bowl recipe was one of my most popular posts, so I decided to make another one! love eating (or is it drinking?) smoothie bowls for breakfast, because they are super healthy and tasty and take little time to make. Also, sorry this one doesn’t look as pretty as my last one. Haha

Hope you enjoy xx

Take out your blender. I used my Magic Bullet. I not sure what type it is, but I am really liking it, and recommend it.

S T E P  T W O :

IMG_9130.JPG

Add your smoothie ingredients. I used frozen mango, frozen raspberries, and mango/peach juice. If you want you can add yogurt.

S T E P  T H R E E :

Next, you blend together until smooth. Then pour in a bowl or glass.

S T E P  F O U R :

Gather up your ingredients. I added strawberries, kiwis, sliced almonds, hemp harts, and honey. yum. (if you want a vegan option, skip the honey)

S T E P  F I V E :IMG_9127.JPG

Assemble your smoothie bowl. Add the larger ingredients first, in my case, the strawberries and kiwi. Add hemp harts and sliced almonds. I also drizzled honey to make it a bit sweeter.

Eat!

I hope you enjoyed this recipe.

It was such a great trip! My family and I had so much fun.
