Thrift Store Haul

Standard
Thrift Store Haul

Hey everyone!

A few days ago my mom, a couple sisters, a friend who was visiting us and I, went on a girl’s date. We went out to eat, and to a thrift store. It was a really good time!

I enjoy reading other people’s store hauls, so I thought it would be fun to do a haul of everything I got at the thrift store we went to. πŸ˜„ (I’m going to save my favorite thing for last, so stay tuned for the end!)

  1. The first thing I got is this purple star sweatshirt. The star is made of sequins, which I don’t usually love, but I liked the star, so. πŸ˜‚

2. A striped blue and tan shirt. I love the colors!

2. A white and teal plaid shirt. I love the colors on this one too.

3. A purple t-shirt. I don’t really have almost any purple clothes, so I wanted to change that. 😜 This one will have to be saved for when it warms up though.

4. A pink and white skirt. Talk about colorful, lol!

6. An oversized navy blue sweatshirt. This one is so comfortable!

7. A hat. I don’t wear hats all that often, but I like the way they look, lol. πŸ˜…

8. A pair of black flats. my other pair was getting worn out, so I’m glad to have found these. Plus, I really like them!

9. I was really surprised to find this necklace with an “R”!

10. And now for the last, and my absolute favorite item. A gray jumper. I LOVE this, and it really comfortable, and can dress up and down easily. So glad I found this!

Oh, and also, this is NOT something I bought, but sometimes Lizzie and I like to try on the highest, weirdest looking high heels we can find, just for fun. 🀣 We were falling around trying to walk in them, lol! It was really fun/funny. πŸ˜‚

Thanks for reading this post! I hope y’all enjoyed. Which outfit was your favorite? πŸ™ƒ

February Bullet Journal Setup

Standard
February Bullet Journal Setup

Hey everyone! πŸ˜€

IT’S FEBRUARY!!! Well, actually it’s not. Yet. TWO MORE DAYS! πŸ˜€ It’s hard to believe the first month of 2021 is over. Well, technically not, but practically!πŸ˜‚

Ok I’ll stop now, LOL.

This months Bujo theme is……

Red/Pink/Hearts!

SO unoriginal, I know. I’m sure you guys are shocked that I would even think of such a thing for February.

Ok, all sarcasm aside….. I know that this is a super unoriginal theme for February, and I was planning on doing something else at first. However, I just decided that I felt like doing hearts and everything, so I’m doin’ it. (Even though probably 53,490 people have probably already done it before!) πŸ˜‚ 😜

Ok, so here is the cover page, and a Bible verse that I thought fit well with the theme.

After that, I have my February calendar. I messed up on the edge of the second page, so I just decided to cut it off, and try a dutch door for the first time. πŸ™‚ I think it turned out pretty good.

On the other side of the dutch door, I have random trackers, and then a mood tracker.

My habit tracker… πŸ˜€ I used a similar design as I did last month, because it worked really well for me.

And I gratitude log, where I shall *attempt* to write down something I’m thankful for each day.

I made a Blog and Youtube tracker to track my posts, as well as a page to track the books I’m reading.

And lastly, here is the first of my weekly spread. Yes, I am very aware that I spelled “February” wrong on this page. And yes, it bothers me tremendously. Lol! XD

I hope you guys enjoyed this post! Feel free to copy anything I do in you own journal. πŸ˜€

I’m really excited for February, and I hope y’all have a great month!!

Art Lover Award//I Created my own Tag!

Hey guys!

There are so many tags for writers, and so many tags for blogger. Literally, SO. MANY. πŸ˜‚ But what I have yet to see, much to my disdain, is a tag/award for artists.

So, without farther ado, I present to you……!!!!!! *drumroll please* *Bangs on my desk* The ART LOVER AWARD!!!

So basically, this tag is for anyone who loves art. Or even people who just LIKE art. (And if you don’t even like it, I’m sorry. I truly am.)

This is my first time creating a tag, though I’ve wanted to for forever. I got re-inspired when my friend Emma suggested it to me in my Blog Survey. And I have finally gotten around to it, so YAY! πŸ˜€ SO EXCITING. Can’t wait to get started!

Probably one of these three paintings. πŸ˜€

3. What’s your least favorite artwork you’ve done, and what did you learn from it?

Of my larger paintings, maybe this one. The mountains look like giant arrow heads stuck in ground, LOL. And I don’t really like the river either. I definitely learned what doesn’t work while painting mountains. πŸ˜‚ I still like the painting though, just not my favorite. πŸ˜‰

4. What was the last piece of art you did?

This painting of a lavender field. I’m still trying to decide how much I like it… XD

My new favorite thing to paint is mountains! They’re so much fun to paint. πŸ˜€

Hey everyone!

First off, I’d like to say thank you to everyone who took my blog survey. Your answers were really helpful, and your ideas were inspiring. So thank you!! If you haven’t taken the survey yet, you can do so HERE. All feedback is much appreciated!

And also, for those of you who took the survey… Remember that blank question? Well, that was an accident at first, but then I decided it would be funny to just leave it to see what people would do with it. I loved seeing what some of you put, lol! πŸ˜‚

Anyway, back to business. I’m super excited about this post, because… who doesn’t like memes?!?!? And I think it’s high time that I post something dedicated to them. Today, I shall be posting memes for all you writers out there! (I one one of these a few years ago, that you can see HERE) I hope you guys enjoy, and that these make you smile. (Or better yet, laugh!!!)

I hope you guys enjoyed these – I sure enjoyed putting them together! Which memes do you relate with the most?

Love,

RosyπŸ’–πŸŒ»πŸŒΉ

P.s. What’s your author’s psehudomnum? πŸ˜€ Mine is Scarlett Q. Livingston. LOL! 🀣

Hey everyone!

I know I haven’t posted in a good little while…. To be honest, I’m kind of lacking post ideas at the moment. So, after after quite a lot of thinking (literally, for days), I decided that a survey of my blog was in order. I would very much love to hear all of y’all’s ideas and feedback!

Thank you guys so much! And I’m hoping to get back to regular posting soon. πŸ˜€

Love,

Rosy

P.S. This is my first post of 2021. (So exciting, huh?!) Lol XD Happy very late New Year, and hope you all have an amazing year. ❀

January Bullet Journal Set Up

Standard

Hey guys! πŸ˜€

Can you believe we’re actually starting 2021? It’s crazy! We can only hope this year proves better better than the last… 😜 But let’s be optimistic! Let’s make 2021 the best year ever! πŸ˜€ Honestly, I’m very excited for this up-coming year. πŸ˜„

I did my planning together with a friend, and bujo buddy of mine, Emma, via video call! It was so much fun, and I enjoyed planning my bujo spreads so much more with her. πŸ˜€ (Bujo stand for bullet journal by the way, in case you didn’t know. You might be hearing me say it a lot from now on, LOL) 😜 😁

For my theme for January, I chose, after mush consideration, deliberation, AND contemplation… (drumroll please)….. Rainbow! Well, just all colors in general. I love all colors, and I and this will make for a bright, happy start to 2021. πŸ˜€

I started out with a quote page, and a monthly intro page. I love all the colors!!! 😍 I’m sort of second guesing all those splats of color I made, but I still like it. πŸ˜‰

This is my absolute favorite calendar page I’ve ever made! I love it! And it was way too much fun to put together….

On this page, I’ll write a little something about my day… each day. πŸ˜‰ This page turned out really cute – and yummy! xD πŸ˜‹

A handy dandy habit tracker, to keep track of some of the thing and I want to do each day.

It took me FOREVER to draw out all these crayons….πŸ˜‚And don’t worry, and the page will be a lot more colorful at the end when I fill them in. 😁

This will help me to keep track of when I post on my blog and youtube tracker. πŸ˜€

Some more random trackers, tracking random things. Randomly.

I’m very excited about this page! Basically I will print out some pictures of my favorite memories from January, and stick them in this mini envelope. This will be so much fun to look back on over the years. πŸ˜€

And lastly, here are my weekly spreads.

I love how January’s spreads turned out. They’re so bright and colorful and cheery, I can’t wait to use them! Another reason to look forward to 2021!!! XD

By the way, I’m thinking about doing a word of the month this up-coming year. Basically what I’ll do is pick a word each month that I want to focus on. For example it could be humility, patience, kindness, etc… Do you guys have any ideas for me? πŸ˜€

I hope you guys enjoyed this post, and happy New Year!

Love,

Rosy πŸ’–
