Random Fall Favorites //2014\\

Hey everyone! Today I'm going to be showing you all some random "fall things" that I've really been loving recently. Some of these are hardly fall-related, though, so it'll definitely be a bit random :) I hope you liked this post because I went outside to take these pictures, and BRRR :) It is honestly so freezing here guys, it's just horrible. I mean, don't get me wrong, I like the cold to some extent, but here it's just super cold, yet the sun is shining, so I really just want to go outside and do something, but as soon as I go out, I'm just like, "Uh-uh, no way am I staying out here" See what I mean? Yeah well, I should be grateful for this weather. In the summertime, when the sun beats mercilessly down on me, I wish for this weather, and in this weather, I wish for sweltering summer heat. Aaah..... such goes the feelings of me.... :D Yeah well, I guess I should stop rambling here..... How have you all been doing lately? How's school going? Oh, and what's your favorite hot drink for the fall time? I don't really have one, I mean, I just go with the standard, hot chocolate :) 

1.) Glutino Brownie Mix - Mmmmmmmmm..... these are uh-mazing. Personally I'm not gluten-free or anything, but when I saw the ingredients, I was literally shocked at how healthy it was. Guys, it has rice flour. ;O So I had to give these a try, and I was shocked again. They are absolutely delicious. I promise. I was really hesitant at first, since the packaging wasn't super appealing or anything, but they were superb :) I'm a huge chocolate lover, and these hit the spot. I don't have any pictures to show you of the finished product,but if you ever get the chance to try this, do try it! It won't disappoint you! (I hope ;) 

2.) Girls Gone Wise in a World Gone Wild - You may or may not have heard me talk about this before on my blog, but I really love this book. I received this book as a gift, and the cover captured my heart. (metaphorically speaking ;) I mean, don't you just love the front cover? And the book itself is really profound and thought-provoking. It really helped me and I definitely  recommend it. If you ever get the chance to pick it up, do! It's inspired me to live a fuller, godlier life and yeah.... it's just really good :) nuff said. 

3.) Tissue box? (Whaaat, Autumn?) Hehe, so this isn't exactly a favorite, but I just thought I'd show it to you because I really loved the design. Don't you just love the floral print? 

4.) TRESemm√© Keratin Infusing Smoothing Serum - I actually don't even know if that's what this is actually called, but yeah :) I got this a while back, and HFIFKFJJHIFERFJK, it is amazingness <3 It works really well and for anyone looking for something like this, give this one a try! I've actually owned several products similar to this one, and they all worked fairly well, but this one worked great too, so I'm pretty sure once this one is empty, I'll be back at the store looking for the next one :) 

 5.) Wanna Play? Body Spray - I also don't know what company this would be by, (A lot of things I'm not knowing today :) but it smells soooo good! It's just one my many, many body sprays that I love. Like seriously, guys, there are so many body sprays that smell so good, it's so hard to choose one to put on in the morning :D 

6.) Country Chic Fragrance Mist (B&BW) - This is by Bath and Body Works and I think they still have the same Country Chic, but it looks totally different. I think that's what I remember from the last time I was in there. See, I got this a long, looooong time ago, then hardly ever used it until more recently when I rediscovered it. It's also one of my favorite scents and must-haves. Which scent do you like best by Bath and Body Works? 

 7.) This bag/purse - So I also got this a while ago, but recently I have been using it a lot more. I just love the design on it and especially the handles. They're amazing :) Oh, and on the picture ^^^^ there, see that glint of sunshine on the side? At first when I looked at it I was like, "What is that?" lol

7.) Infinity Scarf - And lastly, this beautiful, blue infinity scarf. XD. I actually just got this in September along with a black one, so I'm really excited to wear scarves a lot more this year. I used to never really wear them, but more recently I decided to just wear them and who cares what people think? :D I really love the print on this scarf, it's so pretty :) 

B o n u s   p h o t o ♥ 

So I hope you guys liked this post and what's your favorite thing about fall? And what scent do you like best from Bath and Body Works? I honestly don't even know what mine would be, maybe just the mix of all of them.You know when you first go into the store you just smell all those scents mixed together? Yeah, maybe that. But anyways, have a great week and I'll see you again next week :) 

Thanks for reading and God bless <3

♦ Just a Bunch of Pictures & Quick Trip to the Library ♦


So basically these were just a few pictures I've taken over the year [s] :) Obviously, because some were like taken in the spring, and it's obviously not spring anymore :( *Glances outside at the cold, chilly night* But- Fall is amazing too :D

So - now for my library trip:) It was super cold and foggy and rainy this past Monday, and definitely October. So after school, guess where I went? THE LIBRARY!!! Hip hip hooray!!! Orrr not......Yeah, about that :)

Well, see, I had to get a classic book for a school project and so I went to the library. I asked the librarian if they had the classics somewhere, and her somewhat disappointing answer was, "They're scattered throughout the library." UGHHHH..... How was I supposed to go through the entire library to find one. classic. book. So, I went to one of the library computers and searched up "classic" in the genre thingy, and there were like 110 results. Really? I was pretty much on the verge of despair. So I went to the non-fiction section and literally spent half-an-hour traveling back and forth from there to the computer every five minutes. Hmm..... So finally, I remembered a book I had got there last year, so I looked it up on the computer card catalog, and YESSSS!!!!! It was there! So I went and found it, and right beside it was another that one looked pretty interesting. So I picked it up as well. So, as I was getting ready to check out my stuff, I went to the fiction/juvenile fiction (I honestly don't even know what it was :) section and picked up some pretty interesting books as well. So on the way home I decided to spruce this post up a bit (because, in all honesty, who likes looking at a bunch of weird photos  taken by me? XD ) So I took some pictures of my books and thought I'd show you and if you've read any of these books, let me know if they're good or not! Also, what genres do you guys like reading? I LOVEEE Mystery and Comedy and Drama and just about anything that'll tide me over and leave me speechless :D

Oh- and if you're wondering if I got a classic, yes, I finally found THREE classics by E.B. White (He wrote classic right ? RIGHT? RIGHT? If you know, pleeeease tell me. Cuz I'm almost positive he did.... and he better have because I need it for school! ;) in the fiction section. Like, WHAT? So I ended putting the two books I had found in the Non-fic section away... I literally put away half-an-hour's worth of work. *sigh* :) Yeah,well... And wow I rambled quite a bit :)

 Book #1 : Stuart Little. So, this is the book I found as a classic. I think I'm going to use it and it looked pretty interesting. I knew it was fairly popular, so have any of you guys read it?

 Book #2 : Escape into the Night. This book is part of the "The Riverboat Adventures" series. I actually read the whole series like years ago, so I think it'll be be fun to re-read. I think I actually enjoyed it, so yeah..... And I know the pictures turned out pretty bad for this one so, sorry :)

 Book #3 : Behind Enemy Lines. Personally, I don't know if this is a popular series, but my library has the whole collection (seriously, guys, there's like forty-two!). I'm on book 13, and I really love this series. I saw the first movie on it, (the movies not on the kids ones though) and it's EXHILARATING.  lol, I always loved big words. But, really, I do like these books. And my library only has the series for the Left Behind >The Kids< series, so, I'll just finish this series and then look around for the older version. Quick background : There's the kids series and the adult series (I think.... not 100% sure) Anybody else know?

 Book #4 : Mystery of the 99 Steps + The Clue in the Crossword Cipher. So my library has some Nancy Drew books that are two in one. HOW AMAZING IS THAT????? Pretty amazing. I've always loved Nancy Drew, and since it's mystery, it's one of my favorite reads :) Absolutely can't wait to read this sometime! I actually think I read the first book years ago, but I'll just re-read it because it's that interesting :)

Book #5 : A Surprise for Caroline. Just love my American Girl books, right? hehe... actually I have another blog >>> CLICKYYY HEREEE <<<<  on which I want to do a review of this book since I've never read an AG book (save one?) so I thought it would be fun to get one and do a review on it on that blog, since that blog is more dedicated to dolls anyways :) 


OK, so that wraps up this post. Thank you so much for reading, and, and, and.... Stuart Little is a classic, right? lol, no, actually I don't really care, if it's not, yeah well, it's not the end of the world; but I would like if it would be a classic :) So what have you been up to lately? What genres do you like reading? Bookworm or no? (If not, WHYYYYYYYYYY?????????)

And by the way, anyone else already excited for Christmas? It's only 3 MONTHS AWAY! Or two, I don't know, are we counting October too? Yeah well, in either case, it's so soon! YEAHHHHHH!!!!!!! hehe... well have a wonderful, richly blessed week :) 

Thanks for reading and God bless <3
