Inspiration Board

I do not own this!

Diclaimer: I do not own the picture! It was from Lauren Conrad’s Instagram and I was just too lazy to take a picture of mine!

If maybe Pinterest really isn’t your thing but you wanna keep all those pretty things together, what do you do? Start an inspiration board! Recently I have been scrolling mindlessly through Tumblr and Instagram and YouTube which is such a normal thing that I usually maybe every 5 seconds! So recently I have discovered MacBarbie07 on YouTube and I literally am OBSESSED with her! Not the creepy obsessed like I’m a stalker and… well I mean I like her fashion, videos and DIY.

I had watched her roomspiration video and I found this really cool room idea since I have recently moved this past summer and I have finally got my own room without living in a rented home so I can actually Elyseify my room! (And yes Elyseify is word, but sadly the Oxford people haven’t heard of it to put it in the dictionary). She had printed out pictures that she really liked and was going to stick them on her wall in the shape of a heart. If you want to do that, well that sounds really fun! I have also noticed that my friend Sam has an inspiration board on her notebook and maybe Lauren Conrad does too, she had it on Instagram.

If you don’t know what an Inspiration Board, its a place where you put pictures that you love and give you this happy and giddly feeling and you are inspire by it.

Since I have magazines since May 2012 and its February 2013, it was time to do a clean out. I have started what I called my “magazine” sometime last year but I never got up to date with it. So I had cut out the pictures and articles that I liked and then threw away the old magazines (even including the One Direction ones, tear).

To Elyseify my room, I have looked online and have saved pictures from Instagram and Tumblr to a folder which was originally for photoshoot ideas since for Christmas I have gotten a Canon (my new baby!) and was hoping to take very artsy pictures. I was thinking once I get ink in my printer I was going to print the pictures and stick them on my walls so my room doesn’t look like a boring white blob.

My tips to find pictures is like maybe Google, Tumblr, Pinterest, Instagram and maybe even your like pages on Facebook (or is that dead yet). Try to either put the pictures on your wall, a scrap book, a notebook, a bulletin board or even your locker and it will be very funky and cool and give you that giddly feeling!

So get creative with it!

Disclaimer: Found this Jello ad on YouTube, I don’t own anything.

I have found this ad while on Youtube and I’m like why not, I have nothing else to do today so yeah. P.S. there is a reduced sugar version but I don’t think that will be as yummy as I want.

Materials:

  • 2-1/2 cups milk divided
  • 2 packets of KNOX Unflavored Jello (1/4 oz each)
  • 2 oz of melted BAKER’s Bittersweet Chocolate
  • 1 package of JELL-O Chocolate Instant Pudding (3.9 oz)
  • 12 miniature pretzel twists, broken to make little cup holders
  • 1-1/2 thawed COOL WHIP whipped toppings (yummy 🙂
  • 1/4 cup JET-PUFFED Vanilla Mallow Bits (even more yummy)

Directions:

  1. Add 1 and 1/2 cups of milk to dry Jello in small saucepan; then stir. Let sit for 3 minutes for it to become soft. Cook and stir on medium hear 3 minutes so it will dissolve. Remove it from the heat source and add the chocolate in while stirring it. Also cool it 5 more minutes.
  2. Beat pudding and milk in a medium bowl with whisk for 2 minutes. Add in JELLO and whisk it in. Separate in into shot cups that have already been spreaded with pan spray to come out nicely after 3 hours of refrigerate.
  3. Tap the little chocolate out of cups and placing them on a plate. Add a pretzel that has been broken to the side of each chocolate cup to similar to a mug. Add COOL WHIP to the top of each and add little marshmallows for the finishing touch.

I might not have explained it as well as they can so go to kraftbrands and hopefully you’ll find other yummy recipes! Hope your Christmas was fun!

Hot Chocolate

So today, hurricane Sandy is currently going pass over my house (thank God I still have power). Also today is also a good day for some hot cocoa.

You’re probably thinking there might be 1 way to make hot chocolate but you are wrong. Today I recently introduced my youngest brother on a different way to make hot cocoa and myself on how to make it extra chocolately. So bare with me because there are a few different ways to make this horrible weather drink.

Materials:
Cup
Milk
A pack from a Milk Chocolate/Marshmallows box

One way: Use milk instead of water (my brother pretty much thanked me the whole day to introducing him this way, FYI he is 13 and doesn’t even like milk).

Extra chocolate. Just do what you normally do to make hot chocolate and pour the chocolate in. Something that shocked me was that the marshmallow package also came with the cocoa, so pour that in. Stir and stir until most of the chocolate has  dissolved in the milk, which take some time (maybe about 5-10 minutes) and leave some little bits of chocolate floating on the surface.

This will be very chocolately for people who love love LOVE lots of chocolate because I felt like it was too much for me. Be safe during the storm! And be excited since there is no school!
