Henna!


I got some Henna done by my aunt in India! Yes Yes, it tickles and is freezing when it touches your skin but if you keep it on long enough the color is a bright maroon and BEAUTIFUL!

An Abundance of Katherines


An Abundance of Katherines is another book by John Green. 
Here is the summary from his website:
When it comes to relationships, everyone has a type. Colin           
Singleton’s type is girls named Katherine. He has dated–and been dumped by–19 Katherines. In the wake of The K-19 Debacle, Colin–an anagram-obsessed washed-up child prodigy–heads out on a road trip with his overweight, Judge Judy-  loving friend Hassan. With 10,000 dollars in his pocket and a feral hog on his trail, Colin is on a mission to prove a mathematical theorem he  hopes  will predict the future of any
relationship (and conceivably win the girl).
Review: An Abundance of Katherines is so far my favorite John Green book. Its funny and unique. I loved how there are footnotes at the bottom of the pages. There are some mathematical formulas, references, and diagrams, but you don't need to understand them to enjoy the book. The stories of the Katherines were a little confusing to me, but later I understood them.

Paper Towns


Paper Towns is a novel by John Green (The Fault in Our Stars; Looking for Alaska). Here is a summary that hopefully doesn't ruin the plot:

 A boy is in love with his neighbour who is popular at school. She runs away and leaves him clues to find her. (that's my summary)
Here's a summary from John Green's website:
Quentin Jacobsen has spent a lifetime loving the magnificently adventurous Margo Roth Spiegelman from afar. So when she cracks open a window and climbs back into his life–dressed like a ninja and summoning him for an ingenious campaign of revenge–he follows.
After their all-nighter ends and a new day breaks, Q arrives at school to discover that Margo, always an enigma, has now become a mystery. But Q soon learns that there are clues–and they’re for him. Urged down a disconnected path, the closer he gets, the less Q sees of the girl he thought he knew.

Review:
I thought it was a pretty good book. It got a little dull at times, but was excellent. Also, it gets really funny near the endingish. The book is a little serious. Personally, I thought it ended a little abruptly because I was expecting more, but it was nice.

Wall Decor For Less

Picture

So for this wall it cost about $6-7. The birds actually came in an 8 piece set so it cost about $4-5 dollars and then the FAMILY sticker was only for 97¢! This was all from Walmart in their wall sticker area near all the hardware supplies. Happy Decorating!

Wall Decor with Pictures




I was casually redecorating my room and accidentally ended up on my phone instead. While browsing Pinterest I saw this creative idea and gave it a go! I tried to put a lot of old pictures because they were a lot with my Grandpa who passed away last December :( (The reason I didn't post a lot) Just a tip for picture picking..Use pictures with people close to you!
