So Long 2013...

I can't believe it's almost 2014! I need some new years resolutions! So I am really gonna try this year!

1. Read my Bible in a year
2. Blog more!
3. Do the water challenge (as in going without other drinks for a period of time not drinking gallons of water in one sitting!) *a little juice is okay though! but we never have any soooo yeah just a little every now and then*
4. Read 100 books in a year *listening to books can count too*
5. Get healthier! Go outside more, less computer time, etc etc!

I am really bad at resolutions so I really hope I will stick to it this year! So I will hopefully post ever so often and mark of what I have done.

I had a great Christmas! Lots of family time, good food, presents, and just celebrating Jesus' birthday!

My sister and I are watching Happy Feet right now, and at midnight we are going to set off fire works, drink punch, and I guess watch the ball drop! I am excited about 2014! I will become 15, get my driving permit, start 10th grade, and who knows what else!

So, so long 2013! You've been great. Hello 2014!

Oh My.

Christmas is in 13 days. THIRTEEN DAYS. I CAN'T BELIEVE THIS! Okay so here in Mississippi we are not known for our cold weather! November was kind of hot. And finally December hit us and it has been SO COLD. But not all the time cause we had a few hot days. So I have been throne off schedule and it does not feel like Christmas should be in 13 days! Although I am ecstatic about the Downton Abbey Christmas Special, and am on the edge of my seat loathing the thought of the Doctor Who Christmas Special (I LOVE YOU MATT SMITH). But I am excited about Christmas!

I love Christmas music, cold nights, long sleeve t shirts, fuzzy blankets, and just the happiness of Christmas time! I'm not gonna lie I do love getting presents, BUT Jesus' birthday is way more important to me ;)

Every Christmas Eve we have spent with my grandparents, but in this last year my Granddaddy died and my Grandmother went into the nursing home. So Christmas will be very different this year, but God has blessed us A LOT!

Tomorrow I am going with a group of friends to sing Christmas carols at a nursing home! I am super excited! Of course I am kind of nervous, but it's always easier to do this kind of stuff with close friends!

And our Christmas play is Sunday! I help out with our Children's Choir at church and got a part in the play! I am the self obsessed news reporter Silvia Bells! And I wear 6 inch high red and lepard print heels with a purple sweaterdress, and my hair gets bigger each scene thanks to huge and frazzled hair pieces! I will be a SIGHT! We are doing the play "The Christmas Shoe Tree" by Jeff Slaughter. I am also singing a solo in it called "Walk of Love" you can listen to a little of it here (just scroll down and press Walk of Love)It's really pretty!!

So yep! This has pretty  much been my CAN'T BELIEVE IT'S CHRISTMAS POST! Haha! What are some Christmas traditions that y'all have?

Have a very blessed day :)

A Christmas Day

Yesterday my little sister Beth and I had a wonderful day! Mama had to go to town and Daddy was going with her so we talked them into buying us a Christmas tree and we would stay home and clean! So we cleaned the house until it shined (almost. not really. but it looked good!) then the fun began!

I googled a recipe for baked ornaments and found one. Well we didn't have salt (actually today I found some. Tipical me.) so I googled again and found one to make that only called for corn starch and baking soda. So I tried it and failed. BUT I found several reasons why I did and tried again! And it went GREAT!

BUUUTTT It wasn't THAT simple! We didn't have any cookie cutters! So we printed out some Christmas shapes and went to town!!

 You can get the recipe here!

So after we put the ornaments in the oven we made a gingerbread house and got some lunch! Then decorated the ornaments!!!

After that we made cookies! (And found the cookie cutters! UGH!) And decorated the delicious sugar cookies!

Then Mama and Daddy brought back the tree and we had a fun time decorating it with our homemade ornaments, and eating Christmas cookies!!!

Oh My. My Geekiness is Showing!

I am afraid I am a geek. Okay who am I kidding?! I'm a geek through and through! Want to know why?

1. Lord of the Rings are my favorite books. I love them. End of story.

2. I love the Doctor (aka Doctor Who the TV shows)

3. I wear geeky T Shirts such as my knew "Just Who It" t shirt!

4. I would say I'm smart but I'm really not. Maybe average. Although my friends would say I am totally nuts when it comes to CFC's effecting the Ozone layer in which it makes a hole (which is called the "Ozone Hole") People who don't know anything about them think they need to be eliminated but if we do then the death rate will increase from notstarilizing stuff right, cooling in fridges, and fire controll! AND the "Ozone Hole" is SEASONAL! It's gonna come back! It was there before we started using CFC's! Okay.... sorry... I will get off my soap box. I'm pretty sure my best friends are embaressed now.

5. And the newest edition to my geekiness! *DRUMROLL* MYYYYYYYYYY


So what do you think? They are just for reading, computer, sewing, piano, etc! Just the up close stuff! So are y'all for or against geek glasses?

I have decided to stop blogging. I just don't really have time for it and I have just groan out of it. BUT it has been the best experience! I have "met" some really awesome people because of my blog! (like Alexandrea and Talia ;))*and much more but they are my closest* I have had so much fun sharing about my life, building some writing skills, sharing my Pinterest addiction, fangirling over Doctor Who, and all the nice comments! Just because I have decided to stop my blog for now doesn't mean it will always be gone! In a few years if I decide to start blogging again I will come back here! So I'm not deleting my site!

So thank y'all for the wonderful years! I have had soooo much fun! :)

In Christ Alone,
Emma Margaret <3

Ahhh it's been a good summer so far! But this weekend has been the best!

First it starts with a party with my besties, Josie and Macey! We made color bombs, and ate pizza, decorated t shirts, and made tutus! Than I got to spend the night! ALL IN PREPORATION FOR THE NEXT DAY :D The 5K Color Run to raise money for Josie's family! It was so much fun! We were sooo messy! And my legs were soooo sore from running 5K! After the 5K run I went swimming with Josie and Macey, than we tie died t shirts until dark and saw TONS of fire flies!!! Macey and I spent that night with Josie too than went to church the next morning! After church we sold spagetti plates to raise money to go to IYC next summer! Than we were auctioned off in groups to work. Our group (which was all girls *thumbs up*) was sold for about $230. OH YEAH ;D

Than I went home and took a 5 hour nap. It was awesome. Haha. Than Mama and I had to take my dog, Morgan to the 24 hour vets office at 10PM because he was bleeding D: But he is okay and just has a bad bladder infection. We got home at 2AM.

So I had a very sleep deprived, fun, with new experiences, lots of laughs, and bestie time filled weekend! :D

I am Sorry for my Lack of Presence

'Ello! Like I have stated above I am extremely sorry for my lack of presence! I suppose I have had time, but there have been other things that I have chosen to occupy my time with. For example I have been spending lengthy periods of time indulging in books such as "The Lord of The Rings". It is now a very beloved series of books! Though the movies are far from flawless they are wonderful too. The books are about an enthralling adventure which takes place in Middle Earth. I highly recommend it! I personally believe it is absurd to call yourself an admirer of LOTR and not read the books!

But back to how I have been absent I truly am sorry and hope to do better. Although it might stay this way for I have been finding joy in many other things than spending my time on the computer. I do love my blog, but it will not be first in priorities. I do hope y'all will understand :)

If y'all are curious as to why I am expanding my vocabulary it is simply because I do have a fondness for words that aren't used as much as they should be used. LOTR uses so many words that no men use in these modern days. There are many words I haven't the foggiest notion of what they mean (for instance I have a friend who uses many words I haven't ever heard of!), but maybe I will comprehend some more words.

Well I am off for I have the Doctor Who season finally tonight (which I am rather depressed about)  to watch.

So long dear friends!

Emma Margaret

*Everyone should make a post using as many big words as possible! It's so fun!*

What to do with SPAMMERS?!

Do y'all remember the post I did called "Little Things link up?" Well y'all probably don't because it didn't go well with my readers but was a big hit with the spammers! I literally have 150 spam comments on that post! And getting more everyday! EVEN THOUGH IT WAS WRITTEN MONTHS AGO!!!


Okay I have gotten all that out *sigh of relief*

Now! What? Where have I been?? Oh well that is a long story!

It has been a sad month and 4 people I loved have died, and my best friend is in the hospital in ICU. So as you can see I had a good reason for my lack of blogging!

I am raising money for my friend in the hospital (Josie <3) and if you would like to help go to my etsy shop thegracefulbird.etsy.com and buy a bracelet! (let me know what colors you want and I make you a listing) They are  $2 each and for a great cause!

So yep! Spam comments and bracelet making has been my month. Even though it is a hard month I am extremely blessed!

In Christ,

Galaxy Nails Tutorial (to get ready for the new Doctor Who episodes!)

I am super excited about the new Doctor Who episode coming out this weekend so I have my nails ready and thought I would share my tutorial! 

The polishes I used were Pure Ice : SCANDAL *a very dark purple* and FRENCH KISS *a dark royal blue*//Art Deco : black // L.A. Colors : gold sparkles 

What I did was took scandal and covered almost all my nail. Then took French Kiss and the black and put a few dots here and there. Then for the messy part! Smudge the polishes togeather so you get these parts of blue and purple and black. After this dries add gold sparkles for the starts. You can always use something else but gold sparkles looked really nice on these.

If I were better at nail polish I would have added a TARDIS but I did not tackle that this time ;) 

Tell me if you try this! Also please leave suggestions!!

In Christ,
Emma Margaret

Eye Make Up Tutorial : Layered

This is a very simple eye makeup tutorial especially helpful for beginners! There are tons of possibilities for this and hope y'all try it!

What you will need:
All you need is your eye shadow color pallet, eye liner, and mascara.

what I used ^                end result ^

I used:
e.l.f. eye shadow "Butternut", Great Lash clear mascara by Maybelline, and e.l.f. eye liner "Coffee"

Take you eye shadow pallet and start with the darkest color. My pallet had four colors. So take your darkest color and start on the lid. Then take the next darkest color and go up and repeat until satisfide with your look! Line your eye right under your bottom eye lashes and apply mascara to top and bottom lashes!

You can do this with any color pallet of your choice! This is great for just going out or something fancier!

Tell me if you try this! Hope you enjoyed!

In Christ,

Naturally Beautiful

I thought I would do a post about natural beauty tips and tricks and may I just say I have had so much fun! So here we go! Here are a few things I tried!!!

Natural Hair Lightener *tried*

What you need is

Cinnamon, conditioner (I used stay in but either will work!), and honey! (a little Olive Oil is optional)

I did not use an exact amount and don't really know how much I used! Just eyeball it and make enough to cover all your hair! 

Take the mixture and you might want to put your hair in layers so that everything will be equally coated! 

Leave in over night and wash out in the morning! This will lighten your hair and make it feel great! 

This works best for brunets!
*Source You Tube*

Lemon Highlights

You will need

2 lemons, olive oil, conditioner, and small spray bottle!

Juice your lemons and add a little olive oil. Add about 2 squirts of conditioner. Put in spritz bottle and put in hair! Play out in the sun for a few hours, wash it out and there you have it! It brings out your natural highlights! 

*source you tube*

Lip Scrub

What you need is

Small container, honey, sugar, and Vaseline!

However much honey you put in this put about half that amount of vaseline then add sugar depending on how hard you want your scrub. 

Scrub on lips, wipe off, add chap stick! This is great for when you don't want to put on lip stick but want your lips looking better than normal! This makes your lips smooth and gives them a flawless look! 

*source Pinterest*

Ice Facial 

I found on pinterest that you can use 2 ice cubes on your face to help with 
Besides giving your face a dewy, glowing look, the frosty cubes will help to smooth your complexion by combatting fat cells, ease wrinkles, fight acne, and promote blood circulation that will help heal blemishes.

So I tried this with one cube IT WAS REALLY HARD but it felt really good after it was done!

Here are some other tips that I found to be helpful!

Hope you enjoyed this and hopefully I will do more soon!!

In Christ,

Product Review: Joyeux Boutique: old love letters hair clip

Hey! Today I will be reviewing this lovely clip from the Joyeux Boutique! First I want to say thank you to Blythe for letting me review this! Now on to the review!!!!!

Isn't it lovely?

This is a simple but lovely clip that has burnt edges in a layered, tan, flower with a pearl in the middle! It goes with a lot and here are a few ways to wear it that I thought of!

1. Of course your hair! Clips can go with sooo many hair styles! Half ups, buns, pony tails, and taking a little hair from the front and pinning it back like I normally do!

2. Clip it to a scarf! Just take a plain scarf and clip it to it! It dresses it up and adds some spice to your outfit ;)

3. Clip it to... anything! If you have a small bag or a bracelet or a headband go ahead and try it!

Now! Everyone go check out the shop and buy something! It is all super affordable quality items that will add something to any out fit!
