Taste Testing Random Foods Part 2

Hey cupcakes! Not too long ago I decided to do a post on taste testing random foods... It seemed like you guys really enjoyed the first one, so I am back today with another random taste test!!!!  :) I hope you enjoy this post! <3

1. Chicken and Dumplings from Cracker Barrel
I recently found myself in Cracker Barrel and instead of getting the usual (which is breakfast foods YUM!) I opted to try the famous Chicken and Dumplings... They were so tasty!!!! The chicken was cooked perfectly, and the dumplings had a noodle like consistency. The gravy was super yummy and pulled the whole dish together! This meal also came with two sides, so the mac and cheese and mashed potatoes were super delicious add ons. :P I really recommend this meal!

2. Horehound Candy Stick
After eating at Cracker Barrel I looked around the cute little store they have in the restaurant. I'm sure many of you guys do the same thing! :) They had a whole bunch of candy sticks there that were 8 for $1, so I decided to get a few. I saw a dark brown candy stick that was Horehound flavor.....and I just had to get it! I have never ever heard of anything Horehound flavored, and it looked like it might taste good. Boy was I wrong! NEVER eat anything Horehound flavored.... The only way I can describe it was that it tasted like bitter dirt. The internet says the Horehound plant is a bitter mint but there is NO trace of mint. It was awful! Never try Horehound! 

3. Watermelon Sour Patch Kid Slurpee
So if you read my last taste test post, you would have seen my excited review about watermelon Sour Patch Kids.... so you can probably guess how excited I was when they came out with a watermelon Sour Patch Kids Slurpee!!! :D I rushed over to my closest 7-11 to try it... And it was good, but not amazing like I had hoped. :/ As I mentioned in my taste test of the regular candy, the watermelon ones aren't as sour as the plain Sour Patch Kids... But in the Slurpee they made it super sour. The flavor was pretty close, and I really enjoyed the drink for the first few sips, but then it just got too sour! I couldn't even finish it... I would still recommend you try it though, because you might enjoy the sour! <3

4. Tim Horton's Frozen Hot Chocolate
After seeing this new specialty drink advertised, my friend got one and raved about it for like a week. So of course I had to try it! :P It was around $2.60ish and was a decent size, and I actually really enjoyed it! I was expecting it to be a bland cold chocolate flavor, but it really tasted more like a chocolate shake than hot cocoa. They put chocolate whipped cream on top and chocolate drizzle which was super duper yummy! I would totally recommend this drink for the hot summer months! :)

I hope you enjoyed this random taste test post! :D Comment below with foods and drinks you would like me to try!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Have a great day! :)

Movie Review: Meet the Robinsons

Release date: March 30th, 2007

Rating: G
Hey cupcakes! I know this movie did not come out recently, but I actually just watched it for the first time last weekend (I know, I should have watched it wayyyyy sooner)!!! As many of you know, I am a huge fan of Disney movies. I had high expectations for this movie and was not disappointed! This movie is so heartwarming...  The idea of family and fitting in are huge factors in this movie, and I really enjoyed the messages Disney was portraying. :) It was also quite funny at times to the point where I would burst out laughing ;) So, comedy is big too! :P Plus, THERE IS A FREAKING DINOSAUR!
He made the movie even better ;) The only critique I have is the main villain (bowler hat guy... DUH DUH DUHHH) is a tad too creepy for a child...... Just saying.
Danggggg look at those legs! ;)
He screams pedophile to me....... Anyways, I think this movie is great for kids and adults alike so if you haven't seen it, I recommend watching! <3

What did you think about Meet the Robinsons? Comment below and don't forget to keep moving forward! :D

The App That Changed My Life....

Hey cupcakes! Today I will be writing a post about an app I recently discovered that has changed my whole life..... GIF KEYBOARD! I have an iPhone 6 and discovered this app on the App Store, but I believe you can also get it on other devices. :) Which is great because it is amazinggg!

This app is exactly what it sounds like: a gif keyboard! Just like emoticons, you add this keyboard to your other keyboards (so I have three: the regular keyboard, the emoticon one, and the gif one)... Then you can send gifs on any text message you would like! IT IS AWESOME!
If you couldn't tell from my constant gifs on this blog, I find them super funny and cute! The Gif Keyboard app has thousands of gifs.... Which means you can find one for any subject, situation, etc. :P I personally enjoy the Harry Potter and Disney gifs ;) Here are two of my favorites:

I would show you more but you'll have to download the app and see for yourself ;)

I really recommend you download this app! It doesn't slow down your phone or anything like that, and it is free!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Hurry and experience the greatness!!!!

What do you think about this app? :) Comment below!!!

*Disclaimer: I was NOT paid to make this post, I just really enjoy this app :) *

Even though those days have come to an end, I have created the ultimate back to school essentials list for success in high school :) If you want to know how to succeed, stick around!!!! I hope you enjoy! :)

1. Backpack - This might seem like a DUH, but I have seen so many high schoolers who don't have a backpack.... Get one! I recommend the High Sierra Swerve backpacks :)

5. Loose leaf paper - This is helpful alllllllll the time!

6. Pencils - Pencils are a must! Even if you don't get pens, you have to have pencils!

7. Pencil case - To store your pencils in of course ;)

5 Ways to Spruce Up a Basic Ponytail

Hey cupcakes! As the summer months come to an end, school is just around the corner! Many of you may look for the quickest way to fix your hair in the morning, which will lead you to the famous ponytail!! Now if you are like me, you won't want to wear the same hairstyle everyday.... Or take a ton of precious sleep time to style your hair because...
So here are some ways to spruce up that basic ponytail!!! :D ENJOY!

1. Add a bow - Um, bows make everything and anything super chic and cute!

2. Braid it - Put your hair into a ponytail and then braid it! It is the cross between a braid and a ponytail and it is super duper cute!

3. Style it - If you have extra time in the morning, you can style your ponytail to create a look that is casual but oh so stylish! Crimp it, curl it, straighten it, wave it, etc!

4. Flip it inwards - After your hair is in ponytail, split the hair and flip inwards.... Flawless! :)

5. Wrap it - Use a small strand of the pony to cover the elastic band and secure with a bobby pin! Takes about three seconds and looks really good! <3

I hope you enjoyed this post! What are your favorite ways to spruce up a ponytail???? Comment below!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Makeup Essentials Every Girl Should Have!

Hey cupcakes! :) Today I will be doing a post about makeup! I feel like I haven't done a makeup post in a long time! This post will be a list of all the makeup products every girl should have in her makeup collection :) Whether you have a ton more makeup or just these essentials, you will still look fabulous and gorgeous! Let's get started!

Every girl should have these makeup products:  

1. A good mascara - Even if you only use mascara on your eye makeup, your eyes will still be emphasized and look super pretty!
2. Eyeliner - Even if you only wear this on special occasions, it is a must!
3. An eyeshadow palette - I recommend a palette made especially for your eye color :) This will make them stand out!
4. A brow pencil - Filling in your brows is something that you can't skip!!!!
5. Concealer - A red spot or too looks so much better covered up! :P
6. Foundation - Even if you only wear foundation occasionally (like me heehee) you should have it handy! I personally enjoy wearing just concealer and powder on a daily basis....
7. Powder - Gotta keep that shine away!
8. Blush/bronzer palette - This is recommended but isn't really essential.... But it makes you look super flawless ;)
9. Lip balm - Keep away those dry lips!
10. Lip Gloss - Even if you don't have lipstick, lip gloss should do the trick!!!!

11. Brushes - Gotta apply the makeup somehow! :P To see my top 5 brushes, check out my past post here: link

I hope you guys enjoyed!!!!!! These products are the bare minimum, so of course you can add as many other products to your collection as you see fit! :)

What other products do you like to use? Comment below! <3

Recipe: White Chocolate Craisin Cookies

 Oatmeal Cran Cookies

Hey cupcakes! Today I have another recipe post for you guys! I found this recipe on the back of a bag of Craisins (dried cranberries) and decided to try it out..... and it is super delicious!

-2/3 cup Ocean Spray® Craisins® Original Dried Cranberries
-2/3 cup white or semi-sweet chocolate chunks or chips

1. Preheat oven to 375ºF.

2. Using an electric mixer, beat butter (or margarine) and sugar together in a medium mixing bowl until light and fluffy.

3. Add eggs, mixing well.

4. Combine oats, flour, baking soda and salt in a separate mixing bowl. Add to butter mixture in several additions, mixing well after each addition.

5. Stir in dried cranberries and chocolate chunks.

6. Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on wire rack.

My 5 Favorite Clothing Staples

Hey cupcakes! I recently did a guest post on the lovely Anon Girl blog! You can go to that blog to read my post, or continue reading here! Don't forget to follow both of our blogs!!!!!!!! I did this post to show you guys my top five favorite pieces of clothing in my closet! These five articles of clothing are pieces I cannot live without! Let's get started :)

1. V-neck tee: I am obsessed with plain (or printed) v-neck tees! I own close to twenty different colors, and they can be worn on pretty much any occasion! They are easy to throw on and super cute :)
2. Dressy tank top: After summer is coming to an end, I always raid clearance sections for cute (and cheap!) dressier tank tops. These are amazing because they can be worn as is in the summer, or they can paired with a cardigan during the colder months! I own tons and tons of cute tank tops and wear them allllll the time ;)
3. Cardigan: Cardigans are a must! Black, white, multi-colored, any cardigan is great to have! They can be paired with the tank tops mentioned above and complete almost every outfit for any season!!!!! Go invest in a few cardigans, and you will not regret it!
4. Skinny jeans: A pair of skinny jeans is a must because they can be dressed up or down and look super trendy and cute! I love me some good skinny jeans ;) 
5. Dress: One simple dress is a MUST in any girl's closet. It can be worn casually or dressed up and is a staple piece for sure!!! I personally enjoy a LND (Little Navy Dress haha) and own quite a few perfect dresses for any occasion :) 

I hope you enjoyed this guest post!!!! Have a great day!!!! :)
