Blogmas day 2 – advent calendar 2020

Hello, my bucket list friends! I don’t know about you but I love advent calendars! I had advent calendars during childhood and I still love them today. This year I got one of the classic chocolate calendars from Trader Joe’s. I really like the art on the calendar this year. Are you doing an advent calendar this year?

Hawaii adventure

Hello,my bucket list friends! I just wrapped up a family vacation to Hawaii. It was my first time going to Hawaii and I can’t wait to tell you about the adventures I had. Let’s get to it!

After our layover in Seattle. My parents and I flew to Hawaii. My sister had arrived the day before so we met her at the hotel. That evening we walked to a nearby shopping center for dinner. We ate at a movie theater that was also an awesome restaurant. I had a really good veggie burger there. After dinner we went to this cute little market. They sold some really great souvenirs there. The next day we went to volcanoes national park I highly recommend visiting there if you ever find yourself on the big island. There were these really awesome steam vents that were sure to warm you up and fog up your glasses at the same time. While walking on certain trails at the park it felt like I was walking in the rainforest! Another one of my favorite things about this vacation was the pools at our hotel. I love going swimming so it was awesome having access to swimming pools especially an infinity pool. Our Hotel was also right on the beach. One day we rented snorkel gear and went snorkeling on the beach. We also went on a boat to do a Manta Ray snorkel/ dive. My mom and I went snorkeling my dad and sister went diving. It was so amazing to see the huge manta rays up close. Unfortunately I did get sea sick. Another activity I highly recommend is a kayak tour called flumin Kohala. It is a very relaxing ride. Overall it was a great and much needed vacation. Oh and I almost forgot ! I got to go on a coffee tour. It was awesome!

Seattle fun!

Hello,my bucket list friends ! I’m currently on vacation in Hawaii as I write this post. Before I got to Hawaii I had what I’m calling the best layover ever! When my parents and I arrived in Seattle we were unable to continue on to Hawaii due to their new travel requirements. We ended up spending the night in Seattle so we could have time to meet the new requirements. Since it was morning when we arrived in Seattle I saw it as an opportunity to explore the city and even cross some items off my bucket list.

Seattle fun!

Since we only had one day to explore Seattle, my mom and I decided to get a combination ticket that would let us explore two different attractions. The first attraction the we went to was the Space Needle. The views of the city from the Space Needle are simply amazing! It’s a great place to take pictures and it also has a really big gift shop! After exploring the Space Needle we went to the Chihuly garden and glass museum. The art here is very beautiful. I loved the colors and the creativity. I highly recommend both of these attractions if you visit Seattle.

While I was in Seattle I crossed three items off my bucket list! Here are the items I crossed off my list!

#230 Drink coffee in Seattle

#240 Go the Space Needle in Seattle

#285 Visit  Chihuly Garden and Glass

Jelly fish craft kit !

Hello, my bucket list friends ! Recently I did a very cute jelly fish craft kit. I’m excited to tell you more about it so let’s get to it!

Jelly fish craft kit !

I got this very cute jellyfish craft kit at Michael’s. when I decided to use it, I didn’t know if I would need glue or any other components to put the jellyfish together. I was happy to find out that  I didn’t need anything extra. The pieces had adhesive on them and I was able to put them together very easily. I loved doing this super simple craft kit! It was easy to put together and the jelly fish are super cute!

Peppermint popcorn?!?!!?

Hello, my bucket list friends! Yesterday I went to Whole Foods on my lunch break and I saw something I just had to try, white chocolate peppermint popcorn! This fun flavor is made by Skinny Pop. I Love peppermint. I also love trying new peppermint flavored snacks. So without any more delay let’s dive on in!

When I first opened the bag ,the popcorn looked normal but upon closer inspection. I did notice little red spots on the popcorn. As for the taste I’m just gonna say it ,I love this popcorn! It has a perfect salty sweet taste. It has the right amount of peppermint without being overpowering. As you can probably guess I do recommend trying this snack.

Self timer photoshoot challenge !

Hello, my bucket list friends! I love watching fun youtube videos and not too long ago one of my favorite video creators did a video where they took self timer photos. ( You can watch it HERE) I really liked the idea of taking self timer photos so I decided to try it out for myself. I can’t wait to show you the fun photos I took so let’s get to it!

Self timer photoshoot challenge !

For my first self timer photo shoot I decided to cover my bed with stuffed animals! I loved the way I set everything up but doing this photoshoot was harder then I thought it would be. I thought I had a tripod that would work with my phone but it turns out I didn’t so I put my phone on a stack of books. I had fun coming up with different poses but I did get tired of having to reset the timer. Even with those challenges I’m happy with the way the photos turned out. Here are three of my favorites!

For my next photoshoot I decided to head outside to my deck. The weather was perfect for photos and I had a fun time choosing different spots on my deck to take photos from. Here are three of my favorite outdoor photos!

For my last photoshoot I decided to take photos in the car. I had my neighbor’s dog with me that day so I included him in the photos . It was hard to get him to look at the camera but he is cute no matter what direction he is looking in ! Here are three of my favorites!

There you have it my self timer photoshoot challenge! Overall this was fun to do and definitely worth trying!
