My little pony bracelet kit

I love being creative and I also love My Little Pony so when I saw this bracelet kit in a toy store today, I knew I would have a lot of fun with it. When I got home I had a fun time putting the letters and charms on the bracelets ! I put on two of the bracelets and I wore them when I went out again later today. I love the way that they look plus I can change the charms anytime I want to !  I’m really glad I got this bracelet kit !

Spring cleaning 2019

Hello, my bucket list friends ! I just did a big springtime clean out and I’m excited to tell you all about it ! Here we go !

 

Spring cleaning 2019

I’t’s no secret that I love to shop and collect things but every once in a while it’s good to go through things and donate the things that you don’t want anymore. I probably don’t clean out as much as I should but out of the blue I got this strange urge to go through my books and donate the ones I didn’t want anymore. I took all my books and notebooks down from my closet and I went through them. I found many books that I had started reading and lost interest in so I donated them and hopped that someone who really wanted to read them would get them. After going through my books I began to go through other items. Last year I bought these huge boxes of My Little Pony toys from Ebay. ( You can read about it HERE) I did get a lot of cool toys from those boxes but I also doubles or even more of the same toy. There were also other toys that had been damaged from being played with . I went through the ponies and I donated the ones that I didn’t want to keep. I also went through my clothes and I got rid of things that didn’t fit me anymore as well as things I just didn’t enjoy wearing. I was on a roll I went though pretty much every area of my room donating things that I thought that other people would enjoy more then me. While I was cleaning I looked up at my DVD’s and I saw a movie that I really didn’t like anymore so with out hesitation I put it in the donation bag. It felt great to get rid of things that I didn’t want anymore. Doing a big clean out had a positive impact on my mental health. Things didn’t feel as out of control as before plus I knew I was going to being helping others by donating my items. Now, don’t get me wrong I still love to shop and collect but I also love to clean out and help others.

Fun with Yay Maker !

Hello , my bucket list friends ! Yesterday, my friend and I did a paint night by Yay Maker. for those of  you don’t know what a paint night or Yay maker is let me tell you. It’s basically an art class where everyone is making the same painting. An instructor leads the group in a step by painting class. It was a lot of fun and I can’t wait to tell you more ! Let’s get going !

 

Fun with Yay Maker !

My friend and I signed up for this class a while ago but when yesterday finally came, I thought we were going to miss it . There were two accidents on the highway and that made traffic awful ! I was so upset because I knew we were going to be late and I wasn’t sure if they would let us join the class but they did ! The only thing that happened because we were late is that we didn’t get to sit together but that was ok because our paintings were a surprise to each other ! Once I sat down it only took a little while for me to catch up to the rest of the class. The hardest part for me was getting the turtles head to look how it was supposed to. It was also ok if you didn’t follow the directions exactly. In the original painting the turtle had a big flower on it’s back but I ended up doing something different and it turned out really cool . There were also other people in the class including my friend who did something different with the design on the turtle’s back. Once I got over the stress of being late, I had a lot of fun letting my creativity flow !  It was cool to look around and other peoples creativity as well ! Overall it was a fun experience and I recommend doing it of you get a chance.

Things I love March 2019

TV show Buddy VS. Duff –  I love this show ! It’s a baking competition between two very famous bakers. It’s an exciting thrill ride of a contest between the cake boss and the ace of cakes. It’s awesome to watch two very talented bakers go head to head ! I highly recommend adding this show to your watch list !

My little Pony Ultimate Equestria collection – I wrote a blog post about how awesome this item is ( you can read it HERE )

Dumbo 2019 Movie review ( Spoiler Free)

Hello, my bucket list friends on Monday night I got to go see the remake of the movie Dumbo. I’m huge Disney fan and the previews for this remake looked really good. I was excited to see it and I’m so glad I did!

 

 

 

Dumbo 2019 Movie review ( Spoiler Free)

 

First Things first week days night are a great time to go see movies. We went to a nice theater where you have assigned seats and reclining chairs.  We went on Monday so it was not busy at all! There was no line for popcorn or the bathroom and it was just really nice not to be packed in with a bunch of other people. Now, let’s get to the movie ! The last time I watch the original Dumbo movie was probably sometime in the 90’s so I remember parts of it but not the whole thing but I do know that there was a cute new spin on my favorite scene from original movie. Hint it’s the scene with bubbles ! The main difference I noticed about the new movie is that there was a lot more focus on the circus performers and their lives and interactions with Dumbo instead of just focusing on Dumbo’s story. The actors in this movie were amazing everyone worked really well together . Of Course the CGI was mind blowing as well. It was hard to tell sometimes what was CGI and what wasn’t. The story was told very well and I really liked the well rounded plot and the flow of the story . The movie had a great overall pacing ,there were no lagging moments. It was a great adventure story and I recommend going to see it !

Christina Epperly MT ( My life as a massage therapist)

Hello, my bucket list friends ! I’ve talked a little bit about my job as a massage therapist but I thought that it would be a good time to give all of you a deeper look into my career.  I know people consider career changes all the time. If you happen to be considering a career in massage therapy , I hope this gives you some valuable information to help you make your decision.  Anyways let’s get to it !

 

Christina Epperly MT ( My life as a massage therapist)

I don’t think it matters what career you choose or if you go to the best school in your field ( like I did ) nothing can fully prepare you for a career until you’re there.  NHI (The school I went to) provided me with excellent information and hands on experience. NHI went to great lengths to prepare all of the students for the real world of massage and I’m very thankful for that but one thing I’ve learned in life is that experience is truly the best teacher. Now, that I’m officially working as a massage therapist I find myself learning more and more everyday . My co-workers have been very helpful in sharing information with me and I’ve been soaking it up like a sponge. I’ve also got to be honest my body is not used to having to do the amount of massages in a day that I’m doing now. I’ve been sore but I can also feel my body getting stronger ! I’ve been making sure to stretch and to stay hydrated to help myself be the best I can be. I’ve been getting some great feedback from my wonderful clients, I love being able to help people relax and reduce their stress. Giving massages can also be relaxing for the therapist. I like the relaxing music and the fact that I just have one thing to focus on it’s a break from the stress of the outside world.  A career as a massage therapist is challenging but rewarding. If you are interested in the topic of health and wellness and enjoy helping others you may want to look into a career as a massage therapist .  Thank you for reading !
