How to stay warm, cozy (and hip!) in winter

depositphotos_117224796-stock-illustration-hello-handdrawn-word-letteryng-good-e1511962177596.jpg Welcome back to my corner of the web!

As you all know it’s getting colder outside (unless you live on the equator-if so chill like a boss and put those jazzy shades on) We are saying Goodbye to Fall and Hello to Winter.

It’s amazing how God created the Earth to have seasons, and when the seasons change the Earth reacts a certain way depending on where you live. If you live in Texas, the weather doesn’t change much and you would hardly ever get snow, But if you live in Ohio you might have mild winters and damp spring rains.

So if it gets chillier where you live, around winter, then here are some tips that might help you stay warm.

I love to drink Tea when it is cold outside. Drinking Tea is relaxing and not addictive like coffee. I recommend Celestial Seasonings, their tea flavors range from fruity blueberry- to refreshing peppermint.

Get a cute mug and your ready to go!

kniegyufdscx.pngKnit gloves are cute and they keep you warm, they aren’t as thick as regular gloves so they are great for when you are out and about. I recommend getting a color that goes with everything. Neutral colors such as; Grey, Black and White will probably go with any outfit you wear and if your blogging, while your out and about get some touch-screen safe gloves.

Knit Beanies are also super cute and you can mix and match different styles!

This cat ear beanie is ADORABLE and it will keep you warm all season!

I hope these tips help you!

img_3664-2Welcome back to my blog! I haven’t posted at all this month because I was doing NaNoWriMo! Now I have gotten to my goal and I will be back in the blogging world!

My story didn’t really turn out how I planned it would, actually I didn’t plan at all to be honest. This year we were pretty busy and I didn’t have enough time to plan in October. So when November started, I rushed into the story. By the time I was halfway through the month I realized my story made no sense, but It was too late to start over. I think that my story had a great concept, but I didn’t plan enough to make my story turn out great. I will probably rewrite the story sometime next year.

Overall I had a lot of fun testing my writing abilities. The story I wrote was in a different style. It was in verse, meaning that each chapter was in poetry. I really loved getting to know my character. I can’t wait to try again to craft her story.

The Friendship Code by  Stacia Deutsch

Image result for The Friendship Code (Girls Who Code #1)

via Amazon

Sypnosis;                                                                                                                                               Loops, variables, input/output – Lucy can’t wait to get started with the new coding club at school. Finally, an after-school activity that she’s really interested in. But Lucy’s excitement turns to disappointment when she’s put into a workgroup with girls she barely knows. All she wanted to do was make an app that she believes will help someone very special to her.

Suddenly, Lucy begins to get cryptic coding messages and needs some help translating them. She soon discovers that coding – and friendship – takes time, dedication, and some laughs!

I love to code. I think it’s a fun thing to learn. I mainly use Scratch but I have used Python before with the help from my younger brothers. This seems like a sweet middle-grade series. I am looking forward to reading this!

 

Renegades by Marissa Meyer

Synopsis;                                                                                                                                                    The Renegades are a syndicate of prodigies―humans with extraordinary abilities―who emerged from the ruins of a crumbled society and established peace and order where chaos reigned. As champions of justice, they remain a symbol of hope and courage to everyone…except the villains they once overthrew.  

Nova has a reason to hate the Renegades, and she is on a mission for vengeance. As she gets closer to her target, she meets Adrian, a Renegade boy who believes in justice―and in Nova. But Nova’s allegiance is to the villains who have the power to end them both.

I have been waiting for this book for months! I believe it will be coming out in November- which is next month! I am a little disappointed that Marissa Meyer won’t be continuing the Lunar Chronicles Series but I am super-duper excited for Renegades.

Wires and Nerve, Volume 2 by Marissa Meyer

34930815

Synopsis;                                                                                                                                                    Iko – an audacious android and best friend to the Lunar Queen Cinder – has been tasked with hunting down Alpha Lysander Steele, the leader of a rogue band of bioengineered wolf-soldiers who threaten to undo the tenuous peace agreement between Earth and Luna. Unless Cinder can reverse the mutations that were forced on them years before, Steele and his soldiers plan to satisfy their monstrous appetites with a massacre of the innocent people of Earth.

I am so happy that Iko got her own series! I can’t  wait to see what she has in store. I’m so excited for this to come out!

Click’d by Tamara Ireland Stone

33785212
via Goodreads
Synopsis;
Allie Navarro can’t wait to show her best friends the app she built at CodeGirls summer camp. CLICK’D pairs users based on common interests and sends them on a fun (and occasionally rule-breaking) scavenger hunt to find each other. And it’s a hit. By the second day of school, everyone is talking about CLICK’D.

Watching her app go viral is amazing. Leaderboards are filling up! Everyone’s making new friends. And with all the data Allie is collecting, she has an even better shot at beating her archenemy, Nathan, at the upcoming youth coding competition. But when Allie discovers a glitch that threatens to expose everyone’s secrets, she has to figure out how to make things right, even if that means sharing the computer lab with Nathan. Can Allie fix her app, stop it from doing any more damage, and win back the friends it hurt-all before she steps on stage to present CLICK’D to the judges?

I usually try not to read modern/realistic middle school fiction, but this sounded really cool. I mean a girl who codes a viral app? I definitely am going to read it. I hope that this breaks away from the Typical Middle-School book settings and middle-school drama, you know crushes, mean girls, fitting in, stuff like that’

I am hoping that this book will be different. I really like how authors are writing more steam related books for girls!

 

Okie Dokie next book *tries to be like those cool bloggers*

The Crown by Keira Cass

Synopsis

 When Eadlyn became the first princess of Illéa to hold her own Selection, she didn’t think she would fall in love with any of her thirty-five suitors. She spent the first few weeks of the competition counting down the days until she could send them all home. But as events at the palace force Eadlyn even further into the spotlight, she realizes that she might not be content remaining alone.

Eadlyn still isn’t sure she’ll find the fairytale ending her parents did twenty years ago. But sometimes the heart has a way of surprising you…and soon Eadlyn must make a choice that feels more impossible—and more important—than she ever imagined. 

I was going to read the whole Selection series, but I realized that I would never be able to read all the books on my TBR list if I read the whole series this month. So I decided that I will read the book about America’s daughter, Eadlyn

 

All’s Faire in Middle School by Victoria Jamieson

33517044

Synopsis;

Eleven-year-old Imogene (Impy) has grown up with two parents working at the Renaissance Faire, and she’s eager to begin her own training as a squire. First, though, she’ll need to prove her bravery. Luckily Impy has just the quest in mind–she’ll go to public school after a life of being homeschooled! But it’s not easy to act like a noble knight-in-training in middle school. Impy falls in with a group of girls who seem really nice (until they don’t) and starts to be embarrassed of her thrift shop apparel, her family’s unusual lifestyle, and their small, messy apartment. Impy has always thought of herself as a heroic knight, but when she does something really mean in order to fit in, she begins to wonder whether she might be more of a dragon after all.

I am not sure how this book is going to turn out. I try to avoid books that deal with school because of all the Drama, but I feel like this might turn out differently. I really like how this is about a homeschooled girl, I just wish that people wrote more books about homeschooled kids that stay homeschooled.

The Inquisitor’s Tale by Adam Gidwitz

29358517
Via Goodreads

Synopsis;

1242. On a dark night, travelers from across France cross paths at an inn and begin to tell stories of three children. Their adventures take them on a chase through France: they are taken captive by knights, sit alongside a king, and save the land from a farting dragon. On the run to escape prejudice and persecution and save precious and holy texts from being burned, their quest drives them forward to a final showdown at Mont Saint-Michel, where all will come to question if these children can perform the miracles of saints. Join William, an oblate on a mission from his monastery; Jacob, a Jewish boy who has fled his burning village; and Jeanne, a peasant girl who hides her prophetic visions. They are accompanied by Jeanne’s loyal greyhound, Gwenforte . . . recently brought back from the dead. Told in multiple voices, in a style reminiscent of The Canterbury Tales, our narrator collects their stories and the saga of these three unlikely allies begins to come together.

 

I already started reading this book and I enjoyed it so far. It’s not my favorite book and I don’t agree with everything in it but I really enjoy the authors writing style. I am unaware if this book has magic in it yet. I think that having powers is not the same as doing magic spells but it depends on the book. If you guys get what I am trying to say then Excellent- but if you don’t then go get a cup of tea and keep reading.

If you guys get what I am trying to say then Excellent- but if you don’t then go get a cup of tea and keep reading. Otherwise, the book is great so far, I love the historical feel.
