You can always add extra ingredients if you like, but if you want it to turn out the way mine did, then I recommend following the recipe!

ʕ•̫͡•ʕ•̫͡•ʔ•̫͡•ʔ•̫͡•ʕ•̫͡•ʔ•̫͡•ʕ•̫͡•ʕ•̫͡•ʔ•̫͡•ʔ•̫͡•ʕ•̫͡•ʔ•̫͡•ʔʕ•̫͡•ʕ•̫͡•ʔ•̫͡•ʔ•̫͡•ʕ•̫͡•ʔ•̫͡•ʕ•̫͡•ʕ•̫͡•ʔ•̫͡•ʔ•̫͡•ʕ•̫͡•ʔ•̫͡•ʔʕ•̫͡•ʕ•̫͡•ʔ•̫͡•ʔ•̫͡•ʕ•̫͡•ʔ•̫͡•ʕ•̫͡•ʕ•̫͡•ʔ•̫͡•ʔ•̫͡•ʕ•̫͡•ʔ

First of all, we are going to put the raspberries in the blender, I used half of the bag, you can use more or less, depending on the flavor and texture you want.

Next, I will add 1/3 of a banana as a natural sweetener. You can add more or less, I recommend adding just a teensy bit or the smoothie will taste more like a banana smoothie than a raspberry smoothie :D!

Next, I will add a teaspoon of Honey, you can add as much or as less as you want to depend on how sweet you want your smoothie to be! I am also adding a cup of water.

Now its time for the fun part! BLENDING THE FRUIT TOGETHER!!!!

Remeber to put the cap on! Don’t want to make a mess! You can blend it for as long as you want, depending on how you want the texture to be.

After blending it for some time it should look like this! When it gets to your desired texture, stop the blender and pour into a mug, jar, or even a SAUCER!

Heya! Welcome back to my tiny corner of the web! I haven’t been posting as much but don’t worry my friends, my blog is NOT dead! I shall be posting a lot more. I am going to be sharing some excerpts from my NaNoWriMo story and some poetry.

Wanting

want to know something,

I want to understand.

I want to take the darkness,

and make it bright again.

I want my every whisper,

to fill up every street.

I want to find the lost,

and help them find,

the unknown future,

they can’t see.

Seeking

When you’re looking for something,

searching with all your heart.

But it stays hidden away.

You can never find it.

Its lost,

forever gone.

It fades away from you,

into the misty air.

Into the deep blue sky.

The lead of my pencil lifts off the paper. Its raining, droplets falling from the sky and splashing onto the window, making everything blurry. I don’t want it to be blurry. I want to see. I want to see the unknown before it fades away…before it’s forever gone.

This is one of my favorite excerpts!

anyways…

Here is another excerpt from my book

What If

When I fall into a dream I often chase the stars. I do what I can not obtain in real life. I wish reality could be more fantastical. I ponder about the things that are impossible. What if I could soar like an eagle? What if I could paint the sky? What if I could hold every star and constellation until I die. What If my aspirations came true? What if every question I ask can be answered the way I want it too.

I have many goals in my life, but the one I want to accomplish the most is to find out who gave me that rock.

But…

There are so many buts. Something is always in the way, blocking me from succeeding. And worst of all, they are all lies. Lies I am telling myself.

I’m not good enough, I am weak, What if I fail? 

Over and over again, each one taking over my brain and preventing me from doing what I love and enjoy. Preventing me from getting to the finish line.

What if I could get to that never-ending finish line…

What if?

il_fullxfull.1076156844_dsphMERRY CHRISTMAS!!!

I am really excited about this post! I have some big news that I can’t wait to share!

Let’s Start off with blog updates!

1Elysian Artiste has hit 111 followers!!!!

Image result for yayyyy gif

I just want to thank you all so much! This means a lot to me and I am really grateful for all of the amazing people I’ve met on WordPress! Thanks so much!

d Stats Are BOOMING!

Elysian Artiste is getting 33 views every two hours, every day. I am not sure if that is a lot or a little but I am still thankful! Elysian Artiste has gone from a few views a day, to 33 views hourly each day, that is amazing!

 

d (1)Starting  Elysian Artiste has helped me find the true me.

I have started many blogs about my various interests, Most of the things I was blogging about, wasn’t really what I truly loved, It was just popular things others were blogging about, such as American Girl Dolls and Beanie Boos. I didn’t get that far and I felt as if I was pretending to truly love those items. I realized that just because other girls wrote about their dolls and got a lot of visitors, comments, likes, etc didn’t mean that was what I should do.  So I started Elysian Artiste and it was one of the best choices I ever made. I learned that being yourself and doing what you love, is better than pretending to be someone else. I posted my stories, art, and photography, because that was me, and that is what I love to do!

big news

My parents let me get a youtube channel! I am super duper excited and I can’t wait!

What I got for Christmas

So I didn’t get a lot of items for Christmas, but my parents gave me more opportunities and privileges.

1 A YOUTUBE CHANNEL

I am so thankful! I have always wanted a youtube channel! Every time I was unboxing something or drawing or something like that I would record myself and talk to my “so-called’ subscribers. Now I finally have one! I am so happy! I have been prepping for this channel for years and I am excited to make it a real channel!

dA WRECK THIS JOURNAL

For countless years, I have been watching people wreck these journals, and I always thought that they were so COOOOOL! It literally was the only thing I watched for a while. After a few months of watching the videos, I kind of stopped because I got interested in some other things but I still wanted one. So in November, I started to look at the videos some more and I knew I really wanted and I thought it was to help me unleash my creative juices, even more, inspire me to think out of the box.

So basically, long story short, I got one! I actually just decorated the cover today and I love it! I am going to be making a series of posts and Videos about the journal and show you my progress!

//10 reasons why you should smile more often//

10

il_fullxfull.1076156844_dsphWelcome back to my corner of the web!

Today I am going to talk about smiling.

Image result for quotes about smiling     Image result for quotes about smiling

 

A smile is a simple expression that can not only make you feel happier, but it can also make the world a happier and brighter place. Today I am going to share ten reasons why you should smile more often and how smiling can help others around you.

1Smiling is contagious.

Smiling is very contagious, whenever I see someone smile, I always feel the urge to smile back at them. When I smile at others, most of the time they smile back. When you smile at someone, it gives them a surge of joy and makes them feel happier.

dIt boosts your immune system: Smiling really can improve your physical health, too. Your body is more relaxed when you smile, which contributes to good health and a stronger immune system.

 

d (1)Smiling Relieves Stress

Stress can permeate our entire being, and can really show up in our faces. Smiling not only helps to prevent us from looking tired, worn down, and overwhelmed but can actually help reduce stress. Believe it or not, smiling can reduce stress even if you don’t feel like smiling or even know that you’re smiling! When you are stressed, take the time to put on a smile. You and those around you will reap the benefits.

d (9)Smiling helps you get over your mistakes.

The next time you make a mistake, smile, and laugh it off. Its much better than getting angry with yourself and it helps you stay in a positive mind zone.

d-2.pngIt’s easier to smile than to frown: Scientists have discovered that your body has to work harder and use more muscles to frown than it does to smile.

 

d (4)

Smiling builds relationships. It bridges the gaps between us:                                                 When you smile it draws others closer to you and it’s easier to make friends. No one wants to sit next to someone who is glaring at them. The next time you see someone, turn that frown upside down!

 

d-5.png

Smiling improves your chance of success. People who smile more think better, are positive, are more likely to tackle new goals and have more opportunities to advance than those who don’t. In short, that often leads to more success.

d-6.png

Smiling helps to show you know God is in charge. We all face troubles in this world, but even in the face of loss and tragedy we can have hope. (1 Thess 4:13) Choosing to smile helps remind you, and others, that your God is big enough to handle it all.

d (7).pngSmiling encourages others.

When you smile, it in encourages others to do their best. It’s like saying “You’ve got this!” It makes them feel important and special, and no matter what they are going through it always makes them feel better.

d-8-e1513617222252.pngSmiling is beautiful

You could be the most beautiful person in the world, but if you’re not wearing a smile, its nothing. Smiling is more attractive than makeup and pretty clothes. A smile is beautiful, loving, caring, kind, tender, forgiving, encouraging and amazing.

Final Thoughts.png

No matter who you are, what you look like, where you are, remember that you are loved by a king, so keep on smiling and wearing your invisible crown because you are beautiful and wonderful and AWESOME in every way!

Happy Holidays!Lets Scribble.png

What makes you smile? What is your favorite way to share love during Christmas?

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.

Long, Knit socks are super cozy and they keep you really warm. I have a pair of grey socks that are so comfy!

Hot Drinks.png

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!
