Back 2 school!

Back-to-School Comments

One thing every tweenager dreads is going back to school, but along with the displeasure of leaving your couch for the next 180 days comes with a plus, school shopping! I have always enjoyed shopping for school i'm not quite sure why, but i love it. One thing i learned last year was to keep myself extremely organised because, every year right about in the middle of the year i start losing things , everything just gets shoved into one place and its just one big mess.
                         ~Easy Note taking~

To keep yourself oraganized this year try zip up three ringed binders (the reason I suggest zip up is because it keeps everything from getting destroyed) . Get colorful tabs and folders for each period, lable each tabs according to the subject , take your notebook paper and put some in each section for every class, that way when you are ready to take notes you can just flip to the subject your in.

One school necessity for me is a planner the one I got for this year is my favorite so far, it has tabs on the sides making it so much easier to navigate through the various sections. Planners not only organize your backpack it organizes your mind.
                        ~Locker Space~

There is one thing that i know of that excites girls going into middle school, lockers. They are place to call you own for the year. We all know that our lockers are not going to be as neat as the one in the picture shown above, but its important to keep them as clean as possible. Make sure you put your books on the bottom shelf, their easier to get to and more convenient. Keep your locker free of papers, as well as open food. I know that at my school if you leave open food in your locker there will be tons of bugs in your locker the next morning. Stay away from cluttering up your locker door with tons of magnets this can make it look busy as well as messy.

Hope your school year is awesome!

Cheap and Easy Tips for teenage girls on how to Create a Spa right in your own bathroom

 One thing us girls are genetically born with is our want to pamper ourselves. Not only does it make us feel good it seems to make us look good to. But its super easy to achieve a relaxing spa worthy afternoon right in your own bathroom.

First choose the mood, if you want to perk up, feel more awake, pick scented candles that reflect your mood like citrus, and play upbeat music. If you want your spa experience to be a little more relaxing try scented candles that smell like lavender, and play relaxing music, like oriental or classical.

Then once you have everything ready start a bubble bath and add extract oils. But be careful baths can really dehydrate you quickly, so drink lots of water. While your soaking in the bath tub apply a facial cleansing mask, put lip exfoliants on, put on a hair mask or wash, ect. When you get out apply your favorite scented lotion and put comfy pajamas on. then you can continue relaxing.

is it a rat or a mole?

Yesterday me and my family went to the national zoo in Washington DC. We saw the craziest, ugliest creature I've personally ever seen. This little creature is called the Heterocephalus glaber ( I realize that's way to hard for all of us to pronounce, so its nickname is The mole rat.)  its skin has hardly any feeling in it, making it possible for them to live in harsh environments.

These crazy little animals run ramped all through eastern Africa. They are not an endangered spiecies these rodents are very large in numbers. In fact, There probably are so many because they live so long! They are considered the longest living rodent, with a lifespan up twenty~eight years.

Sherlock Holmes Quotes

Sherlock: [Watson] Never theorize before you have data. Invariably, you end up twisting facts to suit theories, instead of theories to suit facts. 

Mary Morstan: It does seem a little far-fetched, though. Making all these grand assumptions based on such tiny details... 
Sherlock Holmes: Well, that's not quite true, is it? In fact, the little details are by far the most important. 

~Travel~ (France)

France is four-fifths the size of Texas and has many famous landmarks, over the years it has become a popular place for tourists because of its beautiful structures like the Eiffel Tower and the Cathedral of Notre Dame. France's capital is one of the most well known french cities, Paris.

 ~The Eiffel Tower~
The Eiffel tower is one of the most recognisable structures today. In 1889 it was built as an exibitation tower and was also made to be an entry arch for the world fair . It was not meant to be a permanent structure but it still remains standing  today.

The Eiffel tower is often called the iron lady in france (la dem de fer). This famous tower stands 984 feet off the ground. Thats seven stories high! One of the cool things about the Eiffel tower is inside the first and second floors there are restraunts.


Ever wondered how this famous soft drink came to be?
This is one of the very fist Coca~Cola bottles
On may, 1886, a local pharmacist in Atlanta named John Pemberton  created this product in a three legged brass kettle in his back yard. Pembertons close friend and bookkeeper , Frank Robinson suggested the name Coca~Cola, and actually in scripted the familiar logo that we see on cans and bottles today. Because robinson was a bookkeeper his handwriting was extremely neat.

Coca~Cola was actually was  first introduced as a tonic, which contained traces of Koca nut (which was rich in caffeine) and Cocaine.
