Q&A answers: part two! + I hit 200 followers!! *claps in a circle aka round of applause*

Hello beautiful people! How are you? I’m doing good 🙂 My weather went downhill since my last post but life still isn’t bad.

This is random but I just want to put it out there: I really REALLY want to buy a leopard print bucket hat. And I’m struggling because I know I probably will never wear it but I want to buy it and be brave enough to wear it and I’m strugglinggggg. Also I haven’t went the store for a while so I need to do that if I want to buy it. Ok, I’m done my mini rant now! 😂

As you can probably tell from that handy photo thing above that I just whipped up, I’m doing the second part of answering questions from back when I got 100 followers! It’s been a while and I’m extremely honored to say that I hit 200 followers last month! My dudes, ladies, pretty people, whatever you wish to be called, thank you all so much!!! I’m honestly so amazed at the support you guys have given me, y’all are the BEST. Sorry about the mushy stuff but I wanted to say it. so thank you. from the bottom of my heart. 💕

onto the answers!!

Esther’s questions:

1. Favorite animal? 

Dogs. or seals. or otters. I can’t pick xD                                                                                                                                                       

2. Dogs or cats?

Dogs. They’re so fluffy and like woman best friends and cats (ummm idkk) they just give me some vibes and I don’t like them. I feel like they would take over the world if they could? Anyone get that vibe from them?Please say I’m not the only one xD. 

3. What’s your favorite pet name?

Hmm I’m not sure. Our cats are having kittens right now though and I’m trying to convince my sister to give them all old English posh names but she doesn’t like the idea. Imagine a cute fluffy little kitty named Edward?! It would be the cutest thing imo 😉

4. Favorite color?

Blue. all shades and kinds of blue. Yellow is a close runner up though

5. Favorite song?

Can’t choose xD Recently I’ve been missing church and I’ve been listening to hymns and realizing how much I love them. One of my favorites is “How deep the Father’s love for us”, it’s a good one ❤️

6. Least favorite movie?

HOLD ON. I KNOW ONE. LET ME FIND IT. Okay it’s “Two Bits and Pepper”. I don’t know why but when I watched this movie a couple years ago I just hated it. It seemed plot-less and scary and yeah: I didn’t like it.

7. Favorite movie?

All of the Narnia movies. But my favorite is the one with Prince Caspian. And it’s not just because he’s cute. I like the movie xD

8. Favorite boy/girl names?

I really like the boy name Micah, and the girl names Emma and Madeline. In my opinion it’s so much harder to come up with boy names, am I right?!

9. Favorite scent?

Wet clean clothes. How the clothes smell when you’re switching them from the washer to the dryer-it’s the absolute best thing ever.

10. Favorite flavor?

Idkkk. It depends on the thing, I really like barbecue chips but I don’t like barbecue sauce. I don’t know.

11. Who’s your favorite celebrity?      

 I really like Sadie Robertson. I feel like she’s a good role model and I really like some of her speeches etc. that she’s given.     

12. If you had to lose one of your five senses: touch, sight, hearing, smell, and taste, which one would you lose?

Maybe touch. I DON’T KNOW. Probably not touch. But maybe touch? I can’t choose. this is such a hard question!

13. If you had to turn into an animal, which one would it be?

A bird, I love how they can swoop and fly so gracefully. There’s also those clumsy birds that fly into windows. that would be yours truly. I would be a clumsy bird xD


Diamond’s questions:

What book series is your favorite?

I can’t really choose but one of my favorites series are “Dinah Harris Mysteries” and they’re murder mysteries where a former FBI agent becomes a Christian and solves murders.

What is the best piece of blogging advice you have to offer?

Engage. I think engaging with followers and the blogs you follow is SO important, it helps build an engaged audience and you get to make new blogging friends so it’s awesome 🙂

What color shirt are you wearing right now?

Blueeee. It’s actually my pajamas shirt but oh welll shhhh xD

If you were to write a bestselling novel, what would it be about?

I would like to write an inspiring true life novel maybe… or something about World War II. Actually yeah, some kind of historical fiction probably. 

What is the favorite photo you’ve ever taken?

I take like 8000+ pictures per day (not literally xD) so I can’t choose but one of my recent favorites is this:

What would be your dream job?

A coffee barista at Black Rock coffee bar! I want to learn how to make all the coffee 😉 


Nicole’s Questions:

What is your favorite kind of chocolate?

YUM chocolate ❤ I like milk chocolate because dark is too bitter but i also enjoy white 🙂 I’m just a fan of chocolate 😉

–Who are three of your favorite YouTubers?

Okay so I don’t watch youtube much but when I do I enjoy watching Elina Osborne’s videos on her hiking the PCT,  Emma Marie, and Haley Pham ( did you hear she got engaged?!!?!!? SO CUTE) 

What was the first blog you discovered? Well originally my friend Liberty had a blog so probably hers first, and then my first wordpress one I remember was Bayance. I remember being in awe of these two because their blogs were Ah. Mazing.

Music you’re currently listening to?

A lot of hymns, some country, some pop, some alternative, some Christian, you know-all the good stuff 😉


And that’s all for today! I’m hoping to do one more of these to finish up the rest if the questions, you guys asked a lot (THANK YOU!!!!) and I hope you enjoyed! I’m thinking for my 300 follower milestone I may do a giveaway? What to you think? Let me know? Also happy Memorial Day!

My attempt at an ombré cake. Quarantine crafts with Jasmin #4 *drools*

Hello one and all! How are you doing on this fine day? I’m doing wonderful as our weather is amazing and that makes me happy 🙂

Today is going to be a short-is post but I figured I could do a “quarantine crafts with Jasmin” post with my sister’s birthday cake that I made and decorated a couple weeks ago!

My baby sister Bridget turned 4 a couple weeks ago and for her birthday, she wanted a horse cake. As I semi-enjoy baking, I was charged with the job. Well not exactly charged, I kinda volunteered but anyways: I was charged to make her cake.

Since a box mix is easier, we decided to do that rather than make a cake from scratch. Also I’m sorry but as I wasn’t planning on doing this post, I didn’t take many pictures of the process. My mom picked up 2 boxes of cake mix so I could attempt to make a four layer cake, something I’ve never done before and it was quite fun! I also had two cans of vanilla frosting. and some sprinkles, because sprinkles make everything better, am I right?!

I had quite the mess going on xD.

Bridget just wanted a plain cake with some play horses stuck on the top so I decided to spice it up and attempt an ombré frosting look. Wow I was an ambitious child. Just kidding, but I had not a clue on what I was doing. So I kind of just dyed some frosting to what I thought was a dark shade of purple and slathered that along the bottom. Then I attempted to make a lighter version of purple for the middle but it turned out to be around the same shade of purple as the bottom one but oh well. I didn’t stress too much. Then I plopped a generous helping of plain white frosting on the top and then I went ahead and tried to blend that down into the purple. It went pretty smoothly except it looked pretty chunky and rough.

Kinda messy. So I used a neat trick my mom taught me: you dip a frosting smear-er thingy into a cup of hit water and you smooth out the frosting. It must melt the frosting kind of with the metal on the frosting smear-er and it gives the cake a glazed look. So I did that and this is how it turned out! I also threw some sprinkles onto the bottom to add some extra-ness! What’d u think?

Notice the glazed look on top? *raises eyebrows and nods professionally*

I’m honestly quite proud of myself, I think it looks pretty awesome, maybe even awesome enough to be from a store 😉 My sister was quite pleased and so was I, so it was cool! Sadly, I couldn’t have it as I was gluten free, and the cake was full of gluten but everyone that ate it thought it was delicious. So there was a happy ending 🙂

Thank you so much for reading this, you’re the best 🙂 Have you ever made an ombre cake? Have you ever made a 4 layer cake? What’s your favorite cake flavor? Mine’s probably chocolate but honestly cake is delicious so I can’t choose xD Hope you enjoyed, talk to me in the comments, I’d love to chat!

May bullet journal setup *proudly shows you*

Hey hey beautiful people 🙂 (how’s that for a new opening? I like it ;)) How are you all, I hope your well and staying safe with all the corona stuff flying around! I’m doing good! And to get straight to the point, it’s time for another May bullet journal setup post! Yay! I feel like you guys all enjoy these posts and I enjoy reading bujo posts and I ALSO enjoy journaling and blogging about my set up so it works out perfectly! Woah that was a long ramble *wipes sweat off forehead* 😂 Anyways, for May’s theme I chose to do plants/succulents/cactus’/etc. and although I don’t totally love the theme, I’m very happy with how it came out! Okayyy I know what y’all are thinking, lets see some pictures! 😉

This is my cover page! I’m pretty happy with it, I think the plants are all so cute but my calendar thing is kind of messed up by that hanging plant/(and the plant on the bottom right) but oh welllll xD. You don’t notice it until I mention it 😉 OHHH ALSO: I LOVE THE QUOTE, don’t you? It gives me happy vibes 🙂

Next my calendar, pretty basic, nothing super special but it’s still cute! I have a bit of birthdays this month, all bunched into about a week xD. Hopefully the COVID-19 situation calms down and my calendar can fill up this month!

My mood tracker! I struggled making this but it turned out pretty cute! I LOVE the plant theme, I always do a plant theme 1+ time/s per year because it’s simple and super cute 🙂 Hopefully I have a lot of green days in this coming month!

Next is my playlist and I added a couple songs that I’ve been loving! My musical taste/genre is literally all over the place, but its fine 😉

Last but not least, I have my goals/self care challenge page. I’ve recently been doing self care challenges each month (except I skipped April) but it’s quite fun and it motivates me to do/complete my goals! I drew some cute little greenery sketches on some simple green Washi tape to spice it up and I think it turned out adorable!

............................................................................................

Well, that concludes my May bujo setup, I hope you enjoyed! Sorry for not posting for a while, I’ve been staying busy with at-home-projects during quarantine!

What have you been up to? Which page was your favorite? Do you have a bullet journal? Talk to me in the comments, I love to chat! ❤️❤️❤️

Wishing you the happiest of Mays,

xx, Jasmin
