100



Hi friends!
So I literally just realized that I hit 100 blog posts, on my last blog post, which I feel like is quite a milestone!  It's been about 2 years since I started this blogging journey and I have enjoyed every minute of it.  I think that it is really nice to be able to express my thoughts and feelings and everything else on the internet and share it with other cool people.  That is one amazing thing about the power of the internet.  I feel like I finally have a voice, which has been really transformational for me as a person.

I just wanted to say THANK YOU for being here with me on this journey and letting me become a part of your life.  I could not be more grateful.

To many, many more,

Em

Yummy Treats | Grandma's Bakery

Hi friends!

Since I have come home for the weekend, we decided that we should go have some fun. And by fun, I mean eat yummy food.  We headed over to the locally famous Grandma's Bakery
They have so many sweet treats: from cakes to donuts to cookies to bread.  All of the treats.


 As you can see below, we opted for the "French Silk Pie Cupcake".  So that's an amazing thing that happened.  And yes, it was just as delicious as it sounded.


It was discovered that as soon as you bit into it, it contained a delicious french silk pie chocolate filling.  *drool*


So that was our fun adventure are Grandma's Bakery!
If you are ever in White Bear Lake, make sure to drop by and try some of their treat!

Talk to you soon,

Thanksgiving Break

Hi friends!

Today I am headed home for Thanksgiving break - WOOOOO!  I am so excited.  I need this.  Honestly, school is just draining me so much this semester and I need a good break from everything school related.  I am so excited to go home and see my family, eat my mom's cooking, and doing nothing.  Absolutely nothing.  I can't believe Christmas is almost here already, I am SO EXCITED. *clenches fist in excitement*

Anyways, I need to desperately finish packing because I am not even close to be finished...

Talk to you soon,

ALBUM REVIEW | Purpose - Justin Bieber

Hey friends!
Today I am going to discuss THIS:
Justin Bieber - Purpose




I have been very VERY excited for this album, ever since he started releasing songs, from What Do You Mean? and most recently, Sorry (which I have been obsessed with).
Now before I begin about the album, I have to say that I have never really been into Justin Bieber's music.  I mean, yes, his music was catchy, but it was a bit TOO pop-y for my tastes.  Now that that's out of the way, let's talk about the album.

I got Purpose (Deluxe) so it came with 19 songs, and before I talk more I just wanted to say that I am really loving this Justin Bieber.  I know that he has gotten a bad rap because of past things he's done, but I think he is trying to turn himself around and pour himself into his music.  Which I think is awesome. The music on Purpose is the music that I genuinely like to listen to, so well done Bieber!
One of the things that I enjoyed about this album (that might annoy some) is that there is a wide variety of types of songs: there are some cool beat songs as well as some slow, meaningful songs.  These definitely highlight Justin's voice in a very positive way.  He has a great voice!  There are also guest appearances such as Big Sean, Travi$ Scott, Halsey(WOO!!), and Skrillex and Diplo.  Very cool - I am happy to see these and I think they work well with each of the songs they are featured in.

A couple of my favorite songs:  Sorry, Purpose, Children, The Feeling


Overall, I am very excited about this album and it will be on repeat until I know all the lyrics haha!

Have you listened to Purpose yet?  What do you think?

A New Hobby??

GUYS.

So I was cleaning my room the other day, and I found a watercolor palette (like one of those ones that are on your first grade school supplies list, so not too fancy haha).  So exciting!!  I immediately had to make something.  To be honest, I probably spent way too much time making this, but ya know it was fun!

LOOK.
(p.s. I looked at a picture online, I don't actually know how to do watercolor this well!)

Towards the end, the watercolors started to merge and blend together, hence why there is a giant brown blob on the hummingbird's wing.
But overall, I am pretty dang pleased with it.  And myself.  I should do this more often. :)

What are your favorite hobbies?  Let me know!!

Until next time,
Em

A Day at Canal Park

Yesterday was my school's Mid-semester break, so we got the day off (which was super awesome!).  But since it actually wasn't freezing/raining out for once, my friends and I decided that it would be fun to get some fresh air.  We decided to go to Canal Park, which is a well-known place to go in Duluth.  Canal Park is definitely a tourist destination in the summer, but now that it is getting colder, it was completely abandoned except for the occasional jogger.  There is a lake walk on the shore of Lake Superior, which is always a useful for a nice stroll.  And even though it wasn't super sunny, it was the perfect temperature where all you need is a light jacket.


Overall, I had such a nice day off from school and I feel very relaxed from taking a long walk with this beaut view!
