Downtown Chicago Pictures+Touring German Cousin Around...

Image
Just recently, my cousin came to stay with us from Germany and it's been a blast! We've done a lot of photography together but I think the best so far is from downtown Chicago. Normally, I pictures of mostly nature and food. But recently, I got inspired from my friends instagram: https://www.instagram.com/yaya_vast/ She takes AMAZING photos of the city! Anyways, we went downtown with my cousin to show her some cool Chicago and I was like...

Time for camera action.


And I took that.

A lot of times I feel like the city is so ugly why would I want to take a freakin' picture of it? But, I realized it was time to embrace were I live.


Those towers were so weird and cool I just couldn't resist. Cars were parked in those little cubby areas farther down the building. What a view to come home to and look out of your garage at!




I am NOT trying to be political guys I just accidentally got Trump tower in there. After we walked for like a mile we finally got to the bean. Then I took …

Guest Post: Easy Mocha Mix by Bethany Kimball

Hey everybody!
Today I am going to show you one of my favorite recipes.  It is super easy and I love it!   The recipe makes a lot of cups, because you only use three teaspoons of it per cup of water :).  So here is what you need:

Dry Creamer (I used hazelnut creamer, but you can do whatever)CocoaInstant coffeeSugarChocolate pudding mix (optional, but fun)
Ok, so put one cup of the dry creamer into a bowl (I used a jar so it looked fancy).  Next add the chocolate pudding (or just skip this step if you want).
Add four tablespoons of cocoa.

Now add one cup sugar.


Last but not least add in one cup instant coffee.

Now mix it all up; I could not mix it in the jar so I mixed it in a bowl and poured it in.

To make the actual mocha put three teaspoons mocha mix in a cup with cold water. 

Microwave for one minute (If you want it really hot you can microwave it more), and stir.

Your mocha is complete. Yum!
Okay, for all of you people who like to skip all the dillydallying and get to the point he…

Makeup and Hair in the 1800's

Hey guys, I haven't been blogging as much since Summer came on! I'd much rather be outside swimming, walking, and getting sun because I'm completely famished of it from the winter. I literally could move to California because all this depressing cold 6 months of the year in the Midwest just isn't working for me!

Anyways, recently I've been getting really into 18th and 19th century reading. More specifically, authors from that time like Jane Austen, George MacDonald, and Charles Dickens.
Somehow I just cannot ever remember Charles Dickens name when I need to because I read his book David Copperfield and it just mixes me up so bad!

So, after reading all this about the 18 and 1900's, I just got really curious about their real life like hygiene, makeup, and hair. You know, like everyday things that you don't hear much about in books and movies because the story os  generally known to be more interesting.
But, not for me.
It started with a HUGE curiosity about …
