JustFab & WHY You Should Try It!

JustFab.com… have you tried it yet? I think you should. I have….

I was happily surprised that I enjoy it so much after signing up in November. I sighed up because the hit tv show, Project Runway was sponsored by JustFab. Not only were they sponsored, BUT they also had a challenge where the winner’s item would be sold on the website! Of course, the winner was Laurence Basse with this KILLER jumpsuit… 

I HAD to have it. So, I took a leap & signed up for my first members-only shopping site. I had to wait a month to get the jumpsuit, naturally it was sold out. When I got it, I loved it! Take a look….

Now. I’m short & obviously not a model size, but I think I look dang good! And of course it is slightly different than what was on the show, which is ok. I’m so happy with this purchase, not to mention the others I’ve done. So let me talk about the site some more. 

JustFab.com is a members-only shopping site. Yes, you have to sign up to use it. The details:

  • You have to know if you’re going to shop on the site by the 5th of every month. AND if you decide not to shop that month, you have to skip the month. Yes, you can skip & still shop later. That’s what I do so that I have more time. Plus, I sometimes get paid after the 5th, and ya need money to shop right?! Lol. 
  • Shipping is free for any purchase over $39.95! Pretty awesome! 
  • You get points for every dollar you spend, AND for every review you write.
  • You can cancel anytime! I haven’t yet, and idk if I will.

You get styled based on what items you pick. I am a girl next door, which I figured. Lol They suggest outfits, shoes & you can of course pick what you like OR order just from the site & not your boutique. I’ve done both. 

Like I said, you can shop whatever you want! You just have to sign up of course. I know it can be a pain, but it’s not as bad as you think… 

Yup, it’s true, they’ve been running for 7 years! Congrats JustFab! 

Another thing, once you become a certain level in your membership, you can join their program PS. PS is a Personal Shopping assistant that creates a box for you to try things on at home! Then, you can decide to buy them, return them or whatever! Read below…

Pretty cool! I tried it and it was better than I expected. I didn’t keep everything, but it was fun to check out! I think it’s the smartest idea, honestly. So many people hate trying on clothes. So wouldn’t you rather try it at home? Yeah, genius! 

So, Happy Birthday JustFab! Everyone should try it, I mean why not? The clothes are made with very good quality & are easy to exchange, return or better yet, KEEP! 

So try it if you haven’t, I think you’ll like it. Just be careful & don’t lose all your money! Lol


Grumpy: The Funniest of the 7 Dwarfsย 

We’ve all watched Snow White & the Seven Dwarfs and we know all the dwarfs’ names by heart. Dopey, Happy, Sneezy, Grumpy, Doc, Bashful & Sleepy. All of them were funny in their own way. But I know what you’re thinking…….

Grumpy isn’t the funny one, Dopey is! That’s partly true, yes. However, I have a different view; one that I got as an adult–not a child.

As children watching this Disney classic, we were meant to laugh at Dopey. Dopey was the comic relief for the kids! Everything he does is funny, even though he doesn’t talk. And I’m pretty sure Walt Disney meant for it to be this way. It’s true, ALL seven dwarfs are funny, but the top two are Grumpy & Dopey–with Doc right behind them at #3. 

Dopey does crazy funny stuff. The funniest is probably when he eats the soap! Honestly though, as an adult, all I can think of is how gross that would be in real life. Right?! There are plenty of other things Dopey does that are pretty funny too. I’m sure you remember them like I do. 

Grumpy is funnier in his lines & attitude. He says all the funny lines that mainly adults get. However, he can come across as mean to children. Again, that’s on purpose, hence the name Grumpy. You can tell he’s the guy who doesn’t like change & is very superstitious. For example, he’s pretty sure the Evil Queen is full of “black magic” and will “swoop down and reak her vengeance on us!” in his own words. And he’s totally right most of the time! My favorite part is when everyone else is washing up & Grumpy thinks it’s nuts….  “A fine bunch of water lillies you turned out to be.” I’m laughing out loud every time he says it! 

Another one who’s funny for adults is #3: Doc. Doc sputters his speech all thru the film but is obviously the smartest of the group. There are plenty of times that it is hysterical what he actually says vs what he’s trying to say. For example, when Doc is trying to find out who Snow White is, he first says “What are you and who are you doin?” Come on guys…. that’s a hidden dirty joke in there! Doc is trying to say “Who are you and what are you doin here?” And it didn’t come out that way. He’s another funny one where you have to hear/understand his lines. 

Lastly, there is one more slightly funny thing that doesn’t involve a dwarf. After the Evil Queen has changed into an old lady, and after creating her poison apple, she checks the spell book. She checks to make sure there’s no cure for the sleeping death. But there is… love’s first kiss. Her response? “Love’s first kiss! (Slams book shut) She’ll be buried alive!” And she laughs hysterically at the idea of the cure actually happening. To be honest, it’s kinda funny that she doesn’t believe it could even happen. Didn’t she see the prince? There’s always a chance when it’s true love! 

It’s also funny cuz I’m single and I’m pretty sure somewhere, someone thinks it’s as impossible as the Evil Queen does… haha!

Let’s try a little experiment….

1) Close your eyes & think way back to watching Snow White as a kid. Now, think of all the times you laughed SO hard at Dopey. What was he doing that was so funny? Write it down. 

2) Now, think about all the times you thought Grumpy was mean when you watched this film as a kid: Why was he mean in your opinion? When was it in the story? Write it down.

3) Finally, watch the movie as an adult. If you can, do it by yourself. As you watch, see which parts make you laugh now. See which parts aren’t as funny as you remember them. And, see if anything makes you cry (bonus*which dwarf makes you cry when they cry about Snow White’s death?) Also, see if a totally different character makes you laugh!

*Here are my results/thoughts in terms of the questions above: (I added pictures just did fun)

1) I used to laugh really hard at Dopey eating the soap or when Sneezy sneezed. Sneezy was another funny one that I forgot! I also laughed when the turtle falls down the stairs. Otherwise, this film was never my favorite… but now I like it way more!

2) Grumpy was mean when he wanted to send Snow White away. Also, why didn’t he want to wash? She just wanted him to be clean. 

3) Dopey isn’t as funny, but still had some funny parts. Sneezy is only funny to me the first time he sneezes so bad that everyone flys away. The turtle falling is still funny! Snow White is funny when she figures out which one Grumpy is. 

Omg Doc, that was a dirty joke.. haha!

After Grumpy runs into the door, Snow White goes, “Aw did you hurt yourself??” GOOD BURN Snow White! Hahaha

OMG Grumpy is so funny! Am I just like him?? My new favorite line sequence is: Grumpy: “They’re full of wicked wiles.” Bashful: “What are wicked wiles?” Grumpy: “I don’t know, but imma get ’em!” Lol 

Oh lord, let’s just say this: “Bbbb bbbb bbbb!” I love that washing scene. 

That silly song is funnier than you think….

Grumpy DOES like her…. Oh no, he’s sad that she’s dead. OK IM CRYING NOW! Thanks Grumpy..

Yay! She’s alive! Grumpy must be so happy. Well, they all are. A Happy Ending!

*– That was it! I would love to hear your results & answers too! Please comment & we can compare.*

So you see why I think Grumpy is the funniest? Plus, my family agrees. Go Grumpy!

Thanks for reading! This one was fun, also it gave me a chance to review some characters I never thought of before. Enjoy!
Pictures all came from Google or screen shots of my own. 

Disney Animals List: Birds

“Birds of a feather should flock together.”

It’s another Disney animated animals list! This time, we are looking at all the birds. Birds: their small and sometimes not seen, but heard. Disney has always done a great job with birds, their characters, sounds & actions!

There are a few movies I never saw in the early 2000s (I know, it’s crazy) so if there’s animals from them I missed, please comment & tell me! I will not be offended. But on all the other classics and such, I know what I’m doing. ๐Ÿ˜‰ So here we go!

1) Baby Blue Bird- Snow White (1937). Just before the Huntsman decided not to kill Snow, she was holding a baby blue bird who was lost. He was THE FIRST Disney animated bird on a film! He & his parents also showed up in the rest of the movie. There were other birds in the forest too, but these 3 stood out. 

2)Crow & Vultures- Snow White (1937). These are the evil birds in the film. The crow watches the evil queen make her potion & poison apple. He’s kinda funny. The vultures linger in the woods, watching the queen. In the end, they lead you to believe that the vultures went down to pick at the queens crushed body…. Ew! 

3) Blue Fairy’s Dove- Pinocchio (1940). In Pinocchio, a magical dove brings a note from the Blue Fairy. The note tells Pinocchio & Jiminy Cricket that Gapetto has been swallowed by Monstro, the whale! So yeah, the dove doesn’t do much… But it was there!

4) Doves with Girl Minotaurs- Fantasia (1940). What is it with doves?? Anyways… These doves sit on a girl Minotaur’s hair as a chic hairstyle. It’s funny!

5) Ostrich Ballerinas- Fantasia (1940). These are my favorite!! I love the music, I love their dancing. So cute! Not to mention, this became iconic. 

6) Crows in a Tree- Dumbo (1941). These crows aren’t until the end of the film. However, they are very funny. I love their song too! And they fit the era of this movie very well. It’s cool how Disney does that.

7) Birds in Forest- Bambi (1942). Now, there are tons of birds in this film. So I’ll break them down by species and keep them in one group…. Oh! And all of them are also in the rain scene. 

Friend Owl: The owl knows everyone & seems to know everything. I love when he talks about being twitterpated! Speaking of that…..

Lovebirds of the forest: There they all are! The twitterpated birds which drive the owl nuts. 

Mama Quail & Babies: These guys are so cute! We see them throughout the film, and it’s adorable. 

Pheasants: Here’s the group of pheasants. We see a few of these on the rain scene. We mainly meet them in the scene where man has come to the forest. In the photo above is THIS dummy. This ONE pheasant got too anxious and had to fly away. The rest told her to stay put and what happened? She got shot. Yes, this was one of Disney’s cruelest moments, second to Bambi’s mother dying. 

And that’s all the birds basically from Bambi!

8) The Three Caballeros (1944). This mini film consist of 3 birds! What? No way! Lol We have the parrot, the red bird, & Donald Duck himself!

9) Mr. Bluebird on My Shoulder- Song of the South (1946). We all know the song… Zip a Dee do dah! There really is a bluebird on his shoulder!

10) Hummingbirds- Song of the South (1946). I really love the fact that these Hummingbirds hum.. haha, good one Disney! 

11) Birds- Cinderella (1950). These birds are Cinderella’s friends. They also seem to be her alarm clock. There are blue birds….

And brown birds…..

And this one red bird who’s cute but too loud with his singing. 

Overall, they are sweet & help Cinderella all the time. Plus, we see them again in BOTH of Cinderella’s other movies. There were also chickens in the beginning of this movie as well.

12)Normal birds- Alice In Wonderland (1951). There are TONS of birds in this movie. So we will start with the normal birds, then the abnormal ones. When Alice is dreaming up wonderland, there’s a bluebird who sings back to her. This guy! 

There are also some bigger, normal birds in wonderland…

For example, the parrots, pelican & tucan(?) that run around the Dodo bird.

And I guess we could count Mr. Dodo as normal. Even though he is a little wacky haha.

Another “normal looking” bird in Alice In Wonderland, is this bird below. She’s the one who has a nest & thinks Alice is some kind of serpent. Also, she & Dodo are wearing some type of clothes while no other birds do… very curious. 

The last normal birds we see are during the game of croquet; the flamingos! They may be used in a weird way, but what isn’t weird about this movie?! 

13) Abnormal Birds of Wonderland- Alice In Wonderland (1951). This group is going to get confusing. Please note, most of these birds idk they’re names so I’m kinda making one up. Here we go…. 

Just before Alice gets lost, we see all these birds in this area. First, we see this organ-owl who is pretty funny.

Next we see the birdcage; a bird that’s also a cage-for birds- get it?! Haha I crack myself up. 

Another bird we see is this mirror bird with a friend who is a pair of glasses. When the glasses appear in the mirror, Alice disappears & thus gives the mirror bird eyes! Trippy!

We also see these taller, Shovel birds. They seem more like cranes possibly… 

Next, we see the Hammet & Pencil birds making a sign. 

As Alice follows a path that’s been erased, she runs into the next birds who aren’t so kind to her…

She see’s these Umbrella Vultures. I say vultures because that’s what they looked folded up. When these guys fly into a tree, they glare at her like vultures as well.

Lastly, she see’s this Horn Duck family. The mother is quite rude to Alice. 

When Alice is sad that she’s lost, all the abnormal birds come back to her and get sad like her. You can say they are part of her imagination & are tied to her feelings.

14) Swans- Peter Pan (1953). Yes, there are swans when they leave London in the beginning. Tinkerbell flies by a few AND this happens…. 

PETER WTF are you doing?! Those poor swans, at least we know he’s light…..

15) Bird that gets shaved- Peter Pan (1953). I love this scene. It’s always cracked me up. Smee thinks this bird’s butt is Hook’s face… he really isn’t paying attention is he?! Like, how did he forget to unwrap Hook from the towel he wrapped around it?!

16) Black birds- Lady & the Tramp (1955). These birds are in Lady’s yard, and she quickly chases them away.There is a whole group of them that fly. It seems to be a routine for her.

17) Doves- Lady & the Tramp (1955). All I can say is, “Hi gals, how’s pickin’s?”- Tramp to these birds…. 

18) Birds in window & parrot- Lady & the Tramp (1955). Here are more birds in this film, there aren’t many. First, there are the birds in the window once the baby is born. 

Next, there is a parrot in the pet shop when Lady gets a muzzle. There are also some other birds that she accidentally lets out when running away. 

19) Birds in Belle Note- Lady & the Tramp (1955). We see lots of birds during Lady & Tramp’s love night…. or should I say love birds? Haha 

There are two owls side by side in a tree. Then there are two swans swimming in the lake. So much love!! 

20) Chasing Chickens- Lady & the Tramp (1955). Ever chase chickens? I should say not! And these two probably shouldn’t have, but these are the last birds we see in this film. 

21) Birds in forest- Sleeping Beauty (1959). Honestly, I love these birds. These birds are all friends of “Briar Rose” or Aurora as we know her. There is a whole group of them!

22) Owl- Sleeping Beauty (1959). The owl is pretty cute. He and some of the birds try to cheer Briar Rose up by being her “dream prince”. Pretty smart! 

23) Maleficent’s Raven- Sleeping Beauty (1959). Maleficent’s raven is the one who finds Aurora’s location. He is a well trained pet to be honest.

24) Archimedes the owl- Sword In the Stone (1963). Archimedes is a highly educated owl– meaning he talks! He’s pretty funny in this film, as well as grumpy! Haha 

If you think about it, the wart or Arthur becomes a bird in this film too, but we won’t really count him. 

25) Evil Hawk & bird in nest- Sword In the Stone (1963). This bird is pure evil! The hawk we see twice, and he just looks so intense! Look at him!

We also see a scrawny bird in a nest when Merlin & Arthur are squirrels for a day. This bird gets PISSED OFF at Arthur for running into him. Those squirrelly squirrels!!  

26) Band of Vultures- The Jungle Book (1967). If you notice in this film, Walt wanted some great singers in it. He had some famous voices in there, and these birds were supposed to be The Beatles! These guys are fun for a group of Vultures. And the only birds we see. 

27) Abigail & Amelia Gabble, the Geese- The Aristocats (1970). These sisters are amazing. I love how they try to teach Mr. O’Malley to swim when cats don’t swim. Hahaha 

28) Uncle Waldo- The Aristocats (1970). MY personal favorite!  Especially when he’s marinated. This British goose is quite a drunk. So here’s this meme I found of his best part…. SHERRY!! Loling on the floor, every time.

29) Lady Cluck- Robin Hood (1973). Clucky is pretty funny. She’s always ready to take on someone too! 

30) Trigger & Nutsy- Robin Hood (1973). Trigger & Nutsy are the guards of the jail & they do whatever the sheriff tells them.

31) Bluebird- The Rescuers (1977). Yes, there is another bluebird! But this one isn’t in it for long.

32) Orville the Albatross- The Rescuers (1977). Orville is a big bird who flies mice to their destination. It seems in the end of the film that he became Bianca & Bernard’s personal pilot. 

33) Owl- The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh (1977). We can’t forget our friend Owl! And yes, Owl has been in all the other Pooh movies, especially the recent one, done in 2011. 

34) Big Mama- Fox & The Hound (1981). What is with all the owls?! Anyways, big mama helps save Todd when he’s a baby. But she didn’t do it alone….

35) Dinky & Boomer- Fox & The Hound (1981). These two are the comic relief of this film. They chase a caterpillar throughout the entire film too! I believe Dinky is the little bird, & Boomer is the woodpecker.

36) Forrest birds- Fox & the Hound (1981). Of course, we see birds flying in this film as well as dead birds in the neighbors shed. 

37) Scuttle- The Little Mermaid (1989). Scuttle! He’s a pretty funny seagull who really doesn’t know much. He also returns in the little mermaid 2! 

38) Birds singing- The Little Mermaid (1989). During the song Kiss the Girl, it seems like all kinds of animals are singing. There were 2 birds singing in that blue lagoon….. 

Yes, there were ducks & flamingos! And Scuttle was the only bird who couldn’t sing. lol 

39) Marahoote- The Rescuers Down Under (1990). Marahoote (I think that’s how it’s spelled), was the biggest bird in Australia. Toby, a little boy who I think was based off of Steve Irwin, saves her from a poachers trap. Throughout the story, Toby tries to save this magnificent, giant eagle & her eggs. 

40) Wilbur- The Rescuers Down Under (1990). Wilbur is an albatross & is Orville’s little brother. It seems Orville isn’t available & Wilbur gets to take Bernard & Bianca to Australia. He’s also voiced by John Candy who was very funny. 

41) Flying Flamingos- The Rescuers Down Under (1990). Wilbur loses track of the mice, so as he’s flying he runs into theee flamingos. But they’re flying! I don’t think flamingos fly, do they?!

42) Scrooge & Cast- DuckTales The Movie (1990). Are you singing the song yet? I AM!! So, Scrooge obviously isn’t new to the Disney world. But Disney channel made THE BEST tv show with him, & Huey, Duey & Louie! Donald Duck made an appearance every now & then. There were also new main birds in this show/movie including: the boys’ little sister Webby, the maid Mrs. Beakly, & Scrooge’s private pilot (my fav) Launch Pad. The movie was just as great to watch! And the movie had a duck genie

43)Belle’s Chickens- Beauty & the Beast(1991). Yes, Belle has chickens. We see them right before she sings THE best song on a hilltop.

44) Birds in snow- Beauty & the Beast(1991). These are the birds that Belle feeds at the castle. They also sit in the beast’s hands as well. 

45) Iago- Aladdin(1992). Iago is Jafar’s sidekick. He’s pretty funny. I do like how in the later movies & tv shows he was on Aladdin’s side. 

46) Doves & other birds- Aladdin (1992). There were other birds in this film too! Jasmine has pet doves that she sets free. There are also flamingos in the palace. There are birds in the sky when Jasmine & Aladdin are flying on the magic carpet. And lastly, there are peacocks in Aladdin’s parade made by the genie. 

47) Zazu- The Lion King (1994). Zazu is Mufasa’s advisor basically. He is a big part of Pride Rock until Mufasa dies. With Scar, he just entertains him to avoid being eaten. And he was also in the second movie AND he’s in the new tv show, The Lion Guard. 

48) Flit- Pocahontas (1995). Flit is the stubborn hummingbird that watches over Pocahontas. He is pretty good & cute. 

49). Eagles- Pocahontas (1995). The eagles are when Pocahontas is singing “Colors of the Wind”. There’s only 2 of them. 

50) Baby Bird in Nest- The Hunchback of Norte Dame (1996). This bird is so cute; this bird is scared to fly until Quasimodo convinces it that it’s ok to fly. “Nobody wants to be cooped up here forever.” 

51) Doves- The Hunchback of Norte Dame (1996). These doves (I think) follow one of the gargoyles around all the time. It drives her crazy! 

52) Pain & Panic as Birds- Hercules (1997). We see these two as birds when Meg is supposed to find Hercules’ weakness. These are the only “birds” in the film. 

53) Shan- Yu’s Falcon- Mulan (1998). This falcon sees everything & tells Shan-Yu. It’s kinda creepy! But then Mushu fries it’s feathers off and it’s hilarious.

54) THE Bird- A Bug’s Life (1998). This was the first bird done by Pixar! And it’s not just this bird who tries to eat everyone, there’s the fake bird the ants made, AND the real bird’s chicks which we see at the end, eating Hopper. 

55) Big Bird- Tarzan (1999). I have no idea what this bird is called, but Tarzan & Turk try to rope it as kids but are unsuccessful…. 

56) Parrots in Jungle- Tarzan (1999). These are the birds that Jane tries to draw. Then, Tarzan takes her into the trees where they all live to see tons of them. Btw, this scene is beautiful. 

57) Donald Duck & Daisy- Fantasia 2000(1999). Yes, we get to see Donald & Daisy in this one! They are part of the Noah’s arc scene… 

58) Other birds- Fantasia 2000(1999). Here are all the other birds in this masterpiece film…. There’s the Famingo with a Yoyo: 

Birds in the sky while those whales fly: 

And lastly, the evil Fire bird: 

59) Tip the Penguin- The Little Mermaid 2: Return to the Sea(2000). Tip is a penguin who hangs out with a walrus. Melody- Ariel’s daughter- meets these two after turning into a mermaid.

60) Singing Hummingbirds- The Tigger Movie (2000). These Hummingbirds help Tigger sing his sad song about being lonely. Yes, they hum, and it’s a sneaky reference to the ones in Songs of the South. Nice one Disney! 

61) Ted- Monsters Inc. (2001). Ted is a big bird monster. We only see his feet BUT he caws like a rooster, so do the math. Lol 

62) The Ugly Duckling – Lilo & Stitch (2002). Stitch reads the story about The Ugly Duckling one night. Later, he sees a family of ducks & no ugly duckling. 

63) Flock of birds- Brother Bear (2003). When Kenai turns into a bear, he hears these birds talking as they fly above him. I believe the same birds are at the salmon run as well. 

64) Nigel- Finding Nemo (2003). Nigel is a pelican who gets along with the dentist fish. He also gets Marlin & Dory to the dentists office to find Nemo. There are also the other pelicans with him in the harbor. 65) Seagulls- Finding Nemo (2003). 1 word…… “MINE!” 

66)Ace Cluck- Chicken Little (2005). Ace is the star of this movie, who thinks the sky is falling. But everyone calls him Chicken Little.

68) Rest of birds in town & school- Chicken Little (2005). There are quite a few more animals in this film, and more birds of course. So, here’s the rest of them: Mayor Turkey Lurkey who is in fact a turkey. Then there’s Goosey Loosey who’s a goose at school & lastly, Abby Mallard who is a duck & a friend of Chicken Little.

69) Valiant & other Pigeons- Valiant(2005). Valiant is the main character of this movie. Honestly, I never watched this one. I didn’t realize it was even Disney until later. I know, I’m lame but it’s on my list of ones to watch. And really Disney, 2 bird films in one year?!

70) Birds in Pixie Hallow- Tinker Bell(2008). The fairy named Fawn works with animals. Before Tink knew what her niche was, she tried to help animals but epically failed with these bluebirds in a nest. 

There are of course birds in all the other pixie movies. There are owls, doves, and bluebirds again as well. They do live in a forest of Neverland basically.

71) Pigeons- Bolt (2008). Bolt meets some Pigeons who are pretty dumb, but also very funny. 

72) Kevin- Up (2009). KEVIN! Is a big, rainbow, ostrich like bird in paradise falls. Kevin also has babies. Who else wanted a bird like this?! 

73) Pigeon who eats the tortilla- Toy Story 3 (2010). When trying to escape the box & the day care center, Mr. Potato head puts himself on a tortilla to hide better. But he comes across a pigeon who pokes a hole in the tortilla, & eats it. 

74) Bluebirds- Tangled (2010). They are only in this movie for a second; they fly by Rapunzel when she’s singing after getting out of her tower.

75)Eagle- Brave (2012). This eagle flys above Merida before she climbs the Firefalls. We don’t see it long, but it’s there!

76)Monster Birds- Monsters University (2013). I know it’s not a real bird, but it looks like a pigeon with two heads & a horn!! Pretty funny!

77) Becky- Finding Dory (2016). Becky is a crazy bird who helps Marlin & Nemo get to Dory. It’s pretty funny– “Ooh roo!”

78) Hei Hei- Moana (2016). Hei Hei is the hilarious Chicken who doesn’t have much brains. 

Surprisingly, there were NO BIRDS in Zootopia…. why?! Idk, ask Disney. But this is the end of the LONG Disney bird list!! Thank you for reading this one! In case you missed my other Disney animated lists, the links are right here:

Here’s a funny comic from Amy Mebberson who makes Pocket Princesses comics. Thought this one was cute with Scuttle!

I Got a Kitten!

In August…And I just realized that I didn’t blog about it! What the heck, right? To be honest, life has been quite a mess so that’s why I forgot to write about it. If you follow me on Instagram, this isn’t news to you. But to my blog followers, this IS news! So, here we go…

Ok, so first off, in July, we rescued this little guy from my aunt’s work. We named him Simba & it fits him purrfectly! And he’s so adorable &’fun.

Unbeknownst to me, Simba was not going to be mine. If you don’t know, we have a house of cats & only 1 is truly my cat. So, I thought he might be mine in the future. But I was WRONG! And nobody told me until the mom cat abandoned the rest of her litter.. yeah. So, my aunt brought them home for 1 night & told me that I could have the little girl kitten as a peace offering for not being able to have Simba. Mad & upset, at first I said no. Then Aunt Heidi held her up to me and said, “She’s a sweetheart & if you don’t want her, you can pick another one from the group of you want.” This little girl was SO ADORABLE but I still hesitated. When Aunt Becky came home, she told me a girl would probably be better for MY cat (Alice) anyways, since she thinks she’s a princess. So, I am doomed to be a cat lady. And yes, I kept the girl kitten & named her Nala. Perfect right? 

This all happened in August. So, now I technically have 2 cats; Alice & Nala. Nana & Simba are much bigger now, (they are now 6 months old) and they are even more fun! Plus it’s been great to be involved at raising them from 2/3 weeks to now. Take a look! I’ll start with photos of them younger to now…. 

I love how soft kittens are!! Don’t you?? This is them in like, October I think..

Nala… btw I love that she looks like a cheetah! 

And Simba, who loves the other cats too! Which is good because he’s got to live with them forever. 

And here’s December & now! 

They are so huge now!! And my cat, Alice, isn’t too sure what to think of them when they play in her room every night… 

but she IS ok with Nala sleeping with us… well, kinda.

..And a Crappy New Year!ย 

I hope that 2017 is WAY better than 2016. I know I’m not alone in hoping so. I had some good points in the beginning but the end of it has sucked. Not to mention all the famous people who’ve died! Including my Nana… 

R.I.P to the following:

David Bowie

Goblin King forever…

Alan Rickman

Always… ๐Ÿ’”

Dan Haggerty

Doris Roberts

She was on a lot of shows & movies! 

Anton Yelchin

So young! So sad.

Gene Wilder

This man was so funny, full of wisdom and had a world of pure imagination. 

Arnold Palmer

Not just a famous drink…



Mohammad Ali

What a guy & what a fighter..

Florence Henderson

Oh man! Not her too!

Alan Thicke

Wait… WHAT?! How did I not hear about this?

Zsa Zsa Gabor

So beautiful 

George Michael

Carrie Fisher

NO!! Not Princess Leia!

Debbie Reynolds

Carrie Fisher’s mom, whose last words were “I wanna be with Carrie.” Only a few days after her daughter. So sad!!๐Ÿ˜ซ

And many more! ;(

Yup, this year has had so many deaths I can’t remember them all. So freaking sad! I can’t wait for it to be over. But the sad truth is, 2017 may not be better than this year, and here’s why: it’s only better if you make it better. Yes, some things may be out of control-like death- but other personal issues are on yourself. It’s quite a pill to swallow sometimes. 

So when you ring in the new year, try to make it a good one. I know I will try! Good luck to everyone in the new year!!

Dear Nana

Dear Nana,

You left too soon, but I’m thankful for the time we had together…..

In this blog is what I wrote about my Nana for her celebration of life. She passed away in September & our celebration was in October. (I meant to post this sooner, but things have been hectic.) I couldn’t get up and say this without crying, so I typed it up. I put it on a lovely poster board for all our family & friends to read it. Some people didn’t really get to read it… there were so many people to visit with (which I totally understand, I was busy too). 

So, I’m posting it now so that people may read it if they missed it. I also think I did a really good job writing it. The pictures on here weren’t on the poster, but it’ll help you visualize that day that we celebrated Rebecca S. Holt’s life. In fact, the photo below is of the group of pictures that where right next to my poster. It was a lovely set up, that me and my family did all on our own. It’s how Nana would have wanted it. Another reason I’m posting this is because it’s close to the holidays and I’m feeling a lot of depression. I miss her, and I didn’t even get to truly have a Thanksgiving this year– thanks to corporate America! All I want right now is more time with my family, is that a crime?! Haha. Writing this again will help remind me how she was & would want me to be….

Rebecca was a beautiful soul, a strong person, and a kind woman. My family has called her Nana since about 1995, and I know she loved being called that. She would tell all my friends when meeting them, “Just call me Nana.” Becky cared for her family as a daughter, sister, mother & grandmother, sometimes more than she even cared for herself. Having 4 children and 6 grandchildren, it was natural to put us all first. Nana was also a great friend to more people than I have even met! Even if you didn’t know it, she was going to make sure that you were taken care of, no matter what. Before her stroke in 2012, Becky took some of her kids, grandkids & her mother on a week-long trip to San Diego as a retirement celebration. We all had so much fun and I’m very glad we got that time with her before her life changed drastically. 

The last four years have been a struggle for all of us, and we’d like to thank everyone who helped us raise money for her care & paint therapy through GoFundMe.com or any other way. It was great to see her painting again. When I was still dancing, Nana & Mom created make up for an entire show, based off of their painting skills. She loved every minute of it! The day before her stroke, she was painting with Aunt Becky & Aunt Heidi. After her stroke, Aunt Julie & I stepped in to help Mom with the make up for the 2 years of shows that she missed. That make up would not have been possible without her in the beginning. Furthermore, we couldn’t have done it if she hadn’t taught us all how years ago. I think it is something we will always cherish. Since she has passed, it is good to finally have closure and now we know she is in a better place.

So all I’d like to do today–besides share good memories–is to thank her; Thank her for always being there when someone needed her most. Nana was there for all of her children in many ways, throughout their lives. I also know she was there for many of her friends as well. For me, I never had just Mom around. As well as the many aunts, uncles & amazing great grandparents, I got to have Nana. She was like another mom to me, and I had her instead of a Dad. I think deep down, that’s why I nicknamed her “Nana” after the dog in Peter Pan–one if her favorite movies. She wasn’t just my grandmother, she was there all the time and wouldn’t miss a second if she didn’t have to. Nana couldn’t even miss out on a sunset each day! I remember a while back, she would sometimes call me at night and say, “Did you catch that sunset?” or “Take a look at that moon. It’s so big and beautiful. Isn’t it just gorgeous?” And now, I catch myself stopping to watch them more often. They are beautiful, just like she always said they were.

So today, let’s celebrate Nana, Becky, or whatever you knew her as. Let’s all care for each other, drink a Diet Dr. Pepper, and enjoy every minute we have together. We love you Nana, and we will all miss you so much! In my opinion, you left us too soon….


Kylie & the Holt Family. 

Thank you for reading! These bouquets I helped my aunt make for that day. Nana loved all things nature too…. 

Hermione’s Butterbeer Recipeย 

All Harry Potter fans know about Butterbeer, but few have tasted it. If you’ve been to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios, you’ve been lucky enough to have some! And it is SO GOOD! Right?! Right. Since the new part of the park has opened, a Butterbeer has been very popular to get. Everyone has to experience one. I’m so glad I did!

This drink is downright magical, and also pretty sweet. Butterbeer has also become something that many people want to make at home. So did I! I decided to make it for Halloween this year. I searched & found several recipes that I didn’t use for a few reasons: 1) They were too complicated (I’m no chef, ok!), 2) They made it a slushee or freeze (which is an option at the park, but I wanted the regular drink), & 3) Some recipes were just crazy confusing!

SO, I decided to use my research & make something that was what I thought was close to the Butterbeer that I had. I also wanted it simplified so that it wouldn’t be too hard to make… and like I said, I’m not a chef, I just want something yummy!! Lol Since I dressed up as Hermione for Halloween this year, I’m calling it Hermione’s Butterbeer. And let’s face it, if she ever made Butterbeer, she would do it quick!

*Acccio- Butterbeer! *

Ingredients for a single serving (don’t worry, I’ll provide measurements for bigger amounts as well)

 8 ounces of Creme Soda (A&W’s is best)

– 1 tablespoon of Hot water

– 2 tablespoons of Butterscotch Syrup topping (Smuckers)

-Whipped cream (optional)

Before you make it- notes:: I was able to find Butterscotch syrup at Food 4 Less. Many recipes created something similar to it using brown sugar & a few other ingredients. This just makes it easier by like…. 5 steps! Also, many people actually used Butter. I didn’t really taste it in the drink I had, so I vetoed that idea! I went off of my tastebuds and it was a hit. So let’s get started….
~How to do it~

1st: Pour your tablespoons of butterscotch syrup into a cup or measuring cup–it’s easier with a measuring cup. Make sure it is clear & big enough for 8 ounces!

2nd: Take hot water and drizzle barley 1 tablespoon into butterscotch syrup. This dilutes the bold butterscotch flavor just a tiny bit. Use your judgement on how much exactly for you.  Too much will loose almost all of its taste. Stir or whisk until the mixture is more liquid-like instead of thick syrup. 

3rd: Pour cream soda slowly into butterscotch cup. Stir or whisk until it is well mixed! 

*Hint: check bottom of cup to see if butterscotch is sitting at the bottom. You’ll notice the color change. If there is, stir some more & scrape the bottom gently. If there isn’t, it’s ready!

4th: Pour in a cool looking cup; a shorter cup is better because you can get some of the foam in every drink. 

5th: If you want, add a dollop of whipped cream to the top of the drink. It makes the drink a little creamy at the top instead of just being all foam. 

Drink up & enjoy!! 

Another option, which seemed to be popular in other recipes, is to add Vanilla Ice cream. However, when I used it, my drink just turned into a type of float. This is caused by the mixture of ice cream and the soda. If you want that, great! But you definitely taste more vanilla than butterscotch, so I wouldn’t dilute it if that’s what you want. 

Another Adult Option of course is to add alcohol. Vodka is probably best, but don’t do a crazy flavor unless it’s whipped cream… that worked for us! It was delicious. The only other thing I can picture spiking it with would be Rum. But that is entirely up to you. 

Make some more! Here is a 32 ounce recipe (could serve about 4 people). The steps are the same but here are the ingredient measurements.

-32 ounces of Cream Soda

– 2 tablespoons of Hot water

– 1/2 a cup of Butterscotch syrup

* Engorgio* 

Party size me! Haha this is how much I made on Halloween… and I think I needed more maybe! I did this recipe twice so that I had double. I used two whole cram Soda bottles, the big ones! I put x2 next to each ingredient so you know to double it or do it twice. 

– 64 ounces/ 2 liters of Cream Soda (big bottle) x2

– 1/4 cup of Hot water x2

– 1 cup of Butterscotch syrup x2

*Note: most measuring cups only go to 32 ounces. So, mix the butterscotch & Soda in segments that you want (doesn’t have to be exact) and pour it all into another vessel like an empty gallon water bottle. It’ll all come together. Pouring segments in also helps mix it. The foam will take up a lot of space! It’s ok. But DO NOT shake it to mix…. it will explode out the top! And that would be a gastly mess to clean up, without magic. 

Keep this drink in a fridge until it’s ready to drink OR go to a party. ๐Ÿ˜‰ It tastes better cold, just like at the park. 

There you have it! One of the fastest & easiest ways to make Butterbeer at home! It will be a hit at parties for years to come. I know my family loved it. It’s something kids can enjoy too, plus they feel extra cool since it has the word beer in it. Lol 

I hope you all enjoy it as much as I do. And to my friends, let’s have a party & I’ll make some more, cuz you ALL missed out tonight! Haha

Thanks for reading & please share with more Harry Potter fans around the world!
