Summer Reading


I'm back from Korea! And now that I have finished all my AP classes, AP exam, and other final exams, I have a lot more time to crochet and read. I recently got a Barnes and Noble gift card from a sweet girl from church, and I bought some books to read on my past recent trip to South Korea. The first book I bought was Lord of the Flies by William Golding. My brother read this book when he was in high school, and he highly recommended this book to me. I am super excited to read this book, as I heard many other good reviews on it. :)


The last book I bought is the Boy in Striped Pyjamas by John Boyne. I heard a lot of great reviews on this book, and on my trip to South Korea, I read it on the plane and at the hotel. I'll admit that I cried after I finished it. :P Without spoiling too much, the book is about the son of a leader of a concentration camp during World War II. This little boy finds a young Jewish boy at the fence of the concentration camp, and the two become friends. After reading this book, I highly recommend it to children of ages 10+. Although it is very simply written, it is an entertaining book that will be an excellent choice to read during the summer. :)

The next book I am going to be reading this summer is Animal Farm by George Orwell. I am currently half-way through this book, and I am really enjoying it. It is both educational and entertaining. I find the animals' argunments in the book to be very convincing. If I were an animal in that farm, I could definitely see myself following Napoleon stupidly. :P

The last book I am going to reading this summer is A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens. I have already read this book for school, but I wanted to re-read it because I really enjoyed this book. It is a bit difficult to understand, but once you read it carefully, it is a beautiful story. I read it with my mom, and we both shipped Charles Darnay and Lucie Manette. :)


In addition to reading lots of books, I have been trying to crochet and knit more. I am planning to post an update on my Creating a Super Mario World project. Stay tuned for that post! :D

Until next time, happy crocheting and crafting!

Crocheting Essentials

Hi!

For today's post, I will be showing y'all my crocheting essentials. 

My first essential are my crochet hooks! I have been trying to collect all of the clover amour hooks, but I have not been able to go yarn shopping in a while. :( I will try to buy all of them soon!! :DI keep all of my Clover Amour Hooks in this adorable Rilakkuma pencil case. 

Next essential of mine is my pink bear tape measurer. If you can remember, I bought this at Daiso and blogged about it here. I only use this if I am crocheting a piece of clothing or a hat.


Scissors and jumbo needles are HUGE essentials to crocheting anything. 

My last essential is of course yarn!! :)

That's it for today's post. I hope you liked it. 

Happy crocheting and crafting!

April Favourites 2016

2016 is flying by way too quickly. I can't believe it is already May! In today's post, I wanted to show y'all some of the stuff I used through the month of April.

1. EOS mint lip balm
I won this lip balm in a game at a baby shower. :P Ever since I won it, I have been using it a lot. I already had an EOS lip balm in Honeysuckle, but I used it all up. This lip balm both smells and tastes really good. :P


2. Panda Sticky Notes 
If you can remember, I bought a ton of kawaii sticky notes from Daiso a while ago, and ever since I bought them, I have been using them non-stop. I put them in my books, notebooks, binders, and calendar. They are adorable and really affordable! :)

3. Benefit Roller Lash
I have really short eyelashes unlike my siblings and mom. Thanks dad for giving me your monolid and short eyelashes! lol jk. 아빠 사랑해요!! Even though my eyelashes are short and grow straight down, Benefit Roller Lash makes them long and holds a curl really well. I got mine from Sephora.

4. Friendship Bracelets
In April, I have been making a ton of friendship bracelets. I especially love to stack them; their colours look so pretty together! In the picture, I am wear one bracelet that I made with Patons Grace mercerized cotton yarn, and the other one is a Mikaylove inspired bracelet that I made with gold chains and a suede cord. The third bracelet was given to me by my brother, and I have been wearing it almost everyday for the past two years. 

5. Rilakkuma pencil case
Though school has made it difficult to crochet, I have been crocheting a lot this month. For my favourite hooks, which are the Clover Amour hooks, I have been storing them in this adorable Rilakkuma pencil case that I bought from Amazon. I am not too sure if Amazon still sells it, but I found one similar to the one that I have here.


Favourite Book(s) of the month:
1. Lord of the Flies (William Golding)
2. Tale of Two Cities (Charles Dickens)

Favourite Music:
I did not add many songs to my playlist this month. All songs are available on Spotify.
1. Cheerleader (PTX cover)
2. No Makeup (Zion T.)
3. Castle on a Cloud (Les Miserables)

I hope you liked this post! I hope y'all have a great week!

Happy crocheting and crafting!
