Hillsborough Country Park Review
Hello, everyone! This post has been a long time coming, but this kind of content takes forever to make, so thanks for waiting. Hiking is one of my favorite pass times, and there are tons of parks I've had on my to-do list. Luckily, I've been able to squeeze in some park time at least once a week to bring you this.
5 Unique Crystals That Make Perfect Gifts
It can be hard to shop for a crystal lover. There are tons of terms on the market describing crystals, not to mention the dozens of properties each has. Chances are, your person already has some of the classics like Rose Quartz, Amethyst, Clear Quartz, and Carnelian. Don't get me wrong, those make great gifts, but I do have some niche recommendations. Briefly, I have talked about gifting crystals to a loved one. I'll leave those posts linked here and here. For now, I want to talk about some unique crystals that make perfect gifts.
Crystals I Don't Want Right Now
There are some crystals that I don't plan on adding to my collection right now. Can you actually believe that this is a sentence being typed out write now? Don't get me wrong, I love crystals and collecting them. Truthfully, there are some crystals out there that aren't for everyone.

I hope they work out for you because I don't see it happening for me. Now, let's get into the crystals I will not be buying any time soon.
Lenovo Chromebook 2-in-1 Review
Hey, everyone! I mentioned a little while ago that I got a new laptop. For context, my 2015 Mac reached a point where it would no longer update and repeatedly told me I had no storage when I knew I did. So, I got a new laptop for the holidays! It's a Lenovo Chromebook 2-1, and I thought I'd leave a review for anyone interested. I'm no tech expert by any means, but I do have a few notes I wanted to share. Also, it goes without saying, but I am not sponsored by this product!
I Made A Crystal Jar
Hey, everyone! A while ago, I made a crystal jar! This term can encompass a wide variety of items, so here's my description. Crystal jars are small crafts where you put crystals and other ingredients in a jar to manifest a desired outcome. It had been a long time since I made one of these jars, in all honesty. I must have gotten caught up in other things. A crystal store I was visiting offered a jar with a wide selection of crystal chips, so I caved.
Six Habits I Wish I Learned in School
In school, I remember learning that it takes twenty-one days to build a habit. That was the first and last thing the school system ever taught me about creating routines to follow. Today, I wanted to share some of my favorite patterns I weave into everyday life. It is important to mention that these habits might work for me, but not for you. I just went down my list and picked a few that I wish I had learned in school.
Updates For My Blog
Hey, everyone! So, I know that this isn't a massive blog by any means, but I have been pretty consistent with my posting. The last time I posted was nine days ago, and I wanted to tell you why. I also wanted to give you some updates about the page!
2022 New Years Resolutions
Personally, I never really liked the idea of long-term goals, especially those set at the very beginning of the year. It probably has something to do with 2020 absolutely destroying my intentions with everything that happened. I mean, how could you possibly account for all the crazy things that could happen? As I have gotten older, I've realized that having plans and aspirations throughout the year can be helpful. Even if I don't hit all my goals, at least I can say that I thought ahead and set those expectations for myself. Here are some ideas I've had brewing throughout 2021 and want to get done.
High Maintenance Crystals
Let's make one thing clear: I don't seriously have a vendetta against these crystals. Everyone gravitates towards different crystals, and if these are your favorites, you have good taste! In case you're new, I work in a crystal store, and I thought it would be fun to talk about some crystals that get under my skin (literally.) These crystals are high maintenance and frustrating to work with.
An Amateur's Guide To Bookbinding
New fixation, everyone! Finally, my username has relevance again (/j.) I started bookbinding as a hobby pretty recently. I'm still a beginner, but I thought it would be fun to share my experience and my process. I've made seven hardcover books, and I hope to make more. A quick side note, this post would not be possible without the phenomenal tutorials I've watched. The main one I use, especially in regards to sewing the pages, will be linked below. Also, this is advice that works for me based on my own experience. If this doesn't help, find something that works for you!
Designs I Want In My Dreamhouse
I've been binging realtor shows again. If you've been with me for a while, you'll know that I love home design. For the longest time, my dream job was interior design. Seeing these beautiful homes made me think about all the features I would love in my best-case scenario-dream home. Some of these range from simple decoration ideas, while others are architectural designs.
