Movie Review: Annie

Release date: 19 December 2014

Rating: PG


When I saw the trailer for this movie, I was very skeptical. I enjoyed the old Annie movies, and a modern twist with a black Annie did not seem like a good idea. However, I was VERY wrong! I went to see this movie with a group of my friends, and I enjoyed it so much that I took my boyfriend to see it another day. The modern twist updated Annie into something kids in these generations will enjoy! The songs have been made somewhat modern, but are still the classic songs everyone knows. They also added the song 'Opportunity' which was beautiful! I have been listening to the soundtrack for this movie way too much ;) Kids these days do not seem to enjoy musicals as much as past generations did, so this movie helps them to love a great classic musical. :) Even though Annie is a foster kid and not an orphan, the modern twist really worked in this movie. I enjoyed myself both times I went to see this movie, and I recommend it to anyone who has not seen it! 

What did you think about the movie? Comment below!!! <3 Also, what other movies would you like me to review? Have a great day!

PandaHall.com Review!

Hey cupcakes! Today I will be writing a review for the website PandaHall (LINK HERE).

This website sells beads, jewelry findings, charms, and other jewelry making supplies. I found this website while I was searching for bezels to use with some resin jewelry I was making (tutorial will uploaded soon!). Bezels can be super expensive and all the craft stores in my area were selling one bezel for up to $8! I wanted to find cheaper ones that were still high quality and PandaHall has fulfilled my expectations!

Here is what I purchased:
Vintage Tibetan Style Alloy Heart Pendant Cabochon Bezel Settings X-TIBEP-M018-144AB-NF-2 10 of these heart bezels for $0.52! (Link)
 Vintage Tibetan Alloy Pendant Cabochon Bezel Settings X-TIBEP-M018-38AB-NF-210 of these cameo bezels for $0.59! (Link)
Brass Blank Pendant Cabochon Settings X-KK-B534-S-1 10 of these round bezels for $0.87! (Link)

With shipping, the total was less than $4! It was such a great deal! The package came in only a few weeks which is amazing for Chinese products. I love this website and will definitely be shopping here again in the near future!

If you are a new crafter or want to stock up on supplies, I suggest checking out their website!!!!!

Dorm Decor: DIY Photo Board

Hey cupcakes! Now that I am slowly preparing myself for college next fall, I have begun to make some items for my dorm. This photo board is sooooo easy and quick! I also made it for less than $2 because I had most of the supplies already! Whoa.
Here is what you will need:

-Black foam board from Dollar Tree ($1)
-Photos (the first 25 photos you print from Walmart are free when you sign up online!)
-Glue
-Mod Podge Matte
-Paintbrush
-Command poster strips

Instructions:

1. Buy the materials. Find pictures from Facebook, Instagram, etc. and send to your local Walmart. I bought thirty and only paid $0.80 with the first 25 free! (Go to the Walmart photo center's website to register)

2. Place foam board on a flat surface. 

3. Figure out how you are going to arrange your pictures. I was using a tutorial on Pinterest and she cut out squares. I decided to use many shapes so all of my pictures would fit. 

4. Cut out the pictures and glue onto board.

5. Mod podge over the pictures (it looks like you are ruining the photos but don't worry you won't!)

6. Hang with some Command poster strips! Enjoy!!!!!

D.I.Y. Iron Transfer Shirt!

I am obsessed with Olaf from Frozen. Phew I said it! ;) I have wanted an Olaf shirt for soooooo long now but I didn't want to spend a whole bunch of money on the $25 one from the Hot Topic Disney Collection. So, I decided to DIY one myself! Here is how you make a super simple iron on transfer shirt:

  1. Buy a shirt, tank top, bag, etc. from a craft store or clothing store. 
  2. Buy some iron on transfer sheets at Walmart, a craft store, etc. These can be expensive so try to use a coupon or find them on sale! (I got a package of 3 sheets on sale for only $3!)
  3. Find the image you want to put on your shirt. I recommend printing out the image in grayscale a few times to get the size perfect!
  4. Once you find the perfect size, put the transfer paper in your printer and print!
  5. Follow the rest of the instructions for your particular type of transfer paper. For the brand I used you had to cut out the design, peel away the back, and then iron on with an iron. Super easy!
  6. Ta-da! A cute shirt!!!!!!!!!!!! :)
Don't be afraid to try a new DIY! I was a little scared to do the iron on transfers because it looked too difficult, but it was extremely easy and fun! Just MAKE SURE TO FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS and your shirt will turn out perfect every time! :) Here is the Olaf image I used on my shirt:

From jewelry to purses to clothing I almost died from Disney heaven. I strongly recommend going to Hot Topic to check out their Disney stuff or visit their website: LINK. Have a great and magical day! ;)

How I Make Money As a High Schooler

Many people are looking to make easy money right? Well, this post is going to be dedicated to how I (as a high school student) makes some extra cash! Hope you enjoy!

1. Survey sites:

I currently use four different survey sites. These sites are super easy to use and in exchange for taking surveys, you get cash sent to your Paypal or to your home by check! Here are the links to the sites I use and trust:

Opinion Outpost: LINK
               This site has some fun surveys that you receive points for. After getting 100 points you get $10 to your Paypal! :) 

PaidViewpoint: LINK
                This site has quick surveys that you get money for completing. You must get $15 before you can cash out though!

Survey Savvy: LINK
                This site is my least favorite of the four because there aren't many surveys you can take. This sends you the money by check.

Instant Cash Sweepstakes: LINK
                 You can complete 5 surveys every 3 hours and you can win cash! It is just like playing games! This pays by PayPal. 


2. Selling books:
There is a book store where I live that guys used books. For someone who has soooooo many books, I have made quite a bit of money back by selling them to this store. Check around to bookstores near you that might buy used books!

3. Extra Work/Odd Jobs:
My parents pay me to do things like weed, clean the cars, etc. They only pay me $5 an hour but it is still money I didn't have! Check to see if your family or neighbors have odd jobs that you can do! :)

4. Babysitting:
Babysitting is a very easy way to make money! You also get to meet some pretty awesome kids!!!!! ;)

5. Save money: 
I like to save the money and gift cards I receive for my birthday and Christmas! It's not really a way to make money but you do get the money by saving it. :)

If you have other ways to make money, please comment below!!!!!! :)
