Hello everyone!
Guess what? I've been tagged!!! My friend MovieCritic Tagged me, Thank You MovieCritic!!!!!!!!!!
This is going to be so much fun, here goes!!





The Rules:

3. Tag a few other blog people! Three, or four, or even twenty. :) Share the fun!
Be sure to let them know you've tagged them!

1. Harriet M. Welsch
         (From the Harriet the Spy Books)


Harriet is an 11 year-old-girl-spy, and irreverent rebel.
Harriet has a vivid Imagination, a bossy attitude, and an amazing ability to hide in one spot for hours while observing her targets.
(yes, that is really me.)

Harriet has amazing seriousness (not so much me), concentration, and ability to think fast and write faster.(sort-of me, I can't write to quickly, if I do you can't tell what anything says.)

Also, always depends on a routine(not so much),and ALWAYS WRITES WITH PEN.(definitely me.)


2. Sophie
       (from the book The BFG by Roald Dahl and Movie [2016])
                                                                                     
                   
 Sophie is an orphan, (I am not, but am sometimes lonely) she is very resilient and extremely brave. She is very bright, kind, smart, loving, friendly, and caring (I'm not all that). She is always thinking about others and wants to do what's right, not left.

P.S. You can see MovieCritic's review of this here: The BFG

3. Princess Fiona
         (from Shrek 1 [2001])



Princess Fiona is a strong, independent woman who has high expectations and wants everything to be perfect. (I get very upset when something special doesn't go the way I wanted.)

She is very down-to-earth, independent, driven and insightful. She is a loyal friend, sometimes has bad manners , and has great skill at rallying people. (I'm not very insightful, but everything else is really me.)

Also can sing so high she can make birds explode. (I try not to. ;D)


4. 

You are Marianne Dashwood of Sense & Sensibility! You are impulsive, romantic, impatient, and perhaps a bit too brutally honest. You enjoy romantic poetry and novels, and play the pianoforte beautifully. To boot, your singing voice is captivating. You feel deeply, and love passionately.

This is not all me but this is a very fun quiz and pretty accurate, please take it and tell me who you are! I am very like Marianne in some ways. I am a little bit impulsive, romantic, and impatient. I love all poetry and novels, not necessarily romantic ones, and my sisters and mom insist that I play the piano well, but I don't really. I can sort of sing. I feel very deeply and try to love passionately.

This is a really fun quiz, go take it Here.





And I tag:
Heidi
PioneerGirl
Abby P.


Thank you for reading and thank you MovieCritic at Movies Meet Their Match for tagging me, and thank you Amaris at The Storybook Journal for making this awsome tag! This was alot of fun, I hope my answers were okay. Thanks everyone!

Braids #6

Hello again!
Today we are going to do a different variation on the rope braid. It is very quick and easy and very similar to the other rope braid, so if you know how to do that you should be able to do this. Lets get going!

Rope Braid #2




1. Comb Hair.


2. Put in pony tail.


3. Divide pony into three sections.

4. Take the section on the right, and twist it (always twist to the right) only twist a little way down.


5. Now take the twisted part and cross it over the other two sections.


6. Take the new right section and do the same thing (steps 4. and 5.)


About Halfway


7. Repeat until you come to the bottom. (The reason you don't just twist the stands all the way is it doesn't come untwisted this way.)

                  You can have a long...



Or a short end.



8. Secure with a hair-tie and you're done!




I hope everyone had fun, Thanks for reading!

Braids #5

Hello, I'm back!
Today we're going to a rope braid. There are several variations on this braid, today we're going to do the basic (well the one I know best, and is very easy.) My explanation is that the rope braid was come up with after braiding ropes and they probably said hey, we could do this with our hair. This braid is very quick and easy, so lets get to it!


Rope Braid





1. Comb hair.


2. Put in ponytail.


3. Divide hair in pony in two.


4. Take the right section and divide that in two.


5. Take the two sections and twist them together.




6. When you get to the end, have the person you're doing this on hold it, because if you put a clip on the end it will most likely come untwisted.


7. Repeat on other side.

8. When you have two twisted strands, take the right strand and cross it over the other.


9. Continue twisting until you come to the end.




                  You can have a long...


Or a short end.



10. Secure with a hair-tie and you're done!



I hope everyone had fun, come back on Monday!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!!!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!!!!!!
St. Patrick's Day is a very big deal with me because I am Irish, and I am an Irish Dancer. Being an Irish dancer, on St. Patrick's Day, I get to: march in a parade, and I also preform at a big show with an Irish band and Irish dancers! So in getting ready for the big day, I'm going to be taking a break for last week (so very sorry I forgot to mention this before then ☹)  and this coming week. So sorry about taking a break, but here is some fun history and pictures related to St. Patrick's Day (or just Irish stuff).

About St. Patrick


St. Patrick was born in roman Britain in the forth century.
His father was a deacon and his grandfather was a priest in the christian church. 
At the age of sixteen he was kidnapped by the raiders and taken captive to Ireland as a slave. 
Apparently he was held somewhere on the west coast of Ireland possibly mayo, but the exact location is unknown. According to his confession he was told by god in a dream to flee from captivity to the coast  where he would board a ship and return to Britain. Upon returning he quickly joined the church in auxerre in Gaul and studied to be a priest.


 The Shamrock


The shamrock is a symbol of Ireland with St. Patrick having used it as a metaphor for the christian Trinity according to legend.
The name shamrock is derived from the Irish seamrog which is the diminutive version of the Irish word for clover (seamair) meaning simply little clover or young clover.

St. Patrick's Day
Saint Patrick's Day, or the Feast of Saint Patrick is a cultural and religious celebration held on 17 March, the traditional death date of Saint Patrick (c. AD 385–461), the foremost patron saint of Ireland.
 The day commemorates Saint Patrick and the arrival of Christianity in Ireland, and celebrates the heritage and culture of the Irish in general. 
Celebrations generally involve parades and festivals, céilithe (Irish traditional music sessions), wearing the color green, and for me Irish dancing!!! St. Patrick's Day parades began in North America in the 18th century but did not spread to Ireland until the 20th century. 

The Leprechaun
A leprechaun (Irish: leipreachán) is a type of fairy in Irish folklore. They are usually depicted as little bearded men, wearing a coat and hat, who partake in mischief. They are solitary creatures who spend their time making and mending shoes and have a hidden pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. If captured by a human, they often grant three wishes in exchange for their freedom. 
St. Patrick’s Day, you’re supposed to wear green to remember and honor Ireland.  If you’re not wearing green, you get pinched as a way to say “shame on you,”
  Apparently, leprechauns can’t be seen. They’re mischievous, so they pinch you so remember if you’re not wearing green, you’ll get pinched by a leprechaun. (;

Happy St. Patrick's Day to everyone! Celebrate St. Patrick, wear green, listen to Irish music, celebrate Ireland and any Irish in you, maybe see some Irish dancing, and just have fun!!!!!
Happy St. Patrick's Day!!!

2. Part in the middle.




3. Take the right side and take a little from the top and divide into three.



4. Cross the right section over the middle one.



5. Cross the left section over the new middle one.



6. Now before you cross the right over the middle again, take a small bit of hair from the side of the head (near ear) and join it with the right section , then cross it over.






7. Do the same thing with the left section.


Take from part.


Cross over.

8. Repeat steps 6. and 7. until neck.

9. You can stop here and end in a pony tail or continue in a regular braid.
