Heyyy, cupcakes! The marvelous Bayance nominated me for the Avocado Tag-which is perfect ’cause I looooooove avocados. (zero-carb, high-fat, super-delicious, lotsa-hyphens).

The Questions;

1} What things do you like doing the most during summer?

I love so much about summer, but the three biggies are going on vacation (which you can read about here), reading in my treehouse, and sleeping outside under the stars. (not every night, I do have a bedroom, don’t worry).

What’s your favorite summer drink?

Raspberry lemonade, or iced tea mixed with lemonade (delicious, by the way)

Do you like avocados?

HECK YES!! *ahem*. I love avocados, as I stated above, especially in salads, in smoothies or plain with balsamic vinegar poured over them.

Do you like spicy food? If yes, what’s your fave spicy food? If not, why not lol?

Ummm…it depends of the level of spiciness. I love spicy BBQ sauce and spicy Italian sausages, but if you want to watch someone eat a Mexican ghost pepper, don’t look at me.

What’s the last thing you’ve eaten?

A cucumber slice dipped in ranch dressing. However, I’ve got half a pepper on it’s way to my mouth.

Last song you’ve listened to?

Waving Through A Window from Dear Evan Hansen. It practically describes my social life in a bunch of metaphors.

On the outside, always looking in

Will I ever be more than I’ve always been?

‘Cause I’m tap-tap-tapping on the glass

I’m waving through a window

I try to speak, but nobody can hear

So I wait around for an answer to appear

‘Cause I’m watch-watch-watching people pass

I’m waving through a window

I know, it’s a sad song, and I’m blithely cheerful. Sorry.

Tell us a funny anecdote you’ve had

Okay, so last year, in my dance school’s production of The Nutcracker, I was an understudy for Party Scene (the first act, where all the children are running around making mischief with Clara and Fritz). There’s one part of the (very long) dance where everyone skips in a circle around Franz, who then pulls Clara out and dips her. But one time, when I was filling in for someone, the girl playing Franz accidentally grabbed ME. And she looked down at me, and I looked up and we both were absolutely horrified for a second, so she let go and I nearly fell. And then we started laughing hysterically, because a) I was understudying a party BOY, and b) that moment of horror was hilarious in retrospect. It took a full two minutes to restore order, because even the teacher was laughing, the whole thing was so ridiculous and funny.

Would you rather be a zebra with rainbow stripes or a zebra whose stripes glow in the dark?

I’d rather have glow-in-the-dark stripes, because attention IRL makes me uncomfortable because I’m painfully awkward in real life.

Can you draw a shark with your opposite hand (the hand you don’t use to write nor draw)? Show a picture!


I’m right-handed, so I did this with my left- that is, I tried…the thing I find funny about this is that fish in front of the shark looks so sad and droopy, haha. Not gonna be hard for the shark to eat…

What are 3 things that make you laugh?

  • My cat’s antics
  • Jumping on my friend Nina’s trampoline and screaming ”SWEET MONKEY FRITTERS!!”
  • The song Albuquerque by Weird Al

Answer one of the questions I was asked!


Question+Answer|Summer Edition


Hey, there, guys! It’s finally here-my first Q&A post. I got some awesome questiosn form all of you, so let’s just jump right in.

Mary E. asked;

Q.If you had 1,000 dollars to spend, what would you buy?

A. Hmmmm….probably get a .com domain for TTC, get a purebred siamese (I love siamese cats, they’re awesome), redo my room, and then  if there was any money left over, probably use the rest on my doll hobby.

Q.What is your favorite dog breed?

A. I’m not really a dog person (nothing wrong with them, I just like cats better), but I really like yorkies.

Q.What is your favorite piece of clothing in your closet?

A. My t-shirt that has my dance school’s logo on it.

Q.Do you like doing laundry?

A. Noooooooooo!!

Q.What would be your top 3 things to see in Paris?

A. OK, to be honest, if I was in Paris I’d probably just spend all my time eating cheese and chocolate and gelato.

Q.Fave dessert: ice cream, cake, chocolate, or cheesecake?

A. Can it be chocolate cake with ice cream?

Q.If you could be any bird, which one would you be?

A. If I was any bird, I think I’d be a parakeet; insanely chatty and sometimes awkward, but if I could be any bird, I’d love to be a hawk.

Q.If you could meet anyone, dead or alive, who would you pick?

A. Does this person have to exist? Because I’d love to meet Foaly. But I assume you mean an actual person, and in that case, maybe Misty Copeland.

A. Kerry Weber.


Liz-Home With The Hummingbirds asked;

Q. What are your answers to the questions you asked us??? 😉

A. 1) I love pineapple on pizza. 2) They both have bills, but only one has feathers. 3) I dyed my hair red.

Q. What is your favorite food?

A. Cake! And kale chips.

Q. Why did you start your blog?

A. Honestly, it was because I felt like I was talking wayyy too much on my doll blog, and people kept asking if I had a personal blog.

A. Every Christmas Eve, my family goes to Midnight Mass, and then we all read The Night Before Christmas before going to bed (at 1 am, no less)

Q. What are your plans for this summer?

A. Dancing en pointe!! And swimming a lot, I guess, My summer is pretty lowkey this year.

AGsInAlaska asked;

Q. What do you hate the most about ballet?

A. Oh, that’s hard. I love almost everything about ballet, but…I really hate the way people start acting sometimes when they get a big role and are suddenly super conceited. I think most people will agree with me.
Q. Favorite food?

A. Cake! And Kale chips.

Bella asked

Q. Who are your favorite celebrities?

A. Honestly, I’m super out of touch with the celebrity world, so….I have no idea.

Q. Who are your favorite YouTubers?

A. I really love Good Mythical Morning and StudioC

Q. What made you want to start a blog?

A. So I could rant about my life, I suppose.

Q. What are some of the things on your summer bucket list?

A. Here are a couple of highlights;

1) Go sit on a park bench somewhere wearing an LEP t-shirt, reading Artemis Fowl, and see if anyone notices the correlation.

2) Sleep out in my treehouse one night

3) Find a banister to slide down somewhere


Thanks so much to everyone who asked questions! I had so much fun answering them.

And now your answers to the questions I asked you;

What’s the difference between a duck and an insurance company?

Julia said; “Well, a duck can swim when it sinks but I don’t really know if an insurance company can.”

Haha, awesome, Julia! Very true!

Opinions of pineapple on pizza?

Bella said; ”I don’t discriminate on pizza toppings, so I think that pineapples on pizza are good…just as long as there aren’t too many!”

I agree, Bella!

If you could dye your hair, what color would you choose?

Liz said; ”I don’t think I want to dye my hair. If I had to, I would just do a darker brown than it is now. 😉 ”

Sounds super pretty, Liz!

Thanks again, guys!



Moi Beach Trip

Moi Beach Trip.png

Well, hello there, cupcakes!

Two weeks ago, whilst I disappeared (sorry again), I spent an epic week at the Outer Banks of North Carolina…mostly on the beach.

I also spent a lot of time toting my camera so I could brag on social media about the awesome week I was having (kidding, kidding, I’m not trying to brag).


This is the beach house we stayed at. It was really nice and roomy, which was great because my family goes stir-crazy in small places.


View of the other beach houses.



I was trying to get a decent picture of the moon, but it was actually really hard. I guess because the moon glows it confused my camera?


I’m not quite sure why I like this picture, maybe because it’s sort of tumblr-esque?

And now, beach pictures!


The ocean! Pleasingly blurry. 😉DSCF9630My very sandy feet. I get my pointe shoes soon, and I’ve been getting pictures of me feet while they aren’t completely gnarled and terrifying. (pointe will be worth it though)DSCF9635

My shoes, which most of the time were not worn.


More ocean.DSCF9624

Even more ocean.


Opposite shells.


Are you planning to go on vacation this year?




Question+Answer|Ask Away


Hey, guys! Sorry I disappeared again, this week was tech week for my ballet school’s production of Cinderella, and yesterday and today I was there for somewhere on the order of 8 hours.

Anyway, this is just a quick post to let you know that I’m doing a Q&A! I tried this on my other blog but nobody asked any questions, so I’m trying again here. Ask me anything, and I’ll answer! That’s not all, though. My Q&A has a twist; I’ll ask you some questions, and my favorites will be posted with the Q&A.

Summer Questions;

Opinions of pineapple on pizza?

What’s the difference between a duck and an insurance company?

If you could dye your hair, what color would you choose?

One more thing-I’ve been a little uninspired lately, so I’d love some post requests!

Ask away, cupcakes!
