Starting Over

Hey there, 
So, so far all I've gotten are positives responses, which was what I was hoping for. ;) Now what I'm trying to decide...I've been thinking about posting more about life rather than some of the other things I've been posting, and I was thinking about starting a whole new blog and starting over. This time though, I'm going to announce it. I hope that all makes sense. If you're interested in reading my new blog though, leave a comment.

Hi

Hey there, 
I haven't really posted in forever, but sometimes I miss blogging. I can't decide whether to start a new blog, or just close my blogs and try again maybe in the future sometime. I'm not really sure if anybody really missed reading my blog, because I never even heard from anyone asking about why my blog just disappeared off the net. 
Anyway...
thought I'd write a post and see the response. I'm really not even sure if blogging is still in my schedule, but I might as well try if I miss it. 
~Katie
So i guess just comment down below if you're interested in reading this blog.

Sweet Sixteen Part 3

Hey everyone! 
I finally had a sleepover for my sweet 16! Yes, I know it's 7 months overdue, but things kept getting in the way, but we finally had the opportunity to do it this past Friday! 
I had an awesome time, and we literally stayed up all night! 
The theme was Disney Princesses, so we watched Aladdin, Cinderella, Tangled, Brave, Frozen, Beauty and the Beast, The little mermaid, and the Princess and the Frog! I think that's it....we had 18 hours to fill! 
The whole night was full of crafts, movies, eating, and games! We had to keep ourselves awake somehow! 
We made these super cute Tangled lanterns, from obviously the movie Tangled. Hers turned out very well, mine broke though, haha! ;P
We got to order pizza, and I bought a few too many snacks....I got us each a container of cotton candy, lots of purple popcorn (this stuff was SOOO sweet, ack!), and cupcakes, and of course some caffeine! 
We were so stuffed, that we didn't get to it all the snacks! ;P 
We probably played, like 10 board games, all multiple times! By dawn, we were so exhausted.
I know this post is kinda short, but there's not too much else to add! I don't have any pictures, sadly, but I had an awesome time! 
Thanks for stopping by!
Do you like sleepovers? 
What posts would you like me to do in the future?
Have a sparkly day!
~Katie

Thanks for signing up!

Hey everyone! 
Thanks for signing up for the exchange and you should be receiving an email really soon with the address to send to! :) 
I should hopefully be posting more, but I've kinda run out of ideas!

P.S I FINALLY had my sweet 16 birthday sleepover this past Friday! After 7 months of trying to plan it! ;P

Girly Exchange!

Hey everyone!
So I got some good ideas for an exchange! I've concluded I'm going to have a girly exchange!!
Here's what to include:
1 lipgloss or lipbalm something!
1 fun snack, like candy or something!
and 1 fun hair accessory!
Seems pretty simple! Now here's a VERY important rule...everything HAS to be in a package!! The lip balm can't be left loose, or the hair accessories...everything needs to be in packaging. 
Sign Up

In case if you don't know how it works, I'll pair you up with another girl, and you'll exchange stuff with her! It really depends on how many people I have sign up whether or not you'll be sending to the same girl as you've received from. Any questions?
Thanks! I can't wait!
Have a sparkly day! 
~Katie
P.S One week from today is when sign up ends!

Fun Exchange Ideas

Hey everyone!
So I've been considering doing an exchange on my blog of some sort, but I'm not sure what...
I'm thinking something inexpensive to ship. Like tea is really fun to do, but I've done tea exchanges in the past, and I was hoping to try something new!
Does anybody have any ideas or requests??? 
If so, comment below and let me know! ;P
Have a sparkly day!

Ashley's Guest Post: Blueberry Banana Overnight Oats



Hey everyone! Today I'm going to share Ashley's guest post! Thank you, Ashley, for the wonderful guest post, and I suggest everyone go check out her blog and her store! :) 


Hello there!
I want to say "thank you" to Katie for allowing me to write a guest post for her blog. ​I have a delicious and healthy recipe to share with you all, which I do hope you'll try.
Blueberry Banana Overnight Oats
Ingredients: container with lid, milk, oats, honey, vanilla, blueberries, banana
Instructions: This is a recipe which you can be very flexible with, so I'm not going to list certain measurements. To start, find a container, it can be large or small, with a lid. If you're using a small container, fill it about 3/4 of the way with milk.
Next, add a few spoonful's of oats. Make sure there's not more oats than milk.


Add 2-4 drops of vanilla and stir. 


Next add honey. 


 You can add as little or as much honey as you'd like. Stir that together, and add blueberries. Squish the blueberries in the mixture with your spoon. The milk will turn a little blue. 


If you desire, add a few pieces of banana, and fill the rest of the container with blueberries. If you don't want banana, just fill it up with blueberries.



Drizzle with honey and put the lid on. Let it sit overnight and eat it in the morning, or just let it sit for a couple hours. 


This is a quick and easy breakfast, and I hope you all enjoy it. :) If you make this recipe, let me know how it turns out. :D

I hope you all have a very good and godly day!
Love in Christ,
Ashley



Thanks again, Ashley!
Have a sparkly day!

Sparkly Ambitions 1st Scavenger Hunt

Hey everyone! 
So now it's time for the scavenger hunt!! 
I only have 3 questions for it....and they are definitely not the best, but I was originally planning to sneak in answers over the past few months, but I hadn't been blogging so....these are the questions you have to answer! 
I won't be posting any of your comments until the giveaway ends which will be....Monday! You have until then to answer these questions! Now remember, IMPORTANT, you have to have notified 5 people of the giveaway...if you didn't then go back on my previous post and do that! ;) 

Here are the questions...I'll have hints at the end if you can't find it....
1. It's kind of a tradition for us to go to Taco Bell on "insert day here". (Everybody knows I love Taco Bell!!
2. What's one thing I did on my sweet 16? 
3. Name one fact about me from my August 2015 10 facts about me? (To be honest, my 10 facts about me probably needs to be updated, but....I'm not going to do that yet!)

Bonus Question!!
What's one of my favourite book series? It can be something I've read...or I'm reading right now, and if you don't know feel free to take a guess!

Everybody gets one bonus entry for each question correctly answered...

A real quick note! Does anybody have Instagram? I just got it yesterday! ;P 





And now for the hints if you must have them!!
For the first question, look in the post titled "Sleepovers and Taco Bell"
And the other two questions are really self explanatory, go to one of my Sweet 16 posts and go to my ten facts about me in August post. ;) 
Go ahead and start getting extra entries and the drawing will be on Monday! Good luck!
Have a sparkly day!
~Katie
P.S Just a quick note, if you enter the giveaway, you are entered for all the prizes!
P.P.S Even if you haven't emailed 5 people there is still time! Just comment and let me know you've done that I can still enter you in the drawing! ;)

Now I told you I had a surprise for you, and I do!! I'm having.............................................




A GIVEAWAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I haven't had that many giveaways on my blog because I don't really have the money to purchase and ship a ton of stuff, but this time I decided I could make an exception and buy a couple things! This giveaway is going to be a little different than most, but trust me, it'll be fun!!

Now for some reason, the pictures on the website are absolutely AWFUL, so I'm just going to have to include a link for you to look at the prize! 
There will be three winners, the third place winner will have the opportunity to do a guest post. To be honest, I'd be happy for almost anyone to do a guest post on my blog, but......
The second place winner will receive these super cute nail wraps! I actually ordered some for myself too! Here they are...
Nail Wraps (They are the bottom ones, the aurora borealis ones.) 

And first place winner will receive this beautiful necklace!
Necklace (The style is #8. That should be easy to find! It's the second one in the slideshow.) 

Sorry I couldn't include pics, but when I tried to insert them, they were incredibly blurry! ;P 
Ok, so here's how to enter....I'm going to do a couple of other posts on entries, but to actually QUALIFY, you have to share my blog (through email or whatever) with at least five friends that have NOT read my blog (that you don't know of at least!) or share it on your blog. 
Sounds easy enough! 
Comment below and let me know that you've shared it! Now, you HAVE to do this to be able to get the other entries. Those will be coming up in a few days, and I have a fun way I'm going to do it! ;P'
You have until , hmmm..., let's say Monday, until I post the next post, so start sharing, and don't forget to comment or you won't be entered!

Music Obsessions #1- AURORA

Hey everyone!
Here's my new series, Music Obsession! As you can see, I chose AURORA. She's not that well known of a singer, but she's definitely amazing. She has such a unique voice. She has many different songs, but these four are my favourites. Below it, I put the inspiration behind the song, quoted from her in interviews. 
Please check out some of them! :) 



The song is about having the animal instinct inside you come to life. Running with them, joining them – the instinct taking over, giving you freedom and making you forget about your human self and all things we humans keep around us in the modern society.
I think humans need to let go a bit more, shake their bodies more often, like the animals do.. It’s a beautiful thing really.
Sometimes when you look at the world, and you see what we’ve done to it, the way many of us hurt the world we live in, innocent animals, even our own kind! And that kind of makes you want to follow the wolves instead. At least for one night.





‘Conqueror’ is about a world that is kind of falling apart around you, and you’re looking for a conqueror to save you. But you’re looking for the conqueror in someone else, which I think is something you should not do. You should find the conqueror in yourself first, and be your own hero. If you stand strong, then you will stand for a bit longer.




“I call myself a warrior even though I’ve never held a sword or anything else that can hurt people physically, but people have fights in their lives, small and and big. And it’s a nice thought, that people can walk around and call themselves warriors, which they should do, whether they’re a fan of me or not. It’s strong. It’s important to remember that, how strong we are.”




“Black Water Lilies was a dream I had. The melody was playing in the background. And I was dreaming that there was a hand, and I grabbed it, and it took me underwater. And there was a river, under the water, running down. And I floated on the river, under the water, and I came to this magic place with lots of black water lilies – floating on the water – which was underneath the water. It was a very strange dream. When I woke up I ran straight to the piano and wrote the song.”


Which one was your favourite? :) 
Have a sparkly day!
~Katie
P.S Some of you have noted that the side bar is a bit hard to read, and I tried to fix that but it wanted to change all the text colour, even for the posts. And I couldn't really find a colour that was bright enough for the side bar, and wasn't blinding on the posts. :/

Now that I'm finally back to blogging regularly and my first blogiversary is coming up, I would like to give you guys a survey to take! (This is not the surprise I have for you guys for my blogiversary...that's next week!! ;)) 
It should only take a couple of minutes, and I would REALLY appreciate it if you could take it real fast and give me some advice on what you would like to see on my blog in the next year. Please keep in mind that this is a girly blog, so if you would like to see more outfit posts in the future, please specify, or nail art, or whatever! :)

Hard Candy Velvet Mousse Matte Lip Colour Review

Hey everyone! 
I'm back with a new blog post! This time I'm doing a review on a recent lip product I bought. It's called Hard Candy Velvet Mousse matte lip colour. I had actually watched a YouTube video on it, and decided I wanted to test it out! I really like the Hard Candy brand, not only because it has many unique products (including colourful mascara!), but it's also cruelty-free, which is always a plus! ;) 
Let's get right into the review! I got it in Cherry Blossom (That was just my favourite of the selection, but they have a few more to choose from ;)) 
I REALLY like this product! The colour is very pigmented, and it is incredibly long lasting. Like I can put it on in the morning, and it'll still be there in the evening when I remove my make up, even through eating and drinking. It also has a very sweet scent! Now it is a LITTLE bit stickier than I would like though. It can transfer a little bit, like if you wipe your mouth on a napkin, it's going to come off. It really surprised me that it stayed as long as it did! It does hold to it's promise of being matte, minus a tad bit of stickiness! The only other thing I think they could have changed about this product is the brush. To me, it's just awful! It's just not firm enough to really apply it evenly, and it doesn't have that much of a point at the end, so it's not the easiest to apply it to the cupid's bow. Other than these minor points, it's a really good product! I haven't found a lot of lip products I'm that big of a fan of as I am this. It even came in a cute little box! 



This is the cute little box it came in! 





This is a swatch of the colour on my hand, it's not the best picture, but at least you can tell the colour!




Here's the brush it came with. As you can see, it wouldn't be the easiest to apply a colour as pigmented as this just because one little mess up, and you gotta take out that makeup remover! ;P 



Overall, I rate this product 4 stars! I really like how it almost stains your lips with the colour hours after you remove it. Like, you don't have to actual be wearing lip stick to have pretty pink lips! ;P My hand is actually stained a little from where I did the swatch, haha!
So anyway, have you ever tried this product?
What are some of your favourite matte lip products?
Would you like to see more reviews like this in the future?
Have a sparkly day!

Hair Dye Fun/Surprises!

Hey everyone! 
Today I have some unique hair dye ideas I got from Pinterest (Yes, of course, Pinterest!)! Now, chances are I won't ever dye my hair, but it's still fun to see some of the interesting styles that people have come up with. Normally I just like to use coloured mascara or hair extensions to get my coloured hair. ;P It's seriously hard to choose a favourite out of these! I love them all, like a lot! ;) 












Which one's your favourite? I really like the pastel rainbow, blue, and purple ones! If you got your hair dyed one of these, which one would you choose?
Now onto my surprise.....................................
I have a big surprise for my blogiversary coming up in a couple of weeks!! You don't get to know it yet, but I have it all planned and I'm really looking forward to it!! I was debating whether or not to go ahead and start the "blogiversary celebration" now, or to wait until it comes up.... ;P I hope you guys are excited about it, and stay tuned for my surprise coming up soon! ;)
Have a sparkly day!

Nail Art Tutorial #1- Beach

Hey everyone!
Today I'm here to share with you an awesome nail art idea (A beach nail art!) I discovered on Pinterest the other day! Ok, well more like a few months ago, and I just now got to doing it...
Anyway, it's very simple, and doesn't require a ton of fancy tools to get the design right. Like with any nail art, it does take a little while to do, mainly because of all the drying time. It IS suppose to look a little rough, because they are waves, and I wanted to give them a bit of texture! Let's get started! 


It's not that important which colours you use, as long as they are similar to the beach-y kinda colours. In case if you're wondering though...
From left to right the colours are.....
OPI Nail Lacquer in No Room for the Blues
NYC Long wearing nail enamel in Tudor City Teal 
Pure Ice in Bare it All (This is a sparkly gold)
and Julep in Shelly
The nail art pen above it is Kiss in black. 



I thought I'd also share this good dupe for the Julep colour. They're both practically the same colour, but the Julep one is $14, when I got the Color Craze at the Dollar Tree. The only difference is a SLIGHT difference in colour, and the pigmentation. The Julep one is more pigmented and only takes two coats, compared to Color Craze's 3 coats. 

Now on to the tutorial! Sadly, I don't have any pictures to share with you because I wasn't even planning on doing a tutorial until today. 
1. Paint your whole nails with your choice of light blue (like Julep or Color Craze).
2. Next, after it's completely dry, apply a one layer of a darker blue shade, a little ways up from the bottom of your nail. 
3. Just above the dark blue, apply a layer of sea green. It's fine if the colours blend a little. In fact, it may even look better!
4. On the tips of your nail, apply a glittery gold colour. This is the sand!
5. Finally, this last step is optional, draw a couple of birds with a black nail art pen, to the bottom of the nail, aka, the sky. 
TA-DA! 


Here's the finished product! I hadn't cleaned it up yet, in case if you notice it's a little messy on the edges! ;P 

There you have it! I'd love for you to try this design out, and maybe even send me some pictures of it, and I'll even put it on my blog! 
Would you like to see more tutorials in the future?
Do you like nail art?
Have a sparkly day!

BIG ANNOUNCEMENT!

Hey everyone!
Guess what?? I'm back!
I've made the decision, now that it's been a few months, to continue blogging on my original blog! I've been blogging on another blog, which I'm not announcing the other's blog's name or anything. I'm hopefully going to be back to posting regularly about the stuff I use to most about, nail art, Pinterest, and what not, and I may include a few new stuff such as book reviews, and maybe even a few product reviews!
Anyway, I'm glad to be back, and should have a new fun post up soon!
Any requests for post ideas??
Have a sparkly day!

I'm Leaving.

Hey everyone!
I have news.
I've decided I'm leaving Sparkly Ambitions blog. I feel a little sad leaving now, but I feel like I need a fresh start.
I don't really want to share my new blog's link with anyone either.
I've been judged in one way or another by most of you, and I don't mean that in a mean way, but it's what I need to say. I feel like I just need to get a fresh start somewhere else. 
I don't want to be judged on my beliefs, what I wear, or my lifestyle anymore. 
It's been really fun doing Sparkly Ambitions for the past year, but now it's time to move on. :)
Have a sparkly life!

Pinterest #3- Nail Art: Spring Edition

Hey everyone!
How have you been?
So today I have a few Pinterest Nail Art inspirations to share with you! These are kind of more on the spring side. I'm really into nail art, so I have quite a few ideas saved, but I'm only going to share the spring-ish ones today! ;) 



I REALLY love these!! I don't normally wear matte nail polish, but these are actually super cute! 


Ooooo, I love the blue-green colour so much!!




Turtles!!!



I actually think I can do this one, assuming I have the right colours. ;) 


I've done a pineapple nail art before, but this one looks a BIT more advanced than I would normally like just because of all the small pineapples, haha !



I'm not much of a nail artist, but I know I could definitely do a few of these !;P 
Which one is your favourite? I can't even choose a favourite!! They're all so cute!
Would you like me to post pictures if I try them? :) 
Have a sparkly day!

Follow Up Post~The Real Me

Hey everyone! 
I'm sure most, if not all, of you have read my most recent post "The Real Me~For My Readers".
I feel the need to do a follow up post...this is the last post I'm doing on religion, and I am going back to post my normal stuff after this. I just felt the need to discuss this topic. 
Now, the point of "The Real Me~For My Readers" post, was NOT to get judged, and just to let everybody know my views on certain topics, and let THEM decide if they were still comfortable following someone who didn't share their same religious views. 
Honestly, I did feel a bit judged by a few of you, even if you meant well. I decided not to respond to any of the comments or questions, because I don't want to pick and choose which comments I reply to, because then that's me judging your comments. So if you had a question, just out of curiosity, not being judgmental, feel free to message me personally about it, and I'd love to answer it. 
I don't mind answering just out of curiosity questions, about why I believe these things, as long as it's not being pushed to judgement eventually. I feel that my relationship with my God is very personal and not really open to discussion. 
I've had a few of you come to me saying that you're praying for me or have come to me trying to reason why my beliefs aren't the correct ones. I don't want any of this. The point of my post, like I said, was NOT to get judged. I don't need or actually WANT any of your prayers, I would just like people to accept me for my beliefs, and move on, and actually learn about the person that I am, not just judge me on whether or not I believe gay marriage is acceptable or not acceptable. 
I've already lost a couple of people because they didn't want to talk to me anymore after they found out that my beliefs didn't match up to theirs. I'm just glad that I caught these people early though, and now I won't feel really hurt if they judged me later on in our friendship. A true friend wouldn't judge someone that quickly just because their beliefs didn't match up. A few of you though, have accepted me and just moved on, and I really do appreciate that. Nobody should be judged on their beliefs.
I'm moving on to my regular posts again now, and I'm not really open to discussing this anymore. If you have a problem with my views, I don't want you to give me a list of Bible verses and pray for me, please. I just would like my views to be accepted, even if you don't agree with them. That's totally fine! 
I think I've covered all I would like to cover.
I hope you have a sparkly day!

The Real Me~~For My Readers

Hey everyone!
How are you doing?
I feel like there are a few subjects I should touch bases on...they've been on my mind a lot. 
Everyone knows me as a Christian, and I am...kinda. I may not be the definition of a Christian in quite a few of my readers' books, but I am in mine. I do believe in a higher power such as God, because someone must have created this earth and life, but I don't believe that it played out exactly how the Bible states it. I believe it may have occurred over millions of years, and he didn't exactly just say, "let there be light". These are just my feelings though. 

I'm really not much of a Bible-reader to be honest. I haven't read my Bible in over a year. I just don't agree with most of what it says. For example, it says to love him above all else, and I know that I don't. I most definitely love my family more than him. For me at least, it's just full of a lot of judgmental stuff, and it doesn't make me happy when I read it. I find myself happier when I'm reading books like Harry Potter, Mortal Instruments, or Hunger Games, and God wants me to happy. Personally, I feel he hasn't put me on this earth, just to read the Bible, worship him, and witness to others. I don't see anything wrong with watching movies with "witchcraft" in it. 

Also, I don't see anything wrong with gay marriage or being transgender, not at all. I know that a lot of you disagree with this statement, but like I said, this is just how I feel. God wouldn't have created someone to be gay, and then say it's wrong. Most people don't just choose to be gay just because and have to deal with everyone judging them and making fun of them just for that. In my opinion, gay marriage is just fine, and I was glad when they made it legal. 

I also had someone recently judge me on my recent outfit post, telling me how immodest it was, and how I was showing off my body for men and giving them unnecessary sinful thoughts. My modesty opinion is my own. I'm not going to cover my whole body in clothing. I don't control what those men think, they control it themselves, and trust me, when I wear shorts, I'm not wearing them so men can be looking at my body. I wear them because I like wearing shorts, and I'm comfortable in them. I consider myself quite a modest girl, but that doesn't mean I really want to wear skirts and dresses all the time. If that's what you like to do and that's what makes you happy, great! :) It's just not really my style. 

I've had a few people judging me lately on the kind of person they "think" I am. This blog isn't a Christian blog, so I'm not going to be posting a lot of Christian stuff if that's what you're here for. What I'm getting at with this post is that I'm done with being judged. Most of you don't really know the real me. Only a very small handful of people do. If you have a problem with my views, then I'm not forcing you to keep reading my blog. I don't want a ton of people saying either that they're are going to be praying for me, because I don't want to just be "pitied" because I'm supposedly a "lost soul". These are just my opinions, and some of you may not agree with them, but that doesn't mean I'm a bad person. So if you don't want to continues reading my blog because of the person you think I am, then sorry, I'm not going to feel bad about my beliefs, and you can't make me feel bad. This blog was never suppose to be a Christian blog.  I am a good person, and only a few people have actually taken the time to get to know me for the real me, and haven't judged me a single time for my beliefs, and those are the people I know I can trust and talk to.
