California Wildfires

Hi everyone. In case you haven’t been here before, I’m Madison. Around 4:00 am Monday morning, my family and I were forced to evacuate our home along with thousands of other people. Several of my friends families’ houses were destroyed, along with thousands of other buildings by a devastating fire in my hometown. While my house is still standing, it is in an evacuation zone, and could be destroyed any minute. My friend and some other teens that I know created a gofundme to raise money for those who suffered from the fires. It would be greatly appreciated if you could share the link on any social media of yours, or on your blogs so we can reach our goal. Thank you.

This picture below shows the home that one of my best friends lived on. Her house has been completely destroyed, and her and her family are now homeless.

You can see from these pictures how much destruction our town and nearby towns are suffering from. Your help would mean so much to us.

New Theme!

Hey guys! So, I’ve decided to change the theme of my blog! Rather than being a lifestyle blogger, I’ve decided to just share my photos! I love taking photos, and getting feedback from you guys!

Every time I post, my photos will be of a different theme! I’m starting high school in a few days, so I might not be able to post very often, but I’ll try my best. Thank you so much for reading!

My Flight Essentials

There are some things that I consider absolute necessities for long plane trips. While some things are more important than others, I like to have all of these accessible while I am on a long flight.

  1. A sweatshirt/hoodie                                                                                                                             It’s always good to wear layers when your going on a plane trip, because you can’t control the temperature on the plane. Also, you want to have something available incase it’s cold when you arrive at your destination. Sweatshirts also make good pillows or blankets if you are wanting to sleep on the plane.
  2. Lotion                                                                                                                                            If you ever get dry skin, you’ll want to have lotion around. Always make sure that you can bring the lotion in your carryon, because there is often a rule as to how much of a liquid you can bring through security. You won’t want to have to throw it away if you end up bringing too much.
  3. Water                                                                                                                                   Although you can’t bring a full water bottle through security, you can bring one to fill up at a water fountain, or buy one while waiting to board. Water isn’t always available on flights, and sometimes it’s easier to bring a reusable water bottle that you can use throughout the trip.
  4. Gum                                                                                                                                              Gum is good to bring in case your ears start popping because of the pressure changes during the flight. Also, rather than brushing your teeth at the airport after your flight, you can chew gum to make sure that your breath doesn’t stink. Gum also helps me if I start to feel sick.
  5. Snacks                                                                                                                                        My go to plane snack is Cheez Its. You don’t need to eat very many to feel full, and they don’t make me feel airsick. Also, dried fruit, trail mix, and other healthy snacks are good to bring along.
  6. Lip Balm                                                                                                                                    Like lotion, you don’t want to be stuck with chapped lips for hours. It can be painful, and uncomfortable, so it’s a good idea to bring along some lip balm
  7. Makeup/Makeup Wipes                                                                                                               If you fall asleep on your flight, and your makeup gets smeared and ruined, you don’t want to be stuck trying to fix it with a wet paper towel from the airplane bathroom. Bring only the basics in your carryon just in case.

What else do you consider to be a flight essential? Let me know in the comments below!

Teen Bohemian Room Ideas

Lately I have been seeing a lot of cute room ideas on Pinterest, most being bohemian style. I want to share with you some of my favorites.

  1. Loft Bed                                                                                                                                    Loft beds are really cute, and give you a lot more space in your room. You can put a desk, or a hangout area or anything that you really want to underneath. I also really like the idea of hanging plants off of the top platform.                                                          loft
  2. Hammock                                                                                                                                       Another thing that you could put under your loft bed is a hammock. I really like the macrame (net) hammocks, and i think that this is such an awesome idea. hammock
  3. Tapestry                                                                                                                                          Tapestries can also go along with the loft idea, because you can hang one on your loft for more privacy. Tapestries can really be hung anywhere though, so there are lots of different things that you could do with yours.                                                     tapestry
  4. String Lights                                                                                                                                 String lights are fun, and make your room more cozy, but are also really elegant. They can make your room look more sophisticated and make good reading lights      lights  5. Decorative Pilllows                                                                                                                  There are so many cute pillows out there and pillows really can show a lot about your style. These are some cute pillows that I really like.

    Well, those are my top five ideas for a bohemian room. What do you think? What else would you put in your bohemian room if you had one? Let me know in the comments below!

My Morning Beauty Routine

I’m definitely not a makeup pro, and I don’t wear all that much makeup, but these are the steps that I take in the morning.

Step 1: Start with a clean face!

Be sure that all of your makeup from yesterday is gone, before you start applying your makeup. Also, make sure that your hands are clean, especially if you use your hands for blending.

Step 2: Concealer

I typically apply concealer in a triangle shape under my eyes, and on any blemishes, or spots. You can just blend the concealer with your fingers, or you can use a brush, or makeup sponge.

Step 3: Powder

I basically just lightly apply matte powder to cover my whole face, to prevent my face from becoming really shiny. It also helps make my face look smoother.

Step 4: Blush

To make sure that my face has some color, I apply blush to my cheeks. Make sure to just start lightly, because some blushes are really bright, and you don’t want to have two hot pink spots on your cheeks. 😁

Step 5: Mascara

With mascara, I just gently brush my upper lashes with the wand, until the mascara on my eyelashes is as thick as I want it to be.
