30 Day Harry Potter Challenge (11)

Hey guys,
I'm finally back!
(You can stop cheering now.)
I missed all of you and blogging so much, but I had a fantastic vacation. Anyways, today's topic is What character would you say you are most like? This was really hard for me to do. I finally decided on Hermione. Before you guys start screaming that I'm not worthy of being like Hermione (I know I'm not) just hear me out. I'm pretty much a complete book nerd, just like her. And I'm smart, but obviously not as smart as her. Is anyone? We also both get annoyed by people who are like Ron and Harry. But we tolerate the inferior ;) JK, guys.

Right, so Hermione and I are twinsies. Oooh, like Fred and George!


Total twinsies.

That's it for today. This post is a bit weirder than ususal, because 8 days makes a girl rusty at blogging. Get ready for Day 12 tomorrow!

Who Would Win the Hunger Games? (2)


In the Arena, there are only four tributes left. Who will win the Hunger Games? 

Who Would Survive the Hunger Games? is an original meme created by When the Words End, where we take four fictional characters that all have something in common (ex: having powers, being mundane, etc.) and put them into the Games, as the last four standing tributes. Then we hypothesize how they got there and how they would have reacted in the Games. After that, we calculate the odds of them surviving and choose a winner.

Theme:
Redheads

The Tributes:
Ron from Harry Potter
Clary from The Mortal Instruments
Genya from Shadow and Bone
Rachel Dare from Percy Jackson and the Olympians

Training Score (Out of 12):
Ron- Seven
Clary- Five
Genya - Six
Rachel Dare - Five
"First they show a photo of the tribute, then flash their score below it. The Career Tributes naturally get in the eight-to-ten range. Most of the other players average a five." - The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

The Arena:
The Cornucopia is in the middle of a sweet-smelling green meadow, and the sky is azure blue, with fluffy, billowing white clouds. The meadow stretches for miles, and far in the distance there are woods on one side, and a snow-capped mountain on the other, which is actually a volcano. Everything in the arena is lethally poisonous, including the food growing in the arena, the water in the stream, the butterfly stings, and even the scent of the flowers when inhaled too directly. The only sources of safe food and water in the arena are the rainwater and the food from the Cornucopia

The Cornucopia:
Ron would probably go for the food and water since he can't use muggle weapons and tools. Clary would probably go straight for the weapons since she has experience using them in her Shadowhunter training. Genya and Rachel have very little experience in fighting. They might each take some food and supplies. 
"Sixty seconds to take in the ring of tributes all equidistant from the Cornucopia, a giant golden horn shaped like a cone with a curved tail, the mouth of which is at least twenty feet high, spilling over with the things that will give us life here in the arena. Food, containers of water, weapons, medicine, garments, fire starters. Strewn around the Cornucopia are other supplies, their value decreasing the farther they are from the horn." -The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

Alliances:
I think that Clary and Rachel would make alliances with each other. They are both friendly and share a common interest of art. 
Ron could possibly make an ally with someone at first but if he and his ally are put under dangerous circumstances, Ron would probably Apparate and leave his ally behind. 
Genya would also ally with someone because she is quite weak by herself.
"Often alliances are formed in the early stages of the Games. The strong band together to hunt down the weak then, when the tension becomes too great, begin to turn on one another." -The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

Shelter:
Ron would probably hide in or near the Cornucopia so he could keep an eye on the supplies. If another tribute gets too, close, he could just Apparate. Clary, Rachel, and Genya would constantly migrate around the Arena to avoid other tributes.


Sponsors:
Since Ron is awkward, he might not have made a good first impression during the interviews but he is kind of funny so that might help him gain a few sponsors. Genya could probably use her physical appearances to appeal to potential sponsors. Clary can use weapons the best out of the four so she would also get some sponsors. As for Rachel, I highly doubt that anyone could consider her as a potential victor due to her lack of experience in battle.

Feasts:
Ron would probably Apparate to the Feast, grab as much stuff as he can, and then go back to his hiding place. Clary, Rachel, and Genya would all need supplies, mostly food and water, because they are not the type to go rushing to the Cornucopia as soon as they are low on supplies.
"For the most part, the only communication the tributes get from outside the arena is the nightly death toll. But occasionally, there will be trumpets followed by an announcement. Usually, this will be a call to a feast. When food is scarce, the Gamemakers will invite the players to a banquet, somewhere known to all like the Cornucopia, as an inducement to gather and fight." -The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
The Winner:
The Winner of The Hunger Games is…

Ron Weasley!

Despite being useless at fighting without his wand or Hermione, Ron could easily win the Hunger Games by Apparating . His strategy would be to hide in the Cornucopia, amongst the supplies and away from all the dangerous things in the wilderness of the Arena. If another tribute approached the Cornucopia, Ron would just Apparate somewhere else and wait until the other person was gone to go back. However, he may splotch himself a few times in the process of Apparation.

30 Day Harry Potter Challenge (10)

Hey guys!
Today's prompt was awesome: Horcruxes or Hallows? And my answer is 100% hallows. They're cooler, creepier (kinda!) and just all-around better. It was a hard choice, but I do think that hallows definitely top the list. But horcruxes are a close second.


Tell me what you guys think below! Remember, this is my last post until next Saturday, because I'll be without internet for a bit. See you guys soon!

Library and Bookstore Mini Book Haul

Hi guys!

Unlike Kaylie, I almost never buy books. But today, I actually bought 3. That's a huge deal for me. I think the main reason I don't buy books is because I read them too fast and tend not to re-read. But I just picked up Afterworlds by Scott Westerfeld (signed!) I'll Give You The Sun by Jandy Nelson (also signed!) and The List by Siobhan Vivian. I also just got 6 new books from the new library in town. I wanted to check out like 30, but unfortunately my mom thought I might not do anything else for a month if I checked out 30 books. So I had to settle for 6. Anyways, in this post, I'll be describing my book haul...and attempting to keep it interesting.
~LIBRARY~
Don't Look Back by Jennifer L. Armentrout
Reality Boy by A.S. King
Isla and The Happily Ever After by Stephanie Perkins
Rose Under Fire by Elizabeth Wein
Ruin and Rising by Leigh Bardugo
Imposter by Susanne Winnacker 

~BOOKSTORE~ 
Afterworlds by Scott Westerfeld (signed) 
I'll Give You The Sun by Jandy Nelson (signed) 
The List by Siobhan Vivian

Don't Look Back by Jennifer L. Armentrout: I saw this book on Goodreads a while ago, and decided mainly to read it because the cover looked cool. Also, this book's plot line seemed super intriguing, and even though I didn't like Armentrout's Lux series, I still decided to go for it. And I ended up loving this book! It's a mystery that keeps you guessing until the very last page, but there's a killer romance too. So basically lots of awesomeness.

Samantha is a stranger in her own life. Until the night she disappeared with her best friend, Cassie, everyone said Sam had it all-popularity, wealth, and a dream boyfriend.

Sam has resurfaced, but she has no recollection of who she was or what happened to her that night. As she tries to piece together her life from before, she realizes it's one she no longer wants any part of. The old Sam took "mean girl" to a whole new level, and it's clear she and Cassie were more like best enemies. Sam is pretty sure that losing her memories is like winning the lottery. She's getting a second chance at being a better daughter, sister, and friend, and she's falling hard for Carson Ortiz, a boy who has always looked out for her-even if the old Sam treated him like trash.

But Cassie is still missing, and the facts about what happened to her that night isn't just buried deep inside of Sam's memory-someone else knows, someone who wants to make sure Sam stays quiet. All Sam wants is the truth, and if she can unlock her clouded memories of that fateful night, she can finally move on. But what if not remembering is the only thing keeping Sam alive?
Reality Boy by A.S. King: This book was amazing. I was drawn to it because of the plot line, and it was just as interesting as I expected it to be. There were times when I wanted to stop reading it because of my extreme hatred towards the mom and older sister in this book, but I kept reading because I knew the author had done a good job writing it and that was why the characters were so hateably three-dimensional, instead of being boring. Cuz no one likes boringness.

Gerald Faust knows exactly when he started feeling angry: the day his mother invited a reality television crew into his five-year-old life. Twelve years later, he’s still haunted by his rage-filled youth—which the entire world got to watch from every imaginable angle—and his anger issues have resulted in violent outbursts, zero friends, and clueless adults dumping him in the special education room at school.

Nothing is ever going to change. No one cares that he’s tried to learn to control himself, and the girl he likes has no idea who he really is. Everyone’s just waiting for him to snap…and he’s starting to feel dangerously close to doing just that.
Isla and The Happily Ever After by Stephanie Perkins: I had read Anna and Lola a while ago, and I must say this book was a fantastic conclusion to the series. I can't say much without spoiling the book, but *swoons* extreme fangirling occurred after reading this.

Hopeless romantic Isla has had a crush on introspective cartoonist Josh since their first year at the School of America in Paris. And after a chance encounter in Manhattan over the summer, romance might be closer than Isla imagined. But as they begin their senior year back in France, Isla and Josh are forced to confront the challenges every young couple must face, including family drama, uncertainty about their college futures, and the very real possibility of being apart.

30 Day Harry Potter Challenge (9)

Hey guys :)
Nine days in and still going strong! The 30 Day HP Challenge is in full swing. Today's question is, What Is Your Least Favorite Male Character And Why? Guess what? My answer's not Voldemort. *Gasp* I know he's evil and terrible and horrifying and cannot be named ;) but if it weren't for him, there would be no Harry Potter stories. Each hero needs a villain, and Harry's is Voldemort. So instead, I'm choosing Draco. Draco just annoys the heck out of me. He's a butthead, mean, petty, and basically the Regina George of books.

Get what I mean?

Anyways, Draco is someone who's constantly trying to bring Harry down, and I hate that, because Harry is the bestest. So anyone who trys to plot his downfall sucks. Even if it's just stupid pranks, Draco is most definitely my least favorite male character.

That's all for today!

Review: I'll Give You The Sun


Title: I'll Give You the Sun 
Author: Jandy Nelson
Pages: 317
Publication: September 16th 2014 by Dial
Series: Standalone
Buy on the Book Depository
A brilliant, luminous story of first love, family, loss, and betrayal for fans of John Green, David Levithan, and Rainbow Rowell

Jude and her twin brother, Noah, are incredibly close. At thirteen, isolated Noah draws constantly and is falling in love with the charismatic boy next door, while daredevil Jude cliff-dives and wears red-red lipstick and does the talking for both of them. But three years later, Jude and Noah are barely speaking. Something has happened to wreck the twins in different and dramatic ways . . . until Jude meets a cocky, broken, beautiful boy, as well as someone else—an even more unpredictable new force in her life. The early years are Noah's story to tell. The later years are Jude's. What the twins don't realize is that they each have only half the story, and if they could just find their way back to one another, they’d have a chance to remake their world.

This radiant novel from the acclaimed, award-winning author of The Sky Is Everywhere will leave you breathless and teary and laughing—often all at once.
Hey guys!
This is going to be a bit strange of a review because I am drowning in feels right now. But not happy feels or angry feels or sad feels, just beautifully overwhelming ones.
It's unavoidable.

And just because this is a relatively newish book, I'm going to leave this part spoiler-free. So you can read this first if you want, and then read the book, knowing how awesome it is. Or you can read it and come back and read this. Just make sure you end up doing both. But since some of the stuff I do want to talk about is spoiler-filled, the bottom section (with a warning before) is basically all the spoiler stuff. So I suggest you read the book and then read that part.

Anyways, after being on my Goodreads TBR forever, I finally bought a copy of I'll Give You The Sun by Jandy Nelson. I actually picked it up off the shelf, walked around, found other books, then put it down. A few minutes, I picked it back up. I repeated this about 30 or 40 times because there were so many books I wanted to buy and I only had the budget to buy 2 hardcovers and 1 paperback. But what finally won me over was the fact that this had a cool cover, was signed, and was on a ton of lists as a great book. Right from the first page, I was hooked on this story. I fell asleep reading it, and the first thing I did when I woke up was to continue reading it.


This book definitely makes my list as one of the best I've read this year. It was heart-wrenching at times yet full of joy at others. It jumbled my emotions so much I couldn't think straight. And it was impeccably, beautifully written. It's so good I just read it and have already carved out time next week to read it again.

Wow...

I think one of the main reasons I loved this book is the way it was pieced together. I love how the chapters are told not only in alternating perspectives but that they're told in the past and in the present. The story comes in bits and pieces but at the end, everything fits together. There are still those jagged lines that cut the picture apart, but there are no spaces between information. Everything makes a bit of sense.

I think from page 1 (okay, more like 13 or something) I fell in love with the characters. Noah, soft-spoken, charismatic, scared but full of expression. And Jude, daredevil, defiant, bold and brave, but scared. Yet what the author quickly makes clear is that these characters are flawed. It's not often that main characters in a book have flaws and dirty secrets. And if they do, those are exaggerated and often completely overwhelm the good side of them. But not in this book. Noah and Jude are real people. They mess up. They have guilty consciences. Their lives are messed up. But they'll always be there for each other, no matter what. They'll bring each other up on the darkest days. And even though they make mistakes, they move on. The characters in this book were just so true to life that I didn't doubt their story at all. After all, they were the type of people that could be living right across the street from me.

The reaction when you realize your neighbor is actually Clark Kent. 

One of the things I loved about this book is this amazing relationship Noah and Jude have. There's romance involved in this book, most definitely, but the key focus is a completely different type of love: the love of family, of twins specifically. Noah and Jude are connected in inexplicable ways. If one of them cries, the other feels sad even though the other does not know the former is crying. They don't have the famed 'twin telepathy' but they get each other, more than anyone else does.

And the art. The dang beautiful art. This book made me want to pick up a paintbrush and just cover my tiffany-blue walls with leaves and rocketships and music notes and stripes. Everywhere. This book made me want to actually get out of bed and get my lazy butt to an art museum. If anything, this book opened my eyes to what art really is. It isn't just a pretty picture. It's a story that demands to be heard. It's pain that demands to be felt. (TFIOS reference!) It's a feeling that you can't explain with a billion words. Art is expression, and this book made that clear with the beautiful tales of it.

And that title. I didn't get it at first, and was like, that's kinda cool, but it could be cooler. But then I read this passage in the book, where Jude trades all the oceans, stars and trees in the world and the sun for a drawing by Noah. And at that point, she goes, "I'll give you the sun." OMG so deep, you guys. So deep. I can't even anymore.


Now for my favorite part. Spoilers! Are you guys ready?

Another thing I loved about this book is that there is some insane character development going on. Noah finally gets over the fact he's gay, and Jude realizes that her boy boycott isn't going to bring her mom back. She puts on one of her breathtaking dresses instead of her blending in uniform and finally makes her dreams come true with Oscar, who was the guy she gave up the trees, oceans, stars, and the sun for. (Well, for a cubist drawing of him, but close enough.) They also grow apart but grow close in different ways. For example, Noah and Jude used to always match when they played rock-paper-scissors, but now they don't. But they love each other even more as a result of circumstances.

Circumstances meaning drama.

There's this part in the book where Jude says she got into CSA and Noah didn't. And I'm like Whaaaaaaaaa? How did that happen? Because no offense or anything, but Noah's a better artist than Jude. And then she confesses that she never sent Noah's application. That caused me to call Jude quite a few names in my brain. And then I find out that Noah knew the reason for their parent's divorce, but he never told Jude. And that their mom was in love with Guillermo, the sculptor who's mentoring Jude. So then they were both even. And, ohmigosh guys!!! At that point, everything came together. And I was so dang happy. I almost cried.

The only thing I wanted from this book was another bazillion pages to read. A lot more of amazing pages to devour and read again and again.

This book is one of the most beautiful ones I have ever read. Five stars for being a spectacular read!

30 Day Harry Potter Challenge (8)

Hey guys :)
Today's prompt was so cool! It was, What would be your favorite lesson? I must say that there are so many classes I would want to take! The classes at Hogwarts are way more interesting than at boring Muggle school. Some classes I would want to take are Defense Against The Dark Arts (so cool) Apparition (just as cool) History of Magic, and Potions. All of these seem really awesome...oh well, I'll just keep waiting for my letter.

Who wouldn't want to go here?

Tomorrow's post is only 20-something hours away!

Review: The Blood of Olympus

Title: The Blood of Olympus
Author: Rick Riordan
Pages: 502
Publication: October 7th 2014 by Disney-Hyperion
Series: The Heroes of Olympus #5
Buy on the Book Depository
Though the Greek and Roman crew members of the Argo II have made progress in their many quests, they still seem no closer to defeating the earth mother, Gaea. Her giants have risen—all of them—and they're stronger than ever. They must be stopped before the Feast of Spes, when Gaea plans to have two demigods sacrificed in Athens. She needs their blood—the blood of Olympus—in order to wake.

The demigods are having more frequent visions of a terrible battle at Camp Half-Blood. The Roman legion from Camp Jupiter, led by Octavian, is almost within striking distance. Though it is tempting to take the Athena Parthenos to Athens to use as a secret weapon, the friends know that the huge statue belongs back on Long Island, where it "might" be able to stop a war between the two camps.

The Athena Parthenos will go west; the Argo II will go east. The gods, still suffering from multiple personality disorder, are useless. How can a handful of young demigods hope to persevere against Gaea's army of powerful giants? As dangerous as it is to head to Athens, they have no other option. They have sacrificed too much already. And if Gaea wakes, it is game over. 

My Thoughts:

Let me start by saying, I HATE IT WHEN SERIES END. I've become very attached to Percy over the course of ten books. And as you can imagine, I am very devastated to see the books end and say goodbye to the crew of the Argo II. Because this is the conclusion to such a great series, I'm going to divulge straight into the spoilers and my thoughts, predictions, and feels, so if you haven't read The Blood of Olympus, or any of The Heroes of Olympus books, go read them, and then come back to discuss. This review probably won't be as formal as some of my other reviews because I have too many feels to comprehend things normally.  



My initial reaction upon finishing the books was naturally this:

I just can't believe that it's actually, legitimately over. I have a tiny sliver of hope that we'll still see some cameos of our beloved characters in Magus Chase and the Gods of Asgard (if you want to read more about said series, click here). It is also hinted at in the book that Magnus is Annabeth's cousin when she's talking about her family before the world ends. So yeah, I'm looking really forward to that!

Ironically, I'm going to talk about the ending first. I know some people thought it was too happy. No one actually died for real! I know it seems a bit too perfect to be true, but honestly, I am completely fine with a happy ending. I actually liked what happened, but the problem I have is that too much was left unresolved. I would have loved this book so much more if Rick Riordan had taken the time to write just one more chapter or an epilogue or something! I WANT TO SEE LEO GO BACK TO CAMP HALF BLOOD AND EVERYONE TO KNOW HE'S NOT REALLY DEAD! The other thing I thought was left unresolved was that stupid riddle Reyna got about her love life. If Rick Riordan could write and novella or short story about her falling in love and finding the perfect guy, that would be so awesome! If you agree, we can start a petition. OH MY GOD. WHAT IF REYNA FALLS IN LOVE WITH MAGNUS? Are they called demigods in Norse Mythology?

Okay, now for fangirl rage. RICK?! WHY NO PERCY OR ANNABETH or Frank or Hazel CHAPTERS?! I was about half way through the book when I realized there were no chapters in Percy or Annabeth's or any of the other sevens' POV. Just Nico, Reyna, Leo, Jason, and Piper. I don't hate the characters like I know some others do but I was so upset. I totally understand why TLH and TSoN had more explicit points of view, but I really wish that Blood of Olympus had all of them, like in HoH and MoA. As the final book, as the conclusion, you want to hear from all of the characters. I don't think any of us realized while reading The House of Hades, that the last Percy or Annabeth or Frank or Hazel chapter you read, was really the last one you'd read. 


However, I can see why this is might have been a wise move on Rick's part. I'm not sure about you, but because we only heard from those five perspectives, we get to learn more about them and grow more attached. I feel like the characters he chose to write about were less understood or liked or respected by the readers as much as the others. I personally began to like Piper and Jason more and was happy to learn more about Reyna and Nico. And well, I always loved Leo, but it was nice to see more of his thoughts (Well that doesn't sound creepy at all…). BUT STILL. RICK! WHY?!? 
(Source)

Next thing I want to talk about is the relationships. Not just romantic ones, the friendships too. Rick Riordan creates the cutest ships. EVER. I SHIP IT ALL. Prepare for straight out fangirling in 3…2…1.

OHMYGOSHNICOANDWILLNICOANDWILLNICOANDWILLAPPARENTLYIHAVELOSTALLABILITYTOPROPERLYGRAMMERANDPUCTUATION. *Ahem*. I think it would be really awesome if maybe Rick Riordan also wrote a short story about them on their first date when they're older. AWWW ALL THE FUZZIES. And then there's Percabeth which is like, warm fuzzies eaten by cats and then puked up in rainbows (Yup, I'm real mature). It'd be so epic if Riordan could also write a sequel, just about Annabeth and Percy going to school and living in New Rome and being semi-normal teenagers. What if there was a short story where they went to an aquarium for their first normal date and Annabeth is tour-guiding and Percy's just talking to the fish? SOMEONE PLEASE MAKE THAT A THING. *squeals* Sorry, tangent. And Calypso and Leo! Eeep! Okay, here's something to mull over: What if someone else had landed on Ogygia during the time Leo was gone? Comment below what you think would have happened!

However, I did not like the battle scenes. I know a lot of people didn't like them either. They were too short. I really wished the battle against the giants with the Sevens' Godly parents. I would have loved to have read that scene from each of the sevens' POVs and see them interact with their parents. Especially Annabeth because it was her first time meeting Athena. Then there was the part where Gaea had finally awoken. All Piper had to do was say, "SLEEP". Then poof. Bye-bye Ga. 


All the battles seemed too easily won. Over the course of the entire series, it's been said that the Giants are going to be difficult to defeat. They did it in a matter of a few pages. Once Gaea wakes up? Goodbye all of humanity! Piper said one word and then happily ever after. This bugged me so much. I wish that Rick could have taken some time to flesh those scenes a bit more. Made them more… battle-y, not walking through a meadow-y. 

But all in all, I enjoyed The Blood of Olympus. I probably would have enjoyed this book a lot more if Rick Riordan just took the time to write just one more chapter or elaborated on some scenes. The Blood of Olympus would have been an okay sequel or first book, but since it was the conclusion, there was so much expectation and I felt a little bit disappointed. Had this been the ending to any other series, I'd probably give it 3 stars, but since it was simply written by Rick Riordan and it had great characters and humor, I bumped it up to a 4 star book.



Okay, that's it for this review, please comment your thoughts on Blood of Olympus. I'd really like to hear what you think!

30 Day Harry Potter Challenge (7)

Hi guys!
Today's topic was one that was really hard for me to answer: What is your favorite female character and why? I couldn't think of just one even though I tried really hard. So finally, it came down to Luna and Hermione. I really can't choose between them. I love Luna because she's eccentric and quirky, but she doesn't mind. She's also a really sweet girl who is like, super nice and caring. Luna seems like the coolest BFF ever. Oh wait, that might be Hermione. Hermione is extremely smart, brave, and patient. Mostly patient because she puts up with Harry and Ron. Right, anyways, Hermione seems like someone who is truly intelligent, not superficially so, and she's also insanely brave. Which is like the best combination ever.

Her...

Or her?

30 Day Harry Potter Challenge (5)

Guess who's back?
Yeah, me. Here's day five of the Harry Potter challenge- so far, so good. Today's topic was Fave male character and why.

I'm going to try not to be tacky and not choose Harry. So, I'm going to choose George Weasley. Not Fred, because of what happens. *Tears* But anyways, George is mischievous and funny, knows how to have a good time, and is just a great person to be around. He's also Ron's brother, which must account for something. Yeah, George. Probably my favorite male character.

Er...which is which again?
I still can't tell.


That's it for now! Get ready for Monday's post!

30 Day Harry Potter Challenge (4)

Hey everyone!
Day 4's prompt was, What Is Your Least fave female character and why?

And my answer is Umbridge. I hate her sooooo much. It's not even funny. I hate her more than Voldemort. She's the only villain other than him to leave an actual physical scar on Harry, and she does not get to do that. No way. She also made life at Hogwarts suck for everyone. So, I hate Dolores Umbridge and always will.

You don't even know how much I hate you.
I hate pink even more now.
Really, Umbridge, this does you no justice. 

That's it for today! Do you guys hate Umbridge as much as I do? Let's rant uh, discuss down in the comments!

30 Day Harry Potter Challenge (3)

Hi everyone!
I'm here with Day 3 of the Harry Potter Challenge. So far, so good.

Today's question was: Is there any of the films adaptations that have made you angry because they’ve ignored important parts of the book?

My very witty answer is that movies always leave out stuff in books. So all of the movies annoyed me because they left out details. But none of them really made me angry, because I knew it was bound to happen. And otherwise, the movies were fantabulous.

Sparkles and rainbows everywhere.

That's it for this teensy-tiny post!
