Book Tower Challenge (video)

Hey guys!

I know I promised a My Week in Pics blog, but Saturday I was gone for 13 hrs! THIRTEEN HOURS! I was so busy, and I don't post on Sundays. Yesterday was super busy and exciting too! So I'll have a double post up on Friday, I PROMISE! Pinky swear!

But in the meantime, the second video I ever filmed in LIVE! YES! Please give it a thumbs up!

Top Ten Most Influential Books Tag (video)

Hey guys!

It's midnight, making it officially Friday! You know what that means? Yes, a week in pics blog (hopefully I'll have one up tomorrow. Why? You'll see :D ) BUT also a new video!

In fact I decided to talk about my posting schedule. I'll post it here first because I've got some vids prefilmed, like, 6 of them, so it'll be a while before I start adding this to my videos. But I'm going to upload every Tuesday and Friday from now on. I'm doing it backwards right now, but soon I'll start having Tag and Challenge Tuesdays, and Reviews and Rants Fridays. How's that sound? I've got a lot of vids filmed already, and I'm doing at least 1 more on Sat, so expect more soon! I also have two more that I didn't edit that I'll post soon. Remember, LA Knight or Ray was editing for me. I'll do the ones that need to be up soon--like wrap ups and #AYearAThon vids, or when I'm low on stuff. Ray takes a bit because she's creating my openings as she goes along. I can't wait to show you guys the others she's done!

I'll do my very best to not let this interfere with this blog. And in case you're wondering about writing, I kinda wanted a break after Warrior. My hands have been bugging me a lot recently too, not sure why. BUT I will continue to work on getting Warrior ready for review by agents and whatnot (I'm actually waiting on Ray to edit some things, but she's super busy right now. She's moving). And I'm going to continue writing other things. But with starting this channel, helping Ray move, taking an institute class, and other things going on I've ending up REALLY busy. Once Ray's back in her apartment and we got the hang of this editing-filming schedule down I can get back to writing. And once my hand's better.

Without any further ado, MY VIDEO! Please give it a thumbs up, comment on the page, and subscribe for more!

My Week(s) in Pics ~4/5 - 4/18~

Hey guys!

Sorry for not being consistant about posting on here! Trying to balance life with YouTube, writing, editing and here's a bit of a challenge, but I'm up for it! I promise to keep doing these posts since I'm new to the camera, and trying to vlog sounds...intimidating. I'll probably start soon, but not right now. Maybe next year, or around Christmas? Would you guys like that? Let me know!

Anywho, onto the pictures of the last two weeks! I was so busy during #AYearAThon's Reread-A-Thon that there isn't much pics around then, but I did take a few. And of course there's my videos! Check them out here: https://www.youtube.com/user/lorien13


For everyone's birthday (except mine) we went to Bookman's, a used bookstore chain here in AZ. Everyone had $20...except me. I had $5, counting my coupon. This was all the books we wanted, but couldn't get.

And as you can see, I had trouble putting these 3 books back! I could only get one. I knew immediately which one it was, but putting these back, some of which I've wanted for YEARS was SO hard! :(

Saturday was moving day for my best friend Ray. She has over 2000 books! 2000!!! That's CRAZY! It took all day and way into the night to get almost all of them on the shelves! We only did it because my sister Megan really hurt herself, and I needed to be doing something to keep from going nuts. I also hurt my leg, and Ray hurt both of hers doing all this! We're just really out of shape and now Ray and me are fine. Megan will be, she's got an immobilizer on and her leg's already feeling better.

Speaking of Ray, or by her pen name, LA Knight, she won a contest on Figment! Hers is all the way to right. It's based on an event that really happened to her on April Fools, and why she hates pranks. So do I.

And guess who was in my email from Stila? Ingrid! Missglamorazzi loves Stila, and so she got to model for them! :)

Saw Mighty walking along on the wall just outside of the computer room! Had to take a picture! :3

Also got a video up early this morning! These are the Top Ten Books that Made Me Cry! Please like, comment and subscribe!

That's the past two weeks in pics!

Heading to see Divergent this weekend (no I haven't read it yet, watching the movie to see if I'll like it or not). What are your plans?

My Week(s) in Pics ~3/23 - 4/5~

Hey guys!

Sorry! I know, I know! I totally keep forgetting to this blog post! I'm having trouble editing my book, writing other stuff, reading, filming and editing videos, AND to my blog, all while trying to live what I've got of a life! If you saw my latest video, you heard this weekend was General Conference, where all of our church leaders give talks for 2 hours at a time, twice a day for two days. That's a lot of talks. I love it, but it takes up a whole day, literally.

So, I'll try to keep these posts going, because I do enjoy doing them, but I also need to post a video once a week, and this week I'll be posting a video hopefully every day. I'll try to take pics, but no promises!

Anywho, onto the post!

This past week was my birthday!

We couldn't celebrate the day of my birthday, but the day of was institute! The teachers didn't know it was my birthday, but I got to take home a Iris Lily anyway! So beautiful, and it lasted the whole week, which was surprising, since they normally last less than 5 days.

It was my party, so I ate what I wanted to! Even straight cheese and tacos 3 at a time! YES!

This was my dessert! OMG, that ice cream was SO yummy! I had the first and last of it! Though anyone could have it in between! ^-^

My parent's birthday gift was tickets to Lindsey Stirling's performance here in town, but my brother was sweet enough to buy me 2NE1's latest album, Crush, as well as almost all of the singles they released before hand. Don't ask me why they're not on the album, they originally were supposed to be...

Several days later my dad took me to the mall for dinner, and let me run around. I picked up Bath and Body Work's Amber Blush lotion for free with a coupon, and this NYX Butter Lipstick. Love them both!

That was the past two weeks! This week should be awesome!

Please check out my YouTube vids!

#AYEARATHON Re-Read-A-Thon Day 1 (video)

Hey guys!

So I managed to get through the first book I choose to do for this month's #AYEARATHON. Check out my progress and see me without make up. My folks are already asleep, and I left something in their bedroom I need to get all made up. So I just filmed it real quick. :)
