just a bit o random.

Oh yes, it's been one of those days. You know, the ones where the backspace button seems to be stalking you. Oh well, when that happens, there's only one thing to do...write a random blog post!

Random bit #1- I'm really addicted to Polyvore. No joke, the person who thought of it was a GENIUS. Pure smarts, right there. You really must get an account! (And if you do, add me as a contact!) Here's my latest creation...Tell the truth, doesn't it just make you hungry for Summer?

Summer Lovin' by Roxanne206 featuring leather gladiator sandals

Random bit #2- My one year Blogaversary is coming up! I have quite a lot of ideas the little online blog party I'm planning! I'm so excited...can you believe it's almost been a whole year since I've started this little blog? I can't! Can you guess what I'm planning to do for the party? :)

Random bit #3- There's a thing on facebook called the 30 day challenge. It's a fun idea, and I decided that instead of doing it on facebook, I'm going to do it here, on Frills. You people who have been reading my blog from the beginning know that I'm terrible at being one of those bloggers who posts everyday. I'm just not good at that. Hopefully, the 30 day challenge will help me. :)
Here's a bit about it...
It's like a "picture a day" type of thing, and I'm going to try to post a picture everyday and a little bit about it. Everyday, there's a different sort of "theme." See?

The 30 Day Challenge:
Day 01 - A picture of yourself with fifteen facts.
Day 02 - A picture of you and the person you have been closest with the longest.
Day 03 - A picture of the cast from your favorite show.
Day 04 - A picture of your night.
Day 05 - A picture of your favorite memory.
Day 06 - A picture of a person you'd love to trade places with for a day.
Day 07 - A picture of your most treasured item.
Day 08 - A picture that makes you laugh.
Day 09 - A picture of the person who has gotten you through the most.
Day 10 - A picture of the person you do the most screwed up things with.
Day 11 - A picture of something you hate.
Day 12 - A picture of something you love.
Day 13 - A picture of your favorite band or artist.
Day 14 - A picture of someone you could never imagine your life without.
Day 15 - A picture of something you want to do before you die.
Day 16 - A picture of someone who inspires you.
Day 17 - A picture of something that has made an impact on your life recently.
Day 18 - A picture of your biggest insecurity.
Day 19 - A picture of you when you were little.
Day 20 - A picture of somewhere you'd love to travel.
Day 21 - A picture of something you wish you could forget.
Day 22 - A picture of something you wish you were better at.
Day 23 - A picture of your favorite book.
Day 24 - A picture of something you wish you could change.
Day 25 - A picture of your day.
Day 26 - A picture of something that means a lot to you.
Day 27 - A picture of yourself and a family member.
Day 28 - A picture of something you're afraid of.
Day 29 - A picture that can always make you smile.
Day 30 - A picture of someone you miss.

It sounds fun, doesn't it? :) I'm hoping to start it on the 1st!

How's your day going?

web love.

Oh the mighty Internet...what would we do without it? Just think about it. There are an extreme number of things which we wouldn't be able to do if we didn't have...the Internet. And wi-fi? My lifesaver! I don't know who invented the Internet, but I just want to say thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you!!

Some websites which I am just love, love, loving that I though y'all might love too...

Polyvore! A fashion lovers best friend. I'm addicted!

And Vimeo...a video uploading site...I just got an account today, and I have a feeling that you'll be seeing a lot more videos on Fills...excited?

And another? Hulu! Especially since we don't have cable, I basically live on this site. They upload popular t.v. shows the day after they air. Love!

For music, pandora is amazing! When ever I do school, you'll find me on Pandora.

For photos, I like using pic-nic and picasa...they're great for editing photos considering that they're free!

Are there any websites you adore? Do tell!

My new inspiration board has to be one of my very favorite things in my room...

My favorite blogger, who I've mentioned time and again, Carlotta, had an absolutely amazing idea which I just had to try. {You can see her blog post about it HERE.} And seriously, if you haven't seen her blog, yet, please read it because it is amazing, she is an amazingly talented girl!

After a trip to one of my all time favorite stores, Hobby Lobby, I was sitting at the kitchen table covered in glue and paint.

You start out with a blank white canvas...

Then if you want to, you can paint it any color you like...

I actually just wanted mine to be white, but my brothers and my mom each painted theirs, so it's really what ever you prefer!

Then once it was dry, we used a glue gun to put on the close pins...

You can really arrange the close pins anyway you like...

And when it's all said and done, you end up with a really fun inspiration board...which you can put pictures from magazines on, quotes, bible verses...what ever inspires you!


Come on people, you know you want to make one toooooo!

Oh and I just have to show you the cute little monkeys who helped me out...

Aren't they just precious?!

Random Confessions

Random Confession: The chocolates my dad brought home last night are absolutely amazing, amazing, amazing! Don't worry, I haven't eaten the whole box...I've actually only had one, I'm being good. :)

Random Confession: We had CSAP testing this week, and I have to confess that I talked to my friends inbetween tests! Which means that I broke a rule...oops!

Random Confession: I spent all my money on my new ipod touch and a new case for it. And I think I'm in love with it... If you don't have an ipod I would definitely suggest getting one, you won't regret it, ever!

Random Confession: I have a big history test on Tuesday and I haven't started studing for it...not good! :)

Random Confession: Lately, I've been watching the Cosby show every afternoon. You know what the Cosby show is right? It's an old show, so I wouldn't blame you if you didn't! It's completely hilarious! Love, love, love the Cosby Show!

Random Confession: I'm on Facebook way more then I should be...really, I'm quite obsessed. Why did someone invent Facebook, anyways? It's totally amazing, but so time consuming...ugh I love it! :)

Random Confession: I had so much fun baby sitting some neighbors the other night. It was the most fun I had all week...does this mean I need to get out more?

Random Confession: I started a couple new journals recently...I already had my diary which I write in a lot, but I also started a note book where I've been writing about my life in the third person, it's more entertaining then it sounds! I also started a journal where I write notes to my little sister on how to survive life in our crazy family. Hey! One day, I'll move out and she'll have to survive with these people...

Random Confession: Lately, I've been completely, very, into David Archuleta's music. Adore!

Random Confession: I've been praying about applying for a job with Bloom! Magazine. {Click HERE to see their site.} I seems like such a perfect fit for me. It's a Christian magazine for teen girls, and they're taking applications for writers, photographers, etc!! I can't even explain how awesome it would be for me to have my first writing job!! :)

I'l leave you with one of my favorite quotes....

"Anything worth doing, is worth overdoing!"
