My New York times

My camera is working! Here are a few photos from my time New York.

The view from the helicopter

The American flag

Central Park

Times Square

Statue of Liberty

The City in the daytime...

...and the City at night!

Giant Angry Birds!

A rather pretty fountain

On top of the world!

Okay that's enough pictures. I really loved New York and hope I can go back one day!
Now I'm off to watch Bananas in Pajamas with my sister. Laters.

New York, New York!

You might have noticed that I haven't posted in a while and that's because I've spent the last week in New York City! It was a last minute surprise but I ended up travelling there with my mother, aunt and cousin. It was so much fun and because I've never been before it was a brand new experience!

We went to Times Square.

We saw the Statue of Liberty.

We went to Tiffany's (but didn't buy anything).

We rode in a yellow taxi through the city.

We stayed at the Plaza Hotel! My aunt paid for all of us. I love her.

We went to Dylan's Candy Bar. It was a dream come true.

We watched Footloose at the theatre.

We ate Ben & Jerry's Cake Batter ice cream for the first time.

Those are just a few of the highlights from my trip. If my camera ever decides to work I'll upload some photos. It was a pretty fantastical trip. New York really is as amazing as they say it is!


P.S. Hope you all had an awesome Halloween!

Plans for today

I have a new follower. Her name is Deserae. Check her out.
She also commented on my last blog saying I had fabulous taste and that she hopes I get a few of the things on my shopping list. Thanks for your comment, my dear Deserae, and let me just tell you your name is beautiful! Okay, here are my plans for the day:

Sort out my Converse collection. I have way too many shoes.

Make some yummy pancakes for my family.

Teach my cat how to levitate.

Reread the Harry Potter series.

Finish my French essay.

Make a birthday card for my nanna.

Be awesome.

Those are my plans so far. I'll probably end up adding to the list later. Enjoy your day, amigos!

How to relax when you're stressed

Following on from my last how-to post, I've decided to write about the things I do when I'm feeling stressy. Let's face it, everyone gets stressed. So here are some of my ideas.

How to relax when you're feeling stressed

Change into something comfortable. For me, comfortable is all about snuggable pyjamas and cosy slippers. Make sure you're warm and comfy before beginning your stress-free regime.

Make yourself a warm drink. Hot chocolate or chamomile tea usually does the trick. Or treat yourself at your local coffee shop if you don't feel like doing it yourself.

Play some of your favourite music. Loud, raging rock music probably won't help. Go for something soothing, like classical or jazz. (Unless rock music actually helps you feel calmer.)

Talk to someone. A loved one, a pet or yourself. Talking things through can be very therapeutic. Go somewhere you love with your family or friends and just let loose. Have fun.

Treat yourself to a long soak in the tub. Bubble baths have been proven to be very calming. Especially if you add essential oils and scented candles to create a peaceful ambience.

If you have something you need to do, get it out of the way. Don't leave any chores or homework to the last minute. Getting it over and done with means you get to look forward to more "me time" for later! Write a to-do list if you have trouble keeping up with everything.

Do something you love to take your mind off the stress. Write a poem, take photos of nature, go shopping with your friends, eat ice cream, read your favourite blogs, watch a movie you haven't seen in ages. If something makes you happy, then it's something worth doing.

It may sound odd but painting your nails a different colour or experimenting with a new hairstyle can help you relax. It's reassuring knowing that change isn't always a bad thing!

Make your day as amazing as you possibly can!


What I Did Today by Poppy G.

Called my sister who is on her gap year holiday in Mexico.

Played Super Mario Bros on my DS.

Made s'mores for the first time with my best friend Janet.

Watched Breakfast at Tiffany's for the billionth time.

Made vanilla cheesecake cupcakes with my momma.

Bought Two Door Cinema Club's CD "Tourist History" (thanks Sonal).

Decided I will get a mermaid tattoo when I'm older.

Nearly got hit by a car which drove through a red light.

Painted my toenails with Essie's Van D'Go polish.

Met my grandma at Starbucks in town for coffee and a chat.

And that's basically it.
