My Apology To You

You guys this is my apology to you because I have barely written all Summer. The Summer is almost over and let me tell you it is ending perfectly. I don’t want to say too much yet but I think this year is going to be a good one. Life guarding is almost over for me and then I have to go find another job for the school year. I’m still planning on going to college for journalism. Wish me luck and feel free to leave me any tips and advice haha. I’m going to be writing more often now and I hope that I haven’t lost you guys because Lexie is back in black! Okay, maybe not in black but I am back! Soon to come on the blog I will have a post from my trip to Colorado so please stay tuned!

XOXO Lexie.

Do You Ever?

Do you ever sit around at a restaurant, or in the line at the grocery store and think about how all these people around you have a story. They all have a story and a destination in life and it makes me curious to want to know it all. Do you ever do that? 

Abandoned Dog Racing Building

Today my friend and I went back to this Greyhound building that’s abandoned. They used to have dog racing here but it got shut down for some reason. Anyways it’s filled with graffiti and just something about abandoned buildings is beautiful to me. Here’s some pictures for you guys.

Defining Nude

Christian Louboutin came out with a set of nude heels but in actual shades of nude. 

I thought that this was an eye opener for me as to what we define as the color nude. The color nude has always been sought as a Caucasian color, but it’s not. Nude is all kinds of colors from Caucasian to African American. I love Louboutin for doing this and changing the view for so many people. It’s a beautiful thing that Christian Louboutin created nude heels that actually resemble all kinds of races and skin tones. Nude shouldn’t just define one color, it should define all sorts of shades and that’s what Louboutin really made me realize today. 

Thanks guys!

Cake In A Mug!

Sounds delicious right?! That’s why I decided to try it out for myself. I saw this video on Facebook on how to make cake in a mug and I had to try it out. I remember when I was younger my grandma used to make this for us at her house. The thing that caught my eye on this video was the Nutella involved. I know right it sounds mouthwatering! Anyways I’m gonna share with you guys how to make it! 

The Ingredients needed are sugar, flour, baking powder, cocoa powder, milk, oil, vanilla extract, and not pictured Nutella.

You wanna get a mug that’s not too big but not too small, so I decided to use my owl mug.


What you guys wanna do is add all those ingredients into the mug, all of them except the Nutella. These are your measurements.

Flour – 4 Tbs.

Sugar – 3 Tbs.

Cocoa powder – 2 Tbs.

Baking powder – 1/2 tsp.

Milk – 3 Tbs.

Oil – 1 Tbs.

Vanilla extract – 1 tsp.

After you put all of that in your mug you wanna stir it until it looks like brownie batter. Then if you want Nutella in the middle this is the time to add it (as much as you want) and it should look like this:


Then it’s time to pop it into the microwave for 1 and a half minutes. After the minute and half is over your cake should look like this:


Yum! Then if you want to you can add more Nutella on top of frosting of your choice! I added more Nutella on the top of mine and it was so yummy! If you’re ever looking for a quick easy dessert to mend that sweet tooth then here you go! Let me know what you guys think of this and if you’re going to try it! 

Enjoy!


Thanks,

You Don’t Need Sun To Have A Sunny Day

I would have to agree with Judy Dykstra-Brown, the word prompt for today is sunny but the weather is not. It’s been cloudy all day here where I live and the storms are just starting to kick in. I kind of like storms though. I don’t have to water my flowers for one but another thing is I just think they are cool, I think they are a cool thing to experience honestly. I hope I’m not the only one who thinks that either. Anyways to make this cloudy day a little more sunny I’m going to share some sunny quotes with you.

“Into every sunny life a little rain must fall.” – Elizabeth Wurizel

“If you only walk on sunny days you’ll never reach your destination.” – Paulo Coelho

“I didn’t notice the rain, I thought it was sunny all day long.” – Adam Nelson

 

You don’t need sun to have a sunny day, just the right attitude and a different aspect on things. You can make every day a sunny day, it just depends on how you look at things.

Thanks,

XOXO LEXIE

Beauty Isn’t Perfect


I had been working on this project forever. Not because it was a hard one but just because I kept putting it off and not wanting to do it, you guys know the feeling. Anywyas I wanted kind of a backboard for my desk which is actually my little dresser that I turned into a desk but anywyas. What I did was I went through tons of magazines and found just plain backgrounds and cut them out. I used these backgrounds for the background of this board which is a piece of cardboard. Then I cut out words and symbols that I thought represented me and others I thought would look cute on the board. This is a very simple project if you’re looking to spice up a room or something. The beauty of this project is that it doesn’t have to look good or be perfect, because something doesn’t need to be perfect to be beautiful. This goes for a lot of things. I like just going for things even though I know I’m not an artist, but in the end it’s still a beautiful art piece because I made it with confidence and creativity from within myself. Let me know what you guys think! 


Thanks,

 XOXO LEXIE!

Would You Rather?

Last night I went over to my friend’s house to watch a movie and hangout. I was feeling a horror kind of movie so we ended up picking a movie called “Would You Rather?” The beginning of the movie was slow and I was starting to second guess my choice of movie but then stuff started to get intense. Basically all these people applied for a job and the boss invited them over to play a game of would you rather and whoever won the game got the job. This wasn’t just any game of would you rather though. It was crazy let me tell you. People were getting stabbed and killed and shocked. It wasn’t good. Well the movie was good and very cringing if I may add, but the the situation they were in was not good. I don’t want to spoil the whole movie but one of the choices was would you rather stab (a person’s name) with an ice pick in the leg, or would you rather whip (a person’s name) in the back three times with an African whip. It was insanely cringing to watch but it’s one of those movies that you can’t stop watching, you just have to see what’s going to happen and how it’s going to end. If you guys think the movie sounds interesting then it’s on Netflix and you should check it out and let me know what you think. In my last post I asked you guys for Netflix movie suggestions but none of you gave me any, so that wasn’t very helpful lol. I’m asking you guys now though again, 

Please give me Netflix movie suggestions in the comments, I would love to hear what you guys like, thanks!
