Tumblr E-Reader Case! Under $20!

Hey! During class we’ve been reading The Outsiders by SE Hinton, which is about two rival “gangs”, the Socs and the Greasers. Towards the end though Spoiler Alert!!! it got really sad when Dallas died. I cried so hard that i may have ruined the book… It was, however, a really good and eye-opening book. I recommend it. If you are an emotional person, keep tissues with you. I should have done that.

Anyways… How has life been? It wasn’t until I finished reading The Outsiders and decided to get a copy for my E-Reader that i remembered this was the last DIY i did before vacation. I figured i might as well share it with you guys, so here i am!

You will need a computer printout with Tumblr photography, duct tape, and an E-Reader case that fits your model. This can also be modified for a phone or tablet.

Step One. Google “tumblr photography” and select a picture you like. Goolgeling (?) “tumblr quotes” works too. Open it in a Word document and resize it. If you have PicMonkey, that works as well. Resize a small portion to fit the spine of your case. Print and cut out.

Step Two. Glue all your pictures down. Use your duct tape to frame it out. Insert your device to finish and make final cuts.

Bonus Material

Cord Storage Hack

Storing device cords and having to untangle them is a pain in a certain area. To help (and make them look stylish), you can go to the Dollar Store and buy some glitter hair ties. Tie around your cord to prevent tangles.

Thank you so much for reading my blog! Be sure to like this post and follow my blog just so you know when new posts will come out. If you are interested in reading The Outsiders, you can find free PDFs online or its $10.99 at Chapters. Remember the tissues come the end! Thanks for reading and i will see you again next time!

Disney Princesses who Should Have their Movies Made Live-Action + Fantasy Casting

“Cinderella”, “Beauty and the Beast”, “Mulan”. What do these films have in common? They were all animated classics before they became live-action. I have consulted my list of Disney Classics and decided that more of them should become live-action and i know just who should be in them! Let me know in the comments which princesses you think should be live-action and your casting thoughts!

aladdin

1. Aladdin

Okay, a live-action “Aladdin” would be AWESOME. With flying carpets, Agrabah in prominence and the best monkey ever. #abu! Anyways, back to casting. Here are my picks!

lesley-ann-brandtfady-elsayed

Lesley Ann Brandt   was featured prominently on the first season of “The Librarians” as Lammia, the second in command  for the Serpent Brotherhood, villain of the first season. She has also been on “Lucifer”. She has South-American roots and is based out of New Zealand. She seems like the perfect pick for Princess Jasmine.

Fady Elsayed  starred as Ram Singh on the first, and possibly only season of BBC’s “Doctor Who” Spin-Off, “Class”. Ram is a football (soccer in England) star who needs to balance the death of his first girlfriend, losing his leg to a shadow beast and meeting new girlfriend April McLean. Oh yeah, he and his friends also need to save the school. He would be an Aladdin to die for.

2. Snow White and the Seven Dwarves

Snow White was the emblem of my childhood. Coming close next to “Tangled”, this was one of my most watched. I always loved how she could talk to the woodland creatures! Here are my casting pics!

natalia-dyertom-felton

Natalia Dyer  is the genius behind Nancy Wheeler on the Netflix original “Stranger Things” which is about four 12 year old boys who are shocked when Will Byers, one of their little clique of four vanishes into thin air. The series is set in November of 1983, which explains the hair. The 19 year old from Nashville attended NYU. She was also on something called “I Believe in Unicorns”. but i have no idea what that is. It is my personal opinion that she would be an amazing Snow White. Oh and yeah, there have been rumors that she is dating costar Charlie Heaton, who played Jonathan Byers. Please let this be true!

Tom Felton  is best known for his role as Draco Malfoy on “Harry Potter”. He wasted his talents on that idiot, that’s for sure. No offense to Draco or anything! Anyway, he has also appeared as a CIA Agent on CTV’s “The Flash”. Now, is it just me or is this guy perfect to be Snow’s Prince? Sorry, i forgot the Prince’s name!

sleepingbeauty

3.Sleeping Beauty

Where do i begin with this movie? My mother used it as a lesson for me: be nice to people or an evil fairy will come and curse your kid. We need an amazing cast with Angelina Jolie back as Malificent. She was so good in “Malifecent”

evanna-lynchjack-p-shepard

Evanna Lynch was born in Ireland. She played Luna Lovegood in “Harry Potter”‘s 5-8. She has also been on “GBF”, which i personally have not seen. She would be a really good Aurora in this movie. BTWs, she broke up with Robbie Jarvis.

Jack P Shepherd is a British actor known for his role as the troubled teen to early 20’s adult, David Platt on iconic British soap opera “Coronation Street”. He hinted in an interview that David may be remarrying after the tragic death of his wife Kylie at the hands of Clayton Hibbs. This guy would be the perfect Prince Phillip!

littlemermaid

4.The Little Mermaid

This movie made me want to become a mermaid. I would spend days wearing my Ariel costume and singing “Under the Sea”. Hahaha. Good times.

lindy-booth2charlie-heaton

Lindy Booth was born in Oakville, Ontario. She played Claudia on “Relic Hunter as her very first acting role (Which she never thought she would get) which she dyed her hair blonde for. However, she is most known for her role on “The Librarians” as Cassandra Cillian. She would be the best Princess Ariel ever.

Charlie Heaton is the guy who played the amazing Jonathan Byers on “Stranger Things”, the Netflix exclusive. As stated when i was talking about Natalia Dyer, he might be dating her and i hope its true. Now, this guy here is the perfect Prince Eric!

mulan

Bonus Material

Today’s bonus material is fantasy-casting for 2018’s “Mulan” live-action. Here are my casting picks!

lucy-liujohn-harlan-kim

Lucy Liu is a Chinese-American who starred as Joan Watson on “Elementary”, where she was no damsel in distress. Same goes for when she played Viper on “Kung Fu Panda”. She is an excellent choice for Fa Mulan.

John Harlan Kim is a Korean-Australian who stole everybody’s hearts as try-hard, super-dreamy master thief, Ezekiel Jones on “The Librarians”. He turned 24 on January 10th, 2017. He is soooooo super-dreamy and i could make an entire blog post about that, but i won’t for obvious reasons. He currently lives in Australia, but is incredibly busy travelling. This guy = most dreamy Li Shang  EVER!

Okay, thank you for reading my blog post! I hope you agree with my casting choices and let me know in the comments with your opinions. Remember to press the follow button on the homepage and i will post again soon!

Hello again! Long time, no talk! Welcome back to Books, Crafts and DIYs! As I was telling you back in Fall Fashion Advice 🙂, I has made the cricket team. Sorry, I have made the cricket team. There Naajaki! It’s proper grammar! So. That was weird. Don’t lie. ‘Twas very weird. Please just let us forget about that. So anyhoo, I made the school cricket team on Thursday after two days of tryouts and nearly a week of hard deliberations from the coaches and the gym teacher. Now that I have made the team, I intend to take things seriously. And i am going to help my faithful viewers who might also be in this situation. Here are some tips and tricks of the athletics trade! 🙂

Outfits

For a sport, what you need is something versatile. That meaning that you can waer it for pretty much anything. Athletic shorts and tank tops usually do the trick. You can feild, bat, bowl and scorekeep in these. If you need to wear a jersey that is like, five billion times too big, just tie it up over your tank top.

Pamper Me Bag

After a game, you’re all hot and sweaty and smell bad. You need to pamper your self. Be your perfect self once again. You just gave the team your all and now you need to wash up. In my bag, I have fragrance mist that I covered in a candy wrapper the same way i did my candy lip balms. i also have a Christmassy lotion and some hair ties in a small potato chip bag tote.

Pack It All In

 To pack all your accessories away (and a good pair of Adidas), simply use a large, fashionable bag. I used my galaxy tote bag, but you can use anything you have lying around.
