10 Facts About Me | #teenblogseries


Hello Internet | If you have been following me on twitter (which you should), you would know for the past few weeks there has been a big teen blogger collaboration called the #teenblogseries. Which I literally joined yesterday. 

It was created by the ever so talented, Anouska and Beth. A big thank you to them for letting me join so late. A post from the #teenblogseries will be posted every Monday at 6:30 PM for ten weeks . A nice way to brighten up an ever-so lame Monday. 

This week's theme is '10 Facts About Me,' which are just some simple deep dark secrets facts about me. I have done a '12 Facts About Me,' which is from earlier this year, which you can read here. If you are an old reader, let's see what you don't know and if your new, let's get acquainted.

MIRACLE IN A BOTTLE


Hello Everyone | I hope you are all doing fine. If you started school, I hope you made it through okay ^_^ Before school started I was playing around with my makeup to see which look gave me the most natural look to make that 'first impression'. I had bought two new complexion items that are fairly new to the market, but they did not make my skin look nice. More of that in another post! 

Freshman Advice ♡



Hello Everyone | With pain and suffering school around the corner, I thought I would share some advice about the notorious freshman school year. I am going into eleventh grade, so I am pretty self-qualified in the freshman advice department. So I hope this helps ^_^

Why buy school supplies?



Hello Everyone | When I was younger I was sooo obsessed with trying to sly my way into getting my parents to buy me the nice, colorful, and printed school notebooks/folders for school. I also wanted some nice pens along with a fancy Five-Star pencil pouch. I would try to steer away from the ninety-cent notebooks along with the fifteen-cent paper folders.

HOW TO MAKE YOUR OWN BLOG DESIGN | CREATING THE PERFECT BlOG HEADER + POPULAR FONTS


















Hello Everyone | Eid Mubarak to everyone who celebrates it, even if you don't, Eid Mubarak anyways! Today, I am finally returning to you with long awaited 2nd edition to my blog designing series. If you missed the first post you can click here to read it. All it talks about is getting a nice base for your blog design so you can add on to it and make it unique!

Why do you want a nice blog header? // The blog header is the first thing a viewer sees when they come to your blog. If it is nice and noticeable people will be likely to read more of your blog. Like for example, Zoella has a killer blog header. Like, seriously, it is so eye-catching and really shows that if it is really she has a nice blog!

What are your resources to make a nice blog design? 
Adobe Photoshop CS6 // The king of all photo-editing services, used by photographers, graphic designers, bloggers, etc. It has so many tools that it really can make your blog header unique! Downside it is like $500 dollars to get the program. I have it, but ask around people you to see if anyone is willing to let you borrow and install the program. If not, its okay because we have other options. A lot of people torrent it to get it for free, but your will have to ask your computer geniuses for that

Gimp // Photoshop knockoff, which is totally free to download on the internet! I used to use it a long time ago before Photoshop. I don't remember how it works, but you can try. I wanted to use this today, but I had trouble downloading the software. Practically, Gimp is like Photoshop, but Photoshop runs much smoother. I highly suggest you download this if you can't get Photoshop.

Pixelmator // It is said to be better than Gimp at normal photo touch ups, but it is from Apple. I have never tried it, but maybe it comes equipped on Apple computers. 

Pic Monkey // An online service where you can make a really basic blog header, a lot of people use it, but I do not because it can only do so much until the fonts and the colors get boring.

Paint // You used it as a kid, I used it as a to entertain myself during class. Simple, so not much you can do with it.

Before we can start designing we need a nice font to use for your blog header. Here are some very popular ones that a very nice. I took the liberty of giving you the link to them in the photo caption. All you have to do is download them from a font website and they should pop up in your font drop-down box in Photoshop, Gimp, Paint, Microsoft word. You can download fonts from websites like dafont.com and  fontspace.com, my personal favorites ^_^

Little warning- if you download the font to your computer and, let's say, you write a paper in word with that font. If you save it and try to open it on another computer your font will change, unless that font is downloaded on the computer. With that being said here are the fonts...
