One great way to stay happy is to count your blessings. Do this by listing what you’re grateful for! Every evening/ afternoon, take a journal and list what you’re grateful for. For example:



Today I was so grateful for that duct tape. It saved my project! Lisa helped me after I dropped my book in the hallway just as the bell rang, I was so thankful. And the fact that there was air-conditioning right where I was sitting after being in a blaring sun for lunch.

What were you grateful for today?

Seven Blue Sketches



Oh Hai guys!  As many of you now, it’s fall! Yay! Pumpkin flavored everything, candles, oversized sweaters, tea, cold walks, and…. chapped lips?! One of the worst things about fall are chapped lips. But if you want to beat the peeling dry lips and straight to the hot chocolate, than here are some tips for you.

1. Exfoliate! Every 3 days, exfoliate your lips. This will  get all the dead dry skin off. You can use an old clean toothbrush to do the job, or you can make your own scrub using olive oil, Brown sugar, and Vaseline.

2. Moisturize


(Doctor who reference, for all you non-  DW fans) Drink lots of water, about 6-8 cups a day, and when they feel especially dry, dab some olive oil on them using a tissue. Apply chapstick or burtsbees and be on your way! Warning: DO NOT USE LIPSTICK, LIP BALM, OR LIP GLOSS TO MOISTURIZE YOUR LIPS

3. Protect. If the weather in your area is brisk and cold, wear a scarf and a heavy layer if chapstick over your lips.

Hope this helped you! As always, this has been SevenBlueSketches

The False Prince

My ELAR teacher has give us a forty book challenge over the year, which includes reading 40 books of varied genres.

One of the books I have read, titled The False Prince, is about an orphan boy who has the chance to become king- though it contains more plot twists then one. Rated 4.5/5 by Barnes and Noble, this book by Jennifer A. Nielsen has a medieval feel throughout. Follow Sage on his quest to prove himself, though not the way you might expect. The False Prince is one of three books from the Ascendance Trilogy. Read and comment what you think!

Plain (White) Tee’s

The Plain White Tee’s is a popular band that songs the song, “Hey there Delilah,” and has amazing songs.
But what about the style? Plain White Tee’s are great with a:
-bright scarf
-a feather necklace
-a big purse.

Not only do these look great on white tees, but multiple colors as well.

Too hot for tees? Tank tops work just as well as substitutes.

What are your favorite accessories to have with a plain t-shirt? Post in the comments below!
