New Blog!

Hey Dreamers! I have some exciting news! I have started a new doll blog! I used to post all my doll photo stories and other stuff on here, but I thought it would be a better idea to create a new blog, dedicated to my dolls. If you’re interested, please check it out by clicking on the link below:

The Daydreaming Dolls

The blog is still under construction, and will be designed my the wonderful Mukta from Design Pique Studios.

I don’t know when the design will be done, and I don’t know how much I’ll be posting on there yet. But, I might post a little less on this blog until it’s completely set up.

I know this was a really short post, but I just wanted to make the announcement. Bye!


Optimism + Being Positive

Hey Dreamers! It’s been some time since I’ve done a rant and I really wanted to talk about something. So, here I am.

Today, I wanted to talk about optimism and being positive. I feel like it’s a concept that’s often misunderstood. Let’s start of by looking at what being optimistic means.

Being optimistic is . . .

  • Believing that the best is yet to come
  • Finding good in the bad
  • Making the best of every moment
  • Hoping for the best
  • And much more . . .

Now, let’s look at what being optimistic is not.

Being optimistic is not . . .

  • Being happy all the time
  • Being overconfident
  • Being oblivious

Why being optimistic/positive is important

I know a few people that sort of think that being positive is not really a good thing. And I do understand why. Some people think that if they are positive or they expect good things, they will be disappointed. I admit, I used to think that way for quite a while, until I learnt otherwise. I think being optimistic is important because, when you expect good things to happen, you’re most likely going to work hard to make good things happen. When you have high goals for yourself, and if you’re positive and believe that you can succeed, you will want to work hard so you can succeed. But, if you keep telling yourself that you can’t do it, you’re going to feel like giving up and then you’ll never be able to succeed.

I also think that it’s important to focus on the good things. I’m not saying that you can never be sad or upset, I also think it’s important to show your emotions, but I think that it’s not good to always dwell on the things that make you feel bad. If you keep focusing on the bad, then you will never be able to make the best of life. Always remember that things always get better, and if things aren’t going well, you are the only one that can change that.


Imagine a positive person. Most people will imagine a girl in a pretty dress skipping through a field of daisies singing to herself. This is NOT what being positive looks like. Being positive doesn’t mean being happy all the the time. It means believing in making the best of every moment.  Some people think that optimistic people are oblivious and they don’t know about the bad things happening in the world. That’s not true, I consider myself to be a positive person and I do know all the issues of the world, I just choose to believe that someday things will get better. People also tend to think that optimists are always very confident about themselves. But that is not true. Being positive is not about “I am going to win”, it’s about “I am going to try my best.”

I hope you liked that post and I hope it gave you something to think about. What do you think about this? Tell me in the comments.

Welcome 2018 + How to Make the Best of 2018

Hey Dreamers! It’s 2018! It’s a new year, a fresh start. 2017 was a wonderful year. I will never forget all the memories and achievements of 2017. How do years always pass by so fast? I remember this day last year so clearly. And now it’s 2018. Time to make new memories and accomplish more things.

We have 365 days in a year. These should be some of the best days in your life. I wanted to talk to you guys, a little about how to make the best of a new year.

1. Keep learning new things

This could mean anything, it could be as hard as learning a new hobby, or as simple as learning a new word. You can also learn something new about your current hobbies. This year, I want to learn more about photography, and I want to improve my vocabulary.

2. Practice your favorite hobby

Whether that’s playing soccer, drawing or reading. You can always improve. Keep practicing, and practicing some more. I want to improve at writing, art and playing the piano.

3. Reduce the use of devices

Now, I know we’re all bloggers and we need our devices to blog. I’m not saying you have to completely stop using devices. I just think that we need to reduce the amount o time we spend on our devices. Personally, I get very distracted when I’m around devices. And the truth is, My writing, or art comes out much better when I stay away from them.

4. Spend time with your friends and family

The best way, you can make your days amazing is to spend time with the people you care about. I always feel s much better after I spend time with my friends and family.

5. Find something good in every day

My last tip is to be grateful everyday. I saw a quote the other day that said “Every day might not be good but there is something good in every day.” That is so true. If you want to have an amazing year, you have to focus on the good things.

Last year, I had decorated this jar and called it my “Happiness Jar.” Here’s a picture:

Every day, I would take a sticky note and with down something good that happened, something that made me happy. I was not successful in doing this for the whole year, but I did it till about mid-April. After that, I just put in sticky notes once in a while.

Yesterday, I emptied out the jar and read all the sticky notes. They all made me smile. I think this method is very effective. It makes you think about the little things, and it doesn’t take a lot of time. Your ‘good thing’ can be as small as getting a good grade on an assignment or as big as winning something, but there will always be something.

You can make this jar for many different things. You could put in something new you learnt everyday, or something funny that happened.

Thank you for reading this post. Happy New Year, to all of you. I hope 2018 treats you well. I hope you make amazing memories and have great accomplishments.

2017 Reflection

Hey Dreamers! I can’t believe that 2017 is coming to an end. This year has been so amazing! I’ve loved every moment of this year and I’m so excited for what 2018 has in store for me. I wanted to reflect on this year to see what I’ve achieved.


I did a post on my new year’s resolutions this year. And you can go back and read it, but beware! It’s not my best post. But, I wanted to reflect on how I did on my resolutions.

Green= Accomplished

Purple= Kind of accomplished

Red= Not Accomplished

Write in my diary everyday

I actually did pretty well on this, in the first few months. Then we went to India, during summer vacation and I was, so busy that I didn’t have the energy or time to write in it. When we came back, I didn’t feel like writing in it, so I took a long break. Then, one of my favorite teachers started a “Creative Journaling” club. I went to the club with my friends and I started a new journal. I started feeling more comfortable with the new journal. So I don’t write in it everyday, but I do write in it often.

Try writing everyday

I definitely wrote a lot more this year, but I don’t think I wrote everyday.  But, I definitely think I improved at writing.

Improve at music and art

Yes! I think I improved a lot at playing the piano. I learnt a lot more. I also did a lo of art this year. I have this sketchbook that I’ve drawn a lot in, and I can really see how much I’ve improved.

Blog often

I am so proud of myself for this one. I blogged so much more this year, and I enjoyed it so much. The results of blogging often, made me really happy.

Study well

I wasn’t really sure about this one, but I think I studied pretty well.

Try something new

I’m not sure about this one either. I’m sure I did try some new things, but I just can’t remember them right now.

Read a lot

I did read a lot! I’ve read seventy four books (including a few re-reads) and counting.

Have the best year

Definitely one of the best!


Blogging was one of the best parts of this year. Here are some stats:

Followers: 72

Christmas Art

Hey Dreamers! I know, I know, I know, that I’ve posted for the third day in a row. But it’s Christmas! I finished some Christmas Art and I wanted to show you guys before Christmas.

                                  Oh Deer! It’s Christmas!

This was a lot of fun to draw. I colored them with my Prismacolors which are so amazing to color with! I also made this digital Christmas card for you guys.

What did you think of my drawing? Tell me in the comments. I promise I won’t post three days in a row now. Or will I?



Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas ~ A Lyric Photoshoot

Have yourself

a merry little Christmas,

Let your heart

be light

From now on your troubles

will be out of sight

Have yourself

a merry little Christmas

Make the Yuletide gay

From now on, your troubles

will be miles away

And here we are as in olden days

Happy golden days of yore

And faithful friends who are dear to us

Will they gather near to us once more?

And through the years we all will be together,

If the fates allow

But till then we’ll have to muddle through some cold

And have yourself a merry little Christmas

Faithful friends who are dear to us

Will they gather near to us once more?

And through the years we all will be together

If the fates allow

But till then we’ll have through muddle through some cold

And have yourself a merry little Christmas


Hey Dreamers! I noticed that I hadn’t been playing with my dolls as much, so I decided to do a little photoshoot with them. I think the pictures came out pretty good. The song is called Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas by Sabrina Carpenter. You can listen to it by clicking right here. I hope you liked the photoshoot. Which photograph was your favorite? Tell me in the comments.
