730 starry nights ago….

730 starry nights ago, i sat on my couch, jetlagged from spring break, eager to share some of my photos from vacation with the world. my personal site, originally called so sugar sweet (why? don’t ask. i don’t really have an answer.) was born that day, and has grown to become the blog you all know as capturing and creating.  i’m happy to announce that on march 27th, 2018, i hit TWO YEARS OF BLOGGING!

this is so beyond amazing and i can’t believe it’s already been that long! blogging has changed so much for me, and here are just a few:

  1. photography! i never thought this would be something i’m into, but thanks to starting this blog i’ve realized how much i love taking pictures and i’ve gotten better at it.
  2.  internet friends: this is probably the best part of being a blogger: the community. i was fortunate to be sorta adopted into a circle of wonderful friendly bloggers as soon as i started my blog, and even more lucky to have met one of them in real life! i love the sites that tie us all together, even though we all live thousands of miles apart.
  3. music: i’ve found so many new artists, bands, etc. to listen to thanks to all these blogs! (i’m looking at you, loren and mckenzie.)
  4. thinking more in depth about books. doing book reviews forces me to think deeper about what i read instead of just saying “it was good” or “it was bad.”
  5. i’m more tech-savvy! before i had my site, if you asked me to upload pictures somewhere, i would have turned purple and panicked. (not at the disco, though.)

now while all these are great, i know you guys probably want some stats. sooooooo:

followers: 270 (HOW?!! HOW ARE THERE TWO HUNDRED AND SEVENTY PRECIOUS BEANS THAT FOLLOW ME?!!?!?!?!! THANK YOU!!!!!!)

views: 12535 (throughout the last 2 years)

comments: 2418 (throughout the last 2 years)

posts: 188 (!!!!)

the top commenters are christina creativity, samantha, loren, and mya!


(it’s 11:11, gotta make a wish!)


i’ve been thinking that i kind of want to change up the design of my blog a little bit, because while i love the pink, i think i want something a little more professional-looking? if that makes sense? i’m trying to make my blog less of a “post whenever, post whatever” kind of blog. those aren’t a bad thing, but i like the idea of having a site that has a theme reflects my personality now. i also want to clear up my site a bit- this does mean i’ll be deleting some posts, (don’t worry, just the truly embarrassing ones like my failed challenges and other things like that.)

also, i don’t know how to celebrate my blogiversary, since i can’t do giveaways, so if you guys have any ideas i’d love if you shared them with me. 🙂


thank you to my followers and readers, to my parents for letting me go on this journey of blogging, and to my the best internet friends i could ask for. i love you all. 🙂

love,

rutvi ❤

the change award

hi everyone!! loren nominated me for the change award that gracie created, and i’m super excited to do it! well rutvi if you were so excited why didn’t you do the tag when she tagged you instead of 56708457398 years later  


here are the rules:

– link back to me, as well as whoever nominated you.
– include this: i, gracie chick of a light in the darkness, created this award to highlight the importance of young people taking responsibility for the future of their world. the change award also gives them the opportunity to share with others what they believe in.
– 
answer the questions below.
– nominate as many people as you like.


make a list of the things you want to change about schools.

  • stop grading group projects as a whole. if one person doesn’t do their part, why should my grades drop?
  • please don’t make sex ed so awkward for us. i’m begging you. it isn’t necessary to make us say….words aloud as a class. we know how to say them, we promise.
  • make polar bear running an official sport!!! kids put hard work into running in the freezing weather!
  • now, i understand why we have to take standardized tests for class placement and all. but WHY DO WE HAVE TO STANDARDIZED TESTS THAT DON’T EVEN DETERMINE PLACEMENT?
  • s t o p  m a k i n g  p o i n t l e s s  r u l e s
  • WHY DO GIRLS HAVE SUCH A STRICT DRESS CODE?? PUH-LEASE, SOME PEOPLE DON’T EVEN WANT TO TALK AT US, MUCH LESS STARE AT OUR LEGS. STOP LETTING GUYS SAG THEIR PANTS DOWN TO THEIR KNEES AND FORCING GIRLS TO WEAR BERMUDA SHORTS, PLEASE AND THANK YOU.

    make a list of the things you want to change about local communities.

  • this isn’t that big of a deal, but please make girl scout cookies less expensive. $30 for 6 boxes is insane.
  • adults, don’t keep asking middle school kids if they know what they want to be when they’re older. it puts a lot of pressure on us, and the majority of us still have no idea what we want our future occupation to be.
  • @adults again, stop saying “this generation” this and “this generation” that. who raised our generation? your generation. and what is so wrong with us?? technology was made to impact the world. and we don’t just sit around like brainless zombies, contrary to popular belief.

    make a list of the things you want to change about the world, your world.

  • the media is trying to change beauty standards, but they’re doing it the wrong way. they say people should love themselves EVEN THOUGH/DESPITE *insert “flaw” here*. example: oh, i guess i’m pretty, EVEN THOUGH i’m a size 14. NONONONO STOP RIGHT THERE HUNNY. THAT IS NOT SELF LOVE OR BODY POSITIVITY OR WHATEVER YOU WANT TO CALL IT. change that ‘even though’ to BECAUSE. you are beautiful BECAUSE you are a size 14. there we go, that’s better.
  • people have to stop saying “that’s gay” TO THINGS THAT AREN’T EVEN REMOTELY ABOUT LGBTQ+ STUFF.
  • please give us a new president. enough said.
  • g u n   l a w s. please change them. guns aren’t necessary.

    i hope i did this right. i wasn’t sure how to organize some of the things i had to say or which category to put them in, so i just kind of guessed.

I NOMINATE:

samantha @redheadwithabook

mcckenna @alternate galaxy

liv @andlivloves

i’m running out of people, so anyone who’s wearing red right now, consider yourself tagged!

**disclaimer** this post was not made to offend anyone, so i’m truly sorry if you are offended. if you don’t agree with some things i mentioned, kindly say so, but if you can’t, then there’s a very useful button called “close tab”.

much love to all of you. ❤

love,

rutvi♥

//ringing in the new year//

i’ll be cleaning up bottles with you on new years day.

-//new years day// by taylor swift



hi, everyone! i hope you all had a wonderful christmas. i spent mine with my family at a family reunion. it was so much fun, we had 31 people! we swam, took a tour, and i figured out that i actually don’t suck at ice skating. (i only fell twice.)

i seriously can’t believe it’s almost 2018. i know i say this every year, but this year has passed by SO fast. here’s to an amazing year! good luck to all of you in 2018. 🙂

so, i put together a little christmas haul to show you guys what i got, since i love reading other people’s hauls. disclaimer: i’m not trying to brag. i am extremely thankful and i feel really lucky to have gotten everything i got. if you don’t like hauls, please don’t read this post. my blog isn’t a place to fight. 🙂

 

the lovely samantha also sent me a gift, thank you so much, sam! i love everything. i totally forgot to take pictures, though…..well, i’ll just tell you.  she sent me this adorable avocado printed notebook, a jar of nutella, and a unicorn decoration.

ALSO, it’s samantha’s birthday today! everyone, head on over to her blog and wish her a happy birthday! we love you, sam! remember, less panic, more disco!!


books: 

i got eleanor & park by rainbow rowell! i asked for this and i finished it on the flight to the family reunion. it was so so good, i loved it! do you guys want a review?

my brother got me this book called let it snow. it’s written by 3 separate authors and they’re 3 different romance stories, but they all tie together at the end. i finished this, too, and it was extremely cute & well-written. ❤


fashion/beauty: 


probably one of my favorite gifts was this denim jacket. i’ve spent FOREVER looking for something like it, and this one is perfect. it’s light wash, distressed, and has some flower embroidery on one shoulder. i am slightly obsessed, it’s so comfortable and stylish. ❤

i also got this olive green bomber jacket! it’s super cute, a little bit cropped, and a gorgeous color. i also really like the ruched fabric, it looks kind of frilly and adds some detail. plus, it’s really warm.

i asked for the colourpop supershock eyeshadow in the shade amaze. it’s a realllllly pretty gold color and looks gorgeous on my eyes, and as you can see, i’ve already used quite a bit of it. 😛

i’m so happy that my parents got me those, since i asked for all of them, and i definitely didn’t expect to get them all. thank youuu. ❤

my brother got me this bath bomb…which i already have. XD well, i certainly don’t mind another one…


stocking stuffers: 

in my stocking, i got a new phone case and popsocket since mine broke. the glittery stars in the case move around when i tilt my phone, and the popsocket is a glittery pink and goes with the rose gold color of my phone. i love them both, they match so well.





and….my favorite present of all……

I SERIOUSLY CAN’T BELIEVE IT BECAUSE MY DAD TOLD ME THE SHOW WAS ALL SOLD OUT BUT I’M GOING AND I CAN’T WAIT AND I’M SO GOSHDILLYDARN EXCITED! hearing her songs in person is going to be so different-and probabaly a million times cooler- than listening to it on my phone, and i seriously can’t wait!!!!

i’m sorry, the old rutvi can’t come to the phone right now.

why?

oh, ’cause she’s TOO FREAKING EXCITED.

AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH.

what are your plans for new years?

xoxo,

rutvi♥

i let my mom write a post for me…

hey guys! some of you might remember this post, where i gave my brother the computer and let him write whatever he wanted. *sigh* i seriously regret that… but i think my mom would be less…cruel. so without further ado, my mom is taking over from here!


Hello Rutvi’s blogging world! Here I am, a computer professional, with not a blog to my name, writing on my daughter’s blog instead – huh. Should I be proud? Yes, I sure am :-).

So, now what? I can maybe, tell you about some interesting facts about her:

  • When she was little, the one song that could calm her down anytime, sung over and over was ‘London Bridge is falling down…’
  • She loved and wanted to do everything her older brother did, that’s how she found her self lost in the wonderful world of Kumon 😛
  • She is really ‘punny’ all the time.
  • Is this a teenage thing? Wanting to wear oversized sweatshirts, mostly stolen from her brother?
  • Rutvi can eat sweets and desserts for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
  • She has blossomed into an awesome gymnast. Love to watch her
  • She is also a brat and an annoying teenager at times.
  • She has a way with words – I am amazed by everything she writes, from the little notes and cards, to the stories that have turned into books – where does she get that from? How can she write so well?
  • She is so organized with her thoughts and yet so disorganized.

She never ceases to amaze all of us, she is so creative. Keep amazing us, keep amazing the world with your smarts & talent. Make us proud, be proud of who you are.


aw, thank you mom! ❤ i love you 🙂

i like your post a lot better than fatty’s.

happy thanksgiving, everyone! i’m thankful for my whole family, but also for the best-friend relationship i have with my mom. ❤

rip it or ship it??

hey everyone! i’ve been seeing this tag around the blogosphere lately, and while i haven’t been tagged, it looked so fun and i still wanted to do it.

explanation: i put 10 girl character’s names in a cup and 10 boy character’s names in another cup. i then picked one from each and decided if they’d make a cute couple or not.

  1. natasha kingsley (the sun is also a star by nicola yoon) and august pullman (wonder by r.j. palacio)

hmm….let’s forget the age difference for a second….

ugh, this is tough. it’s hard to judge natasha’s personality because there’s two of them: her before she meets daniel, and her after she meets daniel.

ok, that’s still a no. natasha loves science, and while Auggie is pretty good at school, i just can’t see them together. their personalities and lives are too different. i feel like natasha would maybe make better friends with auggie, and that natasha would pity auggie more than actually like him.

i rip this ship.


2. hermione (harry potter series by j.k. rowling) and augustus waters (the fault in        our stars by john green)

hmmmm, yeah, i ship it! i feel like hermione is a tough character to get into a romantic relationship with, but augustus could definitely manage to attract her and charm her. they’d actually be so cute together- they’d care about each other a lot. and guys i know this is weird, but THEIR KIDS WOULD BE SO CUTE.


3.   luna lovegood(harry potter series by j.k. rowling) and ponyboy curtis (the outsiders by s.e. hinton)

i feel like luna would either want to be in a relationship with someone exactly like her- eccentric, brave, and a complete angel- or someone who’s a polar opposite of her- someone who doesn’t really stand out from the crowd.

 i ship it, because ponyboy’s portrayed as someone who cares a lot about the people he loves, and he and luna are different enough to balance each other out.


4. neville longbottom (harry potter series by j.k. rowling) and jill charron (with malice by eileen cook)

nah. it’s not that they wouldn’t make each other happy or anything, or that they’d be gross as a couple, but them in a relationship is just kind of…blah. also, jill doesn’t care that much for boys, and neville…well…he’s not the most attractive or popular among the ladies, so i really don’t think he would manage to get someone like jill to date him.

i rip this ship.


5. annabeth (percy jackson series by rick riordan) and nico landini (with malice by eileen cook)

no. even if nico somehow managed to attract annabeth, they for sure wouldn’t stay together for long, because annabeth is so smart and talented, and nico is such a selfish jerk. quite honestly, nico’s a dirtbag and doesn’t deserve any girl in the y.a. fiction world

i rip this ship.


6. cassie sullivan( the fifth wave) and daniel bae (the sun is also a star by nicola yoon)  

i put off writing this one because i honestly didn’t know how to feel about it. cassie is super loving and nice and everything, but she doesn’t seem interesting enough to be daniel’s girlfriend. daniel likes poetry and is kind of a hopeless romantic, and i think it would be hard for him and cassie to be together, especially during the fifth wave.

buuut. they would make a pretty attractive couple.

i honestly don’t know. how about you guys decide? tell me in the comments…

truth be told, i never was yours it’s very hard to ship the characters from the sun is also a star with anyone but each other. they’re a huge part of each other’s lives and have such an impact on each other, that when you take one person away from the other and try to put them with someone completely different, it’s tough to know how you feel about it. daniel is a big part of natasha and natasha is an even bigger part of daniel. without each other, their lives are less interesting and kind of hard to fuse with someone else’s. does that make sense? idk.


7. monica (the fault in our stars by john green) and ren (love and gelato by jenna evans welch)

noooo. monica dumped isaac because he was going blind. like what??? she doesn’t deserve someone committed and sweet as ren. they would nottt be good together. monica was kind of a brat…

i rip this ship!


8. anne shirley (anne of green gables by l.m. montgomery) and ron weasley (harry potter series by j.k. rowling)

awwww, two redheads! that alone- and the fact that they’re both sweet characters- is enough to make me ship them.  anne is super nice and smart and enjoys life, and ron was raised by a good family and is super funny and loyal. their families would get along well, and they’d be a positive influence on each other. they’d just be so cute together, and THEIR CHILDREN WOULD BE THE CUTEST LITTLE REDHEADS! (just kidding, i’m not sure if that’s how genetics works. is it? it probably is. whatever.) ron should just never let anne cook for him, because….we know how that went.

i ship it!


9. bronwyn (one of us is lying by karen m. mcmanus) and leo valdez (percy jackson series by rick riordan)

bronwyn is a smart and strong girl, and leo is…a goofball. opposites may attract, but meh, i just can’t see these two together. bronwyn’s very focused and knows what she wants in life, and i feel like a boyfriend who has a dragon named festus is not one of them.

i rip this ship.


10. charlotte holmes (a study in charlotte by brittany cavallaro) and olly (everything, everything by nicola yoon)

olly’s family story is not the happiest, so i feel like charlotte could help him realize that what his dad does is wrong and he shouldn’t be used to that. charlotte is super determined and is one of those people that seems tough, but is sensitive when you get to know them. olly is the same way, and if they were a couple they’d definitely be a good match. they’d probably argue a lot, but in a cute way.

i ship it!



i tag:

may @ forever and everly

arunima @ dreamer’s dreams

tabi bear @ busy bee


let’s talk! do you agree with my ships? or should they be ripped? 

 


p.s. someone count the number of times i used the word cute in this post. XD

xo

rutvi ❤

//art//

hello! i’ve been doing some song lyric-inspired art lately, and they’ve actually turned out quite good, if i do say so myself, so i thought i’d share them with you.  😉

(art inspo goes to loren.)


lyrics taken from dancing with a wolf by all time low.
i kind of like how this turned out, darker at the top and then fading into lighter colors at the bottom. the lyrics are from panic! at the disco’s song golden days.
and my personal favorite, one that i just did today. the lyrics are from angel with a shotgun by the cab. what should i do with it?? hang it up in my room or put it in the front of my binder so people can compliment me and tell me what a good artist i am? also, no, she does not have a face, because i can’t draw faces.

 

 

100 questions


 

hi everyone! today i thought i’d do the 100 question tag that i saw on mason’s blog! it’s been while since i’ve done a tag, and when i answer questions, my answers are always pretty vague, but it looked fun and here’s the thing.

cringey old drafts//i couldn’t find the thing that lets me put my memory card in it and then into the computer so i came up with a trashy post idea

everyone should have titles like that. XD well, yeah, i couldn’t come up with a post idea except for photography, but i couldn’t find the memory card adapter/USB/whatever it’s called, and then i started looking through my old drafts (aka posts i was too lazy to finish) and found some more trash, so lucky you, you get to read it.

so here. the titles are in bold and thoughts from me are in italics 🙂


How To Be A Lazy Blogger

I’m a very productive person…I just choose to work slowly.

How many things on here have I started and forgotten about??

Let’s count.

-Guess The Object

-TBFN: The Blogger’s Fantasy Notebook

-I Was You (story)

-The Copycat Photography Contest (I thought it would be fun but I got like 2 entries so…😂 sorry people, that’s over)


MOST OF THESE ARE THINGS I WAS TOO LAZY TO DO. I GOT TIRED OF ALL OF THEM AND THEY WERE REALLY BORING. OH AND ALSO THEY WERE BORING AND A LOT OF HARD WORK.


i’m so lazy i make lazy posts about me being too lazy and then i actually post them when i’m being lazy again. woohoo. lazy lifeee. 




Untitled (because I was classy)

Bonjour, it is I, Tailor Swift. I have been given zees nickname for I stitch the most stylish clothes, and I make them whenever you want them. I stitch fast and


i can explain, i promise. 

my 11 year old self was so cringey. what was i even thinking?




A Day In The Life of Pusheen The Cat (didn’t I post this?)

You’ve never met me before, but I am…

Batman! Nanananananananana, Batman!!!

PUSHEEN.

Now, I welcome you to go grab a donut, wrap yourself in a blanket, and enjoy this post. You’d better enjoy it. Or no cuddles from this kitty. Be prepared to learn about the very interesting life of ME, the best cat on Earth!

So when I wake up around noon, I have breakfast.DSC06661

I have no idea how you humans wake up before then. Rutvi wakes up at like 6 in the morning and eats. It’s so annoying because whenever she wakes up she messes up the whole bed and wakes me up. Sometimes, I don’t even get my required 15 hours of sleep.

 Of course, it’s around lunchtime for you humans when I wake up, so I eat breakfast AND lunch. You might be wondering, “Well, why don’t you just skip breakfast and eat lunch at noon?” Well, you small-brained humans, it’s because breakfast is the most important meal of the day

I just love to exercise (if you know me at ALL, you’ll know that was sarcastic) so I went outside, but not before channelling my creativity into a DIY project- lace curtains! *Scratch scratch*

I took the elevator down (because stairs are for losers).

I got Rutvi to put me in a tree so I could pretend to be Tarzan and swing back to the house on a vine. But unfortunately, there were no vines in sight. And I ended up taking a quick nap. Eventually I had to leave, though…

See?! All you humans say I’m a fat cat! I’m not! I’m chubby and cute and make people go, “AWWWWWWW, what is that fluff ball of awesomeness?!” If I’m so fat, then how can I fit in Rutvi’s tiny palm? Huh? Huh? HUH????!!! Then, before bed, I upload my pictures to my blog. 

I know you would have loved to see more pictures of me, but I was too tired to pose anymore. Being a model is hard work, you know.

Goodbye, my dear fans! 

Today’s deep question:

How can one be a  chubby (but NOT fat), sassy, amazing, AND adorable unicorn/cat/donut  at the same time?

MAGIC. XD

~Pusheen The Cat ❤ ❤ ❤

{with no help from Rutvi}


i have nothing to say about this except BARF. 




Our Blogging Community

Our Blogging Community is different than others. We’re a real group of friends who know each other from cyberspace. And it’s incredibly cool. Here’s an explanation of being part of this blogging community.

-We type in all caps. A LOT.

-Most of us are obsessed with reading and/or writing, and we display our creative ideas and stories on our blogs.

-most of us are in some kind of fandom. Harry Potter, Star Wars, etc.

-We all love Pusheen the cat. We worship her. (whyyyy?)

-We’re all weird. (But then again, what is normal?)

-We all like being artsy. Who doesn’t?

-Most of us like photography.

-We complain about our struggles. (way too much, honestly)


i have no idea why i never posted this, i actually sort of like it. it’s very true. 







i have a few more but they’re probably even worse than all these. (yes, it’s possible!)

conclusion: i’m lazy.


Question of the day: do you guys remember when i called all my followers unicorns? *shudders*

HERMIONE OR NEVILLE OR LUNA. *realizes caps lock is on*

BEEBOO.

Answers to my Q and Ayyyyy! (Part 1)

Hello everyone! I’m finally answering the questions from my Q and A! I’m super excited, because I haven’t done one of these since my 15 follower Q and A from last year, which is so unbelievably cringey.

The questions are in italics. My answers are written in regular font. 🙂


Mya’s questions:

Favorite book?

Seriously? Ughhh it changes all the time. Right now it’s Tell Me Three Things by Julie Buxbaum.

Favorite animal?

I don’t have one. Cats, maybe?

Favorite musical?

Does The Sound of Music count? I just watched it for the 4000th time yesterday. If not, then The Wizard Of Oz.

If you had four kids, two boys and two girls, what would you name them?

So many of you guys want to know what I’d name my kids. XD I’m only thirteen! …Hmmm, I kind of would want to meet or see my kids before I named them… but I’ve always loved the names Zoe or Sienna. For boys…I actually really like the name Ezekiel, which is the name of one of the characters from my book. I guess I also like the name Dylan, but meh, I don’t think I would name my child that.

What is your opinion on pigs? (You better be nice to them or you’ll have to face my wrath)

Pigs…they’re cute, when they’re not covered in mud. Especially baby pigs. I hope that was the right answer, Mya. 😉

And….. Are you planning to publish any more books?

Yeah, I’d love to!  But not really in the near future, I don’t think. I don’t wanna be rushing into things and I’d like to explore more with writing and get more into poetry.


May’s questions:

what does your name mean? what would you change it to, if you could?

i’m pretty sure it means “spring” or “flowers”.

hang on…

*googles name*

okay, mom, you lied to me. it actually means “speech, season, very kind and honest”.

favorite shoes brand? clothes brand?

Honestly I don’t care. Wait, I like Vans. But they’re too darn expensive. Clothes, I like the brand Mudd from Kohl’s, I just got the CUTEST Harry Potter shirt. Their graphic tees are so sassy and adorable. I also like Forever 21 and FULL TILT by Tilly’s, but I only get their stuff on sale.
what type of music do you like?

EMO. Kind of. I’m obsessed with Panic! At The Disco. I also LOVE All Time Low and I’m currently listening to them as I type this up. But I’m sort of starting to love 5SOS?? So the best way to describe my music tastes is probably something like emo/boy band/adorable love songs.
what type of music will you never listen to?

Rap. I hate rap music. I’m sorry, but I can hardly even call it music.
are you writing a novel right now?

Not currently, nope. 🙂

how are you feeling today? ❤

Sweet of you to ask! 🙂 I’m feeling really good. I’m unusually happy and that’s the only reason I’m being productive today. I’m excited, though I’m not sure what for.


Miss Dino‘s questions:

Favorite ice cream flavor?

Birthday Cake, even though the kind from my favorite ice cream place turns my tongue blue. XD

Favorite movie?

Mean Girls. It’s so fetch. Or My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2.

Favorite food?

C’mon, don’t make me choose!

Favorite book?

Currently, Tell Me Three Things or Love & Gelato. For an old favorite, Harry Potter & The Deathly Hallows. 
Favorite pizza topping?

Pineapples or mushrooms. 🙂
One thing you’re allergic to?

YOU.

Kiddiiiiing. You’re great, Miss Dino. 🙂 I’m not allergic to anything, actually.
Cats or dogs?

CATS ALL THE WAY.
Favorite day of the week?

Thursdayyyyy!

Favorite type of flower?

Hydrangeas or roses.


(half of) Olive’s questions:

who’s your favorite fictional character?

Hermione Granger, Luna Lovegood,  or Annabeth Chase. I also love Ren and Lina from Love & Gelato. 
if you could marry a fictional character, who would it be?

HARRY POTTER OR SNAPE.

if you could change one thing in a book, what would it be?

I don’t think I’d change anything. I wouldn’t want to mess with any carefully made plots.
what’s your favorite candy?

Reese’s!

what’s your favorite thing to play with? (fidget spinners, legos, your phone, ect)

Definitely my Popsocket. I’m adamantly against fidget spinners. They’re so annoying.


I’ll be back with a part 2 in a few days! Hope you enjoyed. 🙂

xoxo,

rutvi♥
