Pattern-Eater

So here it is; eating patterns. No, not when or where or what I eat, but how. Specifically small, things in different colors. I eat, for lack of a better description, in patterns. I’ll pour out a handful of Skittles and line them up into a pattern, eating the ones that don’t fit in. A lot of times, I’ll have a set pattern that will inverse halfway through, so I end up ending where I began. I’ve noticed myself doing thing almost subconsciously before, without lining things up, inaverdantly eating a blueberry, then strawberry, then blackberry, and back to blueberry again.

Half the time, if I’m eating those gummy fruit snacks or M&Ms or gummy worms it really doesn’t matter the order, all the tastes are pretty similar. But, for some odd reason, I just like the idea of ending in the same way I began. Like it makes things more complete. Look at me, putting deeper meaning to Skittles ;) So there it is, my pattern-eating revealed. Hope you all have a wonderful rest of your day!

It’s Just the Beginning

Welcome, welcome!! This is all very exciting :) I like how I definitely had thought about starting a blog for a while, but was waiting for something worthwhile to blog about, or a more creative name to pop into my head. But, now neither have happened, and I’m here. Meaning I really just started this blog for the heck of it.

In this blog, I’m planning on just a little bit of everything I love. You’ll get your beauty posts, recipe ideas, outfit of the day posts, and *maybe* some of my music. Forewarning, it’s amateurish. But if I feel brave that day, you might just find yourself watching me perform my newest song. :)

Above everything else, I hope that my little bits of randomness are found to be helpful to readers. However little that number may be, I appreciate it all. I think that’s just about covered it? Now I’m worried I’ve rambled too much on the first post!! Looking for more information? Check out my about me page.

Anyways, bye for now, and I hope to see you back here soon! :)

Jolly Lollies

So today was just another summer day spent home with my younger brother, Alex. That is, until I decided that I had spent enough time repinning delicious-looking things on Pinterest and needed to actually try something. So, lo and behold, Jolly Rancher lollipops :)

First step, obtain your items! You will need: a cookie sheet, aluminum foil, parchment paper, jolly ranchers, and lollipop sticks.

Now, at first I wasn’t sure about where to find lollipop sitcks, but I found these at Hobby Lobby in the baking section easy enough. Only problem was that they were a bit too long for what I wanted, so I simply cut them in half and it worked out fine. :)

Now, WARNING!! Do not make the same mistake I did! We all know that wax paper and parchment paper can kinda look similar when you’re not really paying attention, so… pay attention! The first batch I made (pictured below) have wax paper beneath them. Not only did the lollipop stick to the wax paper, but the wax paper itself melted a bit and got stuck to the foil. *sigh* Such a rookie mistake. Luckily I had enough Jolly Ranchers left to actually do it right the second time around.

Anyways, what you’ll want to do is set your oven to 225°F and line up your jolly ranchers in threes. Pop these in the oven for about 4-6 minutes (just watch them carefully) and take them out once they start to melt enough to stick together. Once you take them out, take your lollipop sticks and put them in. I tried just pressing them in, but found that kind of rolling the stick side to side within the jollies was more effective. Now, you’ve gotta do all this before they cool, so be careful because these things are HOT! Also learned that the hard way, what fun!

And now you’ve got fun jolly rancher lollipops! See, wasn’t that easy? I let these cool about 25 minutes before eating, and while they were cool enough to eat, I think I would let them cool longer next time just to let them get more brittle. Enjoy!!
