Old Things // Photoshoot: Hats, Figurines, Statues, Books, Me as a little girl, and more

Yeah I am already messing up my scedule. I just have to get this thing published before the 30th. Thank you very much. So today I am going to show you guys some pics of some old things in my house. Now some of these aren't physically old but they just seem old or based on old things. Here are the pics!

This is the majestic thing that none of us know what it is. Do you guys know what it is?

It is the sledge hammer device. 

This is a cool empress thing from china. It is like super breakable and I think made out of some precious stone.  

  This is her husband the emperor. 

It's me! As a tiny girl.

This is also from some Asian country I think. It is kind of broken.

I love that color of blue!

I am pretty sure the book is a type of bible. 

This is the old pitcher.

I think my mom found this in some house that an old guy sold us. She for some reason liked it. By the way I don't really believe in people having guns. They do hurt people.

My dad actually made this.

These are some old hats some old lady used to own. 

A bunch of different items. 

By the way the reason I did an "Old Things" photoshoot is because the 5th BIBPC category is old things. Here is the photos I want to enter.

I don't know. I couldn't really find any really old things in my house. It was hard. 

So which photo was your favroite? If you liked this post and others on my blog make sure to follow!

Interview with Anne from A Portrait Of Youth + New blogging scedule + Contest Deadline Extended

Hi peoples. So just to get it out of the way my new blogging schedule is that I will be posting every Saturday and on Tuesday when I have time. Yeah pretty amazing scedule. It is very precise and informative. But now on the actual post! I am interviewing the super cool Anna from A Portrait of Youth! It is actually an interview swap so you can see her interviewing me here. Here is the interview!


Would you rather stay in a hotel or camp?
I've actually never been camping before, so I'd love to try it, but hotels are great. I guess somewhere in between like a youth hostel suits me best right now. They get a pretty bad name but I've stayed in some absolutely fabulous ones and it's a great way to meet people.

Hostels. Interesting. What are your favorite activities?

I love writing and travelling and going on new adventures. I'm about to leave for India, where I'll be living and volunteering for a year so a lot of my hobbies - skiing and lying about watching netflix- won't really be possible so I'll have to keep finding new things to do. I'm also really into cycling at the minute. 

You are going to India!? I want to go to India. Cycling is cool. What is one thing most people don't know about you?

That I have two different colored eyes. One is blue and the other is green, so they're very similar- meaning a lot of people don't notice- although the first time they notice is often hilarious. 

That is very cool. I definitively didn't notice untill now. But then again I am not that good at being observant. What is your favorite book and why?

My favorite book - that's a very hard question! I'm going to say right now, it's Persuasion by Jane Austen, but honestly, it changes a lot.

Not sure what that is but I have heard the authors name. Would you rather go back in time 100 years or forward? Why?

As much as I loved studying the first world war (I love history) I wouldn't necessarily want to live during it, so I'll say 100 years forward, and hope for the best.

I proably would't want to live through that either. What is your favorite type of food?
Chocolate. Anything with chocolate.

Chocolate is amazing! How old are you?
I'm 18 years old.

Nice. That is like almost an adult. What is your dream job? Do you actually think you will be able to have this job?

I'm not sure actually. I change my mind a lot about what I'd like to do. I feel like I wouldn't be settled with just doing one thing with my life, but more doing all the things I love. I'd like to be a teacher (which I'll be doing in India) and also a writer and a ski instructor and also voice a character in a movie. And I like to believe that people can do anything they put their mind too (within reason) so yeah, I think they're all things I could do, so why not?

Those all sound like fun jobs. What is your blog name?

I love that name! What is the meaning behind your blog name?

My blog is quite journal focused, I wrote a lot about my life because I like to think that one day I'll be able to look back on it and recall events I've long since forgotten in vivid detail. I want every word to come together eventually and form a portrait of my youth. I remember as much as possible, even the silliest details.

Remembering is fun. Haha. What is your favorite movie?

Probably Love Actually, even though it's a Christmas film and the plot is ridiculous at the best of times. It really makes me laugh.

I have never heard of that but it sounds fun. What is your favorite season and why?
I don't really have a favourite but I love whatever season I'm in usually, although the Scottish summer is questionable at the best of times- we get four seasons in one day here!

Four seasons in one day sounds very hard. What do you love most about blogging?

I love the people. The blogging community is so supportive and lovely, and so much of what I've accomplished in the last couple of years is in a large part down to the inspiration and support of other bloggers. I also love the excitement of finding a new blog that you know instantly you're going to like because it is just beautiful, you know?

I love the bogging community. So when you first saw my blog you of course knew you were going to instantly like it. Right? Yes? Ok good. Haha. If you could have any pet (magical, dead, alive, anything), what would it be?

Definitely, 100% a unicorn. It's Scotland's national animal and fun fact- for one of my serious final high school exam essays I wrote about how unicorns were real and were actually one horned rhinos. Everyone thought I was crazy but I got full marks for it!

Unicorns are the best thing ever. I am officially jealous of Scotland. I want our animal to be a unicorn! If you could talk to any one person (dead or alive) for 30 minutes, who would it be?

My granny had a stroke when I was very young, and she lost her ability to speak. So while I got on ridiculously well with her, I was never able to have a proper conversation with her. I'd absolutely love to talk to her properly.

Wow. That's so sad. But amazing. But sad. So make sure to check out Anna's blog here. If you would like to be interviewed for my blog just email me at nabilaeve@gmail.com. Also you guys remember my 6 word story contest that I had going on? Well it was suposed to end on the 20th but I have decided to extend the deadline. It is now ending on September 20th. Make sure to check out how to win and enter here. I love you guys and I will see you next Saturday. Bye!

Back to School School Supplies Haul 2016-2017

I am supper super exiting for this post! Why you ask? Because

A- It took a long time to take these photos and I am proud of them and
B- This is the first ever time I have done a haul on my blog

*Everyone gasps*. Yep I have never done a haul before. But in spirit of back to school I have decided to one. I hope you enjoy!

All of this stuff is from Target.

*note* I am in no way trying to brag at all.

First up binders! The one on the left I got from target and the one on the right my grandmother got for me. 

I just love the sparkly stripes. 

Next up composition notebooks.

I got 1 purple and 1 pink wide ruled notebook. Then I got 3 college ruled ones. I have always just had black ones before so I am exited to actually have color for once.

OK yes these are way to many folders. I have no idea why I ended up getting this many.

I really love the colors though.

And now for the cute notebooks.

I love these so much! Ahhh!!!

I bet you can't. 

And everything will turn out OK. 

They will!

Paper! I know very interesting.

And rulers! These are just the standard wood kind. I wanted the colored plastic ones but my dad said these would work better. 

And pencils! I love mechanical pencils and those are usually the ones I use but I also had to get some regular ones. 

And then sense I got pencils I had to get a sharpener.  

And then some erasers. I love the colors. 

Plus some post-it notes. It's a cute pink color. 

And colored pencils.

And sharpies! 

Go pens! I love pens. There cool. I got some black ones some blue ones and some different colored ones. 

And now for me trying to get good stationary blog photos and failing.

This is the thing I keep all of my school supplies like pens and pencil in.

I was trying to do one of those pictures with the stuff falling out of the bag. I totally forgot what this kind of picture is called.
