DIY: Greek goddess Costume

for Halloween I had 2 costumes. at my church festival I was a greek goddess and trick-or-treating I was a hippie. However, my favorite was the greek goddess costume and here is how I made it!:




I Applied gold eyeshadow and purple winged liner to look very royal and goddessy!


I put a gold and silver elastic braided head band on my forehead and to look like the golden leaves head wear they usually have on.

for my hair I side ways French braided the top half on both sides all the way to the back


of course a greek goddess is’nt a goddess without a royal serpent, and since I couldn’t find my snake, I had to draw one:


For my dress I wore a white short dress and for my shoes I wore these gold one’s I love


this costume was last minute and my favorite of the 2!

all of our costumes:



Giddy up hippie!

Personal Pan Pizza Project!

Saturday night my family and I decided to make our own pizza:
Tip: We used dough for bread instead of pizza crust and got a much fluffier outcome!
  1. Just like with pizza crust you have to stretch, pull, flatten roll and pound the dough.
Tip: Heating a pizza stone in the the oven prior to stretching dough, and brushing olive oil on dough before adding the goods will give your it a little pop!
2. Apply the goods!
On My pizza I added Ham, mozzarella cheese, pineapple, basil and Tomato sauce:

3. After the toppings were all on we popped them in the oven for 25 minutes and waited…
4. When the timer dings take your pizza out and thank me:)
