Angel Island

Hey, everyone! This story is about an island near Fairyland. I hope you enjoy the story! Read on to read the story if you want to.

Once upon a time, there lived a fairy who was curious about the island. Her name was Angelica.

One day, she decided to go this mysterious island but she knew that she would have to ask her fairy parents if she could go.

When Angelica asked her fairy parents, her fairy parents said she could go.

So Angelica went to pack for the trip. After she packed, she decided to get started on her trip.

About 5 hours later, she reached her destination. The island had nothing on it. She decided to name it The Island of Curiosity.

Angelica had a very good idea. So she flew home and left her belongings on the island. She told her fairy parents the good idea.

Her fairy parents agreed that it would be a good idea. The idea was to bring all angels to the island.

Angelica would stay there in charge of the angels. Her fairy parents disliked the name chosen for the island.

Angelica suggested Angel Island and her fairy parents really liked the name. It also made sense also.
So Angelica went back with all the angels to the island. As the years past, the angels grew a lot and island. It was no longer an island.

It had become a Fairyland city. To this day, guardian angels and other angels live there with kind Angelica.

People who pass away choose to go to Angel Island or somewhere else. This is the end of the story. I hope you enjoyed it!

A Christmas Story

Hey, everyone! You’re about to read a Christmas story. I hope you enjoy!

Once there was a Christmas angel named Holly. Holly wanted to find a way to make Christmas more memorable than ever.

So Holly set out to do some research. She found that the only way to do that was to put a sprig of holly in doorways.

After Holly spruced up some holly, she went to her friend Mistletoe. Holly told her about her idea and Mistletoe suggested that she transform holly into mistletoe.

Mistletoe said that she’d help with mistletoe. Holly came up with another idea and she said let’s wait until Christmas Eve to do it.

Holly told Mistletoe the plan. The plan was for Mistletoe to stand behind Holly and when Holly gave the signal Mistletoe would change the holly into mistletoe.

Mistletoe agreed to the plan. On Christmas Eve, Holly and Mistletoe tested their magic.

After they tested their magic, they announced that Christmas would never again be the same.

Mistletoe and Holly prepared for the trick fast. By the time, they were prepared everyone was there.

So Mistletoe was standing behind Holly. Holly aimed her hand toward the holly. Holly gave the secret signal to Mistletoe.

When Mistletoe got the signal, she immediately transformed all the hollies into mistletoe.

The people who watched clapped in amazement. Little did they know, the mistletoe and holly was magical.

The people went back to their Christmas celebration. The Christmas spirit was stronger than before.

To this day, you can feel the Christmas spirit presence.

That’s the end of my Christmas story. I hope you enjoyed the story.

Beauty in You

Hey, everyone! I’m sharing with you some beauty tips, health tips, and other tips. I hope you enjoy!

Using Coconut Oil:

Coconut oil is excellent for dental health. After brushing teeth with your regular toothpaste, put coconut oil on the toothbrush, and brush your gums and teeth. This will feel awesome. It leaves your teeth feeling smooth and freshens your breath. The toothpaste that I use is Auromère.

You can spread coconut oil on your bread or waffle before putting it in the toaster too.

Using Something to Keep Your Hair Out of Your Face:

I prefer headbands or bobby pins but you can use hairstyles, hats, clips, scrunchies, and more depending on your hair length. I suggest if you want to grow out your hair that you use bobby pins or headbands.

Putting Something on Your Eyes To Protect Your Eyes From Sunlight:

Select 100% UV protection sunglasses. You can get a design on your sunglasses that you like best. For example, flower sunglasses, summer sunglasses, fairy sunglasses, or princess sunglasses are all some suggestions.

The Food You Eat:

Healthy foods like organic fruit, organic vegetables, protein, healthy oils, water, and whole grains are mostly what I eat. If you want candy, get organic candy with no artificial colors, additives, preservatives, or high fructose corn syrup. If you want cookies, get organic cookies. If you want cake, make a homemade cake with organic ingredients and if you want chips, find organic chips at Whole Foods or Trader Joe’s or wherever you shop.

Exercise:

I suggest exercising once a week when you are just beginning exercising. Once you’ve gotten good at doing exercising once a week, do twice a week to make it a bit challenging. Repeat this until you’re doing it, 7 days a week.

Try using beginner yoga, wall sits, air cycle, windshield wipers with your feet. After that, you can try harder yoga and so on. You can use dancing, gymnastics, and walking to help you get stronger and flexible. You can try weight lifting but take it easy with weight lifting.

Paint Nails:

If you are going to use nail polish, try using Mineral Fusion or Zoya nail polish or any brand without harsh ingredients. If you can, leave your toes, hands, or both unpainted or put just a clear polish on your toes, hands, or both to make them look glossy.

Bathing:

Use Aveda shampoo and conditioner (or other brands with natural ingredients as what we use on our hair travels into our body) on your hair when you wash it. If you prefer every other bath/shower day to wash your hair, go for it. Camilla does it for me once a week.

I bathe with Whole Food’s scented soap most of the time. If I run out of scented soap, I use Dove’s unscented soap.

The Drinks You Drink:

I suggest drinking just plain spring water if you can. Better yet, to begin the day with squeezing half a lime or lemon in your water. This will help wake up the water. If you don’t like to drink water, try drinking juice at least once a day. Be sure to get fresh squeezed juice or fresh pressed juice. Stay away from juices that are made from concentrate.

Depending on your body, you might want to find out how many cups of drinks your body might want. For me, I drink 2 cups of water and 1 cup of juice. It’s still okay to drink something when you’re thirsty unless it’s wine, coffee, or any drink that makes you hyper.
