About Me

MeAbout Me

My name is Mariana and I’m 19 years old.

My spirit animal is a Chihuahua and my favorite color is definitely yellow, though I do love green, pink, purple, blue and orange almost equally as well. Oh and red too!

I love eating and making good food.

I love making things almost as much as I love shopping and god do I love shopping.

I’m addicted to emoticons, but don’t worry, I’m trying to work on that. ;P

I’m a self-proclaimed book snob and a lover of bad music.

I think I’m nerdy, but I’m not really sure anymore, people keep changing the definition.

I can be crude and rude, with a sassy attitude so beware.

I try not to take myself to seriously, keep that in mind. :)

If you’re here I already like you so don’t be afraid to leave me a comment.

About the Blog

This is my personal blog meaning that anything goes. I love to cook and will occasionally post recipes, but don’t expect them everyday. I also love to make crafts and dress up so don’t be surprised if you see a tutorial or an outfit post. I might post about my Chihuahua, Bambi, or about my irrational fear of washing machines. Anything goes. Anything! :0

Why I blog

I started blogging because my boyfriend started blogging. I originally was torn between having a food blog or a craft blog because the majority of blogs that I read at the time were either one or the other. I decided to give them both a shot and started lifeofcarbon as blog for recipes and craft tutorials. It was pretty fun at first, but then life got in the way and I became discouraged.

I’m back now, but for different reasons. I have to put off going to college for various reasons and the boredom is threatening to kill me slowly. Blogging is a way to give myself something to do, plus it’s a great incentive to go out and do things just for the chance to blog about them. I’m also hoping that blogging will connect me with people and prevent me from becoming even more anti-social than I already am. That being said, if you’re just starting out too feel free to email me. We could totally become blogging friends!

You “Vlog” Too?

Yes. I do actually! Vlogging (or video blogging for those unfamiliar with the term) is another one of my hobbies. I love thinking up video ideas and making them come to life. I vlog often, [though not as often as I’d like to] so don’t be surprised if I post a couple of videos or if I announce a new youtube channel or a new crazy endeavor. If you want to learn more about my channels just go to my video page and if you have a youtube account I’d really appreciate it if you subscribed! I’d also love to check out your videos if you vlog too!

    Hey Mariana, your presence is requested at my dinner party. I know it’s still early in the day but I didn’t want you to miss out or someone might eat your food.
