Best View Of Seattle Skyline: Capitol Hill


I had to babysit today, and the parents have a pretty cool view of seattle in their balcony, so I decided to grab some food and have a BBQ on the roof top. It was a beautiful day and I love seeing the space needle. I love seattle, especially during the summer. It's so beautiful and the amazing view of downtown seattle. If you have the chance to visit seattle, make sure you go to a roof top, so you can get a better view of the space needle. 

Exploring Downtown Seattle: Pike Place Market


Today was a sunny day in seattle and that rarely happens. So I decided to throw on a cute summer dress and explore downtown seattle. I went to the gum wall near pike place market and toke lots of cool and amazing pictures. Then I explored pike place market and tried a lot of yummy foods. To end the day I went to watch a movie at a theater and it was my first time watching despicable me 3. Funny movie to watch with kids.

How To Make Money Online As A Teen | Quick & Easy


Summer is officially here, and that means spending a lot of time with our friends watching movies and going shopping. Most of those activities require money and when you're a teenager, you can't apply for most jobs because you're underage. So I decided to share with my viewers four ways to make money when you're a teen.

Sell Old Clothes

We all have old clothes that we don't wear. Did you know you could make quick cash by selling old clothes? There's so many places that buy old clothes like Plato's Closet or Buffalo Exchange. There's also online shops like Poshmark, Depop and Tradesy that you can sell used clothes for money. 


Babysitting is the perfect job for a teenager because people are always going to need childcare. What I did when I was younger was ask family friends and neighbors if they needed a babysitter and most of the time they did. There's also websites like Sittercity and Urbansitter where parents post what day and time they need childcare, and if you're available you can apply.

Sell on Etsy or Ebay

If you're creative and love making DIY crafts, what you can do is sell them online on Etsy. Also, if you have old phones and computer, you can sell them online at Ebay or amazon. Look around the house for things you don't need anymore like books, headphones, shoes or cameras and sell them on amazon or Ebay for money.


When I was younger, I never had a job. What I did was I cleaned my room, washed all the dishes and when I was done. I would ask my parents money to buy new shoes. And most of the time they said yes, because they could see I put in work and that I wasn't lazy. You could also ask neighbors if they need help with anything like cleaning the garage or washing their car. And you'll clean and help them for an exchange of money.

How To Get Clear Skin Overnight | Adashofvanilla


When I was younger, I had lots of acne and oily skin. As I grew older, I figured out ways to get rid of acne, oily face and have clear skin. Changing my diet made a big difference in my acne. I started eliminating processed food from my diet, and starting eating more fruits and vegetables. I went gluten and dairy free and I notice that I rarely got a pimple and I overall felt better. I also started using more natural skin care because a lot of store brought face products have harsh chemicals. If you can't eat it, why apply it to your face? Today I'm going to share with you my favorite face mask. It's perfect for oily and dry skin. It cleanses your skin by removing all the dirt and makeup on your face. Leaving your skin soft and moisturized. I love this DIY face mask because it's natural, free of harsh chemicals and you probably have these items at home.

2 Egg whites

1 Teaspoon of Chia Seeds

1/2 of Ripe Banana

Mix it all together and leave it for 30 minutes. Once it's a jelly consistency, apply it to your face and leave it on for 10 minutes or more. Now wash your face, and you'll notice a big difference on how clean and soft your skin feels.


Everyday Summer Makeup Routine | Adashofvanilla


Summer is officially here and that means a new makeup routine. During the summer I don't like to wear a lot of makeup because of the heat and humidity. I also like my makeup to be sweat proof because the worst thing ever is having your makeup melt off your face or transferred on to someones shirt when you hug them. So I decided to share my summer makeup routine and how I keep my makeup sweat proof during hot weather. Watch video below.

How To Get Rid Of Anxiety And Stress Naturally | Adashofvanilla


We all have days when we're full of anxiety and stress. Life isn't perfect, things could be going great and then suddenly something happens and you feel out of balance. As someone who deals with anxiety, I've discovers quick and easy ways to calm my stress levels when needed.


Whenever I'm stressed out and I can't stop over thinking, I stop everything I'm doing and take a quick cold shower. When I first jump in and turn the cold water on, I feel the ice water on my skin and there's a shock to my system. I can't think of anything but how cold the water is, but it takes strong will power and discipline to continue. After I'm done, I suddenly feel a huge relief like I've done something wild like swimming in an ocean full of sharks. I notice that I'm full of endorphins, I feel alive and I'm more alert. I find that taking a cold shower is a quick and cheap to shift my mood when I'm stressed out. Throughout the day I feel a sense of calmness and that I can overcome anything.

528 HZ Music

Everything in life is vibration. When you're stressed out and full of anxiety, you're in a low vibrational frequency. A great way to change your vibration is by listening to music. When I'm stressed out I love listening to 528 HZ or 432 HZ frequency music and meditate. The universe vibrates in 528 HZ frequency and that is also the same frequency as love. 528 HZ frequency has said to be so powerful it can heal and repair damage DNA, and bring peace and harmony to everything around it.


Sometimes the best thing to do when you're dealing with anxiety is to get down to the root and fix the problem. I'm an overthinker and sometimes my mind focuses on all the negative, like what could go wrong. The best way I found to get rid of anxiety is to face the fear and reward myself after. For an example, if I have a job interview and I start over thinking about how I'm never going to get the job, and I'm not qualified. I force myself to attend the interview and reward myself afterward with a new bag or chocolate. It makes facing the fear a lot more easy.
