WOOHOO I WON! + Yashisms

Hey y'all! I hope your weekends were super wonderful and relaxing- I know mine was. Anyway, I've got good news. Remember the Brilliant Earth Style Challenge I did last week? Well, I won! My outfit was featured on their Pinterest. It's the little things that count :)

So if you’ve been reading this blog for even a short time now, you’ve definitely read about my little brother, Yash. He’s nine years old, full of sass, and also my best friend. He's super perceptive, and always sees plot twists in Sherlock (which we just started watching!) long before I do.

He's also incredibly photogenic, which upsets me at time, because candids of me look more like this.

Like I said, he's super sassy, and so I've started to keep track of some of the crazy things he says, dubbing them "Yashisms." Take a look and tell me he's not too sassy to handle.

Yash: Are you excited for your birthday? It's in two days!

Me: Yes! You only turn 16 once!

Yash: You only turn every age once.....that's not a reason.

Yash: My entire class knows the Cup Song- we even practice at recess! How do you not know it?

Me: I'm really not coordinated enough. 

Yash: Oh. That makes sense.

Yash: I'm baaaaack

Me: Ugh, why?

Yash: Don't you know I exist to annoy you?

Me: Yashu, you're about to leave for school and your alarm- go turn it off.
Yash: Ugh, no, it needs to learn its lesson.

Me: You're so cute, Yashu. 

Yash: Umm, yeah, because that's my job!

Of course, everything he says is 10 times funnier because he's a grand total of 9 years old. Any crazy kid quotes in your life? Let me know in the comments below! :)

xo, Hima

P.S. Also, I need your help! I recently updated to Disqus so I wouldn't have to worry about no-reply bloggers anymore, because I so hated missing out on all the wonderful conversations I could be having with y'all. The amazing Areeba mentioned that I now show up as a no-reply blogger. I've reverted to the old Blogger profile and checked the "show email" box and all the jazz, but I'm still a no-reply. Is it the same for all of you when I leave comments on your blogs? Has this happened to you?


  1. Your brother is so cute :] I love little brothers! And he's very photogenic. I laughed so hard at the #nomakeup #nofilter hahahaa. I'll check on the no-reply thing now for you!

  2. These are hilarious. Little kids like that are brilliant. My favourite quote of one of my little sisters, when I teased her about being bad at searching for things. "I'm great at searching, I'm just not very good at finding things." Another time, when she poked her head into my room "Your chaos has a different colour to my chaos." I wish I could remember more of the things she said.

    I haven't noticed any issues with reply/no-reply thing but to be honest, I'm not entirely sure what you mean by that either.

  3. Hehe your brother is great! xD

    I have the exact same problem with no-reply also... haven't been able to fix it yet. Was it easy to upgrade to Disqus?

  4. Haha your brother sounds hilarious!
    Thanks for linking up for Monday Morning Gossip. Next time can you please link back to us or add our button to your post? Thanks :)

  5. Congratulations on you win! The little things really are what count. Your brother reminds me so much of my youngest son at that age. He sounds annoyingly wonderful. Visiting from Bloody Mary's Blog.

  6. Your brother is so adorable. I would want a little brother if I knew he would be cool!

  7. It's so true though, haha. I wish I could just naturally be photogenic!

  8. That's hilarious! It sounds like what Edison said about his lightbulb-making attempts :)

  9. Disqus was super easy! It shouldn't take too long, but others have had trouble with not all of their Blogger comments importing.

  10. I know, I can't get enough of it! :)

  11. Thank you! I'll be sure to check you out!

  12. I can't wait until he's grown up and we can go out and do fun things together!

  13. Thank you! We're happy to have ya :)


Thank you so much for leaving a comment! You probably just made my day :) I do my best to reply to every single one, even if it takes a little while. Make sure you're not a no-reply blogger so we don't get deprived of a wonderful conversation!
xo, Hima
