Red Queen :)

I LOVED the Red Queen! If you love dystopian/sci-fi  books, you will love the Red Queen! here’s a blurb that I made up:

Seventeen-year-old  Mare Barrow lives in a world that’s divided by blood. The Reds are treated like slaves for the Silvers, who have god-like abilities. Mare lives in the Stilts, a small Red village, where she thieves her way through everyday life with her best friend, Kilorn. But one day, Mare meets a strange boy and her life will never be the same.

If you get bored in the beginning, make sure you keep on reading because you’ll be in for some good (and bad) surprises. 😉


I Love the TTPM toy fair! #TTPM #TakeAKidToWorkDay

I went with my mom for a take your kid to work day to New York. I had sooo much fun in New York today at the TTPM toy fair! My mom is a blogger, and she takes dozens of pictures and videos to post on her blog, Snapchat, Instgram, Twitter, Periscope, Pinterest, Facebook, and more. She works with marketers who hire her to post about their brands new products.

I absolutely loved the TTPM Toy show. There were all these different new popular brands like Candilicous Bubbles, Wet Head, season 5 shopkins, and new Barbies.  Those are just some of my favorites.We went around to each booth and asked the marketers questions like, “When does your product come out?” or “What does this new toy do?”

This is us eating the Candylicious Bubbles. Grape was our favorite!



I found out so much about all the cool new toys and what my mom does every day for work. My brother and I helped my Mom film dozens of videos about new toys and products. We’ll use all of these videos for our families website, Classy Mommy, and my website, One Kids Life, to show people all the new products and tell them all the details and demonstrations about them in case people want to buy this new stuff.

After we had checked out most of the brands and took a zillion pictures and videos, we went to meet some of the marketing people that hire my mom that work for Under Armour and Tommy Hilfiger. They have an office in the Empire State Building. So cool!!!

We went to Empire State Building to visit them in their office. We saw new fashions being developed. I found out they planning clothes to make in 2017 – one entire year from now!!!! Then, they took to the very top of the Empire State Building on the 86th floor and even the 102nd floor. We got to see Central Park, the Chyrsler Building, The Freedom Tower, The Flat Iron building, and even the Statue of Liberty. We were higher than a helicopter when it flew by!

I had so much fun!

I love Jacky Ha-Ha!!! #HaHaBookClub #JamesPatterson

Jacky Ha-ha is an AWESOME book about a girl who’s mom is away at war and her dad is mysteriously not coming home till like 9:00 at night and not telling Jacky and her 6 sisters why. Jacky always gets in so much trouble at school. She probably would be good, but she’s afraid of people making fun of her stutter, so she turns everything into a joke. When she is convinced to try out for the school play so she can trade in detentions, she meets Mrs. O’Mara. Mrs O’Mara is super nice and funny, and Jacky loves her.

This Book by James Patterson is SOOOOO good. You should definetely read it.

Thanks Mom for buying this book for me when I was sick with an ear infection! I loved it so much!

I medaled at the Junior Olympics!! #Swimming #FunnestSport

I qualified for the swimming Junior Olympics in the mid atlantic region. It was amazing! In the 50 Fly, I got 5th place!!! I was so surprised when I dropped a second because I had already dropped  4 seconds this year!! I got 30.53. Next year I hope I get a 29! Guess what? My Fly time this year is better than my 50 FREE time last year! I can’t believe it!


I’m so excited! Me and my friend Maddie both got JO jackets. I love them! They have the events that we made it in and our last name on the back.


Earthquake Science Fair Experiment Idea with iPhone App

Earthquake Science Fair Project Idea with IPhone appFor the science fair this year, I really wanted to use technology, so I looked for an app that could go with a project. I found Seismometer, and it’s perfect! It measures vibration force, so it’s good for like an earthquake experiment, which is what I was wanting to do. Here’s what you should do if you want to do this project:

  1. Find something that you can shake (“house”) and tape the iPhone with the app Seismometer onto it
  2. drop a basketball next to the house from the same height each time but change the materials underneath your house
  3. count how many squares on the little grids on the screen are filled up by the line. That shows you the vibration force, or how much the basketball shook the house. (the lower the better)
  4. you can graph the results and your done!! :)

Good luck!! I got a Distinguished Honors and I hope you do good if you do my experiment idea!!


5 going on 15!!

Oh my gosh look at this picture of me!!! I’m probably around 5 then, but with those sunglasses I look so old!! It’s in September, Probably in 2010. I was just looking up on Google “Kenzie Padilla” and found a TON of super cute pics of me!! This was definitely one of my favorites, along with some of the following:

(I was so surprised to find all of these cute pictures of me when I was little!! You should google yourself too!! 😉  )

I love BB-8!! #starwars #bb8

Isn’t he AWESOME?!? Santa gave him to me and Kyle for Christmas. Did you know you can control him with your phone? BB-8 is also adorable!! He is sooo cute, and definitely my favorite character from Star Wars. I Haven’t seen the new movie yet, but we’re going to see it this week. I’m so excited! I looked online to see how to draw him and I found it. I also went to sketchpad and made an illustration of him! But, anyways, if you are a Star Wars fan, (like my brother) or even just want to or have seen the new movie, you should definitely think about buying BB-8, we only have the small one, but it’s STILL amazing. I love him! 

Merry Christmas!

Im soo excited! I finally got a computer!! ( which I’m typing this post with now 😉 ) Thank you Santa so much! I love it.  That was by far the best present this year. Another thing I got was this awesome book with quizes in it about random fun facts, like how many matches can the the bigest tree in the world make? over 5,00, over 5 million, or over 5 billion?It was 5 BILLION!!! But instead of just having the answer on the next page or something, Next to each answer there’s a little golden box, kind of like those lottery things that you can do. There’s a little red chip too to scratch off the golden stuff above the box to find out the answer. Another cool thing about it is that its not always just checks or x’s to show if you’re wrong or right. Some of the things that they have besides the checks and x’s are smiley and frowny faces and thumbs up and down. I love this and these are PERFECT for swim meets! 

Winter Garden & Holiday Dollhouse Tour #LundbyMakeover

Tis the season for snow! Even my Lundby Dollhouse is ready for the winter holidays! Instead of a Summer garden,  now there’s a cool winter garden. I love it SOOOOO much! All these accessories and cute decorations you can swap up make playing games with it even more fun all year long.

Check out our video for all the details. You know what’s also really cool?  It’s not like they forgot about the patio for the summer. There’s a little bump of snow to show that it’s still there  – there is even a HILL built into it. That’s also really cool because they put a little low bump, or like a super small ditch in the hill  so the little boy can actually slide down the hill in his sled for real! I love it! The sled and snowy hill are my favorite part of the winter garden.

Winter Accessories You Can Buy for your LUNDBY Dollhouse

I love how every season you can transform your dollhouse. With all the Christmas holiday decorations, cookies, gifts, and fireplace it really feels like Christmas! Plus you can change the weather too by adding the snow garden! Here are some things you can get:

  • A winter family dressed wearing cute winter clothes like jackets and hats
  • Skis for your family, a snowman, a sled, and also an igloo that can be plugged in!
  • A gingerbread house that can light up
  • Cookies that come with two little aprons
  • a Christmas tree!
