Spring Clean With Me!

Hey daydreamers! How has everyone’s weekend been so far? This post is inspired by Sadie Aldis – she’s an awesome YouTuber and she made a spring cleaning video that got me in the mood to tidy up my space for spring! This post is kind of self-explanatory, but basically, I’ll be showing y’all the process of how I deep-cleaned and organized my room + closet for spring. Hopefully, this is satisfying/inspiring! Let’s get into the post.

First, I took everything off all the surfaces in my room that wasn’t plugged in. This was crazy to see the sheer amount of clutter that was everywhere! I also threw away any trash I found.

Next I cleaned all the surfaces that had been cleared with some spray and a cloth, and cleaned all my mirrors.

Then I dusted everything with a cloth.

After that, I returned all the items that were on my bed back to where they belong.

Moving on to my vanity – I threw away old makeup and organized everything. Here’s a little before and after!

day 2

I also tidied up this little basket that holds my magazines and notebooks and such, it was super cluttered before and now it’s nice to look at!

My desk drawer has kind of turned into a junk drawer. Now that it’s organized, it holds a folder full of pen pal’s letters, a clipboard and notepad, ONE ruler (I had like four in there originally?? Why??), a whiteboard, flashcards, tape, post-its, and gold paperclips, tacks, and binder clips. I’m really happy with how this turned out because now I can actually find things!

I organized all the bins on my bookshelf, which took forever but was totally worth it!! I rearranged things so I could use one of the bins for socks, since my sock drawer is teeny tiny and won’t close. I got rid of a ton of junk that was in there which was so satisfying! Also, all my dance clothes are finally folded – I used to just throw them in there, now it looks so much better and it’s a whole lot easier to find things!

day 3/4

I didn’t do anything on Monday, so not sure what to count this day as? Anyway, as most of my room was organized I moved on to my closet, particularly my dresser.

The top of my dresser was extremely messy, so I put everything in its place and threw all the trash away, and it looks 10x better!

I file-folded my jean drawer from light to dark wash, lol, which makes it easier to find a particular pair (gosh, I have a lot of jeans, I still need to check which ones still fit.)

day 5/6

Finally, I swept, made my bed, and tidied up the pillows on my chair for the finishing touch!

I hope this post was inspiring to do some spring cleaning! This was so satisfying to see the end results and for my room to finally be more organized! Now to see how long it lasts 😅

Also, if you enjoyed this post, you’ll probably like my post ROOM TOUR 2020! And if you haven’t submitted your assumptions for the upcoming Reacting to Your Assumptions About Dance post, you can do that here! Thanks so much to everyone who’s commented theirs so far!

What Are Your Assumptions About Dance?

Hey daydreamers! Another quick post for y’all – in a couple weeks I thought it would be fun to do an Answering Your Assumptions About Dance post! So I need your help – let me know your assumptions about anything dance-related in the comments down below! It can be about pointe, ballet, dancer life, etc. If you need an example, I’ve done a similar post where I reacted to your assumptions about me here and here. Can’t wait to see what you guys come up with! You can expect the post in 1 or 2 weeks. 🙂

Happy Easter!

Hey daydreamers! I decided to take the weekend off posting this week, because we went on a camping trip on Good Friday and today’s Easter! I hope that everyone has an amazing day with family and friends celebrating the resurrection of Jesus and the incredible sacrifice He made for us on the cross. Love you guys so much and have a GREAT Easter!

How to Style A Tennis Skirt!

Hey daydreamers! I know I just did a fashion post last week, but I had no idea what to post and was actually planning on taking a posting break this week, when the white athletic skirt from Old Navy my mom ordered for me came in the mail. I immediately proceeded to try on every single top I own to see what would go with it and I discovered it could make a fun post. So a really similar post to last week is better than no post at all, right? 😛

I’ve seen this tennis skirt trend all over Pinterest. You’re supposed to wear it with a sweatshirt or sweater vest and collared shirt, but I’ve been wearing that exact same outfit to school for years. Why would I want to wear basically my school uniform outside of school? However, I thought the skirt itself was super cute and would be a fun change of pace from shorts, jeans, and leggings! I’ve put together some ways to style it, so hopefully y’all will enjoy and maybe get some inspiration. (The skirt I’m wearing is this one.) Let’s get into it!

Spring Transition Outfit Ideas For March!

Hey daydreamers! Almost exactly a year ago, I did a March Lookbook post. I remember being super proud of that one. I thought it would be fun to kind of re-create that post, updating it with my current style and favorite pieces!

These outfits work well for March because it’s usually still cold enough to wear jeans and a sweatshirt if you feel like it, and on warmer days you can go with a short sleeve and jeans or long sleeve and shorts! Let’s get right into the outfits! This post isn’t sponsored (But hey, if Pura Vida or anyone wants to sponsor me, check out the collab page. 😛 JK!)

Best Friends Tag! (Ft. My BFF Skylar)

pics in ft. image are from pinterest 🙂

Hey daydreamers! I don’t know about y’all, but I’m SO ready for spring break! I’ve been super busy with cheer tryouts this week (I’m actually writing this while I’m waiting to go in, eek!) and I can’t wait for some rest, relaxation, and sleepovers (the last one ruins my alliteration but it’s very essential lol). 

For today’s post, I thought it would be super fun to do the Best Friend Tag! So I grabbed one of my closest friends, Skylar (not her real name), to answer some questions with me over text. Let’s get into this!

March Playlist & Aesthetics (Ft. Free Phone Wallpapers!)

Hey daydreamers! Can you believe that it’s March already?? A year ago this month, the world shut down, which is crazy to think about how everything’s been going on for so long. I had kind of a slump when it came to covid last month, but it feels like things are looking up now, which is super exciting.

Back in January I did a similar post to this where I shared a playlist filled with some of my favorite songs at the moment and a collage that matched the mood/aesthetic of the month and playlist. I liked that post so much that I ending up making playlists for February and March too! I thought I’d share the March playlist for this week’s post, along with an aesthetic collage that reflects the transition from winter to spring and contains a little motivation for your weekend. 🙂

I actually use Apple Music for listening to music, but a follower had an awesome idea to create a Spotify account to share the playlists so I don’t expose my Apple ID! So I kidnapped my mom’s Spotify account (with permission lol), so y’all can listen to the playlist on there. Oh, and I don’t own any of these pictures: they’re all from Pinterest. Let’s get into it!

[link to the playlist in case the embed thingy isn’t working]

I know that I literally say this in every single post, but this post was seriously so fun to make! It was super relaxing to curate the collage, and I’m lowkey obsessed with this playlist. Let me know some of your current favorite songs, because I listen to my monthly playlists 24/7 and love making them longer with new music I haven’t heard before!

Also, if you want to save any of these pins, check out my (recently updated) Pinterest account! Is anyone else excited about the new month?

THIS WEEK’S SHOUTOUT GOES TO Maggie Bryan from the nightingale! Her blog is amazing and she came up with the awesome idea to make a spotify playlist. Thank you so much for commenting!

What do you think of the playlist? Excited for the new month? Have you listened to any of these songs? Any music recommendations?

PS – I almost forgot, I turned the collage into a phone wallpaper as well! Feel free to use these on your phone but please give credit if you share. Thanks!

My School Morning Routine 2021!

Hey daydreamers! First off, I didn’t get a post up last week because of the crazy winter storms in Texas – our power was out for a day, so I decided to take the week off. This was the post I had planned for last week, but school was canceled last week. 😛 So I decided to move it to this week and I’m so excited for this post!

This is definitely a highly requested post, and I thought it would be super fun to show you guys what my morning routine looks like for 2021. Since I didn’t have time to take good-quality pics while still getting ready on time for school, I took most of these pictures after school, but this is still pretty accurate what my school mornings are usually like. Let’s get into it!

7:00 – I wake up from my alarm at 7:00, which is just enough time to get ready by 7:30 while getting the maximum amount of sleep possible. 😛 The first thing I do when I wake up is open my curtain and blinds and stare out the window for a little bit, trying to make sense of the extremely vivid dream I had and wondering why I’m up this early.

7:02 – I head into the bathroom to wash my face with this Neutrogena face wash and my super-soft skincare headband. This is more to wake myself up than to clean my skin, and it makes me feel refreshed and slightly more awake.

7:05 – After washing my face, I get dressed in my school uniforms. We have more of a dress code than a uniform, since not everyone has to wear school-issued items, but we have to have certain length skirts, shorts, or pants in khaki or navy with a white or navy polo shirt. Today I chose my comfy dry-fit khaki skirt with a dry-fit white polo and my cheer team jacket.

7:10 – Next, I do my makeup. Sometimes I wear a tiny bit of BareMinerals foundation, and then I put on my everyday concealer and blend with a beauty blender. I use the Maddie Ziegler Imagination Palate for eyeshadow. Next, I curl my lashes and apply mascara. Finally I fill in my brows with Beauty Concept Eyebrow Tint (which is weirdly dirt for some reason, sorry lol).

7:18 – After that, I put on my watch and jewelry. Today I’m wearing some rose-gold bar earrings from this Amazon earrings pack and my favorite necklace from Kendra Scott.

7:20 – I put a bagel in the toaster and gathered all my stuff by the door while I was waiting.

7:25 – I had a really good bagel with cream cheese for breakfast, and it was super filling!

7:29 – I brushed my teeth, put on shoes and headed out the door.

7:31 – Leave for school!

This post was so fun to make! Let me know any future post ideas or requests down below, since I’m planning out pots for March! 😉 Thanks for reading and I’ll see ya next week!

THIS WEEK’S SHOUTOUT GOES TO amber from dancing for the holy one! Thanks for fllowing and commenting!

Valentine’s Day Outfit Ideas!

Hey daydreamers! Y’all really seem to like my fashion posts, and I really enjoy making them! I thought since Valentine’s day is tomorrow, it would be super fun to share some outfit inspo for Valentine’s day. I love how these outfits are super versatile for what you’re doing on that day – comfy for staying home and watching rom-coms (haha me), cute for a Galentine’s party, or put-together for church. And, of course, they’re all pink and red for the holiday spirit! 😉

I’ll try to say where I got the items, but I don’t always remember, sorry. Without further introduction, let’s get into the outfit ideas!

Ideas & Inspo for a Self-Care Day! 😌

Hey daydreamers! I don’t know about you, but I LOVE a good pamper day. On the weekends you’ll probably find me with a bath bomb, face mask, and a candle, soaking up the good vibes. XD

It’s really important to put others before yourself, and it’s so rewarding to serve others. However, you can totally still indulge in a relaxing day to give yourself a nice break and reset for the week!

Often it’s hard to find a good time to do a “self-care day” since life is so busy. You really don’t have to do these things all at once – sometimes I’ll decide to have a long shower or do a face mask on a random Thursday! You can totally sprinkle these things throughout the week, take a nice afterschool break, or save it all for the weekend. It’s totally up to you!

I’m so excited for this post, so let’s get into the ideas for your relaxing day! Also, this post is inspired by Christina and Camera and Girls’ Life magazine. 😉
