Independence Day Blog Tour Celebration Collab: What I ❀ About My State

Hey daydreamers! Today’s post is going to be extra special. Mary Elizabeth came up with the idea for a fun 4th of July blog tour to celebrate our independence throughout the blogosphere! Her, Diamond & I are hosting the blog tour, and this is my post for it!

I have a kind of sad update for you guys – on Sunday, just a few hours before we were supposed to leave for camp, I found out that two counselors tested positive for COVID-19, and they had to cancel last week’s session – the week I was supposed to go. It was super hard to hear that, but we tried to make the best of our time in San Antonio and got to visit some family and friends! We rescheduled for session 8, which is on July 19th, and I’m hoping and praying they won’t cancel it and I’ll get to go! It was a super bummer at first, and I’ve got to restart the 14-day quarantine and prep/pack all over again. More staff got it, so they canceled this week too, and I really hope session 8 won’t get cancled! I have cheer camp this week (yay!) some fun posts planned, and a special surprise for Diary of a Daydreamer’s birthday, so stay tuned for that!

For the tour, I decided to make a post about all the things I love about Texas, which, I admit, was a pretty daunting task at first. I mean, Texas is 268,597 square miles (a couple thousand square miles bigger than France) and is home to 29 million people – how am I supposed to represent all of that in one post?! I tried my best to make a list of the things I love about living in the Lone Star State, plus some cool fun facts and, of course, Independence Day stuff too. So let’s get straight into it! Some of the photos are mine, and others are from Pinterest.

Reacting to Your Assumptions About Me: Part 2!

Hey daydreamers! First off, I want to give a HUGE thank you to everyone who subscribed to the email list and entered the giveaway! It’s so amazing to do this giveaway to kick off the launch of our email list and work with SP Scrunchies! If you haven’t entered yet, make sure to enter the giveaway for a chance to win two scrunchies from The Striped Plaid Co! πŸ’› I’ll be announcing the winner either next week or the week after so stay tuned for the results and make sure to enter before then!

Second, I’m so happy that you guys liked Part 1 of me reacting to your assumptions, and thank you so much for all of your amazing submissions! I originally planned for this to be a single post, but you guys ended up giving me a ton more assumptions than I had planned (thank you!) so I decided to make a part 2 so I could react to all of them! This time I used images from Pinterest to go along with the post, and let’s get into the assumptions!

I’m Starting An Email List! + Scrunchie GIVEAWAY With thestripedplaidco! (closed)

Make sure you’re reading this on the site so the formatting and forms work!

Hey daydreamers! If you remember, I’ve been dropping a few small hints here and there about a super-special post coming up. Well, as you might’ve guessed from the title, I’ve got some really exciting news for you guys today – I’m starting an email list, and I’ve partnered with Hannah from The Striped Plaid Co to host a giveaway to celebrate!

wait, hold on. What’s an email list again?

I’m glad you asked! πŸ˜‰ An email list is a way to follow a blog, but it’s more personalized and there’s a ton of cool benefits that come with it. For instance, you’ll not only get a notification whenever a new post is up, but you’ll also get monthly updates, fun freebies (like wallpapers and clipart!), and even access to exclusive giveaways like this one!

If I’m already following your blog through WordPress, do I need to subscribe? Do I have to unfollow you on WordPress to subscribe?

One of the coolest parts about it is that you can follow through WordPress and through the email list – there’s no need to unfollow! And if you’re already following my blog through WordPress, you can subscribe to the email list too so you’ll get all the awesome benefits mentioned above (and you’ll be able to enter the giveaway, too!)

That sounds cool! What kinds of emails will i be getting, and how often?

Don’t worry, you’ll only be hearing from me once a week or less. You’ll be getting a notification email whenever there’s a new post, and at the end of each month, you’ll get a monthly update that includes exclusive content and freebies! And you can unsubscribe anytime if you ever change your mind.

Great! How do I subscribe?

You can subscribe right here!

Okay, hopefully you read all of that and didn’t just scroll straight down to the giveaway. XD Now, for the moment you’ve all been waiting for…the giveaway!

What you’ll be getting:

Floral Cotton Scrunchie  Scrunchie With Bow  Spring image 0

  • You must have your parent’s permission to enter or be over 18.
  • You must be subscribed to the Diary of a Daydreamer email list (we will be checking!)
  • You’ll need a valid email address that we can contact you by, and you’ll need to (privately) share your shipping address so Hannah can send you the prizes!

What Are Your Assumptions About Me?

Hey daydreamers! First off, I’m so sorry that I wasn’t able to get a “real” post up this week. Today was my little sister’s birthday (yay!) so I couldn’t get together a post, and I never got around to it on Saturday or Sunday. I’m so sorry, and I’m going to try to get lots of posts scheduled!

I thought that it would be super fun to do a “Reacting to Your Assumptions About Me” post next week! If you’re not sure how it works, Mary recently did one of these posts and hers is so fun to read! Hannah from The Striped Plaid also did a post like this last year. Basically, you’ll tell me in the comments below what your assumptions about me are – things that you think are true about me but you don’t actually have proof of. Think, “You live in the United States” or “You have three pets and one sibling”. Then I’ll be reacting to them in a future post!

I had an idea to do a mini-photoshoot to go along with the post, but I can’t decide which one! I created a quick poll so y’all can let me know your opinion.

Make sure to leave your assumptions in the comments below! My reaction post should be up this weekend or next weekend. Have a fantastic day, and I’ll see you next weekend with my reactions/answers to them! Bye! πŸ‘‹


Changes to the Blog! + SURVEY!

Hey daydreamers! So you might have noticed that lately I’ve been really inconsistent and disorganized with this blog. My posts haven’t been going up on Saturdays like they’re supposed to, and everything just feels slightly off.

So I thought some changes definitely needed to happen around here! Don’t worry – nothing too drastic is happening. I’m not quitting blogging or anything. I just thought a few changes might need to be made to get things working smoothly around here!

design

Don’t worry, the ballerina theme is going anywhere (I paid like $20 for those graphics, sooo….πŸ˜‚)! I’m thinking about switching my theme over so it feels new and fresh, and also switching up the fonts. The ballerina featured image is getting kind of old, too, so I thought of a cool Polaroid idea to accent the ballerinas! What do you guys think? Is there anything about the design you think I should change?

schedule

Lately, I’ve been having trouble getting posts up by Saturdays, because Saturday afternoon I’m like “shoot, I need to make a blog post” and then I start one but I run out of time and energy to finish it. If I don’t finish by Sunday, then it usually never goes up…

So I’m thinking of doing more of a scheduled approach that spreads the workload throughout the week:

  • Monday: Finalize what the post will be
  • Tuesday: Make a list of stuff that needs to get done in order to make the post
  • Wednesday: Write/photograph most of the post
  • Friday: Finish post and schedule
  • Saturday: Before it goes up, add finishing touches and images!

Hopefully this will keep me on track a little better!

community

I don’t know why, but lately I’ve been slacking on reading and replying to emails and comments. I’m so sorry if your email has been waiting in my inbox and I haven’t replied yet! I’m going to try to be a lot better about replying to comments and emails right away.

Also, I’m going to start leaving a comment on every post I read, because I know how happy I get when someone leaves a comment on my blog and I want to spread that to other people! πŸ˜„ I haven’t been reading a ton of posts lately and I feel like I’ve been missing out on all of y’alls incredible content in the blogging community, and I’m so sorry about that!

content

I’m going to start posting more specific content related to the categories on my blog. Right now, my categories are beauty, blogging, books, dance, fashion, journaling and art, lifestyle, music, travel, uncategorized, and writing.

I’m thinking about starting a new series about how young people can start blogs called Blogging Elementary! I started out when I was just nine, and blogging has helped me in so many ways. Most bloggers right now are teenagers (even at twelve I’m pretty young for a lifestyle blogger!), but I think we could encourage young bloggers to start creating and we can expand the blogging community, especially with doll blogging! What do you guys think?

I’m thinking about starting some other series, too – what do you guys think?

survey

Finally…I decided to make a survey to see what YOU guys think! It would mean absolutely a TON to me if you took the time to fill out the survey – it only takes a few minutes. πŸ˜€ And make sure to share this post so more people can take the survey and DD can be better than ever!

Take the survey here!

see ya next week!

Thanks for scrolling through this post and checking out the new changes! Please make sure to take the survey and shoot me a comment below on what you think! πŸ˜€

And remember, if you share this post by reblogging, pinning on Pinterest, sharing on social media, emailing a friend, or any way you’d like, leave a comment letting me know how you shared it and you’ll get 3 FREE desktop wallpapers delivered straight to your inbox! This month’s theme is yellow and I’m super happy with how it turned out!

So there’s my challenge for you guys I guess – be yourself on your blog! Thanks again to everyone who has left a comment or read my posts over the years. Here’s to more years being a blogging barefoot gal! πŸ™‚ (Also, Eeyore says thanks!)

JO @ PANANAW!!!

*Confetti flies* Congratulations Jo! You won the Blog of the Year Award!! I’m so happy and excited for you! *hands trophy over*

And now, for Jo’s speech! Unfortunately, we don’t have a speech from her this year, but here’s her inspiring speech from last year’s awards when she won Best New Blog.

”Wait, what?

I won?

I actually won an award?

Oh my word, I can’t believe it.

Thank you people for deciding I had the best new blog of 2018. I’m so shook right now. I can’t believe that a whole bunch of you thought I was good enough to be nominated for an award. Thank you so much to my parents, for letting me have a blog, to my brother and sister for inspiring me to start one,  to Gracie M, Clara, Rebekah, and Enni for encouraging me to keep going, to my bell pepper plant for being the source of my inspiration, to my laptop for not shutting down on me, to every single one of you who voted, to my fellow nominees, you deserve this more than I, and finally and most importantly to God for giving me the gift of blogging.

We have the amazing freedom of speech, of expression, and of marshmallows. Let’s use that freedom to build each other up and make someone smile this year!” – Jo

*wipes tears from eyes* Thank you so much for that speech last year, Jo! You totally deserved this award!

And that’s a wrap for the Emmie Awards 2019! I hope you all have a wonderful year in 2020. Here’s to new beginnings, new memories, new experiences. Here’s to 2020!

And remember, even if you didn’t win or get nominated for an award, I want to remind you that you are an incredible, amazing blogger, and that the Emmie Awards are meant as a fun way to discover new blogs. Congratulations to everyone!

What I Got For Christmas 2019!

Hey daydreamers! Merry (late) Christmas! I’m sorry my posts have been kinda all-over-the place this month so far. I’ve been crazy busy with filming my stop motion, traveling, dancing in the Nutcracker, and the Emmie Awards that I haven’t really had time to post something that wasn’t Emmies-related or a reblog!

Now that Christmas is officially over (waaaaah!!!!), I finally have some time to sit down and write a post! Today, I thought I’d share with you some of the things I got for Christmas. I’m really grateful for everything I got (and I’m not trying to brag or anything, I just thought you guys might like this post since you enjoyed my other hauls!)

Enough rambling/disclaimers/excuses – let’s jump right in!

First I got this cute little cookie kit from my Aunt! I love the llama on the front (and y’all know how much I LOVE LLAMAS). The cookie even has a little slit in it so you can put it on your mug. How cute is that? I haven’t tried it out yet, but it looks fun!

I also got 12 Before 13 by Lisa Greenwald, which is the sequel to my favorite fiction book ever, 11 Before 12 (besides the Hunger Games lol), from my aunt! I’ve already read it (haha) and it was soooo good. This series is my favorite!

Then I also got the third book in the series, 13 and Counting! I’m in the middle of this one right now and it’s really good so far! Kaylan and Ari are amazing characters, and I still can’t decide who I like better.

Now I have the whole series, yay!

I also got the third book in Maddie Ziegler’s series, The Competition! I’m obsessed with these books and I love Maddie, so I’m really excited to read this.

Lastly, I got the young readers edition of Misty Copeland’s autobiography, Life In Motion. I’ve read the non-adapted version and really loved it! The cover is so pretty on this one…Misty Copeland is my favorite ballerina. And that’s it for the books!

Why does my wall literally look gReEN in this picture?? The creepy thing is, this used to be the EXACT COLOR of my walls :-O

Next category: dancewear! My grandma took me shopping at the dance store that I got my pointe shoes at, and I got some leos there. The first one is this royal blue spagetti-strap, which is my level color so I can wear it in class! It fits perfectly and feels really comfortable.

I also got this cute black one! Since it’s not my level color, I can only wear it on Saturdays/Sundays and during rehearsals. I really love the thick black straps and the cut on this one! It’s super comfy too.

And last but not least of the dance stuff, I got new ballet shoes! I’ve had leather ballet shoes for quite some time now, and they were getting really dirty and old and gross. The leather was really annoying me, and all of my friends had switched to canvas shoes a million years ago! So I decided it was definitely time to switch to canvas and I’m soooo glad I did – they’re so much easier to point your foot in, and they’re really comfy and make turning a lot easier.

Next, some clothes I got from my mom! I’m OBSESSED with my new Simply Southern tie-dye hoodie. It’s SO COMFY ahhhhh! Every time I put this sweatshirt on, I literally start getting SLEEPY because it’s so comfy!

I also got this pink llama long-sleeve t-shirt from Simply Southern! Isn’t the llama so cute?

Then I also got this volleyball one, also from Simply Southern, but short-sleeved.

Moving on to some random stuff! I got another Hydro Flask, but this time a light blue, and it’s 8oz. I like how it’s so much smaller and lighter than my other giant one (it’s like 30oz!)! I love my giant one but it doesn’t fit in any cup holders, which is annoying, and it’s really hard to carry around. This one I can just stick in my backpack and be on the go!

I also got these cute grey Nike sneakers. All of my shoes are either super girly or trendy (like my pink slip-ons, black high-heel boots, and white Adidas sneakers), but these tennis shoes are more athletic. They’re super comfortable!

I also got some fun scrunchies in my stocking! Fun fact: I own 14 scrunchies after this. Which is nothing compared to my friends: one of them has over 60 and my BFF accidentally got 181 in packs from Amazon!

Oh, and I got these body butters from my aunt. The olive and coconut ones definitely smell the best! They feel really smooth on your skin. I haven’t really used them much, but they’re sooooo fun to smell *inhales scent*

Then my little sister got me this 2020 calendar from the Dollar Store! Isn’t it cute? πŸ˜›

I also got this calligraphy set from my Grandma! I didn’t show the whole kit here, but there’s also a ruler, t-square, and some fountain pens. The only problem is the instructions don’t exactly tell you how to put the cartridges into the fountain pens, so I’m having trouble getting started….πŸ˜‚

My mom also got me this cute pink purse from Franchesca’s, and I’m obsessed with it! I love the chevron pattern, and the color is my favorite, and the material feels really nice.

I got the Amandarachlee Doodle Planner from my mom and I’m so excited!! I got the pink (of course) and it’s so, so cute. I’m really excited to use it!

I got my first pair of Kendra Scott earrings from my aunt!! *squeals* I’m so excited to finally have Kendra Scott! All my friends and our moms are obsessed with it. I got these really cute bronze/gold ones that are in between dangles and studs, and I’m obsessed with them.

And second-to-last, I got…an Apple Watch! This one is Series 3, I believe. It’s silver with a white band from my Grandma! I really like it because I can play music, do workouts, track steps, check email, respond to texts, and see my blood sugar on it!

And finally…I GOT MY FIRST MAKEUP KIT!! I was so excited to open this on Christmas morning! It comes with three tiers of different makeup stuff: the first one has a bunch of different eyeshadows and some eyebrow cream, then the second has bronzer, blush, and highlighter, and the third has lip and brow pencils along with some lipstick and stuff like that.

Lastly, I got some brushes, a beauty blender, eyeshadow palate, and lip gloss. I’m really excited!

Whew! That was long. High-five to you if you read the whole thing! I hope y’all enjoyed taking a look at what I got for Christmas. Once again, I’m not trying to brag or make anybody feel bad, I’m just sharing something with you that I thought you guys would like to see!

See ya on New Year’s Eve for the grand reveal of the Emmie Awards winners!

What did you ask for Christmas?
