My Winter Break Morning Routine // GRWM!

Hey daydreamers! It’s so crazy that it’s 2020. GUYS IT’S A NEW DECAAAADE!!!! 😛

Anyway, I thought it would be really fun to show you my Saturday morning routine, but since it’s still winter break, my mornings are a little bit different than usual. So, without further ado, my Saturday morning routine during winter break!


9:20 – I wake up around 9:15-ish, even though I meant to wake up at 8:00, but oh well. 😂 My alarm doesn’t go off or anything, I just wake up when my mom comes in and opened my curtains.

9:24 The first thing I do when I wake up is make my bed – which does not usually happen on a regular day. Something about recording your morning for your blog post makes you extra-productive, I guess? 😂

9:30 – Then I head into the bathroom and pull my hair back into a quick ponytail with a scrunchie. The only way I could get a picture of the back of my head is to hold my phone up to the mirror…

9:31 – Then I wash my face. I just use this Cetaphil gentle skin cleanser from Kroger, and I really like it. I try to make sure to wash my face first thing in the morning, because it makes me feel productive and refreshed.

9:35 – Then I apply this moisturizing lotion, but I have this teeny-tiny sample bottle that I got for my birthday, lol! I like this lotion, and it feels really good, especially because I have dry/normal skin.

9:36 – And I also use this rose water spray after moisturizing my face, you just spritz it on and it feels really good!

9:44 – Sorry about the weird picture – I had to use the self-timer on my phone and a really tiny tripod, lol. Then I head back into my room and get dressed. Today I’m just wearing a really comfy oversized pink and grey shirt that my mom passed down to me because it was too small for her, and then some black leggings.

9:52 AM – Then I head back into the bathroom and do my hair real quick – I did my normal half-up/half-down style, and then did a really small fishtail braid and added another elastic to create a little bubble.

9:54 – Next, I do my makeup for the day. First I do my brows, and I use this light brown brow cream from my makeup kit that I got for Christmas, and I use a brow brush from the same kit.

10:01 – Then, I apply mascara. I just use a Neutrogena Healthy Lengths mascara from Kroger, and it isn’t the best mascara I’ve ever used, but it works well and looks natural.

10:04 – Finally, I apply some lip gloss. This one is from that same kit, from Ulta. It’s a little dark, so I dab some of it off with a tissue.

10:05 – Makeup done!

10:30 – Every Saturday since I was a baby, me, my dad, and little sister have been riding our bikes to a donut place that’s a few blocks away from our house. Since my dad wasn’t home this morning, my sister and I rode our bikes by ourself and bought a donut for each of us and brought it home. I got a fresh glazed that was soooo good!

And then I made myself some apple spice-flavored tea (that smells amaaaaazing) in this stormtrooper mug, because I can. 😂 This mug is hilarious. As I sipped my tea, I responded to some comments and read some blog posts.

And thus ends my Saturday winter break morning routine! I hope you guys enjoyed reading this, I had so much fun making this! See ya next Saturday!

My Dream Bedroom Tour + 50 Followers Q&A!

Hey daydreamers! I love how my room is now – it’s teal and llama themed, and I love the gallery walls I made and how colorful it is. But, of course, I’m always daydreaming about what my room could look like if I redid it – pink and grey colors, with golden accents, light wooden furniture, fairy lights and soft furry fabrics…a girl can dream, right? 😉

So in this post, I decided to give you a little “tour” of my dream room using photos from Pottery Barn Teen! Once again, this post was inspired by Hannah @ The Striped Plaid Co – make sure to check out her awesome dream house tour posts!

Also, I have some super crazy exciting news – GUYS, WE HIT 50 FOLLOWERS! (Technically 53 by the time I’m typing this post up!) This is so, so crazy – I just started this blog in like July. That’s not even six months! DD is growing so fast and I’m so grateful for all of y’alls amazing support and kindness. *Reaches out of the computer to hug each and every one of y’all* 🤗🤗🤗

To celebrate, I decided to host a Q&A with you guys! Basically, you can ask questions in the comments, and in two weeks on November 16, I’ll answer them all in one giant post! I’m so excited for this, and I think it will be a ton of fun! Make sure to leave your questions in the comments!

Okay, enough rambling – let’s get started on my dream room!

(Also, this isn’t sponsored by PBTeen or anything! I just love their room decor, so I used photos from their website.)

**ALL PHOTOS ARE FROM PBTEEN.COM UNLESS OTHERWISE NOTED**

Color Scheme

Made by Emmie with Canva

The four main colors would be a blush pink, grayish brown, cool black, and metallic gold. I think these colors go super nicely with each other! Also, white is another main color, but that wouldn’t really show up, so…

Bed & Bedding

I really love this adorable bed, and it’s in the perfect color! I really like the style of the headboard and the side drawers are really cute. I love the light brushed wooden color, and it goes so perfectly with the color scheme!

THIS BED IS LITERALLY AMAZING! It’s totally my style, the perfect colors, and that comforter is absolutely gorgeous. Plus, I really love all the decor and polaroids in the picture! I don’t know if I love the platform bed style though…maybe if it was taller?

Desks, Nightstands & Vanities

I really love this cute white desk! The angled legs are really cute, and I also really love the chair. The calendar at the top is pretty, too!

Also I love the gold on this minimalistic nightstand! This could totally be my room because I ALWAYS have books everywhere – lying on the floor, in piles on the corner, on top of my nightstand, next to my bed…

This nightstand is also totally my style! Just by the pictures so far, you can get a pretty good idea of what I like. 😂 Also those rose gold headphones are amazing, lol! This nightstand is pretty similar to the last one, but I like it a little better since it’s a little smaller.

Also this desk is AMAZING! Well, more of the general color, chair, and design and decor of the stuff on top of it, but I’m not a huge fan of how the wood print looks. Otherwise it looks really cute! I would probably want a chair with a back though, not just a stool.

AND THIS VANITY IS GORGEOUS! Sorry, got a little excited there…😛 I don’t currently have any makeup (Although fingers crossed for Christmas! 🤞😉) I think this little setup would be so cute and helpful for when I do. I might add a little more color to this, with some succulents and stuff…but I love the built in brush and curler holders, along with the clear-top storage drawer inside the vanity! I also like how it attaches to the wall, so it wouldn’t take up that much space, and I could just put a small stool under it for when I would use it.

This vanity is also cute! I mean, I obviously like the other one a lot better (As you could tell by that very thick paragraph) but I like how simple and charming tis one is.

Chairs & Lounge Stuff

This grey chair is so pretty and simple! I would probably put it at my desk. It looks like a comfy velvety material, which would be really cute, and of course the gold legs are perfect for the color scheme.

I LOVE this fuzzy, furry beanbag chair! How cute is that?? I think this would be super fun to relax and read in.

Photo from CB2

This stool I would put under that vanity table! I love the idea of a fuzzy stool like this. I would probably want one with a thicker/fluffier seat. This is so cute though!

Bookshelves & Storage

This is pretty cute! I don’t love how the tops curve like that, and I would probably want solid sides – do you know what I mean? Probably not, I’m horrible at explaining things. XD

I like this bookcase a lot though! I think the drawer adds a cute touch to it. Since I have a lot of books and stuff, I’d probably have two of these in my dream bedroom.

These bookshelf are also really cute! They match perfectly with that bed, too. I really love the paneled wood, and the creamy brown/gray color.

Miscellaneous Stuff 🙃

This simple and pretty circular mirror is so pretty! In my dream room, I would put this next to my bed, kind of like how I have a mirror in my room now. I love how simplistic this is!

And these succulents are so cute! I’ve always wanted succulents for my room – I have a really tiny fake one in this little llama mug, but I don’t keep it in my room. I’d probably have to stick to fake succulents, since I pretty much have a black thumb…😂

This fuzzy pink shag rug would look really cute in front of the bed in my dream room! (Haha, I can picture everything in my room perfectly!) Plus it would tie in some more of that blush pink and add a pop of color.

Also these pink curtains are really pretty and would add some color too! I like how they’re sort of sheer, but not. Welp that didn’t make any sense

And that’s it for this post! I had a ton of fun making this, and I can totally picture everything I listed here in my room. You can definitely get a good idea of my style from this: minimalistic, trendy, girly, and aesthetic! Also anything pink or gold…

Also, don’t forget to comment below your questions for the Q&A! I’m so excited for this, and I can’t wait to see all of your questions! And don’t forget to share this post to get the new cozy-themed November wallpapers!

Do you like PBTeen? How would you describe your decorating style? What does your room look like now? Have you ever redone your room? Any questions for the Q&A?

Birthday Shopping Haul! (Ft. A CRAZY EXCITING Announcement!)

Hey daydreamers! Ahh, I can’t believe that I’m going to be 12 in 12 days! (Well, actually 11, because I’m posting this late but OH WELL.) That’s crazy! To celebrate, my Grandma took me on a shopping trip for my birthday, so today I’m going to be showing you what I got! Thanks, Grandma!

About that CRAZY EXCITING announcement mentioned in the title…well, you’re going to have to wait until the end of the post – BUT IT MAY OR MAY NOT BE BALLET RELATED. *is freaking out*

*BORING DISCLAIMER STUFF* I’m not trying to brag about what I got, no hate please, I’m just showing you, blah blah blah. Let’s get started!

First, my grandma took me to get my nails done, and I’m obsessed with this copper color! Thanks, Grandma! I mean, this obviously isn’t a shopping item, but…

First off, I got this cute sparkly notebook from Claire’s! It has the words “Pretty little thoughts” on the front, and comes with a little golden pen. I’m so excited to write in this once I finish my current diary!

Claire’s had this buy 3 get 3 free deal, so I got five different nail polishes! I got a dark pink, light blue, matte pastel purple, white, and a clear coat. I’m definitely excited to paint my nails more, and this was a big item on my wishlist!

Of course, I had to get some scrunchies from Justice! I’m addicted. I have way too many scrunchies, but I love these gold and mint teal ones! I’m super excited to wear these.

I also got these cute jeans from Justice! These are super comfortable skinny jeans, and they’re light wash – my favorite! I love the little embroidery and the faded look. These are so cute! I wore them today and GUYS THESE ARE SO COMFY! Plus they go great with my scrunchies.

Next, I got these adorable light pink leg warmers from Target that I love! They’re so comfy and cute. I’m super excited to wear these, especially when – oh wait, you’re going to have to wait until the end of the post. 😉 MWAHAHA

Also from the More Than Magic line, I got this cucumber melon sheet mask! I looove sheet masks, and I’m really excited to try this one out.

I also got this sun kissed summer-scented body lotion! It feels really good on my hands. I’m not 100% a fan of how it smells, (but I do think the scent is growing on me!) but it’s really soothing to wear!

From Target, I also got this 5-pack of lip balm. I really needed these, since I’m running low on all of my lip balm and my lips are allllwaaays chapped. They all smell pretty good, and I love the different scents and flavors!

I also got this cute athletic grey tank top from Target. It’s super comfortable, and it’ll go perfectly with those jeans! As a dancer, it’s pretty important for me to be able to move in what I’m wearing, since I’m constantly stretching and practicing. Plus, the top is cute!

I also got these adorable purple/pink/blue marble leggings from Target! I love the gorgeous pattern on these leggings and all the cute little details, like the crisscrossing at the ankles and stitching on the sides. They also feel super comfortable and I can totally breathe and move around in them! I’m wearing them right now with a matching tank top that I have.

Okay, last but not least, we have the item I’m most excited about…a Quip toothbrush! I’m so excited to open this! Also, I love how the copper matches my nails PERFECTLY, lol.

When you open it up, you’ll find a code to order refill batteries and brush heads, the brush itself in a plastic tube, and a pamphlet thingy that has brushing tips, toothpaste that you can get, how to get started, why Quip, and more!

And here’s the brush! I literally brushed my teeth in the middle of this post because I wanted to try it out so badly, and IT IS AMAZING. It’s like the best of both worlds, regular and electric, all wrapped up in one (aesthetically pleasing, lol) toothbrush!

I hope you guys liked this post! Once again, huge thanks to my Grandma for taking me shopping, I had so much fun! I’ll probably do a separate birthday haul post with the things I’ll get for my actual birthday, and of course I’ll show you guys what I did!

Hmm, anything else? Nope? Alright then, thanks for reading, see you next Saturday! *waves*

Kidding…I’ve kept you in suspense long enough! (I mean, you probably figured it out, but…) IT’S TIME FOR THE SUPER IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT…I’m getting my pointe shoes!

*Squeals* If you skipped the post and scrolled down to the announcement, GO BACK AND READ THE POST. Okay? Done? Good! I’m going to my first fitting on October 19, and I’m so excited! I found out Wednesday, and I’ve spent the past few days hungrily devouring as much knowledge as I can: I’ve watched a ton of YouTube videos, the making of pointe shoe films, read articles, and I’m even reading this book called The Pointe Book! It’s really good, and I’ll definitely do a review soon!

Are you as excited as I am that I’m finally getting pointe shoes? Which item is your favorite? Do you like the new More Than Magic brand from Target? Opinion on electric toothbrushes? Light or dark wash?

12 Things For My 12th Birthday // Wishlist 2019!

Hey guys! So my birthday is coming up in exactly 19 days, so I’m trying to start thinking about what I want to ask for – which is super hard this year, because I’m past the stage of flipping through toy catalogues and circling stuff, but I feel guilty asking for super expensive stuff like a new laptop.

So after a whole lot of thought, Amazon searching, and list-making, I finally came up with my wishlist for my twelfth birthday, and I thought I’d share it on here! Let’s get started!

PHOTO COLLAGES: Made by me, Emmie, with Canva. Images from Google, Amazon, Redbubble and Canva.

» HydroFlask

Pretty much every single girl at my school has one of these trendy water bottles, and I think they’re super cute and I love all the different colors they come in! I’ve also been wanting to start a sticker water bottle, so this is perfect! I would probably get it in white with a straw cap.

» Stickers!!

This goes with the last one: stickers for my HydroFlask! There’s this website called RedBubble that has a bunch of cute ones. I would want to get a lot of colorful VSCO girly ones (lol), since my HydroFlask would be white. I like the ones that come in sets of one color, like pink or yellow!

» Electric Toothbrush

Okay, I know this sounds like the lamest birthday gift ever, but I really need a new toothbrush – I’ve had my electric toothbrush since I was seven or something and it’s super gross, plus the brush head falls off constantly! I really like this toothbrush from Quip, plus they send you new brush heads and toothpaste every three months! I definitely need this one!

» Silk PJs + Pillowcase

Did you know people spend about 26 years of their lives sleeping? (So says Google, at least.) So it’s pretty important to have good sleepwear! Silk is great for your skin and sleep, plus I’ve heard it’s pretty comfy! This is definitely a big item on my wishlist.

» Shoes!

I think it would be fun to get some white Converse or maybe rose gold tennis shoes for my birthday! I pretty much have two closed-toe shoes that actually fit and I can wear to school, plus my slip-ons are getting pretty dirty!

» Letter Board

I already have a marque board with one row, but I think it would be fun to have a letterboard that I could hang on my wall and write different messages on!

» Fitness Watch

My old fitness watch is pretty beat up (also, pretty sure I lost it) so I think it’s time for a new one! It doesn’t necessarily have to be a FitBit (although that would be pretty cool!), just something cute and functional!

» Nail Polish

I definitely want to get back into painting my nails more, but I only have 3 good colors! This would definitely be fun for my birthday since I’m planning to have a spa-themed party! I think the colors in this picture would be cute.

» Jeans

I definitely need a few pairs of jeans! I only have 1 that fits me right now, so it would be nice to have a couple more. I think light wash would be cute, maybe some with rips or cuffs!

» Journal + Pens

In my opinion, you can NEVER have enough journals, lol! When I finish my current diary I usually like to have another notebook ready for me to start. I like spirals with aesthetic designs! I also would love some pens; I got the cutest ones from Eccolo Ltd. for Christmas last year, but they all died out!

» Brush Pens + Calligraphy Book

This sorta goes with the one above! I’ve been wanting to get more into calligraphy, and I think a handlettering book would be super helpful getting started! I know how to do a few fonts, but unfortunately I lost all of my brush pens…

» Books!

Of course, I have to have books on my wishlist! A few titles I’ve been wanting to read: Girl On Pointe by Chloe Lusiask, The Competition by Maddie Ziegler, and 12 Before 13 by Lisa Greenwald!

Thank you so much for reading! I hope you guys liked taking a peek at my 12th birthday wishlist – plus, this is a super great gift guide if you’re looking for birthday present ideas for 11 and 12 year old girls!

What’s on your wishlist? Did you like the collages? Which item do you like most? When’s your birthday?
