What to Ask for Christmas: Wishlist Ideas for Teens! (+Giveaway Winner)

disclaimer: this post is NOT sponsored!

Hey daydreamers! I hope that everyone had a FANTASTIC Thanksgiving! πŸ˜‰ I’ve been spending this break getting holiday posts scheduled for the blog, so I’m actually writing this before Thanksgiving happened yet. How has everyone been doing?

Raise your hand if you’re as excited about Christmas as I am!! πŸ™‹β€β™€οΈ For me, Christmas starts the day after Thanksgiving – no sooner or later! I might start listening to music a little bit before then, but not before Thanksgiving break at least. πŸ˜‚

Right now is about that time of year when every single relative is asking for wishlist ideas. If you’re anything like me, you have this long running list of things you want throughout the year, but forget everything you’ve ever thought of when it’s actually time to ask for things! πŸ˜‚ So, I’ve gathered some ideas for teens/tweens to ask for, and this also serves as the *perfect* gift guide for any teenage girl in your life. Let’s get right to it!

kendra scott jewelry

{https://www.kendrascott.com/jewelry/categories/necklaces/elisa-gld.html?dwvar_elisa-gld_stoneColor=682&cgid=necklaces#start=9}

My friends and I are all obsessed with Kendra Scott! I only have one pair of earrings from them, but my friends have these beautiful pendant necklaces. This item is definitely going on my wishlist this year, and you can totally ask for any jewelry from there! They have a ton of different rings, necklaces, and earrings in so many different styles and colors.

camp trunk

{https://everythingsummercamp.com/collections/camp-trunks/products/happy-camper-trunk?variant=12372484096115}

Okay, this item might seem a little out of place at first, but if you go to a summer camp like me these footlocker trunks are a must! I’ve been wanting one forever, but they’re a little expensive to just buy for camp. Christmas is the perfect opportunity to ask for a nice footlocker trunk, and they even come in fun colors and designs!

pura vida

{https://www.puravidabracelets.com}

I’m a huge fan of this brand and love all of the jewelry from here! While Kendra Scott has more classic, elegant jewelry, Pura Vida has a beachy, summery aesthetic. They’re known for their bracelets, but they have a ton of cute rings, necklaces, and earrings too! I’m definitely adding some rings from here to my wishlist, and any teen girl would *love* something from this brand.

makeup

Not everyone is a makeup person, but if you’re into it, you should totally ask for makeup for Christmas! I’m asking for the Imagination Palate from Maddie Ziegler’s collab with Morphe and Glossier Boy Brow. Glossier is a great brand, or you could just ask for a Sephora or Ulta gift card to shop for your own!

phone case

If you have a phone, you could ask for a phone case! There’s a ton of cute ones out there from different brands like Loopy and Casetify, and there’s so many prints, colors, and kinds you can get. I love this cow print one!

dancewear

If you’re a dancer, Christmas is *the* perfect time to get all the leotards you’ve been wanting! I only have three leos right now, so I really want to get some fun colorful ones for Saturdays and some basics for class. A great place to shop for leos is Discount Dance or a local dance shop! More ideas for dancers are foot stretchers, ballet skirt, or trashbag warmups.

polaroid printer

{https://www.amazon.com/Fujifilm-Mini-Link-Smartphone-Printer/dp/B07XM91NSZ/ref=sr_1_2?dchild=1&keywords=polaroid%2Bprinter&qid=1605978823&sr=8-2&th=1}


I love the idea of a polaroid printer! I have a polaroid camera, but it’s hard to get the picture exactly right. There’s tons of photos on my phone that I wish I could turn into polaroids for my bulletin board, and this printer solves that problem! It also comes in pretty colors like pink, black, gold, and white.

FIBO STEEL Earring Set from Amazon

{https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0823JKF6C/?coliid=I1VA81NNEKJI9N&colid=16GTUFKRX6ON7&psc=1}

I recently bought this set from Amazon with my own money, and I love it! I know there’s already a lot of jewelry on this list, but I’m kind of obsessed with this and I’ve been trying out a new earring each day. I love how they all match, so you could mix and match and looks great if you have double piercing! One thing I would say is that they feel a little more cheap than if you would pay $19 for one pair instead of 12, but it’s definitely a great deal and the perfect way to build your earring collection!

cute face masks

We wear masks to protect ourself and others, but why not look fashionable while you’re doing that? XD This Christmas I definitely want to get some fun face masks, maybe ones with a floral or Christmas theme in cute patterns and colors! Hannah from The Striped Plaid makes some adorable ones on her Etsy shop, so make sure to check that out! (Once again, not sponsored – I just love her shop! 😁)

Before we go, I have a quick announcement! Do y’all remember my giveaway with Chaudenade from before Halloween? (Psst…my code EMMIE20 is still available for 20% off your purchase through December 1 πŸ˜‰) Our giveaway policy is that the winner must respond within two weeks, and the winner that was chosen hasn’t responded. So, I decided to pick another winner!

A quick reminder what the winner will be getting: Four Chaudenade stickers, a bonus sticker to make up for the fact that two of them are Halloween (lol), some fun little surprises including Washi tapes, candy, and more! And the winner is…*drumroll please*

LIBERTY ABIGAIL!

Congrats, Liberty! I’ll send you an email ASAP about your prize! Make sure to check out her blog linked above. Thanks again toΒ ChloeΒ for sponsoring this giveaway, even if it’s a little late πŸ˜›

Thank you so much for reading this! Once again, I hope that everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving, and that everyone will have an awesome holiday season! I hope that this list helped you either pick out gifts for a teen girl or figure out what to ask for as a teen girl. See you next week! πŸ˜‰

How was everyone’s Thanksgiving? When does Christmas start for you? What are you asking for Christmas? Did you add any of these items to your wishlist?

ROOM TOUR 2020! // birthday bedroom makeover

(Pssst…make sure you’re not in the WordPress reader for the full experience!)

Hey daydreamers! I’ve missed y’all! I ended up taking a much-needed break from blogging last week because…it was my 13th birthday! I had the best birthday ever, starting with a beautiful balloon arch made by my parents, iced coffee and chicken minis from Chick-Fil-A (YUM), followed by an amazing birthday party with a few of my close friends! We stunted, did spa stuff and makeovers, and watched a really sad movie lol. It was such a great day and I’m so grateful for my parents and amazing friends!! πŸ€— What have you been up to this week?

As you could tell from the title, it’s finally time for the long-awaited ROOM TOUR!! I’m so excited for this and I love reading these types of posts, so I hope you guys will too! Since my birthday is over and my room is pretty finished, I decided to finally show you guys the “after” of my room makeover. I know that not everyone gets to do this and I feel really lucky and grateful for this room! (Also, isn’t it cool that my dream room post from awhile back is kinda my room now??)

Okay, without further ado, let’s get into the room tour! (Also, any white blobs are covering up personal information, just FYI.)

What’s On My Phone (iOS 14 Edition!) + How to Have an Aesthetic Homescreen

Hey daydreamers! Look at me getting this post done on Friday! *pats self on the back* (Update: I didn’t finish until Sunday, but oh well. XD) Low-bar accomplishments aside, today I’m doing a What’s On My Phone post! I did a similar post a few months back, but I’ve *completely* reorganized my phone since then and made it so much more aesthetic and functional! The new iOS 14 update recently came out, too, and in this post I’ll also be showing y’all how I made my homescreen both fun to look at and accessible using the Widgetsmith app. Let’s right to it!

This is my phone/phone case! I have a rose gold iPhone 8 (I used to have my grandma’s old 6, but when it stopped working with my DexCom I was able to get a newer one!) with a clear case and matching pop socket. I do have a crack on the back, which really annoys me, so I might get a solid case to cover that up. My pop socket is also scraping, too, lol.

When you open my phone, this is what it looks like! I found this super cute Christian collage wallpaper on Pinterest that I just downloaded right before this post. I’m minority obsessed with it and I think it’s super cute!

Tip #1: Choose a fun, busy wallpaper for your lock screen, but stick to a simple one for your home screen so it doesn’t look as cluttered. You can also chose a theme or color-coordinate with your widgets (I’ll show you how to do that in a bit).

When you swipe to the right, I just have the little section thingy that has widgets in it – mine are weather, calendar, music (don’t judge, I was randomly listening to High School Musical the other day XD), my blood sugar app (btw, 300 is wayyyy higher than it should be, but don’t worry lol), the Bible app, and WordPress stats.

And this is my home screen! It took me like 20 minutes to arrange every thing in color folders and make all the shortcuts and widgets, so I’m very proud of it. XD I also found a pretty, yet simple wallpaper from Pinterest that matches the color of my shortcuts!

At the top, I added a super pretty calendar Widget from Widgetsmith. (To make it, first make sure you have the Widgetsmith app downloaded. Go to “Add Small Widget” —> “Calendar Widget” —> “Day & Date” —> “New York” font —> “Tint Color” gray —> “Background Color” in your color of choice, I chose Pale Pink –> add it to homescreen in top left corner!)

Then, I added shortcuts to four apps for easy access: Pinterest, my dance company forum thing, my blog, and the Bible app! I made each one pink, except the Bible app since I like the cover, to match the widget.

Tip #2: Create a calendar widget or other small widget in Widgetsmith using NY Font for an elegant look. You can even make color-coordinating shortcuts for your favorite apps at the top for easy access!

Then, in the middle, my favorite part: the app rainbow! My mom, sister, and I recently watched The Home Edit show on Netflix, which is basically these funny “sassy” ladies who organize people’s kitchens and closets and things. (We call it the “sassy organization show” XD) In their book, they love a good ROYGBIV system (so do I!) and recommended using it to categorize your phone. I was pretty skeptical at first since I liked my “shelf” method, but I gave it a try and I’m super glad I did!

Not only is it super satisfying to look at, it’s really functional, too. Everything is arranged in order of frequency of use, and it’s super easy to find things! I also added some fun emojis to name the folder.

Tip #3: Arrange all of your remaining apps by color by separating them into folders based on app icon color! Add fun emojis and be creative! Arrange each folder by frequency of use.

These are all the apps I have! I pretty much don’t use half of them XD Like I said, they’re arranged by color in folders in most-to-least used order.

At the bottom, I have my three most important/used apps: DexCom G6 (an app that connects to my sensor that tells me my blood sugar – super important and the only reason why I have a phone!!!), iMessage, Safari, and Camera.

Tip #4: Store your MOST used and important apps in the little folder space at the bottom. This is prime real estate here. XD

The next page is purely for decorative purposes, but it makes me happy to look at πŸ˜‚ I basically made three large widgets on Widgetsmith and added some encouraging Bible verses and messages.

(In case you were wondering, I’m trying to memorize Phillipians 4:6-7 and it says: “Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.”)

If you swipe all the way to the right, I have the app library feature that comes with the iOS 14 update that I really like! It makes it easy to search for apps and organizes them super nicely automatically.

Tip #5: If you’d rather focus on looks versus function on your home screen, go for it! You can use the app library feature to easily find the app you need.

how to add a widget to your home screen

Okay, that’s it for the What’s On My Phone + Tips part! Next, I’m going to be doing a suuuuper quick, mini-tutorial on how to make a widget and add it to your homescreen. There are a ton of tutorials out there on this, so I’ll be explaining it pretty simply. πŸ˜‰

Hold on an app for a few seconds and this little thingy should pop up. Tap on “Edit Home Screen”.

Your apps should go into what I call “Jiggly mode” XD and at the top, you should see a little plus sign. Go ahead and click on that!

This will make the “Add widgets” come up.

Scroll all the way down to the bottom and tap on “Widgetsmith” and then chose whatever widget size you want! To add a certain widget, tap on the title (mine says Small #2) and select the one you want.

Voila! A new widget has appeared! You can move it around the screen where you want to place it. If you want to remove it, click the minus sign and remove.

some more inspo πŸ™‚

And that’s it for the tutorial and tour! (Ooh alliteration 😝) Once again, I’m super sorry this post is a little late! I think I’m going to start posting every weekend, rather than specifically Saturday, so that way it’ll be a little easier to get a post up in time. I’ll be aiming for Saturday, but don’t be shocked if you see me on Sunday! πŸ˜‹

I hope you guys enjoyed this post and maybe it gave you some ideas on how to organize and customize your phone! Just a friendly reminder, as fun as it is to organize your apps and all of that stuff, don’t forget to go outside, read a book, and talk to humans. XD

Oh, one more thing: NEXT SATURDAY IS MY BIRTHDAY!!!! I’m SO excited! Since I don’t want to spend my whole birthday blogging, I’ll be doing a post ahead of time to schedule for Saturday. Bye daydreamers and see you next weekend!

This post was so fun to make! Once again, I’m super sorry about the lateness of it. I’m still getting used to my super duper busy schedule and have been slowly figuring out how to squeeze in blogging with everything else! Thank you guys SO MUCH for all of your support and participation in the last couple of posts, and thanks again to everyone who asked questions! If you have any posts you’d like to see, don’t hesitate to let me know through the comments or contact form! Love you guys so much & I’ll see y’all next week. Bye daydreamers!

my after school routine!

Hey daydreamers! You guys love my routine/day in the life type of posts and I always have a TON of fun making them, so I decided to do an after-school routine now that school’s back! Also, thank y’all so much for all of your amazing post suggestions on last week’s post, I have sooo many ideas now and I’m really grateful for your help!

Normally I do routine posts as sort of a “vlog” where I take pictures and write down what I did throughout the day, but I decided it’d be easier to write what I typically do after school and add some pictures (and Bitmojis) with it. Let’s get right into it!

Continue reading “my after school routine!”

all the reasons why i’m excited for fall (+fall aesthetics)

Hey daydreamers! First of all, sooo sorry this post is late. It’s been super hard to get posts up on time lately with school starting! Today’s post is on Monday instead of Saturday (oops) and it’s a little bit shorter. Hopefully, I can get back on track and schedule some more posts this week! Second, thank you so much for all of the love on my future self letter post! I had a lot of fun making it, so I’m really glad to hear that y’all enjoyed it.

Third of all…IT’S FALL, Y’ALL! Well, almost. In Texas, temperatures are still in the 90s, so it doesn’t quite feel like fall yet. For this week’s post, I decided to make a list of all the things I love about fall and why I’m so excited for it, and include some fun fall pics from Pinterest! If you want to save any of them, you can go to my Pinterest board here. Honestly, I’m a lot more excited about fall than normal this year – I’m normally a summer gal! But since summer’s been so weird this year and I’m pretty sick of the heat, I’m really looking forward to the fall season. Anyway, let’s get straight into the post!

  • cheering at football games!
  • sweater weather & wearing boots, flannel, and jeans again
  • finally wearing my beloved oversized sweatshirts
  • warm drinks
  • curled up on the couch, reading a book on a rainy day
  • going to the pumpkin patch
  • halloween!!
  • my birthday in october!
  • thanksgiving
  • candy corn
  • pumkin spice everything
  • thanksgiving break!!
  • trick-or-treating (if we’re allowed this year πŸ™‚ )
  • cheer season!
  • decorating for fall and halloween
  • cool weather
  • hogwarts starting (jk)
  • cozy outfits
  • back to school
  • fuzzy socks
  • pretending the leaves are fall-colored (that doesn’t really happen in texas :P)
  • jackets
  • leggings
  • turkey & mashed potatoes
  • for it actually not to be 90 thousand degrees for once
  • movie marathons
  • listening to folklore and other autumn-y songs

And that’s it for the post! It’s definitely a lot different than what I normally do, but I really enjoyed it and it *totally* got me in the mood for fall. Like, if you’re not excited for fall after reading this, there’s something wrong with ya. πŸ˜‚ It’s also a bit shorter, too, but I think it was fun to write and I hope y’all enjoy this quick post!

Also, before you go, I need your help! Please leave some of your post ideas for me in the comments, since I’m working on getting some new posts scheduled and I would LOVE your ideas and input! Definitely don’t feel like you have to, but let me know in the comments your post ideas! Love you guys!

Are you excited for fall? If not, did this post make you excited about it? πŸ˜‰ What’s your favorite season? Did you like the aesthetics part of the post?

dear future me… // writing a letter to myself at the end of junior high!

Hey daydreamers! I’m BACK, and in full swing, thanks to a random burst of inspiration and motivation to blog. πŸ˜‚ I have been SO BUSY the past couple of weeks, because I just started school! And let me just tell you…adjusting from having absolutely zero obligations or due dates, 80% free time, and being so insanely bored that I was way too excited for school to start than the average 7th grader should be, to 30 hours of homeschool/homework a week, a full school day 3x a week, cheer twice a week, dance four times a week, chores, AND keeping up with friends has been HARD. On top of that, I had a *lovely* sty that only just went away and some serious writer’s block, so I definitely needed the 2/3-week break I took! However, I’m SO grateful to be back at school, in a routine, and seeing my friends. I definitely prefer being busy to being bored, even if it’ll take a bit of adjusting at first!

Anyway, I’m back and I have a super fun post this week! I’ve seen a couple of “Dear Future Self” letter posts lately, and I really wanted to write one too! I decided to write this to myself on the last day of 8th grade, meaning I just completed junior high. If I (hopefully!) still have this blog in 2 years, I’ll revisit this letter and respond to myself! Here’s the letter I wrote [anything un-italicized and in brackets like this is stuff I added to the letter to make more sense to you!]

Dear future self,

Hey! It’s the 12-year-old (almost 13) version of you, from September 4, 2020. My first day of 7th grade was Monday, August 24th, and you just had your last day of 8th grade today! Woohoo, you MADE IT! I hope finals went well and that this summer will be totally awesome.

Junior high so far is EASY – it’s just like riding a bike! Except the bike is on fire and you’re on fire and everything’s on fire and you’re drowning in a pile of homework. In all seriousness, even though it can be super stressful and is a huge jump from 6th, I’ve been really enjoying 7th, even with the new building and the limited seats and masks and all that, it’s been SO good to be busy, even if that means a few math tests!

I hope that you’re still blogging, even if it’s not every week, and you’re still best friends with Taylor, Riley, Barkley, Lulu, & Arrow [codenames, lol]. PLEASE tell me that everything is back to normal, or at least almost normal, and that 2021 and 2022 have been *way* better years than 2020. 2020 stinks even more than Chewy’s butt when he needs a bath, and that’s saying something, [especially considering I don’t normally say butt on my blog lol]. What is the world even like now? Do you have social media? Are masks still a thing? Can you hug random people if you felt so inclined? Is the world + life in general getting better?

What’s been the best and worst things about junior high? Have you made more new friends? Have you done homework or blogged in a coffee shop yet? πŸ™‚ Did you ever write that novel you keep putting off? Are you still dancing? Did you make company? Are you still in cheer? Have you done an extension or full-up yet? Are you on track to playing Clara in the Nutcracker someday? What does your room look like now? What is your little sister like? What are YOU like? Did you like your teachers, your classes, your schedule this year?

Your 12-year-old self is doing pretty good and is definitely enjoying life and having fun but is definitely a little stressed. XD I want to be a journalist/reporter or an endocrinologist when I grow up, and I listen to Taylor Swift, Kenzie, the Jonas Brothers, and Surfaces – ooh, and the Hamilton soundtrack, which just came out on DIsney+! I’m terrified and excited about the school year ahead, and it also freaks me out to think I’ll be 14 when I’m reading this (and 13 way too soon)! Right now I’m trying to read my Bible every night, trying to memorize more verses, and I hope you still are! How was Camp *insert name* last summer? What session did you go to? Was it as fun as last year? Do you still talk with the Driftwood girls? Have you made it past a shoe size 4 yet?

And now for the mushy part: Remember that yourself at the beginning of 7th grade would totally look up to you, and this letter is a reminder of how far you’ve come! YOU DID IT – you made it past 7th AND 8th grade, you survived a global pandemic and the worst year ever, you only have 2 years left to get your driver’s license. You have family and friends that love you and serve a God who loves you even more. DON’T STRESS (hahahahahahahaha) and really enjoy this summer and make it the best one yet before high school (!!!). Don’t forget to laugh at yourself and love your imperfections.

I can’t wait to meet you – and I can’t wait to BE you!

Lots of love from yourself on Sept. 4, 2020, age 12 years, 10 months, and 25 days ❀

Then I put it in an envelope along with $1 in cash, just because it’s fun to find money randomly, wrote “DO NOT OPEN UNTIL THE LAST DAY OF 8TH GRADE” on it, and hid it at the bottom of my sock drawer. I also set a phone reminder for May 2022 to open the letter in case I forget!

And that’s my letter to my future self! I can’t wait to read it in two years and respond back to myself. I hope it inspired you to make your own letter to your future self, whether it be for the end of the school year, at your next birthday, a milestone, your future husband or kids, or the end of the pandemic! I definitely missed you guys and I’ll see you next week!

Are you going to write a letter to your future self? Any tips for starting junior high? Do you like these types of posts?

HUGE Back-to-School Supplies Shopping Haul!

Hey guys! Before we get onto the post, I just wanted to let you know that you can now use my code EMMIE20 at checkout to get 20% of your purchase from TwoFifty Scrunchies through August! And if you haven’t already, enter our giveaway here!

Hey daydreamers! For me, back-to-school shopping is a serious end-of-summer ritual. I love finding cute new notebooks and feeling a fresh new start! Actually, when we got back from school shopping, we found out that our school pushed back the first day from August 10 to August 24. I still decided to go ahead and do this post!

I’m honestly soooo ready to go back to school. This has, quite literally, been the longest summer of my entire life, and there’s not a ton you can do (things are opening up now for me, but at the beginning we couldn’t go anywhere!) I’m looking forward to an actual routine, being busy, studying and doing homework (honestly, who am I? πŸ˜‚) and, of course, cute new school supplies, which is what this post is about!

Also, if you haven’t yet, make sure to read my what’s in my backpack (beginning vs. end of the year) post before you read this one! Okay, let’s get right to it.

my favorite youtubers!

What do you think of the new featured image style?

Hey daydreamers! Welcome or welcome back to my blog! 😊 Lol, why do I sound like a YouTuber all of the sudden? Speaking of…today’s post is a list of my favorite YouTube channels! Yup nobody saw that coming I was a bit stuck on what to post this week, so I figured I would finally do a post that’s been sitting on my post idea list for awhile and share some of my favorite YouTubers!

Before we get started with the post, I want to give a quick thank you to you guys! πŸŽ‰ We hit 200+ followers! πŸŽ‰ We currently have around 210 total! I’m so grateful for each and every one of you (except for the random Arabic dudes who keep following me and I’m pretty sure are bots πŸ˜‚), and it seems crazy to me that over 200 people decided they liked my blog enough to follow me! Thank you so much for all of your support, I love love love you guys! πŸ’–

Okay, now onto the post! I’m subscribed to a lot of YouTube channels that I like, and all of them are really different, so I separated them into categories like “Lifestyle” and “All-time Favorites”. Also, none of these channels asked me to promote them or anything. Let’s get into it!

what’s in my cheerleading bag!

Hey daydreamers! As some of you may or may not know, I’ve been at cheer camp this week and it was super fun (and insanely exhausting)! Since we aren’t allowed to do stunts and stuff like that because of coronavirus, they basically shoved four halftime dances, the fight song, a million chants, a bunch of cheers, technique, and a bunch more into our brains, plus a ton of conditioning and stretching within five days. It was a lot, but also super fun and I got to see my friends who are also on the team!

At my school, it’s K-12, so there’s one cheer team for junior high (the team I’m on) and one team for varsity/high school. Our JH team is super small this year, so we’ll only have one stunt group, and my best friend and I are going to switch out as flyers and I’m so excited!

I’ve done a What’s In My Backpack and a few other dance bag/volleyball bag posts, and all of them have done super well and I had fun making them, so I decided to do a post showing you guys my cheer bag for camp! Without further introduction, let’s get started!
