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. πŸ™‚

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!

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. πŸ˜› 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. πŸ˜› 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! πŸ˜‰ 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!

What does your school morning routine look like? What time do you get up for school?

Ideas & Inspo for a Self-Care Day! πŸ˜Œ

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. πŸ˜‰

What’s In My Type 1 Diabetes Bag + T1D Q&A

Hey daydreamers! I’ve got a bit of a different post for this week, because as of Wednesday, January 27, I’ve had Type One Diabetes for three years. (Seriously, I almost wrote five, that’s how normal it feels now!) I’ve gotten a bunch of new readers since Blogmas (hey there!), so some of you might not know that I have diabetes. If you don’t know what it is, basically my pancreas (an organ) doesn’t make insulin (a hormone for regulating blood sugar). Because of this, I have to take insulin through a pump and constantly monitor my blood sugars and carb intake to avoid my blood sugar going high or low.

I thought it would be interesting to show you guys what I keep in my diabetes backpack that I carry with me everywhere! At the end, I’m also doing a little Q&A answering all of your questions about life with T1D. Let’s get into it!

What To Watch On Netflix & Disney+ for Tweens/Teens!

Hey daydreamers! Being thirteen is a really annoying age to be when browsing Netflix. πŸ˜› Everything’s either too young and cheesy, or too old and inappropriate. I’ve been obsessed with quite a few shows recently, so I decided to compile a list of my favorite Netflix/Disney+ shows so that y’all could find something to watch! πŸ™‚

Before we get started, I just wanted to announce that WE REACHED 300 FOLLOWERS! Ahhh, I can’t believe that so many of you actually voluntarily read and enjoy my posts, and I’m SO GRATEFUL for all of you daydreamers! ❀ LOVE YOU GUYS!

Alright, let’s get into the post now! πŸ˜‰ All the images I edited are from Google.

A Cozy January Playlist + Aesthetics

Hey daydreamers! Before the regularly scheduled post, I have a few super fast announcements to make. πŸ™‚

First, if you’re in the reader, I redesigned the blog a little bit! I thought it would be fun to freshen up the fonts and graphics a lil’ bit for 2021, and I’m super happy with it! If you’re in the reader, you can click here to check it out πŸ˜‰ Also, I redid my Pinterest account to match the new blog design, so make sure you’re following that as well.

I also thought it would be fun to do a follower shoutout at the end of each post, so I’ll be picking someone from the comments of last week’s post to link to their blog or mention their name! Okay, props to you if you actually read that, and now we’ll get into the post XD.

Dance Q&A + Chat | ft. My Pen Pal, Natalia!

Hey daydreamers! I’m back with another fun collab for this week! Natalia and I exchanged addresses when she won one of my giveaways, so we decided to become pen pals and have written to each other ever since. If you didn’t know already, I’m a dancer, and Natalia danced for a long time. So, we decided to do a little Q&A about dance where we each asked each other 10 questions!

My 2021 New Year’s Resolutions + How To *Actually* Keep Yours | Collab With Arabella!

Hey daydreamers! This is the first official post of 2021, which is kinda crazy?! I feel like 2020 was both a super long and short year at the same time? After last year, I’m going into 2021 with fairly low expectations, but I’m definitely ready for a fresh start!

This week’s post is a collab with Arabella from Sparks of Ara! She reached out to me about a New Year’s-themed collab, and we decided we would both do a post sharing our resolutions for 2021 as well as some tips on how you can keep yours! Don’t forget to check out Arabella’s post here.

What I Got For Christmas 2020!

Hey daydreamers! I know I said that I’d see y’all in 2021, and I was originally planning on taking a break after Blogmas. But I really like to read these types of posts, so I thought it would be fun to show what I got for Christmas! We still have another Christmas to go to at my dad’s side of the family, but here’s what I got so far.

Also, I know that everyone says this, but it’s true: Christmas is not about the gifts, it’s about the best Gift of all – the birth of our Savior! I’m not trying to brag about what I got in any way or try to make anyone feel bad. Like I said earlier, I personally enjoy reading these posts.

We opened presents on the morning of Christmas Eve (Santa came early πŸ˜‰), and the next day we drove up to our cousin’s house and ate an amazing Christmas dinner and exchanged more gifts! We spent the night there and then went to our grandma’s house before heading home. I had a great Christmas eve/day, and I hope you guys did too!

First, I got some cute leopard-print Texas earrings from my cousins! These are so cute!

I also got two other pairs of earrings from them.

I was SO EXCITED when I opened this one from my mom, I’ve been wanting the Pura Vida wave ring forever and I’m obsessed! It goes with everything and is super cute and summer-y!

Also from Pura Vida, my mom got me this pretty white bracelet and the Type 1 Diabetes Awareness bracelet.

This one is maybe my favorite present! I was SO excited when I opened this, I was not expecting to get this haha and I’m so happy to finally have a Kendra Scott necklace! It’s gold with a pretty rose quartz jewel, and I’m wearing it right now as I type this! Thanks mom!

This TurnBoard is from my grandma, and it’s already helping my pirouettes! It’s really fun to use, and although it took a little bit to get the hang of it, I think it’ll help my technique a lot!

Of course, since it’s Christmas 2020, I got some cute Old Navy masks in my stocking πŸ˜‰

Eee, I’m so excited about this one! I’m a huge fan of Maddie Ziegler, and I’ve wanted this palette ever since she came out with her makeup collab with Morphe. The shades are stunning, and I’ve had a ton of fun experimenting with different looks! My favorite shade is Butterfly Fantasy, since it goes with anyting, but Angel is pretty because it changes hues with the light. Overall, this palette is super high quality!

My mom got me my first foundation from BareMinerals.

I also got some more makeup from my mom, some brow tint and Elf concealer!

I also got some Burt’s Bees lip balm and body lotion in my stocking, which is perfect for my because my hands and lips are super chapped and Burt’s Bees is super high-quality.

I got a face mask in my stocking, which I’m so excited to use because I love spa stuff like this!

I forgot I asked for this, so I was super surprised when I opened these Converse haha! I’m so excited about these, I immediately put them on and walked around in them almost the whole day XD They got a little bit dirty since I wore them at my cousin’s house.

From my cousins, I got this book called Charlie Thorne and the Last Equation by Stuart Gibbs. I always need a book to read before I go to bed, and I already started this one and it’s super exciting, full of twists and turns and conspiracies! I would definitely reccomend this one.

I got this super fun long-sleeve Christmas shirt from my mom! I wore it on Christmas day, and my cousin also wore one that said Fa-La-La-Llama on it, so we were matching lol!

I got a rock salt lamp from my ballet company big sisters, and it’s SO pretty and relaxing!

For my early Christmas present, my grandma took me shopping at this amazing dance store in the city, and I got a bunch of dancewear from there! First I got this super comfy basic Bloch leo in black.

I also chose this fancy Gaynor Minden one with a zipper down the front and a high neck, and it’s really cute!

I found this teal lace skirt on sale, and I always get a lot of compliments on it. It’s super fun to wear!

This one is one of my favorites that I got. It’s a simple camisole leo with a V-neck and really pretty back straps!

This one is another favorite – I finally have a patterned leotard! It has this gorgeous black-and-white design on the front, and the back is mesh with velvet lining all along the straps.

I got this fun gift box from my aunt that has all this fancy spa stuff! It came with fuzzy socks, a really good scented candle, a relaxing lavender eye cover, some lip balm, and Himalayan bath salt. I can’t wait to use all of this!

Finally, I got the Loopy rose gold marble phone case! It’s so pretty, and I like how the loop makes it really easy to hold while taking blog pics!

I hope that you guys all had an amazing Christmas! I would love to hear all about in the comments below! Once again, I’m super grateful for everything that I got! I might update this post after Christmas on my dad’s side, but if not, I’ll see ya next year! πŸ˜‰

I’m so grateful for all of y’all – I wish I could give you one giant, virtual group hug! Thank you so much for supporting my blog in the one and a half years I’ve had it, and I can’t believe how much this little blog has grown! I love you guys πŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ€—

I’m kind of amazed that I was actually able to complete Blogmas! This was my first time ever doing it, and it turned out to be really fun and rewarding! Although it was a little stressful, I managed to make 12 posts this month, plus my regular Saturday posts at the beginning of the month! I couldn’t have done it without all of y’alls encouragement and engagement on the posts! I’m so glad that you guys enjoyed Blogmas, and I hope that it was fun seeing a new post pop up in your reader everyday!

Most popular post: Nutcracker 2020 Recap (Blogmas Day 1) (With 57 views!!)

My favorite post: A Day in My Life: Winter Break Edition! (Blogmas Day 9) (I really liked the pictures on this one, and it was super fun to make!)

The easiest post: Probably Christmas Aesthetics, since it only took me an hour to make and I basically just downloaded my Pinterest board I had already made a month ago, and the post turned out pretty good for not having to spend a lot of time on it!

The hardest post: Maybe Christmas Playlist Swap Ft. Mary Elizabeth! (Blogmas Day 2), since I made it the day before finals so I was a little stressed out, and it took a long time to listen to all the songs. I really enjoyed the collab though, and the end result was super rewarding after all that hard work!

My favorite featured image: I experimented with a new app to make images for Blogmas, and I liked how it turned out! Maybe Day 1 or 2, because I love the picture on my Nutcracker Recap and I liked the idea on 2!

And that’s it for Blogmas 2020! I’m so glad I attempted it this year, and I had so much fun! I hope that everyone has an AMAZING Christmas!! See y’all in 2021 (!!!!)
