Anyways, today’s post is some products, clothes, music, books, skincare, and more that I’ve been loving recently! Sort of like a shopping haul with things I recently got and love. I’ll link to as much as I can so you can check these items out, and this post isn’t sponsored!

Okay, let’s get onto the post! It’s pretty similar to last week, since I found a really good lighting spot for these kinds of posts, so sorry about that. Also, I’m not trying to brag about anything in any way!! I just really love these items and wanted to recommend them to you, and I’m super grateful to have them.

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?
