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!

My Winter Break Morning Routine // GRWM!

Hey daydreamers! It’s so crazy that it’s 2020. GUYS IT’S A NEW DECAAAADE!!!! ๐Ÿ˜›

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. ๐Ÿ˜‚ 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? ๐Ÿ˜‚

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. ๐Ÿ˜‚ 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!

GETTING MY FIRST PAIR OF POINTE SHOES?! | First Ever Vlog

I’ll never forget the day I found out I was getting my first pair of pointe shoes. It had been a long, crazy, horrible day, and I was feeling so stressed and frazzled when I walked into the studio, I couldn’t remember where to put my bag. I was pretty suspicious, though – there was supposed to be a parent meeting that day. And that could only mean one thing!!

My mom and I walked into the studio to find my class huddled in a circle around my teacher. She handed us each a packet that read-

Dear Emmie*,

The image of dancing on pointe as effortless is a mere illusion. Much energy and skill is required to assimilate hundreds of muscles, tendons, ligaments, and bones to rise up and dance on pointe. Many dancers have impatiently waited for their first pair of pointe shoes only to be shocked at how difficult dancing on their toes can be. the results of such misunderstanding can lead to frustration, disappointment, and in some cases, injury.

As you begin your pointe study, please be aware that it is a privilege that is accompanied by significant responsibility.

1. Your attendance to each class is imperative.

2. You will be required to dance in the summer to maintain your sill and strength. If you don’t dance at least 4 weeks in the summer, you will not be able to return to pointe study at the beginning of the next fall term.

3. Don’t work at home in your pointe shoes on your own, as you may develop improper habits. Be patient and endure!

*Not what the letter actually said, obviously, it said my real name lol.

As soon as I saw the packet, I knew – it was real. It was actually happening. I was going to get my pointe shoes! And after 3 weeks of waiting, the day of my first pointe shoe fitting had finally come.

Hey guys! Today I’m doing something a little different – I decided to make a vlog about my first ever pointe shoe fitting! I filmed the entire day, from waking up, heading there, the actual fitting (sort of), and when I got back! I’m so excited about how this video turned out and I really hope you guys will like it!

I really hope you guys enjoyed! I’m so sorry this video is SUPER late, but that’s because this took so long to edit and upload, plus I’ve been busy with dance and school so I haven’t had time to actually type this post up.

Do you have pointe shoes? Opinion on microwave mac-and-cheese? Have you ever danced before? How far can you go on your splits? Who’s your favorite YouTuber?
