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!! 🤗 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 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!

Reacting to Your Assumptions About Me: Part 2!

Hey daydreamers! First off, I want to give a HUGE thank you to everyone who subscribed to the email list and entered the giveaway! It’s so amazing to do this giveaway to kick off the launch of our email list and work with SP Scrunchies! If you haven’t entered yet, make sure to enter the giveaway for a chance to win two scrunchies from The Striped Plaid Co! 💛 I’ll be announcing the winner either next week or the week after so stay tuned for the results and make sure to enter before then!

Second, I’m so happy that you guys liked Part 1 of me reacting to your assumptions, and thank you so much for all of your amazing submissions! I originally planned for this to be a single post, but you guys ended up giving me a ton more assumptions than I had planned (thank you!) so I decided to make a part 2 so I could react to all of them! This time I used images from Pinterest to go along with the post, and let’s get into the assumptions!

Changes to the Blog! + SURVEY!

Hey daydreamers! So you might have noticed that lately I’ve been really inconsistent and disorganized with this blog. My posts haven’t been going up on Saturdays like they’re supposed to, and everything just feels slightly off.

So I thought some changes definitely needed to happen around here! Don’t worry – nothing too drastic is happening. I’m not quitting blogging or anything. I just thought a few changes might need to be made to get things working smoothly around here!

design

Don’t worry, the ballerina theme is going anywhere (I paid like $20 for those graphics, sooo….😂)! I’m thinking about switching my theme over so it feels new and fresh, and also switching up the fonts. The ballerina featured image is getting kind of old, too, so I thought of a cool Polaroid idea to accent the ballerinas! What do you guys think? Is there anything about the design you think I should change?

schedule

Lately, I’ve been having trouble getting posts up by Saturdays, because Saturday afternoon I’m like “shoot, I need to make a blog post” and then I start one but I run out of time and energy to finish it. If I don’t finish by Sunday, then it usually never goes up…

So I’m thinking of doing more of a scheduled approach that spreads the workload throughout the week:

  • Monday: Finalize what the post will be
  • Tuesday: Make a list of stuff that needs to get done in order to make the post
  • Wednesday: Write/photograph most of the post
  • Friday: Finish post and schedule
  • Saturday: Before it goes up, add finishing touches and images!

Hopefully this will keep me on track a little better!

community

I don’t know why, but lately I’ve been slacking on reading and replying to emails and comments. I’m so sorry if your email has been waiting in my inbox and I haven’t replied yet! I’m going to try to be a lot better about replying to comments and emails right away.

Also, I’m going to start leaving a comment on every post I read, because I know how happy I get when someone leaves a comment on my blog and I want to spread that to other people! 😄 I haven’t been reading a ton of posts lately and I feel like I’ve been missing out on all of y’alls incredible content in the blogging community, and I’m so sorry about that!

content

I’m going to start posting more specific content related to the categories on my blog. Right now, my categories are beauty, blogging, books, dance, fashion, journaling and art, lifestyle, music, travel, uncategorized, and writing.

I’m thinking about starting a new series about how young people can start blogs called Blogging Elementary! I started out when I was just nine, and blogging has helped me in so many ways. Most bloggers right now are teenagers (even at twelve I’m pretty young for a lifestyle blogger!), but I think we could encourage young bloggers to start creating and we can expand the blogging community, especially with doll blogging! What do you guys think?

I’m thinking about starting some other series, too – what do you guys think?

survey

Finally…I decided to make a survey to see what YOU guys think! It would mean absolutely a TON to me if you took the time to fill out the survey – it only takes a few minutes. 😀 And make sure to share this post so more people can take the survey and DD can be better than ever!

Take the survey here!

see ya next week!

Hey daydreamers! Today I have a fun video for you guys. I had a ton of fun making my Winter Break Morning Routine post, so the other night I decided to vlog my nighttime routine!

Thanks for watching! ❤️ BLOG: https://diaryofadaydreamer.home.blog ❤️ Intro: Taylor Layman ❤️ Endcard: EditingByMatthieu ❤️ Music: Audio library

it’s here. — Emmie Awards 2019 NOMINATING! | CLOSED

NOMINATIONS ARE NOW CLOSED. THANK YOU!

Hey daydreamers! It’s that time of year – the snow is falling (well, everywhere except Texas, where it’s 62 degrees as I write this), Christmas lights twinkle from the branches of the tree, and stockings are hung on the mantel as children daydream of Santa’s gifts on Christmas eve…

Sorry, I went into Christmas carol mode there. 😂 What I’m trying to say is, it’s December, and that means…the Emmie Awards are BACK, and better than ever!

If you’re new to any of my blogs, you probably don’t know what the Emmie Awards are. (Get it? Emmie? Emmy? Yes I’m a genius I know) Ever since 2017, on American Girl World I’ve hosted the annual Emmie Awards, which are awards given to the best bloggers of the year and YOU get to vote for and nominate them.

Here’s how it works: Basically, there’s 10 different categories that a blogger can win. (Like Best Photos, Best Collab, Blog of the Year, etc.) In the comments, you’ll nominate your favorite bloggers for each category!

Then, nominations will close on the 14th, and on the 15th of December I’ll post a survey where you can vote for the winners of each award! When voting closes on Christmas Day, the winners will be notified by email on the 26th and they’ll have the chance to write an acceptance speech for their award.

Finally, the winners will be announced on both American Girl World and Diary of a Daydreamer. Then we’ll have a giant blog party in the comments to celebrate the winners! Got it?

You’ll learn just HOW to nominate your favorite blogs for the Emmie Awards at the end of this post! First, let’s check out this year’s categories!

This award is for the collab series or post between two or more bloggers that you really enjoyed, connected with, or felt inspired by. This award goes to the most creative and stunning collab of the year – so nominate your favorite in the comments!

Who do you think of when someone says “lifestyle blogger”? Nominate them for this award! A lifestyle blog is a blog that covers topics like the blogger’s interests, events in their life, fashion, photography, and more.

Do you have an old favorite doll blogger or a brand new one you just discovered? Any blog featuring dolls, toys, or stuffed animals can be nominated for this category! This award is for a doll/toy blog featuring exciting and creative photostories, great quality photos, and well thought-out characters.

You can nominate any blog for this category that focuses on books, characters, reviews, and most importantly, is written by a bookworm! Blogs like these make you want to read all the books they review to investigate them for yourself, include amazing photos, and show incredible effort in their content.

Note: if the blog you nominate was designed by someone other than the blogger, the credit goes to the designer! A stunning blog design can make or break your blog’s success. And some blogs accomplish that perfectly, creating an aesthetic and beautiful environment on their blog that makes you feel like you could scroll through their feed forever!

Is there a certain video, vlog, or stopmotion that you can’t stop rewatching? This award goes to a blog who posts amazing video content on their site OR has a YouTube channel associated with their blog. You can nominate a specific video, or just a blog in general who always posts quality movies!

Some blogs have gorgeous, aesthetic photos with perfect lighting and setups. Behind those amazing photos are hours of shooting and editing, so reward your favorite photographer for all their hard work by nominating them for this award!

This award is for a tutorial post that’s super easy to follow along to. A tutorial can be a craft tutorial, recipe, follow-along routine, or anything that’s meant for you to try out and follow along to! Videos count for this category, too!

This award is for the best new blog that started in 2019 OR has been public for year or less! So a blog started in December 2018 counts and so does a blog started in March 2019, but a blog that started in May 2018 doesn’t count. Got it?

And lastly, the most prestigious and highly coveted award in the entire Emmies… the honorable title of Blog of the Year! This award is given to the blog that really shined this year. Their posts were on point and they connected with their audience, and showed incredible creativity. This award is a huge honor, so nominate your most favorite blog of all time for this one!

HOW TO NOMINATE

All you have to do is comment down below! Some rules:

  • You cannot nominate yourself for an award
  • You can technically nominate me for an award, but that would be kinda strange lol
  • You are allowed to campaign on your blog to get nominations (like making a post asking people to nominate you for whatever category)

50 Followers Q&A – My Answers to YOUR Questions!

Hey daydreamers! I’m so happy that all of you guys asked a ton of questions that I’m super excited to answer. I want to thank every single one of you who takes the time to read my posts, follow my blog, and write out a comment – I (literally) couldn’t do this without y’all! I wish I could just reach through the computer screen and give a big hug to every single one of you guys. 🤗❤️🤗

And since I’m a nerd, I listed all of my answers to your questions in alphabetical order of the name of the person to asked them. 😂 Hopefully that will make it a little easier to find your questions!

Okay, enough of the sappy speeches, numerous emojis, and my nerdiness. 😂 Let’s get started!

***I don’t own any of the GIFs in this post, they’re all from Google. Also, I made the images with PhotoFunia.***

What is your favorite thing you’ve learned about blogging?

I think maybe my favorite thing that I’ve learned about blogging is how to create better quality posts. When I was first starting out on my AG Doll Blog, my posts were only a few paragraphs long, my images were grainy and blurry, and I didn’t really have a good idea on what people actually liked to read; I was just taking random pictures of my dolls and hoping someone would want to read them! I’m still trying to improve the quality of my posts today, but I feel like I’ve learned a lot about how to write something people want to read.

What is the longest thing you’ve ever written?

I wrote a novel last year called the Huntress that was 30,000 words long, but I have a sorta-abandoned WIP that’s currently at 35,000! I actually haven’t written a book or story or anything in a really long time. I’d love to get back to that, but I’ve been so busy lately!

Image result for busy gif"

Which post did you enjoy making the most?

Ooh, this is a really good question – and a really hard one! Maybe one of my first posts, Colorado Travel Diary | Day 1: Skies, Stairs, Spiders, and Sunsets because it totally took me back to that amazing vacation and I just felt so happy and relaxed writing it.

Do you have any book recommendations?

YES. The Hunger Games trilogy. GO GET YOUR HANDS ON IT IMMEDIATELY AND READ THE AMAZINGNESS THAT IS THE HUNGER GAMES!!!

KATNISS!

I mentioned a lot of books that I love too in this post, plus I recommend anything by Raina Telgemier, the Dog’s Purpose series, and Wonder by R.J. Palicio!

What TV shows do you like?

My little sister and I love rewatching old Disney channel shows – Jessie, Liv & Maddie, and the Suite Life are a few of our faves. We watch the new ones that air now like the new Bunk’d, Coop & Cami Ask The World, and Just Roll With It, but the newer ones just aren’t as good as the old ones from the 2000s to early 2010s!

Favorite singer?

My favorite singer is Taylor Swift, and my favorite bands are OneRepublic, for KING & COUNTRY, and (of course) the Jonas Brothers!! My all-time favorite band is the Jonas Brothers, and I think Taylor is my second favorite musician and then OneRepublic & for KING & COUNTRY are tied for third place.

Jo and Kevin are the BEST

Current favorite songs?

Ooh I have a huge playlist of my favorite songs! I think right now ones I’ve been listening to a lot are Like It’s Christmas by the Jonas Brothers, Somebody to Love by OneRepublic, and Burn the Ships by for KING & COUNTRY is a really great one too.

What genre of movies do you like best?

Actually, I’m not really sure – I kinda watch everything! I love anything Marvel and Star Wars, but other sci-fi movies aren’t really my favorite. I love Disney stuff, action, adventure, contemporary…the only thing I won’t watch is horror movies! I will never in a million years watch a horror movie. I can’t even handle a haunted house! 😂😂😂

Me watching anything slightly scary

Which movie is your favorite?

One again, the Hunger Games movies! I just watched it yesterday actually and it was AMAZING.

1. Do you prefer listening to books on tape or reading them yourself?

I 100000001% prefer reading actual books – eBooks are okay, but I have no idea why I don’t like audiobooks so much. It’s just so hard for me to pay attention unless I’m doing something! Plus I really love snuggling up in my cozy chair with a blanket and a book and reading for hours until I go to bed.

2. If you had two children: a girl and a boy, what would you name them?

Ooh, this is a really fun question! I would name the boy Elijah Samuel, because those names are really cute and have great Bible stories. I also love Skye or Skylar for a girl since it sounds so pretty, and maybe Olivia or Elena for a middle name would be cute.

3. What is your least favorite chore around the house?

Probably wiping the counters or dusting. I’m not super great at chores and I don’t really do them a lot!

me trying to iron

4. If you could meet three people from history, who would they be?

Nick Jonas from 2010 Just kidding, I think I would be really cool to meet Rosa Parks, Abraham Lincoln, and Nick Jonas from 2009 maybe Betsy Ross or Martin Luther King Jr.

5. What is your favorite movie?

The Hunger Games is amazing! I’m excited to watch Catching Fire (the second movie). I also love any Marvel movie.

6. Do you like peanut butter?

Yeah, but I don’t LOVE it. Like my dad and sister will eat it straight from a spoon, but I’d rather have it in a PB&J sandwich or on toast with bananas – yum! Basically I’m saying that I like it but only with something else.

7. Do you have any siblings?

Yes, I have one little sister (she used to have a blog about our dog, Chewy: she doesn’t post any more, but her photos are so cute, so check it out!) who is 9 years old.

One of her photos

do you like puppies or kittens better?

Definitely puppies! They are just so cute and amazing and fluffy and cuddly and playful and loyal and AHH I LOVE THEM.

Who can ignore that wittle face!!

pens or pencils?

Um, I have no idea. Depends on what I’m writing, how good the pen is, and how sharp the pencil is.

have you ever gone rock climbing?

Yes, actually, but only the indoor kind. There’s this huge rock wall gym near us and sometimes we’ll go there with friends and for birthday parties. There’s so many different bouldering stuff and rock walls there, it’s really fun!

pink or purple?

Pink! Blush pink is my favorite color ever.

skydiving or bungee jumping?

Ack! If you mean indoor skydiving versus the bungee jumping with the trampoline and cords, then bungee jumping any day because I hate not being able to breathe and all the air blowing in my face…but if you mean actual skydiving and jumping-off-of-a-cliff-backwards bungee jumping, I’d still choose bungee jumping because at least I wouldn’t be free-falling to the ground and ack!

ack!

highlighters or colored gel pens?

Ooh, I really love colored gel pens but I also use highlighters! Both, I guess?

lemonade or iced tea?

Lemonade all the way, I really love diet lemonade from Chick-Fil-A.

fav. bible verse?

Ooh, mine is:

Psalm 62:7-8 The Message (MSG)

7-8 My help and glory are in God
    —granite-strength and safe-harbor-God—
So trust him absolutely, people;
    lay your lives on the line for him.
    God is a safe place to be.

copied and pasted from Bible Gateway

fav. hobby?

Dancing!! Especially ballet!

if you could rename any animal, which animal and what would you name it?

I would rename the llama “Majestic Creature of Amazing Awesomeness.” Just kidding, I would maybe rename fish Aquatica, since it just sounds so majestic and cool!

1. What does a usual Day in the Life of Emmie™ entail?

Ooh, so it really depends on the day. On any Monday, Wednesday, or Friday, I’ll wake up and eat breakfast while watching a show with my little sister. Then I’ll usually get started on my homework for the day. On Monday and Friday I try to do at least one or two subjects, but on Wednesday I have to do all of them since they’re due the next day. When I’m done with homework, I’ll blog, film, or work on whatever project I’m doing at the moment, and then I’ll eat dinner and go to dance on Wednesday and sometimes Monday. Then on Tuesdays and Thursdays I have school, which lasts from 8:00-ish to 3:00, and then I’ll work on projects and blog stuff or just hang out until I have dance in the evenings. On Saturday, I have ballet at 9:00am that I have to wake up early for, and then I have rehearsal and my sister has soccer that afternoon. On Sunday I don’t have any dance usually, and I go to church and eat lunch with my family and hang out. That was REALLY long but basically that’s the general idea!

2. What are your best productivity tips?

My tip is to make a checklist for the day on what you want to accomplish – whether it’s a mental list or you write it down on paper or in a bullet journal. If I write it down then I usually forget to check things off, but the night before I like to make myself a mental plan for today to follow in the morning!

3. Can you give us an in-depth look at your morning routine?

Once again, my morning routine really depends on what day it is. On a “home day” (Monday, Wednesday, Friday) I’ll usually wake up around 8:00 or 9:00 and watch a show while I eat breakfast. Then I’ll work on my schoolwork after I get dressed and wash my face. On school days, I wake up at 7:00, get dressed, do my hair, wash my face, put on my shoes, eat breakfast, grab my backpack, and go! On Saturday I have early-morning dance so I’ll wake up at 8:00, put on my dance outfit, do my bun, eat a quick breakfast, and wait a little bit for my ride to arrive. Sunday, I get ready and I’ll make myself some peppermint tea to put in a little to-go cup that I bring to church.

4. As you know, having an autoimmune disease can be discouraging. How do you take care of yourself emotionally/mentally and stay positive throughout your battles?

I think I’ve just learned to embrace that this is my “new” (it honestly feels like I’ve hat T1D for my whole life, but it hasn’t even been two years) normal. I know that to keep myself healthy I have to do some certain things (like sticking my fingers with needles and inhale applesauce at 12:00am), and that’s okay, because that’s my new normal.

5. Do you have any thoughts on pursuing your dancing dreams despite an illness and what that’s like?

Sometimes it’s difficult when my blood sugar is going crazy, my monitors are falling off, and my pump gets in the way. But like above, I’ve learned to manage it, and I don’t let it stop me!

7. Did you realize I skipped #6? XD

Nope! How did I not even notice that…

What is your favorite clothing brand?

Ooh, good question! I have no idea. Maybe Target or Children’s Place.

Favorite dancers?

Chloe Lukasiak, Maddie and Mackenzie Ziegler, and Misty Copeland are my favorite dancers ever! I love their books and all of them are so inspirational and amazing, incredible dancers, ahhh.

DC or Marvel?

MARVEL ALL THE WAY.

Pink or Purple?

Pink! Blush pink is my favorite color ever.

Cats or Dogs?

DOGS DOGS DOGS. Dogs are so amazing and loyal, and they’re adorable and playful and cute and cuddly! Mine is currently sleeping on my lap as I type this.

Awwww!

Drawing or Painting?

I think I’m better at drawing and it’s a lot easier to get out a pencil and doodle then, say, get out a canvas and paint a masterpiece. However, I really love the look of paintings (especially watercolor!) and they’re so relaxing, but really time consuming! I might say drawing.

Do you watch Once Upon A Time?

No, I don’t. But I remember in Kindergarten when I was absolutely OBSESSED with Frozen I saw the episode where she like materialized out of a pool of liquid/ice or something? I remember I would try to recreate that by rising up from under a blanket. 😂 I was a strange six-year-old.

Favorite movies/TV shows?

Like I said above, I love old Disney channel shows! I also love Series of Unfortunate Events on Netflix.

Favorite candy?

I love M&Ms! I think my other favorite candy is Musketeers. I loooove marshmallows (haha, flashback to 2017!) and ESPECIALLY ones covered in chocolate, and Three Musketeers have all of that in a candy bar, so YUM!

Favorite movie?

Haha, almost everybody asked this question! For the fourth time, I would say Hunger Games. LOL! Ooh, my favorite Disney movie is probably the Greatest Showman.

What do you do in your free time?

I’m always watching YouTube, checking WordPress, working on a blog post or stop motion, reading a good book, and dancing! I also have to be listening to music while doing all of those things for some reason, lol.

Pink or Aqua?

Ooh, aqua is so pretty…but blush pink is my favorite color…so pink? But I only like very light shades of pink, light coral pink, and tan-ish pink, not any hot pink or dark pink. I’m really picky!

And that’s it for this post! Thank you to everyone who asked questions for the Q&A – y’all are the best! *hugs* I had so much fun answering your questions and trying something new by adding a hundred GIFs, lol.

Pink or purple? What’s your favorite movie? Your opinion on the Hunger Games? Are you a dancer? Do horror movies freak you out? Do you like old Disney channel shows?

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.

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…
