Fall Outfit Inspiration!

Hey daydreamers! How has everyone’s week been?

I’m so excited for today’s post! I love the kind of weather where you can wear long pants and short sleeves or shorts and long sleeves together. Now that the weather’s finally getting a little cooler, it’s finally time to wear jeans and sweaters! I also got some fun jewelry for my birthday, so I had lots of fun putting these outfits together! Hopefully they give you some inspiration for some fall looks this month. Let’s get right into it!

October Playlist + Aesthetics (ft. free wallpapers!)

Hey daydreamers! I’m alive! Sorry that I disappeared for a few weeks! I have been EXTREMELY busy for the past month or so. Between school, cheer, friends, and ballet (especially with Nutcracker coming up, I’m at the studio 7 days a week), I’ve had almost no time to blog. I might not be able to be as consistent with blogging as I was in the summer, since free time = nonexistent right now. 😛

For today’s post, I thought it would be fun to share my playlist of the month for October – it’s full of cozy vibes and some current favorite songs, so I’m super happy with it! – as well as some fun fall aesthetics and a mini life update to catch up with you guys. Let’s get into it! All of these photos are from Pinterest.

custom faceless portrait review & giveaway ft. graphicsbyjosie! {CLOSED}

Sorry, this giveaway is now closed! The results will be up soon!

Hey daydreamers! How was your week? I feel like mine went by so slowly, but it’s finally the weekend! Yay! Today’s post is a super exciting one, because I’m going to be doing a review of a customized, digital faceless portrait!

First off, thanks so much to Josephine from Graphics by Josie for sponsoring this post! Her shop is focused on graphic design and has amazing products like digital prints, custom portraits, templates, book covers, and more! I received a free portrait in exchange for a review, but all opinions are my own. 😉

Today I’m going to be reviewing one of Josie’s products, and we’ve also put together a super fun giveaway to go along with it! Let’s get right into it.

the review

I chose the custom faceless portrait, because I’ve been wanting to have a profile picture like this! I also love this trend and the ones I’ve seen have looked so cool.

Here’s the photo I sent in to be turned into the portrait.

And this is how it turned out! Ahhh, I could not be happier with it!

Josephine did such a great job! She was super easy to work with, and she had it ready super quickly. She had me choose a background color, outline or not, and any other customizations I wanted. After she had finished it, she was able to change anything I wanted!

Here’s a cool little comparison of the photo and the finished portrait! I’m super excited to use this for profile pictures, and I’m really happy with how it turned out. Thanks so much, Josephine!

How I Did On My Summer ’21 Bucket List! (Summer Recap)

Hey daydreamers! Monday was my first day of school and I can’t believe that summer’s over! It literally went by so fast. It was such a great summer full of amazing memories, and it’s weird to be back at school!

It feels like it’s been so long since I’ve last posted on here! I’ve been super busy with a dance intensive, cheer, and also all the back-to-school events/things that needed to be done, so I haven’t had much time to blog. But I’m back today with a post that I’ve been excited to write: how I did on my summer bucket list! Let’s get right into it.

Pura Vida Review!

Hey daydreamers! Sorry this post is a bit late. I’ve been so busy this week with my studio’s dance intensive, a cheer intensive on top of that, and getting ready for school. Also, it’s hard to believe it’s already August (!!). This summer has literally flown by so fast!

At camp, I lost my one of my favorite sunflower earrings from Pura Vida that I wear all the time! I was so sad – I took them out so I wouldn’t lose them in the lake…and I lost one of them when I took it out. *facepalm* So I ordered a new pair to replace it.

When I did, I saw that Pura Vida was having a huge sale, so I went ahead and grabbed a few more items! I took some pictures as I opened the package, and I thought it would be fun to do a little review. Disclaimer: this post is not sponsored or anything 😉 Let’s get into it!

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! 😉 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!! 🙋‍♀️ 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. 😂

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! 😂 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 😉) 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 to Chloe for sponsoring this giveaway, even if it’s a little late 😛

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! 😉

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?
