Hey daydreamers! How has your week been so far? Welcome back to another episode of the Emmie Show! For a quick refresher, the Emmie show is where I interview different bloggers all about their blogging journey and advice, and also some fun questions about them.
When Gabi Denner from her blog Gabrielle Joy contacted me about a collab, it was perfect since I was just about to ask her to be on the Emmie Show! This interview with her was so fun, and I can’t wait for y’all to read it. Let’s get into it! My questions are in bold font and hers are in regular.
Hey daydreamers! Welcome back to another episode of the Emmie Show/another Bonus Wednesday Post! If you’re new, in this series, I talk with different bloggers all about their blogging journey, advice, and fun questions about them. (If you missed the first episode, you can check it out using the link above!)
In today’s interview, Diamond and I chatted all about blogging, as well as bullet journaling, the MCU, photostory and photography tips, Taylor Swift, and more! Let’s get right into it. My questions will be in bold font, and Diamond’s answers will be in regular.
Hey daydreamers! I’ve been so excited to do a post like this, because I always make a summer playlist the second school is over In this case, my best friend and I made it over FaceTime before school was even out yet. 😛 I also made a little collage from Pinterest like I’ve done in my other playlist posts for the *summer vibes*.
Let’s get into it! These photos are from Pinterest unless I say otherwise.
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!
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.
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!
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.
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!
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.
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.
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!

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.)
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!
Hey daydreamers! I can’t believe that by the time this post is up, I’ll be heading to camp! Before we get started with the post, I wanted to let you know about the awesome collab Mary, Diamond and I are hosting! We wanted to celebrate the fourth of July, or Independence Day, in a big way and Mary came up with an awesome idea. Together, the three of us are hosting a blog tour!
Normally, blog tours are to introduce a new blog (I did one when Diary of a Daydreamer first launched, and it was super fun), but ours is going to be a little bit different! Each post will be about Independence Day, America, and mainly, the state you’re from (or your favorite if you’re not allowed to share)! I’m so excited to learn about all of the different states and share my favorite things about Texas with y’all.
The giveaway is now closed! The winner will be announced on Wednesday.
Hey daydreamers! I don’t normally post today, but I’m going to start doing “Wednesday Bonus Posts” every so often whenever I have something quick to share or to tide you over until the next post!
As you could tell from the title, I’m hosting another giveaway! I’m super excited about this one and I think you guys will love all the items in it! We’ll be getting to the rules, bonus entries, what’s included, and all that fun stuff in just a bit!

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 fromPinterest to go along with the post, and let’s get into the assumptions!
