Clean & Decorate My Room With Me For Christmas!

Hey daydreamers! Ahh, I’m SO EXCITED and happy that it’s finally that time of year to decorate for Christmas! I actually took the pictures for this post the day after Thanksgiving, which is when we always decorate in our family. I don’t go crazy with the decorations in my room, but I like to add a bunch of fun little touches here and there! So without further adieu, (I’ve never quite understood that expression, what is adieu anyway?) let’s get to it!

Before I can decorate, I decided to do a quick tidy up and clean of my room. First I took everything that wasn’t really in the right place or on top of a surface I was going to wipe and dumped it all on my bed.

Next, I went through and wiped down everything with a Clorox wipe and sprayed the mirrors down with Windex. I also dusted earlier that day. Everything was super fresh and clean afterwards! I had also dusted everything earlier.

Once all the surfaces were clean, I put all the clutter that was on my bed back where it goes and threw away any trash.

Next, I lit a candle, put on some Christmas music, and turned on some fairy lights to set the Christmas mood!

First: my mini tree!! My sister and I both have white mini trees that we always decorate with our own special ornaments each year. It’s one of my favorite traditions, and makes my room feel cozy and Christmasy when the lights are on!

First, I fluffed the tree and then began to decorate with the ornaments!

I also added the tree skirt and the star on top.

Eeee, isn’t it so pretty??

Next, I put a Christmasy bow over my old pointe shoes hanging on my door.

After that, I hung up some snowflakes on my bookshelf.

Almost done! I wrote some fun holiday phrases and my favorite Bible verses from the story of Jesus’s birth on my mirror with a red dry erase marker. (If you didn’t already know this, mirrors are just like dry erase boards and you can write and erase on them! Just be careful, because sometimes it might leave marks if you leave it up for a long time.)

For the *finishing touch* (lol), I added a cozy throw blanket onto my bed!

And that’s it! AHH I’M SO EXCITED THAT IT’S CHRISTMAS. I’m actually filming the Nutcracker the day this post will go up, so I’ll get around to y’alls comments as soon as I can. 😉 I hope you enjoyed seeing how I decorated my room, and hopefully it inspired you to be productive or clean and decorate, too! Merry Christmas & have a great day, daydreamers!

Do you decorate your room for Christmas, or do you want to? Have you ever had a mini tree? How do you like to “set the mood” for Christmas?

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?
