Everyday Makeup Routine!

Hey daydreamers! I can’t believe I only have three weeks left of school, plus finals. Summer’s actually on the way!

I was thinking of what to post this week, and I remember a while ago I did an everyday makeup tutorial on here. I thought it would be fun to update that with the makeup I actually wear everyday now! I love putting on makeup and usually wear a little bit every day, unless I’m just staying at home, then I might take a break. Also, I am in no way a pro at makeup, I have no idea what I’m doing. Let’s get right into the post!

First I’ll start with the bareMinerals foundation. Sometimes I skip this step, but I’ll put it on if I’m feeling it. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Next I use this concealer I borrowed from my mom.

I also use Burt’s Bee’s lip balm which is the best quality lip balm I’ve ever used! I usually add a touch of lip gloss, but I forgot to do that.

Sometimes I’ll go in with some eyeshadow from the Maddie x Morphe Imagination Palatte! I use the Butterfly Fantasy shade as a base, then go in with a mix of M3 and Latte in the crease. And I finish it off with the shade Angel for a bit of shimmer.

After that, I curl my eyelashes.

Then I do mascara – I use the Nuetrogena Healthy Lengths one.

Finally, I use this brow filler from Beauty Counter to fill in my eyebrows.

And that’s it! Short and sweet, and really easy to put on!

This post was so fun ot mkae! Let me know your makeup routine in the comments below. Have a great week!

THIS WEEKโ€™S SHOUTOUT GOes TO Leisl Robbins! Thanks for commenting!

Do you use any of these products? What does your kmakeup routine look like?

What I Got For Christmas 2020!

Hey daydreamers! I know I said that I’d see y’all in 2021, and I was originally planning on taking a break after Blogmas. But I really like to read these types of posts, so I thought it would be fun to show what I got for Christmas! We still have another Christmas to go to at my dad’s side of the family, but here’s what I got so far.

Also, I know that everyone says this, but it’s true: Christmas is not about the gifts, it’s about the best Gift of all – the birth of our Savior! I’m not trying to brag about what I got in any way or try to make anyone feel bad. Like I said earlier, I personally enjoy reading these posts.

We opened presents on the morning of Christmas Eve (Santa came early ๐Ÿ˜‰), and the next day we drove up to our cousin’s house and ate an amazing Christmas dinner and exchanged more gifts! We spent the night there and then went to our grandma’s house before heading home. I had a great Christmas eve/day, and I hope you guys did too!

First, I got some cute leopard-print Texas earrings from my cousins! These are so cute!

I also got two other pairs of earrings from them.

I was SO EXCITED when I opened this one from my mom, I’ve been wanting the Pura Vida wave ring forever and I’m obsessed! It goes with everything and is super cute and summer-y!

Also from Pura Vida, my mom got me this pretty white bracelet and the Type 1 Diabetes Awareness bracelet.

This one is maybe my favorite present! I was SO excited when I opened this, I was not expecting to get this haha and I’m so happy to finally have a Kendra Scott necklace! It’s gold with a pretty rose quartz jewel, and I’m wearing it right now as I type this! Thanks mom!

This TurnBoard is from my grandma, and it’s already helping my pirouettes! It’s really fun to use, and although it took a little bit to get the hang of it, I think it’ll help my technique a lot!

Of course, since it’s Christmas 2020, I got some cute Old Navy masks in my stocking ๐Ÿ˜‰

Eee, I’m so excited about this one! I’m a huge fan of Maddie Ziegler, and I’ve wanted this palette ever since she came out with her makeup collab with Morphe. The shades are stunning, and I’ve had a ton of fun experimenting with different looks! My favorite shade is Butterfly Fantasy, since it goes with anyting, but Angel is pretty because it changes hues with the light. Overall, this palette is super high quality!

My mom got me my first foundation from BareMinerals.

I also got some more makeup from my mom, some brow tint and Elf concealer!

I also got some Burt’s Bees lip balm and body lotion in my stocking, which is perfect for my because my hands and lips are super chapped and Burt’s Bees is super high-quality.

I got a face mask in my stocking, which I’m so excited to use because I love spa stuff like this!

I forgot I asked for this, so I was super surprised when I opened these Converse haha! I’m so excited about these, I immediately put them on and walked around in them almost the whole day XD They got a little bit dirty since I wore them at my cousin’s house.

From my cousins, I got this book called Charlie Thorne and the Last Equation by Stuart Gibbs. I always need a book to read before I go to bed, and I already started this one and it’s super exciting, full of twists and turns and conspiracies! I would definitely reccomend this one.

I got this super fun long-sleeve Christmas shirt from my mom! I wore it on Christmas day, and my cousin also wore one that said Fa-La-La-Llama on it, so we were matching lol!

I got a rock salt lamp from my ballet company big sisters, and it’s SO pretty and relaxing!

For my early Christmas present, my grandma took me shopping at this amazing dance store in the city, and I got a bunch of dancewear from there! First I got this super comfy basic Bloch leo in black.

I also chose this fancy Gaynor Minden one with a zipper down the front and a high neck, and it’s really cute!

I found this teal lace skirt on sale, and I always get a lot of compliments on it. It’s super fun to wear!

This one is one of my favorites that I got. It’s a simple camisole leo with a V-neck and really pretty back straps!

This one is another favorite – I finally have a patterned leotard! It has this gorgeous black-and-white design on the front, and the back is mesh with velvet lining all along the straps.

I got this fun gift box from my aunt that has all this fancy spa stuff! It came with fuzzy socks, a really good scented candle, a relaxing lavender eye cover, some lip balm, and Himalayan bath salt. I can’t wait to use all of this!

Finally, I got the Loopy rose gold marble phone case! It’s so pretty, and I like how the loop makes it really easy to hold while taking blog pics!

I hope that you guys all had an amazing Christmas! I would love to hear all about in the comments below! Once again, I’m super grateful for everything that I got! I might update this post after Christmas on my dad’s side, but if not, I’ll see ya next year! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Get Ready With Me For Cheer!

Hey daydreamers! I’m super excited for this week’s post! I’m going to be showing you guys how I get ready for cheer, including how I do my hair and makeup for a game. I just had my first basketball game the other day, and I took some pictures while I got ready to show y’all basically how I do it!

Basketball is a lot different from football – it’s definitely a lot more chill, the cheerleaders don’t do as much and halftime isn’t a very big deal. There’s also a lot less people. Since this was my first time, I got ready as if I was going to a football game (minus curling my hair), but I think next time I’ll definitely do less makeup. Anyway, let’s get right into it!

For this cheer hairstyle, you’re obviously going to need a hairbrush, multiple hair ties, lots of hairspray, and your bow.

Start off by just brushing your hair to get it smooth and easy to style. Next – this is the most important part, so you might need to try this a few times! – draw a line with your fingers from your temples to your hair, like I did in the picture above. Keep going with the line until you’ve separated the top half of your hair from the bottom.

Next, I like to take a scrunchie to hold my hair in place temporarily as I brush out all of the bumps, smooth it over with water, and brush it again. Then I’ll take out the scrunchie and try to get it higher. I keep repeating this a bunch of times until I’m happy with the height and smoothness of the ponytail.

Once I’m happy with it, I secure it with a hair tie.

(Haha my expression in this picture XD) This is one of the most important steps – I make sure to spray it with a ton of hairspray! This holds it up while stunting, jumping, tumbling, cheering, and dancing throughout a long football game and smooths away any flyaways. My trick is to smooth it with water first, and then spray it with hairspray so it stays smooth the whole time!

Time for my personal favorite part – adding the bow! Our bow is so pretty, it’s one of our school colors with sort of an ombre rhinestone effect. I definitely miss the pink breast cancer awareness bows we did in October, but this one is super cute too!

It’s probably best to wait until the last second to put in your bow so it doesn’t get messed up, but I was really impatient and went ahead and put it in after I finished my hairstyle lol. Make sure to add another hair tie on top, or it’s going to fall out! Also double-check that you didn’t put it in on top of the other ponytails, or else it’ll be really floppy and we don’t want that. ๐Ÿ˜› If you need to, add some bobby pins to secure it in place.

Now that hair is finished, we can move on to makeup! This is really personal preference – there’s not really a right or wrong way to do it, unless your team has to wear the same color lipstick or eyeshadow or something. Some girls on my team like to wear a ton of makeup, and some wear an everyday amount or none at all. I personally enjoy doing mine and I think it helps define your eyes a lot (especially wearing a mask this year!), so I like to do a little bit more than normal but not as much as I would for stage makeup.

First, I’m going to fill in my brows using this taupe shade from an Ulta kit thingy I got last year. If you have thick eyebrows you can skip this step and just brush them out, but mine are really, really thin so I like to fill mine in just a little bit.

Next, my favorite part of makeup, eyeshadow! I like to do a warm brown look using this Ulta palate. I used the Candlelight, Amour, Midnight, and Lavish shade in that order. My friends insist on using their fingers to apply eyeshadow, but I’m obsessed with this Morphe brush, so find what works best for you!

Argh, sorry, this picture is not focused! After eyeshadow I go in with a few coats of mascara. I go a little bit darker than I would everyday using the Nuetrogena Healthy Lengths Volume mascara. I’ll also go in with a light coat of this random old concealer I found in my mom’s drawer (she said I could keep it since it’s almost empty haha) under my eyes. It doesn’t make a huge difference but helps even out my dark circles a little bit.

Finally, I’ll use some of this amazing Rose Salve on my lips and cheeks!

Now that makeup and hair is done, all that’s left to do is change into my uniform!

Before I leave, I’ll usually have a snack and get all of my stuff together (poms, cheer bag, water bottle, diabetes supplies, change of clothes). Ideally, I would stretch for about ten minutes to get warmed up and I’d also go over every cheer and chant so they’re fresh in my mind, but that doesn’t always happen. ๐Ÿ˜›

Thank you so much for reading! I loved making this post, and I hope it helps you with cheer hair and makeup or it was entertaining to read. You guys seem to like these types of GRWM posts, so I hope you enjoyed this one! Should I do more cheer posts, like a what’s in my cheer bag or things I wish I knew before I started cheer?

Should I do more posts about cheer? Have you ever done cheer before? Do you like makeup or not? Opinion on hairspray (the literal glue that holds your life together or something to be avoided at all costs)? Would you rather be a blackspot, base, or flyer?

Natural Everyday Makeup Tutorial! (super easy)

Hey daydreamers! First off, thank you so much to Natalie for giving me the idea for this post in the survey I did last month! (Wow, that feels like forever ago, remember when there wasn’t a global pandemic? XD) I really and truly appreciate it when you guys let me know what you want to see from me – I’m always looking for post ideas and inspiration, and if you have any ideas for me let me know in the comments and I’d be super happy to make a post about it! Thank you to everyone who took the survey, and I’m going to try to do the posts you guys asked for within the next few weeks, so stay tuned! ๐Ÿ˜‰

As you can see from the title, today I’m going to do a super easy, super natural, and super fun makeup tutorial for everyday! Normally, I only wear some eyebrow makeup, sometimes a little mascara, and maybe some clear lip gloss if I feel like it, and during quarantine I haven’t been wearing any, haha. I decided to make a tutorial for when you’re feeling like putting on some extra makeup, but you don’t want to spend a ton of time and energy on it and you don’t want people to tell you’re wearing any!

It’s not super necessary to wear makeup in the current situation since we’re all stuck at home, but I think it’s an awesome opportunity to wear makeup for yourself and to feel good and not to impress other people, and you can brush up on some skills! SEE WHAT I DID THERE It’s also a good time to take care of your skin and let your face have a break, so just find what works for you โค โค

Okay, without futher into-ing, (why don’t I ever say introducing or introduction? I just noticed that) let’s get into the tutorial! And also, disclaimer of the dayโ„ข, I’m in no way a professional makeup artist or makeup guru or anything, I have no idea what I’m doing and taught myself how to do everything, so don’t judge. XD Okay, let’s get started for real!

Okay, first step is to pull your hair back so it doesn’t get in the way. I’m using the light pink scrunchie from my Franchesca’s scrunchie review. A normal ponytail is fine, but if you want to get fancy, do a braid! (It literally doesn’t matter)

Next, I’m going to spray my face with this bliss Rose Gold Rescue rose water spray to sort of cleanse it and it’s also super refreshing!

All the stuff I’m using is from this Ulta makeup case unless I say otherwise, in case you were wondering!

Next, you’re going to do your eyebrows. If you don’t need to do them, I’m jealous, haha! If you have super light brows like me, go ahead and put the product on a brow brush and sort of draw on top of your brows to make them darker. If yours are normal, just fill in the sparse spots with a pencil or brush.

Time for bronzer! I’m not super great at bronzer, but use a larger brush to apply it gently to your cheekbones and add a little extra right at the sideburn area (that’s the only way I can explain it haha)

Also, add some blush. You want to go super light and natural to give yourself a rosy glow that’s not too obvious.

Next, my favorite part: eyeshadow! I’m using a palate from Ulta (I think? Not sure). Start with your nuetral color (I’m using the Candelight shade) and apply it all over your eyelid, crease, and brow bone. This is kind of a “base” for the rest of the eye makeup.

Next, apply at slightly darker shade over your eyelid only. I’m using the Amour shade for this one.

GLITTER!!! *ahem* I love adding a layer of glittery eyshadow, because it makes me feel so confident and put-together! I’m using the Glitz shade. Apply as much glitter as you want wherever you feel like it on your eyelid. ๐Ÿ˜‰

You’re almost done! Now add a little bit of mascara. I’m using Maybelline GreatLash mascara, and I love it! It’s so much better than the one I was using before.

Finally, add some clear lip gloss, and you’re done!

And you’re done!

And if you liked this post, make sure to check out my stage makeup tutorial! Thanks for reading, and don’t forget to check back next weekend for another new post. Love you guys!

How’s your quarantine going? What have you been up to lately (I’ve been super bored)? Do you wear makeup? What does your daily makeup routine look like? Isn’t sparkly eyeshadow the best? Are you wearing makeup during quarantine, just a little, or not at all?

How I Do My Makeup for Performances // Stage Makeup Tutorial!

Hey daydreamers! You guys really seemed to like my morning routine post, so I decided to do something sort of similar to that today.

In this post, I’m basically going to be showing you how I do my makeup for shows and ballet performances, and this is pretty much how I did my makeup for Nutcracker a few weeks ago! (I miss Nutcracker so much!!! *cries*)

First off, I am in no way a professional makeup artist or anything, I have no idea what I’m doing and this is basically what I’ve figured out by experimenting and trying out products and stuff. And also, this isn’t sponsored or anything (haha as if, I wish this was sponsored lol)!

Without futher ado…my attempt at a makeup tutorial! ๐Ÿ˜‚

This is just my face pre-makeup. ๐Ÿ˜‚ Onstage, it’s really important to wear heavy makeup because the huge stage lights completely wash your face out, and you have to make sure the back row of the audience can see your facial expressions. You mainly just have to focus on brows, eyes, lips, and cheekbones.

Lol, I should know…once I was in a play and I didn’t wear ANY makeup at all, and it looks like I don’t even have a face in this picture! *Cringes*

The first thing I do is just pull my hair back into a simple ponytail, just to keep my hair out of my face.

First, I’m using a beauty blender and a Neutrogena product (I think it’s supposed to be cover up, but I sort of use it like foundation.)

Next, I apply the cover up on my chin, forehead, cheeks, and under my eyes. Then I blend everything in with the beauty blender by sort of bouncing the blender on my face and smoothing everything out with my fingers.

Next, I put some highlighter around the corners of my eyes to brighten them up a little.

Sorry this is out of focus! I’m using the light to medium matte bronzer, matte rose blush, and gold highlighter from this palate from the Nuetrogena makeup case I got for Christmas.

My face in this picture, lol! First, I take the matte bronzer and lightly dust it over my cheekbones, and blend with a beauty blender.

Next, I apply some blush to my cheekbones – a little more than I would usually do, because it needs to show up onstage. Once again, blend!

Lastly, I dust a touch of shimmery gold highlighter slightly above my cheekbones. And I – you guessed it! – blend it all in.

Onto brows! I’m using the light brown brow cream from the same case thing.

Using a brow brush, I brush on a thick line at the top of my brows, which looks really funny and strange at first, lol!

After that, I blend it together by rubbing my fingers over my brows, and then I fill in any sparse spots with the brow brush.

Next, I apply some glowy nude eyeshadow base with an eyeshadow brush. I really like using this because it smooths everything out and gives your eyes a bit of a natural glow!

Moving onto my favorite part – eyeshadow! I’m using the Candelight, Amour, Midnight, and Sparks colors from this palate, and a crease brush from a brush kit I got.

First, I dust the Candelight shade all over my lids. Then I go over that with the Amour color. After that, I brush the darker Midnight color from the bottom of my eyelids to my crease, and then go over everything with the light shimmery Sparks color.

Ta-da! Eyeshadow done, now onto lashes and eyeliner.

Doing my own eyeliner is really hard for me, so I usually have my mom do it…but I tried, and kinda failed, haha! For shows I always, always, always do winged eyeliner! I attempted a wing here and it’s kinda uneven…oh well?

Second-to-last, I apply mascara! I use this really big, thick one for onstage. I don’t know why, but mascara is really fun to put on for some reason. ๐Ÿ˜‚

Normally, when I’m in a group dance, we all have one lipstick color that we all share so we look the same, so I usually put it on there. It kinda depends on the role: sometimes it’s pink, and sometimes it’s red.

Finally, fill in your lip liner with a bright red or dark pink shade, and you’re done!

I’m pretty happy about how this turned out! The eyeliner is only a little bit messy, and the eyeshadow turned out pretty well! I probably would’ve done everything a bit more exaggerated for a real show, but I didn’t want to put a TON on because it’s hard to take it off, especially thick eyeliner. ๐Ÿ˜‚

And that’s it for this post! I hope you guys found this interesting, and maybe you can use it to try out some stage makeup of your own. Let me know what you think in the comments!

Have you ever done stage makeup? Do you like makeup everyday, or only for shows and special occasions? Pink or red lipstick? Are you bad at eyeliner like me?

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!

What I Got For Christmas 2019!

Hey daydreamers! Merry (late) Christmas! I’m sorry my posts have been kinda all-over-the place this month so far. I’ve been crazy busy with filming my stop motion, traveling, dancing in the Nutcracker, and the Emmie Awards that I haven’t really had time to post something that wasn’t Emmies-related or a reblog!

Now that Christmas is officially over (waaaaah!!!!), I finally have some time to sit down and write a post! Today, I thought I’d share with you some of the things I got for Christmas. I’m really grateful for everything I got (and I’m not trying to brag or anything, I just thought you guys might like this post since you enjoyed my other hauls!)

Enough rambling/disclaimers/excuses – let’s jump right in!

First I got this cute little cookie kit from my Aunt! I love the llama on the front (and y’all know how much I LOVE LLAMAS). The cookie even has a little slit in it so you can put it on your mug. How cute is that? I haven’t tried it out yet, but it looks fun!

I also got 12 Before 13 by Lisa Greenwald, which is the sequel to my favorite fiction book ever, 11 Before 12 (besides the Hunger Games lol), from my aunt! I’ve already read it (haha) and it was soooo good. This series is my favorite!

Then I also got the third book in the series, 13 and Counting! I’m in the middle of this one right now and it’s really good so far! Kaylan and Ari are amazing characters, and I still can’t decide who I like better.

Now I have the whole series, yay!

I also got the third book in Maddie Ziegler’s series, The Competition! I’m obsessed with these books and I love Maddie, so I’m really excited to read this.

Lastly, I got the young readers edition of Misty Copeland’s autobiography, Life In Motion. I’ve read the non-adapted version and really loved it! The cover is so pretty on this one…Misty Copeland is my favorite ballerina. And that’s it for the books!

Why does my wall literally look gReEN in this picture?? The creepy thing is, this used to be the EXACT COLOR of my walls :-O

Next category: dancewear! My grandma took me shopping at the dance store that I got my pointe shoes at, and I got some leos there. The first one is this royal blue spagetti-strap, which is my level color so I can wear it in class! It fits perfectly and feels really comfortable.

I also got this cute black one! Since it’s not my level color, I can only wear it on Saturdays/Sundays and during rehearsals. I really love the thick black straps and the cut on this one! It’s super comfy too.

And last but not least of the dance stuff, I got new ballet shoes! I’ve had leather ballet shoes for quite some time now, and they were getting really dirty and old and gross. The leather was really annoying me, and all of my friends had switched to canvas shoes a million years ago! So I decided it was definitely time to switch to canvas and I’m soooo glad I did – they’re so much easier to point your foot in, and they’re really comfy and make turning a lot easier.

Next, some clothes I got from my mom! I’m OBSESSED with my new Simply Southern tie-dye hoodie. It’s SO COMFY ahhhhh! Every time I put this sweatshirt on, I literally start getting SLEEPY because it’s so comfy!

I also got this pink llama long-sleeve t-shirt from Simply Southern! Isn’t the llama so cute?

Then I also got this volleyball one, also from Simply Southern, but short-sleeved.

Moving on to some random stuff! I got another Hydro Flask, but this time a light blue, and it’s 8oz. I like how it’s so much smaller and lighter than my other giant one (it’s like 30oz!)! I love my giant one but it doesn’t fit in any cup holders, which is annoying, and it’s really hard to carry around. This one I can just stick in my backpack and be on the go!

I also got these cute grey Nike sneakers. All of my shoes are either super girly or trendy (like my pink slip-ons, black high-heel boots, and white Adidas sneakers), but these tennis shoes are more athletic. They’re super comfortable!

I also got some fun scrunchies in my stocking! Fun fact: I own 14 scrunchies after this. Which is nothing compared to my friends: one of them has over 60 and my BFF accidentally got 181 in packs from Amazon!

Oh, and I got these body butters from my aunt. The olive and coconut ones definitely smell the best! They feel really smooth on your skin. I haven’t really used them much, but they’re sooooo fun to smell *inhales scent*

Then my little sister got me this 2020 calendar from the Dollar Store! Isn’t it cute? ๐Ÿ˜›

I also got this calligraphy set from my Grandma! I didn’t show the whole kit here, but there’s also a ruler, t-square, and some fountain pens. The only problem is the instructions don’t exactly tell you how to put the cartridges into the fountain pens, so I’m having trouble getting started….๐Ÿ˜‚

My mom also got me this cute pink purse from Franchesca’s, and I’m obsessed with it! I love the chevron pattern, and the color is my favorite, and the material feels really nice.

I got the Amandarachlee Doodle Planner from my mom and I’m so excited!! I got the pink (of course) and it’s so, so cute. I’m really excited to use it!

I got my first pair of Kendra Scott earrings from my aunt!! *squeals* I’m so excited to finally have Kendra Scott! All my friends and our moms are obsessed with it. I got these really cute bronze/gold ones that are in between dangles and studs, and I’m obsessed with them.

And second-to-last, I got…an Apple Watch! This one is Series 3, I believe. It’s silver with a white band from my Grandma! I really like it because I can play music, do workouts, track steps, check email, respond to texts, and see my blood sugar on it!

And finally…I GOT MY FIRST MAKEUP KIT!! I was so excited to open this on Christmas morning! It comes with three tiers of different makeup stuff: the first one has a bunch of different eyeshadows and some eyebrow cream, then the second has bronzer, blush, and highlighter, and the third has lip and brow pencils along with some lipstick and stuff like that.

Lastly, I got some brushes, a beauty blender, eyeshadow palate, and lip gloss. I’m really excited!

Whew! That was long. High-five to you if you read the whole thing! I hope y’all enjoyed taking a look at what I got for Christmas. Once again, I’m not trying to brag or make anybody feel bad, I’m just sharing something with you that I thought you guys would like to see!

See ya on New Year’s Eve for the grand reveal of the Emmie Awards winners!

What did you ask for Christmas?
