What I Wish I Knew Before Going on my Carnival Cruise

Hey guys! I just want to start off this post by saying I’ve debated whether or not to post this because most people are cooped up at home right now. This past month has been crazy, to say the least. I hope y’all’s Easters were full of sunshine, and y’all are staying healthy and safe. If anything, I hope this post can be encouraging, and help you plan a trip for when the pandemic finally calms down.

Relaxing Detox Bath: Self Care During Quarantine

Hello beautiful ladies – and gents! This past month has been insane, and I know a lot of y’all can relate. It feels like every single aspect of my life has been turned upside down. From having to do school from home, to not being able to hangout with my friends, the change has been stressful and emotional, as I know it has been for y’all as well.

You’re amazing 🙂

10 Diy Christmas Decorations That Everyone Needs in Their Home

Diy Christmas Decorations

Oh, Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells!!! In case you haven’t noticed, it is already December 11th, or in other places of the world, December 12th, which for me is really big. I live my year in expectation of the fun, bright, and fantastic Christmas Season.

When my family decorates for Christmas, we all get together, drink eggnog, and listen to Christmas carols while we hang up our favorite homemade ornaments and laugh to (or above) our heart’s desire. There is honestly nothing more beautiful than that.

10 Diy Gifts for Teen Girls That They Will Actually Like (By a Teen Girl)

I love it when someone makes a gift for me instead of just buying it at the store, because it shows how much that person really cares, but in all honestly a lot of people don’t do it anymore, except maybe a few close friends. The reason why? Because they simply don’t know what to make me. They remember back in their teen years how they wanted the newest this and the newest that and then figure that I must want it too, right?

Diy gifts

Maybe it’s my inner romantic, or the fact that I am a true nefelibata, but in all honesty, I LOVE it when people make gifts for me, and I ESPECIALLY love it if its something I will actually use, like the movie night box, or the headbands, or the coffee cozy…okay well pretty much EVERYTHING on this post I would love to receive for Christmas this year. And the best part is that they are all (mostly) simple and (mostly) cheap, so you can be thrifty and thoughtful at the same time.
