Life Lately Vol. 42

Happy Saturday! I hope you all have had a great week! My week felt like it lasted forever - I kept thinking it was Thursday when it was only Tuesday or Wednesday. Today I am sharing some snapshots of what I have been up to lately (and spoiler: it's been a pretty fun month).


My 16th birthday was two weeks ago! I had a party with my friends on Saturday, and the next day (my actual birthday), my family and I went to Dallas for cupcakes, tacos, and shopping (see my birthday vlog here). It was such a fun weekend!

Ten Instagram Accounts You Need To Check Out ASAP

I've been spending wayyyy too much time on Instagram lately. Not necessarily posting, because I've had a hard time finding time to shoot outfits, but I catch myself scrolling through the app whenever I have a few minutes of free time. There have been a ton of influencers that I've been really inspired by recently, so today I'm sharing ten of my favorite Instagrammers that you need to follow ASAP!

Also... I feel like a little self promo is appropriate here... my Instagram is @blissfullybrooke if you want to go follow along (which you totally should)!

@daniellecarolan // I've watched Danielle's YouTube videos for years, but she has been absolutely killing the Instagram game recently. Her outfits are so cute, her color scheme is perfect, and she just radiates positivity!

Currently Vol. 13

This week has kicked my butt. Between all the tests and quizzes I didn't do so hot on, and the late-night soccer games that kept me up until midnight, I am absolutely exhausted. On a happier note, I am so glad that it's the weekend: I can finally have some much-needed relaxation, and I'm having a belated birthday dinner with my dad tonight! Keep reading to see what I've been loving lately!

from my birthday this past weekend!!
Eating... cake!! I have lots of leftover cake from my birthday, so I've been eating a slice every night for dessert. Blue Bell also introduced a new ice cream flavor, Happy Tracks, so I've been eating that for an after school snack. As you can see, I've been trying to eat really clean and healthy lately :)

Steal Her Style: To All The Boys I've Loved Before

I finally got around to watching To All The Boys I've Loved Before, and y'all... it is such a cute movie. Between the romance, the characters, and the fact that every scene in the movie looked like it came straight off of Instagram, I fell in love with the movie. The main character, Lara Jean, wore so many cute outfits throughout the movie, so I thought I would share a few of my favorites with you! For each outfit, I've included a picture of her wearing it, then some similar clothing items that you can get to recreate the look. Happy shopping!

You'll see that Lara Jean wears a lot of sweater + skirt combos, and I love this look! The colors of her top are so cute, especially with a simple skirt and some black sunglassses.



12 Things Vol. 4

Happy Friday!! This week was a pretty good one; it was short due to Labor Day and I've started to get into a consistent school routine, which is nice. Today I'm sharing some random thoughts that have been on my mind lately - enjoy!


1. My birthday is this weekend!! I'm so excited to celebrate with my friends + eat a lot of good food.

2. It's been raining here for the past week and I love it - so cozy!

August 2018 Instagram Roundup

Labor Day was yesterday, which means summer is officially over... it went by incredibly fast and that makes me so sad, but here we are, with another Instagram roundup post. These are some of my favorite posts to do, so I hope you enjoy!

You can't go to Chicago without visiting The Bean... it was my second time going and it's such a cool sculpture.

Life Lately Vol. 41

I cannot tell you how glad I am that I have a much needed three day weekend on the horizon... school has not been that bad but I've been swamped with homework and I could really use some relaxation! I have some fun things planned for Labor Day weekend, and my birthday is the weekend after this one, so I have a feeling September is going to be a pretty great month!

Although I've been busy, these past two weeks have been pretty good and overall I've been happy. I actually love my classes, I'm glad to be practicing soccer again, and I've enjoyed getting to see my friends. I've been a little stressed and busy (which is why I didn't get a blog post up this week) but happy. And I think that's how it should be :)

As I mentioned earlier, the first day of school was a couple weeks ago. In some ways, it feels like the school year is flying by already, but in other ways it feels like it's gone by incredibly slowly. I'll let you know how I feel when we reach Thanksgiving break :)

I've been trying to be better about managing my time this school year and I feel like I've been pretty diligent when it comes to staying on top of my homework and taking good notes. I honestly never thought I would say this, but my favorite class so far is World History. It's definitely the hardest class I'm taking this year but my teacher makes it really interesting. I also love AP Art History (the class pictured above). I never thought my two favorite classes would be history... but never say never!!



My sister's seventh birthday was last weekend. To celebrate, we went to the American Girl store for lunch and I made a modified version of this cookie cake for her. I think it's safe to say everyone loved it... but that's no surprise as Sally's recipes never fail :)

The first soccer game of the season is next week and I cannot wait. I've missed playing soccer and I am so excited to finally play (also, I can finally start refereeing again and I really could use the extra money haha!). The worst part about summer is that there's no soccer!

Have a great weekend!
