50 Christmas Gift Ideas For Everyone On Your List

Welcome to the first Christmas gift guide of the season! I'm starting off the holiday season with the ULTIMATE gift guide... 50 gift ideas that are perfect for everyone. I'll also be explaining these gift ideas more in depth in a YouTube video, which will be up soon. I'll be doing other gift guides that are more niche throughout the holiday season, as well, so stay tuned for those!

1. Boots
Winter boots are always a great idea! Doc Martins are so popular right now. I also love the Jeffrey Campbell ones.

2. Neon sign
This is particularly great if you know someone who is redoing her room or going off to college soon! You can get a custom one or a premade one.

Amazon Wishlist + Prime Day Faves

Happy Prime Day! In honor of Amazon's huge sale for Prime members, I'm sharing some of my favorite Prime Day deals + some Amazon items I've had on my wishlist for the longest time. I personally don't think Prime Day deals are that great (they're normally only $3 or $4 off an item) but if you've been looking to purchase an item that never goes on sale, now's the time (hello Airpods & Babe Lash Serum!). However, Amazon gives its customers credits in the days leading up to the sale ($10 for shopping at Whole Foods and $10 for supporting a small business) so I have $20 to spend on anything!

I'll be updating this post throughout the sale, as deals change hourly. Not all of these are Prime Day deals, but since the credits are valid on anything I thought I'd share some of my most coveted items!

What Prime Day deals will you be taking advantage of?

Recreating Pinterest Outfits Vol. 2

I've been spending so much time on Pinterest lately. It truly is the best social media app and it's so inspiring! I love pinning outfits especially, so today I'm recreating a few of my favorite Pinterest outfits. I did another edition of this post a few months ago, and it was so fun to make! Enjoy!

Everything You Need To Know About Painting A Senior Parking Spot

 This past weekend, I spent a good 14-15 hours working on my senior parking spot. I went into this process without any idea of what to do, because there aren't many articles out there for parking spot tips. Today I'm sharing a comprehensive guide of all the supplies you need + what the process was like + tips you need to follow. PLEASE LEARN FROM MY MISTAKES!

The BEST Birthday Freebies To Take Advantage of in 2020

If you know me, you know I loveeee anything and everything free, so of course I take advantage of birthday freebies! My eighteenth birthday was yesterday, and I celebrated by getting a bunch of freebies from my favorite restaurants and stores. I thought I'd share a few of my favorites with you today--enjoy1

Sephora // Free gift for beauty insiders; varies by month

Madewell // $25 off coupon for Madewell Insiders (this is probably the best one! I bought this scarfthese earrings, and these hair clips)

Starbucks // Free drink/food item for rewards members

Pastel Picnic Outfit

I'm so excited to be back again today with another outfit post! This photoshoot is my favorite I've done in a long time. My friend Eleanor and I had a picnic photoshoot a couple weeks ago and I am obsessed with how the photos turned out! I love the cottagecore aesthetic of my outfit + the vintage film vibes of the pictures!

What It's Like To Have A Tiktok Go Viral (Over 700k Views)

A couple weekends ago, I discovered a trick to getting tops on Shein for 14 cents, so I made a Tiktok mentioning it. I figured it would do well and get a couple thousand views and have some people asking why, but it went completely viral and ended up with almost a million views. Here's a couple things I learned in the process!

People get MAD. I had so many rude comments, from people telling me to post the tutorial to people telling me I should be cancelled because I support fast fashion. (Yes, I'm aware fast fashion is bad, but I do get about 50% of my clothes secondhand + I don't have the money to shop at sustainable brands and it's hard to go thrifting right now because of Covid.) It kind of blows my mind that people would be so rude and demanding. A lot of people were mad because I didn't post the sequel right away and they started assuming I was just saying this for views, but in reality I just wanted to wait until Sunday when Shein had free shipping so I could actually show that each item was 14 cents.
