Currently Vol. 25

Happy Friday! Not going to lie, this week has been kind of a rough one. We had Monday off for a teacher work day, which was nice, but it feels like all my teachers have been piling on work to compensate for the short week. I don't have any big projects or anything, but every little thing is just piling up. However, we've made it to Friday and I know it's going to be a great weekend! Grab a cup of coffee and enjoy!

Fall is upon us and I'm so happy about it
Wearing... my go-to outfit lately has been an oversized graphic t-shirt, ripped boyfriend jeans, and sneakers!

Fall Sweaters Under $50

As hard as it is for me to think about (still 90 degrees here in Texas), sweater weather is upon us (unless you live in the south haha). Today I am sharing a roundup of my favorite sweaters under $50! I am so excited for all things fall fashion... hopefully I can wear my sweaters soon, because nothing is better than wearing a cozy sweater, baking some cookies, and curling up by the fire.

Just kidding. I don't get to do that. This is Texas.

Which one is your favorite? I love the cheetah one and the gingham one!!

Life Lately Vol. 56

Happy Friday! Today I'm sharing another Life Lately post; grab a cup of coffee and enjoy!

It's crazy that we've been in school for a month now! It's definitely been a long, stressful month, but all things considered, it's been a pretty good one! This picture was taken on the first day of school (check out my first day of school vlog here).

In honor of making it through the first week of school, Eleanor & I went to go get brunch at Breadwinners! They have the best cake ever (highly recommend the mocha crunch cake).

On Labor Day, we went to the cutest coffee shop in Fort Worth - Dwell Coffee + Biscuits! They sell tons of warm, flaky biscuits - I got a biscuit with strawberry jam and a caramel latte. We did some shopping, and then stopped at Melt Ice Creams (the best ice cream EVER!). I got their cookie crack ice cream in a waffle cone!

Friday night lights are back!!! I'm definitely not a huge football fan but I went to our first home game and it was a lot of fun. I definitely want to try to go to the majority of our home games this year.

A couple pics from my 17th birthday party!! I had a bunch of my friends come over to my house for fajitas and cake. It was so good to get to see everyone (a lot of my friends go to a different high school than me, so I don't get to see them that often).

And now a pic from my actual birthday! My birthday was on Monday, September 9, and it was such a good day. Check out my birthday vlog here!

Last weekend, my grandparents drove up from Houston to celebrate my grandma's birthday! We went shopping, went to dinner, and ate lots of cake! It was such a great weekend!

And now that brings me here... it's currently Friday morning as I finish this up and I'm excited about the weekend ahead of me! I have Monday off so it's going to be a great long weekend!

My Favorite Clothing Items of Summer 2019

Still stuck in summer mode for today's post! I thought it would be fun to share a roundup of my most-worn clothing items of the summer. Most of these items are on major sale right now, but you can still wear a lot of them throughout the fall (especially if you live somewhere warm, like me). Enjoy!
This! Top! I bought it on a whim when I was looking for something to wear to the sunflower fields, and I ended up falling in love with it. It's on sale for $7, and it comes in three colors: white, peach, and green! I love it because you tie it in the back, so it's completely adjustable. I've worn it with white shorts, denim shorts, and flowy pants... basically anything and everything!

12 Things Vol. 16

Happy Friday! This post was supposed to go up last week but I was so busy that I honestly just forgot, but I'm back today with another 12 things post! Grab a cup of coffee and enjoy!

1. Football season is upon us! I'm definitely not a huge fan (or a fan at all) but I went to the first home game of the season last weekend and it was actually pretty fun (even though I left during the third quarter lol).

The BEST Birthday Freebies To Take Advantage Of In 2019

My mom is probably rolling her eyes as she reads this post, because this is probably the most characteristically "Brooke" post I could ever write. If you know me, you know that few things make me happier than getting coupons/discounts. I love scouring the Internet for coupons and deals, so of course I was going to take advantage of every single birthday gift I could!

Back in August, I began researching the best places to get birthday freebies (because most places require you to sign up a month in advance) and today I'm putting together a list of the best deals that came my way over the past couple weeks! My birthday was yesterday, and I spent the entire weekend celebrating! It has been such a fun past few days and I can't wait to recap them in a Life Lately post!

ULTA // Free makeup product for ULTAmate rewards members; varies by month (I got a NARS lipstick) + 2x points during your birthday month

Snuffer's // Free milkshake for rewards members

Sephora // Free gift for beauty insiders; varies by month (I got a Drunk Elephant skincare set)

Trend Alert: Tie Dye

I want to start doing more blog posts where I share current trends + my favorite clothing items that encompass each trend. I thought I would kick this series off by featuring something I've been seeing everywhere: tie dye! From sweatshirts to dresses to everything in between, tie die is everywhere and I am loving it!

Which item is your favorite? I love those dresses and smiley tees!!
