Life Lately Vol. 45

I'll be honest: this week was a rough one. The transition back to school is always hard when you're coming off a week-long break, and I feel like my teachers really slammed everyone with a lot of work. I'm trying to stay positive, though, because tomorrow is December and with December comes peppermint-flavored everything, gift shopping, Christmas music, happiness + cheer, and Vlogmas!

During Thanksgiving Break, my family and I spent the night in Sundance Square in Fort Worth to watch a Christmas parade. It was so crowded and cold (I think we lasted about 20 minutes at the parade before we left to get pizza) but the square was all decorated for Christmas and we had fun walking around and shopping the next day!

Holiday Gift Guide: Reader's Picks

I am so excited about today's gift guide because I get to feature you guys!! I asked y'all on Instagram for some input on Christmas gifts, and y'all came through. Today I'm sharing the most extensive gift guide I've ever put together, featuring a) your favorite items that y'all have either given or received, and b) items that are on your wishlist this year. Keep scrolling, because this post is going to be a long one!

Holiday Gift Guide: Annabelle's Picks / What To Get Your Sister

This gift guide is dedicated to Annabelle. She's occasionally featured on Blissfully Brooke, but if you don't know her, she's my little sister and my favorite human on this planet. I thought it would be fun to get her input on the best gifts to give, so today, I'm sharing some items that she loves and some gifts she recommends... basically everything she owns that makes her innately "Annabelle."

This gift guide is perfect for your little sister, best friend, older sister... pretty much anyone! Annabelle is eleven but she is mature beyond her years; she is an old soul and is eleven going on thirty. She is the funniest person I know, and if you've ever had the joy of meeting her you'll understand just how uniquely perfect she is.

I always joke that Annabelle is like a guy when it comes to sneakers. She is so protective over her Vans and obsessive about keeping them clean. I always know she'll appreciate a good pair of sneakers, whether they're Vans, Adidas, Nike... anything.

12 Things Vol. 7

We've made it!! Thanksgiving Break is upon us (well, after today, at least) and I could not be more excited. I am so excited for a whole week off from school: I'm ready to eat a lot of good food, spend time with my family, and do a lot of shopping. Today I'm sharing twelve things that have been on my mind lately... enjoy!

1. Okay I really want this Christmas sweater... yes it's obnoxious but I love it so much

The 10 Best Clothing Boutiques In The Dallas-Fort Worth Area

It's no secret that I love to shop. However, when given the choice between shopping at a mall full of big corporations versus a plaza with tons of boutiques, I will choose the latter every time. I love discovering new boutiques because a) I think it's great to support smaller businesses and b) you can find tons of unique pieces that nobody else has.

In honor of Small Business Saturday coming up in a couple weeks, I thought I would share some of my favorite boutiques in the DFW area for all of my Texas followers! Don't worry - if you're not from Texas, some of these boutiques have locations in other states :)

Life Lately Vol. 44

Happy Friday, friends! Just a warning: this post is going to be really sporadic and all over the place... but those posts are usually the best kind! :) Grab a cup of coffee and keep reading to see what's been going on lately + some housekeeping I need to discuss with you!

My school's annual Color Run was last weekend. This year was my second year going and I loved getting to spend time with my friends + throw colored powder everywhere :)

Currently Vol. 15

Happy Friday, friends!! This weekend is shaping up to be a busy one: I have a 5k tomorrow morning, followed by a soccer game, then an NCL event on Sunday. Grab a cup of coffee and sit back to see everything I've been loving lately!

Watching... Riverdale! I started watching it two weeks ago and I am completely caught up (yes, I know, I have a problem). I also finished Friends and I'm so sad about it! My mom and I need a new show to watch together now - if you have any ideas, let me know!
