Bullet Journal










This year I am deciding to start bullet journaling. I  have already decided to do January and I wanted to share with y'all how I set it up. I looked at a lot of youtube videos and websites to see what the best set up for me was. Everyone has different ways of organizing things, so I would suggest you do some research before you start yours. I learned a lot of things from Amandarachlee's youtube channel. I copied one of her spreads for my January one, and I would recommend that you check her channel out for more details. I will keep y'all updated with how I like my setup and what I am going to do for my November one!!

Senior Pictures

Senior pictures have become very popular in the last few years. Some people like to go really overboard, but if your laid back like me then keep on reading for some outfit ideas. Sweet and simple is the best way to go in my opinion, but I really recommend that your outfit reflects your personality. If you love to be extra and over the top, go for it! If you love to be sweet and simple, go for it! Everyone is different, so don't feel pressured to be someone you're not in your pictures. Just be yourself, it's your time to shine! It may seem really intimidating and awkward at first, but I promise after the first five photos it is so much fun. I have never had my pictures professionally done before, but the photography told me what to do and everything. It's a breeze, I promise! Where I live there is nothing but tumbleweeds and dust, so don't worry about the location. You can live anywhere and still make the background look beautiful. So happy with how my turned out, and hopefully you will be too! 

For my first outfit i'm wearing a dress from American Eagle, black tights, and black booties.


My second outfit was a sweater from Zara, jeans, and bright pink earrings from target.


 My third outfit was a pink sweater from the loft, same blue jeans, and rose gold earrings from target.

15 Facts About Me...

1. I have five dogs, and I know what you’re thinking, yes, it's completely insane. There is Sophie, Champ, Allie, Charlie, and our new member Rebel. They are a handful, but they are family and I love each and every one of them.

2. I have a little brother who I love to pieces, even though he loves to annoy me.

3.  I LOVE music. I tend to listen more to alternative and Indy, but I could always jam to 2000's throwbacks and some 80's music with my mom.

4. Winter is my favorite season because I absolutely love sweaters, Christmas, and warming up to a cozy fire while drinking some nice hot coco.

5. I am a sucker for rom-com 80's movies. Nothing can beat Sixteen Candles, The Breakfast Club, St. Elmo's Fire, Can't Buy Me Love, and Pretty in Pink. If you ever need a movie to watch I highly suggest these.

6. I struggle with anxiety daily, but I try not to let it stop me from doing things I love.

7. I am 5'8 and refuse to wear heals because I would tower over everyone.

8. I still watch SpongeBob.

9. I live in a small town in Texas and I don't own a pair of cowboy boots.

10. Lost is my all-time favorite TV show and I have watched it too many times to count.

11. I live in my comfy pajamas and fuzzy socks.

12. Asos, American Eagle, and The Loft are my favorite places to shop.

13. I love Disney films especially Tangled. I probably know every single word by heart.

14. I have an overwhelming collection of stuffed animals. Build A Bears and Webkinz were my weakness when I was younger.

15. I am a very observant person and can remember faces but can never remember names.
