magic and cozy scrunchie review *slips scrunchies onto my wrist*

Hey friends! How are you doing? Today I’m back with a really cute post that I’m super excited for!! A month or so ago I reached out to Hannah from Magic and Cozy scrunchies on insta and she kindly sent me some of her lovely scrunchies to try out and take some pictures of. I had a ton of fun taking and editing the pictures and I’m so excited to show you guys! So to start off this post, here are the links to Hannah’s instagram and Etsy 🤩

Okay, onto the pictures!!

Aren’t these the cutest!?! I love how scrunched these scrunchies are and the pastel colors are my favorites 🤩 They’re so summery! This set is called the summer pastels handmade fluffy scrunchies and it certainly lives up to it’s name, these scrunchies are HUGGEEEE. I have really thick hair so these are perfect for me as some normal scrunchies can look small and kind of drown in my hair when I put it up but I love how these scrunchies stand out.

OH LOOK A CODE!!!

okayyy, what’d you think of my pictures?? I hope you love them as much as I do and pleaseee check out this shop, you won’t regret it! These scrunchies are the perfect summer accessory to dress up a plain t-shirt and some jean cut offs and they’ll look perfect in those summery instagram pictures ❤

well, I hope you enjoyed! Thank you so much for reading, please leave a comment down below, I’d love to chat!!

To Make Him Known Co. review *curls up in my fuzzy sweater*

Hello friends! How are you doing today? I hope you’re doing wonderfully 🙂

Today I’m back with a really exciting post, a review of ToMakeHimKnownCo.!!

Here on my blog, typically I tend to lean more towards pen-pal or journaling as that’s more my niche (as you can probably tell from the name of my blog) but I really love fashion so I’ve been wanting to dabble in more posts about it! I reached out to the lovely team at ToMakeHimKnownCo and they kindly agreed to send me a product to try and review! They sent me the ‘Make Heaven Crowded‘ crewneck which is one of my FAVORITE things in their shop, #1 because I love the quote, like it’s one of my favorites ever. And #2, because crewnecks are super comfortable which I’m all about and it’s brown which is also really cool because brown is definitely not as popular of a color for clothes I feel like. A good 50% of my hoodies and crewnecks are gray which seems to wash me out and make me look paler *or so my mother says*. Idk 🤷🏼‍♀️

Anyways let’s look at some pictures and then I’ll tell you some thoughts on it!

*Shout out to my sister for being willing to “model” the crewneck for me , isn’t she just the sweetest? Also all photos were edited with Lightroom and taken by me!

I think cuffing or rolling the sleeves looks super cute!

Adding a cute pair of jeans, some boots and chunky socks is one of my favorite looks!

Do you know how hard it is to get the crewneck position just right so the wording looks good?!

I’m quite proud of my pictures for this post 🙈

Especially this one, I love this picture!

And this one! We took pictures back at the pond behind our house and I really like how they turned out 🙂


Overall, I give this lovely sweater a 10/10. I found no cons with it! Typically with sweaters that have words or designs on them when you wash them it can peel or crack the words but even after washing this sweater I didn’t see anything that would leave me to believe that would happen! It’s such a warm, fuzzy crewneck and I absolutely love the design. Check it out right now, here! The price is also really affordable and good for a crewneck, I definitely would buy this again without a second thought! It’s a great addition to my closet 🥰

A huge thanks to the team at ToMakeHimKnownCo. for collaborating with me, I really enjoyed working with y’all!

What picture from this post was your favorite? How’s your day going? What’s you favorite color right now?

Thank you so much for reading, and have a lovely day!

Mug review and my favorite hot cocoa recipe! *cue the Christmas tunes and posts*

Hello! How are you doing today? I hope your doing amazing, and guys: guess what?! It’s officially socially acceptable to start celebrating Christmas!! I may or may not have been celebrating Christmas since the beginning of November, I’ll let you decide what to believe 😉 In my opinion, Christmas only comes once a year and its the best holiday so why not go all out?

Today I’m back with a super fun and exciting post, and it’s also special because its my first Christmas post of 2020! I know your reader is probably full of Christmas posts so if you’re reading this, thank you very much, I appreciate it ❤

The wonderful Shellea from shelleaandscout over on Etsy kindly agreed to send me a mug in exchange for a blog post and man am I excited for this post! I chose a Christmas mug with this post in mind and the mug Shellea sent me was PERFECT! She sent me the Merry Christmas mug, which is one of my favorites from her shop. Check it out here!

The mug is the perfect size in my opinion and is so fun to drink hot cocoa out of. It’s this really festive red color and says Merry Christmas with some cute little stars around it. The design is made of permanent vinyl so it is completely dishwasher safe although Shellea recommends hand washing so it holds up longer. My mug was put in the dishwasher (unknown to me) on the top rack and held up wonderfully, without any of the vinyl starting to peel or anything!

Next, let’s move on to the cocoa recipe! This cocoa recipe is my family favorite, with it being passed around from one of my cousins and now its a family tradition to make for Christmas movie nights! This recipe originally comes from a Taste of Home magazine, published in 2008 but it’s been altered a little by my family and cousins 🙂

  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup baking cocoa
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 4 cups milk
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 12 tsp almond extract
  • marshmallows and whipped cream (optional)

The recipe:

  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup baking cocoa
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 4 cups milk
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp almond extract
  • marshmallows and whipped cream (optional)

Heat milk, water, and vanilla and almond extracts in a medium sized pot. Add in other ingredients, mix it up, and let warm until your desired heat! Top with whipped cream and marshmallows and enjoy!

Next, I poured my hot cocoa into my lovely mug and I took some adorable Christmas photos that I’m quite happy with 🥰 Here are my favorites!

*These photos are edited with a filter so this is not the true color of the mug, the actual color is brighter. You can see the true color in Shelleas picture on her shop.
So very Christmas-y!!

Ahhh I love those photos! So Christmas-y and they definitely help me get into the spirit ❤ Overall, I give this mug a 10/10. I don’t have any complaints and I adore it for drinking my cocoa out of! It also works really well for taking super cute Christmas photos! A huge thank you to Shellea for sending me this mug, I appreciate it so much! Make sure to check out her shop, her mugs are priced super reasonably and I highly recommend.

Thats all for today! I hope you enjoyed this post, I sure enjoyed writing it for y’all! How are you preparing for Christmas if you celebrate it? If you don’t celebrate Christmas what are some fun things happening in your life soon? Do you call it hot cocoa or hot chocolate? Do you have a Christmas mug? I recommend buying one from Shellea if you don’t 😉

Enneagram, is it accurate? Collab with Ainsley Beth! *Fist bump*

Hey guys! Today I’m back with a post that I’m super excited for! I reached out to Ainsley from her blog, Ainsley Beth. Ainsley is the sweetest and I love her blog! She has super relatable posts and her aesthetic is EVERYTHING.

Anyways, a while back while scrolling Pinterest, I seen that Ainsley had pinned some enneagram 9 pins and after looking at her boards I found out that she’s an enneagram 9, just like me! I reached out to her through her website and asked her if she would be interested in doing a enneagram 9 assumptions post with me and she agreed! Well, the day is here for our posts to go up and I’m so excited! You can check out Ainsley’s post here.

Anyways, if you dont know what an enneagram is, here’s a quick explanation!

From one point of view, the Enneagram can be seen as a set of nine distinct personality types, with each number on the Enneagram denoting one type. It is common to find a little of yourself in all nine of the types, although one of them should stand out as being closest to yourself. This is your basic personality type.

Type One is principled, purposeful, self-controlled, and perfectionistic.

Type Two is generous, demonstrative, people-pleasing, and possessive.

Type Three is adaptable, excelling, driven, and image-conscious.

Type Four is expressive, dramatic, self-absorbed, and temperamental.

Type Five is perceptive, innovative, secretive, and isolated.

Type Six is engaging, responsible, anxious, and suspicious.

Type Seven is spontaneous, versatile, acquisitive, and scattered.

Type Eight is self-confident, decisive, willful, and confrontational.

Type Nine is receptive, reassuring, complacent, and resigned.

**info from the enneagram institute website, which you can check out here!

So, Ainsley and I are both type 9’s. We both exchanged some assumptions/questions that are generally true about type 9’s and we wanted to see how accurate or how much we relate to the assumptions! Here are the ones Ainsley sent me:

You’re a very genuine person

Ok, so for this one, my answer is: I try to be! Sometime it can be really hard to be completely yourself and I’m also pretty shy and self conscious but I try my best. I hope I’m considered sincere, I would say for the I am and I hope my friends would say the same.

You like naps/sleeping

Ok. YES. Who doesn’t like sleeping 😂 I have to say, I don’t really enjoy naps though. I can never fall asleep during the middle of the day unless we’re on a really long car ride coming back from a weekend of camping. Then I will nap 😉 But usually naps just aren’t my thing. But sleeping is FANTASTIC. I hate waking up in the morning and everyday I wish I could sleep in more than I do haha!

You keep your opinions to yourself

For the most part I do, especially if I don’t know you very well. But if we’re close and I’m comfortable telling you my opinions and I don’t feel like you’ll judge me, I’ll let you know what I think 😉

 You’re creative

Yes! I love being creative! Art is one of my favorites and I love creating things! Sometimes it’s hard to be creative and original but I adore painting, drawing, journaling, pen-paling and just creating things to make the world a better and more beautiful place. Ok, I’ll admit that sounds cheesy but it’s true ✌🏻

You love long talks

YES YES YES. A thousand times yes! Long talks are the best, especially if they’re with someone I love and am really comfortable around! Long night time talks at sleepovers are 10/10 the best.


And that’s that! I feel like I can relate to most of these, which is really cool! I think enneagrams are so neat because it’s so cool to be able to look at your “type” and relate to it and see how it might affect how you think, make decisions and etc.!
I hope you enjoyed this post, lemme know what you think in the comments! I’d love to chat 🙂

Also, thank you so much Ainsley for doing this with me! It was a ton of fun and I really enjoyed it 🙂 ❤

Have you ever took the enneagram test? What enneagram type are you? Can you relate to any of these assumptions? How’s your week going? Happy October!
