Funky socks review || ToBeNamed studio collab!

Hey lovelies!! It’s me, Jasmin, and I’m back with another fun collab! These kind of posts are my favs because it gets my name out on other platforms and I get to help another small creators/shops grow! With the Holiday season coming up, these collaborations with Etsy shop owners are wonderful and I hope this post or one of my ones in the near future helps you find the perfect gift to give a loved one in your life!

Ok, to the point of this post after my little ramble! Amber, one of the sweetest ladies out there, agreed to send me some of her lovely socks off her Etsy shop and I can not even begin to explain how thrilled I was! When someone agrees to collaborate with me it always makes my day and this time was no different! Amber’s shop, the ToBeNamedStudio has some of the cutest funky socks out there. Recently I became obsessed with odd socks. I mean, what’s not to like? Socks are a fun thing to be creative with because if you’re a little shy like me, you can cover them up with your jeans or wear ’em loud and proud out in the open, how I prefer to 😁 I love wearing crazy socks with my birks, hey dudes and honestly any shoes haha! Amber’s shop also has some of the cutest earrings that I may just have to order in the near future! Her customer service was excellent and she was so so kind and thoughtful in how she went about this collaboration! I’ll link the two pairs of socks she sent me at the end of this post but first lets look at some pictures!!

**All photos taken by yours truly, edited on Lightroom and the socks are modeled by my dear friend “S”. You know who u are and thank you for being such a willing foot model! You’re da best <33 Also ty other “S” for hand modeling, it could be a lovely career option for you :))

First off, we have this lovely pair! These socks are so cute and they remind me of peaches and the moon, idk man haha πŸ€·πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ They look so so cute worn with birks and they’re such good quality! They keep your toes nice and warm πŸ₯°


The effort these photos took is insane. We were supporting, shaking, holding strong, pushing up and sliding off. But they turned out so cool!

beautiful aren’t they??

Next pair:

love this!!

THESE ARE MY FAVS πŸ₯° I love them so much, the color is so fun, the design is the cutest and I love how the toes are green and the heel is orange. Also quality 100/100 πŸ‘ŒπŸΌ

SO CUTEEE πŸ₯°

And that’s all I’ve got??!! What’d you think of the photography? I hope you liked it haha, I wasn’t so confident in my foot photographing skills but I’m super happy with how these turned out!

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 🀩

Insta: Magic&Cozy

Etsy: Magic&Cozy 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!!

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 πŸ˜‰ 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 πŸ™‚

  • 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 πŸ₯° 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 πŸ˜‰

xx, Jasmin

PenToPaperUS review/snail mail kit! *Jazz hands*

Hello! How are you doing today? I hope you’re doing amazing πŸ™‚

Today, I’m here with another review!

This is one of my favorites, and I can’t wait to show y’all! The wonderful and lovely Dana from her Etsy shop PenToPaperUS kindly sent me a pen pal kit and I adore it!

First of all, Dana was a pleasure to work with, she was so willing to collaborate and sent the product out very fast. Second, the product is amazing!

This is what Dana sent me! Everything was packaged beautifully and it came with such a cute note! I received the jumbo travel kit, which sadly isn’t on her shop right now but there are tons more, and they’re all just as cute!

as a thank you, Dana sent me this and ahhhh it’s so so cute! I can’t wait to use it. Any suggestions on what I should use it for?

Unwrapped out of the tissue paper, here’s the kit!!!!! Doesn’t it just make your inner pen pal heart happy?!

LOOK AT IT. Just take a moment and look. It should make you happy. It made me so happy. The kit included some lined paper, a couple envelopes, a pen, some travel themed cards, a couple travel themed images, a postcard, some washiest tape samples, some little cards and string samples, some paper clips and other clips, a couple little cut outs, and a tea bag. SO MUCH BEAUTIFULNESS 🀩

Next, a closeup of the travel themed images! These are all so cute and they’re perfect for decorating envelopes, using in journals and so much more. I just used the one with all the word to decorate an envelope the other day and I also sent my friend one! I think they are adorable and I love them 🀩

I received this super cool looking pen also, and I know this is a little weird to note but it’s such good quality! It’s made of like metal and so it’s really heavy duty feeling.

Last but not least, here’s a closer picture of some of the “accessories”! We’ve got these ADORABLE little tags which are so handy for washi tape samples and some paper clips and plain clips. Theres also two string samples which are really fun, I’ve never done this before! And the LITTLE ENVELOPE πŸ₯° Isn’t it the cutest?!


that’s all! I adore this kit, and I give it a 10/10. Everything is really good quality, which is a huge plus and the kit is really affordable. Make sure to go check out dana’s shop, she’s the sweetest and I love the reason why she started her shop ❀

Check out Dana’s shop here!

Thank you so so much Dana, for agreeing to collaborate with me, I appreciate it so much!

anyways, that’s all for today! I hope you have a lovely day and I hope you enjoyed this post!
