How to have a Christmas sleepover in August. Because why not? *shrugs*

Hello people! How are you doing? I hope you’re doing wonderful πŸ™‚

Today I’m back with a random post that I hope you’ll love. Last week, my friend and I were cleaning our house and singing karaoke and talking about holidays. Our favorite holiday (Christmas!!!!) came up (obviously ;)) and we were all like “It’s so sad that Christmas isn’t for another like 6 months! Yeah, I wish it was Christmas right now. Wait. What if we had a Christmas sleepover tonight?!? But.. it’s like the middle of summer? Who cares?!” and that was how it went down y’all. And the idea was born. We could go shopping, get supplies, watch a Christmas movie, listen to some Christmas songs, build a “gingerbread” house, and of course, string Christmas lights around the room.

So with all that being said, here are the SIX easy steps to having your very own Christmas sleepover in the middle of August!!

Step one:

Dress festive. Our first idea was to dress like it was winter but we decided that might make us look a bit too weird. So we opted for the more simple, refined look. Christmas themed fuzzy socks. Because fuzzy socks are the best and them being christmassy is just a bonus πŸ˜‰

Step two:

Get snacks. Preferably Christmas themed ones but alas, since it is August, your local store might not be supplying Christmas snacks unless they are super awesome. We did actually find peppermint sticks so that was cool πŸ™‚ If you’re planning on building a gingerbread house you will need to find some candy and supplies to decorate that! Warm foods and drinks that remind you of winter are also really swell!

Step three:

Create the atmosphere. String some lights up, bring in the fuzzy blankets and pillows. Get comfortable. If you want to be really extra you could even get all the Christmas decor. It’d be great ❀ Our area was pretty cute anyways πŸ™‚

Step 4:

Get yo self some tunes. Preferably Christmas ones so they go with the theme πŸ™‚

Step five:

Pick a holiday themed movie. In this instance we chose to watch Mandie and The Forgotten Christmas and it was pretty good. I fell asleep during it though because I was extremely tired so I need to rewatch it sometime πŸ˜‰

Step 6:

Build your self a beautiful gingerbread mansion home. And then eat it for breakfast the next morning xD Also if you have some struggles with them architecture and building, believe me, we’ve all been there. It’s rough πŸ™‚ But our “gingerbread house” turned out pretty good and it sure tasted good, until we made ourselves sick anyways πŸ˜‰


And there you have it! 6 easy steps to having your very own Christmas sleepover in the middle of August.

I hope you enjoyed! Would you have a spontaneous Christmas sleepover in august? What is your favorite thing to do with your friends? What is your favorite holiday? Chat with me in the comments, I’d love to talk!

May bullet journal setup *proudly shows you*

Hey hey beautiful people πŸ™‚ (how’s that for a new opening? I like it ;)) How are you all, I hope your well and staying safe with all the corona stuff flying around! I’m doing good! And to get straight to the point, it’s time for another May bullet journal setup post! Yay! I feel like you guys all enjoy these posts and I enjoy reading bujo posts and I ALSO enjoy journaling and blogging about my set up so it works out perfectly! Woah that was a long ramble *wipes sweat off forehead* πŸ˜‚ Anyways, for May’s theme I chose to do plants/succulents/cactus’/etc. and although I don’t totally love the theme, I’m very happy with how it came out! Okayyy I know what y’all are thinking, lets see some pictures! πŸ˜‰

This is my cover page! I’m pretty happy with it, I think the plants are all so cute but my calendar thing is kind of messed up by that hanging plant/(and the plant on the bottom right) but oh welllll xD. You don’t notice it until I mention it πŸ˜‰ OHHH ALSO: I LOVE THE QUOTE, don’t you? It gives me happy vibes πŸ™‚

Next my calendar, pretty basic, nothing super special but it’s still cute! I have a bit of birthdays this month, all bunched into about a week xD. Hopefully the COVID-19 situation calms down and my calendar can fill up this month!

My mood tracker! I struggled making this but it turned out pretty cute! I LOVE the plant theme, I always do a plant theme 1+ time/s per year because it’s simple and super cute πŸ™‚ Hopefully I have a lot of green days in this coming month!

Next is my playlist and I added a couple songs that I’ve been loving! My musical taste/genre is literally all over the place, but its fine πŸ˜‰

Last but not least, I have my goals/self care challenge page. I’ve recently been doing self care challenges each month (except I skipped April) but it’s quite fun and it motivates me to do/complete my goals! I drew some cute little greenery sketches on some simple green Washi tape to spice it up and I think it turned out adorable!

............................................................................................

Well, that concludes my May bujo setup, I hope you enjoyed! Sorry for not posting for a while, I’ve been staying busy with at-home-projects during quarantine!

What have you been up to? Which page was your favorite? Do you have a bullet journal? Talk to me in the comments, I love to chat! ❀️❀️❀️

Wishing you the happiest of Mays,

April Bullet journal Setup: *bows*

Hey hey πŸ™‚ How are you? I’m good :)) This month, with the quarantine stuff going on, I had a bit of extra time so I managed to get my bujo setup done in time! I chose to draw a cute cafe ( I completely copied of a Pinterest so welp but the rest of my pages are original xD) but then I kind of struggled knowing what to do the rest of my little doodles as, because I didn’t want to just do a bunch of little cafes everywhere πŸ™‚ So we ended up doing a lot of coffee cups xD

Onto the pictures!

My cute little cafe πŸ™‚ I am really happy with how this came out! I listened to a whole church sermon while I sketched it, so it came out pretty good, imo πŸ˜‰ I love cute little cafes and if this same cafe exists somewhere in this world, I would be very happy πŸ™‚ On the other side of this page is a quote ( you can see the whole spread in the picture above) but I didn’t take a pic of the quote… So yeah, this is my cover page! Overall, I’m happy with it!

Next is a really cool ( in my opinion) college that I crafted together using coffee pics I printed off of Pinterest! On the opposite page is my mood tracker, which I’m pretty happy with! Sorry this pic is a bit blurry, I don’t know why this one came out like that!

Coolness, am I right?!?

This is my calendar that I spent a good hour creating. *rolls eyes* I HATE making calendars because it takes me FOREVER to line everything up and get it to look decent but it finally happened so yay!

Next is my bucket list/goals and my playlist! I was pretty happy with how both of these turned out!

Last and (kinda least) we have my weekly spread/journal! It’s INSANELY basic, but I chose functionality over intenseness and I’m hoping it works well!
. . . . . . . . . .

And that’s all for today!!! What’d u think?! Which page is your favorite? Do you have a bullet journal? If so, what was your theme for April? I hope u enjoyed and I’ll try and post soon!

Stay safe ❀️

2020 Birthday haul *throws confetti on all of us*


Hey hey πŸ™‚ How are you? I’m good πŸ™‚ Just hanging out at home while this corona virus stuff hopefully blows over 🀞🏼🀞🏼🀞🏼 I figured I would take advantage of all the spare time I now have and hopefully I can go a lot of content up! Anyways, let’s get onto the haul!

. . . . . . . . . .

*disclaimer: I am in no way, shape, or form trying to brag about what I got, I personally really enjoy reading these kinds of posts so when my birthday happened in February, I figured I could do a gift haul! I hope you enjoy!

First up: My parents got me Birkenstocks!! Ahhh I love them so much haha! Fun story, I used to think birks were ugly and they looked like grandma shoes but then the “vsco girl trend thing ordeal” happened and even though I’m not a vsco girl, I now like Birkenstocks. So I’ve begged my mom since last summer and I finally convinced her to get them for me for my Birthday! I absolutely love them, but I have had to get a few callouses and I have like a corn thing or something on the side of my foot and it hurts? My mom said I need to take a break from wearing them but we’ll see πŸ˜‰

Yes, I got the basic ones πŸ™„ They’re so cute though!

Next, some takes my bro’s got me. I LOVE takis. They kill me everytime (bc I’m a wimp and can’t handle hot stuff) but I will continue eating them because I want to. and because they’re addicting and delicious. What are ur thoughts on takis? I feel like they’re low-key controversial πŸ˜‚

YUMMMMM.

From my grandparents, I got a brush, some chocolate, paint (not pictured, idk why) and a $25 Visa card (which I’m very excited to use bc I’ve never had one before xD) Luckily, the chocolates were gluten free so I could eat them! I’ve been gluten free for almost a whole month now y’all! But I really enjoyed eating the chocolate, bc duh. It’s chocolate?!?

Cool beans πŸ‘πŸ»

Next, my aunt and uncle gave me a carton of orange juice. because they know I love it. So I drank out of the carton immediately, so that my siblings wouldn’t steal any (they’re scared of my gErMsss) and I thoroughly enjoyed the WHOLE carton! My aunt and uncle also gave me two ten dollar gift-cards to amazon, and I’m super excited about that bc amazon is awesome and you can always find stuff to buy on there πŸ™‚

my love ❀️ Also the ‘Jas’ was me making sure my siblings knew it was mine πŸ˜‰ I’m very protective of my juice.

I also got 15 dollars from some friends so thats cool bc money is cool πŸ™‚

And that’s that! I really loved all the gifts I got! I hope you enjoyed reading, and check back soon for my April bullet journal setup!

Do you like takis? What’s your take on Birkenstocks? Are you a fan of orange juice?

Let me know in the comments, lonnngggggg comments make my days! πŸ’•

P.s. we finally found toilet paper so all is calm in our house. Just kidding, we weren’t that worried about it but it’s kind of nice to know you have toilet paper, right?!
