Weekly Recap #1

Happy Friday, y'all!! It's the best day of the week!! Today is my last day of high school ever!! I can't believe it's actually happening! Everyone says it goes by fast, but I seriously can't fathom that it's really my last day ever. It's bittersweet for sure, but I am excited for this next chapter of my life and how I will grow in the future! I've heard that so many amazing milestones happen the next ten years after high school and I'm so excited to see what's to come. I hope it has a lot of traveling, best friends, blog trips, and hopefully a hubby (crazy to think about now haha)! Anyways, lately I have started getting into a blogging slump where I haven't been too sure what exactly I want to write about. Sooo I took to the internet, and looked up some of my favorite bloggers. If y'all haven't checked out Styled By McKenz y'all need to asap! I took inspiration from her weekly wrap-ups and decided to put my own spin on it!

So, basically, every Friday I'm going to recap my week. I'll talk about what's going on each week, maybe some weekly goals, and keep y'all up to date with my life! I'm so excited for these blog posts because it's more like a journal entry than a formal post! So, I really hope y'all love them too! As always please message me on instagram here if you ever have any fun blog ideas or just want to talk! I love doing this and I hope it inspires you to follow your dreams and make that youtube channel or start that t-shirt brand. My biggest goal on the blog and as a small (but I'm gonna be big one day y'all) influencer, is to help and support people who aspire or pursue to be anything they want to be! I seriously love y'all lol *sappy moment* now let me introduce y'all to my first ever recap😉

What I've Been Doin' This Week

Wednesday, May 19th

I hate that I started this on Wednesday, but I just got the inspiration to make this post Tuesday night so here I am with photos for only wed-fri, I'm sorry y'all I know🥺 I promise I'll make it up next week with a regular mon-fri week update!! But today, I started off my last Wednesday of high school by rushing to get ready for school on time lol (I made it btw) After school, I ran to sonic and got my bestie and I a quick snack before we went to my elementary school for a senior celebration! It was so so sweet to look back on all of our pictures and memories! We played old gym games, saw all of our sweet teachers, and walked around school to see what it looked like to us now - crazy crazy🥺❤️ *ft me trying not to cry as I type this*... after we left school, my bestie (emma) and I ended our night by celebrating our last Wednesday in high school with snow cones from Pelican's in Gallatin, TN (ps if y'all want the best snow cones ever - RUN there now)!

Pelican's Location: 817 S Water Ave, Gallatin, TN 37066

Thursday, May 20th

Last day of high school ever for me!! Can't believe it, y'all! Time flew by, but I am soo excited for college and this new chapter of my life!! I have a good feeling I'm just really going to thrive in college eekkk so happy!! I celebrated this morning with some starbiez because we hit 19k on Pinterest so THANK Y'ALL! I finished out my day by finishing some orders at work, and then got ready for graduation this Saturday! I got my nails done to match my graduation earrings and I got a spray tan, so I don't bling everyone there haha!

OOTD: pale yellow top is from lizard thicket + still in stock yay!!, mom jeans are from American eagle, and sneakers are from Poppie's boutique!

Friday, May 21st

Sooo I'm editing this and finally just figured out how to make a college on my site *praise jesus🙌🏻* I mean, it's taken me almost three months lol! So be appreciate of these high quality editing skills, y'all. This a.m. I got ready, took flowers to my favorite teachers on my "last day". . . I skipped my real last day (which was today), but I still came to bring them flowers brought to you by Kroger supermarket lol! Then, my bestie and I got together that night and bought all the last minute items we needed for our joint-grad party! Y'all we stayed up until 10 pm that night setting everything up and still didn't get done. But it's okay because we celebrated our hard work by taking a break and getting Pelican's again this week!

Outfit deets: bodysuit tank is free people, jeans are abercrombie & fitch, cardigan is sold out but from lizard thicket - I linked a similar one here, slides are from rack room!

Blog Updates and Recent Posts

How to find your perfect prom dress, hairstyle, shoes and more! Ahhh I loved this post so much! If you love prom pictures and getting dressed up, this post is for you girl!

Day in the life of a high school blogger! This Saturday post was all about a typical day in the life for me at work, and all the fun influence-things I do on the daily! Such a cute and easy read.

This Week's Goals and Inspo

If you haven't already noticed, I love dropping quotes and inspirational tips at the end of each blog post, but I thought talking would make things a bit more personal with my true blog-girlies. I mean, seriously y'all, if you made it to the end of this post we need to best friends because I could write for forever, lol. But anyways, I've felt very out of touch lately and unorganized due to a crazy school year and just busy chapter of my life. So my biggest goal this week has just been to get back into a routine. Usually, I'm super organized, planner-driven, and never have a messy room. But y'all this year has been a whirlwind and I have never been messier since I was probably like seven haha. So anyways, I plan on getting back into the habit of running in the morning, eating a little better, drinking my water, and keep my space CLEAN!! Lord knows I'm happier in a clean space! So, if you're anything like me and feeling this way too, well girl, clean that room, drink that water, and get to work. I know it sucks at first, but I've felt so much better this week now that I'm back into a routine. You got this! Manifesting good vibes and healthy habits for y'all lol! Maybe a healthy habits post is in our future hehe!!

And with that, I hope y'all have an amazing rest of y'all's weekend with lots of laughs, good food, and happy vibes. Y'all mean the world to me and thank y'all for 23,000, YES I said it, 23,000 Pinterest views!! Y'all make me so happy! As always...
