List of Loves Part 2

2 blog posts in one day???

If this is my first post you’re reading, then welcome!!! Feel free to check out my 1st post to this series List of Loves Part 1

IT’S TIME. List of Loves Part 2. I was going to wait a little longer to make a new post with my favorite things BUT  I had some stuff I really wanted to share with y’all.

Rompers. These things are the best. Except when you have to use the bathroom. I found a gorgeous one at JcPenny + it was on sale (even better) 

Shoes. I think I might have mentioned my sandals in another post but I have 3 pairs from American Eagle and they’re all amazing. I definitely need some more for summer time! Also I got some cute shoes from Target which I LOVE they are cute and super comfy. I will try to link them below! 

The two pair on the left are American eagle sandals & the black ones on the right are from target! My other pair of American Eagle sandals are in my romper picture!

Gym Time. Working out is something I’ve wanted to do for awhile so now I’m finally doing it. (yay me) I figured summer was the perfect time to do it. Maybe once I get to a regular routine of my workout I could make a post about that! I’ve done a few spin classes and that’s the best workout ever!

Saving Money. Of course who doesn’t love saving money right? But this is for something that’s important to me. I want to go to college for photograph and videography, so I’m saving up to buy my first REAL camera. I need about $700 and right now I’m around $200. It’s not a lot yet but all of that money is just from what I got by selling old clothes and just saving the dollars I get here and there. Also COUPONS. They’re amazing. We get some sent to our house from the store and food places in our town. Not to mention there’s tons of apps that help you find ways to save money with coupons.

Being Comfortable. This is something that I’m working on for myself. I never had acne until 8th grade and it used to be very bad so of course my face has some scars and unevenness in my skin color. It’s gotten better since then and I have few pimples now it’s just scars but it’s not perfect & I’m learning to be comfortable with that + I take WAY better care of it and try to keep it healthy. Of course I don’t have PERFECT skin (yet) but I’m okay with what it looks like without tons of makeup. (If you like to wear makeup that’s awesome, do you. I’ve never been good at it) now that it’s summer I most likely won’t wear any and I’m totally okay with that.

Junior Year. I loved junior year. It was long and stressful and crazy because that’s all high school is, but it was fun and a new experience. This year has come and gone so fast that I can’t believe I’m a SENIOR now. 

Netflix. Let me share a few of my favorite shows to watch on Netflix.

1. 13Reasons Why (be prepared to cry because I did a lot)

2. Friday Night Lights (I think I love this because I’m from Texas so HS football is important)

3. New Girl

4. Gilmore Girls

5. Dance Academy 

6. The Carrie Diaries

7. Pretty Little Liars 


9. The Secret Life of Pets (can’t lie I loved it)

10. The Fosters

I could name a ton more but there’s a few to get you started. 

I’ll try to include more pictures in these because some times a bunch of words looks boring.


Let’s Catch Up + Discount Code

If you read all the way through there’s a cool discount code you can find!

The last few weeks of school are always hectic and full of things that need to be done. Tons of semester reviews and final projects + graduation parties to attend.

Saturday morning I went to a spin class with my sister at our gym and it was intense. REALLY FUN. but intense. Our class was about an hour and I had little baby deer legs after because working out is new for me but I love it already!

Of course we had to take a snap to document our first time at the gym + my sisters sunglasses messed up her filter and it was really funny

Saturday afternoon we went to my friends grad party and she had some of the best crawfish I’ve ever tasted + crawfish is something I just started liking so I can’t get enough of it

I have a lot of senior friends this year and I can’t believe they graduate Friday )):

I have been SO stressed out trying to keep up with school these last few weeks. It’s mostly my fault that I kept putting off doing my work just because I’m tired of it BUT I’m almost caught up and we have 4 days until summer :,) 

I’m taking a few college classes this summer which will be worth it because I’m only going to have 3 classes senior year so that’s AMAZING. 

I can’t believe junior year is practically over because I swear it felt like yesterday when I was walking into high school for the first time??

If you go to and purchase something be sure to use my discount code Sidney10  !!!!

I will have a new post up most likely this weekend about some new outfits so be on the look out! 

May 14th

Mother’s Day. A day for my mom. Your mom. All of them. Somebody special that takes care of you & loves you. 

For Mother’s Day we had some of my aunts, uncles and cousins come over. We had a breakfast and just sat around and visited. 

Once everyone left our house we headed to pick up my sister at the airport. My sister I mentioned her in my List of Loves Part 1 blog lives in Germany & she is coming to visit for a few weeks! (Super excited about that).

My mom wanted to have Mother’s Day dinner at Olive Garden so we went there and ate. When we walked in it was crazy packed but we decided to go ahead and wait. We started off sitting on a bench outside but if you live in Texas you know how the heat gets /: 

We moved inside just to stand when some seats at the bar area came open so of course we had to sit (we made sure it was allowed) and then they asked if we were ready to order (so we skipped the wait time and cut infront of people) lol 

This is me & my sister

I wanted a cute pic of the breadsticks but my mom ate a piece + my root beer.since I got a new phone I wanted to try out portrait mode again so here’s a pic of my mom & sisters drink. (She’s 23 so it’s legal)

my mom had asked my dad to pick a flower for her when we were leaving the restaurant which I thought was adorable 

I hope everyone has an amazing day!!


List of Loves Part 1

So this is where I post about all the things I’m really into at the moment. I honestly have no clue how long this list will be but maybe I’ll do this every few months instead of a monthly favorites it can be my list of loves. It sounds cool.

So let’s do this.

Journaling. For my Bullet Journal (click that to read my post about it) I got new washi tape and it’s super cute because it’s got plants & strawberrys & flowers. Cute right? I’m still working on my writing and drawing skills so hopefully my journal ends up looking better than it does now!

Plants. This one isn’t really a new discovery or anything, I just really love plants. I have 8 in my room and they’re so adorable + it’s fun to watch them grow. Most are succulents of some kind + little cacti that I LOVE.

Music. I could name a million songs but here’s a few that I want to share:

1. All My Friends – snakehips

2. 8teen – Khalid

3. Wait a Minute – willow smith

4. All 4 love – color me badd

5. Now or Never – Halsey

6. Passionfruit – drake

7. Secrets – The Weeknd

8. Burnin up – Jonas brothers (you can’t judge me on this one. I still jam to this so just accept it & keep reading thanks!!!)

9. Slow hands – Niall Horan 

10. All night – The vamps & matoma

Shoes. I recently bought a pair of grey ankle boots that are SO CUTE I love them so much. I haven’t found an outfit to wear them with + I don’t have a picture of them on my phone (&I I’m feeling too lazy to get them out of my closet) but I’m sure you’ll see them in one of my wardrobe posts so be on the look out!

Photos&Cameras. I LOVE PHOTOS. All kinds. Old & new. They say so much without saying anything at all & yes I know it sounds cheesy but it’s true. Being able to have phones & cameras where you can just snap a picture and have that memory forever is crazy cool. There’s so many things I love taking pictures of so I’m pretty sure I’m always the friend that wants to take a group picture. Remembering things is important especially as you grow up because you may not see those people every day. but always remember to not get too caught up capturing the moment and really take it all in & enjoy it.

Thrift Shopping. Shopping is fun (most of the time) there’s this place where I live that’s like thrift shopping but not really. It’s complicated to explain so I decided to just call it a thrift store because you get tons of clothes at cheap prices and you can find a little bit of everything! I’ve gotten a few things from this place and I love it! The jeans I wore in my May 3rd blog post are brand new with tags and all but I got them for $2. IF THATS NOT AMAZING WHAT IS. I actually plan on going thrifting with my sister when she comes home so maybe I’ll make a post about what we find!

Siblings. but really just a sibling. I have 1. 1 sister. 1 best friend. 1 partner in crime. 1 FaceTime buddy. 1 person that’s always there no matter what. My sister & I of course had the love/hate (mostly love though) relationship growing up because we’re 6 years apart. But then she moved to Germany (cool I know) & we didn’t get to see each other much. She comes to visit sometimes & is actually coming home Sunday! (Mother’s Day so it’s a great present for our mom!!) I’m so excited to see her because she’s my best friend & having a sibling that you love and can share anything with is amazing. Of course we’ll be taking a ton of pictures together so y’all will see plenty of her.

That’s all I have for this post + hopefully I add more to it each time so maybe this can be it’s own little series. What do y’all think?

Have a great weekend!!

Happy Times

I think being happy is something everyone struggles with at some point, and maybe some more than others. I know I do but lately I’ve been finding ways to make the sad days good. 

I want to be somebody that’s genuinely a happy person, all the time. Being happy is cool. Being happy is great. It’s the best thing for you. 

The small things like when my plants grow just a little or seeing my dog when I come home from school to the big things like a new season of my show on Netflix (priorities, am I right?) more like spending times with friends and family make my day 100x better. 

I used to complain about a lot of things which is normal for every teenager but I appreciate everything this world has to offer me and I intend to cherish every minute I have.

Let’s end this with a quote :

β€’ most folks are as happy as they make up their minds to be β€’

Enjoy your weekend πŸ™‚

Bullet Journal

I saw a video on YouTube about bullet journaling and thought it was something fun I could try. Of course I’m not the best at drawing and my handwriting isn’t anything special but it’s supposed to be whatever you want it to be!!

Here are some pages from my journal that don’t have personal info on them –

I’ll list some supplies I got below + they weren’t very expensive at all!

I got 2 pilot gel pins from Walmart just for regular writing!I’m pretty sure these are Pen+Gear fine point pens and I got these at Walmart 20 pack of Crayola SuperTips markers I got from CVS for $5 Washi Tape is from Walmart I think they were each like $3 but I’m not positive! 

They also have a lot of these products on amazon and different types of journals but for my first one I just decided to go with a plain lined one! 

I will definitely get more creative the more I do this but for now I like how it looks! I have a lot more pages decorated but they have personal information on them so I didn’t want to show that!

Check out some videos on YouTube about bullet journaling, it gives you a lot of amazing ideas! 


Try New Things

Recently I have been trying to find new things to do since I have more time on my hands. Usually my time was spent at dance practice and then of course homework because that’s what high school/college is (tons of work). 

I don’t dance anymore so I have a few more free hours in my day. At first I wasn’t sure how to spend them since I didn’t really have a hobby. I decided to try new things like the following –

I have become more interested in taking photographs of different kinds of elements.

I definitely have gotten WAY better at planning ahead for my homework & job. I mean I even bought a planner so that’s great right?

Spending more time outside has been something I really enjoy. I turn my phone off or leave it inside and I just sit on our back porch with a snack and enjoy what nature has to offer. 

Walking my dog and spending more time with him playing is something I love also because who doesn’t love dogs.

And last but not least, I’ve been trying to be a better person for myself because self appreciation is important and being happy is the key to a great life.

Maybe if y’all are like me and are trying new things then you can get a few ideas from this post. Or if you have a hobby you’d like to share please let me know!!

– happy April 1st!
