February Desk Tour ft. New Wall Decor!

February Desk Tour ft. New Wall Decor!

Hey there ❤ Happy Tuesday to you!! I am very happy to be able to share another desk tour post with you guys. 🙂 I’ve probably mentioned it before, haha, but these are by far my favorite kind of post to write! Taking the pictures for the tour, and then getting to talk about my little writing area, is always a lot of fun – and this time, I didn’t just redecorate the desk itself. I’ve redone the whole wall area, too!

Throughout the post, I’ve included non-sponsored links to the different products when a link was available. I’m not making any money, I just wanted to give you the chance to get these awesome pieces of decor for yourself!

I hope you enjoy this, and let me know in the comments below which part of my desk is your favorite! Now let’s take a look. ❤

Below is how it looks when I first walk up to it! The little fairy lights, new wall decor, and simple layout of what’s on the desk itself makes me really happy. I’ll show you around every area, so let’s check out the left side first.

Here is where I blog, watch videos, and many other various activities on my laptop! I first featured my Chromebook in the desk tour I did back in November, which you can check out here. 🙂

In this shot, you can also see my hair tie basket (yes, I have so many that I need a basket!!), which I got at Hobby Lobby. My cute little wall calendar is from Target, as are the adorable plant pictures! I made the tiny banner myself using scrapbook paper, I should share a tutorial sometime. ❤

Let’s look at the wall a bit more now!

I colored that aquatic mandala myself, and I just LOVE how it turned out! It was one of the many pages from a wonderful coloring book I got on Amazon for only a few dollars. They’re one-sided, printed on great quality paper, and the designs are fantastic quality! If you’re into coloring, I highly recommend that book.

Above the mandala, you can see a wooden sign of that wonderful verse from Philippians, and then my infamous tiny ‘Dream Big’ sign. I’m pretty sure it has ended up in every desk tour I’ve ever shared, haha!

Now let’s check out the signs to the right.

When I spotted this gorgeous print on Etsy a few weeks ago, I knew that I had to have it above my desk. Within minutes, I’d purchased it, and a few days later, I was able to frame it! I’ve always loved maps, and the fact that a quote by Robin Williams is on it, too – it was made for me, haha. I love it sooo much!

The other sign says ‘Grateful,’ and I’ve had it up at my desk for over a year now. 🙂

I’ve also had this cactus art at my desk for a year now, and I got it at Hobby Lobby!

Next, we have my writing utensils box. ❤

I haven’t had a chance to organize the inside yet, but I happily decorated the top with three new additions to my room! First, we have a tiny paper craft Minecraft ocelot, which is a game I love playing with my brothers. Those cats make really cute pets! Next to the paper cat, I put my new fake succulent, which is absolutely adorable. Beside that is my cactus plate, which my dad said looks like Larry the Cucumber with arms!! XD

The last thing on my desk are my notepad, and my new recipe box!

Over the past week or so, I’ve thoroughly enjoyed filling this beautiful tin box with awesome recipes my family and I have been enjoying for years. I don’t know what to write on the little card yet, haha, either my name or an ‘M.’ We’ll see!

Here’s how the box looks inside:

I found this box in the dollar section of Target, so definitely check your Target out if you’d like to get one, too!


Thank you so much for reading!! ❤ I hope you have a beautiful day!

Organizing My Priorities For 2018

Organizing My Priorities For 2018

Hey guys ❤ I hope that this Tuesday has gotten off to a beautiful start for you!

I am extremely happy to report that yesterday evening, my dad brought my mom and Isabella home! I can’t tell you what a blessing it is to have them here now – it made me so sad to not be able to see them. I’m so thankful they didn’t have to stay at the hospital any longer!

Health Update: My mom and Isabella are both doing very well. My mom’s recovering beautifully from the surgery, and we can also all tell that Isabella is happy to be home. ❤ She’s such a sweet baby!!!

Today’s post is going to be about, as you can see from the title, organizing my priorities for this year. While I do love taking things one day at a time, I would also love to have a basic, structured idea of where I should be spending my time. I know that would be a huge help to me!

This is going to be a thinking out loud type of post, so if you’re interested in following along to see how I’m planning to spend the last semester of my senior year, I’d like to invite you to come along! 🙂 ❤ I hope you enjoy.


My Priorities, Organized

This Year:

  1. Take care of my family.
  2. Finish high school.
  3. Make healthy choices.
  4. Save money.
  5. Continue to blog.
  6. Make important decisions.
  7. Continue my education.

This Month:

  1. Stay well.
  2. Read more of the Bible.
  3. Interact more with my siblings.
  4. Bake/Cook more.
  5. Redecorate my room.
  6. Listen to new music.
  7. Participate in a blog challenge.

This Week:

  1. Help my mom with housework.
  2. Make meal plan and grocery shop.
  3. Work on my schoolwork.
  4. Buy a frame for my new wall print.
  5. Shop for new room decor.
  6. Keep up with blogging.
  7. Read Hank and Jim.

I would do a list for today, as well,
but I’m honestly not doing much today, haha! ❤

So there you have it! These are the three awesome lists that I plan to refer back to throughout this week, month, and year, too. My family is my #1 priority right now, and then comes my schooling, my entrance into adulthood (haha), and then everything else. I am so thankful for and blessed by all that the Lord has given me, and I don’t want to take any of it for granted for one second. ❤

Thank you so much for reading!

Bullet Point My Day – January 2018

Bullet Point My Day – January 2018

Hey guys, and happy Saturday to you! ❤ I hope that your weekend is going well. 🙂 Shortly after I had breakfast this morning, I had a fun idea for today’s blog post, which is why I am here sharing it now!

Over the course of the whole day, I kept track of everything I did on the bullet list shared below. This means that from the point I woke up, all the way down to when I went to bed (which I will do right after publishing this!), you get a peek into what my life is like on relaxing weekends at home! I had a lot of fun keeping track of today, and I’m looking forward to doing it again at some point.

While there will definitely be days in my future with more going on than there was today, it was nice to capture what relaxed days are like at this time in my life. Getting a few things done and hanging out with my family was the eventual focus of today, and I absolutely loved it. It was quite relaxed, and we were all happy.

I often find myself wishing that my life was more full, providing me and my family with more activities to do and places to go … but man – I wouldn’t trade beautiful days such as this for the world. ❤

Being thankful for the present is something I desire to be mindful of, every single moment.

While it’s nice to have places to go and things to see, weekends like this are a huge blessing, too. (:

Introduction aside, I’ll be turning in for the night here shortly. Whatever time of day it is where you are, I pray that you’re doing well, and that you enjoy this post! ❤ Happy reading!
