Life Lately Vol. 27

Happy Friday, friends! We've finally made it to the weekend, but this weekend is even better because it's Labor Day weekend, which means no school for me on Monday! Labor Day weekend is always bittersweet to me, because it symbolizes the end of summer, which is always sad, but it gets me excited for all things fall & cooler weather & pumpkin spice everything. Although school has been going on, these past few weeks have gone by in the blink of an eye and have been a lot of fun, despite the copious amounts of homework I've been assigned. (I honestly should be studying for my math quiz right now, but writing blog posts is wayyy more fun...)

Also, can we talk about the fact that it's already September (and only eight days until my birthday!)? This year has gone by so fast!

If you're new here, my Life Lately posts are basically really fun posts where I sit down and chat with y'all about what's been going on in my life + what I've been up to. They're some of my favorite posts to write, so I really hope y'all like reading them as well. Enjoy!


Starting off with the most important thing first... if you've been paying any attention to anything lately, you've probably heard about all of the damage that Hurricane Harvey has done. I just wanted to briefly talk about the incredible act of generosity that the girls at Jadelynn Brooke are doing! For $30, you can click here to buy a backpack filled with school supplies. This backpack will go to a child in the Houston area who no longer has school supplies thanks to flooding. It's a great way to help the Harvey victims and will definitely make someone's day!



On a lighter note, my little sister celebrated her sixth birthday last weekend, and while I can't believe she's already that old (where does the time go?) I had a lot of fun celebrating her birthday. We went to the American Girl store for shopping and lunch, and it was honestly so fun and nostalgic because I hadn't been there in at least eight years. They were celebrating the release of a new Hawaiian doll, so we got to see some hula dancers perform and taste some delicious cupcakes. We had lunch in their bistro, and I was actually surprised at how good the food was. I got pretzel poppers for an appetizer, and they were to die for! For lunch, I got a salad with chicken and apricots, and while it wasn't the best, the ice cream sundae I had for dessert certainly was!

I also made this cookie cake for her later that night, and she said she preferred it to the Whole Foods cake that she had at her birthday party, so that made me feel pretty good :)

Other than that, I'm not going to lie, school has pretty much been all that I've done. My teachers have assigned a lot of homework, and I actually had three quizzes this week, so I've definitely spent a lot of time studying. I am also on my school's soccer team, so we've been practicing every morning which has been a lot of fun! I also joined my school's Student Council, which I'm excited for too.

I'm going to make a full YouTube video where I just sit down and talk about my first day of school experience, since some of y'all requested that, but I just wanted to give y'all a brief update on school! :)

I'm going to go finish my homework now... have a great Labor Day weekend!
