‘Tis the season for vlogmas! If you didn’t know already, vlogmas occurs from December 1st to December 25th and basically the only rule is to vlog each day. Aaaand guess who will be participating? This girl. There’s a lot of creative freedom that comes with vlogmas which is what makes it so great, but sometimes that can also be a reason for people not to participate. So I decided to come up with some fun video ideas you can use during vlogmas! I’ll probably be using them too, although probably not in this order. I started making YouTube videos over the summer because I wanted a new way to connect with my readers (that’s you). They’re a lot of fun and a lot different than blogging but in a good way. If you’re a blogger thinking about venturing into the YouTube world, vlogmas is a fun reason to start. All you really need is your phone and a YouTube channel although a video editing program helps a lot as well (I just use iMovie that came on my Macbook). Here are a few ideas to get you into the vlogmas spirit! Be sure to subscribe to my channel so you don’t… View Post

It’s no secret that fall is my favorite season and I’m so sad it’s almost over! The crisp fall air, the blanket scarves, changing leaves, and hayrides are among my favorite parts. There are so many fall trends that I’m obsessing over, I feel like each year I’m buying tons of new fall clothes just because I love the colors so much (whoops). There’s just something about the changing leaves and feeling like you can just start fresh that I absolutely love.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Now that the turkey has been carved, parades have been watched, and prayers have been said, I’m ready to share my final installment of Thankful Thursday. I really enjoyed reflecting on what I’m thankful for and sharing those things with all of you. It made me so happy to see some of you were inspired by my post to write your own! Today’s Thankful Thursday is a link up so be sure to link any and all of your Thankful Thursday posts below. Check out what everyone else is thankful for and leave some comments for each other! I will definitely be making these posts a Thanksgiving tradition so be sure to join me again next year I want to preface this by saying that I’m not ranking these things in order of importance. I also know that I have a LOT to be thankful for and I can’t possibly list everything in just 4 blog posts. I have a great life; I am truly blessed and I know it. Now, let’s get started with this week’s Thankful Thursday! 1. A full plate and full belly 2. Evenings with family 3. Comfy sweaters 4. After Thanksgiving filled noodles… View Post

Today’s post comes from a discussion I had last night with Abigail, Caitlyn, and Lauren during the Blogger Roundtable. If you haven’t heard of the Blogger Roundtable, basically Abigail invites a bunch of bloggers to participate in a live Google Hangout and we talk about all things blogging and life related and anyone can tune in to see what we’re chatting about! You can catch the replay here. During last night’s chat, Lauren asked how we stayed motivated while on long breaks from school. I knew exactly what she was talking about and I felt like the lack of motivation during the holidays is totally normal. When you don’t have class to worry about, why bother doing anything else? But this season is a really important one for bloggers so it’s imperative that we stay on top of everything in order to finish all of the posts we want to get done! I’m sharing my tips on how I stay motivated to blog (or do anything, really!) when I’m on a break from school.
