Sunday Snippet: Bible Journaling

Picture1Hello Everyone! Welcome back to another Sunday Snippet Blog post! I have received so many requests to do another Bible Journaling blog post and I thought it would be fun because I have thought of some more tips to share with you all!

My first tip is that there are no rules when it comes to journaling in your Bible and that is the best part! You can use paint, pens, markers, pencils, anything and do what ever you want! Do not be intimidated by all of the images on Pinterest of perfectly done entries because no one’s Bible is going to turn out perfect! That is the beauty of it!

My Second tip is a new favorite type of pen I found! The PaperMate flair pens are PERFECT for Bible Journaling because they don’t bleed through the pages plus they come in tons of different colors which makes it super fun! 44357

My last tip for today is to get creative with how you write out the words on your spread! One of my favorite things things to do is draw banners and write my words inside of banners! I am not artistic at all and when I first saw the banners I didn’t think I would be able to draw one for the life of me BUT they are so easy so I thought I would quickly share how I draw them! I found this image online and it breaks it down step by step! Hopefully this will help you!d03ef2_b03f0874c03e4f7aa7c709088f466fc1-mv2_d_1438_1990_s_2

I hope these tips help you! Remember to not get intimidated by all the crazy entries you see online! If you have any questions that I didn’t answer please let me know!

Thank you so much for reading! blue end

Road Trip Essentials

Hello Everyone!

I am so excited for this blog post! My family goes on lots of road trips to go visit family! I have put together some of my personal essentials that I always bring with me on road trips!

  1. I like using a backpack or tote bag when I go on a road trip because of how compact they are but still keeps all my stuff organized. This one is from Jadelynn Brooke and I have been loving it! Unfortunately I do not think they are currently available because they were donated to Hurricane Harvey Victims! I use it all the time and the best part is there are a lot of interior pockets to keep everything organized.
  2. I always bring a sweatshirt or pullover with me when I travel. This pullover is from 28 PaperClips is my new favorite! It is super cute and it is super comfortable! It fits perfectly! The link to the one I have is here!
  3. Water bottles are a must for traveling! I have one from Lilly Curls Designs that I love and use it all the time!
  4. I try to always remember socks when I travel because it is so nice to have in the car and in hotels. These socks from Southern Girl Prep are so fun and cute!
  5. Headphones are a MUST for me! I love listening to music and watching movies in the car. I have the standard apple ear buds that come with your iPhone but these Marley Lilly ones are just more fun! Plus they are blue tooth so you don’t have to worry about annoying cords!

I hope you enjoyed this blog post! As always if you have any requests please contact me!

I am so excited about this blog post because I am sharing one of my favorite fall outfits! And it is a collaboration with Rebecca from Tailored To Rebecca on Instagram! She MADE this scarf and has included instructions for all of you so you can create one of your own! Make sure you read the entire blog post to find the DIY Instructions! If you are not already following Rebecca I totally recommend it because she is so creative!! I always love seeing what she makes! You can find her Instagram here!

Outfit Details:

I paired this blanket scarf with a simple pair of Old Navy Skinny Jeans and a J.Crew white long sleeve shirt. I also wore a Mint Green J.Crew Vest and my monogram duck boots. These were a Christmas gift so I am not sure where they are from but here is a similar pair.

I like wearing my blanket scarves by folding them into a triangle shape and then wrapping it around my neck.

Here is an image I found online for how I like to tie my blanket scarves!

Post written by Rebecca Wallace from Tailored to Rebecca!

Hi everyone! I’m Rebecca from @tailoredtorebecca on Instagram! I’ve worked with Molly on a few projects over the last year and I am so excited to do this guest post on her blog!

My favorite fall trend this year is the blanket scarf! Like, you’re literally wearing a blanket, does it get any better than that?! One of the best things about blanket scarves is that are super easy to DIY! Today I’m going to walk you through step by step to make your own blanket scarf for under $10!
First you need to buy your fabric! My favorite fabric store is JoAnn fabrics, they seem to have the best selection in my area, but you can also try Hobby Lobby or a local fabric shop! If you’re not familiar with the layout of your fabric store, you can ask an associate to show you where they have plaid flannel!

So this is the only hard part, deciding which print to buy!! Haha! Once you decide on a color, take a look at the label on the end of the bolt, you will see a width measurement in inches, it will probably be around 40″-44″, mine was 41″.
1.jpg
Take that entire bolt of fabric up to the cutting table, and to get a square blanket scarf, you can just ask them to cut the same number of inches as the width, so I asked them to cut me 41″. If they don’t cut in inches, ask for 1-1/4 yards.
3.jpg
When you get home lay your fabric out flat, and grab a pair of sharp scissors. You will notice the edges of where your fabric was cut is probably not even with the lines of the plaid. Find a line in the plaid that goes all the way top to bottom on one side, and cut the extra fabric off right along that line. Repeat on all 4 sides.
Once all 4 sides are even, you can start fraying the edges! You can use a pin (or even an earring!) to start pulling a couple threads at a time away from the corner.
You will want to pull these at about a 45 degree angle, if you pull them straight out they can get tangled. Keep pulling 2-3 threads at a time until the frayed part is as long as you want it!
5.jpg
I made mine about 1/2″, if I went much longer than that it might start to tangle if I put it in the washing machine.

I like to style mine by folding it in half to form a giant triangle, then tying the two small ends behind my neck!

 If you make your own I’d love to see how you style it! Make sure to tag me @tailoredtorebecca!
Thank you so much to Rebecca for doing this guest post on my blog!! I am so excited about it and I hope all of you are too!

Sunday Snippet

Hello Everyone!

I am so excited to announce that I am starting a third post each week on the blog! I have thought about this for a while and always thought it would just stress me out but I have had SO many ideas for “extra” blog posts recently and you guys all have said that you want more posts about my day to day life so I decided to start “Sunday Snippet” which is where I will share some of my favorite things, some week in my life posts and some blog posts about my faith, which has been VERY requested!! Since I am a senior in high school and my life is about to change pretty dramatically I thought it would be the perfect time to start this type of series on the blog! I will say that I am not guaranteeing a Sunday post every week like I do a Monday and Friday post just because life happens BUT I will try my best! If you have ANY requests for what you want to see PLEASE let me know!! I can’t wait to hear your opinions on this new series!

Picture1For today’s post I am going to be sharing three items that I have recently purchased that I am super excited to start using!

Capture

First up, I have been on the hunt for the perfect mascara for months now and have yet to find it. I have heard so many good things about this one from L’Oreal so I am really looking forward to trying it out! I will definitely keep you updated on whether or not I like it!

Next, I am so excited to finally say I decided on what type of planner I want to use next year and I decided on this one from Micheal’s! It is from the Recollections collection and I can not wait for January to start using it! If you want more planner type posts definitely let me know because I am willing to do them for you!

Last but not least are these adorable earrings from Target! I think you will be seeing them a lot on the blog and on my Instagram because I am obsessed with them! I bought the all black ones but could not find the picture of Target’s website so the blue will have to do! These are definitely out of my comfort zone but I can’t wait to start wearing them!

Thank you so much for reading! I hope you are excited about this new blog series! I would love your input!

Hope you all have a fantastic week!

Day in My Life

Hello Everyone!

I am so excited about this post! It is a little bit different than my normal posts but I thought it would be fun to do a more lifestyle post and share a day in my life. Obviously not everyday looks exactly like this but you get the idea!

I typically wake up around 7:30 every morning and get ready first. Not going to lie, I don’t do anything special because I like to get as much sleep as possible in the mornings.

4

I normally try to pick out my outfit for each day the night before. I am dying to get my fall clothes out and pack my summer stuff away but the weather is just not cooperating.

1

I am a dual enrollment student at a local college this year so my schedule is not your typically high school schedule. I go to my High School for an hour each morning and then head to a local college campus for classes on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

8

After class I head over to the library and get some homework done before going back home.

11

Once I get home from school I will normally eat dinner and then I will finish up my homework.

 

7

I don’t work on Blog/Instagram stuff everyday but some nights when I do not have a lot of homework I will sit down and draft out a post, edit photos, or work on creating Instagram story images for the upcoming week.

6

After I am done with all my work for the day I will head to bed!

Thank you so much for reading today! I hope you enjoyed this post! Let me know if you liked it and if you have any other post requests!
