Walking in a Winter Wonderland

Jadelynn Brooke released these adorable Pom Pom hoodies a couple months ago and I have been loving them! I was super excited to see one in my last rep box for the fall 2017 semester! While I was traveling for the holidays I wore it so much and it is seriously so so comfy! I am obsessed with it! PLUS it comes in two different colors! I am wearing it in blue but it also comes in grey as well!

My Weekend Routine

I have been wanting to do more lifestyle posts on the blog so today I thought it would be perfect timing to share my Weekend Routine. I have shared some of my “tips” on my Instagram story before and you all gave me great feedback so I thought I would compile them all into a blog post in case your missed my Instagram stories.

Saturday:

I always take advantage of the weekends to get ahead on school work and blog content so I always write up a long to do list once I get done with classes on Friday or when I wake up on Saturday morning. This list will consist of everything from school work, what I need to work on for the blog, and any cleaning that needs to get done.

I always try to knock out all of the blog photos on Saturday and as much homework as I can. I find that getting the bulk of my work done on Saturday that way I have more time on Sunday to just relax. I will plan all my outfits that I need to shoot for the blog and have them ready to go for the photo shoot. Once I get back home I will upload all the photos, edit them and pick out which ones I want to post on Instagram and then organize all of the others ones for blog posts. I will also start getting all my assignments done for school.

Once all my work for the day is done I will typically curl up on the coach with my laptop, watch something on TV with my family and I try to get some more blog work done but I always find myself scrolling through Pinterest. I also like to use this time to work on any graphics for the blog or Instagram Stories for the upcoming week. I always like to leave the evening open to just relax.

Sunday: 

I try to start Sunday with a slow start since I know the week ahead is going to be busy. I like to spend Sunday’s doing majority of my studying and getting my room cleaned and organized for the week.

One of the things I do every Sunday that really helps me stay organized is to go through all of my syllabi and fill everything for the week into my planner. This helps me to visualize everything going on in the week and prevents any surprise quizzes or papers from popping up during the week. I also like to do the bulk of my studying on Sundays as well.

Something else that really helps me is to plan out what I want to wear throughout the week. I normally write everything down in the “Notes” section in my phone and I will refer back to it during the week!

IMG_9394

Once I finish everything that I wanted to get done I will spend some time reading or just having some me time. I like to pain my nails, catch up on my YouTube subscriptions and then I always make sure to get to bed early. Sunday is the start to each week so I always try to start it out being productive but also relaxing as much as I can.

Thank you so much for reading today! As always if you have any post requests please let me know!

My New Favorite Toy

This year for Christmas I received the HP Sprocket printer and I have had so much fun playing with it so far! I thought it would be fun to share with all of you today since so many of you have requested DIY room decor posts! This printer can print out so many cute photos that you can use to spruce up your room!

IMG_9218IMG_9210IMG_9211img_9213.jpg

I have put a lot of my photos on my memo board from My Pink and Green Garden and on my cork board on my desk! I have also seen a bunch of people on Instagram put little photos like this in their planners! The options are endless!

Thank you so much for reading today! I hope you enjoyed this post! If you have any post requests please let me know!

My Favorite Sweatshirt!

This Christmas I received one of the monogram lace up tunic from Marley Lilly and this is by far my new favorite article of clothing! I have a feeling I will be wearing it nonstop this winter!

IMG_0368IMG_0402IMG_0373IMG_0377IMG_0414IMG_0385IMG_0423IMG_0433

I wore my sweatshirt with my KJP Pearl Knot Bracelet and my camp socks from J.Crew! I am not sure where my duck boots are from unfortunately because they were a gift but you can find monogram duck boots at Marley Lilly and on Etsy! This sweatshirt is so warm which makes it perfect for lazy days during the winter!

Thank you so much for reading this post! I hope you enjoyed it! As always if you have any post requests please let me know!

UPDATED: Bible Journaling Basics

Before I start this post I wanted to say that yes, I have some very similar posts to this one but I felt that it was time I updated them so here we are! Obviously there is no right or wrong way to Bible Journal which is why I feel like these posts are so hard to right. But you keep requesting them so I thought I would try to just show you all what I like to do and be a little more detailed in the post than I have been in my older posts! Hope these tips help you!

IMG_9279.JPG

I love using PaperMate Flair pens in my bible because they are super bright and fun PLUS they typically don’t bleed through the thin pages. As long as you aren’t coloring in any big shapes and you are just writing or doing simple illustrations with them you will be golden! However, I do like to put a mat underneath my page just in case so I don’t ruin the pages behind the one I am working on.

I also recommend having a thin pen that won’t bleed through the pages. I use one all the time to outline words or to write in smaller words.

I haven’t used water colors too much in my Bible but I have seen a bunch of people’s entries that have used them and they always come out so cool!

IMG_9287.JPG

I can not recommend starting with pencil enough! I am a perfectionists and especially in my Bible, I don’t want to mess up a page because I can’t really start over. I trace what ever I want to do in pencil first that way I prevent making tons of mistakes. By using pencil first it also allows you to change positioning, illustrations, etc. because you can actually see what it will look like! There have been so many times I draw something out but then just don’t like the format so it is so nice to have the option of just erasing everything and starting over!

IMG_9292.JPG

One of the most asked questions I get is how I pick what verses I want to journal. Personally, I think this will change for everyone. For me when I see a verse that really sticks out to me I will always write it down that way the next time I get my Bible out I have a list of potential verses to journal that stood out to me. But if you are not sure what to journal but you really want to you can always go onto Pinterest and find some! Some Instagramers and Bloggers actually have created some “plans” that you could follow. These plans just list out days (typically for a whole month) and provide you with a new verse every day.

IMG_9277

I also recommend dating all your entries! It is fun to look back on older entries and I always love being able to see the date that I created it!

Drawing a Banner:

I get questions ALL the time on how I draw banners in my entries so I thought I would share how I do it! I also shared a little diagram in one of my other Bible Journaling posts but I thought I would share it again!

IMG_9267

First: Draw two lines to be the base of your banner. I always like to have mine free handed but you could also do a standard rectangular banner!

IMG_9270

Next: Connect your lines as shown in this picture!

IMG_9272.JPG

Last: Create your banner! (I am not really sure how to type this step into words so hopefully the picture helps!)

IMG_9286.JPG

The fun part is to use different designs, patterns, and colors!

I really love Bible journaling and I hope this post was helpful to you because I get requests for it all the time! If I didn’t answer one of your questions please let me know! As always if you have any post requests please let me know!

More About Me!

Back in December I reached out to all of my Instagram followers to ask me questions for a blog post to get to know a little bit more about me and I had so many of you send me great questions! Thank you! I will answer as many as I can in this post but if you have any others let me know!

IMG_0377

  1. What are your plans after high school? I am a current senior in high school and I am currently in the process of deciding where I am going to college next fall. I haven’t decided where I will be going in the fall but as soon as I do I will definitely let you guys know! I am planning on majoring in Elementary Education though and I am very excited for college!
  2. Any tips on starting a preppy/fashion Instagram and not being ashamed of it? When I started my Instagram no one who I know personally knew about it and I was terrified of them finding out. Over time I started to tell some of my close friends and family members about it and now there is a hand full of friends following along but that is it. I think that as I started to fall in love with blogging I started to get less “ashamed of it”. Honestly, if blogging is something you really want to do just start it! If your friends find out I guarantee you that they will be supportive of it and if they aren’t then they aren’t your real friends.
  3. Do a lot of people know about your blog? If, so what do they think about it? Like I mentioned earlier only a hand full of close family and friends know about it but at this point I am not hiding it as much as I used to. Everyone who knows about it is so supportive which is so nice! They love helping me out if I need it which I really appreciate! Having family and friends who supports what you want to do is so nice and it makes it so much more fun! But like I mentioned before some people might not be supper supportive. My biggest tip for this is to ignore it. I always look at my blog like this, some people love dance so they go to practices and have performances and no one really thinks anything of it. But when someone has a blog it can seem different, since it is! But my blog is my hobby just as someone who likes to dance has theirs. If anyone isn’t supportive just ignore it and know that you are doing something that makes you happy and you don’t need anyone’s approval for it.
  4. How do you keep coming up with original and creative content? This can be very hard at times because creators block is a real thing! What I like to do is plan ahead that way if one week I just do not know what I want to post on the blog I do not have to skip a post since one is already scheduled. I also love Pinterest! I use it all the time for outfit inspiration which definitely helps when I am trying to plan blog posts! I also keep a list in the notes section on my phone of ideas for when ever I am just not sure what to post!
  5. Why did you start blogging? I started my Instagram over a year ago (It honestly still feels like yesterday though!) because I really enjoyed taking photos of my outfits but did not want to post them on my personal social media because lets be honest, my friends don’t really care. I also was interested in trying out some brand rep opportunities and wanted those posts to be on a separate account so @MollyPreps was created! A couple months after creating the Instagram I started my blog because I just had so many post ideas that were more of blog content instead of Instagram content. I am so happy I decided to start it though because it has been so much fun and I have made such amazing friends from this experience!
  6. What do you wear to school on a regular day? This question was asked A LOT so I figured I should probably answer it! For me, it changes pretty much everyday since my schedule this year is not your traditional high school schedule. Monday, Wednesday, and Friday I only have one class and then I come home for the rest of the day so I rarely get dressed up. I am typically in Jadelynn Brooke Bow Back Leggings and a cute T-Shirt but there are some days when I dress up. It all really depends on my mood. I can say that my outfits shared on my blog and Instagram are pretty accurate to what I wear in “real life”.
  7. Who is your style icon? I really love how Sarah (@sarahkjp) and Carly (@Carly) dress and their blogs are some of my favorites! Whenever I don’t know what to wear I just type in the season and then their name into my Pinterest and use them as inspiration! I also really love Abby’s (@Belleoftheball45) style! If you aren’t already following these three I definitely recommend it!

I hope you enjoyed learning a little bit more about me in this post! I have never done a post like this before but it was very fun to write so if you would like to see more in the future let me know!

Thank you so much for reading today! As always if you have any post requests please let me know!

Chilly Day Outfit Inspiration

I have received so many requests to share outfits that are perfect for cold days. I was a little hesitant to do this post just because I do not live in a climate where it snows (I was on vacation when I took these photos) but I decided it would still be fun to put an outfit together for you! I have been loving this outfit for cold days because it does keep you super warm and it is super cute as well!
