What I Wore to Senior Portraits 

Yay for senior year! Yesterday I took my senior pictures! If you want to see them you can follow my VSCO! I had three outfits, one was my dance uniform and the other two was outfits I put together. I am going to be sharing my outfits with you guys!

So my whole plan was something off the shoulder, but in the little time I had, I could not find anything out the shoulder that I wanted. So I stopped by a local boutique and picked up a sleeveless romper in a coral color. The boutique I got it from does not have a website, but I found the exact same one from an online store that I will have linked below. I wore the same shoes with both of my outfits and they came from Just Fab!

For my second outfit, I had some white pants already in my closet. I am not sure where they are from but I will try to find a similar one. My shirt, you will not believe this, is from Walmart! It is so cute and comfortable and was only $14.

What You Really Need for Freshman Year of High School

Cheers to high school! Yep, I’ve been there and done that! I can finally share my freshman year experience with others. But, that’s not what this is about! I remember back in middle school the school provided a supply sheet for us. In high school, they do not! Looks like you are on your own. But trust me, you do not need all that wonky stuff.

Color Pencils and Crayons

You do not need a bunch of color pencils and crayons. You will probably color once or twice each year. I personally, never bought color pencils for high school, all of my teachers usually provide pencils to the class. If you do get some, just get one pack, that’s all you’ll need.


Some classes require folders. I say just wait until you get your syllabus and get folders if you need them. Do not go out and spend your money on them unless you want to. 


I recommend getting mechanical pencils and extra lead because if you get wood pencils they would break and sometimes will not sharpen. So just trying to be on the safe side.


This is pretty self explanatory. You know you will need paper so get a few packs. At Walmart, one pack of paper is probably 80 cents!

Flash drive

At my school, we have online classes that we can take, so because of that I always get a flash drive. It’s helpful and you can get the ones that clip on to your keys.


You WILL need a calculator. Especially if you take a hard math class. With this, you will not have to use the teacher’s calculator.

Money, money, money

Lastly, you will need money. Most schools have vending machines that you can get snacks and drinks from. So it’s good to have at least $3.

So ladies and gents, that’s all I have for today! If you guys have any other “must need school supplies” that you want the fellow freshmans to know, comment them down below!

How I Edit my Instagram Photos

Welcome back! So I post updates and stuff on my Instagram. Therefore, I edit my picture to match my new feed. Today, I am going to show you how I edit my blog Instagram pictures!

So today we are going to edit this picture! In case you didn’t know, I am a rep for Southern Girl Prep. So, if you use my code (thecaffeineway15off) and dm me proof that you did, I will send you two stickers!

This will be the end results! 

I edit all my pictures with VSCO. I also take my pictures in the square form, just because it looks better.

Open your picture to VSCO

First thing I do is open my picture. Then I go all the way down to C1. I will pull that filter to 8.0. 

Let’s start editing

Now it gets to the editing part. You must do the Exposure and drag it up to 1.0. The Contrast is next. I will drag it down to -4.0.

We only have two more steps! Yay! After you contrast you picture, go all the way down until you see “Highlights”, “Shadows”, “Temperatures”. Next you will tap on Temperatures. Bring your cursor all the way to 2.0. Your last step is Highlights, which will go to 7.0.

All you have to do now is save! This filter is very easy! I actually go it from a filter account on Instagram a few months ago, but unfortunately I forgot the account! But, you can always add your own twist to it like I did! 

BTS Supply Haul + Lilly Pulitzer DIY

Welcome back! So school starts less than a week from now and I have collected all my school supplies. I have also diy my binders and notebooks. Keep reading if you want to see what I got and see what I diy.

The first I picked up some highlighters, post it notes and pens. I love making my notes all colorful and what not. So I highlight A LOT and stick a note on almost every single page.

Next I got three packs of paper because I only picked up three binders this year. By the way, most of this stuff came from Walmart (because I am super cheap). Then, I found this cute notebook from the Stationary section it just has “Notebook” at the top and the pages are just so adorable. For a more organization this year, I tried out a planner! I ordered my Day Designer from Amazon. I did a whole post about it and I will have it here.

To complete my writing utensils, I got a pack of mechanical pencils because who doesn’t like mechanical pencils. I also got a pack of lead because I absolutely hate asking people for lead! I rather get ASKED for lead!

Lilly Pulitzer DIY

So for the Lilly DIY, I made these binder sheets. I got a color notebook and binder for each class. For instance, blue is math, pink is chemistry and purple is English. 

Thanks for reading! If you guys have any questions about the binder sheets leave them down below! Or if you want me to make you some just dm me on Instagram.

How to get Free Stickers

What a nice day to learn how to receive your free sticker! I think we should start with the easy ways and work our way to the hard ways!

Use my codes

You may use any of my codes on my Discount Code page. If you send me proof on instagram, I will send you stickers and a thank you letter!

Okay let’s get to the hard ways!

Sticker Applications

Some companies have you sign up for free stickers. For instance, I typed in my google search bar Lauren James Stickers and tapped on the first one.

First I had to fill out this easy form. Most companies have you wait 4-10 business days. But, it will be at your house in no time. Here’s some other companies that require you to fill out a form.

Jadelynn Brooke

Simply Southern Tees


Southern Tide


The next companies will be companies that require you to send them an email. So you will say something like, Hello. My name is _____________. I absolutely love your stickers and was wondering if you can send me one! I will post all about it on my instagram/blog and will put it on my ___________. Can you send it to this address? Then you will type your address.



Kendra Scott 

Other companies make you send in a SASE, Self Address and Stamped Envelope. Down below I have the companies that require it.

Vineyard Vines

Half Moon Outfitters

I loved how nice the companies were. I am so happy I started my sticker collection and can not wait to see yours!
