2018 Christmas Wishlist / Teen Gift Guide

I did a Christmas wish list last year which I thought was fun and I also find these kinds of wishlist posts really helpful when I'm getting gifts for people. Let's get started!

*some of the links in this post are affiliate links which means I will make a small commision if you buy anything through them with no extra cost to you

I've been wanting a polaroid camera for a while cause they just seem so cool! I want to get cute photos of friends and things and be able to hang them up on my wall. :)

A lot of my friends have these small speakers that they bring places and I always think it's the coolest thing in the entire world. We have a Sonos speaker at my house which works really well but you can't really bring it outside or anything.

People always have those van slip ons and I always think they're so cute!! I know it's kind of basic but it's fine haha. I would also love a pair of there mickey mouse shoes specifically this one, this one, or this one. 

4. Subscription Box

There are so many fun subscription boxes! It sounds so fun to receive a box full of surprise goodies every month. I've seen so many on Instagram and ahhhh they all look adorable. This would be such a good gift. I would probably either want a book/food/fashion one. 

Rompers and jumpers are just the cutest thing to me! I have one pink one (which you've probably seen on my Instagram) and it always makes me feel cute when I put it on. 

6. Camera/New Computer

These are both bigger presents and they're kind of similar so I'm putting them together. I've been wanting both of these for a whilllllle and it would make me soooo happy if I was able to get either of these things. :)

I have a couple of jackets that I actually like now (well more like two) but you can never have to many cute jackets. I mean right?!

I am suchhhhhh a sucker for soft things that I can touch so I would absolutely love one of these blankets. They're so cute and also just amazing??

I really like harry potter but I have nothing from it! No shirt, no socks, no nothing. There are soooooo many adorable stuff that is harry potter themed it's actually crazy.  

I've been wanting pins for forever!! I can put them on my lanyard for school and next year I can put them on my backpack. I just think they make everything super cute. 

These are also a bit on the expensive side but it's just one of the cutest ways to decorate a room ever! There are so many different signs that say and look like different things and I love it. 

I've decided you can never get enough chokers, You just can't. They're so versatile and so cute! Layered ones are my fave.

I'm always asking for earrings and I seem to lose them just as fast as I get them. I think I have a problem haha. Earrings are one of those accessories though that can totally lift my mood.  I would especially love an ear cuff. They just look so cool!!

Whenever I see the fairy lights in movies or online, they always look like the cutest thing ever. I've been wanting these for a while and I think it would be super cute in my new room. :)

I've been wanting combat boot ever since mine totally broke. Dr. Martens would be actually amazing! I've had two pairs of combat boots in the past and they make me feel really confident. 

I absolutely love Jessie Peage! She just released some merch with hot topic that I would love to be able to get. :) I would love this shirt or one of her pins. 

Cavetown is one of my favorite artists ever (I'm going to see him in February!!!!!!) and I would love some of his stuff. He has this little lemon icon and ahhh it's so cute. I would love the socks, this, this, or this.

I've been wanting this shirt since I saw it the first time! It's super cute and supports a message and I can also never have too many cute t-shirts. 

I always see these things like at friends houses and online and ahhhhh they seem the cutest ever. You can change what they say and they can have cute reminders and it's a fun accessory. 

Recently my popsocket one hundred percent broke. Like it just came apart. I was extremely not happy. I use my popsocket like a lotttttttttttttttttttt. It broke at just the right time though and now I'm just asking everyone to get me one haha. 

I'm going to end this here! If you want more gift ideas feel free to refer to my birthday wishlist or this post where I list 8 super cute and cheap gift ideas. 

What is something on your wishlist? Do you celebrate Christmas?

Weekend In New Orleans | Photo Diary

I got to go to New Orleans a bit ago and I had soooooo much fun! This post would have been up earlier but I went on my birthday aka october so I didn't have time to work on this cause I had to work on all of those collab posts for last month. :) Now though I do have timmmmme. Get reading for a bunch of pictures and everything we did!

I also did a vlog of the trip so make sure to check that out! If you aren't already subscribed to my channel it would make me super happy if you could do that as well! 

One the way we stopped at the rest area on the border and it's so nice! They also had this cool star so I had to snap a little pic. :)

The first thing we did when we got there after checking in the hotel was go to the famous Cafe De Monde. It was my first time trying a beignet and I was definitely not disappointed! 

The view from our hotel! It was gorgeous and it was so cool to look over the city. 


The first thing we did on our first full day was go to the world war two museum and y'all. This museum IS AMAZING. I loved it so so so so muchhhhh. I always love museums but this was the best one I had ever been to. Basically when you walk in you are assigned a dog tag and a real life person who went through world war two. Then as you walk through the museum there are little stations and you can scan your card and it tells you what your person was doing during the battle. They had such cool videos and the decorations and just ahhhhhh I could not recommend it enough. 

Around lunch time we got hungry and decided we had to go get something to eat. Note the museum does take about 6/7 hours to really go through it. For lunch we went to Cochon Burger and everything was really good! I had a sandwich and some mac and cheese which were extremely excellent. Plus the place itself was quite cute!! They had little star wars figures and indiana jones and just pretty much every geeky thing you could think of. In the entrance they had this table where they basically made a model of the store and put a bunch of characters from different movies in it and it was kind of the best thing ever. 

There was like at least four buildings and one of them was this hanger with just a bunch of airplanes! They looked so cool! 

Once we were done with the museum we went to preservation hall which is this crazy famous place in new orleans! They had this band playing jazz and they were really good! 

For dinner we went to Acme Oyster House and got these absolutelly amazingggggggggggg oysters!! They were the chargrilled oysters and they had cheese and butter on top and just oh my gosh. Those things were amazing. 

The next day we went on a little walk along the river. 

And went shopping! My sis got a couple of things there that I included in my birthday haul video if you want to check that out. :) 

After lunch (at some place which I very much forgot) we went to this amazing cemetery! It was so cool to look at everything. Because new orleans is so far down all of the graves are above ground and it was really cool to see all of these super old graves. 

Doesn't this look so cool?? There were so many cute shops that we stopped in. :)

And then it was time to go home! 

It was a really fun trip and I'm so happy we got to go!! Make sure to check out the vlog I did of the trip here.
