Hey everyone! I did a Dollar Tree mini haul of mini Christmas trees, ornaments, and more to decorate for the holidays with my sister! We filmed ourselves decorating our mini trees and I love how they turned out.
I know, I know. It’s only OCTOBER and Halloween hasn’t even passed yet… I’ve been hearing that Dollar Tree’s best holiday/Christmas items–especially for DIYing–sell out by the second week of November!
My tree (the blue one) ended up being around $6 total and Sarah (my sister) ended up building hers with about $4 total.
The only mini christmas tree skirt option from Dollar Tree was red and the bottom side was also showing the red so we decided to DIY our own christmas tree skirts.
It was fairly simple, you’ll only need some kind of material to cut to the side of the bottom of your Christmas tree, good scissors, and patience. Well, if you have better scissors than I did, you won’t need as much patience haha.
Best of luck in your own DIY decor/Dollar Tree holiday hauls and hope you have a wonderful holiday season! xx Sam
Hey guys! Here is my 4-year update and removal of the marbled contact paper applied onto my bathroom countertop.
I can’t believe I kept it on for so long and it’s time to remove it… so I can redecorate! Right after filming the removal, I went ahead and tackled applying more marbled contact paper from the same brand I used and this is what it looks like currently:
This time, I added some peel and stick backsplash tiles. I originally bought a pack of 10 12″x12″ sheets to use as my shower surround backsplash but all of the little squares would be too much next to the wallpaper–so I had plenty to play around with and figured out different ideas for them.
Stay tuned for an upcoming video of what redo-ing the marbled contact paper + adding backsplash tile will be like! Also, I’m potentially putting grey wood grain contact paper onto the cabinets…
Hey guys! Sarah and I flew down to Texas to visit our cousin Daniel in Dallas for a week this past summer. We also road-tripped to Austin and declared BUC-EE’s or bust.
I guess things really are bigger in Texas… we pit-stopped at the World’s Largest Convenience store! It had 60+ gas station pumps as well.

This year it was 5 degrees and below on my birthday–yes, in Fahrenheit–so I couldn’t really run around in Boston like I originally planned to. At least it gave me the opportunity to get my photos [inserted below] done indoors before heading out to see a movie and have dinner with my friend, Nina.
This is a quick vlog-styled how-to video I edited on achieving birthday photos using a paper backdrop and some confetti and balloon props. Please do try this at home with the best of luck from me.
Hey there! I recently got my hands on Korean “Acne Pimple Master Patches” that apparently makes your pimples disappear or drastically reduce them overnight!
I made a video demo and review of them on YouTube:
Did it work? YES.
Will I buy it again? YES.
I highly recommend that you at least try this because it flattens out your pimple overnight and the pus comes right off with the sticker instead of worrying about getting bacteria inside and damaging skin cells around your pimples.
The stickers seem to work best on flatter facial features because it stuck on all night on my forehead but was halfway peeling off when I used it on my upper lip overnight.
Feel free to ask me any questions about this product; I’m not an expert and I was not sponsored to review this but I think I know what I’m doing!
I use a medium-sized ban.do agenda and ever since I joined a Facebook group called Planners Gone Wild, I have officially fallen in love with planning even more than before! These are a few of the shops that I have bought or received stickers from so far. I have 2 more orders on the way too! (One from FabulouslyPlannedCo again and another from PlanToPlan on Etsy.) I will definitely be making a new post about those.
I didn’t realize some of these were common “clip art” stickers that several shops use but I am in love with the cute armoire design. I’m either going to use it for my “laundry day” or days where I clean my room in general. The full boxes are from FabulouslyPlannedCo’s Planner Girl Collection. These are definitely going into my ban.do agenda for a busy college work week.
I actually won these kits from TwinSixteen on Etsy through the Planners Gone Wild group on Facebook. I joined in August and ended up winning from Mari’s RAK. They are the only kits I have so far because I am too afraid to commit to a full set for a week or month. I especially love how she named one of them Past Elle instead of just Pastel.
This set right here is my first official small-business planner stickers order! Christy was having a $1 sticker sheets sale to help save her house and I ordered several sheets. As you can see, I’m an icon sticker girl, I’ve used at least a few from each sheet already and I love the quality, especially for the price! Christy’s sheets are conveniently hole punched too, I’ve seen other shops who charge extra for that. Even with the good deal, she included a little sampler set and I cannot wait to use those.
Comment down below if you have any sticker shop recommendations. I’m ready to continue building my collection!
