Cozy Autumn Breeze...

Everybody loves Autumn! The weather, the colors, the AMAZING food... Ahhh... It's fantastic!

Here are 3 lovely ideas to help you get into that cozy, happy harvest mood.

1.) A hot cup of coffee, tea, or even spicy apple cider is a sure-fire way to get that warm autumnal cuddly feeling.

Be sure to turn on your favorite music & grab a book to read!

2.) Chilly-time is sweater-time! This time of year is perfect for chunky sweaters and scarves. Pair them with some boots & a beanie and you are all set.

3.) Anything scented or flavored with cinnamon, sugar, or spice is always nice!! (As is rhyming...) Pull up some of your favorite holiday recipes & have some fun in the kitchen.

Our Top 13 Favorite Fourth of July Pins <3 

Pinterest is a dream world for any teen girl. Hidden treasures are buried beneath endless pages of party ideas, Disney quotes, fashion ideas, and wedding dream boards. A girl can wistfully spend her days planning for her future family, the cake she will bake for her future husband, and the clothes she will dress her future children in. Sadly, we can spend less time thinking about tomorrow, than we do actually taking those ideas, and making them happen today! Here are some surefire ideas to beat the summertime blues, tackle boredom, and spice up your life! Start planning how you will celebrate the Fourth of July!

Not sure where to get started? No worries, 'cause we're ready to share our Top 13 Favorite Fourth of July Pins! 

1) Starry Nail Art

2) Morning Hair Prep...

3) Outfit Inspiration 

Love this look! It's simple, girly, and elegant. The jean cardigan adds a whisper of good ole' American pride, without being too patriotic. ;)  

4) Wear Your Colors

Dress up a simple pair of jeans, by adding some adorable red, white and blue cuffs! This DIY is perfect for the girl who doesn't know what to wear on the Fourth!

5) Yummy Breakfast

Mini pancakes with strawberries, blueberries, whipped cream and bananas! 

6) Celebrate Freedom

"So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed." John 8:38. 
Our freedom wasn't free. Jesus paid the highest price, so that we could walk in His freedom everyday of our lives! That is surely a reason to celebrate! Use your freedom to love others and serve Him!
Reach others with acts of love, to light up just like an illuminating sparkler, or a burning glow stick, on the Fourth of July. <3  

7) Afternoon Snack

Put flavored coconut water and assorted fruits in a popsicle mold. Let cool in freezer for several hours. Pull out in the afternoon for a yummy (and healthy) treat.

10) All Lit Up

8) Frozen Yummies

Yogurt + strawberries + blueberries +
waffle cones + the freezer =
a super yummy frozen Fourth of July snack! 

9) I Scream,
You Scream...

Dip an ice-cream sandwich into red white and blue sprinkles. ;)

Decorate your midnight, firework viewing party space with this adorable Mason Jar Lanterns! Learn to make your own here.  

11) Best Idea Ever

Summertime Math:
Chocolate chip cookies +

Roasted marshmallows =


(Another fun flavor favorite is 'smores on peanut butter cookies!) 

12) Party Popcorn

No firework viewing show is complete without popcorn! Mow down on some dressed up kernels...add pretzels and chocolate candies for an amazing, sweet 'n salty mix! 

13) Start the Spark

Take fun pictures with your friends, using sparklers in the dark. (With your parents permission and supervision of course.)
