Hello + Spring Outfit

Hey friends!

Wow, it’s been a while since I’ve done a post on here. Sorry I’ve been MIA.

Life has been crazy busy for me lately. As you all know, my family is in the process of renovating a house and moving! We are moving tomorrow! WOHOO!

We are so excited but exhausted.

I’m so excited to move yet I want to stay at the same time. I know we’re moving to a bigger house and that I’ll be able to have some opportunities to do more things. And I’m moving closer to my best friends.

But I’m sad to leave the house I’ve grown up in, the people I’ve grown close to, and just leaving. But the Lord has wonderful plans in store and I’m excited.

I wanted to check in and tell you all hi and that I’ve missed you. I miss writing but I have not had the time to do it.

I also wanted to do a little fashion post since it’s been forever since I last did one!

Get here

I got this jumpsuit from Target. It is so comfortable, cute and fashionable! And, IT HAS POCKETS!!! It runs big so I got a size S. Target has a lot of cute jumpsuits this year, go check em’ out! Here

This jacket is from TJ Maxx. TJ Maxx has some awesome stuff. My sister found it for me while she was shopping. Thanks Danielle! 😍

Similar ones

And last but not least, THE SHOES! These are really comfortable and I LOVE THEM! They go with pretty much everything. I’ve had them for a few years already so they don’t sell them anymore. 😔 But I linked some similar ones!

I just posted a video on my channel. It’s an update on the house! Check it out here.

Have you ever moved? Do you like jumpsuits? Have any posts you’d like to see? Let me know in the comments! I love hearing from you and I’d love to hear your ideas!

Love, Cassia

Friendship + Friends Photoshoot

Hey friends!!!

I wanted to write about friendship today because God has blessed me with some pretty AMAZING friends!

Most of my friends live on the east coast which is kind of hard for me since I live in Illinois. 😑 I met them all at summer camp and we’ll see each other every year and then stay in touch for the rest of the year! 😆 Lots of facetiming, texting and letters! 

I also have my some of my best friends and close friends who live a few hours away. I don’t get to see them much, but hey, it’s better than nothing! 

I met a girl a few years ago in an orchestra group and we stayed in contact for a little while but then stopped talking. We saw each other at an event last year and were so excited to see each other. 

We see each other almost every week now which is so awesome! 

One thing I appreciate about my friends is that they are always there to pray for me.

Even if it’s the smallest thing to pray for, they’ll pray for it. 

Last year I grew so much closer to God and I had a bunch of my friends there helping me. They were always there to give me encouragement. To pray more and read my bible more. 

My older sister is one of my best friends and she has been an amazing friend and sister. She is a great example of what a Godly woman and older sister should be like.

I am so blessed with all of my amazing friends and I am so so thankful! 

If you don’t have any friends who are encouraging you in your walk with God, I would strongly encourage you to pray and ask God to help you find some friends like that. God has ceratinly blessed me and I want you to have the same experience as me.

Ok, now for some pictures from a photoshoot my best friend, her sister and I did last month on Valentines Day! We took over 200 pictures so here are just a few! Hope you enjoy our silliness! 😆 

(these were all taken with my iPhone 6 and edited on VSCO with the A6 preset)

We were laughing 99% of the time 😊

Whenever I visit we talk for hours and hours. We have so much to catch up on and just talk about silly stuff. ❤

My sweet Hannah! Love this girl to death. ❤❤❤ We used to call each other twin, we thought we looked so much alike. We even dressed up in the same outfit for an event and tricked people. 😂😊😏

This literally shows you our true personalities right here. We are so silly and very crazy!😆😉😝

LISA!! She is such an awesome amazing person! She is one of my closest friends and we have so much in common too! 😆❤

❤❤❤❤❤

For this picture we sat my phone on the trunk of a car. ❤ The things we girls do to take pictures 😂 Also, it took us a half hour to figure out what all of us were gonna wear. 🤦‍♀️😂🤣

 

Hope you enjoyed the pictures! ❤

Are you thankful for your friends? Has God put a certain person in your life who you don’t know where you’d be without them? Which was your favorite picture? Let me know in the comments!

My Top 5 Favorite Soundtracks Right Now

*from pexels*

Hey friends!

It has been a while since I last posted a music post, so I thought it was time for another one! 😆

I think I’ve told you all that I love soundtracks. And if you don’t remember, now you know! 😉 But ever since my older brother started showing me soundtracks I’ve loved them ever since. Me and my brothers listen to them so much we sometimes play a game on road trips where we have to guess the composer, the name of the song and what it’s from. It’s so fun!

I’ve been listening to mostly soundtracks lately. They just give me the chills. And if I’ve seen the movie, it makes it even better!

Ok, now for my 5 top favorites right now!

Hidden Figures:

HIDDEN FIGURES!!! WHERE DO I EVEN BEGIIIIIIIN?? Man oh man, this is such a good movie and soundtrack. If you haven’t watched it, I would totally recommend! It’s my second favorite movie! 😍 Check out this post to see what it’s about! 

Cinderella:

Cinderella is my favorite favorite movie!!! Such a cute movie! I love Lily James and she is the perfect Cinderella. The music is so beautiful and fun! I’ve seen this movie about 20 times. (maybe even more times) 😍😍😍

National Treasure:

First of all, this is a hilarious movie and so well made. Second, THE MUSIC IS SO GOOD! That’s all I’m gonna say about this one. 😊

The Italian Job:

I have never seen this movie, but the music is so great! 😏

Bolt:

I saw this movie when I was a little girl and hated it lol. It made me sad. But I love the soundtrack. It’s really really good! 😆

 

Just wanted to give a shout out to my brother. He took all these pictures (except for the top one from pexels) and edited them! He’s amazing right??

 

Do you like soundtracks? If so, what are your favorites? What is your favorite genre? Let me know in the comments! I love hearing from all of you!

15 Things You Probably Don’t Know About Me 😉

this was from last summer haha

Hey friends!

Wow, I am so sorry that I have been MIA. I’ve been super busy with school, other stuff and also just not having anything to post about.

Anyways……..

So I know pretty much every blogger does this kind of post haha, but Aria @ Aria Photo Blog recently did one and I realized I hadn’t done one in a while! So I’m going to tell you 15 things about me that you probably don’t know! (and some random photos that I found)

throwing leaves in the air is a classic fall picture!

I’ve never been out of the country: I know so crazy right??? Well not too crazy. But I am hoping to sometime soon! I have been to a lot of different states! I think I’ve been to a total of 21! Hoping to go to more soon!

I don’t really like dogs: I’m sorry but yes, it’s true. I know you all probably hate me now. 😉😭

I’m a sophomore in high school: Nothing to write about this one!

I love organizing: Yes! I love organizing! It just makes me feel so good after I’m done! Also if I have my music to jam to while I’m doing it that’s always a plus.

this was a few years ago! my sister and I did a photo shoot together! I was in a field of ragweed which I’m super allergic to haha, but didn’t realize it till after.

I was born in Elmhurst, IL: Not much I can say about this one either.

My favorite book is The Westing Game: This book is so good!!! It’s a mystery! (the best kind of books) I would 10/10 recommend reading this book! Most people have to read it twice to get it but after that you’ll LOVE it!

I got a phone when I was 15: I got a phone because I was starting to babysit! I got an Android for my first phone but now I have an iPhone!!! Having a phone is awesome, but sometimes I’m on it to much so I take a break off it!

The only country singer I like is Thomas Rhett: So I’ve never really liked country music. But Thomas Rhett is a really good singer and I love his songs! He sings about his wife Lauren in a lot of his songs and they are so sweet! He and his wife are Christians which is also so cool! I recommend listening to Life Changes and Sweetheart! 😆

my sister and I did a quick photo shoot before I left for a trip. as you can tell, we do a lot of fun little photo shoots! one of the benefits of having a sister who is a photographer lol.

The last movie I watched was: The last time I watched a movie was a few weeks ago! And it was Peter Rabbit. I’ve seen this movie about 5 or 6 times hehe. It’s so so good! If you haven’t seen it you should definitely check it out!

I’ve only been to the ocean once: Some of you might be freaking out right now. But yes only once. 😞 Buuuuut, I have been to the beach several times! But they were lakes not the ocean! The first time I went to the ocean was last year in June for my sister-in-laws bachelorette party! It was so awesome! I LOVE LOOOOOVE the ocean! I literally spent a solid hour or more in the water talking to my friend! SO AMAZING!

My favorite app is vsco: This app is pretty legit! It’s so fun! I use it to edit ALL of my photos! I would 10/10 recommend this app for editing photos! 😆

I love 😍 Chick-fil-a: Ok, WHO DOESN’T LOVE CHICK-FIL-A????? (I won’t hate you if you don’t like it though haha) It is the greatest place!!! First it has the most amazing food 😍😋😍, second the service is great, and third it’s a Christian place!!! I think it’s cool that it’s closed on Sunday since it’s a day of rest. Though sometimes that can be a bummer because sometimes we’ll say “hey let’s go to Chick-fil-a, oh wait, IT’S CLOSED 😭”.

not sure what’s going on with my face haha. I was second shooting a wedding with my big sis! this was in september of last year!

I’ve moved once: Only once! I was 8 when we moved! It was a hard move but I’m all good now!!!

My favorite store is old navy: Ok so probably 90% of my clothes are from old navy haha. But I love that store so much! 😍 They have the cutest stuff and really comfortable stuff too! I 10/10 recommend old navy to anybody!

I have blue eyes: Probably nobody reading this knows this fact about me hehe. But I do have blue eyes! Which is annoying sometimes because blue eyes are extra sensitive to the sun. 😭 But I’m thankful for my eyes and their color anyways!

Hope you enjoyed reading this post! What are some facts about you? I’d love to hear from all of you!

Love, Cassia

 

3 Books I’m Reading | A Series

Hey friends!

Today I’m starting a series! Every time I read 3 books I’ll do a post about those three books and tell you a little bit about them and what I thought!

I used to read allllll the time, but the past few years I haven’t been. I’m always doing something else or just don’t want to. So I decided that it was time to change that. Soo I got a bunch of books together and am going to read them all this year!

#1. Love Does by Bob Goff

I’ve read Love Does before, but it was a long time ago. I am enjoying it so much! It is full of funny/encouraging stories! Bob Goff, even though I haven’t met him, seems like an amazing, fun guy! He has a huge smile on his face in every picture he’s in and is an encouragement to so many people (including me). I whole heartedly recommend this book!

#2. The Genius of Generosity by Chip Ingram

Wow wow wow. This book was so good! It’s taught me a lot about how to manage my finances wisely and how to be generous! Chips story is so cool! I really recommend reading this one too!

#3. Radical by David Platt

Ok so I haven’t read this one yet. But I am so looking forward to reading it! David Platt also has a podcast called Radical.

What are some books that you enjoy? Let me know and I’ll check them out!

Love, Cassia
