On writing for She Did What She Wanted and our Christmas in July gift exchange

If you’ve followed me for longer than two seconds, you’ve probably seen me talk about She Did What She Wanted, a site that I write for every week or so. Writing for SDWSW has been one of the highlights of my year so far, and I wanted to write a quick little post to explain what it’s about, what I’ve done and learned so far, and why every one of you needs to check it out and start reading it if you haven’t yet.

SDWSW was started by Christina and Emma, two very good friends of mine who I’ve known for a while. When I saw they were looking for contributing writers, I immediately sent Christina a message telling her that this was something I wanted to be a part of. She Did What She Wanted is a girl collective, a site where girls from all backgrounds and walks of life share their stories and talk about anything and everything that affects us, that we’ve learned from, and that we want other girls to know.

It’s certainly special to be a part of a group of girls who are all incredibly smart, who have beautiful minds and souls, and who create content that I regularly look forward to reading. When I first joined the site, there were only a handful of us, but we’ve grown to be a staff of 21, plus guest writers and contributors who send in their words and works to us. Watching the site grow has been a privilege and something I’m so happy to have gotten to witness and I can’t wait to see where it goes next. It truly is a labor of hard work and love from Christina, Emma, and the rest of the girls.

We had a little SDWSW Christmas in July gift exchange with the girls from the site and I was so excited to see a package for me in my mailbox yesterday! Turns out the lovely Majelle was my Secret Santa and she really nailed my present because I love everything and it’s absolutely perfect.

First, she got me a 16-month planner that is absolutely adorable and I can’t wait until I can start using it! Coincidentally, it starts the week that I start school, which couldn’t have been more perfect.

I’m so happy with my presents and I can’t wait to try out my new lipsticks! You guys know nothing makes me happier than a good new lipstick.

I’ll be in Jacksonville for a concert until tomorrow but except a post tomorrow or Thursday about my adventures and the concert I’ll be going to tonight. Feel free to follow my adventures on instagram until then!
