Hi, my name is Mackenzie and I’m a thriftaholic. I’m a thriftaholic and proud. However, I wasn’t always a fan of thrifting. The first time I entered a thrift store, I was overwhelmed by the chaotic array of clothing. And quite frankly, didn’t like the idea of wearing someone else’s clothes.
A few months later, and here I am. What started out as a hobby turned into a major lifestyle change. I went from shopping at Forever 21 and Target to spending my days at the Salvation Army and Goodwill. (more…)

Yeah high school. Been there, done that. But, oh does this movie bring back memories.
Spoilers Included: In the Netflix original movie, To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before, Lara Jean Song Convey, the main protagonist, copes with her intense crushes by writing wannabe baes top-secret love letters…with no intentions of mailing them of course. However when Lara’s younger sister, Kitty, hears word of these secret notes, let’s just say it’s a total nightmare. (more…)
Once in a lifetime opportunities only happen well, once in a lifetime. They are rare. Chase them. Fight for them. Cherish them. Last weekend, my scholastic bowl team and I hit the big city. A few months ago my team members and I heard news that we, a small group of teens from a small school and small town, earned a spot in the National Academic Quiz Tournament. Overwhelmed and excited by this amazing news, we spent hours upon hours each day until the competition studying and fundraising money for our trip. But last Thursday, the countdown was over. The hard work paid off. The seven of us boarded the plane. Next stop: Chicago! (more…)

Hi friends!! How is everyone’s week so far? My week in one word- cold. It has been snowing nonstop!! I haven’t had school since last Friday, because my district closed on both Tuesday and Wednesday! Not going to lie though, it was pretty relaxing to sip coffee and binge watch my latest obsession on Netflix – Scandal! Who has watched it before? Olivia Pope, the main character, is my inspiration. Her style is so elegant, yet bold. And he personality is well just the same! But anyway back to today’s post, in my Seven Days One Sec Week 21 weekly wrap up, I mentioned that Monday was my birthday. I also promised to share some of my gifts with you! I’m really excited to show you some of these items. So let’s get to it! As always thank you so much for reading. XO, MK. (more…)
Hi friends!! Yesterday was my last semi formal event at my school!! So, I thought it would be fun to blog my events throughout the day! Now I am going to be completely honest with you guys, I am the girliest girl of all time, but semi preparations, one word- UGH. Sure, I love getting my hair and makeup done, the glitter, the sparkles, the glamour, but it just gets a little too stressful. And there are endless photos, I mean yes I love a good photoshoot, but a thousand parents with a thousand cameras all pointing and yelling…I am going to have to pass. But at the end of the day, it’s a great time with my friends and I guess that’s what matters the most. In today’s post, I did a little timeline of my day, but trust me it wasn’t as cut and dry as it seems. I hope you enjoy the small glimpse into my life! I might start to do more of these posts blogging my day if you guys enjoy it! As always, thanks so much for reading and have an amazing and sparkly and fabulous New Year’s Eve. XO, MK (more…)
