It’s the most
of the year! 🎅
Hey guys! Welcome back to Maggie’s Doodles ❄️ ‘Tis the season for Christmas collabs! 😍🎄
I did a playlist swap with Evin back in March of this year, and we had fun swapping songs and sharing what we thought of them! So I thought it would be festive and cheery to do a Christmas edition of that with Diamond! Get ready for a lengthy Diamond shoutout 😂
Diamond is a super nice blogger that I love getting to chat with! She shares stuffie posts on BABF (my main inspo for my stuffie posts!), lifestyle and other fun posts on I Have 12% of a Plan, and she’s a top contributor on LTBL! You’re missing out if you don’t follow her blogs, so I totally recommend you do 😍
Okie, on with the collab!
Here’s how this works: I sent her 5 Christmas songs I like, and she sent me 5 Christmas songs she likes. I’m listening to her songs today and reviewing them, and she’s reviewing my songs on her blog!
Let’s go 😎
