The weather has been so consistently brutal, it’s sort of all anyone can seem to talk about lately. I’m starting to wonder what we spend so much time talking about when the weather isn’t this bad. Just when I can’t handle the monotony of the cold and snowy weather, I’m excited to shake it up and get out of town the next couple weekends, and the next weekend I’m here it’ll already be March! Then spring will surely get this snow the heck out of here, right?

vintage photo

Just as I’m looking to move to a new apartment, my current dwelling walls have only recently been coming together. I am always gun-shy about hanging things up until I feel really good about them – I’d honestly rather have blank walls than just put ‘stuff’ up that I don’t love or doesn’t have some sort of significance to me.

I had seen on Pinterest a lot of tutorials of how to turn an old photo into a work of art, and after finding this darling picture of my dad, aunt, and glamorous grandma from the 40′s I decided to try this tutorial out (only using steps 1-3). It was so easy and quick, and I love having a bigger picture of my dad around – one that always makes me smile.

the 3 things

By February 6, 2014 Life

A friend of mine asked me the most random question the other day. ‘What 3 things are you hot on right now?’ I didn’t really know what he meant and normally would question so, but without much thought I just sort of ‘answered now, questioned later’ and replied with ‘green juice, ball gown skirts, and my new mascara with the goofy wand.’

Afterwards I asked him what prompted the question. He said it was just interesting to hear what sorts of things people answer with, from the serious to the frivolous. (Clearly mine were more on the latter side.) It’s had me thinking all week. First – I love random questions – they tend to get people talking and often turn into the most interesting and revealing conversations. Also, answers that come without much thought are usually the most honest. Second – I want to know what 3 things you’re loving this week! (don’t overthink it…)

{As for my 3…I can’t get enough juicy green goodness every morning – I usually make it myself in my Vitamix but there’s a couple places locally I love getting it from too. As for the ball gown skirts – I wore a vintage one last weekend to a charity event, and have decided I’d wear it every day for every occasion if I could. And the mascara I wrote about last week – it really is just that amazing!}

Valentines

Valentines{1. gorjana & griffin rings  2. markus lupfer lip pants  3. fujifilm instax camera  4. alice + olivia flats  5. alice + olivia heels  6. ban.do shoe clips  7. dylan’s candy bar pack}

A little roundup today of some fun Valentines Day gifts – all of which can be enjoyed long after the holiday everyone either loves or loves to hate is over. From a modern Polaroid camera that you can print instant pics from, to a festive and tasty tackle box from an iconic New York candy shop, to the most darling heart printed kicks, I think it’s just a good excuse to treat yourself to something sweet.
