Oh Hello You...Beautiful Things:

The dogs on this shirt...

Love the color and crochet detail of this dress.

Love this bright colored bedding.

 I want this wood card for my room. 

This pyramid shaped terrarium would be perfect for my home. 

As you might be able to tell, I'm itching to do some home decorating.  
Anything special catch your eye this month? I'd love to know. : )

Happy Weekend Everyone!

Find of the Day: Quote

"Instead of saying “I don’t have time” try saying “it’s not a priority,” and see how that feels. Often, that’s a perfectly adequate explanation. I have time to iron my sheets, I just don’t want to. But other things are harder. Try it: “I’m not going to edit your resume  sweetie, because it’s not a priority.” “I don’t go to the doctor because my health is not a priority.” If these phrases don’t sit well, that’s the point. Changing our language reminds us that time is a choice. If we don’t like how we’re spending an hour, we can choose differently."

Music List: June 2013

I've finally posted a new music playlist! 
Time to get my behind back into gear.   

In the moments I get to myself, I've realized that I've been in a sort of chilled out, slow, summer mode. I'm not one to embrace the extreme Florida heat, so scouting a shaded area or enjoying the beautiful weather from indoors (window wide open) seems more inviting then the feeling that I'm melting. 

I think my music selections reflect that as of late, something that would promote finding a place to enjoy the balmy weather and just relax, think, read, or hum along to the tunes...I don't know about you, but i'm doing some major daydreaming here. lol

How are you embracing the summer weather?

Strawberries, Cherries & This Music Video.

I love the original with Nancy Sinatra. This cover, however,  has grown on me quite a bit these past few days. 

Do you have a song currently on repeat that you'd like to share?

Summer Movie: The Kings of Summer

A comedy about 3 teenage boys who decide to run away into the woods to spend the Summer building a house and living off the land. All to get away from their "pesky" parents. What will go wrong? What will go right? What will these boys learn? This I have to see. :)

Any Summer movies that you are looking forward to seeing?

Color Infatuation: Blues & Whites

Now that spring has sprung and summer just around the corner, I find myself drawn to bold patterns and pops of color. I find wearing blues and whites together add a crisp, chic & light feel to any wardrobe: blue jeans, white tees, white dress with blue heels..I could go on. 

Here are a few photos of my current color combo obsession:

What colors/combos do you find yourself drawn to this spring season?

Hello You...Beautiful Things:

Would love to have this Heirloom Recipe Box

This fragrance is warm & amazing & think I'm going to have to buy it.

Love this mint & cream maxi dress

Pretty statement necklace

These glamorous hair ties
*I wonder if I can make a D.I.Y version hmm...

Spring cleaning is in full effect for me and with that my desire for all things D.I.Y. 

Anyone else been bitten by the spring cleaning bug or have any fun projects in the works? Or are you just happy to be able to throw open the windows and feel the warm breeze. :)

I want a pretty little house and 
a backyard with a tee-pee.
 Just like this one, minus the chicken...

I Am A Doodler...

On notebooks, napkins, blank or lined paper... Whenever I should be taking notes or giving my undivided attention. I tend to "wander off" into doodle land. I came across some that I did years ago, while sitting in class and during a company meeting (shame on me) In my defense I am told that people who doodle during meetings/lectures actually retain more then those who just sit and listen. 

I'm not sure why I saved this, but they do offer a glimpse of what was going through my crazy head at the time (I'm assuming?) Any fellow doodlers out there?? When do you find yourself more prone to doodling? (See above factoid and doodle on!) 

P.S. I think the word "doodle" is absolutely hilarious. I can't say it without laughing. :P

Paperman: An Animated Short

Disney featured this animated short in theaters in conjunction with the Wreck-It-Ralph movie. Now, I loved the Wreck-It film...but this 6 min short had me smiling, laughing and cheering (silently) in my seat.  I enjoyed every minute of it. I hope you enjoy this short as much as I did. 

Lovely day to all <3

To See: Hyde Park on Hudson

What can I say? I have a soft spot for history...okay and Bill Murray too.

This movie is based on true events regarding the first-ever visit of a reigning English monarch to America and they stay with F.D.R. no less. This I have to see.
