Wow, the first month of 2013 has gone by already! It’s time for another monthly update on my Reading Log. I love reading in January because of all the new books from Christmas! This month was no exception – so many fun books that I’ve been looking forward to getting my hands on for so… Continue reading Reading Log: January 2013
What I Wore Wednesday is my motivation for wearing the clothes I own, finding new ways to mix and match outfits, and not wearing the same three things all the time! I kept a fashion diary for the entire year of 2012, and now in 2013 I’m adding a bit about my days to go… Continue reading WIWW: January 20-26, 2013
This past weekend I started working on a new project – improve-piecing wonky letters! (Completely inspired by Tonya Ricucci’s Word Play Quilts that I finally got into my hands.) It was fun to learn something new – a little challenging at times, especially because I’m not used to winging it. Most of quilting is very… Continue reading In Progress
It’s been a while since I’ve shared some pics from Instagram sharing your favorite kitties Cora and Tali. I love looking back and remembering each cute moment… especially since these go all the way back to this past summer. Wow, I’ve got to keep up with these more often!
Time to get ready for the next holiday – Valentine’s Day! To valentine-ify the apartment, I looked for any space I could add some hearts and lovey dovey decor. I love this holiday! After pinning all the Valentine pins I could find, I liked this pin the most for inspiration: I don’t have any reclaimed… Continue reading Project Pinterest: Vintage Valentine Banner
I know I say it every time, but this is truly one of my favorite things… Birchbox, a monthly subscription to high-end beauty product samples. It’s the best piece of mail I get each month, that’s for sure! The $10/month fee is reasonable, and it’s completely curbed my random makeup purchases at the drugstore. I… Continue reading A Few of My Favorite Things: Birchbox
What I Wore Wednesday is my motivation for wearing the clothes I own, finding new ways to mix and match outfits, and not wearing the same three things all the time! A bit about my days to go along with the outfit, so these weekly check-ins are a nice journal of my life too! …… Continue reading WIWW: January 13-19, 2013
I never know how to write these kind of posts… but I’ll just dive right into it: That Girl Who Reads Books mentioned me for the Liebster Award! Thanks so much for thinking of me! And now, I have to make a confession… Laura at Casa del Hansen granted the same award… way back in… Continue reading The Liebster!
Cora is a bit of an attention hog. If I’m reading a book, she wants to sit on it. If Sam is on the computer, she wants to lay on the keyboard. If I’m getting dressed in the morning, she wants to roll around in front of the door. She’s just so cute, I can’t… Continue reading Meow Monday: Attention Hog
Last weekend was all about organization! I’m finally feeling all caught up from the holidays – it only took me half of January! Among other organizing projects, I transferred all pertinent information from my 2012 planner to my new planner. One thing I always struggle with each year is remembering everyone’s birthday before it’s too… Continue reading Project Pinterest: Birthday Calendar
