This week has been incredibly interesting. Like really interesting. I like it that way. But I have been thinking a lot this week, and thinking a lot is something that I don't like. Because I always over think everything. Blah blah blah.
Anyways, what I have been listening to in order to calm my nerves this week is Blind Pilot. Please: someone tell me WHY it took me so long to find out about this band?! Their sound is so perfect and just fits my everyday life so well. I've been playing their album nonstop this past week. If you havent heard of them please give them a listen. They will calm you and make you want to cuddle up on the couch with a cup of tea while you craft your little heart out. If you're into crafting that is.
Life has been looking good lately. Lets hope the good vibes are still coming my way.

Some days you have to just take pictures for no reason and maybe you look like a hipster in those pictures. But you know what? Thats okay. Because you feel good about yourself and you feel beautiful because of who you are, not what you're wearing.
That is all there is to it about this post. I feel beautiful, not because what I'm wearing but because I am me. I hope you all feel beautiful every day this week.
Have you all been having a good week?

Lately I have been feeling inspired. Its beautiful. I tend to always talk myself out of doing things because I lose the confidence in my creativity. But today, I'm feeling as though I have found "it". What is "it"? It is the very thing that I have been worried about for months. I think I found my future. I am promising myself that I will not change my mind again. I can't. And you know. I don't want to change it. Life has been beautiful lately. Its only going to keep being beautiful because I am staying positive.
"Trying to live an inspiring life puts the focus on others. I'm not sure it's wise to go about life trying to impress or gain approval from others. Instead I think we should focus on ourselves. Try to impress yourself. Try to top your best efforts. Set up your life, so in the end you will look back and be proud. And that's what I mean by living an inspired life."

Heeeeey guess what I have: my very first DIY! Valentines day is this week and maybe some of you are looking to getting creative this year because you're tired of the normal cards. Well I have your solution. I was looking through pinterest and came across these little felt hearts and then boom. I knew I had to make them for everyone that I love. I was a bit scared because I have never sewn anything before...in my life. I think it turned out pretty great for my first time. This is the diy that I had followed but I added my own flare to them. In the original felt hearts she does not have a tiny heart in the middle of them, in order to sew that little heart in the middle all you have to do is cut a smaller heart out of a different color felt and then sew it onto the larger heart before you follow her directions. They are really easy to create and take about 30 minutes to make one of them. Also they're a bit small so you can only fit skittles or m&ms into them. I think it would be cool if you stuck a little cute note inside of them also. So just get out there and get creative with them. Oh and maybe you can make them while you are listening to my valentines playlist ;)
Are you going to hand out valentines to your loved ones this year?

Spring is coming. Well at least for me it is. Living down south I only get like 2 weeks of real winter (without snow, not really a real winter right?) and then comes the hot weather, blaaaahh. I recently visited a garden center because we are looking to spruce up our garden. I thought these little poppy flower things were cute. So I took a picture. Anyways when I got home that day I was in the mood to make a valentines playlist. And so I did. Now I am sharing it with you guys because its quite lovely. These are songs that will get you in the mood to dance, think about your crush, cuddle with your boyfriend or just watch the cheesiest/romantic chick flick ever. Whatever the case, I hope these songs get you up and ready for Valentines day.

February is one of those months that seem to fly by. Its like I blink and its gone. Maybe its because its the shortest month of the year? Or maybe because its one of those months where you just feel really loved because hellloooo valentines day near. Who knows. All I know is that I am excited to feel the extra love from these upcoming days. This valentines season I am partnering up with my cousin to sell large cake balls, small cakes, and chocolate covered strawberries. I have a feeling that we are going to get a lot of orders and it might stress me out a bit, but seeing the reaction of the peoples faces when they bite into our desserts is totally priceless. Ahhh I cant wait.
