Favorite Little Pins: Rustic Love

before I forget, Happy Friday everyone (or at least its Friday evening for me, despite what time zone WordPress seems to think I live in). and for what seems like the millionth time, I apologize to anyone who is waiting for the Liebster Award post. it’s been saved as a draft for like two weeks and I still need to think of some of my own questions and pick 11 nominees (which takes considerable time on its own and which I haven’t sat down with enough dedication to do). it will come eventually.

in the meantime, i’m doing another Favorite Little Pins segment. these are fun for me to do and put together, in addition to my styleboards. i’m in love with this campfire photograph by Steven Leonti, as well as the light wash living area with bare wood and the “naked” cake (frosting-less cakes seem to have become popular lately. my own friend Mariya made one last month). and while its been hard for us Washingtonians to visualize this week (we had a couple of days of really hot weather!), chunky sweater season is just around the corner! that and rain boots (waterproof shoes are a must or you will not make it long in seattle).

I’ve been slowly moving into my townhouse in seattle. I can’t wait to start unpacking my things and start taking pictures of it to show you guys! until I fall into my autumn routine, blog posts may be scattered and inconsistent for the next couple weeks so bear with me! feel free to drop me comments and like this post.




Favorite Little Pins: Black&White (Oh, and Food)

so, here’s the deal: I am a pinterest whore. seriously. #confessionsofayoungadult. I am pinning things all the time, I always have lots of pretty pictures and tempting products filtering through my homepage. so much inspiration and so many great ideas. the site has a wealth of fashion pictures, apartment and home ideas, links to cool and helpful articles, yummy and beautiful recipes, DIY projects, you name it. if you don’t have a Pinterest account I highly recommend that you do so!

(Disclaimer: Pinterest is a highly addicting website and may countless hours in your day. possible outcomes include but are not limited to failing to study for your exams, putting off your homework, losing track of time, forgetting to do simple tasks, exhibiting obsessive behavior towards your computer or other computerized device, and experiencing a sharp rush of excitement upon finding an amazing new site, product, or DIY. user discretion is advised.)

also Keep is an amazing place. it’s almost just like pinterest but it has a slightly smaller and more selective community. plus the design of the site is both simple and stunning, kudos to the web designer.

and on one last note, I just found out today that I have hit 500 followers on pinerest! so exciting, thanks everyone!

Favorite Little Pins: This Week on Pinterest

Fav little pins

anyone who knows me and follows me on Pinterest knows that I like to pin. a lot. more than a lot. some days it’s to the point where I actually begin to feel a little bad for my followers and remind myself to dial it back just a little bit. it’s been especially bad lately as my classes are wrapping up for this quarter and I am starting to spend more time in my college dorm room doing nothing. being completely and utterly bored. and brooding over my new-found single life (story for another time). or sitting outside in the UW quad being completely and utterly bored on my Samsung Galaxy S3 (there’s already an S4 now? wtf). and brooding some more. although not as much as when I’m sitting alone in my room. i just hop into my Pinterest app and bam, I’m rolling. there is literally no escape for me. i shamefully admit I often refresh the page several times to see if anything new has popped up since I last checked five seconds ago. #confessionsofayoungadult

anyway, above are just a couple of cute pins I pulled, nothing major. i’m very attracted to the pinks and the oranges, such pretty colors especially for spring and summer. bring on the sunshine, seattle! or just smothering heat without the actual sunshine, it sends that our way too. like today. and apparently tomorrow. the sun just hides behind this filmy layer of clouds. seriously, Washington?

by the way, I am indeed writing this at 1:44am. after complaining on Facebook that I just wanted to go to sleep because I was tired of thinking about my day and my week and the probably not so fun summer that lays ahead of me. turns out I’m just too agitated to sleep #Figures
