today's happiness.

Thursday, August 9, 2012


exhibit a: this ^^^^^^^^^^ song that i am obsessed with.
exhibit b: that my weekend starts right now.
exhibit c: that it is currently 64 degrees outside and cloudy and my windows are OPEN.
exhibit d: that my weekend will be spent with stefan salvatore.

you know, there were about a million things that pissed me off today... rude people. people that think a samsung something-or-other is better than my iphone. money. an empty gas tank. but when i think about the happy things in the day, i just can't be bothered with any of the bad. that's what it's all about, right?

happy (almost) weekend loves.

echo.

Monday, August 6, 2012


hello, hello
anybody out there? cause I don't hear a sound
alone, alone
i don't really know where the world is but i miss it now

i'm out on the edge and i'm screaming my name
like a fool at the top of my lungs
sometimes when i close my eyes i pretend i'm alright
but it's never enough

cause my echo, echo
is the only voice coming back
my shadow, shadow
is the only friend that I have

listen, listen
i would take a whisper if that's all you had to give
but it isn't, isn't
you could come and save me and try to chase the crazy right out of my head

i'm out on the edge and i'm screaming my name
like a fool at the top of my lungs
sometimes when i close my eyes i pretend i'm alright
but it's never enough

cause my echo, echo
is the only voice coming back
my shadow, shadow
is the only friend that i have

i don't wanna be down and
i just wanna feel alive and
get to see your face again

i don't wanna be down and
i just wanna feel alive and
get to see your face again

but 'til then
just my echo, my shadow
you're my only friend and i'm

i'm out on the edge and i'm screaming my name
like a fool at the top of my lungs
sometimes when i close my eyes i pretend i'm alright
but it's never enough

cause my echo, echo
oh my shadow, shadow

hello, hello
anybody out there?


happy things to end the week with.

Friday, August 3, 2012

+ my napping husband and dog lying next to me at this moment.
+ bubble gum pink nails.
+ hanging out with tyler hilton last night.
+ new shoes with purple, one and two.
+ friday nights like this one: in pajamas and watching the olympics.
+ the sprite with grenadine that i am sipping out of a mason jar right now.
+ my healing tattoo.
+ cookie butter brownies [that i can't stop making].

one not-so-happy thing is that my puppy is sick and i am worried to death about him. i know in my heart he is okay, but it still breaks my heart and i can't wait to get to the vet on monday. or better yet, to have his symptoms go away before then.

happy weekend loves.

[happy]. [inspiration from dolce vita].


hey jesus, help me out here
i'm alone with what sure ain't clear
cause every day I climb mountain

half the size than everyone else out there.

and I know i'm ungrateful
i got sunshine
plenty days full
but I don't mind a cloud
and a confrontation now 
just might be what I'm asking for.

a silhouette from a which to run 
and an absence from the fun
i don't work hard enough for.

but i'll be alright, yeah 
maybe I'll just be a man
or an individual doomed to be the lucky guy I am.

hey brother, i said, "listen, jesus,

i've been needing a word between us"
the queen of where I fall 
but the keys they end it all
she ain't getting on well. 

but i'll be alright, yea

maybe i'll just be a man
or an individual doomed to be the lucky guy I am 
an individual doomed to be the lucky guy I am.




summer go-to dresses.

summer go-to dresses.


all summer long i have been sloshing around in these easy-to-throw-on pieces.
colorful. cute. simple. i love them.
i, however, am now on the hunt for some seriously cute leggings,
so that i can continue to enjoy these beauts all fall.
the hunt is on!

 i love finding different ways to mix & match pieces that i already own from season to season.
and rediscovering something from wearing it in a new way.

also, i am just extremely excited for autumn in general.
be prepared to be bombarded with all things fall over here.

“because that’s what life is about. it’s about the time when you lay in the grass next to those you love. it’s about the color of the sky. it’s about a roaring fire on a winters evening, a cup of coffee on a cloudy morning. you’ve got to realize that everybody bleeds, and that everybody hurts. everybody laughs, and everybody smiles. that’s what it’s all about. that’s all it is. there is no set meaning of life, there is nothing that can be defined, or written. it’s a matter of sculpting your very own definition.”- unknown.
